If humans were rational, Glenn Greenwald and other men on the left would have a come to Jesus meeting with the media. “You are lying about us,” they would say, “and now we must wonder if you’re lying about other men.” But since men are not rational, enjoy this case study in journalistic cognitive dissonance.
Bernie Sanders supporters are just like me!
The establishment media wants Hillary Clinton to win the election, and because of this they’ve begun lying about Bernie Sanders’ supporters. Dubbed “BernieBros,” there are male Bernie Sanders supporters who are out of control. They are acting like I do online!
The problem is that there is no such thing as a BernieBro. It’s a made-up story.

The media made up BernieBros based on two sock-puppet accounts. The media then begins its circle jerk of citing other media outlets, thus turning two troll accounts into a worldwide phenomena.
This is how the “news” gets made.
Should BernieBros wake Glenn Greenwald and other men of the left up?
Hey, maybe the media has lied about GamerGate and other “harassment” stories?
Could it be that many of the women who are central figures of GamerGate are themselves notorious trolls who have been caught using sock puppet accounts to threaten themselves?
The media is totally lying about #BernieBros, but the media would never lie about anything else.
Maybe people like me troll the media because, hey, why bother being nice? If Bernie Sanders supporters are going to be called misogynistic pigs, why bother even keeping up with the latest trends in PC culture? Go Full Gorilla.
Indeed, SJWs have even accused a radical liberal like Greenwald of being part of GamerGate.
Like everyone else, Greenwald and other liberal men have cognitive dissonance.
“Even though the media is lying about them, there is no way the media is lying about me. Impossible.”
Incidentally, a wannabe journalist let Greenwald know that talking to me on Twitter was a terrible idea.

Only men harass women online.
Today my Twitter mentions are full of women asking about my masturbatory practices.

I am regularly asked about my sex life.

Greenwald of course would say that because I’m a straight white man, my privilege makes it impossible for me to be harassed.
Cognitive dissonance always wins.
In truth, I find the obsession SJWs have with me to be proof that what I write is the truth. Study it.
When is the last time women sexually harassed a Bernie Sanders supporter?
Men on the left, if they were rational, would be quick to grab my books to understand how I am able to drive women crazy.
Cognitive dissonance will prevent them from doing so.
Women say they hate me, so that must be true.
(Forget about how many feminist I’ve been with. Ignore the many feminists who often write about my sex life. Forget that you are in the friend zone.)
Life is more fun when you stop expecting people to examine evidence before reaching a rational conclusion.
