So the interview is some guy being butthurt over the fact that Pakman isn't drinking the "Listen & Believe" kool-aid enough.

Well, that was dissapointing. Aside from the strange statement "Sure ethics in game journalism is a great issue, but do not go after the journalists or the indies, go after the developers!" (lulz), it was a similar snoozefest like with Vox Day.

So he blamed getting sacked on his opinions? Seems kind of a stretch.

So "don't blame the journalists for being corrupt, blame the people allegedly corrupting them"?

 

Thank you for saving me 30 minutes, I will now post a Kurdish cutie.

SJWs blocking SWJs. For great justice!

 

One block according to their abilities, another block according to their needs.

See, this is why not every social activist is a SJW.

Is that the Miles Cheong? It's like they switched him for someone else.

 

I like how he downplays his former Hitler worship as "I Once Had Opinions About A Thing".

 

See, this is why not every social activist is a SJW.

I'd argue that almost no social activists are SJWs, as that requires getting off your ass and doing something rather than complaining about the white supremacist patriarcy oppressing all of the genderfluid transblack crabkin.

Did he not social justice hard enough or did he social justice too hard or have they moved on to a different social justice flavor of the month and he didn't change his social justicing fast enough?  I can't tell any more.

IGDA Kate Edwards: "...there's no interest in dialogue. At all. It's not about that for GamerGate. It's about forcing opinion on other people."

 

You block everyone with different opinion and then blame them for not having a dialogue. Welp, I guess that's IGDA boss for you.

 

lol.

Holy ****! Have things really gone that bad? Safe rooms and puppies to protect people from the speech of a middle-aged woman? :o

I had to watch the video twice to make sure I actually heard it right. How do these people survive in life? My god....

Yup. And, it's not just white woman who say that. Chris Rock complained about it. It really is some scary stuff. Yet, these are usually the same people who threaten women in game developed). SJWs are really nazis - it is all about power, control, slavery, and silencing different opinions.

Chris Rock on college(and a lot of other stuff).

 

 

Interviewer: When did you start to notice this?

 

Chris Rock: About eight years ago. Probably a couple of tours ago. It was just like, This is not as much fun as it used to be. I remember talking to George Carlin before he died and him saying the exact same thing.

Carlin tried to warn us.

You agree with Fox News because suddenly they are saying something that aligns with your perspective, my advice is don't make a habit of it. You will be disappointed  :geek:

I agree with what the News anchor is saying "You have to listen to opposing views and deal with it". But I find it Hilarious that that particular sentiment is coming from Fox News.
