You’re Wrong, @RKyleSmith: Why #MeToo Will Continue Destroying Men

Posted on | February 6, 2018 | Comments Off on You’re Wrong, @RKyleSmith: Why #MeToo Will Continue Destroying Men


Kyle Smith is a very intelligent man, but he’s also a very sane man. He hasn’t spent the past four years diving deep into the dark waters of radical feminism, which is something only a crazy man would do. We must therefore forgive Mr. Smith for this mistaken opinion:

Men are scared, and feminists are delighted. But the urge to call out and punish male sexual transgression is bound to clash with an inescapable truth: We’re all in this together, men and women. . . .

No, you’re wrong, Mr. Smith. It’s 2018, the 50th anniversary of the rise of the modern feminist movement. Five decades of cultural destruction have undermined the rational basis of male-female cooperation. Girls and boys in America no longer dream of the kind of happily-ever-after romance that seemed possible a generation or two ago. Feminism killed that dream. Porn killed that dream. Millionaire perverts in Hollywood who produce the sewage they call “entertainment” killed the dream. The atheists who control the public education system killed the dream. Lawless immoral degenerates on the Supreme Court killed the dream.

We are not “all in this together, men and women.” Or at least, not the younger generation of Americans raised on an ethos of “equality” that turns sex into a remorseless political power struggle. The late Midge Decter prophesied where radical feminism would lead in her 1972 book The New Chastity and Other Arguments Against Women’s Liberation, and our society now has reached the gloomy destination she foretold, a cold sexual landscape of hostility and fear. How can men and women be “all in this together,” when women have joined forces to destroy the family, destroy religion, destroy everything that makes life beautiful, wholesome and happy? Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, and it has succeeded so remarkably that most young women can think of no answer to their problems except to repeat radical slogans: “No means no! Smash the patriarchy!”

The more feminism has succeeded — in a world where political power is regarded as the only measure of “success” — the more miserable women have become, and the less trust there is between men and women. “Equality” requires eternal struggle: Bellum omnium contra omnes.

Is “male transgression” a new phenomenon in world history, Mr. Smith? Of course not. But the toxic influence of “social justice” as the insuperable authority in academia, in entertainment, in journalism and politics — this is a new phenomenon, at least in America. We could compare our current cultural climate to Hungary under Bela Kun or Cambodia under Pol Pot, but such historical analogies would be inadequate, as online social media technology has empowered the most insane inmates with the most authority in running the asylum. And this is what you don’t seem to get, Mr. Smith, as you conclude your column:

Turning men and women into hostile opposing camps is not going to be good for either sex.

Feminists don’t care. Isn’t that obvious by now? It does not actually matter to feminists whether women benefit from the destruction of males. The #MeToo crusade isn’t about “equality,” it’s about revenge.

Like I keep saying, people need to wake the hell up.
