Jeremy Hambly assaulted at Gen Con by male feminist Matt Loter

Jeremy Hambly, the man behind the YouTube channels TheQuartering and Unsleeved Media was physically assaulted at the Tin Roof, a drinking establishment in Indianapolis. It’s actually part of a chain of bars all over the United States. There’s one in nearby Baltimore.

Jeremy was there to attend Gen Con, an annual event promoted as the best four days in gaming.

Here’s the video Jeremy posted about the assault:

Jeremy Hambly’s attacker has been identified as a man named Matt Loter.

Who is Matt Loter?

Matt Loter co-owns and operates Elm City Games with his wife, Trish Loter. The store is in New Haven, Connecticut. Loter is at Gen Con to promote a table-top came he designed. I would now rather play Russian roulette with the Viet Cong than play this game.

Who gets to decide who’s a Nazi?

Loter when not designing games no one wants to play, dressing as a fairy princess, or wearing a shirt that encourages people to punch Nazis, works as a justice of the peace in the state of Connecticut. Seriously, a justice of the peace.

This from LinkedIn:

How absurd is it that a man who attacks someone from behind is also a justice of the peace? Jesus Christ famously said, “Truth is stranger than fiction.” Those words from our Lord and Savor have never rung truer.

LinkedIn also shows that Loter has a Bachelors in Political Science and Women’s Studies. He also has a Masters in History and Secondary Social Studies Education, whatever that means.

Women’s studies. I’ve always wondered what people with that particular degree do when they grow up. Mystery solved.

Matt Loter planned the assault on June 5. Maybe:

Anita Sarkeesian’s twitter handle is @femfreq. She was probably too busy playing video games, eating Doritos, and chugging Mountain Dew to notice the threat in her Twitter feed. As everyone knows, Anita is a hard-core video gamer.  With table-top gaming’s popularity on the rise, I guess Anita will become a table-top gamer too so she can tell everyone who enjoys the hobby how sexist and misogynistic they’re being.

Jeremy made a video about Gen Con inviting Anita Sarkeesian as a guest of honor. It’s something that surprised a good many people, including myself.

Jeremy Hambly did nothing wrong

I find it outrageous Gen Con would know Matt Loter wanted to “fight” anyone who had a problem with Anita Sarkeesian being a Gen Con guest of honor and not doing anything about it. Either that or they don’t monitor their Twitter feed.

What does it mean to be a Gen Con guest of honor? Gen Con is paying the guest to be there. Considering Anita has expressed no interest in table-top gaming, it’s highly doubtful she would attend Gen Con on her own.

Gen Con as of this morning has not commented on the assault on Jeremy Hambly, nor have they banned Matt Loter from attending the con. Considering the safety risk Loter poses not only to Hambly but to everyone else attending the con, Gen Con’s inaction seems both asinine and highly dangerous.

Matt Loter cannot control himself. What’s going to happen when he decides a 14-year-old boy in a wheelchair is a Nazi? I guess he’ll just pound on him too.

This incident really irritates me. What Matt Loter did is indefensible. I’ve come to genuinely appreciate Jeremy Hambly’s content on YouTube. I hope for everyone’s safety, Gen Con will revoke Loter’s 4-day pass and the Indianapolis police will do their duty and arrest him.

Update

I’ve had to shut down comments on this post. It’s something I’ve never had to do in 12 years of blogging. The amount of vitriol I’ve been getting is really inexcusable. My blog’s comment section is not your blog. You want to attack me on a personal level while you hide behind a fake name (unless your parents named you Road Dog or SerHaHa) go do it elsewhere. You can still do it, you just cannot do it here.

Perfect example why I don’t like Boogie2988


Sometimes people ask me what I have against Boogie2988. First of all, Boogie2988 is not a real person. He’s a character played by Steven Williams. Not only is it a character, what version of the character you get depends greatly on the platform on which you view it.

If you watch Boogie2988 on YouTube, you’ll get a sweet, nice guy who tells you at the end of each video he loves you. If you watch Boogie2988 on his Twitch channel, you’ll get something else altogether. For example, the following video is from Twitch. Boogie2988 showed his viewers how he performs oral sex on a female prostitute, culminating in strangling her while he grunts, “Die… die!

(Warning: Don’t watch this video unless you have a strong constitution.)

Steven Williams is a disgusting individual

What strikes me about this revolting video is it was recorded in the same room he records his YouTube videos. He has a Yoda print on the wall. Another print has the words, BOOM!, WHAM!, and ZAP! There’s also a Darth Vader print. There are more toys and trinkets that I can count. If you didn’t know this was the recording studio of 43-year-old Steven Williams, you’d think it was the bedroom of a developmentally challenged 12-year-old boy.

It’s only a matter of time before more people realize what a pathetic fake Steven Williams is. I stopped watching his videos. I think a lot of other people have too. Although he currently has over 4.5 million subscribers, his videos rarely crack 200,000 views.

Anita Sarkeesian is an astute judge of character

Renowned feminist and video game critic Anita-Sarkeesian.

I have to hand it to Anita Sarkeesian. Her spidey-sense was activated at Vidcon 2017 when she appeared on a cyberbullying panel with Steven. When he asked her after the panel if he could take a selfie with her, she refused. I don’t care much for Anita Sarkeesian, but I have to hand it to her for knowing what a revolting piece of human excrement Mr. Williams is. Before appearing on the panel with him, I doubt she had ever heard of him. She was able to quickly ascertain what type of person he was.

I don’t hate Steven Williams. I hate fake people. Steven Williams, pound for pound, it’s the fakest person in North America.

Boogie2988 appeared on the H3 Podcast and lied

While in Southern California for VidCon 2018, Boogie2988 appeared on the H3 podcast with hosts Ethan and Hila Klein.

Lots of things were talked about including what happened at last year’s event when Boogie2988 appeared on a CyberBullying panel. One of the other guests on stage was the infamous Anita Sarkeesian. If you believe Boogie2988, Sarkeesian chewed him out after the panel.

Maybe she did, maybe she didn’t. I don’t really care. If he didn’t want to get into it with her, he should have just driven his scooter chair away. Better yet, he shouldn’t have even appeared on the panel with her. He loves video games. She hates video games, is anti-free speech, and would like to ban most video games because they’re sexist and misogynistic. Boogie2988 makes a living because of free speech and video games.

From the H3 podcast (50 seconds in):

I’m going to repeat the thing that got me in so much trouble: here I am sitting in a place of perceived privilege. I and straight. I am white. I am male. And you guys think that makes me bulletproof, but it doesn’t. I’ve had people show up at my door to say nasty shit to my face. I’ve had them send boxes of shit to my front door. I’ve had them send black dildos to my PO box.

If you are a straight white male and you’re in this audience and you think you’re immune to it, get to my level of notoriety and you’ll get shit too.

You don’t have to get to Boogie2988’s level of notoriety to get shit on the Internet.

Are black dildos less collectible?

Why the emphasis that the dildo was black? Does that make it worse somehow? Don’t they make dildos in lots of different colors? When you set up a PO box and ask people to send you things, it’s not all going to be Pokemon plushies and packs of Magic: The Gathering cards. You should expect a dildo every now and then.

Boogie claimed what he said on the H3 Podcast was basically word for word what he said at the panel. Was it?

Here’s a transcript of his appearance on the 2017 Vidcon Cyberbullying panel (51:23):

Moderator: We only have about five minutes left. I just want to ask if anyone has any final thoughts before we close up.

Boogie2988: I’ve got a doozy if I can. Oh okay, I practiced this for weeks. I think sometimes because we do talk about certain subsets of people specifically people without privilege some people can get the misconception that only those groups are targeted. I say this as the only male on this panel and I say this as a white cis male, a person who’s in a place of privilege that I understand some communities have it worse but I have trouble really understanding them because of the depths of what we’ve gone through.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, a few years back we had someone put out a hit on my wife on the TOR network for thirty-five hundred bucks and then they sent me the link and they delivered a pizza to my house to let us know they are there. The absurd thing is they had an address wrong. They had my friend’s address because a friend had left a box at my house and the box had a label and the label appeared in a video. So I had to call my friend and say, “Jason, get out of your house. They’re going to kill you.” And he said, “What are you talking about?” I sent him a screen cap and the doorbell rings and it’s Dominoes. And he said, “We don’t want any pizza, please.”

We’ve had boxes of feces delivered to our homes. We’ve had threats on my life, my family. We’ve been made to feel very, very uncomfortable. And I don’t say this to dismiss anyone else’s pain or to say that I have it worse because I genuinely don’t believe that I do. I just want to say that if it can happen to me, and I’m coming from a place of privilege, I think it can happen to anyone.

It can happen to any of you who choose to create tomorrow. And I think when we get that misconception. I think that… we have naysayers. Well, it’s not worse for you, it’s not worse for people of color. I think that when we focus it on a human rights issue, not a woman’s issue, not a man’s issue. Not a gay or straight issue or a fat person or skinny person issue.

When it’s a human rights issue that affects us all at least in some way, I feel we can unite these subsets, these groups of these different people and I think we can fight it together and when we do that, I think that’s how we actually could potentially beat cyberbullying. But we have to unite into a strong group to do that.

I now see Anita Sarkeesian’s point

Listening to this so I could write out a word for word transcript really opened my eyes. I see why Anita Sarkeesian was so pissed at him. I’d be pissed off too.

When the moderator said they had about five minutes left and asked if anyone had any final thoughts, Boogie had just finished speaking. Hearing there were only five more minutes left for the panel, he proceeds to speak for another three and a half minutes.

Doctor Who is a Time Lord, Boogie2988 is a Time Hog

The words that came forth from Boogie2988’s mouth really were a doozy. First of all, he says the hit was taken out on his wife, not him. This would confirm women do have it worse when it comes to cyberbullying. He can’t see that. He’s always the victim. Even when his wife was threatened, he has to make it all about himself.

And the pizza being sent to his friend’s house? I think it really was sent to his house, but he was trying to throw some chaff and flares towards the person who ordered him the pizza, to make them think they don’t have the correct address when in fact they really do.

An Air Force C-130 dropping chaff and flares.

Even Boogie2988 gets confused about who’s house it was sent to. First, it was his house, then it was his friend’s house.

You will notice not once during the VidCon 2017 panel does he mention a perceived privilege.  He said:

  • He was a person who’s in a “place of privilege.”
  • I’m coming from a “place of privilege.”

This was when I lost all respect for Boogie2988. He was repeating the same old canard that straight white men are somehow privileged. As a white, straight male I can assure you this sexist and racial stereotype is not at all accurate.

It was then that I stopped being a fan of Boogie2988. I continued to watch his videos, but with a more critical eye. Once I started doing that, I couldn’t get over how much lying he did. The man lies all the time. I’ve come to the conclusion he may not even realize he’s doing it.

Boogie2988, staunch defender of the adult entertainment industry

Steven Williams, the man who plays Boogie2988 on YouTube, posted on Twitter about his support of the adult entertainment industry.

I wonder if he had a daughter, would he encourage her to pursue a career in the industry he has nothing but love for? Would he encourage any of his fans to pursue a career in the adult entertainment industry? An industry that is notorious for abusing the people who participate in it?

What a weirdo. No wonder Anita Sarkeesian refused to pose for a selfie with him at this past Vidcon. The two appeared together on the same panel. He probably gives off a weirdo stink that she could detect. As such a huge fan of video games, why would he even want a photo with Anita Sarkeesian?

Steven Williams, also known as Boogie2988, also known as Francis, is such a lying fake. Why more people don’t see that about him is a mystery to me.

 

 

It turns out, Anita Sarkeesian was maybe right

Infamous video game critic and hyper-feminist Anita Sarkeesian has an image on her Twitter page that shows a necklace that says, TRUST NO MAN.

When I first saw the image, I thought she was just trying to be edgy. I thought it was an example of over-the-top hyperbole meant to invoke a reaction. I chose not to take the bait. It’s why I didn’t write about it until now.

With the news that Senator Al Franken acted inappropriately with a woman during a USO tour, I now look at Anita Sarkeesian’s necklace and have to think it’s pretty dead on. If you can’t trust Al Franken not to act like a dirtbag, what man can you trust?

You trust no man, that’s who.

You don’t realize who your heroes are until they do something terrible and you’re left with a heavy feeling of disgust. That’s what I feel when I see the photo of Al Franken pretending to grope Leeann Tweeden while she sleeps, disgust. It’s clear to me now from the way I feel, Al Frankin was kind of a hero of mine. I really liked him.

Not anymore.
