New Counter Cultured Column: UCSB Killer Elliot Rodger is to Blame for Massacre

I’ve penned a new column at Counter Cultured. Below is an excerpt:

I want to start this article by first extending my thoughts and prayers to the victims of the Isla Vista massacre. I spent summer 2010 in downtown Santa Barbara and will always cherish the time I spent living there. No town should be subjected to this kind of horror. Please join me in offering your condolences to those in the UC-Santa Barbara area.

Following the massacre, unsurprisingly, many leftists have made calls to ban guns and to dismantle gun groups. Additionally, radical feminists gave birth to the viral yet misleading #YesAllWomen hashtag to blame the massacre on men.

22-year-old Elliot Rodger, a Santa Barbara City College student and son of Hollywood director Peter Rodger, went on a killing spree May 23 with knives and guns that left six coeds dead and countless others injured. He ultimately died following a confrontation with Santa Barbara police.

Elliot Rodger was a deeply disturbed guy. From his bizarre YouTube videos to his 140-page manifesto, Rodger appeared to be self-absorbed, antagonistic towards others, and troubled from early on.

I’ll be appearing on NRANews’ Cam and Company Show today at 2:40pm ET to discuss the article!
