UPDATE: After second cancellation, Calgary’s Red Pill screening is back on and sold out!

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.

Brian Jean thinks he can straddle both sides of the fence and keep his balance. I hope he loses the WR leadership to Derek Fildebrandt. Good on the Plaza for doing the right thing here. Feminism is cancer and the lunatics need to pruned back.

I would like to see somebody make a documentary on leftists that go around shutting everything down.

Wow. They don’t know anything about it, haven’t seen it, how on earth can they even comment.
So disappointed in Brian Jean. He should be fairly embarrassed.
I certainly am embarrassed for him.

Well I remember the “protest” of the Harper defunding of absolutely ridiculous liberal party feminist projects when Harper came to power…in Charlottetown a march was held from UPEI to the CBC station…a distance of perhaps 200 yards….attended by 14 lesbians who take womyn’s studies at UPEI…and THAT was news….

Liberal party feminist support is taxpayer hydroponics and academic astroturf…it is not grass roots. You have nothing to fear by calling it’s bluff.

Holly Nicholas, great report!
What planet are we on says it all… The venue took the right stand.

Sold out? That outta make the feminists furious. I can think of very few things that make me happier than knowing the feminists get all upset about about this documentary.

Next time pick a venue in red pill country where degenerate communists fear to tread – say Okotoks or Airdrie
