The homophobic leader of a rape advocacy ‘neomasculinist’ online group is holding a worldwide meetup for straight men only this week. It’s his most ambitious global meet-up yet.
Daryush ‘Roosh’ Valizadeh, the US-based male supremacist and self-styled pick-up artist who leads anti-woman group Return of Kings, has announced plans for meet-ups in 165 cities all around the world from Australia to the UK.
Valizadeh has previously stated that ‘rape should be legal on private property’. In his books, he has admitted to raping drunk women. ‘It took four hours of foreplay and at least 30 repetitions of “No, Roosh, no” until she allowed my penis to enter her vagina. No means no, until it means yes,’ he wrote in one book.
In the planned meet-up for 6 February at 8pm local time, he said: ‘To identify your fellow tribesmen, ask the following question to a man you suspect is there for the meetup: “Do you know where I can find a pet shop?”…
‘If you ask someone for the pet shop and they appear confused or actually try to direct you to a real pet shop, they’re not there for the meetup.’
Valizadeh has repeatedly spoken against LGBTI people.
‘The legalization of gay marriage is a full frontal attack on heterosexual men,’ he wrote in one article on his website.
‘The societal reorganization that is necessary to allow gay marriage automatically elevates homosexuals to a special class of citizenry. To hoist one class you must demote another, meaning that heterosexual men are by default the enemies and oppressors of homosexuals.’
He added: ‘Young boys will be enthusiastically taught the superiority of homosexual lifestyles and the shameful privilege of heterosexuals, especially concerning the types of relationships that lead to nuclear, stable families. In addition, straight men will be forced under the barrel of the state’s gun to pay taxes for the AIDS drugs of gays, their impulsive sex changes, their mental and medical treatments resulting from sleeping with hundreds of partners, and also the salaries of politicians that continue to vote against traditional family values and basic morality standards.
‘Your tax money already goes to Planned Parenthood and pharmaceutical companies to sterilize the female population so what’s a few more billion more to empower gays to continue their bathhouse behavior?’
He also believes women should not be able to vote, trans woman who sleep with straight men are rapists and women are biologically determined to follow the orders of men.
Numerous petitions have been launched to stop these meet-ups from happening.
‘Our views are becoming known enough that we can ‘come out’ of the shadows and not have to hide behind a computer screen for fear of retaliation,’ Valizadeh said in a post on the website.
‘Let the sixth of February be a clear signal to all that we’re not going anywhere. We have finally arrived.’
