Remember all those stories in the news where Anita came out against this idea that she’s like the Jack Thompson of the new generation? All those endless statements about how she doesn’t want to change or censor video games. She just wants to make the genre “expand.” Whatever the fuck that actually means. But, as we found out this E3 – that’s bullshit! Turns out, her and Jack Thompson are two peas in a pod! But don’t take that from me. Let’s let her own words damn her. And, you know, I think we need music for this. Some nice background noise for her comeuppance. Hm. What do play. Oh, I know! Let’s play something that shows what she said, as it plays! That’s good. So yeah, here it is –
Wasn’t that nice? Didn’t that music and imagery brighten your day? What’s that? There is rage inside from what a lying fucking hypocrite Anita Sarkeesian is? I mean, wow. Talk about being two-faced. “I’m all about free expression! But not when that expression uses violence!” I’ve always known that Sarkeesian is a con artist, but I think that she’s starting to shoot herself in the foot. It’s getting too easy for people like me to point and laugh at her without mercy. It’s not even like Brianna Wu, who was so OBVIOUSLY trolling this year. Wu is a pathetic, misguided believer. She actually buys into the schtick. But what’s Sarkeesian’s excuse. For someone who has gone so far out of her way to paint her image in broad strokes, it isn’t hard for someone like me to look closer and see that she will flip-flop on a dime. Why?
Oh, right – because she wants the attention. She’s trolling too. Just like her pro-feminism bullshit, not for two seconds do I believe that Sarkeesian is honest about any of her opinions that you saw above. It’s all theater. A performance. As you saw in the video, there is someone who also buys the schtick – Little Johnny McIntosh. Johnny thinks that video games cause violence. Johnny is a trust fund baby who has never had to work a single day in his life. His sheltered existence has led him to never have to interact with anyone. So naturally, he has a view that he is the one who gets the world. Egotism at its best. Anita, on the other hand, is saying what she believes will drive up her trolling levels, so she can get more ammo for her little one-woman crusade for whatever she thinks will make her the most money. Like any con artist, the end goal is green. The girl’s had loads of it, and as we’ve found out, she is not above doing shady things to keep it coming in. Between her exploiting of her non-profit, and the still unaddressed lies connected to her Kickstarter promises, this woman’s ability to make money is almost legendary. But, she has to keep the hate coming in. If she doesn’t keep feeding the trolls, then she going to lose money.
There is a subtle art to it, though. Wu doesn’t know that. People saw her posts, and just like when she tried to troll herself on her Steam page, we didn’t bite. Trolling yourself has to be done with great care. Each carefully-constructed Tweet Sarkeesian sends out is done with the utmost care to generate hate and money. There is not one honest word that has ever come out of her mouth. But I do think that she’s kind of shot herself in the foot here. Why? Because she’s contradicting herself so blatantly. Being connected to Little Johnny and his belief in his schtick may not be the best thing.
I have a belief. Part of me can’t wait to be proven right. My belief is that the moment that Little Johnny isn’t useful to her, she’s going to drop him like a sack of potatoes. She’ll wash her hands of SJWs and it will be hilarious. A con artist is loyal to no one. When the SJWs went after video games, something happened that hadn’t happened to them before – people fought back. Lots of people. Gamers said, “No! We’re not going to let you co-opt our hobby! Find some other group to go after! Gamers couldn’t be bought, bullied, threatened, and their arguments were garbage. Sarkeesian made her money not even bothering to do any of the failed tactics of her contemporaries. She easily skirted around that, by focusing on the hate, and doing enough trolling to get the other trolls fed. However, the tides of this culture war are going to turn.
So where is Sarkeesian’s next stop on her con artist life? You ask me, she wants into academia. A place where she will be met with open arms and a TON of money that has nowhere else to go. Colleges are becoming SJW, hipster cesspools. PT Barnum once said, “there’s a sucker born every minute.” Anita Sarkeesian knows this. For a long time, it has been making her piles of money. But now she’s losing her grip on the situation. She’s overplaying her hand. It will be interesting to see how she comes back from this. Oh, wait, that would involve her actually taking criticism. The day that happens is the day when I own my own velociraptor. So yeah, not anytime soon.
In the meantime, the SJW statements about E3 were priceless. Be it so obvious trolling like Wu, or just dumb hypocrisy, like Sarkeesian. I think that that summarizes SJWs and how they have gone after gaming – trolling and hypocrisy. Yup.
