This thread is for discussing various politics in /tg/ hobbies without derailing existing threads or topics. There hasn't been too much news, but the last thread is autosaging, so we may as well have a new one to discuss what little there is and to update anons on any obscure scenarios. It may also serve as a litmus test for the recent influx of cuckchanners and give them an idea of the board's political leanings (although /tg/, of course, is not a single person).
Anyway, there are two pieces of news which are semi-relevant:
>three WotC artists try to enter U.S. for "work discussion," before being detained and deported by ICE
Full story: http://archive.is/byJc3
WotC has yet to comment on the situation. It appears due to an ambiguity in the wording for an ESTA visa waiver - which allows for meetings related to business but not employment - the contractors ran afoul of it, and are thus permanently banned from entering the U.S. with anything less than a full visa.
>beardfat's court battle with his assailant is apparently real enough for him to be in contact with an attorney, and will be happening "soon"
He has so far raised ~$30,000 on his GoFundMe page to help with legal fees. Given how effectively this was astroturfed by convention staff and media, I doubt anything will come of it until the assailant gets the legal book thrown at him. Beardfat claims his attacker has been arrested, although a cursory search of Indianapolis PD arrest reports isn't conclusive.
Anything else you guys want to discuss?
