Conservative leadership candidate Maxime Bernier defended himself against accusations of misogyny late Monday night after posting a sci-fi-themed meme on Twitter which asks,”Will you choose the red pill?”
The “red pill” meme — a reference to a scene in the film The Matrix in which the protagonist learns he’s living in a simulation — has been exploited by alt-right sites and so-called ‘men’s rights’ activists, many of whom express noxious views about women online. The documentary The Red Pill follows a filmmaker’s experiences discovering the “polarizing Men’s Rights Movement.”
Thanks for the attention, toots! (BTW, seeing as it’s #InternationalWomensDay, while you’re up, mind fixing me a sandwich? Attagirl! 😉 )

As you can see, Mad Max hasn’t deleted his tweet yet, despite criticism from other Tory leadership candidates, and a Liberal strategist. Respect!
Nice to see some other folks amused at progs getting bent out of shape over this, too.
We control the Narrative now, prog and neo-cuck bitches! 🙂
