Costin Vlad Alamariu (May 21, 1980–)[2] is a Romanian-American nudist, self-described anti-xenoestrogen activist, homophobe and misogynistic anti-semite popularly known for his far-right internet personality, Bronze Age Pervert or BAP.[3][4]

Under the BAP pseudonym, Alamariu has operated many well-known fascist, misogynistic, racist, and transphobic Twitter accounts since 2013. He published the book Bronze Age Mindset (2018) and has hosted a podcast named Caribbean Rhythms since 2019. Obsessed with masculinity, Alamariu describes himself as an "aspiring nudist bodybuilder" and a "free speech and anti-xenoestrogen activist".[5] Alamariu believes women should be reduced to a breeding stock and that men should eat raw meat and dominate society.[4][5][6][7]

A 2022 paper on ecofascism described BAP as "unmistakably fascistoid".[8] The Global Network on Extremism and Technology have noted that "BAP is fixated on the aesthetics of the male human body and presents images that worship the “natural beauty of man”, which he deems to have been buried by the modern 'trash' world".[9] By "trash" he means feminism, soy and seed oils which he mistakenly believes causes masculine decline.[6][10]

Bronze Age Pervert spends a lot of time on social media talking about blowjobs, ejaculation and pornography.

Personal life[edit]

Costin Vlad Alamariu was born on May 21, 1980 in Bucharest, Romania. His parents are Bernard "Andrei" and Aurelia Alamariu.[11] Alamariu and his family immigrated to the United States in 1990[12] and settled in Newton, Massachusetts. There, he attended Newton South High School and graduated in 1998.[13] Bernard Alamariu is a retired electrical research engineer who worked at MIT.[14] Costin's brother, Dan Alamariu, has worked alongside Ian Bremmer, for the Eurasia Group.[15]

Academic career[edit]

Alamariu obtained a bachelor's degree in mathematics from MIT, was a philosophy graduate student at Columbia University, and completed a PhD in political science from Yale University.[16][17]

Columbia Unbecoming[edit]

While a student at Columbia, Alamariu wrote an article for the student newspaper, the Columbia Daily Spectator, titled "The Hypocrisy of Academic Freedom".[18] The article was a response to the Columbia Unbecoming controversy, in which pro-Israel students and activist groups, targeted three pro-Palestinian professors for being biased against Israel. Around the time of the controversy and publication of Alamariu's article, Columbia's undergraduate student body was a quarter Jewish.[19] In his article, Alamariu took the side of the pro-Israel activists and criticized the pro-Palestinian professors. In the article, Alamariu called "Palestinian identity" fictitious and claimed that pro-Palestinian activists were "obsessed with the small state of Israel". Students that studied alongside Alamariu at Columbia, remember him wearing Israel Defence Force shirts on campus.[20]


Alamariu's Yale dissertation is titled The Problem of Tyranny and Philosophy in the Political Thought of Friedrich Nietzsche.[21] Alamariu's thesis advisor was Steven B. Smith, an expert on Leo Strauss. Under "Acknowledgements", Alamariu calls former IDF soldier and JINSA board member, David Sidorsky, an "early mentor".

Bronze Age Mindset[edit]

Alamariu self-published Bronze Age Mindset in 2018. The book contains misogynist racist hogwash:[6]

Misogyny is woven throughout the book. In one passage he declares that “the ‘liberation’ of women makes democracy into a terminal disease […] one that doesn’t just end a particular government, but the civilization.” In later passages of Bronze Age Mindset, the hatred is for migrants: “dwarf-like zombies are imported for slave labor and political agitation from the fly-swept latrines of the world.” According to such visions, a chosen few are conferred the right to fight against this mediocre ugliness — a form of violence justified by and rooted in a particular image of nature.

Claremont Institute review[edit]

In the summer of 2019, Michael Anton, a then-former assistant to President Trump, reviewed BAM in the Claremont Review of Books.[22] The Claremont Institute is neoconservative think tank founded by students of Straussian academic, Harry Jaffa. Anton's review was mostly affable to the book and made very tepid arguments against BAP's fascist ideas. Most of the review was taken up by Anton's astonishment at how well the book was selling on Amazon. Anton noted how seemingly ""tapped-in" BAP was with the youth, despite the fact that BAP is a 43-year-old failed intellectual.

In addition to the favourable review by Anton, Alamariu has a few more ties to Claremont. Harry Jaffa, whose students founded Claremont, was a student under Leo Strauss. Alamariu's dissertation was on Leo Strauss' political philosophy.[23] His first live interview was with Jack Murphy (a.k.a. John Goldman).[24][25] Jack Murphy was a 2021 Lincoln Fellow for the Claremont Institute.[26] Like Alamariu, Jack Murphy preaches open misogyny under the guise of pick-up artistry and other tired manosphere talking points, like a return to hyper-masculinity. Murphy was outed as a cuckold, who made amateur cuckold porn with his wife.[27]

2021 Denver mass shooting[edit]

On December 17, 2021, Lyndon McLeod, aka ‘Roman McClay’, killed 5 people after carrying out shooting in six locations around Denver, Colorado. McLeod's attacked was McLeod was an avid fan of BAP and interacted with BAP's Twitter account many times.[28] He described Bronze Age Mindsetas being a "great book".[29] McLeod was interviewed by British rapper and popular right-wing Twitter personality, Zuby.[30]

Caribbean Rhythms[edit]

Curtis Yarvin (a.k.a. Mencius Moldbug)[edit]

In episode 89 of Caribbean Rhythms, titled "Modldbug on Cold War and Glowies", Alamariu hosted author and Peter Thiel gimp, Curtis Yarvin.[31] Yarvin is a Neoreactionary facsist and racist. Yarvin is funded by billionaire Peter Thiel.[32]

Edward Luttwak[edit]

In episode 110 of Caribbean Rhythms, titled "Ice Cream in Palermo", Alamariu hosted author and neoconservative thinker Edward Luttwak.[33] Like Alamariu, Luttwak was born in Romania to a Jewish family. While living in London in the 1960s, Luttwak lived with prominent neoconservative operative, Richard Perle. Luttwak would then move to Israel to volunteer for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) between 1967 and 1972. In the 1980s, Luttwak was a security consultant to President Reagan.

Extreme beliefs[edit]


Alamariu has a long history of antisemitism.

There is real extremism beneath BAP’s thinly coded statements; HOPE not hate has uncovered posts from his original Twitter account, deleted in 2017, in which he wrote: “for a kike faggot it must be inconceivable to forsake profit for honor”, and “Why would it be a surprise that a Jewish usurer supports fag “marriage”? He also wrote: “If you copulate with seductive Jewess, choose #Shephardic; Reform Ashkenazi whores are filthy”.[4]


I can't name any civilizations that survived racial mixing.
—Bronze Age Pervert[34]

Alamariu refers to non-white regions as a "turd world" and their residents as "shit". He has also fantasized about rebreeding "the original Aryan race, or as close an approximation as possible, through some kind of a Platonic Lebensborn program."[35]

Raw meat[edit]

On his Twitter accounts, Alamariu attacks vegan and vegetarian diets and promotes eating raw meat and eggs.[5][9][10] He recommends a diet similar to the carnivore diet, but also with fruit and raw garlic.

As an "anti-xenoestrogen activist" he campaigns against foods believed to produce estrogen.[9] However, most of what he says about nutrition does not make sense as he promotes raw dairy which contains estrogen.[36]

Sexual posts[edit]

Alamariu is fascinated with blowjobs, ejaculation and pornography and spends a lot of time on social media talking about them.

Question that I've been pondering for over 10 years; I can make myself ejaculate purely by WILL without any physical stimulation, purely from mental concentration. Is it then also possible to make yourself die, again without any physical measures but purely by FOCUS[37]
