I just joined MakerSupport Myself this person gives the best breakdown I’ve read so far about sites like these
This is it!
My Last official act of 2017. This is the one where I look back at this article
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!
- 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.
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!
2 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
Or you can just go to The Quartering to see what’s happening with Wizards of the Coast at the moment.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
I was about to go on and complete a long overdue blog when out of nowhere SJW’s go and stick their collective feet in their mouths only after smearing their faces with eggs over Aziz Ansari
I first stumbled into this by reading a post by Ian Miles Cheong at the Daily Caller.
As I was going through I couldn’t help but notice the almost blind enthusiasm that SJW’s and Feminists were using in attempting to pin this on the MRM. Most of the initial evidence came from a post on reddit.com
You’ll notice a few things right off the bat
- The poster at Pirate Bay is ANONYMOUS
- Nowhere in the Reddit post or on Pirate Bay is there any mention of the MRM or anything associated with the MRM. Or that any MRA actually made this post
- The actual Reddit subreddit that this is initially posted up at? Isn’t in anyway connected to the MRM in any fashion that I can see.
Yet SOMEHOW this had to be the work of MRA’s because we people said it was that’s why. There were multiple mentions of the MRM or an individual MRA doing this in facts some articles even flat out said that it was an MRA that did this. Except, of course, there’s just one problem. There isn’t any actual proof (So far) that it was an MRA that did the de-feminized version.
So I started doing some calling out. This is when I noticed that I had unlocked an epic achievement for any person in the Manosphere! I’d been blocked by a person whom I have to my knowledge have never interacted with
So here’s my first scardey cat blocker Kieran Shiach!
Alas, I still haven’t been blocked by Steve Shives yet, I’m working on it OK! Just give me time.
Lucky for me he was far from the only one trying to pin this on the MRM! There was a whole list of them. Usually, I’m not one for naming names but in this case and as of the publishing of this blog all of these people have yet to provide any kind of evidence to back up what they said
Remember, Remember Vote the 6th of November
Megan Want Kenobi
The Love Hater
Jonathan Eilbeck…What’s really special about this guy is he retweeted something that Kat Blaque posted
No, your eyes ain’t fooling you! She equated Collin Kaepernick to MLK!
You’ll note that there are more than a few thirsty simps and maybe I’ll start a poll here to determine when or if any of these progressive males end up getting accused of sexual assault at some point.
As many of these people as possible got the following Tweet from me
Those were just the people I saw on Twitter who made this accusation let’s get into the actual articles themselves
The Dailydot title doesn’t mention the MRM but the article does!
I could go on but it’s getting late (early) and I have things to do today. Which oddly enough include me posting up this article in the usual places.
Now anyone that’s come to my blog site either here or at YouTube on a regular basis is more than a little familiar with the process that Feminists and their allies are using here. In fact, I did a YouTube video on it called “The Spaces In Between”
What’s kind of ironic one of the accusers of Paul Elam bears a very strong resemblance to a person that’s now blocked me! I have no absolute proof that it’s him. But the resemblance between him and the guy who was calling himself Moron Christmas at the time is pretty good. But it’s not conclusive though so that’s where I’m leaving that.
The explanation for this is quite simple! Much like how the feminist #metoo movement. The accusation is the proof and it’s really not much of a surprise that regressives would attempt at some point to smear the MRM. You would think that after all this time that idiots like this would’ve figured out that making a baseless accusation without proof simply won’t work. There have been too many people that have tried this before and just like Aziz Ansari the accusations are starting to go too far. There will be people that won’t fact check, these people can be disregarded. I did a blog already where I guessed that #metoo was going to stall. Based on what I’m seeing it appears that Feminists are bound and determined to lose all the ground they gained in 2017. Which incidentally not all that much. There’s also going to be a lot more of this as 2018 moves on.
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
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
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
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.
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
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!
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
This though isn’t the main problem Jeremy Piven was accused and passed a lie detector test.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
Started following this story and wouldn’t you know it these idiots tried to play the race card
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.
Now you would think that it would end there but it didn’t. One week later this article appeared on my Twitter feed
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 email@example.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
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.
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
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 MGTOW
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.
Just when you thought Social Justice couldn’t get any stupider. Out comes this publication, less than two weeks after I encountered The Establishment.
You really cannot consider this as anything more than the left simply doubling down even more on a narrative that they’re losing badly. Just yell louder and more and hope the noise and the support from the establishment slows down their inexorable drive over the cliff.
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
