Self-Proclaimed 'Incel' Planned To Kill Sorority Girls At An Ohio University, Feds Say

Washington Post, July 22, 2021.

Weeks after Tres Genco returned to Ohio after being kicked out of Army basic training last January, federal investigators say he penned a letter with a chilling warning. “If you’re reading this, I’ve done something horrible,” Genco, now 21, wrote in the document entitled “isolated,” according to court documents. “Somehow you’ve come across the writings of the deluded and homicidal.”

He signed the letter, “Your hopeful friend and murderer.”

Four days later, Genco searched online for “planning a shooting crime,” prosecutors said, and drove to an unnamed university in Ohio to scope out the campus, where he was allegedly planning to shoot students in sororities. His goal, investigators say, was to kill as many as 3,000 people. Law enforcement arrested Genco at his home in Hillsboro, Ohio, on Wednesday and charged him with attempting to conduct a mass shooting of women — a hate crime — and illegally possessing a machine gun. Genco’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment late Wednesday.

Genco self-identified as an “incel” or “involuntary celibate,” an online movement made up of predominantly White men who “seek to commit violence in support of their belief that women unjustly deny them sexual or romantic attention to which they believe they are entitled,” prosecutors said.

He always hated women. Then he decided to kill them.

The group gained national attention in May 2014 when 22-year-old Elliot Rodger used guns, a knife and his car to kill six people and injure 13 others in the Isla Vista neighborhood near Santa Barbara, Calif. Two of the victims had been walking by a sorority house at the University of California at Santa Barbara when he opened fire. Rodger fatally shot himself after the attack. Rodger’s actions inspired similar attacks from other self-proclaimed incels...

1. I only vaguely recall -- "incel" or "involuntary celibate," an online movement-----

They seem to be dangerous crybabies

2. White privilege writ large.

These deluded white boys who think they're entitled to a woman's body...... just because they're deluded white boys.

If the entirety of women on the planet don't want to have sex with you, did you ever stop to think that YOU MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM and not the women?

The epitome of white privilege, and misogynistic delusion.
