Pro-Wrestling Created ANTIFA

Me and a friend of mine stay up late some nights on the phone talking about our favorite crazy pro-wrestling angles, our favorite matches, personalities and federations. We also talk a LOT about the current political climate and the absolute insanity of the Social Justice Left.

The other night we were talking about ANTIFA, the Battle For Berkeley and the underhanded tactics the Left uses to try to shut down free speech and pro-Trump rallies. Then it hit me. ANTIFA and SJWs are using the exact same underhanded, dirty, scumbag tactics as classic pro-wrestling heels (bad guys.)

ANTIFA ripped off pro-wrestling booking tactics.

Stick with me here. The classic heel wrestler is always a coward. He’s always looking for ways to cheat the rules behind the referee’s back to gain an advantage without having to rely on his own skills or athleticism to win the match. One of the standard heel tactics is to wait till the referee is distracted, then pull a “foreign object” out of his waistband and use it to lay out the face (good guy) in full view of the audience, but not the ref, thereby scoring him an undeserved victory.

Observe this classic heel move performed by “Bike Lock Teacher” in Berkeley:

Bike Lock Teacher performs the move on the defenseless free-speech rally attendee in full view of cameras, but not in eye-shot of the police. Notice how his fellow Antifa part just enough for him to jump in, smash the kid in the head and then leap back into the crowd?

Take the way Antifa dresses. They wear black hoods, black pants, black boots and black masks so that they can perform acts of violence and vandalism without being easily identifiable by observers and police. This is another standard heel tactic. Masked wrestling heels often “trade out” for a body double after the face wrestler bests them in normal combat. The tired heel rolls under the ring and is replaced by the fresh, uninjured body double who then goes on to win the match for the heel.

A tried and tested heel tactic, once their own illegal use of an object is thwarted, is to put it in the hands of the face then get the referee’s attention and try to get the face wrestler disqualified. Observe these Antifa douchebags as they taunt a citizen journalist before assaulting him, only to scream “Racism!” at the police who witness the entire thing before arresting the Antifa goon, much to the dismay of his lying, cheating friends looking on.

Another classic heel move is for the bad guy to take his own female or skinny male valet or manager and use them as a human shield to stop the face wrestler who, by virtue of his “good-guy” or hero status, can’t hit females or wimpy males without breaking his own ethical or moral code. The heels take advantage of this by tossing their manager in front of the face wrestler just as they’re about to have an ass-woopin’ delivered on them.

Have a look at Atifa putting this time-tested heel maneuver into practice with “moldylocks” as this Antifa chick is so affectionately known:

Antifa loves to create “human shields” out of their female members and then dare counter-protesters or rally attendees to attack them. They taunt the attendees saying things like, “you won’t hit a GIRL will you?” Knowing that the free-speech side or Trump supporters live by an ethical code of standards that do not include beating up people smaller or weaker than them.

But at some point, after a feud has gone on for several months, across multiple pay-per-views and after the face wrestler has been cheated out of his well-deserved victory time and time again, the face will get sick of the heel’s dastardly tricks and turn those tricks on the heel. This elicits a huge pop (cheer) from the crowd and paves the way for the face wrestler to hit his finishing moves and finally pick up the victory he’s been after for so long, such as was the case with the Trump supporter laying out Moldylocks in all her hairy glory.

Think about it. These Antifa scumbags sit around on the internet and develop the most underhanded, unethical tactics they can to disrupt free speech and pro-Trump rallies KNOWING that they’re not strong enough, brave enough, or, and this is the scariest part, RIGHT enough to combat the ideas of conservatives on an even playing-field.

Antifa cannot win idea vs idea, fact vs fact so they pull off the same kind of underhanded nonsense that wrestling bookers use to make the fans HATE heels. Bookers have to WRITE FAKE STORIES to give their bad-guy wrestlers the kind of traits that make them the most unlikable characters on their shows.

Antifa does this in real life. Which side are you on?

HorrorHound Weekend: Cincinnati 2017 Recap

Horrorhound Cincinnati 2017 marks over 10 years of road life for me. My first con was in 2006. I printed up 80 copies of my first feature film DREAM REAPER and took it to a small show in northern Ohio with an attendance of maybe 150 people over three days.

We sold 7 movies. Mostly to other vendors who felt sorry for me because I brought 10 actors with me to celebrate the release of my first film. We were all cramped around a single six foot table.

We had a magic show in the corner. We dressed a guy up like the Pumpkin Monster. We traveled in two trucks and rented two hotel rooms. I don’t think our sales even covered our gas money.

The upside was, the con was so slow, we were able to get Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman to do the video introduction to the movie. (Which meant that the 80 copies I’d already pressed up were useless because I needed to re-burn the DVD with the Troma intro.)

A lot has changed in these 11 years. Everything has changed.

But the one thing that remains constant is that horror fans still love horror conventions. And all these many years later, I’m still out here. Lloyd Kaufman is still out here. He’s still slanging Troma films.

I made the switch from feature films to fiction in 2012 and now, five years later, I can set up a small table, only bring one guy to help work the booth (big shout out to READING TO STRANGERS co-host Jeremy Daniels who sold more gay jesus chap books this weekend than ANYONE thought possible!), and sell as many copies of my novels as I BROUGHT of my first film to that first show.

That’s what’s supposed to happen, right? You do something long enough, you stay humble and you pay your dues and then you become successful at it.

When I think of all of the adventures my friends and I have had over the years, all the great people and crazy people we’ve met on the road over the years, I can’t help but smile. This is a crazy, stressful, maddening, but ultimately fulfilling life.

I really truly can’t think of another lifestyle I’d be more content living. I get to write anything my imagination can dream up and then I get go out on the road with my best friends and put those insane stories into the hands of my fans and give them a small portal into the mind of a mad man.

The last few months have been especially challenging. As I’ve broken away from the toxic writing community that seems totally happy playing gossip games on facebook rather than chasing success and adventure, I wondered how I would be received by the horror fans at large on the midwest con circuit.

Would they side with the full time drama queens on social media and ghost me like they never knew me? Would they start drama of their own over my non-PC social and political views?

Of course not. They treated me exactly the same way they always have. With smiles and open hearts. Like family. The Strangeheads don’t give a single fuck about online drama. In fact, NO ONE does outside of the tiny little circle of wannabe writers who start it.

Think about it, I signed almost the same amount of books in three days as the actual amount of people in the shitty little gossip communities who try to drag me down to their level.

When you’re at a con and you hear Iron Maiden playing in the distance, rest assured you’re about to stumble upon the green and purple world of Strangeville, full of drunk weirdos who all look vaguely like the ugly headed Kevin Strange leering down on you from the table banner behind us.

Come buy some books, gang. There’s a decade worth of stories in them. And don’t believe what you hear on the internet. They’re just jealous they don’t live here.

The End Of Facebook? [Kevin Strange Joins]

As mainstream social media continues its decent into censorship, open spying/data collection and blatant political bias, more and more people are jumping off of platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Youtube/Google in droves.

Social media was always going to be a fad, but for a few years, it was a useful fad. As a creator or marketer, you could get your products and services in front of the eyes of millions for free.

In fact, I built my career partially from the free marketing platform provided by Myspace and Youtube in the early 00s. But as these corporations moved away from grant funding toward profit models, it was those creators and marketers who have suffered the most.

It is well known by now that Facebook, Twitter and Youtube throttle down organic reach, stifling the opportunity for rich, interesting content to go viral naturally. Only with large sums of money can a creator hope to put their content in front of the very people who have chosen to follow them.

Even more recently, these social media platforms have begun rolling out blatant censorship tools under the guise of fighting “fake news.” Fake news of course being any information deemed harmful to the political parties with which the owners of the platforms most closely identify.

Matt Drudge from the Drudge Report, the most influential right wing political website on the internet has called for the public to return to website by website surfing, thereby eliminating the middle-man social media platforms that have become a barrier between users and the information they choose to see.

I took that advice to heart in 2016, shifting 100% of my focus away from social media, parking all of my content here on my website. To say that I’ve seen a DRAMATIC increase in web traffic because of that decision would be a gross understatement.

I learned quickly that directing an audience away from facebook is relatively easy to do. All you need is an easy to navigate website and interesting content that they cannot get from social media alone. It’s really that simple.

But what about those people who are looking for a fix somewhere in the middle between the data mining, left wing social media, and simply bookmarking websites? Those users who still wish to be social online, but without the blatant bias and open spying/data collecting?

I’ve noticed a lot of the liberty movement content creators from youtube moving to a new social media platform called I like Minds because of its focus on privacy and freedom of speech. The website does not take censorship lightly and must be compelled by real evidence of harassment or harm to delete content.

It also has a monetization feature that allows the users themselves to control how viral their content becomes not by being throttled on their followers’ timelines, but by boosting their content to even more users beyond their circles. And simply by interacting on the site, users receive “points” that can be converted into boosted views.

It’s very intuitive and allows for the Minds creators to be a profitable business without having to resort to data mining and content throttling. I have created an account there and will post content that I deem too trivial for this site, but that will give fans the intimate social aspect that they’ve come to enjoy by interacting with their favorite creators on social media.

You can find my Minds account at I hope to see you there.
