Where the extremist rightwing and Social Justice Warriors meet

In a few of my recent blog posts about prominent Social Justice Warrior Mikki Kendall, I predicted that Kendall would eventually follow in the footsteps of another self-proclaimed "feminist" Camille Paglia in finding common cause and admiration with the extreme rightwing. In Paglia's case, it is Rush Limbaugh. The Wall Street Journal loves Paglia too for her attacks against feminism.

Kendall hasn't found a rightwing buddy (yet) as far as I know, but the rightwing is waiting for her with open arms - the extremist rightwing anti-feminist web site Return of Kings absolutely adored Kendall's "#solidarityisforwhitewomen" hashtag and is completely on board with blaming (white) feminism for all the ills of the modern world.
"Return Of Kings is a blog for heterosexual, masculine men. It’s meant for a small but vocal collection of men in America today who believe men should be masculine and women should be feminine. 
ROK aims to usher the return of the masculine man in a world where masculinity is being increasingly punished and shamed in favor of creating an androgynous and politically-correct society that allows women to assert superiority and control over men. Sadly, yesterday’s masculinity is today’s misogyny. The site intends to be a safe space on the web for those men who don’t agree with the direction that Western culture is headed.

Women and homosexuals are prohibited from commenting here. They will be immediately banned, and anyone who replies to them will also be banned...

Notice the co-option of the Social Justice Warrior "safe space" concept. And the explicit banning of women and homosexuals.

On viewing the site now, I see the headline articles are "Most Women Don't Deserve a Good Man" and "How to Date Several Girls at the Same Time" and "Stop Being Such a Fucking Faggot."

The fact that such a site would be a huge fan of Mikki Kendall's most well-known message should give any actual feminists serious pause about the "feminism" of Social Justice Warriors.

And again, nobody should be surprised if Mikki Kendall eventually makes public common cause with, or even gets hired by, some rightwing organization. Her campaign of hatred against "white" feminism is music to rightwing ears.
