Review of My Guesses for 2017

 

This is it!

My Last official act of 2017. This is the one where I look back at this article

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2017/01/09/my-guesses-for-2017/

And we look at how well or how badly I did. I’ll admit I did review this article a couple of weeks back and it didn’t look like I’d done all that badly. Unlike last year when Donald Trump threw a wrench into the guessing this year no such thing occurred. But I know for a fact I got some of the guesses wrong and I think I bombed out on a couple of them. Like I said I’m doing this again and writing down the results as they appear. So while I think I did well I could’ve stunk up the joint.

Let’s the massacre of my supposed high intelligence begin!

  1. People hold their breath for President Donald Trump

Yeah, there’s one that didn’t happen! Antifa Riots, Million woman march and open declaration of war by Feminists and Regressives. trump-4-805x452

Yep, the regressives didn’t even wait for Donald Trump to make a mistake they just went ahead and started attacking blindly. In fact, it was speculated that if this was what it was going to be like for the next four years well…god help us all.

People did calm down, Antifa lost its teeth but the attacks on Trump continue.

But for this guess BOY did I ever get this one wrong!

The Establishment may attempt to distract us from the ever-widening internal culture war with an outside distraction.

There was some talk about North Korea, there were the usual (ever increasing) terrorist attacks in Europe and a bombing in Syria. The Administration didn’t attempt to ramp up any wars and neither did the Regressives attempt to throw any crumbles and bobbles our way for us to look at. They went and stayed on the offensive to the best of their ability. At least until their credibility also started to take serious hits.

In hindsight the mainstream media and the establishment wanted us to pay attention to them this year. They got what they wanted and now they’re in free fall just like the rest of the regressives are.

But for the sake of this blog, wrong again. Mostly because 1 and 2 are tied together to make it so.

 3. Transparent attempts to crack down or censor the internet mainly alternative news sites.

YES! Got one right and boy did I ever hammer this one out the ballpark.

What stands out for me most though is the intentional lying about Pewdiepie

Got this one right (Finally)

 4. Gamergate (or a form of it) is not dead back for round #2

Comicgate…Nuff said

Or you can just go to The Quartering to see what’s happening with Wizards of the Coast at the moment.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfwE_ODI1YTbdjkzuSi1Nag

Either way, I nailed this one!

  5. A Watering down of the Manosphere in general

This one is kind of hard to prove. MGTOW.com became the second largest site in the manosphere and A Voice for Men returned to its old prominence. More MGTOW, MRA, Red Pill, PUA etc sites got started up. An increase in size and attention will mean a larger variety of opinion thus a watering down. Nothing unexpected here so I’ll give myself a yes here.

6. A rise in the extreme right inside the movement

I saw more Anti-Semitism this year than I had in the five years before. I had one of these guys start to follow me around the manosphere to keep justifying his beliefs to me. I personally had to declare that any jew bashing (Anti-Semitism) on my Facebook group would get you booted. You know it’s getting out of control when guys like Turd Flinging Monkey have to start making videos specifically addressing this issue.

The comments section got so bad here that YouTube had to shut down both comments and ratings. Like I said in my guesses for 2018 blog, this is the ugly stepchild of the manosphere and it needs to be dealt with SOON!

Got this one right though.

7. More prominent divisions rising inside the Manosphere

The rise of the Alt-Right is proof enough for that. We also had people on our side attacking each other. There was a row between Candace Owens and Computing Forever

There was also another one that appears to have removed Kraut and Tea from the YouTube community for now too.

Just to make it clear on both of these people. Candace Owens took down Social Autopsy for me that’s sufficient. Dave Cullen had a higher standard and it’s his channel so he has the right to say that there. Kraut and Tea on the other hand? I wasn’t involved never really followed it. I liked most of what Kraut and Tea did and I hope he comes back. Don’t know enough about what happened to make a call on it.

I can say I got this one right 5 for 7 now, not bad considering how badly I tanked at the start!

   8. Attacks on MGTOW happen with more frequency and ferocity

Well first we had this

Both of these stupid idiots started their channels in 2017. But for more example, we had this and a few others post up as well

This particular video got torn to shreds in the comments not to mention Turd Flinging Monkey did an epic takedown of this video.

Now this guy was really disappointing because he usually has an idea what he’s talking about

The real disappointment here was how he pinned this to the top of this video.

Styxnhammer

Yeah I pretty much say I got this one right

9. I’m not a Feminist or I’m not and/or antifeminist pronouncements rise quickly

This actually tapered off in 2017. Never mind that it’s picked up in a large way at the start of 2018. In 2017 this didn’t happen, likely because Feminists were more active and got more than a little help from the mainstream media

Got this one wrong

  10. Yet ANOTHER months-long period of feminist and/or SJW stupidity

There were moments where it looked like there was going to be something like this. The Mainstream Media though did engage in epic levels of stupidity and did have periods where they did the same thing that other branches of the regressive community did.

Does the mainstream media count as SJW? I’m going to give myself a tentative yes on this. Again though as the start of 2018 has indicated the regressives seem hell bound to lose all the ground they gained in 2017.

1/2 point on this one

11. Very clear signs that Feminism is losing 

Had the year ended before Harvey Weinstein got taken down it was really starting to look like this was going to happen.

09xp-weinstein-master768-v3

Once this happened Feminists moved in a took Hollywood without much of fight, even going so far as to set up a potential McCarthy like commission to investigate sexual abuse in Hollywood

Now once again it appears as though Feminists have managed to shoot themselves in the foot as 2018 started. This MAY prevent the sexual misconduct commission from becoming too authoritarian too quickly. Or they may attempt to speed this up because of events that started, time will tell.

Now since this is about 2017 and not 2018 I’m going to have to go wrong about this one.

 12. Things start getting violent

I’m just going to post up a few things about Antifa and let them speak for themselves

Battle of Berkeley

 

Yeah I know, sorry just had to post this.

Granted Antifa had lost most of their Mojo by mid-year. The violence didn’t extend through the entire year of 2017. Something for which I think we can all be grateful for. 2018 feels like a different beast, more like a kettle bomb going off from pressure at some point.

So yes I did get this one right, glad it slowed down towards mid-year though.

 13. Outrageous and Blatant Lies

From the mainstream media? Oh hell yes absolutely!

I mean there are so many examples of it that I couldn’t possibly post all the content so here’s a link to it instead

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Mainstream+Media+Lies+2017

14. Members of the various SJW factions start getting in trouble

Didn’t happen there were moments where it happened but you didn’t see the long hemorrhaging that had occurred inside regressive circles brought on by their own stupidity in 2017. UNLESS you cover mainstream news that’s another story altogether. For the sake of argument, I’m just going to put the mainstream media in the regressive camp here. They took the shots that the other factions couldn’t and probably wouldn’t have been able to take in 2017. As a result, they now are starting to find themselves in the same boat as them. If 2018 is any indication of 2017 for them it’s going to be a LONG year.

And oh yes got this one right

15. Bill Cosby Trial! 

Harvey Weinstein ended up being the goat that Bill Cosby was supposed to be. The Cosby trial was a virtual non-event. Luckily (If you’re a feminist) Harvey fell into the void quite nicely. He provided the impetus and push that Feminism had at the end of 2017 to pretty much take Hollywood and to destroy more than a few careers in the process. The price paid for doing this was totally unexpected though. It wasn’t anyone on the Deplorable side of the fence that got taken down. Instead, Feminists fed on their own that strategy of cannibalizing their own allies though appears to caught up to them already.

So yeah it sort of happened just not with the person I thought it was going to trigger it with. So I sort of got this one right in the actions but not the person.

  16. Virtue Signal Failure

Not as much as in 2016! But then again it would be very hard to ever duplicate 2016. Although based on what I’ve seen so far in 2018 it might be quite easily exceeded.

This one was going to be a pretty safe yes.

  17. Call on Donald Trump to be impeached or resign by the end of summer

Full History here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efforts_to_impeach_Donald_Trump

Impeach Trump

Yep got this one right. In fact, there was another attempt made just a few days ago.

  18. A Hard Right or Nationalist party wins a country (Or two) in Europe this year. 

Czech Election Won by Anti-Establishment Party Led by Billionaire

Well now, Thank You, Andrej Babis for getting the win for me!

So how did I do? 13 1/2 out of 18 75% well now not bad for a bunch of guesses. I want to discuss more though on how I went wrong and how no matter how accurate any kind of model is, even one where I’m just picking what I think and feel are the most likely reactions based on previous experience. Events can sometimes take strange twists. Or like what happened when Donald Trump put a wrench into a lot of my guesses in 2016 the actions of one individual can and do count.

What did I get wrong and why did I get them wrong in my not so humble opinion

Number 1 I got wrong because I assumed incorrectly that there would be the usual honeymoon period for Donald Trump nothing of the sort happened. In fact with a little hindsight it appears as though a lot of what occurred might have been artificially inflated

Number 2 I got wrong because I assumed once all the insanity got started it would escalate quickly. It didn’t in fact it came in two sections one at the start of the year from Antifa and the back end being provided by Feminism. North Korea had some moments for Donald Trump and the Administration but they didn’t use this to distract from the homeland

North Korea

Number 9 I got wrong there were a couple of factors. One being the move by social media sites to crack down on political wrong think. Another one was the apparent resurgence of feminism at the end of 2017. There’s also a case of a upswing will eventually top off. That doesn’t mean that they won’t start jumping on the wagon again in fact I’ve seen evidence of this starting in 2018

Number 10 I got wrong because while it did happen I didn’t expect that it would be the mainstream media and not the groups I expected.

Number 11 Never in my imagination did I ever expect that Feminists would devour their own allies for such a fleeting and temporary victory. Like I said before they captured Hollywood but have likely sped up their own demise

So I did OK, good thing nobody followed my guesses though I mean 75% is pretty good and worth a victory lap or two. I think it shows that my guesses can and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Guesses for 2018!

Each year in the manosphere is affected by the one that came before it! The enormous pushback by regressives in particular feminists was a reaction to the thrashing that Feminism and Regressives took in 2016

 

 

 

 

It wasn’t all that unexpected that there was going to be pushback in 2017. It started out with the Trump Protest and the open and blatant announcement by Ashley Judd

21-womens-march-dc-crowd.w710.h473.2x

We all suspected what was coming and it did. One friend of mine mid-year suggested that 2017 was like The Empire Strikes Back. Now he said that as a comparison only to have someone wave a sign proclaiming Feminism Strikes Back in December of 2017

US-POLITICS-TRUMP-INAUGURATION-PROTEST

Yeah, your eyes ain’t fooling you. This woman likened feminism to the Evil Empire and did so unabashedly.

Now I’m not going to get into a huge review of 2017 here that’s for another blog post which will also likely be up before the end of the year. Probably more than at any time since I got involved in the Manosphere is a year being so dictated by events that came before it. Each year generally has it’s stand-alone topics. The surprising emergence of Donald Trump and Brexit in 2016 for instance. 2018 though appears to be following a path that’s already been laid out for it. And that’s probably where I should start out with

My Guesses for 2018

As usual, no horoscopes, tarot cards, charts, graphs, crystal balls or any other form of divination used here. Just one guy looking at what’s going on and proceeding down the time tunnel and taking a somewhat informed guess as to what will happen. Of course, this means I’ll be wrong about some of these, but damn I like writing this article at the end of the year.

1. 2018 The Culture War Gets Hot

Culture War

2017 saw the Battle of Berkely, The Million Woman March, The Adpocalypse, Vidcon, #metoo, etc. Starting in late November 2017 we began to see #metoo begin to fray around the edges as feminists like Emily Lindin openly announced that they didn’t care about innocent men. Emily Lindin

We also saw women openly call out people like Emily Lindin publicly for the first time. These women weren’t Honey Badgers either. Yes, folks, a major FEMALE celebrity spoke out openly against feminism

Tomi Lahren

How do you want me to say this? Despite all of the alleged ‘gains’ made by feminists in 2017 they haven’t actually silenced or taken anyone out. They did manage to wound Milos Yiannopoulos but other than that nobody on our side of the fence got taken down. Seattle for Truth is headed for jail but that isn’t because of Feminist activism and Ethan Ralph is currently in prison but will be out early in 2018. Feminist males though were tossed under the bus in droves and from what I’ve been able to digest. Even men that were on the sidelines when it comes to this are now acutely aware that any woman from any time can come back with an allegation and ruin everything. If you think that won’t bring in more people to the manosphere then you’re deluded. So we’re stronger, so are they but they had to cannibalize themselves to do it.

Bottom line here is that now The Manosphere itself is growing and is now also aware and getting organized to hit back.

2. Silent Winter

Here’s the irony of all that wrote above. Feminists/SJW’s think they did well this year. I’m going to lay good odds that unlike the two or three previous years this year they’ll take a breath or two before coming out. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me that they’re relatively quiet until it’s time to start gearing up for the 2018 Mid-Terms in the US or…

3. Hey, you bastards I’m still here!

Hey you bastards

At some point in 2018, it’s going to dawn on Regressives, specifically Feminists that all those men they supposedly took out of the picture in 2017 weren’t the ones that counted. They’ll figure out that we’re still here and very much in the fight. When this does happen they’ll also realize that something else is also happening

4. #Metoo Starts to slow down and backfire

This started out well for feminists. This was the event that they had been waiting for to come out screaming and yelling as loudly as they can. Ironically enough I thought it was going to be Bill Cosby, not Harvey Weinstein that would be the cause of it. Not only that they didn’t even wait for any kind of legal verdict, they simply tried him via the media

It should be noted that Bill Cosby’s new trial is currently slated for April this year

Bill Cosby’s Retrial For 2004 Rape Gets Official April 2018 Start Date – Update

This though isn’t the main problem Jeremy Piven was accused and passed a lie detector test.

jeremypiven2-2

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5100023/Mr-Selfridge-star-Jeremy-Piven-passes-lie-detector-test.html

We already have feminists on the record that they don’t care about false accusations. These false accusations will start to pile up. Now in 2017 the media could pony up and cover up these shortcomings.

The mainstream media will ignore false accusations, the alternative media though won’t. This takes me to my next guess.

5. The Mainstream Media takes a serious run at the Alternate Media

Let’s not kid ourselves here the mainstream media is clearly starting to falter. In 2017 there was a long series of situations where the mainstream (cathedral) media dropped the ball with facts or in some cases outright lied.

This is likely going to continue, stories will get more desperate and less fact-based as ratings continue to go down and credibility continues to drop. You may even see a 2015/16 Feminist style bleeding out as one network then another constantly puts its foot in its mouth. While the alternative/internet media will continue to grow. With US midterms coming up later in the year, these organizations will be left with very little choice but to outright smear alternative media.

6. Alternative media starts to surge

This really isn’t shouldn’t be all that big of a surprise to anyone who reads this. This group is already doing well and will get even better as the year progresses. In fact, all that’ll really happen when mainstream media starts coming after them is that they’ll simply acquire more viewership. This tends to happen when you’re by and large reporting the truth as opposed to being a mouthpiece for the corrupt establishment. The Alternative media won’t be the only group that gets stronger and larger as the year progresses

7. All the Groups in the “Manosphere” Get Larger

Be they MRA, PUA, MGTOW, Red Pill, Anti Feminists, Anti SJW’s etc all of them should grow by leaps and bounds in 2018. You may have missed this but A Voice For Men has recently gone back to the numbers they had at the end of 2015. The MRM is far from dead no matter how many people in MGTOW say it is. avoiceformen.com 112817

That’s not to say that MGTOW and MRA’s are in a fight with each other. There’s a substantial amount of overlap between the two. Depending on the man and in some cases the woman, the group that most fits their preference will be the one they sign on with. It’s when these groups start getting larger than some of the so-called established sites for men that people will really start noticing.

8. MGTOW faces serious attacks

Up until now, MGTOW has been for the most part considered a fringe group. This is going to change as 2018 progresses. There are a number of reasons why MGTOW is arguably the most disliked faction inside the manosphere. I did a whole YouTube video as to why.

You have to keep in mind that this isn’t just going to be MGTOW that’ll be taking the heat. There’s going to be desperate attempts to tie all of these groups to less liked more radical factions fighting against the establishment.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/10/technology/culture/divided-we-code-red-pill/index.html

Although I’m not a huge fan of the Red Pill subreddit they had a response to the CNN piece

Expect a lot more of this.

9. Gearing up for Mid-Terms

All of these attacks you’re going to see? There’s a reason for them, that reason should be as obvious as the nose on your face. 2018 is a Mid-Term year, Democrats and Anti Trumpers everywhere want to focus on getting a majority in the house and/or The Senate. They won’t make any bones about why either they want to impeach Trump. Now at this point, it’s hard for me to guess which way these elections will go. No matter which way they go there’s a serious possibility that they’ll be in an unwinnable position. You see even if they do succeed in capturing the house it’ll still require time to get an impeachment going. Donald Trump though isn’t the only player on the board. The Regressives by the fall of 2018 may not have the cultural capital left to take on both Trump and the ‘Deplorables’ at the same time.

171229130634-donald-trump-12-15-2017-full-169

If they do get control of the House then most of their energy will be put into his impeachment. Which won’t succeed if they fail assassination isn’t out of the question as the situation with the regressives continues to deteriorate in 2018.

10. Culture war gets hotter

Magic The Gathering, Comic Books, Hollywood, MetalGate even some of the lesser-known artistic groups either have or will reach tipping points in regards to Cultural Marxists telling them how to conduct themselves. More of these groups are going to organize and start fighting back as 2018 rolls on.

11. Hollywood starts to feel the heat

Hollywood_Sign_(Zuschnitt)

This sexual misconduct investigation will likely morph into something closer to the 50’s style of McCarthyism that saw performers and creators career ruined. The level of originality and creativity is already at an all-time low in Hollywood will continue to go down. But not before there’s a brief and hopeful soft bounce upwards as more female directors will get their chance later on in 2018.

Oceans8

What you’re likely to see is more Feminist style grandstanding and the new powers in Hollywood learn nothing from what happened to the Video Game, Comic Book, Spec Fiction and MTG power players have or will find out. That it’s not a very good idea to insult or lecture your potential audience

Ironic that it was just 30 years ago that we were LOLing at the Russians and Eastern Bloc’s lack of creativity and dullness. But if you look at some of the fashion shows you’ve seen recently you may have noticed a trend.

Here’s the frightening part they’re taking themselves very seriously just like in The Wendy’s commercial I posted up earlier.

12. At least one of the Hollywood Studios gets in financial trouble

You really need to take a look at some of the movies coming out. Some of them are pretty interesting. There’s one though that stinks to high heaven of flop months before it even comes out

http://boundingintocomics.com/2018/01/05/every-single-superhero-movie-coming-2018/9/

Secret Warriors

This movie has all those characters that Diversity and Comics and Capn Cummings have been warning about for the past few months. Instead of simply getting the message after what 5-6 Captain Marvel restarts and how immensely unpopular other characters like Squirrel Girl and America Chavez are, instead, they’re doing this. This is what it says in the article about this movie

“Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will star Spider-Gwen who will now go by Ghost-Spider as she teams up with Quake, America Chavez, Squirrel Girl, Captain Marvel, Inferno, Ms. Marvel, Patriot, and Glory to take on the villainous Kree Accuser Hala.

The script is being written by Mairghread Scott and will feature some top voice talent including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. veterans Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen. It will also star Dove Cameron, Tyler Posey, BooBoo Stewart, Kathreen Khavari, Milana Vayntrub, Cierra Ramirez, Kamil McFadden, Skai JacksFron, and Kim Raver.

The digital film is set to launch sometime in 2018.”

Yep, I can hear the SJW’s screaming sexism and not learning a thing about Ghostbusters and likely Oceans 8. You’ll see them do all sorts of intelligent things, like insult and berate the regular moviegoers, virtue signal the living fuck out this. And of course, when it falls down like a lead balloon they’ll blame everyone but themselves for it.

In short, one of the studios will get bought out and there may well be more than just one. This will have an interesting bleed over effect.

13. Comicgate will heat up and the SJW’s will wilt under the heat

This probably won’t surface until near the end of the year. Truth has a way of winning out in the end anyway. But if the right studio, or in this case the wrong studio starts to go under the new owners are going to likely demand a profit of some kind for their investment. This will mean that crappy stories and characters being put out by Marvel will have to stop because shitty comics don’t sell, and new investors are not going to be happy with sales by Marvel at all.

So in effect, Comicgate will expire the same way Gamergate did. The regressives will shoot themselves in the foot. It started to unwind for the SJW’s in Gamergate when Anita Sarkeesian did her Nightline appearance.

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2015/02/20/anita-sarkessian-makes-her-big-mistake/

One curious effect of her Nightline appearance is that it exposed how few people supported her. It’s also very likely in the case of Comicgate that the power of SJW’s in comics is because nobody knows exactly how many people are SJW’s and how many are not. I posted up a YouTube video called The Spaces In Between covering this

 

This though will not be the only place where things start to go south for the regressives.

14. Title IX legislation and the meltdown on campuses

We saw what happened at Missouri and Evergreen State

There will be more events like in 2018, in fact, I’m guessing many more. It reached the point in 2017 where on professor lost her job because of her racist views.

Ironically she got fired from a noted LIBERAL and BLACK UNIVERSITY! I mean you have to be pretty damn bad to have that happen to you. Cracks are going to start showing up everywhere in academia this year and it’ll be beyond the ability of the Mainstream media to put out all the fires or even ignore them as their credibility takes hit after hit this year.

This spring will also be the first group graduating that had Donald Trump as their president for a full year. There should at the very least be active discussion of curtailing and maybe even eliminating Title IX altogether

Let me make this clear despite all the bleating you’ll see from Soy Boys and Feminists on this issue. I was recently told that there are currently over 200 Title IX lawsuits pending against various academic institutions in the United States. If even just a small percentage of those lawsuits is successful, and the law of averages suggests that some of them will be. The need for Academia to reform Title IX simply to protect themselves from potential lawsuits will be enough to send it down the tubes.

Betsy DeVos is actually saving modern academia by doing what she’s doing. It’s a shame that Regressives can’t see that their goose is literally cooked on this, and it’s really only a matter of time before it happened anyway.

This though may not be the biggest hit academia takes this year, or even the biggest hit regressives take all year.

15. Stage Four event happens!

There are Eight stages of a Movement

http://www.returnofkings.com/27956/the-8-stages-all-movements-go-through

Now whether you like Bill Moyers politics or not isn’t relevant here. We’ve been sitting on stage 3 now for close to Five years since Donglegate.

Donglegate

Late in the year especially if the Democrats are unable to win the house and thus the Regressives have to stare into an ever-widening abyss where their political and cultural capital has been depleted. This is when someone will get desperate. This desperation will likely be the event that triggers Stage 4. It’ll likely be something very small on a campus, maybe in a blue state. It may not even happen in the US it may happen out of the country. The other shoe will drop the one that Feminists have been afraid would drop. One of them will simply push things a little too far.

We all know what happens after that! The fire that has been slowly getting hotter and hotter as 2018 has been progressing will ignite. There will be all sorts of ramifications from this, far too many here for me to write about. The chances of this happening in this calendar year are 50/50 NEVER have the odds been so good. If by some chance we do get out of 2018 without stage 4 happening. The odds get greater as time goes by as does the chance for a full-on civil war.

16. BLM and reverse racism slowly fade but Anti-Semitism raises its large ugly head

Black Lives Matter lost it’s patron when Barrack Obama left office. With Barrack Obama not needing a diversion like BLM to keep the focus off him, it started a long slow decline which will continue into 2018.

As much as I’d like to celebrate this fact there’s just one problem. Anti Semites have followed the same track we’re using to fight regressives to reawaken an old forgotten issue namely attacks on Jews. I’ve seen more Anti Semitism online in the last 6 months than I did in the previous 5 years. I’ve even had one of them actively follow me online to keep yelling at me. Something that I had only encountered from an Atheism Plus acolyte.

This is the ugly stepchild of the whole movement. These people do more to prove the regressives right than anything else we do. If this group isn’t either removed or muted in some way these people could defeat everything we’ve been fighting for.

17. Increased Tension in Europe

As it currently sits the Regressives ‘won’ in France and Germany. The only problem with this in that in both cases the winning party now has to deal with an opposition that won’t allow them to put the Islamic issue under the carpet. Blatant attempts in Europe are being made to prevent the immigrant issue from getting out into the mainstream. Like calling the new crop of rioters on New Years Eve men or people instead of Immigrants

Belgium, Ireland, Hungary, Italy, Finland, Russia and late in the year Sweden all have elections scheduled this year. Each of them are going to situations where. The Regressives are going to be grinding their teeth as they watch their hold, not just on power but their ability to control information slip away from them.

You combine this with the United States Mid Terms we’re probably going to get a clear picture of where things are headed by Mid Year and will definitely know what’s afoot by the end of 2018

So How Does the Year Look?

It’s going to start out slowly. Unlike 2016 when Feminists and SJW’s took an absolute mauling. In 2017 they think they did well because they took Hollywood and exposed a whole bunch of evil men to the world.

In truth what they did is cannibalize their own ranks. You may have noticed but in case you hadn’t NOT ONE of us so-called ‘Deplorables’ got taken down by the opposition this year. Male Feminists though had a really bad year.

I’ve been avoiding calling what I’m involved in a Culture War, but that’s exactly what we’re in now. Wars require a lot of things and they tend to use up a lot of resources. In this fight, there are Three things needed Cultural, Political and Financial Capital. Cultural being the most important by the end of the year. Each of these is tied together and like any war goodwill from the culture is what maintains the opposition. For us it doesn’t matter, we’re used to being the underdogs and not having the support of the population or the money to fight back in the media or swing elections etc.

A series of larger and larger brush fires will start up as 2018 goes on. Each of these will cause more damage to the Regressives, who will do like they’ve always done. Their allies and supporters in Washington, LA and New York will keep them afloat. But as these groups all start to falter under the weight of their own hubris. More desperate measures will have to be taken. By the end of 2018 or the early part of 2019, there will likely be a full scale and now very public culture war.

And then it gets ugly!

Enjoy the silence people, the embers that are going to start this off are already smoldering.

Massive Child Predator Arrests Made Across Nation. MSM Remains Silent – Mike Cernovich

October 18th was a victorious day for law enforcement as they successfully carried out massive sting operations and arrest sweeps in three states. They were able to arrest 421 suspected sexual predators. These included arrests for child sex trafficking. These arrests were initially reported by three local outlets. The Clarion-Ledger out of Mississippi reported, “two […]

Night Of The Digital Knives: Silicon Valley Launches Biggest Internet Censorship Purge In History – Return Of Kings

While I’m not normally a huge fan of ROK for a number of reasons. ROK can and does come up with articles worth sharing. This is one of those articles, it details the breakdown of all the internet attacks that took place a couple months back, offers decent alternatives to the current establishment paysites including alternatives to Patreon and also offer suggestions that I already follow (No Nazi signs even as a joke, no attacks on Jews)

 

This article is worth the read

The Well Isn’t Bottomless After All!

We’ve seen it for the four or five decades now. Feminists and SJW’s could say what they wanted when they wanted and how much they wanted. The left won the culture won, and since 1992 have won the popular vote in almost every major US election except 2004 and in most other western countries, this has also been the case.

I first started seeing ugly examples of Political Correctness in the Mid 80’s. At the time though Reagan was running the show in the US, Brian Mulroney was PM in Canada where I live, and Margaret Thatcher was PM in Great Britain. Plus there was the tacit support that was being given for what was happening in South Africa at the time.

What I need to keep in mind here is that I was only a few months removed from what may have been a fatal drug addiction and I was still in my late teens and early twenties back then. Didn’t know much (Still only know what I know) but I had much more pressing issues in my life at the time, like learning how to live for instance. The PC stuff that was going on around me appeared to be and to a certain extent was a pushback against a then dominant conservative narrative. The events in the 60’s weren’t just an obscure event that happened 50 years earlier. Most adults back then had at least some memory of what had happened, both good and bad.

This was also the first time I ran into Misandry. It was with a group of women in a 12 step group I belonged to. These women were damaged, and in pain, I mean real pain too not just the kind of faux bullshit triggering you see these days. These women found each other and bonded, and they made it VERY CLEAR that they had no intention of being friendly to any of the men in the meeting. Of course, not every woman was like this and I got to witness some of these women get past their pain and become beautiful people. Nobody in the group ever called them on their Misandry, not the men, not other women that weren’t in their circle, nobody did it was assumed they’d get over it. Some of them did too, a lot of them though clearly didn’t!

I had my own issues to deal with I assumed that these women would eventually grow out of the state that they were in and the ship would right itself. After all, nobody in their right mind would let such crazy people run their movement right?

I also began to encounter Men’s Issues in of all places Penthouse Magazine. I can’t remember the name of the man accused but a college age male at Brown University had drunken sex with another student. That woman was later on convinced that she had been raped and brought charges against the man, this was 1987!

Ironic in light of this article that came out recently on Heat Street

https://heatst.com/culture-wars/brown-university-rape-list-shuts-down-after-falsely-accusing-student-of-rape/

Brown University

And then there was what happened to Jimmy the Greek as well, comments taken completely out of context caused him to lose his job

I’m not going to turn this into a history lesson in my progression into a Shitlord here. What we have and still have is the ability of the regressives with help from the media to push whatever narrative they wanted at any time. So for the better part of five decades, a woman or SJW could destroy a person just on their say so.

Then the Internet came along

eY4zYH4ae32GfgXRzerV53B5

 

The old standbys that Feminists had been using and the old cultural and biological mores that had from the very beginning of time had been preventing men from different social and cultural circles from talking to each began to break down. Liberals and Conservatives, Atheists and Christians men and women began speaking to each other online. It wasn’t always friendly, and in some cases, it was downright hostile. But in the case of Feminism and later on SJW’s notes began to compared and SURPRISE it turned out that these otherwise separate groups had much in common with each other than they had expected!

To give you an idea of what men had to work against Turd Flinging Monkey did an Enemies of Man series that I’d encourage anyone, not just MGTOW to go and watch

Along the way a unique movie called “The Matrix” came out, it was popular beyond all expectations, specifically, though the film introduced a metaphor that now resounds in the manosphere, this metaphor or symbol is called “The Red Pill.”

There had been of course other ways to describe a transformation from one being awake from being unaware and allowing your mind to only run on autopilot. There wasn’t an actual tangible symbol for such a state until this movie came out. Yes Total Recall also had Red Pill moment in it as well, but the symbology was different

Needless to say, the awakening had begun.

Events continued to unfold Loreena Bobbit, Duke Lacrosse both happened. Feminists and more specifically Radical Feminists continued to use the same tactics as the Manosphere slowly evolved. It was the same old song and dance for them though. Say what you want, do what you want because there are no consequences. The media controlled the dialogue, and the internet was a niche that nobody took seriously.  Feminists could afford to be dismissive of men and everything in manosphere. After all, they were just a bunch of whiny losers, right? Then the calendar switched to 2013!

There had of course been a shot fired across the bow before Donglegate, but this was dismissed, even by me as “a bunch of uptight idiots.” What I’m referring to is Sharon Osborne’s comment on the view that though had happened a couple of years before Donglegate.

Suddenly for the first time real consequences for a feminist that had gone too far, clear there had been real-world implications for this kind of behavior. Since this event, it’s been very easy to deal with Feminism in its current form. They simply keep doing the things they’ve always done in the past like there’s no consequence because the support both financial and cultural had always been there.

Move ahead just a mere four years after Donglegate. Feminism is now getting absolutely mauled, some feminists have figured this out. Refer to this video and link below posted by John the Other

https://track3.mixtape.moe/udurqh.pdf

The link above is a fascinating read, not only for its conclusions but also for the level of denial and outright falsehoods that are in it.

Again though this was all well and good the Manosphere had the facts and truth on its side. Which was clearly counterbalanced by the fact that Feminists dominated the mainstream media. This gave them the ability to keep the truth out and also enable them to keep peddling lies like the wage gap and rape culture with little or no opposition. What little did come was viscously attacked. But they something else happened, and that something was Donald Trump becoming president

I’m not saying that like it’s a good thing. Personally, I would’ve voted third party myself. It’s not that he won, it’s more like he won DESPITE not having any support from any of the mainstream media outside of FOX. He won for a variety of reasons Hillary Clinton was a very poor choice by the Democrats for instance. But it was the coverage and attention that social media was giving these issues in the face of the fact that the mainstream media was in the words of Noam Chomsky blatantly trying to manufacture consent.Manufacturing Consent

Now social media is a problem! Now, all of a sudden simply having a few regressives in critical editing posts doesn’t guarantee an outcome. But most importantly to Feminists everywhere, now it dawns on a lot of them that they no longer have exclusive control of the dialogue. Going on TV and spouting off lies and half truths that can’t withstand thirty seconds of fact checking online produce diminishing returns. Ironically the more they do it, the more attention they bring to the lying they’re doing. But if they shut up and don’t say anything then the assertions being made about them, much like the very ones they used to make (except ours are the truth) go unchallenged. And if that isn’t all, there’s also the problem that now old school media is now got its own long-ignored issues to deal with. There’s a new kid on the block that new kid is the Alternate Media.Why-Alternative-Media-is-the-New-MSM

This has put this current manifestation of Feminism in a very tight spot. The attack the mainstream media are having on the alternative media are only causing the Streisand effect.

http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/streisand-effect

The media right now as expected is more concerned with taking down Donald Trump no matter what it costs. They’re doing almost everything they can at the moment to regain the narrative that they’ve now lost. Unless Feminists are headed in this same direction (They are) they’re going to get left by the wayside. All of this attention focused on the elected President though has started to have a detrimental effect elsewhere. You see that once bottomless well of money and attention isn’t bottomless after all.

The Manosphere simply by standing there and allowing the screeching harpies to screech and the pointing it out to everyone have brought feminist support crashing. The constant out of touch and in some case blatantly sexist articles being run by feminists isn’t getting ignored anymore. It’s finally starting to show now for the first time that I can recall, and Feminist organization is running out of money!

If that’s not all Fairfax Media, the company that employs Clementine Ford is also slowly dying

The well is indeed running dry! And not just financially either, just when the Rad-Fems badly needed an influx of financial and cultural capital Donald Trump gets elected, and their strongest and most potent tool in their arsenal is quickly becoming obsolete. Tie that in with the constant lying and harassment of critics and you have a situation that starting to look desperate. Ironically enough to as successful as the million woman march was it consumed a significant amount of both financial capital and goodwill to happen.

trump-4-805x452

All those people, all those speeches, all the rhetoric and it had zero effect on their opponents

You add all this together and combine it with the fact that despite all the noise made at this March, nothing has been delivered so far. While Everyday Feminism could just be a momentary blip there’s no denying that the well is starting to run dry.

And they did it to themselves! I could say more but the evidence pretty much speaks for itself and there are other blog posts.

My Guesses for 2017

I’ll have to admit that it was a little hard to come up with reasonable or likely guesses for 2017. Unlike the last two years where you could only look at Feminists or other regressives and just sit back a predict batshit crazy or epic stupidity in larger and more grandiose amounts. This year there’s a period right after Donald Trump gets sworn in where we’ll all be feeling this guy out before I can say much of anything for certain.

But then again that’s probably where I should start

  1. People hold their breath for President Donald Trump 

3

The first 100 days are usually a honeymoon period for almost any new politician. In this case, I’m guessing that almost everyone will be waiting to see how Donald Trump conducts himself, before deciding on a course of action. Once this period is over, though, we’ll likely have a pretty good idea how long it’ll take for the culture war to heat up again

But that gets me to my next point here.We’ve all been seeing the news about alleged ‘Russian Hackers’ and more specifically about how Barrack Obama has been doing as much as he can to needle the Russians before Donald Trump assumes office.

That though leads to a somewhat logical (I hope) guess for #2

    2 The Establishment may attempt to distract us from the ever widening internal culture war with an outside distraction.

There are two different ways that governments will try to deal with mounting internal pressure. They either repress, which is a terrible thing to do in an open marketplace of ideas like the internet. The other way is to start distracting the people with an outside. Now I’m not sure why the establishment would choose to antagonize a nuclear power like Russia. Whom if you remember had and still have enough nukes to turn the entire planet into a giant dayglo parking lot. The term that comes up for me is ‘playing with fire’ in this case nuclear fire! That doesn’t mean we won’t see #3 happening as well

http://www.dailywire.com/news/12143/world-war-iii-obama-just-put-troops-along-michael-qazvini

       3. Transparent attempts to crack down or censor the internet mainly alternative news sites.

israel-internet-censorship-786x350

We saw this almost immediately after the election when a list emerged of ‘fake news’ sites that curiously enough included all the sites that were either against Hillary Clinton or covered the Wikileaks issue extensively. Angela Merkel has even gone so far as to threaten any social media site that published ‘fake news’ with massive fines. It’s not a stretch to see this happen elsewhere in the west too. Certainly wouldn’t put it past Justin Trudeau here in Canada that’s for sure. I do have to point out that Trump’s election was the SECOND time that the establishment didn’t get their way because of the alternate media. Hands up how many of us remember Syria just a few months ago?

This is the list of fake news sites

http://www.dailydot.com/layer8/fake-news-sites-list-facebook/

And this is the original list, note here somehow the National Enquirer isn’t on this list.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/10eA5-mCZLSS4MQY5QGb5ewC3VAL6pLkT53V_81ZyitM/preview

Incidentally, I remember Nancy Pelosi bringing a Bill in back then that was supposed to put a cap on this back then.

And that leads me to guess #4

        4. Gamergate (or a form of it) is not dead back for round #2

Just when you thought the whole sexism and harassment on the internet was done, it’s back! Starring everyone’s least favorite SJW of all time Anita Sarkeesian! Of course unlike 2014-15 this time the ‘bullying’ thing will just be a shell for particular establishment forces to put (or try to) restrictions on social media sites. This time it won’t be gamers getting targetted but everyone. It will start slowly and gain momentum as the year goes by. You may even see some serious money behind this push and the fight isn’t going to be at Comic-Con either. This time it’ll be in Washington DC.

       5. A Watering down of the Manosphere in general

manosphere

While I try to avoid labeling someone. There is still a period after a person ‘wakes up’ where they’re still processing and sorting through all the information they’ve been given. In my case the transition from Blue Pill to Purple Pill to full on Red Pill took decades. In fact had the morons at Atheism+ not been so fanatical in their zeal to turn the Atheist Community into a regressive haven I might still be a purple pill. What I’ve seen is a lot of ‘purple pill’ or not fully awakened people coming into the movement as a whole. Political Correctness and Tone Policing will be much more widespread in 2017. This ties into number six and not in a good way.

       6. A rise in the extreme right inside the movement

There have always been people inside the MRM, MGTOW and Red Pill that were always white nationalists. In fact, regressives have used this fact to project that everyone was like this. The truth of the matter is that much like Feminists that call for the killing of 90% of the males on earth are a small minority. This bunch is also a tiny minority; their issues run parallel to what we’re dealing with especially in regards to the open racism being paraded around in Black Lives Matter like a badge of honor. I have run into more blatant racism and antisemitism in the last month than I have in the previous three years.

        7. More prominent divisions rising inside the Manosphere

On my earlier blog, someone accused me of being USA-centric because I posted up at a group that wasn’t American but another nationality. There have always been people in the MRM that wanted the MRM to be ‘ideologically pure’ in this case to be strictly conservative. Now I’m personally aware of what’s going on in Europe.You have a severe immigrant problem, and they’re not assimilating among other things. I’m not there though so for me to give any opinion on what’s happening there other than. “Yeah it’s bad, and it needs fixing.” could and would make me sound like a complete ignoramus. I write and guess what I know. ; this, by the way, is also why I don’t comment on Father’s Rights much. I’m very sympathetic; I’m also not a dad, and there’s an aspect of the problem that I can’t grasp because I haven’t had the experience. MGTOW, in particular, is growing at an exponential rate, this will mean more than a few different voices. Some of these voices are much healthier than others.

    8. Attacks on MGTOW happen with more frequency and ferocity

MGTOW

A quick check of my reader on WordPress shows that there are considerably more articles on MGTOW than there were even six months ago. I’ve had two different people that just found out about MGTOW come and ask me about it as well. This is the result of larger numbers of people, yes we have more converts (If that’s even the right word to be using). At the same time, MGTOW is also a larger target and one that’s a lot easier to take a ‘swing at’ because it’s not centralized and organized to the same extent that the MRM or even the Red Pill are, and the Red Pill group is also vast and individualistic. I’ve already gone into why people are more antagonistic towards MGTOW on another blog and video.

Not that these attacks are going to go anywhere to quote a friend taking on MGTOW is like trying to sword fight a fart.

    9. I’m not a Feminist or I’m not and/or antifeminist pronouncements rise quickly

blogtwimport140616-femininst

I’m going to be doing a video and blog about this very topic hopefully before the end of the month. To encapsulate the story though there was a woman that came out on YouTube who announced herself as not being Feminist and of course, got dog piled. This prompted me to do a search. When I started out, I had something between 35 and 40 videos. The running total is currently at 50 videos. Thirty-Four of these videos came out in 2016 another 13 were published the year before the lions share coming in the later half of 2015. Translation NINETY PERCENT of these went out in the last year. If you do an “I’m a feminist” search of YouTube, you’ll be lucky to find 5 declaring themselves to be Feminist and none of them recent. That translates out to a ten-fold increase in the last 18-24 months. Now project that out for this time next year…Can you say stampede?

Yes, you can, and it’s also entirely possible this could be a blip on the screen. Saying that it’s trending up and will continue to do so is a pretty safe guess.

    10. Yet ANOTHER months-long period of feminist and/or SJW stupidity

In 2015 we started seeing Feminists literally go on these stretches where for 2 and 3 months at a time. The highlight in 2015 was the epic failure of feminists to do anything about Roosh V when he visited Canada. In 2016 it culminated in the epic stupid doubling down on Jian Ghomeshi after one of his accusers was shown to be an outright liar. In 2015 they just stopped of their own accord, last year it was the election race that distracted everyone away from them after they were in near total free fall. This year there won’t be an election (At least not in North America anyway) to save feminism. The result will be yet another run of epic stupidity. This one though may be longer lasting and the damage done to Feminism by Feminists will likely never be recovered.

We may also be served with a double scoop of stupid because now the SJW’s will also likely engage in a period like this as well.

Don’t hold your breath this likely won’t happen until the later half of 2017.

    11. Very clear signs that Feminism is losing 

Up until now, it’s been something of an inside secret that Feminism and now the SJW’s have been losing. This changed to public because of the election of Donald Trump and the Brexit win. What you’re going to see is some of the smarter feminists start admitting they’re in trouble. Especially when it becomes clear that Trump isn’t going down quickly.

    12. Things start getting violent

argentine_cathedral_585_401_55

Again I can see this happening later on in the year when it becomes apparent that. Donald Trump isn’t going anywhere. And that the attempts by the establishment to censor discussion didn’t have the desired effect. At this point, they’ve nearly run out of cards to play other than yelling louder and lying more blatantly. Doing more of the same that isn’t working only hastens your downfall. Ever dealt with an animal that’s cornered or injured? If you have then, you know what’s about to happen. It won’t be a stage 4 event, but it will certainly load and cock the trigger.

    13. Outrageous and Blatant Lies

If you thought some of the articles done this year were bad (I’m looking at you MTV News) just wait. In 2016 there were only a handful of videos that got pulled because they were so bad. I can see it happening with much greater frequency as the year progresses  Don’t check my facts will almost start being a mantra.

14. Members of the various SJW factions start getting in trouble

I’ve been astounded that some people in this camp haven’t seen themselves in legal hot water yet. That may change this year Anita has already been caught politizing with her non-profit. We’ll start hearing about legal and/or criminal action being started against at least one of these people.

    15. Bill Cosby Trial! 

Bill Cosby Heads To Court For Preliminary Hearing

How could I overlook this gem?

Due to happen in June? This will be the rape trial of the year to watch, and I’m guessing that Feminists are going to go all out here. Mostly for the reasons mentioned previously. There’s more than enough reasonable doubt here. I even remember one lawyer demanding 100 million dollars, or they would press charges! Now much like Jian Ghomeshi he may well be guilty, but events around the case also look like yet another conspiracy. One that’ll start falling apart once the actual trial starts. Expect LOTS of coverage on this, most of it attempting to declare him guilty before the fact.

A Guilty verdict here will start an extended period of feminist gloating, after all by the time the trial is over they’ll be in serious need of any kind of win. Feminism hasn’t had any major wins since VAWA was passed in 2014. However, if he’s found Not Guilty! Well, then everything I mentioned about things getting violent becomes much more real!

I don’t know why I left this till now, but this trial could be a lynchpin the same way the election was in 2016.

    16. Virtue Signal Failure

Unlike Bill Cosby, I overlooked this one because it’s such a safe guess that almost anyone can make it. (I predict a quake somewhere in the Pacific Rim!) The Amy Schumer Barbie movie has all the makings of one serious stinker. There may well be others.

    17. Call on Donald Trump to be impeached or resign by the end of summer

Started with politics going to end with politics. This is likely another very safe call for me. Why do you ask? Well, you see I live in Alberta, and we had this election here in 2015! The New Democrat Party won, a stunning turn for a province that had been Conservative since almost before I was born.

Rachel Notley barely even had time to warm up a seat in the Alberta Legislature here when people were demanding a recall or that she resign. Now this is an example of the blind attacking coming from the right. I can quite easily see it coming from the ‘regressives’ in the US within a couple of months of Trump sitting in the Oval Office.

  18. A Hard Right or Nationalist party wins a country (Or two) in Europe this year. 

Given the complete and total inability of the left in Europe to acknowledge that there’s even a problem with the current immigration situation. When it comes to election time this year for certain countries, you’re going to see right leaning or even far right leaning parties gain greater prominence some of them may even win, especially in France.

Well, that’s it for me this year much like how I see the year starting slowly and then heating up as we get closer to the end of the year. Same thing happened to the blog, started slow, but once my thought processes started going, I got on a run. Very quiet almost mute start to 2017 as we all hold our breath for the great unknown (sort of) that is Donald Trump. Once it’s clear where things are going though it’ll heat up quickly. Especially if Bill Cosby is found not guilty.

Let’s see how well my guesses hold up for 2017
