Last night there was a shooting near the UC Santa Barbara campus in Isla Vista that left 7 people dead including the shooter.
Now, more details have come out about the shooter and his motive.
The Gunman’s Name is Elliot Rodger. Last night, he posted a chilling manifesto to youtube that has since been removed.
On the video, he announced that he is a 22 year old Virgin who has never been kissed he says. He goes on say,
“It’s not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls have never been attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it. It’s an injustice, a crime, because I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I’m the perfect guy, and yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men, instead of me, the supreme gentleman.”
“I will punish all of you for it,” he says again, and then he laughs.
“On the day of retribution I will enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB, and I will slaughter every single spoiled stuck up blonde slut I see inside there. All those girls that I’ve desired so much, they would have all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them. While they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes. I’ll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am in truth the superior one. The true Alpha Male.”
According to the Daily Kos, the “true Alpha Male” reference has a deeper meaning.
The true Alpha Male. What those who call themselves the Mens Rights Movement aspire to be.
The Men’s Rights Movement as they call themselves is a nebulous group of pickup artists and misogynists who’ve found each other on line, and are attempting to create a movement based around their hatred, disdain, and fear of women.
