Roosh's Revenge Fantasy: The pickup artist and Gawker-media-hater writes a short story about the murder of an SJW blogger

rooshexplainssomething
Roosh, probably saying something terrible.

Roosh Valizadeh has long fantasized about ruining the professional lives of alleged “social justice warrior” journalists who criticize racist and misogynistic assholes like himself.

Now he’s fantasizing about murdering them.

Yesterday, the pickup guru and “Return of Kings” founder posted a short story on his personal blog about a twentysomething mailroom worker who loses his job after a feckless SJW reporter working for a Gawker-like blog called “The Denouncer” discovers an offensive Facebook post of his and writes a hit piece on him.

Unable to get a decent-paying job, the young man travels to New York and guns down the reporter who, in his mind, ruined his life.

If you have to guess which of the two characters Roosh sympathizes with, you clearly haven’t encountered him before.

Roosh has had a hate-on for “SJW” journalists – and Gawker media in particular – for some time. In 2012, he included Gawker, alongside such other obvious-to-him evils as Kim Kardashian, Apple Computer and “most media companies,” in a list of “culture parasites” that in his mind are “contributing to the decline of American women, and therefore [male] happiness.”

In 2013, Roosh led a Manosphere crusade against Vallywag writer Nitasha Tiku and blogger/entrepreneur Anil Dash after Tiku wrote a post highlighting a series of offensive Tweets from Business Insider’s then-Chief Technology Officer Pax Dickinson, whom she described tartly (and accurately) as a “tech bro nightmare.”

Dickinson lost his job and Roosh tried his best to ruin the lives and livelihoods of the “two Indian immigrants [who] coordinated to destroy the livelihood of a white American-borne professional,” declaring Tiku to be “a suspected Marxist [with] a pattern of disliking white men.” (For what it’s worth, Tiku and Dash have both lived their entire lives in the US. Neither, and I’m taking a wild guess here, are Marxists.)

Roosh has used his blogs Return of Kings and Reaxxion to launch similar if less extensive smear campaigns against several other “SJW” journalists, including several others who were at the time writing for Gawker media. (See here, here, here, and here.)

And he has enthusiastically supported #GamerGate’s anti-Gawker media crusade.

His short story, titled “The Denouncer,” takes his “critique” of Gawker one step further, setting an everyman hero whose “only fault in life was that he was an average man” against the “star blogger” for a Gawker-like “social justice” blog whose speciality is ruining the lives of “heterosexual white men.”

Roosh, struggling against his inadequacies as a writer, resorts to crude stereotypes in his attempts to convey to his readers the true evil of The Denouncer’s staff. His vision of New York new media is cartoonish and conspiratorial.

In her job interview with The Denouncer’s founder, a gay man named Ted who was from South Africa and had a fiery Filipino ladyboy lover, Katie asked what was the overall mission of the new venture.

“To make society better,” Ted replied. “We want to shame, humiliate, and embarrass all the racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, transphobic, fatphobic, and cisgender jerks to forever stop all that is offensive. America has no place for such backwards beliefs and thinking.” …

“This sounds like a social justice blog.”

“This is social justice on steroids.” Ted spoke with a lisp so the phrase ‘social justice’ was a tongue twister for him. “We won’t be afraid to dox people and go after their bread. My dream is that in a year or two, people will be so scared of us that it will change not only what they say publicly, but also how they think.”

Katie signs on enthusiastically, quickly becoming known for her takedowns of racists; she receives bonuses of $500 each time one of her posts gets a man fired.

Brad, the hero of the story, comes to her attention after posting a picture of himself brandishing a newly bought Glock pistol to Facebook with the caption “I’d like to see some dirty Mexicans try and take my country.”

After being sent his Facebook photo from an anonymous reader, she darkened it a bit in photoshop to make him appear more sinister. She called him a “racist asshat” and then showed photos of sad Mexican children with dirt on their faces attempting to cross into America for a better life. She also added that Brad is “not what America stands for” and “will probably commit murder if he’s not stopped.” To end her article, she pleaded with her readers to put a stop to men like Brad by contacting his employer and letting them know what they think of his racism and pre-violence.

To celebrate his firing, Katie upgrades her iPhone.

Brad, meanwhile, is left reeling. He’s unable to get another job that pays enough to pay the bills, because a “dozen other blogs picked up Katie’s story and now the first page of Google was bombed with accusations that he was a racist and a future murderer.”

Ironically, Roosh is an enthusiastic advocate of “Google bombing” when the target is an alleged “SJW” journalist he doesn’t like. In a 2013 post, Roosh gleefully outlined what he saw as a foolproof plan to torpedo the careers of “New York city media liberals.”

Little Susie is writing for Jezebel today, but she will have to change jobs at some point, meaning a Human Resources airhead will search for her name to make sure she is a proper fit for the company. …

Unless she’s applying for a position at Jezebel, no respectable company will touch a toxic individual who has been linked to racism. … If you dig into these writers work and background, you can easily find cases where they spew anti-white or misandrist views. All that’s left is getting that on the first page of Google.

As proof, Roosh posted a screenshot of a Google search for Tiku’s name, showing his attack on her among the top results. (In fact, though he didn’t know it at the time, his accusation of anti-white racism would cause Tiku no career troubles; she was promoted at Vallywag, then hired away by The Verge.)

But in his story, Brad’s plan for revenge is far more direct than fucking with Katie’s Google results: he borrows money from his father to travel to New York and kill her.

Heading to SoHo, where the fictional Denouncer’s offices are located (and where the real Gawker media offices were until recently), Brad spots Katie leaving work, and Roosh lets us know that she is not only a life-ruining narcissist but a man-jawed fattie, the ultimate PUA nightmare:

The first thought that struck Brad’s mind was how much fatter she was in person than in her carefully managed online photos, but it was definitely her—he recognized the same strong jaw and broad nose.

He follows her to her Brooklyn apartment, stalks her as she walks her “little dog” to a nearby park, and confronts her, demanding to know “Why did you ruin my life?”

Then he pulls out his gun and shoots her dead. Moments later he turns the gun on himself. [See CORRECTION note at end of post.]

Roosh sees the killing as a sort of rough justice for her “crimes” against a decent man:

Brad’s only fault in life was that he was an average man. He was destined not to greatness, but to having a mediocre job in a mediocre town with mediocre entertainments to fill his time. Getting out of the hole that Katie put him in was too great a task. Someone more capable would have thought of other options … but Brad believe [sic] this was the only way to end his pain.

Katie’s murder generates a good deal of media coverage, leading one policeman to Tweet “If you ruin a man’s life, don’t be shocked when he tries to ruin yours.”

An “an up-and-coming intern” at The Denouncer spots this Tweet, and quickly writes a post labeling him an apologist for murder.

She got him fired within 81 minutes, a new record. The next day she arrived at work to applause from her co-workers—it was her very first firing bonus.

In the comments to his post, Roosh himself gets mostly applause for his chilling revenge fantasy, including this exchange, referencing a film about a 12-hour purge in which all crimes are legal.

 greyghost1 • 18 hours ago  Katie had that coming. He was minding his business doing his thing. When the SHTF it is going to be like that movie The Purge  1 • Reply • Share ›          −     Avatar     YosarriansRight greyghost1 • 17 hours ago      "When the SHTF it is going to be like that movie The Purge"      I fucking hope so!!!

I can only hope that Roosh and his followers limit their enthusiasm to fictional violence.

CORRECTION: In my original post, I wrote that Brad killed Katie and her dog. He kills Katie and then kills himself. But Roosh is such a terrible writer I misread the passage and concluded Brad had shot the dog.

In contrast …

I take public transit to work. Frequently, there’s one or more streetcorner preachers outside the exit from the train station. Usually it’s the standard “repent and love Jesus”, with the slightly-less frequent “You deserve to go to Hell because you are an evil horrible person who can do no good”.

Seriously. These people have giant banners that say that.

This morning was different. I didn’t stick around long enough to hear much, but what I did hear was this:

“Your life has value. You deserve to live. You are a valuable human being and you deserve to live”

So.

I’ve been trying to be amused by how pathetic this is, but I’ll be honest, Roosh’s story reads like something introduced into evidence because it was written in an accused killer’s diary. I’m concerned that it might not take long for some of these horrible sods to go from fantasizing about something like this to actually doing it. And if they did, they’d be hailed as heroes by the MRA community just as Elliot Rodger was.

Brad’s only fault in life was that he was an average man.

Funny how their “average man” always has racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia…and a gun. And that rather than working hard at being a better person to begin with, as a REAL average man does, he just automatically slides down the shit-path into self-ruin, blaming everyone else along the way.

Meanwhile, the “baddies” are just totally unconvincing. Yeah, there’s totally a media site where you get paid $500 a head to get a shithead fired from his mediocre job. Where the hell do I sign up?

And the average man is also always cis, straight, white, conservative, and American. It’s a mystery.

So is this average man meant to be global?cause most of the world’s men aren’t waving guns and threatening mexicans. Most countries don’t even border on Mexico. Is this Roosh’s criticism of how easy access to firearms allows desperate men to do irrational things?

How many leftwing messages can be extracted from this 1 story?

Roosh is such a twisted pile of blech. And so very confused. I remember reading something he wrote a year or so ago about how women were getting more rude. Apparently he believes that in the past women were civil because they only had to deal with men who either knew close relatives or friends so if they were rude to a guy, it would have huge social consequences, but as more and more men are “learning game,” especially “day game” (talking to women during the day) and approaching women they don’t know, women are acting out more often because because it’s their nature and there are no consequences.

All the misogyny and other idiocy besides, MEN AND WOMEN WHO DON’T KNOW EACH OTHER HAVE BEEN HOOKING UP ALWAYS! Who doesn’t know that? Who doesn’t know that’s a basic thing that happens every time there are lots of people in an area?
It just really irks me that these “pick-up artists” claim all this special knowledge of human nature, but don’t even get the basics, that they don’t get that their obvious anti-social tendencies are the reason that getting laid become the Olympics of mental gymnastics for them.

He acts like life is so hard, but the thing is, I don’t look to much different that Roosh. I’m probably just as talentless and broke as he is too, and I’ve always seemed to have decent women in my life and always been pretty happy being an extreme privileged westerner. This guy is just terrible.

Also he’s a rapist. So, yeah screw him.

@fromafar

Sound familiar!? This could be a reason the story so obsesses over average dudes just trying to be average. Fascinating!

Of course, as Bina and others have pointed out, they’re not so much actual-average as trying to define average in their own image.

Speaking of fictional Everyman, Roosh’s story is actually interesting for what it unintentionally reveals. The resentment mongering and revenge aspects are obviously garbage, but the ridiculous paranoia about SJWs hides a deeper insecurities about class, gender and a changing economy.

Here we have an unskilled corporate drone pitted against a content creator who drives traffic–and therefore ad revenue and attention–online. The new economy means the Brads are getting their asses handed to them by the Katies in real life, and often in that gender configuration, too. Are the Katies digging up dirt against the Brads to get them fired from their meagre jobs? No, and that’s why the story deserves all the ridicule it gets and more. But are the better educated, more skilled, and more diverse Katies ascendent in an economy where the Brads will increasingly lose ground? Most likely.

In this context, Brad’s bigoted rant on Facebook reads like the defensiveness of an embattled class. Brad’s job could theoretically be given to a Mexican immigrant willing to work cheaper. Katie is not nearly as replaceable.

Brad isn’t a righteous avenger against evil SJWs. He’s a sad portrait of lower-middle-class America, unmoored from all certainty and cut off from the traditional sources of meaning and self-esteem. An increasingly wired and egalitarian America (Facebook, Gawker, women, Hispanics) WILL eat his lunch, not by maliciously conspiring against him but due to the forces of a changing economy.

I think this is the resentment underlying much of the MRM, and I also think they’d rather fantasize about murdering women because it’s easier to have a tangible enemy than admit their helplessness against the true enemy: the implacable force of a changing economy. And of course unscrupulous Katies like Roosh will be right there to cheer on and profit from this misdirected anger.

Orrrrr maybe it’s because women don’t appreciate being increasingly approached at random for rape by strange men who don’t wash? Just a wild guess. Because I’m a very polite person generally, but that sort of thing just brings out the bird in my two middle fingers.

The sequel The Purge: Anarchy is a much better movie than the first one, from what I have heard. Brutal social commentary as well – rich WASPs saying grace, just before they murder a man they ‘bought’ – WITH THE MACHETES STILL IN THEIR HANDS.

Also, Roosh is going full-blown Ayn Rand here – this piece of fiction THAT I WROTE agrees with my worldview, ergo my worldview is correct.

One day, I should write a story about how giving me free cheeseburgers cures cancer.

True. You cannot stop people from having sex with people they are attracted to. It has been tried for centuries. Get a group of people together and attractions and bonds are going to start developing. For those inclined to sexual attraction, that means hook ups are going to happen. There is no secret to it. That does not mean that they are going to pair off perfectly with every dude getting his allotted woman to have sex with whenever he feels like it. There is a reason it’s called “getting lucky”.

–exactly, these is incitement of murder of women. He’s counting that some unstable person will be moved by this and start shooting women. Remember the massacred of Enginerring female students in Canada? Please don’t stay silent and file reports with FBI and other agencies; they should be on his tail, before he causes people to be killed.

@Matthew the head of Mozilla resigned because he was outed as supporting an anti-gay law. Mozilla likes to position itself as a liberal, left leaning company. His views were not aligned with the company – or with their LGBT employees who quite rightly felt threatened. Freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom from consequences.

Well, horizontal racism is a thing. And our current racial categories get a little fuzzy around that part of the world, so it’s possible Roosh IDs as white, and that other white supremacists might even accept him as long as he’s appropriately hateful of everyone else.

Doesn’t this apply equally to men? They’re dealing with lots of women they don’t know too. Look at the internet – it provides a huge pool of strangers to send dick pics to and make rude asshole comments to on socal media, consequence-free. Look at how many more people there are in cities nowadays, and how much more mobile and busy everyone is. There are so many more opportunities to interact with strangers. Certain men are taking advantage of that to harass and catcall and cold-approach women. Thanks to anonymity and the diffusion of social networks, there are virtually no consequences for doing that.

A stronger case could be made that it’s these particular men, not women, that need to be confined and not allowed exposure to the wider world until they learn how to be civil.

(An even stronger case could be made that many of these particular guys already don’t have much contact with the wider world. Or reality.)
