The rise of the far-right has accelerated in recent years and the US presidential elections in 2016, along with the emergence of other nationalist movements across Europe, are evidence of this. Very few people have kindled the conservative fire like Mike Cernovich. He is an American social media personality, blogger, conspiracy theorist, and a man with rather unconventional views on events happening around the world.
Who is Mike Cernovich? Bio
Mike Cernovich was born on 17 November 1977 in Illinois, USA. His mother, Diana Lynn, suffered from mental illness, and Mike’s birth name was the same as his father’s – Michael John Cernovich. Mike grew up in the farm town of Kewanee, Illinois, and is a devout Christian home. Cernovich attended the University of Illinois, and when that was done, he joined the law faculty at Pepperdine University.
His career began when Cernovich launched a legal weblog called “Crime & Federalism” in 2004. His early work focused on male empowerment, anti-feminism, and some guides to encountering women. Over the years, Cernovich has found a way to constantly spread his rather “disturbing” views. In 2014 Gamergate was introduced by Cernovich with tweets like “Who cares about breast cancer and rape? Not me”.
Gamergate was never far from controversy. Several women in the video game industry were harassed by internet trolls. Cernovich wrote his self-published help book “Gorilla Mindset” in 2015. In it, he shared his views on how women should submit to “dominant alpha males”.
He became really influential when he became part of the Manosphere Movement. He brought his theories to the national level and falsely claimed during the 2016 presidential election in the United States that Hilary Clinton was in fact quite ill. He claimed that she had a “seizure disorder” and Parkinson’s disease. Thanks to the magic of the Internet, the hashtag #HilarysHealth had become a trendy topic on Twitter in September of the same year with 240,000 page views, and his views were seen over 100 million times.
When the false conspiracy theory of Pizzagate came up and claimed that child sex rings were rampant in Washington D.C., Cernovich helped popularize the theory. As soon as Cernovich sees one of them as his opponent, he quickly branded such a person or group as a pedophile. But let’s not forget, Cernovich has written about his own questionable sexual exploitation. Here is an extract from his other controversial activities. Cernovich has accused the Democratic Party of making an attempt on his life.
Mike has also criticized the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for speaking in a gender-separated mosque. He wrote in August 2012 that rape “does not exist”. Cernovich advocated the conspiracy theory that the chemical attack by Khan Shaykhun in Syria was a swindle financed by an American financier. He linked the shooting of Sutherland Springs to the Antifa.
Cernovich has a rather obscure sexual history. He was accused of rape in 2003 but was only convicted of a misdemeanor of assault. He advised men to masturbate in front of women who are not ready for sexual acts.
Mike Cernovich was married twice in his life. He had married his first wife in 2003 when he was still a law student. The marriage lasted until 2011 when his first wife filed for divorce. During their marriage she became a successful lawyer in Silicon Valley, taking her company public and making millions. When her divorce was finalized, Cernovich received a huge seven-figure sum as part of his divorce settlement. Cernovich claims that the main reason his marriage to his first wife broke up was that she had given in to feminist ideals.
Mike met his second wife Shauna shortly after his divorce from his first wife. Shauna Cernovich was born Shauna Ghofranian and comes from a Persian Muslim family that immigrated to the US from Iran. She received her bachelor’s degree in 2009 after studying at UC Irvine. Her professional career includes a number of companies such as BCBG Max Azria, CraveOnline Media LLC & Nordstrom. The couple lives together in Southern California and has a child together, a daughter named Cyra Cernovich.
