Via Nydrwracu comes this:
If I were to make a Venn diagram of people who 1. are aware of NRx, 2. are anti-gamergate, and 3. are anti-NRx, and 4. post comics on tumblr, the grouping that would result in the middle would be vanishingly small. I bet it’s a Less-Wrongian.

Not obviously LWian from their tumblr, just standard-issue feminist SJW anti-gamergate. Note the hyphen in neo-reactionaries. That formulation as a has run ahead of actual NRx, I think

Aww, I just checked their tumblr and you’re sadly correct. Whoever it is, they’re simply another SJW idiot. Weird that they’d use the “neo” formulation in calling #GG reactionary, though. I guess it’s gone viral? As in, maybe they saw the word used somewhere without comprehending what it meant? That would be interesting. Certainly, there’s been an unusually high amount of crossover between gamergate and NRx. (Or maybe not so unusual when you consider the demographics behind both groups.)

In truth, a number of us (@jokeocracy among them) have been retweeting mostly pro-GG (though a bit of anti-GG where it doesn’t come from SJW) stuff. From this, a clever but not very patient SJW might think that we’re providing the impetus behind this, especially since we’re supposedly ‘silicon reich’ in the prog imagination (misinformation delightfully provided by their own rags.)

The #Yolo backronym picture “Yog-sothoth’s Omnicide of Living Organisms” is pretty great.
You can find Lovecraftian fascism in all things.
“Dinosaur Birthday Party” is also acceptable.
I can’t figure out if this is intended to be pro-NRx or anti-NRx.
Anti. Have a look at their other posts.

I see that, but I’m still left wondering if there’s some deep, multilayered trolling going on. Could somebody be aware of NRx enough to depict it manipulating Gamergate and not be aware that depicting it as a Lovecraftian horror would be kind of flattering?

I was certainly flattered.
Cool. We’ve graduated into existential horror.
And yet so many of the anti-gamergaters have the ‘Innsmouth Look’. Sexual relations are so much less problematic when fertilization is exosomatic and carried out with a pond for your safe space.

It’s great advertising for neoreaction to accuse it of being behind controversial events with significant numbers of supporters. Let’s hope this goes viral.

Unfortunately the drawing is not entirely correct. How do we make it so? We need to selectively push certain driving ideas behind GG and tone others down. Like the idea that gender equality is good, but anti-GGers are faux-egalitarians – that’s a harmful perspective which needs to be pushed out of the picture. Another idea that needs to be reformed is the notion that games are only entertainment and not culture – not sure myself what the best alternative picture to present here is, but it’s highly problematic.
Simpler formulation: we need to push GGs into self-identifying as reactionaries and anti-progressives, but avoiding what progs would call ‘knee-jerk reaction’. The last part is what is difficult, because the GG ‘movement’ largely lacks affirmative values.

There’s just no good angle there, but the least bad one is probably the one that takes out Zoe Quinn, Sam Biddle, and Gamma Rabbit: the point of progressivism is to provide a ‘respectable’ justification for sadists to engage in sadism. In other words, they won’t stop until they are stopped from outside.
This is beautiful. And they say modern art is worthless.
Wonder what the ROI would be in seeding the tumblr-sphere/SJW-verse with these kinds of memes?
Good. No more games, the bitches took your games away too.
Now get out to the garage.
And build fucking weapons. Or something, but the manly choice weapons.
Men shouldn’t be playing games.
Games are for teaching children to be men or ladies, and you’re turning into spinsters with penises. Useless.
Put another way Marge Simpson has utility cuz of children, her sisters have none. Spinsters with no wombs=zero utility.
We’ll need drones to counter the drones. Usually the best counter is the same weapon, see infantry, tanks, submarines, fighters.
Get to work, game playing over.

Nah, screw your “weapons” and “utility.”
It’s time for us men to *really* regain our manhood. I think you know where I’m going with this. It’s time to LARP — and LARP like we’ve never LARPed before.

Not sure but if it’s real and not digital fine! Better! Something! Anything!!
Go kill an animal and eat it! 4 legged please. At least the eating ones.
Geezus. Go buy an axe and chop down a tree then chop it up into firewood. I DID.
And I taught my nephew to do same. Small steps are fine.
BTW – the chopping and splitting should be different axes, but if just one fine. It’s harder to split with a chopping axe is all.

Nah, I’m more into the kind of LARPing where it’s all done on those little carts at the supermarket for the morbidly obese.
And no Kultur doesn’t actually matter compared to Law, Finance, Bureaucracy, media, academia and at least the statutory obedience of the military and police. Actually Kultur is shit compared to all of that.
Now that’s if any child’s game including the video games were culture. Only in terms of how children are raised, something that needs to stop by age 12 at the latest. Nursery Rhymes aren’t adult culture, and neither are video games. We played guns, cops and robbers as kids or “War” as we called it to learn one of Manhood’s primary duties. We did it with sticks if nothing else. Bang/bang gotcha you’re dead, no I’m not you are etc. I think it stopped around 12 due to onset of puberty.
Shit at least upgrade to Airsoft or paintball, lasertag.
But Culture isn’t Power. Culture sings for it’s supper. Period. Enlightenment intellectuals with no patrons died of starvation and obscurity. Bourbons were weak for decades, Intellectuals had an audience and patrons so they ate=French Revolution. Which ate most of them.
Culture is what happens when Action is sitting still, and feels the necessity of consolidating it’s power. Which is what gamergate is, the Left consolidating it’s power per it’s normal pattern of taking everything to insane extremes, when all our games are politically correct you may be assured Porn is next, probably followed by a resumption of Gaia Sacred ways of defecation and wiping – something they’ve already “culturally” been working on for 15+ years. Sacral defecation is why we don’t have reliable Flush toilets now, banned in 90’s Universally.
It seems silly that a Universal ban on a working toilet worked globally, but it did. It worked cuz the males were jerking off, smoking weed and playing video games.
We need counterdrones, drone anti-sensor platforms, airborne communications, active and passive countermeasures. We need CNC milling platforms, see ghostgunner.net. We need the entire range of industries, and we’ll need it until air parity deep underground. We need burst communications that has a simple user interface for someone running, tired, sleep deprived pushes 1-2 buttons and SEND. We need secure bluetooth or equivalent scatternets, we need to find that Iraqi kid who in 2006 Iraq figured out a way to scale said scatternets above 8 all the way to 15 and jump/steal/copy/improve that protocol in both human and machine terms for scaling purposes.
And note something – as soon as conversation went into social networking war you should know ISIS is doing this successfully now since they started their 2014 offensive. They’ve combined simple executive mission orders with social networking to win tactically across the board, they flash mob small scattered groups of 3 vehicles and 8-10 men into larger formations with a rapid offensive swarming tactics, or just rapid offensive massing and attacks. Said flash massing and offensives that take advantage of technology to remain decentralized into small groups [to counter air strikes] then rapidly mass and attack is how ISIS has been winning, they’re running over the old systems and thought patterns of the US old school trained Iraqi staffs [still working with Napoleonic and worse French WW1 staff/command systems from Western Front, cuz that’s American Army Doctrine YEP] and they’re overruning them with rapid offense [but not raw numbers, quite the contrary] before they even have the Staffs assembled for the meetings. <== a weakness known for decades but the American Military personnel system is vested in lots of extra officers, so huge staffs.
We – and understand ISIS is a test bed for the new social networked swarm doctrines discussed for decades – we are being defeated in land warfare with our own tools and intellectual innovations. Swarming in the Military was being discussed a decade before flash mobs.
We need thinkers to improve fighters chances.
We need anyone reading this to grab their balls before they touch the keyboard. Then once that's done understand where the lines are. Of course understand this is all just for simulation purposes of improving our ARMA III scores your Honor. Sir. If you can't understand that, talk to my lawyer. If you can't grit your teeth to say those 3 sentences then….don't show up.
But really we need to work on improving ARMA 3 and social networking into ARMA and Call of Duty game scores.
It seems these games aren't so useless after all. Talk to my attorney otherwise.
WE.NEED.STUFF. MEN.BUILD.STUFF. GET BUSY.

As it happens, Gamergate may actually be the Gateway to Manhood.
We need to improve our Call Of Duty and ARMA 3 scores.
