Men’s Rights Groups in a Panic Over Wild Murders
Members of “men’s rights” movement want to get one thing straight. Why a prominent member allegedly killed a judge’s son, seriously wounded her husband, and was implicated in the killing of another activist?
The death of a 72-year-old “anti-feminist” attorney suspected of carrying out a fatal attack against a federal judge and her family has spawned new online speculation.In fact, many believe in the idea that all the shootings were a conspiracy to make men’s rights activists look bad. Click To Tweet
Roy Den Hollander was found dead in upstate New York less than 24 hours after allegedly going to Judge Esther Salas’ home disguised as a FedEx delivery driver and shooting and killing Salas’ 20-year-old son Daniel Anderl; Salas’ husband 63-year-old Mark Anderl is currently listed in stable condition after the attack. Salas herself was not injured. Hollander’s death was attributed to a “self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
Authorities identified Hollander as a “primary suspect” in the attack, though they have not identified a motive. However, after reports began circulating of the attack, readers noted that it took place days after Salas was assigned to a class-action lawsuit filed by investors for Deutsche Bank. According to the suit, the bank failed to monitor “high risk” clients like convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and misled investors. Epstein died in jail in August 2019 after being arrested in connection with sex trafficking.
Marc Angelucci, the 52-year-old vice president of the National Coalition for Men (NCFM), was found unresponsive with apparent gunshot wounds July 11 in Cedar Pines Park, California, according to the release. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The NCFM said he was shot and killed in front of his home.
Hollander had turned himself into a semi-public figure since 2008 through a combination of litigiousness and misogyny, repeatedly filing lawsuits against what he claimed was gender discrimination against men. His personal website, which is still active as of July 20 2020, urges visitors to contact him to “help battle the infringement of Men’s Rights by the Feminists and their fellow sisters the PCers.” He drew media coverage for filing a lawsuit claiming that “ladies’ night” promotions on the part of bars and nightclubs were sexist, because they force men to pay more for drinks.
In 2015, Salas was the judge when Hollander represented a woman seeking eligibility for the United States military draft. According to NBC News, Hollander wrote that he “wanted to ask the Judge out, but thought she might hold [him] in contempt.”
But on another website he opened, “been-scammed.com,” Hollander wrote about Salas far more angrily:
She was Hispanic, clearly hated white men who fought for their rights, and even though my client was a woman, the judge intentionally delayed and delayed the case.
It took four years to get passed the motion to dismiss stage—unheard of for this type of case. The judge wanted to keep the case and its attorney, me, from winning a victory for equal rights in the U.S. Supreme Court. The judge is one of those Venezuelan socialists who hates Trump supporters, hates those who expect that judges should be competent and, as the Magna Carte says, render speedy justice.
She couldn’t rule against our position or she’d be labeled a reactionary idiot and never move beyond the N.J. District Court. So, she just delayed and delayed until the case became moot or something happened—which it did. Mother Nature gave me terminal cancer, so the case was turned over to an excellent law firm. Let’s see that Obama appointed bigot delay the case now.
