Thoughts on Pathetic Attacks by SJWs on the Legacy of HP Lovecraft

Over the past few years, a minority of pathetic and unaccomplished SJWs have been pushing the grift of “cancelling” people who might have said something which could be construed to even vaguely offensive. As many of you know, this bullshit “cancelling” has now created an increasingly nasty public backlash which will soon overwhelm and destroy these SJWs and their livelihoods. While I could write an entire series about the patheticness and hypocrisy of SJW idiots pushing this bullshit, this post concentrates on one of the more ignored aspects of their persona aka their lack of personal achievement or ability.

Some of you have read a short story or two by HP Lovecraft. In not, you have almost certainly seen a movie or TV show inspired by his work. Here are some examples: The Thing (1982), Alien (1979) and rest of series, Prometheus (2012) based on At the Mountains of Madness; Hellraiser (1987) and Hellraiser 2 (1988) take their main elements from a number of his books, In The Mouth of Madness (1994) is also based on a number of his books as is Event Horizon (1997). But Lovecraft’s influence on popular culture goes beyond far beyond adaptations and obviously inspired works. Entire new categories of horror, movie tropes and ideas in popular culture which came out of his work.

Lovecraft was the first to write at any length about the idea of non-humanoid aliens visiting earth in past to seed it with life or influence evolution. Technology-based devices which could transport you across space and time and into alien bodies.. ya, he wrote stories around those ideas before others. Isolated and inbred people who become monstrously evil creatures.. well, Lovecraft was the major inventor of that trope. Archaeologists discovering lost cities on earth which reveal remains of humanoid aliens.. he wrote about that too. Incredibly powerful and immortal extraterrestrial entities of poorly defined form.. ya, that too. Extremely ancient archaeological ruins as evidence of alien visitation.. you those too.

His stories treat continental drift on earth as fact, mention aliens using nuclear power to run their civilizations and vehicles and all this before 1940. Wonder where Stephen King gor the idea for cosmic monsters such as ‘It’? ya.. you guessed right.My point is that a lot of what we think of topics and tropes found in post-WW2 science fiction and horror stories can be traced to a guy who died in 1937 when he was just 46 years old. And all of this brings us to why his name has become controversial in the past decade. As it turns out, a guy born in 1890 USA to a old WASP family in New England had racist views about the world! Isn’t that surprising *sarcasm intended*. Isn’t it odd that he was not ‘liberal’ *more sarcasm*.

Here is the thing.. HP Lovecraft held many racist and conservative views, especially when he was younger. It did not help that he was notoriously aspy and meticulously wrote them out for future generations of SJWs to peruse while acting shocked. Having said that, Lovecraft was a far more complicated person than he is often accused of being. For example- he held anti-Semitic views, but ended up marrying a Jewish woman. He started life as a conservative, but ended up being a supporter of new-deal socialism. He looked down on non-western people, but many of his stories are set in the Middle-East, South Pacific islands and other non-western cultures. It is also clear that he had read and had some familiarity with non-western lore.

In spite of his racism, the non-western and non-white characters in his book are almost never stupid or intrinsically evil. If anything, he hated poor white people more than black or colored ones. To put it another way, Lovecraft was not the race-obsessed guy that many SJWs want to imagine. Oh ya.. and he was grew up during the most xenophobic decades in USA (1910s-1930s). The only reason we know about his racist beliefs, as opposed to the millions of others who also lived in USA during those decades, is because he was honest about said beliefs and wrote them down. Also, he was never in a position of power to enforce his beliefs.

Compare that to president Wilson (from the same era) who publicly supported the KKK and re-segregated the federal government. Or what about all those white mayors or governors who upheld racial segregation, residential redlining and tons of other racist policies? He also did not own slaves unlike many of the early presidents, including a few on our currency notes. My point is that while Lovecraft’s racism did influence his worldview and some of his stories, it had zero effect on the lives of contemporaneous black and non-white people around him.

So why do SJWs, none of whom display even a fraction of Lovecraft’s talent, keep writing large amounts of bullshit about how he should be “cancelled”. Maybe.. because they don’t have the talent to write anything as innovative and consequential in the history of american literature and popular culture as him. And here is a long-ish documentary on YouTube about HP Lovecraft that tells you a lot more about the man than some sad-sack SJW ever will..

    Typical of the moral indignation of SJW (et al) is that they are so selective in their outrage. They continue to buy running shoes, shirts, and cell phones largely produced (especially components) in conditions indistinguishable from slavery. More concerned with racism/slavery 400 years ago than actual human being living today.
    We see this with outpourings of selective humanitarian sympathy with some refugee or victim population, usually indicated by cynical geopolitical intelligence interests. The Vietnamese boat people, or gays in Iran. Who of the Anti-Apartheid warriors still follows the actual lives of S. Africans now, when moral outrage is somewhat harder to raise?

    In fact, the moral indignation is 100% American (as was McCarthyism). It is good old Calvinist Puritan morality, judging and separating the good and the evil, the chosen and the apostate. A new twist with the SJWs is that they are completely ahistorical, like Muslim fundamentalists destroying millenia old Buddhas at Bamiyam, or the Shia shrine for Jona, or the pope citing something that was said in the 14th century without realizing that he is citing and and not endorsing it.

    Moral outrage that does not spare the dead will not respect the living either.

      “It is good old Calvinist Puritan morality, judging and separating the good and the evil, the chosen and the apostate.”

      Funny how all these SJW’s would call a sex “worker” who makes $200 an hour off of Advocatus Diaboli and P Ray “oppressed” while they care not about an third party contractor who delivers their but plugs from Amazon. It seems like that “pull yourself up by the bootstraps” morality has allowed a parasitic form of capitalism to overrun the US.

        The flip side is, some people become “third party contractors” … because that’s the only job that accepts them.

        Remember to blame the companies that can only compete at the lowest price – not Amazon …

        If they all got together and formed a labour union, surely you would not be complaining about the wages.

        And …

        If you want a solution from a non-US citizen, well, aren’t you asking to be liberated by (those damn) foreigners?

        I assume you are on your Amazon job since a late reply means you have to keep your full attention to doing your job or risk losing it.

        Instead of sounding like “Land of the free and home of the brave” …

        it’s starting to sound like “Land of the sheep and home of the slave”

        “The flip side is, some people become “third party contractors” … because that’s the only job that accepts them.”

        You will whine endlessly about your inability to get a white woman. Yet you allude to my “low status” employment as a personal failing. Why is your failure “systemic” and mine due to personal shortcomings?

        With all that said, I most likely have “more cash on hand” than your good ole buddy GL Piggy. And probably more than you and AD, you guys really should stop making “working” women wealthy.

        Took you long enough to reply, and since when is saying I’m willing to pay for what I want “whining”?

        Since I have to spell it out for you: I believe your failure is probably due to personal shortcomings because you have the “luxury” of pot smoking and/or alcoholism … without the possibility of jail time for being drunk, under the influence or losing the job.

        As I said, your pot use is going to your head.

        And you can always, if you are really GL Piggy – see how you are schizophrenic with multiple personalities? – just clear the password on your wordpress blog.

    AD, what’ya think of this article:

    not surprised, especially given that this occurred in one of the southern states.

    I suggest you immediately publish your thoughts on the Russia Ukraine tension, so we’ll have a written record to check in the future.

    “Since I have to spell it out for you: I believe your failure is probably due to personal shortcomings because you have the “luxury” of pot smoking and/or alcoholism … without the possibility of jail time for being drunk, under the influence or losing the job.”

    didn’t you just say it was genetic a few sentences ago?

    “I suspect you will remain an unqualified and intoxicated reprobate, with nothing to show for your years of life, and the genetic inheritance involving impulsivity, ignorance and ineffectuality”

    I can spot an addict a mile away. Wonder how i developed that trait. Yes, there is a desperation with you and AD. You “pay for it” because it is supposed to give you the “convenience” of “one click ordering” yet you aren’t happy. There is a saying that many a low life has heard. “You can’t hustle an honest man.” I doubt you have the self reflection to intuitively understand what that means. And, no I won’t spell out what should be self evident. You’ve been called out Pee Spray. You are full shit. Enjoy your hookers.

    You are right, haha reich about one thing though. I give you that.

    Feminism=empowerment for white wimminz…

    MRA=empowerment for white “men.”

    Fuck ’em both.

    At least be like AD and make those sex “workers” work for that $200, okay Pee Spray, can you at least do that????

    • P Ray
      April 13, 2021 at 5:49 pm

      Nah, you’re expecting a pat answer on how to change your genetic destiny. Here it is …

      It’s nature AND nurture …

      Going AHA! at me with your typical “Gotcha!” attitude, simply demonstrates that you don’t understand that.

      So it looks like you are looking to not change your own circumstances, then don’t complain about things.
      P.S. Where’s the password clearance for glpiggy.wordpress.com?
      Also … I won’t correct you on the stupid assumptions you have made, and … enjoy your McJob.

        That’s not what our lord savior of HBD, Steve Sailor has to say:

        Lel, I’m not interested to make peace with anybody who “expects me to sacrifice for them, on the promise of a pie in the sky”.

        Keep expecting others to subsidise your life, as I said, because the loser Joran’s future is your future …

        Pie in the sky, yea right…
