The media and others claim we are a marginal movement, and indeed they go to a lot of trouble to make it seem that way. They make it look like we are outnumbered by refusing to give us a platform. Yet I’ve known for a long time that we outnumber the lunatic SJWs, and now I have proof.
Con woman Anita Sarkeesian is crowd funding a documentary series called, “Ordinary Women.” Because the media loves her, nearly every mainstream media publication has linked to or written about her new video series.
USA Today, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Time, and the list goes on.
With international news cover behind her, Anita has raised $42,423. That’s great, until you compare it to our project.
My Kickstarter for a feature lengthy documentary on free speech has surpassed Sarkeesian’s project.
UPDATE: We raised over $71,000 with 838 backers.
Granted, Sarkessian’s project hasn’t hit its funding deadline, and it’s likely she’ll out fund me, and that’s my point.
Every mainstream outlet has written about Sarkeesian and her project. How much more money will she raise? 2x? Maybe 4x? Given the amount of press she’s received, she should easily raise 100x more than us. But she won’t.
What do I have? A blog, some friends with blogs, and a Twitter. This one-man operation is able to out work and out raise the entire mainstream media.
Isn’t that amazing?
Even without the supposed reach of the mainstream media, we are killing it.
I remain optimistic about the future of the West because I look at the data and understand the media game.
The people are on our side. Our job is to reach them.
My mantra for 2016 has been, “Outreach, Outreach, Outreach.”
Why do I write more about mainstream news? It doesn’t sell books. My original reporting and analysis is part of our outreach.
It’s working, too.

Silenced isn’t going to make me real money, but it will get the message out to millions of people.
Whenever I meet a group of people to share our ideas with, at least one of them agrees with me and becomes a Twitter follower or reader.
The media knows this, and that’s why they fight hard to censor us. The numbers aren’t on their side.
If you follow the mainstream news, you think you’re alone. That’s a deliberate media lie.
P.S. You only have one day left to back Silenced. You can do so here.
