This idiot completely failed in his effort to hide his identity:

Last November, voters in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region re-elected to the state house of representatives a man who appears to be one of the secret architects of the internet’s misogynistic “Manosphere.”

The homegrown son of a preacher, 31-year-old Robert Fisher is a Republican who represents New Hampshire’s Belknap County District 9. In addition to his legislative duties, Fisher owns a local computer-repair franchise, and in his spare time, seems to have created the web’s most popular online destination for pickup artistry and men’s rights activists, The Red Pill, according an investigation by the Daily Beast.

An investigation into Fisher’s online aliases found a trail of posts linking the lawmaker to the username Pk_atheist, the creator of The Red Pill—an online Reddit community of nearly 200,000 subscribers that promotes itself as a “discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.”

A post by Pk_atheist in the early days of the forum advertises the author’s blog, Dating American, a blog that immediately precipitated the establishment of The Red Pill in 2012 and which was “dedicated to the woes of dating in the American culture.” On the “about the author” section of Dating American, the author, who calls himself “Desmond,” promotes two other blogs he’s “authored”: Existential Vortex and Explain God.

Performing a search of the unique URL for Existential Vortex led to a comment on an ex-Christian message board again advertising the blog, This post, written under the alias

“Interested,” provided the keystone that connected Pk_atheist and Robert Fisher. First, the post revealed the user was the author of Existential Vortex (and thus, Dating American). Second, in the user’s bio, he stated his band—The Five Nines—had a new album out. Robert Fisher is the sole member of his band, The Five Nines.

Naturally, and despite public calls for him to step down by state leaders (who are also Reuplicans!), the knuckledragger refuses to resign:

Gov. Chris Sununu on Wednesday told WMUR that the resignation of state Rep. Robert Fisher “is certainly in order” following a report on the online website The Daily Beast that the two-term lawmaker was involved in the creation of a misogynistic message board and made disparaging and derogatory comments about women.

“Representative Fisher’s comments are horrendous and repulsive and his resignation is certainly in order,” Sununu said in a statement emailed to WMUR by his office. He was referring to posts attributed to Fisher on the “Red Pill” message board on by The Daily Beast.

Sununu joined House Speaker Shawn Jasper in saying that Fisher’s resignation would be appropriate (see our report below).

WMUR reached out to Fisher on Wednesday seeking his response to the comments by Sununu and Jasper. On Tuesday night, Fisher said in a statement provided to WMUR that he had no intention of resigning.
