The monster who declared that “homosexual impulses” drove 22-year-old Elliot Rodger to allegedly gun down and murder six UCSB students on Friday night has issued a non-pology for her dangerous diagnosis, claiming that she was “misunderstood” whilst talking aloud.
Hack psychologist Dr. Robi Ludwig delivered her assumption to millions of Fox News viewers on Saturday night, informing host Judge Jeanine Pirro that she believed Rodger’s motives could have been rooted in gay frustration. She based her hypothesis on the 141-page manifesto and several YouTube videos Rodger left behind, detailing a college career fraught with rejection and his desire for retribution.
In a video uploaded to YouTube just six hours before his shooting rampage, Rodger talked about women who passed him up for “stupid and obnoxious guys.” He blamed them for his going through college without ever having had sex, and threatened to retaliate with fatal force.
“All you girls who rejected me and looked down upon me and treated me like scum, while you gave yourself to other men,” he said. “And all of you men for living a better life than me. All of you sexually active men. I hate you.”
Though he does not ever allude to being gay, Dr. Ludwig believes he could be “angry at the men for not choosing him”:
“When I was first listening to him, I was like, ‘Oh, he’s angry with women for rejecting him,’” Ludwig recalled. “And then I started to have a different idea: Is this somebody who is trying to fight against his homosexual impulses?’”
“Was he angry with women because they were taking away men from him?” she continued. “But this is a kid who couldn’t connect, and felt enraged, and wanted to obliterate anyone that made him feel like a nothing.”
Following a rightful backlash on her social media channels, Ludwig attempted to justify her comments on Facebook yesterday morning. She employs the “I was just doing my job” defense:
I was misunderstood on @FoxNews this weekend, when I was asked to hypothesize several factors which could have triggered #ElliotRoger’s spree killing. I in NO way meant to indicate being a homosexual or having homosexual impulses is a cause for spree killing. My job on @judgejeanine was to asses several possible triggers for #ElliotRoger and his behavior #peace #forequalrights However, I apologize to all those who felt offended. That was never my intention.
Four days after the shooting spree, Dr. Ludwig is still the only professional to make the connection between “gay” and “murderous tendencies.” The New Civil Rights Movement notes that she may have violated the rules of the American Psychological Association, which prohibits members from diagnosing patients they have not personally examined.
