‘Portlandia’ Destroys Men’s Rights Activists With Hilarious Song
Tired of cringe-inducing neckbeard MRAs and their stupid arguments about how men are somehow an oppressed class? Portlandia has just the video for you!
To promote the new season of the long-running IFC show (out January 5, 2017 with 10 new episodes), the show has put together an anthem for the TRUE victims: straight white men. (Full disclosure: I am a straight white cis man, so if you’re going to call me names in the comments, at least call me a cuck instead of the slurs you use on anyone with a name other than Peter Lundquist.)
The sketch above starts simply enough, with show stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein (dressed in drag, including a pitch-shifted voice) bicycling past a feminist bookstore and whining about how men need safe spaces too. From there, it evolves into a fist-pumping anthem that asks a simple question: “What about men?”
I don’t want to spoil too many of the jokes, but here’s my favorite:
Armisen: “How come we don’t know about Harriet Tubman’s husband, or Eleanor Roosevelt’s?”
Armisen: “We only know his initials?!”
Reminds me of this classic Parks and Rec episode:
Nice. What do you think? Hilarious, or are you ~~~triggered~~~? Let us know in the comments below or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
