    Yesterday | Concord Monitor

    I was shocked and angered when I read the article from the Daily Beast exposing New Hampshire state Rep. Robert Fisher, a Laconia Republican, as the creator of the "Red Pill" subreddit: a self-described place for "discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men."
