Even though I’ve been a political junkie almost as long as I can remember, I’ve never been to Washington, D.C. It’s kind of always been a dream of mine, but I’ve just never made it happen, for whatever reason. I even moved to Richmond, Virginia last summer, which is not too far down the road. But I still haven’t been, mostly due to my GamerGate work. I guess it’s fitting then that the same community would finally be the ones to bring me to the nation’s capital. I’ve had many ups and downs these last eight months or so. I’m rather certain this is going to be filed away in the ups category.

In case you didn’t already know (or glean from my intro), GamerGate is having a meetup in Washington, D.C. on May 1st at 9:30 pm EST. Milo Yiannopoulos and Christina Hoff Sommers are both confirmed to be in attendance, so you don’t want to miss this one, if at all possible.

Here’s some more details, courtesy of Milo’s personal site (also, check out his column in The Sun from earlier today, as well as his recent interview):

I’ll also have an open thread on the day of the meetup, so people can come here and check out updates that I have from meeting people around the city, or anything else I feel like sharing. Thank you for your support, as always. I’m about to go get a haircut, so I’ll catch you guys later. Feel free to treat this as an open thread as well.

  1. I wonder if the antis are going to try to pull anything, like call the venue to convince them not to host “a hate group” or even go as far as call a SWAT team on the event.

      1. I’m guessing that Milo is smart enough to see this coming, and he’s not going to reveal the real venue until the last minute, when it’s too late for the antis to sabotage the meet-up.

  2. So jealous. I’d like to get an NYC-area meetup together but I’ve gotten very little in the way of responses when I ask on Twitter. Either I don’t have a big enough Twitter following/not cool enough or I’m not tweeting at the right time of day.

  3. ,,,enjoy old buddy,,,used to go to th’ old 930 club back when it was in its original location for Fugazi shows in th 80s,,,DC is much changed since then obviously…tell Milo th only hillbilly living in Enger-land wishes he could buy him a drink and say howdy…level up you bastard!

    1. ,,,i lived in Roanoke back then and also worked for Shirley and Chief at th’ Iriquois Club, workin’ th’ door, runnin’ th board, (we had a permanent Peavey stack pa, sound monitors, stage board mixer and sound board out in th club and bands woud just need their amps to do a show,), and general repairs like repainting walls, and those giant 10×10 posts whenever GWAR did a show there in their early days,,,goin to DC then was th’ only time I left town except for trips to Morgantown WV for 63 Eyes, th’ Inbred, Swiss Army Tractor, Afghan Whigs or Rasta Rafiki when they were playing th’ Nyabinghi (sic) Dance Hall… Damn old fart scene freak rant over,,,

  4. Wish i could be there, but I live on the wrong coast. Say “Hi” to Based Mom and Milo for me though. Have fun.

    1. Same. Airfare to fly across the continent isn’t something I can get all willy-nilly… plus, I was hoping I could make another trip to Summer Comiket this year (which is in in Tokyo).

  5. OOH… MAI… GAT! Dis gun be gooood. Wish I could be there, but DC it just to too far away (1,009 mi. to be exact) for me. This is a big for GG Ralph. This is an opportunity to put the SJW’s in their place.

  6. I’m about to go get a haircut

    See how GamerGate has brainwashed you into being a conservative misogynerd dudebro!

    You’ve given up you hippie hair! Pretty soon you’re going to be bathing regularly and then getting a job!

  7. Ill try and make it after work as it about a Metro ride from where I live. Quite new to GG and would like to talk to a real person about whats it about. Text doesn’t convey meaning very well most of the time.
