Fox News reported on Monday that feminists could be waging a “war on men” after attendees of a men’s rights conference in Detroit were accused of hate speech.
At what was advertised as the first International Men’s Rights Conference in Detroit last week, A Voice For Men founder Paul Elam called for feminism to be defeated.
And National Post columnist Barbara Kay told the men that the “vast majority of female students allegedly raped on campus are actually voicing buyer’s remorse from alcohol-fueled promiscuous behavior involving murky lines of consent on both sides.”
After a group of feminists showed up to protest the event, Fox News host Steve Doocy asked on Monday, “Who are the one’s being intolerant?”
“Does the intolerance show there’s really a feminist war on men?” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck suggested.
Democratic strategist Zerlina Maxwell pointed out that the Southern Poverty Law Center had classified many of the men’s rights websites has hate speech.
“I think that it’s important not to scapegoat feminism and say feminism is to blame for many of the legitimate concerns that A Voice for Men and other MRA groups raise, like child custody and the court system being unfair to men,” Maxwell explained. “But I think largely they are scapegoating feminism instead of looking at the real core of the problem, which is that traditional gender roles have made it so that men are more actively engaged in child rearing, and the court system needs to catch up to that reality.”
Hasselbeck, however, said that “some would argue… that feminism is actually the cause of men having less rights in the courtroom as it pertains to violence against them.”
Maxwell insisted that feminists were willing to listen to the concerns of men’s rights groups, but they should not tolerate hate speech.
“For example, the founder of A Voice for Men has said women are begging to be raped if they go out and drink and flirt, then they’re asking for it,” she noted. “That, I have a problem with.”

GOP lawmaker hammered on CNN for ‘idiotic’ claim the economy is too healthy for a new stimulus
On CNN Saturday, financial columnist Michelle Singletary ripped Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) for claiming that the economy may be too good right now for another round of stimulus.
"I want to read to you what Senator Bill Cassidy, Republican of Louisiana, said regarding the potential stimulus," said co-anchor Christi Paul. "He said if it turns out the economy is recovering, that's a good thing and direct stimulus checks may not be necessary. Do you get the sense that the economy is recovering? And that these check wills not be needed?"
Trump’s Mt Rushmore speech trashed on CNN for being nonsense straight out of the ‘Hannity universe’
On CNN Saturday, reporter Brian Stelter tore into President Donald Trump's Mount Rushmore speech.
"The president had a chance to deliver one of these unifying messages, especially ahead of Independence Day, but instead he chose to go on the attack," said anchor Christi Paul. "Do you think that was the right strategy and why?"
"It sounded like a Stephen Miller speech," said Stelter. "And that is something that appeals to the parts of the president's base that he really focuses on. This is wartime conservativism [sic], this belief that conservatives are at war trying to protect the country from change."
