I just had the pleasure of a skype conversation with the one and only Agent Orange. I felt compelled to speak with AO after discovering that the pro-violence bigots at Radfem Hub were just dealt a significant blow, courtesy in part of the Agent Orange Files.
Conway Hall, a London convention center and speaking venue where the Radfem group was scheduled to have an upcoming “conference,” issued a statement explaining why the Radfem group is now banned from that venue.
“We had sought assurances that the organizers would allow access to all, in order to enable the event to proceed at the venue. We also expressed concern that particular speakers would need to be made aware that whilst welcoming progressive thinking and debate, Conway Hall seeks to uphold inclusivity in respect of both legal obligations and as a principle.”
The language is polite, but the message is clear. They don’t want to do business with a bunch of bigots.
AO sent them selections from the Agent Orange Files a week ago. Those files have also been making the rounds in the transgendered community recently (also via AO), and have spawned a great deal of protest from there.
This was not just about their exclusion of transgender people, though, and they are being lambasted for it across the board. In addition to being exposed by activists on the MRM side, an increasing amount of heat is coming from other directions.
Even feminists at the wildly liberal Democratic Underground have also scrutinized this group of violent bigots and is raising their voice in objection.
One feminist that goes by Catherina there had a message for them:
Everyone, regardless of gender, regardless of identity, is quickly realising that your odious views have no place within our future.
This series of events raises several matters of much significance. One, the fact that these goons have been denied a venue makes it much easier to make sure they are denied other venues. We now have precedent that we can refer to repeatedly that shows a clear mainstream rejection of their bigoted agenda. I don’t think it helps the SPLC either that they are publicly supporting and accepting money from an organization so rife with bigotry that they cannot even muster the credibility to pay for a venue in a liberal environment. Just saying.
We also gain from feminists being forced to go after each other publicly. Who cares if feminists at Democratic Underground don’t get that they are just as culpable as the Radfems? I don’t. I am happy to use their rhetoric against the slightly more extreme versions of typical feminists, and then to use it again on the “less” extreme when appropriate.
But here is the kicker. Radfem has already announced that they are going to carry on with their conference at “an alternative venue.”
Uh, don’t bet the farm on it.
We now have Conway Hall on public record as rejecting Radfem for their bigotry and exclusionary policies. And we have the AO files. And now we have pressure building against them from the transgendered community.
We are going on the attack wherever they go, and we are going to do it FTSU style. So I suggest this group of “wimmen born wimmen” better start looking for private property on which to utter their hateful incantations and burn their crosses, because wherever they go in the public realm we are going to follow up with immediate action to get them booted, just as they were from Conway Hall.
Score one for the team. We are going to marginalize this group of fucking psychos completely out of existence.
In case you have spent the last 8 months under a huge block of granite, here is Robert O’Hara’s devastating exposé, which tells you exactly who the Radfem’s are.
