Liberals sick of the alt-left are taking 'the red pill'

Liberals sick of the alt-left are taking 'the red pill'









Quote:
The left’s intensifying war on free speech has produced a surge of red pill videos.










Quote:
Red pill bloggers are increasingly characterizing PC culture as a first step on a slippery slope towards authoritarian socialism.










Quote:
The term “taking the red pill” derives from the movie "The Matrix," the trippy sci-fi classic. Morpheus, the resistance leader played by Laurence Fishburne offers Neo, the movie’s hero played by Keanu Reeves, a choice: He can take the blue pill and remain in the repressive artificial world known as the Matrix where “you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.” Or he can take the red pill and tumble down the “rabbit hole” where he will come to realize that everything about his life was a lie.











Quote:
A red pill blogger who calls himself “Pat Riarchy” (“also known as the patriarchy”) recalls that his journey down the rabbit hole began when a Facebook friend derisively called him a “cis male.” He came to recognize that, “it's been one narrative pretty much.” He concluded, “I have my own objective view…I didn't want a bigger government. I realized I didn't like the universal healthcare plan…I realized I didn't really have an issue with guns.” Several books and discussions later, he emerged as a libertarian.










Dave Rubin, author of The Rubin Report wrote:
if you're a true individual—meaning you don't subscribe to the ideas that the groupthink has attributed to you based on those immutable characteristics—you must be cast out.”
