andrew anglin anti-Semitism daily stormer rhymes with roosh

Roosh V is booted from YouTube, but at least the Daily Stormer has his back

By David Futrelle

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.

In the video, the former Pickup Artist who has transformed himself into a fanatical Christian and rabid antisemite described the dolls as

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.

Isn’t the point of being a hermit not to interact with other people in any way? I know he’s just trying to be a martyr, but being a recluse on social media seems a tad oxymoronic. Hermits aren’t just regular people but with a smaller audience.

I imagine something like this would be the logical endpoint of his personal development:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simeon_Stylites

In short, a famous Christian beard weirdo of the eastern non-Chalcedonian (“monophysitic”) persuasion

The first pillar that Simeon occupied was little more than 3 meters (10 ft). He later moved his platform to others, the last in the series reportedly more than 15 meters (50 ft) from the ground.[4] At the top of the pillar was a platform, which is believed to have been about one square meter and surrounded by a baluster.

Note the incidental pun with “platform”

Even on the highest of his columns, Simeon was not withdrawn from the world. If anything, the new pillar attracted even more people, both pilgrims who had earlier visited him and sightseers as well. Simeon was available each afternoon to talk with visitors. By means of a ladder, visitors were able to ascend within speaking distance.

Although:

In contrast to the extreme austerity that he practised, his preaching conveyed temperance and compassion, and was marked with common sense and freedom from fanaticism.

Also, Simeon may have died from lack of personal hygiene:

The progress of an ulcer in his thigh might shorten, but it could not disturb, this celestial life; and the patient Hermit expired, without descending from his column.[8]

Honestly, a pillar would just give Roosh more attention. Maybe we can convince him to do the opposite and dig a hole in the ground and make his hermitage there. It can’t be all that different from his mother’s basement in Silver Spring.

@Naglfar:

“Conservatism is the new punk rock”

I’m sorry, my brain just tripped over that and did a pratfall that caused me to spend several seconds trying to get it running again.

I mean, ‘punk’ is inherently anti-authoritarian; any authority. (Which is why arguments over who was really punk can get so fractious.) Most modern ‘Conservatives’ seem to really be reactionaries and (proto-)fascists, and they’re just fine with authoritarianism as long as (they can be made to believe) it’s on their side. They are the opposite of punk. Even the older-guard conservatives, the ‘Red Tories’ as we’d call them here, the sorts of people who were supposedly fine with progressive change as long as it was slow and controlled… well, they certainly weren’t ‘punk’ either. They’re also a dying breed, even in Canada.

Really, it’s pretty much impossible to have an organized punk movement anyway. A ‘punk’ political party is right out.

@Lumipuna:
Ahhh, monophysitism. I’m having flashbacks to the card game Credo. (The cover of which had a group of priests arguing over ‘Same substance!’ ‘Similar substance!’ ‘Different substance!’)

I remember hearing about Simeon, yes. He’s pretty much the archetype of the Christian version of the ‘guru’.

Yup, that was also my reaction when I first heard someone say that. Despite the inherent contradictions, many conservatives seem to unironically think they’re rebels of some sort when they’re busy licking the boots of authority.

One analysis I’ve seen is that conservatives feel like rebels because they’re rebelling against Mommy (“Eat your vegetables. Wash your hands. Be nice to the other kids.”) while worshiping Daddy.

@Amtep, Naglfar:
Either that or it’s the whole ‘when you’re used to society catering to you, moves towards equality feel like a personal attack’ sort of entitlement. As far as they’re concerned the world is against them because they’re only getting 80% of the pie rather than 100%.

That sounds scarily accurate TBH.

Edit: in fact I’d be super grateful if you could dig up the link to said analysis. This sounds like something I’d want to share widely.

Um. wait a minute:

the kind of dolls you would buy to groom a young child in order to sexually abuse them.

Who is this ‘you?’

Those dolls were deeply disturbing, and sure, the increasing pink/blue apartheid in children’s shopping is worth a comment. But I think Roosh is identifying himself as a ‘grooming toy’ shopper.

Yes, that part does seem to be very much him projecting.

How typical of Roosh V to blame somebody else for a problem he created.

I’m a bit behind the times here, I admit, but. . .

Bratz dolls?

Seriously?

The Bratz dolls are literally just the old She-Ra molds with different secondaries (hair, wardrobe, accessories, playsets).

Or maybe the old Bandai Sailor Moon molds.

Either way, that same specific stylized design of the female form has been around the toy market for a long time.
