Here’s a nice throwback to when pickup artist Roosh Valizadeh returned from his unsuccessful trip to Canada, where he gave lectures on a half-baked philosophy he calls “neomasculinity.” Seemingly stunned by the intense opposition to his arrival in Canada — despite having coyly admitted to raping an intoxicated woman in Iceland and calling for the legalization of rape on private property — Roosh formulated his own theory as to why people hate him so much: Islamophobia. To hear Roosh tell it, his feminist (and other) critics simply hate him for having been raised by a conservative, Muslim father and for (supposedly) incorporating Islamic beliefs into his misogynist teachings.

Today a group of well-known white supremacists is gathering at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The conference, titled “Become Who We Are: The Identity and Spirit of Our People”, promises lectures by the nation’s leading racists, including men’s rights sympathizer Jack Donovan, former Klan lawyer Sam Dickson, retired California State University, Long Beach professor Kevin MacDonald, and National Policy Institute founder Richard B. Spencer — a man described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “a suit-and-tie version of the white supremacists of old, a kind of professional racist in khakis.” On October 24, 2015, two of these speakers, MacDonald and Spencer, appeared on the white supremacist Radix Podcast — a media outlet founded by Spencer.

In an article for A Voice for Men, men’s rights activist August Løvenskiolds offered college-bound men some advice on how to survive life on campus. Yes, survive. Løvenskiolds writes that because of pervasive anti-male bias, it truly is a matter of survival if you’re a male university student. In the article, entitled “Just survive somehow: A guide for college men”, Løvenskiolds wrote — in complete seriousness, mind you — that the “extreme feminist hostility to men on campus makes college a minefield for everyone, students, faculty and administration alike.” Continue reading “August Løvenskiolds: ‘Extreme Feminist Hostility to Men on Campus’ is Difficult to Survive”

White supremacist pickup guru Heartiste weighed in on the horrific massacre at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College last Monday, and helped spread the baseless rumor that the killer, 26-year-old Christopher Harper-Mercer, was a secret Muslim. He has precisely no evidence to draw this conclusion, but Heartiste nonetheless drew a connection between the stabbing of Alex Skarlatos — an Umpqua Community College student who helped thwart a terrorist attack on a French train — and the recent massacre. Continue reading “Heartiste Wonders Whether Mass Murderer Chris Harper-Mercer was an ‘Islamist Foot Soldier’”
In a video posted to his YouTube channel, men’s rights leader Paul Elam made statements characterizing the American family court system as “fascist” in nature, and likened men’s rights to the flight against chattel slavery. The video, entitled “Paul Elam on Domestic Violence and Gynocentrism”, shows Elam giving a lecture at Ryerson University. After discussing the double standards surrounding domestic violence (some, like the presumption that men cannot be victims, were actually valid), Elam took questions from the audience. One audience member went into a tirade about domestic violence laws, feminism, and fascism. Continue reading “Paul Elam: Family Courts are a ‘Fascist Place’ and Men’s Rightsers are like Abolitionists”
