Feminists in general hate men and have a decided affinity for blaming them for all of women’s poor choices, but few feminists can match the bitter hatred of Amanda Marcotte. I’m far from the first person to note that feminist anger at men tends to reside in reverse proportion to the feminist’s possession of physical charms, but in Marcotte’s case, there may be a good explanation: her manly jawline and hirsute silhouette suggest in utero testosterone exposure at levels that have affected her brain structure.
She literally suffers from penis envy, and despises what she can never be. It’s a noted tendency in radical feminist circles.
Let’s look at her most recent screed at Salon, which, unfortunately provides rock solid evidence that whatever in utero testosterone exposure she may have suffered, it was insufficient to endow her with male rationality or capacity for logic.
A Modest Proposal: Trump has it all wrong – to prevent crime, we need to do some “exteme [sic] vetting” of men, If we need a police state to stop crime, the target shouldn’t be immigrants but those committing most crimes: men
Notice how Marcotte performs two elisions here: illegal immigrants become just immigrants, and she blurs the distinction between committing the most crime, and committing most crimes. It’s tempting to ascribe nefarious motives here, but I sincerely doubt Marcotte is doing any of this deliberately. She is simply not that intelligent, which is why she’s stuck writing clickbait drivel while her more talented (and mostly male) colleagues go on to more legitimate organizations. That must burn!
Donald Trump’s alarming speech on Thursday night was built around the claim that immigrants are a uniquely terrifying source of murder and mayhem and therefore, in the name of self-defense, the U.S. should expunge undocumented immigrants and narrow the standards for legal immigration.
Once again, illegal immigrants become immigrants for Marcotte. The best she can muster, in a post about criminal behavior, is to call illegal immigrants ‘undocumented. Marcotte appears not to notice that by refusing to name illegal immigrants as illegal, she is undermining her own argument that men commit most crimes. Are none of her ‘undocumented’ immigrants men, and do they not count? Does how we label criminals matter? Are men subjected to the label more frequently than women?
So many questions!
The problem with his argument — which is barely an argument and more a bunch of right-wing buzzwords expectorated at top volume — is that immigrants, undocumented or not, commit crime at lower rates than native-born people.
Marcotte’s source speculates that since one quarter of the immigrant population is made up of illegals, it’s impossible for Trump to be right about illegals committing crime at rates that exceed the native born and legal immigrant populations:
Except, oops. No it’s not. Why would it be? It makes no mathematical sense to even say that. And the math here is not complex. Most people can accept the following statement:
Pitbulls (or pick any other breed) represent a tiny fraction of all dog breeds, but commit the vast majority of fatal dog attacks.
Half of all gang members in LA are Hispanic. 33.7% of all federal inmates are Hispanic. Mexican drug cartels plant marijuana in US National Parks.
The facts suggest that Trump is right and illegal immigrants are indeed bringing crime, drugs and chaos. But like any good feminist, Marcotte never lets facts get in the way of indulging her hateful, black heart.
There are, however, two groups of people who really do commit crime, especially violent crime, at wildly different rates: Men and women.
Commit crime. Keep your eye on that assertion.
According to FBI crime statistics, men are arrested for roughly three-quarters of all crimes. When it comes to violent crime, the stats are even worse. Nearly 9 out of 10 people arrested for murder are male. Ninety-nine percent of rape arrestees are men. Men are arrested for 8 out of 10 aggravated assaults.
Did you see what she just did there? The people arrested for crimes automatically became the people convicted of committing the crimes.
If Trump is right and the crime rate is serious enough of a problem to compel us to abandon basic human rights so as to subject certain groups of people to monitoring and legal intimidation, then it’s not immigrants we should target. It’s men.
Women are far less likely to be charged with a crime, even when committing an identical offense. Women are far less likely to be convicted and less likely to serve jail time because male privilege or something.
Women sex predators are significantly less likely to be charged with a crime or convicted.
Women engaged in domestic violence against their partners are significantly less likely to be charged with a crime and under the Violence Against Women Act, may even have their male partners arrested and convicted when the males are the victims of female violence.
We already know feminists consider domestic violence against men to be hilarious.
If you count abortion, women murder at rates men can never, ever hope to replicate. Just over 14 000 people were murdered in the US last year. Some of those killed fell at the hands of women. In 2012, the Center for Disease Control reported 700 000 abortions and every single one of those babies fell at the hands of women. From 1973 – 2011, 53M babies were killed in abortion. And that’s just in the US.
Not even close.
Trump argued that all “energies of the federal government and legislative process” should be geared toward preventing immigrant-caused crime through extreme police-state measures — monitoring, draconian punishments, mass deportations, that sort of thing. The problem is that doing this won’t do much to reduce crime, since immigrants aren’t committing crimes in disproportionate numbers.
Except, yes, they are. Repeating a lie doesn’t magically make it true, Amanda.
You can read the rest of the article here, where Amanda goes on a gleeful diatribe about how men should be controlled and treated like animals, all based on the faulty assertions of her basic premise that men are evil, awful, horrible, violent beasts who hate women and want us all dead.
The irony of all ironies, of course, is that Marcotte and her ilk will line the streets three bodies deep to insist that America accept refugees and immigrants from misogynist shitholes like the Middle East, and all Marcotte’s sick, twisted, demented solutions for men will be carried out against women in this country, once the Muslim minority becomes a majority.
The very men that Marcotte despises with unrivaled passion are the men who will make certain she never ends up chained in a blue prison.
Quite frankly, I don’t know how men do it. How do you face the irrational, psychopathic hatred of man-jawed harpies like Marcotte and still agree to risk your lives and well-being to provide for their security? Women like Marcotte are violently embarrassing in just how wrong they are: Western, enlightened men are the source of everything good and strong and noble in our world.
The sane women of the world must not allow these twisted harridans to destroy our culture.
Say no to feminism.
Say yes to the future.
Say thank you to the men who will provide it for us.
And vote Trump.
Lots of love,
