New Hampshire pol who founded the Red Pill subreddit resigns in disgrace

Robert Fisher was apparently tired of answering questions

Hey, you remember that New Hampshire state representative who, it turns out, was also the founder of the exceedingly icky woman-hating Red Pill subreddit? Today, apparently tired of answering questions about what a misogynistic shit he is, he quit.

Here’s the Daily Beast, the publication that uncovered Fisher’s role in founding the subreddit in the first place, on this latest development:

Representative Robert Fisher, the Republican who was recently unmasked as the creator and chief moderator of The Red Pill, one of the internet’s most notorious forums for misogyny, resigned on Wednesday following a New Hampshire legislative committee’s passing of a recommendation that no action be taken against him and a call from Democrats that the Attorney General investigate him for lying under oath.

Fisher had previously refused to resign, resisting demands from within his own party, including New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, a Republican, who called Fisher’s online comments “horrendous and repulsive.”

Which is if anything an understatement.

Before you award the Republicans any awards for courage here, though, you should know that the reason that committee didn’t vote to discipline him is that all of the Republicans on it voted for no action; the Dems on the committee all supported some kind of sanctions.

It’s also worth noting that Fisher sees himself as the victim here. According to the Concord Monitor,

Fisher explained his resignation Wednesday afternoon, without apology.

“Unfortunately, the falsehoods, lies and comments of an overzealous blogger and some of my colleagues have created a situation where I must genuinely consider the safety and well-being of my girlfriend, my family, and myself,” he said in an email. “It is with a heavy heart that I will be unable to complete my term.”

Poor baby. Apparently being a TRUE ALPHA DOG RED PILLER is tough, at least once the world finds out that you’re a TRUE ALPHA DOG RED PILLER.

Lanariel’s one of those people like Penny Psmith or Claire, who I always assume is reading even though they never post. It gives me a warm feeling knowing that they’re around.

He resigned because intolerant nutjobs were threatening him, his gf, and his family.

I am happy for that.

The main reason I just lurk is that I usually get to the threads late and I am a slow writer sof almost everything seems to have been said.

That and social anxiety.

No, you’re mixing it up with what he and his followers encourage each other to do to women all the time for daring to stand up to bullies like them.

You also haven’t cited your claims. No, his self pitying own statement doesn’t count

Try harder, nitwit.

A guy like that has a girlfriend? Does it stay in the basement until time to put the lotion on its skin?

Blecch.
