Elliot Rodger, Isla Vista Gunman, Wrote he had "Fascist" Views, Considered Himself "A God"

In his lengthy and demented manifesto, Elliot Rodger, the alleged Isla Vista gunman, wrote that his political leanings were fascistic and that he wanted desperately to be considered "a god" to those he intended to kill.

Though much of his ramblings stay away from officially declaring a political affiliation, in one passage Rodger specifically talks about political discussions with one of his "friends," Addison Altendorf.

According to the manifesto, Rodger frequently talked to Addison, who shared many beliefs with him. In one passage, Rodger comments (emphasis mine):
I talked to Addison about my old political views, debating with him about what an ideal world would look like. I found out that he had some fascist views of his own, and it was nice to have a discussion with someone about things that would make most normal people run a mile.

As the paragraph indicates, Rodger himself had fascistic ideas and was pleasantly surprised when he found someone with similar ideas of their own.

Rodger also was fascinated with being "a god" to those he planned to murder. In passage after passage, he repeatedly uses the same terminology when talking about killing innocents:

"They treated me like an insignificant little mouse, but on the Day of Retribution, I would be a God to them."

"I briefly fantasized about being a god as I looked down upon them all. I imagined having the power to destroy everything below with destructive, supernatural powers."

"Women are like a plague that must be quarantined... I am like a god, and my purpose is to exact ultimate Retribution on all of the impurities I see in the world."

"I will be a god, and they will all be animals that I can slaughter."

"I will be a god, punishing women and all of humanity for their depravity."

"Once they see all of their friend’s heads roll onto the street, everyone will fear me as the powerful god I am."

"I am the closest thing there is to a living god."

"On the Day of Retribution, I will truly be a powerful god, punishing everyone I deem to be impure and depraved."

And finally: "I am a god."


  1. So..... He was basically a Fascist/leftist/progressive/tyrant/Stalinist/Maoist, please excuse the redundancy as I should be able to wrap it up with one label; he was a Democrat, just like most of the other mass killers we've seen in recent years.

  2. […] from the crazy ramblings of the California shooter Elliot Rodger, including that he saw himself a fascist. He also believed that women were inferior to him and held disgusting sexist views. He also […]

  3. I know nothing about this dweeb, but I'd bet dollars to doughnut holes he had an absentee father and a domineering Liberal mother.

  4. He was a very lonely mixed up kid, who desperately wanted friends, who desperately wanted to be popular, who desperately wanted to have a girlfriend. Don't rely upon what others say. Read his story for yourself. 'My Twisted World - The Story of Elliot Rodger' By Elliot Rodger.

  5. Make that a doting mother.

  6. Egotistic narcissism was his poison. Fueled with racist undertones. Read his manifesto.

    On pages 85- he says

    "The sight of them enraged me to no end, especially because it was a dark-skinned Mexican guy dating a hot blonde white girl. I regarded it as an insult to my dignity. How could an inferior Mexican guy be able to date a white blonde girl, while I was still suffering as a lonely virgin? I was ashamed to be in such an inferior position in front my father. When I saw the two of them kissing, I could barely contain my rage. I stood up in anger, and I was about to walk up to them and pour my glass of soda all over their heads. I probably would have, if father wasn’t there. I was seething with envious rage, and my father was there to watch it all."

    "How could an inferior, ugly black boy be able to get a white girl and not me? I am beautiful, and I am half white myself. I am descended from British aristocracy. He is descended from slaves. I deserve it more. I tried not to believe his foul words, but they were already said, and it was hard to erase from my mind. If this is actually true, if this ugly black filth was able to have sex with a blonde white girl at the age of thirteen while I’ve had to suffer virginity all my life, then this just proves how ridiculous the female gender is. They would give themselves to this filthy scum, but they reject ME?"

    "Their names were Ryan and Angel, and to my dismay they were of Hispanic race. In addition, the two of them were already friends with each other, which meant that they could possibly gang up against me if any conflicts were to arise. They also seemed like rowdy, low-class types. I particularly hated Angel because of his ugly pig-face. How could such an ugly animal have had sexual experiences with girls, and yet I haven’t? What was wrong with this world? I got so angry that I went to my room and
    punched the wall. They heard me and started laughing"

  7. He was mentally disturbed individual, severely so, and if someone isn't normal you can't judge him or her by normal standards. I wouldn't wish his tortured mental state -- or his life -- on anybody.
