On Elliot Rodger

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation” 
― Henry David Thoreau

THE STORY SO FAR: In California 22-year-old Elliot Rodger kills his three (male) housemates and takes to the streets shooting at people after posting YouTube videos online detailing his plans. Internet feminists immediately claim he was either an MRA or somehow influenced by the Men's Rights Movement.

So I went and checked out the Elliot Rodger 'Retribution' video (and others) just to make sure what it was he actually said, and it's unequivocally clear that the guy explicitly hated the entire human race, not just women:
"All of you men, for living a better life than me, all you sexually active men, I hate you, I hate all of you and I can't wait to give you what you deserve: Utter annihilation".
It's a sad thing to see, as the guy's clearly gone over the edge into maniacal delusion but the pain inside him is palpable too - his voice trembles with emotion as he describes what he feels to be a life of cruelly imposed isolation and rejection that he just can't take anymore. And then he does that eerie supervillain laugh and you realize just how completely far gone he actually is.

Just in case it needs to be stated, there is no connection of any kind to the men's rights movement. He never once mentions feminism in his videos or in his 137 page 'manifesto', which can be found online. Instead he speaks of being beaten up and bullied by males, the pain of seeing attractive couples walking along happily together, and the feeling of betrayal when a (male) friend told him he didn't want to be friends any more.

Elliot Rodger appears to have basically been an annoying, arrogant, spoiled and narcissistic brat - with a long history of mental illness and Asperger's - incapable of dealing with the jealousy and envy he said he felt since a child:
"Jealousy and envy… those are two feelings that would dominate my entire life and bring me immense pain. The feelings of jealousy I felt at nine-years-old were frustrating, but they were nothing compared to how I would feel once I hit puberty and have to watch girls choosing other boys over me."
He wanted women but he hated men, especially those he saw succeed that he believed to be lesser than him. Which is why four of the six people he killed were men. Five of seven if you count Rodger too. These weren't acts of misogyny but of revenge upon the entire world.

The feminist claims that these murders were motivated in any way by the men's human rights movement are without any doubt entirely unfounded and a pretty laughably shoddy attempt to scapegoat any opposing opinion on men and women and the state of modern society but their own.

On the other hand, perhaps someone should point out that the continued demonizing and vilification of all men (overwhelmingly emanating from feminism more than any other source) is the surest way anyone knows of to make a whole lot more Elliot Rodgers, and radical feminism in particular is basically a factory daily toiling towards no other purpose.

If you genuinely want to prevent more deaths such as these, sparked by rootless alienation and loneliness, consider leaving aside unfounded ideological models of 'male privilege' and 'patriarchal oppression' and try seeing the society that presently trivializes and mocks, ignores and dismisses all male disadvantage and suffering at every turn, instead of attacking those people trying to fix it.

Another Yewtree Pensioner Cleared of False Rape Accusations

In the UK the past couple of years just about every minor (male) TV celebrity from the 1970s, it seems, has been hounded and witch-hunted with accusations of rape or sexual assault by a police investigation called 'Operation Yewtree', at the behest of anonymous, identity-protected women who waited FORTY YEARS(!) to come forward and point fingers.

And of course, as I predicted, one by one they are all being found innocent. The latest faded pensioner to be falsely accused, arrested and then eventually cleared is comedian Freddie Starr. One look at the poor bastard’s face tells you what a year on bail for a sex crime can do to a human being. What an absolute nightmare.

One day people are going to look back at this Kafkaesque age of free-for-all false rape accusations and consider it one of the worst witchhunts and miscarriages of justice in all human history, and I hope those people responsible for the legislations which led to it are still alive to face punishment for it themselves.

"Freddie Starr appeared briefly outside his home in Warwickshire alongside his lawyer Dean Dunham, who condemned the investigation and said the entertainer’s health was now a priority.
Mr Dunham said “there was simply never any evidence in this matter that was anywhere near sufficient” to keep his client on bail for so long.
Mr Dunham went on: “At the moment we need to concentrate on getting Freddie back to his health.”The lawyer said there various courses of action open to Starr but now was not the right time to comment on them.
"He’s a man of good character, remains a man of good character, and I would ask the public now to stand by this man," he added."No doubt about it, his innocence has been proven."
Starr said he was “very relieved”, adding: “I’m not feeling well, really.”
Asked if he had a message for his fans, he said: “Thank you.”
