A Brief History of the Ultras

Post by DukeWu on Fri Jun 03, 2016 8:35 pm

The Ultras were founded on September 4, 2014, by Iain Davis, originally as the Gamergate Ultras. The group was formed in response to the policies of Gamergate 2014, the Ultras' forerunners, admin's. Having reached over 1000 members, making it one of the largest groups of that time, GG2014 had officially adopted a conciliatory approach to other groups and ideologies, promising an open platform for debate and discussion. This was immediately abused by the oncoming rush of SJW infiltrators and spies, who turned the group into a group resembling the modern Anti-SJW group. Iain, noticing this change and aspiring to a better standard of organization: one focused on nipping the problem in the bud rather than wrestle with its off-shooting branches.

At its height, the original Ultras had over 1500 members, and approached 1600 as a desperate turns in the personal life of the Ultra's founder caused erratic behaviour, which in turn created great instability. The college of eleven other admins at the time attempted to retain control of the group, but this was beyond their grasp. A regular contributor to the group without any formal status named Kevin Wu - me - then swept in and gathered all the members he could and allowed the other admins to retain their titles. Days after Ultras II was formed, Iain removed all the members and Ultras I was gone, forever.

Ultras II was smaller at its height, no more than 400 members at its greatest extant, and many of the admins through internal and external politics were replaced, and the college of twelve admins became a tradition. As the college's leader, Kevin took the title of Tribune. Ultras II came into conflict with the admins of Gamergate 2014 - now called Ethical Gamergate - and mysteriously vanished one day. Kevin Wu quickly came back, and restored the group (now Ultras III) with a smaller college of admins. Tired of all this internet drama, Kevin - I - retired from the college and let the other admins do what they did, returning briefly under a pseudonymous profile to restore order during a time of instability. However, a row over the official stance of Lolicon - I was against it the others didn't think removing people for blatant paedophilia was a good idea - led to the other admins stripping Kevin of his admin status.

Kevin - I - talked to Iain about this. Iain had already rebuilt his organization under the banner of General Purpose Anti-SJW Roundtable, but in honour of the reunification of our efforts, the group became the restored Ultras, then called the Anti-SJW Ultras. Kevin was made an admin, and later a long-term contributor to the community named Peter Williams became admin. Thus began the Triumvirate. Iain, seeing that the anti-SJW concept was dying away and the natural new direction of the Ultras' goals lay elsewhere, Iain decided that the group ought to be named the Alt-Right Ultras, the form it has currently taken (technically Ultras IV or V depending on your definition). Ultras III still exists, but Ultras Restored, with now over 1400 members, is once again the symbol of years of effort and a single, simple goal: to make the world a better place through open, community-focused, right action in both senses of the word.

Hope this one lasts longer. Either way, we have a forum now to regroup in the event of the worst. It was really good to get this brief to understand what had happened, because I remember when Iain changed the name 2-3 times and I was really confused as to the motive.

The Anti-SJW community on the internet is still very strong, but it has branched out like Hydra into so many different forms that cohesion is definitely wanting. I think it was good to have an anti-sjw themed group that has its own flavor and something people looking for order can be apart. I felt like I was getting lost in the sauce, especially with butthurt narcissists like Craig having a huge chunk of the community in his hands...which he quickly abused and shattered its sense of unity. That is starting to happen a lot I have noticed in the various groups and sub-groups.

Let us make the most of this thing we now have.

Respectfully,

What we need now is active recruitment to the forums. I have a feeling nobody will take it seriously until it's too late, and I don't want to have to process hundreds of verifications over the course of days.

I would suggest creating like a mock-advertisement style of video advertising the forum and the dangers that lurk on FB. Put it on the channel you and Iain have been using to host your conference calls. Run this like an advertisement all over FB and especially other groups we inhabit like Anti-Social Justice Activism and etc.

Somebody somewhere must have a way of counting how many people so far are getting banned on FB on a regular basis. If we could get access to those numbers it would be a great way to get the point across.

Huh, I had no idea that the ultras had gamergate roots. I just thought it was a bunch of history loving shitlords.
