Feminism 1.0 was in the 19th century, clamoring for the right to vote, own property and hold elective office. In case you didn’t know, it was also strongly anti-abortion. The 2.0 version emerged in the 1960s, and we all know how that went.

But the old 2.0 feminists are discovering the limits to what they can say, and how their movement has been co-opted by the 3.0 feminism and their allies – psychotically deranged and gender-confused men. There is a rough justice being acted out, likely misunderstood except by the most astute social psychologists and spiritual confessors. Men are sick of being used as a punching bag, which has been done through Hollywood, print media, sit-coms, government policy, comics and woke corporations.

For decades now men have been insulted, starting with the shopworn insult of “male chauvinist pig” in the 60s and 70s. But without a Christian grounding, this injustice is going off the rails on a subliminally dangerous tangent.

No, men are not marching down state capitals and the Washington Mall with hard-hats, Popeye muscles and tattoos. That would be too obvious. What they have done is so absurdly childish, it can only be satanic.

With a Trans Day of Vengeance slated for April 1 in Washington, and Tennessee a target for passing legislation to prevent child mutilation, these events are not coincidences.

Rather, they are pretending to be women. They have taken the cue that women cannot be touched, along with certain fashionable racial minorities, which are being invented with new terms almost daily, such as “Latinx,” a term which is detested by most Latinos.

So now these biological men have stolen an authentic justice that emerged from 20th century feminism: women’s sports. Men are also demanding entrance into women’s restrooms where they have full view of women and young girls. They are enlisting the new 3.0 feminists, at least for now, who are too naive to realize how they are being used.

And, they are dangerous. In New Zealand, an angry mob came close to gang-murdering feminist Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull , who came to speak out on behalf of the Old Feminism. The New Zealand government admitted her into their country, with regret, calling her views “despicable,” and basically encouraging mob violence. “Let Women Speak,” which she represents, has its limits, and she found out that men, pretending to be women, have a strength that can lead to confrontations which are similar to getting too close to a tornado.

Then we have NPR, that bastion of a dry, cutting-edge, taxpayer-supported and pseudo-intellectual liberalism, running segments of how the “trans” movement is arming itself with guns, for self-defense. It’s called “Rainbow Re-load,” naturally. These imaginary threats are likely concocted in editorial conference rooms, then on cue are given a fake legitimacy by dutiful and ambitious reporters.

So, in the report we can hear these trans-people chattering away with semi-automatic rifles on Saturday mornings, sharpening up their inner-male, and blazing away at silhouetted targets, perhaps of Archie Bunker, Donald Trump or Mother Teresa. It must feel good.

Now we have the Nashville Shooter, who just took out three little children and three staff members at a Christian school. The mainstream media is, predictably, citing this as another reason for gun control, but they perhaps missed the NPR segment.

More importantly, they are intentionally shielding us from the full contents of the terrorist’s “manifesto,” which will explain the purpose and justification for the crime. That much we know from the murderer’s own last messages. Yet that paragon of faked stupidity and ignorance, Merrick Garland, tells us that they are still working on whether or not this is a hate crime. No doubt the government bureaucrats are trying to decide if they want to lose the manifesto, hope it goes into a memory hole, or doctor it.

The sexual identity of this angry female murderer was confusing to nail down. This occurred because the politically correct editors observe the absurd courtesies that emanate from the various trans AP media guides. These are a jumble of cutting-edge and ever-changing psycho-babble, instructing us on how to talk to avoid giving offense. I felt oiled and dirty just visiting their sites. Even the NY Times could not make up its mind, and ended up apologizing for (correctly) identifying the terrorist as a female.

And, to no one’s surprise, the mainstream media is victimizing the alphabet community by saying that the Nashville attack has endangered them … through imaginary retribution and “hate speech.” If your mind feels tangled up trying to make sense of all this, think how their own must operate.

With a Trans Day of Vengeance slated for April 1 in Washington, and Tennessee a target for passing legislation to prevent child mutilation, these events are not coincidences. Imagine what would be going on in Washington if there was a MAGA rally a week after a redneck had attacked a liberal school in Manhattan.

If Donald Trump was responsible for egging on January 6, some people might finger NPR as an instigator of mass murder. After all, the guilt-by-association card is part of the Left’s playbook. Since they have promoted conservative “hate speech” as worthy of punishment, NPR’s dilemma is going to require a lot of difficult squirming.
