Origins Game Fair Caves to SJZ Brownshirts
Origins Game Fair Caves to SJZ Brownshirts
May 15, 2018
Yesterday NYT bestselling author Larry Correia was excited to announce that he had been invited to Origins Game Fair as a Guest of Honor, along with game designers Ken St. Andre, Eric Lang, Tony Steele, and Mike Elliott. Larry is not just a talented author, but someone who loves and interacts with his fans, paints miniatures, and is a gamer nerd, who seemed to be thrilled to have gotten an invitation.
And then the social justice zealot smears started.
The usual purple-haired, hairy armpitted, androgynous, “mayonnaise is a gender,” social justice landwhales swung into action, whining about how upset they were that Larry was invited as Guest of Honor. They maligned him as a racist (he’s actually a person of color), misogynist (despite the fact that Larry spent years teaching self defense to women), they claimed he was a terrible, awful person who made them feel unsafe (even though Larry has attended numerous conventions, and by every account was charming, bright, funny, friendly, and polite), and they demanded that Origins rescind the invitation, because SAD PUPPIES!
Not more than a half an hour later, Origins Executive Director John Ward posted the following message.
I want to discuss our invitation to Larry Correia a guest at Origins. By all counts he is a very talented author.
With a gigantic, active, and dedicated fan base.
Unfortunately, when he was recommended I was unaware of some personal views that are specifically unaligned with the philosophy of our show and the organization.
Larry has a very popular blog, and it’s not like he keeps quiet about his views, but apparently, it’s beneath Ward to do any research before inviting Guests of Honor.
Larry is a libertarian. He believes in achievement. He believes in personal responsibility. He helps new and upcoming authors. He supports charities. He’s a family man with a loving wife and children. He loves to have fun. He believes that one must work and earn honors and achievements, instead of using one’s plumbing, gender identity, purple hair, or oozing sores to gain an advantage.
Larry’s response was subdued. I suppose he’s used to the “I am a woke femynyst” crowd beating on his straw persona like a piñata.
For the record, I’m not any of the things they accuse me of. Despite writing a whole bunch of books, and a ton of political articles, and all of my many personal interactions with fans (I’ve done up to 15 cons and events in one year), none of these people can ever find any actual examples of me being sexist, racist, or homophobic (and the Guardian looked hard and still came up with nothing).
That’s because in reality, I’m a libertarian who does not give a shit who you are, or what you do, and it is none of my business, as long as you stay off my lawn. 🙂
The saddest person in all of this is my son, who was my plus one. He was looking forward to playing a bunch of games, and then we were going to go to the zoo on Sunday. (they have manatees there!).
If those personal views are inconsistent with the organization, maybe it’s not an organization anyone would want to be a part of – and certainly not a family one, as John Ward claims below.
I want to thank those of you that brought this error to our attention.
Translation: I will bow to the unhinged desires of any whining, bitching, complaining miscreant.
Origins is an inclusive and family friendly event. We focus on fun and gaming, not discourse and controversy.
Inclusive, except when someone whose views don’t toe the SJZ ideological line; family friendly except to families of those who don’t genuflect at the altar of cultural Marxism, in which case, fuck their families; fun and gaming, not discourse and controversy, unless a guest’s “personal views that are specifically unaligned with the philosophy of our show and the organization.”
Which one is it, John Ward? Is the event non-political and family friendly, or will you exclude people based on their personal views? You can’t have it both ways.
I felt it necessary to recend his invitation to participate in the show. I apologize again to those of you that were looking forward to seeing him at Origins.
It’s “rescind,” you barely literate, pusillanimous, shit-gnawing fuckwit. And it’s not that you felt it necessary; you were just afraid of confrontation, and after a few of the social justice proglodytes (one assblasted, perpetually offended femturd, in particular, who was merely nursing a grudge) raised a stench, you thought it would be better for your stress levels if you just uninvited an interesting, generous, fun participant from your event, lest the kvetching social justice gargoyles, crawl up your puckered anus.
This isn’t the first time that the froth flecked, lying social justice taint ticklers have tried to destroy someone’s reputation, life, and livelihood with screeching online lies. Just a few weeks ago, their lies got renowned science fiction author John Ringo uninvited from ConCarolinas. – same MO, different event, same outcome.
This time, the woman (and I use that term loosely) who started the complaining was simply trying to get revenge, because Larry fisked an article by her boyfriend, and she didn’t like the outcome, claiming it was a personal attack, rather than a fisking – with facts – of her boyfriend’s published piece.
Within hours, Larry’s name was also removed from an anthology post Origins had promoted on their Facebook site. His name is still on the cover (for now), but apparently Larry is so “offensive” to Origins’ fan base (read one shrieking, screeching shrew whose boyfriend is apparently such an omega male Pajama Boy, that years later she has to destroy a bestselling author who caused his tender labia to chafe by challenging her fucktoy’s public screeds), that he cannot even be mentioned in a Facebook post promoting an anthology that is sure to make these people lots of profits, especially with Larry’s name on the cover.
At the time of this writing, Origins has pulled their post admitting that John Ward has rescinded the invitation to Larry as Guest of Honor, because of his personal views, probably because of the outcry resulting from their actions. I have sent an email to the GAMA board, expressing my dismay at John Ward’s treatment of Mr. Correia, but have gotten no response. They are apparently hoping we will forget and move on. The Internet, however, doesn’t forget. The Origins Yelp reviews reflect John Ward’s poor judgment.
Once again I say, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
You cannot make peace with these fascist brownshirted scum. You cannot cooperate and exist on the same earth with them, because they will always agitate for your destruction. They will always show up with pitchfork-wielding outrage mobs to malign, slander, and smear those whom they perceive to be their enemies.
Victory Girl Amanda Green wrote of this fiasco earlier today, and she’s had enough too.
So let’s make sure not only John Ward and the con know what we think but also the con backers and vendors. The only real way to make sure these folks understand just how large the pile of steaming dog shit is they just stepped in is to hit them in their wallets. If you bought a membership because Larry was going to be a GoH and no longer desire to attend, demand your money back. When they refuse — and I have a feeling they will — note that you bought based on false advertising and that you will file a complaint with the city/state because of that if you don’t get your money back. Use the screen grabs that have been immortalized on the internet as support.
Contact the powers that be for the con. You can find a list of them here.
Contact their sponsors and let them know you will be voting with your dollars where they are concerned as well if they continue to sponsor the con.
Contact the GAMA board to let them know what you think about the way John Ward treated a best selling author and well-known gaming fan.
You cannot coexist with them. You cannot negotiate with them. You cannot play by their rules. They will not let anyone live in peace who holds views that deviate in any way from their cultural Marxist dogma. They are fascists, who won’t allow WrongThink to exist, because it taints the perfect little world they’re trying to create – a world where respect isn’t earned by hard work and achievement, but rather by competing for biggest victim status.
Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame, John Ward. Your cowardice, unwillingness to research and engage with other human beings like a decent person, and inability to stand up to loud, obnoxious proglodyte malcontents has caused a maelstrom of criticism for your employer, and your deletion of the original post and your subsequent comments will not change this.
