    Salon: men are punching random women in NYC because "MAGA"

    Apparently, New York City is the real "MAGA country".

    Men punching random women in NYC: A desperate last gasp of the male rage fueling MAGA
    Random NYC attacks are an extreme manifestation of men feeling entitled to women's time and attention
    https://www.salon.com/2024/04/08/men...-fueling-maga/
    {Amanda Marcotte | 08 April 2024}

    Men are punching random women on the streets of New York City. As usual with these kinds of diffuse and chaotic stories, there's much that is unknown, including how often this is happening, how many people are involved, or whether it's at all coordinated. But what we do know is already alarming. CNN reports that dozens of women have discussed being victims on social media, and formally interviewed six of them. NBC News reports there have been at least 3 arrests. CBS News reports that NYPD released images last week of a fourth man wanted for allegedly punching a woman in Union Square. Even reality TV star Bethany Frankel says she's been victimized.

    Women report being assaulted by men of different races and ages. Still, across the different stories, a couple of similarities pop out: The alleged victims are mostly young and pretty, and most of them say they were minding their own business when they were attacked. Some were on their phones or reading on tablets. Others were speaking to friends or daydreaming. Whatever they were doing, they were just living their lives, and that, it seems, is what enraged their assailants.

    Whatever the scale of this problem eventually turns out to be, it's not surprising that these stories have gone viral and captured the public's imagination. While it rarely turns to violence, most women who spend much time walking around in public have experience with men who berate them for paying attention to something other than the man who is now, often out of nowhere, spewing invectives. In our modern era, that often manifests with men who are infuriated at women for looking at their phones. But I'm old enough to remember when I would get yelled at for reading books in public.

    Whatever the excuse the angry man concocts, the impetus is always the same: The eyes of a woman are directed at someone or something that is not him, and he is indignant over it. So he will make sure she has no choice but to look at him, either by getting in her face or — in these alarming New York cases — punching her. If he cannot capture her adoring gaze, well, he will make her stare at him in fear.

    These stories resonate, as well, because the nation is having a moment of increasingly unhinged male fury at women for daring to have lives that are centered around something other than catering to a man's every whim. Unleashed by Donald Trump and the MAGA movement, there's an upswell of loud male entitlement shouting at us from every corner.

    We see it in the male fans of Jordan Peterson, who clamor to his events to hear him croak out a just-so story about how lobsters justify their faith in male dominance. Or the rise of "tradwives" online who make a living pretending they're unemployed and housebound. Or Ben Shapiro setting fire to a Barbie doll because he can't stand that a blockbuster comedy starring a woman is about anything but her quest for male affection. Or MAGA pundits telling lies about birth control, in hopes of tricking women into having babies before they're ready. Or conservatives writing op-eds that blame women for male loneliness, telling women they must self-sacrifice to relieve male pain by marrying Donald Trump voters. Or right-wing men yelling because Taylor Swift has cats or because she dates a hunky, vaccinated NFL player instead of, I dunno, having babies with a guy in ill-fitting cargo shorts.

    The word "backlash," in reference to the famous Susan Faludi book that chronicled the dramatic recession of women's rights and status in the 80s, which erased much of what was gained by the second wave of feminism, gets thrown around a lot. And these things indeed tend to be cyclical. The late 90s/early 2000s was another backlash period, as the rise of Limp Bizkit, George W. Bush, and trucker caps eclipsed the relatively feminist mid-90s.

    But there's one big difference between the male tantrum we're experiencing now and the backlashes of old: This time, women aren't really playing along. A few, maybe, especially if they can get a piece of that sweet "tradwife" income. But, in the past, backlashes tended to draw large numbers of women along, or at least convince them to silence their opinions, lest they be labeled a "man-hater." In the more conservative parts of the country in the early 2000s, it manifested as widespread shaming of women for having sex before marriage, from abstinence-only "education" to purity rings. But it wasn't great in more liberal areas, where women put up with hipster sexism to get the prize of being called a "cool girl."

    Now, there just seems to be much less interest among women in placating men by silencing ourselves or "compromising" on basic rights. All the male bellyaching about "Barbie" and Taylor Swift did nothing to dent ticket sales. Roe v. Wade was overturned and instead of scaling back our claims to our own bodies, women revolted, organizing ballot initiatives around the country to protect abortion rights. Polls show that while young men might be backing Trump in large numbers, young women have not been browbeaten out of voting for Democrats. Just last week, a women's college basketball game between LSU and Iowa became the highest-rated college basketball game in ESPN history.

    The rise of MAGA is fueled by misogyny. But it's less a backlash than a tantrum, a rage explosion by men who want to restore their dominance but fear that, this time, women won't buckle to their bullying. This rash of men punching women in New York City captures this moment in a dark way. We don't even need to know their names or faces to know that men who do this are losers, lashing out because they've learned that actually, women don't owe them anything just because they're men. It's also true that women aren't just suffering in silence, but telling their stories without shame or self-blame. There's something nakedly pathetic about punching women, as scary as it is for the victims. It's not like the cat-calling or groping of old, which disguised male aggression as a mere over-exuberance of lust. This is a last gasp of men who, unable to justify their sexism in any way, must resort to brute force. Yet even then, they're unable to shut women up.

    "Random" attacks skyrocket in NYC, but why all women?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiqSmnjJGdY&t=334s
    {Decoy Voice | 28 March 2024}

    New York City, NY is continuing to fall into lawlessness. But now on TikTok several women are finding out that they have all been recently randomly attacked in the street. Some of them by the same person, but some of them from just similar people. How did NYC get this bad?



    NYC attacker arrested, but it gets worse

    The tiktok accounts that recently went viral over being randomly attacked in New York City, NY have apparently led to the arrest of at least one of them. But somehow it gets worse than we thought.

    FFS, these Marxists are relentless and diabolical.

    As usual, this article is propaganda meant to create division and hate. The classic men vs. woman (as victim) angle they have used forever. Just like abortion, it is another manifestation of driving a wedge and demonizing (mostly white) men as oppressors, leaving everyone else as a victim (ripe for the Marxist/Democrat savior).

    Of course decades of “the knock-out game” never warranted an article from them. And like the “Asian hate” epidemic they were recently pushing, always implying that it is white men, the majority of the crimes are committed by black males, many of them mental patients on the streets. To which they would no doubt respond: “Ha, we got you now! You are blaming black men, proving you are a MAGA racist!”

    Sorry, your traps, set-ups, false accusations, and Marxist agenda are all exposed now. Amanda Marcotte is a pathetic, despicable, immoral joke.

    Its rather not surprising how " Marcotte" tries to defend some of the attackers who were largely African/Black Americans defending by stating..

    Women report being assaulted by men of different races and ages. Still, across the different stories, a couple of similarities pop out: The alleged victims are mostly young and pretty, and most of them say they were minding their own business when they were attacked.

    The only reason that the Knock Out game is now getting air time is because one of the victims is an Elite.

    And no, the perps are definitely not "MAGA" lol

    And by women too I'm sure. It's not just men hitting people for no reason; I'm sure there's at least a few women who have done it, just as I'm sure there's at least a few white people who have done it.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Notice the lack of link to this supposed "fact".

    That's because it is not.

    The vast bulk of these attacks are carried out by blacks.

    The vast bulk of of the victims are young white women.

    Young white women who support BLM, who demand men emasculate themselves, who are happy men like Dan Penny are prosecuted.

    You have the world you wanted...what are you bitching about?

    The Author basically defended the attacker with that line and mostly because the author of the article knows the attackers are they even white to begin with?

    Pretty sure it's leftists that are perpetrating these attacks. I don't think most people that are on the MAGA train would commit these acts of violence.

    You know, that Salon "article" deserves some kind of award. Those illegal "immigrants" of color in New York City are cold-cocking white women because they're nationalist white supremacists who figure that's how to make America great again.

    The Doublespeak Prize Prize?

    We should Believe Them When They Tell Us, though, I suppose. Every time some woman gets punched on the street, somebody somewhere vows to vote for Trump. Whether these psychos have any clue of the fact or not, that is why they were brought here. That is their role in the psyop.

    Anyone who thinks, "They thought they could arrange it so Americans never saw any of these things," is just silly. These are aimed at us, and designed to piss us off. Just like headlines that say ridiculous things like, "These tools imported with instructions in their pockets instructing them to vote Biden are MAGA," aren't aimed at Salon readers. They're designed to piss us off. Nobody who isn't pissed off by headlines that stupid could ever possibly take them seriously.
