This is the complete transcript from Roosh's press conference in Washington DC on Friday night. It is abundantly evident that the only thing Roosh has ever raped is the media's narrative. Roosh explains his take on the press conference on his own site.
Roosh: All right, are you ready? Is that a yes? Oh, we have a new one. Where do you work from?
Female Reporter: Um, Martha Stewart?
Roosh: Martha Stewart?
Female Reporter: Yes.
Roosh: Okay, yeah, sure. I don't know how she got in here. Someone must have told her. All right, so first I'm going to make a statement and then you can ask me anything. Cool?
All right, so the world has gone insane in the past week. Why? Number one, I had organized meet ups around the world for men to enjoy a social happy hour to meet in private and talk about anything. Work, politics, girls, just to meet. Okay? Number two, a year ago I wrote an article How to Stop Rape. This article, to a 10-year-old, was obvious that I didn't intend to legalize rape or cause harm against women. But starting on Sunday, a lot of you have lied by saying that I am a pro-rape advocate. He wants women to get hurt! And then the third thing, you said the meet ups are about rapists. They want to gather to learn how to rape. They are going to exchange tips. Some of you have called it a rape rally! What the hell is that? A rape rally? So because of that I've been all over the world in terms of the news. Over 100 articles have been written.
The result is what? I'm currently the most hated man in the world. Governments from all over the world have talked about me. Australia has tried to keep me out. They called up their Navy to keep me out because they thought that I was going to get in through a private yacht. So the Navy got called up. In England, the House of Commons debated me for half an hour to say how I'm a bad man who shouldn't be allowed entry. Mayors from everywhere, Canada, have said were going to keep him out (like they could anyway they are just a mayor, a mayor can't keep someone out). The governor of Texas said the same thing. Police from everywhere said that all meetups will be monitored. A private meetup for men is going to be monitored. 1984 is here.
Worst of all, my family's address was put on the Internet through the hacking group Anonymous and your colleagues at the Daily Mail confirmed the doxx and say that I my mom's meatloaf everyday. Dozens of threats have come in. Someone said that they're going to burn my house down but save my mom. So I'm glad, but you have to understand that your work and the work of your own colleagues have incited a mob based on lies that has put my family in danger. If they get hurt right now, God forbid, it's because of you. It's because you didn't read a damn article, you misinterpreted, and now we have this rage mob to where, as you can see, I had to hide this. I told you don't tell anyone.
I must state right now that not a single woman has been hurt by me. I've never been accused of rape. I've never been charged. No follower of mine has read something by me and then gone to rape because I know if they did hurt a woman it would be all over the news. Not a single woman has been hurt. Yet, there is a real rape mob somewhere and there is media from the country where that mob is. Who wants to volunteer what country has an active rape mob? What happened on New Year's Eve in Cologne? Does anyone know? Someone? On New Year's Eve mobs of men assaulted women, they raped them, and what did you guys do? You covered it up. So when a real rape happens that goes against the agenda of your boss, you actually hide it. But then when no rapes happen and I try to do a meetup you lose your shit.
So I just wanted to come here just to state that not only are you guys not honest in your reporting of me but that no one has been harmed and when real harm takes place you don't say anything. That is not right and not fair. I pray to God that nothing happens to anyone that is close to me and if it does it's your fault. That's my statement.
All right, is there anything else?
Reporter: Why do you think people think of you as a rapist?
Roosh: They need a target to get all the rage that the citizens have to put it on someone that doesn't conflict with the agenda of your bosses and the ruling establishment. Roosh, go after him, it doesn't matter if he gets hurt but we can't go against our immigrant agenda. We can't go against the feminist agenda. So we need to get the masses (the idiots who believe the stuff that you write) and put it on to something else. So you put it on me. I'm just a scapegoat. They are just using me. But, I'm going to harness this. I'm going to harness all this coverage that you guys are giving me and convert it to money and women. That's what I'm going to do. That's the job that I have to do. I'm getting emails from a lot of girls right now and I plan (once this drama dies down if I can survive it) I may have to get in touch with them. That's what you given me. You have made me one of the most famous men in the world. Granted, it was a lie. It was a lie. But hey, this is where we are right now so I'm going to work with what you gave me.
Female Reporter: Do you acknowledge that any of your writing might be genuinely offensive or upsetting to some people?
Roosh: So what?
Female Reporter: Do you blame all of their reaction solely on media misinterpretation?
Roosh: I blame them for not reading what I write, for taking the mentality of a 10-year-old kid.
Female Reporter: Your writing is offensive on its face.
Roosh: So what? So what? I have freedom of speech. Be offended, good, that means my writing got you.
Female Reporter: So you acknowledge that you did provoke some of this yourself.
Roosh: I acknowledge that as a writer my job is to get attention and I did it. Right? But so what if you are offended. So what if I make fun of you? Is that we're at right now that we can't write things that hurt people's feelings? Good, get offended, feel something, but don't lie. Don't lie. And that's what you guys have done.
Male Reporter: So do you consider yourself a victim in this scenario?
Roosh: You know what? No. I take full responsibility for everything that I have done but that doesn't mean that I can't state what you did wrong. I'm not saying "oh, I wish I could turn back the hands of time. I wish I didn't write that article." No, I wrote it. It came from my mind and it's going to stay. But if you did something wrong then I get to call you out on it too. Right?
Female Reporter: So, do you have any regrets about publishing the article?
Roosh: None. None.
