Op Ed

NY Times - How an Online Mob Created a Playbook for a Culture War. Thanks Neutronbeam.
In the fall of 2014, a Deadspin writer, Kyle Wagner, presciently declared that Gamergate was the future of the culture wars and that 'the rhetorical weaponry and siegecraft of an internet comment section' would be 'brought to bear on our culture, not just at the fringes but at the center'."

Beamer, once they drink the poisoned koolaid it's impossible to coax them out of the sewer. But thanks for trying.

The cultists claiming others are the cultists.

Hoo boy, I look forward to the coming civil war~
I rest my case.

Right back at ya.

the only thing it calls out is SJW bullshit . Like swapping gender and race for SJW reasons.

and applauded for calling out racism against whites and sexism against males.

your characterization is exactly what i define gamergate as. Lies and lies. So much lies that they forgot they are telling a lie, for SJW purposes


Sure, the editor of the site constantly posting on the site about how low IQ Africa is, and using the N word, isn't racist at all...

If you can read OAG regularly and not be concerned, there is something broken inside of you.

And to the moron talking about others being brainwashed but cheering a "civil war..." It's baffling how important the products other people make are to you.

Conservative philosophy espouses "live and let live" and "personal freedom" creeds. So odd that you'd make an exception for this.

Gamergate is nothing but:

1. how the liberal and mass media lie about harassment by male gamers to push their SJW feminist agenda.

Yeah, and liberal media like the NYT and their agenda don't factor into things at all. Wry

Yeah, basically you have people who need a cause or purpose in life, and even better if it puts them in a position of power. Branding people as racists, xenophobes, whatever...it's all just a rallying cry for the power hungry.
Lib media pours gas on the fire.

You got a single fact to back that up?

Something no big deal became an excuse for you to call a woman a white,

Oh my god Beamer, you can't just tell someone they're white!

Y'know, it took me several tries, and I still couldn't get my phone to say "whore"

Clearly your phone is on a depression quest.

Fixed that for you.

So what did the FBI do to the primary figures of GamerGate who orchestrated the criminal activity?
14 posts in 16 years yet somehow you've managed to quote me twice. I'd say I felt honored but the feeling is more akin to wanting to wirebrush my brain.

Gamergate is exactly what it appears to be: a relatively small and very loud group of video game "journalists" and activists who claim that their goals were to bring attention to and fight back against organized harassment in the gaming-industrial complex, defined by the campaigns of coordinated articles to exaggerate the extent of any harassment that may have occurred. This was done to promote and strengthen their own progressive agendas into the gaming industry and to silence any of their critics.

Fixed that for you.

The biggest thing that bothered me with the gamergate saga is how universal ugly truths of humanity somehow became a specific problem with gamers. I know everyone has heard more than one person demean or harass a woman - call her a 'whore' for doing the same thing that guys proudly go out to do every weekend, and the like - who hasn't touched a videogame since they were ten. Intolerant and insensitive people exist; that some play games doesn't define an entire culture, but that was the takeaway.
Funny, the biggest thing that bothered -me- about gamergate was how many gamers vehemently denied that any such harassment was happening. That's -still- the big takeaway, in my book. You can find a dozen examples right here on bluesnews, if you take a few minutes and look back.

And frankly, fuck those guys, I refuse to share any sense of community with those assholes, any more than I would share a sense of community with monsters like Epstein and Trump (and for the same reasons).
Well said.
