For the first time, SPLC adds 2 male supremacy groups to the hate group list

The year in hate:


Also, for the first time, the SPLC added two male supremacy groups to the hate group list: A Voice for Men, based in Houston, and Return of Kings, based in Washington, D.C. The vilification of women by these groups makes them no different than other groups that demean entire populations, such as the LGBT community, Muslims or Jews, based on their inherent characteristics.

6. Are they making a reference to Tolkien?

"The Return of the King"?

And yes, Kudos to SPLC.

Not a Tolkien reference. Their usage of the phrase is tied to the desire that men (Kings) should once again (i.e., 'Return' to) have absolute dominion over females in all aspects. It's a common theme during his self-described 'hetero-tribal meetings.'

When I began listening to the Hof and other feminist voices a few years ago, some posters sent me a link to his blog, and I spent a month there one afternoon reading his... opinions. Somewhere on that blog (and I recall this specifically because I'm a bit of a Lord of the Rings fan) he wrote about being frustrated that a lot of people thought he was referencing Tolkien's work whose writing he thought, were partially to blame for the west becoming effeminate.

"Legalize rape so less women will be raped." Yeah. He actually said that.

3. So glad we have SPLC. The US gov/politicians can't issue this, the GOP, because many are complicit

and/or compliant.
