I've seen them go back and talk about old movies and TV shows to bitch about social justice issues.


On SA, they started to infiltrate the Comic Strip Megathread. Think about that. A thread that started as making fun of a slowly-dying medium and people just *had* to start posting old James Bond comic strips from British papers so they could bitch about misogyny. You could almost hear the scraping of the soapboxes.

I'm particularly bitter about it because it was my "go-to" thread for several years. There were lots of fun edits but then it just became a place to dump as many comics as you could find so others could find social issues to bitch about.

Yep. This is from the other day.

Quote from: The Sezza" post="421892178
From what I remember, "shala shala" is a made-up phrase for what English 'sounds like' to Korean speakers. It's kind of like an English speaker saying a Chinese language sounds like "ching chong", only less horrendously cringe-worthy.

Because if a Korean mocks English speakers it's not racist at all, but if an English speaking person mocks Chinese speakers it's horribly racist. :judy:

I very nearly called him out in the thread but I'm trying to fly under the radar on SA with my views and it wasn't worth derailing the thread and making it worse.

Also of note: almost every time a black person is drawn in a comic it's "blackface."

For the most part, businesses generally cow to these people, which only emboldens them.  I think Chick Fil A was the only people who stood their ground, everyone else seems to wilt.  SJW shit only works if people are receptive to their attacks.  A lot of these companies need to sack up and not give a shit what these unemployed, unwashed masses think.

I don't want to get too far off the point of noting what an SJW crybox Cracked is becoming, but I would like to happily point out that the one self-appointed warrior lost his job for protesting at chick-fil-a

Anybody can sign up to write for the Examiner. It's one small step above a blog platform.

So yeah don't treat it as a reliable source any more than you would joeblow.wordpress.com, but it's not an UFO/Christian loonies website either.

its not that I care so much about cracked or anything, it just seems that slowly but surely every single website I go to is becoming more and more pozzed up by SJWs, either internally or being forced by outside forces to self-censor in order to not suffer their wrath.

I know this is old but this stuff makes me legit worried that I could be on the wrong side of this whole thing.   :bernanke:

PC did this in the early nineties, which is what led to the backlash that created SA, Ebaums, the chans and so on. It's cyclical.

:lolno:

Rrail's slippery slope to pozzdom:

Began as a staunch conservative, but started to listen more and more to liberals until he became one himself, and is now wondering if he should go SJW because he 'doesn't want to be on the wrong side of things'. Move out of Seattle before it's too late. At this rate you'll have lopped your cock off in less than two years.


PS that's also why it's great to have faith and ideals: you don't end up taking in the whims of society because it's the "right thing to do". Your attitude is why we ended up with prohibition and forced eugenics in the 1920s.

How many people do you think just jumped on the forced eugenics train because "We're now in an era of science!" and they feared being on the wrong side of history for believing that no, you shouldn't forcibly sterilize retards and other undesirables?

The whims of the populace is the worst fucking reason to ever adopt an idea/philosophy.

Actually to go further and show you how SJWs just suck the fun out of comedy, just look at this review from the AV club on a recent episode of Brooklyn 9-9. This is how the reviewer opened his critique.

Quote
Looking at the title of this episode and considering where Brooklyn Nine-Nine is set, I figured “Sal’s Pizza” would be a nod to Do the Right Thing.

... I’m not asking for a frank discussion of race relations in Brooklyn or a parody of Do the Right Thing (that wouldn’t have played well); it’s just strange to include iconography so heavily associated with the setting involved and not give a nod to it at all. It’s not a knock on the episode, but it pervaded my thoughts throughout.
I'm not asking you to bring up a serious race discussion in a comedy BUT WHY DIDN'T YOU? :madgoon:

And that's how he ends it:
Quote
I wasn’t happy about the prospect of comedy derived from women’s cattiness, but Diaz’s short moment of sentimentality, that women in male-dominated fields need to stick together, worked without feeling heavy-handed or cheesy. Unlike Santiago, it didn’t overstep its moment.

Nevermind that the whole episode was built around the competitive and destructive behavior of men toward each others in the name of rivalry, the fact that the show spent 2 minutes of women showing the same type of behavior is "problematic" because Heaven forbid we ever depict two women acting like women actually do in real life.


Are those the people you want to side with, Rrail? People who are so obsessed with social justice that even when watching a silly comedy, the first thing you do his bring up race, and end by bringing up feminism.

We've been calling them Social Justice Warriors, but it might be time for a more fitting name: The New Puritans.

So some guy on Reddit made this chart.

I was curious and figured I'd look at the Cracked.com Alexis rankings (basically the viewership) during and immediately after three of their more radical articles. The reception is akin to a battery acid enema.



Not a big surprise.  If someone wanted to read preachy, whiny SJ bullshit, they'd go to Jezebel, not Cracked.

I can't stand reading John Cheese (what kind of nickname is that anyway?) articles. I can't figure out why because as a whole his articles try to be uplifting or whatever but it's just the way he writes that makes me want to punch his lights out. I mean has he ever written an article that WASN'T him bitching about what a fuck up he was in his early life?

So your father was an alcoholic whoop-de-fucking-do but you really don't need to write a 1000 articles about the same shit till the end of time.

yeah I'm glad to see the general cracked readership reacted the same way I did (fuck that shit, gonna go read something else then)

Maybe it'll teach them to stop posting faggot articles again. I bet they had a huuuuge drop after that " :madgoon: sexist problems in videogames" article. Their most commented upon article, and basically 90% are shitting on cracked for it.

Yeah, their use of "insane" is problematic, bordering on toxic.

I don't wanna read preachy shit from any side. Feminism, Anti-Feminism, Religion vs Atheism, Conservative vs. Liberal, etc.

I don't wanna read your totally wacky list of top ten reasons of why people who don't buy into your biased bullshit are stupid. I wanna read about historical badasses, or things I never knew about my favourite authors. At least create a separate article collection for people who are so insufferable about their personal beliefs that they cannot separate from them for even a moment to read a throwaway article about "ten presidents you didn't know had heroin addictions". No one wants to read anyone else's preachy bullshit as an excuse for comedy.

I've got "CIS SCUM" tattoed onto the insides of my eyelids.  It's really helped me to appreicate the plight of oppressed trannies playing a videogame with a male protagonist.

The 'ways we are trained to hate women' article didn't even seem 'radical' as much as 'David Wong trying really hard to pull some progressive nonsense out of his ass so people won't think he's too much of a rethuglikkkan bigot'. The entire article was ridiculously out-of-character given his stated worldviews in other articles (for one it was full of cartoonish stereotyping and over-simplification of complex issues, things he always complains about in every other piece of writing he's posted).

It bit him in the ass because the article also had a weird air of "it's not my fault I have issues with women that make me do these dumb sexist things, it's the fault of my male biology and society".

His ego is probably too large for him to admit the article was dumb, but I doubt he'll do it again.

He's seen some shit.

I just discovered Cracked has a tumblr (oh god) and they've quoted Winston Rowntree, the unbearable wall of text faggot who made one of the more retarded sexism articles on there.

http://cracked.tumblr.com/post/67978888110/sexism-is-everyones-problem-but-many-continue-to

The article in question is so awful it's beyond words.  Sadly, the top rated comments seem to mostly be in support of this shit, so the pozzed level is growing.

Well, Cracked having a Tumblr is pretty damning.

Plus I wouldn't say "women are outraged."  These losers seem to think that Tumblr feminists are an accurate cross section of women in general.

$10 on Winston having some skeletons in his closet.
