Message to all GamerGaters, some crap said about our opposition is wrong, it should stop

For the record, I'm pro-GamerGate, but there are some things said about anti-GamerGaters (or, as they prefer, those opposed to GamerGate) that are not true and need to not be repeated since, to date, there is no evidence WHATSOEVER to validate the claims.


Fine, he made a cryptic Tweet about "It's ends tonight" and later that day a bomb threat happened, but correlation does not equate causation. No one deserves to be accused of a crime without actual proof of their guilt, and there is nothing that anyone could bring before a court of law that would implicate him in such acts.

I don't agree with many things he says, but I won't smear his name with false charges, and neither should anyone else.


Seriously, NONE. Even Milo in that series of Breitbart exposes was never able to prove that, and despite all the stuff that Harper has been proven capable of doing, even I think it's horrifying to suggest a mother could sell her own child for drugs based on no other evidence than simply not liking them.

Also, let's give Randi Harper some credit, she had the honor and humanity to defend Mercedes Carerra against extremely disgusting sexist remarks despite being opposed to her ideologically, as you can see in the below GamerGhazi thread, and I personally thanked her because, despite my many reservations about Harper's intentions otherwise, that was an honorable act, she deserves your thanks.

Finally, this is just a general olive branch I'm handing to those opposed to GamerGaters. I do have a consicence, and regardless whatever ideology I believe in, I believe in honesty at the end of the day, so I will not defend blatant libel or slander like the BS I refuted above, and if GamerGate is serious about giving the slightest damn about "ethics", then no one needs to resort to character assassination and defamation that has not the slightest bit of truth to it.

We can disagree with people opposed to GamerGate based on the merits of their positions, but resorting to vile character assaults based on lies and baseless hearsay is just disgusting, and I personally refuse to engage in such, and hope no one, regardless of their ideology, does as well.

An open challenge to those opposed to GamerGate

For those who are convinced GamerGaters are evil incarnate, I pose a challenge to you, and since you all tend to be fond of civil rights advocacy, I shall frame it in those terms.

The Civil Right Movement of the 1960s advocated a strategy that would expose once and for all who the real bigots and hateful people were. Blacks would passively resist and ignore to the best of their ability all the hate slung their way, but they would not try to prevent it. Rather, they made a point of letting the other side spew as much bile and venom as loudly and as much as they wanted.

The point was simple: They wanted the world to know who was the evil ones by letting the world see what true hate looked like until the world's stomach turned and did something about it.

And it worked, with the last shreds of de jure segregation utterly discredited.

In regards to GamerGate, you see all of us as the real bigots, the hateful ones, the true source of evil. Fine, so be it.

However, why are you trying so hard to silence us? You want our alleged evil and venom to turn the world's stomach, don't respond it, don't attempt to silence us in the media, and don't attempt to paint a preconceived portrait of us for the world. Let our evil expose and defeat itself if we're so vile and hateful.

The only reason I can consider for why this strategy has not been attempted is because it can't be proven by our own actions, and thus all that has been said about GGers is a fabrication, but I'm a pro-GGer, so I'm obviously biased.

So my challenge is to try this. If we act like bigots, we've done the job of proving your point, you win. If not, then we aren't who you say we are. Either way, my challenge is to see whether your own convictions we need to be stopped can stand without telling the world how evil we are.

Assuming you all are right, we'll defeat ourselves.
