I'm talking specifically about Jim Raggi of Lamentations of the Flame Princess.
Holding views of ethnic purity, supremacy, or other such related bullshit, while they are opinions, are the sort that someone shouldn't decide is the free speech hill they will stand on.These are not opinions to be debated. These views are calls to action to inflict violence on people for simply being born into some group. Calling folks who espouse the views of Nazis, Nazis isn't hyperbole, or whatever. By holding those views they are literal Nazis, or neo-Nazis. Doesn't matter how pretty they are.
Being willing to ignore someone's horrible views because they might be a good gamer, is also shitty. You are saying you are ok with filth like Nazis, so long as they aren't siegheiling and goosestepping at your table. I'm talking about David McGrogan, Noism of Monsters and Manuals, who had
"great friendships and conversations I've had with people who hold diametrically or at least very fundamentally different views to mine: Communists, atheists, Muslims, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, born-again-Christians, Northern Irish republicans, Scottish Nationalists, UKIP voters, Manchester United supporters, Black Supremacists, White Supremacists, gun nuts, Daily Mail readers, Guardian readers, radical feminists, Australians, even fans of Doctor Who."Clearly he's ok with the views of racial/ethnic superiority, and whats also fucked up is equating fans of a fucking tv show with racial supremacists.
