Red Pillers blame “feminist floozies” for Muslim “invasion,” having sex with other guys

Ingrid Carlqvist: Not reactionary enought for Red Pillers, because woman
Ingrid Carlqvist: Not reactionary enought for Red Pillers, because woman

A couple of days ago, our old friend Stefan Molyneux– the garrulous, absurdly misogynistic YouTube philosopher king — chatted for an hour with Ingrid Carlqvist, a Swedish, er, journalist who has found many fans in the alt-right for her hateful attacks on Muslim refugees.

But it turns out that the reactionary Carlqvist — the author of such thoughtful works of journalism as “Sweden: Death by Immigration” and “Sweden: It Is Considered Racism Only If the Victims Are Not White” — isn’t reactionary enough for the fellas in the Red Pill subreddit.

Why? Because they’ve convinced themselves that the fervid anti-feminist Carlqvist is actually a feminist, or at least so tainted by the feminist beliefs they assume she held in the past that no amount of yelling about feminists can save her.

Also, they’re mad that as a teenager in the 1970s she went home with guys and had sex with them. Even worse, she sometimes went home with guys and then … refused to have sex with them!

The gracious gentleman who calls himself worldnewsrager set out the case against Carlqvist in an interminably long posting to The Red Pill subreddit, largely based on a comment she made some 45 minutes into her interview with Molyneux.

As the two discussed what could be done to “save” Sweden from the eeeeevil Muslim invasion, Molyneux evidently suggested that a lot of men “have been so beaten upon by feminism for so long, I think, at this point, many view it almost like saving their enemies from the consequences of their enemies’ own misconceptions and hostilities.”

Worldnewsrager noted that this was a sentiment he agreed with, adding that he “wouldn’t piss on a SJW to put them out.”

But Carlqvist disagreed. “Her response to Stefan’s argument was staggering,” worldnewsrager reports. She urged the men of Europe — or at least the non-Muslim ones — to “save Europe.”

“And when you do,” she said,

you will also crush feminism! And the women, they will be soooooooo sooooo thankful and grateful for saving europe. for saving their opportunities of being women, and being equal, but not being feminists. And they won’t be feminists anymore. … You gotta save Europe for us, and leave the feminists to me.. I will deal with them.

It was at this point, evidently, that the steam began to erupt from worldnewsrager’s ears.

I had to stop the tape there. I mean WHAT!? …  This f**king lifelong feminist has come to realize how deeply and how irrevocably the philosophy she believed in and perpetuated has F**KED UP an entire continent, and the only thing this “strong, independent don’t need no man, free-lover” does is DEMAND men fix it. DEMANDS.

“Free-lover?” you ask. Earlier in the interview, you see, Carlqvist shared

stories from the mid-70’s of being a young free-lover and stringing various dudes along, and then denying them sex at the last minute and them ‘being okay with it.’ She actually referred to that ‘era’ as ‘really, the golden age.’ The golden age of Cultural-Marxism I’m sure. So, as far as i can tell, she was fully on-board with the whole “New Society” ideology until only the last few years. 

And now she wants men to clean up the mess she made by HAVING (or not having) SEX WITH SOME DUDES IN THE 1970s?

Now, this likely childless, husbandless, waste of good white skin

Yes, he really did just call her a “waste of good white skin.”

Now, this likely childless, husbandless, waste of good white skin actually, like tries to shame men into what? Getting themselves killed doing what can only be assumed to be deporting the suspected million muslim immigrants. or overthrowing the government. And for what? So she is protected from the consequences of her life-choices, that she only now, once it’s hitting her in the face, realizes might have been in err?

So much for equality, strength and independence, right? When the metal meets the meat, these Western ‘feminists’ abandon their principles as fast as they adopted them. And demand that another generation of men throw themselves in the grinder on their behalf.

Naturally, the men of the Red Pill subreddit responded to worldnewsrager’s lovely post by giving it many hundreds of upvotes. And in the comments they set forth their own, equally thoughtful, analyses of the Swedish Problem, and how terrible women like Carlqvist caused it with their free-loving feminism.

The always sensible GayLubeOil won himself a few upvotes for this small outpouring of wisdom, which came complete with a lovely racist metaphor for rape:

I feel like women have an almost Biological need to cause problems for men. The more problems they cause the more opportunities they have for assessing men’s problem solving skills. …

The problem is that feminism has made women not worth the prize. So now women can deal with the consequences of their actions up to and including getting culturally enriched by Mohammed and friends on the streets of Stockholm.

RojoEscarlata dropped some bio-truths:

just women for you, you can’t blame them for doing exactly what we expect them to do. Running to men when sh*t hits the fan is literally one of their evolutionary instinctive impulses. 

And followed the bio-truths with some history truths:

Feminism wasn’t created by women, it’s just one of the ugly faces of the multicultural disease that is Marxism, women just happen to be always the ones to fall hardest for the equality meme, like those bonobos communist f**kers. 

Wait, what? How do communist bonobos fit into all this? Alas, he offers no explanation, and ends with:

TL;DR: women vote was a mistake

snobocracy won himself dozens of upvotes with this medical metaphor:

Feminism is literally AIDS.

These Muslims aren’t a problem to deal with. They’re superstitious, uneducated, illiterate, dependant on welfare and generally plain dumb to boot.

But our civilizational immune system, which would usually round up these criminal immigrants, has been stunted by feminists who have convinced the world that any form of masculine energy and will to protect your family and nation is evil.

aiguo888 pointed the finger of blame at a rather familiar scapegoat:

Jews are behind this and this is their desired effect. They want to destroy the caucasian race once and for all, which is what inevitably will happen when local men aren’t having kids anymore and aren’t willing to fight for their countries.

Yep, that’s right: Jews did Muslims! 

FLFTW16 managed to work the c-word into his analysis. No, not that c-word. The other one. The one that starts with “c” and ends with “uck.”

Sweden no longer belongs to the men, so it’s not even their country to save. They have been dispossessed of their ancestral lands. 

At this point the comment veers off into an Ayn Randian paean to property rights, before ending with this:

At this point I feel that Sweden ought to be forced to continue their program until they are utterly destroyed. The example of their hubris must serve as a reminder to uncucked European peoples to take better care what they advocate.

trudatness set forth a conspiracy theory so immense that, well, ok, I didn’t read the whole thing. With my glazed-over eyes, though, I did manage to spot references to globalists, well-funded feminists, academic postmodernism, and Mayer Amschel Rothschild.

And this bit, about Carlqvist:

So of course all this sh*t is miles over this feminist c**t’s head. All she cares about is being able to dress like a floozy and lead betas orbiters on for her own purposes. Only when that reality gets disrupted – her lizard brain now says FEMINISM BAD. She’s able to piece together that feminism is bringing Islamic fundamentalism to Europe and that is counter to her personal whims. She doesn’t have clue one on how to solve it … Her go to method of whining and getting thirsty SJW idiots to carry her water isn’t working. … Now she’s turning to Red Pilled men to do it. Same method, different target.

For our interests, we don’t really care if she and other women of her ilk dress like a floozies and play head games with dudes. We can handle that sh*t. Its the shattering of western society that has most of us concerned.

Well, all righty then.

Or should it be “alt-righty then?”

iLLprincipLeS was a bit more concise.

His comment was also the worst thing I’ve read on the Internet for some time, and I devote a good portion of my life to reading terrible things on the Internet. You may just want to skip it.

Ha, save yourself you f**king strong independent female!

I will piss in your mouth when you ask for some water while you are lying on the ground in the blood dripping from your own p***y that was just raped by the ones you brought in with your Refugees Welcome signs.

Perhaps even more astounding than the comment itself is this realization: iLLprincipLeS sees himself as one of the civilized ones.

When these guys go on about saving “civilization” from the “barbarians,” this is what they think is worthy of saving.

Twitter just suggested that Didi and Carisma should follow Donald Trump there.

Only if the plan is to leave mysterious kittypoop piles on his desk.

(This is very puzzling, because I’ve made zero political tweets with DidiCarisma account, and I follow exactly zero people with it, since cats aren’t followers. Cats always go their own way.)

It’s truly disturbing how the alt right has become the mainstream nowadays. That hashtag # fash the nation I think was a turningpoint. These people, if you can even call them that, don’t even hide their fascism and nazism any more. They used to say, oh we aren’t nazis, but now they’re proud. In England we are only a couple of steps behind the USA. The downfall of society is nothing to do with the Joooze, the Cultural Marxists, Communist Bonobos or Feminists, it’s them. The last generation made steps forward for Women’s Lib and Civil Rights, now the Trumpites and others like them want to take us back in time just to preserve their priviledge. I don’t like the look of what’s coming.

I get ads based on what I recently browsed at Amazon. For the last several weeks the entire internet has been trying to get me to buy baseball batting helmets.

@IP – There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on the unemployed and sick. The internet is so full of scams. I feel like even with legit jobs, half the time you fill out the form and submit your resume, and it just goes into a black hole somewhere (aka the Island of Misfit Keywords). I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a job that way, actually. I hope you find something soon that fits your interests and talents. How’s your volunteer work going? Have you had any further issues with new people interrupting and not paying attention during training?

Also, Skype is terrible for that. Google has access to anything you type into Skype, likely because they’re paying Microsoft for the access. Type the name of a product and you’ll start getting ads for it almost immediately; talk about needing new glasses and you’ll start getting eyewear ads. I get heaps of data processing service ads because of it.

Anything in your bookmarks, too. I get fitness machines ’cause I have some sites bookmarked for a rowing machine I’d like to buy when I have the money.

It’s sort of scary how deep the data mining ecosystem has gotten over the past five years. Windows 10 especially; Cortana isn’t about helping you do stuff. Cortana is about fattening your profile so as to better feed you ads. It’s sort of inescapable, too – you can’t really use the internet without using search engines. Adblocker halts the issue of seeing the ads, but they’re still gathering the data on you.

It’s a puzzle I am sort of dealing with on the side at work – how to improve internet privacy without losing the benefits of browsing profiles (there are many, and they greatly improve your experience online). It’s a sticky pickle.

Do people need help with blocking Skype ads?

I can help with that. This is for Windows, those who use Mac need to find a different way and Linux users can just tuck the site mentioned to hosts.deny file.

Open Control Panel -> Internet Options, Security, Restricted, Sites.

Add “apps.skype.com”.

Click OK/accept/close until you’re back at your desktop.

Restart Skype.

I’ve used this ever since I found it out, and JOY, no more ads.

Well, that’s how fascist dictatorships usually start. One person on YouTube wrote that college campuses will start fascist dictatorships. I’m like, “Um… no.” because Mr. YouTuber clearly doesn’t know history. Fascism generally starts with demagogues taking advantage of people’s fear and ignorance. And generally fascism is very anti-intellectual, emphasizing the virtues of folk traditions. As history shows, it is not routine for professors and students to be exiled, imprisoned, or even executed.

Honestly, the whole conspiracy of cultural Marxism and Jews in academia is a form of anti-intellectualism. And alt right people generally disdain things like books, critiques, and critical thinking. Most of their information is handed to them hand-to-mouth from a small niche of Internet sites, usually by people trusted to filter information for them. They love to preach rationality, art, and higher culture, but only so they can associate themselves with the “superior” white race and justify their bigotry, not because they are actually rational, creative, or able to understand higher culture.

Just imagine how miserable these people must be to focus so much of their limited time on this earth on these outrageous theories. Pitiful.

Yeah, I’ve never gotten a decent job by replying to an actual ad. The only thing I got that way was work as a street recruiter for Amnesty International. All jobs I’ve had that actually paid decent money and lasted for longer than a few works I got through randomly calling or emailing some place where I feel like I could work. I’m doing the same right now, emailing schools all over the city to see if they need more teachers. I know they do, but I doubt their finances would allow them to hire.

I did manage to find one woman who’s willing to pay for private lessons, so that’s great. But it’s nowhere near enough money, of course.

The volunteer work is going great! Annoying people are annoying, but that’s just life I guess. Just the other day I overheard one of our volunteers explaining to a student that she “should never use computers because they’re bad for your soul”. What the hell do you even say to that? But in general it’s going well and it’s fun.

Originally it was used by leftist intellectuals to describe other leftist intellectuals they thought regressed from radical politics. Rather than being “true” Marxists who analyzed economics and pushed for a revolution they were “cultural” Marxists who just analyzed culture all day. To a “true” Marxist, cultural things (like all the racist and sexist bullshit out there) are manifestations of deeper (economic) realities.

But, yeah, the right wing basically cooped the term since the 90s and started ranting about Jews (as usual).

re: “Cultural Marxism”, Ouraboros is right on the money. It’s a meaningless word, right up there with “Regressive left” and “cuck”. It means “People I don’t like.” Usually having to do with forced relocation to hobbit homes and cultural genocide and miscegenation and whatever-the-hell-else.

They’re not necessarily actual fascists. IMO most just seem to be prejudiced or have regressive ideas and are borrowing fascist talking points to justify them. They don’t even know the talking points they borrow are fascist in origin.

There are private search engines, like DuckDuckGo and Ixquick, that don’t record your IP address and browser history, and keep you out of filter bubbles. Ixquick gives you the option of viewing sites through a proxy, to further disguise yourself from advertisers. But then you lose the benefits of cookies and profiles, so…I don’t know, maybe the answer is to use different browsers depending on whether you’re shopping or surfing?

@IP Agreed, personal contact is a good way to get your name out there. It’s certainly more memorable than replying anonymously to an ad. The worst job I ever had (the infamous Mouse Poop Fortune Cookie boss) was the result of a newspaper ad. 😛 Never again.

Another insidious thing about unemployment is that it puts you out of touch with the network in your industry. Having a job is often what leads to other jobs. I got my current job when my former manager left, went to a different company, and brought me in. In our small city, there are maybe 1-2 dozen companies that employ most of the people in my field. Over the years as former co-workers shuffle around and move from job to job, I’ve built up contacts at each place, but that’s harder to do when you’ve been out of the workforce.

Another helpful resource is recruiters. They know the ins and outs of the company culture for the clients they contract with, who’s hiring, and what skills are in demand. A lot of times they can get you a temp-to-hire position at a place you’re interested in. Is there a placement service or something similar for educators in your area?

Best of luck in your search! Hope something opens up for you soon.

Wait, what? How do communist bonobos fit into all this?

I think there’s a missing comma.

Read it this way:

“Women just happen to be always the ones to fall hardest for the equality meme, like those bonobos, (mutter) communist fuckers.”

In this parse, “communist fuckers” can be read as an aside, and a succinct description of bonobo social structures.

So, how many of these dudes are Swedish? My guess would be “few to none.” Why do people always imagine that it’s okay to make political decisions for units outside their own? My parents do this all the fucking time with California, getting angry as hell because CA is making decisions that the ‘rents don’t like. I’m always having to remind them that they don’t live in California and what CA does has no impact on them. Which is exactly why they have, and should have, no say whatsoever in what CA does.

You see this a lot in conservative circles. Another example is the way all the supposedly “states’ rights” conservatives freaked when some states started legalizing gay marriage and marijuana.

There is a reason for it, of course. Specifically, on some level they actually know their prejudices cannot withstand contact with reality. So if they’ve been saying that gay marriage will be the end of the family, they cannot abide by a state that chooses to legalize gay marriage, because they know that no such destruction of Mom-Dad-Little Bobbie and Susie is going to occur.

Coming in late and now OT, but the one weird trick ads take you to a long (hour-ish) unskippable video that is kind of boring and pointless, with the promise that you’ll see the one weird trick if you watch the whole thing. Then, if you do, yes you’ll be asked for your credit card number to order the one weird trick.

It’s a rube filter. It’s designed to weed out people who are savvy to this stuff and let through only the gullible and inexperienced. By doing so, it reduces the chances that the person will kick up a stink when they realize they’ve bought something worthless and demand their money back.

The misspellings and bad grammar in the Nigerian Prince scam emails serve the same purpose. They aren’t interested in fooling you if you are difficult to fool, but they are very interested in making you ashamed to admit to the authorities that you fell for something so obvious.

I read dlisted, so I think that’s a big part of why I get that stuff. I don’t generally have an interest in celebrity gossip, but I find dlisted funny and more of a mocking pop culture site than a celebrity news site, but obviously ad algorithms aren’t going to be able to make that distinction.

I suspect those ads actually tend to target anyone perceived as female and my dlisted reading isn’t that crucial of a factor though.

Then there’s the celebrity gossip/one weird trick ads that are listed in the psuedo-“related articles” section of the site, I think those ones are fairly static because I’ve gotten the same ones on multiple computers.

I wonder if all the links lead to the same video showing one weird cinnamon trick for diabetes, mortgage refinancing, and cleaning bathroom tile. That would be much more cost effective.

I just get completely random, inoffensive ads about things which I have no interest in, or blank yellow boxes. I also have yet to see anything which is blatantly targeted at men or women in particular.
