John Del Arroz was uninvited from BayCon because members of the Con committee didn’t like his politics and when this broke the SJW’s circled the wagons and proceeded to tell a series of lies to cover up this revelation. Now it seems the File 770 crowd feels the need double down on those lies and Jon calls them out.
Mike — what’s your beef? There is a huge problem with politics and hatred of anyone who doesn’t toe the SJW line across the semi-pro cesspools that are many local conventions. Did you not read my blog on Vox Popoli about the absolutely nutty level of programming that Baycon’s had in the past? Did you not read the screen shots of their programming director, Susie Rodriguez, admitting that this was 100% political, or in her words “speech based on ideology”? Did you not see their perennial guests– in which they invite for their own awards program dedicated, ironically, to good deeds– who called me names, tried to punish me outside the convention and dropped crazy swear words at me, which Baycon refused to disavow?[easyazon_image add_to_cart=”default” align=”right” asin=”1940154146″ cloaking=”default” height=”160″ localization=”default” locale=”US” nofollow=”default” new_window=”default” src=”https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51YXPA-29DL._SL160_.jpg” tag=”superversivesf-20″ width=”107″]Star Realms: Rescue Run[/easyazon_image]
I even have the con chair who has admitted the political elements of it in messenger to me. He attempted to reach out to resolve this when the bad press hit them, because it’s big egg on their face, but refused to go as far as publicly apologize for the lies directed at me on File 770 and the behavior by their very unprofessional guests who made this personal. The truth came out even then. We can chat about that for your retraction piece, Mike, whenever you like.
But that’s not why I’m here or even why I posted to begin with. I posted because I care about Baycon. It’s my home convention. I want it to thrive. It needs to change, and instead of looking at their own problems, they came after me through Mike Glyer.
Why do they feel the need to behave like this and poison everything they touch?
