More info about Aaron Ybarra

From ibtimes:

But one friend who said he was close to Ybarra was shocked that Ybarra was named as the suspect in the SPU shooting. He said Ybarra never talked about guns and was more interested in fishing.

“I’m really good at deciphering if someone’s got bad news or in trouble. I’m blown away by this,’’ friend Zack McKinley told the Seattle Times. “He called me yesterday and asked if I wanted to go fishing.”

This is looking very much like beta-male rage, because there is no evidence of schizophrenia, and no evidence of a history of violence or thugishness, and he doesn’t seem to have a girlfriend.

Ybarra is a prole beta and not a bobo beta. He appears to have just average IQ, is interested in prole hobbies like fishing, has a prole job and is attending community college. The DUI arrest is also prole.

He doesn’t suffer from the extreme social anxiety of Elliot Rodgers, but he may still have anxieties about asking girls on dates, and he doesn’t really have anything great going for him that would make him especially desirable for women (career as a janitor, doesn’t have huge muscles, etc.). The Vietnamese girl liked him as a friend, but did she want to have sex with him?

  2. The Media paints this guy as more of a right-wing extremist than a guy with incelness.

    I can see why Mexicans or Hispanics go right-wing. As you once said, they have a lot in common with working class proles.

    He could have been angered by liberalism and multiculturalism, just by reading Stormfront and even blogs such as yours.

    I personally know some hard working Mexicans who HATE HATE HATE blacks, liberals and other Hispanics such as Puerto Ricans because they come off as lazy and entitled, not to mention, overly obnoxious with their welfare mentality.

    • “The Media paints this guy as more of a right-wing extremist than a guy with incelness.”

      That’s what the liberal media wants to believe. These crimes have to be caused by something liberals hate, like misogyny, guns, right-wing political beliefs, etc.

      • Absolutely. The default story is “right-wing extremist, Tea Partier” before anything is even known. That’s just the go-to narrative. If it gets unraveled latter, well heck the seed was planted. People mostly remember what they were first told about stories like this because they are less likely to read the follow-ups. So they hear “another right-wing gun nut white male killer” and if later it turns out to be a Hispanic, transgendered PETA activist, well oops.

      • There are more white mass shooters because there are more whites. But mass shooters are disproportionately non white. There should be more conservative mass shooters because there are twice as many conservatives as liberals. But if you look at the numbers, there are actually more mass shooters who lean left. Leftists like to think of themselves as caring and compassionate. But there really is something angry and disgruntled about leftist psychology. My mental image of a leftist is someone screaming and shaking their fist.

    • I don’t think prole guys read blogs. None of those I know do. Fussell said that only 6 percent of Americans read even one book per year and that tended to be a romance or self-help book of some kind. This was before the internet. If proles in the past didn’t read much I don’t imagine they read much now. I haven’t seen much evidence that they do.

      Per the comment that DUI arrests are prole, is this really true? I realize Lion has a prosecutor background and therefore has considerable knowledge about something like this, but I keep reading that Bobos drink more on average than do proles.

      BTW — I wonder if the shooter would have sidelined the shooting if he knew he had a fishing companion the next day.

Nerds have higher frequencies of specific disorders than the artiste set. But the latter have their particular deficiencies too such as egomania. I forget whether I read it on GNXP or Audacious Epigone.

  4. OT. I read an interesting tidbit in Sailer’s new spot at Unz.com.

    Sailer’s mother was married before (hubby killed in Iwo Jima), and she not only continued to communicate with her late husband’s family, but continued to maintain influence over her former in-laws even after she married Sailer’s dad and Sailer was old enough to understand the situation.

    I do not understand such arrangement. Usually the new husband will try to block any dealings with the ex-in-laws but it appears Sailer’s father did not have the power to do so.

    I do think it has to do with status. If the second husband’s status is lower than the first husband, the sh is little more than a concubine to the wife whose loyalty still lies with the fh’s family.

      • Obviously the second husband would not be too happy to see his wife associating with her former in-laws. (Sailer said his mother continued to be close with the former in-laws till the end of century, which is 55 years since Iwo Jima! He is silent about how his father felt on this arrangement).

        Obviously if the second husband’s status is higher the wife will conveniently forget the fh’s family, like the new queen of Spain. But if that is not the case, the wife would rather associate with fh’s family which has a higher status and the lower-status sh has no power to stop it.

      • I don’t see why this is true at all. The first husband is dead, the wife has a family-like relationship with the first husband’s family, they may even treat the second husband like a son-in-law. I don’t see why this is a problem for anyone involved. Seems like a good thing to me.

      • Would the SH be happy to be treated like a son-in-law by these people who have nothing to do with him and represent a part of his wife’s past history which still occupies a huge chunk of her life?

        And in situations like this the wife would be less friendly with his own family since her priority is her former in-laws. He would feel resentment like what is his position to her.

        That’s when status comes to play, since if the sh has lower status than the fh sh would think associating with fh’s family would be good for his status, but if the sh’s status is higher he would have nothing to do with the lower-status fh’s family.

        Not only do I agree with you, but I would go so far as to question why on earth they would resent her remarrying. And, there’s an angle I haven’t seen anybody mention: what about the children (of the woman and the first husband)? Don’t you think those children might want to keep in contact with their dead father’s family? I sure do. My father died when I was in my early twenties; my mother is now finally considering the possibility of a new relationship (which I am fine with), and it would be obscene and unthinkable for any of us to somehow expect my mother not to keep in contact with her former in-laws (that is to say, my beloved uncles and aunts)!

    • Your approach to this is whack. Of course in those circumstances Sailer’s mom should continue to have dealings with her former in-laws. I’m sure Sailer’s dad thought that her continuing to have dealings with them confirmed to him that she was a quality woman and that he had made the right choice. If I died suddenly, I would hope my widow would continue to deal with my family and not just block that part of her life out when she met someone new and I am sure Sailer’s dad thought the same.

      Where something like this could be a problem if it were a divorce and the ex was still around and she was dealing with the family. In that case it is a different story.

      But in Sailer’s case his mother’s actions only show that he comes from some pretty damn solid stock.

Not only did they have her deceased husband in common but they also had her child (and their grandchild) in common. Should she cut them off from their only grandchild? Or cut little Steve off from his grandparents? I’ve heard of divorced women cutting off their ex husband’s parents from seeing their grandchildren. Unless there’s a reason to do so (drugs, abusive, etc) I think that’s nasty. Decent, sane, intelligent people should be able to get over it. Especially when the spouse is deceased and there’s a grandchild involved. Anyone who would cut off the grandparents in a situation like that ought to have their ass kicked.

        Hispanics don’t seem to have higher rates of mental illness than Asians or even Whites.

        Studies show Hispanics suffer higher rates of mental illness particularly depression and anxiety.

        Latinos are identified as a high-risk group for depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.
        Quality Health Services for Hispanics: The Cultural Competency Component. .National Alliance for
        Hispanic Health, 2001.

        Women and Latinos are more likely to experience a major depressive episode.
        Mental Health: A report of the Surgeon General. 1999.

        The Common Wealth Fund Survey revealed that surveyed Latino and Asian American girls exhibited more depressive symptoms than the African American or white girls.
        Schoen C, Davis K, Collins KS, Greenberg L, Des Roches C, Abrams M. The Commonwealth Fund Survey of the Health of Adolescent Girls. New York, NY: Commonwealth Fund; 1997.

        Among female high-school students in 1997, the rate of attempted suicide among Latino girls (14.9%) was one-and-a-half times that of African American (9.0%) and non-Hispanic white (10.3%) girls.
        CDC. Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance — United States, 1997. MMWR; 1998, 47: 47.

        However, when I made the comment, I actually had biracial Asians in mind.

        Chinese-Caucasian, Filipino-Caucasian, Japanese-Caucasian and Vietnamese-Caucasian individuals concludes that biracial Asian Americans are twice as likely as monoracial Asian Americans to be diagnosed with a psychological disorder. Zane and his co-investigator, UC Davis psychology graduate student Lauren Berger, found that 34 percent of biracial individuals in a national survey had been diagnosed with a psychological disorder, such as anxiety, depression or substance abuse, versus 17 percent of monoracial individuals.

      • JS — Many Latinos have admixtures coming from Spain’s colonization legacy.

        Genetic analysis shows Mexicans average almost 60% European and about 40% Amerindian. Of course, those percentages aren’t distributed evenly. It varies from region to region.

        Are you saying Latinos suffer from more depression than Asians and blacks because of genetic or sociological/economic factors?

        I don’t think those studies go into that much detail. They just say there’s more mental illness among Hispanics. I’m sure there are sociological/economic factors at work. However, the brain is incredibly complicated. The more complicated something is the more things can go wrong. Plus, studies show brain evolution has experienced enormous selective pressures over the last 10,000 years. That was after major population groups diverged. So I believe mixing genes that didn’t evolve to work together could cause problems too.

A mass-murder followed by suicide can only be committed if one is in a state of complete blaspheming of the Holy Spirit — that is, a belief that your sinful deeds are actually righteous, and thus you are not penitent — and no Christian could go through with it because they would understand it is an unforgiveable sin and precludes eternal life with God.

NYC would probably be a lot cheaper and less desirable because of the competition coming from other cities that offer the same or similar amenities. Sure, no city can play up to NYC’s bestial image, when it comes to its vibe and diversity, but no one really wants to live in a prole town that has no jobs, stimulation and variety. There was a time when Chicago almost gave NYC a run for its money, for being a more dynamic and well maintained city.

      People nowadays just can’t think outside of the box anymore.

  11. Young kids in NYC wanting to self actualize with no prospects or just frittering their lives away with emptiness?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/08/realestate/student-loans-make-it-hard-to-rent-or-buy-a-home.html?action=click&contentCollection=Business%20Day&module=MostEmailed&version=Full&region=Marginalia&src=me&pgtype=article

    It seems like many 20-something year olds are wasting time and money chasing the dream in NYC. Everything here is so damn expensive, quality of life is almost minimal, and let’s not forget, the prevalent of NAMs is so unbearable at times.

    Ms. Cooke in that article, most certainly doesn’t need a dog as part of the package, when it comes to living in NYC. She probably doesn’t even need to be in NYC to become a Digital Marketeer. But a lot of these spoiled kids hate their hometowns, because there are no meaningful jobs where they live, and greater America is one big joke.
