Video Claims to Prove Pedophilia Accusation Against #GamerGate Critic UPDATE: Yiannopoulos Says Girl’s Parents Will Contact Law Enforcement

Posted on | September 4, 2015 | 32 Comments

A shocking new video released this week has brought new attention to claims of pedophilia made against a longtime critic of the #GamerGate movement. The video quotes Internet chat logs attributed to Sarah Nyberg expressing sexual interest in preteen girls, including a relative.

The 15-minute Youtube video got more than 40,000 views in the first two days after its release Tuesday. It highlights chat logs dating to 2006 in which Nyberg, who was 20 years old at the time, apparently defends pedophilia, admits collecting photos of preteen girls, and repeatedly mentions a female cousin named Dana who was 8 years old at the time.

In one of the online chats shown in the video, the person identified as Nyberg says: “I’m a submissive male to female transsexual pedophile . . . that really misses dana. . . . I’ll see her in about a month.” The chats also appear to show Nyberg saying, “I think I might want to make a pedophile activism-type site” and expressing sexual attraction to Dana: “I’ve said I’m a pedophile and that I’m attracted to her. Why is that surprising?”

 

 

 

Critics of #GamerGate have continued defending Nyberg, asserting on Twitter that the chat logs could be fabricated. However, journalist Milo Yiannopoulos said he is working on a news article:

I spoke to the parents [of Dana]. I wanted to let them know what was happening before they potentially got any other phone calls from interested third parties, and to share the worst of the chat logs so they knew what was out there and could prepare themselves for any questions.
I made it clear to them that we will protect their daughter’s identity by obscuring her name and precise relationship to Nyberg in any story we publish and I’ve given them the option to comment on the record. So far they have not.
The girl’s father told me that he made sure they were never left alone together at the time the chats were happening — a comment he has repeated elsewhere online. Make of that what you will.
The story is currently working its way through Breitbart’s legal process. I hope to be able to share it with you all soon.

On Twitter, Yiannopoulos called it “a serious story with real victims.”

In fall 2014, after #GamerGate began as a criticism of unethical behavior in the videogame industry, Nyberg joined the critics of #GamerGate. Nyberg subsequently tried to shut down funding for the website 8chan.net, which had supported #GamerGate, by falsely accusing them of hosting child pornography. This resulted in the exposure of Nyberg’s past, and in March, Nyberg published a column at a feminist website with the headline, “I Set Out To Expose A Hate Movement In Gaming — So They Set Out To Destroy My Life,” denouncing the accusations of pedophilia as “heinous lies” and “defamation.”

Nyberg has been accused of retaliating against her critics, including games blogger The Ralph Report, who expressed pleasure at a hint by Yiannopoulos that Nyberg could go to prison.

#GamerGate supporters have started the #IStandWithDana hashtag.

“God gave them up unto vile affections . . . God gave them over to a reprobate mind . . .”
Romans 1:26-28 (KJV)

UPDATE: One of the venues that published Sarah Nyberg was the BoingBoing gaming site OffWorld. In an e-mail to OffWorld editor Leigh Alexander, Milo Yiannopoulos wrote that he had “contacted the parents of the 8-year-old girl” mentioned in the chat logs attributed to Nyberg, and the parents “will be approaching local and federal law enforcement” about the case, once Yiannopoulos’s story is published.

    I’m still trying to wrap my head around anti-#GamerGate supporting Nyberg despite evidence of Nyberg being a child predator.

    When evidence of Nyberg being into bestiality and children first hit the internet, serial abuser Randi Harper started #IStandWithButts (at least I think that was what the hashtag was). That was around the beginning of 2015 if I’m not mistaken. Since then, they have had evidence upon evidence proving that their out-of-context-screenshoting hero is a child predator and yet they still will not even distance themselves from Nyberg.

    It must be a sad and lonely existence when your hero is a pedo and you are delusional enough to keep following them.

  • texlovera

    I have not followed this story very closely, so can someone explain this to me:

    If you support #GamerGate, does that mean you oppose the SJWs trying to feminize the videogame industry?

    If so, that would mean Nyberg is one of the SJWs, correct?

  • robertstacymccain

    The phrase “child predator” is too strong, I think, given the state of evidence as we know it. The authenticity of the chat logs remains a matter of dispute, which is why the word “apparently” is used to describe the content. There are several problems with making assumptions based on the kind of information we have at this point.

    The video is newsworthy — 40,000+ viewers, concerning a person involved in a public controversy. So I am reporting the fact of the video, and the assertions presented therein, without presuming to validate the authenticity of the quoted content of the chat logs. However, the content of the chat logs appears consistent with other statements by Nyberg that can be validated as authentic. And I would argue that Nyberg has failed to provide anything like an actual defense, but instead has played the victim — a martyr for “social justice” — characterizing even the verified material as a smear. This simply will not do, and Nyberg’s allies aren’t helping matters by echoing that.

    We will see what Milo publishes. He may have been able to obtain information we haven’t yet seen, and this could change the story. In the meantime, let’s don’t pretend to know anything we don’t actually know.

  • robertstacymccain

    Nyberg is an SJW. Correct.

  • Ilion

    Just in case Gentle Reader isn’t aware (having missed or forgotten RSM’s earlier posting concerning “Sarah”), “Sarah Nyberg” is one of those XY “women”, though I don’t recall his real name.

  • Fail Burton

    To no one’s surprise, the accusations of woman-hatred, homophobia and racism by anti-GG is based on gay third wave feminist assumptions that straight white men are innately bigoted, not quotes. On the other hand, the accusation third wave feminists are racist, genderphobic, misandrists is based on a decades-long list of quotes by actual named people which continue to this very day. At no time do we do what gender feminism itself does and simply take out vast swaths of millions of people based on their race and sex. That difference in using citations as opposed to using group defamation as a “source” tells you everything you need to know about this feminist con game. “Straight white man” is not a footnote, it is hate speech, and a type of speech which has flooded science fiction, comics and gaming.

  • Fail Burton

    “Lesbianize” would be a better word. Although the majority of do-gooders working against so-called woman-hatred in gaming aren’t lesbians, they have taken on that ideology as a cause in the same way whites did black causes during the Civil Rights era. The difference is there was genuine institutional discrimination then, not these chimeras about a patriarchy which enslaved women by creating a gender binary and tabus against incest. All the main themes Wu and Sarkeesian push are based on French Queer Theory.

  • Dianna Deeley

    I am so revolted I can’t really come up with something cogent to say.

    Gamergate can seem murky and weird (gamers, duh!), but this is pretty clear-cut. You can’t punish someone for their thoughts, but those chats are really worrisome. I hope the family is very aware, and watching like hawks.

    So, it turns out that the 8chan aspect of this affair does rather neatly dovetail with one of the recurring aspects of Progressives: specifically, their tendency for psychological projection. As has been pointed out already and repeatedly, if you want to know what they are (or want to be) doing, just look at the accusations they throw at others.

  • kbiel

    What a disgusting and bent individual. I truly hope that justice finds him here on Earth.

    “Nyberg has been accused of retaliating against her critics”

    It should be “his critics”. Y-chromosomes matter and anyone talking about getting an erection is not a “her” psychologically (or however they defend it) either.

  • Mm

    An note resting story would be how Twitter assisted an admitted pedophile in purging tweets CITING HIS OWN COMMENTS, as harassment. How many other pedophiles has Twitter helped because it agreed with their politics?

  • Mm

    I have to agree. Taking part in a person’s delusion is a bad idea.

  • DeadMessenger

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find out that Milo has an ace up his sleeve.

  • DeadMessenger

    It’s not only feminization, but progressivism of video games.

    Stacy recommended Vox Day’s book, above. I highly recommend it. It’s short, sweet, and to the point, without getting bogged down in a bunch of boring details. It keeps moving, in other words, and filled in a lot of blanks. Five stars from me on Amazon.

    I followed that up with Jack Cashill’s book Scarlet Letters: The Ever-Increasing Intolerance of the Cult of Liberalism, which is turning out to be amazing, and chock-full of delicious quotes by both the author and the intolerant liberals in question; quotes that I will happily bludgeon liberals with forward-going. Haven’t finished yet, but this will also get five stars from me.

  • DeadMessenger

    Seems like the girl’s father is, though there’s no word on whether “Nyberg’s” parents know about his proclivities and what they think. Last I’d heard, he lives at home. If I were his parent, he’d have to be in (Christian) therapy, never be at my home unsupervised, and have no access to internet if he wanted to live with me.

  • DeadMessenger

    I’d guess many, which is why I don’t do Twitter. It’s run by SJWs. ‘Nuff said.

    If the logs are real, then this person is an unrepentant pedophile and therefore a sexual predator.

    I’ve had the misfortune of encountering this type of person online many times over the years. They’re far more hidden now, and far less likely to be forthcoming about their desires, and the actions those desires lead to. But in the not too distant past they would show up in various chat rooms and forums, and attempt to convert them over to pedophile playgrounds, in much the same way that SJWs do with the institutions they target through their entryism.

    They are ALL sexual predators. They are either actively abusing children themselves, or contributing to the abuse of children by being consumers of child pornography. Just as SJWs always lie, pedophiles always abuse children.

    Now we don’t yet have conclusive proof that these logs are real. I’m not going to definitively condemn someone based on this level of evidence. I’m waiting to see what more there is before I reach a final conclusion. However, my tentative conclusion is that these logs are real and that this person is yet another sexual predator / pedophile (birm).

    We shall see if I’m right.

  • RS

    Why the insistence upon using the pronoun “they” for a male in a wig and a dress? If we are going to fight this lunacy, we must begin with language. In short, if you’ve got a dick, you’re a “he.” End of story.

  • texlovera

    Tx, DM. I’ll have to check those out…

  • Fail Burton

    And true to their natures, SJWs are blaming “misogyny,” a flimsy con game only the mentally crippled could buy into. What an amazing coincidence neurotic lesbian ideologues would construct a theory which lights up all men on Earth.

  • Fail Burton

    Sociopaths support sociopaths. They are obsessed with the idea they are the chosen few good people in the world.

  • Daniel Freeman

    I read somewhere that the kid’s dad said that at the time of those chat logs, they never left the kid alone with Nyberg. There was no elaboration about why, but we can guess — my money is on creepy vibes — and I expect we’ll learn more when Milo’s article comes out.

  • Wombat_socho

    I’m going to be reviewing Vox’s book later tonight, but I agree: excellent manual on the Social Justice Wankers and how to fight back. I’d give it six stars if Amazon allowed it.

  • Wombat_socho

    Probably to avoid the confusion between the female name Sarah, by which the accused pedo is known, and the male pronoun he. Grammar.

  • DeadMessenger

    I don’t even care if a dick is present. If you’ve got XY chromosomes, you’re a “he” in my book. Homey don’t play dat “identifies as” crap.

    Note though, there are very few people who are born hermaphrodite or XXY. THOSE people get to choose what gender they identify as. Anyone else who does is mentally ill.

  • DeadMessenger

    With Stacy it’s probably force of habit. With me (you may have noticed), grammar is a fluid thing, so no trouble for me calling Sarah Nyberg “he”. : )

    And now that I think about it…if the chat logs are real, then “Sarah” talks about getting an erection *gag*. How would any normal person reconcile that with self-identifying as a woman? For the good of society, this guy should be living in an institution, not running around loose.

    For that matter, maybe there should be fewer prisons and more nut houses? I don’t know, but it seems like there’s people in prison who shouldn’t be, and people who ought to be in prison who aren’t.

  • DeadMessenger

    Maybe not even creepy vibes. I wouldn’t leave my kid alone with a mentally ill person of any type (just for the unpredictability factor), but especially not one who acts out sexually.

  • Finrod Felagund

    I once ran across a video of someone who had XXXY chromosomes. They were immune to most viruses because of it.

  • Shawn Smith

    This is familiar ground for leftists. Look up Samuel Delaney, Walter Breen, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Harry Hay, Terrance Bean, Harvey Milk…the list could go on. They do not care at all. The vilest behavior, including pedophilia, is excusable for someone advancing the cause.

  • Shawn Smith

    Vox Day’s Rule 3: SJWs always project. From a comment I read a couple of years ago on Correia’s blog: If I woke up tomorrow and read that the Left was accusing conservatives of cannibalism, my first thought would be “Oh, my God! The Left is eating people!”

  • Lulu

    I pity his parents can you imagine the horror

    If you support #GamerGate, then it means you oppose those who target video game players for harassment for the “crime” of being video game players. It means you support honest reporting by journalists covering video games and video game players/developers.

    Feminization is a term that doesn’t make sense in this context.

    Nyberg is one of the people who attacked video game players for being video game players and tried to pretend that the people who didn’t like these attacks, collectively referred to as #GamerGate supporters, are racists, sexists, bigots, and any other number of horrible things — none of them true. This is what SJWs do, they lie about other people and will often project their own crimes onto the targets of their lies.

    Turns out that, if this evidence against Nyberg is true, then HE is far worse than what he dishonestly accused others of.
