The allegations of sexual misconduct carried out by former Vice journalist and anti-#GamerGate critic, Sam Kriss, managed to reach the British Labour Party. In result, Kriss has been suspended from the party.
The Huffington Post U.K., is reporting that a spokesperson for the Labour Party explained that they were informed about the sexual misconduct allegations levied at the Social Justice Warrior and self-proclaimed “Marxist Leftist”. The spokesperson reportedly told The Huffington Post that they decided to suspend him from the party. They also noted that they will take further appropriate action, saying…
“The Labour Party is aware of complaints about Sam Kriss. The party takes all complaints seriously and will take all appropriate action in line with the party’s rulebook and procedures.”
The National Executive Committee will convene on whether or not to permanently boot Kriss from the party or keep him on.
Kriss isn’t the only anti-#GamerGate journalist who has been caught in the cross-hairs of Social Justice. The inward cannibalism has also affected another journalist named Rupert Myers, who was also engaged in alleged sexual misconduct. He, too, was fired from fairly prominent online media outlets.
This systematic outing of journalists within the entertainment and tech industry comes in the wake of Harvey Weinstein’s firing from The Weinstein Company for alleged sexual misconduct.
In the case of the tech and video game journalists, they all seem to have in common the trait of being anti-#GamerGate critics who supposedly championed women rights as male feminists. These men attacked #GamerGate, calling it a misogynist movement and a harassment campaign in order to deter public opinion away from #GamerGate’s real goal of reforming unethical behavior and practices in media journalism.
It turns out that many of these supposed male feminists were wolves in sheep clothing.
Some of them have apologized while others have attempted to delete their social media profiles and attempt to disappear.
In the case of Sam Kriss, things have escalated for him not just because of the Labour Party suspension but also because Labour Party MP, Jess Phillips – a known raucous feminist – publicly implied to have Kriss serve prison time.
Whether or not anything will come of the threats remain to be seen, but it looks like Kriss is losing more than just his reputation after the allegations of misconduct surfaced.
