SJWs miss the point on #metalgate


SJWs are masters of disguise. Disguising their perceived enemies, that is. They excel at portraying the rest of us as rednecks, klansmen, insecure bullies, backward-ballcap jocks, and other disreputable stereotypes. The problem is that to an SJW, anyone who is not an SJW is the enemy.

This is why resistance movements like GamerGate, which just celebrated its one-year anniversary, and MetalGate, have arisen. We do not necessarily disagree with you. We disagree with how you behave, and we realize that while you behave like Bolsheviks, what motivates you is something far simpler. You’re afraid of being spotted as less important than the greats.

Metal has a good relationship with its heroes. It raises them up and continues to respect them even after their artistic energies fizzle. It does this because metal values hard logic and firm answers, much like it values unflinching realism, both of which are anathema to SJWs. Metal wants right answers and it does not play the political shell game.

This is why SJWs attacked it: they resent it for being wild and free, lawless and uncucked, as well as not under their control. Their goal is to subjugate metal and make it into their bitch. They want it to become a slave that expresses only their political viewpoints, and by doing so, reinforces their importance instead of the greats.

SJWs are also clueless because they continue doubling down even after the trajectory of history has changed. They are now as out of date as Communists in 1991. They hate this and so they are lashing out with increasing amounts of guilt like a drunken grandmother, trying to control and manipulate all of us to follow their own self-destructive, pointless quest.

As Milo Yiannopoulis writes over at Breitbart:

One of the features of GamerGate is that it includes people from every background imaginable. A survey on GamePolitics found a broad mix of liberals, conservatives, and libertarians. Gamers don’t care if you’re black, white, gay, straight, or disabled. All that matters is that you know how to game. They’ll even welcome right-wing bastards like me.

That kind of diversity and tolerance — the genuine kind — frightens cultural authoritarians, not just because they are so mercilessly intolerant to their opponents, but also because it undermines their view of the world. Gaming is that most hated of words in identity politics: a meritocracy. Who you are is unimportant. All that matters is what you know, what you can do, and if you’re being honest with yourself and others about those two things.

Metalgate opposes a leftist movement, but plenty of leftists also opposed Communism. We oppose it because its behavior is wrong and tyrannical, not because we agree or disagree with it, or even want to comment on that subject. SJWs have used that silence to portray us as the Klan or Mussolini when in fact the reality is far simpler: we are defending our music against society trying to take control of it.

    I wonder if any of those SJWs involved in the metal scene, be musicians, journalists and the general hipster audience, are aware of this site´s adversarial stance on the subject? Clearly the articles on this site are the most articulate, convincing and well written out there. By this time the SJW faggosphere should’ve already declared war to and passed the word around enough to target it as their most articulate antagonist.
    Why hasn’t this happened already?

      Being well-spoken and articulate is not as effective in getting people’s attention as dropping your pants and flinging your entrails like a monkey… at least not in the short term. The movement presumably gets more results and also appears less radical by attacking easier, more deranged targets, like someone who, for example, dreams of building a time machine to go back into the past and wants to systematically murder an ethnicity’s greatest men and women in an attempt to create and enforce their inferiority. That would make for chilling fiction.

      They might also launch more attacks if we were more popular, so if you relish the idea of fighting these people, you could try to help promote the site to a general audience.

        Yes that’s why I asked. I would definitely like to promote this site to a more mainstream audience, any suggestions on how? Because I´ve noticed that the general public, unable to tell the difference between Ancient’s first record and Dimmu Borgir’s fourth is unable to address more important issues like the ones presented on this site, be content over surface of hipsters fagging the world.

        My point was that I would assume that if SJWs have an agenda and a plan to take over metal, they’d have to know who is their strongest opponent and at least publicly acknowledge it so as to summon the mighty hive and set out to destroy it.

        1. Gabe Kagan says:

          My gut instinct is that DMU needs to market itself as a bastion of integrity, which isn’t without precedent in the various media forms, and seems to match up reasonably well with our writers’ overall goals. I’m not sure how best to go about that, so my initial plan is to start by making the technical end of the site more user friendly on all devices, and to drive up the quantity and quality of community interactions. If anything gets particularly official, you’ll probably see an article about it.

    Very well done Cory. I’ve said from the beginning that both GG and MG are not reactions to an ideology nearly as much as they are a reaction to shitty behavior.

    For those interested in more interaction with people supporting MetalGate please join us on Facebutt at the link provided.

    Thanks again Cory for doing such a crack job on this topic.
