Bonnie Bacarisse of The Daily Beast made a recent discovery that Republican Rep. Robert Fisher (R-NH) is in fact the founder of the “Red Pill,” a men’s rights misogyny group based on the online forums Reddit and 4chan.
Fisher wrote, under the username FredFredrickson, “I’m going to say it—Rape isn’t an absolute bad, because the rapist I think probably likes it a lot. I think he’d say it’s quite good, really.”
Fisher was asked if he thought it was creepy for a 40-year-old man check-out a 15-year-old’s breast. He responded by saying:
“In my opinion, no. It’s evolutionarily advantageous and perfectly natural.”
The Republican Congressman has also said that women have “sub-par intelligence,” that their personalities are “lackluster and boring, serving little purpose in day to day life.,” and that “It is literally the [female] body that makes enduring these things worth it.”
These are common topics found in the “Red Pill” forum. They also are notorious for cultivating sexual predation strategies:
The Red Pill teaches “sexual strategy.” This includes how to “spin plates,” or balance sleeping with several women at once; how to respond to women’s “shit-tests,” a social device used to determine a suitor’s “fitness”; and how to practice “negging,” a game tactic involving a backhanded compliment calculated to undermine confidence and make a woman more vulnerable to advances. Red Pillers practice “dread game,” or intentionally instilling “dread” in a partner that you have other options, and various other techniques.
Of gaming women, Fisher said, “[Women have] absolutely done this to themselves. I feel zero regret or shame pumping and dumping.”
Fisher’s group came about after having trouble in his dating life and he saw it as a way to vent about the fact that despite possessing all the qualifications of an “alpha male” he was still having trouble with women.
The lawmaker stated, “I cannot be honest about my accomplishments or ambitions without ridicule. I am running for a state political position, I’m a high level exec in a franchising company, and I own two business locations in state. I found that stating it simply… nets me negativity on dates if I’m honest.”
