Arianna Huffington You Have Got to be Kidding Me!

Twitter…

I have some really mixed feelings about Twitter. For me, it’s a place where I gather material either for here on my Blog or for my YouTube channel. I thought that once I got started doing both The Red Pill Nation and my YouTube channel but Twitter despite the fact that it keeps suspending the accounts of my friends hasn’t failed to provide me with an endless amount of material to blog about.

And today Twitter didn’t disappoint. I’m writing this after having to once again do yet another video on the upcoming Black Panther movie because some writer over at CNN needed to cum in his pants to hype the movie, AND take more than a few shots at Donald Trump.

But I digress, this isn’t about Black Panther or Donald Trump this about Arianna Huffington. You see Arianna Huffington decided to come down and start demanding that men once again take one for them with no expectation or return on the social contract.

Arianna Huffington

Yes folks despite the facts that Emily Linden Pulled this crap

Emily Lindin

And the fact that both Aziz Ansari and Jeremy Piven have been falsely accused among others.

Arianna Huffington wants all us men to just blindly step into the minefield again and happily risk career suicide and possibly even a prison sentence of a woman’s say so and mentor women. Well, Now I had a few choice tweets for her.

Now I seriously doubt that Arianna is actually going to ever read this. In fact, I doubt she even went and read the tweets she got from males everywhere about this. But you know don’t doubt me have a look for yourself.

https://web.archive.org/web/20180214103532/https://twitter.com/ariannahuff/status/960902212003221504

She or some other staff stooge of hers will simply just disregard this. Either because I’m not a ‘real’ journalist, icky male or simply because I disagree with her, rightly so. But on the off chance you do happen to read this I have to say this.

Who the hell do you think you are? Are you fucking kidding me? Pardon the language but that Tweet and that whole website just stinks to high heaven of cognitive dissonance on a level that someone like you shouldn’t have. At this point, there is no way you couldn’t have heard the stories that false accusations are happening at a far greater percentage than what you’ve been told. Your publication is openly publishing these accusations without proof in a lot of cases. And THEN you have the gall to demand that males man up and gleefully jump back in the minefield again. Did you go over and read the responses to your Tweet? Do you even CARE? I have news for you, you’re not getting those tweets because you’re counterculture and trendy. You’re not getting them because scared males are afraid of losing their privilege. Hell, I’ve never had much male privilege any that I’ve had I had to carve out on my own. Nobody and I do mean NOBODY ever handed me any. In fact, I could probably say that had I not fought to find my maleness in my thirties so vigorously my life would likely be very unhappy right now. And you just assume that I and every other male just got this handed to them on a platter? What color is the sky on the planet you live on? Because it sure as hell wasn’t earth.

And if what you said wasn’t bad enough let’s just do a quick review of some of the things you’ve said and done about men in the past few months. You need to understand I kept the digging down here to a minimum here. I shudder to think what I would’ve found had I started doing some real digging.

I’ll start with the Two blogs I’ve done about Huffington Post

Lets just reverse the races on this and see how it sounds!

Reverse Racism

Huffington Post is Racist AGAIN!

Both of these articles were essentially the same thing. I switched out the word Black for the word White and let the changes speak for themselves. In no way have you ever tried to retract these articles as far as I can tell.

But then let’s get into what Huffington Post South Africa ran. In this case, you did have to do a retraction. Not before you got the man who ghost-wrote this horrible article fired from his job though

huffingtonpost white

A fake HuffPo blog about white male privilege cost its non-white female South Africa editor her job

Now in a rare (And I do mean rare) bout of common sense, Verashi Pillay was forced to resign after allowing this to slip through. But here’s the thing I keep wondering here. What kind of environment was it like at The Huffington Post office that made it so easy for a fake article like this one to even slip through in the first place. There would’ve had to be failures at several places and not just the chief editor there to allow for something like this to even happen.

Not done yet, not by a long shot. Let’s talk about an article that was so badly written it got a mention at My five worst-hit pieces blog written way back in 2015.

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2015/04/06/my-personal-five-worst-hit-pieces-ive-read/

This article was so bad that they had to remove the comments section because if they hadn’t his whole narrative would’ve fallen apart like a house of cards. Needless to say, Huffington Post hasn’t been granted this kind of access since to ICMI.

You know what Arianna? I’d like to say I’m done but I’m not here’s another dishonest gem that you idiots ran about the MRM.

http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/no-hymen-no-diamond-group-searches-for-beautiful-virgin-brides-wtf_us_560558e1e4b0dd85030730a9

Taylor Pittman

Although it was never proven that Feminists started No Hymen No Diamond I did find it rather odd that an odd number of feminists found this site LONG before the bulk of the MRM did. When I stumbled into this site not one of the MRA’s that I was associated with had joined or even heard of this site. This, however, didn’t stop the Huffington Post from trying really hard to prove that it was. Their angle ran like this

There are MRA’s here, therefore, this is an MRA site! Does that mean NFL.com or NHL.com are also MRA sites? There’s probably a lot of MRA’s there too. The back story for this one is long and more than a little suspicious.

Fidelbogan did publish a rebuttal of sorts though

http://counterfem2.blogspot.ca/2015/09/taylor-pittman-of-huffington-post.html

And last we have Emily McCombs who posted up this Misandric Comment at the start of the year!

xjM-bFp0UCTXUFIgLBspE9rCBUwy8npyBYKOq-CtrFQ

And what did you do Arianna?

Arianna Huffington.3

You did NOTHING! Now had this been reversed the man would’ve been fired in a cold second. In what’s becoming an old pattern now Emily McCombs said she was just “joking” again odd how that excuse always seems to surface whenever a Feminist makes a statement like this.

This is where you come in though Arianna. In NO WAY did you ever discipline, chastise, reprimand or even give any kind of statement about how you’re all about gender equality and comments like this are not helpful in the least. In fact, neither you nor The Huffington Post has publicly spoken out against Misandry like this ever as far as I can see.

You know what I could keep going but it’s getting so late here that it’s actually turning into very early.

This is my response to your demand. You and the publication you run have demonized and shamed men at every turn. I could get into #metoo and all the potential abuses that are already happening here including a suicide

I could also start digging into what happened in Cologne on New Year Day in 2016, but like I’ve already said it’s so late that it’s early now! But you in your self-important delusion think you can come on down and start demanding that men take another one for the team and risk their careers to help women that have no problem ruining their lives with just one accusation. Your tweet read more like a command and it sounds like you’ve gotten used to too many beta males or hired guns that will go with whatever you tell them.

So let me remind you that those negative comments on that Twitter post isn’t because you’re trendy and are going against the current culture. And NOW you have the nerve to demand that men fall on their swords all over again.

I have just one word for you.

Antifa Disrupts LGBT Parade; Claims Gay People Are Offensive To Muslims

I think the proper term would be “Left eats their own” no me in particular since I lean to the left myself. Personally, though the sooner these idiots self-destruct we can get down to discussing real issues on the left has and not be engaging in all this social justice crap that’s bringing everyone down

Vice Loses Major $100 Million Investment, Forces Television Channel Off Air

Once upon a time VICE used to bring you articles and stories that were interesting and made you care about human rights. Then VICE went full regressive and like many other publications of it’s kind they’re finding out the hard way that Social Justice, especially dishonest social justice doesn’t sell.

Good Bye VICE TV! Good Riddance I’m going to lay good odds that you’re far from the last company that’ll be in this condition as 2018 progresses

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.

STUDY: FEMINIST TEACHERS NEGATIVELY AFFECT BOYS’ EDUCATION

via Study: Feminist Teachers Negatively Affect Boys’ Education

Taking it to another level, The Raid Style Article. The new strategy of regressives online and how we can counter it! Hint: it’s not a simple solution

I recently came back to The Red Pill Nation after a very LONG hiatus! I’m still not sure why I stopped for a while. I did keep the facebook group going and it’s at 1083 members and climbing.

09xp-weinstein-master768-v3

My full on return was brought on by the fallout that Harvey Weinstein created in the film community. This fallout didn’t just occur in Hollywood but also caused at least one person here to lose their job and for me personally, I had to spend a half day or so investigating the odd disappearance of several film contacts that just up and blocked me and one group that I got kicked out of. I started asking around and found out that I wasn’t the only one this had happened to. In my case, I did nothing wrong and broke no laws this didn’t stop people from using an event 10 years ago to settle a grudge.

And thus I came back slowly at first then I spotted this article by Ian Miles Cheong

http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/16/islamic-art-and-architecture-expert-debunks-claims-about-muslim-vikings/

Viking Warriors

Started following this story and wouldn’t you know it these idiots tried to play the race card

Ian Miles Cheong

https://www.truthdig.com/articles/yes-white-supremacists-vikings-muslims-thor-brown/

But wait! The rabbit hole gets deeper, not only did truthdig.com try to play the race card but they also only allowed comments on the article for less than 24 hours before closing them. Naturally, though this didn’t stop an actual academic from taking a closer look at the findings (Ironically with the last name of Mulder) and the whole narrative went down in flames. Red Ice TV did a kick-ass takedown of this story as well

And yes, I did my tiny part as well.

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2017/10/17/islamic-art-and-architecture-expert-debunks-claims-about-muslim-vikings/

Now you would think that it would end there but it didn’t. One week later this article appeared on my Twitter feed

MUSIC Polaris Music Prize 20170918

Halifax music festival apologizes for ‘overt racism’ after volunteer refuses to give spot near stage to women of colour

Pimienta invited “brown girls to the front” during her Oct. 19 show. The outspoken singer, who took home the Polaris Prize for her album “La Papessa” last month, frequently asks her audience to welcome people of colour to the front of the stage. In turn, she requests that white people move back.

Not surprisingly there were several whites, including a photographer that refused to do this. Now had the races been reversed there would’ve been an outpouring of anger that we never would’ve heard the end of. Now here’s where it gets good. The Halifax Pop Explosion APOLOGIZED TO HER! No, they never admitted any wrongdoing and for a few days, I thought about doing a blog just on this incident. First, there was the apology itself from Halifax Pop Explosion.

Dear attendees, fans, artists, staff, volunteers, and folks otherwise involved in the Halifax Pop Explosion. On Thursday, October 19 at the Marquee Club, a white HPX volunteer along with several other white people in the audience reacted to Lido Pimienta inviting “brown girls to the front” of the venue with overt racism. This volunteer was removed by Lido herself. They have since received notification from the festival that they are no longer welcome to volunteer with us.

We will not accept this behaviour and neither should you. Be responsible for your friends – talk to them and support them as they move towards unpacking their racism. People of Colour deserve safe spaces and it is your responsibility to help. It is also ours.

The Halifax Pop Explosion has worked hard in the past year to learn what embracing anti-racism and actively being inclusive of People of Colour and 2SLGBTQ+ folks entails. We take responsibility for missed opportunities to actively support POC artists this year and promise to build meaningful infrastructures within our festival through which to better support these communities in the future.

Halifax Pop Explosion is committing to providing our team with anti-oppression and anti-racism training. Additionally, we will be working with local organizations over the next year to create a list of local resources for our community. We also want to make this list available to those who create unsafe and uncomfortable space at our shows and venues by demonstrating racism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, and other discriminatory behaviors, so they too can begin unpacking their discriminatory behavior. As a festival, we will also spend the next several months addressing ways we can make our festival spaces safer for women, POC, and 2SLGBTQ+ folks.

To Lido Pimienta: we are sorry that one of our volunteers interrupted your art, your show, and your audience by being aggressive and racist. We have so much respect for the art and music you create and the space you make for women, people of colour, transgender, and non-binary people. The way you interact with the world acts and provides a thoughtful example. You are a role model to us and many people in our community. We see it. We feel it. We hope you will work with us again.

To the POC in the audience on Thursday night: we are sorry your night was interrupted, and perhaps ruined, by one of our volunteers. We are going to try our best as a festival to create ways to make our spaces safer and more accessible for you. We hope we can rebuild some trust and that you will come back to our shows.

Thanks everyone for reading. We are fielding many discussions already. If you would like to make your voice heard in these discussions, please don’t hesitate to contact the organization directly by emailing talkback@halifaxpopexplosion.com. We are listening.

– Georgie Dudka, on behalf of the Board of Directors for Halifax Pop Explosion

Yeah, your eyes aint fooling you. They apologized to LIDO! Not to the photographer, not to the people that had to move. Nope, they doubled down and apologized to her. But it gets even more special though. Had this just been an honest oversight and the reckless hasty response to criticism being fired their way, the comments section would’ve been left open. But if you go to their facebook page and comment you’ll see your comment but won’t see anyone else’s unless they’re friends of yours. Don’t believe me go and have a look for yourself

https://www.facebook.com/halifaxpopexplosion/

Luckily for all of us, the shares are available and boy are they getting ripped. And this was my point here. This is called shadowbanning or throttling. What Facebook does is bury the comments. You have to specifically do this Facebook doesn’t do this on its own. So at least one person at Halifax Pop Explosion knew that they were doing something wrong and tried to blunt it ahead of time.

SECOND example of burying comments

The last point to make on this Lido was getting so much heat for what she did that she had to respond twice.

http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/touring/8022018/lido-pimienta-speaks-out-after-racism-controversy-at-halifax-pop

Lido-Pimienta-2017-cr-ruthie-titus-billboard-1548

http://exclaim.ca/music/article/lido_pimienta_speaks_out_following_overt_racism_at_halifax_pop_explosion

No admission she had done anything wrong, IN FACT, Lido went on to explain that she does this all the time. Well, Lido that’s really special of you, kind of like that stunned idiot in the South during the 60’s that went on about how this is how he always treated blacks and can’t understand why they’re getting uppity now. Yeah, that’s how these articles came off to me. How dare them white folks get uppity.

Just on a final note here, if you live in Halifax or anywhere near there. I recommend you spend your dollars on other music events in Halifax next year, not the Halifax Pop Explosion

You know what? I really wish this was the end of the blog but it’s not. Read on brave traveler! Because NOW we get to of all publications The New York Times!

So this one started out when I saw a YouTube video by Steven Crowder

 

Steven did a hell of takedown on this article and if you need to find out how just watch the video above. And Yes, Charles M Blow played the race card to boot!

So this was what I was going to do. I was going to do. I was going to put Steven Crowders rebuttal video in the comments section of this article. Only to discover that just like Truthdig.com they had already closed the comments section 24 hours after the article had been published.

So OK maybe that was a one-off. In the process of discussing the first article, someone pointed out this New York Times article.

It too only had the comments section open 24 hours before they closed comments!

OK, now I’m starting to see a pattern here! Now, this could all just be a coincidence and for all I know this could just be a spate of this happening that could easily disappear next week. Except I distinctly recall the New York Times keeping their comments sections open weeks even months after the article was run. You also can’t dismiss that earlier this year online publications started moving away from comments sections. A place like the New York Times though is in a dilemma. They’re a huge publication that on the surface prides itself on being an open and fair marketplace of ideas.

The other problem in the past few months they’ve openly taken some stances that are patently regressive. At these times they like every other publication that has done this has gotten their ass handed to them in the comments section. So what do they do?

Here’s where the deep pockets and research come in handy. And to demonstrate this I’m going refresh your memory of an event that happened a couple years ago. Back in 2015 a petition was started to ban Daniel Baldwin from attending Supanova Pop Culture Fair

Daniel Baldwin

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2923644/Online-petition-calls-actor-Adam-Baldwin-banned-coming-Supanova-s-linked-Gamergate-movement-accused-harassing-women-online.html

This petition started first and easily had a 1,000 plus signature lead before a counter-petition was started

Despite having almost a week and a huge lead in the number of signatures. The Anti-Baldwin petition got fewer signatures even though they were being supported by parts of the mainstream media.

The reason why they lost is that once the petition was revealed Pro-Baldwin people were able to set up and organize a response that canceled out the initial support the ban Baldwin side had managed.

Deep pockets mean that you can pay people to analyze patterns and responses. And my thinking is this. They’ve discovered either by accident or on purpose that if you allow the comments section to stay open past a certain point in time, your critics are going to overwhelm their limited number of supporters. And let me make this clear, support for the regressives is on the decline. They can’t just disallow comments that would run contrary to the principles of a fair and open marketplace of ideas. So what do you do in a situation like this? Well as we saw with the Ban Daniel Baldwin petitions there’s a period of time between when an article is posted and when your critics see it and have the time to formulate and then post a response. Even longer before that response finds it’s way into the comments section of the original article. This period is called lag time, it’s the period between a stimulus (The New York Times article) and the Response (Steven Crowder’s YouTube Video). Steve Crowder got up on this fast but not fast enough.

By only allowing comments for 24 hours you limit the amount of time your critics have before they can respond directly to your article. It means that unless someone is really on the ball, only your regular readers get the chance to post up comments before the comments section closes. By the time it’s discovered and response can be made your comments are already closed. AND it gives publications plausible deniability because they’re allowing comments not blocking them.

Most people reading this know that’s a pretty slimy way of doing things! I’ve never been in the Armed Forces but pieces like these equate out to Raids. Go in, do your raid, and get out before stronger forces arrive. In the short run, these articles do very little damage. Long term though they can create the impression that our side is at the very least losing strength. This may not be the reality but again as most of us reading this article know. It’s not the reality that matters it’s the perception of it that does

So what can be done about this? This is both an easy and tough one to answer at the same time. The smarter more aware among us knew that this ‘culture war’ was going to have a back and forth to it. As stupid and insane as regressives are, the people at the top the ones attempting to ride these idiots into power are not stupid at all. It was really only a matter of time before they started figuring us out and adjusted their methods. It’s therefore up to us to adapt as well.

And here’s where it gets really difficult. Unlike the regressives, we have people from both sides of the political, cultural and theistic arenas on our side. We quite literally have Atheists and Christians, Liberals and Conservatives, PUA’s and MGTOW’s all on the same side. In fact, I’ve recently had to block someone who normally would’ve hopped on my group page in a cold second, and it was all over MGTOWMGTOW

So the best way to deal with raiders is with a rapid response. The idea is this there’s a central site that pays attention to press articles and can send the appropriate people to respond before the site has the chance to shut down their comments. This though puts someone right on the border of harassment and in fact, we know that Regressives wouldn’t hesitate one second to make that call. One other thing we can do is pay closer attention and realize that we’re a cultural war of sorts. The only way we can have peace with regressives is on bended knee and I’m not going to submit to that. Which means that you must be ready to respond when you see something.

There’s also a bigger issue to deal with here. Thus far we’ve been dealing with a disjointed, insane and not especially smart opposition. This, as we’ve seen in the last year, has changed. The responses to us become more coordinated and organized. Again this suggests that there’s an organization behind it. This group has deep pockets and access to all kinds of intelligence including how to analyze and defeat us. We’ve been lucky so far that they haven’t had a good tactician in their ranks otherwise we’d be in far more trouble than we are. It’s therefore imperative that we evolve to meet this new trend. I’m not going to get into what that’ll entail here. But for now, more awareness on how the media is responding to us is a good idea.

Or maybe this is just a flash in the pan! I wouldn’t complain at all if I was wrong on this.
