Leftist “beta males” complain that “12 Strong” movie promotes “toxic masculinity”

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

Leave it to the left to condemn a military story for promoting the wrong kind of masculinity.

That's what they're doing with Jerry Bruckheimer's new movie, 12 Strong, which tells the true story of America's "horse soldiers" in post-9/11 Afghanistan. 

These "progressive" political gripes aside, what is 12 Strong like as a movie?

Parts of it will leave you on the edge of your seat, but unlike the epic Dunkirk, 12 Strong is more of an "intimate" war movie. It's beautiful to watch, with some standout acting.

But the film does have its flaws, as I'll tell you in this review.

All I had to do was see the poster to know that yep that’s a movie want to see. You know it’s funny but it all those ‘toxic’ males that happily married to a sexy as hell loving woman that doesnt berate them every chance they get. Oh yeah and their bed is a place of blissful, magical paradise.

Another thought struck me, despite what all the limp wristed hand wringers think. It will likely do alot better at the Box Office than the SJW themed pablum being spewed out of Wienstien-Wood these days.

It’s those Toxic Males that keep your throat from being cut in your sleep you sad, little, pathetic Soy Boys… Or should i say “Soy People”? Meh… Who cares?

The feminists and this transgender crowd are trying their best to destroy the male of the species.At this rate urinals may become obsolete because a urinal is exclusively male and therefore non inclusive to those without the requisite anatomy.

Hey, I like this trend of ridiculing beta males and beta male social policy!
I revel in the glory of my alpha male masculinity…
…and I don’t care if your feelings are hurt by that.

Every time I meet a new herd of horses I’m going to have to work with, the very first thing I do is jump into the coral and quietly walk straight lines through the herd – make them get out of my way, gently and firmly, and in no uncertain terms if they challenge me. It’s all about your ‘energy’ with animals. I do it to establish dominance in that herd – I found out after the fact that it establishes you as the alpha horse in that herd – in their minds. The alpha ‘attitude’ I exhibit – or what the lefty, urban liberal panty waists like to call ‘toxic masculinity’ – was developed out of an instinct for survival – my survival…and both the horses and I are safer with me being the alpha!
I don’t live in an urban center because I don’t want to catch those beta male cooties most of them seem to be infested with – and I just bought a bunch of old westerns on DVD

You’re doing great work here. Quality insight, attention to detail etc. But … you need to talk slower. It’s like you’re in a big hurry to go do something else. Just sayin’. It’s not an auction.

If we listen to these leftist male pussies their wouldn’t be any action movies.

Any male who finds this movie offensive should turn in their “man card” and hide in their safe space.

I find myself caring less & less what these soy boys want or what they say. I don’t like what they like & they don’t like what I like. They should just stick to their Bronie conventions & leave me alone.

Good review. Like the reviewer, just knowing the protagonists of this film are alpha males, ie. good husbands, fathers, patriots and loyal comrades at arm, ensures that I will probably give the picture a view, if not at the theater, at least as a rental.

I confess that I am not a great fan of war films, particularly those set in bleak settings in either Afghanistan or Iraq, but I enjoyed Eastwood’s’ “American Sniper” so, if this film is half as good as it is touted to be I am am sure I will enjoy this as well. Chris Hemsworth is good in films which require a credible alpha male.

Excellent commentary Ben.

“Toxic Masculinity” – another authoritarian leftist buzzword that should be relegated to the garbage. Men who embrace this ideology will no doubt scratch their head and question why they are still 30 year old virgins!
