ConCarolinas is a science-fiction convention

that has knuckled under to a bunch of leftists threatening violence.  And doesn't have the balls to publicly say so.
Published April 16, 2018 | By Jada

ConCarolinas and John Ringo have mutually agreed he will not attend the 2018 event. ConCarolinas wants to provide a positive environment for everyone who attends our events from our guests, attendees, vendors, and staff.

We represent a diverse range of opinions and support that.

We will not tolerate harassment or bullying as stated in our policy.

Any comments regarding this may be sent to

ConCarolinas ConCom
Jada Diaz, ConChair
Dawson Kriska, Vice Chair
Sue Lambert, Secretary and Treasurer
Luis Diaz, Director of Security

Slight problem with 'mutually':
This was John’s response on Facebook: 
And again with the 'we do not tolerate harassment or bullying' without pointing out who that is pointed at.

From my last email with the conchair:
"as ConChair I know this will be an extremely hostile environment and I am concerned for your personal safety. "

It was mutual, more on that in a moment. But they very much rescinded because they were concerned for my safety.

That was how bad it was getting.
Etc.  If they'd said "He won't be here because other people were threatening violence" they'd have been  honest, but it would've pissed-off the leftists, so they didn't even do that.

Never been there, have heard from others that it's been a nice con.  'Been' being the important word.
