It’s late, I’m tired, and I have a million other things to do right now, but I could not pass this up. Seems that MRA David Usher has identified the source of the problem with American women, who are gettin’ all above themselves, thinking they have a right not to be beaten by their husbands:
While Don Imus is being thrashed within an inch of his career for making neanderthal comments about the Rutgers Women’s Basketball team, and the real victims of the Duke Rape Case have finally been identified, radical feminists at Lifetime Movie Channel are committing acts of social violence against men that are far worse.
That’s right, kids: Melissa Gilbert and those hairy-legged radfems at Lifetime, with their soft focus and their Tinkly Pianos of Peril, are behind an even greater social menace than malicious prosecution: the Lifetime Movie!
Lifetime TV (also known as Lifetime Movie Network) has become a major socio-political mouthpiece for promulgation of the sexist agenda of radical feminism. LMN’s show schedule is loaded with sexist and myopic “documentaries” about abused women.
David, David: Help us see! Bring on the Lasik and free us from the poor vision of basic cable!
Some of LMN’s recent hate programming includes “Every Nine Seconds”, “If Someone Had Known”, “Broken Silence”, “The Promise”, “Dangerous Intentions”, “Dangerous Child”, “Fighting the Odds”, “Final Justice”, “A Life Interrupted”, “Lies Of The Heart”, “The Stranger Beside Me”, “Bastard Out Of Carolina”, and “Her Desperate Choice”. Not one of LMN’s shows honestly presents the true facts of domestic violence or holds women responsible for the half of domestic violence they DO initiate.
Wednesday on Lifetime, an honest, tragic story from the husband’s point of view: “Burnt Offerings: I Told the Bitch I Wanted My Steak Rare.”
LMN goes beyond broadcasting unsupportable broad beliefs about men and husbands; it is also a major lobbying mouthpiece of the radical feminist machine.
‘Cause David knows what time it is: it’s time for the radical feminist machine to lobby Congress for legislation that will punish men who just want to show their wives and girlfriends who’s really in charge:
The week of March 16th, LMN is fronting a series of events at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., apparently to scare or fool Congress into passing the International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA). I-VAWA is an illicit scheme intended to directly entitle feminists at the United Nations. Global feminists intend to use taxpayer dollars to force CEDAW and its array of Marcusian socialist agenda on the United States as well as the rest of the world.
No, David! Not the United Nations! Are they just going to hand over the keys to the Republic to France now? Why, next you’ll tell me that Lifetime is trying to get between American men and their God-given right to buy wives from countries where the women aren’t so uppity as those Ameriskanks who run around thinking they have rights and all that.
LMN recently scared Congress into reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act. As part of this, the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) was passed, which forms a “Berlin Wall” around the United States to prevent American men from marrying foreign women, on the notion that these women are being imported as sex slaves and are therefore victims of sex trafficking.
Oh, dear. I feel faint.
But surely, David — surely, nobody watches this stuff? I mean, it’s just a buncha chick movies.
LMN’s involvement as a feminist political machine runs deep. The National Organization for Women (NOW) works frequently with LMN, highlighting LMN’s “important public education messages” about “violence against women”. NOW is where it starts, and LMN is where a river of muck emerges in millions of homes.
Millions? My God! WHAT ABOUT THE MEN???
Lies about men and domestic violence may have millions of victims. The Duke Rape case is the most visible: Three young men nearly went to prison for thirty years based on no evidence whatsoever. VAWA provides the funding and legal process that shaped the Duke Lacrosse Rape case. David Evans testified to this personally: “Many people across this country, across this state would not have the opportunity that we did, and this could simply have been brushed underneath the rug just as another case and some innocent person would end up in jail for their entire life”
The disgusting part of this is that thousands of men rot in American jails simply because they did not have the financial resources to defend themselves against the crushing weight of the distorted prosecutorial system created by VAWA. We do not try these cases: untested allegations are “validated” under limited procedures, and men go to jail.
Now, David, you’re just being silly. Evans wasn’t talking about VAWA, he was talking about having enough money to hire good lawyers. And jail isn’t prison, silly boy.
Lifetime TV’s website features a large collection of feminist misinformation now considered so false that the U.N. Third Committee rejected the U.N. Secretary-Generals report, which was based on similar information. Feminist claims LMN disseminates are so unbelievable that even Russia rejected the same U.N. Report.
One false LMN claim comes from a debunked U.N. Population Fund report claiming that “one in three women worldwide will be beaten, raped, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime”.
And, well, gosh! EVEN RUSSIA rejected it!
Which is funny, because the Russian Federation ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women in 1981 (when it was still the USSR, in fact). But doesnt’ that cause problems with controlling your Russian mail-order bride?
In its fictional mini-series “Human Trafficking”, LMN claims that between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. for sale into sexual slavery each year. This wild assertion is cancelled by the truth LMN admits: despite four-year expenditures of $320-million, only 60 cases were filed and 118 convictions rendered — an insignificant 29 convictions annually — at a cost exceeding $2.7-million per conviction.
And as we all know, if someone wasn’t arrested and convicted, there wasn’t a crime at all!
LMN proudly “partners” with a large network of federally-entitled radical-feminist organizations, who misuse federal monies to generate massive quantities of false surveys and to buy propaganda time in the media, to loosen up more federal entitlements. LMN is, of course, a corrupt profiteer in this venture: these shows are ultimately partially or fully funded by taxpayer dollars as grants to feminist production houses.
You mean all those ads for Febreze don’t defray the costs at all?
When is Congress going to do the right thing and revise or rescind the Violence Against Women Act?
Congress would never permit PBS to violate fairness-in-broadcasting standards, or to lobby Congress with our federal dollars in the broadside manner demonstrated by LMN. The misinformation LMN expounds is essentially identical to serious misrepresentations of fact that caused PBS to quietly but unapologetically withdraw its documentary “Breaking The Silence” in 2006.
Anyone upset about Don Imus should be much more concerned about the Lifetime Movie Network. Imus’s comments did not actually harm anyone. LMN’s agenda wreaks havoc in marriages and emotivates passage of laws based on the deeply sexist, anti-marriage political agenda of radical feminism. This creeping agenda has led to a national divorce rate of over 50%, drives today’s record rates of non-marriage and illegitimacy, and is the primary predictor of poverty for women and children.
Dammit, if it weren’t for Lifetime movies, there wouldn’t be any divorce at all! And being married, NO MATTER WHAT, is better for women.
And Imus’s comments didn’t hurt anyone. Hey, those Rutgers players are nobody. And so is Gwen Ifill. And…
As an issue of corporate responsibility, cable companies such as Charter and Comcast should drop the Lifetime Movie Network from their line-up immediately. LMN’s agenda is exceptionally damaging to women, children, and men.
LMN must start planting seeds for personal growth and happiness in women, and stop planting dynamite in their heads. LMN’s programming should positively impact mental health of its viewers, not practice unsound psychological principles inculcating unhealthy beliefs that drive women to harm themselves and their marriages.
Unhealthy beliefs like, “I don’t have to stay married to someone who beats me and tries to control me.”
And what’s your solution, David?
For example, viewers need policies and programming that helps and encourages alcoholic or drug-addicted women into recovery programs. LMN’s programming automatically blames men for any and all marital conflict, teaches women to resolve all problems by evicting the husband from the family. This leaves troubled women do “do it all” on less money, while children are raised by a struggling alcoholic mother.
Corporate responsibility calls for marriage-building policies and programming that helps women work positively through the common problems of marriage and aging – such as the two-year baby blues, the four-year boredom, the seven-year itch, the fifteen-year mid-life crisis, retirement, and menopause.
Lifetime Movie Network’s programming hurts far more women than it helps. Its cultish programming crudely projects all imperfections and dissatisfactions of life and marriage uniquely on husbands. In psychology, “projection” of one’s problems on another person is a classic marker of the dysfunctional personality. The teaching of mass dysfunctionality by LMN is disgusting to any reasonable person, and is absolutely indefensible on any grounds.
Clearly, Lifetime should promote the idea that women are weak-willed and need men to protect them, that they’re responsible for all the problems in any given relationship, and that if they divorce, they’ll be broken, drunken, selfish sluts. And they really need to get David a sandwich.
In other words, Lifetime should become like all the other networks.
