#MeToo has led to a witch hunt 'coloured by a hatred of men'

Michael Haneke has become the latest figure to criticise the #MeToo movement against sexual assault and harassment in the film industry, arguing that it has instigated a “witch hunt” that “should be left in the Middle Ages”.

The Austrian film-maker, two-time winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, made his concerns known during an interview with Austrian newspaper Kurier, later reported by Deadline. “This new puritanism coloured by a hatred of men, arriving on the heels of the #MeToo movement, worries me,” he said. “As artists, we’re starting to be fearful since we’re faced with this crusade against any form of eroticism.”

While Haneke noted that any act of “rape or coercion” should be punishable, he said that “this hysterical pre-judgment which is spreading now, I find absolutely disgusting. And I don’t want to know how many of these accusations related to incidents 20 or 30 years ago are primarily statements that have little to do with sexual assault.

Haneke is 100% right. Funny games is one of my favorite movies but not for the faint of heart.

This is how all leftist driven movements are dying.

Eventually the movement becomes TOO radical and people begin to reject it even if the original movement may have had a valid point.

Black Lives Matter, MeToo, Feminism in general, etc.

Answer to this:

1. Sex robots and/or prostitution - there will be no need for making yourself open to accusations 30 years later, and suffering from the fact that men are supposed to be active in relationships (and later charged with sexual harassment, and assumed guilty without trial). Women have to fight this themselves, ot technology will make them obsolete

2. Publicize same-type behavior by women - https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/02/09/california-lawmaker-behind-metoo-push-is-accused-of-groping-male-staffer/

Men will have to start wearing dark glasses, as women flash them flagrant beaver and then point at them screaming that they are rapists when they look.
