Rolling Stone joined in now with an interview on GamerGate by Anita Sarkeesian. Guess whose side they're on (well, it should be obvious)?:

I hope social science departments are observing this carefully.

It's turning into a perfect study into whether or not defining reality through social means works. It's going to have massive implications for marketing.

Also, it's interesting to see how organic SEO and Social Media are the picket lines of the early 21st Century. These sort of things are ideological battles in exactly the same way the student uprisings were in the 20th Century. It's pretty cool to watch.

I'm particularly liking the consumers going straight to the advertisers and writing letters asking them to withdraw. It's beautiful.

I'm starting to see more gamergate articles pop up on techcrunch and other technology focused reporting sites too. Makes sense since the fight has been all online using social media.

http://techcrunch.com/2014/10/18/gamergate-tactics/
Comments sections are ripping up the sjws.

An earlier article that was fairly reasonable in presenting both sides.

RE: #GamerGate thread (formerly "Zoe Quinn: Feminism, Game Journalims, and Corrup...
I'm far from being a Video Game player and even less a specialist, but it seems that even though the majority of video game player would hate the sight of PUA (I assume since one of my co workers is one of them) they are nonetheless very smart and can smell bullshit when their emotions are not covered by any type of lust for a woman.

In a battle of PUA vs Feminist the Gamers would probably choose the Feminist, and then to have them constantly calling you a Misogynist trying to keep women out of games.

Women have destroyed so many of their former allies in the video game world that now they called their friend in the propaganda media to win the general population that aren't Gamers or PUA.

Even my co worker who has a hatred for me since he kind of smells the PUA on me a little had a deep hatred for our friend Anita when I explained to him all the fuss about her. When I explained to him the feminist side of the argument he called bullshit on it right away!

what's with people and the 'mass favorite button pressing of tweets by people who you likely disagreed with'? I got lit up on notifications of that lately on twitter

This smug little prick thinks any of this shit is going to faze Mike?

Interesting that he links to a dumblr and describes himself as an "internet comedian" who "finds dumb tweets."

What a life you lead there, buddy.

Oh and he writes for Salon too, go figure.

Said smug prick now actually calls Mike a loser. This is comedy if I've ever seen it:

As an additional humorous caveat to this, this article's author was apparently a legit out and out Nazi in the past that blamed gamers for becoming Nazis.

Paul Elam vs Matt Binder in a debate. Binder reminds me of something Roosh once: "It's almost like you can tell someone's political views by just the way they look".

Matt Binder looks like I did before I started lifting. There is no fucking excuse to be that skinny. None.

This week is going to be truly wild.

For the time being, check out the coordination of the mainstream media against gamergate:

http://www.reddit.com/r/GamerGhazi/comme...hat_wrote/

It looks like a massive show of strength, but the fact that they have to attack gamergate so forcefully within a few day timespan shows they are nervous, and trying to kill the movement for good.

I caught this in the replies to Mike's twitter account: https://archive.today/muaky

It looks like some woman is claiming to be a character witness against Zoe Quinn. I haven't read it in entirety yet, but can it be verified?

edit: and god bless Mike. I don't know if the moderators would approve of this suggestion, but I think we should support him in any form if he needs assistance in the future. none of us know where this will go next and mike is a stand up guy with his real life courageously out there. we need to stand behind him at this time.

I honestly think the SJWs have massively overplayed their hand in response to Gamergate. They can no longer hide the fact that they are engaging in conspiratorial behavior by utilizing media platforms to push political and ideological issues. That tactic works when the media consumers think that the writers and editors of the media they are consuming are behaving in an even-handed and at least somewhat objective manner. By absolutely flooding the mainstream media with coordinated progressive groupthink in response to Gamergate, SJWs have essentially only accomplished the feat of "outing" themselves to everyone who's paying attention. Tens of thousands (hundreds of thousands? Millions?) of gamers, most of whom were totally blue pilled and enjoyed video games as an escape mechanism from an increasingly unappealing real world, have now been red pilled very quickly.

This is not going to go away. SJWs will find that gaming becomes an increasingly hostile space for them. The anti-SJW meme has now been firmly planted and begun to take root. Anyone who attempts to push SJW issues in gaming will now be loudly shouted down by a chorus of disgruntled gamers who witnessed Gamergate firsthand. And since gamers are some of the most active and hardcore internet users, you can also expect them to spread the red pill/anti-SJW meme to other corners of the internet as well.

Essentially, by pissing off gamers with their over-the-top and obviously coordinated media conspiracy, SJWs have awoken a sleeping giant. There are tons of previously apathetic or even blue-pilled guys who have become virulently red-pilled/anti-SJW almost overnight. And remember, there is no going back after you've taken the red pill. They will never again fall prey to SJW ideology, nor will they remain silent when SJWs attempt to infiltrate organizations or silence dissent. By demonizing gamers so harshly and engaging in such biased coverage of Gamergate, the only thing the SJW-infested mainstream media managed to accomplish was to push tens of thousands of young men toward the red pill.

It's funny how lots of gamers were so contemptuous of and hostile to some conventional red pill topics like (pickup) game, anti-feminism and anti-statism, but once the SJWs started to attack and appear to gain influence over the games themselves, the gamers flipped teams in a blink.

I totally agree with your analysis, this is the biggest example yet of the feminist industry overplaying a situation and getting blowback for it. The last big one was Adria Richards, but since she was just one person, when she was dismissed from SendGrid the rancor largely went away.

The only thing I'd add is that there will be some counter-blowback from the SJWs who will frame the gamers' hostility as simply a confirmation of everything the SJWs have said about them.
