FingerRod:
Hmmm…wonder why GAMA deleted their twitter account only a couple hours later? My bet is it is totally unrelated.

Well, for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of dealing with Vox Day he's a honest go God member of the Alt-Right, and (unless he has denounced them?) so was Jon del Arroz. Arguing with the latter about why I didn't want anything to do with them I told him I was too white for the SJWs and not white enough for the Alt-Right. Jon told me they did consider me to be white.

Pay close attention, he didn't deny his association with them, he told me the Alt-Right considered me to be white.

Or JDA just doesn't play the "If you don't denounce whoever I tell you to denounce then you support them 100%" bullshit. JDA has said dozens of times that while he and Vox are business partners and personal friends, they don't share the same political positions. I mean, that used the be the norm but now it is verboten.

Also, Worldcon called JDA a "racist" and JDA sued them for defamation. Worldcon ended up issuing an apology and paying him damages.

Of course, the SJWs have learned their lesson and now use totally subjective terms like "bullying" and "harassing" to ban people.

What part of JdA was trying to recruit me for the Alt-Right you didn't understand?

If he no longer shares those beliefs fine with me, redemption is a thing.

No, it wasn't because Vox was his publisher, but you already knew all of that and are just being disingenuos.

I am not denying people got angry about the frog but am saying that gencon may have other issues with Jeff. One issue that’s been pointed out was him taking pictures of himself in The GenCon space setting up without a mask, which is against their policy.

Again I’m not entirely sure and I’m not here to say anyone is wrong as much as point out that there is a bit more to the story than just the frog.

BGG was bitching about another game for the same reason at least a month ago. How Wacist! the frog is. Oh Noes!

Why would anyone mistake a Pepe the frog cartoon as conservative anti-woke symbol? Such a HUGE mystery. Man, these people are truly over-reacting... [/sarcasm]

One that's not a pepe cartoon
Two the OK symbol was a 4chan troll and you all fell for it.
Three by your logic anything that has been used/liked by ethnonationalists should never be used by anyone else even in the most remote likeness.

Hitler liked dogs and was a vegetarian. Now go pester dog owners and vegetarians for their nazi association...

You have to remember that Trench here proports to be a "good SJW" but at every turn shows himself to be anything but and is usually at the forefront of defending whatever the fuck hallucinations his fellow cult member have proclaimed today.

Off topic but it is also one of the basic sign language gestures. For W.
