To The Daily Sun,
Why is Robert Fisher still in office? He admitted to creating the sexist 'Red Pill' forum, yet he's still a representative. Governor Sununu and Republican Party Chairman Forrester need to do more than just release statements saying he should resign. They need to proactively seek his resignation from office.
Already, various Republican representatives are working to rehabilitate Fisher's character. Rep. Dan Hynes said, "it would be nice if those people who asked for him to resign issue an apology." Rep. Herb Vadney said, "he's a thoughtful guy" and, he's "never seen any sign of him being antagonistic towards women." Hynes, Vadney, and others are trying to make us forget that Fisher actually said, "rape isn't an absolute bad, because the rapist I think probably likes it a lot."
It doesn't matter if some Republicans like him personally or think he's a thoughtful guy. What matters is that Fisher founded and participated in an outlet for woman-hating men to connect and exchange ideas.
Every day that Fisher remains in office voting on issues like underage solicitation and child marriage, he is shaping New Hampshire's future. When Republican men put out statements condemning these actions but don't do everything in their power to force Fisher to resign, they're signaling to female Granite Staters that our safety isn't a priority. They're saying it's acceptable for someone who claimed: "it is literally the (female) body that makes enduring these things worth it," to hold office. They're saying we don't matter.
