Reminder that while the media, feminists, the SJW’s and the “im not racist because I am not white, only whites can be racist!!” crowd are busy trying to spin this into some “Typical Entitled White Male MRA Proves that White Men and Gun Owners are Dangerous Misogynists" and that this had absolutely nothing to do with mental illness, that these are the people he killed. And that these are the facts.
4 men and 2 women. The top 3 men were stabbed. 2 of them were his roommates and the other was visiting. He targeted his roommates specifically, mentioning them in his 141 page manifesto. And the other 3 people, the 2 women and the other guy, were completely random people on the street that he shot. The 2 women outside the locked sorority house and the male in a deli.
Why did he do it?
He hated both men and women, anyone who had sex. And focused on women because obviously he was not gay and was not pissed off that dudes were not lining up to suck his dick. He showed multiple signs of mental issues and psychopathic traits. Displayed inferiority and god complexes and narcissism. His family disclosed that he was diagnosed at a young age as being ‘a highly functional Asperger Syndrome child’ a form of autism. He had been to therapists and was supposed to be taking meds. Reading his manifesto and watching his now (mostly) deleted videos clearly shows how crazy he was. According to his videos, blog, manifesto, and various forums he visited online, he was apparently bullied throughout his life and according to his manifesto, his step mother was just as bad. All of these things have been linked to violent actions such as murder and suicide. Both of which he did. Killed those people than himself with a gunshot to the head. His original plan according to his works was to take a bunch of pills and alcohol after doing his killings.
His original plan for murder
His original plan according to the end of his manifesto was to kill his roommates to secure a killing area where he would not be bothered. Then the would spend time luring people into his home to restrain and torture them (peel their skin, pour boiling water on them etc) and when he finished, to decapitate them. He would collect their heads and put it in a bag of sorts while he went to kill his step mom and brother and steal their SUV to better run people over. He would go to the sorority house (ended up being locked) and would open fire inside before setting the building on fire. He would then drive around shooting and dump the bag of heads all over the streets and continue to shoot at people then end his life with alcohol and the rest of his Xanax and Vicodin he had left.
Typical White Male?
He is of British (father) and Malaysian (mother) decent. Self described Eurasian male. And personally I think (along with many others) that he does not really look white at all. Look at the pic. At the vary least he clearly looks mixed.
The guns he had on him were a Glock 34 and two Sig P226 pistols. He purchased them legally last year along with 400 rounds for the 3 guns. His magazines were all California legal and capped at 10 rounds. All guns and ammo were 9mm. California is know for having one of the strictest gun laws in the country. The other weapons he had on him included 2 machetes, a hammer, a knife, and the car he used to hit people.
Could this have been prevented?
Before his began his plan, he made a series of videos with some details of who and why he wanted to kill. He sent the links to his family and his mother, worried, called the police. They went to his house to talk to him. In his manifesto he talks about how the police showed up and asked him some questions and how scared he was that they would foil his plan. But how relieved he was when the police found nothing suspicious and left.
Local Isla Vista news sites and live police conferences that aired and the wiki page that linked to the primary sources at the bottom, his YouTube videos (mostly deleted but out for download) and his 141 page manifesto and screen shots of his comments on forums and YouTube account (will give on request)
So what do we know? Also a slight tl;dr
- half British and half Malaysian
- self described “Eurasian”
- bullied by peers and step mother
- mental health issues (narcissism, god and inferiority complex, autism)
- on Xanax and Vicodin (apparently not on his meds)
- had been to therapists
- hated both men and women that had sex, and women more specifically for not hooking up with him (which makes sense, he wasnt gay, not exactly furious men were not hooking up with him, but pretty pissed they could get girls)
- planned out his murders, wanted to kill both men and women
- killed 6 people, 4 men and 2 women
- injured 13, 8 by gunfire and 4 by blunt object (probably the hammer)
- police had a chance to prevent this, but did not
- seemingly came from a liberal background family
- his YouTube channel is subscribed to “The Young Turks” a highly left wing channel
- bought his guns legally last year
- California has one of the toughest gun laws
- of the 6 people he killed, 3 were with a knife (all men)
- 2 of the men he targeted, they were his roommates, they were with a friend (3rd male victim)
What the media and people on social media are saying
With the above information, lets look at how the media and social media sites are saying about this event, including folks here on tumblr. I will focus on the anti gun crowd, the feminists, the SJW’s, people that bring up race (both POC and white people) and the media in general.
- proof of war on women
- he was an MRA and/or visited MRA sites
- "typical" white male (with mentions of white male mass shooters and shoddy sites like mother jones, a many times debunked anti gun site, as proof)
- the shooting has nothing to do with mental health and that people are using that as an excuse
- he suffered from “white male entitlement”
- gun nut (sometimes linking him to the stereotypical right wing white male gun owner)
- made the tragic event about women, as if women were the sole victims, completely erasing the male victims that were the bulk of the dead
- ignored half the kills were with a knife and focused on the gun only acting like it was what killed everyone
- used this as proof that its ok for women to fear all men and suspect all men as potential murderers
- made fun of the “not all men” comments by men and women (saying that not all men are crazy murdering killers) while mostly acting like men were the only ones saying this, despite how hard they say “not all women” or “not all feminists” or POC or gay people etc when people point out their flaws and errors
I wonder why they are trying to paint such a different picture here. They seem to really be focusing on making this about women (throwing out 1 in 3 women are raped figures for example, also debunked to be incredibly false) and that he was an “entitled white male” and part of the MRA community.
He is about as white as Obama and Zimmerman (fun fact, both are half white)
A lot of his YouTube videos might be taken down so here is a link to download most of them
Personally, I am not surprised. I dont want to bring in race here but I think I have to at this point. With a lot of shootings, the media (which is clearly anti gun, so much for unbiased news and facts only and leaving the opinions at home huh) is reacting fast as they can to get the ratings and the top story and shootings are the fastest and easiest way to do this.
If we think back to a few months ago with the Maryland Mall shooting, the first things being talked about was gun control right off that bat. There was no shame to parade views and ideologies on the misfortune of others. The infamous “AR-15” was being mentioned along with all the buzzwords like military assault rifle (AR-15 is not an assault rifle, and the AR in the name stands for ArmaLite, the original manufacturer) and so on. People already began to assume it was a white male. Turns out the media quickly let the story die while everyone was waiting for details on the shooter of this “mass shooting” Despite them reading supposed “tweets” from people in the mall talking about “gunfire everywhere”
Shooter ended up as a black guy who bought his shotgun, a Mossberg 500, not long after Marylands new gun laws before killing 2 and them himself. As it turns out, he suffered from mental health issues too. Police said he was fascinated with the Columbine shooting and had researched mental health issues and suicide chat lines. In 2013 he has visited doctors and described hearing voices in his head. He was told to go to a psychiatrist but did not go. His journal revealed he was sad and depressed and suicidal and contemplated killing others and himself.
No AR-15. No “typical white male” and no “mass shooting”
The Navy Yard shooter as well. Not only were the police told to stand down, the “base” was unarmed and the MP there was disarmed and the shooter used a Remington shotgun. Not an AR-15. And the shooter was black. Before the details came out the media along with people in general acted in a similar fashion. Assumed white shooter, that it was an AR-15 that was used. The story was much bigger as more people died than in Maryland, but despite the coverage it got, it too quickly died. He too suffered mental issues. He claimed to hear voices from the walls and microwave and people that knew him described violent mood swings and he had reported himself to the police as dangerous because of the voices. He was described as a paranoid man. Alexis had been treated multiple times for psychological issues, including sleep deprivation, anger and paranoia. Most recently they said he had been treated at a VA Hospital in New England.
Obtaining info on the shooters, the guns, their pictures, and the victims (as in the with the Maryland shooter) became pretty tedious.
Moving from that, the recent FT Hood shooting had been seeking help for PTSD, and it is no secret that the government has been less than adequate in its care of soldiers and with mental health especially. With this came the typical white male comments. He killed 3 then himself. Yet 5 years earlier with the 2009 shooting by Nidal Malik Hasan that ended up killing 13 people and injuring 30+ others, people claimed terrorism because he was a Muslim and the politically correct crowd and media and SJW’s etc cried racism. Ultimately it was considered “work place violence” though he screamed “ALLAHU AKBAR” (god is great, often shouted by terrorists before suicide bombing or before and during attacks) And was described as anti social and anti American by his co workers and showed stress and depression as someone that dealt with soldiers with PTSD often. Again, mental health.
So why mention these shooting? Well, if you had not noticed, the media will act differently with with mixed race people.
Obama is half white, looks black, is considered and referred to as black.
Zimmerman is half white half hispanic, media got in trouble for manipulating audio and pics to paint him as white racist, despite his very anti racist past (message me for details) and looks hispanic. Called white by media and people.
Elliot Rodger, half white half asian, doesnt really look white (up to the individual) ir at the very least its obvious he is mixed, considered and called white by the media.
Nidal Malik Hasan, arab all the way, has fairly white skin.
Yet the media did not refer to him as white at all. With these shooters, it appears if they can get away with calling them white, they will. It seems to depend on if their skin is white or close to it, and if their name is white sounding.
George Zimmerman, Barrack Obama, Elliot Rodger, Nidal Malik Hasan.
It seems that the media is actively trying to paint white men as violent sexists and dangerous and the whole gun community in general despite the many minority and women gun owners and the vast majority of murderers rapists and shooters being black and hispanic. Shootings in the ghetto that yield 4+ wounded or dead (what is needed to list it as mass shooting) never seems to make it to the news to be talked about for days or weeks.
Unless its too big to avoid discussion like the Virginia Tech shooting, the media seems to ignore non white shootings mostly, but act desperate enough to jump on shooting, sometimes jumping the gun and assuming it to be white shooter with an AR-15, only for them to kill the story once its revealed other wise.
That and the very obvious lack of knowledge on the details of the shootings and guns themselves used in these shootings. Sandy Hook and the Aurora Batman theater shootings being one example. (backtracking and corrections on guns present and used and where they were found etc and the AR-15 from the theater being tossed after a jam and ultimately going unused while leading people to believe it was the main weapon)
And the media either doesnt care or does it on purpose, because majority of people seem to eat it up and accept it at face value as the gospel truth and people like me, are labeled as crazy and enablers and murder sympathizers and worse than the NRA (often called a terror group that actively endorses murder)
And with all this, mental illness is ignored and people go around claiming its only mentioned to hide the “real” issues, white men and their guns.
The Aurora Colorado theater shooter, James Holmes also suffered from mental illness. He had been to at least 3 mental health professionals at the University of Colorado. One of the people we saw reported he made homicidal statements about the public while his acquaintances believed him to be violent.
The Virginia Tech shooter also suffered from mental health issues. In middle school, he was diagnosed with a severe anxiety disorder known as selective mutism, as well as major depressive disorder. After this diagnosis he began receiving treatment and continued to receive therapy and special education support until his junior year of high school. During Cho’s last two years at Virginia Tech, several instances of his abnormal behavior, as well as plays and other writings he submitted containing references to violence, caused concern among teachers and classmates. As a child, his family thought him to be different and he did not associate well with others. Teachers had him removed for “menacing” behavior.
Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook shooter was seen at Yale Child Study Center as a teen and was given the antidepressant Celaxa. His family said around the time we was 11 or 12 he became stressed and frustrated and sad. He was prone to anxiety and becoming more distant and isolated. According to police, he displayed a profound autism spectrum disorder with lack of comprehension and social interaction and communication and was also diagnosed with severe OCD. His doctors described him as “emotionally paralyzed” He would change clothes and sock constantly and continuously wash his hands and refused to touch door knobs and was sensitive to light. They were soon to discuss schizophrenia but that never happened due to the shooting.
Yet plenty of people will argue that mental health has no play in these shootings and only serves and an excuse to hide the real issues of gun control and white male entitlement and so on.
Even moving away from the shootings you see how the media acts with crime in general with races. Making a point to mention the criminal was white over and over while referring to a black criminal as a “youth” or something or just refusing to mention race and just call them by name.
The knockout game, where someone (almost exclusively black) would sucker punch someone (almost exclusively white) trying to get a knockout. It even lead to the death of a WWII vet. One botched attempt lead to a elderly woman shooting her attacker. People in the media and online called this game an urban legend created by white racists to paint blacks in a bad light. Until that is, when a Jewish woman was attacked. Then it became this whole thing about antisemitism and how “people” were playing this game leaving out the black players and the white victims.
Media will also make sure to tell you that white on black crimes were racially motivated even though race had no play at all, while leaving out race with black on white crimes. A boy is Missouri was burned alive by 2 black teens that chased him and said “this is what you deserve white boy” while being set aflame. The police said they were “investigating” if race had anything to do with it.
Give me a break.
Just some food for thought.
