Sleazy pickup artist and rape advocate Roosh Valizadeh is continuing his international tour with stops in Montreal and Toronto next month. Currently there is a petition to prevent Roosh from entering the country on the grounds that he spreads unlawful hate speech. (To Americans this is surely a strange concept, since the First Amendment’s guarantees of freedom of speech and expression shield even the most awful people from prosecution even when they say the most heinous things.) Whether or not Roosh is blocked at the border remains to be seen, but in honor of his attempt to spread his deranged “philosophy” worldwide, here’s a Throwback Thursday item from when Roosh officially split with his beloved Red Pill ideology.
Back in May, Roosh, angered at having been attacked as a “fraud” and “gay” by members of the Red Pill subreddit, officially denounced the movement he took credit for creating. With all the indignity he could muster, Roosh fired back: “I can only say how can you attack your own father? How can you attack someone — the language that you speak everyday, the improved sex life that you now have, that has my seed written in it.”
The Red Pill is often said to come from the three R’s: Roosh, Roissy, and Rollo. So when I see now that the Red Pill has come out against me — calling me a fraud, even gay — I can only say how can you attack your own father? How can you attack someone — the language that you speak everyday, the improved sex life that you now have, that has my seed written in it.
You are attacking someone who has shaped your worldview. Is that ungrateful? Weird? Comical? Sad? I don’t know. But it’s weird to see people who have been so greatly affected, not just by me but men who came from the platforms that I made, all of the sudden forgetting where they came from.
Roosh announced that he has now embraced a new ideology, one that is superior to the Red Pill. This new ideology, which he calls “neomasculinity”, differs from the Red Pill in that it “puts more importance in tradition, patriarchy, nuclear family”, it is “more political”, and it “has a stronger anti-socialist platform.”
Roosh hopes that all the undesirable people who embraced Red Pill ideology in the past will be purged from “neomasculinity”, including gay men. “The Red Pill has…catered to gay men,” he said with obvious disgust in his voice, “helping gay men use the Red Pill to have butt sex with other gay men.” Stating that this was not what he envisioned when he invented the Red Pill, Roosh assured his audience once again that there “will be no gays in neomasculinity.”
You may be wondering what is the differences [sic] between the Red Pill and neomasculinity. Neomasculinity puts more importance in tradition, patriarchy, nuclear family. It is more political. It has a stronger anti-socialist platform, and it leaves space open for this to provide a deeper political platform.
It leaves room for more spirituality, for men who believe in a higher being. It places less importance on the theory of evolution.
Also, there will be no homosexuals in neomasculinity. The Red Pill has…catered to gay men, helping gay men use the Red Pill to have butt sex with other gay men. That’s not what I envisioned the Red Pill to be…helping gays. There will be no gays in neomasculinity. None.
