A sleep deprived twitter rant slightly expanded.
Original Rant in Bold, Comments in Italics
The Paradox of GamerGate was that the last desperate stand of Western Masculinity boiled down to, “Bitch, get away from my videogames!”
-What I meant here was that simultaneously the stakes were both absurdly low (it’s just videogames) and absurdly high (it’s about 100 Billion in future US government education grants and about the very fabric of Western Civilization.)
The Long March of cultural Marxism through the fabric of Western Civilization was halted by a bunch of fans of Japanese videogames.
-One of the more common jokes during GamerGate was comparing the whole situation to a group a friends who set out on a seemingly harmless errand and then find themselves fighting to save the world from an unspeakable evil. This sort of story is typical of Japanese style RPGs
The line in the sand meant nothing. Yet the fact that the line had been drawn meant everything.
It was not the Great Men of the West who faced the madness and declared, “We hold THIS line! They go no farther!
It was the weakest and most vulnerable men who carried the day. The cripples, the freaks, the outcasts.
There was nothing that they could take from us. We had already lost everything but when they finally came to finish us off we found each other.
Thus the Enemies of the West found themselves fighting autistic bronymen and getting their smug hipster asses kicked.
They set out to bully teenager boys who played Halo and found themselves in a Fourth Generational War against wargamers and history buffs.
-Welcome to CURRENT YEAR cupcakes. From this point forward you fuck with one Gamer you fuck with us all.
Like the Alamo GamerGate’s desperate stand against impossible odds inspired others. New life was bred into SadPuppies.
-The fight against the Spanish Armada would have been a better analogy but I seriously needed to go to bed and the Alamo was the first thing that came to mind.
And then Rabidpuppies was launched not as a defence against SOCJUS but as a direct assault into territory long since conquered and occupied by the Enemy.
Now everywhere you look the tide is turning. The War for the Heart of Geekdom still rages but now the Enemy are panicked and confused.
–What I refer to as The War for the Heart of Geekdom is of course part of the larger cultural war but because geek fandoms are so small and specialized it’s very easy to see what is going on and what trends are happening. Since 99% of Male SJWs are gammas geek spaces are forever infested with SJWs or confused aimless men who are vulnerable to female SJW manipulation. Non-SJW geeks must forever be on the alert for such dangers and be prepared to fight the great culture war on a extremely small and often petty scale.
I’ll end with this.
Quick end note: To any readers who weren’t involved in GamerGate. Imagine two great armies of sweaty nerdmen, furries, otherkin and that guy Tom who does your taxes; fighting tooth and claw with everything they got, no where to retreat and no mercy for the vanquished.
Now imagine the fate of Western Civilization hanging in the balance.
That was GamerGate! I was not heavily involved but I more or less watched the whole thing from the beginning. Every step of the way it was absolutely absurd and absolutely the most hilarious thing ever witnessed on the planet Earth; especially those first six months. I lost 20lbs in Sept 2014 because I was glued to my computer screen watching the glorious insanity, (actually forgetting to eat.)
Those events also introduced me to a lot of the figures who would later form the emerging core of the Alt-Right and eventually gave me the nerve to start blogging.
