Elliot Rodger on YouTube: 'I Will Slaughter ... All Those Girls I Desired So Much'

Lamenting his virginity and proclaiming himself the "true alpha male," the suspected spree killer of UC Santa Barbara posted his final video blog on Friday.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — "Girls, all I’ve ever wanted was to love you and to be loved by you," says Elliot Rodger in his final YouTube video post before vowing to go on a killing spree. "I've wanted a girlfriend. I’ve wanted sex. I’ve wanted love, affection, adoration. You think I’m unworthy of it. 

"That’s a crime that can never be forgiven." 

Police suspect Rodger, 22, as the gunman who went on a shooting spree in the Isla Vista neighborhood Friday night near the UC Santa Barbara campus, trading gunfire with police as he took aim at the young people who fueled his emotional torment and feelings of inadequacy.

In the video, posted by Rodger on Friday, he calmly sat in the driver's seat of a car and detailed plans to "slaughter ... all those girls I desired so much ... the hottest sorority girls" at UCSB.

"I'll take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there. All those popular kids who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure while I've had to rot in loneliness for all those years."

"I'll be a god exacting my retribution on all those who deserve it ... Just for the crime of living a better life than me."

Saturday morning, YouTube removed the video from the web. City News Service in Los Angeles reports that his mother has called police in the past when she found a disturbing video on her son's YouTube account.

This is the strangest story ever: A gay punk from a liberal indoctrination center, in a liberal town, with $300 sunglasses and a $40,000 new luxury car, claims to be upset that sluts won't sleep with him (which should deem them NOT sluts), and stabs several people, and then shoots several more because he doesn't have enough in life. Then, a victim's liberal father hysterically screams that, even though he contributed to the liberal entitlement mentality that led to this mass murder, which mirrors all mass murders in recent years in that they have all been perpetrated by liberals, that it is the fault of the NRA, even though no NRA member has ever been involved in mass murder. And in fact, the NRA would have supported someone killing the little parasite as soon as anyone was threatened. THEN, even though people died by stabbings and shootings, the media reports the story as though it was only a gun crime. You couldn't make this stuff up! It's completely crazy, and it's called LIBERALISM.

This young man wanted sex, desired sex, and felt entitled to have sex with those he desired. He wasn't really wanting to be held and all that other stuff. He just wanted dirty sex. He was a virgin with girls. He did not say he was a total virgin. I believe he was having issues about his sexuality also. He never said it, however his room mates he killed who had shed light on that subject. His mother sure spoiled the living daylights out of this young man. Pumped his ego to the highest limits also. Gave him the most expensive toys to help him lure in women and all he used these toys for were self destruction. This young man had no idea what being humble ever was.

All he had to do was offer the women $$$$. No trick to it.

What a lunatic!! A senseless crime against young people going to school. I was at a music festival north of Santa Barbara & Iration knew one of the victims & was talking about it, dedicated a song. This was the 1st I heard about it. People were saying the band may be late because of a shooting. Horrible, senseless, psychotic, & everyone knew the kid was crazy & had no outlet in which to get this guy off the streets. There needs to be a way to report such dangerous people & have something happen!
