Pittsburgh murders

Another one of those weird, sick slaughters with no apparent motive:

A shooting at an LA Fitness gym outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, killed at least five people and wounded several others, a local official told CNN.  […]

Witnesses told WTAE that a man unrecognized by the gym’s staff shot people in a Latin dance class.

A witness identified as Nicole told WTAE that about 30 women were in the class when “a middle-aged white male walked into the class. He had a big gym bag.”

“He looked out of place in a class full of women,” according to the witness, who told WTAE the man put down the bag, turned off the lights and opened fire.

Something rotten is happening to that country.

UPDATE: The killer, now identified as George Sodini, kept “a hate-filled online diary” that chronicled his madness.  He had apparently been planning this event for some time.  From last year:

November 5, 2008:
Planned to do this in the summer but figure to stick around to see the election outcome. This particular one got so much attention and I was just curious. Not like I give a flying fcuk who won, since this exit plan was already planned. Good luck to Obama! He will be successful. The liberal media LOVES him. Amerika has chosen The Black Man. Good! In light of this I got ideas outside of Obama’s plans for the economy and such. Here it is: Every black man should get a young white girl hoe to hone up on. Kinda a reverse indentured servitude thing. Long ago, many a older white male landowner had a young Negro wench girl for his desires. Bout’ time tables are turned on that shit. Besides, dem young white hoez dig da bruthrs! LOL. More so than they dig the white dudes! Every daddy know when he sends his little girl to college, she be bangin a bruthr real good. I saw it. “Not my little girl”, daddy says! (Yeah right!!) Black dudes have thier choice of best white hoez. You do the math, there are enough young white so all the brothers can each have one for 3 or 6 months or so.

The angry angry left strikes again.

    Whoa, that guy was really disturbed.

    Yeah, one of those “It’s the feminist’s fault that women can sense I’m a homicidal creep with tons of scary emotional baggage and stay away from me like the plague” guys. At least he had the good sense to put a bullet in his own head.

    What a tragedy.

    Having spent my college years in Pittsburgh, I am deeply saddened that this happened, especially now that I hear that the perp was yet another racist wingnut.

    Incidentally, this isn’t the first time Pittsburgh has been in the news because some racist wingnut felt the need to use his penis extension “before Obama takes it away.” Remember that bastard who shot up three cops shortly after Obama won?

    motive?

    Make those hoes pay for all of the world’s hoes not wanting him.

    And Harper & Co. change the wording in our DFAIT policies, removing reference to stopping gender based violence.

    Sometimes it feels like one step forward, two steps back, this fight to eliminate gender based hate.

    an aside – Maybe we should demand to know where the right wing outrage is over these murders? No need to see if any wingnuts actually posted on this, just condemn them for their apathy, maybe link it to anti-choice or something. That’s how it’s done, right?

    Actually, that comment about righties does connect to my anger over this. Their preoccupation with bible trivia and incorporating it into our laws all the while distorting it to fit their own small minded, atavistic urges not only allows this slaughter of women, but encourages it.

    That fucking two part work of fiction the wingers use to piece together their bullshit mores repeatedly refers to women as whores. Or as the murdering sicko Sodini says: hoes.

    Yeah, those bastards want to fuck a lot of women, as Sodini shows us through his journal, but despise them for being desirable and label them as sinners deserving severe punishment.

    Jesus fucking christ, will this never end?

    900 ft J, you have been missed. As always you hit the nail right on the head.

  6. 6 J. A. Baker Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 8:53 am

    Looks like they’ve taken down his website. All I got when I went there was this:

    Service Unavailable

    Guess they didn’t want any copycats.

  7. 7 Frank Frink Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 6:30 pm

    Interesting. Another friend had this to post today – content from Sodini’s web site, post prefaced with a disclaimer that she believes it, at first glance, to be a fake. Read through the comment thread, however, and I certainly think it was real.

    To simplify this asshole’s motivations somewhat, he misogynisically massacred these women because they did not conform to the socially conservative expectations of women.

  9. 9 JJ Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    Chet – “Really disturbed” is putting it mildly. This guy was batshit.

  10. 10 JJ Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    Dr.Prole – This guy appears to have had a cornucopia of psych disorders — paranoia, narcissism & many more. I’m not surprised he had problems with women — by the sound of it, anyone he dated would have sensed right away that there was something off about this guy. Strikes me as the type who, on your first date, would ask why you took so long in the washroom… Been there! Red flag! Screeching alarm bells!

  11. 11 JJ Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    JAB – Very sad indeed. It didn’t surprise me to find out he had problems with women — when I heard about it I immediately thought it had to be some Marc Lepine misogynist type — but I didn’t think “racism” until I read his diary. Wow. Just an all-around hater sicko.

  12. 12 JJ Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 11:01 pm

    900ft –

    That’s only how it’s done when you’re a right wing asshole looking to Blame the Feminazis for (insert issue here) — mouth off first, check later (or better yet don’t check at all).

    Besides, after all the bullshit about honour killings, I figured out that it doesn’t matter to the right whether one does or doesn’t write about an issue — unless your opinion agrees with theirs, it doesn’t count as having said anything at all. Free speech!!!

    Jesus fucking christ, will this never end?

    Not as long as there are women, as well as men, who willingly buy into and perpetuate it.

  13. 13 JJ Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 11:05 pm

    JAB – I have screenshots, but it’s still available in google cache. Probably not for long, though. Go here and type 20090804 in “date of death” and click, and you can still access it

  14. 14 JJ Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    FF – Its real. The whois info speaks for itself.

    ETA – Whois

  15. 15 JJ Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 11:16 pm

    Rob F – Although this guy appears to have been a right wing racist as well as a misogynist, I don’t think he was a social conservative. His views on religion seem ambivalent, at least until he got closer to then end. I’d categorize this guy as vaguely similar to the Holocaust Museum shooter, with women and blacks as the objects of hate rather than Jews.

  16. 16 Frank Frink Thursday, August 6, 2009 at 12:21 am

    Thanks, JJ. The Whois info was listed in that thread which I read this morning. So yeah as I said, it’s real.

  17. 17 JJ Thursday, August 6, 2009 at 1:00 pm

    FF – No doubt. It remains to be seen what this guy’s political ideology was, if any, but apparently he was a random poster at militia message boards back in the mid-90s so it appears he was right-leaning. For some reason the media isn’t looking at it from that angle, though, so who knows. In any case, a deranged nutbar of the highest order.

    They’re out there.


Wait. What?
