Bernier “sexist”? Campaign ad elicits “red pill” reaction from SJWs

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator Andrew Lawton
 

According to the evidence, Conservative leadership candidate Maxime Bernier is a sexist, misogynistic, woman-hater.

The evidence, of course, refers solely to a meme he posted yesterday urging supporters to “take the red pill” by voting for him. The meme includes deliberately cheesy photographed images of Maxime Bernier’s head on Laurence Fishburne’s body from the famous red pill/blue pill scene of The Matrix.

It’s not the first time Bernier has invoked the Matrix, but this time it piqued the interest of BuzzFeed reporter Jane Lytvynenko, who tweeted at Bernier a number of times demanding an apology, retraction and explanation for his tweet.

Unbeknownst to Bernier—and pretty much everyone else on the internet, “The Red Pill” is also the name of a Reddit forum where men talk about their sexual conquests. It’s also been used as a slogan for the men’s rights activist community (which is why a documentary about MRAs was titled The Red Pill.)

But no application of the term is as widely known as the original, correct meaning—those who take the blue pill live in blissful ignorance while those who take the red pill see the world as it truly is, however unpleasant.

Oh how true that is.

Bernier refused to apologize, saying he was referring only to The Matrix. People still accused him of “dog whistling”—when you say something that someone else decides is offensive, regardless of intent.

The outrage wasn’t limited to social justice warriors, however. Gerald Butts, Lisa Raitt, and Erin O’Toole urged Bernier to retract the tweet and apologize.

The point of the red pill is that truth can be painful, but is necessary. Bernier proved that, albeit unintentionally.

Maxime Bernier has always been my first choice. Once he said he would end supply management of dairy products, which, of course, includes more than eggs, he had my vote.
Even though he is a Quebecois, he has shown that he is more than willing to test his mettle against the antiquated push-back from a diminishing (but vociferous due to their federally-favoured status) number of farmers in his province to allow the rest of we Canadians affordable milk, egg, chicken products.

All of the people in politics who think that their knee jerk reaction to the expression “the red pill” is going to sure up 51% of the vote are in for the same disappointment that Hillary Clinton got for campaigning like this……

Supporters of the MRM and those who have taken the red pill will make note of your names and shit list you come election time…..and put to rest this notion that people like Judy Rebick broker the non existant “womyn’s vote”.

Half of the population is not going to put the pencil in their vagina and make a circle with a cross comming out the bottom next to the name of the biggest man hating bitch or self loathing masochist on the ballot and then say “so there that’s the womyn’s vote”

Raitt and O’Toole just proved why they cant be taken seriously as leadership contenders. Just liberal wannabees.

To all Rebel followers: In order to simplify your choice for the new Conservative leader, just flip on the CBC.
Whatever candidate the CBC lies about, disparages and slanders the most is the very candidate we should all be voting for.

Imagine one of the more right wing cons were to win the next Canadian election. We’d see the exact same result we’re seeing in the US right now. For all his faults, and they are many, President Trump’s victory lifted up the rock and cast bright, bright sunshine on the left and it’s insidious infection of american society. With President Trump’s win, the left moved from only policing schools from kindergarten to college and the MSM to handing out speech suppression, beatings and arson to the general population while celebs and dem politicos cheer them on. People across north america are waking up to how close they are to a cultural marxist coup. This will not end peacefully in my opinion. I very much doubt the moral, sane and tax-paying majority will accept becoming slaves in a sharia/marxist dystopia with wide open borders!

I don’t have a problem with a leader from Quebec. He has more pluses than minuses in my opinion. When I add them up there are really a very few insignificant ones on the negative side.

Scheer who is my second choice is more apt to be ‘lite’ than Bernier. If Bernier does what he says he will do(which is always the question) I think he not only could beat Justin, but could also right a lot of what is wrong with Canada thanks to the Liberal globalists.

This election will be an anything but liberal election, so watch out for liberals in sheep’s clothing, KNOW WHO YOU ARE VOTING FOR!

A Conservative/Libertarian philosophy, bilingual , a good chance at some Quebec votes, decent support across the country , presents well and has some experience in government. What’s not to like?
commented 2017-03-08 04:48:49 -0500
You Will be so disappointed if Bernier becomes Conservative leader. But I will have the pleasure of saying, you guessed it , I Told You So.
Just a few things:
—Incompetent.
-
-Doesn’t demonstrate decisiveness, little substance in what he says.
—Not good enough to debate against Trudeau.
-
-Is a long time separatist, supported the Bloc.
—Not a family oriented man, too much of a playboy.
-
-Poor English skills, remember Chretien.
—Another Quebec Politician, just look at the successful governments that were Quebec Politicians, Trudeau, Mulroney, Chretien, Martin, Trudeau, soon to be Bernier. What could go wrong?
-
-What’s that old saying, fool me once shame on you, fool me six times I’m an Idiot, something like that.

You gotta like a guy who doesn’t apologize every time a lefty gets his nose out of joint over some perceived but manufactured slight. Too many people have a knee jerk reaction to apologize for everything. Not Max. Mad Max is mad as hell and he isn’t going to take it any more. Sorry to mix my movie metaphors. Nw if we could just get someone in the leadership race to address islam.

Funny how the lefties are turning out to be such a bunch of prudes. Fault finding and judgemental to the end. Who could be bothered looking for stuff to get upset about. Normal people have enough grief that they don’t have to manufacture- wait for it- FAKE NEWS!

If the neurotic left hate him his numbers will just increase.
commented 2017-03-07 22:12:49 -0500
Yea, like everyone knows about a degenerate chat room where guys go to boost about their half-ass.
On the other hand, if he wants to invoke the spirit of the film, then that may be part of his philosophy and why should he apologize or revoke anything?
The way I see it is this, anyone who becomes indignant over something like this is saying more about themselves than the accused, specially a grandiose ass-whole like Gerald Butts.

from BC and a party member here
Max at the moment is the only guy that can beat Trudeau
He can delivery a large portion of the Quebec Liberal and NDP
ridings. He has visited the west many times and he started his campaign
earlier than the others.
He is very well regarded in Alberta which could have all seats going
conservative in the election
GO MAX
commented 2017-03-07 21:19:21 -0500
He is not a Laurentian elite( he represents, and was born in Saint-Georges de Beauce, for cryin out loud, you can’t get more down to earth than that) he has respect for the west and will insure the Quebec vote, which, lets face it, we need to beat Trudeau. Nobody else is even close to him except O’leary.

These twits just gave him some more free press.

Maxime Bernier IS THE MAN – Go Max Go!!!!!!!

Since the SJW’s have a beef with Bernier…he has consolidated himself at the top of my list because the opposite of an SJW opinion is the truth. Hence, they just endorsed Bernier as a top choice.

Right you are Andrew.
There is no such thing as bad press. Silly stuff like this only magnifies the stupidity, of the lunatics. You can’t back down when these retards do this, you have to push back. If I hadn’t already relegated O’toole, Peterson, and Raitt to the dust bin, their jumping on this bandwagon would be the last straw. They just showed their true colours. What, was Chong sleeping or something? This sort of thing is right down his ally. As for that loser troll, Canada-nether-land reject SJW, she really should mend that relationship with her daddy so she can stop demanding attention from such inappropriate places. Very pathetic, public display.
…And Gerry Butts, well who could expect any different from him.
Push back, push back even harder. If you let those weirdo commie, Marxist ,post modernist, antifa’s or what ever in god’s name they are, define the conversation, you are(we are) dead in the water.
commented 2017-03-07 16:17:30 -0500
So I take it the far-left “outrage machine” has given up on the old theory that Bernier is unfit because of an inconsequential boo-boo that happened at his girlfriend’s place years ago. That didn’t work, so now that the leadership contest is heating up they must desperately scramble to manufacture something else before it’s too late.
Why don’t all the hysterical snowflakes just stop humiliating themselves, “Butt” out, and let the Conservative members decide who will be the next manager of the Prime Minister’s Office?

God bless you, Maxime Bernier!!!!!!! Leftists are attacking you means that you’re doing all the right things!!!!

Well, if he’s drawing the ire of Butts, that increases his stock in my books. Hard to imagine the Left going after him unless he poses a legitimate threat.

Erin O’Toole just got bumped off of my short list for the leadership ballot…Maxime Bernier has been moved into his slot.

Of course, that’s because Maxime Bernier could possibly be the next Prime Minister. Remember, this is the bullying generation, they know how to bully and that is their tactic. Lisa Raitt is a petty, blame everyone else because she hasn’t a chance candidate. She should withdraw from the running.

When I first saw this meme I was not aware it came from Bernier, all I thought is what does The Matrix have to do with Mad Max, all the other stuff is just fools grasping at straws.
