'Psychedelic Warlord': Teenaged Beto's misogynistic online posts

WASHINGTON — Former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke’s colorful past helped fuel the presidential campaign he launched this week. His résumé includes time spent in a punk band and, as revealed in a piece in Reuters on Friday, membership in an early hacker collective called the Cult of the Dead Cow.

According to Reuters reporter Joseph Menn, there is no indication that the teenage O’Rourke engaged in the “edgiest sorts of hacking activity” like breaking into computers while part of the group. But his participation did include creating short pieces of writing known as “text files” under a nom de plume. Archived versions of writings attributed to O’Rourke’s alias “Psychedelic Warlord” include one that criticized some women as “####,” mocked them for having “violent boyfriends,” and suggested a way to deal with these women was to call them “completely ugly,” or inform “Nazi Skins in your area” that they had “AIDS.”

Rob Friedlander, a spokesperson for O’Rourke — who would have been in his late teens at the time the piece was published — declined to comment on this story beyond pointing to comments the candidate made on the campaign trail in Iowa on Friday. The El Paso Times reported O’Rourke acknowledged his membership in the Cult of the Dead Cow at one event in Iowa. However, the newspaper also pointed out that he “did not say whether he regrets his involvement.”

“It was something that I was a part of when I was a teenager in El Paso a long, long time ago,” O’Rourke said of the group.

O’Rourke later said he regretted the writings during an interview with a podcast in Iowa.

“I’m mortified to read it now, incredibly embarrassed. But I have to take ownership of my words. … I have to look long and hard at my actions … and I have to constantly try to do better,” O’Rourke said, according to the Texas Tribune’s Patrick Svitek. 

The various pieces of text attributed to O’Rourke’s alias were all dated between 1987 and 1989, a period when he was under 18. They included a mix of fiction and commentary. And while one of the files had derogatory remarks about some women, the Reuters article credited O’Rourke with having “tried to do something about sexism in the male-dominated world of hacking” by pushing for the Cult of the Dead Cow to admit a female member. The text file with the misogynistic language was not referenced in the Reuters article.

Even before he kicked off his presidential bid on Wednesday night, O’Rourke was the subject of intense speculation and media coverage stemming from his unexpected close finish in an ultimately unsuccessful Senate bid against Republican Ted Cruz last year. Much of the avalanche of attention that has been heaped on O’Rourke has focused on his punk past and penchant for skateboarding.

Menn reported that one of the Cult of the Dead Cow’s main activities was operating bulletin boards where members of the group wrote and distributed their text files. According to Menn, O’Rourke contributed these essays as a teenager using the “Psychedelic Warlord” handle. O’Rourke discussed his role in the group with Menn. Some of these Cult of the Dead Cow writings that are attributed to O’Rourke’s alias are still archived online.

In one text file that was dated to 1989, when O’Rourke was 16 or 17, “Psychedelic Warlord” described a “new creature: THE ULTRA TRENDY.” In an over-the-top sarcastic tone, Psychedelic Warlord declared these “ultra trendies” to be “a cancer that might cause the death of each and every scene across the nation.” Psychedelic Warlord went on to say that many of these “ultra trendies” are female “####.”

“ULTRA TRENDIES are usually the ‘scene ####’ that many of the menfolk admire so. They show up, get drunk with the band, and tell the lead singer, ‘I really like your music. I think it’s a lot like the Sex Pistols. Sooo… you wanna ###?’” Psychedelic Warlord wrote.

The writer went on to accuse these women of “only” liking the Sex Pistols and the group’s frontman, Sid Vicious, and suggested this affinity led them to enter into abusive relationships.

 

“ULTRA TRENDY females hook-up with violent boyfriends because, (yeah… you guessed it) ‘He’s so much like Sid Vicious!’” Psychedelic Warlord wrote.

After describing the characteristics of these “ultra trendies,” Psychedelic Warlord offered suggestions for how to handle these people. The ideas included encouraging interactions between the “ultra trendies” and neo-Nazis as well as mocking their appearance.

“Tell the Nazi Skins in your area that this certain ULTRA TRENDY has AIDS. … To kill an ULTRA TRENDY female, show her a picture of what she’d look like without make-up. … Tell him or her that they’re completely ugly,” Psychedelic Warlord wrote.

While the Reuters report did not discuss the text file about “ultra trendies,” it did quote from other things O’Rourke wrote for the collective as “Psychedelic Warlord” that can be found in the same archive.

In one of these other pieces, Psychedelic Warlord writes from the perspective of a narrator who confronts a feeling of boredom and aimlessness by going on a killing spree, including hitting children with a car. The piece, which was dated 1988, continues with the narrator describing the murder as an “act of love” and saying the feeling it provoked was “simply ecstasy.”

“I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last,” Psychedelic Warlord wrote.

Another archived Psychedelic Warlord piece for the Cult of the Dead Cow was a 1988 interview with a neo-Nazi street preacher. In that piece, Psychedelic Warlord described the person’s beliefs as “horrible” and said they shared Nazi’s perspective because they “do not support Neo-Nazism in any way” but “also do not believe in censorship.” Psychedelic Warlord also wrote about their own ideology in one 1987 file where they envisioned a society without money.

“Think, a free society with no high, middle, or low classification of it’s [sic] people. Think, no more money related murders, suicides, divorces, or theft,” Psychedelic Warlord wrote, adding, “Think, no more families living below a set poverty line or children starving to death because of a lack of money.  You’re probably telling yourself, ‘sure, this sounds great, but how would we ever accomplish this?’”

Psychedelic Warlord went on to note this would likely be impossible to achieve without bringing down the government.

“I fear we will always have a system of government, one way or another, so we would have to use other means other than totally toppling the government (I don’t think the masses would support such a radical move at this time). We (as a people) would have to do it more or less non-violently, for if we use violence, we would never have the support of the masses of people that make up our society,” Psychedelic Warlord wrote.

The writings also included some youthful attempts at profane humor such as a 1988 poem Psychedelic Warlord crafted for the Cult of the Dead Cow.

“Wax my a s s, Scrub my balls,” Psychedelic Warlord wrote. “The Cow has risen, Provide Milk.”

Finding his superstar: Hagan went on MSNBC to rave about Beto and his "charisma” – and the star-struck journalist may have outdone Faris. He talked about Beto’s sense of “destiny” and how he has “that gleam in his eye." Then he revealed that Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith gave O’Rourke an even greater compliment. Hagan quoted Smith as saying that seeing O’Rourke “in front of people” is “like a ‘Jesus Christ Superstar.’” Yep, journalists thinking a politician is like Jesus. But remember, journalists aren’t in a cult.

They’re worse than Chris Matthews getting that “tingly feeling” in his leg when Obama spoke.

Went to a rally during his Senate campaign to see what the fuss was all about and took my teenage girls, as they were interested. When we arrived, there was a huge line, that soon had to morph into an outside crowd, as the local Republican party staged a 'sit in' in the place where he was to have his rally, so by law, he couldn't go in, until early voting for that day was complete. He was handed a bullhorn and climbed up on an outside area, inches away from the crowd, and spoke for 15 minutes, then moved to a different area and took pictures with all comers for another 30 minutes, until he had to go. His only protection was a handful of campaign workers, with police standing to a side, and the crowd was never less than compliant. He even shushed his followers from jeering protesters who had gathered. I would describe it as control by his personality. I might have peed down both legs, if I was that crushed up on by a combination of old and young people.

NOW, put others in that place, including our current leader.

Who knows if he can stay the course and has the make up to learn and grow as a candidate and leader? He is something different than what is out there, for sure. I think you can gauge how fearful his opponents in both parties are by how much they attack him on his past, in my humble opinion, not his current qualifications. I can guarantee you that whatever he did, it didn't involve multiple affairs, bankruptcy and grabbing women by their privates.

He isn't qualified to run for dog catcher much less POTUS  ... other than flailing his arms around like a lunatic while he does his Ocascio-Kotex imitation he doesn't have a lot going for himself  ...

Sounds like you have a crush on ol’ Beto.

Kirt, I’d appreciate your opinion.  Doesn’t all those fantasies he posted qualify him as a psychopath?  Durn sure sounds like it to me.

He doesn't stand a chance in the Socialist Primaries not only because the mentioned baggage, but because of his white privilege according to many pundits.  I saw a video the other day of them attacking him for running.  He made his father in law hundreds of millions in real estate while on the city council, and hardly anything was said about it.  He s going to become the opposite of Wendy Davis.  What happened to her after she ran for Governor ?  He'd be better off running as a House Representative, because I'm fairly sure that the El Paso leftists would re-elect him.  That's his only shot, unless he moves out of State.  New Mexico seems like the perfect place for him.  Another thing is why does he remind many including myself as this guy :

Yep, all that hubris denotes fear, especially for those who supported a reality TV show star, who was Mobbed up, been sued over 2000 times, had multiple affairs, divorced twice, is unbelievably unfit for his office, had a fake university, had a fake charity, went bankrupt involving casinos, yet still walked away with cash, and who has a ever shrinking group of former campaign workers who aren't in jail or headed there.

Didn't Beto recently give a speech decrying the border wall (or whatever you want to call it) with things like "walls don't work" or "barriers don't work", all the while, the people he was talking to were...

behind barriers.

And if "walls don't work", why are there gated communities?

Speaking of... this is literally Beto's house in El Paso...  Notice what surrounds it...
