CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, House Democratic Leader Steve Shurtleff (D-Penacook) brought forth a motion asking for the House Legislative Administration Committee to investigate the involvement of Representative Robert Fisher (R-Laconia) in the creation of the “Red Pill” online forum. The committee will determine whether to recommend sanctions against Representative Fisher.
“I was shocked to see a report linking the creation of the ‘Red Pill’ online forum to a New Hampshire State Representative. A brief search of the ‘Red Pill’ reveals that it’s central purpose is to train men how to manipulate and dominate women. Misogynist beliefs about the intelligence of women are prevalent in ‘Red Pill’ discussions. It is particularly troubling that Representative Fisher has shown no contrition for his actions since being revealed as the creator of this forum.”
“Referring this matter to the Legislative Administration Committee will allow for an investigation into Representative Fisher’s involvement with this forum since his election to the New Hampshire House. As elected officials it is our duty to act with honor both inside the State House and out, and I am confident that the Legislative Administration Committee will give this serious matter the consideration it deserves.”
