Bettina Arndt‘s comment on the media’s treatment of Cassie Jaye, maker and director of The Red Pill, is worth reading.
What is going on in this country? I’ve spent the last few days looking after Cassie Jaye, the filmmaker who produced the wonderful documentary on men’s issues – The Red Pill. Australia became the first country in the world to ban the movie last October. We then saw a series of screenings closed down due to protests from tiny groups of feminist extremists, with cinema owners even given death threats for daring to show the movie. Read on
The documentary THE RED PILL by film maker Cassie Jaye has caused some nailing-biting among the mindless left in Australia. It’s been embarrassing to listening to the ‘commentary’ of some of Australia’s more popular television ‘talk’ shows. The critics on Seven’s ‘Sunrise’, and Ten’s ‘Project’ and ‘Studio Ten’ launched into Cassie Jaye, a delightful young woman, with the bare-face admission that they had not seen her documentary. It was kindergarten level stuff. Mark Latham accurately describes their performance on his most recent program under the heading of ‘What’s gone wrong with the mainstream media’. At a later date I will post my review of the highly praised ‘The Red Pill’.
One of the people Cassie Jaye interviewed was Karen Straughan, a leading figure in the defence of men against the Marxist feminists who now dominate women’s issues. Straughan gave impetus to the Men’s Movement with a video posted five years ago in which she outlines the false claims feminists make about men and their alleged power, violence and oppression of women. Watching her video ‘Feminism and the Disposable Male’ will be a good introduction to Cassie Jayes’ The Red Pill. Straughan’s video has had nearly 1.5 million views.
Political prudence aims at ‘combining the principles of original justice with the infinite variety of human concerns.’
