Evil bankers are using sexy ladies to lure men into protesting, Sandman the MGTOW alleges in perplexing rant

Women protesters: Puppets of the evil bankers?

By David Futrelle

Sandman, the YouTube blabber with the bizarro-world-radio-voice, is one of the most influential figures in the Men Going Their Own Way movement. He pops out new videos on a daily basis, with most of them garnering ten to twenty thousands views; his most popular video has gotten nearly a million.

I would write about him more often but his videos are invariably incoherent messes that hurt my brain whenever I try to make sense of them.

But one of his recent videos nonetheless got my attention and I will do my best to try to translate into something that resembles normal human discourse. In the video, Sandman accuses women of taking part in the recent protests against police brutality because they want attention from men. And he then accuses men of joining the protests just to be around these women.

“I thought that women would be content to stay home during the lockdowns and take their medications like good little attention starved drug addicts,” he declares.

But apparently it didn’t happen that way. Apparently, they need to go out and use whatever excuse they can for attention. Of course, the simps also gonna go in the streets looking for their attention.

Indeed, Sandman declares, the protests probably would have fizzled out had these “attention-starved” women not decided to take to the streets. But he now believes that there was little chance of that.

Women go nuts without attention. And George Floyd has given them plausible deniability to go into the streets and tear up the pavement with their hooves.

Yes, he said “hooves.” I listened to that like five times to be sure.

Apparently nothing — not even the fear of coronavirus — will stop women across the world from “virtue signalling … with their cockatoo colored hair, looking to get some man’s cock hard.”

And nothing seems to make Sandman madder than “virtue signaling” women with “cockatoo colored hair.”

They want to be seen as virtuous without actually having any virtue.

I guess they figure they can fake it till they make it when it comes to being a good person. Just like everything else in their lives, if they’re bad inside and pretend to be good long enough, then they think that magically they’ll will become like pure virgins again with an intact hymen waiting and waiting for that diamond.

So the protests and riots and whatnot are all the fault of these evil women, right?

Well, yes, except that Sandman also seems to think that the protests are being guided by invisible masters. At one point he wonders if there’s some sort of “secret cabal of racists … doing this intentionally to damage or destroy black communities all under the name of fighting racism.”

And then there are the bankers.

I’ve heard all kinds of rumblings and rumors that Trump wants to take the US dollar onto the gold standard. And I don’t know if that’s true or not, but that would certainly piss off a lot of bankers. It’s almost as if the powers that be in the blue states wanted the Corona and Mexican beer flu to continue. It’s almost as if they’re using women as useful idiots to get the men on the streets because women can’t help but go out there and chase attention.

So, insofar as I can figure out the supposed logic of this alleged conspiracy, he thinks that the bankers want to keep the coronavirus pandemic deaths coming because somehow this will stop Trump from putting us on the gold standard again. So the bankers turn to the women who would be going out to protest anyway because they want the attention, and because they think if they virtue signal hard enough they’ll turn back into virgins.

I scanned the transcript of this video several times trying to figure out if Sandman ever attempts to reconcile these seemingly contradictory elements. Nope!

But one thing is clear: the spike in coronavirus cases that he predicted in this video has not actually come to pass.. Why? Because the protesters wore masks, and made efforts to spread themselves out.

Weirdly, for all of Sandman’s moralistic fumfering about the dangers of Coronavirus, he confesses in the video that he’s stopped wearing his mask when he goes out. Clearly he cares less about the spread of the disease than the “thots” he devoted this video to attacking.

Maybe he’s the one unwittingly working for the bankers, huh?

IIRC this is also the man who thinks women’s butts cause war and warned of estrogen powered killer robots.

I think we all know what he means by “bankers”…antisemitism doesn’t change much.

Sounds like a pretty good description of conservatives.

I’ve heard all kinds of rumblings and rumors that Trump wants to take the US dollar onto the gold standard.

Of course, the very reliable Journal of Rumblings and Rumors.
Taking the dollar to the gold standard is not feasible because all the gold in the world is worth far less than all the money currently in circulation. Libertarians harp about it, but it isn’t happening.

Because the protesters wore masks, and made efforts to spread themselves out.

Because protestors do a better job distributing masks than the government.

And somehow, this is the first I’ve ever heard of him. Unless David’s mentioned him before and he got lost in the “Oh, one of those.” I can’t really keep most of these guys straight*.

Anyhow,

Allow me to do it for you. Without looking at the transcript, or even really reading most of the quotes here, but based on his mention of bankers, I believe I can provide the missing link that will make sense of this all.

Yes, putting the dollar back on the gold standard would really piss off bankers. Also accountants, economists, and people who like getting paid in usable money. Not to mention pretty much every other national government on the planet.

Wow, that is one hell of a cornucopia of conspirationist bullshit. And I know bullshit, I hang out here to laugh at it after all (*insert smug asshole grin here*). And of course the projection as always is strong with this one. “Those behind the anti-racist demonstrations are the real racists!” and “tHeY’re ViRtUe SiGnAlLiNg BuT dOn’T hAvE vIrTuE” indeed.

Most of the current crop of racists couldn’t pull off a false flag if it bit them in the ass (case in point the protests that went violent; for the vast majority IIRC it was quite obviously due to 1- chucklefucks who used mostly peaceful protests as a way to try looting and rioting with impunity, like the Paul brothers, 2- right-wing agents provocateurs like boogaloo boys who wanted the situation to degenerate for their own nefarious reasons, 3- ham-fisted police departments (fuck you and your bad apples, when 57 cops quit due to butthurt over 2 getting reprimanded for shoving an old man to the ground it’s a whole bushel) chomping at the bit to bust some heads to retain their precious murder privilege, or 4- mix and match any of the above). Reichstag fire this ain’t.

And it always amuses me how quick people who tend to be very enthusiastic about capitalism accuse bankers of all that is wrong in the world, before reminding myself that they really mean (((bankers))) (yay easy-to-spot racist dogwhistles). As if non-Jews in high finance positions would act all that differently.

Wait, if women are only taking part in the protests to attract men, and men are only taking part in the protests to attack women, then where do these chucklefucks think the idea to protest in the first place came from?

Not that any of this is supposed to make any sense, but I justcan’t understand this:

I thought that women would be content to stay home during the lockdowns and take their medications like good little attention starved drug addicts

If he thinks women want attention that badly, why would he have assumed they’d be content during the lockdown in the first place? Or is “medication” here supposed to mean Instagram likes or something like that? It sounds like he was going for “I thought even X could do something as simple as Y correctly…” and just… didn’t.

Also, did he mean to say that women are addicted to attention and got mixed up and called them drug addicts while doing that? Or do drug addicts usually want a lot of attention?

I think he’s playing to the manosphere belief that all women are on antidepressants. This seems to be a common belief with a few variations as to why the women are on antidepressants. Obviously many women are on antidepressants and there is no shame in it, but the manosphere finds this as another thing to hate women over.

@Masse_Mysteria:

Not an expert, and frankly I’m not sure if it’s healthy for me (or anyone) to delve into such a dank, benighted mind, but here’s my hypothesis:

To him, attention-seeking seems to be an addiction about the same way drug addiction is (in the context this particular video anyway; wouldn’t be surprised if he communicated vastly different, incompatible opinions elsewhere). Ergo, consuming drugs is the same as getting attention (because endorphins because biotroofs). So, while he isn’t being very clear (duh), he likely IMO means that while confined women got their endorphin fix (which of course they all have, biotroof remember?) by either posting on social media (probably those with a video component like Tik Tok, Instagram, etc.), or by actually consuming drugs. He probably meant both.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go scrub my brain with a toothbrush to remove the grime from going into that guy’s putative mind.

*As Naglfar put it, by drugs I also mean prescription ones like antidepressants; the blithering dingus of the day probably scarcely distinguishes between crystal meth and zoloft.

And I remember comments that things like SSRIs have no real ‘street value’… because they don’t actually make you feel any better, they just stop you from feeling ever worse, and so they have no significant effect on anybody who isn’t in the depths of depression.

(My understanding is they also have no real effect on a number of people who do suffer from depression, as well, because depression is not really a single thing but a potential result of a lot of other things. Biology is complicated, and brain chemistry some of the most complicated, most individual, and least understood.)

I was treated for depression for a long time and it didn’t work very well because it turned out that I had bipolar disorder instead. I think a lot of people for whom depression meds don’t work very well may have a similarly-presenting alternative disorder that isn’t properly diagnosed. In my case, it was 8 years of fruitlessly searching for a workable medication combo before the truth came out.

Also, it’s good to remember that almost all drugs can fail to help with a disease they are supposed to work on. It’s not like it’s a specificity of brain chemistry. Misdiagnostic is a big reason for that as pointed by PoM, but there’s also the fact it’s very rarely a single drug that do the trick, but a combination of the natural healing, drugs, other treatments, and removing of the cause of the problem if appliable.

Most infuriatingly, there’s very little acknowledgment that helping people out of poverty can also help them with their health problems, be them mental or physical. Instead, and especially for mental problems, the society actually expect them to get out of their problems before they get a shot at getting out of poverty. While poverty is often either a direct cause or at least an aggravating factor.

As for addiction, I would remind you can get addicted to almost anything, no matter how abstract or non evidently addictive it seem. That being said, projection bias look like in full swing to me : while probably not addicted in the medical sense, he clearly enjoy attention, so he expect any other human to enjoy attention a whole lot.

On another topic, I am alway fascinated by thoses purposed solution to every ill of the society, like the return to gold standard, the brexit, and other, grizzlier crank ideas. In particular how they seem to alway follow the template of brutaling reverting to a very old practice, being at the same time an appeal to the past *and* an appeal to revolution.

Do we remember all the sex we now didn’t have, or do we have to go through the awkward fumbly phase again? We don’t have children, but if we did, would it make them disappear?

I’ve now checked and EVERY grocery chain with a location in my town refuses to offer delivery to my postal code. Half of them refer me to Instacart … you know, the app that won’t even install correctly?

It is sure looking like there is a SYSTEMATIC thing here to force me to travel huge distances on foot carrying heavy loads one or more times a week, at this point.

The question is, why would all of these nominally-independent businesses be colluding not to fix prices, or to do any similar thing that might benefit their bottom lines, but to starve one of their own customers? If I end up unable to keep this up and drop dead one day they don’t get any business from me anymore. How does that make their CEOs richer? And if it doesn’t, WHY then are they colluding to ensure that outcome? And if they are not colluding, then explain the systematic, coordinated nature of all of these obstacles! If it was just a random thing surely at least one of them would be offering delivery? But no, not a single one is. That’s bad luck cubed. To the fourth when you add in that I’ve been bitten by an apparently rare bug in the Instacart app as well. It sure looks less like random chance than like there is a systematic effort across at least four large organizations to prevent anyone in my area from being able to have groceries delivered. But what is the motive?

And … how do I lodge an antitrust complaint? (Without a lot of traveling, snail-mail, or paying fees, of course.) Colluding to withhold a service from an area is surely just as illegal as more “classic” anticompetitive forms of collusion like price-fixing.

Probably because grocery stores offering their own delivery service is rather rare, so most of them outsource and instacart is the big app? And I’m guessing your postal code is far enough out that it’s not realistic to expect delivery.

I live in the middle of farmland, and there’s only one store in a 2-mile radius and they don’t deliver. Does that mean there’s a conspiracy against me? Nope, I just live where it’s remote enough to not get a lot of delivery services.

Seriously, get help. Your pattern of thinking is not just wrong, it’s harming you. We can’t help you with that. You need a professional.

The stores in questions all have locations within a few minutes’ drive of my home. There is nothing at all unrealistic about expecting delivery. If they have an employee on site and a car they have everything they need to include delivery in their services. Yeesh. It’s not like I’m expecting them to deliver to some farm in back-country half an hour+ from their nearest store location or something.

And I don’t like the suggestion that the only way to get delivery is to move to where rents are hundreds of dollars higher (i.e., unaffordable).

As for my “pattern of thinking”, if there is some different “pattern of thinking” I could have instead that would result in having food in my pantry with a bit less physical exertion on my part, I’m all ears, but I frankly don’t see that happening outside of some universe where wiggling a stick around and waying “wingardium leviosa!” actually does something. This isn’t a problem I can just think out of existence, like some math exercise.

You clearly need it. And despite how terrible DoFo is, he still hasn’t managed to get rid of everything that could be useful.

Call ConnexOntario at 1-866-531-2600. They’re available from 8:30 to 4:30. (It is not a conspiracy against you if those hours don’t suit you.) Or use their webchat — it’s available 24/7. https://www.connexontario.ca/Home/Chat

Above all, CALL 211. Explain your situation. They’ll be able to point you to solutions. It’s what they’re there for.

Please. As many people have said, no one here is trained to help you. These people are. But we can’t help you if you won’t try to help yourself.

Surely, calling these services, or going to their webchat, can’t be any more difficult than writing long rants about how the world is out to get you on a blog where everyone wants the best for you but can’t take these steps for you. (Source: I’ve had problems too. I still had to be the one to make the phone call, however hard it was.)

The world is not conspiring against you. There are just systems in place that make it harder for marginalized (disabled, poor, racialized, etc) folks to get by. It’s not fair, in fact it’s complete shit, but it doesn’t only affect you.

The world doesn’t care about you. It doesn’t care to specifically target you, and it doesn’t care about giving you a break and magically making other people solve all your problems for you. An ultimatum is not going to change the mind of your imaginary tormentors, because you don’t have tormentors. If you want help, you need to reach out.

I especially don’t know what you think you may accomplish by making a comment on a blog where people are actively unable to help you in the way you demand. You keep denying that you need any help with your mental state, because that won’t magically add food to your pantry. Yet you keep posting here, even though that’s also never going to magically produce food, either. Why do you think it’s a more productive use of your time, yelling at us about how you’re the most targeted and tormented person ever, than it is to talk to a crisis line? Are you just posting here to fish for suggestions you can shit on to make yourself feel better?

Well, fine, I’ll bite. Here, how about these recommendations?

Did you try using the browser version of Instacart? Did you try putting in a nearby postal code?

Have you checked to see if there’s a meals on wheels or other similar charity service in your area that might be able to help you, even if only in the interim?

In the wake of COVID, I’ve heard of there being volunteer/charity services established to help deliver groceries (mainly to the elderly and high-risk), separately from services like Instacart. If there’s one in your area, and if you contact them respectfully, you may be able to get them to help you out by picking up and delivering a grocery order for you, if Instacart won’t do it. Do you have nearby neighbors? Can you ask them if they’ve made use of any delivery services?

Thanks for this suggestion, but unfortunately, either there isn’t one in my area, or they have done nothing to advertise themselves, and as a result I have no point of contact with them.

Of course not. Finding one in Timbuktu or Shanghai or La Paz or Lagos won’t do me much good here in Podunk, Ontario. And of course I’ve never found any local thing by including the town’s name in searches. Nothing that’s strictly local to my area seems to have ever bothered having any kind of web presence, except for the local newspaper and a bare-bones D-for-effort city government webshite that’s basically a thin index on top of a pile of clunky PDF files. (As I discovered a year ago when researching noise bylaws to find out what I could do about incessant sleep-preventing rackets … remember how that was the “special challenge” I was subjected to before it changed to getting heartburn medication, which was the one before it changed to transporting food home?)

@Surplus,

In addition to what others have suggested, I suggest looking at services like Doordash and (possibly) UberEats. Doordash I know had a grocery delivery service alongside their meal delivery service; in theory they should be able to deliver to your door as you need it.

As for your transportation woes, is there a reason you can’t invest in a bike or small motor scooter to help you get around town on? Bicycles can be equipped with baskets to carry things in, or if it’s been too long since you last rode one, adult tricycles with baskets in back are a thing too. And from what I can tell via observation, scooters only take a few gallons/liters of gas to run, so in theory it shouldn’t cost too much to operate one in a regular basis.

Does your local bus service have special buses for the disabled to use (basically they arrive at your front door to take you places, unlike how the regular buses operate). Does MediCab (a cab service that runs people to their doctor’s offices and pharmacies) or similar run in your city? These can be options for you to look into, I think. Save a bit of wear and tear on your legs once in a while, at least.

I don’t insist on it. The giant property-holding companies that collude and price-fix the rents in this country insist on it.

Besides, it’s not really the ass end of nowhere. It’s a town of 20,000 people fer chrissake, not some one-exit village of 300 let alone an isolated farmstead. :/

@Surplus,

In addition to what others have suggested, I suggest looking at services like Doordash and (possibly) UberEats. Doordash I know had a grocery delivery service alongside their meal delivery service; in theory they should be able to deliver to your door as you need it.

As for your transportation woes, is there a reason you can’t invest in a bike or small motor scooter to help you get around town on? Bicycles can be equipped with baskets to carry things in, or if it’s been too long since you last rode one, adult tricycles with baskets in back are a thing too. And from what I can tell via observation, scooters only take a few gallons/liters of gas to run, so in theory it shouldn’t cost too much to operate one in a regular basis.

Does your local bus service have special buses for the disabled to use (basically they arrive at your front door to take you places, unlike how the regular buses operate). Does MediCab (a cab service that runs people to their doctor’s offices and pharmacies) or similar run in your city? These can be options for you to look into, I think. Save a bit of wear and tear on your legs once in a while, at least.

(Apologies if this posts twice; the first copy went off the well-beaten Internet path and hasn’t found its way back here as of this posting. :/ )

So women are incapable of wanting change towards a corrupt justice system, are all drugvaddicts that want marriage and cant feel empathy. Yeah sounds about right for mgtow like Sandman. He once made a weird emotional statement about building a rocket and launching into space where he would explore the cosmos meanwhile women are left on earth. Like it was his fantasy to leave, but also to make women want him back, like every mgtow wants. It was so bizarre…..

epitome of incomprehensibility

@Surplus – I was just wondering, did something work, re delivering groceries? (I know it’s more common for you to comment when something goes wrong rather than when it goes better, and that makes sense, but it’d be a relief hearing that something worked at least sort of.)

Just like everything else in their lives, if they’re bad inside and pretend to be good long enough, then they think that magically they’ll will become like pure virgins again with an intact hymen waiting and waiting for that diamond.

This good = virgin equation is just silly. It’s an old trope, though – women’s goodness or badness being tied to their sexuality, as if we can’t do any good or bad things outside of that.

Re “bankers” and the gold standard – reminds me of researching Ezra Pound for my master’s thesis. If I remember right, he talked about the gold standard for economic reform (he also at one point supported a sort of “scrip” currency that was used by a socialist party in Canada – he was kinda incongruous like that). Anyway, yeah, his economic talk was often part of his anti-Jewish rhetoric. E.g. the Canto against “usury.”
