A Letter to Everyone, Left and Right, Over the Recent Events Surrounding 'Hogwarts Legacy'

I want to make it clear that in this article, I’m not just speaking to one single political affiliation. This applies to everyone who, despite who they voted for in the last election, will be forced to find themselves on common ground. I’m not using the term “forced” lightly. You are being lumped into a singular entity, whether you like it or not, by people who’ve declared you their enemy.

Whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, whether you even share agreements with the social justice ideologies, whether you consider yourself a socialist or a staunch classical liberal, you are all subject to subjugation by an ideology that requires obedience.

This might sound dramatic, but rest assured, the dramaticism isn’t coming from my end. This is how the social justice-obsessed and societal dictators of the radical left view the general public. You can consider yourself the most moderate of the moderates and try to understand and even find common ground with them; it doesn’t matter. Your inability to fully submit yourself to their ideals makes you, in their eyes, evil, fascistic, bigoted, racist, sexist, transphobic, etc., etc., etc.

Over the course of the past few months, I’ve been covering the reaction from the radical leftists and transgender activists to the video game “Hogwarts Legacy.”  The video game has become a beachhead of the culture war due to these activists making playing the game a litmus test. A massive battle ensued between the transgender activists and the general public, with the activists stating that playing the game makes you an evil transphobe and the general public laughing in their faces and making the game wildly successful before it was even released.

It was all fun and games until people actually started playing on Tuesday. The mobs activated and began attacking streamers. A website was created where people could turn in streamers who played the game, with the purpose of threatening their careers. Popular streamers were bullied so badly, and some took it better than others. Popular YouTube couple “Girlfriend Reviews” was attacked in their chat, forcing Shelby, the girlfriend, to cry and leave the room, while boyfriend Matt just stopped talking to chat. Twitch Streamer XQC reacted by telling off those attempting to bully him into stopping the game.

A more interesting and very telling moment came with famous socialist and radical leftist Twitch streamer Hasan Piker admitting that he’s not playing the game because he’s been bullied by activists and their allies into not streaming it.

I’m going to skip over the commentary about how feeding monsters will eventually get you eaten yourself because that’s not the point of this article.

The point is that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you stand. These radical activists have no allies and know no friends. Their only concern is their own sense of moral superiority, which will often come at the expense of anything from your livelihood to your peace of mind. They find relevance in their ability to control you through social pressures. Your capitulation means about as much as resistance, as once it’s in their mind to destroy you, they’ll continue to do so until they succeed or find something else to distract them.

The lesson here is simple. It’s not worth it to ever give into this group. Ever. You will not appease them. They will not give you mercy. You will not make them your friends by being “allies.” They can and will turn on you at any moment, no matter how supportive you’ve been, because your friendship is useless to their ultimate selfish goal. Your apology will fall on deaf ears if you make it. Your best defense against them is an unapologetic offense.

Just live your life. Do what you want to do and say what you want to say with your chest. Living life by the radical activist’s rules is no life at all. It’s obedience to a cause you’re not even a part of.

They only have so much power as you give them. Give them nothing.
