So…chilling words from mass murderer, 22 year old, Elliott Rodger…words like “war on women” “I will punish all females for the crime of depriving me sex.” ” I will attack the very girls who represent everything I hate in the female gender.” “I cannot kill every single female on earth, but I can deliver a devastating blow…” “..sorority is full of hot, beautiful, blond girls…I will sneak into their house…and kill every single one of them..” NOW if you think the BRUTALITY shown to women, and teenage girls, to “hot, beautiful, blond girls” in media, film, and television had nothing to do with this–you had better think again.
Of course without the NRA, the ridiculous and stupid belief that guns protect us rather than hurt us, the fact that this kid, and others like him can legally buy 3 guns in a two month period–made this massacre real, as opposed to imagined in his deranged mind.
But his hate, his imagining of this act, his clear, detailed visualization of each and every act of brutality came from images he has seen like those he imagined, images we see every day in the media, on television and in film.
Of course there is a connection to what a fractured mind is fed on a daily basis and his actions. Of course there is a connection between media and “hot, beautiful, blond girls” the kind of girls who are offered up as victims every single night on television. Of course there is a connection between his favorite show GAME OF THRONES, and the brutality it shows toward women, and the brutality he showed.
Our children are dying so people can make a buck. And we are allowing it every single time we pay for a movie, or support a television show, or buy a product that degrades, demeans, tortures, kills, rapes, abducts, brutalizes women and children.
