MGTOWers, a little late to the party, try their hand at a Downfall parody video

How to make a hilarious “Downfall” parody, in two steps.

Step One: Make one like this.

Step Two: Don’t make one like this.

Naturally, the second video here went over like gangbusters on the Men’s Rights subreddit.  One critic declared:

Another had this suggestion:

I dunno. “Your_Fun_Counselor” doesn’t really strike me as being very much fun at all.

They’re again failing to realize that feminists don’t care if they GTOW, and if guys like that want to makes themselves “unproductive” that’s their problem.

How many of these unproductive dudes have planned for their futures and their retirements before they go off not working or whatever they mean by that? I’m guessing most haven’t thought this through, seeing as they also hate welfare and any kind of safety net. They probably think that their mighty manliness will get them by.

Note for the painfully literal MRAs–I’m not saying get married, just wondering what the plan is.

Um..wait the founders of the MGTOW movement are married!?

Well, that explains so much about why MGTOWs won’t go away. Apparently they think that anyone within earshot is their marital partner and every feminist space must be the cramped apartment they want to start arguments in.

Also, I’ve seen funnier feminist parodies of the downfall.

@hellkell: Sssssshhh, baby. All you have to do is dare to imagine.

We menz will up stakes and move away, and we’ll be able to be dudebroly together, and everything will be pleasant, and there’ll be plenty of trains and heavy industry free of looters.

Are you imagining?

They’re complaining that women don’t earn enough money, but they also don’t believe in a wage gap. They’re also forgetting how much of women’s unpaid work helps prop up the system they are enjoying. Blue Milk from feministe said it best with

We would have better public policy and better rights for women if we were able to acknowledge more honestly that capitalism is not a marketplace, it is rather, a system that involves the intersection of the market with government, families and communities. We are talking about the greatest heist in capitalist history, because it is estimated that unpaid work in the USA amounts to 50 per cent of all hours of work performed. Imagine any other resource vanishing from the national spreadsheet like that. Capitalism, in its present form, could not survive without that unpaid support. It is not mothers who are draining the system, it is mothers and carers who are propping up the system.

Not that I would expect the MGTOW to understand or appreciate any of this, though.

Their whole whine about not wanting to pay taxes is cute. They think feminism’s bad? They’ve clearly never had the IRS up their asses.

Funny: Hitler wants to be friends with a cat.

Not Funny: Hitler repeating tired MGTOW talking points like anybody ever takes that shit seriously.

Seriously, the one where he calls the cat is hilarious.

And Blitzgal – I just had an idea!! You know how in FC they had that bar of soap that was so prominent in the ads? What if for here, it was (looking around to make sure no MRAs are listening…) SCENTED soap??

Yes, the downfall parodies were getting taken down, but they seem to have realized it’s a lost cause.

To be fair, I thought their Downfall video was hilarious. I just probably was laughing for a completely different reason.

“Not that I would expect the MGTOW to understand or appreciate any of this, though.”

Quoting feministe? That’s priceless. Where does all that magic money come from? Ahh, yes. It’s comes in the form of debt to the bankers. You do know the Rockefeller foundation is the major shareholder of the federal reserve. Don’t you? You do know Obamacare has been handed over to the federal reserve. Don’t you? There really isn’t much the Rothchild/Rockefeller corporation doesn’t run in your everyday life. they run your banks, medical, schools, government, AMA, ADA, FDA, FEMA, CFR, UN. FBI, CIA, Pretty much everything.

I’m sure they’ll be happy to pay for all the unpaid labor, as debt. 16 trillion not enough for ya? Why they’ll be happy to make it 32 trillion.

Tick, tick, tick goes the timebomb. Surely you didn’t think all those entitlements you voted for are free? Did you? Women aren’t all that bright. One day, when you wake up find everything is owed to the bankers, including yourself, don’t act surprised. My guess is, our forefathers were quite a bit smarter than the combined intellectual might of feministe. Times almost up kiddies.

Well that explains how and why Rosie the Riveter kicked Hitler’s ass, dunnit?
Somehow I do not think that was the point they were trying to make.

You know, I think they’re sort of oblivious to humor.

Let me ‘splain.

What makes the Downfall videos a bit amusing… well, the first one I saw, I would have called funny… what gives it bite is that it’s Hitler. Screaming. Only suddenly it’s about something totally innocuous. Maybe even cute.

There is dissonance. It is Hitler, after all.

When what you put into his mouth is just a pile of hateful bigoted shit that DOESN’T SOUND SO VERY DIFFERENT FROM STUFF HE SAID??

Well. Instead of irony, you just paint a giant freaking line between you and Hitler.

GIANT. FREAKING. LINE.

Wow. That second one read like a parody of what MRAs think of feminists. Right down to them really being nazis. It’s easy to forget that the person who made it actually believes every word.

FYI all, this is going to be a thing. Our little buddy brought it up in an earlier thread. I was withholding judgment, but I was afraid that it was going to turn out this way:

Howard, given that Tom thinks being funny = having other people make jokes for you, I’d say you’re probably bang on in guessing that most of them probably don’t really know what the fuck humor is.

Ahem.

I have discovered the secrets of this so-called humor that people use. As you watch me now, I will demonstrate it. Penny, you’re fat. You see, it’s funny because I’ve said something that clearly isn’t so! This is the part where you all laugh.

That NONONO cat video was awesome. I feel like that’s how actual relationships with cats go:

“Affection? Belly rubs? Fetch?”

“NONONONONO!”

Exactly. Unfortunately, we will continue to hear about this case just like we continue to hear about the Duke case every single time a rape story is reported in the news (that’s the way it is in the comment section of my local news, at any rate).

The police investigated and found out the woman was lying? But I thought they were the tools of feminism who auto-believed anything bad a woman says about a man!

What does men being, “unproductive” mean? I hope it means not producing offspring. Having a baby by one of these losers sounds like a nightmare. So if they choose not to procreate, I’m perfectly fine with it.
