Before I go into who and what this article is about, I must first define what PUA is. It stands for “Pick Up Artists,” ran by a group of misogynistic men who train social misfits on how to pick up chicks. There’s a whole group of blogs, forums and books marketed to this community, whose sole purpose is to learn how to say and do just about anything to get as much pussy as possible.
MGTOW stands for “Men Going Their Own Way,” which at first sounds like a modern version of the ‘He-Man Woman’s Haters Crew.” This group of men have a whole host of complaints against feminists, the family court system and the decline of the idea that men are the superior gender. This is a pretty angry lot.
So why am I focusing on these groups and their misogynistic corner of the internet? Because in at least two of the mass shootings we’ve read about, the young males fit a similar profile: feelings that they don’t fit in, anger because they can’t find hot chicks to boink. Both were tied to PUA and/or MGTOW communities.
Take the most recent example from Salon
After the shooting, a warning went on 4chan that “This is only the beginning. The Beta Rebellion has begun. Soon, more of our brothers will take up arms to become martyrs in this revolution. On October fifth, at 1pm Central time, a fellow robot will take up arms at a university near Philadelphia. His cries will be heard, his victims will cover in fear, and the strength of the Union will decay a little more.” Another threat on 4chan went out to warn college students in northwestern Delaware to stay away from school — which garnered a helpful suggestion from another user that “There will be hundreds of people on The Green at UD at 10 a.m.” Federal agents said they tracked the original threat to a teenager in Ohio they said “had no real intent or capability.” There have been more scares. In Clearwater, Florida.InBosque county, Texas. And on Wednesday, the Highland High School in Pocatello, Idaho was placed on controlled access after an anonymous tip regarding alleged threats posted on Facebook and Twitter.
In screenshots obtained by KIDK, the student appears to be in an exchange with a friend trying to talk him down, he vows, “I will bring a gun to school Friday and kill all the girls.” He’s quite specific: “I will. I’m serious. Will do it 9:30 Friday during first hour… I have a 12 gauge shotgun and a 9mm pistol I will bring and start killing everyone.” He then details his planned route, promising to kill himself afterward. The person he’s communicating with asks, “Over freaking nudes?” He replies, “Because no one will give any to me.”
A fellow student told KVPI that “Some kid who was having attention problems with specifically the cheerleaders, didn’t get nudes. He was asking for some inappropriate things.”On Wednesday, the boy was charged with one count of threatening violence at a school and another count of telephone harassment. So, okay, just another day, just another angry young male outraged that females aren’t providing him what he feels entitled to. Another angry young male who apparently sincerely has access to a means of murdering large numbers of them at a time.
So what is the “Beta Rebellion,” you ask? Social misfits rising up to do violence against “normies” because they’re sexually frustrated and feel rejected by the women they feel entitled to exploit.
Anyone see the symbolism of using a frog in a mask toting a gun? Guess this group of frogs are angry the beautiful princess won’t kiss them so they’ve decided to just kill them all. Sounds reasonable. /sarcasm
I guess the good news is that both local and federal law enforcement are going to take these women-hating communities a lot more seriously and bring all these basement-dwelling trolls into the light.
