The SJWs have done it again. Hispanic author and conservative thinker Jon Del Arroz politely bought a ticket to the popular event, Sci-Fi World Con, only to discover that he was banned for… wait for it… “planning on engendering a hostile environment.”
Yeah… you read that properly.
Jon Del Arroz won’t be going to the Worldcon science fiction convention, even though he is the leading Hispanic voice in science fiction and he bought a ticket. The multi-award nominated military science fiction author was banned publicly from the upcoming festivities in San Jose, California, without ceremony or explanation by Worldcon’s Incident Response Team. “At this time we are converting your membership to Worldcon76 to a supporting membership as you will not be permitted to attend the convention. On your personal blog you have made it clear that you are both expecting and planning on engendering a hostile environment which we do not allow. If you are found on the premises of the convention center or any of the official convention hotels you will be removed,” the organizers wrote.
After sending that private email message to Del Arroz, they publicly denounced him on Facebook, Twitter, and Worldcon’s main website. Del Arroz was not given a reason for the banning even though he sent several messages inquiring about the alleged “incident” that triggered it. “Worldcon 76 has chosen to reduce Jonathan Del Arroz’s membership from attending to supporting,” they wrote. “We have taken this step because he has made it clear that he fully intends to break our code of conduct. We take that seriously….racist and bullying behavior is not acceptable at our Worldcon.”
The “racist or bullying” behavior was not explained and no evidence that it occurred was presented. Worldcon refused to tell Del Arroz what they objected to on his site. PJ Media reached out to Worldcon and was told there would be “no further comment” on the banning. Further investigation shows that Del Arroz had contacted Worldcon organizers to ask for help several weeks ago with concerns that his safety as a conservative author at the convention was being threatened by other attendees.
In August, Del Arroz was in talks with Convention Chair Kevin Roche about renting a table to sell his books at the event. Roche did not mention any concern at the time about Del Arroz and did not seem hesitant to take his money. However, by November, Del Arroz had alerted Roche to threats to his safety after receiving targeted harassment against his family in his home (including receiving a spring-loaded package of glitter shaped like penises). Roche did not respond.
Del Arroz reported that the doxing and pranking began when members of the Science Fiction Writers of America found out he would be attending Worldcon. File 770, an industry publication like Gawker for nerds, had been roiling about Del Arroz and his doubleplusungood opinions back in December. After one debate, Del Arroz received these emails from a File 770 user.
Del Arroz believes that exchange kicked off a coordinated email and social media campaign to have him banned from Worldcon. This event mirrors Diversity and Comics creator Richard Meyer’s experience with SJWs at Comic-Con when industry professionals plotted to goad him into a violent altercation (for having the audacity to criticize Marvel and DC Comics artists and writers who refuse to leave their politics out of comics. That action launched Comicsgate, which has resulted in the firing of far left industry professionals and the cancelation of several books.
SciFiGate is clearly the next battle to explode in the culture wars. Much like the decisive defeat of SJWs at Marvel, Worldcon appears to be slitting its own wrists, determined to double down and risk potential legal liability by violating California’s public accommodation laws, preemptively banning a member of the public before he breaks any rules. Some have speculated that the banning is a result of Del Arroz planning to wear a body camera at the event. Del Arroz believes wearing a camera is the only reasonable action to take after Roche refused to respond to his concerns about safety.
“Worldcon refused to even acknowledge the very real threats to my person and family made by science fiction professionals and anonymous stalkers,” Del Arroz explained. “Based on that and what I saw with Diversity & Comics with the threats to frame him for a crime at a convention, I saw no other solution but to take precautions to have evidence in case someone attempted to harm or frame me similarly.”
SJWs love Hispanic authors for the delightful “diversity” they bring to the table. Just not when they’re males or conservative.
Think we live in a society where free speech reigns? Think again. It would certainly be nice if President Trump took more of an interest in how free speech on social media platforms in the United States has been damaged rather than caring about it for the Iranians. Because the more formalized events such as this are allowed to ban people for wrong think or the crime of just being a conservative, the more it becomes clear that we can have a conservative as president, but the world we live in is still dominated by liberal group think that seeks to choke everyone surrounding it as liberals reach for a last breath. Liberalism may be dying, but it seeks to take down as many as possible with it.
Jon Del Arroz should sue WorldCon organizers for this act. Just so the public can be made more aware that these kinds of actions do in fact happen, and often.
Traditional publishing is a cesspool of dengerates and low life people who seek to fill their books with lackluster stories, bloat female egos, and tackle the problem of “whiteness” on a consistent basis. Be an outlier like Del Arroz and go Indie or self publish. You don’t want to be a part of their club. It’s neither glamourous or the least bit satisfying. For you have to sell your soul to please SJWs. Then they’ll eat whatever remains.
