Rapid Puppies Make the Hugos Great Again

Making the Hugos great again
But these are minor concerns, as for me the three most important factors are these:

1. The rocks are being overturned and the long-hidden problem of pedophilia in science fiction is finally beginning to be exposed. This is the real story.
2. Jerry Pournelle being recognized for his excellent and ground-breaking editorial work.
3. SPACE RAPTOR BUTT INVASION!

I don't know if we'll see more than five categories no-awarded this year, but it doesn't matter. They didn't think the Rabid Puppies could do it this year, but once more, the Puppies demonstrated that the SJW Narrative is a false one and the oft-repeated insistence that everyone subscribes to it is a lie.
Vox's press release:
Much to the surprise of the social justice warriors in the science fiction community, who believed stern disapproval and a record voter turnout would suffice to leash the Rabid Puppies, the nominations for the 2016 Hugo Awards were once more dominated by the corybantic canines. 64 of the Supreme Dark Lord's 81 recommendations made the 2016 shortlist, an increase of 6 from last year's 58 finalists.

"I'm not even remotely surprised to learn that the Rabid Puppies did so well," said Vox Day, as he mopped his brow with the flayed skin of an SJW after an arduous night of celebrating his fourth and fifth nominations. “For over 20 years, the mainstream science-fiction publishers have been trying to pass off romance in space and left-wing diversity lectures as science fiction. Support for the Puppies is a popular reaction to mediocrities and absurdities being presented as the very best that the field has to offer.”

Many of the finalists were delighted by the news. Chuck Tingle, author of "Space Raptor Butt Invasion", nominated for Best Short Story, tweeted: "understand #HUGOAWARDS nominate Space Raptor Butt Invasion as best book ever. This PROVES that we exhist in the first layer of tingleverse!"

Others were less pleased. Tor Books author David Barnett declared in The Guardian: "The Hugo awards, once the watchword of quality in the SFF world, appear to have been utterly derailed for the second year running."
