Men’s rights fanatics defend Iowa mall shooter fired for sexual harassment: It’s ‘hard to blame him’

Published

Several members of the men’s rights movement have offered qualified support for a former Iowa mall security guard who shot and killed a 20-year-old woman Friday night after he was reportedly fired because the woman complained that he was sexually harassing her.

David Futrelle reported that commenters at a “red pillers” forum expressed sympathy for open carry advocate Alex Kozak, who they believe was unfairly treated by a system that takes sexual harassment complaints too seriously.

The so-called “red pillers” believe that society favors women over men, disenfranchising them and leaving them subject to laws and societal rules they feel are unjust to their gender.

According to Futrelle, members of the forum jumped to the defense of Kozak once they heard that sexual harassment accusations had been leveled against the married former mall cop, presumably leading to his shooting Andrea Farrington three times in the back with a 9mm handgun.

“Like rape, does the term sexual harassment pretty much no longer have any real meaning? IE it’s safe to assume there’s no chance this guy actually touched her or said anything overtly lewd?” wrote a commenter named Ziltoid, before adding, “As somebody who’s been job hunting for some time now picturing being fired, in this job market, over some twit finding you ‘creepy’… Sad to say I’m finding it hard to blame him.”

While some found Ziltoid’s comments “creepy,” others joined in by attacking the young woman who was shot, with one writing, “As far as I’m concerned, his being guilty of not giving these bitches the tingles is what caused him to get fired, and in turn, murder this chick.”

Another commenter, Samseau, suggested that Kozak was guilty of something as inoffensive as telling Farrington she was “beautiful” before blaming Kozak’s upbringing and society.

“He wasn’t being rude to anyone on his job. He wasn’t trying to be a pick-up artist on the job and shitting where he eats. His ‘prior-complaints leading up to his firing’ are almost certainly trumped-up charges. His crime? Being a beta male raised without a father and a domineering mother.”

Red_Pillage took up the “blaming society” flag and ran with it, comparing Kozak to Elliott Rodgers, who went on a murderous rampage in Santa Barbara in 2014 over his frustrations with his inability to hookup with women for sex.

“Society is churning out weak men with no masculine guidance by the truckload. Add to that the social ramifications of unrestrained and optimized hypergamy, what you get is men with nowhere to turn. That masculine energy will express itself in destructive ways if it is not channeled properly,” he wrote. ” There’s gonna be a lot more Elliot Rodger’s coming down the pike. Now in this case the guy apparently wasn’t an incel, but I would be willing to bet that his murderous rage came from (at least in part) sexual frustration coupled with losing his job.”

Kozak is currently being held on $10 million bail for the murder of Farrington.

Trump spent 45 minutes talking with cast of right-wing play dramatizing ‘Deep State’ conspiracy theories: report

Published

The coronavirus emergency has given President Donald Trump one of the most daunting tests of his administration, with less than a year to go before he stands for re-election.

And yet in the midst of all the chaos, one thing the president found time to do on Thursday was meet with the cast of a bizarre right-wing play dramatizing the supposed "deep state" plot at the FBI to frame Trump in the Russia investigation.

According to The Daily Beast, Trump spent 45 minutes talking with the people behind "FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers," which focuses on the affair between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The leading roles of Strzok and Page were played by Dean Cain, the former Superman actor, and Kristy Swanson, who played the starring role in the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.

All US Navy ships in the Pacific near countries with coronavirus ordered to self-quarantine for 14 days

CNN National Security reporter Ryan Browne tweeted Thursday that the U.S. Navy has ordered all of its vessels in the Pacific that have been near countries with COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, "to remain at sea for at least 14 days before pulling into another port in order to monitor sailors for any symptoms of the virus."

Health experts have said that the two-week period should give enough time for infected people to become aware that they are sick.

The highly-contagious disease has spread very quickly in South Korea and California after public exposure. The first person verified with "community-spread" transmission was identified just outside of Sacramento, California.

‘Most wicked to ever represent Cleveland’: Jim Jordan ripped by hometown paper for covering up sex scandal

Published

on

President Trump likes to call his enemies 'sleaze bags" and Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan a "warrior," but according to Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Brent Larkin, Trump has it backward.

While Jordan may not seem like the worse politician to ever come out of Ohio, the "crimes" he's committed "don't involve felonies," according to Larkin. "They are crimes against America, crimes involving total disregard for the principles of democracy, trampling the truth on behalf of a corrupt president who revels in his inhumanity."

Watching Jordan question witnesses during the House impeachment inquiry particularly incensed Larkin, who writes that it was like watching a man who "spent his childhood gleefully ripping wings off flies."
