Chris Mancil, the current director of digital communications at EA, lost 2,500 Twitter followers in a single day after he retweeted a joke made by Millo Yiannopoulos:
Mr. Mancil’s Twitter followers unsubscribed and blocked him en masse with the help of an Anti-GG blockbot that is being employed by SJWs on Twitter. This blockbot was developed by Randi Harper following the initial outbreak of #GamerGate in August 2014. The blockbot scans Twitter to find anyone who retweets, follows or mentions certain prominent #GamerGate figures, such as Mr. Yiannopoulos:
The blockbot’s list is regularly updated with thousands of completely innocent Twitter accounts. Those accounts who happen to have a personal name and sufficient personal data attached to them are then harassed and shamed. Their employers are also notified in an attempt to get them fired and blacklisted from the industry. All of this is done via anonymous complaints which sometimes border on criminal, such as filing false rape or terrorism reports. The blockbot is currently also being used to create a blacklist of video game developers who support GamerGate.
Mr. Mancil went on to write a post at his blog Vested Interests about losing so many followers, comparing the entire situation of branding the “GamerGate infidels” with Hawthorne’s book The Scarlet Letter. However, notorious SJW “journalist” Ben Kuchera quickly found the post and used his extensive network of fellow SJWs to force Mr. Mancil to apologize. Mancil has also made Vested Interests private, preventing anyone from viewing the blog without an invitation from the man himself.
SJWs are fixated on censorship because it is essential to their ideology. They don’t simply oppose dissenting voices: they seek to silence neutral ones as well to keep more moderate SJWs from thinking for themselves. SJWs adhere to a radical Marxist view that reality is whatever the majority says it is, the facts be damned. Hence, SJWs must never allow the discussion to stray away from their tightly controlled agenda.
Mr. Mancil’s is also reminiscent of Orwell’s 1984 and the protocol which the Ministry of Truth used to create “unpersons.” If the blockbot wills it, you do not exist: in fact, you never existed. It’s clear that even the most innocuous expressions of dissent from the SJW line—such as re-Tweeting a remark made by a prominent gamergate figure, one that has nothing to do with gamergate—will make you an unperson to these latter-day thought police.
