Progressive comic book artists unite to harass non-progressive critic

From Megan Fox at PJ Media:

Richard Meyer has a YouTube channel called Diversity & Comics, where he reviews current comic books. Most of his reviews mock the overreaching and suffocating leftist messaging that has infiltrated the entire industry. I’ve seen enough of them to say with confidence that Meyer seems like a pretty nice guy with a passion for comic books. His reviews contain no swearing or major insults, just mild humor and a lot of chuckling.

Neyer sinned by failing to find political correctness interesting.

To make matters worse and more embarrassing for the SJW crowd of comic book writers, a secret Facebook page was revealed where writers plotted to target Meyer with harassment meant to incite violence. More.

Reality check: Progressives understand the world of arts as a space where government gives one the right or duty to disseminate something and permission, or even help, to suppress all non-government objectives, then acquire a captive audience.

The reader doesn’t matter. If progressivism wins, readers will be able to view only approved materials. Artists drawing approved strips will jostle savagely for priority in a queue that almost no one else notices any more.

    Reviewing present day comic books? Too much like being on the receiving end of severe mental torture.

    It’s not enough to get infected with Con-crud which is how Jerry Pournelle just died, now you have to pretend to be an SA thug too.

    In one of his videos he says he is kind of a lefty – he has a jewish daughter and a muslim daughter etc – but he’s not a fanatic about it. His major gripe is that the comics just aren’t good because: 1. Stuffing the story with SJW theories makes them deadly boring 2. The SJWs that are the authors and artists aren’t first rate – one girl had only one pro job before she was made head of one of the comic issues – and that job was wired for her.

    Another youtuber says he’s a lefty but doesn’t like the, in your face, SJW stuff. He says you have to slip it in like a meme and let it take root in the reader’s mind. Very dangerous.
