Incels embrace Capital Gazette shooter but only after they learn he harassed a woman
We Hunted the Mammoth ^ | June 30, 2018 | David Futrelle

By David Futrelle

Several hours after the news broke that a gunman had shot five people dead at the Capital Gazette newspaper offices in Annapolis, Maryland, but before we knew much of anything about the shooter himself, I took a look at the forums on Incels.me to see if anyone on the site was saying anything about this latest mass killing.

Incels, after all, have an almost reflexive tendency to praise or excuse anyone who kills a high enough number of the “normies” incels consider their sworn enemies, and many of them worship incel mass killer Elliot Rodger as a virtual saint.

But no one there seemed much interested in this particular killer. “[P]rolly some political kind of shit given that it’s a newspaper,” wrote someone called mutant in a not-very-busy thread on the topic, “really it’s only normals who care about left v right.”

Several hours later, we learned that the Annapolis shooter’s anger at the media — and at the Capital Gazette — had its roots in the newspaper’s coverage of his conviction for harassing a former high-school classmate on Facebook. Though she didn’t remember going to school with him, she told the paper, she tried to be nice because it seemed like he was having a rough time. But he quickly turned on her, allegedly bombarding her with threats and trying to get her fired from her job. Ultimately, the future shooter pleaded guilty to pleaded guilty to one count of harassment — and then started directing his ire at the Capital Gazette for having the gall to write about his case in a way he thought was unfair. (A court disagreed, dismissing his defamation suit against the paper.)

Well, this bit of news woke the murder fans on Incels.me right up, and soon they were hailing the Capital Gazette shooter as a new hero.

“Praise the saint,” wrote someone called JeffGoldblumInTheFly.

“When will he be canonised?” asked AfrikanCel.

“The newspaper was bullying him for being incel and Jarrod Ramos stood up to his bullies,” added incel4life. ” Jarrod Ramos is a hero.”

“Bless His Heart,” agreed doktordoom, “death to the media.”

A few of the commenters wondered if their new hero had managed to kill any “femoids” — that is, women — in his rampage.

“Did he score at least one femoid frag?” asked the aptly named evildoer.

In fact, he killed two women. “I don’t condone shootings,” noted someone called Jackson14, “but anyways looking at the victims one was a Stacy.”

This last assertion proved somewhat controversial, because the possible “Stacy” in question was a bit older than most incels consider ideal. “Maybe Stacy from 30 years ago,” grumbled Notgoingtomakeit.

“Come on man you don’t think she is hot?” Jackson14 asked.

Not everyone on the incels.me forums considers Ramos a saint, though. Someone called AR15 was unimpressed with his body count. “Weak score tbh,” he sniffed.

Others were unimpressed with his looks. “Homeboy look like a Lamb Of God tribute act :lul: ,” wrote one. “He legit looks like an egg.” added another.

Somehow I suspect that all the “sex redistribution” in the world wouldn’t transform any of these guys into actual decent people. It would just put more women at risk.

Yes, I'm aware Futrelle is an anti-Trump liberal, but these particular liberals are doing yeomen's work exposing these crazed sickos, who make most anti-Trumpers look positively civilized in comparison. More conservatives should help them spread the word about these friggin' incels. It would be one of the few threads the two sides have in common nowadays.

Involuntary celibate - means he can’t get laid so save his life, so he takes the lives of others.

Hope that clears it up for ya...

Can’t stand not to disparage legitimate grievances against American women, can you?

Futrelle is a crazed loon. A beta cuck with glory hole face (numale grimace) if there ever was one. Futrelle links incels to Trump and his supporters, which is an outright lie.

Women refusing to have sex with you is a legitimate grievance?

No, but her taking shots, and conflating those who’ve disagreed with blatant female chauvinism, is.

“Plausible excuse” is in no way “truth.”

This has to be some kind of 4chan joke like Free Bleeding, right?

Short for “involuntary celibates” if you can believe it.

They have such hatred against women. I wonder if Islam gets recruits from them? I hadn’t heard of incels until recently. Do they do normal things like hold down jobs? Did they wake up at 30 and realize life is harder than a video game and blame women? I don’t get it, not that I want to.

No, it’s not. These incels are real, and they want to kill off people who are more sexually successful than they are.

Note: incel was originally a term describing all involuntary celibates. However, the term has come to be associated with the male subset thereof that harbor hatred and ill will toward women and the men who are successful with them.

Full disclosure: I am unfortunately celibate also, but I certainly do not want to be associated with these psychos. Therefore, I would prefer to refer to myself and other decent-minded male celibates as bachelors (the way it used to be) or “designated bachelors.”

I don’t know. I went to the links in the story. It kind of looks like play-acting to me.

That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if it drew in a mentally unstable true believer or two.
