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.

It’s always sour grapes with this one, isn’t it? Women aren’t rejecting him; he was just about to reject them first. He’s not jealous of guys with girlfriends; he could totally get a hotter chick if he wanted. And he doesn’t even want a job, okay? Jobs are for betas.

Which is especially funny given his criticism of the journalist who broke the Pax story. “A journalist for Gawker isn’t a contributing member of society,” said the professional keyboard warrior.

Perhaps the way to deal with Roosh is to make sure whenever you have a quote of his where he’s admitted to raping a woman, or generally treating them like shit, put his face next to it. Then when everyone knows his face and what he is, we can see how many people still “get his dick”.

Does Roosh read manboobz? I wonder if he saw the “zombie dancing video” posted above yesterday because today in his blog he writes that, “Over the years, my energy has slipped to a 2. I can stand immobile for hours, and now stand like a skyscraper moves during an earthquake. This has greatly reduced my club target pool because I have to look for girls with energy that is 2 or lower.”

That should read “and now dance like a skyscraper moves during an earthquake.” Which is kinda how I imagine a zombie would dance.

It’s amazing how often he admits to being a loser even by his own definitions. “Yep, I can’t dance and most girls at clubs aren’t interested at me.”

If I had an energy level of two (I’m assuming a 10-point scale), to the point where the only “dancing” I could do was swaying in place, I would get my ass to a doctor. But maybe that’s just me.

I think what the average stoic was asking about, and what I’m curious about as well, is what are the grounds for Roosh’s allegations of racism against Tiku. Are they solely based on the fact she isn’t white and Dickinson is?

Also does anyone know what Dickinson’s chances of unfair dismissal would be? I’d assume Business Insider has the right to sack you for saying Business Insider sucks or Business Insider is racist. However can they sack you for saying racist and sexist things?

When you work in HR and have joked about how hiring qualified women is like hiring a unicorn, they can probably justify firing you on the grounds that your hiring process is bad for the company (assuming he isn’t an at will employee in the first place, in which case they could fire him for that god awful popped collar if they wanted to)

Peartree: in the US, most states have “at will” employment, which means they can pretty much fire you whenever for whatever. There are some protected classes, but being a sexist dipshit who should know better is not one of them.

In addition to that little comments section, I can’t tell if this blog is a joke. But this came up very high on google when searching for domestic violence stats and I’m blown away by the assertions. The title is “Over 71% of Wives Kill Their Husbands, Stats We Have To Take Notice Of” That title is not only misunderstanding statistics, but pulling numbers out of their ass.

http://rmaxgenactivepua.wordpress.com/2013/07/19/over-71-of-wives-kill-their-husbands-stats-we-have-to-take-notice-of/

This is what the divorce industry does, gives women huge incentives to kill men, avoid women guys, avoid marriage, go overseas where the women see you as men with real rights, screw the divorce & marriage industry, let it sink into a rotting grave, where it belongs.

Is this blog mocking PUAs and MRAs or is this guy serious when he makes articles like “0% Of Women Raped In the U.K, Rape Is Virtually Impossible In The U.K, Literally No Women Get Raped In The U.K”

My god!

Yes, in answer to Pear_Tree, the ONLY evidence Roosh has that Tiku is racist is that she is not white and her subject is. But what really set him off is when writer Anil Dash (also of Indian descent) tweeted half-jokingly to Dickinson that he hadn’t realized what an ass Dickinson was until he had read Tiku’s post. At that point, Roosh perceived a conspiracy (two Indians piling on an innocent white guy) and he saw red. Ironically, reading the tweets, it appears that Dash and Dickinson are kind of friendly, at least friendly enough to agree to meeting for lunch later that week…

I’ve always been aware that embarrassing my employer could get me fired in a red hot minute. A couple of times I have chosen to take that risk, but I was fully aware and accepting of the potential consequences. Pax Dickinson appears to have recognized that as well, when he admits he’d been expecting to be fired for a long time (in fact, appears to be surprised it took BI as long as it did to catch on to his shenanigans.)

I don’t get how divorce is somehow an incentive for women to kill men. I mean, here in the actual fact-based world, greater access to divorce (as well as DV shelters) dramatically DECREASE the rate of men murdered by their wives because there’s a non-violent way out of a bad marriage. And even in the Feminazi World Order, she can’t financially enslave him with lifelong alimony if he’s dead!

Hell, part of the reason I’ve been slack about legally changing our name is because we’re out as trans and multi on the web, and I didn’t want to shitcan my working life. Now, of course, it’s kind of a moot point, but Jesus Christ, I’d have to be some kind of dumbass to post hugely inflammatory shit like that under my legal name!

Logic is misandry! Ideological consistency is also misandry. Spelling and grammar are misandrist too. The whole concept of “making sense” is a feminazi conspiracy to shut teh menz up!

I mean, if casual sex never happened then his odds of getting laid would pretty much go from “close to zero” to “zero”. Not sure how that’s an improvement, unless the fact that nobody else is getting laid either would make him feel better.

To steal from Rifftrax, I’m sure Roosh treats sex like WIFI. Just get in the general area and you’re good. And given his date-rape history I would imagine that consciousness on the part of the other person is completely optional, even undesirable.

@emilygoddess That first set of quotes was actually fschmidt on GGGF’s comment section. Surprisingly enough, I was more outraged by a commenter than GGGF this time. I found the entry to be funny because he’d been mocked on the cracked.com forums and was mad about it. But GGGF was talking about how intelligent he thought fschmidt was, and certainly wasn’t telling him he was wrong. Though I did notice GGGF bringing up his education in history and lamenting the days where arranged marriages were a more common thing. He seems to believe that everyone ever had arranged marriages and not just wealthy people or people in certain cultures.

I mean, if casual sex never happened then his odds of getting laid would pretty much go from “close to zero” to “zero”. Not sure how that’s an improvement, unless the fact that nobody else is getting laid either would make him feel better.

Oh no, there are PROSTITUTES to save men from their desires. Somehow casual sex among two people who are actually interested in each other is immoral, but paying someone to have sex with you (as long as you’re a man) is necessary, according to fschmidt.

kittehserf

sarahliz – I imagine his victim being unconscious would be a bonus for Roosh, even though it would deprive him of her distress at the time. “In the general area” made me laugh, though. I had an idea of him crashing unconscious on someone’s floor and then claiming afterward he had sex! He really did!

lionicle – of course, because women enjoying sex, and doing it from choice rather than economic necessity, are the immoral things. Sex is for men to enjoy doing to women and for women to submit to. The idea of a confident, experienced partner makes these guys shrivel up in fear.

Re: He often characterizes Indians as “non-white” in contrast to his own “whiteness.” He constantly has to distance himself from them in an effort to prove his own “white male” status.

Indians are in fact not white (I’m ethnically Indian, for what it’s worth, though culturally white). Indians are a mixture of Ancient North Indian and Ancient South Indian racial stocks: the ANI are somewhat similar to Iranians, but the ASI are genetically as different from either Europeans or Chinese as those two are from each other.
