On The Rebel's Lauren Southern getting PO'd

To all progressive, feminist, anti-fascist and otherwise generally sane people who, for some reason, like to feed the trolls:

Stop feeding the trolls. Seriously.

First off, really? What possibly compels you to do such a thing? No winning argument ends with a bottle of urine dumped on someone's head. Grow up.

Second, and more importantly, all you accomplished aside from making Southern smell a bit off for a few days is help Ezra Levant pay his lackeys. The Rebel is going to fundraise off of this so hard, and you've guaranteed they'll send Southern out to do more confrontations like this in the hopes of more bodily fluids being thrown.

That's how they operate, they want to be seen as victims of the "regressive left" or whatever. The entire raison-d'étre of The Rebel is to propel forward the victimhood narrative for whites, men, the rich, and any other privileged group in the country - and throwing urine on one of its reporters is only helping them do so.

Listen, it's hard not to react to some one like Southern, who is aggressive and offensive but also well-versed in the subject matter. Everyone has that person who gets under your skin and you just want to lash out at - but, you know, we don't because we know it just helps their cause.

But you know how to get back at them? Just ignore them, seriously. Ignore Levant. Ignore Southern. Ignore the whole pack of Rebel trolls. Let them stew in their hate-filled world, it's of no concern if they wish to. They are so far outside of mainstream opinion and cater to such a niche and irrelevant audience that in a few years we'll wonder what happened to the site and these, uh, "wonderful" personalities.

Unless, of course, you propel them into the national media by pouring a bottle of piss over a reporter's head.

Leave the trolls under the bridge and be done. Or at least refuse to pay their toll, if you can't avoid confrontation altogether. There is no need to further pack The Rebel's coffers with stupid stunts.

  1. I don't agree with Lauren on there being only two genders, I support Transgender rights, but that no excuse to throw pee on her, which is sexual assualt as its a bodily fluid from someones gentials.

    And while I agree with you on Ezra, can't stand him and the rebel crew, but Lauren Southern is different. She has highlighted things like the male suicide epidemic, domestic violence against men which gets little to no support from government, and other important issues.

    And she's right about rape culture, not agreeing with that idea doesn't make her a Troll, it makes her someone who with a different opinion.

    If people don't agree fight back with facts and ideas, not pee based sex assualt.

    1. Well thought out answer! I support Ezra and his cause... but I see how people can disagree with his tactics. As far as Lauren goes... she is not trying "raise money" for the Rebel... she just loves a good debate!

  2. "who is aggressive and offensive but also well-versed in the subject matter" being well-versed on the subject matter means she's not a Troll. I've tried to debate with Trolls, they're never well-versed,they always rely on insults, like calling the people "the loonie left", calling everyone on the left communists or marxists, or relying on circular arguements or even straight up insults even threats. So calling Lauren a troll is unfair.

    1. You can be a well-versed troll - but allow me some leeway with my writing, it's a specific audience I'm trying to reach.
