Home Violence – Men in Firing Line — A STUDY of patients attending family doctors has found that 52 per cent of men and 43 per cent of women have experienced domestic violence.
The research, carried out by Trinity College Dublin and published in the European Journal of General Practice, reflects the findings of all other two-sex studies carried out in Ireland….

Of course, we all knew that all along, and it was one of the primary motivating factors for setting up the website of Fathers for Life. However, if you didn’t know that and wish to find more information, with references to numerous studies – some of which date back decades, then check the index page for Family Violence at Fathers for Life.
Many will ask how that can be, given that we spend so much on combatting violence against women. Well, that is a complicated story that has been addressed in this collection of articles, “How did the Popular Views on Domestic Violence come about?“.
Most of all it is the outcome of a sustained, decades-long propaganda campaign against the largest visible minority in the world: Men. It was easy to launch and became a rout, all because propaganda no longer is an art, as it was during and before the second world war, but it is now an applied science.
The principle for success of propaganda is simple and very effective:
The function of propaganda does not lie in the scientific training of the individual, but in calling the masses’ attention to certain facts, processes, necessities, etc., whose significance is thus for the first time placed within their field of vision. …
All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to. Consequently, the greater the mass it is intended to reach, the lower its purely intellectual level will have to be. But if, as in propaganda for sticking out a war, the aim is to influence a whole people, we must avoid excessive intellectual demands on our public, and too much caution cannot be extended in this direction. …
The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan….
The function of propaganda is, for example, not to weigh and ponder the rights of different people, but exclusively to emphasize the one right which it has set out to argue for. Its task is not to make an objective study of the truth, in so far as it favors the enemy, and then set it before the masses with academic fairness; its task is to serve our own right, always and unflinchingly.
Hitler, Mein Kampf, Chapter VI
Let’s hope that we all learn from that and that we always keep it in mind. To make the point clear, I will paraphrase it here:
The aim of propaganda is not to make an objective study of the truth, in so far as that favors the enemy (men that is), and then set it before the masses with academic fairness; its task is to serve our own right (the interests of the radical feminists), always and unflinchingly.
Josef Goebbels, the Minister of Education (a.k.a. Minister of Propaganda) in the Nazi regime paraphrased Hitler by stating:
The rank and file is usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious. The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly… it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.
And the fundamental point of the redfems’ propaganda is: Women are good and men are bad. That is all it took. That is all it takes. Just watch TV, you’ll see it day-in, day-out, hour after hour, in the programs, in commercials and in public service anouncements, without end: “Women good! Men bad!” without flinching and over and over.
It works, doesn’t it? Why knock it, right? Who cares about the truth as long as money can be made?!
