#gamergate antifeminism block that metaphor citation needed davis aurini drama kings dude you've got no fucking idea what you're talking about entitled babies evil SJWs grandiosity irony alert men who should not ever be with women ever none dare call it conspiracy post contains sarcasm PUA reactionary bullshit red pill return of kings rhymes with roosh

Davis Aurini takes aim at lizard people, media plotters, and other enemies of Roosh

What is love? Lizard don't hurt me.
What is love? Lizard don’t hurt me.

I realize that most of you are probably feeling as Rooshed-out as I am, and would like to move on to posts with a very low percentage of Roosh content, if any at all.

But I feel I would be remiss not to bring to your attention a post by our old friend, the urban cowboy/white nationalist (on paper) Davis M.J. Aurini, published on Roosh’s Return of Kings site on Friday. Entitled “Why International Meetup Day Was Cancelled,” it is perhaps the dumbest thing anyone has yet or will ever write on the subject.

Mr. Aurini starts off by positing the existence of a vast, Australia-wide media conspiracy against his buddy Roosh, a conspiracy showing the “extreme cunning” of the enemies of all that is good and true:

During Gamgergate [sic] it was revealed that the gaming press were coordinating behind the scenes, deciding which topics would be discussed and promoted, and which ones would be censored and dropped into the memory hole. Given that on February 2nd six nearly identical articles were published throughout the Australian press within hours of one another, all describing Return of Kings as a “Rape Group,” it is a near certainty that the Australian press is similarly controlled by collusion between the reporters on secret message boards.

Emphasis mine.

His proof of this conspiracy is a blurry image showing that a number of Australian papers RAN ARTICLES ABOUT ROOSH WITH IDENTICAL TITLES on the same day.

Which might be evidence of a vast conspiracy amongst Australian journalists except for the fact that all of the newspapers in question are owned by the same media conglomerate and regularly run the exact same articles as one another, much in the way that newspapers across the US regularly run identical stories by the Associated Press.

A conspiracy so immense that proof of it is blurry!
A conspiracy so immense that proof of it is blurry!

Indeed, if you look carefully at the blurry proof Aurini offers as proof of conspiracy, you’ll see that some of the papers in question also ran identical articles on what Myers and David Jones — apparently big Australian department store chains? — are planning to do to usher in a new fashion season.

I’m pretty sure that even the most cunning SJWs could not dream up a conspiracy so deliciously eeeevil that it would require not only media manipulation of news about Roosh but also unanimity of coverage on Australian department store fashion as well.

Don’t anyone mention this to Aurini, but I have proof that NEARLY IDENTICAL “WIZARD OF ID” COMICS are running today in newspapers around the world! COLLUSION AT ITS MOST NEFARIOUS!!!

Aurini then offers this, well, unique explanation of the behavior of Roosh’s enemies, which for some reason involves flocks of lizard people.

The behaviour we’ve witnessed over the past week is perfectly explained by flocks of narcissists, organized online, exercising vicious cunning with a human’s capacity for abstract thought. They are the metaphorical lizard people, dressed in skin suits, unreasonable and unrepentant.

Lizard people, you say?

Their goal is pandemonium. So long as it is chaotic, degraded, cheap, infectious, and ugly, they will endorse it, and they will use any tactic to achieve it: violence, lies, false philosophies, and pretend victimhood. They will be crying and vulnerable one moment, and coldly murderous the next. They are vicious, they are legion, and they’re organized as only animals who have known sin could possibly be.

We see you.

So apparently Aurini has discovered peyote?

Aurini continues bumbling his way through more failed metaphors, at one point declaring that

Through introspection we will hear the voice of our conductor, and learn what song it is that we are meant to sing.

After saying a whole lot of nothing, he winds up the piece with a warning for all of us lizard people who’ve been so darn mean to poor old Roosh.

A final word for all of those who attacked us, slandered us, and threatened us; we, the men who would defend you against those who would enslave and exploit you; we who fight, not for ourselves, but for the future.

Alas, Aurini’s “final word” is actually several hundred.

We will remember who you are, and we are a larger chorus than you know.

That ex-boyfriend who stole your heart? One of us. That charming married man at your office, with the beautiful wife? One of us. That wise mentor who helped you more than you’ll than you’ll ever know? One of us.

Huh. I rather doubt that the lesbian cultural history professor I had as an advisor in grad school — if anyone was ever my mentor, it was probably her — reads Return of Kings.

The battle for civilization will be neither quick nor easy. We will win, but not without great struggle and many casualties amongst those who refused to pick a side. So remember something: when you or your womenfolk are being viciously assaulted and raped by third world savages whom you defended while decrying us—or by some gestapo thug, whom you empowered to oppress us, their breath rancid with garlic and rotting teeth—

That is the future you chose by standing against men of virtue.

Yep, another far-right fantasy of a righteous apocalypse that will put all of us SJWs in their place. I’m just a little surprised to see Aurini — a white nationalist Holocaust denier who has more than a few kind things to say about Hitler — depicting the Gestapo as the bad guys.

The lizard people are definitely metaphorical though? I’d bet Aurini believes in literal lizard people and he’s just waiting for the right moment to inform both of his readers.

Extreme congrats to WHtM for reporting on this Douchebage par excellence and for wading into, armpit high wellies, goggles and clothes peg (nose) on I imagine, the open sewers of the Boy-O-spherette. What wonderful creatures are to be found there!

Davis Aurini is of course one of the prime examples: much, much funnier than Paul Elam and Louchy put together.

Contrasting these two bits of rhetoric makes me suspect that Aurini is one of the lizard people, and is admitting it to us.

Come on, Aurini! Name the other lizard people.

I wonder whether Aurini roughs out his prose in plain form, and then empurples it, or whether it comes out pre-purpled?

Also, is he implying that he and Roosh are without sin? Like, you know, the Virgin Mary?

Also also, still giggling about “lizard don’t hurt me”!

Flocks of narcissists? That seems unlikely. Narcissists are notoriously difficult to work with; I can’t imagine that a whole flock could successfully coordinate a conspiracy. It would be like herd…ing…

Have your years of courting misogynists and racists finally paid off with a fleeting moment of fame? Has the establishment noticed you, ridiculed you, and gone back to ignoring you? Do you need further attention-seeking activities to keep yourself in the public eye? Then Davis Aurini (skull operator; cigarette holder; whisky aeration unit) can help drag your embarrassment out that little bit longer.

Alas, Aurini’s “final word” is actually several hundred.

Dramatic reading!

The Lizard People might be a reference to the lunacy of David Icke, who literally (not metaphorically) believes the world is secretly controlled by shapeshifting lizards.

As far as mentors reading RoK — well, as a Medievalist focusing on Anglo-Saxon lit, one of my great heroes is (or maybe I should say was) Allen Frantzen. And it just came out that he’s an MRA-sympathizing douche who apparently reads RoK and possibly stole material for one of his books from a female colleague.

Is there a word for “intense concentration of pomposity and unwarranted self-importance”?

I’m not good at words, but as a scientist I can measure things. I propose that the SI unit of measure for this be the milliAurini, or mAu for short.

For example, one might say “Elam normally holds steady at about 600 milliAurinis, but this latest blog post of his has risen to almost 700”, or “Mencius Moldbug has experienced a decline from 750mAu to about 400mAu over the course of the last few years.”

Now all we need is a portable Auriniometer. It’ll be shaped like a skull, naturally.

Is the song something along the lines of “The Lurkers Support Me in E-mail”?

ETA – For those unfamiliar with Jo Walton’s little ditty (sung to the tune of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”):

The Lurkers support me in e-mail
They all think I’m great don’t you know.
You posters just don’t understand me
But soon you will reap what you sow.

Lurkers, lurkers, lurkers support me, you’ll see, you’ll see
Off in e-mail the lurkers support me, you’ll see.

The lurkers support me in e-mail
“So why don’t they post?” you all cry
They’re scared of your hostile intentions
They just can’t be as brave as I.

Lurkers, lurkers, lurkers support me, you’ll see, you’ll see
Off in e-mail the lurkers support me, you’ll see.

One day I’ll round up all my lurkers
We’ll have a newsgroup of our own
Without all this flak from you morons
My lurkers will post round my throne.

Lurkers, lurkers, lurkers support me, you’ll see, you’ll see
Off in e-mail the lurkers support me, you’ll see.

Look at all that whiny desperation garnished with impotent fear tactics and convoluted purple prose.

Also note how, as he issues his dire warnings (which read to me like something Rorschach from Watchmen would say after going on a drinking bender), he changes tack to just focus on men, as women clearly can’t logic. Thus we get a tirade of; Men must side with him or else foreigners and SJWs are gonna rape their wimminz! Make decisions for the wimminz (because they can’t make any themselves) or else bad things! Be a misogynist prick or else! We’ve surely got trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for pool!

It’s so ham handed as to boggle the mind.

He can’t help but throw in that “your women” thing at the end, even though it implies that earlier, it was a dude who had his heart stolen by a boyfriend. Odd thing for an avowed anti-gay (alleged) thinker to say.

Or, I suppose, it could be read that straight women are also concerned with “their” women being raped, which is just a weird way to phrase feminism (but would explain a lot, come to think of it, if they really think feminism is a sort of Marxist system where women own each other as a sort of means of production).

In reality, I’m sure it’s just that it’s beneath him to read things over before posting them.

I’m not quite sure that “flocks” is the proper collective noun for narcissists. A grandiosity of narcissists? A fuckwit of narcissists?

Through introspection we will hear the voice of our conductor, and learn what song it is that we are meant to sing.

Now there’s a sentence that puts the “urination” in “aurination”. Note how the conductor is only available through introspection, not through listening to other people.

Your personal conductor is keeping you way out of tune and several measures behind the rest of humanity, pal. Try to keep up.

Let’s be scientific here. You can’t know that everything he’s ever written is at 1000 milliAurinis. I’m sure there is a shopping list somewhere that is somewhat lower.

Although:

1 carton of white (white!) milk (on paper)
1 virtuous cheese
3 enslaved paprikas
lots of male meat
a bunch of savage bananas

edit @ Moggie:
the nice people at the Bureau des Poids et Mesures certainly don’t deserve to have a reference aurini haranguing them at the level of 1000 mAur.

I am entirely in favour of doing as Moggie suggests: we need to store Davis Aurini in a soundproofed room in Paris. We may need to freeze him in carbonite too.

(/s)

I would argue that his famous “most decadent since the fall of Rome” statement should be the reference point. It’s possible that the real-life Aurini could drop below this Platonic level, or even (Katie preserve us) rise above it.
