What a breath of fresh air when I saw this yesterday:
Naturally, the magazine was attacked all over Twitter by the usual suspects saying this is a “red flag” and trying to torch the magazine itself. Apparently SFWA spent time trying to torch these people, as they’ve done with so many folk who politically disagree with their failed leadership, headed by the incompetent Mary Robinette Kowal.
Why does the SFWA post fake news? Why do they exhibit so much bias? There are a number of cases, but let’s begin with a solid example.
The SFWA issued a warning (via Writer Beware) stating that Thinkerbeat was the publisher of both the Unfit and Unreal magazines. This has never been the case. They have always been published by us, Longshot Press. Why didn’t the SFWA check the facts? Why did they mislead the public? Why, most importantly, haven’t they removed the false statement?
You can read more about SFWA’s attack on this magazine here.
Remember this every time they bleat about “diversity and inclusivity” they mean they’ll go out and seek and destroy anyone who disagrees with them politically or even LOOKS LIKE they’re a person who disagrees with them politically.
SFWA is an enemy to actual discourse and actual freedom of speech within the science fiction community. And this is just another incident where they show they can’t be objective about anything. Very sad to watch.
