There’s only one thing more offensive than Elliot Rodger and his awful, childish manifesto that he recorded before murdering innocent people- and that thing is us using the recorded manifesto for entertainment purposes on this week’s episode. Before the hate mail starts rolling in, just remember that the news vultures are doing the same thing, we’re just honest about it and not presenting Elliot Rodger as some troubled kid worthy of being studied for serious news purposes. Elliot Rodger is a spoiled, entitled brat that deserves to be mocked for his childish manifesto. We are not glorifying his actions, or giving attention to something that we shouldn’t- we are laughing at Elliot Rodger for being such a tool that he will be forever remembered as a whiny little emo cunt who didn’t get any so-called “revenge” on anyone. If any copycat people listen to this episode, they might realize just how foolish they’ll seem, because we here at The Devil’s Advocates podcast are the epitome of guys who can’t get laid. The fact that we do not relate to his plight and instead view him as a pathetic little boob should send a message to other little monsters that even those who understand their frustration do not actually empathize or agree with their childish notion. Now if you still want to send us hate mail, by all means go ahead. It will be promptly ignored.
Josh shares a story of a little accident he had, and then we discuss the video of a little accident two parents had- the girl with Treacher Collins disease. The quick explanation is that she has no face, but the news did a thinly veiled “feel good” segment on her to pontificate about looking at inner beauty instead… but we notice the news story didn’t show much inner beauty, just a lot of outer ugly. To us, that means it’s open season- and while we will certainly be burning in hell for this segment, it’s less offensive than the fake news angle of a happy ending story just for the sake of getting the circus freak show ratings. The poor family doesn’t even see they’re being taken advantage of by the scumbag news. They’re not helping spread a message of inner beauty, they’re going for the ratings grab with the craziest, freakiest story they can get. Well, there’s only one ringmaster in this circus freak show, and that’s us. Step aside and see how it’s done.
