    You missed Geert Wilders being prosecuted in Holland “‘on charges of insulting a group of people based on race and incitement to discrimination and hatred.'”

    Or in other words, exactly what the feminist inspired social justice warriors of the science fiction and fantasy community have been doing for the last few years with impunity with racial and sexual slurs, demonization theories about racial privilege and innuendoes about a Golden Age of SF KKK.

    The irony is delicious and straight to the point since SJWs hate men like Wilders while at the same time making him proud by mimicking what they call his hate speech. SJWs call their own hate speech “anger at books that rely on racist tropes” and “pointing out racism and sexism.”

    The problem is prominent SJW bloggers at the web site associate of the largest publisher of SF in the world leave sympathetic comments at sites that write “… we consider buffaloes especially stupid as animals go. The perfect analogy for white men”

    You have this stunning remark about “you, white person, probably straight cishet and able-bodied, have put everyone in their place and are left standing atop a pile of bodies” written by the SFF SJW person who created the #illridewithyou hashtags for Muslims before the Sydney Siege was even over. And what topic is she discussing there? Yup, the woman who made the crack about white men and buffaloes who was nominated for the John W. Campbell Award by the same morons who got rid of U.K. TV personality Jonathan Ross as a Hugo presenter because a former Hugo nominee literally cried on Twitter about a “White Dude parade.”

    And here’s a N.Y. Times best-seller who holds writing workshops for non-whites only: “White male privilege cares ONLY about white male privilege, and there is no goal except maintaining that position of power.”

    Fortunately, I have no idea who those authors are, and doubt I’ll ever read (much less buy) any of the crap they’re peddling.

    The larger point is this mainstreaming of hate speech got a fraternity shut down and has deprived men in college of due process by calling hate speech anti-rape. Elsewhere someone has pointed out that “anti-racism” usually means “anti-white” in social justice warrior-land. People are seeing their jobs and careers threatened by discrimination that amounts to open public collusion. Anita Sarkeesian laughs at the Comics Code and feminists laugh at Geert Wilders while each mimics the thing they profess to disdain. It is a con game. People are not reacting to Sarkeesian because she is critiquing video games but because she is doing the equivalent to going into an ethnic neighborhood and yelling slurs. Wilders points up there is no race/gender-neutral definition of hate speech all can benefit by. He should have plenty of company. Back to SFF, when the SFWA expelled one of their members for hate speech, they essentially expelled themselves as well, but only one left.

    Now, they demand an on-scene after-action damage assessment ..

    North Korea proposed a joint investigation with the United States on the cyberattack against Sony Pictures, calling the charge by the FBI that it was behind the hack “slander,” state media said on Saturday.

    An unnamed spokesman of the North’s foreign ministry said there would be “grave consequences” if Washington refused to agree to the joint probe and continued to accuse the North, the official KCNA news agency reported.
