The Femistasi and the Plain Old STASI
I suppose their rationale might be, that the East German STASI was a Communist org -- hence "left-wing". You know, as opposed to the National Socialists, who are deemed "right wing", hence, I don't know. . . . somehow worse? Mind you, I get that the STASI didn't operate death camps, so clearly they must shine by comparison to the Nazis, nicht wahr? Sure, I guess I can sort of understand why a pro-feminist, anti-male gang in Vancouver, Canada, would embrace the monikker of "femistasi" in preference to "feminazi." No doubt they find it all very artsy, edgy, and tongue-in-cheek, to call themselves such a thing. And I know they depend on you to smirk knowingly along with their cutesy, masturbatory, avant-garde little inside joke, and to never-but-never remark how closely their own attitude resembles that of the original STASI.
So I will never-but-never call these progressive Vancouverites "feminazis". Feminists hate to hear that word for any reason at all, so Femistasi it is, all the way! See how accommodating I am?
Now, the word STASI is short for Ministerium für Staatssicherheit -- that's "Ministry for State Security", if you're curious. This ministry was founded in 1950, when the smoke of war had hardly cleared and rubble still lay in heaps. And for the following forty years it held the German Democratic Republic under a pythonic reign of Schrecklichkeit which I earnestly hope you can't imagine. (It has been my honor to converse with Germans who lived in those times!)
At any rate, the original STASI never cared one spit about about human rights, so it is all of the same cloth, so to speak, that their current quasi-namesakes in Vancouver become apeshit-angry over the slogan that "men's rights are human rights."
Derek Bedry of openfile.ca is certainly a case in point, and when he fabricated his own news in order to write a fake story about people he wanted to destroy, he operated from the same bag of tricks that his East German role models dipped into for many years. But I should in fairness add that the original STASI had far worse tricks up its sleeves than that. So I reckon these Vancouver femistasi just never get a chance to show their stuff, do they? And so they must discreetly draw the line at pony league projects. For now, anyway.
So with all of that echoing in your brain, I send you to the official Wikipedia article about the original East German STASI. I would encourage you to study the long list of "examples" -- especially toward the end, where it features propaganda smear tricks these gallant lads got up to when they weren't bloodying their hands with matters purely murderous:
And when you are done with that, you will enjoy this:
Finally, to highlight yet again the karmic arc of misandry which runs from all quarters to all quarters, here as usual is a link to the Agent Orange files:
