People keep asking me what I think about the recent WorldCon 2018 freak out and the usual suspects currently beclowning themselves in an effort to see who is the most offended, and who can virtue signal the hardest about how they’re offended too… but after exposing the Hugos as a politically biased circle jerk, I retired from Hugoing years ago. I proved my point. All my people moved on with life. We’d rather go someplace actually fun.
However when you’ve got a culture addicted to outrage, if the people they’re usually outraged about aren’t around anymore, they’ve still got to get outraged at somebody. They chased away everybody with the wrong politics, got the all-progressive paradise they’ve always wanted, and then promptly started yelling at each other for being insufficiently woke.
I’m curious to see if any of my left wing author friends will actually stand up and say enough with this nonsense, you’re killing our con, grow up. But I’m betting not, because they’re scared of the angry mobs they helped create. Wimps.
So the entirety of my official statement on this latest WorldCon clusterfuck is:
Told you so.
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch. Y’all deserve each other.
