Also anybody using that Milo married a black man as a defense should be autobanned. That's literally GG's current tactics. Spam all Milo criticism with comment after comment about who he married. Use that as a shield.
I'm actually starting to wonder if this nameless husband is even real, lol. But yeah, even if he is, it's like saying men can't be misogynist because they married women. Like... wut

Heck even I find it easier to see the gamergate connection with youtubers like The Act Man. It's prevelant with his jokes, his SJW vs videogames video and his non challant dismisal on twitter of pewdiepie saying the n word.

The one picture I saw was a black guy from the back, so no face. Wouldn't be surprised if he just convinced someone to pose as his husband or to marry him just for the American visa so he can stay in america to spread his bullshit longer. Highly doubting he's real too.

I still can't believe how many people got willingly "duped" to a fucking organized terror campaign. How many people got recruited to obvious bigotry and neo-nazis in their midst. Because Leigh Alexander wrote some words on the internet, it was okay to collaborate with white supremacists. Because Anita Sarkeesian has an opinion about video games, it was okay to stand shoulder to shoulder with neo-nazis.

And then you have people who are still unscathed in video games culture who supported all these nazis - Erik Kain from Forbes, Total Biscuit, Boogie2988, and so on. While game companies stood silent and watched.

Fuck everyone who supported Gamergate or who now try to wash their hands from the pain they've caused.

Just looked for his husband, found Milo's instagram and this is the comment with the most recent image:



The Left is shaken that some of their own have been emailing me privately. Well, I have a message for them. You live near MILO fans. You work alongside MILO fans. We are everywhere. You'll never know who we are. But we are watching you. We hear your conspiracy theories; we see your hypocrisy. And when the time is right we will strike. MILO can't be beaten because MILO is an idea. A symbol of rebellion against an arrogant, clueless, self-regarding elite. Your name-calling and character assassinations only make us stronger. You have 30 years of MILO to look forward to. Strap yourselves in, darlings.
I genuinely don't know how much is done for the persona, and how much is actual delusion.

Pretty good tweet thread about why so many gamers and "moderates" flocked to Gamergate and Milo:



They simply didn't like the presence and opinions of cis-women, transfolk, and people of color and this dislike was strong enough for them to ally with a hate movement.

It's not that unbelievable when you realize gamers were waiting for something like this to happen. GG was basically the culmination of an
increasingly frustrated boys club that didn't like the emergence of previously unsung voices demanding a seat at the table.

I just didn’t and still can’t believe that people like this are so deluded and hateful that they are willing to join literal neo-nazis

if there was a black guy who married milo of all people...well, not to "question someone's blackness", but he aint doing our race any favors
I mean, considering Milo is a self-hating asshole who wants the groups he belongs to suppressed, would it be a surprise if his husband hates black people and homosexuals too? Marrying Milo sounds like a punishment a self-hating person would inflict on themselves anyway.

Hell, haven't studies shown that homophobic men get off more on gay porn than men that aren't homophobic? Their dirty talk is probably straight up hate speech mixed with bad World War II history.

I just got an idea for a line of Nazi-themed gay porn videos.

The reason milo fancies black guys is racist. He spoke about it years ago. He fancies black guys because being screwed by a black guy is the mos transgressive, shocking thing he can do. He literally gets off on the fact that a white guy shouldn’t be sleeping with a black guy because of the race aspect.

History has taught us that extreme leanings on both side of the political spectrum can be as bad as each other.
Were we talking about the history of past decades or are we talking about current events? Look at the thread title. The right being represented here is Milo, Bannon, Gamergate, and Neo-Nazism. The left is the left that faces that. Are those equally dangerous?

Even look at the argument in the post I was replying to. The harm that they were telling us liberals cause is... they might disagree with you in a thread about sexuality in The Witcher. Oh no.

*Shrug*You're talking about a country that elected a dangerously insane, self-obsessed, sexist, racist moron who brags about sexual assaults and insights violence as president.

It's staggering and disgusting, but sadly unsurprising :(

Looking back over page two it's really funny how all the burner accounts start off with "I don't really know anything about ____, but here's a long-winded refutation of everyone else's posts and a defense of ____."

It's like the foundation of bad faith arguments to pretend that Google doesn't exist. Do these people just wander into discussion forums on physics and economics just to give uneducated hot takes?
Of course not.

If you have to feign ignorance of literally everything someone has said or done in public in the past 5 years to make them look not so bad, I dunno, pick a new internet personality to Stan?

Perhaps I wasn't clear enough - I wasn't referring to recent events.

Just an observation. I'm not aware of the Witcher thread.

It was taking a random segment of a post out of its context, and out of the context of the thread it's in, so that you could say "the left can be bad too".
A rather big assumption there. No underlying meaning in my post - not a subertive rallying cry for right wing American potitics, GG, or Milo.

Have to say not particuarly impressed with the insinuation you are making.

That's not an assumption, I'm saying what you did. That's not an insinuation. The underlying context is in the post you quoted and the thread you are posting in. If there's "no underlying context" in your post, it's because you took it out when you removed that sentence from a larger post and ignored what it was replying to.

If you're trying to read my post as an accusation that you're a Nazi, that's not my intention. My accusation is that you are in a thread about recent events, replied to a post about recent events, and then decided that you were going to talk about history instead.

The same shit happens in every GG related thread, they still haven't noticed that this script doesn't work here.

Fuck me. It was a simple point I made. Don't appreciate being jumped on like this.

I apprecate your edit. I was getting the feeling you were saying I was some form of nazi supporter. Not my intention. Far from it.

Im out of this thread before I accidently do more damage.
 
muh slippery slope

also don't believe that people in those companies aren't completely innocent or don't hold those beliefs.
Key point you brought up for people reading this: pay attention to the grilling Congress and the Special Prosecutor's office is giving Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. Even if they're not taking money from these fucks' paymasters, the laissez faire wild west internet is being exploited for these sustained Culture Wars/active measures.

After reading that article, I'm very curious as to who is actually funding these outted white supremacist patreons. They always get a nice chunk of cash... and now we know where Milo's post-brietbart funding comes from.
Hence the focus on Mercer. I highly doubt Breitbart makes money, especially after their attention plummeted after January.

They do a lot of mental contortions to convince themselves they are not in alliance with neo-nazis.
Charlottesville had a bunch of them scrambling; "oh, it's 'New Right'" cuz these Vanilla ISIS were seen marching with Klansmen and skinheads who beat and killed innocents. Similar was mentioned in the article; it's great to troll so as to get control of the narrative, but it can backfire on them. But how to sustain the light on that connection though...

They are actually taking money because Russia paid Facebook off for ad space to sway the 2016 election (In rubles even) and Russia has been taking part in astro-turfing Nazis on the Internet since around the advent of Gamergate too.

Fuck Erik Kain. A shitty writer who only reached popularity by jerking off Souls fans' egos with his shallow commentary. And when given the opportunity to be better, he chose to be one of the worst people in games journalism.

After Dan Lyons got caught exchanging emails making shitty jokes about Zoe Quinn with Milo, he went into crazy damage control mode. Denied any of it was real, said it was a witch hunt, then finally admitted it was true and said he emailed Zoe an apology.

Zoe responds saying she never received an apology, and Dan Lyon responds by blocking her on Twitter and goes silent for hours. Suddenly he pops back up with some excuse that he had mailed the apology to the "contact us" contact link on her book website. Then he says he is sending it to the same email again because "the first one probably didn't get through (?)"

Zoe finally got the apology the second time he sent it (actually the first time, pretty obvious he was lying about the initial one).

And here it is:



It seriously reads almost exactly like your average junior burner account in a GG thread.

"I didn't have any idea of the history between Milo and you or even what Gamergate is, I just thought it would be a laugh to yuck it up with him about how ugly you are and how you're probably a tranny"

Good lord it absolutely does. Taken straight from the GG handbook of "I don't know about this guy BUT"

It's all because these Nazi/Nazi sympathizer stooges can't even think for themselves so they just parrot the exact same buzzwords and memes pumped into them from their Breitbart/Russian masters. They are straight up sheep. I also think deep down that they know this and its one of the main reasons they are so super defensive and flip their shit over the most innocuous things. They know they're pathetic wastes of flesh but they are terrified of confronting that fact and trying to improve.

for an apology to zoe quinn 90% of that text is about him
Not to mention that it doesn't even talk about the other women he apparently contacted Milo about.

"Sorry, I didn't know about GamerGate or you. And I'm not friends with him. He's just the dude I check in with to know when to be extremely transphobic or not."

It's kind of shocking to see how GamerGate was in many ways, ground zero for this. As someone who strongly opposed the gators at the time, it's depressing too, to see that our efforts failed, and that we weren't able to show the average person what this group really was.

To see so many sympathetic to it... and to see it built on to help hand the white house to white supremacists...

Yeah. I feel more than a little inadequate today.

I'm not going to throw the towel in though.

I like how it's mostly about him with a "Oh yeah, I'm sorry" at the end
