Feminists blame manosphere for shootings

From an article in The Atlantic:
The idea that feminism is decadent, and is destroying Western civilization; the idea that women’s natural role is to have children, and to be subservient to men; the idea that strong men are needed to save the world through violence — all of these arguments are found across extremist websites, and in the words of shooters themselves. Anti-feminist rhetoric is a powerful gateway to violent white nationalism, and it is calculated to appeal to the demographic overwhelmingly responsible for mass shootings: young white men.

The 28-year-old man awaiting trial over the Christchurch massacre wrote a self-justifying screed titled “The Great Replacement.” It begins: “It’s the birthrates. It’s the birthrates. It’s the birthrates.” ...

Then there’s the sexual revolution. Put simply, Western women are largely choosing for themselves whom to have sex with, rather than having their lives dictated by families, religion, or the state. ...

Finally, anti-feminist ideology has the capacity to become a 360-degree conspiracy theory, similar to the kind of anti-Semitic ideas that flourish online. Feminists are presumed to influence all government decisions, even though women are still underrepresented at every level of elected office. Across the fractured, diverse outposts of the manosphere, “one of the few things they will agree on is a conspiratorial view of feminism,” Murdoch says. “They don’t consider that it was ever a movement for gender equality. They think it was a guise to assert control over men.”
Dalrock adds:
The article doesn’t even try to tie mass shooters to any manosphere sites. Instead, it equates antifeminism in general with mass murderers. Ironically it simultaneously claims that:

By definition being antifeminist is a heretical radical fringe position. All right minded people today enthusiastically support feminism, and only dangerous and insane people would dare to oppose feminism. 
Feminism is not a powerful force in our society. If you believe it is a powerful force in our society you are peddling an insane conspiracy theory because as feminism teaches us, women are powerless in our patriarchal society.
This is just part of a hot new trend to blame white males for everything.

Gillette attacked masculinity in a controversial ad campaign a few months ago, and now the results are in -- it cost the company $8 billion!

I don't know how much of this is real, but this site gives examples of Jews blaming whites for everything, and then saying that they are Jewish, not white. They pretend to be oppressed minorities, whenever that is politically advantageous. As an example of this nonsense, actress Rosanna Arquette tweeted that she was ashamed of white people, whines about being a victim, and goes on the blame Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein. She should admit that she is ashamed of being Jewish, not white.
