HPL Insurance

Okay, I'm not just sending this out because it's cute. It seems to be part of a welcome counter-attack against an item on the Politically Correct agenda, i.e. erasing H. P. Lovecraft from history and America's pop culture context and shaming young White people who are into his mythos. (They came after J.R.R. Tolkien a few years ago and despite the three great movies I think the crybullies may resume their anti-Tolkien campaign as well soon.)

I am going to start circulating a small amount of this kind of stuff, because this snide anti-Lovecraft smear campaign, which has been around for a few years, is ramping up, and what was formerly a harmless childhood hobby of mine (and millions of others) is now officially Wicked and Evil Wacism, and how dare us Whiteboys try to retain anything at all of our own, unique to our own adolescent experience, something that is rooted solely in the work of a racially conscious White male and is not non-White or Jewish in some way? We don't get to keep anything of our own like that, sez them.

Remember the cracks that Guardian lefty-lib made last June about "proto-fascist science fiction" from the classic era of the 50s and 60s still corrupting young White male minds away from the true path of love-thy-nigger and how I was called a "right-wing science fiction writer" who somehow "inspired" Dylann Roof?

I'm sure there are Lovecraftian girls as well, but I never met one, and it does seem to be something of a male subcultural thing, probably because Lovecraft wrote in the days before feminism and his female characters are minimal. This is admittedly a literary weakness--I like writing about women, good and bad--but Lovecraft was of an older and more patriarchal literary school. That doesn't excuse a visionary genius whose sole crime was to be a man to his time being excreted on by the Crybullies, who are now attempting to make him an un-person.
Anyway, I'll try not to go all Shrub-Niggurath on you, but when you see intermittent Lovecraftian counter-strikes in my stuff from now on, that's what it's about.

An excellent analysis of the so called "racism"in Lovecraft's work...

Good on you! I was at Worldcon and it made me sick how the SJW crybullies gloated at "No Award" being given in the Hugos, again and again! Just to get back at the "Puppies," they snubbed some mighty fine authors and works.

"In an ad distributed by Coca-Cola Mexico, pretty, young white people do their holiday good deed by bringing bottles of soda to a remote village and build a wooden Christmas tree in the town square...

“This type of publicity is an act of discrimination and racism,”"

So now, even the very act of BEING white is an act of racism and discrimination.
