The Red Pill screening in Calgary is back on and sold out after a second cancellation due to backlash from a loud minority of social justice warriors.
You might remember that the first screening scheduled at the University of Calgary and co-hosted by three campus clubs, was cancelled after one of those clubs sent an email invitation out with the subject line “Feminism is cancer.”
Politicians across Alberta, including Wildrose MLA’s and Brian Jean took to the internet to virtue signal over the movie, without ever having seen it themselves to make a proper judgment about whether it was controversial.
And now the second venue, The Plaza Theatre, cancelled the rescheduled screening after backlash from vocal SJWs who made their objections known via Facebook, email and telephone.
The venue manager tells me they received 45 complaints, but after those who wanted to see the documentary spoke up, it’s back on at The Plaza tonight at 6 pm.
The film shouldn’t have been cancelled in the first place, but kudos to The Plaza for not backing down to the cry bullies.
The screening of The Red Pill is hosted by Father’s Rights Alberta, who tell me they feel blessed to know they have the support of so many people. The film wouldn’t have been screened without the help of all those that stood up and sent messages of encouragement to the venue.
