The Southern Poverty Law Center Is Now Writing About Pickup Artists as Hate Groups

The Southern Poverty Law Center, founded in 1971 as a civil rights law firm, has released its latest "Intelligence Report" on hate groups in the United States. This year's report contains a new category: the Manosphere. 

From the SPLC's introduction to the misogyny report

The so-called “manosphere” is peopled with hundreds of websites, blogs and forums dedicated to savaging feminists in particular and women, very typically American women, in general. Although some of the sites make an attempt at civility and try to back their arguments with facts, they are almost all thick with misogynistic attacks that can be astounding for the guttural hatred they express. What follows are brief descriptions of a dozen of these sites. Another resource is the Man Boobz website (manboobz.com), a humorous pro-feminist blog (its tagline is “Misogyny: I Mock It”) that keeps a close eye on these and many other woman-hating sites.

It is truly sublime that a group the DHS cited in its controversial report on right-wing terrorism now turns to a website called "Man Boobz" for its hate-group reporting. More sublime is the fact that the SPLC has listed a D.C.-area pickup artist who goes by RooshV in its list of women-haters: 

Roosh Vörek is a Maryland-raised PUA (“pick up artist”) whose specialty is sex with foreign women; his blog is a sales vehicle for his books like Bang: The Pick Up Bible and Bang Iceland: How to Sleep With Icelandic Women in Iceland, which one Icelandic feminist group described as a “rape guide.” Vörek likes to talk about his many “notches” (seductions) and such things as “American cunts who I want to hate fuck.” He adds: “I’ll be the first to admit that many of my bangs in the United States were hate fucks. The masculine attitude and lack of care these women put into their style or hair irritated me, so I made it a point to fuck them and never call again.”

Take note, America: Having consensual sex (Roosh is not a rapist, but a seducer*) with someone you don't actually like and then never calling her/him again will land you in a reputation-ruining** SPLC report. 

*and a pig 

**In case that part's not clear: I'm not talking about social capital, but the fact that the SPLC's Intelligence Report gets sent to every law enforcement agency in the country.

    SPLC goes from fighting George Wallace to fighting Tucker Max. Can you get any more pathetic?

  • juris imprudent||

    I give them another couple of years and they ought to suck themselves right up through their collective asshole into oblivion.

  • ||

    Obama and his drone pilots are not on the list for executing Americans in foreign countries and setting up a plan to execute more.

  • Killazontherun||

    Fighting George Wallace? Morris Dees worked for him.

  • ||

    True enough. I just couldn't think of another figure from 1972.

  • ||

    Sammy Davis, Jr.

  • Jeffersonian||

    There he was, with that club in his hand, sternly eying his foe. The arc of the club whooshed in the summer air, his foe grimacing at the hideous crack it made on contact...

    Then the ball arced up, up and through the window of a nearby home, possibly inhabited by an African-American family, terrorizing them to the point of panic.

    Only the full weight of the Central State can prevent such atrocities from happening again and again in Amerikkka.

  • ||

    The $PLC always goes on and on about "hate".

    But the $PLC has special rules for who gets tagged with the stigma of "hate".

    Black people aren't called "haters" and "racists".

    Asian people aren't called "haters" and "racists".

    ONLY White people and pro-White groups are called "haters" and "racists".

    Any White who objects to this stigmatization is often called anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    The $PLC says it's "anti-hate", but what it really is is anti-White.

    "Anti-hate" is just a code word for anti-White.

  • ||

    "Dog whistle" is how the cool kidz say "code word".

  • elian||

    Im a single bisexual girl,but i am confident, Ijust wanna to find people who like me,be friends,start a relationship,dating,even marrige....and my friend recommended===datebi.c/o/m'It is the best place for looking for bisexual men & women dating relationship or marriage.Hope you all find your true love..

  • ||

    The MRA is a dangerous group. I fell into their crosshairs and was cared for my life for months. This PUA angle is a distraction. The MRAs made my life a living hell and threatened me with bodily harm.

    Also, I met Tucker Max once and while did not impress me, he is certainly not one of these guys. The real MRM is a highly dangerous hate group, I assure you.

  • ||

    *SCARED for my life, sorry for the typo.

  • STEVE SMITH||

    Hi Rectal!

  • FreeMan||

    There's nothing hateful about not wanting to be treated as a second-class citizen.

  • Brenda||

    Shocked that "ASKMEN" isn't on that list.

  • anon||

    Roosh's tips are common sense guide to picking up young women. Everyone who has been to univeristy knows college aged women mostly want to be treated badly by an alpha male.

  • Commentariat GOP Shill||

    God, cram it with the "Alpha Male" "treat like crap" fucking frat boy malarkey.

  • Killazontherun||

    'cause the nerds can't beat the women off of them, right?

    Human Nature (based in being an animal ffs!) > Feminist ideology.

  • Commentariat GOP Shill||

    'cause the nerds can't beat the women off of them, right?

    It's because they don't speak or otherwise lack passable social skills. It is not because they fail to tell a woman "go make me a sandwich".

  • Killazontherun||

    It's because they don't speak or otherwise lack passable social skills.

    That comes from clamming up after bitter experience with girls in elementary and junior high school. Girls at that age are evil, and ruin boys who are not callous enough to develop a thick skin when dealing with them.

    BYW, I tell my wife to make me a sandwich all the time. You should try her Ruben, It's fucking awesome. I would have her make you one if you ever came over.

  • ||

    Girls at that age are evil, and ruin boys who are not callous enough to develop a thick skin when dealing with them.

    That is a great point.

  • ||

    I was terribly shy as a teenager, but it didn't stop me from hooking up with girls - they came after me with telephone calls or just blurting out, "so do you have a girlfriend?".

    After college, I noticed a cooling down of that effect. Not that I was on the make anymore, but as I got older (uglier?) and out of a large social scene, there were less and less females after me. Of course being in a long-term relationship has pretty much dashed that old life.

  • ||

    "Girls at that age are evil"
    You must not have had a brother.
    I had one, he had a sister. I think he turned out to be more sensitive than me.

  • Red Rocks Rockin||

    The goony hipsters often manage to hook up with the truly broken women on college campuses nationwide; they're typically the "FUCK YOU DAD" types who think bringing home a passive-aggressive, unwashed whigger will show how independent she is. The more "normal" females love them some alpha beef, though.

  • Tonio||

    Sometimes, it's just to piss dad off, RRR...

  • ||

    If you have figured out what women actually want, I salute you.

    I have never bought into the idea there was one sure way to pick up women. Women are far too unpredictable for that. Things that got me in some women' pants have driven others off. I could never see a rhyme or reason to it other than being whinny and insecure was always sure to fail.

  • RBS||

    Pretty much, it's a crap shoot.

  • Library Desk Graffiti||

    "being whiny and insecure was always sure to fail"

    ^^^^^^^

    the crux of what these guys teach, with varying degrees of superfluous fluff

  • ||

    "If you have figured out what women actually want, I salute you."

    That's simple. Whatever they don't have.

    If they're married, they're jealous of the women who are single. If they're single, they're jealous of the women who are married. If they have kids, they're jealous of the women who don't. And vice versa.

    Once you understand that women are all about the envy of other women then you will have a lot easier time understanding them.

  • ||

    There is a lot to that locomotive breath.,

  • Red Rocks Rockin||

    Once you understand that women are all about the envy of other women then you will have a lot easier time understanding them.

    Steve Sailer once said something to the effect that a lot of public policy is driven by women hating other women.

  • Ryan||

    It's frankly easy to learn what women want and give it to them. However, guys who do that are typically very insecure and hopelessly neurotic.

    The unfortunate thing about that is that most women are insecure and neurotic too, so there just aren't a lot of great options for guys who are looking for great options.

  • ||

    Girls would date me because their fathers would buy them a new car if the girl would break-up with me.

  • ||

    And if they don't, the alpha 'beef' will beat them around a little bit till they warm up, right? Seriously, Alpha males are screwed up.

  • ||

    But they are not really "alpha". They are just bullies which is anything but. I have known plenty of people I would avoid getting into a physical conflict with. And none of them would fit the description of "alpha" being given here.

    You are a pretty sorry example of a man if your idea of being tough is proving yourself is shitting on some insecure college girl.

  • ||

    No, they're not really alpha. But with easy women, they can fake it long enough to get laid. And genuine alphas don't put the hurt on imposters like they used to. When Julius Caesar (a real alpha) ruled, anyone who falsely claimed to be a Roman citizen was put to death.

  • ||

    The nerds can't beat the **good** women off. Vapid bimbos on the other hand...

  • Ken||

    Pick Up Artists and their devotees strike me as men who are aroused by organized and systematic belittling of woman, and of bragging about the process to each other, and who pursue that arousal even though by doing so they run a slight risk of having to have sex with a woman.

  • Red Rocks Rockin||

    So what does it say about women that so many of them fall for that act?

  • ||

    How many actually do? Most of what men say about women is total bullshit. I don't believe these clowns get laid half as much as they claim.

  • Devil's Advocate||

    Plus it only has to work once to count as a success.

  • ||

    It really is just a numbers racket. If you hit on enough women, eventually you will find one who either likes you or is desperate enough to sleep with you.

    Most single men who don't get laid don't get laid because they are bothered by rejection and don't hit on enough women. Hit on enough of them and not care when they say no, and you will eventually get one into bed. Never was there a more truthful or descriptive term than "getting lucky". That is really all it is.

  • T||

    True dat. I watched a buddy of mine in the Army hit on every single woman in the bar one night. He'd strike out, come back to the table to mope for long enough to take a pull or two off his drink, and he'd be off again. It was a case study in persistence. Didn't owrk that night, but with that kind of work ethic, he did well enough.

  • ||

    Good Army buddy you've got there. Maybe he'll get AIDs and then pass it off to many other woman - since it ain't no man thing to get tested, dawg!

  • ||

    A buddy of mine also has a habit of hitting on every single woman in a bar.

    I can't tell you the number of times he's almost gotten lynched by all the women's boyfriends...

  • ||

    I call it the "Shotgun effect" - just fire into the woods and you'll be bound to hit something after enough rounds.

    I have a friend (well, associate) who is overweight and not that smart. I've seen him in action at the bar, he just hits on girls, gets shot down repeatedly, but keeps on going. One night we went to the bar and ended back at his place with two girls. This same guy married a girl who was 12 years his junior - they ended up in a divorce after the thin veneer wore off.

  • DBN||

    This is pretty much it; the only thing that I can add is that my friends who used to do this stuff also had lower standards, and not just for physical appearance. They would pursue women wiht obvious mental disorders or horrible personalities that I could barely stand to share a room with.

  • ||

    That too DBN. A true hound will fuck anything. And having low standards will also help get the better ones. Nothing drives a women more nuts than ignoring her and hitting on her ugly wing man.

  • Red Rocks Rockin||

    Nothing drives a women more nuts than ignoring her and hitting on her ugly wing man.

    I saw this first hand during tech school when I was in the Air Force. I was talking to this chick about her going to her second schoolhouse over at Ft. Meade. Her buddy, who was far cuter, literally pushed herself in between us and said, "I'm leaving, too!" as if I'd give a shit that some female who I had never spoken with up to that point was going somewhere else.

    Sometimes I wonder just how easy it would be to cause chaos in these female-run office environments if you just started spreading rumors about all of them to each other.

  • ||

    This is absolutely true. Had a buddy from high school that was exactly like this - he'd simply hit on anything with a vagina in the room. No shame or embarrassment to him whatsoever, and he got laid more than anyone I've ever known. There was nothing remarkable about this guy whatsoever. Not particularly good looking, kind of chunky, not exceptionally charming or witty, not rich. He probably struck out 98 out of 100 times - but those 100 attempts would all be in the same weekend.

  • RBS||

    This.

  • AlmightyJB||

    My wife and I see young women out with douchbags all of the time. Not only do they either get the ignore treatment or the shit treatment, at the end of the night the girls pick up the tab. Me wife just wants to slap the girls upside th ehead for being so stupid.

  • ||

    I see the same thing. And my wife is like den mother to any number of really attractive and together women she knows through work or such but do not have boyfriends or significant others.

    I really think it is her way of torturing me and settling whatever frictions there are in our relationships. Not sure if it is just that we live in DC, but there seems to be a shortage of under 35 single, non douche bag men.

  • Dan||

    East coast women need to spend more time in Southern California bars, which are like 75% dick...

  • Commentariat GOP Shill||

    Of course it doesn't work. Those who get laid don't have to brag about it. People who brag about it are trying to fulfill themselves through peer validation, something someone is truly self-confident would never need to do.

  • ||

    Kind of like people who sell books claiming to know how to corner the real estate market. If I knew how to make money in real estate or some other get rich quick scheme that worked, I would be hanging out in my flat in Monaco right now with my Czech girlfriend. I wouldn't have the time to write a book about it.

    Same here. If you are actually out getting laid, you really don't have the time to bother bragging about it and telling everyone else your "secrets".

  • ||

    And if you're really living the libertarian life, you don't have time to leave comments here.

  • Cry more nerd||

    "Of course it doesn't work. Those who get laid don't have to brag about it."

    Is this what you losers tell yourselves to make yourselves feel better about not getting any ass?

    How sad for you.

    "People who brag about it are trying to fulfill themselves through peer validation, something someone is truly self-confident would never need to do."

    Is this also what you losers tell yourselves to make yourselves feel better about not getting any ass?

    How sad for you.

  • Commentariat GOP Shill||

    Oh Troy, I really didn't mean to upset you so much, sweetie. Calm down.

  • Cry more nerd||

    " really didn't mean to upset you so much, sweetie"

    Does it really bother you THAT much that I've always gotten laid more than you and always will?

    Let it go.

  • ||

    GOP shill sounds like that asshole you know who never got laid and always acted like it was everyone else's fault.

    Newsflash GOP shill, anyone who has ever been to a frat party knows being an asshole works, and the reason you never got pussy is that no one wanted to give you any.

  • Commentariat GOP Shill||

    Epi, I am going to be charitable and assume that this is a spoof of you.

  • ||

    Nope, I just know that anytime I was a round a fraternity, the stuff you said was pretty frequently proven to be bullshit.

  • Commentariat GOP Shill||

    Nope, I just know that anytime I was a round a fraternity, the stuff you said was pretty frequently proven to be bullshit.

    Wow, well color me convinced. You have such a history of logical argumentation that it certainly must be true that when you and your buttbuddies were bragging to each other, you never exaggerated or anything.

  • Cry more nerd||

    Chicks like different stuff at different ages.

    Morons like "Commentariat GOP Shill" flatly refuse to admit treating college chicks like shit gets results, and that dudes who talk about it actually do get ass.

    He thinks that because HE doesn't talk about it, he is some kind of signpost for the male gender.

    Why, I have no idea.

  • ||

    Cry more nerd,

    I am sorry your dick is so small. I hear they have drugs for that now.

  • Cry more nerd||

    "I hear they have drugs for that now."

    And I'm sure you listen very closely.

    No. Sadly God didn't short change me like he apparently did you.

  • Cry more nerd||

    "Sadly God didn't short change me like he apparently did you."

    I love the grown up attempt at "i know you are but what am I" after I made a fool of you.

    Wow. Needs moar caps. I guess that touched a nerve. The truth always does.

    Seriously, don't you understand that acting like this just tells the world how small your dick is? NTTAWWT. God only deals out so many cards.

  • rather||

    The truth always does.

    Like you talking about his dick so much?

    I kind of suspected it was you rather. Bravo on your performance art.

  • rather||

    I kind of suspected it was you rather.

    It wasn't, I just appreciate seeing someone else take you down a peg.

    Seriously, how do you have time to belittle another man about his penis because you dislike him?

    Your life is that small?

  • ||

    You really have a unique understanding of the voice of the dickless, emasculated liberal male.

  • rather||

    the dickless, emasculated liberal male.

    Which describes this womanizer how?

    You can't even think straight.

  • ||

    You created the character rather. You tell me. Is internet tough guy, I treat women like shit a liberal? OR have you not thought that deeply about the character?

  • rather||

    I think anyone who thinks that the person you were talking to is a liberal isn't bright.

    You seem to think that...

  • ||

    You are the one doing the posting rather. You created him. So you tell us. He seems to have a similar voice to your liberal griefer. And that guy is clearly a dickless emasculated liberal. Is this character different? I lose sometimes. You tell us so we can keep track of who is who.

  • rather||

    How do you have time to post this stuff every day John?

  • ||

    Maybe I am interested in your dick. You are such a man. Such an internet tough guy. Now comes the part when you call everyone gay.

    You have spent the first half of the thread over compensating for your small dick. Now you can spend the rest of the thread over compensating for you latent homosexuality. NTTAWWT.

  • Cry more nerd||

    "Maybe"?

    laughing@you.now

  • ||

    Better to laugh at me than cry over the sorry state of your manhood.

  • EDG reppin' LBC||

    Anecdotally, it was my experience that treating college girls like shit resulted in scoring. However, by the time I was 25, most females I encountered wanted to be treated respectfully.

  • Cry more nerd||

    "Chicks like different stuff at different ages."

    "However, by the time I was 25, most females I encountered wanted to be treated respectfully."

    Despite the fact that you may think I'm an asshole, I'll take that as backup and say fuck you John, keep thinking about my dick, I'm out.

  • ||

    I don't you are an asshole Cry More Nerd. I think you are funny and pathetic.

  • rather||

    I don't you are an asshole Cry More Nerd.

    So upset (or interested in his dick) that you can't even type coherently.

  • ||

    Or rather. I am so sorry for you. No one gets your performance art and humor but me. I am the only one who understands your White Indian character. You are truly an unappreciated genius.

  • rather||

    Lost to a frat boy.

  • ||

    LBC

    That is pretty much true. And you really don't want the ones who want to be treated like shit. They come with too much maintenance.

  • The illusive Man||

    I have come to the conclusion you two need to get a room and get It over with.
    As for the topic, All I know Is this. Like most self respecting men, I would love to wake up In a bed filled with women a Blanket of women. Now dose that make me a bad guy?
    If anything It simply makes me a Heterosexual man.

  • ||

    I wasn't married, I would get a room with Rather. She is so funny. Nothing is sexier than a sense of humor.

  • ||

    Took you that long to get out of college?

  • protefeed||

    Some women in college have self-esteem and standards, and treating them like shit doesn't work.

    Other women in college go for the alpha-acting assholes.

    Usually they grow out of that as they age, and decide to go for men who treat them fairly well.

    Usually.

  • ||

    There's a bias in that.

    Being an asshole works at a frat party on girls who GO to those type of parties.

  • ||

    I'm sorry to break this to you, kid. But, your blow-up doll really doesn't count.

    +100 Bill.

    Did you see how John spun out of control when he couldn't get a response when he was made a fool of?

    It was awesome.

  • ||

    Oh rather. You don't like being made fun of do you? You seem rather sensitive to it. I don't why. We only laugh at you and your characters because they are funny. That is why you create them isn't it? For our entertainment? You know liven things up a bit?

  • rather||

    You don't like being made fun of do you?

    Says the guy who spun out of control when he lost a 4th grade level insult fight on the internet.

    Come on rather. Can you post some more White Indian say stuff for us? We love that. I really think you have the makings of an act there.

    ^^^^^^

    You are disappointing me rather. It is usually harder to get you to drop the mask. You are nothing if not in character most days. But today you revealed yourself pretty quick.

  • rather||

    Except it wasn't me, that's waht is great.

    You really were getting schooled by what appeared to be a frat boy who was better with women than you.

    And you hate it.

    And your life is so petty and small that the only thing you can do is post until you feel your boardmates will ignore how badly you got embarassed.

    All day long, this is your life.

  • rather||

    And your life is so petty and small that the only thing you can do is post until you feel your boardmates will ignore how badly you got embarassed.

    I know.

    I love you rather. You are my favorite comedian ever. The characters you come up with are just awesome. White Indian say you the best rather. Agricultural City State never appreciate your humor.

  • The Mad Titan||

    Isn't saying someone has a tiny dick kind of the inverse equivalent of talking about getting laid?

    It was the canned response I recall more than any other when guys who were on the sidelines were hating on guys getting action.

    To be honest, I'm kind of tired of both cliches. There are dudes who get action on the sly like my one buddy, then there are dudes who absolutely get it a ton, and let you know about it.

    And on the flipside, there are women who are into dudes who aren't into them.

    I know, unequivocally, that there are guys who get laid by being rude. I know it.

    But it seems to wear off, and attract increasingly less desirable women as it does.

    But denying it? PFFTTT silliness.

  • ||

    There certainly are women like that Titan. And they tend to be crazy. Unless you just really are a man whore and have no desire for anything but cheap sex, those kinds of women tend to be more trouble than they are worth. That wearing off that you are talking about is called growing up.

    And yeah, the small dick cliche is right up there with the tough guy I bang women cliche. But sometimes a little audience participation helps rather's act.

  • The Mad Titan||

    And they tend to be crazy.

    Not in my experience.

    That wearing off that you are talking about is called growing up.

    Thanks for being condescending John, I wasn't sure whether to ignore you until now.

  • ||

    You misunderstand me Titan. The wearing off is not you growing up. It is women growing up and no longer finding being abused to be so fun. I didn't mean to imply you needed to grow up. My apologies for the misunderstanding.

    And yes, women past a certain age who enjoy men who treat them badly are whacked in the head.

  • Dave||

    You people are idiots.

  • Tacos mmm...||

    This is the worst subthread ever.

  • ||

    That's BS and peer pressuring anon. Women are so fragile and naive by the time they get to college - then sororities and fraternities screw their minds over, from public nudity in front of men under the guise of 'hazing' to all sorts of really shady scenarios. Screw alpha males, they're the dumbest and most destructive things on the planets.

  • Concern troll||

    I'm so concerned.

  • Audrey the Liberal||

    Everyone who has been to univeristy knows college aged women mostly want to be treated badly by an alpha male.

    And people wonder why there are so few libertarian women.

  • Devil's Advocate||

    Yes, I quite agree. It is certainly a good thing that "liberal" men never, ever say douche-y things on the internet. The world is definitely a better place for it.

  • Audrey the Liberal||

    It is certainly a good thing that "liberal" men never, ever say douche-y things on the internet.

    Whilst swatting straw-men with great vigor can sometimes be good exercise, the fact is I never said such a thing. Oh by the way, the word "liberal" in my name referrers to classical liberalism i.e. libertarianism.

  • Tim||

    the word "liberal" in my name referrers to classical liberalism i.e. libertarianism.

    That's what they always say.

  • ||

    Hey mr anon...

    If you actually read the research, instead of believing the Roosh-scammers who are making a buck off of gullible idiots like you, you would learn the following.

    -> Yes it is true that sociopaths "get laid more"

    -> BUT it's only because they try more and handle rejection better

    That's it. I know that for geeks and nerds it's comforting to tell yourself "Oh women like jerks" because it makes you feel better (I know, I was there when I young naive sucker like you).

    But it's simple, stop reading that PUA crap, get social skills, get confidence, shower, and ask girls out.

    There is no secret. Or, if there is a "secret of the jerks" it's that they leave the house, talk to chicks and ask them out. That's it.

  • South||

    insecure much?

  • ||

    Hmm. Looks to me like the SPLC is a hate group.

    They should do a report.

  • ||

    Militias are also hate groups apparently. Who knew?

    They allow comments in support of the murder of South African whites - apparently S.A. white farmers deserve what they get as punishment for apartheid.

    But no, not a hate group. Just a "justice" group. Note how they never classify anything other than white-on-minority incidents as "hate crimes."

    Couldn't the SPLC satisfy its urges, yet retain some small shred of credibility, by creating a separate "sad and pretty fucking creepy" list?

  • Don Coyote||

    Well pointed!

    Yeah, "knocks" and "disses" miss the point of why what works works. Catch the lady's interest. Be different. "Lean out." Give her little adventures. If she asks you how she looks, don't use ordinary words like "pretty," choose something more specific and appropriate, "elegant."

    In my single days I found it extremely effective to talk to a new woman as if she was some female "buddy" I was already cheerfully in "The Friend Zone" with. If she mentioned not wanting a relationship or sex, I would laugh and be clear about not knowing her yet, and treated it like she was trying for it. I put the woman in the position of needing my approval for sex, or else passively just being my friend, which was good too because other women want to know why I have all these pretty friends around me.

    As ridiculous as it all sounds, it works.

    The SPLC is full of fucking pussy betas who can't even get laid with a law degree. That is what this is about. Men with useless penises.

    Only other douchebags who divide the world in "Alphas" and "Betas". It's like the Whiteboy Guidosphere, only with moar Mountain Dew.

    Whiteboy Guidosphere

    So much hate and righteous fervor. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. Hate has its uses.

  • Hugh Akston||

    Wait, is there a Guido Guidosphere? Is it a conceptual internetz thing, or is it an actual giant hamster ball in downtown Newark?

  • Killazontherun||

    I was hoping CGOPShill would elaborate on that.

  • Commentariat GOP Shill||

    There is a Guido Guidosphere, but it's sort of like Jersey Brigadoon: it emerges from the hazy mists of toxic waste dumps every 100 years to remind Americans how very lucky we are.

    For all you know I am a flaming queer rather. It is not like anyone on this board will care.

  • rather||

    I don't either, it just has nothing to do with the discussion.

  • ||

    I think the fact that you created a griefer character who obviously has no dick is very relevant.

  • rather||

    Only because you have no life, spend hours every day posting on this web board, and are consumed by thoughts of dicks.

  • ||

    Gotta be consumed by something rather.

  • rather||

    Look at that, I actually got to him.

    The truth hurts John. Post more and prove me right.

  • ||

    LOL. You are killing me today rather. I have to admit, dickless tough guy was a little tiresome at first. But you have recovered and brought your art to a new level. I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. This is actually funnier than White Indian.

  • rather||

    All day long, posting to prove he has something better to do with his life than posting.

  • ||

    You are just so funny rather. The stuff you post on here is such comedy gold, I would hate to miss any of it.

  • rather||

    Doth protest too much...

  • ||

    It is true. You are just being modest. I will admit it took me a while to get it. But once it dawned on me what you are doing, I laughed.

  • ||

    Personally, I'm more amused by the fact that he (CMN) thinks the fact that he "scores" with his blow-up doll on a semi-regular basis (I don't think I want to know about the times he gets shot down) means he's some sort of Lothario.

  • The audience ||

    We're more amused by the fact that you're so decrepit and pathetic that you made the same 1950's blow up doll joke twice.

    You don't get laid and never have, we get it.

  • ||

    Oh rather, you forgot to accuse him of being gay. Remember character is a self hating latent homosexual. So he will generally accuse people of being gay when he is confronted.

  • ||

    But, you assume that I'm posting for your amusement. Frankly, I could care less for that either way.

    Or the Cat Lady's amusement.

    That's what she has the Tabbies for.

    SPLC has become a spy and informant for the fascist police state. It has turned into a civil "wrongs" group that should be investigating itself.

  • Tonio||

    Worse than that, Fly. They define hate so that government agencies can cite their work. Much like the inquisition determined who was a heretic, then turned those people over to the civil authorities for torture or execution.

  • ||

    Take note, America: Having consensual sex (Roosh is not a rapist, but a seducer) with someone you don't actually like and then never calling her/him again will land you in a reputation-ruining SPLC report.

    Seems to me this Roosh guy might see it as a reputation-enhancing SPLC report.

    If this guy's writing stuff like that in his books, for all we know, he might appreciate the free publicity.

    Oh, also, when it comes to their spotlighting on racism, does the SPLC just focus on illegal acts of violence? Or do they focus on hate speech, too?

    Because if they're treating purveyor's of misogyny the same way they treat purveyor's of racism, then aren't you just criticizing their whole mission?

  • ||

    Because if they're treating purveyors of misogyny the same way they treat purveyors of racism, then aren't you just criticizing their whole mission?

    I mean, if misogyny is something that people should be free to criticize, then what's wrong with criticizing someone who brags about having sex with women and because he hates them and then treating them shabbily?

    If someone else, say, bragged about discriminating against people because of his hate for their race--why shouldn't people be free to criticize that?

    What's the difference between them?

  • ||

    The only big deal here is sending people's names to law enforcement. Sending suspected criminals' names, sure, but sending names just because they try to be dicks to get laid? Overkill.

  • ||

    If that's what's going on, then that is problematic.

    The level of civility would skyrocket, and every time someone commented at Hit & Run, it would help further promote the site (and libertarianism).

    People's expectations regarding anonymity would change, but isn't that the whole idea?

    Believe me, learning not to be afraid that people will find out who you are and what you think? Isn't the worst thing that can happen to you. And having to take your own reputation into consideration when you comment, since it's under your own name, that's probably not gonna kill anybody either.

    It is funny that they chose the word "hate" too. I mean, it seems to me that, especially nowadays, racism has a lot more to do with stupidity and misunderstanding than hate. I could be wrong. I don't know a lot of overt racists.

  • sarcasmic||

    It's about creating an ad hominem argument to divert attention from whatever the disagreement is about, and to the person who disagrees.

    Then it becomes a situation where the person who disagrees is engaging in "hate", and the only way they can prove that they are not engaging in "hate" is to agree.

    SPLC has been an incredibly successful organization. It has consistently solved the poverty problems of its directors.

    In some ways you have to respect them. They have managed to make millions fleecing stupid liberals. If I didn't know any better, I would say they are secret monocle wearing libertarians. Not only do they take millions in donations that could otherwise go to liberal political causes, but also, they use that money that they don't pocket to run an organization that does nothing but discredit and embarrass liberals.

    Womyn never lie about rape because no woman ever truly "consents" to sex with a man. She is pressured into having sex by the mysoginistic patriarchal society in which we live which encourages womyn to have sex with men instead of embracing the natural order of sex with strap-on sporting bulldykes. The only exception is if the man calls her the next day. No phone call = rape.

    Which side hier is the hurtful one?

    And does Dan Savage's advice count?

    I am so confused about this.

  • ||

    Word is that Limbaugh is telling the advertisers who pulled out but now want back to go fuck themselves.

  • sarcasmic||

    It's not like he lacks "fuck you" money.

  • ||

    He has the audience. If anything this whole thing has increased his audience. And as long as he has an audience, people are going to want to advertise.

  • sarcasmic||

    You missed my point which is that he can afford to turn away advertisers.

  • ||

    I was agreeing with you. Yeah, even if he didn't have the audience, his contract is guaranteed.

  • ||

    Both are true. When you are considered evil incarnate, is there such thing as bad press?

  • anarch||

    But are these ladies hatistes?

  • ||

    Just hookers. I have nothing against hookers, especially the ones who don't have the skills to make it elsewhere. But these strike me as especially distasteful. They are just lazy college girls who would rather work on their backs than take a job they feel is beneath them.

  • anarch||

    I meant, how does SPLC distinguish them ethically from pick-up mashers?

  • ||

    Women can't hate. In SPLC land, women are always victims. Those women are victims of the horrible education system that forces girls to sell themselves to get an education.

  • anarch||

    And how do they classify "twinkies"?

    (I place it in quotes so you know I learned about them only through reading, thank you very much.)

  • juris imprudent||

    Still got that Southern "protect our [white] women" thang huh?

  • Jeffersonian||

    Cue Sheriff Bart.

  • ||

    Ladies: Don't take a job that's beneath you. Take a job that's beneath me.

  • ||

    Don't forget, according to the SPLC, the "Live and Let Live" attitude prevalent in the Mountain West makes it a hotbed of hate-mongering.

    So we've got that going for us.

  • Fly||

    Next thing, SPLC will be encouraging Obomba to drone-strike Idaho.

  • ||

    "" but the fact that the SPLC's Intelligence Report gets sent to every law enforcement agency in the country. ""

    True, but law enforcement really doesn't care about pick-up artists outside of themselves wanting to learn better techniques. The more of this SPLC does, the more credibilty they will lose.

    They will become the Mad Magazine of Intel.

    So does the SPLC rate Bill Maher's fan club and viewing audence as a Hate Group now? And the Occupy Movement has plenty of hate and profanity filled rants on youtube. I wonder why I don't see them on SPLC's Watch Lists...

  • KDN||

    Bill Maher's fan club and viewing audence

    How does either of these things exist? Bill Maher: not funny enough to be a comedian, not attractive enough to be an actor, not smart enough to do anything else of value. I wish I could be famous for being a stubborn dumbass on a talking head program.

    "How do I pick up women?" "Women never pay attention to me." "women this, women that" It sounds just as sad, desperate, and ironically selfish as a woman who complains that there are no good men are out there...or that all men are cads..etc.
    You won't get a girlfriend until there is a specific girl that you like enough to ignore the rest. If you really do want several women, you won't get them until you embrace the fact that you are a sleazy a**hole. But saying you want women and then crying that they are mean for not lining up to have sex with you is not going to work.

  • ||

    You won't get a girlfriend until there is a specific girl that you like enough to ignore the rest.

    I generally agree with you Lisa. But that is not true. The last thing that will get you a girlfriend is ignoring other women and just pursuing one. Yeah, when you get her, you have to ignore the rest to keep her. But just focusing on her before you get her, is a sure way to get her to take you for granted and have nothing to do with you or worse yet decide you are a great friend.

    Sorry, women don't actually act like they do in the movies.

  • ||

    go read Roissy at Chateau Heartiste for some insight into how women really work, and what they really want.

    If you're honest with yourself, you'll see his is right.

    You won't get a girlfriend until there is a specific girl that you like enough to ignore the rest.

    I generally agree with you Lisa. But that is not true. The last thing that will get you a girlfriend is ignoring other women and just pursuing one.

    I think what she is saying, John, is that she isn't REALLY your girlfriend if you are fucking her while still dating other women.

    Which is an interesting theory. Not true, but interesting.

    Now, KEEPING her your girlfriend for a long time while openly dating other women -- that will only work for so long.

  • protefeed||

    There is no secret to "picking up women" because women are individuals, and what works on one may not work on another.

    Well, no. Every woman is an individual, but there are techniques that can allow one to pick up a large number of women who roughly fit a certain psychological profile.

    If you mean, there is no single technique that works on every woman -- well, duh.

    SPLC should be alerted to what Cosmopolitan says about men.

  • ||

    Wait, are women independant and smart enough to know who they want to have sex with and when, or aren't they? All of the leftist hoopla about Sandra Fluke's sex life would encourage the idea that women are perfectly able to determine whom and when to screw, and how much...so why do women need the SPLC to protect women from their extra-marital sexual decisions?
    The Catholic Church has been trying to protect women from their extra-marital sexual decisions, but that was bad of them...
    Someone please memo Sandra, Pelosi and Obama, cause we women are getting mixed messages about who is the protector of our decisions on sex, and we need her to tell us again...just to make sure we understand this time.

    Aside from this issue not involving the South, poverty or the law, I would say it is a perfect fit for the SPLC. Perhaps next they can tackle those nasty kids in my neighborhood who play "ring and run".

  • Roach||

    SPLC is a crap organization trying to justify its little Taj Mahal down there in Alabama. There is almost no significant right wing "hate" in this country, so they go around making stuff up and expanding the definition exponentially.

    It'll be a cold day in hell when they notice most of the hate crimes in this country, whatever that means exactly, are black on white.

  • Xmas||

    I don't know how you'd label these Pick Up Artiste guys as part of a "hate" group. They're just pointing out the game you have to play in this new world of female sexual liberation.

    And all those ladies that say, "You just need to be yourself and talk to us." They're lying. Sure, they've met "their" guy that way. He came up and talked to them, that's "all" he needed to do. But they never tell you about the 20 or 30 other guys that have just come up and talked to them. They never talk about the effed up mind games they played to "show" those guys they weren't interested.

    "Oh, he asked me out this weekend, so I told him I was busy helping my sister. Then on Saturday I posted on Facebook how bored I was sitting at home." I told him, "He was a good friend, and I didn't want to ruin that." "I wanted him to go away, so I slept with his roommate. She was kinda cute anyway."

  • ||

    "They're just pointing out the game you have to play in this new world of female sexual liberation."

    Have you read anything Roosh has written? If that was the case, nobody would care about him. He has written repeatedly about hitting women, how they liked to be choked, they deserve to be yelled at, laughed at, demeaned.

    This guy isn't a harmless teacher who wants to get men laid in a sea of mean, ugly chicks. This guy thinks and advocates that women should be treated like garbage.

    His tales of having sex are creepy. Its more like a perpetrator capturing and dominating their prey than having a good time. Roosh is on the edge of being a sexual predator.

  • ||

    The $PLC always goes on and on about "hate".

    But the $PLC has special rules for who gets tagged with the stigma of "hate".

    Black people aren't called "haters" and "racists".

    Asian people aren't called "haters" and "racists".

    ONLY White people and pro-White groups are called "haters" and "racists".

    Any White who objects to this stigmatization is often called anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    The $PLC says it's "anti-hate", but what it really is is anti-White.

    "Anti-hate" is just a code word for anti-White.

  • ||

    “The nazis used “evacuate” as a codeword for their genocide of jews. The communists used “agricultural centralization” as a codeword for their genocide of ukrainians. There’s nothing new about anti-whites using words like “diversity” and “multiculturalism” as codewords for their genocide of white children. They say they are “anti-racist.” What they are is anti-white. “Anti-racism” is a codeword for "anti-white.”

  • ||

    I get appeals from the SPLC from time to time. It goes into my fire-starter file.

  • ||

    What if we set aside the assumption “anti-racists” are brainwashed and apply Occam's Razor to what they are actually doing?

    “Anti-racists” Demand all White countries and only White countries be flooded with millions of people that are not their race, until White people become a vanishing minority. If any White person objects to this genocide, “anti-racists” call them a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

    They want White geNOcide.

  • ||

    The SPLC is nothing but an anti-White organization that is now trying desperately to find non-White "hate groups" without offending their donors. It's too late for them, the tide has already turned, there's nothing they can do to stop the tidal wave from gaining momentum. The SPLC supports White geNOcide (the program of systematic racial "assimilation" for EVERY and ONLY White countries); anti-racist is a code word for anti-White

    China is predominately Chinese. Japan is predominantly Japanese. In 1965, the United States was 89% White.

    It IS geNOcide.

    Hidden in all this nonsense is very good news: there's no more racism of whites against nonwhites! For if there was, SPLC wouldn't have go after pick-up artists as a way to stay in business. Just as when the NAACP said a Hallmark greeting card was racist because of the words "black holes." Meanwhile, white kids get beat up by black kids on a daily basis because of the color of their skin. The nation's Attorney General, who is black, protects blacks who harass and intimidate whites. Blacks have gotten the racist bug that whites used to have. That's a real problem we need to address, instead of harassing innocent people for no reason.

    Thank you for the story reason and Mike Riggs, I'd make one clarification if I may.

    The SLPC is trying to smear the Father's/Men's movement by conjoining it together with pickup artists.

    Please don't fall for their trap. There's at most a 0.000000001% overlap between the two, and the SLPC knows this, yet it published a list of two different things as if they were the same thing.

    Another front opens in the left's "War on Women" strategy of distraction covering Beta-ck Obama's failure as a man and as a president. If he was a PUA like Clinton and the Kennedy brothers the SPLC wouldn't make this an issue deserving of mockery. Don't they realize this is a tactical error that highlights the bukakke theater hypocrisy of female PUActivist and government-issue contraceptive advocate Sandra Fluke?

  • Shy||

    This article is incorrect Twats. Just because people laugh at PUAs does not mean some have not been mass murderers you pukes. Read the article correctly and to research. What is this site anyway, some kind of a joke?

  • ||

    I hate PUAs with a vengeance and believe PUA gurus need to be executed for scamming naive young men.

    That said, I have to "defend them" against your accusation. There have been no "mass murdering puas" - that was a lie invented by the media.

    That murderer had gone to a dating seminar which was a general, mainstream dating seminar, and was unrelated to PUAs.

    Again, I wish I could say there are "mass murdering pua gurus", but there simply aren't, and intellectual honesty is my primary goal.

    Most PUA gurus are just men who take advantage of gullible and inexperienced men. Most PUAs are just gullible inexperienced men who are being scammed. They're not dangerous to anyone except their own wallet.

  • UvalDuvalCuckoo||

    I know some of the stuff Ross Jeffries preaches is a bit out there - I don't think NLP really makes much of a difference w/ respect to turning women on. But most of what I've seen (and I'm not claiming to be an expert) from well known PUA's seems to be pretty much straight forward advice on scoring. Do weak men who fawn all over women and play the nice guy routine typically do well with women? Is it really true that guys that are jerks to women typically do much better with them than men that are completely fawning? Is being timid and scared to talk to women really something that hurts guys with women? I'm honestly not arguing with you - like I said, I was never at a seminar so I'm just curious why you think they're flat out frauds.

  • UvalDuvalCuckoo||

    Ok, I'll bite. Can you name a few PUAs that were mass murderers? The PUA movement hasn't been around all that long and it's a pretty connected community, if there was even one mass murdered seems like it would be pretty easy to find. Maybe I'm searching the wrong terms , but I can't find anything about a mass murder who was a PUA

    This is incredibly misleading. I was a target of MRA hate and had to file reports with the internet crimes division of the FBI as well as my local police. I was threatened with bodily harm when I fell into their cross hairs.

    The SPLC is just another Left wing group of morons who can't stand the thought of White men actually trying to take back a little power in the balance of sexes. Groups like the SPLC want white men to grovel and cower in front of women and minorities. Anything we do will be considered racist or sexist so who really gives a damn what they think.

    Pickup science works, and it isn't about degrading women, in fact for the most part it is about understanding women and what they want. Men who practice pickup make women happy, unlike the lecherous idiots who usually hit on them.

    Women through decades of radical feminism have forced men to adjust their habits and approaches. Don't blame us for playing the game they created.

  • ||

    a big part of the problem is this new idea (mostly a result of the War on DV which i have repeatedly claimed is at least as bad or worse than the WODrugs in its effects on the average joe, especially those who are innocent/not criminals), that "hate" is something awful, that it should even be criminally actionable especially if ON THE INTERTOOBS (recall the renton police chief case from a ways back).

    heck, gloria allred has called for rush' criminal prosecution for his "slut" comment about Fluke (same argument being currently eviscerated at volokh.com)

    fortunately, our 1st amendment and courts have prevented the kind of hate speech shenanigans we see in Europe, Canada.. but it's not for a lack of trying

    my favorite is when the parents of teenage girls call police and want CRIMINAL CHARGES FILED because somebody is calling their daughter a SLUT on their facebook page!!! oh noes!!!!

    I'm a woman. I'm not a feminist. I believe in equality, not female superiority like the professional "feminists" espouse. I utterly despise misandry, particularly misandry dressed up as "feminism."

    So I must thank the SPLC for continuing its downward spiral from utterly irrelevant to pure satire with this new category of "hate group." I wonder how many emails they get per day asking them if they're serious, or if they're TRYING to transform themselves into "The Onion v2.0."

    SPLC, the comedy you generate is spectacular. I only regret that there are still people out there who take you seriously. But trust me, that status quo won't last much longer. Enjoy your "legitimacy" while you can, because I foresee that in short order you'll find yourself dealing in "irrelevancy" and then, most heartwarming of all, "anonymity."

    Toodles!

  • Anna||

    Unfortunately, they're not "utterly irrelevant". Their relevance includes lots of influence with law enforcement.

    I think the SPLC is outdated... but good for them to pick up on Roosh V.

    He is not some pick-up artist, or even a simple foul-mouthed horny blogger, he is an advocate for abusing women.

    I've read him applaud hitting a woman, give directions on how to choke a woman, advocates punching and screaming at her, berating women in public, he repeatedly has stated that women are worthless and like to be abused. He has said that women don't contribute to society. They deserve to be treated like garbage... it goes on and on.

    This guy isn't just a poon hound, he is a psycho. He gets off on being cruel and dehumanizing.

    His complete lack of self-awareness to this only lends a normal thinking person to one conclusion: he is a sociopath.

    Hey, I'm ALL for anyone getting laid, being a "mans man" but this guy is a perpetrator. Glad someone is watching him.

    Yep, the SPLC has officially jumped the shark.

    Yesterday, while out in Seattle, I noticed that the SPLC now has those paid donation-gatherers who harass you when you're going in and out of the grocery store, blocking your way, waving their arms at you, and trying to get you to stop and hear their pitch.

    As a woman, I find douchebags and "pick up artists" annoying. But, I also find aggressive donation canvassers annoying ("human spam," as Dan Savage calls them).

    If being annoying in public is all it takes to be a "hate group" these days, the Southern Poverty Law Center is most definitely a hate group now.
