“It is a fucking feminist system that’s doing this,” said UKIP leader Carl Benjamin while commenting on a mass murder case by a man rejected by women sexually.
A candidate from the UK Independence Party (UKIP) said that feminism is the reason for femicides. According to Carl Benjamin, the UKIP candidate for the May 23 European Union elections, men are murdering women en masse because they felt disenfranchized and are “out of options.”
Benjamin argued in a now-deleted video, “This is what feminism has wrought – a generation of men who do not know what to do, who are being demonized for what they are.”
Benjamin came under fire recently for tweeting “I wouldn’t even rape you” to the Labour MP Jess Phillips. Phillips said she received at least 600 rape threats after Benjamin’s tweets. Now a debate about his video from 2014 has surfaced.
“Before your stupid social justice feminist bullshit, it didn’t happen on this scale. It’s crazy – this is a disease of the modern age,” Benjamin said in the previously recorded video.
The video was released after a 22-year-old man murdered six people in California as a response to women rejecting him sexually.
“You are responsible for perpetuating it, by disenfranchising these poor fucking guys who don’t have any options left,” the candidate claimed.
Benjamin is a candidate in the south-west U.K. for European parliament’s regional elections which will take place in one month.
“The question you and all of your stupid fucking feminist cultists need to be asking is, why are these men becoming misogynists in the first place? What is this feminist-run society doing to them that is causing them to go insane?” the candidate asked in the video when questioned by a feminist activist about the California killings.
“You are not a man. You cannot possibly know what drives a man has. And when someone tells you, you say, ‘He’s a terrible person. Fuck you,'” Benjamin could be heard saying in the video adding that “it is a fucking feminist system that’s doing this.”
