Jezebel Attacked The Vigilant Citizen … Here’s Why They Should Stay in Their Lane

118

Jezebel, a blog that targets women with toxic, clickbait-y articles, attacked The Vigilant Citizen site in a hit piece article. Maybe they should look into their company’s shameful past instead.

Throughout its decade of existence, The Vigilant Citizen has been mentioned several times by major publications. Some articles were objective, well researched and motivated by a desire to inform. Others, like this Jezebel article, have been all-out hit pieces aimed at discrediting my work, probably because it doesn’t comply with the agenda they’re trying to shove down people’s throats.

I usually don’t bother replying to these articles because, simply put, I don’t care. I write articles analyzing various topics and I let people draw their own conclusions. Unlike sites like Jezebel, The Vigilant Citizen is about presenting facts, not dictating what you should think about facts.

But when I read this purposely misleading article on Jezebel that attempts to discredit the Vigilant Citizen with contorted arguments, my face scrunched up in incomprehension. Is Jezebel actually giving a lecture about “credibility”? Really? Jezebel? The same Jezebel that was founded by the infamous Gawker media empire?

The now-defunct Gawker was a marketing company that founded several websites including Lifehacker, Clickhole, Kotaku, Jezebel and its flagship website Gawker.com. Its Wikipedia entry states:

“Throughout its existence, Gawker maintained a reputation as one of the most unscrupulous elements of new media and a constant example of yellow journalism.”
– Wikipedia, Gawker

So, yeah, if they could not lecture other sites about credibility, that would be great.

Distorting the Facts

In typical Jezebel fashion, the article began with a personal attack, not on me but on a columnist named Rod Dreher, who is apparently a terrible person. Then, the reporter Anna Merlan, went on to attack The Vigilant Citizen because Dreher linked to my article “The Occult World of Asia Argento“.

The analysis in my article is factual and well-sourced. Merlan even calls this site (perhaps sarcastically) “extremely credible-seeming”. Nonetheless, she made it a point to portray me as a lunatic, lumping me together with someone I have never heard of and have no connection to, and drastically distorting my message. Instead of objectively reporting the contents of my article, like a journalist would do, Merlan heavily exaggerates to come up with her own dubious conclusion.

“Vigilant Citizen identifies Argento as “occult elite,” because she’s the daughter of famed horror director Dario Argento and has talked online about esoteric spirituality and magic and witchcraft.

In the world that Dreher and the Vigilant Citizens inhabit, of course, that’s tantamount to inviting Satan right into your house to delicately dismember babies on your kitchen counter.”

Nobody said that, Anna. However, since she wrote several glowing articles about the Satanic Temple and its PR stunts, she might know a little more about “inviting Satan” than I do.

Of course, this is not the first time that Merlan has used falsehoods to fit her narrative. In 2014, she heavily promoted a Rolling Stone story about a gang rape at UVA … which turned out to be completely false. When people tried to shed light on the story and bring out the truth, she flat-out insulted them.

 

Then, the Columbia School of Journalism published a full report about this journalistic blunder, concluding that the story “failed to follow basic, even routine journalistic practice” in terms of fact-checking and due diligence. The story also led to a defamation lawsuit that was won by the University.

Faced with undeniable facts, Merlan was then forced to issue an apology. But not before proving, once again, that the agenda was more important than the truth. In short, it was yet another low point in Gawker’s history of crass journalism.

Gawker Died Due To its Own Sleaziness

After years of annoying the internet with terrible content that often included privacy violation, damaging gossip, vicious libel, and inflammatory accusations, Gawker died due to its own sleaziness. And the way it went down was as surreal as it gets.

Indeed, Hulk Hogan came out of retirement, marched to his theme song “Real American” to the Supreme Court, and metaphorically leg-dropped Gawker into financial ruin.

In case you did not follow this sordid episode in modern journalism, people at Gawker obtained a tape of Hulk Hogan (whose real name is Terry Bollea) having sex with his friend’s wife, which was secretly recorded without his consent. In what its editor probably thought was the clickbait catch of the century, Gawker promoted the video on its flagship website, even after Hogan requested to video to be taken down.

During the trial, the people at Gawker stunned the world with bizarre responses. Here’s what happened when Bollea’s lawyer interrogated former Gawker Editor-in-Chief and article author AJ Daulerio on his claims that the sex tape was “newsworthy”:

“Can you imagine a situation where a celebrity sex tape would not be newsworthy?” asked the lawyer, Douglas E. Mirell.

“If they were a child,” Mr. Daulerio, Former Gawker Editor In Chief.

“Under what age?” the lawyer continued.

“Four.”

Huh? So you would publish a sex tape involving a 5-year-old? Later he said he was joking. In his sworn deposition. OK, AJ.

Anyway, the jury ruled in favor of Bollea and he was awarded $140M from Gawker and $10M from Gawker founder Nick Denton. Though they settled for much less, the ruling bankrupted the company and caused Gawker.com to shut down. Its other sites, including Jezebel, were sold to the media conglomerate Conde Nast, which owns a long list of magazines and digital publications.

To announce the sale, Gawker owner Nick Denton wrote an article entitled “Whoring Out Jezebel”. So appropriate.

After being sold, Jezebel kept doing what it does best: Exploiting feminism for clicks.

Jezebel: Exploiting Feminism

Jezebel describes itself as a “feminist liberal blog about style and fashion”. The true description of the site should be: “Gawker pandering to women with clickbait articles”.

The name of the site itself, based on a biblical story from the Old Testament, is extremely telling of the mindset behind it all.

“Jezebel” was the name of a Phoenician queen who incited her husband, King Ahab, to abandon the worship of God and replace it with the worship of the deities Baal and Asherah, which included blood sacrifices, ritual sex, and sacred prostitutes. During her reign, she persecuted prophets of God and had them slaughtered by the hundreds. She also fabricated evidence of blasphemy against an innocent landowner who refused to sell his property to King Ahab, causing the landowner to be put to death. As punishment, Jezebel was thrown out of a window by members of her own court, and the flesh of her corpse was eaten by stray dogs.

For thousands of years, the name “Jezebel” was used to describe an immoral, scheming woman who deceives, manipulates and destroys people to reach her own nefarious goals.

The name is rather appropriate. Since its creation, the publication Jezebel has been poisoning the public space with toxic content based on manufactured outrage, personal attacks, and exploiting “feminism”.

In her article “Why Jezebel Has The Wrong Approach To Feminism, Period”, writer Kyria Abrahams wrote:

“In order to say how Jezebel is ruining feminism, I guess I’d need a good idea of what feminism is in 2014. And God only knows at this point, because Jezebel has ruined it. Before the Internet, being a feminist meant that your boss couldn’t fire you just because you refused to let him grab your tits. That was a good thing. These days, feminism is more about hurt feelings and trigger warnings, blogs about rape jokes, ironic racism, and fat shaming. It used to be about the pill and the right to be a female priest. Now it’s about outrage and clickbait.

Jezebel plays upon the worst female stereotype: that of the gossipy, shrill, cliquish, therapy-tethered, cast of Girls-style spoiled brat. Jezebel writers act the way misogynistic men mistakenly believe all women act, with a stick up their ass and their nose in an iPhone. This website, and sites like them, have single-handedly set back badass chicks faster than Sleater Kinney in a tractor beam.”

Howie Reith, a writer at Huffington Post and Time, concluded that Jezebel was actually “parasitic on feminism”.

We need to talk about a tale of two “Feminisms.” I put “Feminisms” in quotes because, as I hope to demonstrate in this answer, one of these “Feminisms” is not, I think, properly called by that name. This other movement is, in fact, a parasite on Feminism, and though a parasite flourishes best when its host is alive and healthy, its goals are ultimately opposed to those of its host, and we should not mistake one for the other.

Jezebel is a subsidiary of Gawker Media, a for-profit viral media marketing company. It was created with the goal of writing more material friendly to Gawker’s female audience which already represented the majority of their readers.

There are several categories of content that do well in viral marketing: videos of cute things, shocking things, cats, and so on, but by far the best content to generate views, comments, shares, reposts, and all other varieties of attention-grabbing is content that makes people angry.

We are operating in an environment that systematically encourages radical, hateful, angry thinking and behavior. (…)

There is thus a series of organizations and Internet users that seek to exploit Feminism as a means of producing rage, and thus views, and thus profit. The more controversy and animosity they can create, the more they profit and grow.

I don’t think it’s unreasonable for me to say that provoking a gender war is not, ultimately, in the long-term interest of Feminism, but it is in the short-term interest of businesses that profit off of sensationalized hatred and anger. In the process of appealing to feminists and enraging non-feminists, it is in the best interest of such organizations to call themselves “Feminist.”

While Jezebel exploits “feminism” to pump-out toxic, hateful articles, its sister site does the same with race relations.

The Root: Exploiting Racism

The Root uses the same anger-inciting formula as Jezebel. Here are some headlines taken from The Root:

 

Rationalize and use mental gymnastics all you want, but these posts are racist. I am fully aware of the many underhanded ways Black people have been undermined throughout American history and these topics deserve proper research and attention. However, none of this is happening at The Root.

What’s actually happening is that the “reporters” at The Root get a paycheck from their bosses to drum up hate and racial division because it fits their owner’s social and political agenda.

Through unfair generalizations, dehumanization of “the other”, and low-grade insults with expressions such as “white tears”, The Root exploits race relations the same way Jezebel exploits feminism. And, like Jezebel, they are ultimately hurting their own cause.

What happened to the dream of not judging people by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character?

In Conclusion

This article was mainly about giving Jezebel and its entire company a small taste of their own medicine. However, unlike them, I do not need to resort to twisted facts and exaggerations to prove my point. I just did what I always do: I stated the facts.

Unlike The Vigilant Citizen, Jezebel is owned by a media conglomerate and its higher-ups expect their “journalists” to push a specific, precisely defined agenda. Right now, the agenda is about “divide and conquer” – driving a wedge between races, genders and political affiliations. And of course, the agenda is also about suppressing and discrediting facts that go against its narrative, thus the hit piece of Jezebel against The Vigilant Citizen.

What they don’t seem to realize is that their agenda is so obvious, tone-deaf and out-of-touch with reality that they’re actually driving people away from the causes they’re pretending to be championing. They are the reason why a growing number of people distrust and reject mass media.

In-depth analysis aside, just look at the names. A “Jezebel” deceives and destroys people for personal gain. A “Vigilant Citizen” informs fellow humans to improve their lives.

Which would you rather be?

VC you probably do more for “feminism” than you realise. By exposing the truth about the entertainment industry you no doubt have saved many children from being pushed into the industry as the parents have read this site and now wouldn’t allow their children to go anywhere near the modelling agencies or scouts. It can be enchanting and enticing for someone (especially women) to think they can become a “star” and be adored by the masses. Your site exposes the truth and shows how ugly and sadistic it all really is and thus you have Empowered women to look beyond the gloss and realise the truth. I have 2 beautiful daughters and the eldest now 16 has had several approaches to be in this advert or catalogu etc since the age of 2. I have always said no. There is no way I would bring her to the entrance of that den as a young child so that she could potentially be preyed upon if “they” decide she had the right look or qualities. Whenever a new artist has come on the scene I explain to my daughter whats really behind it all and why the MV’s contain what they… Read more »

It is really interesting which idols these “feminists” have.
There are many strong and independent women in the bible (Sarah, Mary, Judith). But who are chosen to represent modern feminism?
Lilith and Jezebel!
A demon and a unambigusly wicked queen. And while you could make a case for Lilith (who is actually not part of the bible, but of the Apocrypha), Jezebel is one of the least feminists characters.

Luckily, my instincts have kept me from reading drivel clickbat articles, Jezebel was never on my radar, or one to consider a valid source for legit journalism. Jezebel is just another CNN but with worse content, which I didn’t think was possible. Lmao.

It’s sounds like Jezebel should consider selling clothes or makeup, they would have a greater success in making money than writing (I’m being sarcastic about the term ‘writing’).

The more that the public wakes up, the more Jezebel will die in views and hits. Bye bye Jezebel.

Some people refer to VC as if it was the only site that approached illuminati symbolism, subliminal messages, the occult, and similar subjects. I remember that around the end of the 1990’s I started reading about subliminal messages, that also included some satanic symbolisms, but the site I used to read (which was not VC, that didn’t exist yet at that time) didn’t mention any connection of the artists or movies that showed the symbolism with occultism. So I read the articles, understood the symbology (the site didn’t mention the one-eye symbology, only other types of symbologies and subliminal messages about sex, violence, and some involving satanic symbols), but I couldn’t understand why those artists, movies and videos showed those occult symbologies. So I stopped reading this kind of stuff, because I couldn’t understand their purpose. Since I started reading VC, things started making more sense to me: the reason why those artists have to show those occult symbologies and subliminal messages that promote promiscuity, violence and other damaging things is that those artists actually made a deal with the devil. And though this idea seemed to me, some years ago, completely surreal and only possible in movies, currently I… Read more »

Yes: the occult, sorcery/witchcraft, sexual deviancy/promiscuity/sex magick and worshiping of demons (and therefore Satan) is recorded in the very first book of the Bible, Genesis, and is referenced all throughout, all the way to the last book of Revelation. The ancient Egyptians and Babylonians further cultivated these practices and were able to record and pass them down, and this what you see ALL of today’s occult/Illuminati atrocities are based upon. As the Bible says: “there is nothing new under the sun”. These practices are REAL. They have existed since the BEGINNING. They are POWERFUL (fortunately not more powerful than Jehovah and Jesus). They deserve our healthy fear….not to be feared to the point of cowering, but to be acknowledged and respected. Satan and his demons are no doubt very real and very powerful – they exist and operate in a spiritual plane under spiritual laws that temporal humans aren’t totally privy to. A basic understanding and the proper spiritual weaponry are all that is needed to counteract their power and influence. The “proper” (and only effective) spiritual weapon is acceptance of Christ as Savior, and the receipt of the Holy Spirit. Kind of like this analogy: there are bad people… Read more »

As a woman I just wanted to tell you that you have done a lot more for me than all these other so-called (deranged) feminists who are more interested in something called “abortion” aka killing their unborn children. I have never read Jezebel, the name alone is a major turn off.

But all your articles on the sexual exploitation of “famous” females to entice the masses have made me realize that as a female we do not need to be like this. It is all a game to them. You are doing a phenomenal job on your site to educate us and to make us see the writing on the wall. Thank you for that.

I am a somewhat regular reader of Deadspin, the sports property of Gawker/Univision (is Univision owned by Conde Nast or was that a potential mistake by VC?
Anyways, it is maddening how closed off and blind the writers and readers/commenters are at all of the Gawker sites. It is just one giant echo chamber of super liberal views where white people are all evil and 9/11 happened exactly how the government told us it did. I have known for a while that these sites were being used for programming/brainwashing/inciting hatred and have frequented Deadspin less and less as a result.
Deadspin is pretty bad, but Jez and Root are just downright awful. Jalopnik, the car property, is probably the only half decent one that isn’t littered with garbage.

Never trusted them simply for the name alone. They’re even worse than Cosmo magazine. Cosmopolitan (named after the alcoholic beverage, I assume) seemingly caters to overpaid alcoholic office nymphomaniacs (judging from having read room-mates copies many times in the past.) Jezebel seems to cater to the Instagram/Tinder crowd that likes to engage in drunken one night stands then claim it was r**e (nevermind that he was drunk, too. “He should have known better!” Yeah, cuz you’re a 10 and he’s a 6 aesthetically. Of course you’d regret it and call it r**e. Its bad for your image. This is me being sardonic, btw.) At least Cosmo readers Own their trampish ways “Yeah, I banged my married co-worker at the office party. It was hot and I’m okay with being a ho.” Jezebels are the reason so many young guys these days are afraid to so much as make eye contact with their female peers; it would probably be called “visual assault” if he didn’t look like some movie hunk.

“Jezebel” is anti-intellectual. They can’t handle any truly, complex discussions, even when those discussions are prompted by women. They simply re-print chattering trends for followers.

Something I’ve noticed over the past, couple of weeks: Why are so many women at the top wearing yellow? Melania Trump wore it to multiple State events in Britain and both Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton did recently, as well. Also, The Queen has taken to wearing chartreuse dominant outfits to almost every, public event.

I’ve heard about “Emerald Green” being considered a Luciferian color in older Theosophist writings (nod to “The Emerald Tablets”, perhaps?) but what about yellow?

Jezebel is the name of a demonessa, as referring to the story of her life. By the several sources, jezebel was a demonessa which hated children, killed them in beds or kidnapped them to eat. So the King was married non to a normal woman, but with a devil.

If Anna Merlan thinks all of this is such exaggerated mumbo jumbo then why does she write so many articles supporting the satanic temple? Makes no sense at all.

Lmao! You just straight owned them! So good lol. I have a feeling they’ll be back for another dose sometime. People with personality traits this flawed can rarely take what they dish gracefully. They do lots of promo for Jezebel. I’m willing to bet Vigilant citizen still has more supporters so they’re still confused and mad as to why.

“a black dude wearing a shiirt written ‘100% black’ is pride”.
Yes, I understand it as pride, because prejudice of black people against white people is rare. Sometimes some black people feel sad because of the prejudice they suffer from white people, but I don’t understand it as prejudice of blacks against whites, it is just hurt in my opinion. Maybe a black person wearing a shirt like that might really mean prejudice against whites, but at first I would think he wanted to show pride, because it is more common than prejudice against whites. My final opinion would depend on his attitudes. As for the white guy wearing a shirt like that, I would consider it to be probably prejudice against black people, because there is no need for a white guy to show pride, since white people rarely suffer prejudice from black people. It is like saying “100% straight”. Straight people don’t (or rarely) suffer prejudice from gays. BTW, I am white, so I am not trying to play a victim here, I am defending black people’s point of view.

VC please do an article exposing the symbolism in the new music video featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Young Thug… you have featured both of them on this site in the past. I also think it is relevant to cover a video that has gone viral of Lil Uzi Vert telling his fans at his concert that they missed the rapture and they are all going hell with him. Thanks VC!!

Rolling Stones quoted: Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert descend into a world of surreal debauchery in the new video for their song, “Up.”

The clip has a distinctly David Lynch-ian vibe with Young Thug and Uzi prominently spitting the woozy track in a room draped in red velvet curtains and covered with black-and-white checkered floors – not unlike the Black Lodge in Twin Peaks. The rest of the clip is packed with mind-bending visuals and occult imagery, including a dancer donning devil horns and a pentagram painted on her face.

Journalism isn’t what it used to be. Most of the popular sites and news channels do nothing but confuse and divide the people. Pure hateful propaganda. In their name jezebel says it all. They have no shame. Pathetic journalism.

Ever hear stories about business owners who lose their business to a “fire”, and then collect an insurance windfall…
I have inside information on this, I won’t bother to go into it, it isn’t worth the words, and no one cares…
Mostly at the instigation and plotting of the “friend” a radio DJ named Todd “Bubba the love sponge” Clem.
Denton, Hogan, and Clem, with an assist from Clem’s wife. Plotted, cooked up, and schemed the whole thing. I don’t know exactly what they all got from it. It doesn’t really matter anyway. I am pointing out though, it wasn’t a blunder that put Gawker out of business. It was by design, and financial gain, of all those involved. Does it matter much in the context of this article, maybe not, but it may be informative to the bigger picture to see what kind of people are really responsible for Gawker, and all it’s subsidiaries.

The world would be better off without feminism altogether. I am confused as to why VC doesn’t just downright dropkick this obvious ‘wedge’ of an agenda.

OriginalFeminism
OriginalFeminism

Feminism originally aimed at defending women’s rights, and there’s nothing bad about this. Some people corrupted its meaning and its original purposes, but it doesn’t mean that the word “feminism” should be considered evil all the times. It’s like reprobating the word “liberty” just because the Enlightenment (which is related to the illuminati, right?) movement preached ideals like “liberty”. You cannot “convict” a word whose original meaning is very good just because a group of people used that word as a synonym of bad ideals.

Like Jezebel could actually give Feminism a bad name – lol Since Feminism is sitting at the bottom of the pits of Hell, it’s pretty hard to “give it a bad name”

Jezebel is just another Leftist craphole for Feminists and w****s. You should consider it an honor to be attacked by the worst of what the internet has to offer – it means you’re doing something right.

Feminism was originally good
Feminism was originally good

Did you read what writer Kyria Abrahams said (it was said in this article)?
“Before the Internet, being a feminist meant that your boss couldn’t fire you just because you refused to let him grab your tits. That was a good thing. (…) It used to be about the pill and the right to be a female priest. Now it’s about outrage and clickbait.”
The original purpose of feminism was, according to a definition I found in some dictionaries:
“the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes”.
So, from what I understood, the feminist movement intended to prevent women from being treated as if they were inferior to men, that is, with fewer rights than men. Is this a bad thing?? The problem, as Kyria said, is that many people (surprisingly, many women) have corrupted the meaning of feminism.

I think he is saying that feminism was always toxic to human relations. Sure there are positive aspects to it, but the Rockefellers certainly didn’t spearhead it for the good of humanity.

Feminism has different branches. It seems that Jezebel is indeed one of the forms of modern feminism.

Feminism was originally a good thing
Feminism was originally a good thing

Feminism originally had good intentions. Similar to the fight against racism, feminism is (was) the fight against sexism/chauvinism. The original purpose of feminism was, according to this definition I found on some dictionaries:
“the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes”. So, from what I understood, it intended to prevent women from having fewer rights than men. Is this a bad thing?? The problem, as Kyria Abrahams said, is that many people (surprisingly, many women) have corrupted the meaning of feminism.

Craig
Craig

No, feminism was never a good thing. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Feminism can be good
Feminism can be good

The original feminism movement was like the fights against racism, because they fight (or used to fight) against two types of prejudice: against women and against black people. So if you are saying that the fights against different types of prejudice are harmful, you are therefore saying that we should support prejudice against women and black people too! And maybe other types of prejudice too!

Craig, I beg your pardon? (See what I did, being polite..)
Talking about and fighting for equal rights for men and women, although being different sexes is not right? Being payed 60 cents because you have a vagina, but a full dollar when you have a penis, is not really something substantial to fuss over, isn’t it? Are you woman or man? What do you get payed?
(Thanks Rita, lesson learned.)

Feminism ehh? Read Rita Mae Brown. You’ll have a laugh while learning.
(No, not using sarcasm here, just respect and full on admiration for a lot of things she managed to be clear about, including politics. Not to say she is right about all, but as an exemplary example she leaves space for you to decide for yourself about what she writes. And that’s life.
But, yes, you have to accept there are females, men, homo’s and lesbo’s, with other opinions in history too.

Unsure what The Root has to do with any of this…. It’s not a news site, it’s a blog site. No one claims to be journalists.. They’re bloggers. They don’t share “facts”, they share opinions. Every one uses dramatic titles to draw in readers. Black people can’t be racist, because racism requires institutional power to oppress others, which Black people don’t have. Black people can be prejudice, which is different. Check the definitions. I feel as though the attack on a website that said nothing regarding you was unnecessary and petty. I am no longer a fan.

You are unfortunately extremely misguided as well as extremely myopic in your world view by presuming that the entire black race has never had institutional power in any place on Earth in recent history – not all of the African continent was affected by slavery.

Using your logic therefore, black people most certainly ARE capable of racism; witness what’s happening in South Africa right now – the ‘institutional power’ (the black government) as you call it are in fact oppressing white people. Notwithstanding the terrible history of this country, do two wrongs make a right? I don’t think so. And before you try to accuse me of racism, I’m black.
