Bless The Observer for finding this trifle. It’s so stereotypical of the “thinking” in women-dominated cultures — and I include in that group all the sissy men whose nightmares are stalked by the gruesome vagina dentata. In other words, the kinds of men who write this kind of drivel. Or was it written by a woman?
Regardless of the author’s gender, this is simply one more example of mainstream media’s ongoing attempt to replace reality with their own handy “narrative” — and their narrative is ugly indeed. Ugly and mean-spirited, just like all the other smears the Left extrudes from its sausage-making machine and slings at its enemies.
Here’s the deal: according to this “research” our readers are mostly men. Lonely men. Lonely old men. Lonely old men who are ignorant, poorly educated and marginalized by society. They are childless to boot, don’tcha know.
According to the sources they reference, this profile of Counterjihad readers was gleaned by studying the statistics on Alexa. Hmmm… Here’s Alexa’s wiki — do you see any demographic information there? Me neither.
And here’s Alexa itself. I haven’t looked at it in several years but last time I visited, I saw no demographic information. But these Communists, they read tea leaves, so maybe they have the inside track on this voodoo.
Here is The Observer’s translation of the article from today’s VG supporting this thesis. The translator includes this note:
It turns out that the overwhelming majority of GoV visitors are lonely men over 65 with no or very little education. Oh, yes, and they also feel marginalised and ignored by society.Here’s the translated article:
Don’t believe me? Take a look at this article, and everything will be explained to you!
Does this mean VG is guilty of ‘Seniorphobia’? I hear the disease is on the rise among the elites...
Men are overrepresented on Islam-hostile websites
Single, childless men over 65 years, with little or no education are overrepresented on Islam hostile websites, according to a survey done by Klassekampen [“Class Struggle” — a Norwegian communist newspaper].
Klassekampen has used the internet analysis tool Alexa to examine eight Islam hostile websites including Gates of Vienna, Jihad Watch, The Brussels Journal, Islam Watch and Atlas Shrugged [sic].
According to data that Klassekampen has looked at the age group of the visitors to these sites range from 65 years and above. Men are clearly over-represented and most of them don’t have an education beyond primary school. Few have children, and those who visit these sites do so from their own homes and not from work or school.
The data correspond well with membership groups of various extreme right-wing parties in Europe, the journalist and author of “The hatred against Muslims” Andreas Malm says.
“There is an overwhelming majority of older men, often unemployed who may feel ostracized from society and who are looking for explanations and scapegoats,” he says.
“The archetypal conspiracy theorist is an elderly lonely man who becomes obsessed with a particular question and who may be drawn towards Islam-hostile conspiracy theories,” Malm says.
He is supported by editor of the periodical Vepsen, Tor Bach. This group of elderly people shares some common traits, he says.
“They are characterized by a strong distrust of society and democratic principles. They also sincerely believe that someone is out to harm them,” Bach says. He doesn’t wish to generalize too much, but he basically believes that this group consists of angry and frustrated individuals who feel marginalized when their views are ignored.
After we finished ROFLOAO, the Baron had an intriguing hypothesis — and it certainly has as much basis in reality as this “news” “report” does. He suggests: Could it be that testosterone poisoning accounts for the behavior of those who are drawn to Islamophobic websites such as this one?
Ah, memories! Back in the days when I worked with battered women, a few of the staff referred to men in general as suffering from this overload of male hormones. I remember one incident in which I finally protested the continuing absurdity. Most of the time I let it pass, since you can’t argue an ideologue out of a belief she needs in order to maintain her world-view. However, the rant was particularly tiresome that day and I protested on the behalf of all the good men I knew. In response, I was told I didn’t really like men. When I gaped at that one, I was told my hatred of men was unconscious, thus my ignorance.
Glory be…how do you answer one of those double binds the Left uses to batter those whose views don’t align with their Magic Pony thinking? For me, a rowdy Irish woman who likes blonde jokes, this contention was a gob-smacker. So after work that day I asked the Baron if he thought I hated men. Once he’d stopped laughing, he told me his best guess as to the origin of this slur on my character (i.e., possible projection) and added, “Hey, now that I think of it… when we first met my initial opinion was that you liked men too much.” Heh.
[By the way, the woman who most often used to attack me for my view of men later divorced her husband and married a woman — thus proving the Baron’s thesis about projection.]
Oh, sure. Sounds good to me. About as accurate as anything else I’ve seen coming out of Norway recently.
