So... funny story. I once saw this weirdass discussion on a political board (forgot which one it was - it's not one of the big names like DU or Free Republic) where a libertarian tried to use Ferguson as an example of why citizens should arm themselves. This would be bad enough, but then his opponent went and said that the police were justified in having military-grade equipment because of all those "gun-toting nutjobs" around... yeah. It was like falling down a rabbit hole.

i have this image now of some doofus sticking his head up his own ass but it’s also a rabbit hole so he goes on a magical adventure in libertarianland where the normal rules dont apply and innocent people are still getting their heads chopped off but he’s ok with that because there’s a caterpillar smoking legalized weed.

stop reblogging the fucking “polarized thinking” comic. it’s not from a concerned citizen who was wrongly accused. it’s literally from purplekecleon the known abuser with so many fucking testimonies against them from people who aren’t even in the ballpark of being involved. they are using you all and manipulating people into thinking they’re the good guy and that pengo’s just some jealous nutjob, when in reality they’re trying to fucking take legal action against pengo and THREATENING TO DOXX THEM.

this critique of call out culture has clearly gone far too off track when literal abusers are trying to join in on it. we need to stop and reexamine this whole movement at this point, because it has become so easy to take the good that was being done and use it for pure fucking evil and manipulation.

i don’t care what you think about the comic’s point. i don’t care if you want to debate it or agree. do not fucking give it exposure because if you do you are giving a disgusting person the power to say “see, look at this! all THESE people agree you should forgive me and take down your post!”

Okay, there’s low, and then there’s digging all the way to hell.

If what these “Men’s Rights” leaders said doesn’t make you sick then there’s something wrong with you.

“I don’t find it particularly hyperbolic for a man to say, ‘I’m not gonna give a damn about female rape victims anymore,’” Elam said in a videoposted Sunday on YouTube. “They have tons of money, of law enforcement, of special programs funded by the government, of social consciousness – schools have Take Back The Night rallies, everything you can possibly think of.”

Elam was responding to a profile published Sunday byThe Daily Beastabout John “The Other” Hembling, who was quoted as saying in a video that he didn’t“give a f*** about rape victims anymore.”

The men’s rights activist noted that Hembling, the editor-in-chief for A Voice For Men who’s been tapped to succeed Elam as the group’s leader, had since taken down the video from his own YouTube channel, although it remains online elsewhere.

“’John The Other’ makes a video and says, because he’s angry at dealing with these clowns, at doing this, that, ‘I don’t give a damn about rape victims,’ and it’s something to terrorize his reputation with,” Elam says. “I stand behind John for making that video.”

Are they lying? Did Elam really say this?

If he said this stuff then I can see no way that this is acceptable no matter what context surrounds this remark.

No decent human being ever says “I don’t give a damn about rape victims." I don’t care if the feminist zealots have abused the issue, or if they ignore male victims of rape, or if they excuse female rapists. I don’t care if women victims of rape have law enforcement to back them up - and Steubenville shows they don’t always have law enforcement to back them up, considering those rapists only got 2 years after they BRAGGED about it!!! And no, it also does not matter if men get falsely accused and nobody cares about them. It doesn’t matter what leads you down that road - when you stop caring about rape victims, you stop being a decent human being.

Yes, there is a terrible problem with feminists not advocating for male victims of rape. There is a terrible problem with feminists not helping to crack down on women who make false rape claims. Hell, feminists are hurting themselves when they don’t make a stink about women who make false rape claims. Women rape, too, and underaged boys who are victims of adult women rapists are victim-blamed by the State and ordered to pay child support. Men’s Rights groups are the only groups who are going to stand for these boys: we ain’t getting help from any women’s groups on that. BUT NONE OF THIS JUSTIFIES SAYING YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT WOMEN VICTIMS OF RAPE.

Would you say that if it was your mother who got raped? I think not.

Need I even post this? Apparently I must, because at least two self proclaimed leaders of the Men’s Rights movement have said this, not even 2 months ago as of this post. This shit happened while I was blogging like crazy on Tumblr and I never saw any MRAs protesting this. WHY???

We can’t be silent about this crap. Now I’ll retract my condemnation of Paul Elam and John Hembling if someone can prove to me that they never said this crap. But barring that… I never signed up for this bullshit when I pledged loyalty to the cause of men’s liberation.

These remarks deserve nothing short of mass protest among the Men’s Rights Movement. If this guy actually said this bullshit and you agree and you feel that we shouldn’t care about women victims of rape THEN WE DON’T NEED NO PARACHUTE, LET THAT FOLLOWER COUNT FALL.

Watch on

Warning. This video is offensive and I do not agree with its message. But, I’m sharing it anyway because … well, I just have to share it because I’m so stunned by the ignorance and hate.

There are lots of bronies that are kind of annoying. But, most of the time, I don’t mind them. I can put up with cringe-worthy stuff. I can put up with cloppers. I can put up with attention seekers. I can put up with the needless drama. None of that stuff bothers me.

This, however, does bother me. Watch this video at your own risk.

Two callers from last night's radio funtime...

  • DJ Shadow:A rubber chicken with a mullet?
  • DJ Ryan:Do you eat meat by any chance?
  • 1st Caller:What's that got to do with it?
  • DJ Ryan:Well it might have a lot to do with it, you know...oh look, a second caller...
  • Second Caller:GO VEGAN!
  • DJ Shadow:Indeed.
  • DJ Ryan:SEAN?!
  • 1st Caller:Sean? My name isn't Sean...
  • 2nd Caller:Sean Brennan you idiot.
  • DJ Ryan:No need to get testy with the them, they can't help it...
  • DJ Shadow:Being chased round by rubber chickens with mullets puts you off your head.
  • 2nd Caller:They're just sorry, but yeah GO VEGAN!
  • 1st Caller:I'm not eating nothing but plants and crap, that's not normal!
  • DJ Ryan:And this has become a nightmare...
  • DJ Shadow:Best or worst?
  • 2nd Caller:We live in Ohio, what do you think?
How to spot a sociopath - 10 red flags that could save you from being swept under the influence of a charismatic nut job

10 signs for spotting a sociopath

#1) Sociopaths are charming. Sociopaths have high charisma and tend to attract a following just because people want to be around them. They have a “glow” about them that attracts people who typically seek guidance or direction. They often appear to be sexy or have a strong sexual attraction. Not all sexy people are sociopaths, obviously, but watch out for over-the-top sexual appetites and weird fetishes.

#2) Sociopaths are more spontaneous and intense than other people. They tend to do bizarre, sometimes erratic things that most regular people wouldn’t do. They are unbound by normal social contracts. Their behavior often seems irrational or extremely risky.

#3) Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process such emotions. This allows them to betray people, threaten people or harm people without giving it a second thought. They pursue any action that serves their own self interest even if it seriously harms others. This is why you will find many very “successful” sociopaths in high levels of government, in any nation.

#4) Sociopaths invent outrageous lies about their experiences. They wildly exaggerate things to the point of absurdity, but when they describe it to you in a storytelling format, for some reason it sounds believable at the time.

#5) Sociopaths seek to dominate others and “win” at all costs. They hate to lose any argument or fight and will viciously defend their web of lies, even to the point of logical absurdity.

#6) Sociopaths tend to be highly intelligent, but they use their brainpower to deceive others rather than empower them. Their high IQs often makes them dangerous. This is why many of the best-known serial killers who successfully evaded law enforcement were sociopaths.

#7) Sociopaths are incapable of love and are entirely self-serving. They may feign love or compassion in order to get what they want, but they don’t actually FEEL love in the way that you or I do.

#8) Sociopaths speak poetically. They are master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running “stream of consciousness” monologue that is both intriguing and hypnotic. They are expert storytellers and even poets. As a great example of this in action, watch this interview of Charles Manson on YouTube.

#9) Sociopaths never apologize. They are never wrong. They never feel guilt. They can never apologize. Even if shown proof that they were wrong, they will refuse to apologize and instead go on the attack.

#10) Sociopaths are delusional and literally believe that what they say becomes truth merely because they say it! Charles Manson, the sociopathic murderer, is famous for saying, “I’ve never killed anyone! I don’t need to kill anyone! I THINK it! I have it HERE! (Pointing to his temple.) I don’t need to live in this physical realm…”

Watch Charles Manson saying this at the 3:05 mark of this YouTube video.

How to dispel illusion and get to the truthSociopaths are masters at weaving elaborate fictional explanations to justify their actions. When caught red-handed, they respond with anger and threats, then weave new fabrications to explain away whatever they were caught doing.

A sociopath caught red-handed with a suitcase full of cash he just stole, for example, might declare he had actually rescued the money from being stolen by someone else, and that he was attempting to find its rightful owner. He’s the hero, see? And yet, in reality, he will simply pocket the money and keep it. If you question him about the money, he will attack you for questioning his honesty.

Sociopaths are masters are presenting themselves as heroes with high morals and philosophy, yet underneath it they are the true criminal minds in society who steal, undermine, deceive, and often incite emotional chaos among entire communities. They are masters at turning one group of people against another group while proclaiming themselves to be the one true savior. Wherever they go, they create strife, argument and hatred, yet they utterly fail to see their own role in creating it. They are delusional at so many levels that their brains defy logical reasoning.

You cannot reason with a sociopath. Attempting to do so only wastes your time and annoys the sociopath.

In case you were uncertain that the craziest, most redneck assholes in America live in the parts of Oregon not named “Portland” or “Eugene,” here is your definitive proof.

Your editor is from Kansas; I know right-wing nutjobs. But there are things I’ve seen in Oregon that I’ve never seen anywhere else above the Mason-Dixon line, such as enormous, Perkins-sized Confederate flags, and this trailer. If only in photo form.

“Sandy Hook ‘truthers’ believe that the Newtown shooting never occurred or was part of a ‘false flag’ operation designed to open the door to the confiscation of all guns by the government.”

If this was even remotely true, when is that happening? Since Newtown, gun laws in most states have been relaxed and I see no evidence of the government coming for your guns.
