claudelechat:

I just realized why people cling to magical thinking — why they insist on believing that the universe needs a clock keeper to wind it periodically. That someone comes by each autumn to paint the leaves red. You get the idea.

It’s because a clock keeper can be bribed. If you…

This is known as the Just-World Fallacy.

Are there solid details about the victims yet? Last I read only three were male.

Anonymous

:

3 stabbing víctims were his male roommates, another one was a man he shot in a deli, and the other two besides himself were two sorority members. If this was about hating women it’s a bit odd to me that most of his victims are male.

This comment completely ignores the entire order of events. The guy first stabbed his roommates then went to a sorority house to carry out his woman-killing agenda AS STATED IN VIDEO.

There, no one answered the door so he shot three women who were outside (killing two). It was only after exchanging fire with police (and reportedly getting a bullet in his hip) that he got back behind the wheel and just started gunning people down drive-by style.

This order is important because it reveals that what happened was not exactly what he planned. Are you even really suggesting he wasn’t after women? This was all about a rich white male who wasn’t able to procure a woman quite as easily as the BMW delivered by his mommy.

Elliot Rodger, Gunman in California Mass Shooting, was influenced by the "Men's Rights Movement" →

Rodgers was influenced by [The Men’s Rights] movement, as he was subscribed to multiple “pick up artist” or “mens rights” channels on YouTube. (For those here that don’t use YouTube, when a user subscribes to a channel, they receive notifications when that channel posts a new video.)

So, to challenge me, you link me to a page that asserts the shooters interest in the Men’s Rights Movement is just an oversimplification? Isn’t that kind of admitting it had a role? (Please don’t actually answer this, I have no interest in talking to you, you pile of shit.)

No one’s saying he did this 100% because of the men’s rights movement. I’m just pointing out how interesting it is that someone who had a lot of anger toward women and the capacity to terrorize them took the time to watch these particular videos. Kind of makes you wonder if others in the MRM aren’t just exploring their own hatred of women. Let me give you a hint, dipshit: They are.

a man went on a rampage because girls weren’t interested in him, but god forbid the way society shows women as prizes to be had have any affect on his thought processes.

Seven dead including gunman in ‘mass murder’ California shooting
Seven people have been killed in a shooting near a college campus in California, in what authorities described as “premeditated mass murder”. Seven more people were injured, one with injuries police said were life-threatening and required surgery. Full story here

Here’s this thing: This guy is a terrorist. If the shooter was a Muslim driving around saying he was going to shoot Christians, or a communist saying he would kill all capitalists, it would be hands down a case of terrorism.

Robert Redford may play televangelist Oral Roberts →

I don’t know if you all know who Oral Roberts is, but he’s basically the man who demanded, in the 1980s, viewers of his TV show send him $80 Million dollars or else God would kill him.

He also founded a particularly right-wing, Christo-Fascist university in Oklahoma which produced such horrible fucking cancers on society as Michele Bachmann, professional liar David Barton and manipulative fuck Joel Osteen.

Knowing what I know about Robert Redford, I’m guessing this won’t exactly be a loving tribute.

‘Gentle’ Quebec man who slapped teen daughter to death after she failed to finish chores gets 60 days in jail →

A man beat a child to death, but did he kill her, or was it, THE WILL OF GOD?

“I lost my daughter, but it was the will of God,” Sidime told Quebec Court Judge Richard Marleau. “I am not violent.”

Oh, he must be a good-at-heart man, not a violent monster. He shouldn’t spend the rest of his life in jail for child abuse and murder because he believes in God! Let’s give him 2 months instead!
