The thought police are standing on a pile of bodies. They delight in ruining lives. No one is safe, as everyone from nobodies like Justine Sacco to celebrated scientists like Matt Taylor to ESPN commentators like Curt Schilling have learned. One wrong word and hordes of thugs will seek to get you fired. If you’re a woman like Justice Sacco, violent sociopaths like Anil Dash will send rape mobs your way. If you’re a man who makes a dated joke on Twitter, as Pax Dickinson did, you could easily lose your job or have you career destroyed.
Jon Ronson identified the problems of online hate mobs and SJW public shaming tactics in So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed. Now what? How can you survive a public shaming?
SJWs Always Lie by Vox Day provides the answers.
SJWs Always Lie is a perfect book title, as I learned first hand.
As lifelong free speech advocate, I became involved in #GamerGate upon learning a devious woman and rapist had obtained an unconstitutional restraining order against her ex-boyfriend. The retraining order silenced her rape victim.
As I had done thousands of times before, I put my fingers to the keyboard to share my thoughts about the case. Indeed, my legal writing had been cited in federal court opinions, had been published in legal encyclopedias, and my contributions had been acknowledged in law books.
I had written about federal prosecutors, state prosecutors, and police. As a civil rights lawyer I had actually been involved in lawsuits against the police.
No one ever attacked me with such rabid dishonesty as the social justice warriors.
SJWs lied about every area of my life. They lied about verifiable facts. For example, SJWs claimed I wasn’t a real lawyer. (Anyone can ascertain my ability to practice law by checking the California State Bar website!)
SJWs called me a racist, a rapist, and accused me of moving to Vietnam for underage sex tourism.I also had to stay in a hotel after SJWs attempted to have a police SWAT team sent to my home. A 350-pound woman falsely accused me of threatening her with rape.
Fortunately my business model is anti-fragile. The more hate I receive leads to more books sold.
SJWs actually helped me make Gorilla Mindset a best seller, as my unwavering mindset in the face of their death threats proved the power of mindset.
SJWs lined my pocket with their attacks, and for the most part have moved on to exploit vulnerable people.
Yet even I was a bit shell shocked by the attacks. I had never encountered such hateful people in my life.
SJWs Always Lie would have helped me anticipate their tactics and thus fight more effectively.
SJWs Always Lie is the public relations book every celebrity and public relations strategist deny owning.
Make no mistake, this book is not a polemic against the thought police or an indictment of liberal politics. Even if your politics are to the left of Vox Day’s (and whose aren’t?), you’ll learn potentially career-saving information, as SJWs Always Lie is a how-to book.
In SJWs Always Lie you’ll learn how to defend yourself against the thought police. Chapter 7 – What to Do When SJWS Attack – was my favorite.
Vox lays out a public relations self-defense strategy.
- “Rely on the Three Rs: RECOGNIZE it is happening. REMAIN calm. REALIZE no one cares.”
This is partially true. Vox is correct in pointing your family and friends won’t care. Just step away from the computer and the hate mob loses its power.
However, a large hate mob will begin contacting your employers and causing drama. Your employer may fire you just to stop the mob. It’s worth reminding your employer that firing you will not settle the mob, as their blood lust is infinite.
Even if your employer is contacted, do not quit your job. The mob will eventually move on to another target. Quitting your job is the single biggest mistake victims of online shaming make.
- “Don’t try to reason with them.”
I tried having a civil discussion about GamerGate with Chris Kluwe a former NFL player who has sought to rise to fame by becoming a social justice warrior.
The “discussion” was a disgrace, with Kluwe telling lie after lie with the fervor of a Scientologist.
Kluwe eventually melted down, making racist slurs against Mercedes Carrera.
- “Do not apologize.”
This is the hardest advice to accept. When dealing with sane, normal people apologies have power. We move on. SJWs are not sane, normal people.
An apology is a display of weakness. SJWs will punish you for displaying weakness.
- “Document their every word and action.”
SJWs are hypocrites. Gawker – the same website that outed a gay man, ruining his marriage – wrote a hit piece about me. In turn I documented all of the terrible Tweets made by Gawker and my other attackers.
I ridiculed and laughed at the SJWs. Sam Biddle even had a nervous breakdown and had to take a month off of work after my counter-attacks against him.
Remember SJWs always lie. You must monitor and keep track of their lies, to use for self-defense. A 350-pound SJW began telling others I threatened to rape her. Fortunately I had proof her claims were false, otherwise I may have ended up in jail.
- “Do not resign.”
A liberal feminist scientist named Tim Hunt was falsely accused of making sexist remarks by a vile SJW named Connie St. Louis.
The SJW hate mob attacked. As Tim Hunt had never read SJWs Always Lie, he was caught off guard. He resigned from his position.
Later evidence surfaced showing that Tim Hunt had been falsely accused of making sexist remarks. However his employer would not give him back his job.
If Hunt had not resigned, he’s still have his job.
- “Start nothing, finish everything.”
This is great advice for 99% of people, although some are discovering that waging war against SJWs has many benefits.
SJWs Always Lie is essential reading for today’s man (and woman).
If you’re a regular Danger & Play reader, you’ll be aware of much of the content. That said, SJWs Always Lie is a fascinating historical look at the tactics of online hate mobs.
