The Red Pill is a documentary film by Cassie Jaye, a woman who identifies as a feminist and followed the men’s rights movement for a year.
The film will be eye opener for those not familiar with men’s rights activism and their message. More often than not, the people portrayed are considered to be rape apologists, proponents of violence and anti-woman.
For example, in Melbourne, Australia, Palace’s Kino Cinema cancelled their showing of the film after what they call an overwhelming 2,300 signatures were collected in protest of the film. They hadn’t even seen the movie yet.
And now, this has carried over to Canada. The Red Pill has been dropped by Ottawa’s Mayfair Theatre with no explanation given.
Watch my video for an exclusive interview with Justin Trottier, founder of the Canadian Association for Equality as he explains the situation.
I went to see the film myself and sure, there were some different viewpoints expressed, there were some ideas that might make a person uncomfortable, but only if they are uncomfortable with the truth.
This attack on free speech has the potential of striking at more screenings of the film.
CAFE has secured a new venue for the Ottawa screening and have other showings planned for the near future.
I wasn’t surprised the movie was dropped since it’s been happening across the globe, but what does surprise me is the inability of people to handle differing opinions.
