Gamergate: Where Are They Now? The Successes, Fails & Silencers of #LGBT

Gamergate pitted 2 sides against the other.  Which was right and which was wrong?

That depends on your politics and tolerance for abuse. Both sides employed/deployed bots, trolls and abuse mobs.

Where are they now?

The Women of Gamergate:

Brianna Wu:

The tech CEO and public speaker, former journalist, ran for Congress on a progressive ticket and had an impressive showing (starting from essentially zero) and is building her base for a 2020 run.

Anita Sarkeesian:

Anita continues her work at Feminist Frequency with a podcast & social advocacy.  She wrote a book and continues her public speaking career.

Zoe Quinn:

The artist/programmer/social advocate is now involved in the comic book industry with DC Comics.  Something tells me the character is based on someone we know.

Randi Lee Harper: 

The allegedly racist troll/doxer/hacker harassment mob leader Republican lives off donations to her patreon and is in hiding after daring people to dox her.

Randi, according to journalist Jesse Singal, has silenced marginalized communities (LGBT) with her blocking and autoblocker bot.

Randi herself knew that is a bad strategy to cut off people from their support networks but did it to LGBT advocates purposefully.

Randi has also been called out for this silencing on Twitter where she remains free to troll others.

The Pro Gamergate Side. Such as It Is:

Milo Yiannopoulis

After scoring a $13 million dollar startup fund for Dangerous, Milo has been ostracized by polite society for networking with white supremacists and trolls as part of his shtick.

Milo ocassionally whines on Facebook about the injustice of it all.

Ethan Ralph

Proprietor of a muckraking site, The Ralph Retort, Ralph has returned to limited podcasting after being released from prison. He served time for assaulting law enforcement.

Ethan Ralph is a frequent guest on white nationalist podcasts such as Red Ice.

Ethan Ralph’s political editor Lane Davis shot his own father to death (called him a nazi) and is serving time in prison.

Ralph now spends his time tweeting people about being a convicted felon and suggesting they self harm.

Mike Ma:  Breitbart Journalist Mike Ma was suspended by twitter for abuse and disappeared into the void never to be heard from again. We think he’s “Admin” on Dangerous but who cares?

His Vines were funny but he was a bully.  C’est la vie.

As to a harassment mob leader leading a “war on harassment.”

Republican Randi Lee Harper’s worrying should have informed her behaviors better.

$TWTR @Jack And @Twitter Hate 44 Percent of #Consumers Worldwide, Are Anti #Science

I present Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency.  AKA @Femfreq.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

Unless you are @Jack and @Twitter, and Anita Sarkeesian.

In that case you let a very small subset of consumers label 44% of consumers worldwide as a hate group equivalent to ISIS.

What rational business would allow a small subset to label 44% of available consumers worldwide as a hate group?

Then moderate as if that were the simple truth?

@Jack and @twitter have.

“Gamers” is not listed on the Southern Poverty intelligence report.

Capture

 

1.2 billion people worldwide are gamers.  I am reasonably certain these are people who for the most part aren’t following US politics.

The majority of which are women.

 

Yet if you are a gamer, tweeting to a hashtag on @twitter which Twitter allows, #gamergate, you are labeled as a member of a hate group equivalent to ISIS.

Associating, with a hashtag…

Capture

 

So using twitter as it is designed, means you are a member of a hate group if you tweet to a twitter approved hashtag.

 

Apparently Randi Lee Harper considers it irrefutable that 44% of consumers worldwide belong to a hate group.

 

Yet when Women In Media studies Randi Lee Harper’s data, they found that only .66 percent of people Randi claimed were part of a hate group equivalent to ISIS were online cyberharassers.

This study was conducted in cooperation with Twitter and subjected to rigorous academic peer review.

Capture

 

Actor Adam Baldwin, whose very livelihood depends on free speech tweeted that he was forced to delete the following tweets.

The screenshots look accurate to me, and although he has since deleted the tweet, I saw the screenshot live on twitter about a month ago.

The orginial link is here.

Backtweets.com has an archive of the tweet, with the corresponding media file link.

Capture

 

That media file graphic is now posted on Imgur and presented here.

 

Apparently a statement about gamergators being attractive and joyous offends Twitter.

Apparently someone at Twitter is anti science.

Capture

 

 

Personally I think allowing a few loud customers to label 44% of consumers worldwide as a member of a hate group is abusive in the extreme.

I have no doubt this active hate of consumers is well known worldwide, and is leading to a massive loss in popularity, growth, and a corresponding lowering of stock price and destruction of investors capital.

 

Yet far from being concerned about this, @Jack and @twitter have placed Anita Sarkeesian on their Orwellian Trust and Safety Council.

Capture

 

@Jack is destroying Twitter as Anita Sarkeesian and Randi Lee Harper ride the wave to fame.

And yet Randi Lee Harper can silence LGBT on Twitter, negatively impacting the psychological health of that marginalized group.

Kinda weird, that.

 

That is my truth to power.

I am not excusing legitimate harassment women receive.

$TWTR And @Jack; Throttling #socialmedia, Crushing #influencernetworking And Empowering Hate, Misogyny And Patriarchy

@Jack think that $TWTR is for empowered dialogue, blah, blah, blah.

I think @Jack is misleading and does not care how his Terms of Service is structured to punish communication and is easily abused by his personally empowered abuser, @Randileeharper.

 

 

So let’s start by examining what talking to a delusional fundamentalist is like.

Meet Journalist and Writer Damien Walter.  He writes for The Guardian and other fine publications.

Capture

Damien is a person who likes to think he knows how social media functions.

 

Having a conversation with a journalist who assumes he is wholly correct is tedious, difficult and ultimately pointless as they are rigidly bound to their ideology and unable to process new and valid information.

 

Conversation

 

So how does Randi Lee Harper abuse @twitter consumers beyond being openly threatening?

 

First, along with Anita Sarkeesian @femfreq, Brianna Wu @spacekatgal and Zoe Quinn @unburntwitch, label anyone who doesn’t agree with you as part of a hate group.

 

This includes 44% of consumers worldwide, who by disagreeing with these 4 in some way, winded up labeled as a hate group equivalent to ISIS.

 

And yet she knows she is falsely labeling a very large preponderance of people that tweet to #gamergate as a hate group.

 

Set out to build an army.

 

Twitter took sides with a tiny amount of people that labeled people tweeting to a hashtag as a Hate Group.

 

They can silence media news coverage.

 

@Nero, AKA Milo Yiannopoulos is a professional journalist last seen in a White House press briefing asking questions.

 

She silences LGBT, who are amongst the most marginalized of people already.

 

And controls them with fear and intimidation, leaving them socially isolated on @twitter.

 

 

As Randi Lee Harper, meta data expert knows, SJW Twitter is the worst, and she exploits it’s behavior to abuse.

 

So how can Randi Lee Harper silence you?

Besides meeting with @safety, that is.

 

By ToS manipulation and abuse.

Randi likes to claim that tweeting her valid questions is inciting dog piling.

This despite no intent to dogpile.  I was simply following up with the person, Cathy Young, that @randileeharper claimed was sending followers to dogpile her.

“Incitement” is against ToS.  Yet @twitter will suspend you without even determining your intent, or the validity of the speech itself.

This of course CHILLS free speech, but it’s what twitter considers.

 

Capture

Interestingly twitter claims to prohibit false or misleading tweets, but those tweets by @randileeharper seem to not be moderated.

Capture

 

Also mentioned is adding large number of unrelated users to lists.  Randi categorizes 44% of consumers, gamers as members of a Hate group, and propagates that block list to subscribers.

The only way they are remotely related is playing games, but Randi adds large numbers to lists and blocks them.

And then you can end up suspended for being blocked by a large number of people.

So this little ball of hate is empowered by @jack to limit free speech and consumers ability to utilize Twitter as they see fit, without actual threats to any other consumers.

Capture

 

It’s the craziest business decision I have seen in a long time.

Letting 44% of consumers be labeled as a Hate Group?

And Randi has contacts inside @twitter @safety.

And Twitter wonders what is wrong.

 

 

Turn IT UP!

Special thanks to @Klout.
