Sioux Falls group has a new billboard up accusing males of being “brutes,” and driving young women out of the country.

The odd “Sioux Falls Free Thinkers” group has a new billboard up in Sioux Falls this week.

The self-styled pagan, leftwing group is claiming that 40% of females under the age of 30 want to leave America.  The billboard claims that the reason is that females are threatened by “male brutes.” 

An article cites that a similar percentage of people in several countries express a desire to live elsewhere, however the study the free thinkers group appear to be taking their numbers from says nothing about “male brutes” driving them out.

But why would this group let facts stand in the way of blaming men?

The brutes.

          There is one formerly of SD in New Mexico that has a bounty on his head and a special place for him in Springfield.

    Any man who would mistreat a lady or any woman who would mistreat a man does not deserve their partner. However I believe that our society is demonizing men being men to the point that the ladies want to leave to find real men who will treat their ladies like ladies.

      Too many single men are all hiding in their parents’ basements, playing video games, terrified to invite a woman out to lunch or buy a drink, for fear of legal entanglements. Dating will get a man accused of harassment; sex will result in a charge of rape or a claim for child support.
      American women are toxic.

      Approaching 30, single women think their best shot at marriage and family is in another country. This is probably the case, as American men want nothing to do with them.

    I have not seen that survey, but the 40% they’re talking about probably want to go to the country when the Bachelor or Kardashians are taped.

    And where do these young women want to go?

    Morocco where they can be raped and beheaded?
    London where they can have acid thrown in their face?
    South America where they and/or their children are sex-trafficked?
    Or, how about Sweden, the rape capital of the world?
    Haiti? The Congo?

    I’ve been reading their various billboards for at least a year. They call themselves “freethinkers” and it has some merit. Their words are absolutely free of intelligent thought.

    We’ve been overwhelmed with all the psychobabble from these wackos and today we have the largest percentage of young people who contemplate suicide, are depressed, are medicated, and are fundamentally dissatisfied with their lives. And, these morons are telling us to double down on their psychobabble. Again, their moniker (free thinkers) is accurate: they are free of intelligent thought.

      A slick attempt at correlating idiots saying stupid stuff with suicide rates and medication levels, but I think we are gonna need some citations as to causation there, Troy.

        “Julie,” You may need causation citations. I don’t. Traditional family experts for decades predicted the chaos we are experiencing, it has occurred, and that is good enough for me. Not to mention my observation of which “technique” is resulting in better balanced young adults.

          Translation: I am going to make claims but refuse to back it up with facts. Methinks someone needs to check out Vigen’s spurious correlations and stop making bold claims without bold evidence.

            Typical ignorant anonymous viewpoint. Mistreatment of women a GLOBAL epidemic. Like climate change, anonymous, misogyny cannot be cure or escaped by emigration. Maybe if you opened your eyes and tried to understand others’ needs, instead of just focusing on yourself, you’d gain some empathy and perspective. There are, what, 195 nations? 196? In how many of those are women safe? How many of those ‘enlightened’ countries allow at-risk women women and children to emigrate? How many Sub-Saharan African refugees does Japan shelter? How many does Switzerland admit? Where’s the safe haven for Sudanese victims?

              What in god’s name are you talking about? I am not supporting the billboard’s message at all. I am debating Troy’s claim that idiots saying stupid things (like the idiots who made this billboard) have a causal relationship with depression rates and suicide. Are you high?

                I don’t have any stats or anything, but thinking logically, wouldn’t some women who see this billboard be malleable enough to have their emotions swayed by this billboard? Certainly not a lot, but possibly some, especially in this era of victim-hood propagated by the left.

                  There is a big difference between “this billboard bothered me” and “statistically significant increase in rates of depression and suicide.”

                      Insofar as it shows rates increasing, yes. As to what the rates are attributable to? That is a much more complicated question which, conveniently, Troy quickly glosses over.

    PC,

    Since you love putting words in your mouth, let me be clear. I don’t care what value methodology you endorse for you or your family. I don’t care much about you as an empty intellect or your lack of personal self-esteem. You are old enough to own all that yourself. I have my views and couldn’t care less whether you agree with me. You just aren’t worth it. I just wish you had the courage to use your name so all could laugh directly at you as a person.

      And to be clear, I am not PC. The idea of ideas being shut down in the name of not hurting anyone’s feelings is insane. Facts don’t care about your feelings. But you have to establish facts, Troy, not just make assertions about important issues with nothing other than your gut instinct to back it up. The fact that you can be more verbose about your dishonesty doesn’t make you right. Grow up, dude.

        He also tried to call me PC!

        This troy jones just seems to be getting angrier and angrier at anyone who points out his illogical rants.

        I guess he thinks that if he couches his feelings in superficially meaningful terms, that these feelings magically become “facts”. I questioned his logic on the death penalty: he felt that it was “government” “killing” citizens, and I pointed out that it is the jury (representing us, not the gov’t) that imposes the death penalty; and the jury system is intended (and does) protect all of us from the “government” doing that. He admitted that he was trying to convince voters to abolish the deth penalty but I countered that such an approach proved MY point: it is WE , through our fellow citizens serving on the jury, who are imposing the death penalty! If indeed it was the “government” doing the “killing” as he claimed, why wouldn’t he lobby the government to change it!

        He did not like that at all!

    Friend of Education,

    Advancing a discussion with this person is impossible. He likes to periodically come here and disagree with me for reasons that belie mental imbalance.

    My comments are global with regard to this group and their body of past billboards. They periodically change their message but they are always anti-traditional values and assert a victimhood whereby the perpetrator is “the man.” While nonsense, their billboards are a good laugh when waiting at lights until one contemplates people really live under these delusions. And, it becomes tragic when one contemplates their psyche is unable to handle wholesale rejection of their ideas.

      This is the first one I’ve seen that has anything to do with men. The ones I’ve seen are about evolution (fact), God (not a fact), athieism, etc. I think it’s great that someone is putting other views out there. Monoculturism is a scourge.

        You’ve seen evolution take place? In what species?! Wow, that must have been mind-blowing watching an organism change right before your eyes.

        Isn’t evolution a theory?
        Maybe you’re mistaking evolution with adaptation? Will you tell us about the great mind of Darwin too, Wikipedia does him no justice.

        …I’m curious as to which country you’d rather have the women in your life be a citizen of? Cuba? I know Beyonce & JayZ think it’s a country of great prosperity and freedom for women, and great minds think alike… you’ve got a great mind, you’re a free thinker!!

        Evolution is a theory, not a fact. Get your “facts” straight. I guess so long as this group is attacking religion and men you are okay with it. That just goes to show what kind of person you are.

      Hmm.. the only thing to “fear” from that intellectual idiot is the stupidity that comes out of her mouth. Anyone with even a small pea size brain should be able to see she has no idea what she is doing let alone talking about. And its scary to think that there are people such as yourself that must agree with her.

      AOC is ignorant of facts and spouts things that make no sense. It is frightening that a group of New York idiots elected someone with so little experience (life or job experience) and no grasp on reality. She is an anti-American and pro-Socialism type, and that should be scary to people who don’t want to have the government run their lives.

      I am using my right to free speech to call out morons like AOC and the stupidity she tries to pass off as legitimate.

      And no, I am not saying any of this because she is a woman; I just wanted to put that out there for you liberals who play the gender and race card as a substitute for intelligent argument.

    Anyone with anounce of common sense would do well to be scared of her. She can have all the free speech she wants, which is her constitutionally guaranteed right, but the danger comes when she is on a position of responsibility and the possible authority to implement her ill-conceived and irresponsible ideas.

          Look at you trying to correct… I used “given” because the media is using her as their darling. And “giving” her a platform. Being voted in, doesnt mean anyone automatically gets a platform to perform. However, with that girl, its a different story.

    I am going to take a bit of a different approach to this. The Gallup that is cited showed that 30% of ladies under 30 and those in the lower 20% economic stand would want to leave the country, with the country of choice being Canada.

    We seem to be stumbling over ourselves to answer, Why? I am going to guess there are about the same number of reasons as there are people wanting to leave.

    Unless I didn’t do my math right this would be generation Y or the Millennials, with their parents from Generation X. As someone from generation X, I can say I suffered some indignations growing up. I got bullied form time to time, and I learned to deal with it. I worked hard all year on my 4-H and other projects, only to be sent home with nothing to show for my work, that made me work harder for next time. Of course, as parents we want to protect our children from some of these injustices. We now have ‘participation’ ribbons, this way our children will not feel the ‘pain’ of losing.

    While in elementary middle school, It was expected that I go outside and played, as long I was in the house 10 min after the street lights came on, I was good. Today, the danger of a unaccompanied minor being picked up then trafficked for sex is very real. So as parents we become helicopter parents, making sure no harm comes to our kids.

    There was a comment about living in the basement, not dating, and working from home to earn money to buy stuff with. Again I go back to generation X and the media; they were generally career driven, putting off marriage and family until later in life, they are also quick to divorce. They was played out on television. Cohabitation was pretty frequent. Generation Y has pick up this and with the #metoo movement, it is no wonder gentlemen are almost afraid to speak to a young lady, let alone ask her out for coffee.

    This is the United States of America, this is the land of freedom. That doesn’t mean everything is handed to you for free. It means you have the freedom to pursue your interests. If something cost money, you have the right to go out and earn it. Sometimes things don’t work out as planned, so you have to change your plans. Some people don’t get this, and want to move to somewhere they don’t have to worry about money, because they are taxed to provide services for everyone else.

    I am not saying it is entirely the parents fault. However it would be disingenuous to say that previous generations didn’t play a role in how people responded to this poll. This poll is symptom of a much larger problem, one our government is not able to fix. That problem is going to have to be fix in individual homes.

    If health care cost is one of the reasons people want to move to Canada, that’s certainly something the government could fix.
