And about an hour after I sent the video of the whistleblower to Breitbart, they have an article up about it.  Hope that helps get the word out a little bit more.

Honestly, I don't consider Breitbart and the like so much different from woke outlets. Like Stanley Kubrick said of the political parties in "A Clockwork Orange", superficially they are opposite, factually they are the same thing.

"A man who engaged in non-violent protest at the Capitol was given eight months prison, while hundreds of BLM cases have been dropped." Just write "A man who engaged in non-violent protest during a BLM event was given eight months prison, while hundreds of Capitol protest cases have been dropped." and you will have a woke screamsheet. But that's the "new America" for us who are watching from the sidelines.


Except this is literally a lie. Capitol protest cases have NOT BEEN TRIED. People have been held, without even having charges against them, as GUANTANAMO-STYLE POLITICAL PRISONERS, for seven months now.

IMHO, people who filmed themselves and took selfies while, you know, INVADING YOUR CAPITOL - not to mention those who rabidly followed a "shaman guy" cosplaying as Sven from Frozen - should be psychiatrically interned for their own good. Truth is: I feel only sadness for these feeble minded people who provided fertile support for a specific breed of hare-brained politicians - and that will take the fall for them.

Of course fanaticism from Harris (who is not currently enjoying a smooth sailing, BTW) compounds the problem. As does the side of the Aisle that is obstructing any and every attempt to launch a serious investigation in the events of Jan, 6th. (One wonders why... ::))

Re: BLM, "If Athens cries, Sparta doesn't laugh". You can find articles "proving" anything. This one from Forbes https://www.forbes.com/sites/roberthart/2021/01/07/figures-show-stark-difference-between-arrests-at-dc-black-lives-matter-protest-and-arrests-at-capitol-hill/?sh=6624238b5706 makes the case that the "double policing standard" is being applied against BLM, not the Capitol protesters. I'm pretty sure that out there there is something by Fox News argumenting the opposite.

I'm Italian. Politically, I don't have a dog in this race. But I have a dog in the pop culture race as a comic book writer, movie geek and in  my RPG hobby. The damage done by wokeism is clear, present and scary. "Cancel culture" can destroy the life of an innocent in a single day with a bunch of lies on Twitter (check what happened to Chris Avellone). "Presumption of innocence until proven guilty", an international human right, doesn't exists anymore in the current climate of hysteria. " In Italy it is, for now, limited to the Twitter cesspool, but it will spread with the adaptation of movies, comics, RPGs and tabletop games. However, as I pointed out over and over, there are three other factors to consider:

1) Woke = fiasco. Star Wars, Ghostbusters 2016, Terminator: Woke Fate, Charlie's Angels, Black Widow, with the list stretching into the cold infinite. "Get Woke, Go Broke" is a motto savagely attacked by wokes - mostly because it is consistently true.

2) The pushback. Wokeism is attacked by Christians, atheists and the left itself - all of which are seeing the devolution of commonly shared human values into a fundamentalist, black and white sort of "religion". You can find a lot of sane arguments against Wokeism out there. These arguments, being sane, have no value. The rest is a mirror of Wokeism. For any Twitter wokestorm you will find Breitbart News. For any Forbes you will find Fox News.

3) Maybe the most accurate description of today's real World. It comes from Alan Moore's "Providence". While in the comic book it is both a metaphor for R'lyeh and a premonition of things to come, I think that, like many of the things Moore writes, it has an universal value:

"There is a concealed country [...] hidden below the society we show the World.
Uncomfortable truth, it lurks beyond our pretences."

This "concealed country" is the one who gives 99% positive reviews to David Chappelle's "Stick and Stones" on Rotten Tomatoes, the truth behind the indignation that "the society shows the World" in the scathing critics' reviews.

It is the country that, at the news of a black Snow White reacts with this kind of "pretence":



...But then it will not flock to see the movie, thus revealing the "Uncomfortable truth that lurks beyond. It already happened. Get Woke? Go Broke. It is not by chance that the Tolkien Society didn't stream this year's seminars, nor made them available on YouTube. You can be sure that the number of people who is awakening for real to the realities of the World is growing every day.

There had been victims and there will be victims. What is happening to Chris Avellone is both saddening and scary. He can still pull through, thought. If not, maybe the next one will. There are already signs that big entities severely burned by wokeism are pedaling back fast. One day all of this will be history.
For every idiot who denounces Ayn Rand as "intellectualism" there is an excellent DM who creates a "Bioshock" adventure.

The key battle is happening now and is being waged EVERYWHERE at the same time. The hordes of fucking barbarians that are the SJWs have come from inside the Polis itself and are now going house-to-house trying to burn it ALL to the fucking ground and leave nothing but salted earth in its wake. It's a battle in a defining war for the future of civilization itself, and if the SJWs win we will all be plunged back into a new dark age of savagery.

Every single measure to stop this needs to be on the table, because the death tolls if they win will give the Black Death a run for its money.
It won't be won by waging a bloody thread by thread war on the RPGSite.

It will only be won by waging a post by post war against SJW entryism LITERALLY EVERYWHERE.

This is a civil war, and I get that it feels inconvenient for some of you that my fighting back against people who want to destroy the hobby you love, and LITERALLY EVERYTHING ELSE you love (your country, your economic freedom, your job, your education, your art, your religion and your children), is getting in the way of you feeling relaxed while painting your elf miniatures, but for those of us who care about the future of human civilization it's a little more important to us to be trying to stop your fat asses from ending up in the death camp or the killing fields, and to stop your children from being ideologically and/or literally taken by these psychopaths and brainwashed into being terrorists for the destruction of the human species.

And if you're really tired by all this and just want it to stop, then I'm not the one you need to be dealing with. If YOU stood up to these Communist Totalitarian psychopaths like I do, they'd be finished in a day. On the other hand, if you got me to stop, you would end up in a gulag, dumbass.

Name ONE BLM rioters who has had the same happen? Instead, Leftist DAs, mayors and governors all over the country  have dropped charges and Kamal Harris personally paid the bail of BLM rioters who engaged in burning down entire city blocks, looting businesses and stabbing people.

There is a clear collapse of equal treatment in Rule of Law in America. Once that happens, it's almost impossible that things will get fixed without conflict.

The claim the capital rioters are being held without being charged is all false (like patently absurdly lyingly false, they're charged and most made bail and are out "on personal recognizance") but more importantly I am really trying to see how this is about RPGs? Seriously if someone else had posted this political rant they'd be under threat of ban right now. NOTHING of what you just wrote has anything to do with this RPG topic except int he most extreme "everything is political so nothing is political" sort of way. WTF Pundit? BLM rioters, Capital rioters, the rule of law in America, THIS is what you think the CRT lecture to the Hasbro contractor is about? Come on man. It's hard enough to figure out what is and is not OK to post in this part of the forum without you blurring the lines even more like that.

IMHO, people who filmed themselves and took selfies while, you know, INVADING YOUR CAPITOL - not to mention those who rabidly followed a "shaman guy" cosplaying as Sven from Frozen - should be psychiatrically interned for their own good. Truth is: I feel only sadness for these feeble minded people who provided fertile support for a specific breed of hare-brained politicians - and that will take the fall for them.
I want you to stop and think about what you just said, specifically the part I bolded.

Because that's also a Soviet Union gig. Committing inconvenient people to mental hospitals for wrongthink.

Knowingly committing a very serious criminal federal crime (because someone else invited you to do it, to boot) and joyously taking selfies while you do it is rightthink? Just askin'.

Cool.

Now do those loons who crashed Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings. And the loony bint who demanded the Dems 'end the filibuster'.

'Cause if you don't, this isn't really about law. It's about who's in power.

Just sayin'.

   Well, in his defense, the media did not RANT all day and all night about that, because that was... 1st amendment bro.  However, show up for the *wrong* side and it is an insurrection.  The real insurrections are coming, and I think the first ways we will see it will be right leaning people wont let their kids join the military, removal from public schools,  and there is going to be some tax "hesitancy" coming.

The wokeness and radical politics are practically inescapable these days when it comes to this hobby

years go I used to go to Garycon and have fun there playing old school D&D, hanging out with the old-timers from the hobby. Everything was chill, and like a private party

since that convention has gotten popular, and WOTC was invited in, it has turned into a meeting of the fucking RAF

next year's guests include:

Tom Morrello: Rage Against the Machine guitarist, ANTIFA member, committed Communist. The guy who consistently praised Castro, called for violent riots last year, denounces all cops as Klan members, demanded that statues to Jefferson and Washington in DC get ripped down, and calls the American flag a symbol of racism and genocide

BDave Walters: some gamer / activist dude who pushes CRT on his youtube channel, and basically bashes white people non-stop

Aliza Pearl: another BLM figure

Mike Mearls: don't need to comment on this guy

Jennel Jacquays: transgender activist and complete psycho

and like 6-7 more guests from the furthest reaches of the radical left

and the colors of the t-shirts next year are the colors of the transgender flag (coral, baby blue and white)

---

Other conventions aren't much better. So it isn't simply liberal or even a little lefty --it is full-on Anti-American activist socialism all over the place.

Thanks for playing tho.

But given the quality of your "argum,ents" you might want to limit yourself to playing less intelectually demanding games, like you're it.

I am hoping, with everything I've got, that DragonCon hasn't fallen down the same hole. Yeah, they've got a Duhversity track, but in 2019 it seemed to be just a containment area -- I didn't see a whole lot of wokeness otherwise (or at all).

[I still remember someone telling me that if WotC started loosing money the bean counters at Hasbro would do something... No we know Hasbro has also been converted so D&D is lost, dead, long live the OSR!
My only argument against this position is that if you limit yourself to the OSR, you're dead in the water. The masses have spoken and the OSR is a tiny minority in terms of play preference, but the majority isn't the Woke mobs either.

The Woke are a minority, which means they need to keep their enemies divided into factions smaller than they are so they can attack those smaller groups one a time.

We need to embrace EVERY type of play that doesn't cave to Marxist wankery; Old School, New School, Home School, Organized Play School. If its opposed to the Woke its part of the team.

The OSR is a great incubation chamber of ideas.

But ultimately if a future woke D&D is to be brought low, a viable alternative needs to come forth.

At some point we are going to have to pick a horse to back.
