Racist pickup guru Roosh Valizadeh announces plan to “destroy” Pax Dickinson critic with charges of racism

No, I think Roosh V has you beat in that category.
No, I think Roosh V has you beat in that category.

The Pax Dickinson Crisis seems to have abated somewhat, with postings on the #standwithpax hashtag on Twitter slowing to a trickle and the production of manosphere rants on the subject more or less grinding to a halt, at least for the moment.

But there is one manosphere ideologue who hasn’t given up the fight for injustice, and that’s the despicable “game” guru Roosh Valizadeh, who seems to have embarked on a crusade to ruin the life and career of the Valleywag/Gawker writer who first brought Dickinson’s terrible tweets to the attention of the wider world.

Yesterday, Roosh slammed out a viciously racist, misogynist, homophobic and even transphobic rant attempting to smear the writer, Nitasha Tiku, as … wait for it … a racist.

Today, he announced his plans to try to “destroy” her reputation on Google by permanently linking her to that (false) charge.

He explained his strategy, which he suggests will work on all liberal writers who might criticize men for racism or misogyny:

Unless she’s applying for a position at Jezebel, no respectable company will touch a toxic individual who has been linked to racism. They don’t want anyone who may cause controversy for them, and behind rape, nothing says controversy like race. …

It’s a slow-burn attack that will effectively punish these writers and scare their co-workers , whose income is low enough that they need to depend on corporate employment indefinitely, unless one day they get an original thought and can stay away from their iPhone long enough to write a book. It won’t work on the big liberal writers like Jessica Valenti or Naomi Wolf, since any attention they get just helps them sell more books, but it does work on the young girl out of college trying to win feminist brownie points by denouncing a man for being “creepy” based on a bad joke.

And then he compared it with something he seems to have a certain amount of experience with:

Having your name destroyed on Google is the internet version of getting raped.


There are more than a few practical problems with Roosh’s little plan, the most notable being that if some hypothetical hiring manager comes across Roosh’s attack on Tiku — or on any writer he’s tried to tar — all this manager will have to do is spend a minute skimming Roosh’s post to see that the charge is bullshit and that Roosh is himself a raving bigot.

And Roosh, if you’re trying to smear someone, it’s generally not good form to announce this plan publicly in a post that at times reads like the monologue of some cartoon supervillain.

In his piece, Roosh notes that “[n]ot long ago, Buzzfeed insinuated I was a rapist.” Well, it did more than that: It quoted Roosh admitting quite frankly that he’d had sex with a woman who was too intoxicated to consent.

I thought, in the interests of openness, it would be worth quoting that passage from Roosh — it’s in his e-book Bang Iceland — once again. Heck, I’ll even give the bit Buzzfeed quoted a little more context. I’ll let you decide if Roosh is a rapist or not.

I hooked her arm and off we went. The best thing that possibly could have happened was a “failed” afterparty. There had to be a moment when she realized that all her friends are gone and the only reasonable option left was to go home with a strange man she had just met.

While walking to my place, I realized how drunk she was. In America, having sex with her would have been rape, since she couldn’t legally give her consent. It didn’t help matters that I was relatively sober, but I can’t say I cared or even hesitated.

I won’t rationalize my actions, but having sex is what I do. If a girl is willing to walk home with me, she’s going to get the dick no matter how much she has drunk. I’ll protect myself by using a condom (most of the time), but I know that when it comes to sex, one ounce of hesitation or a feeling of morality will get me nothing.

Emphasis mine.

At this point even Pax Dickinson may want to distance himself from this creep.

So Roosh and his terrible clothes: I found a lesswrong thread saying that you should dress badly because it sends the message “I have better use of my time than thinking about what to wear. Since thinking about what to wear is generally a highly valuable use of time, perhaps I’m really productive at something else.”


Well why don’t we just prove, permenantly, that we are, in fact, more wrong?

And less wrong was brought up by either me or pecunium, but I think it was in response to someone using it as a citation for rape prevention being an intellectual topic as a security problem.

Katz, put down the Yudcultsky, step away from his minions, do not look at his minions, do not ever engage with them. Just say no.

Butbutbut…Proudly posted photos of shirtless guys crouching at their laptops with the names of message boards tattooed on their backs! I challenge you to find anything like that on Tumblr.

Just the other day I was talking with my friend, and we were singing, and I told him he broke my vocal cords. And he apologized, and I said, no, no, it’s my fault. You start way up there in the clouds, and I know you’re a tenor and I’m a bass, but I hear those high notes and all I can think is “Challenge Accepted.”


Yeah, it was a combination of people knowing she was Indian American and being racist about it, and a bunch of other people thinking she was an A-rab. 0_o

Fuck yes, the whole SHE’S A A-RAB SOREE MISS KAN-ZUSS was probably the thing that hurt worst.


I thought Conservapedia was the Cons … oh.

(There’s an episode of the Earth documentary narrated by Oprah Winfrey where she’s given a line calling frigate birds “the pirates of the sea.” I had to stop the video. Whoever wrote that should have been fired.

Incidentally, the version of Earth for the UK market is narrated by Signourney Weaver and has a few mentions of Vietnam that aren’t in the US version.)

BWAHAHAHAHA that tattoo … why didn’t he just have FUCKWIT written instead? Fewer letters, would have been cheaper and would have left no room for misinterpretation by the vast numbers of people who’ve never heard of this particular cult.

And thinking about what to wear takes up valuable time? Um, what? Five minutes a day? (That’s without feline help, of course.) Do these basement dwellers think anyone’d believe they’d ever dress smartly anyway?

Plus, I really hope Tattoo Twit spent the time it took to get the tattto done thinking Deep Thoughts about the singularity or whatever. Otherwise, shame, shame!

Forgot to add: being badly/sloppily/whatever dressed in public doesn’t send an “I’m thinking about much more important stuff ‘cos I have a Great Mind” message. It says couldn’t be bothered, or poor, or lazy slob, or doing outdoor labour. Badly dressed in whatever sense isn’t going to be taken as the mark of an intellectual. Well, unless you count the strange shirt/knitwear/tweed/bow tie combinations favoured by some English academics, but I suspect that’s not the sort of bad dressing these twits mean.

It takes an ESPECIALLY wretched tattoo to surprise me anymore. That one doesn’t shock me at all.

Also, didn’t get sucked into lesswrong, but godDAMN did I waste neuron time on that stupid basilisk thing. I STILL get flabbergasted by the very concept of such a thing.

Also WTF ‘if you’re into fashion, we can’t hang out’? Sneak loves dressing in bright colors and experimenting around; zie’s been in a perky pink Gothy phase for a while. I wish I could just have a wardrobe entirely of plaids and jeans. Shock of all shocks, we can still get along.



What’s really weird is people are honestly DEBATING it, and whether domesticating dogs count as AI and AAAAAAH WHAT IS THIS WHY IS THIS SEND HELP AAAAAAH

For reals, this is a good object lesson about how similar morons bloviating about nothing can sound to smart people discussing real high-level concepts. They’ve got themselves fooled and, honestly, I can see how they can fool other people, too: The combination of lingo, long chains of reasoning, and complete self-assurance gives the impression that the discussion must actually make sense somehow and you’re just missing something because it’s so very complex. But actually they’re just lost in their own rarefied echo chamber.


I’m glad you put that note in, katz – I was going to ask what on earth Pierre was doing there! 😀

Say, is sarumanatee related to hot buttered manatees? /ancient history
