I’m sure we’ll be disappointed in the end, but as it stands now, every young conservative guy is looking forward to Joker, and exactly zero females care. It’s one of those movies that seems like it embodies the spirit of our time, like a sign pointing out this feeling we have that something big is about to happen. The excitement we feel surrounding this movie is probably similar to the way a normie feels about Nintendo or Game of Thrones. Conservative males who are keeping an eye on the decline of civilization finally feel as if the Bluepill Factory that is Hollywood accidentally made something interesting.
But why is it only men who care? And even then, why only a certain kind of man?
Men are dropping out of society. They’re committing suicide at record rates, they’re getting hooked on pain-killers, divorce rates are through the roof, the manual labor jobs are either going overseas or being taken by robots or undocumented aliens, college is no longer job training but advanced indoctrination, and yet mainstream media agrees that men are toxic, problematic, trolls, literal Nazis, or perhaps even worse liberal buzzwords. In fact, if a man complains about this situation, or even expresses some reservations about throwing away civilization in general, he risks losing his job. Who wants to employ a Nazi, right?
From this perspective, a movie about a man who isn’t an alpha, but a regular guy beaten down by a world gone mad until he cracks and becomes something terrifying, is going to touch something in men that’s lain dormant for a long time. “Are you having any negative thoughts? All I have are negative thoughts.” For a gender whose specialty is pushing pain down where it can’t be seen, just so jobs can be kept and worlds can be turned, could a better quote ever be written?
Of course, all of that is from the perspective of men. But not even every man; certainly not the kind of man who vapes and streams Mario Party on Twitch and genuinely cares how Disney will wrap up the Star Wars saga. You know the type. Men who think “Desmond Is Amazing” is a sign that we’re progressing toward a Star Trek utopia rather than… well, the end.
But what about women? From their perspective, Joker comes out of nowhere. It’s irrelevant at best, and dangerous at worst. Just think about the kinds of shows that women watch; can you think of anything appealing to women that has even a hint of what’s about to happen in our world? There aren’t any female talk shows warning women about Europe becoming a caliphate, or mocking California for becoming a third-world dump. Can you imagine feminist college classes warning women about the scary statistics concerning children raised by single moms? Yeah, right! Women get their news and their worldview from completely different media than conservative men, so as far as they know, we’re heading for a bright future. As soon as those crusty old men give up their positions as CEOs, women are going to fix everything! Right?
The media that women consume tends to show women in a positive light, feeding into their resentment and amplifying their sense of being downtrodden. From their perspective, a movie about a man who snaps and puts on clown makeup is just creepy and weird, a non sequitur *seemingly* out of left field. They have no idea that the guys they refer to as trolls are the canaries in the coal mine, watching the world fall apart, putting the pieces together in a way that women really can’t, but we’re holding back because we’re afraid of the backlash.
Anyway, what are the chances of some idiot shooting up a theater during a showing of Joker? How many Antifa degenerates are already cooking up something stupid? How many Feds are dressing up some poor guy whacked out on meds? Is anyone really going to be surprised when we get reports about a three or four-man shooter team killing people, and then all of a sudden the story changes and BAM! Mainstream media will be telling us the shooter was a white, right-wing extremist.
It wouldn’t be the first time, right?
