So it turns out a Republican lawmaker founded /r/theredpill

Quote
Last November, voters in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region re-elected to the state house of representatives a man who appears to be one of the secret architects of the internet’s misogynistic “Manosphere.”

The homegrown son of a preacher, 31-year-old Robert Fisher is a Republican who represents New Hampshire’s Belknap County District 9. In addition to his legislative duties, Fisher owns a local computer-repair franchise, and in his spare time, seems to have created the web’s most popular online destination for pickup artistry and men’s rights activists, The Red Pill, according an investigation by the Daily Beast.

An investigation into Fisher’s online aliases found a trail of posts linking the lawmaker to the username Pk_atheist, the creator of The Red Pill—an online Reddit community of nearly 200,000 subscribers that promotes itself as a “discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.”

Quote
In manosphere-speak, the rabbit hole is feminism, which the red pill reveals to be a War on Men. In this reality, the “feminine imperative” reigns; masculinity is its victim. As a result of this power struggle, old gender dynamics formerly seen as mutually beneficial, such as marriage, have all but disappeared, but female expectations of a pedestalled life unfairly remain. A common refrain among men’s rights activists is “take the pussy off the pedestal.”

The Red Pill guides men as they become accustomed to this new “reality.” It advocates self-improvement: the importance of diet, exercise, and constant learning. But this community also subscribes to the beliefs that women lack both intelligence and substance, are programed to cheat on their partners, and expire after the age of 30. Its darkest sections are heavy with rape denial and apologia.

Quote
In a post from 2012, Fisher explained that the con “…is why feminism pushes to increase alimony and child support. In the USA where feminism is completely unchecked, women can meet another man and profit from having two providers instead of one. Alimony and child support will ensure her lifestyle isn’t the one that suffers. The only risk a woman has for leaving her husband is if she’s too old and ugly to hook another guy. But even then, the amount of money she can get from her ex-husband is almost criminal.”

On The Red Pill, Fisher commonly expressed disappointment that the institutions of marriage and religion were destroyed by women’s equality. He maintained that as a result of financial independence, women were no longer compelled to remain faithful and as a result, men needed to protectively adapt their sexual strategy.

“Marriage, and yes, female oppression, slut shaming, religion, these were all a means to control hypergamy [infidelity]. Marriages might be considered loveless, and women might have been unhappy, but for men it meant marriages that lasted, commitments that continued, and protection against the fickle whims of females,” Fisher wrote on The Red Pill in November 2012.

I must be doing something wrong. Just passed my 12th anniversary and have not yet resorted to slut-shaming or female oppression. I mean, maybe trapping women in loveless marriages and shoving them down into 2nd- or 3rd-class citizenship is one way to make a marriage last. But it seems a like a whole lot of not very rewarding work when you can get the same result just by not being an incredible asshole.

Behold my face of total and utter surprise.

From a quick google, I can't find much about fisher on a personal level. I do hope he's married because that's an incredible divorce waiting to happen now. With any luck this will kill his political career. I'm not putting any money on that though. Seems around 50% of the US, both sexes, agree with this line of horseshit.

Not married, but he has been claiming to be a Christian when he talked online all the time about being an atheist.

Also about how awesome rape is for the rapist. Sadly, I suspect the former will prove to be more damning.

On the plus side he's pretty effectively covered pissing of the right (atheism) and left (rape) in one fell swoop. That's almost impressive and will probably result in no-one being willing to defend the prick. If anyone notable does try to do so I'd guess it to be about a weeks wait to then find out what their reddit username is.

If you purport to have an argument against the population of TRP, you could at least do us the honor of disclosing what it is amidst all of your grandstanding.
Merely asserting that everybody is personally revolting to you adds nothing to this discussion, nor does appealing to your self-proclaimed authority on the subject.
It reminds me of when women typically chime in, just to hear themselves speak. You must think you had a salient point in there, since nobody here tells you no. But really, your chatter is inane.

Its full of dumb, who would have guessed?

He did step down as a mod last year.  But yes, the scrubbers were at work fast yesterday.  SRD has a lot of links and juicy quotes in their thread on the topic

Reckon he's Pk_atheist and Fk_GodFearing? Have we even seen his third normal form?

Also, it's New Hampshire, and as I recall that's the state the Libertarian Party was going to take over for the Free State Project. Maybe, he'll get a boost out of all this. Seems if any demo is going to say "good on ya" it'd be that one.
