I Don't Recall Ever Wanting to Shut Down a Feminist Conference

Short version.

Bachelor Pad Economics is, among others, sponsoring the International Conference on Men's Issues this upcoming June.  I was also intending on riding my motorcycle out there for a little summer road trip.

Apparently they've received enough threats that the Detroit Police are going to be "needed" to protect the event (I call it a shake down)  Naturally this has raised the costs of holding the event to the point they are going to have to raise money to host the event.

Regardless of whether this event occurs or not, I only have one question - who has a track record of shutting down speeches and thus shutting down the freedom of speech?

Evil, right wing, libertarian, conservative men's rights groups

or

Liberal, leftist, feminist groups?

There is no more obvious proof as to which group is a hate group, hell bent on forcing their political agenda on others and which one is not.

Minimum wage has gone up to 15 dollars an hour in Seattle- INSANE!!!

Tom Leykis is going insane on his show.

Say goodbye to more jobs and businesses. Fucking socialists- destroying opportunities and properity.

Me thinks you have just posited the framework for a "Breakout Session" at the event.

They've already blasted through their funding goal. I continue to be amazed at how evil the lefties are.

I wish they'd get this worked up about things that matter--like executing women for becoming Christians, etc. Where are the feminists protesting outside the Saudi and Sudanese embassies?

What ddi Leykis Say exactly?

Can one of you tell me I want to know? I haven't listened to him in years

See motorcitymuckraker.com for a good description of Detroit

Threats? The police would be needed to protect protesters from random street violence.

Or just go there and act like men. If the feminists were demanding an equal amount in reparations, would you pay?

What is the point of a men's conference where you have to check your testicles at the door?

I'd contribute to suing and embarrassing the opponent into bankruptcy and male insensitivity courses. Not one dime in ransom or tribute.

Disclaimer - I'm just north in Southfield where I see the smoke signals of decline.

Aaron C., 'You' are 'crazy'. I was searching something on 'YouTube', 're: 'expatriation', and some presentations (or, videos, as most term them) listed. One was a gentleman speaking about investments, retirement, etc. Then, something caught my attention, entitled, 'why you should not invest'. I played it, and I became 'frozen'. As initially noting the title, it caught my eye, because something resonated innately, 'this is it, absolutely, absolutely, this is 'the truth'. But, I became 'frozen', because I was glued to the screen, not believing my eyes - because you are my lawyer's exact 'twin'. Then, as I observed your mannerisms, etc., I have broken out into uncontrollable laughter - bec. you're him, to a 't', a carbon copy.! That's my current comment. I think I'll email a pt 2 msg, further commentary, near future. Cannot do that for some reason on this (cotton pickin) mobile device, without (receiving an) error. PS-

Next year, have the conference someplace they won't be able to find, or be willing to venture into Icky Country. Canyon, Texas. Las Vegas...New Mexico. Silverton, Colorado. Escalante, Utah. These twirps won't be able to find the joint, or if they do, will find it wholly too backward for them. In all cases, amazing scenery, hiking climbing and jeep trails abound, classes can be held in areas these keyboard commandos could never reach to harass. You get the bonus of solitude, creation, leaving the place cleaner than you found it and doing comparison pictures to what their events look like afterward, e.g. like a tornado blew through. Bonus points v2, numerous lookout points to make sure the few asshats can find some goodies left waiting for them. Which the urban wonders will never notice.

I think the left has had been on the winning side of destroying free speech for so long they forget how horrible it is. We need to Remind them of a time when leftist were wrongly shut up. I am talking about MCCARTHYISM.

Let's call them Mccarthists as we ought to.

Feminist protestors? The easiest answer to preventing violence and providing security would be to allow the men attending the conference to protect themselves by all means necessary. These fucking feminazis, shutting things down for security reasons when the security needs to be there to protect the feminazis themselves.

Richard Fernandez writing at the Belmont Club noted:

It is impossible to understand the politics of the Left without grasping that it is all about deniable intimidation.
