I just finished watching RooshV’s Press Conference after he canceled an official Return of Kings meetup.
One of the things that Roosh says over and over again is that the people in the room (the media) are liars.
Like I said, I watched the press conference. So I figured I would look at how the media themselves covered it.
Standing up for Bill Cosby, Roosh V also said the rape allegations were “weird” and claimed he didn’t think his accusers were being “honest”.
Roosh did not “Stand Up For” Bill Cosby. He said he thought it was strange how women from 20 years ago were coming out just now. He also said he wasn’t a lawyer and hadn’t seen all of the evidence. He gave an opinion.
But backtracking on himself, the contentious figure continued to put the blame on women as victims of rape rather than their perpetrators.
Roosh was very clear — if he left his key in his BMW in a sketchy area of town, he’s not to blame for his car being stolen, but rational people would tell him not to leave his key in his car.
From a Matt Ramos article on Vice:
A Maryland basement dweller managed to convince media pundits, freaked-out feminists, a half-dozen American mayors, and 46,965 Canadians who signed a Change.org petition to keep Roosh V out of their country, that he’s a credible threat.
Roosh lives in Europe. Anyone who has done just a little bit of research on him would know that. He also didn’t persuade anyone that he’s a “threat” to anything.
The article above also claims that Roosh works near a golf course. They link to an article on buzzfeed.com that is an interview with Tuthmosis, a totally different person. The interviewer asks what his day-to-day life is like at Return of Kings, and he mentions working out of a nice office building in the city.
Why does this matter? Roosh was asked about it in the press conference and had no idea what the reporter was talking about. The reporter did not believe him. The reporter, however, had not done his homework. And the Vice article doubles down:
Though Valizadeh has claimed to be a resident of Europe, with a penthouse office in the United States overlooking golf course, creating content for his millions of devotees, it appears that facade is crumbling.
Back to Vice.
Valizadeh was forced to “cancel” the meet-ups over “safety concerns.”
I wonder how many death threats Matt Ramos has received over the past week. I wonder how many countries have talked about banning Matt Ramos from their borders. My guess is 0, and is just as likely that Matt Ramos has never had to compete for anything in his life.
I asked Valizadeh if he’d be willing to donate some of the large amounts of money he brags about on his Instagram (which has currently less than 800 followers) to a rape crisis center to offset some of the ill-will he’s created.
OK, let me get this straight, Matt. You’re writing and lying about Roosh. You even attended his press conference, and you’re going to mock him for his less than 800 followers on Instagram?
Could it be that most of Roosh’s audience doesn’t Instagram much?
What’s the relevance of his Instagram follower count. Oh yeah, you want to discredit him. Fine. Let’s look at your Twitter follower count, Matt.
424 idiots follow Matt Ramos as of Feb 8 2016.
If you’re reading this blog (a blog that I intend to update more often) then you likely already get your news from alternative sources.
Regardless of your opinion of Roosh, it’s imperative that we all start calling big media out on their collective bullshit. We all have busy lives and we can’t all become experts in every single story that comes out. That’s what journalism is for. Seriously, share this stuff with your friends. Show Roosh’s statements followed by the printed lies about him. Again, the target today is Roosh, but the target tomorrow could be your friends or family.
Unlike Trump, though, Valizadeh can’t back up his bluster with actual crowds.
Yet in the same articles most of them talk about the protest that was a few blocks away from the hotel where Roosh gave his press conference.
If Roosh is harmless, why give him coverage? If Roosh is harmless, why protest? If the media is being sincere (they aren’t), then by giving him coverage, they are wasting my time as a reader. They are literally saying, “There’s this troll who lives in his mom’s basement and he is pro-rape but no one listens to him but we need filler material.” Why would I want to read your publication?
But by giving him coverage and lying about him, they reveal that they are very, very afraid that the narrative is failing, and they are relying upon the ignorance of their readership to not call them out. In other words, they’re still insulting their readers.
At least when I insult my readership, I’m crystal clear about it.
