MMA fighter and accused woman-beater War Machine gets an endorsement from a prominent Men’s Rights Activist

While over on Reddit the regulars are highly offended that anyone would point out the striking similarities between their ideas and the crackpot “men’s oppression is worse than slavery” rants of War Machine, the mixed martial arts fighter and accused woman-beater is getting support from one prominent Indian MRA, Rajesh Kumar, known on Twitter as @MensMrm:

Kumar’s Twitter account, with roughly 1600 followers including numerous well-known names in the MRM, looks to be the official account for the Men’s Rights Movement group on Facebook, a public group that boasts some 14,000 members, among them AVFM’s Paul Elam and British MRA/child prostitution apologist Tom Martin.

The link in his tweet is to a story that details the charges against War Machine, as well as his hyperbolic MRA-eqsue views, so there’s no question that Kumar knows just who he’s endorsing here.

    What are you talking about, David? War Machine has nothing in common with MRAs!

  2. I honestly think that they mean it that way. If you look at all of their ramblings, it really points to “rights are only applied to those who have esteem which must be earned”.

    Okeydoke…So in saying this:

    look at issues through the lens of compassion for men who deserve it, and respect for women who deserve it.

    One notes that only certain men are deemed worthy of compassion, and only certain women are deemed worthy of respect.

    Compassion:a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.

    So apparently he only wants to alleviate the suffering of SOME men?…Which seems rather hypocritical. Maybe they should call it the Some Men’s Rights Movement…

    And apparently, if Absinthe is right, they only respect women who’ve “earned” it.
    Presumably earning it involves submission.
    Fine if it’s consensual submission, but it ain’t my kink.

  3. Rather than treating everyone with ordinary civility regardless of whether they know them, they feel free to be rude and offensive to anyone and everyone unless and until they demonstrate their worthiness to be admitted to this rather small group. It’s actually a reversal or inversion of normal social interaction. Most adults are reasonably polite to others unless and until they demonstrate that they’re beyond the bounds of normal interaction. Even then, they’re more likely to avoid or minimise interaction with an undesirable individual or group rather than scale it up to verbal warfare.

    MM, awesome comment, and exactly! I’ve seen and met people like this, not just MRA’s, but people who just seem hostile to everybody but their own ingroup, and that’s a great way of explaining it. Thanks!

  4. War Machine said that “Men’s Oppression is worse than slavery”…… I said on twitter that Many men are realizing this……. Allegations against War Machine may or may not be correct, he may or may not be an ideal human being- nothing stops his right to think like a Man, express his view like a Man, realize slavery of a Man…… and I endorse his views on slavery of Men.

  5. Ooh, a necrotroll-spambot hybrid. How cutting edge.

  6. War Machine said that “Men’s Oppression is worse than slavery”…… I said on twitter that Many men are realizing this…….

    Well, good. That makes two complete idiots right there.

    Really? This was important enough to be pasted onto two old threads?
