Roosh Valizadeh has finally gotten the boot from YouTube for “repeated or severe violations” of the site’s rules on hate speech. The final straw was apparently a livestream in which he suggested that Bratz dolls (remember them?) are a plot to “groom” young girls, masterminded by an evil Jewish CEO.
the kind of dolls you would buy to groom a young child in order to sexually abuse them. … You would teach ‘Hey, look, this is the doll, this is how you dress. Oh, you’re dressing like that.’ I mean, this is what I think. This is a grooming tool.
He then went on to talk about the “engorged” nose and “snake-like eyes” of the Jewish CEO of the company that makes Bratz dolls.
Roosh, naturally, feels that he is being persecuted … for being Christian.
In a post on his blog, he indignantly denies engaging in hate speech … before engaging in more hate speech. In the same sentence.
I presume I was banned for “encouraging hatred” (i.e. speaking the truth) about sodomites who groom children and those who worship in the synagogues of Satan.
“Synagogue of Satan” is a favorite antisemitic reference to Jews. And of course “sodomite” speaks for itself.
Roosh has been heartened, it appears, by the support he’s gotten from one of the internet’s most notorious antisemites, Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer.
Anglin, in a Daily Stormer post, offers some kind words to the newly banned Roosh, from someone who has been banned many times:
I hope that Roosh is able to find a similar niche [as I have], as I’ve found his Christian journey to be very inspiring. He’s not disposable in the way that someone like Stefan Molyneux is. If Molyneux is removed from your life, you don’t miss him. Roosh has become one of only a very small handful of living people, with Sam Hyde, weev, Kantbot, Jesse Lee Peterson and Tucker Carlson who can actually stir me to think about something from a different angle. He’s offering something more than just entertainment or a series of facts.
I would call it something different than entertainment or facts, but not something more.
Roosh, for his part, vows to continue on.
I intend to take the path of an e-hermit. I will hunker down onto my own domain and forum and host as much content as I can, including videos.
I can only wish him the worst of luck.
