American Thinker: Remember SCUM? In 1967, a seriously mentally-ill radical feminist, Valerie Solanas, self-published the original SCUM Manifesto.  Despite Solanas’s later insistence that SCUM was not an acronym, an ad she penned for The Village Voice used the subtitle, “Society for Cutting Up Men.”

In subsequent editions, publishers kept the violent rhetoric along with images of long knives on the covers.  After Solanas shot artist Andy Warhol in 1968, sales of her anti-male treatise promoting the elimination of all men, the overthrow of capitalism, and the establishment of female supremacy skyrocketed.

Today, feminists pay homage to the tract and its author. urges its followers to “bone up on your righteous man-hating” by reading the manifesto.  One commenter in July 2017 wrote: “What I love about this book is how it promotes straightforward man-hating.  Blaming men for the ills of the world is underrated.  Women have been under siege for centuries, and resistance feels exhilarating…”

Solanas’s manifesto opens up with the following declaration:

Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex.

Later in her text, Solanas goes nuclear, suggesting that the “thrill-seeking” women act like “hateful, violent b‑‑‑‑‑‑ given to slamming those who unduly irritate them in the teeth, who’d sink a shiv into a man’s chest or ram an icepick up his a‑‑‑‑‑‑ as soon as look at him, if they knew they could get away with it.”

The manifesto’s premise is clear.  Men are scum and deserve to die.   MORE

  1. “Psycho Killer
    Qu’est-ce que c’est?”

    “Insane in the Brain …”

    This is why we used to have nut-houses.
    Now we (?) appoint them to head DNC – or head up some media outlet (CNN, MSLSD, ABC, CBS, NBC, GOOGLE, TWITTER, FACEBOOK, &c.).

    izlamo delenda est …

  2. I don’t understand how women like this are not vilified for doing the same thing they accuse men of doing. It’s the same as saying that blacks cannot be racist, right? Everything evil comes down to a secular “mental illness”, but some big part of it is intentional and should be called out.

    Our government isn’t the only thing that needs fixing. Boys and girls need decent, sober parents to teach them how to act like decent human beings toward the opposite sex.

  3. It looks like the Republicans will give Blowsy a chance to testesfy and you know what that means. Because Ford’s bringing her swimsuit and caravanning across America women everywhere will join the 5 million woman SCUM brigade as they drive to Washington. Not unlike Gump I suppose as people rally along. It will be a sight to behold, I’d bet they’ll even be wearing Trump penises, and Stormy will be dancing in the rear. LOL. a 21st Century American Spectacle.

  4. Problem: violent feminists are using norms from 50 years ago to call for action that was radical 50 years ago. But you’ve come a long way baby; you’ve earned the right to a beat down if you want to resort to violence today.

    One thing that hasn’t changed: men are still physically stronger than women. Don’t make the mistake that men won’t hit a woman; if you attack a male, he will think nothing of defending himself and it won’t end well.

  5. Proposition a: In any conflict between a man and woman, the woman is always blameless regardless of the circumstances. The woman’s story will always be accepted as the true one. Men cannot in any way defend themselves, as that further victimizes the woman. Men, being men, will always be guilty every time.

    Proposition b: Women are justified in hating and doing any degree of violence to men that they think they can get away with, but men may decide to defend themselves in any way necessary and will be justified in doing so because of the hostility of the woman. So if she starts it, she’d better be sure she’s able to finish it.

    Pick one, and only one, can of worms to open cuz you aren’t allowed to open both.

  6. Valerie Jean Solanas (April 9, 1936 – April 25, 1988) was an American radical feminist and author best known for attempting to murder Andy Warhol in 1968 and writing the SCUM Manifesto, which she self-published in 1967. Solanas urged women to “overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and eliminate the male sex”.[1][2]

    She said her father regularly sexually abused her and her alcoholic grandfather physically abused her and Solanas ran away and became homeless. She later came out as a lesbian in the 1950s. Working as a writer, she met pop artist Andy Warhol and asked him to produce her play Up Your Ass. Warhol hired her to perform in his film, I, a Man.

    Two things:

    Interesting that she asked a man, Andy Warhol, to do her play.

    Interesting that she died in the scummiest part of San Francisco, The Tenderloin.” If any of you know San Francisco, and the Tenderloin, you know that it is right up there with the scum who died there, Valerie Solanas.


    When Ike was President , and because as GWB clearly pointed to we were not and are not Americans, I and 17 of my cousins worked in the fields to save $ for college. One of the many field jobs id did was pick prunes. The foreman had a big pole with a claw and he used it to shake the branches, 1 at a time. to make the prunes fall and we picked ’em from the dust. Fruit/vegetable seasons were only a few weeks so I got a lot of UnAmerican experience picking many different kinds. The cousin next to me only got 1,600 on his Boards (that is a perfect score GWB!) Got a full scholarship dot MIT! Which BTW was really UnAmerican; and still seems to be!
