SJW's Everywhere! Even in Alternate History!

You never know where you're going to find delicate SJW snowflakes. I'm still surprised when they pop up in unexpected places, though by now I shouldn't be. Half the team that does this blog has an oddball interest in alternate history science fiction, the sort of thing Harry Turtledove writes, and a classical example of which is The Man in the High Castle [link].  This has led him to have another blog, Ifnicity [link], all about alternate history.

There's an alternate history discussion forum on the net at "Alternate History Dot Com" [link]. And he finally got around to registering there to participate in some of the discussions. After registering, one of the first threads he came across was the question, "Are there any right wingers anywhere!?." (meaning on the forum) Some people had answered already, saying they were conservatives, talking about right-wingers as a different classification than conservatives, stuff like that, mostly very mild. So he answered the question this way:

Neither "right-winger" nor "conservative" has widely agreed-upon definitions. Both terms should be defined whenever they're used, especially in forums like this, that include people of many different places and with very different experiences. Me, you can call Alt-Right (I was Alt-Right before Hillary popularized the phrase) or "libertarian nationalist" (google it) in that I believe in libertarian principles about the way the Founding Fathers did, and that I think the nation-state is the best guardian of these principles and its inhabitants. Another way to look at it is that I'm the sort of Goldwater "conservative" that was the default conservative before the Trotskyites left the Democratic party, joined the Republican party, and began calling themselves "neoconservatives."

And guess what happened next? One of the SJW's on the forum wrote:

Oh look it's a brand new member starting off by announcing he's a racist.

Banned.


And I naturally expected this just to be the reaction of one of the more childish members, but no, I received an email right away, reading:

[Y]ou have been permanently banned in response to your message Are there any right wingers anywhere!?.

Whoa! Amazing that they, or anybody else, can find "racism" in that paragraph I wrote. Maybe you can enlighten me. Is it the Alt-Right part? Reference to "libertarian nationalist" or maybe even the "Founding Fathers"? The identification as a "Goldwater conservative"? Or the Trotsky part? Maybe it's just the black-and-white thinking Turtledove refers to in the quibcag. If you're not a politically-correct SJW "I'm with her" Hillary worshipper, you must be an evil racist-sexist-homophobe-Islamophobe Nazi. No grays there.

Well, if any of you are interested in alternate history, and join that forum, for God's sake don't mention to them that you ever voted for or supported anybody but the most orthodox of leftist Democrats. Better yet, go to Ifnicity [link] and do your alternate-history discussing there. http://www.alternatehistory.com is a cybernetic "safe place," I suppose.

Quibcag: Since this is about thinking, I used Yuki Nagato of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu)  to illustrate it, because she looks very brainy and very cute at the same time.

  2. Shut up, Luka.

    Baloo - alternate history borders very closely on science fiction - which is INFESTED with SJW's. There are more pan-gendered freak shows in that crowd than you can shake a stick at. Fact is our whole entertainment/arts/publishing industries have fallen to them. I am not surprised at all that you got banned on your first post.

    When it comes to that stuff you should follow the antics of guys like Vox Day, Larry Correia and other authors that make a point of taunting and provoking SJW's.

    They actually did you a favour by giving you the punt.

  4. Re the "quibcag":

    I actually do think in terms of black/white, right wrong. It's all those other folks shades of "morality" (Non or otherwise.) that get me to wondering.

    Mr. Luka:

    "How you went right into off topic section and posted on thread that has nothing to do with actual topic of the board."

    I see your point but it was in the OFF TOPIC section after all.

    Maybe he wanted to "feel out" the atmosphere. Mr. Filthie is right about Social Justice Weasels being all over the place in regard to sci-fi/alternate history fandom. Best to "find out now" than down the road.

  6. This is a prime example of what the Left really means when they say you need to have talks with them. Basically they set up a tolerance and divershitty panel where they lecture you about the wonders of their delusions and why you cannot turn the clock back to reality. Its the current year now see, and that nasty reality with truth and facts are no longer welcome here in Fantasyland you haters.
    Sure the World doesn't work, but its like never worked. At least not for them anyway. The Future belongs to those that control the past or something. Forward! All those Stone Age savages and Rapist Invading Hordes can't feed themselves. Can't we all get along?

    NO. HELL, NO!

  8. Ah, finally Luka shows his true colors. He thinks anybody to the right of Hillary is a neoNazi. Anyhow, Luka, you've made your point, and since I know my own motivations, it's not a very convincing point. You seem to think it was perfectly reasonable to ban me for answering a question. You think all Trump voters should be kicked off the Internet, I bet.

    Luka, you wouldn't know a neoNazi if one kicked your ass. And someday, no doubt, one will :)

    Well said, Jay! — "feeling out" is a good description of what I was doing. Do you think I should delete Luka's remarks? After all, if somebody doesn't want to engage with a communist faggot SJW pervert scumbag and doesn't want them on the board they moderate that's understandable.

  11. Luka thinks conservatives are neo-Nazis. Ain't he cute? He even has a false memory that the OP self-identified as one. Go back to your safe space with the puppies and play-dough, Luka. I don't think you're a troll, Luka, trolls are tough, according to Tolkien and Pratchett. You're more like sone wussy thing from the Harry Potter stories, that yammers and yammers till the kids chase it away.

  13. I was permabanned from there for objecting to abortion and explaining why in as a civil and moderate way I could muster.
    Nobody argued my point, I was simply banned.
    No problem in the end. I soon discovered Jared Diamond regulary posts there and I want to mantain as much degrees of separation from that nominal "intellectual" as possible.
