    101: Roman McClay and the Manosphere

    101: Roman McClay and the Manosphere

    And so we kick off 2022, IDSG's fourth year, with an episode about the Denver shooter and self-published SF novelist (who put himself and his own murder plans in his own books) Lyndon McCleod, AKA Roman McClay, and his relationship to the infamous 'Manosphere', AKA a network of misogynistic and 'masculinist' fashy chudlingers like Jack Murphy, Jack Davenport, etc.  We follow up a bit on our last episode (Part 1 of our post-verdict Rittenhouse coverage) and drop back in on the nauseating You Are Here podcast, and Baldy McDickface's Tim Pool's show, as we explore the recent flap around Jack Murphy's 'Cuck Letter' (don't ask... well, just listen), before delving a tad into McCleod/McClay's fiction and his worldview, including some hardcore stoopid genetic determinism.  Lots going on in this one, and so we're issuing bigtime content warnings, not least for the recorded voice of a multiple murderer.

    Jack Murphy, Cultivating Erotic Energy From a Surprising Source
    Today I sent my adoring loyal hot young girlfriend of two years to have sex with a stranger from tinder. She is currently at his apartment, checked in with me via text and is presumably sucking and f*****g her way to a good time. I’m alone writing. Couldn’t be happier. Now before you write me off as another salon.com freak who wants to be a cuckold or some kind of spineless beta under male, hear me out. This has been a long road. My manhood is intact and my dick is hard. [...]
    It is suspended disbelief. This disbelief allows us to create a gap to close. It creates space for desire to reach out to the other person. Role playing stranger rape puts us into different personas for the moment, creating mystery danger and desire. Ie. its f*****g hot. Matt from Tinder helps us to introduce another element which requires suspended disbelief. Just like my girlfriend knows I could nor ever would actually rape her, I too know that my girlfriend is not going to leave me for some guy she met on tinder today to f**k. The entire experience is regimented according to my rules. I introduced her to the idea. I pushed it. I told her to go on Tinder and find someone. On the day in question, I tell her when and where to do it. She checks in with me via text. I know where she is and I am waiting for her. She is not alone. She is on a mission sent directly by me. And the entire point is for me to get turned on in a way that wouldn’t happen otherwise. The excitement, eustress, and anticipation put me in a different state. I get turned on knowing someone else wants my girl as badly as I do. Yes, I get turned on knowing she is f*****g someone else. We’ve done it together where we picked up a guy at a bar, took him home and I watched them have sex. Or we’ve brought a guy from craig’s list over and I took pictures as he banged her. This time, I just sent her on her way and gave myself time to write and relax, knowing that exceptional sex awaits upon reunion. The time she spends with the other guy, isn’t really hers alone. Its ours. Its mine. Its her acting out my ideas. Her behavior is manifestation of my will. Rod Dreh

    100: Kyle Rittenhouse, Part 1

    100: Kyle Rittenhouse, Part 1

    IDSG episodes are like the proverbial bus that keeps you waiting and waiting and waiting and then turns up in multiples.  And it's definitely nothing to do with Jack having irregular jags of being in the mood to edit or anything.  Anyway, here's your latest.
    For this, our combined hundredth / Christmas episode, Daniel has prepared a bevvy of clips of Kyle Rittenhouse, the Kenosha Killer Kid, pre and post verdict.  Compare and contrast his tears on the stand to those he cried in the police interview room.  Compare and contrast his claimed trauma with his concerns - as expressed to his interesting Mom - immediately post-'incident'.  Compare and contrast his attitude on Tucker Carlson's and Charlie Kirk's respective shows, to his cheeky antics as a guest on another show that Daniel has discovered in the course of his listening... 
    This is not an episode calibrated to fill you with the Christmas spirit, to be honest.  But there is a point to this.  It demonstrates something, which will become evident as you listen, and be developed next episode.
    Take care, everyone.  We love you.

    Rittenhouse said that his attorneys at the time, Wood and John Pierce — who now represents the “QAnon Shaman” — had “started raising funds without my family’s permission” after his arrest. “They went on to fight an extradition [to Wisconsin] using a novel argument, saying I was in a militia so John Pierce can get paid, Lin Wood can get paid and grow his business and profit, apparently,” Rittenhouse said. But they lost that battle, and Rittenhouse was moved from a juvenile facility in Illinois to an adult facility in Wisconsin. According to Rittenhouse, Wood and Pierce were not even aware he’d been moved. He later fired both and hired new legal representation. Kyle Rittenhouse on Charlie Kirk's show with Jack Posobiec

    99: Sines vs. Kessler Verdict

    Let all persons having any manner of business before this venerable podcast gather ye forth and giveth your attention!  Closing in on the end of 2021 and their hundredth episode, Daniel and Jack talk about the Sines vs. Kessler trial (the civil trial of the Unite the Right organisers etc), the way in which the far-right (including the defendants) have conceptualised it, the long-awaited aftermath in the wake of the verdict (which dropped just before Thanksgiving), and the reactions and attitudes to the whole thing among the far-right, including lots of inexplicably buoyant Cantwell lunacy.

    Bottom of the Barrel: Charlottesville Trial Defense Attorneys Spread Antisemitism
    Joshua Smith, one of the attorneys, is representing Matthew Heimbach, Matthew Parrott, and the Traditionalist Worker Party, a neo-nazi group that helped put on Unite the Right in 2017. Calling in remotely to cross-examine a witness on November 11, Smith went on a meandering digression about so-called ‘ethnostates’. He claimed that expert witness and sociologist, Peter Simi, was ‘anti-white’ because he wouldn’t address Smith’s view that China and Singapore are ‘ethnostates’, and falsely said that white people are responsible for most advances in civilization and technology. When trying to confuse jurors about sociological concepts like in-groups and out-groups, Smith asked Simi if Hillary Clinton was white supremacist, and soon after he told Judge Norman Moon that cross-examinations can be “conversations” with witnesses, before sheepishly admitting his scattered tangents were “trying to keep it lively for everybody.” Another attorney in the Charlottesville lawsuit trial, Cincinnati-based, James E. Kolenich, is an antisemitic far-right Catholic. Kolenich told the Cincinnati Enquirer in 2018 that his motives in this case were simple: “My willingness to get involved is to oppose Jewish influence in society.” He questioned the accuracy of long-accepted scholarship about the death toll of the Holocaust: “You can’t call the Jew Holocaust into question, right? […] Christians really shouldn’t fall for that. The Holocaust is the execution, the crucifixion of Christ. The most important event in human history is His Resurrection, not, this Jewish Holocaust even if it did happen.” Kolenich is part of a Catholic splinter tendency that rejects 20th century reforms barring antisemitic theology, telling the Cincannati Enquirer, “The last such council [to modify the Catholic faith] was Vatican II or as we call it, Vatican Jew.” He believes all popes since Vatican II are illegitimate “anti-popes.” Bryan J.

Interesting topics and good conversation about absolutely deplorable human beings.

Lowrey ,

Profound hypocrisy

The hosts regularly claim the moral high ground, but when you focus critically on their speech—and thus their true thoughts—you clearly see that they are posers who seek to cash in on the attention brought by focusing on the so-called culture wars. For example, they regularly use the term “bastard” to deride the humans they deem inferior to them, with absolutely no regard for the disgusting, sexist, transphobic history of this word. Their misogyny, privilege, hypocrisy and ignorance are sooo obvious in their every word and vocal inflection, and they should be immediately ejected from decent society. They epitomize luxury ideation that undermines the struggle of the truly oppressed. Even the name they chose for their podcast reveals deep tribalism and elitist structural supremacy. Elitist, high-caste supremacists with privileged access to media control!

Woke crap

Did we really need another soy boy podcast? I don’t think so.
