The Star Wars Franchise May Be About To Get Some Heavy Competition

When folks think about competition to the Star Wars franchise in terms of competing for fan dollars spent on feature films and merchandise, one generally thinks either of Star Trek, or that there isn’t any real competition at all.  But a dark horse competitor may be on the horizon.

Farscape.

farscape

Farscape has real potential to surpass and usurp Star Wars.

Previously, World Fusion Wisdom cited criteria that potentially pointed to a Farscape continuation/revival coming soon in one form or another.  Back in March of 2018, WFW commented:

In 2014, Farscape fans were thrilled to hear Rockne O’Bannon confirm that he was working on a script for the next Farscape film and that Brian Henson would direct, and also on board was Justin Monjo, who wrote 14 Farscape episodes including, I feel, some of the best, and produced 36 others.

A few months later, Gigi Edgley, said that when she was working with Brian Henson on Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge Henson showed her an envelope telling her it was the working Farscape film script. Ben Browder, Claudia Black, and Wayne Pygram all weighed in that they would love to do more Farscape.

In January 2018, Boom! Comics released, under their Archaia label, the Farscape Omnibus, Volume 1, which combines the first four Farscape books and the D’Argo books. Volume 2 is scheduled for a December 2018 release (even though the original single-issue and compendiums have been out for years). Boom!-Archaia also published several Dark Crystal books and will in 2018, alongside the Farscape releases is launching a new Dark Crystal book series (to coincide with Brian Henson’s upcoming Dark Crystal TV series) and a new Labyrinth books series (to coincide with Brian Henson’s upcoming new Labyrinth film) which makes one wonder about an upcoming Farscape film.

Then out of nowhere on 8th of March 2018 an interview with Rockne O’Bannon appeared: “Farscape 15 Years Later.” Despite it appearing on the Medium platform, it was from The Paley Center for Media, so this wasn’t a fan site but a respectable and connected expert on media. O’Bannon confirms the Farscape film project is is still alive and he and Brian Henson are still working on the script. He says Henson is busy directing a movie (which I take to be The Happytime Murders mentioned earlier and finally completing post-production recently, confirming that Henson has been the hold up), but that they hope to get up and running sometime “next year.” The timing of things caught my eye. The article mentions the interview took place “late 2017,” which means the Paley Center held it back from publication for as much as six months.

SYFYWIRE’s recent article comes two weeks after the Paley Center published its held back interview with O’Bannon. Also, you can see there has been a noticeable uptick on stories on SYFYWIRE about Farscape. That’s six stories dedicated to Farscape (and mentioned in two others) in the past eight months–three in the past month–after zero dedicated stories and five mentions in four years. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. I think they are deliberately building a buzz for the coming Farscape film. The SYFYWIRE connection is significant because they published “Why Farscape Still Matters” a month before O’Bannon announced the script was in development in 2014. Both events came around the 15th anniversary of the beginning of Farscape’s regular run, just as we are now seeing events around 15th anniversary of its end.

Speaking of timing: there was this surprising homage to Farscape from, of all people, Arby’s. People are paying attention, Brian Henson.

The blog post was updated in August 2018.

No real new information in this 24 August 2018 article (a site with twice more ads than content so I will summarize) but a confirmation that more Farscape is coming in “Brian Henson on What’s Holding up the Return of Farscape.” Henson says, in comments at a fan convention, that the hold up is entirely the fault of the creators not yet able to get it “quite right still.” That would mean that Henson, O’Bannon, and whoever else is involved at this point are either having creative differences or having difficulty with how the revival will actually work.

“The fan interest has been huge, but it’s a little harder to sell. BUT- I’ve been trying to make it as a movie for a long time, and everybody is tired–okay, I’m tired–of hearing me say that I really want to make a feature film of Farscape. I’m just coming off of making this movie [The Happytime Murders], and it really took all of my attention for 16 months. I’m reconsidering that, and it may be that the movie length is too short to tell the story. So that might mean, I may consider doing something on TV instead. Sort of exactly like what we’re doing in London right now with Dark Crystal. So there is the potential of doing something like that with Farscape. Honestly? I’m still very enthusiastic about Farscape, and I have been trying to make it into a movie, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to succeed.”

But more proof that Henson is ramping up for the return of Farscape is that his company launched a Farscape YouTube channel 23 August 2018.

The new Farscape YouTube channel can be found here.

Now, representatives from both productions will publicly downplay any notions of a competition between the two franchises.  They’ll say that there’s enough room for people to be fans of both franchises and other diplomatic hooey.

But while fans may indeed like both franchises, fans do not have unlimited incomes.  If they have to make a choice between purchasing a Star Wars action figure or a Farscape action figure, it’ll be interesting to see what choice they make.

Currently, Disney only owns the Henson Company’s created Muppets.  The rest of the Henson’s Company creations including the Dark Crystal and Labyrinth now belong to the Henson family.  So there may be hope that Farscape can escape the clutches of the SJW dimwits under Disney, though thoughtful people should warn Farscape fans of a potential Geeker Gate anyway, and pass along the URL to the phases to them.

Lucasfilm Adds Fuel To The #BoycottEpisodeIX Fire

The Hollywood Reporter has published a story indicating that Kathleen Kennedy will be sticking around for 3 long years.

KK

Like a turd that just won’t flush down.

The lead producer and architect of the Star Wars franchise has renewed her contract to remain president of Lucasfilm for another three years, through 2021, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The move is a vote of confidence in Kennedy, who took command of Lucasfilm after Disney’s $4 billion acquisition from George Lucas in 2012 and has overseen the relaunch of Star Wars, one of the most revered movie properties in cinematic history. 

Sources say that the near future of Star Wars lies in television with Kennedy-led Lucasfilm planning on expanding the universe with new characters in that medium.

Now we know why Bob Iger was falling on his sword, and taking the blame for Kathleen Kennedy’s failings about a week ago.  He was clearing the air and preparing the way for this announcement.

This is why I was willing to consider the perspective of Matthew Kadish.  John Talks recently had similar misgivings.

This is why I didn’t implicitly trust statements of those who claimed to have inside sources as totally accurate information.  Inside source doesn’t automatically translate into accuracy.  This is why I don’t cite those who say, “I have an inside source, but I can’t divulge what they’re telling me” which is really a non-comment anyway.

What bothers me most about all of this, is the fact that we already had the information that should have made everyone skeptical of inside sources.

A thread at milleniumfalcon.com from 2015, detailed a history of Jason Ward from MakingStarWars.net, and efforts to feed false spoilers from Star Wars productions to rival websites including Star Wars News Net  in an effort to discredit them.  Everyone is super busy and time is at a premium for everyone, but that thread was posted publicly on Twitter and available to all.

Spoilers

Now, I’m not saying that Jason Ward or MakingStarWars.net is responsible for the insider information in this particular instance.  But Jason Ward is only one SJW.  There are thousands more out there who will use these same tactics if Mr. Ward doesn’t.  I strongly recommend that all inside sources be treated as highly suspect moving forward.

Regardless, any concerns about The Fandom Menace losing steam should be put to rest.  The goal of feeding false information about Kathleen Kennedy’s departure was to appease The Fandom Menace and get them to relax and quiet down.  They do this in politics too, when Democrats will release a poll to the media showing that the Republican candidate will win, in order to get Republicans to stay home on voting day, confident in the notion that their candidate will win.  Meantime, the Democrats get their base fired up and to the voting booth with the same poll.

But in this instance, the announcement of Kathleen Kennedy’s contract extension will inject new vitality into The Fandom Menace, propelling the boycott of Episode IX to potentially a far greater scope than the boycott for Solo.

As far as the general audience is concerned, most of this will go entirely unnoticed.  As I’ve stated previously, I believe that the bulk of the people staying home for Solo was the general audience rather than boycotters, due to the crappy nature of The Last Jedi.  There just wasn’t enough interest to bring them back for more.  And there will likely be even less interest to bring them back for Episode IX.

In any case, the biggest challenge that The Fandom Menace faces right now is keeping the fan infighting down to a bare minimum.

Here’s something else though for everyone to consider.

The news of Kathleen Kennedy’s contract extension was released on a late Friday afternoon.  In the political world, when you have to release a news story but want it to vanish quickly, you release it late Friday afternoon because that’s when the weekly news cycle ends.  Stories released on late Friday afternoon rarely carry over through the weekend.  When you want a news story to have real legs, you release it early Monday so that it sticks around throughout the entire weekly news cycle.

So why would Disney want news of Kathleen Kennedy’s contract extension to vanish quickly?

UPDATE:

Below are a variety of perspectives on this story:

Rachel Butera Driven Off Of Social Media By Shreiking SJW Activists

Bounding Into Comics is reporting that Rachel Butera has deleted her Twitter account due to harassment from SJW savages.  Yesterday Bounding Into Comics reported that SJW imbeciles were screeching for the firing of Rachel Butera who voices General Leia on the poorly received Star Wars: Resistance animated series, for doing an impression of purported sexual assault victim Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.  The very same SJW imbeciles who are currently screeching for the rehiring of James Gunn, who made multiple jokes about pedophilia publicly on Twitter.

Butera

Without a vagina, the Collective is no longer required to respect this wamon.

Did Rachel Butera or her agent or a Lucasfilm representative release any statement saying that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford deleted her account due to harassment?  No.  Like the Kelly Marie Tran Instagram incident, there is no evidence whatsoever that this is what happened as of this writing.  There’s also no concrete evidence that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford even remembers her high school years at all.  But I’m going to pretend that it’s all a fact anyway because I have a political agenda to advance.

Rachel Butera’s vagina may be repossessed by the Collective, as SJW drones have declared Ms. Butera officially stripped of her female sex.

As such, Ms. Butera will no longer enjoy the Collective’s special victim immunity that it bestows upon all of its perceived, marginalized classes.

Meanwhile, The Fandom Menace breathlessly awaits statements from Lucasfilm representatives Chuck WendigBryan YoungJJ AbramsGeekGirlDivaTimothy ZahnPaul S. KempGary WhittaChris WeitzPablo HidalgoRian Johnson, etc., on the matter.

The SJW Outrage Mob Comes For Lucasfilm

As of this writing, the forthcoming animated series Star Wars: Resistance is mostly famous for receiving far more “likes” on a George Lucas satire comment in the YouTube comments section for the first trailer in which he amusingly asks if he can buy Star Wars back, than the actual trailer itself received.  But it may be famous for something else now.

women

You must respect women, until you’re not supposed to.

Bounding Into Comics is reporting that SJW savages are now calling for the firing of Rachel Butera who voices General Leia on the show.  Apparently, Rachel Butera did an impression of Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who is now a public persona.  Rachel deleted the tweet undoubtedly in fear of what SJW mobs might do to her and her family, but it can still be seen via the following tweet from News This Second:

The hysterical outrage being voiced by rabid SJW animals is part of the larger movement in which they demand all accusers to be believed without regard to due process or any actual evidence, as is typically expected in civilized cultures.  But as anyone who has followed instances such as the Duke Rape Case or Mattress Girl knows, hate hoax prone SJW accusations should never ever be believed without concrete evidence, particularly in the modern era in which universities are now teaching toxic masculinity as part of their official curricula.

giphy

SJW culture.

Any reasonable person with a living historical memory, must be asking themselves where all these SJW savages were when Juanita Broaddrick accused Democratic President Bill Clinton of rape. Juanita Broaddrick was wondering too, as she showed up at the SJW freak show.  But I digress.

Nevermind that Ms. Ford’s 4th purported witness claimed no knowledge of any assault, nevermind that Ms. Ford has changed her story multiple times, nevermind that discrepancies in Ms. Ford’s polygraph test has raised some questions,  nevermind that two other men claim to have assaulted Ms. Ford rather than Kavanaugh, nevermind that Ms. Ford’s high school yearbook demonstrates “multiple photos and references to binge drinking and the accompanying joy of not being able to remember any of it,” nevermind all of that.  Ms. Ford is to be believed because she is a valuable tool to the Collective and their political agenda, just as Ms. Broaddrick was to be discredited because her account worked against the Collective.

And so, Rachel Butera must pay for her mockery of Ms. Ford’s voice, because it also works against the Collective.

It will be interesting to see if other Lucasfilm personalities such as Chuck Wendig, Bryan Young, JJ Abrams, GeekGirlDiva, Timothy Zahn, Paul S. Kemp, Gary Whitta, Chris Weitz, Pablo HidalgoRian Johnson, etc., will also call for Rachel Butera’s firing and/or resignation, and what effect that will have on the poorly received Star Wars: Resistance production.  Surely they must have some opinion on Rachel Butera.

Should Ms. Butera break free from the Lucasfilm collective, perhaps she could be hired by Ethan Van Sciver to voice a character in an inevitable CyberFrog animated series.  That might implode just about every SJW head on the planet.

Episode IX: Sexual Goulash

Progressive dimwits who insist on the existence of 63 genders have abandoned any pretense of adherence to scientific fact, in which only the X and Y chromosomes exist. The scientific reality is that until a 3rd chromosome is discovered only two genders exist, eunuchs and hermaphrodites notwithstanding.  This of course is heresy among the SJW ignorati.

Klinger

“It’s not a lie, if you believe it.” ~George Costanza

Nevertheless, SJW regulations demand belief of non-existent genders in all of its drones.  So you can imagine the uproar from the Collective when it was discovered that Rian Johnson liked a purportedly “transphobic” Twitter post:

TP

When the accusation started making the rounds on the interwebs, Rian Johnson quickly groveled for forgiveness:

Yes, Rian Johnson swears to god.

But what’s actually happening here is that Rian Johnson didn’t bother to read the Twitter post.  Rather, he merely saw a collection of approved buzzwords, and therefore liked the tweet in a Pavlovian manner.  Thumb slip indeed.  Ha!

But when we examine FeministRoar’s word salad carefully, it becomes evident that she’s not supporting the notion of binary gender at all.  In fact she reasons that such classifications only perpetuate “sex stereotypes,” and the made-up nonsense word “heteronormativity.”  So she is actually rejecting the concept of gender classifications (gender identity) altogether, in an attempt to make gender more fluid than fluid.  This would abolish the known 63 genders in SJW mythology, and allow each person to create their own special gender unto themselves, leading to approximately 7.4 billion genders.  So Rian may want to consider refaving.

Is Rian Johnson dumb?  Without question.  Were Rian to actually read that tweet, he would know that confessing his sins was unnecessary, though the Collective may still require penance from him for PR purposes anyway.

Regardless, Episode IX may have to over-correct for Rian’s perceived transgression.

A drone from the Collective recently tweeted a demand for an apology, for not delivering on Jon Kasdan and Donald Glover’s proclamation of Lando Calrissian’s pansexuality:

To which co-writer of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Jon Kasdan, replied:

Could “not in some vague distant future but very soon” be referring to Episode IX?  The very next Star Wars film to be released?

If so, this opens up all manner of wonderful speculative questions for fans and shippers alike.

1

Episode IX may return to lightsaber battles.

Will Finn hook up with Poe?  Will Rey hook up with Rose Tico?  Will the aged Lando be as pre-occupied with his own genitalia as Daniel Jose Older writes the younger version to be?  Will the elder Lando hook up with either Poe, Finn, or both?  Or will the elder Lando oversee a five-way polyamorous free-for-all, with a few droids peppered in for extra added diversity?  Will the Force bind all of them together?  Will Tatooine’s moisture vaporators serve as the primary villains?

One must also ponder the coming need of writers to appropriate the “space herpes” concept from Ice Pirates.  Perhaps the production could make great civil rights strides by depicting the first female space herpe.

200w

Finn had better wear a condom.

Only one thing is for sure; the fundamental transformation in the hereditary traits of Star Wars will have the franchise resembling Flesh Gordon far more than Flash Gordon when all is said and done.

#GenCon Promotes Physical Violence Against Its Normal Attendees

An unhinged SJW savage threw the first punch at normal people back in August, when uneducated imbecile Matt Loter, also known as the Prettiest Matt and owner of Elm City Games in New Haven, Connecticut, assaulted Jeremy of TheQuartering because he didn’t like words that Jeremy spoke.

HamblyLoterPunchNazis

Matt Loter wouldn’t know what a genuine Nazi was, even if one had punched him in his empty progressive head 75 years ago.

If you recall, the GenCon Twitter account was blocking people who were asking for information on Jeremy’s attacker at the time.

GenCon was also outright banning people from their livestream for asking them for comments on the assault.

You can read the rest of the backstory to this incident here.

While a police investigation and subsequent charges have been sluggish, Mr. Hambly has employed attorneys to pursue the matter.

But now comes word that GenCon has seen fit to ban the victim of this assualt, Jeremy Hambly.

It is now apparent that we can no longer expect uneducated SJW savages to control their own behavior whenever they hear or read words that they don’t like.  SJWs will excuse their own violent misbehavior by babbling something barely intelligible about Nazis; a topic which they know nothing about whatsoever.  But in reality it’s just dumb SJW animals who want to punch people, and who are attempting to manufacture a mythology whereby they’re the hero for doing so.  Nothing is more monumentally stupid and transparent than the SJW mentality.

For this reason, normal people will no longer be safe at GenCon, since this effectively means that GenCon is actively promoting more SJW violence of this nature through their banning of the victim from their convention.  Every normal person should spread this word as far and as wide as they possibly can, to steer clear of GenCon, just as you would any other violence prone area of town.

If SJWs have an individual who is willing to fall on their sword and take a banning from GenCon in service of their smelly struggle, all they have to do is assault a loud critic and the critic will be banned as well.  So not only is GenCon promoting physical violence, but also silencing critics at the same time.  It’s chilling.

But don’t be too surprised if Matt Loter is a guest of honor at some future GenCon.

Clearly it’s time for GenCon to go out of business altogether.  And they will.  “Get woke, go broke,” as the saying goes.  It’s as inevitable as the rising Sun.

This of course will embolden SJWs, and make my previous prediction of violence at Star Wars Celebration far more likely, as they stupidly seek out imaginary Nazis to punch.

Feel free to head on over to GenCon’s Twitter page and let them know what you think about this absurd decision.  But be forewarned; they don’t want to hear about it:

The Phases Of A Geeker Gate 3rd Edition – Plus Countermeasures

First we must thank Jeff from World Class Bullshitters for coming up with the initial idea for someone to map this out, when Ethan Van Sciver mentioned that all of the “Gates” had a similar pattern.

Since publishing my initial blog post which outlined The Phases of a Geeker Gate, I’ve received feedback and criticism from Ethan Van Sciver, Veeh, World Class Bullshitters, various commenters on this blog, and others.  So I’m going to update these Phases one more time, taking into account that feedback and criticism, and adding a few additional thoughts of my own.

This will always be a work in progress, as SJW tactics shift and change over time.  So it’s going to be up to fandom to take this information which I’ve based on my own experience and research, and feedback from others, and keep it updated.

My primary interest is in film and television. So others that are more deeply involved in comics, novelizations, video games, board games, role playing games, card games, etc., may have additional insight.  Getting the input of an avid war gamer will be particularly helpful in developing effective counter measure strategies in order to effectively push back the SJW hordes.

In this outline, IP stands for Intellectual Property, and is meant to be a general term to encompass many different types of franchises and industries.

You can read the 1st draft of the Geeker Gate here, and the 2nd draft here.

sjw-murder-protest-triggered

Your local college is producing these uneducated savages.

THE PHASES OF A GEEKER GATE

1. SJW CRITICISM – A popular IP is criticized by SJWs for being racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, and a smattering of other things.  This will often manifest in media articles and academic papers which push this false narrative.  This phase can take place over the course of years, or even decades.

2. IP IS ABOUT TO UNDERGO REBOOT – or reimagining, or remake, or whatever term is fashionable at the time.  The rebooted production will tout “firsts,” first female, first person of color, first LGBTQ+, etc., even if the IP has already had them before.  They do this to contrast their new version as far more virtuous and progressive than the previous version, which they spent years or decades labeling as racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, etc.

3. THE BARNACLING – SJWs barnacle themselves to the IP within the production, and start transforming the IP from its original form.  SJWs sometimes refer to this strategy as entryism.  Production staff make claims that long time customers will stay with the IP no matter what the changes are.  SJWs outside of the production barnacle themselves to the customer base, and start lecturing long time customers.  Shill media SJWs write articles pontificating about how diversity is good business and touting diversity “firsts,” without regard to the fact that the IP may have already been diverse for years or decades.

4. CUSTOMER CRITICISM – Long time customers of the IP voice legitimate criticism of the new direction.

5. SJW RESPONSE TO CUSTOMER CRITICISM – A large customer backlash is created when SJWs both inside of the production, and outside of it in the customer base and shill media, falsely accuse critics of being racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, etc., usually to protect a criticized political message being pushed by the newly transformed IP that the customer base is criticizing.  SJWs will also attempt to stigmatize use of the term “SJW” as a pejorative, so that you’re unable to identify the problem and articulate points.  SJWs will completely ignore female, people of color, and LGBTQ+ critics, and/or marginalize their voices.

6. DISMISSING AND IGNORING THE BACKLASH – Shill media publishes pieces declaring that the backlash doesn’t exist.  Shill media also publishes pieces instructing others to ignore the “tiny vocal minority,” some of whom used to be the old “gatekeepers” of the community.

7. SUPPRESSING THE BACKLASH – Blogs, internet forums, social media, and other websites delete or otherwise “redact” critical comments and posts in discussion forums under the aegis of “hate speech,” and may even engage in the complete banning of accounts.  Some websites remove their comments sections altogether.

8. BACKLASH INTENSIFIES – As an inevitable side effect of suppression the Streisand Effect takes hold, as customers seek out other venues to express their criticism, and some publish their own, growing the backlash exponentially.

9. HATE HOAXES, FALSE FLAGS & CLONED ACCOUNTS – The rank and file SJW activists in the customer base get heavily involved in shouting down critics, and creating hate hoaxes and false flags in an effort to discredit those critics.  Such efforts are also intended to be picked up by shill media outlets, which will then report on them to further mischaracterize the critical customers.  SJWs will create cloned social media and discussion forum accounts that mimic known critical voices, in an attempt to discredit them and/or divert payments/donations for products or causes away from the critical customer.  SJWs will often operate hidden forums where these tactics are organized.

10. ESCALATION OF ATTACKS – SJWs will report posts as spam or a violation of rules, and attempt to get social media accounts suspended, and posts deleted.  SJWs will start to send out false press releases to rival websites in an effort to discredit their critical competitors.  SJWs will begin to search through public records such as child support or foreclosures in an effort to embarrass loud voices, a practice known as doxing.  SJWs will send out phishing attempts in an effort to gain personal information.  SJWs may attempt to contact the workplaces of loud voices, in an attempt to punish critical customers financially for speaking out.  SJWs may attack normal people with physical violence.

11. IP FAILURES – The IP starts to falter as customers start to drift away and sales begin to plummet.  This is either due to a drop in quality of the IP, or the poor treatment of the customers, or a combination of both.

12. THE DAMSEL IN DISTRESS – A female member of the production (it could also be a member of the LGBTQ+ community) is granted victim status over a fishy event in order to deflect from the failures of the IP, and shame critical customers into silence.  The damsel in distress is used as a political pawn both by the SJWs inside the IP, and the SJWs outside of the IP in the customer base and shill media.  If the first Damsel In Distress doesn’t quite work, another one will come.

13. DESPERATE PLEAS FOR COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT – “White Knights” in the shill media call for creative authorities to smack down the backlash, and restore control of the narrative in response to The Damsel In Distress event.  Shill media publishes multiple articles with the same talking points and catchphrases such as “toxic fan base” or “bad faith” in an effort to mischaracterize the customer base.  Major news outlets report on the story, and quote those “think” pieces as authoritative.

14. ANSWERING THE CALL – Celebrity and creative cast & crew SJWs inside of the IP answer the shill media’s call, and make public statements admonishing critical customers, typically over false accusations.  Critical customers will respond to the admonishments, and SJWs will call that response “abuse” and/or “harassment,” sometimes alluding to the notion that “creatives” deserve special consideration.  Remember, what SJWs call “abuse” and/or “harassment” when customers do it, they call “activism” when they do it.

15. THE FINAL PUSH – Shill media entities, and rank and file SJWs tell long time customers to go find something else if they don’t like it anymore, in a last ditch effort to push critics out of the “community” once and for all.  “Don’t like it, don’t buy it.”

16. IP BLEEDING – The IP starts to hemorrhage money, as long time customers begin to abandon the IP in droves.

17. CUSTOMER BASE OBLITERATION – The customer base is utterly destroyed, leaving behind only the small handful of SJWs who don’t make any purchases.

18. THE END – The new incarnation of the IP comes to an end. Since the majority of the customer base has abandoned it, there’s no more controversy or discussion about it. It’s over. The best case scenario is that the original IP is largely forgotten with the exception of a few die-hards who still carry the torch. The worst case scenario is that the new incarnation of the IP overwrites the original, and the original IP is forgotten altogether and overshadowed by the new incarnation in all future shill media mentions.

19. MIGRATION – The SJW is primarily interested in popular IPs that have a large audience, which can serve as a vehicle to spread their political message as widely as possible.  Therefore, the remaining SJWs jump ship from the decimated IP, to devour a new IP that is popular and undergoing a transitional phase that they can barnacle themselves to through entryism.

20. REBIRTH – The process begins again, in the newly targeted IP.  If normal creators have jumped ship from the targeted IP and start fresh in their own endeavors, SJWs will chase them down on the internet and in real life, to endlessly harass them in an effort to destroy their ability to make that new effort a success.  The new effort will be maligned with the help of the SJW legacy media.

Sometimes these phases might be skipped, sometimes they may happen in a slightly different sequence.

Now, this isn’t just happening in geek IPs.  It’s happening in every cultural institution in America, and it’s known as “The Long March Through The Culture.”  So the Geeker Gate serves as a microcosm of what is happening in the much larger scale cultural civil war.  To  understand the foundational and historical basis for Geeker Gates, read this blog post here.

When SJWs start calling  you a Nazi, remind them that it is them who more closely resemble that failed political ideology.  You can read more about the Nazi’s genuine history here.  When they try to connect you with the Ku Klux Klan, remind them of the Klan’s history, which you can read about here.  When they start screeching about representation, tell them the narcissistic basis of needing representation, which you can read more about here.

Understanding SJW behavioral patterns in the Phases of a Geeker Gate, allows us to use that knowledge to develop countermeasures.


 

COUNTERMEASURES

Some have suggested that there are Crisis Management Firms who orchestrate these events.  If that is the case, then the fact of the matter is that they’re likely using critical customers to perpetuate controversy and generate artificial buzz over the IP, since the material itself just isn’t good enough to do that on its own.  In which case there’s really only one real countermeasure available to us; to simply walk away and cease all purchasing of any products or services related to the IP immediately upon getting the very first whiff of SJW politics before any of this even starts, and to not comment on any of it at all.  Offer them total and utter silence on the matter.  Just walk away.

That’s a monumental task.  Particularly with large customer bases that have people of varying perspectives.  And frankly nearly impossible, given that most people have some natural fight in them.  So I offer the following countermeasures for consideration.  Again, it will be up to fandom to continue to update and develop these countermeasures.

Please keep in mind that these countermeasures are as of yet untested, and will need further refinement.

Here they are in no particular order:

1. OFFER ALTERNATIVES – During Phase 1 before the rebooting begins, when SJWs come sniffing around looking for gender and race issues, kindly suggest to them that the IP is not for them.  Nicely offer alternative IPs that might be more to their liking, and even suggest that they might be talented enough to create their very own IP in their own SJW image.  Honey works better than vinegar here.

2. CONTACTING THE IP MANAGEMENT– This is challenging, because SJWs are political activists and propagandists rather than genuine artists or entrepreneurs.  Their primary concern of pushing a political message will always outweigh their desire for profit; a word that they often spit out as a pejorative.  They see themselves as cultural managers or stewards, rather than blue collar workers producing a widget, or managers operating a business.  So this will have limited effect once they take hold inside of an IP, but anything is worth a shot.  As soon as the rebooting production begins, contact CEOs and other management and let them know that you will walk away from the IP if SJW politics are pushed, and that you’ll encourage others to do the same.

3. CONTACTING SHAREHOLDERS – This is more powerful than contacting anyone inside of the IP.  The shareholders are motivated by profit because of their investment; they expect a return  They are the ones with real power.  It’s best to contact them when the rebooting process begins, to let them know you will walk away if SJW politics appear.

4. SEND SHAREHOLDERS THE PHASES – Very early on, send all the shareholders copies of The Phases of the Geeker Gate, so that they can watch it happen in real time as it occurs.  This may help to create a sense of urgency in them.

5. CONTACTING MERCHANDISING MANAGEMENT – After SJW politics make an appearance, contact the management and CEOs of toy companies, book publishers, T-Shirt manufacturers, and any other merchants connected with the IP.  Let them know that you’re walking away from the IP and their products because of the SJW politics being pushed, and that you’ll encourage others to do the same.

6. CONTACT ADVERTISERS – If there are any advertisers connected with the IP in any way, you can start a list of them and contact them, perhaps even going so far as to suggest a boycott of their products if they don’t withdraw advertising from the IP.

7. BOYCOTT – As soon as possible.  Withhold your purchasing power from all films, toys, t-shirts, comics, novels, merchandise of any kind the very first moment that SJW politics appear. Do not give television or streaming shows any ratings.  Encourage others to do the same, and inform the shareholders that you are doing this.  If you really have to satisfy your craving for material related to the IP, purchase vintage material from eBay that was produced before the rebooting.

8. BUYCOTT – The opposite of a boycott.  Purchase products and services from any personalities or entities who support your side, and encourage others to do the same.  Advertise the fact that you’re using the money you’re saving from the boycott, to fund the parties who understand and support your criticisms.

9. DO NOT TOLERATE SUPPRESSION – Don’t tolerate months of having your posts deleted or being banned in online forums or elsewhere.  They’ll do their very best to convince you that you’re the “bad actor.”  Don’t believe them.  Begin publishing your perspective on your own immediately upon experiencing the very first instance of suppression, in whatever media format you favor.

10. ENCOURAGE LEAKS – If there is a civil cultural war going on within the IP as well, then encourage those on your side who are inside the IP to leak information.

11. CREATE CONFLICT WITHIN THE IP – They’re going to do everything they can to get customers to fight amongst themselves.  Return the favor.  Pit celebrities and creatives against one another with their own public statements as often as possible.  Celebrity A said something bad about celebrity B?  Make sure celebrity B knows about it.

12. MONETIZE SJWs – Produce T-Shirts and mugs that mock, satirize, and/or lampoon commonly parroted SJW memes, buzzwords, and catchphrases.  Earn a profit while doing so.

11. LAND, SEA & AIR – Customers have to fight this in all media forms; video on YouTube, audio podcasts, text on blogs and websites.

13. KEEP AN ARCHIVE – Understand, one reason that SJWs get away with much of this is that they constantly revise history.  So someone has to archive events as they happen, along with accompanying investigations when they happen, and be ready to present those things when an attempt at revisionism occurs.  It’s the very best way to discredit false narratives.

14. PRE-EMPT IP FAILURE NARRATIVES – Go on the offensive. During the rebooting production of Phase 2, if you have Q & A sessions or are conducting an interview of any kind, immediately ask the production staff or creatives if they plane to accuse the customer base of racism and misogyny, if the customer base criticizes the direction of newly rebooted production.

15. AVOID CUSTOMER INFIGHTING – Oftentimes SJWs will do their best to get critical customers to fight with one another.  Avoid falling into this trap.

16. IGNORE PROFESSIONAL UBER FANS – Some of these entities rely on the IP for a portion of their income, so they’re motivated to keep it afloat, and mischaracterize critics.  The real fight is always between the customer and the IP.  Engaging with these professional fans on any level is a complete waste of time and effort, unless absolutely necessary.  Oftentimes these professional fans will see a decline in their viewership/readership, so they’ll try to pick a fight with a rising star in order to get that rising star to mention their name, so they can siphon off some views.

17. DISCREDIT SJW ACTIVISTS – Nearly everything SJWs claim is false.  All it takes is some time, and Googling to find that out.  The Wayback Machine is a useful tool as well, to view websites and blog posts that have been altered.  When hate hoaxes, false flags, and the Damsel In Distress appears, you’ve got to find the source of any claim, and clearly demonstrate that it’s unsourced, or a hate hoax/false flag, or posted by a cloned account, etc., with real supporting evidence.  Immediately and publicly disassociate from any hate hoaxes/false flags, and publish all evidence of the discrediting as soon as possible. Show the evidence.  Show the other side’s lack of evidence.  Spread it far and wide.

18. CHANGE THE CONVERSATION – When the shill media starts talking about the Damsel In Distress Event, ignore it until you have evidence to discredit it.  Instead, respond to these accusations with discussion of the misbehavior of accusatory creatives and production staff.  Show where that has happened with cited evidence.

19. READ OPPOSITION MATERIAL REGULARLY – It’s the very best way to improve and hone your arguments.  It’s also the best way to know what your opposition will say and do, before they say and do it.  Some people may block you, but you’ll have to get around that to find out what they’re up to.  Remember, all SJWs think in unison with a singular hive mind.  They are slaves to political fashion trends.  So predict commonly parroted arguments, and pre-compose responses with linked citations to sources ready to go.

20. SPREAD THE WORD – Publish and talk about these phases and countermeasures in any media format that you favor, to educate normal people about how all of this works and how to fight it.

21. BE WILLING TO CONSIDER ALTERNATIVE AND CONTRARY OPINIONS – This will help avoid fan infighting. It may not be what you want to hear.  You may even have evidence that it is incorrect.  But you have to be willing to consider multiple different opinions.  That doesn’t mean you have to like the opinion, trust the opinion, or believe the opinion.  Only that you’re willing to listen and mull it over.  General George S. Patton once said, “If everyone is thinking the same, then someone isn’t thinking.”

22. DO NOT HIRE SJWs – If you own the IP, you risk damage to your business when you hire SJWs.  Do not hire any of them under any circumstances.  If you have an employee that starts prattling on endlessly about race and gender, find a way to get rid of them immediately.

23. WHEN WINNING, STOP ENGAGING WITH THEM – Once it’s absolutely clear that you’re winning the fight, stop engaging with them.  Doing so only gives them relevancy and agency at this point.  There’s a popular paraphrasing of an old Napoleon quote that says, “Never interfere with an enemy when he’s in the process of destroying himself.”  There’s wisdom in that.

CAN A LOST IP EVER BE RECOVERED?

After the IP has lost its luster, after the customer base has abandoned the property, after the SJW locusts have moved on to a currently popular and successful IP, and all that is left is a desiccated husk that merely shadows the original IP, can it ever be recovered or rehabilitated?  Anything is possible, but I suspect that it’s very unlikely.  Once something gains the stench of SJW politics, normal people rarely want anything to do with it any more, except perhaps after an extended period of time.

But if you make the attempt, be prepared to be demonized by SJWs for that as well.

When neighborhoods are destroyed due to the high crime that SJW policies inevitably facilitate, normal people flee the neighborhoods.  After a time, the neighborhood becomes a ghost town.  SJWs like to refer to that as “white flight,” as a way to deflect from the fact that people of all colors and backgrounds are fleeing the SJW policies that destroy neighborhoods.  The neighborhood exists as nearly a ghost town for an extended period of time.  Then after a while, investors start to become interested in rehabilitating the neighborhood, since the majority of the crime has now also left due to no one being around to steal from or assault.  When these investors do come in and try to improve the neighborhood, that effort is demonized by SJWs as “gentrification.”

If an attempt is made to recover and revitalize a lost IP, I imagine SJWs will attempt to utilize some variation of the “gentrification” demonization, and you ought to be prepared for that.


 

Keep in mind that SJWs will attempt to write and publish their own version of the Geeker Gate.  But also keep in mind, that efforts to do so won’t be based on any actual research, but instead will be based on bizarre hyperbolic adjective usage, and their desire to insult the “alt-right.”  Their reluctance to read and do hard work gives you an advantage.

What also gives you an advantage is their inability to consider opinions other than their own.  They spend their time on social media blocking anyone who disagrees with them, and seeking out only those who reflect their own ideas back at them.  So they have no idea what or how other people think, and therefore can’t devise strategies to debate effectively, which is why they oftentimes have to resort to physical violence.


 

One last thought here.  I highly recommend that you read the account of the Battlestar Galactica fiasco from 15 years ago which I’ve summarized here.  It is a cautionary tale that warns fandom of the dangers of fan infighting, which SJWs are determined to provoke within every fan revolt.

Good luck.
