When Elliot Rodger knocked on the door of the UCSB Alpha Phi sorority house on May 23 and then proceeded to open fire on passersby, his disturbing manifesto revealed that his original plan was to set the house on fire.
Elliot Rodger, 22, murdered six people and injured 13 others on May 23 when he opened fire on the University of California, Santa Barbara campus. Before the murder, Elliot wrote a disturbing 140-page manifesto which detailed his supposed reasons for the killings, as well as his various alternate plans. Read on, but beware that the content below is very disturbing.
Elliot Rodger: UCSB Killer’s Manifesto Revealed He Planned On Burning Down Sorority
“I will punish all females for the crime of depriving me of sex. They have starved me of sex for my entire youth, and gave that pleasure to other men. In doing so, they took many years of my life away,” he wrote. “I cannot kill every single female on earth, but I can deliver a devastating blow that will shake all of them to the core of their wicked hearts.
“I will attack the very girls who represent everything I hate in the female gender: The hottest sorority of UCSB.” He was referring to Alpha Phi, the door of which he would knock on for a few minutes on May 23 before murdering passersby after there was no answer.
Elliot Rodger Had Been Planning UCSB Massacre For A Long Time
His manifesto revealed that he had been planning the massacre for a long time — he had “stalk[ed] them many times,” he wrote, and his plan was to “sneak into their house at around 9:00 p.m. on the Day of Retribution, just before all of the partying starts, and slaughter every single one of them with my guns and knives. If I have time, I will set their whole house on fire. Then we shall see who the superior one really is!”
Obviously, Elliot was deeply ill. His perverse sense of entitlement regarding what he thought women owed him was not only undeserved, but truly insane.
Our thoughts are with the families of the victims affected by this horrible tragedy, and for the the Isla Vista community and students of UCSB who are shaken by Elliot Rodger’s horrific actions.
