Totalitarian Tango

This is a guest post from Moiret Allegiere.  He has a great deal to say about our plight as men in today’s insane misandrist world. You can find his blog here.

The street lamps shine with umbrage while permanently offended sidewalks creak and croak. «Left foot, left foot, left foot, march!», a voice through smashed windows beckon. The weird and wired click-clack of jackboot-stilettos echoes through the dim night, as we are made to dance in pairs to the frightbat tunes of the totalitarian tango.

Our civilization is turning to dust in one fleeting fall from grace, engineered by ideologues with selfspun halos `round their moonfaced grins, made from cotton picked in slave plantations by men with necks bent under the weight of someone elses projected thoughts. Here we go, picking cotton, picking a bit of cotton, listening to the mind boggling screech of the totalitarian tango.

As history comes full circle and we come to ourselves, we ought to reclaim what values we once had; we ought to value these grand memories, our building blocks, our beautiful ethics! We think, as we watch our values and our virtues and our moral integrity get rolled in the bog and labelled unclean, unfit for human consumption, that progression for the sake of regression is a grand stroke of divine inspiration, that it is a virtue equal to none, a virtue in and off itself, impossible to criticize, as we ourselves roll around in the filth, naked, whipped and bleeding, glancing at the icy rhythm of the totalitarian tango.

No matter the mind, and never mind the matter! No matter the sane, never mind the truth! In the glorious present of the stunning utopia, this call is not ours to call. Our phones have been left off the hook indefinite, and we are hung on the hook infinitely: guilty by association, guilty of thinking what this new breed of crybully authoritarians believe that we think. You think like this, you see, due to balls and white skin and normative sexuality. And don`t you forget it, you lowly bro, you pathetic inbred neckbeard basement-dweller, you hideous ogre, you! And miracles of miracleberries: they sign documented out-patients away, for to sing and then to dance and henceforth to bleed, to singe and to glance and to breathe in the six-string-shooter ballads of the totalitarian tango.

Our five-finger-dance is oppressive. Monkey see, monkey do. Our superior aristocracy, the new victim class are working towards denying us our right to speak and assemble, under the pretense of them being victims of thissen-hissen and other such mumbo-jumbo. In the topsy-turvy world of upside-down land which these parasites inhabit, the powers that be deny us our opinions, our voices and our pain. `cause it offends, see. And offense is the worst, see. In our mouths they put their own bigotry, their own hatred and their own in-group preference, reasoning thusly: we think like this about them, therefore they must think like this about us. A hivemind-vacuum, an echo chamber, nourished by eternal intellectual blockades, a shot of black tar heroin delivered straight into eyeballs, dry and crusty that tears the parchment from the walls. It calls us out to pray, the earth moulds us from the clay, the wind beckons us to play, we hear the sunshine turn the night to day. We should revolt. We submit instead, lest we be shamed yet again. Alone we stand, audited, glanced at, then dismissed, fodder for the cannons, food for the vultures, spat in the face: more broken men in line to do the totalitarian tango.

Do my eyes deceive me? I see a Bosch sketch of a society yet to come, gigantic hellscapes rising from the pineal gland, a fleeting whisper from ruby red lips cracking into a bloodstained smile, painted then tainted by mad, frenzied eyes, stung with crazy lies, with tongue tied chants, full of words and temper, signifying nothing! Eighteen more strokes of the clock, seven days to reach the glock, a beckoning to grab the golden cock as we march along to the beats of the drum; the beats of the hurr-durr. A recently legalized, nationwide, socially and state-sanctioned hatred, unaltered, unopposed. We are living in a total conversion mod of western society, see, a totalitarian farce, depraved and decadent, a lonely lunatics nightmare timeline: the totalitarian tango.

And we ought to be hanging from the piss-yellow light of the street lamps come midnights eternal, roaring with laughter and howling at the slutwalk-moon at all the weird shit going down. We ought to not be listening to this absurdity. We should not yield to their ridiculous demands; the feminist hivemind speaking the language of the social justice intersectional rumba. Yet we yield and yet we cater to their every whim and flight of fancy, and yet we bend over backwards, then conform to their every nonsensical demand. The decades of shaming has reached peak efficiency, the malebashing nearing its climax. Orgasmic screams of the orgasmic divine: woman good, men bad. In the language which greets us at the feminist intersection of reason and madness: men are disposable, women are aristocracy. We should not dance. Leave the hivemind to their fainting couches and smelling salts. We should not dance, and yet we do, step by step, beat by beat, the totalitarian tango.

Here we see the streams of time follow the flow of hate with a call to arms raised in banners, raised in banners of fluctuating solidarity. Our politics have become absurdist theaters. Our absurdist theaters have become politics. Here come the politically correct lynchmobs. Watch them gather in the streets chasing down the witches and the heretics, the wrongthinkers, the thought-crime-afficianados whils’t vomiting a stream of consciousness-nonsense from lips painted the colour of hate, regurgitating what they have been thought to say: tango fodder, do-gooder, moral busybodies watching what their neighbours do with binocular-efficiency and then insisting that their neighbours is watching what they do instead, deny and reverse victim order in the diamond light of the totalitarian tango.

Snowwhite was raped, and so was cinderella. Prince charming is a construct, a dominant male power fantasy. The damsel in distress trope is misogyny extreme, yet he for she and help us, men. In a society wherein everything is a social construct, gender in particular, there seems to be an obscene amount of focus on the faults of one gender, and the glory of the other, by biology say they, when the biological findings confirm their narrative structure, a narrative structure as fleeting as the warm smell of rotten eggs. even as they claim gender is a social construct. Don’t worry, mate, Big Sister got more than enough mental gymnastics rolling the rounds of the totalitarian tango.

Never you mind and never you worry, buddyboy, our claws will not remove your cock – or leastways parts of it – yet we may have to take your balls away. It is the testosterone, you see, which is the problem, see, and testosterone is made manifest in cumstains galore all across the face of mother earth. Testosterone is a burden, a murder weapon, a tool of the oppressive patriarchy, even if we also tell you that your masculinity is a social construct and nothing but, there is still testosterone poisoning. We are all double-think and wondrous laughs as we prance and shoot our way through the grandiosity of the totalitarian tango.

Listen and believe to the harbingers of doom and gloom as the dust settles on the emotionless, wildly staring eyeballs of these sultry goddess-queens, as dead and dying silverstreams of cum from silverbacked gorillas worth more than you flows like a river from the cheeks of societies past. Let me hear your laugh, young boy, and chant along with the wave we are riding, the wave towards our ingenious yet indescribably horrible freedom. Freedom from offense: sew cushions and pillows underneath our arms so that we never have to experience anything even remotely resembling difficulty. Do not deny us our personhood by merely stating disagreements. Do our dance, tick-tock along with the jackboot-stillettoes, Do not offend, dear, do not offend. Also: dare not take offense to the hatred we spew, as we dance and weave and whine the totalitarian tango.

The night is ours, a proclamation. We are taking it back, a glorious calculation. Give the men a curfew, keep em all locked away in musty basements. Take away their hobbies and destroy all their spaces, deny the men their fun and their fancies, and let us sit and spin our cottontwined haloes `round our nimble figureheads, as we feast on the blood of the weak this week, oh god what a grandiose performance, oh my how incredibly brave and courageous and strong this perpetual victim is. Do not raise your voice: feminism is for men too! They are watering our beers with crocodile tears, as we accept and reform and reject everything but the totalitarian tango.

And moses spreads his cheeks and god spreads his lips and the evening spreads itself thin over the hurt and the pain as the lipstick polished nails sing hymns of salvation, glory be, glory do, boo-fucking-hoo. Jane smacks jack for spreading his legs when he sits. Nothing but bright light and glazed eyes, nothing but twisted truths and pregnant lies waiting to burst as we see decadence perform fellatio on the erect notes of the totalitarian tango.

What we see in the horizon, what rises from the streets, what comes crawling from the prehistoric ooze is the complete control and domination of our thoughts and of our speech. Our freedoms are being stolen by the social justice hivemind, a beast of biblical prophecies brought forth, a glance into the past: Victorian morals posing as a progressive push forward, a furthering of the women-are-wonderful effect. Men are the beast, women are the gods. Men do all wrong, all the time. Women do no wrong, all the time. In the air, a whisper spreads: fare-thee-well, equality, enter now the totalitarian tango.

Boys Under Siege

 

Siege: “”a military operation in which enemy forces surround a town or building, cutting off essential supplies, with the aim of compelling the surrender of those inside.”


We saw from the last video that boys are under attack in schools.

How are they under attack? Well, they learn that

  1. Their sex has caused the world’s problems,
  2. That Men are privileged.
  3. That men are toxic and have oppressed women.
  4. That Men just need to step aside and let women run things, then things would be better.
  5. They learn that Boys are inherently inferior and simply need to try to be more like the girls.

These messages get expressed repeatedly both actively and passively. Often subtle but sometimes blatant. They are unmistakable and are forced upon the boys without any counterpoint or any option for them to challenge or argue. These are the default. To argue would be unheard of.  A third grader rarely argues with his teacher. She is queen and only speaks the truth. So boys are forced to shut up and accept the narrative that something is wrong with their sex.

Such hateful and persistent messages are hurtful and abusive to our boys. And yet no one complains.

What does it do to anyone who hears a constant drone of negative about their identity? Day in and day out you hear there is something inherently wrong with you. You are helpless since you have no way to respond. What does years of that do to a person?

There are several research driven ideas that help us understand the intensity these messages may have on boys. One is the concept of learned helplessness. In studies, animals have been given negative stimuli repeatedly without any opportunity to escape. After many repetitions the animals simply give up. They stop trying. Many are thinking this could be related to the origin of anxiety or depression. Could a similar principle be at play with boys and their involuntary exposure to hateful messages? It’s not a stretch to see how boys being bombarded with negative messages about their sex are put in a helpless position not unlike the learned helplessness situations. Might there be a cumulative effect?

Another research driven concept is that of the Stereotype Threat. An example of stereotype threat is the idea that girls are exposed to stereotypes when young that claim that girls are not so great at science and math. Some are thinking this early exposure may impact their later disinterest in sciences. Okay. Maybe so. But now think if that is true what sort of huge factor all of the anti-male messages that are being sent to boys might have on him? If the girls are negatively impacted by a minority message that they aren’t as good at math and science just imagine the impact of the multiude of misandrist messages boys receive. What might that do to them? Does anyone care? I don’t think so.

Then there is the element of self fulfilling prophecy.   When people hear negative ideas about them it increases the chances that those negatives will come to fruition. Think about all of the negatives boys hear about their sex and just stand back and imagine what impact that might have?

Keep in mind that we know that the brain has great plasticity, that is it can alter itself with the advent of new information. When children are young they are particularly susceptible to negative messages having an impact on their young brains. The research shows us that children who were abused suffer from a lack of myelonization of their axons. Many think that this is one of the causes of depression and anxiety. What they have also found is that physical abuse AND emotional abuse both have the same impact on the brain. Wouldn’t it be easy to characterize the many negative anti male messages that boys receive as being somewhat similar to emotional abuse? One definition of emotional child abuse is “The caregiver refuses to acknowledge the child’s worth.” Seems to me that this is similar to what boys hear every day. The brains of our young are sensitive to stressors.   It’s not a big leap to see that having one’s sex be disparaged on a regular basis is indeed a significant stressor.

The messages boys receive are a part of a huge double standard where boys are seen as the problem and girls are seen as the answer.  Another frame for double standards towards boys has to do with  the issue of  violence.

 

VIOLENCE

Yet another place you see this radical double standard is around the issues of violence. It has been a long standing requirement in our culture to demand boys not hit girls. Yeah, so be it. But in our increasingly feminist drenched schools something started happening more frequently. Girls started hitting boys. And what was the administrative response to this. Nothing. No one lifted a finger. Even when boys had the courage to complain to teachers that a girl had pinched, hit, pushed, slapped, or kicked him he was told to go to his seat and not complain. I have heard many boys say the same thing. When they hit there is immediate punishment, and when the girls hit there is nothing. No one cares.

It didn’t take long for some devious girls to realize they could attack whenever they wished. And they did. While most girls would never do such a thing, those who chose to attack under the protection of the gynocentric double standard made the boys lives very difficult. What did the boys learn from this interaction? They learned that You, as a boy, do not deserve protection. Your pain is not important. It’s not as important as the girls. Shut up and quit complaining. Sound like emotional abuse to you? It does to me.

It’s important to note here that though it was a minority of girls doing this, the majority of girls did not call out the perps and would generally say nothing. They were willing to sell the boys down the river and allow the aggressive girls to do their evil.

So how do you think that feels for boys? They likely have superior strength but when attacked they are required to stand down. Pretty tough lesson for a little guy don’t ya think? I wonder sometimes if the situation was reversed how would girls respond? Boys could hit them when they wanted and they could neither complain or defend themselves. If they went to the teacher they would be ignored. Hmmmm I’m guessing they would not handle it so well. I marvel at how the majority of boys have learned to deal with this blatant and hateful double standard.

So the boys are getting an early gynocentric message. You better protect girls and you, little sir, are not worth protection. Just shut up and go to war.

I think it is time to allow boys to defend themselves.

If this double standard only happened in schools it might not seem so sinister but this pattern of allowing women’s violence towards men while disallowing men’s violence towards women is a common occurrence in our culture. Just look at the undercover youtube videos showing public reaction to a man being violent towards a female partner. Everyone looks up, many challenge the violence, both men and women, some men come and physically stop the man, some go farther and are violent against the offending man, while others just call the police. But what happens when it goes the other way and it’s the women hitting the men? We see something different, much like the girls reaction to the girl hitting the boy in school, No one gets upset. In fact many people laugh and point. They make fun of HIM. You know, the victim. Can you see how this is the same dynamic we saw in the schools? It’s just played out on a different level.

Possibly the worst example of this double standard is the judicial lenience towards women who have murdered their husbands. You know, she says he abused her so the judge says, well, it’s okay that you killed him. And she gets probation. Try that one the other way around and see how far you get with this horrible double standard. You know the drill.

And to top it off there is yet another level for this hateful double standard of tolerating female violence. Our congress nearly 25 years ago passed the Violence Against Women Act. Notice it doesn’t say violence against people, it ignores men who are victims of female violence and focuses only on the women who are hit by men. Same thing right? Just note that due to this gynocentric pattern we now have over 2000 shelters for women who have been victimized by men but only a handful of shelters for the men. And yes the actual violence of women towards men is nearly equal to that of men. Gynocentrism runs silent and it runs deep.

I have talked with legislators about these double standards and I’ve talked with feminists about this. Both have the same attitudes. We are concerned about men and boys, but… and then fill in the blank. I think the same bullshit responses would come from the people in public places who laughed at the men being victimized. They would not see their own bias and duplicity in such a double standard. They would think they were doing the right thing. And that is just how teachers and administrators respond when questioned about this. But, but, but? We care about boys! You may think that but the evidence says something else.

I’d like to bring up one more item related to the double standard before we close. Actually in the next part of this series we will be examining the research that backs up our earlier discussions. One of those studies is particularly vexing. It shows that boys, by the age of seven believe that they are not as smart as girls. It also shows that girls feel they are smarter than boys and come to that conclusion even earlier than the boys(4 years old). Here’s a quote from an article about the study:

“Researchers also found that the children believed adults shared the same opinion as them, meaning that boys felt they were not expected by their parents and teachers to do as well as girls and lost their motivation or confidence as a result.”

Somehow, our boys, by the age of 7, get the idea they are not as smart as girls. Why are we not panicking over this? But people, educators and our legislators simply snooze on.

Of course this is not simply a result of our schools but they obviously play a part. How did our children get to the point that they both think boys are not as smart? What messages are they getting and why? I remember when I was in elementary school in the 1950’s. The boys would tell the girls they were smarter and the girls would tell the boys, no, they were smarter. It was all in fun and we all knew that there were some really smart girls and also some really smart boys. We tossed these ideas at each other in the same way we would accuse the opposite sex of having cooties. But somehow now this game has changed remarkably. We now condone crap like “boys are stupid throw rocks at them” we laugh at the “girls rule and boys drool” taunts. Somehow our culture is convincing our children that girls are smarter. This is a problem

Just imagine that the research had found the opposite, that girls and boys both believed that boys were smarter. There would be a national campaign in no time. You likely remember that this was actually the rally cry of feminists to gain millions in funding in the 1990’s, her self esteem is low. Girls didn’t think they were smart. Get her help! Now!  But since it is boys, no one cares.

Our schools have become lopsided institutions that favor girls. Girls preferences rule the roost, schools are about everyone getting a trophy, sitting still and about feelings. This is girlville. It has even been found that boys grades are dependent upon how much they act like girls! Act like girls and you get better grades! We will see that and many other research studies in the final video of this series.

A letter to the boys & young men of America.

A response to mass shooting in Florida.

The bodies aren’t even cold yet and already you are being blamed.

Yes you.

All of you.

The boys and young men who will grow up to become one half of America’s future.
Once again, due to society’s failure to raise you, to teach you, to properly guide you on your path to manhood, your mere existence is being held responsible for seventeen more deaths—this time in Florida, and once again, at a school. The headlines of the last few days say it all:

  “Guns don’t kill people; men and boys kill people, experts say”
  -USA TODAY

  “Michael Ian Black reacts to Florida shooting: Boys are broken”
  -New York Daily News

  “How Gun Violence And Toxic Masculinity Are Linked, In 8 Tweets”
  -The Huffington Post

  “Toxic white masculinity: The killer that haunts American life”
  -Salon

  “Toxic Masculinity Is Killing Us”
  -The Boston Globe

  “Toxic Masculinity Is Killing Us”
  -Harpers Bazaar

  “Don’t Blame Mental Illness for Mass Shootings; Blame Men”
  -Politico

In the handful of decades I’ve been alive, I’ve seen America shift from a culture of responsibility to one of blame. We don’t solve problems anymore. We cry, we pray for, we seek to find closure, and then finally, slaughter a sacrificial lamb for our sins. When I was young and Columbine happened, that lamb was Marilyn Manson and video games. Before that, it was D&D and Twisted Sister. These days, though, as body counts continue to rise and excuses continue to vanish, the lamb America has chosen to sacrifice is you. Rather than take responsibility for the seeds we’ve sown, the culture we built, and the disaster you’ve been left to inherit, we as a nation have chosen to lie to ourselves. To listen and believe those who claim that the answer is simple: “Boys are simply born bad.”

As an aging Gen Xer watching this tragedy unfold, I can’t help but look back at my youth and realize we were the dry run for this “crisis of masculinity” as the media likes to call it. In my time I’ve watched as fathers were pushed out of the home, separated from their children, and their role in society debased and devalued. Like you, I was taught male behavior was bad behavior. That I was broken and needed to be fixed. Drugs, therapy, mass socialization were required to save me from my most innate instincts—

—the need compete.

—the drive to create.

—the urge to protect.

—the desire for female affection.

Like you, I was told these instincts were not only wrong, but dangerous. That due to my Original Sin of being born a boy, I was destined to mature into a lustful monster and an oppressor of women. All this was burned into me before I even reached college, where campus policy actually assumed all men to be rapists waiting to happen.

It isn’t hard to see how we got here, to an age when America is more than willing to sacrifice its boys. To quote Fight Club, “We’re a generation of men raised by women.” And the women who raised my generation had a saying: All men are pigs. But there’s another saying those same women were enamored with and that is: The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

So here we are, coming close to fifty years of single mothers raising their boys as if they were animals. Two generations of young men raised to believe they’re broken, immoral, and dangerous. That their natural state, if left unchecked and unmedicated, is a sexual ticking time bomb of rape and abuse. Half a century of academia peddling a grim version of history that holds your gender personally responsible for all the wrongs ever to have happened in the world. And a press, that at this very moment, is blaming YOU for every school shooting to have ever occurred.

After all this, how could there not be a crisis of masculinity?

So to the boys and young men of America, believe me when I say it isn’t you who should be apologizing for the state of our world today. This mess was set in motion long before you were born.

You are not bad.

You are not broken.

You are not inherently evil or a sexual abuser in waiting.

You are boys who were robbed of your right to be men.

All your life you’ve been told to act, think, and behave like women. To suppress your passions, your pride, your need to compete and drive to achieve.

Now society is crumbling around us.

Feminizing boys didn’t make better men. It’s resulted in broken homes and shattered families and record suicide rates. It’s destroying any notion of a healthy partnership between men and women, and is pushing us ever closer to total collapse of gender relations.

Boys, we don’t need you to be like women, the world has plenty of women, already.

What the world needs now more than ever is for you to be men.

For you to grow-up, to grow strong, and do what men do.

For it is men’s strength and determination that tamed the wilderness, built civilization, and has kept the world fed despite all predictions we’d all die starving before the year 2000. It’s men’s curiosity that lead us to explore the oceans, to conquer space, and peer into the tiniest of microcosms of the human body. It was men who built the cities we inhabit, the luxuries we enjoy, the medicines that keep us alive. Men built the road, the plumbing, the electrical grid, the phone in your hand, the internet it’s connected to.

Men have always been innovators, explores, defenders, and leaders.

But most importantly, men have always been fathers.

So to the boys and young men of America, please read this and take every word to heart.

The world needs you.

The Truth about Fake News – Here’s a Hint: It’s the Mainstream Media

twainMark Twain became the editor of a newspaper in Virginia City Nevada in 1862. He was less than fond of the coroner/judge in the town. He thought of him as pompous and decided he would play a little trick on him. There had been a rash of interest in all sorts of recently discovered petrified objects. So Twain, finding that obsessive trend ridiculous wrote a story which he later stated was meant to be a humorous “string of roaring absurdities.” It was about a petrified man supposedly found in the hills of Nevada and it poked fun at a figure who’s name was remarkably similar to the pompous coroner/judge. lol Much to Twain’s surprise the story was taken seriously. Not only did people miss the satirical hoax entirely, the story started being printed in newspapers around the U.S. Within a short time the story went viral (for those days) and was printed in newspapers in Europe and beyond. Twain made sure to send each copy he received from newspapers around the world to the coroner/judge. Some reports say that there were wheelbarrows of papers on a regular basis.

People both in Twain’s time and through much of the 20th century have been very susceptible to believing anything in print. If it is in their newspaper, they believe it. Period. Even if it is a story about a petrified man. If the story is repeated multiple times it becomes fact.

Twain learned just how powerful this tendency is. In today’s world we can multiply that for the TV news. People have had a tendency to automatically assume what they see on TV news as being fact and will defend their newfound facts with great vigor. “I saw it on TV!”

In the late 1940’s Harry Truman won the presidential election. The morning after the election he held up a newspaper bearing the erroneous headlinetruman declaring victory for his opponent. This has become an iconic image. Even people who were not alive during that time recognize the picture. Why? Because it was an example of the media getting it totally wrong and that was so unexpected that it was held up as being incredible. People trusted everything the media said and were shocked that they actually made a mistake.

Fast forward to the 21st century and things have changed in a big way. Now instead of people being shocked if the media makes a mistake we have the mainstream media (MSM) purposefully creating what is being called “Fake News.” These are basically intentional misrepresentations about the identity of someone that members of the media, for whatever reason, don’t like.

It’s so commonplace now that even the president of the United States created a Fake News story about Fake News. President Obama now pushes a false narrative that blames social media and independent news sources for Fake News.

We now have the facts. It is neither of those, it is the MSM. It is CNN , MSNBC, WAPO, NYTimes, and just about every other mainstream news outlet that has been pushing Fake News and pushing it hard.

Wikileaks proved this beyond a doubt. But it is not only the election’s Fake News that the media has created. Just look at the push to repeatedly frame police as racists resulting in our present string of cop killings. The media has convinced many in the public that racist police forces are out to kill black people. That disinformation is pushing some on the fringe to protest and advocate the killing of cops.

Or have a look at how men’s human rights activists have been framed as misogynist, racist and homophobic. If you want to see the media in action just have a look at how a men’s conference was covered. You can see the actual presentations here by a caring and intelligent group that was calling for compassion for men. Then have a look at nearly all of the misrepresentations, belittling and name calling from multiple mainstream media sources here, here, or here.


Fake News is a False Allegation Racket

Do you notice a trend here? Whether it is cops, men’s rights activists or political candidates the game is the same. Accuse those you don’t like of being racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic or some other negative that attacks their character. Don’t dismantle their views or opinions with facts, attack them with false accusations which of course are nearly impossible to disprove.

This kind of propaganda has worked for ages, The targets are often tied down by the straight jacket of political correctness. People, however, are starting to catch on to the game and are fighting back. The retaliation back has triggered the media to open the floodgates, to double and triple down on their efforts, accelerating their false accusations.

They have nearly reached a saturation point where they are making so many accusations of racism, sexism and many other isms that they are getting diminishing returns. People are fed up with their irresponsible bullying. One needs to only look at the polls about trust in media to see the latest trend. What once was a 72% approval rate in 1976 has now plummeted to a 14% approval rating for republicans, 30% for independents and 51% for democrats. And those polls were before the election. I’m guessing those numbers will be lower in the next polls.

Now through Wikileaks we are sure that the MSM has been far from honest in their publishing of “news.” Wikileaks shows us that the MSM has intentionally tried to create narratives in order to manipulate and indoctrinate people into believing the things that the MSM wants them to believe. This falls under the rubric of propaganda. This presents us with a lethal problem, the very thing that had been automatically trusted by the people is being fed to them as a false narrative that is simply the media’s personal version of the truth. Their biased version leaves out alternate viewpoints leaving their readers to endlessly travel in circles around a Mobius strip of news.

 

The Lies Die Hard

Fake News leaves many trusting and gullible folks in a state of ignorance which, if challenged, they defend fiercely. After all, they learned what they know from trusted sources, right?

They shame and shun alternate viewpoints rather than consider them. They dwell in certainty about having the “truth.” It’s a dangerous trend that forms a roadblock to discussion and understanding.

We have heard of the MSM leaking debate questions to only one candidate. We have heard of the MSM asking one side to edit their articles and suggest when they should be published. We have even seen the MSM ask one side for the questions they should ask the opposing candidate in the debate! At this point it is clear that the MSM has chosen sides and set their agenda accordingly.

The trust of the people has been busted and abused badly. Many recognize that. Some don’t, and they are autonomically following the deceptive media pied piper right into a brick wall.

 

A Negative Narrative – Donald Trump is Dangerous

A part of the Fake News syndrome is the MSM working hard to create narratives, to paint their favorite candidates in a good light and to do the opposite to the ones they don’t want. Let’s have a look at the Washington Post and the methods they put to use of choosing sides and creating false narratives.

WAPO was obviously in favor of Hillary Clinton and pushed positive stories about her and her campaign whenever they could. They described her with glowing terms. But they painted a very different and nefarious picture of her opponent. How did they do this?

Lots of ways, but one that is obvious and easy to search and observe is the narrative WAPO pushed to claim Donald Trump was dangerous. Notice this is not a disagreement about his views it is clearly an attack on his identity, who he is. Just look at this image of the google search for “trump is dangerous”:

Note that there are 27,000 entries for this search term. That should give you an idea of how many times the Post pushed this agenda in their articles.

What is the result of the Post’s and most other large circulation newspapers and major network TV stations attempt to demonize Trump? It is obvious. After his election Hillary supporters went bonkers. How could someone who was so dangerous be elected president? These folks acted as though this must be the end of the world with the “not my president” meme’s, the hand wringing, the violence, the destruction of property, the beating of Trump supporters, and on and on. These people were crazed, and still are. I am suggesting that they have been set up by the media to see this in such an insane manner. They have been brainwashed to believe that Donald Trump is dangerous to them. That they personally are threatened. For a good review of why this hysteria is bogus see this powerful youtube video

That is just one search term. Let’s try another since the media portrayed Trump in so many negative ways. Let’s search on “unfit to be president” and see what comes up.

Again, we see the same themes. Trump is unfit, another way of saying he is dangerous to the American voter. Note that it is not questioning his views or policies it is simply saying he, personally, is unfit. Something is wrong with him. This is a personal attack on his identity, not an attack on his viewpoints or policies. This attack is hammered time and again. This one had over 3000 results. Multiply that number by the number of times readers saw that message and it’s easy to see it is in the multi millions. Then multiply that times the number of other newspapers and media outlets doing the same thing. Now think back to Twains petrified man and how that story went around the world. It’s easy to see how the Fake News of the MSM has been a major player in the brainwashing and resulting troubles that have erupted since the election. They presented as fact that Donald Trump was unfit and dangerous and the gullible public ate it up. You can’t even talk to these people and try and reason with them about the things that Trump actually said. They are bordering on insane in their allegiance to lies. It is simply mind blowing and terribly sad.

The post had numerous ways to paint Trump as a bad man. One of the most disgusting was their portrayal of him as having mocked a disabled man. Let’s tell the story of how they did this. (for an excellent and more detailed accounting of this incident see here)

Donald Trump gave a speech where he claimed that there were people dancing on their rooftops celebrating the 9/11 collapse of the Twin Towers. WAPO took exception to his claims and said there was no evidence to support such a claim. The WAPO and their “fact-checkers” basically said Trump was lying. Trump proceeded to show them a WAPO article written shortly after 9/11 that in fact, described the dancing on rooftops that he had claimed. The WAPO obviously looked stupid, incompetent and wrong. At this point the WAPO should have simply taken a bow and said that they had failed in researching thoroughly but still feel that Trump had exaggerated the number of those celebrating. But that is not what they did. They sought out the original reporter who had written the article and got him to say that he couldn’t remember how many there were but it surely wasn’t as many as Trump had claimed. This was an obvious attempt to simply cover their butt rather than take any responsibility. Trump mentioned this obvious dodge in a speech and made fun of the reporter saying “I can’t remember I can’t remember” while flailing his arms around in the air. Then it takes a sinister turn. It turns out the reporter had a congenial abnormality that paralyzed his misshapen right hand. He was disabled. The WAPO and others trumpanddisabbledjoined in the fray in claiming Trump was making fun of a disabled person. They knew this claim was false. The man’s disability was that he couldn’t move his hand. His disability was not anything like the spastic movements that Trump had portrayed. But that didn’t stop them. The media then took a still photo of the reporter with his deformed hand showing and then stopped the action of Trumps flailing which showed Trumps hand in a similar position to this man’s disability. That was enough to convince their readers that Trump was a bastard. This country has a habit of defending the underdog and in this case it was clear: a billionaire versus a disabled man. No contest. Trump loses.

What they didn’t show you was that Trump used the same flailing hand movements in the same speech and other speeches. In fact he used those movements to make fun of Cruz and also a General. Both are not disabled but got the same arm flailing. It is obvious to anyone who saw the entire speech and knew the entire story that they were framing him in order to demonize him and mask their irresponsible “fact checking.”

 

Outright BIAS

Here’s a quote from the Washington Posts article The Posts View on Nov 2, 2016 by the Washington Post Editorial Board. Can you see a little bias here?

We believe, as we have said, that Ms. Clinton is well-prepared to serve as president. But even voters who disagree — who believe that Ms. Clinton is unqualified or ethically distasteful — cannot realistically argue that she represents a danger to the republic. Mr. Trump is such a danger. Only by forgetting or ignoring what he has told us could Americans decide otherwise.

It is clear that the Post has chosen sides. And lost.

What can be done? Trump fights back.

 This is the first time a candidate has challenged the media directly and called them liars. I think this was a shock to the Post and other media moguls who have grown used to people simply not trying to fight back. The usual response is when one is falsely accused by big media in our restrictive politically correct environment people will simply start apologizing and groveling. But Trump is not your average bear. He attacked and attacked hard. He repeated his view that they are liars and many people were enlivened by someone finally challenging the bullying media. When he would point to the lies of the mainstream media the crowds would roar! People are very tired of the media bullies and of political correctness and Trump gives them someone who is unafraid of both.

Having never been challenged, the media had a great deal to lose. Now not only was Trump calling them out, wikileaks was regularly exposing their bias and fake news. They knew that if Trump won they would also lose and be scattered in disarray. They were openly backing Hillary and were openly anti-Trump. If the man who was calling them liars won the presidency their stock would go down and go down big time.

And of course, that is what happened. But now a week’s worth of disarray and the WAPO and others are fighting back. After making a career of creating fake news and being exposed repeatedly as liars they now take a different approach. “Hey. Why don’t we take a page from the Alinsky handbook and accuse others what we are guilty of?” Yes! That is what we will do.

So now we see the liars and obfuscators pointing the finger at independent news sites that actually have integrity and have been struggling to get their message out in an honest manner. So what fakenews1happens? The liars accuse the little guys of creating fake news! The big media bullies call in their corporate pals from Facebook and Google to sift through the various independent news sites and censor the very people who have been providing the truth! Obama steps in and offers the bullies support. What a tag team. They are working to portray themselves as the purveyors of truth but anyone with a bit of sense can see through this masquerade. Darth Vader could not have thought of a more sinister plan.

We need to not let up on holding the media accountable. The only way out of this is for them to admit their dishonesty and their intentional misleading and lying. They have consistently broken a sacred trust and they know it. Without an admission they will hide behind their big money masks. Without an admission of guilt they will keep those who have been brainwashed in the chains of their untruth.

We need to stop this nonsense. Support your alternative news source. Give them money. Give them pageviews. Give them your vocal support. At the same time attack the MSM bullies and keep reminding them that they are the liars. Don’t let up. Don’t buy their papers, don’t watch their programs and certainly don’t buy products from anyone who advertises with them. Tell the advertisers you aren’t buying their products due to their being aligned with big news. Let the mainstream die on the vine and watch places like Breitbart, Drudge, NextNews Network, Info Wars, Stefan Molyneux, Mike Cernovich, Paul J Watson,  and so many others become your main source of news.

Review: The Red Pill Movie — compassion and choice for men and boys

{Disclaimor: I played a small part in the Red Pill Movie so I am sure that impacts my review. I was able to see a screening in Fairfax VA on November 1, 2016.}

The Red Pill is an amazing documentary that accomplishes an incredible task. It portrays men as human beings who deserve compassion and choice.

It first helps the viewers to see that those bringing the message of men needing compassion and choice are not women haters, not Neanderthals and not unloving oafs but are people who are concerned about the humanity of both men and women and have already taken the red pill. These folks know that men, like women, are deserving humans. People like Elam, Farrell, Pizzey, Crouch, Esmay, Hayward and Angelucci all are shown not as oafs but as caring people concerned about the humanity of men and boys.

With that task started the harder work begins. The work of showing that men and boys face hardship and discrimination and fail to engender compassion from the vast majority of our culture.

The film accomplishes this by describing the inhumanity that men and boys have experienced and the concerted societal effort to ignore their suffering. It succeeds in doing this through graphics, through talk, through human stories and through statistics. It powerfully builds the case that men and boys are silently suffering in a world that sees the needs and pains of women and girls as a call to action and the pain and needs of men and boys as something to ignore. The message and theme of men’s disposability is gradually brought to life along with men’s issue after men’s issue that is driven home with undeniable statistics and powerful personal stories.

red.pill_All of this likely leads to an audience that is unsettled at best. Their blue pill comfort is being shaken and challenged. Two opposing elements come crashing together. On one hand, the viewer’s worldview has likely been that men have it all, have all the power and privilege and don’t need/deserve special help or even compassion. But on the other hand they are now in the midst of seeing the Red Pill message which is elegantly and honestly challenging that worldview by exposing the hardships of men and boys and how that is very often ignored. The unavoidable dilemma is that the viewer realizes they too have been a part of this global ignoring of male pain. These two opposing forces can’t coexist. Something has to give. This is where Jaye truly shines. She seems to have predicted the audiences’ angst response and gives them a balm: she tells them about her own ambivalence, her own disbelief and struggles, and her own discomfort with this new vision of men. She intersperses what she calls video diaries throughout the film and they show her process over the 2-3 years of filming of slowly struggling with the red pill and how hard a thing this is to swallow. I am certain that most of her audience is having the exact same ambivalence, disbelief, and discomfort that Jaye so aptly portrays in the video diaries. This gives them a model, another human being who has a similar struggle. My guess is that having Jaye as a model in these video diaries makes their task of incorporating such a large dose of new information that contradicts their beliefs a bit easier. When they see a very attractive young blond feminist who is openly questioning her own previous beliefs it normalizes their own experience of the same. The audience is at a disadvantage since they do not have 2-3 years to process, they only have the less than 2 hours of the film. Dissonance. My guess is that the end product of the video diary approach is that it helps the audience swallow and process a bit of their own bias. It likely softens things a bit and it does so in a way that facilitates their feeling stunned and minimizes their rage and anger. Being stunned breeds discussion and questions of oneself and others, being furious tends to breed separation and denial.

There will be plenty of folks who can’t psychologically tolerate the message of the Red Pill even with the helpful video diaries. These folks will likely be furious after seeing the film. That is both fine, expected, and welcomed. Better furious than ignorant. Cassie Jaye has given them a good shot to come out of it with questions and feeling at least a little more intact. I’m sure their mileage will vary based on their own level of personal development.

Jaye also interviews feminists. Quite a few of them. Their words likely grate on the viewer’s psyche due to the viewer’s brand new realization of some men’s issues. The feminists tend to disregard men and boys and overtly contradict the very thing the film has been teaching. When you have seen clearly how men and boys are getting very little compassion it’s much easier to see the stark contrast of the feminist message of blaming men. It makes it very easy to see how their feminist world view is myopic and severely limited. Perhaps an even larger impact on the viewer came from the scenes of protestors trying to keep men’s issues from even being discussed. And then there was Big Red. The people I spoke with after seeing the movie unanimously referred to Big Red as extraordinarily enlightening to the hate that exists. The clips of the protestors and of Big Red were very effective in helping the viewer to understand the depth of their hatred and misandry.

The protestors chanted such hatred as “Fuck Warren Farrell.” They accused him of being a rape apologist, a misogynist, and pulled fire alarms to sabotage his talk. What was the issue they were so enraged over? Farrell was to talk on boys and suicide. Boys and suicide.   Knowing this it becomes clear that their upset was likely not about Farrell but more related to simply wanting to stop anyone from discussing men’s issues such as boys and suicide. That is a forbidden topic to them. Why? Because it challenges their worldview and they will have none of it and will do what they can to stop it. They are like flatworlders who attacked those who said the world was round. This is obvious in the film but what I want to point out now is that we are seeing the exact same dynamic from people protesting this film. Watch the movie and see that it is only about men’s and boy’s issues. That’s it. But the protests of the film, like the Farrell protestors,  are not about the content, they are personal attacks on the cast and on the director. Watch the reviews, or the attempted bannings of this movie and you will see this dynamic repeated over and over again. The worldview is challenged and the response is to make personal attacks, just like “Fuck Warren Farrell” or now “Fuck the hateful misogynist Red Pill”.   It is obvious to even a casual observer that what is driving this frantic screaming has nothing to do with the cast or the director or even the content of the film and has everything to do with the protestors’ lack of compassion for men and boys and their fear of anything that might negate their feminist ideology. Here’s a tip: when you run into someone attacking this movie just ask them if they are having a hard time having a little compassion for boys and men. That cuts through to the reality of their upset.

The film flowed easily for me. In its nearly two hours time I never looked at my watch and was engaged in the flow on screen. So many issues were presented clearly and accurately. I was especially moved by the section on circumcision. I wont’ spoil it for you but will just say that is was a powerful use of cinema to get a message across and will likely open many eyes about the barbarism of circumcision and the default disregard for the pain and trauma of little boys.

I loved this film but if I had one nit to pick it would have to be the omission of the role of gynocentrism. The film does a great job of showing that men and boys have faced difficulties and their problems have been ignored but it fails to help the viewer understand why this might be. Yes, feminism is a problem but the question is what is fueling feminism? Why has it been so successful? Why has it been so easy to over run the needs of men and boys while tending to the needs of women and girls? The answer lies in gynocentrism which has been around for eons as compared to feminism which is a newcomer and basically a parasite of gynocentrism. In a nutshell, gynocentrism is about providing and protecting women and children at the expense of men. You know, the old “women and children first” meme. This is not a totally bad thing since it has been what has built our culture and many others for thousands of years. It does however impact our interest in women’s issues and our turning away from men’s issues. If you are curious about your own degree of gynocentrism you can try an exercise here. If you want to learn more about this I wrote an article Gynocentrism 2.0 that goes into much more detail. (or a youtube video here) Maybe the next documentary will explain this in detail.

Jaye has had the guts/balls to make this film and tell her story, the men’s story, the feminist’s story and let it all stand on its own. When she interviews both MHRA’s and feminists she doesn’t take sides, she lets people talk. She doesn’t interrupt or challenge or try to change minds. She just listens. Through most of the film she just puts the story into the film. This is a gift to the viewer. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to her for this. When you see this movie you will likely join me in that feeling and importantly, will be left to decide on your own.

Jaye has produced a ground breaking documentary that exposes the default lack of compassion for the needs and problems of men and boys. In some ways the film is a litmus test. It will accurately tell you how much compassion you have for boys and men. Those who flail their arms in the air and scream patriarchy, patriarchy, patriarchy are letting you know that they failed the litmus test. They are lacking in compassion for boys and men.

Thank you Cassie Jaye for having the courage to make this critically important film. Thanks too for the unmistakable message that underlies the Red Pill:  Men Are Good!
