The Use of Provocateurs
The big question in everybody's mind is whether there will be a replay of the violent feminist action that occurred during Warren Farrell's visit. We are guessing that they will try to play it cool this time, or at least cooler. We figure they will have a protest, a show of force, a bit of vociferation -- but will not attempt to block the doors. They gave themselves such a black eye last time, by their behavior, that they are likely to have learned their lesson -- at least temporarily.
Naturally, our people will be there -- and there are more and more of "our people" popping up these days. We are becoming surprisingly numerous. And so, video capture devices will be plentiful. Our very own Daniel Perrins of Hamilton, Ontario, certainly intends to have one. He is well-prepared. And he plans to conduct interviews with with some interesting people.
All right, there is a very real possibility that the feminists will plant an agent provocateur, or three, at the event. The said Daniel Perrins and myself hashed this over a bit.
We see two possibilities.First, that some little waif of a female college student will smack some alleged "MRA" across the face hoping to "provoke an incident" that will serve as spin fodder. Second, that some male feminist provocateur will pose as a pro-male activist, behave dreadfully, and likewise serve as spin fodder.
There could be other scenarios, but those two occur to us at the moment. We operate now under the maxim of "foretold is disinculpated", meaning that if an episode such as I've described should actually take place, we can say "look, that's exactly the kind of thing we were talking about! We put the world on notice that it might happen, and behold, it did happen. Therefore, we wash our hands of it. THEY did it!"
Do you see what I'm driving at?
We are dealing with irrational people of dubious morality, people who think with their lizard hindbrains and feel that the end justifies the means. We ought to know what these people are capable of, and we ought to make what we know generally known, so that our knowledge will occupy a niche in the public understanding. In this way, the world at large will see eye-to-eye with us at every turn of events -- knowing as we know, thinking as we think, and therefore believing us rather than believing our enemy.
In the end, it's as simple as saying, "this is how these people operate." And when they indeed so operate, saying "we told you they would do that!" Yes, we are moving into the big time now, and we must expect the enemy to play hardball. And when they do, we should be ready to field anything they throw at us.
