From John Scalzi's Twitter Feed today:
"Today has been a reminder of the irony that those concerned about the "extinction" of the white race are the best argument for its demise."
Yeah, he "went Hollywood" years ago - gets a swelled head from being a successful writer, suddenly thinks he's an opinion leader on stuff he knows nothing about.
Before Scalzi, a writer was judged by the quality of their work first, and then - if applicable - their politics and faith would be cited. Now, you start with citing a writer's faith and politics before you decide if they are a good writer - which leads to ludicrous assertions such as that Larry Correia isn't a real writer. Of course, Larry laughs all the way to the bank.
Scalzi perfected the racket of finding out about someone through the SFWA, and then attacking them on his personal blog. The SFWA had legitimate deniability, but once Scalzi learned you weren't a doctrinaire leftist and atheist, he's rip you a second one somewhere else.
