I very rarely disagree with Paul Elam openly. This is because he gets lots of “criticism” that’s baseless and all around silly nonsense that boils down to “Paul Elam is a godless commie or leftist”, “Paul Elam is a male version of a feminist”, “Paul Elam isn’t doing things my way or making the M(H)RM all about my pet issue”, “AVFM is insufficiently ‘Christian’ or ‘libertarian'”, “Paul Elam hates the white race”, or “Paul Elam and his terminology doesn’t follow my obscure philosophy”. Adding my own disagreements, while minor, just creates an atmosphere of “see everyone hates Paul Elam”. Also, Paul Elam (& AVFM) are in the trenches actually doing something a lot more than any of us. They have a better idea of what would work to advance the M(H)RM from that alone than I ever could.
That being said, I agree with what rmaxgenactivepua said in his response to the most recent Entitlement Princess of the Month:
She also happens to be a former AVFM’er, proving AVFM needs to vet the women more stringently
Yes, AVFM needs to vet women (and men) joining it more stringently, because entryism is going to be an increasing problem. (Entryism is when a group infiltrates another group, usually larger, in an attempt to expand their political or ideological base.) We have already seen attempts at entryism in the M(H)RM from groups like the tradcons and the white (knight) nationalists. In the game world, Susan Walsh was an entryist trying to create a “Game 2.0”. (In fact, WBB is basically the Susan Walsh of the M(H)RM.) As the M(H)RM expands in numbers and gets closer to the mainstream, the entryists will get more numerous and more sophisticated. They will do a better job maintaining a pretense of supporting the M(H)RM than the tradcons or the white (knight) nationalists ever did.
How do we identify entryists in the M(H)RM? We can’t assume that only women will be entryists. Even though a woman is more likely to be an entryist than a man, both men and women can be entryists. As time goes on there will be more entryists. For now at least, the way to identify entryists like WBB is to find out their opinion on MGTOW. Since MGTOW isn’t a movement of any kind, entryist tactics won’t work on it. Thus, sooner or later an entryist will express their disgust and revulsion for MGTOW and will try to separate the M(H)RM from the MGTOW because MGTOW is a threat to what they’re trying to do. If someone in the M(H)RM isn’t at least willing to leave MGTOW alone, then they’re definitely an entryist.
