Wow. Some people just can’t help but compare everything to GamerGate. It’s truly amazing that after a year, the SJW haters in the media will just not let go the fact that they lost the argument. They’ve been seen for what they are and just can’t let their dead meme die a decent death.
The story I’m currently referring to is in Vox and really has nothing to do with GamerGate but the author, Max Fisher, can’t help but compare Donald Trumps “sexist” remarks to those who are GamerGate Supporters. Here’s the relevant paragraph:
GamerGate and Donald Trump might not seem obviously connected, but they are: both are expressions of a disturbingly prevalent belief in the United States that not only is it right and good to hate women, but that hating women is so right and good that anyone who tells you not to hate women is a threat to core American values. Some believe it is such a threat that it is appropriate to punish them by, say, blanketing them in online harassment or calling in a SWAT team to their house.
I honestly don’t get it and I don’t understand how people like this keep their jobs. Writing a piece about how much you dislike Trump has nothing to do with GamerGate. This is Journalism 101, but then most of us know that so-called journalists today have probably never had a basic course in writing, much less journalism. They all seem to be Mass Communication grads from overpriced universities that push an agenda.
But then, I think that’s why many of these writers are in the business. Just look at all the online garbage we all see everyday, not just from Vox, and yes, they are both left and right wing. Does anyone honestly believe that some of these people are not writing to speak the truth to their readers, but to convince the same of their very narrow agenda.
Lies and disinformation is what we mostly receive in the media. Yes, there are some that are very good and seem to look at both sides of an issue/topic but they seem to be rarer and rarer every year.
