The incel, nazi paedo running for Congress

Postby mothra » 06 Jun 2018, 15:36

Nathan Larson, the self-described incel paedophile, is running for Congress. This is how he groomed vulnerable young men
Young men turn to forums for support and find themselves radicalised by misogynist extremists, advocating for the sexual enslavement of women

The corruption of what used to be a support movement into a hate group means that young lonely men seeking a community are at risk of misogynistic radicalisation and recruitment into communities that glorify rape and paedophilia. In order to understand how this is happening, you need to understand Nathan Larson.

It’s 2018, which means it’s unsurprising that a self-described white supremacist and paedophile is running for Congress in Virginia. Nathan Larson wants to legalise child pornography and incestuous marriage, and repeal the Violence Against Women Act so that women can be classified “as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands”. He also established a number of forums on which he posted under the pseudonyms “Lysander” and “Leucosticte”, advocating for the rape of women and graphically describing child pornography.

Larson was recruiting from the incel community, which was brought to prominence following an incident earlier this year in which one of their number is alleged to have driven a van along a pavement in Toronto, killing 10 people and wounding more than a dozen others.

Incel, which stands for “involuntarily celibate”, is nominally a label adopted by men who want to have sex or a relationship but are unable to find one, but in practice it describes a set of toxic communities in which lonely, vulnerable young men who need support find nothing but misogyny, self-loathing and nihilism.

A typical post on an incel community sees users attributing their misfortune to inalterable aspects of appearance. Any attempts at self-improvement are mocked as “copes”.

The websites Larson created have been taken down after a campaign from the activist group r/IncelTears and Babe.net, but Larson is already looking for alternative hosting. As with the white supremacist sites Stormfront and Daily Stormer, it’s likely he’ll be able to acquire it, even if it is on the dark web. He’s found no shortage of support from forums like incels.me, the main incel community since they were banned from reddit in November last year for inciting violence.

While the story of an admitted paedophile running for Congress might seem warped enough, the bigger issue here is this. Young men turning to forums for support and finding themselves radicalised into misogynist extremists, advocating for the sexual enslavement of women. But moreover, men like Larson (who is not involuntarily celibate by any stretch of the imagination, given that he has been married twice and has a daughter who is out of his custody) make accounts on these forums specifically in order to recruit people they think will be sympathetic to their cause. In the words of one reddit user, “the incelocalypse owner is only part of the incel community because he sees it as a place where being a child molester isn’t considered a non-starter. It’s a great recruitment spot for him.”

Unfortunately, they’re right. Incel forums, which began as support groups in the late 1990s, now ubiquitously accept the concept of the “blackpill”, which says that a man’s life chances are fundamentally determined by his attractiveness, and nothing they can do will change their fate. The only options left to them, then, are living in misery or taking violent action against themselves and others. They feel wronged by the world and they blame women, whom they hold responsible for not giving them the affection they believe they are entitled to.

wow, I've been trying to come to terms with what these poor kids r believing about themselves and just want to give them a hug .
It sounds very close to anorexia
The image of themselves I mean and thinking they r not good enough.
Have to ponder this awhile....

The cretin going for parliament just needs to be locked up though.

It's absolutely heartbreaking, isn't it.

But you reminded me of what Tim Winton said the other day about boys and young men, and how he just wanted to give them a hug. Really touched me.

You know that's one of the solutions, right? There should be a great many more hugs from older, patient, wiser men. I want my son hugged, not hit ... and hugging and hugging rather than hitting.

I think i started a thread on the article i read it in. I'll look for it and give you the link.

edit: Here's the link Don. Very insightful article.

More to the point, they will vote for him because of it.
