Purple Pills EVERYWHERE!

In case you haven’t noticed there’s been an upsurge in popularity in all of the various factions of the Manosphere. If you haven’t seen this, you really need to start paying attention and man (or woman for that matter)

This like almost everything else I’ve encountered in life is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, we have a growing awareness of the situation that is taking place. The Left in its current form is entirely toxic. Men are getting shafted in marriage, relationships or nearly everywhere else. And Feminists, Fundamentalist Muslims and SJW’s simply cannot live and live, much like organizations like the Moral Majority used to do.

People can see this, the establishment specifically the on the left has decided in its wisdom that they know better what’s better for us. Not allowing us as individuals to make their own choices. This is what people call the red pill moment that moment when they see what’s going on around them and awaken to the reality of the situation around them.

This is the scene from the Matrix where Neo first takes the Red Pill

If you’ve seen this movie, you know that Neo doesn’t become fully awake right away. He had to recuperate medically be introduced to the Matrix slowly before he was shown what the reality of the Matrix truly was,. It was only when he learned the real truth via Morpheus teaching him via the construct, that the process of freeing himself from it and becoming empowered could begin in any real serious way

There’s a space of time in the movie between where Neo gets free from the Matrix and where he’s shown the truth of it. That phase is what many of us would like to call the Purple Pill.

But what is the Purple Pill? Well first you have to be aware of what the Red Pill is

This is a basic definition of the Red Pill, and many within the Red Pill community have taken many different meanings depending on who they are. Some of these are good some are not.

Purple Pill is that transition between Blue Pill (Asleep) and the Red Pill (Awake). This transition in the Matrix takes time. Some people are ‘blessed’ with taking a full hit right away. Although it’s not something, they’d consider a blessing at the time.

In my case, my Purple pill transition happened over a couple of decades. Starting with Loreena Bobbit, Noam Chomsky, and an Introduction the Sterling Institute of Relationship.

https://www.sterling-institute.com/

It ended when Atheism Plus decided that they needed to turn the entire Atheist community into a giant social justice warrior machine. They were only partially successful in doing this, mostly because Atheists are generally a group of independent-minded and strongly opinionated people who for some odd reason had the nerve to demand that Feminists bring actual facts to the table rather than just accepting what they were told. myers

When a person is in transition that person may not and might not want to absorb or listen to all the Red Pill concepts. So what you’ll run into this crowd is people that for instance or wholly on board when it comes to Gamergate, but will start screaming at you like a fanatical SJW if you criticize Black Lives Matter. Or they’ll run a men’s rights page or group on Facebook but will get their panties in a knot if you post something anti-feminist.

I’ve personally run into both of these, but I also ran into this lovely example brought to you by Feminism LOL

I’d like to say that what Diana has encountered is the exception rather than the rule. That would be a lie, though, I recently did a search on YouTube using the terms “No Longer a Feminist” or “I’m an Antifeminist, ” and the search yielded some fascinating results

Most of these videos were done in the last 18-24 months. We have the usual suspects on here Karen Straughn, and Julie Borowski for instance, have put out enough content that pretty much everyone except perhaps hardcore angry MGTOW would dismiss them. Others though like Kisara Vera, for example, leave you questioning their motives especially after you’ve seen Kisara Vera’s video on MGTOW for instance.

I understand that Kisara Vera may have some good points, but honestly, I’m not very keen on listening to someone who is this ignorant about MGTOW as she was in this video. Luckily for all involved Turd Flinging Monkey made a rebuttal video

We need to keep in mind two different things here when it comes to Purple Pillers. The first being this that not everyone that’s signing on board and claiming to be Red Pill, MRA, MGTOW, Gamergate, Anti-SJW is whom they appear to be. Some of them have very self-serving motives, in fact, everyone myself included needs to be vetted very carefully.

The other is this these Purple Pillers are like that new guy that just started at the workplace. He might be quite enthusiastic, and gun ho about his new job/status but isn’t aware of the lay of the land, the politics and in the case of the Red Pill the personal responsibility that comes from taking the Red Pill. And not all of them are going to become fully awake and aware, some of them are going to go running back.

The thing to remember here is that these people are like children in some ways, they really, honestly don’t know yet. And much like that new guy on the job site we need to have a little patience and understanding, especially when they join sites on Facebook for instance then start tone policing, virtue signaling or even worse. I ran into such a guy at one group on Facebook where this one Black Man apparently didn’t want to hear about how racist the Huffington Post had become and decided to start screaming at me, rather than providing facts to back up what he was saying.

I’ve been running into a lot of this lately, and I’ve been hearing from other people complaining about this as well. This is a consequence of a group or subculture becoming larger. Yes, we get the growth, fame, and influence that come with greater numbers. We also get more dissenting opinions from those not fully aware. For those that are feeling the frustration well up from having to explain basic concepts inside groups that were previously free of this. Understand that these people are not at the same level of awareness that you are. In time they’ll either come around or leave but take it with a grain of salt. When I started this I got ripped into for posting up an article that wasn’t quite right either. It was explained to me why it was this way and I got what they were saying. In doing so they opened the door to MGTOW.

We’re here to show the others that come after us what this Red Pill means, it’s not up to me, you or anyone to decide what that means for them personally. Maybe you will get a Cypher but you’ll free a lot of others on the way.

Clinton or Trump two different paths for the Manosphere and The New Activism

I have a love-hate relationship with politics. On the one hand, it fascinates me how and what people will do to do get and maintain power leaves me dizzy. On the other hand, people that cannot or will not stop talking about politics non-stop have easily got to be some of the most annoying people on the planet. Yes, everything has a political element to it, that being said though 12 step programs have a political element to them that didn’t stop me a Liberal choosing a guy that was about as Conservative as you could respectively get in Canada as a sponsor.

This man was the Ying to my Yang giving me a perspective on things that kept me in balance and centred. More importantly, he taught me without ever saying it that you don’t judge a person by their political affiliation, you judge them by what they do. This lesson has been crucial to me as I got involved with the MRM then MGTOW. There are still people that still cling to the dinosaur that’s the old liberal/conservative orbit on this issue. 

But that’s not the reason why I wanted to do this particular blog. I’ve been speculating on what’s happening in the 2016 presidential campaign and what it will mean for us in the Alternative media. Specifically what it’ll mean for us in the Greater Men’s Movement, Gamergate and the Red Pill.

I’ve already seen some very concerning trends develop in the last few months. For instance *1 There was an attempt early this year to platform the Gregory Alan Elliot verdict into an attempt to censor the internet and specifically Twitter. Which culminated in the one and only victory for feminism in the last few years when Roosh V had to pull back on his gathering. 

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Meetup On February 6 Is Cancelled

Not that I’m a big Roosh V fan or anything but what I concluded from what I saw here was a coordinated and organised attempt to keep someone from holding a meetup. 

There were also several MRA sites shut down because of mass complaints launched against them. In fact, I shared the blog by I-Hypocrite that documented what was happening

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2016/08/21/rose-is-off-her-meds-ihypocrite/

What you saw here was the beginning of the actual kickback from Feminists as they desperately try to regain an initiative that they lost in 2013 and never got back. Personally, I think Feminists and SJW’s should be thankful that the election came along when it did. After all, they’ve done a great job of defeating themselves at every turn even losing any ground that they might’ve gained earlier in the year. This election serves as a healthy distraction for everyone allowing them to post up some real idiocy that would normally get crushed.

But I’m 500 words into this, and I haven’t gotten to my actual point yet! Trump vs. Clinton what kind of effect will this have for us in the future. Whether you like it or not one of these two is going to be President. One sucks corporate dick, and the other one is a corporate dick. Glad I don’t have to pick one of them but then again I’d be voting Libertarian if I had the choice. 

So you have two options here Trump or Clinton? While I’m not psychic or any other kind of person who predicts the future I can make educated and informed guesses. I’ve been surprisingly good at doing this but they are just guesses, and I freely admit that I could be wrong. 

So two real options here Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump how will this play out? Please note here I’m stating what my personal preference is by the order or anything else.

hillary-clinton4

Hillary Clinton wins.

Currently, Hillary is in the lead but only by a thin margin, and this is one of those elections that may drag out weeks afterwards much like 2000. I’m not convinced that this is a shoo-in for her the Democrats are using the same failed tactics that the Republican opponents to Donald Trump used.

But this about who’s going to win more like what will happen if Hillary does win. That will depend on the margin of victory. If Hillary wins in a landslide, then the Feminist/SJW camp will probably view themselves as being more secure than the facts would indicate they are. They will take the time to gloat laugh and otherwise continue to be dismissive of us going into 2017 even to the point that the winter and spring may be relatively quiet. They’ll view this in much the same way the conservative pro-war crowd views the 2004 election and will eventually go on the attack. And not just the clumsy poorly thought out blunders you’ve seen this year, but full-scale media assaults. Blatant lying thinly veiled suggestions that someone should do harm to us etc. The thing is that they’ll feel secure in their position and will respond in due time. The only problem is that someone or group will take this seriously and act accordingly. This will trigger that now infamous stage 4 event

https://www.popularresistance.org/the-8-stages-of-successful-social-political-movements/

Then it’s game on

A narrow win by Clinton though will induce a kind of panic. Yeah, Hillary won but damn that was close! There will, of course, be celebrating and joy by the Regressives but this is short lived. A slight win will serve as a wake-up call and will induce as much anxiety as it does the celebration. The attacks will start shortly afterwards, possibly while Barrack Obama is still in office *3 The reason for this is simple, given what Hillary Clinton just spoke about the Alt Right tonight there is very little doubt in my mind that she will tacitly endorse this move. Much like there’s been a lot of speculation about Barrack Obama quietly endorsing what has been going on with Black Lives Matter *4 

Things will come to a head much sooner bolstered by probable silent approval from the top the attacks will come hard and fast. The fading social capital that the regressives have will get spent much faster than in the first scenario. Stage 4 trigger event could come in as little a 6 months to a year. There’s also the very real possibility given Hillary Clinton’s already bad record that we could see the first one and done President since 1992.

So no matter what the margin of victory here the culture war starts sooner rather than later

AP549813522930-540x345

Donald Trump wins

Let’s be honest here Donald Trump needs to be a little quieter! The culture war is still coming the only difference here is that unlike the margin of victory here. What happens with Donald Trump will depend on how competent he is. I’m going to give both options if you disagree with me, well for this story to work I have to do both. I’m not giving either of these two any endorsement. So we have a choice between a competent Donald Trump and an incompetent Donald Trump

Competent Donald Trump could be the answer to more than a few of the ills that are plaguing the United States right now. And he’ll need all his capability to deal with the constant attacks that he’ll be facing in his first year. Donald Trump is many things some of them good some of them bad. What he isn’t though is the choice of the establishment and I’ll even go far as to say that he may well be a victim of either an impeachment or assassination in his first 12-18 months. Especially if he turns out to be more competent than expected. 

What this means is that the regressives will likely be spending the first year or two going after Trump as opposed to engaging in an all out attack on the seven deadly anti-feminist groups *5. In fact what you’ll see is a kind of reset button hit the sniping will continue and much like how it’s been going for the last couple of years. The real difference is that the regressives will have more time and space to organize themselves. What you’re also going to see as Donald’s term in office continues we’ll start running into larger and more blatant attempts to censor the fight as we go along. You’ll see more of those Trust and Safety Councils spring up as the fight slowly and inexorably starts to heat up again.

https://blog.twitter.com/2016/announcing-the-twitter-trust-safety-council

With some luck, Donald and the people in the Oval Office might be able to keep a lid on things possibly even as long as 2018 or 2019

An incompetent Donald Trump is another story. The establishment will quickly realize that Donald Trump isn’t all he’s cut out to be. That still doesn’t rule out things like either an assassination or impeachment it just makes it less likely and much less urgent. What this will mean for us though is that the regressives will cease their attacks on Donald and swing around and come at us. So in this scenario I see things going critical later than it would with a competent Donald Trump but still later than it would with Hillary Clinton. 

But before we all celebrate the fact that Donald Trump’s election delays these events. For all intents and purposes when it does go off the explosion will be much larger because there will be more energy behind it when it goes, simply because there was more time before the critical point was reached.

Either way, it’s going to blow, at this point, I seriously doubt that regressives have the necessary foresight to realize how self-defeating they’ve been. Much like how certain people have chosen to bury their heads in the sand of global warming. Regressives will keep their heads buried in the sand until it’s too late. But for those people in the Manosphere who believe that going Conservative or Liberal, Republican or Democrat is going to solve this? It won’t this election is about moving the seating arrangements on the Titanic at this point. Saving this society will mean that you as a person will have to take individual action, not wait for big daddy government to come and save you.

Remember folks politics is a loaded issue and what I just wrote here is sheer speculation on my part, not a wish list. So let’s stay away from the dogma if we can.

*1 I have nary a shred of proof to back up the Twitter claim. There were an odd series of coincidences right around the time of the Gregory Alan Elliot verdict. 

*2 Not that the article in question didn’t get crushed in the comments anyway

*3 NO SOONER than today (August 25, 2016) Hillary Clinton herself took shots at the Alt Right movement. While I’m not Alt Right myself I found the timing of this very ominous indeed. Links provided below including a piece from Davis J Aurini

An Introduction to the Alt Right

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/293359-full-speech-hillary-clinton-attacks-alt-right-and

*4 Again I have no facts to back up that point it’s pure speculation on my part and more than a few posts saying that’s what he did. Did he do it? I have no idea but given what I’ve seen from Barrack Obama it’s not out the question.

*5 I got this name from this bullshit article at Oxygen.com the Seven Deadly Anti-Feminist Groups are,  Gamergate, The Alt-Right, New Atheists, Men’s Right Activists, Red Pillers, MGTOW, Pick Up Artists

 

New Strategy? or Just Coincidence

I’ll admit Gamergate isn’t my main focus. Once upon a time I did play games a lot back in the days of the internet cafe I practically lived in them. I’m old enough to remember when the original Warcraft got demonstrated at what was the precursor to the now very famous (and also now infamous) Calgary Expo. I was excited and looked forward to playing it. There were also a few things I remember about those bygone conventions. There was cosplay, but it usually wasn’t more than a few people, and it wasn’t anywhere as huge as it was now. There were not a lot of women at these events. This wasn’t because women were being excluded, it was because back then women didn’t come these events because the guys there and the events going on there were not high status, or moneymaking.

This gets to my current bug up my ass. The Anti Gamergate side has been very quiet this year. As well they should be, after all their hero Anita Sarkeesian got her ass owned the first time she dared step out into the public. I wrote up a blog about that as a matter of fact

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

Ever since then things just went downhill for them. Brianna Wu went and imploded twice once at a convention and then at some random guy on a plane. This killed whatever legitimacy that she had, not to say she had all that much in the first place. The AGG then slowly but surely started to self-destruct. Culminating in Expogate and the GG in DC meetup that got interrupted by no less than a bomb threat. Yeah, they went pretty quiet after that? Not to mention that pretty much all the video game journalist sites capitulated and changed their standards.

http://drawandstrike.blogspot.ca/2015/01/why-gamergate-has-won-is-winning-and.html

The thing is though what I’ve learned from engaging in more than my fair share of online fights in the past few months is this. Unlike in a real fight where you can tell when a person has been knocked out by the fact they’re lying on the ground. Online in many cases the idiot will simply keep on babbling even after they’ve clearly lost. Showing them that they’ve lost will simply make them mad and they’ll just keep talking more. In fact in my Keyboard Warrior series I do mention a couple of times that it’s in your best interest in some cases to just walk away.

That’s what’s some amusing about this most recent run. Once again a curiously timed and ‘coincidental’ releasing of these stories and they all said the same thing.

http://betanews.com/2015/07/10/young-people-are-all-for-equality-in-games/

Never mind the fact that it was almost promptly shot down and, for the most part, has vanished less than a week after it started. It was still quite amusing that someone this punch drunk could attempt to project something this poorly thought out as these links will clearly show

http://www.everyjoe.com/2015/07/10/news/survey-young-gamers-feelings-portrayal-female-characters-flawed/#1

That wasn’t all that was attempted by the AGG side. There was also a couple of interesting articles that get me back to the original point I was trying to make about women, status and their active participation in gaming now

http://www.avclub.com/article/sexist-guys-suck-video-games-science-says-222487

http://www.psypost.org/2015/07/study-low-status-men-who-bad-video-games-likely-bully-women-online-35901

Both of these articles are I believe aimed mostly at women. Given the preponderance of the usual group of White Knights posting up in the comments. Including yours truly on one where even though I stumbled a couple of times on facts I was STILL able to get on top of this one guy. Although that engagement may still be going on depending on my mood.

What both of these articles are saying is pretty much the same thing

“You know you can just ignore these guys criticisms, they’re all low status, dumb males.”

The thing you have to remember is that with a few exceptions women want higher status men. A man that is perceived to be lower status talking to her is in fact in some cases stalking or harassing her. Such a male even daring to speak to her, much less call her out on her bullshit is clearly harassing her and has to be blocked or at best ignored. Creating justification for doing this is as I’ve learned from personal experience something that women excel at. If you’ve had a falling out with a woman, the amount of mental and emotional gymnastics they’ll sometimes pull to justify some actions is mind blowing. And they will do this even in cases where their actions are immoral or hurtful and smile while they’re doing. Remember Billy Joel’s song “She’s always a woman to me?” The lyrics are truer than you might expect.

Status, is what these last articles are trying to tell women, is the reason you need to be ignoring these filthy, ignorant gamergate people. Yes, you can just dismiss what they’re saying because they’re not your equals.

I get called on this all the time as a matter of fact. Radfems and feminazis will almost always take a shot at my status real or perceived at some point and then attempt to leave with some face intact. Of course, I never allow them to do that when I can. But it always gets attempted at one time or another during an engagement with one of them. Just letting you know that you can and better expect this.

There’s just one flaw with this narrative, and it’s a huge one. If all of us icky low status, dumb as bricks, ignorant gamers are doing this. Then why are they even involved in the industry in the first place? It’s not like there were women trying to kick down the doors to get into gaming back in 1990’s and  2000’s. In fact, it wasn’t until the early/mid-2000’s when movies based off comic books started getting cranked out by the Hollywood studio system that gaming and geekdom started becoming trendy. I can attest from direct personal experience that women like these below almost never showed their faces at comic or gaming conventions before that unless they were paid.

17a26f44998f0d455c56f52e2e9bb85c Sexy-Girl-Cosplay-Costume-Ideas6 Sexy-Girl-Cosplay-Costume-Ideas9 Sexy-Girl-Cosplay-Costume-Ideas13 Wolverine

In fact, you never saw people like Lianna K or Jessica Nigri appear before then. And why was that you ask. Because we were geeks there was no money or status to be gained from showing up at cons so they didn’t. And I’m feeling very safe in saying that the moment Hollywood stops making movies based of Comic Books, most of them will evaporate like Arizona Frost.

Which makes these articles all the more hypocritical, after all if we’re supposedly low status then these women wouldn’t even be showing up in the first place!

There’re rafts of literature and information most of it PUA material, that talk about how important it is to at the very least portray higher status even of you don’t have it. Now do you think that every person that teaches PUA techniques is just saying this because it’s they like talking out of their ass?

So now Gamergaters, you are most definitely not lower status otherwise they wouldn’t be showing up to get the other thing that females seem to crave, a lot of attention! They would be looking somewhere else, which makes the points of these articles look even more ridiculous.

Now, this looks like a new narrative it’s coming entirely too late from a group that’s beaten. But well I guess we can all have a laugh at this. Just remember though they’re not done, you’re dealing with fanatics here and as long as big sister is being fed, this won’t stop happening. Which justifies Gamergates continued existence, and the status that comes with it, I say enjoy it but well I’m also MGTOW so frankly.

I don’t give a fuck what these women think of me, that doesn’t mean others don’t.
