Analysis / Bias
Aurini, according to Rationalwiki, is a “race realist” (which he insists isn’t “racism”), white nationalist, neo-reactionary, vlogger, and novelist.” They describe his Vlogs as “His vlog posts typically deal in misogyny, evolutionary psychology, and complaints about white knights, along with some healthy fascist fanfare and racism for good measure.”
Stares at the World blog covers such topics as Politics, Science Fiction, Theology, And Women. Davis M.J. Aurini also publishes misogynist videos about women such as: “The Most Decadent Sluts Since the Fall of Rome.” According to The Daily Dot article, Davis M.J. Aurini also contributes to blogger and men’s rights activist Roosh. Davis M.J. Aurini also produces videos for a fee under Aurinis-Insight.
In review, Stares at the World publishes stories (vlogs) with loaded emotional headlines that lean strongly right such as: “A Donald Trump Victory is Vital for Our Future.” Further, most articles/vlogs are typically sourced through quotes rather than linking.
Overall, we rate Stares at the World as a questionable source due to extreme right-wing bias, poor sourcing, and questionable content regarding race and gender. (M. Huitsing 10/5/2017) Updated (10/27/2021)
