Transcript of video allegedly from mass killer in Santa Barbara - Horrible

Video allegedly from mass killer in Santa Barbara: “If I can’t have you, girls, I’ll destroy you.” [TRIGGER WARNING] | we hunted the mammoth:
"Hi, Elliot Rodger here. Well… this is my last video. It all has to come to this.
 Tomorrow is the day of retribution. The day in which I will have my revenge against humanity. Against all of you.
 For the last 8 years of my life, ever since I’ve hit puberty, I’ve been forced to endure an existence of loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires. All because girls have never been attracted to me.
 Girls gave their affection, and sex, and love, to other men but never to me.
 I’m 22 years old and I’m still a virgin. I’ve never even kissed a girl.
 I’ve been through college for two and a half years, more than that actually, and I’m still a virgin.
 It has been very torturous.
 College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex, and fun, and pleasure. But in those years I’ve had to rot in loneliness.
 It’s not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me.
 I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it.
 It’s an injustice, a crime, because I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I’m the perfect guy, and yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men, instead of me, the supreme gentlemen.
 I will punish all of you for it. (laughs)
 On the day of retribution I am going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB… and I will slaughter every single spoiled, stuck-up, blonde slut I see inside there.
 All those girls that I’ve desired so much, they would’ve all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them while they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes.
 I will take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am in truth the superior one. The true alpha male. (laughs)
 Yes, after I’ve annihilated every single girl in the sorority house, I’ll take to the streets of Isla Vista, and slay every single person I see there.
 All those popular kids who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure while I’ve had to rot in loneliness for all these years, they’ve all looked down upon me every time I try to go out and join them. They’ve all treated me like a mouse.
 Well now, I will be a God compared to you. You will all be animals. You are animals, and I will slaughter you like animals. I will be a God, exacting my retribution, on all those who deserve it.
 And you do deserve it, just for the crime of living a better life than me.
 All you popular kids. You’ve never accepted me, and now you’ll all pay for it.
 And girls, all I’ve ever wanted was to love you, and to be loved by you. I’ve wanted a girlfriend, I’ve wanted sex, I’ve wanted love, affection, adoration, but you think I’m unworthy of it.
 That’s a crime that can never be forgiven.
 If I can’t have you, girls, I will destroy you. (laughs)
 You denied me a happy life, and in turn, I will deny all of you life. (laughs) It’s only fair.
 I hate all of you, humanity is a disgusting, wretched, depraved species. If I had it in my power, I would stop at nothing, to reduce every single one of you to mountains of skulls and rivers of blood, and rightfully so.
 You deserve to be annihilated. And I’ll give that to you.
 You never showed me any mercy, and so I will show you none. (laughs)
 You force me to suffer all my life, and now I’ll make you all suffer.
 I’ve waited a long time for this.
 I’ll give you exactly what you deserve."

The Case for Reparations - The Atlantic

The Case for Reparations - The Atlantic:
"Two hundred fifty years of slavery. Ninety years of Jim Crow. Sixty years of separate but equal. Thirty-five years of racist housing policy. Until we reckon with our compounding moral debts, America will never be whole."

The brilliant Ta-Nehisi Coates. He makes a powerful case.

The Case for Reparations: An Intellectual Autopsy - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic:
"But it all combined to make me feel that mainstream liberal discourse was getting it wrong. The relentless focus on explanations which are hard to quantify, while ignoring those which are not, the subsequent need to believe that America triumphs in the end, led me to believe that we were hiding something, that there was something about ourselves which were loath to say out in public. Perhaps the answer was somewhere else, out there on the ostensibly radical fringes, something dismissed by people who should know better. People like me. "

Georgia’s War On The Poor

Georgia’s War On The Poor
 The second bill, HB 943, restricts state and local agencies and their employees from advocating for Medicaid expansion, bans the creation of a state health insurance exchange, and prohibits the University of Georgia from continuing its navigator program once its original federal grant expires in August. 

Impressive stuff. Guess I will strike Savannah off my retirement list
