Elliot Rodger: Spree Killer, Misogynist, Guns, Bigot and PrivilegedRich Kid

Self described as “drop dead gorgeous, fabulous, stylish, exotic gem among thousands of rocks” and “a superior Alpha male.”
Spree killing are horrible enough. In fact any shooting is a horrible act even if in self-defense. 

The horror is compounded when news come forth he was reported by his parents as acting in a dangerous manner. The police visit the killer and are satisfied when the reach kid pleaded "all is OK" and there is a misunderstanding in his family.

I really cannot avoid going negative here. some will not care for what follows, but reality is what it is and privilege reality. The 22 year old killer is the son of Peter Rodger,  a wealthy assistant director of the movie "The Hunger Games." While, I am not sure the police who visited the young killer was aware of his background, there is a stark reality that is not shared among all Americans. 

The reality? Do you believe the unhealthy, or moreover, the black of Latino reported to the police would have avoided a look around their dwelling. I imagine a quick visit and few questions would be possible, but I serious doubt the police would have left the dwelling without first doing a "look-around." Let's think in terms of finding the killer's three legally possessed pistols and the four hundred rounds of ammo in the killers possession.  Do you recall "Beer-Gate?"  

While a world part from southern California, Harvard Professor and historian Henry Gates was arrested by Cambridge Mass. police after forcing entry into into his own home. A neighbor called the police.

An audience with a President who spoke frankly about Cambridge Police Department and the arrest of Professor Gates.
Worlds apart and a universe asunder!  Rodger excused as "clean and contrite; Gates handcuffed (for making a scene and arrested.   

Regardless of appearance the difference in treatment by some police officers when race is a factor, generally does not end well. The Rodger's case did not end well.

There is much more to the spree killing than Rodgers overwhelming misogyny, and his "never having kissed a girl." In addition to the latter being a personal problem and a problem of choice, the circumstance relates to eh killer's psychological state. Let's face it there exist a girl on this Earth would would gladly have shared a few intimate moments with Rodgers.

Apparently, some of the "girls' Rodgers held in contempt were observed hanging-out with "black guys."   Wouldn't you know!   Also are you surprised? Oh, you so tire of race at the core of much of our societal wrongs?

Elliot Rodger, Isla Vista Shooting Suspect, Posted Racist Messages on Misogynistic Website

By Josh Glasstetter on May 24, 2014
Rodger was a frequent poster on, an online forum known for its misogyny. “Pua” stands for pickup artist, and the site is supposedly dedicated to exposing deceptive “pickup artists,” dating gurus and so-called seduction experts who take money from men without getting them dates or sex. 

As Jezebel’s Katie J.M. Baker explained in a 2012 article on PuaHate, there is some merit to criticizing sleazy and deceptive “pickup artists.” However, the men at PuaHate tend to take their frustrations out on women instead of the scammers. The result is a deeply misogynistic online forum. 
Rodger, however, apparently did not only hate women. His PuaHate postings include rants against interracial dating and black, Asian and Indian men. 
In January, Rodger posted a message, entitled “Saw a black guy sitting with 4 white girls,” in which he expressed his outrage over white women socializing with minority men: 

Today I drove through the area near my college and saw some things that were extremely rage-inducing. 
I passed by this restaurant and I saw this black guy chilling with 4 hot white girls. He didn’t even look good. 

Then later on in the day I was shopping at Trader Joe’s and saw an Indian guy with 2 above average White Girls!!! 

What rage-inducing sights did you guys see today? Don’t you just hate seeing these things when you go out? It just makes you want to quit life.

When another poster said he was being racist, Rodger responded with disbelief that white women were interested in these “undeserving” men instead of him:

I don’t understand how these guys do it.\ 

Here we are suffering on PuaHate when these lesser, undeserving men that I saw today are walking around with hot girls. It doesn’t make sense.

In another January thread, Rodger responded to a post from an Asian male asking if a certain pair of shoes would help him attract white women. Rodger told him:

Shoes won’t help you get white girls. White girls are disgusted by you, silly little Asian.

The other man responded by posting what purported to be photos of himself with an attractive white woman. Rodger dismissed the photos as fake and added:

Full Asian men are disgustingly ugly and white girls would never go for you. You’re just butt hurt that you were born as an asian piece of shit, so you lash out by linking these fake pictures. You even admit that you wish you were half white. You’ll never be half-white and you’ll never fulfill your dream of marrying a white woman. I suggest you jump off a bridge.
It will be interesting to see if major media reports on Rodger including mention of a quirky twist in his views on race.  Of course, being a bigot pales to his ultimate heinous acts, but the profile of hatred comes full circle from narcissistic, through misogyny and settles in a bed with racism as a conjoining bed cover.
