The Men’s Right Movement (MRM) is as diverse (God I hate that word) as any movement has ever been. Men, women, hetero, trans or gay; we embrace those of different backgrounds, ethnicity, religion, or politics as long as the primary tenets of the movement are front and center: human rights and compassion for men and boys, same as for women.
Unlike ideological feminism, human rights for men and boys does not mean that the other side of the coin is to be ignored, forgotten, or vilified in some warped sense of reparations or retribution. A cursory look into the inner workings of the MRM specifically, places such as AVfM and its affiliates, will undoubtedly enlighten the reader that men and boys are in fact human beings deserving of the same rights as any other human being. Deserving of the fundamental rights afforded to all humans regardless of genitalia or other such Politically Correct divisiveness. Yes, dear readers, the males of this world are indeed human with feelings of joy, sorrow, pleasure and yes, even anger.
Anger is a human emotion that although at times may negatively affect the situation at hand, but none-the-less it is a valid emotion. Dictionary.com defines anger as;
A strong feeling of displeasure and belligerence aroused by a wrong; wrath; ire.’
Movements have always had “displeasures” with the status quo. A system that oppresses a specific group or section of the population tends to elicit some sort of action by its benefactors. And those actions of the displeased tend to sometimes show a perfectly normal and justifiable emotion: anger.
Think back of the racial inequities of the ’50s and ’60s and ’70s and even ’80s–I am old enough to remember much of it, and even if you are not you will have at least read about it. Most folks would certainly agree that the grievances of black human beings were reasonable and appropriate and deserving of an angry response–and that society needed to change. Anger tended to be in the forefront of many of their responses, justifiably in most cases. Forcing a whole group of people to underclass status based solely upon their skin color is so last-century. Sadly, there are those that still to this day think that blacks are somehow lesser human than whites, but, this article isn’t about race relations.
Here we are, in the 21st century and a new level of oppression, discrimination, and downright hatred has reared its very ugly head. It’s not new and in some circles, it doesn’t even exist let alone warrant a place in word processing spell checkers.
Of course I am referring to misandry, meaning the hatred of men. The bastard sibling of the “misogyny“that feminists and most western governments claim is rampant and causing all of society’s ills with its supposed father, the “patriarchy“.
Anyhow, let us get back to the reason for this article: the angry participants within human rights movements.
Personally, I believe that we must remind ourselves to not blindly accept, support nor legitimize any and all anger as acceptable or even justified. While anger is a normal, healthy, even vital emotion that we must allow people to express, sometimes angry actions can be beyond reasonable. Civilized discourse does not always have to be civil, because sometimes anger is a necessary part of getting your voice heard. It is a tool of rhetorical necessity. But we as a movement must differentiate, if not distance ourselves, from violent, psychotic, or otherwise dangerous actions. This is a difficult endeavor when those in opposition tend to align any and all harmful discourse, specifically that which would reflect negatively, with all in the movement.
Feminists, of course response to such negatives within their movement as anomalies, fringe or radicals, and “not real feminists.” Wait, no, they only do that sometimes. And in any case they rarely condemn it.
In any case, they very rarely afford us or others the courtesy of saying “this person does not necessarily represent the whole.” As such, it is often necessary for us to do it for ourselves.
Serious members of the MRM take exception to those that would blemish the very real reasons for our movement. Men’s’ rights, fathers’ rights, and anti-feminism are not about being “anti-woman,” and no amount of saying it’s so will make it so. That is not to say that there are no “nutters” or misogynists that claim to be MRAs, for there are. But these folks are not indicative of the MRM (or MHRM as some prefer) and should always be identified and such and, whenever possible, ejected from organizations which strive to forward compassion and human rights for all.
Enter one Peter-Andrew: Nolan(c). He is also known as just plain Peter Nolan. He is also known as Joschua Boehm, Joschua-Brandon: Boehm, Peternolan9, and even “John Rambo.”
Now, I could end this article right now with one simple statement: Peter-Andrew: Nolan(c) is a nutter and his views and actions do not represent the men and women of the MRM. But, what’s the fun in that? We probably should get specific and say why.
The obvious I will dispense with right way. What sort of narcissist would try to copyright their name? And what’s with the stupid colon?
Moving on: Peter-Andrew: Nolan(c)… oh screw that. I am not going to continue with this name silliness. Nolan, as I shall now refer to him, is indeed an angry man. As with many men (and some women I might add) within the MRM, he has been taken to the cleaners so-to-speak by an ex. He has justifiable reasons for being angry.
As stated previously, anger is not necessarily wrong. Humans being humans and all, they will have human reactions. But actions caused by anger can be wrong. Especially when they cross over into hatred, statements of violence, advocating dangerous and illegal activity, slander and libel, or desires of death upon other persons. Nolan, I am afraid, is guilty of all of these things.
An Australian now living in Germany, Nolan is a product of a system that considers men as nothing more than sperm-donating wallets to do the dirty work and heavy lifting. So it stands to reason that Nolan would be angry at the system. But “angry” doesn’t even begin to describe Nolan’s actions or his state of mind.
Nolan began his trip to lala-land from the humble beginnings of yet another screwed-over husband/father statistic. A story which he has chronicled here fits the typical narrative that a good many men know all too well. Nolan states:
“All through that time I have conversed privately with her father and offered the hand of love and peace such that the damage that was doing could be minimized. In November 2007, as part of a peaceful settlement, I offered a roughly 2/3 to 1/3 split to which included the maximum awardable child support in Australia. In talking with this offer was deemed ‘more than generous’ by both on the basis that had refused to work, against my non-consent, for 14 years of the 18 years marriage. Further, I paid the vast majority of expenses for and raised them as my own as best I knew how. Let’s not mention I renovated two houses with the skills taught me by my Uncle while sat on her arse and did bugger all.”
Sounds like a man taken to the cleaners by a corrupt court system to me. He goes on to say:
“She took the proceedings hostile by committing many counts of perjury including false allegations of adultery, domestic abuse, abandonment, and being a poor father to my former children.”
There you have it: using the courts to take everything a man has, unsubstantiated claims of abuse, alienating the children, all textbook stuff those in the Men’s Human Rights Movement have heard a million times. Sadly though, as his troubles escalated, so did his spiral down into the pits of dementia. More Nolan:
“THAT is what you married men have to look forward to with the criminal scumbags in the legal fraternity. The scumbag criminals in the legal fraternity did that just to try to make it harder for me to bring them to justice. Well? They failed. And I expect men like YOU, dear reader, to take severe exception to the fact that the Family Law is actually unlawful and that your lawyers, magistrates and judges are criminal scumbags.”
Claiming that the family court system is full of scumbags is probably true, but you’ll notice the thinly veiled hints of conspiracy beginning to show.
“As a law-abiding man I have determined that ALL those who committed crimes against me will be brought to trial before a common law court. A common law court is a ‘people’s court’ and has superior recognition in law than the corrupt ‘Family Court’ and ‘Australian Federal Magistrates Court’. And if you, dear reader, do not think these courts are corrupt I have news for you.”
Nolan now implies himself to be somewhat the legal eagle, and attempts to school us as to proper terminology and practice. Additionally, he now exposes his belief in “personal sovereignty” wherein no court of law in any land has jurisdiction over him. To further exemplify that, from his book The Truth Be Told:
“This is a Lawful Notice to women and their mangina lackeys who would make up lies and slander me.
My calling, Peter-Andrew: Nolan(c) and the strawman name PETER ANDREW NOLAN(c) is copyrighted worldwide. So is my image and all aspects of my human self. Here is the contract for that copyright.
Any woman or mangina lackey who uses my name, my calling or my image without my written consent signed in red ink by my hand only is violating my copyright.
The cost of copyright violation PER VIOLATION is 1,000 troy ounces of 99.99% pure gold. So all of you women and mangina lackeys might want to consider that before you write your lies about me. I will pursue copyright violations ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD so as to collect gold to be able to re-distribute to those I perceive as in need. Nothing would give me greater pleasure than to take gold off women and their mangina lackeys and give it to men who are struggling to raise their boys because of the oppressive nature of the western ‘legal’ system today.
Any slander of me will be pursued ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. So if you women tell lies about me and try and[sic] slander me to damage my business you will be pursued. I will take your property off you as a point of honour.
If any woman wishes to make a rebuttal for anything I have said they are welcome to do so directly to me at email@example.com on an Affidavit with a Notice of Intent and Proposed Remedy signed under penalty of perjury and full commercial liability.”
UH-OH! I’m in trouble now! Maybe I should have gotten his permission to do an opinion piece based on easily and readily available information on the internet! And in case you doubt his superior abilities, please allow me to have Mr. Peter-Andrew: Nolan(c) (or is it Joschua-Brandon: Boehm(c) I forget) to tell you in his own words how like uber-totally-awesome like totally he is!
Firstly, I am one of the top Business Intelligence Consultants in the world. I have been doing BI for 22+ years and been in IT for 30+ years. We can build data warehouses about 2x faster and cheaper than anyone else can. We are now licensing our software on a subscription basis so that it is easier to acquire.
Under the calling of Joschua-Brandon: Boehm(c) I am also the sole founder of the global Mens Business Association. This is a global business network that will operate outside the jurisdiction of any government entities.
I am one of the worlds leading experts in law and governments. We have decided we don’t like the existing governments so we are creating a way of doing business outside the existing governments jurisdiction.
We will have our own courts, own passports, own laws, own contracts, own work permits, own bank, own currency. You name it. It if is run by the guvment today we are going to have an alternative that can be used by choice.
And that is just the illuminati anti-government stuff, it gets better folks. Nolan really begins to shine a light upon his neurosis and hatred of women with little gems like this;
“I shall be placing her before a court in Ireland, in front of 12 men (women failed the challenge to try her justly) and those 12 men will define what remedy she is to pay for the crimes she has committed. My commitment is that NO MAN can be given more severe remedy than is delivered to . is going to be the Irish Test Case for women being truely ‘equal’. As in ‘equal before the law’. We shall see how she likes that.”
Too many men have had their right to liberty violated by women who tell lies to the police to get their husbands arrested to ‘teach them who is boss around here’. Who is boss around here, in Australia, in the future, will be the man of the house.
To any woman who complains? F*** off. I am not interested in the comments of ANY women. Women have been asked for 2.5 years to assist stop the needless deaths of tens of thousands of men. They ALL refused. You women can stand back and see what condoning perjury, kidnapping, extortion and theft gets you. ANY WOMAN who attempts to impede my progress in this activity will be charged with obstructing a peace officer in the course of his duty as well as attempting to pervert the cause of justice.
ANY WOMAN who gets in my way will be facing a jury trial of 12 men to determine if you have committed a crime. You can ‘get on board’ or ‘stand aside’.
Now I ask you folks. Are these the words of an “angry man” that has gotten beaten down by the divorce and family courts? I say no. These are the rantings of a man who has gone above and beyond, blaming the illuminati, government, courts, and most of all women. He has now entered the nutter zone.
So disillusioned is he that when he finds himself with possible allies – or at least folks who might actually listen to his “remedy” – he takes loonyville to an all-new high. Below are but a few excerpts from a recent chat session whereas he literally goes over the edge. The following was captured [unedited] last month in a public chat forum for Men’s Rights Activists and Men Going Their Own Way:
[2/13/2014 7:39:48 PM] peternolan9: I am the only man in the world who has had the guts to video record a family court matter and put it on YT and tell the guvment involved I will kill anyone who tries to incarcerate me for that.
Man in the man-o-sphere are a bunch of fucking pussies who deseve everything happening to them…..you take the crimes commited against you up the arse and all you do is whine…..no guts…it is a total disgace.
[2/13/2014 7:40:19 PM] peternolan9: You are not “men” at all….and it is shown by the fact that no other man has done what I have done IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
[2/13/2014 8:07:42 PM] peternolan9: “So basically, you’re okay with men dying if they don’t serve YOUR purpose.”
No..I have no concern with useless eater losers kiling themselves if they are not willing to defend the children of their land….and fuckwits like you try to tell lies about me because you have no track record to point to…
Go and kill yourself…be fertiliser..then you would be doing somethign useful.
Until you have equaled my track record? Fuck off and die.
[2/13/2014 8:10:17 PM] peternolan9: I started this with “there is no point talking to men in the mra area becayse they are not willing to listen yet”
And this short interaction shows exactly that…
A bunch of losers who tolerate disgusting and disgraceful behaviour..
That is why the MGTOW boards just went down…you tolerate shitheads and fuckwits…..no one can take you losers seriously…certainly not me.
I expect to be treated with the respect I have earned…and those who tolerate fuckwit
[2/13/2014 8:23:38 PM] peternolan9: @all,
my opinion is that in the mens rights/fathers rights area you are well advised to kick out and fuckwit loser who slanders another man and any fuckwit loser who does not show due respect to men who have earned it.
Until you are willing to do that? These fuckwits poison everything they touch….kick them to the curn and tell them to go kill themselves in some mans rose garden and be fertiliser such that they are doing something useful….get rid if the liars, the slanderers, the men of no honour…they are of no value to anyone…they are worthless human scum who would make the world a better place by not being in it.
“Go and kill yourself.” This is the sort of thing you say to men who’ve had their rights violated and, frequently, their lives destroyed? Everyone who doesn’t do things exactly the way he wants them to is a fuckwit loser, demands for respect he really hasn’t earned and titanic rage at anyone who doesn’t give him exactly what he wants?
I think you probably get the point. The fact is that this article is just a smidgen of the vile hatred and bad advice this man trades in. He is not just angry, he is giving bad, dangerous advice that could land you in jail, and abusing anyone who questions his judgement. He wishes deaths on those who disagree with him. He is telling people who may or may not be emotionally unstable (he has no idea) that they should kill themselves. This is the ravings of a lunatic living on the fringe who spends his time attempting to turn himself into a pseudo-martyr.
Last year, Emily Shire attempted to put up the lunatic Nolan as a good example of our movement. Interestingly, even when we informed her that we repudiated Nolan and highly questionable behavior attributed to him, she issued no retraction or apologies. For the record we also think he offers dubious and legally dangerous advice; maybe you’ll have success with some of his recommended methods or services, but we are doubtful.
The MRM and specifically AVfM doesn’t need nor want so-called Men’s Rights advocates like Nolan. Those who deem it necessary to use individuals like him as a poster child of the men (and women) within the Men’s Human Rights Movement need to take notice: Nolan is NOT a Men’s Rights Activist. Actually, now that I think about it, I think Nolan would better fit within the feminist ranks. Right up there with the likes of Dworkin, Steinem, Marcotte and the rest of those hate-mongers.
For those readers inclined to slow down looking for the dead bodies in an auto accident may wish to check out the below links for more examples of Nolan’s madness. Me? I’ve had enough. I’m going to open up another cold one and just keep this article handy for the next time someone throws this guy up as an example of who we are and what we do. He ain’t, folks.
’nuff said for now I think!
