MRM Displays Power, Professionalism at Rally!

Fathers Rights Activists Grow Stronger, And Hold Rally To Make Family Law Accountable

Men's rights activists (MRAs) have been insisting that membership in their Men's Rights Movement is skyrocketing and their power is growing by leaps and bounds. I was skeptical until the recent rally in the Van Nuys/Sherman Oaks Park. Two LA-based men's rights organizations, Fathers4Justice and the National Coalition of Free Men, combined their membership and resources in an historic show of force that surely sent shock waves through the feminist community.


According to this story by Ray Blumenhorst, "the number of people coming to our rally was equal to, or greater than, other rallies," accounting for a showing of a record 8 participants. By combining the resources of the two powerhouse groups, the number of folding tables and coolers doubled (to 4 and 2, respectively), and the number of scary masks reached an unprecedented 4 total, including 2 zombies, a pirate skull and a jackass.

According to Blumenhorst: "A reckoning is in order in family courts all across America." The power rally, which engaged dialogue with at least two families, undoubtedly sent shockwaves through the family court system, and signaled the level of professionalism and seriousness the men's rights movement has achieved.

Can Christ save "Robin Steele"?

Hate leads straight to hell, and Robin Steele's "womenofsteele" blog is pure hate.

In order for Robin Steele to be saved she would have to renounce her hate, repend for her sins, and make restitution to those who she has harmed.

Don't look for Robin Steele to end her sins of hate any time soon. Christ can not save a misandrist feminist. Straight to hell is where she belongs.

Madame,
Your attempts at levity in face of the unfortunate situation faced by hundreds of thousands of men who have been treated unfairly by the justice system is utterly reprehensible.

You and your cohorts desire sympathy when you are the victims of injustice, yet you cannot find sufficient humanity with which to offer the same when those who have been disenfranchised are male.

You are nothing more than a glaring embarrassment to the few good women left in this world.

Men would like very much to love and care for women. Your protracted campaign to make that impossible is succeeding beyond all imaginings.

Congratulations! You have actively contributed to the forces that are steadily driving what little remains of our society apart, and hastening our dissent into barbarism. Thanks so much for helping to ruin everything for my family, you selfish bitch.

If I was better versed in international law, I would strongly consider submitting your name to the Hague for crimes against humanity.

Good day.

Unlike the Women's Movement that has been feeding at the Public Trough. Meaning Tax Payer funded. The Men's Movement has become a grass roots, truly independent movement. Men who see the inequities in the system are speaking out. The growth of Men's blogs in the last year has been amazing.

The Women's Movement primarily angry Lesbians and Communists. Seized the Domestic Abuse Industry as its funding mechanism. Erin Pizzey observed this back in the early 1970s when she was ejected from the Refuge she founded in the UK. And recoiled in horror as Man hating Lesbians waged a Gender War against Decent Men.

Betty Friedan herself worried that the angry Lesbians who took over the Feminist movement would damage the relations between the Genders. This has in fact come to pass.

The Men's Movement is a Grass Roots movement as of yet lacking funding. It is decades behind the Feminist movement. And is trying to find its core idealogy. As Men's Rights Activists have many different viewpoints.

If you'd actually read my blog you'd see that I agree that the justice system is unfair towards men and should be changed. But what is reprehensible is the delusional and impotent approach of the MRAs, and their unwillingness to do what's necessary to create needed change. This year in MD alone, 3 fathers murdered their beautiful children. And you hold 8-person rallies in gorilla suits? Your approach is as professional and effective as the 30-year-old clip art clowns on AngryHarry.com.

Read my post on Angry Harry vs. Feministing and you'll see the difference in professionalism between the two sides and why feminists are effective and you're not. You hide in anonymity, make up victimization fantasies, and spout pseudo-history about the Hague, and war crimes, male oppression, and dream of fantasy revolutions that will somehow happen without any effort on your part - just cuz you say it will happen. And meanwhile you do nothing, accomplish nothing, but read the daily stories and feel sorry for yourselves.

Listen to Khankrumthebulgar, powerful CEO of three companies, blaming "lack of funding." It's always an excuse, always some external force that's victimizing you. It's not that you would rather whine and complain, beat your chest online in macho anonymity, talk about armed uprisings or importing wives from overseas.

Keep acting like clowns and you'll keep getting laughed at. You think I'm the enemy? I'm your wake-up call.

Oh really? Do you mean actual change, or just change on feminist terms? Well since you seem to know it all, what would you have us do?

We try to engage with feminists, and appeal to reason and rationality, and we're ignored.

We try to engage feminists in debate, and we're either shouted down, censored, or ridiculed for being "afraid of strong women."

We try to organize, arrange meetings and protests, and we're branded misogynists, or hate-mongers!

We try to appeal to our respective government bodies, and we're constantly blocked by highly-placed feminists.

We try to fight in court, and consistently fail because both the law, and judicial opinions are already biased against us.

We start websites and blogs, and we're told that they're "unprofessional," and "amateurish." Pardon us for devoting time to our families.

We advocate resorting to violence, and we're told "that's not the right way to do things."

Well madame, I'm not convinced that it's the right way to do things either, but at least violence gets more results than any other strategy we've tried! Seems to me that violence is becoming pretty damned necessary!

You hide in anonymity, make up victimization fantasies, and spout pseudo-history about the Hague, and war crimes, male oppression, and dream of fantasy revolutions that will somehow happen without any effort on your part - just cuz you say it will happen.

You so dearly wish. I am not a leader of men, I am too much of a lone-wolf for that. I understand and accept this. If I WAS a leader of men, the revolution would start tomorrow. I am however entirely willing to pick up a gun and make things happen if necessary. Like I said, results.

It's always an excuse, always some external force that's victimizing you.

And your point is? Ever hear of a little feminist canard called "Patriarchy?"

Keep acting like clowns and you'll keep getting laughed at. You think I'm the enemy? I'm your wake-up call.

You're not laughing, you're afraid. You're worried that someone might actually begin a protracted campaign of violence against people like you. And perhaps you should be afraid of this, because we certainly seem to be headed in that direction! Personally, it's not my choice, I would hope that reason would prevail, but somebody who isn't me, decided stubbornness and stupidity are greater virtues than enlightenment, thoughtfulness, and flexibility.

But. Ultimately, you play the hand you're dealt.

Unlike the Feminist movement that claims oppression of Women. And is funded with Taxpayers Dollars. The Men's Movement has no intentions of becoming a parasite on the Republic and continuing to bleed it dry.

Feminists apparently cannot face reality. As their Demands for Reproductive Choice has aborted the very people who will pay their Social Security Retirement? Brilliant tactical move there.

Men are practical and reasonable. And are not trying to take money from the Taxpayers. Unlike the never ending demands of Feminists. And although it may take longer to reach critical mass. It will not and cannot be stopped. As it is not an elitist movement led by 2% of the populace. And funded at the largess of Taxpayers.

Funny thing. If the Men's Movement was so irrelevant we would be ignored completely. Yet we have two Syndicated Radio Shows about Men's Issues. And Marc Rudov debating Lis Wiehl weekly on Neil Cavuto's show on Fox. Marc has addressed VAWA, IMBRA, Family Courts, Workplace Sexual double standards issues Men face daily.

Worried Robin? That Men are no longer silent as they were for decades? Get used to it. That it does not meet your standards. Who cares? You don't define my masculinity. I don't answer to you and don't care what you think.

The ad hominem attacks, insults,jests, are not working. They are just a weak and intimidated soul lashing out at Men. More and More Men are coming around to our way of thinking. We are not going away.

I have seen reports of rallies being held by feminist or liberal groups in which the number attending as greatly inflated.

I do however admit that most of the rallies by men are not well attended. There are several reasons for this.

Feminist groups often get tax payer money to help with their cost. I do not know of one men's group that has gotten a dime for any rally they have had.

Feminist groups also get a lot of major media press coverage. We have not been able to get much if any.

In fact, I could not even place a PAID ad in a couple of newspapers because it was "too inflammatory"

Yea I guess they are right...just look at anytime a man says I have been abused and watch the feminist ruckus that follows.

This was, of course, not one of NCFM-LA's serious rallies, it was a small picnic in the park. NCFM-LA has had much larger rallies that have been aired on CNN, like this one http://www.warrenfarrell.com/videos/cnn8_27.mpg

Not to mention all their other media work. In October 2007 they generated 7 university campus newspaper stories on male DV victims that quoted NCFM extensively. http://www.ncfmla.org/media_coverage.html

But when it comes to rallies, MRAs in India are starting to take the cake. http://www.outlookindia.com/full.asp?fodname=20071203&fname=Husband+(F)&sid=1

And then there's the MRAs in Mexico

Does anyone remember the feminist demonstration that was supposed to stop the Masters Golf Turnament a couple of years ago? The leadership of an association of women's domination groups told the press that thousands of women would demonstrate because the Agusta National Golf Club won't admit females. When the day came, reporters outnumbered the fembitches who showed up. The few fembabes hung around for a couple of hours and went home.

What it turned out to be was a very public naitonal demonstion of the failed power of feminazi to mobilize and shut down a men's golf club. Agusta National had told the fembitches to buzz off and came out heros, even in the leftist media.

The times they are a changing.

Even Rush Limbaugh has been telling anti-feminsit jokes this week. He's become blatant about his objection to female advocates.

By comparison to other media, the feminist NY Times gets about 1,000,000 readers per week. Rush gets about 20,000,000 listeners per day.

The NY Times has actually come around a bit. They used to refuse to print anything from the men's rights side no matter how credible. But lately they have printed good articles on the public neglect of men's health, and also ran a good review of Warren Farrell's "Why Men Earn More" and allowed Farrell to also print an op ed on the topic. Though they're still biased, that's a big improvement. By contrast, the Los Angeles Times and Washington Post are still way behind.

To me, this is not about left/right, but about fairness, objectivity, truth, balance and common sense. Things most gender feminists totally lack.

It is only 1 week until

International Marc Lepine Day.

If you MEN don't have your decorations up it's time to get going. Light the lights. Hang the banners. Wave the flags. The war against men is no longer just a one sided destruction with men being brutalized and destroyed. From December 6 onward, every feminist knows that her evil may be opposed, that she can not continue to dominate, suppress, and sweep men aside with impunity. On December 6 the tide of destruction began to turn. On December 6 Marc Lepine took up arms against the femiNazi onslaught and laid waste to feminists.

{Hoists a glass} Here is to Marc Lepine, MAN, hero, and martyr for the end of oppression.

"The NY Times has actually come around a bit."

Even at the Times, if you lose 2-5% of your customers year after year after year, it begins to add up after a while. Feminism is dead. All across the nation MEN are cancelling our subscriptions to the hate speech misandrist rags that once were dominant in news. They are becoming irrelevant as feminist hate has becoming history. People just don't buy it any more.
