What we can learn from Comicsgate

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

If you don’t know about Comicsgate yes, it’s essentially Gamergate but with comics. There is a real attempt at changing the comic book entertainment industry, and to force it to abide by new social justice rules. And it’s ruining comics.

This has resulted in many comic book pros going independent and becoming hugely successful selling directly to their fans, but it hasn’t been without drama. Ethan Van Sciver, a major player in Comicsgate, has now ditched the hashtag and moved towards his own platform.

There’s a lot we can learn from this whole predicament, and today I wanted to introduce you to the world of Comicsgate, what’s going on right now, and what we can take home from it. I think it’s important for conservatives to take note of what has been happening here. It’s time to start fighting back with our own content, media, and art.

Well, the first thing the Right can offer is Internet social platforms that allow free speech without any hint censorship.

There are some, like Gab and Bitchute, so maybe they should be supported by thos on the right that cannot offer monetary or technical support for these platforms.

Then … on those platform the Right can offer political commentary with facts and logic to support ideas for political reform instead of the hysterics offered by the left. That should attract even more Right thinking folks.
