Twitter is abuzz today with talk of “globohomo psyops” after discovering a tweet from our old friend Roosh V, the rapey pickup-artist-turned-crackpot-moralist, claiming that the first-ever black hole photo that took over the internet yesterday was some sort of “globohomo” hoax designed to make women look good.
This is hardly the first time Roosh has inveighed against the alleged evils of globohomoism.
Sometimes he mixes and matches his conspiracy theories. Here he claims the Christchurch mosque shootings were an Israeli false flag designed to benefit the Jews and the globohomos at once.
But the idea that evil globohomo forces rule the world is older than that. I’m not sure who originated this unique portmanteau word — a mashup of anti-Semitism and homophobia that supposedly stands for “global homogenization” — but I first ran across it on Chateau Heartiste, a blog written by an exceedingly racist pickup artist who’s been a friend of Roosh’s for something like a decade now — and who’s utterly obsessed with all things globohomo.
Now the term has been picked up not only by Roosh but by a wide assortment of alt-rightists and other shitposters.
So without further ado, here are are a bunch of other things that weirdo right-wing shitposters blame on the globohomos.
Wars to spread sodomy:
The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965:
High interest rates:
Poor character design in the videogame Borderlands 3:
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization:
The thwarting of this woman’s dream of living amongst goats:
Gay marriage, trans bathrooms and boycotting the NRA?
Socialism, yet also libertarianism:
Vegetables as food:
Soy lattes, and somehow also PayPal?
I guess this guy thinks that “lattes” rhymes with “states?”
“Homo harassment” and other gay stuff:
Garfield (the cat, not the president):
I have no idea what is even going on here:
I hope this all clears things up for you.
