Sonicfox's comments were great. More people need to make a habit of calling America's biggest hate group out on what it is instead of letting disingenuous fucks pretend it's a functional political party.

Glad he won, seems like a good dude. The bit in the speech where he talked about not being in it for the money and bringing up giving 10k to his opponent for his dad's cancer treatment...kinda came off like he was fishing for applause. Probably just because he was nervous. I remember being impressed by that when someone made the thread highlighting it a while back.

The dude acted exactly how he always has in front of big crowds. He was nervous and silly like this at Evo and other majors in the past (when he was given time to cool down after popping off from big wins at least). I don't have a problem with his clearly heartfelt speech. It wasn't professional, but it was clearly from and by him. Go SonicFox.

Anyone that's mad about it should just go back to the lab and get better than him at the games if they want this glory for themselves. The dude is a legend. He's apparently also a gay & a furry. Whatever. He still is the best there's ever been at almost EVERY FIGHTING GAME ON THE PLANET. Insane accomplishment. Totally deserving of an award.

There are respectable people on both sides. Not all of them, and perhaps not even most of them. But we have much to learn from each other, regardless of our political leanings—and until we come to accept that, the division we're currently experiencing as a nation (and the destruction of the social fabric) is never going to heal.

Take it or leave it, but from the perspective of someone who is socially liberal and fiscally conservative, there is a lot wrong with both "sides" right now.
Yeah, I sure do think that both sides are being unreasonable, what with one wanting to deport, incarcerate and stigmatize minorities and the other wanting basic human rights and social benefits. Man, I wonder why anyone would think one side is more evil?

can't wait to see the people who are bothered by this once the trending gamer award curse does its thing and ninja becomes a public racist.

As a Libertarian personally it really does bother me to see people cheer this sort of divisive stereotyping.

Everyone deserves our respect and our consideration. Intersectionality is a self-destructive force however. People should not categorize themselves based on their immutable characteristics: they should do so based on their thoughts and opinions.
There is a division between white supremacists and good people.

There is NO FUCKING MIDDLE GROUND! How hard is this to grasp, man?

There is nothing to be learned from nazis, white supremacists, racists, homophobic, transphobic, and misogynistic people.

NOTHING!

This is one of those rare, easy cases of right or wrong. You know, like slavery was either right or wrong, NO FUCKING middle ground!

Oh wait, wtf? I'm arguing with a libertarian...ya'll don't live in reality. Not sure whose beliefs are the most laughable, Libertarians or Anarchists.

Fox is a cringy person, his fandom on this site is so strange. Are you a fan of his personality? Do you actually watch fighting game events on a regular basis? He’s known for being cringy and he’s hilarious because of it.
I watch him enough to realize these particular people probably ain't calling him cringe as a remotely positive thing

Not sure the average republican knows what a furry is.
They certainly know what an outspoken proud gay black man is and their response to him should be pretty easy to predict.

Remember what their response to Lebron getting political was,"Shut up and dribble."

I fucking hate the term "too political" so much. Just come out and say you don't want to be bothered with the plight of people that aren't you.

Good on my man, Sonicfox.

Lol

I don't have shit to learn from people who hate me and don't wanna give me equal rights. Also it's 2018, socially liberal isn't some great revolutionary label anymore. Maybe you could learn from actual academia and realize financial conservatism is in opposition to being socially liberal along with not actually working. Like. Ever. In all of history.

Anyone who doesn't understand why people wouldn't want to associate with the gamer label?




This is why.
That's kid's gloves compared to a lot of the shit he's gonna get.

"Oh yeah? I hate black and gay people? I'll show you how wrong you are by calling you black anf gay slurs!"

It's fair to call all Republicans fascists and racists for the same reason it's fair to say all [American] cops are bastards: Even the so-called "good ones" aren't standing in opposition to their worst elements. They are all complicit at best.

Much preferred Ninja’s speech. This was incredibly cringe.

It really was. I don’t mind someone being themselves but he came off as the smallest person in the room. Standing up for something not a single person in there would oppose publicly.

Supergay? Cmon man geez. Never knew there was levels to your homosexuality. I say that with respect. No one is less a human for being gay but don’t make it a point to prove your gayness. Especially in the gaming community which is very diverse at a gamer level.

The only furry people I've met were very interested in sex with animals. Is that... common among them? If yes, it would make me wonder about the support of furries here, lol.
Because sex with animals is as uncool as pedophilia(?).

Besides that, dude seemed pretty honest and grounded, just being excited and himself. Haven't seen any of his fighterz matches before. Now I have, and yeah, deserved award. Hype stuff.
