One of Orwell's most famous quotes could be the tagline for the entire manosphere:
"In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
It seems to be the case that the revolution has arrived...the manosphere has gone viral, and the knowledge of our issues has crossed over. The red pill is reaching crack cocaine epidemic status on the 'street' of teh interwebz.
This is precisely what I believe is behind the $LPC's recent listing of the manosphere for inclusion as a "hate" and "extremist" movement.
For years, the manosphere was fringe. You couldn't find serious discussions about our Brave New World Order and it's oppression of the male gender anywhere else in cyberspace.
Anytime you went to any mainstream news or special interest site or forum, any idea or thought that was posted that ran counter to mainstream, feminist approved, politically correct doublethink, used to be either quickly censored, or inundated with denunciations of misogyny, sexism and/or homophobia by other commenters.
This no longer happens. Articles and blog postings at mainstream sites that adhere to the politically correct, feminist-approved line, are regularly inundated with "red pill" comments. Many comments often contain links to various manosphere sites. More and more people are being exposed to the politically incorrect ideas, and it can no longer be ignored. To reiterate a point I made back in 2009, when the "roissysphere" first emerged:
Awareness is proliferating.
I don't believe "Activism" -- in the sense of fomenting a grass roots movement to build a groundswell of support to institute legal and cultural changes -- is ever going to realistically solve the problems many MRA/MGTOW bloggers have been writing about for years now. The feminist zeitgeist is too firmly entrenched into our mainstream culture...an inoperable cancer.
No, it is my firm contention that the only real and meaningful way in which the MRA blogosphere CAN effect real change, is on an individual level:
To raise awareness of the truth of the reality that we all live in.
To enable people to see things clearly, so that when they make goals and try to direct their lives towards achieving them, they do so knowing the full score so they can avoid many of the pitfalls our BraveNewWorldOrder has created to entrap us all in our deliberately distorted and contorted understanding of the gender roles and how they affect our lives.
So now comes time for the attacks. Make no mistake, the $LPC is just the first stage.
Soon, the real world action is going to take place. This is the modus operandi of organizations like the $LPC.
First, they identify the most prominent sites in the manosphere...than they attempt to tie it into previous acts of violence. As I commented over at A Voice for Men:
"...the $PLC essentially seeks to use the exact same tactic Bill Clinton used to try and tarnish the entire right wing talk radio genre with Tim McVeigh’s bombing of the OKC Fed building.
It is by far the most ominous of the 3 articles posted…this is going to be their primary tactic moving forward.
They are attempting to tie Thomas Ball’s suicide, and the Sodini, Lepine and Darren Mack murders as the actions of men “instigated” by MRM bloggers.
Note the final sentence: “But she did not, becoming instead the latest in a long, sad line of victims of women-hating men.”
There you have it.
We are all now “women-hating men” and being associated with “women-hatred” we are de facto guilty of instigating murder and domestic violence."
Mark my words...the next time some Father driven to a breaking point by the family court system goes berserk and does something murderous, some group like the $PLC is going to file a lawsuit against The Spearhead or IMF or AVFM and try to hold them liable for "inciting" violence with "hate speech." This is how they will divert the attention away from the realities of the system and it's role in pushing men into acts of violence...by blaming it on those of us who are pointing out the truth.
Coming soon - mention of manosphere websites on television news broadcasts and mainstream media publications, portraying it in a similar light to other "homegrown terrorist" groups like White Nationalists and neo-nazi groups.
The FBI, or DHS will be "concerned" about the role the "internet" is playing in violence against women, and some sort of legislation will be proposed to stop the "hate."
Ladies and Gentlemen of the "manosphere," we have arrived.
