Before Roosh’s identity was uncovered he was the usual woman-hating Muslim troll who stalk and post hateful comments and threats against women online.
Roosh is from Armenian-Iranian Muslim background. His parents were first generation migrants to the U.S. Why should anyone be surprised of his deep-seated contempt and hatred of women? It’s his “culture” to conceive of women to be no more than cattle and covered prostitutes. It’s a culture where rape is more or less legal and and a culture where even 6-year-olds are not virgins. Aren’t we constantly told to respect Muslim culture and stop being hateful and bigoted against it?

The leader of a self-described neo-masculinist movement has cancelled a series of meetings planned for cities worldwide on Saturday because he “can no longer guarantee the safety or privacy of the men who want to attend”.
Daryush Valizadeh, who goes by the name Roosh V, posted a brief statement on Thursday apologising to his “supporters” whom he said were “let down by my decision”, but said he “could not stop men meeting in private groups”.
Meetings were planned in 43 countries around the world – including Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Shrewsbury, raising concern among police chiefs and MPs in the UK.
Nearly 80,000 people signed an online petition calling for Roosh V’s group, dubbed Return of Kings, to be banned from the UK after they advocated women being banned from voting, described a woman’s value as dependent on her “fertility and beauty”, and that women with eating disorders make the best girlfriends.
Before the events were cancelled, shadow Home Office minister Sarah Champion MP demanded that Theresa May take action against the group using hate crime laws.
“Rape of women has increased by 41% in the last year. I’m appalled that the government are sitting idly by whilst a group who believe women are pieces of meat without any rights are allowed to spread their poisonous ideology in the UK,” she said.
“As far as I’m concerned Return of Kings are encouraging violence against women and girls. This should be viewed as a hate crime and the government and police should use our existing laws to deal with it swiftly to show we won’t accept anyone promoting abuse.”
Northumbria’s police and crime commissioner, Vera Baird, had also written to the home secretary urging her to ban Roosh V from the UK, saying his “abhorrent” views have no place in Newcastle
