Is there some sort of contest out there to see who can sing the praises of GamerGate in the most floridly self-important, over-the-top and un-self-aware manner possible?
If so, we seem to have a new contender: the racist, woman-hating fantasy author and actual adult human being who goes by the name Vox Day, who may have even out-melodramatized 8chan’s pretentious pontificators in a post on his Vox Popoli blog today.
At this point, #GamerGate is about more than games now. It is a Schwerpunkt in the ongoing cultural war for the West. And the gamers of #GamerGate are the only defenders of freedom and Western civilization who are counterattacking and causing enemy casualties. That is why it is more than important, it is vital to see non-gamers joining the cause rather than sneering from the sidelines.
Because if the pinkshirts haven’t come after you and yours yet, they assuredly will so long as you have not submitted to them.
I know that Vox writes terrible fantasy novels for a living. Does he think he lives in one as well?
