Men’s Rights Activist: Feminism is a Billion Dollar Hate Industry and Now They are Sending Us Death Threats

Men’s rights activists demand feminists are behind an attempt to stop a men’s conference in Detroit.

The International Conference on Men’s Issues, with help of blogger Dean Esmay, recently launched a crowd-funding campaign featuring a female anti-feminist to raise an additional $25,000 for the two-day event to be held this month – money the group says it needs to keep angry feminists away.

According to Paul Elam, founder and publisher of A Voice for Men, the organization hosting the event, the hotel venue sent the group a certified letter demanding the group pay for round-the-clock security after it received threats against the hotel and the guests.

“We have received numerous calls and threats and are concerned for the safety and well-being of our employees, our guests, and your attendees,” the letter read. “The threats have escalated to include death threats, physical violence against our staff and other guests, as well as damage to the property.”

While the letter does not name any particular group as responsible for the menacing threats, Esmay said it is clear who is to blame.

“We’ve had ongoing problems with the feminist establishment, which is a multibillion-dollar hate industry, for years,” Esmay said.

He also said that the feminist groups have tried hard for years to turn people against their pro-men campaign and make people think that they were really just chauvinistic pigs, adding that there is a lot of funding at stake by making domestic abuse and other services seem worse than it really is.

“A false narrative has been created to make us look like a threat, and this has been going on for 40 years,” Esmay continued.

Esmay also said he has tried to talk to these women and protesters but they can’t be bothered to listen to the man’s side of the story.

“We have multiples times offered to contact protesters and talk, invited them to peacefully protest and attend, you know, and find out that we’re human,” Esmay stressed. “But all they’ll tell me is they won’t talk to terrorists or make fun of me or just ignore me.”

Despite the threats, the group also said the conference will go on as planned, and it has already received more than $25,000 to cover the extra security needed.
