Dear Conservative media: most of you belong in jail, today The Covington scandal proves that American journalists are unhinged, dishonest, disreputable and cruel. Most unforgivable of all, though, are the Republican phonies and collaborators.

Apparently, the few remaining non-pedophile Democrats have been feeling left out and needed a way that they, too, could ruin children’s lives. This weekend they found it. A Native American hate crime hoax targeted children from a Christian school, Covington Catholic, wrongly claiming that its students were hateful bigots taunting a defenseless old Native American elder. The truth? They’d been called “faggots” by black Hebrew protesters and…

Confirmed: GOG employee fired after using trending hashtag Casual use of trending hashtag #WontBeErased triggered a doxing and harassment campaign that got social media manager Linko fired.

A joke or silly misunderstanding is all it takes to get fired these days. Disturbed people who feel inadequate and left behind by normal, healthy society coalesce into self-radicalizating echo chambers on the internet — and evolve into digital mobs itching for any opportunity to exact revenge against the world that hurt them. This is cancel culture. And cancel culture has now got popular GOG community manager…

Youtuber banned after hilarious murder—of female video game character Viral RDR2 video of feminist pixels being fed to alligator pixels was too much for YouTube in latest fiasco.

When Shirrako discovered an “annoying” suffragette in Red Dead Redemption 2, he thought it’d be funny to dispatch her in various creative ways and upload the clips to his YouTube channel about gaming. One of the videos showed his character using the cowboy game’s lasso to drag her to an alligator stationed outside town, which, it turns out, has a hankering for NPC meat. The video went…

Hysterical mob targets Pewds after Ben Shapiro guests Meme Review The more ambitious crossover event than Avengers: Infinity War earns wide acclaim — and deranged diatribes.

Okay, this is epic. PewDiePie — the world’s most popular YouTube personality and generally wholesome Swedish funnyman — enlisted prominent conservative Ben Shapiro to help respond to memes on the November 2nd edition of his meme reviewing show. And the boo-hoo now being cultivated in the chronically too online petri dish would give Morton Salt a run for its money. Here’s a sample: Having Shapiro on Meme…

Cyberpunk 2077 devs doxed, harassed after use of “trans” hashtag #WontBeErased Lack of reverence for sacred hashtags will not be tolerated. Game journalists now join the doxing and harassment campaign against Polish game studio CD Projekt Red.

It’s no secret — social justice activists in the gaming community form brigades to pressure gaming studios into firing employees that they deem guilty of wrongthink. All it takes is one bad tweet, one errant comment, a dismissive gesture, or a harmless joke to trigger a crusade to ruin the lives of everyone involved. And they are now bringing their harassment to the next level by doxing…

Linux developers threaten to pull “kill switch” UPDATE: ESR: "threat has teeth." Most of the internet could be affected as some Linux devs threaten to rescind code in response to CoC controversy.

Update (September 24): new response from Richard M. Stallman, and Eric S. Raymond (ESR) says the license revocation “threat has teeth.” Linux powers the internet, the Android in your pocket, and perhaps even some of your household appliances. A controversy over politics is now seeing some of its developers threatening to withdraw the license to all of their code, potentially destroying or making the whole Linux kernel…

New Yorker fact-checker falsely claims war hero’s tattoo is ‘nazi symbol’ UPDATE: Lavin out of a job over the incident.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is calling out the stuffy, liberal magazine for “baselessly slandering” a Marine veteran after fact-checker Talia Lavin wrongly accused one of their agents of sporting a “Nazi tattoo.” Lavin made remarks that Justin Gaertner, who lost both his legs in Afghanistan and is now an ICE forensics analyst, had a tattoo on his elbow that was a Nazi Iron Cross. ICE said in a statement the embarrassing…

Congratulations #MeToo… You’ve made women employees radioactive

CEO’s open letter about the consequences of the #MeToo movement was too hot for LinkedIn. We bring it back from the dead. This open letter about the consequences of the #MeToo movement was posted to LinkedIn by Jan Turn on June 11, 2018 (archive: https://archive.fo/y3dQi) and quickly went viral. An outrage campaign — helped in no small part by journalists — got it deleted. And so we…

Was Anthony Bourdain facing a #MeToo allegation? The very women he purported to love and respect would dance like banshee witches on his corpse if it turned out that one of their sisters had the fury of a woman scorned.

Even though I have never particularly cared for Anthony Bourdain’s swaggering, leftie, virtue-signalling persona – his holier-than-thou pretentiousness about how much he loved and admired and respected women while banging starlets half his age – and good for him, it’s the hypocrisy I resent, not the younger women – I was still saddened this morning to hear of his death, apparently by suicide. Bourdain was a well-kept,…

HuffPo editor Chloe Angyal brags about slashing white authors to below 50%, but won’t fire herself A Huffington Post deputy editor is receiving backlash after celebrating her textbook discriminatory publication goals.

In a tweet (deleted at some point after publishing this article — archive), Chloe Angyal stated, “Our goals for this month were: less than 50% white authors (check!), Asian representation that matches or exceeds the US population (check!), more trans and non-binary authors (check, but I want to do better).” Something tells us that Angyal, as an ‘over-represented’ white person, won’t be handing in her resignation any…

NY court to determine if Maddox is legally a ‘cuck’ Interesting twist in internet comedian's $20 million lawsuit.

Older readers may remember The Best Page in the Universe and its caustic childrens’ art critiquing writer, Maddox (George Ouzounian). The comedian has in years since hemorrhaged humor almost as fast as relevance, and he is now suing approximately half the internet for making fun of him online. The latest motion in the widely ridiculed $20 million case reveals that Maddox’ status as an actual “cuckold” has…

Subnautica developer fired for retweeting conservatives The hate mob strikes again.

Subnautica developer and sound designer Simon Chylinski became the target of a social justice-driven hate mob on Twitter after he shared tweets by conservative journalist Paul Joseph Watson. Chylinski was subsequently fired by his employers at Unknown Worlds following a sustained campaign over the weekend by social justice activists on both Twitter and the ResetERA gaming forums, who called on the developer and publisher to act against…

Twitch forces black streamer to submit DNA analysis over african cooking show Another race flap is the last thing Twitch needs right now.

Streaming giant Twitch has caused outrage after banning an African-American girl for her Africa-themed cooking show and seeming to accuse her of being a white cultural appropriator. The girl — youtuber Brittany Venti — was then forced into the humiliating position of having to submit an actual DNA analysis to prove her descent, shocking Twitch Support screenshots reveal. “This is insanity,” Brittany shared on Twitter. “I can’t…
