Lou Antonelli is concerned about David Gerrold inciting the SJWs to violence:
“I really didn’t know much about [Gerrold] before the Hugo nominations came out. Following his discourse and his level of discourse as a result, I personally wrote a letter addressed to the police chief in Spokane and said I thought the man was insane and a public danger and needs to be watched when the convention’s going on, and I mean it. I attached my business card. I said this guy’s inciting to violence. Somebody—a weak-minded might attack somebody because of his relentless strength of abuse. I think, honestly, I think he belongs in a secure psychiatric facility.”
All SJW tactics are legitimate when used against them. So perhaps Lou should take a cue from Aurelie Nix and let the police know that David Gerrold and George R. R. Martin are serious rape threats. All he’d have to do is give them one of Rape Rape’s books and they’d find it credible enough to lock him up.
And frankly, given how David Gerrold is clearly making Lou Antonelli feel unsafe, should he even be permitted to attend? Surely that is a violation of the Code of Conduct.
Stay safe out there, Sasquan attendees.
UPDATE: At File 770, SMOF Kevin Standlee observes that Lou Antonelli is not the only one nervous about the prospects for violence at Worldcon:
To be vaguely fair, I’ve had people contacting me saying that Sasquan should get armed guards/off-duty Spokane PD officers hired to protect the convention from the right-wing lunatics who are obviously going to come and shoot up the convention/WSFS Business Meeting in support of the Right Thinking Puppies. I’ve also had people worried about my going to convention in Spokane, which is right next to Idaho (indeed, I have to drive through a bit of Idaho on US-95 to get there) because Everyone Knows that Idaho is full of Right Wing Gun Toting Survivalist Nuts.
