    Terry Gilliam faces backlash after labeling #MeToo a 'witch-hunt'

    "The director Terry Gilliam has invited renewed backlash after repeating his claim that he is a “black lesbian in transition”, assailing the #MeToo movement as a “witch-hunt” and asserting that some of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims are “adults who made choices”.
    The website PinkNews offered swift condemnation, calling the 79-year-old’s comments “a feeble attempt to prove that white men are the real victims”.

    The Time Bandits director and Monty Python cast member, who first described himself as a black lesbian in interviews last year, made his latest comments to the Independent while promoting his film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, released later this month.

    On to the #MeToo movement, he said: “I want people to take responsibility and not just constantly point a finger at somebody else, saying, ‘You’ve ruined my life.’”

    He continued: “#MeToo is a witch-hunt. I really feel there were a lot of people, decent people, or mildly irritating people, who were getting hammered. That’s wrong. I don’t like mob mentality.”

    Of course they did. The whole personal identity thing is their game and others aren't allowed to play. How dare a privileged white male call them out on their hypocrisy?

    Go on Terry.

    Pure satire.

    It's women that are suffering an identity crisis trying to be men, think like men, act like men, and in their dismal failure, decide the better route to self improvement is to transplant their identity crisis in us, but we an't having none of it! I identify as a fucking prick in all definitions of the word! Mostly because that's what a man is for denying women any foothold on our emotions or leverage on our decisions.

    After all, it's their "emotions" liberated to "action" that shows just how bat-shit crazy they are! The only way to deal with this empowered bat-shit-crazy is to avoid it at all expenditure, as if your life depended on it, because it does! Life with these modern creatures is life tied to a speeding truck! Cut loose and you'll live a longer, happier, and more prosperous life.

    No wife, happy life.

    I'll echo that sentiment MGTOWer: No wife, happy life.

    The few men who claim to be "happily married" are either lying to maintain the status quo or forgot what happiness (and freedom) feels like a LONG time ago.

    Wives are like children, they're best being someone else's problem! Even back in the day (long before our time) when the family was considered a man's domain and not the other way around, women were at best tolerable or sent packing penniless and no custody rights to the children. The deal now is no deal at all and not negotiable. Today's best offer is comparable to yesteryear's worst! Great Granddad would have told them to go fuck themselves and so will I! Back to sq 1! My sovereignty above all else! Otherwise I'm just another one of histories willing slaves!

    I really hope the witchunt will increase in intensity and aggressivness, al those men that live and get money out of women interest like actors and directors should be the first ones to fall.

    Let the idiots calling mgtows incels or calling mgtows insecure and weak be the first one to experience a divorce and a fall from grace straight from the hive's anger.

    I want to see leftist white men being kicked out from office from a woman, a police chief forced to retire to leave his place to a woman and I want a government made from women only....that and more since apparently enough is never enough to wake up certain men.

    I'll never forget seeing a TV news story long ago of a big ritzy hotel gathering downtown for folks celebrating their 50th, 60th anniversaries, etc. A reporter questioned an old geezer sitting by his other half what his secret was for a long successful marriage.... His response in 'old wheezy man voice': "Give her whatever she wants" and he was dead serious. Imagine getting married at a very young age and living in servitude for 60 years, living by that code.... No. Thank. You.

    Meetoo is pure witch hunt. I can't wait to see Weinstein walking free, I am sure it will happen because my feeling is that it was all a ride at a rich man to squeeze money out of him in compensations.

    It's pretty simple. Weinstein offered epic film roles for women who slept with him. This is why people become producers and get involved in the film industry in the first place.

    I've worked in the film industry and broadcast television. If an attractive women, or man for that matter, gets an offer for a job/role, then they would have to offer their body for sexual pleasure. If they are unattractive, then they would have to offer money or a combination thereof.

    Harvey Weinstein is innocent 100%.

    One thing I will say, maybe Weinstein should have treated the women he slept with, with a little more respect and dignity, as it seems that he is not the most gentlemanly kinda guy.

    But nevertheless, there would still be a few women here and there who would like to get a slice of his paycheck.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself.

    The elites of Hollywood are all in on the game so they are not going to let him walk free. They will use him as a scapegoat to hide the real crimes that are happening in Hollywood.

    I wish I had a #METOO supper-weapon, I would put half the population in jail! Not naming any genders, but the half that belongs there!

    Re: Terry Gilliam faces backlash after labeling #MeToo a 'witch-hunt'

    I read in a comments section recently one guy crapping all over MGTOW saying that men must:
    (a) chase the primal urges their dicks create for them
    (b) 'rise to the challenge' of having a women in their lives
    (c) be concerned about the propagation of the human species (in an overpopulation crisis)

    You can't help anyone who decides to surrender to their base blue-pill urges like that.
    Nor should you listen to them - anything they say. It's all shaming language to get you onto the plantation.
    They need to keep people in the herd because they need to be in the herd themselves.

    They're sad, sorry little sheeple.

    Wee said. Tradcons like these are so dead inside. They project bravado, but watch them inside the home. They literally lick the back side of their wives when they know she is milking their credit cards and spending it on chads and tyrones.

    And yet they have the gall to lecture men who simply exit the plantation.

    MGTOW is just saying what needs to be said, and the truth is too hard to swallow - that is why lies and self-sabotage exist. It is easier to just convince yourself that things aren't that bad, things may improve, your wife will appreciate you, one day. She will realise how good you are when she divorces you.

    Meanwhile, you turn 50/60, without any money, any assets, any experience, anything to show for your efforts.

    Your wife? She is enjoying the occasional orgy, gang bang, yoga classes, expensive organic vegan food, retreats in exotic locations - all coming out of your retirement.

    Your kids? They don't care either, and they don't respect you. And why the fuck should they? You are an idiot who was manipulated and every time some red pills are presented you not only refuse, but shame other men for swallowing it.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    The funny part about blue-pill men is their greatest fear is being SHAMED or not getting society's fucked up stamp of approval.
    It's really crazy when you think about it. Or, maybe MGTOW are just wired differently and we just truly DGAF - we're BLESSED with DGAF.

    It's IDGAF, the "I" meaning solidarity, and uninfluenced by other IDGAF's, it's the drivers seat to a very fast life full of road hazards and debris!
    IDGAF is like driving over police stop strips with run-flat tires!

    I guess forks and knives are considered supper weapons, but that's not what I meant.
