The incels have evidently raised their standards for mass shooters. On Tuesday, two high school students opened fire in the STEM School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, wounding eight other students and killing another. On Incels.co, the largest incel hangout outside of Reddit’s Braincels, the regulars reacted with a collective “meh.”
“Is it really that hard to get kills?” another wondered.
Still another lamented that the shooters hadn’t gone after the right targets.
When is one of these guys going to show up to a slut walk to congratulate women and help them celebrate female empowERment. They keep missing the chance to make a huge diffERence in women’s lives
The inappropriately capitalized “ERs” are a reference to mass killer Elliot Rodger, whom incels still regard as a martyr for their cause, a righteous incel executioner of “normies” and “foids” (females).
Another commenter fantasized about taking out some “significant” target like “the corporate offices of Buzzfeed or Visa or something.”
Still, there were a couple of incels on the site who thought the older of the two shooters, 18-year-old Devon Erickson, could turn out to be, in the words of one of them, “a fellow incel who went ER.”
But not many on Incels,co would bite. Some dismissed Erickson as a “prettyboy, normie-tier,” or even “a high tier normalfag or a chadlite.” Others, noting his decidedly non-macho appearance, dismissed him as “a fucking f*ggot” with “fucking dyed pink & purple hair” and “a literal f*ggot liberal soyboy.”
Erickson’s accomplice was described by police as a “female juvenile,” which struck the Incels.co regulars as inherently hilarious. “Well now we know why it failed so badly LOL !” wrote one commenter. “She got mad she couldn’t get a chad probably,” a second joked.
Still another added:
foids can’t do anything right.she didn’t have that high T rage that other shooters have tbh
After hearing reports that Erickson’s accomplice was not actually a “foid” but rather “a transgender male who was in the midst of transitioning from female to male,” one commenter mocked him as
a tr*nny, this has to be one of the biggest fails of a school shooting ever tbh
Another laughed that “this is kind of like an lgbtq+ version of columbine kek.”
The only person involved in the incident that the Incels.co regulars regarded with more contempt than the shooters themselves was 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo, reportedly shot dead while attempting to wrestle the gun away from one of the shooters. As one commenter wrote:
this fat f*ggot lunged at the shooter instead of running for his life, he was either blackpilled and wanted to die or a cuck
Most of the other commenters agreed that Castillo was the latter. “[H]is face screams cuck,” wrote one.
Another mocked anyone willing to risk their life to protect others.
JFL if you’re not using a foids body as a human shield in 2019. Fuck putting your life on the line for cucks and foids … throw them into the line of fire.
Even when incels aren’t cheering on murderers they somehow still manage to have the least humane responses to killings humanly possible.
