Even Return of Kings Has Trouble Pretending to be Interested in Roosh V’s “Neomasculinity”

red-pillsROOSH2

Pickup scuzzball Roosh V’s attempts to rebrand himself as a prophet of “neomasculinity” are not going well.

Several months ago, you may recall, Roosh said an official goodbye to the “red pill,” declaring that, though the term had “served its use in the past five years,” it wasn’t providing deeper answers to aging douchebags like Roosh who are desperately afraid that they’ve turned into the creepy old dude hanging out at the bar. (I’m very loosely paraphrasing here.)

The solution to this dilemma? What Roosh calls the philosophy of “neomasculinity,” which is basically like the red pill, only, like, deeper or something. And totally not open to “homosexuals.” 

Trouble is, no one really seems all that interested in taking up the banner of neomasculinity.

Including whoever is writing the headlines at Roosh’s Return of Kings blog.

You see, I noticed something a little odd today on Viva La Manosphere, a website that assembles the RSS feeds of assorted manosphere blogs into a handy and regularly updated set of links. There were two links to the same post at RoK:

rooshneomasc

Now, Viva La Manosphere posts its headlines newest-to-oldest, so what this indicates is that the headline writer at RoK first posted the article as “Why Christianity Is Not An Enemy Of The Red Pill,” then remembered (or was reminded) that Roosh had officially renounced “the red pill” for “neomasculinity — and quickly updated the title of the post.

D’oh!

It’s almost as though “neomasculinity” is just a warmed-over version of the same crap Roosh and his pals have been peddling for years.

Reading Hail to the Gynocracy’s article was quite the terrifying insight into Roosh’s ego, so thanks for linking that David.

I mean, Roosh is taking credit for creating the Red Pill Philosophy, even though it’s been around for decades longer than he’s been alive. I mean wow.

Us white guys invented everything; even the stuff that predates us. It’s an ontological paradox type of thing.

Back in caveman times a bunch of guys were taking a break from mammoth hunting.

They realised that life would be more comfortable if there were certain things that didn’t exist yet.

Collectively they came up with the idea that it would be great if there was a thing where guys came up with ideas for stuff that would be useful.

And that’s how guys invented inventing.

…are they aware the the concept of neo-masculinity already exists? It’s called ‘masculinity studies’ and the whole point of it is to work to relieve men of the need to live up to unrealistic and overtly masculine stereotypes!

Think Ryan Gosling and Joseph-Gordon Levitt, two men who actively champion the concept of a (new) masculinity, or a fluidity of masculinity that allows men to be who they choose, without MRA/PUA/MGTOW knobs dictating to them about what a ‘real man’ is.

Like all of his other bullshit ideas (if you can call them that), they are 20 years behind the actual ‘thinkers’; the proactive (rather than reactive) members of society.

Zounds! Roosk is an irrelevance and ROK writers are all heretics who must needs bow down and pray worshipfuly to our almighty Lord. Why is he hiding the truth about the John Lennon assassination? The powers that be silenced him because the Beatles were about to reunite to record a Gregorian chant album. Ye my comrades, though art wise to abandon and condemn the neomasculinity apocrypha; rather be ye authentic prayer warriors to God, the sun, and the Holy Paraclete; also is it not suspicious that Beethoven became deaf just as he was building new horizons in music; is that not what Rosh should be writing about? Please consider.

It’s also ripped off from the book, THE WAY OF MEN by Jack Donovan, which Roosh has strongly recommended. Ironically, Donovan is gay.

Does this mean that Milo Yiannopoulos isn’t welcome in Valizadeh’s little playhouse?

(Re the Christianity thing: £10 says his preferred version of Christianity is Russian Orthodoxy. There’s some shit going down in Russia nowadays which is just terrifyingly unhealthy, and a lot of that is centred around the church.)

Paul McCartney predicted the new beautiful direction of Russian orthodoxy in Back in the USSR; Vladimir Putin secretly visited England as a teenager and helped write the song and others for The Beatles. Shakespeare also made a secret visit to Russia in the year 1600 where he met with a good sage who inspired him to write plays against feminism; however, the Royal Secret Police endeavored most voraciously to stop him. Christopher Marlowe was involved in this but he was assassinated before he could reveal it.

When did the prefix “neo” stop meaning “new”? Lately it seems to mean “even worse than”.

@Buttercup:
The prefix “neo-“, in the sense of “a more extreme revival of”, has a long and storied history. The earliest two I know of are:

Neoplatonism in the third century AD.
<Neoconfucianism in the ninth century AD.

So it’s been going on for a little while now.

Charles Manson was originally a spy for the Vatican but then turned on them. Thomas Aquinas wrote coded language in the Summa Theologicum which predicteth and established with forebearance and much patience that there would be a great idolator against the Church.

I have veritable mountains of evidence. And know ye not that I am like unto the profit Isaiah, bringing down angelic proclamanations? But more importantly, my knowledge is based on research from G.

I’ll give our latest troll props for at least appearing to read the comments directed at him, as he does incorporate names that have been mentioned into his strange and unparseable tirades.

That said, I can’t really be bothered to read or digest his ramblings. Not that it matters, as all he seems to have to say is “something something celebrity something something the illuminati”.

Surprisingly inoffensive, or at least so incomprehensible as to not appear to be terrible, but not very interesting. 6/10.

Has anyone seen this yet? Rooshy boy’s video of Poznan now that it’s degenerated worse than Toronto. I’ve also been reading his travel forums (the only part of his empire I find in any way interesting). One constant thread is how [insert ex-poosy-paradise here] is now getting degenerate and harder to game and the women are getting fatter etc.

Two things stand out:

1. Thanks to cheap flights, East Europe is filling up with “Thirsty Men” who are trying to pickup every good looking woman on the streets, thus ruining their game. Yet they never look in the mirror and see that they are those thirsty men who are ruining it for everyone else.

2. Places become degenerate as the wimmin copy the Zionist influenced godless materialism of the West and the wimmin become more like American “Beach Whales”. Nothing about how said countries are embracing freedom and don’t need to do sexual favors for some quick moolah anymore.
There’s a post how Moldova got ruined by giving their people freedom to travel in the EU. Now the local guys are driving fast cars and the wimmin ain’t interested in jumping on foreign dick for cigarette money anymore.

Ah, my favourite form of trollling. The sheer imagination, wit and unbridled creative talent that it takes to spew out whatever random crap comes off the top of your head is surely matched only by the writers of Family Guy cutaway gags.

I haven’t been this impressed since I saw Ang Lee playing shuffleboard with a zebra on the Starship Enterprise.

“Does this mean that Milo Yiannopoulos isn’t welcome in Valizadeh’s little playhouse?”

“Re the Christianity thing: £10 says his preferred version of Christianity is Russian Orthodoxy”

Roosh’s mom is Armenian Orthodox Christian and his father is Shia Muslim. He seems to be flirting with both in that he attributes his “traditionally andro-centric” ideas to the influence of his Shia father but he sometimes disses Islam in favor of Christianity and/or “western values” in his blogs.

At other times he comes off as anti-religion altogether.

He’s just confused.
