Some Genius Says Clinton Has 'Vagenda Of Manocide,' Internet Has Field Day
After a gun shop in Maine posts a sign accusing Hillary Clinton of having a "vagenda of manocide," Twitter explodes with vagenda jokes
“Vagenda of Manocide. Is it the name of a feminist metal band or biker gang? Maybe it’s the title of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie or the next “Game of Thrones” book. Twitter is giddily brainstorming possibilities, thanks to a now-viral image of a sign outside of a gun shop in Maine reading, “BEWARE THE BEAST HILDABEAST CLINTON AND ITS VAGENDA OF MANOCIDE.”
The sign went up at Gulf of Maine Gunsmithing back in 2014, according to the shop’s owner, Bill Darling, who was reached by phone by Vocativ. But it resurfaced on social media this week and has set off a tweetstorm about that unforgettable phrase, “vagenda of manocide.” Meanwhile, it appears someone bought the domain www.vagendaofmanocide.com and redirected it to the presidential candidate’s official fundraising page.
No doubt the most popular response to the sign has been to riff on the potential for a Vagenda of Manocide band of some sort — probably metal, maybe “post-riot grrrl punk,” definitely featuring only women. As @SinclairPup wrote, “I wish the people I follow could just get together and agree on what type of band#VagendaOfManocide is. I’m just so confused rn.” Some leapt ahead to contrarian cultural commentary: “some prefer Vagenda of Manocide’s earlier albums, before Hildabeast joined, but I think her shrill vocals rule,” wrote @nicepersonality.”
