The Following is a response to a video Uploaded by Alex Jones’s Conspiracy site infowars.com. I will give a summary and refutation of it below
So in the beginning Watson opens with what is essentially a rebranding of MGTOW principles tweaked to suit his and Alex Jone’s conspiracy agenda, where fault cannot be put on women, but where it is instead put on the shoulders of an overarching and, largely male nefarious conspiracy theory. Despite his claims otherwise in this video this is an exact equivalent to patriarchy theory I’ve discussed how in previous videos but for now we’ll put that aside, he then tells men how they’re “confused” setting the stage for what will become what is according to him, a mass reorientation of men toward the roles that he claims are “proper” for men which of course according to him are the roles of provision, loyalty and sacrifice on the part of men, in exchange for their families and babies back from the women who, according to Watson have all been “entranced by a cultural marxist agenda”. He then pans to a picture of assorted figures from the 90’s and ascribes this moral collapse of traditional gender roles to the “moral relativism” and “Nihilism” of the 1990’s. Many of you I’m sure will be already familiar with these pejoratives, I don’t really have to explain to you how this language is generally used as a smear by the various gynocentric manospherian communities that currently exist other than to say that what you’re currently experiencing is a galvanization in response to the increasing popularity of MGTOW against MGTOW by the various sub factions of the manosphere, that until now have managed to conceal the fact that their entire existence is a derivative of a massive, sustained mating ritual.
MGTOW puts a giant wrench in the plausible deniability of these subsections of the manosphere that want to keep operating under the banner of wishing to help men, while maintaining their not so hidden (anymore), gargantuan, slithering writhing puss filled mating ritual. This is just one giant appeal for women to “like” men again, and its also just one big chance to say, look those guys play video games they’re losers, like us like us please like us, the only difference between Watson character and the communities in the manosphere that suffer from these same afflictions is that Watson is, frankly just more open about it all, and as you’ll see in the video there will be several moments where he appears to be almost begging women, like people would in one of those VHS mail in dating services, think mad magazines lowered expectations skits if you remember those.
What’s funny is that as he’s hurling these pejoratives and blaming “the 90’s” and while he does this, a collage of prominent figures of the 90’s and early 2000’s flashes before the screen as if to indicate which influential cultural figures are to blame. The list of people are sometimes bewildering and other times downright hilarious, there’s people like Kurt Cobain prominently displayed, and on this I can agree that Cobain was very self loathing regarding his own masculinity, but I for one tend to see him more of a victim of feminism than anything else. Perhaps we’ll leave that as a topic for a future video. Another figure on display is Micheal Jordan, one of the most successful at athletes of all time and certainly not someone who had a lack of women available to him, some other prominent figures are self made millionaires some rappers and pop artists, that at best were a reflection, not a cause of this moral decay. He then posits a philosophy of “neo masculinity” which differs from MGTOW, according to him in its “non cynicism”. In other words, Neo Masculinism is seeking to repair the damage that feminism has done to relationships, he conveniently leaves out that it was not feminism in fact that has damaged relationships between men and women, but women themselves, he blames the person who leads a horse to water instead of the horses that drink it, and neglects to mention completely, the free and 100% voluntary choice that women have to divorce men, that they make in the vast majority and will continue to make in the vast majority
From here on out he lists the traits of this neo masculinity and calls it an “entire lifestyle optimization program”. Well… correction, he uses the manipulative sales technique of creating a two tiered and yet equivalent distinction, where the latter distinction is offered up as superior, even though its the same exact thing as the former distinction, so read it again here and see if you can catch it.
“so what are the traits of neo masculinity? this isn’t just about acting like a stereotypical alpha male? “its an entire lifestyle optimization program, that encompasses many facets”
So, on one end he seeks to denigrate “acting like a stereotypical alpha male” and he does this likely to lull the increasing number of men that are rejecting PUA alpha beta nonsense back to sleep or to get them off their guard, and then he says, “its an entire lifestyle optimization technique that encompasses many facets”. Basically, after he tells you its not acting like a stereotypical alpha male, he tells the suggestible men listening to him that you can achieve neo masculinity by… acting like a stereotypical alpha male. It’s one part recycled PUA trope, one part hall mark card marketing and another part that consists of using impressive sounding but ultimately meaningless words to persuade the listener. I’ts really a form of manipulation that advertising agencies employ to simple minded women to get them to part with their money, or I should say their husbands money if you’re a good little traditionalist workhorse for the missus,
It’s like saying,
Are you tired of having frizzy hair and split ends? well if you buy our neo shampoo you won’t have that problem anymore, what is the patented formula of our neo shampoo you say, well this isn’t just like any other shampoo on the market touting itself as the next big thing, its a holistic retin a micro infused, hair treatment system with patented surfactant beads.
It’s nonsense, it doesn’t mean anything. It’s saying, tired of the same old shampoo? well then, here’s the same old shampoo repackaged with pretty new colors.. now give us your money.
After this, he continues to recite his list of the tenants of new masculinism, which basically amount to barnes and noble bookstore level generic self help platitudes, he mentions game, and “knowing the true nature of women”… Neglecting to mention that MGTOW have deciphered the true nature of women, I would argue that they’ve done so more thoroughly than even the PUA’s, without the negative side effect of then having to organize our entire existence into a giant sniff of pussy, Yes, Paul Joseph Watson, some people, believe it or not consider it a worthwhile way to pass the time by playing a video game or two, and no this is not “giving up on life”, its a hobby, just as valid as anyone else’s, its escapism and everybody does it. As much as Alex jones, your Obese overweight boss claims that football is a psy-op by the new world order he sure looks judging by his size like he regularly plops himself on the couch to watch some sports event and waste the time away, I guess that disqualifies him from being a “neo masculinist” according to your very own logic?
Watson seems to infer after this that neo masculinists in comparison to MGTOW pursue “self reliance and self discipline”, the mistake he makes of course in saying this is that MGTOW also purse self discipline and self reliance, we have been for a long time, long before he came up with this silly neo masculinist nonsense.
Then he goes on to list physical fitness, things like weight lifting as a tenet of his neo masculinism. This is, again, just generic simple advice that i actually support, I think men should lift weights and exercise, it feels great it’s good for you, and again, I’m absolutely sure that plenty of MGTOW do lift weights, this is a non issue, and certainly will not do a damned thing to combat bias divorce laws, or feminism as a whole, it will simply improve your overall health and perhaps slightly raise your chances of meeting some women that are attracted to a muscular frame. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, other than the fact that it’s just old repackaged self help nonsense being peddled as some new age manhood, this weightlifting stuff is particularly bizarre since it seems to be come invariably from people who do not appear to regularly lift weights at all.
I haven’t been in the gym much lately, I’ll just be straight up honest with everyone here, the most weight I’ve ever benched pressed was 215 pounds, these days I’m lucky of I can regularly rep 175, I don’t know where this puts me on the scale of “neo masculinity” and frankly i just don’t care, I’m not the one attempting to disparage men for the crime of not lifting enough weights or playing too many video games, Watson is, and if you ask me, it doesn’t look like he’s some buff, ripped weightlifter from where I’m watching. He then goes on to talk about “lifestyle optimization, eating a healthy diet, and surrounding yourself with the right people etc.”. Again, all things that MGTOW do not oppose and even encourage to varying degrees, but generally, when its all said and done, these are hallmark-esque platitudes, the same type of phraseology perfected by shysters such as Joel Olsteene, and his “prosperity doctrine”, feel good, simplistic flotsam that amounts to the adult version of telling kindergartners that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Watson then mentions “rejecting socialism and embracing entrepreneurship and hard work”… nothing wrong with that, but again simplistic, It’s the american dream mantra repackaged, nothing new or insightful here, he then talks about the dropping of testosterone levels in men interfering with all of this.
If you know anything about infowars, you’ll know that this is when the giant bloated and obsolete propaganda engine that is infowars.com opens up its maws and attempts to scoop up fledgling movements like MGTOW into its gullet in hopes of cannibalizing and assimilating sharp focused intelligent grass roots internet inspired though into their giant borg mission of defeating the new world order. This is the part where Watson is setting the stage for Alex Jones to eventually claim that misandry and the societal attack on men is all some giant result of the new world order pumping Xenoestrogens in the water, this is how mission creep is implemented, this is how controlled opposition is developed, by associating ourselves with outfits such as infowars, where good ideas go to die and to be consumed to feed Jones’s eternal jihad against the new world order that is according to Jones, going to declare martial law and put us all in fema camps, something on the order of twenty years ago. Watson then goes on to blame feminists for making the word “housewife a dirty word” despite the fact that according to him, being a housewife is just as hard, as pursuing a career. The reality of course is that no, no its not just as hard as pursuing a career, and I know that because none of these women are willing to trade their privileged positions as stay at home wives for a grueling 60 or 70 hour work week, and in fact start divorcing increasingly and predictably the more money they make in comparison to their husbands, thats a statistical fact. For some reason i suspect that this neo masculinity will not include telling women to take on a more fair share of the financial burden by working more hours so that men can get more time with their children, so as to not be seen as some distant faraway bill payer by your progeny during their most formative years, if I was a betting man id wager that were not going to be seeing any of that.
And then the subtle jab at other men for getting women to sleep with them, instead of him, You see, feminism has corrupted the pure virtuous western woman and now she’s having sex with those evil bad boys, man they’re so evil, they’re such assholes why do women pick them why don’t they pick me!
How about women sleep with whoever they damn well please?, how about we stop telling men to bribe women that aren’t attracted to them in particular by dangling the carrot of a job in front of them? how about we encourage men to keep their money in their own pockets and stop being so desperate for female approval? While we’re at it, how about we stop telling them to bash other men who these women have sex with for no other reason other than these women aren’t having sex with you? Here’s a life lesson, some women will want you, others won’t, some of these women that don’t want you will sleep with other guys, these other men aren’t “bad boys” or “assholes” for capitalizing off of that any more than you’re an asshole for sleeping with the women that do show interest in you. Watson then inadvertantly goes on to explain one of the may reasons why MGTOW exists in the first place, he says that men are having to resort to
“deploying all kinds of manipulative mind games and techniques as a way of quote reorienting women, back towards embracing the natural attractive male traits that feminism has brainwashed them into thinking are brutish arcane and misogynistic.”
It’s amazing how this philosophy he’s peddling is called neo masculinisim implying via the neo prefix that it is a new form of masculinity, but women have to be convinced that the masculinity of a bygone era is… attractive? basically the new masculinity is just old masculinity, that it? And why do women have to be convinced of what is “naturally” attractive anyway? If i see supple breasts and wide hips and a nice ass on a woman, no amount of feminist conditioning is going to convince me that this isn’t naturally attractive, Gloria Stienham slept with Henry Kissinger because, despite what she says about men, and despite what feminists say about men, and despite what women say about men the qualities that females are attracted to remain fixed. Powerful men in positions of authority are a natural aphrodisiac for women, and women aren’t “brainwashed” by anybody into not being attracted to these qualities, it’s more ikely that women lie to the types of men that Watson refers to as “Nice Guys”, in order to use them, while she sleeps with the so called bad boy that she has and always will find naturally attractive, this has been going on since time immemorial, eons before feminism existed and it will continue to happen after feminism fizzles out. In fact, civilization itself is merely a product of harnessing the nice guys paycheck for access to reproduction with women that would much rather be dating and fucking the bad boy, and we’d be much better off simply telling men that for a change, they should stop worrying about whether or not women want to fuck them and start worrying about putting more money in their pocket and in their bank accounts. This way, well, maybe you’re a so called “beta male” or a “Nice Guy”, but you’re a beta male with money in your pocket, and you have the freedom to enjoy a lifestyle with it that most married men and their 60 hour work weeks could only dream of
That’s right, that’s the end result of all this nonsense isn’t it, marriage and kids and all that. Obligations at best and divorce and obligations at worst. Perhaps you are an “alpha male”, but you’re an alpha male with money in your pocket and no woman on earth is going to take that away from either of these men, because MGTOW told them that they should not get married in order to “fix” the families women ruined, but that they should instead never get married and let women figure shit out for themselves for once in their lives. That’s right, women spit on basic upfront hard work and the provision of resources, they feel that they are entitled to it, and that men should give it to them and they believe it appropriate to toss men aside like disposable trash when they no longer can provide it. This is one of the many reasons why men should not provide it, they should invest it into a business, or an education, or a hobby, or a vacation, or thats right, even an xbox.
Watson continues on and tells us how women, the poor dear,s have been “reeducated through third wave feminism”. That language gentleman, that little silent capitulation that third wave feminism bullshit, that gentleman is how you know you’re being scammed. You see, if you aren’t willing to say that every single iteration of feminism, from the first to the third wave of it, is bad, then you are self censoring for fear of offending women. Do not trust people that talk this way, this is women against feminism speak for the manospheres equivalent of the 2008 banker bailout, it’s saying we fucked up, but we demand you fix it. On top of all this, if one is afraid to say that it is in fact our gynocentric nature as a species that is causing all of this as opposed to an at best, two century old industrial revolution catalyzed phenomena known as feminism then they are trying to scam you, or worse yet are incapable of understanding the nature of the problem at hand. Do not trust them. He then compares the stereotype of the spinster cat lady to MGTOW, saying that a woman going her own way is a woman who satiates her desire for reproduction with animals, in this case cats. This is a flawed comparison since one of the core tenets of MGTOW surrounds learning to control your base biological urges and not letting them control you or the way you live your life, some of us want kids, some of us don’t, but all of us know the ramifications of reproducing with women these days, and this is why most of us aren’t interested in reproducing even if we do want children on some level, according to Watson this is all going to fit into some grand depopulation agenda conspiracy quite nicely and we’ll probably get accused of being minions of the new world order for wanting things like male birth control, or wanting to reproduce through surrogacy or pursuing basically anything that doesn’t give women more control over men over their own progeny. The videos finishes off with a recap, saying that this neo masculinism is about rejecting an attack on traditional masculinity, despite again having the term new or neo masculinity in its very name, women are brainwashed by cultural marxism etc. again gentleman i don’t like having to do this but at times it is necessary and this is a pretty egregious example of an attempt to coax men back onto the plantation with some new age bullshit on a pretty big platform so I’ve addressed it here.
