Roosh V had a bad week. When word got out about the men’s rights activist (MRA) meetups he had planned to hold in 165 locations around the world – 10 in Canada – he faced bans, threats, and mayors telling him he wasn’t welcome. Naturally, he blamed the media; women in particular. Now he’s compiling a list of journalists who, he said, misrepresented his intentions.
“Dozens of reporters have now blatantly lied about all of us being ‘pro rape’ and have a ‘rape advocacy platform,’” the man who previously claimed rape should be legal on private property wrote on his forum. “They have frothed up a crazy mob that is ready to dox and assault.… The problem is not just the mob, but those who are tossing chum to the mob. We’re going after the root of the problem.”
