Racist pickup guru Roosh Valizadeh announces plan to “destroy” Pax Dickinson critic with charges of racism

No, I think Roosh V has you beat in that category.
No, I think Roosh V has you beat in that category.

The Pax Dickinson Crisis seems to have abated somewhat, with postings on the #standwithpax hashtag on Twitter slowing to a trickle and the production of manosphere rants on the subject more or less grinding to a halt, at least for the moment.

But there is one manosphere ideologue who hasn’t given up the fight for injustice, and that’s the despicable “game” guru Roosh Valizadeh, who seems to have embarked on a crusade to ruin the life and career of the Valleywag/Gawker writer who first brought Dickinson’s terrible tweets to the attention of the wider world.

Yesterday, Roosh slammed out a viciously racist, misogynist, homophobic and even transphobic rant attempting to smear the writer, Nitasha Tiku, as … wait for it … a racist.

Today, he announced his plans to try to “destroy” her reputation on Google by permanently linking her to that (false) charge.

He explained his strategy, which he suggests will work on all liberal writers who might criticize men for racism or misogyny:

Unless she’s applying for a position at Jezebel, no respectable company will touch a toxic individual who has been linked to racism. They don’t want anyone who may cause controversy for them, and behind rape, nothing says controversy like race. …

It’s a slow-burn attack that will effectively punish these writers and scare their co-workers , whose income is low enough that they need to depend on corporate employment indefinitely, unless one day they get an original thought and can stay away from their iPhone long enough to write a book. It won’t work on the big liberal writers like Jessica Valenti or Naomi Wolf, since any attention they get just helps them sell more books, but it does work on the young girl out of college trying to win feminist brownie points by denouncing a man for being “creepy” based on a bad joke.

And then he compared it with something he seems to have a certain amount of experience with:

Having your name destroyed on Google is the internet version of getting raped.

Lovely.

There are more than a few practical problems with Roosh’s little plan, the most notable being that if some hypothetical hiring manager comes across Roosh’s attack on Tiku — or on any writer he’s tried to tar — all this manager will have to do is spend a minute skimming Roosh’s post to see that the charge is bullshit and that Roosh is himself a raving bigot.

And Roosh, if you’re trying to smear someone, it’s generally not good form to announce this plan publicly in a post that at times reads like the monologue of some cartoon supervillain.

In his piece, Roosh notes that “[n]ot long ago, Buzzfeed insinuated I was a rapist.” Well, it did more than that: It quoted Roosh admitting quite frankly that he’d had sex with a woman who was too intoxicated to consent.

I thought, in the interests of openness, it would be worth quoting that passage from Roosh — it’s in his e-book Bang Iceland — once again. Heck, I’ll even give the bit Buzzfeed quoted a little more context. I’ll let you decide if Roosh is a rapist or not.

I hooked her arm and off we went. The best thing that possibly could have happened was a “failed” afterparty. There had to be a moment when she realized that all her friends are gone and the only reasonable option left was to go home with a strange man she had just met.

While walking to my place, I realized how drunk she was. In America, having sex with her would have been rape, since she couldn’t legally give her consent. It didn’t help matters that I was relatively sober, but I can’t say I cared or even hesitated.

I won’t rationalize my actions, but having sex is what I do. If a girl is willing to walk home with me, she’s going to get the dick no matter how much she has drunk. I’ll protect myself by using a condom (most of the time), but I know that when it comes to sex, one ounce of hesitation or a feeling of morality will get me nothing.

Emphasis mine.

At this point even Pax Dickinson may want to distance himself from this creep.

Don’t worry gals, he uses a condom (most of the time)!

So in his book “Bang Iceland” (yep, keep it classy) he’s admitting to rape under US law and Icelandic law. Yes, a quick check of the Internet does show that while Iceland’s laws aren’t ideal on the issue what he’s admitting to is still a felony.

Hyena Girl, everyone knows that laws only apply in the US.

And then only if the flag doesn’t have a fringe.

The only bit I hadn’t read before was the opening paragraph, and this was the most chilling part – even knowing he raped her afterward:

“There had to be a moment when she realized that all her friends are gone and the only reasonable option left was to go home with a strange man she had just met.”

It reads like he’s as eager for her to be apprehensive or afraid of being raped. I guess it shouldn’t be surprising, given we know he’s a rapist, but it makes it oh so clear that it isn’t sex that interests him, it’s rape.

Why, oh why, do as many people as do seriously listen to the “teachings” of this stupid a-hole Roosh? That depresses me even more than his existence.

Argh!!!!!! Roosh The Douche is pissing me off!!!!!!

All this does is remind me of my two friends who were raped when we were in high school. They were only 14 years old. One girl was even told by the lay minister of the church we were attending at the time that it was all her fault because she had been drinking. The worse part is that he was also a cop, & should have known better than to say something like that. This was only in 1990.

Tristan – they still say it now (Steubenville, anyone?) so 1990 comes as no surprise. 🙁

That “having sex is what I do” part is sad even if you were to indulge his delusion that he’s not a rapist, given that he doesn’t seem to enjoy the whole thing very much. He makes himself sound like some sort of rapist Sisyphus, endlessly toiling in the rape mines for no reason other than the fact that it’s the only way he can think of to punish women for not being subservient enough.

For him too, it sounds like. I mean, not that I care if he’s miserable – couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy, really – it’s just odd that someone would dedicate their life to something that obviously isn’t increasing their happiness at all.

Ugh, I know. That line literally made my skin crawl. I didn’t think the paragraph where he talks about getting her could actually get worse with more context, but, well, here we are.

Er, that was supposed to read “raping her,” not “getting her.” I was originally writing “getting her drunk and raping her” and edited, and that was somehow the result.

That is a confession of rape. Nothting less, but disturbingly so much more. Boasting about it. I feel like I need a special vomitbucket.

He can only build himself up by tearing everyone else down.

I’d cry for him if he wasn’t such a horrible person.

Yeah, the context makes it even worse.

Roosh is… Okay, yeah. I genuinely hope something awful happens to him. Not ‘stepping-on-lego-awful’. I mean debilitating. Something that makes him no longer a threat to other people’s safety. I hadn’t read that bit in my time here, so I didn’t know just how vile a piece of fucking shit he really is.

Roosh seems to be running out of money. His books aren’t selling well, and he’s been reduced to begging for donations on his blogs. His mother has told him he can’t stay with her any more unless he gets a job.

Only three things can happen to Roosh: (1) he will step over the line and be convicted and incarcerated for a crime, (2) he will commit suicide, or (3) he will be murdered, possibly by a Ukrainian thug defending the honor/purity of his country women. He already has a pattern of violating (overstaying) his tourist visas. I think the third possibility is the most likely way his story will end — practically inevitable really.

Anyway, he’s a sad waste of a human life.

pecunium

What I’d like is for someone close to him (mother, grandmother) to find out what a shit he is.

pecunium

La Strega: Ukraine no longer has visa requirements, so that’s not going to get him into too much trouble.

It’s a pity, I like Ukraine, and he’s fouling it up.

pecunium
8 years ago

Which is to say, he seems to not need to work (which is depressing, he’s collecting enough from his rape guides to live on; though it part of why he’ s places like Ukraine, the cost of living is cheaper, so that’s some comfort), so the visa issue isn’t going to bite him.

Worst case, he nicks over to Prague for a couple of weeks, and back to Ukraine.

La Strega
8 years ago

Pecunium, that’s probably why he has gone back to Ukraine…

Re/ informing his mom and sister… I think they know as much as they want to. Sis seems to be distancing herself from him (according to his own writing) and mom is not computer savvy, but he complains that both of them have been nagging him to “respect women” — much to his annoyance.

Argenti Aertheri
8 years ago

Pecunium — that’d probably only make 2 happen sooner and, well, I can’t wish suicide even on him. I do know a variety of fish that would love a finger snack though (and I don’t mean ones like puff who just want to nibble off your hangnails)

Morrigan

As grumpycatisagirl beat me to saying:

Worse than the fact Roosh exists is the fact that he exists, and there are people who praise and support him.

La Strega

He was nipping in and out of Romania for a while in order to maintain his tourist status, but complained of the hassle. He can no longer get visas for Estonia or Iceland because of violations.

pecunium
8 years ago

If only the denials were for the more offensive violations he’s committed in those countries.

La Strega
8 years ago

I don’t know that Roosh is the type to commit suicide; I may be projecting because if I were Roosh, I would not want to live. I cannot escape my premonition that something very unpleasant is going to happen to him, though. I don’t anticipate this with pleasure, exactly, more a sense of grim inevitability.

La Strega

Iceland has designated him an undesirable based on his “Bang Iceland” book.

pecunium

What I see happening is that he get’s older, and whatever appeal he has fades (he is banking on his, “manly-man” persona), which causes his sales to dry up.

I suspect that’s part of his hate-on for people like us; we undermine his business model.

When his sales dry up, he’s toast. He has no skills. I’ll wager he’s not filing Social Security taxes, so he’s not got any retirement plan. It’s sad, but in a few years (not soon enough) he’s not going to be the problem he is now.

La Strega

When he announced plans to visit Moldava, I kind of thought he might drift into other “lines of work,” perhaps gun running or smuggling.

La Strega

Yes, he may just fade into obscurity and find a permanent place on a relative’s couch in Maryland. An Iranian family is never going to close the door on one of their own.

Argenti Aertheri

Neither would an Italian family…their non-Italian spouse otoh…

Yeah, that’s how I ended up back at my parents. (Pecunium, I can’t refer to you by name around here because one of those husbands shares your given name and my mother gets all “wait, what?” about it)

I was going to write a comment asking what type of person who believes that there is some thing you can do to another person on the internet that is equivalent to rape and they are not only proud of doing it but they are advising other people to do it too. Then I finished Davids article and I realized that the answer is obvious a rapist is the type of person who would do that.

You know aging is going to fuck with Roosh’s head in a hardcore way. Good, says I.

He’s going to be that skeezy old guy in the club trying to relive old glories on the football field.

pecunium

I don’t think he has the sangfroid to pull off smuggling/gunrunning. If he’s not smart enough to avoid competing with the local criminal elements, he will pretty much deserve what he gets.

La Strega

At 35, he’s already the skeezy old guy in the kinds of nightclubs he frequents. But because he’s American, the young girls assume he’s loaded.

Roosh once wrote in his blog that he was the kind of little bully who would sucker punch another kid, then hop on his bike and speed away before his victim could retaliate. One thing you have to give Roosh: He’s not afraid to tell the world just what a monster he is (and apparently always was).

hellkell

Wait, Roosh is younger than me? I’d assumed he was older based on the pictures. I guess the dead-behind-the-eyes zombie look is aging.

La Strega
8 years ago

The other funny thing is that Roosh admits to always having been a real mama’s boy, an only child for several years (and only son) who was positively doted on / smothered. He describes himself as “un petit prince” who could do no wrong. It must have been a real trauma to find the world at large did not share his mother’s adoration.
