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 ,” 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.
Some incels have jobs. Some others are NEETs (Not in Employment, Education or Training). Then they blame their looks or some (possibly imaginary) mental illness for their lack of succes with women, when the women actually don’t like their UNEMPLOYED, UNAMBITIOUS @$$es.
Not an argument.
And yet... I pause because.... knowing what I know about the Fake News media, can I take anything they say for granted? Not any more....
Which are what, exactly?
Legitimate grievances would be:
how the courts, particularly family courts, are heavily stacked in favor of the woman.
how traditional dating is essentially dead, replaced by app-swiping and making sure “consent” is signed, sealed and filed in triplicate
how false accusations of assault can run a man’s life in a heartbeat
Toxic femininity is ruining this country.
Might be careful with the word `bachelor’. It used to be a euphemism for homosexual, especially `confirmed bachelor’.
`Single’ or `straight & single’ works better, IMO. I used to be one.
Had to look that one up...
= = = =
Urban Dictionary: incel
aka “involuntarily celibate”, a person (usually male) who has a horrible personality and treats women like sexual objects and thinks his lack of a sex life comes from being “ugly” when its really just his blatant sexism and terrible attitude. incels have little to no self awareness; even when they see other “ugly” men with girlfriends, they ...
“Might be careful with the word `bachelor.”
Far be it from me to try recapping every thread extolling the virtues of non-European women, but find one and youll find the spite of the rejected women in no uncertain terms.
If you look at the background stories, it seems like most rampage killers are socially isolated men whose mental illness fixes the blame for their rage on the victims
Some women, some others ( Sandy Hook killer Lanza targeted children and female teachers, Cruz targeted classmates he felt disrespected him,,as did the Columbine killers, etc etc) .. the Isla del Vista killer was a classic “ incel” with rage against women because he felt rejected. Vester Lee Flanagan targeted a Roanoke VA newsteam because of delusional rejection rage ... many more examples
The Cap Gazette killer had stalked and been rejected by a near randomly chosen female classmate. The Capital deepened his anger because a reporter made the story public based on court hearings
Some victims they know ( family, co workers, classmatesc) some they never laid eyes on but targeted because of some circumstance related to their delusional grudge - Gabby Giffords shooter Jared Lee Loughner resented women in politics.
I believe that Islam does foster this rage against women among those with predisposition - isolation, prohibition against normal relationships, inflated feeling of male superiority, “ permissions” to kill women given in name of religion and personal honor
Ft Hood killer Hassan specifically targeted women
It is perfectly reasonable to criticize feminist women, or liberal women, or Millennial women, or some other narrowly defined category of women. But impugning American women makes you a nutcase. Seek help.
Thanks for the correction. I did not know that. I am now officially S & S! :-)
Yes, but that form of commerce is illegal in nearly the entire country due to religious nannyism and the justified fear of human trafficking.
LGBT ruin everything! j/k
Still not an argument....
Isn’t it schadenfreudic that the Fort Hood killer Hassan was brought down, made paraplegic, and sent to Leavenworth because he was shot by a wounded woman?
Hassan can reflect on that every time he’s forcibly shaved.
Careful with your wording, FRiend, because in the old days men who called themselves “confirmed bachelors” were really just fags.
Not that I think you are a fag. No offense intended.
Our culture is a sick and vapid wasteland of shallowness and narcissism, and women are half of society, so yeah.
Women are partly to blame.
