A couple days back, Newsweek reports:

Feminist activists on Sunday are planning to commemorate last year's Women's March, the response to the election of President Donald Trump that was widely regarded as the biggest demonstration in U.S. history.

As they do so, the so-called alt-right—an anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic movement that has struggled to recruit women—is aiming to co-opt this political moment with a series of stunts, including spreading propaganda and a counterdemonstration in Knoxville, Tennessee. This targeting of a feminist event is part of an ongoing pattern of misogynistic behavior in the movement, according to activists and a rights group that spoke to Newsweek.

[...] Trolls from 4chan, an imageboard website that is popular with the alt-right, are planning to post signs at women's studies departments on college campuses Sunday with the hashtag #mybordermychoice, a deliberate perversion of the abortion-rights slogan "my body my choice," according to a series of posts on the site and research conducted by antifascist activists.

[...] Lecia Brooks of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a rights group, told Newsweek that Heimbach [Leader of the Traditionalist Workers' Party] is "no defender of women," referring to altercations involving the opposite sex he has had at demonstrations.

Heimbach replied to that notion by saying legal abortion and illegal immigration were victimizing the unborn and women, and that "women have had their femininity put under attack by a culture that treats them as either sex objects or as mere economic cogs in the capitalist system." Heimbach is a critic of the capitalist system while also being a critic of socialism, and views a "national socialism" system that includes only white non-Jews as an alternative to both. He said the policies of his group were structured to "empower women to their God given honorable place as true equals to men in society through their unique role as mothers and wives." To be clear, he is an ardent critic of contemporary feminism.

Message received, very clear.

    At a short first, they might be happier.

      Three men dressed in black walked into a hospital and headed towards the front desk. Even a cursory glance would tell one that these men were dangerous. One of the men pulls a large amount of money out of his pocket and hands it to the nurse at the front desk. The man holding the money says, while wearing an evil grin, "You know..." A disgusting smile appears on the nurse's face, and she then accepts the money. All three men travel to a particular room in the hospital...

      Soon after, a woman walks up to the front desk to see one of her family members. The woman tells the lady at the front desk who she wishes to visit, but the receptionist simply gasps. "That room was Marked By 'P'! You can't go in there now!" the nurse screams.

      Elsewhere, the three men were now naked in a certain room. That room had a male patient who was unconscious due to drugs the doctors gave him at the behest of the men. The three of them were all raping the patient in various different ways. One man was was raping the patient's ass. Another man had slit open the man's belly and was jabbing his dick inside it. The last man was shoving his genitals in the patient's face repeatedly. All three of them would shout "Utilize like this!" at random intervals.

      In the very same room, there were men who looked to be employees from a cleaning company. These employees were testing upright vacuums to see which one was most effective at removing dirt and grime from a rug placed in the room. The cleaning company employees would discuss the technical details of the vacuums they were testing amongst themselves, all the while ignoring the men raping the patient as if they simply did not exist.

      Finally, the three men were done raping the patient. "Garbage has met its use..." one of them said. Before they departed, they shoved medical knives and needles into the patient's asshole.

      After the men left, the sign on the outside of the door to the room they were in instantly changed from a number to the word "USED". The woman who wanted to visit a family member walked up to the room, read the sign, and looked absolutely disgusted. She then walked away, as though there was nothing of value in that room any longer.

      100% agree... No women -> no children. No children -> no more people!

      I guess my main concern is like that of a farmer... we want to breed in desirable traits, and breed out undesirable traits... which we have not been having much success at... we seem to be doing the exact opposite! We seem determined to save our drug babies, encourage welfare kids, but keep the people who have the trait of being "industrially productive" doing just that - toiling all day making a buck for someone else - and avoiding reproduction because of the financial concerns of having a family / losing work hours.

    It's essentially a straw man. Oh no, there is a Nazi behind every corner! All sorts of unrelated political views get lumped together and slapped with the "Nazi" label to make sure nobody dares to consider any of the many different political views.

    Meanwhile, what is actually happening in the world? Women in Iran are protesting against head coverings, and we hear not a peep from the left. Trump visits Saudi Arabia, and soon afterward the kingdom decides to let women drive. Trump has lots of women working for him. We now have the lowest female unemployment in 18 years.

    Last year's march was organized by a sharia supporter. You can support rights for women or you can support sharia. You can't honestly do both.

    There is another march, a really huge one, that happens about the same time every year. It never gets any news coverage. Last year, the VP spoke at it. This year, Trump spoke via video link. Unlike the woman's march, which left trash everywhere, this one keeps things clean. Guessed it yet? It's the March for Life. Lots of women were there.

          Here's how we operated. I had accidentally knocked up a Gook in Los Angeles and was forced to swear a blood-oath to her family. My friend Schlomo, Jr. is friends with a Black man with a clean criminal record. All these people live in Los Angeles. Schlomo, Sr. is a high-powered Jewish lawyer. Schlomo, Sr. lets Schlomo, Jr.'s Black friend drive the expensive Mercedes around town for no apparent reason.

          The cop lights up the Black man in the Schlomo Mercedes because a Black man with an afro isn't exactly a "Schlomo Goldstein" type.

          Black man complies, Schlomo sues the city on behalf of the disenfranchised Black man for tens of thousands of dollars a pop and keeps on groovin'.

      Women in Iran are protesting against head coverings

      I've been looking for news sources lately. Which sources covered this?

      It's the March for Life. Lots of women were there.

      Yes. I'm familiar with the type. More than you can imagine….

      I believe a libertarian framework will help out here. A woman has the right to withdraw life support at any time from the being growing within her (and also the right to modify her reproductive cycle with medical treatment if she does not like the way it works out of the box). These are both 9th Amendment rights in my analysis, but the Supreme Court apparently doesn't believe in that amendment, so instead we get Roe v. Wade. Either way, I don't believe our favorite “violently imposed monopoly” in the USA has the power to compel a person to provide life support to another person.

      I would recommend further research into artificial wombs. Even better! It would be ideal to advance the state of medical technology such that a womb can be grown from stem cells or harvested from a donor and implanted into a man. I believe there is already the capability to perform fully-capable womb transplants into womyn-born-womyn. Advance that technology a bit, and then you will be able to have all the white babies you want without needing a violently imposed monopoly to deny women fundamental rights.

      Uh… just one thing. I'm pontificating within a libertarian context, so like hell I'm going to pay for your babies.

      I'd also like to rebut TFS.

      [Heimbach] said the policies of his group were structured to "empower women to their God given honorable place as true equals to men in society through their unique role as mothers and wives."

      Oh fuck you, Heimbach. [ ] War is peace! [x] Freedom is slavery! [x] Ignorance is strength!

      Also, I'd like to point one more thing out, because the nature of the AC's comment here raises an important point.

      To be clear, [Heimbach] is an ardent critic of contemporary feminism.

      Well, Michael Edison Hayden of Newsweek, do you ever present criticism of feminism that isn't cartoonishly evil? World Socialist Web Site, while I'm not certain if I'm missing a hidden message without knowing a lot more about ICFI, has had continuing coverage of #MeToo with far more cogent criticisms. You want the public nice and conditioned that only evil people would ever oppose feminism, don't cha?

      Makes this whole questionable business with #MeToo all the more suspicious. It'll be fun to see how some of the allegations that have been denied will pan out when the wrongful termination lawsuits begin….

      Because we don't only print those stories that you like or which support your political leanings; other people have a different point of view. But you are doing the right thing. You are giving your views in the comments which is exactly what they are designed for. So, criticise the story content by all means, but that doesn't mean shooting the messenger.

      You have obviously not been following the discussion on another thread [soylentnews.org] about how we allegedly 'censor' the left wing by not posting stories seen from their viewpoint. As long as stories meet the requirements of all submissions they are considered for publication. SN does not support any particular political party or stance, and you should see the content of the many stories that we reject if you think that this one is bad. However, the reporting for this story is from another source, appears to be accurate and factual, and can generate a decent discussion if the community wishes it so to do. Resorting to taking strong political positions and mud-slinging would not be what I am hoping to see here.

      I will refrain from making my own views on this topic known. My job is to put the stories out there for the community to discuss.

          Firstly, I think that there is very little in the political submissions that would have been covered by the 'interesting to us' umbrella. But since before the US elections many of the submissions were not 'of interest to us' but it was felt that they still should have place where they could be discussed. If the editors only posted stories that clearly fall under the older definition then we would have very few political stories at all.

          Secondly, the events at Charlottesville changed the landscape somewhat, even to the extent that reporting on events in the US increased here in Europe and elsewhere. Now we have a possible documented warning that similar events might be about to take place again. If nothing happens then nothing (apart from a lot of hot air in the comments) is lost. But if something does happen then the whole world will want to know the whys and wherefores, particularly if there has been advance notification and the appropriate authorities appear to be caught with their trousers down again.

          Thirdly, in some parts of Europe at least, this entire alt-right phenomenon in the US appears to be partly a product of the actions of Trump and his refusal to condemn those extremists because that might affect his voters. At Davos this week, Trump was forced to claim that he knew nothing about the background to the videos he retweeted that had originated from extreme right wing groups in Europe. As a US President many feel he shouldn't be tweeting such things from a position of ignorance, and such actions damage US standing in the world. If you want other nations to follow you, you have to act like a leader, not an ill-informed bully.

          Finally, as I have already stated elsewhere, it is not SN's job to decide which political party it wants to support. It is, and should remain, entirely neutral in this regard. Whether I like the message or not is actually irrelevant - I have to serve the community honestly and impartially. This is the price of having a political nexus, and we have to live with the discussions and strong views of our community that result from it.

            Political discussion moving online and free speech were always of 'interest to us' back on the green site. Before the dark times, before Facebook.

            I'm not sure any of us could have predicted 2016 as recently as 2014. The last 10 years saw little new in tech while the server space fragmented into clouds and silly "frameworks". The Meltdown / Spectre stories here were perhaps the best commented since the last systemd story. The increase in politics is (I propose) due in part to the necessity of discussion as a response to polarising mainstream narratives.

      Indeed. Let's see here:

      >Feminist activists on Sunday are planning to commemorate last year's Women's March,
      >the response to the election of President Donald Trump that was widely regarded as
      >the biggest demonstration in U.S. history.

      Oh yes, I remember now: the march led by one Ms. Linda Sarsour, a well-known islamist, sharia apologist and anti-semite, reviled by muslims and non-muslims alike. The same Linda Sarsour who tweeted that she'd like to confiscate the genitals of women such as Ayaan Hirshi Ali, since she dares to criticize political islam.

      >As they do so, the so-called alt-right—an anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic movement that
      >has struggled to recruit women—

      You can call the alt-right anti-immigration and be mostly correct, but anti-semitic? Sure, there are race realists and anti-semites among the alt-right, but there are plenty of others too. But we don't want to acknowledge that, since that would prevent us from tarring them all with the same brush. Can't have that now, can we?

      >Trolls from 4chan, an imageboard website that is popular with the alt-right, are planning

      ...something ominous, surely, since the messageboard is "is popular with the alt-right", which we've already equated with Nazis. And surely, some people were observed drinking coffee and eating burgers, both well-documented as being popular within the alt-right. We are clearly being overrun by fascists!

      >according to a series of posts on the site and research conducted by antifascist activists.

      Really? I'd really like to see this research and learn more about these activists. They wouldn't by any chance be associated with Antifa, an incredibly violent, Marxist terrorist organization? (And that's according to their own web page, except the "terrorist" part which is how the Dept. of Homeland Security classifies them.)

    Trolls from 4chan, an imageboard website that is popular with the alt-right, are planning to post signs at women's studies departments on college campuses Sunday with the hashtag #mybordermychoice, a deliberate perversion of the abortion-rights slogan "my body my choice," according to a series of posts on the site and research conducted by antifascist activists.

        (I'm sorry to cause this to decent soylentils, but I think the today's hour of head-from-ass extraction have come for TMB.)

        So, Buzz, here, I'll let them speak for themselves [tradworker.org]

        Pussy Hats and Pitchforks

        “Whoever can conquer the street will one day conquer the state” — Dr. Joseph Goebbels
        ...
        Our ideas as National Socialists are objectively correct, the Left cannot debate us in any meaningful way because their ideas are based on flimsy one-sided emotional appeals and outright lies. They try to “No Platform” our movement because they know that they cannot defeat our ideals of Faith, Family, and Folk. We reject their attempts to silence us, and instead march ever forward for the cause of morality, virtue, and a future for our people.

        As National Socialists, one of our most important values is the cultivation of life. Natural Law and God have created a specific role for both women and men, and both genders must work together to complement one another and work together as a team.
        ...
        Feminism and abortion are opposed to life in every way. The gift of having children is a blessing for woman, and the entire nation, and it should be promoted as truly sacred. It is National Socialists and National Socialists alone who truly fight for women, because not only do we support women having children, we also promote policies to provide extensive care, community, support, and dignity for mothers and their families.
        ...
        Our nation has killed more unborn children since Roe v. Wade than the German and Russian people lost in both military and civilian deaths in the Second World War. The most dangerous place to be in America is not on the streets of Chicago or New York, but in their mother’s womb. This is unacceptable for any free nation to accept the murder of its children. These abortion policies must be ended.

        This ends here, no longer will the enemies of our people be allowed to parade unopposed, no longer will our children be killed without advocates willing to fight for them. We are the breaking of the new dawn for our people, of a new and healthier world for men, women, and children.

        As the defenders and advocates of women and our children, the Traditionalist Worker Party is taking a stand in Knoxville Tennessee on Sunday January 21st against the proposed feminist march and in support of the March for Life being held the same day. Any movement that doesn’t defend the sanctity of life is not a movement worth having. If we are to build a free nation for our children, we must first secure life for our children.
        ...
        All interested comrades should begin vetting with our Knoxville Sign-Up Form.

        We will be assembling at noon on Sunday the 21st and will be active for several hours. All comrades should be in uniform, if possible (or at least solid black with no pre-approved flags, symbols, or accessories), and be prepared for cold weather. Traditionalist Worker Party comrades in good standing are also invited to attend a meeting, cookout, and oath ceremony outside of Knoxville on Saturday the 20th.

        Unless you think the TWP will wear pussy hats (do you?), I must surmise they publicly declare they'll come with pitchforks.

        So, TMB, you reckon a pitchfork is the appropriate implement to wind-up the feminists?
        Just asking, you see, maybe I'll send you one in exchange for some photos of you using it the way you see fit... careful, though, some uses of pitchforks may be frowned upon by the... ummm... "violently imposed monopoly".

        (I'd grin ... but I can't... this is too sad, to say the least. Apologies once again, this is straight from the proud-nazi horse's mouth, no other honest interpretation possible)

                    Apart from "lumping" themselves with the real, existing and acting nazi (in contrast with a comment suggesting a denial of nazi existence), the quoted para names them "Trolls from 4chan".

          Who the fuck is Heimbach?!

          Meet "the poor guy" Matthew Heimbach [rationalwiki.org]

          Matthew Heimbach (born April 8, 1991) is a young white separatist, Neo-Nazi, racist Confederate supporter and co-founder of the Traditionalist Worker Party and the Traditionalist Youth Network. He is considered a white nationalist by the Southern Poverty Law Center.[1]

          Heimbach attracted some notoriety after founding a "White Student Union" at Towson University (Baltimore, Maryland) in 2012, and again in 2014 when he joined the Eastern Orthodox Church and was subsequently excommunicated for promoting racism. Heimbach's fellow neo-Nazis, on the other hand, have attacked him for not being racist enough. The poor guy just can't win.

          America killer
          Heimbach is known for chanting "Death To America", which to him means that he wants to move to Iran the United States divided up into racially homogeneous mini-states, one of which would be called "Avalon". TheTraditionalist Youth Network encourages supporters to become knights of Avalon. They must be Roxy Music fans. [2] [aljazeera.com][3] [tradyouth.org]

          Pushy
          In 2016, two criminal complaints were filed against him for shoving a protester at a Donald Trump rally in Kentucky; at least one other complaint was filed in connection with that March 1st rally.[4] [courier-journal.com][5] [lex18.com] During 2017 trial proceedings for that incident, he claimed along with one other of his co-defendants that co-defendant Trump incited the violence.[6]

          Traditionalist Worker Party
          The Traditionalist Worker Party (TWP) is Mr. Heimbach's Neo-Nazi,[note 1] Third Positionist party.[note 2] It was founded with Matthew Parrott and Tony Hovater in 2015.[7] [splcenter.org][8] [washingtonpost.com] TWP's core principles are those of protecting Faith (mainly Christian faith), Family (nuclear family) and Folk (not all folk of course, only white folk). Its slogan is close to the Nazis Kinder, Küche, Kirche mantra. It's a spin-off of the Traditionalist Youth Network. The logo of the Traditionalist Workers Party is a mechanical wheel (representing industry) and a pitchfork (representing agriculture). Hovater was featured in a puff piece by the New York Times in November 2017 that was widely criticized.[9] [nytimes.com][8] [washingtonpost.com]

          North Korea supporter
          Oddly enough, despite North Korea showing extreme hatred towards his home country, Matthew Heimbach is a supporter of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. According to Heimbach, "North Korea is a nation that stands against imperialism and globalism around the world". He even posted a tweet commemorating North Korea's independence day on his now-suspended Twitter account praising its "Nationalist culture, Policies for racial purity, Opposes Globalism" with a message "Happy Independence Day North Korea".[10] [nknews.org]

          The community submit stories that they feel worthy of discussion. If we only want to accept a small subset of political stories then the Board will have to specify its requirements more precisely, and we must be very careful that we do not fall foul of unintended censorship by simply refusing to acknowledge stories that don't meet the Board's particular political view. Today's story is a case in point.

          Leading up to the election, we were posting an almost running commentary on both parties' activities - none of which I would consider as being 'of interest to us'. Everything that Trump or Clinton said was dissected in some detail. I complained then that I thought it was unnecessary but was overruled by the predominantly US team members. The result was that we created the Political nexus to move them off the front page, or at least make them easy to filter. I suspect that very few use that filter, and as an editor I cannot because I have to be aware of what is happening. It was also intended that a separate group would be doing the editing but that hasn't come to fruition because of the problems of attracting enough editors to meet that requirement.

          From today's stories using the old yardstick, I would also drop the 'Trump Firing Mueller' story too, but many would argue that story is worthy of discussion. We aim for a maximum of 1 politics story per day (average) and the Women's March story is the only one marked for that nexus today. In fact, it is the only political story in the last 3 days. The old yardstick is inadequate for judging which political stories are worthy of discussion. Almost all reporting on the build-up to the US elections was 'not of interest to us' but that is not what was accepted.

          We had a spate of police shooting African-Americans each of which was covered by one or more stories here. What made those stories reportable under the old yardstick? None of them were related to STEM even remotely.

          Story selection is not black and white. We have to judge what the community wants to discuss which we can best do at present by looking at the submissions.

                From a feeling of "ownership"

                Er, no, the community have elected the Board to run this site on the communty's behalf, and volunteers help the Board to keep the site running. Feel free to volunteer to help us in some respect or other - maybe even stand for office. We don't have a feeling of ownership but rather one of pride that we have kept the site going for 4 years now. But that has come only as a result of a lot of hard work.

                particular relevance to our community or of serious import.

                There are numerous other sites that cover what you appear to be suggesting - that anything is open for discussion. Feel free to go and join one of them - you can still have a home here at the same time. Since our creation we have concentrated on STEM and topics that are related to, or have a direct affect upon, STEM. True we try to be fairly broad in our interpretation of that remit, but politics was typically one of those topics from which many of us sought an escape. The regular media already cover it ad nauseum as well as many of the social media sites. If our particular niche is not to your own liking perhaps you are on the wrong site?

                they claim to not censor anyone right? Just shaping the narrative, totally different /s!

                We haven't, we don't, and we will not censor any of your comments unless legally obliged so to do. You own your views whether you put your name to them or hide behind anonymity. If you think that what we do is wrong, try discussing politics on a gardening or cooking site. Let's see how successful you are there. Have you tried buying auto parts in your local butchers? Would you go into an haberdashery shop looking to buy a ladder? It is not censorship, it is you choosing the wrong place to achieve what what you are trying to do. Furthermore, you CAN discuss any topic that you wish - PUBLISH IT ON YOUR JOURNAL PAGE! As I have stated elsewhere recently, if your need for anonymity outweighs your need to raise certain issues - then it is your problem. We have given all our community the means with which to discuss anything that they wish - if they don't use it, it does not become our fault.

            We had a spate of police shooting African-Americans each of which was covered by one or more stories here. What made those stories reportable under the old yardstick? None of them were related to STEM even remotely.

            Story selection is not black and white. We have to judge what the community wants

            Charlottesville is misunderstood. A few hateful idiots might want to claim credit for murder, and leftist media might be eager to spread that idea, but that doesn't make it true.

            What happened:

            An idiot, not part of either side of the conflict, decided to drive through the conflict area. Antifa chases him with an AR-15 style rifle. (proudly admitted by Antifa) The driver rightly panics. The idiot driver lightly hits an idiot protester in the way, causing minor injury. An extremely obese protester dies of a heart attack.

    When I showed my wife the 'my borders my choice' images she thought they were funny as hell. A woman has a border to keep out unwanted men and some men decide to cross it anyways, we call this rape. A country has a border to keep out unwanted men and we call this "looking for a better life". My wife is a bit conservative but she thinks it is pretty fair to call someone who violates your personal space against your best wishes and can hurt you in the process a rapist.

    Europeans invaded and conquered North America and one of the places founded was the US. The US decided to allow new people to come but they have to follow a process. Illegal immigrants are the same as the original pioneers were - they are invaders and conquerors. I like immigrants, the ones that come here legally, and am okay with increasing the numbers we take and making it easier to come in. But I think anyone willing to spit in our face by violating our laws should not be here.

          The regressive left is starting to show up on campus and it is getting ridiculous.

          Agree. Boomers and Generation X engaged in a brand of left wing politics driven by individualism and personal freedom. The modern left are collectivist, psychotic and authoritarian. We're a decade into this, with the last five years showing an intolerance that is moving older leftists to centrist positions and young right wingers further right. Illustrative that the centre left and centre right are now openly engaged in debate and uniting around shared values of personal liberty.

          There are members here who don't seem to understand the political flip or how bad it's gotten and that with today's youth the edgy, Pepe-posting shitlords equate to yesterdays rational leftists and stand for many of the same values. While the regressive far-left represent the same authoritarian, anti-liberal and puritanical attitudes as yesterdays Christian conservatives. Genuine progressives have to accept that and work with what we have.
