It didnt help that Alexandra was a German princess while they were at war with Germany and the Russian people thought that Rasputin and Alexandra were having an affair.I recently read Douglas Smith's biography of Rasputin, and in it he makes the case, rather effectively, that almost all of the most sensational stories about Rasputin were pure fabrication. He uses Okhrana (the Czarist secret police) records to document that, for instamce, on the night that newspapers accused him of whipping his dick out at a fancy restaurant, the multiple agents following him reported him not even entering the place. Rasputin was a Christian mystic, sure, and a womanizer, but he was a relatively unexceptional example of each of those classes for the time and place he lived in: his piety was orthodox and remarkable only in its tolerance, and his womanizing was that of a robust peasant rather than the degenerate perversions he was accused of. Even the most famous story about him - that it required poisoning, shooting, freezing, and finally drowning to finally kill Grigory - is based on nothing more than the self-serving memoirs of his assassin, and is flatly contradicted by the evidence of the autopsy performed on Rasputin.
It seems rather that huge swaths of Russian society suffered from what I might call Rasputin Derangement Syndrome. It united both the dissatisfied on the far Right and those on the far Left, as well as bourgeois liberals and some among the royal family. Antisemitic clerical nationalists conspired with literal Bolsheviks in plots to remove Rasputin's influence, and they were all driven to the sort of frothing excesses that would make even the most extreme modern TDS sufferer pause. The ultimate cause - if I may speculate and editorialize - was the Russian elite's inability to reconcile their conception of Russia as the most important and powerful nation in the world, in whose hands the fate of the planet was held, with the reality that it was a backwards, second-rate power ruled over by a bloated but ineffective bureaucracy. Under these circumstances, this peasant from Siberia raised suddenly to the rank of Imperial favorite served as a scapegoat on which the resentments of all parties could be projected.
He looks like Gilbert Gottfried and Jean-Paul Sarte somehow reproduced.Allen Ginsberg from the 'Beat Generation' Poets. He was a massive homo with his dad and sometimes wrote about getting boners whenever he slept with him, his mom was a batshit insane schizo who walked naked around the house and believed the government was sending her brain-scanning waves through the radio, which made Allen consider getting her a lobotomy. He was also a supporter of the NAMbLA. Oh, and he looked like this
I can never help but laugh everytime I see Ashida Kim. If we want to go down this route id throw in Count Dante, that guy is something else. He would advertise in comic books as the "Deadliest Man Alive" who could kill in one touch.Frank Dux and Ashida Kim are both prolific martial arts lolcows and IIRC, have been mentioned in the old thread on martial arts lolcows in Community Watch.
Frank Dux is notable for being one of the few lolcows alive today to get a major motion picture based on him. And is definitely the only one where Hollywood depicted his version of the story.

Most of the Beat Generation were lolcows. If there was a Kiwifarms back then, they'd relentlessly mock Kerouac's books.Allen Ginsberg from the 'Beat Generation' Poets.

The Tim Burton film on him is great. It really captures his eccentricity in the way only Tim Burton can, I guess. The dude was obsessed with the feeling of Angora rabbit fur. Probably would have been a furry if he was contemporary.View attachment 1960004
Ed Wood, while he was not Chris Chan levels of pathetic. He was your typical self-absorbed careercow who never took criticism and deemed those who pointed out the flaws of his films as mere haters who didn’t understand him. Bela Legosi, the narrator of Plan 9 From Outer Space and the most famous incarnation of Dracula who was a good friend of Wood at one point, once said that Wood was one of his worst experiences working with someone in his entire career in one of his last interviews. Needless to say, he was blacklisted from Hollywood after people got tired of his constant altercations with other film makers and then lived in the streets of LA for the rest of his days.
He also might’ve been a closest troon as well considering he crossdressed when nobody was around to see him. He died from a heart attack after years of alcohol abuse and since then he’s regraded as one of the worst film makers in Post-war history.
To be fair, writing 300+ pages of incoherent vulgar shitposts just to offend people is Kiwi afMost of the Beat Generation were lolcows. If there was a Kiwifarms back then, they'd relentlessly mock Kerouac's books.
What a read.
Francis E. Dec Esq. was never a lolcow in any capacity: he was a prophet from another dimension or possibly a time traveler, and our brains could never match his. Sadly he died before the world could know he was a true prophet with all of the answers of the universe.If you consider Francis E. Dec the original lolcow
