Regarding the turmoil in the Scala community, with some super racists getting banned from a conference for their HBD views (human bio diversity, the super racist lingo that the mass murderer in El Paso mentioned in his manifesto (allegedly Patrick Crusius)) tangled_girl asks the question I myself often wonder:

genuine question: if speaking up your mind so far has cost you your friends, your employer, your professional reputation, the regard of your colleagues, your local support network, and even the gratitude of your personal hero whom you’ve raised tens of thousands of dollars for—-

have you considered to, like, not have shitty views? like… maybe you’re right, and every single person who has interacted with you is a brainwashed sjw moron who can’t tell right or wrong . . . or maybe, simply, you’re the one who’s wrong?

To which one of the people at the center of the controversy responds:

You don’t even know what my views are, so I would think such personal attacks would be frowned upon by the moderators here.

To which tangled_girl follows up:

See, you’re defensive. But the fact that I don’t know your views only serves to reinforce my point not diminish it.

Your mind is like a monad – I can’t see inside, but I can see the effect it has on its environment. And the effect is that you have been socially ostracised by your entire peer network. Your friends, your colleagues, your heroes… all of whom are successful and intelligent people. All of whom decided they want nothing to do with you.

Yes, I don’t know your views, but neither do I need to. It’s enough for me to know that those who do know your views… clearly find them abhorrent.

So I ask again: have you at all in any point in your internal narrative… considered that you are the one who is wrong?

They belong to a dark religion of hate. They have the loyalty of a religious convert. The willingness to lose it all:

Mark 10:29 29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life. 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

Matthew 10:34-39 34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law- 36 a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ 37 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

They have this dark faith, based on hate, their god is the white race. They will sacrifice everything for it.
