I don't see the guy as a crybully at all.

A crybully is someone who hides behind victimhood to avoid the consequences of their actions. The difference her is that Jeremy is not trying to back away from his opinions of Sprankle, he is pushing back against the campaign to smear him. People are being encouraged to go after him IRL by publishing his address. People have a right to be dicks, even cynical dicks, without a mob spreading lies to justify attempts to harm them. The SJW mob tactics are a problem regardless of who they are directed at.
This seems to be a gendered position...

I'm not prejudicially anti-EU, but I don't think it can work in the same way it's been working so far. Less unilateral decisions, more accountability, less austerity and more attention to local and regional realities instead of trying to make all countries conform to German/Benelux economic and social standards could make the Union work much better.

One of the first videos that came out when Jeremy's story broke was just someone posting clips of his own videos and pics from his Twitter feeds. He's a moron who thinks it's funny to say things like "wouldn't it be funny if someone went to PAX just to troll this person I dislike?" Then when called on it "I was just joking bro." Even if you're maximally charitable that it wasn't incitement, if he's too much of a giant fucking retard to realize that normal people do not look fondly on people who advocate trolling or identify as trolls proudly, then fuck him. It's this irritating shit that's popping up everywhere. Dumb fucks think the best way to respond to SJW over-sensitivity is to become deliberately provocative edgelord memefaggots. Fuck 'em all.

As I said, it's cynical. This is exactly the reaction he wanted. There's nothing WotC can do to actually "punish" him. It's the same shit as any SJW/feminist who goes fishing for someone to "harass" them so they can whine on camera and plug their Patreon.

Certainly true, the completely opaque bureaucracy needs an overhaul. Glittering example, the EU "Constitution" of which the leadership failed to explain what it was or, pardon le mot, constituted.

It’s bad enough having third world muslims wandering around trying to make sense of a western liberal secular democracy (and Victoria’s Secret. Now we have to factor in mullah’s under mental medical care plans driving around.

/tg/ had a thread up where people were discussing Jeremy's case. Here's some people who are sympathetic to his content and still think the guy's a moron:
https://i.imgur.com/3XeOBTY.png

The whole lawsuit thing is hilarious. The earlier referenced "Wizards stole my property!" shit refers to them closing his Magic Online account, where people buy digital cards with real money, and he thinks this is equivalent to theft. If this suit even gets off the ground it's going to immediately trip and fall down the stairs.

I really don't care about what people think of Jeremy or how strong his legal case is. The fact is that the SJW mob is SJWing. The correct repsonse to Jeremy's arseholery is to call him an arsehole, not to encourage people to send shit to his home and lie about what he has done. We have all the usual crap about feeling persecuted and not feeling safe from people who are in no way affected by the drama and, as usual, this is used as justification for overboard behaviour. The invention of crimes to justify witch hunting is the issue. The principle is independent of the players.

Something Weinstein said on Joe Rogan's podcast is very pertinent here. He is clear on the fact that there are players behind the scenes with an agenda who are egging on people to use accusations of racism/misogyny/transphobia as a battering ram to squash opposition. He claims that Evergreen personnel tiptoed around Naima Lowe for fear of angering the beast. She held power and without Weinstein's exposure of the climate at Evergreen she would still be exercising that power. Perhaps the culture hasn't changed much there, but this tactic of using unfounded, emotionally charged accusations needs to be defanged. The hate mob going after Jeremy are a manifestation of that culture.

If you're just wanting me to say "harassment campaigns are wrong" then fine, I just said that.

Doesn't mean I feel compelled to ride to the defense of every person who gets targeted for harassment, especially morons like Jeremy or Anita Sarkeesian who go baiting for it. Yes, in principle, people going after you, doxing, etc. is wrong.

That said we're seeing the common SJW tactic of "conflate the large group of people talking shit about me with the relatively tiny group of people actually crossing the line" being played out by Jeremy. People who make videos about his behavior and preface it by saying "don't send hate to Jeremy" (you know, like what Sargon used to say when he'd make videos about Anita), he also counts as part of his "hate mob." Everyone who isn't riding to his defense is aiding and abetting the SJWs.

Fuck that noise. That's where I completely abandon the guy to fend for himself.

He can have my opinion on Europe if he likes, Europe is a wonderful place with a beautiful rich tapestry of culture, history and architecture, stunning natural geography ranging from the fjords of Norway, the lochs and lakes of the British Isles, the mountains of the Alps and Pyrenees, the sun kissed beaches of Spain. The succulent food and wine from France and Italy, the stunning castles of Germany, the great country houses of England, the picturesque islands of Greece. .. Tell me when to stop!

My opinion on the EU is that it is a stinking cesspool of corruption, greed, hypocrisy, arrogance, incompetence, and unaccountable hubris run by unelected undemocratic dangerous bullies. Brexit will go down in history as the single most important decision Britain has made in the fight to keep her sovereignty since WW2 and the quicker we're out the better.

Here is the reason we are the West. We are the children of the Greeks. No other civilization is. The Greeks were foxes, everyone else were hedgehogs. Everywhere else saw the dogma of their religion lead them into a perpetual dark age of thinking. This almost happened in the West, but in the end the Greek way of looking at the world with curious eyes won out. The West's concept of religion had to be retooled to fit within the Greek cultures insatiable curiousity of the world around them.

Greek culture gave us what Adler called The Great Conversation. It gave the West a process to change our very ways of thinking. This is how slavery ended, how democracy arose. This happened nowhere else. And couldn't. Greek culture gave us the Renaissance, it ignited in the West that curiousity of the World that had lain dormant since the demise of Athens. It gave us the ability, the desire for the Reformation.

We are the children of the Greeks. And if you can't understand that and appreciate it, you are not Western. And never will be. Leave your dogmas at the door of Western civilization if you wish to enter it and take part in the West's Great Conversation with the tools Greek culture gave you to engage in it.

Otherwise, stay the hell out.

Don't know much about Hamble so I've just wasted some time watching some of his stuff. Have to say that I find the guy refreshing and your comparison to Sarkeesian extreme. He doesn't shy away from taking on opposing arguments and contrary to your opinion he is very adamant about not holding people responsible for what their subscribers do. He is very clear about specifying that the issue is their hypocrisy in blaming harassment of others on him while taking no responsibility for the harassment he gets.

Re the 40,000 email rape case:
"Around 30 rape cases about to go to trial are to be reviewed immediately and "scores" more will be looked at.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick admitted that police and prosecutors had made mistakes.

She said the 30 cases would not be reinvestigated, but would be reviewed to make sure everything that should have been disclosed had been.

The police have a duty to disclose any material to the defence that might support their case. If disclosure fails, innocent people go to jail, says the BBC's legal correspondent Clive Coleman.

"We need to learn lessons," Ms Dick told BBC Radio London, and insisted her officers were professional and fair with a "very complex job" to do."
Wait, what is the name of the female commissioner reviewing rape cases?

Again, this is a guy who has in the past said wouldn't it be funny if someone if someone went to PAX to troll a guy he didn't like. Sorry, but it's not just hardcore rabid SJWs who would interpret that as incitement.

This was his response to someone who threw his own clips and screencaps in his face and nothing more:

Nazi Prez Trump commutes sentence of fellow white collar criminal...or ZOG house-Goy Trump shows his hand again? I dunno. TYT & Brother Nate can sort it out. There's a joke in there somewhere involving Kosher meatpacking in the current political climate, but I can't manage right now (nudges Billy).

"Trump Commutes Jail Sentence Of Sholom Rubashkin, Kosher Meat Exec"

"Jailed kosher meat executive Sholom Rubashkin, whose Iowa-based meatpacking firm Agriprocessors was the subject of what at the time was the largest immigration raid in U.S. history, will go free following a commutation issued Wednesday evening by President Trump.

Rubashkin’s firm was the subject of a major Forward investigative series in 2006 and 2007. The Forward uncovered poor treatment of workers and animals at the plant.

In 2009, Rubashkin was found guilty of 86 counts of bank fraud and sentenced to 27 years in prison. In the years since, the Chabad Lubavitch Hasidic group, of which he is a member, and other Orthodox Jews have campaigned for his freedom.

In a statement, the White House said that the commutation was not a pardon. “It does not vacate Mr. Rubashkin’s conviction, and it leaves in place a term of supervised release and a substantial restitution obligation,” the White House said."

I hate being stuck behind some idiot in Poundland who hasn't calculated how much their goods cost and waits until the assistant rings it up before counting out their money.

Kraut & Tea - uses 'by any means necessary' tactics to push back against race-realists on the 'Alt-Right'. To no good effect.

People (well Vee & Sargon for two), start to take a closer look at anti-SJW gadfly, and all round shit-stirrer Coach Red Pill.

Interesting times.


Well it's a break from the grim reality of life in Australia or South Africa, I suppose.
Pretty much. Andy Warski has used the whole thing to center "the drama" on himself, because Jeff Holliday lied to him about it (wrong, but kinda understandable given the situation).

The absolute best thing about it all, is how they have all repeatedly invited Jim Metokur into their streams who is no doubt preparing a weapons-grade roasting vid.

Dancing always seemed like a hell of a lot of effort for an activity where your genitals aren't actually touching.

Maybe some of this does make him a hypocrite by SJW / Progressive standards.

But I have to hope that outrage culture manages to keel over and die at some point - and not be seen as a useful tool for gotcha moments when you happen to disagree with someone politically.

I actually agree. However, there's something incredibly enjoyable about watching an SJW being force-fed the very bullshit he/she used to coat the enemy. Fight fire with fire and all that good stuff.

Well there is Henrik Palmgren.

This is a fairly interesting interview from a couple of years ago. Again, treat it as an OP.



Men are good at interviews. Women bring visual colour and movement to the talking head genre. PJ Watson crosses over with his bombastic cut through style.

But really. Most of this messaging is about overblowing the right POV to offset the BS fed in from the lib-left. Hopefully this will create some fact based awareness that we’re not living in a global safe-space where self loathing is a viable luxury.

Security can only come from some form of collectivisation of thought and effort. The secular all men are islands of rational thought line with it’s assumed convergence on utopia is pretty much bunk.

That sucks. So, no chance you'll James Damore them?
I was thinking about this today in work, but I'm not sure what my Damore style career suicide note would even contain.

The non-profit/3rd-sector organisation I work for is ever so slightly different to Google, not least when it comes to employee demographics. Women make up around 70-75% of the staff and are even more highly represented in management - the current CEO, her predecessor, and 9 out of 11 department managers are all women. The only department that's a bastion of patriarchal male supremacy is IT support (where I work, living stereotype that I am). I used my IT bod privileges to have a look at the company payroll and on average women are earning nearly 30% more than male employees.

A memo arguing that this disparity favouring women is probably down to choice rather than discrimination against men probably wouldn't stir up quite as much controversy as when the sexes were reversed. If I embraced identity politics to demand affirmative action for the oppressed menfolk I might cause a shitstorm, but even if I was feeling that self destructive I'm not quite that much of a hypocrite. I suppose I could still get into trouble for daring to imply that women aren't actually being oppressed and underpaid like the diversity groups claim.

Diversity events aside, there hasn't really been much pressure to replace my IT department's problematically straight white men with disabled transwomen of colour. Elsewhere in the company the disgusting whiteness of the staff has been noted and there has been a push to increase racial diversity. That's not such an easy thing to do in rural North Wales, where ethnic minorities really are a small minority (only around 1% of the population is black or Asian). I can remember the HR manager getting excited because a disabled black woman and a Muslim man had both applied for the same entry level job - they were both hired on the spot even though there was only one position open. I'm quite happy to fly under the diversity radar for as long as possible.

I'm not convinced that many of our managers truly care about "diversity and inclusion" - they'll just play along because it'd harm them if they didn't. Holding a diversity event and completing the accompanying course gets them officially certified as diverse, complete with a diversity certificate to hang on the wall to prove it. Stuff like diversity awards gives them a chance to network (i.e. drink bubbly and scoff canapés) with local politicians, and that does provide us with free publicity and material for a feel good press release. Whether women-only team building and leadership/confidence training actually has a use, the ladies offered it aren't going to turn down a tax payer funded jolly out of the office.

I'm trying not to dox myself, but here are a few videos to give you an idea of the kind of thing I'm blathering about.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGX_Z-z_AG0
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPXxYNd3weY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr0bsjKbPqg

I'm not sure if you get the same kind of thing on the other side of the pond. It can all be cringe inducing and more than a bit annoying, but in my workplace most of it seems mostly harmless, as long as nobody actually tries to put diversity theory into practice...

The new Star Wars is as good as they say. Most regard Return of the Jedi as the weakest in the series, and while I'll always love it I have to agree the best moments in it only work because of the steam that had been built up in Empire Strikes Back. This on the other hand builds a new a new entry to that is worthy of the legendary material it adds to, and has to mop up after the mess Force Awakens made in the process. Some of the most glaring issues I had with that movie are solved in this one, and solved so elegantly that they work independtly even if you've never seen The Force Awakens (lines of dialogue that could have come right out of the mouths of complaining fans, but also serve as great character beats given how they're set up). Rian Johnson hit it out of the park.
Couldn't disagree more. it is as bad as they say. For context, I'm not a big Star Wars fan, consider A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back the only good films of the series (very good in the case of Empire Strikes Back). Return of the Jedi was plain bad, and the prequels a travesty. I was lukewarm to marginally positive on both The Force Awakens and Rogue One. Still have an emotional connection to the franchise, I think mainly because A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back came out when I was the perfect ages for them (10 and 14 respectively).I'd put this one at the level of the prequels, although the actual act of watching it was far more unpleasant.

The plot holes, deux ex machinas, useless contrivances, and pointless side plots could fill an entire Pit page. The attempts at broad comedy were not only ill-conceived but a complete failure. Not a single laugh at the broad comedy in the theater I saw it, just silence so complete that I could hear people shifting uncomfortably in their seats. But when has broad comedy ever worked in Star Wars? Far from solving issues with TFA, it took the things that could be built on and ground them into dust. While TFA was too derivative, it did introduce a new main protagonist and big-bad that fans cared about. There are probably 500 YouTube fan videos speculating on Snoke's identity, and only a slightly lesser number on Rey's ancestry. I was willing to overlook Rey's Mary Sue-ness in TFA because I was confident that we'd later discover her parentage gave her super powerful inate force abilities (my personal theory was that she was a Kenobi). So now I just have to concede that she is indeed a Mary Sue, and Last Jedi commits the cardinal sequel sin of not just being shit, but making its predecessors shittier. This goes to the long established characters as well. Luke is now a craven asshole, who dies inexplicably after a no-risk final act. The Luke/Yoda meeting should have been emotionally resonant, but was empty and just goofy, with Yoda looking bizarre and inexplicably acting like the goofball character he was playing to test Luke when they first met. Over and over again the movie preached about how the past didn't matter anymore, it was only the future that counted, symbolized by Luke's and then Yoda's desire to destroy the ancient Jedi tree. How could Star Wars fans not take that as a slap in the face.

The new characters introduced here offer nothing to look forward to. Who cares about the further exploits of Rose or the inevitable redemption arc of DJ. Can you even imagine 500 Rose or DJ YouTube fan videos? The one positive thing to look forward to is the Plinkett demolition hopefully coming in the next 6 months. The RLM guys have already done a couple of things with Last Jedi. both of which treated it with a profound lack of seriousness.

Far from hitting it out of the park, I predict Rian Johnson won't make any public appearances at cons, unless Disney can tightly control the audience composition, for fear of being lustily booed. Heck, I think he might need a security detail.

Meh. Cenk doesn't seem one of the worst ones to me. He's a hypocrite, yes, but which SJW isn't? The SocJus standards are so insanely tough and impossibly challenging that they're very likely all grade-A hypocrites, and the stuff in the article is very weak sauce and guilt by association.

In the article about Cenk it's mentioned that he "objectified" a female police officer by saying that he had been "a bad boy". The horror, the horror :bjarte:

SJW standards of behavior are completely insane. Everyone "objectifies" others all the time, women do it to men too, LGBT people do it too, it's called flirting and being horny, not even Victorians were such prudes. I really don't want to encourage those insane standards, not even to score a point against someone who preaches them.

Cenk might be hard to like but Harvey Weinstein he ain't.
