Freedom From Atheism Foundation Doubles Down

TheTruePooka

The following blog is being posted to serve the purpose of providing a link to a private email exchange I had with one of the people behind the anonymous Freedom Freedom From Atheism Foundation.

Normally I don’t not post a private PM exchange like this, but when a person or group practices such a degree of deception and spreads lies about me (linked here) in such a malicious and deliberate fashion then they have forfeited the right to the normal considerations I give to all when it comes to private mail exchanges.

If not contacting a source to the FFAF is a; “red flag” then one must wonder what sort of flag is raised when the FFAF has a conversation with a source and then in spite of the information given they (the FFAF) lie and make up whatever fits their present agenda?

Why are #GamerGaters so quick to excuse an anti-Semitic caricature of Anita Sarkeesian that’s literally derived from Nazi propaganda?

we hunted the mammoth

The other day, I posted a screenshot of an 8chan comment featuring the drawing above, a crude caricature of Anita Sarkeesian that’s a not-very-subtle variation on a racist and anti-Semitic cartoon that originally ran in a neo-Nazi newspaper.

Here’s the original, in all its crapitude:

Dean Esmay Vs. the Princess Studies Professor

Way to go Dean

we hunted the mammoth

A Voice for Men’s media blitz continues apace. On Sunday, fresh on the heels of his colleague Robert O’Hara’s often cringeworthy Al Jazeera interview, AVFM “managing editor” Dean Esmay appeared on the unfortunately named “Let it Rip,” a news show on the local Fox affiliate in Detroit, to discuss that upcoming “Men’s Issues” conference we’ve been hearing so much about.

The excitable Esmay, wearing a tie at least a foot longer than necessary and facing off against a far more polished Heather Dillaway, a feminist sociologist from Wayne State University, did not exactly dispel the notion that the Men’s Rights movement isn’t ready for its close up just yet.

Esmay robotically rattled off an assortment of the sort of phony “factoids” that go over well only in the echo chambers of the Men’s Rights movement, and responded to questions not with answers but with rapidly regurgitated talking points —…

A Brief Reflection on the “Nice Guy Myth”

Again Pooka hits the nail on the head

TheTruePooka

I’d like to take this moment while we’re all thinking about “Nice Guy” Eliott Rodger and his revenge-killing spree against women (for the crime of not being his fuck-toys) to flashback to this once popular video that tapped into the; “Nice Guy myth”. A video that catapulted a Youtube content provider to stardom (or what passes for stardom in the online activism community).


Take special note of the underbar where the video maker wistfully asks;

niceguy

Perhaps “feminists” find “nice” guys “unfuckable” because their brains are letting them know they aren’t really nice guys at all but sociopaths with anger and resentment issues.

Considering the video has hundreds of thousands of views and was well received by the MRM community?

nice guy

I’m thinking it may be time to apply some critical thinking to the concept of “The Nice Guy” and put an end to this socially damaging concept once and for all.

There’s a NEW SKEPCHICK in town & BASH A BITCH MONTH REVISTED!

I think this nicely sums up my feelings as well.

TheTruePooka

Courtney Caldwell has joined the ranks of the skeppchicks!

By way of support I’m linking all to her first blog post here along with my response to a person in her comment section where the discussion on recent anti-PUA  (a spin-off of the MRM) supporter “Alpha Male” Elliot Rodgers has gotten rather heated. For those not in the know, Elliot Rodgers is a self proclaimed “nice guy” who did a video where he wistfully asks women why they can’t see he’s a nice guy… right before he goes out on a killing spree to kill women as retribution for refusing to have sex with him (I kid you not).

Cliven Bundy on the BLACK problem: Translation Found

TheTruePooka

Thank GOD W.F. Price gallantly offered to act as Cliven Bundy’s translator for those poor liberals out there who went all aflutter at good ol’ boy Cliven’s mention of the word NEGRO because clearly everyone’s problem is Cliven’s use of “archaic English” (1950s is archaic?) and it has nothing to actually do with the content and context of his words given his actions and political views! *Whew* I’m glad he cleared that up!clive

Alas, however, Price’s offer of an explanation and translation of Cliven’s language fails on three levels:
