Roosh V blames The Jews for “most modern evils,” including his own

Roosh and antisemitic writer E. Michael Jones

Two years ago, the infamous pickup artist Roosh Valizadeh announced that he was giving up his life of sinful fornication and getting himself right with God. Or at least right with a right-wing God, whom he apparently met in person after taking a megadose of ‘shrooms. (No, I’m not kidding.)

Now, instead of penning rapey pickup manuals, he writes posts on his blog with titles like “I Lived Most of My Life Under Demonic Influence,” “There is No Identity Without Christ,” and (somewhat unexpectedly) “Why I Don’t Trust American Dentists.”

Guess who else he doesn’t trust? The Jews.

Roosh has hated on Jews for a while now, and at one point he even got one of his tweets banned in France for promoting an antisemitic ASMR video. But he’s now getting serious about his antisemitism, blaming Jews for “most modern evils” from fornication to the Reformation.

In a recent post, Roosh reviews a book called “The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit” by a Catholic writer named E. Michael Jones, described by the Anti-Defamation League as a man “obsess[ed]” with “the damage that he believes Jews are inflicting on the Catholic Church and western civilization.”

Roosh’s book review — basically a series of long quotes from Jones’ book interspersed with relatively brief bits of editorializing from Roosh — blames Jews for everything from the Russian revolution to internet porn, and even for Roosh’s own fornication-heavy previous life.

If you decide to turn away from God, there will be a Jew to catch you with one of his degenerate movements, pseudo-intellectual ideologies, or money-making schemes. I fell for the Jewish trick of sexual liberation and paid dearly for it. Many others fall for greed, cosmopolitan living, new atheism, pornography, or the self-glorification that comes from Jewish-run social networking and dating apps. I must conclude that Jews are God’s punishment to those with weak faith. If you stray too far from God, you in essence become a Jew.

(Emphasis mine.)

In another section of the review, Roosh declares that:

Once you learn how to recognize Jewish names and physiognomy, it doesn’t take long to see that just about every moral degradation under the sun is spearheaded by Jews. There are certainly gentiles involved in such movements, but if Jews were wholly absent, many social revolutions and degeneracies would simply not exist.

There are a lot of similar proclamations in Roosh’s post. We “learn,” among other things, that:

Jews hate manual labor. … Unless you do manual labor, it could be argued that you are Jewish in character. …

In a society without tradition, rootless Jews can flourish. Their very first task when parasitizing a new nation is to break down the traditional order …

While many men have fantasies about defeating Jews or ridding them from the land, understand that they would never have gained power in the first place if people stayed close to God. Without faith, a man will not be able to resist the traps that the Jews set out for him, so the solution to constrain the Jew becomes a personal and then societal decision of faith.

Roosh is really cranking the antisemitism up to eleven.

Couldn’t he have found a God who was somewhat less of an asshole?

@Naglfar – Yeah, most people come away from a drug trip with a sense of interconnectedness and love for all beings. Roosh didn’t get that memo. After his conversion, he never once expressed remorse for all the women he manipulated, used, and outright raped. He only took down the Bang guides because they didn’t fit with his rebranding as spiritual authority. He disavowed them because they were damaging to men, but never said one word about how damaging they were to women. It’s clear he still holds women in contempt and regards them as obstacles. Whatever wisdom he received from the shrooms was very, very limited. Just enough to make him even more insufferable.

I think Roosh has created his God in his own image.

I wonder if this is actually a viable test for psychopathy. (Disclaimer: Not claiming that Doosh necessarily is one. It would take a scientific study to test the hypothesis, with qualified psychs to diagnose the study subjects.)

… anyone else finding the new(ish) placement of the comment form persistently irritating? Middle of the page where you can’t just control-end or biiig-swipe to the bottom to get to it? Also when quoting the most recent comment, a common case, they’re not adjacent, and in fact maximally far apart without putting the form at the top, where control-home would make it easy to find. So it’s a big scroll-and-scan to get to it with each separate snippet you’re copying and pasting …

You almost couldn’t find a worse placement for it if you intentionally tried. It’s the least easy thing about the site redesign to get used to, IMO.

I agree re: the comment box, I remember when the new layout was implemented I asked if the box could be moved back to where it was, but apparently not.

Just discovered something startling: there’s a fairly recent, fairly popular movie where about half the characters are trans, and probably most people who’ve seen it haven’t realized this.

The comment box placement is confusing to me too, and I’ve only been here since it was that way, so it’s not like I’m complaining about “the good old days”.

@Surplus: don’t keep us in suspense any longer!

RE: comment box. What I find really weird is that when you post a new comment, it appears at the top, before the comments that came before. And then you reload and it moves to the bottom.

I’d add my vote to putting the comments box below the last comment. It can get a bit fiddly scrolling up and down to cut and paste quotations.

Also, by the time I get up to the comments box, I’ve usually forgotten who I’m responding too and what I was actually going to say.

I would agree that I’d prefer to move the comment box to the bottom, but I asked David back when we got the new layout and he said it wasn’t possible. Maybe there is a way that we just don’t know?

The comment box at the bottom would be a lot better but I do like the dark mode option for this site. It’s better for me and makes it less likely to have a seizure

Even the producers probably didn’t intend the implications.

The movie is “Bee Movie”. Most of the characters are worker bees, complete with stingers — which makes them AFAB. Yet half appear to identify as masculine — presenting masculine in voice, being referred to with masculine pronouns, and so forth. The only logical inference is that roughly half the bee characters are trans men!

Doosh heading in the antisemitic direction isn’t a surprise. It’s an all too common path for those who get drawn into conspiracy theories, assuming of course the conspiracy theory they’re draw into isn’t antisemitic in the first place.

What about the two Ant movies? Don’t some ants have the same type of breeding/gender deal?

All conspiracy theories are antisemitic in the first place.

Re: Unintended trans characters, the cartoon Regular Show features a protagonist who’s a her male anthropomorphic bluejay. His romantic interest is a lady cardinal with red plumage and a crest. When fans pointed out to the showrunners that only AMAB cardinals are red and crested, they said they hadn’t know that, but agreed that clearly she must be trans, so that’s canon now.

I’ve seen that movie (though it’s been a while) but never really thought of it that way. A movie that I have seen discussed as having significant numbers of trans characters is Jurassic Park, and in that case it appears to be deliberate. The scientists originally announce that all the dinosaurs on the island are AFAB, but it is later revealed that the frog DNA spliced in allowed them to become male.

@ naglfar

There’s also the bit with the helicopter seatbelt. Malcolm, somehow, ends up with two female catches; but he still manages to splice them together to make it work. Nice bit of foreshadowing.

@Naglfar – This made me laugh:

Are you maybe thinking of The Satanic Temple? They’re the ones who performed a pink mass to make Fred Phelps’s mothers ghost gay

Not that it’s nice to mock someone about a dead relative. But it’s just so ridiculous and over-the-top (and the Temple seems to have chosen a deserving target).

Oh yes, thanks for the other article linked. I forgot that I commented on it (it was 5 years ago).

I just hope I wasn’t conflating those guys’ hatred for Middle Eastern people and/or Muslims with something Roosh himself said. I mean, he’s said a lot of awful shit, but I don’t want to misrepresent people.

Roosh Nostalgia Moment (I know, that sounds weird): About 5 years ago, I went to a demonstration against his antifeminism and “joking” rape advocacy, since he was leading some meetup in Montreal. And that night, a woman he tried picking up at a bar recognized him and spilled beer on his head. (I didn’t see that, but much fun was made of it on WHTM since Roosh was extremely whiny about it.)

@Surplus – I like your logic 🙂

Reminds me too of Gary Larson, The Far Side cartoonist, who mentioned getting a lot mail correcting him for a cartoon where the “husband” mosquito comes home to his “wife” and says something like, “Tough day at work, I must have infected half the city.” Their nitpick was that only the female mosquitos bite. Larson wrote, “But it’s perfectly fine that the mosquitos wear clothes, speak English, etc.” [again, paraphrased]

(Actually, he was probably embarrassed, too – he liked to be scientifically accurate.)

Yeah, he probably was, especially considering his environmentalist work.

Have you read There’s a Hair in my Dirt!: A Worm’s Story by any chance? Larson very obviously had no love for those who were all for protecting only the cute animals and who didn’t understand how things actually worked…

That’s an excellent observation about Bee Movie. Reminds me that all the ostrich ballerinas (that is, they are presented as ballerinas) in Fantasia are male (although as there is no dialogue we don’t know their pronouns). And yes, this must also apply to the all-female worker ants in Antz. Not sure about the characters in A Bug’s Life?

The analogy have its limit tho. Or rather, question what you think define a gender. Bee workers are the typical example of something I would define as agender (and asexual). On the other hand, their roles as caretakers of their sisters *is* traditionaly within the feminine roles. They go on more “traditional” masculine jobs like foraging later in their life cycle.

Bees also have the thing that biological males and females are *wildly* different, including having only a single set of chromosomes for the males. Maybe it’s overthinking it, but you could describe them as having three sex (queen, worker, males), and describe the subcategory of workers as separate gender, since it’s not physical but influe a lot on their behavior and expectations.

(I am talking of traditional western gender roles. I am well aware that in actual reality, they varied a lot, and there have been plenty of warrior and forager women)

@Katherine the Adequate: The next time Roosh V says something that makes sense will be the first time. His worldview has all the consistency of melted chocolate. If I were the gambling type I’d bet even money that this time next year he’ll be identifying as a Marxist. That guy changes his persona more often than I change the liner in my wastebasket(and I change my wastebasket liner every other day).

No, but it looks like fun, thanks!

I got my anecdote from A Prehistory of the Far Side (which also has a story of how the captions of two of his cartoons were switched with Family Circus ones, with surreal results)

@epitome of incomprehensibility:
Oh, it was fun, yes. I especially liked the page about the human Harriet talking about how romantic the birdsong was… followed by seeing the translations, in which most of the birdsong translated as stuff like ‘MY nest, stay away!’ and various birds cussing each other out.

As I said, Larson obviously really didn’t like people who overly romanticized nature. There’s a reason the story is told from the point of the worms, one of the lowest parts of the food chain but also a part without which a lot of modern plant life wouldn’t be anywhere near as viable…
