Chris Harper Mercer

NY Times article has absolutely nothing about him being black. But neighbors said he was extremely shy and anti-social. And also, that he didn’t like loud noises, which is a possible indicator of Asperger’s syndrome. I think this all adds up to beta-male rage.

There is more information in the British newspaper, The Telegraph, where we find out about the father, Mr. Mercer, and the fact that the half-black Chris Harper Mercer may have been a neo-Nazi sympathizer, and that he has a British passport.

Only the Daily Beast told us that his mother is black and his father is white.

I suspect that the media will drop this story very soon, because they can’t fit the gunman into any of their standard narratives.

LA Times writes about the Switzer Learning Center where Chris Harper Mercer attended high school:

Mercer was among five students listed in the graduating class at Switzer Learning Center, according to a special graduation section published by the Torrance-based newspaper, the Daily Breeze, in 2009.

The Switzer Learning Center, also in Torrance, teaches students with special needs, emotional disturbances, autism, Asperger’s syndrome and other issues. According to its website, the school “has a long history of working with children who have been unsuccessful in traditional classrooms because they need the special attention and encouragement that only a school like Switzer can provide.”

Elliot Rodger also attended a special school, although I don’t think that Elliot had Asperger’s syndrome. Social phobia does not equal Asperger’s syndrome.

This also reminds me of Adam Lanza because in both cases the mother took the son to the shooting range. (“Neighbors at a sprawling apartment complex in Torrance said they thought it was odd when a few years ago they saw Chris Harper Mercer and his mother carrying black cases that the neighbors suspected held firearms.”) Perhaps if you have a kid with behavioral problems, taking him to the shooting range is a bad idea?

  1. This article admits he was targeting Christians, but focuses on how he modeled himself after the “predominantly Catholic Irish Republican Army”. The article says “predominantly Catholic” about the IRA in two different places. This redundancy would be struck by an editor unless the editor had the goal of bashing Catholics.

  2. He listed his political views as “conservative Republican.”

    • Is that why he likes the Irish Republican Army? Or he likes the IRA so he likes Republicans.

  3. I’m curious what people here think of the IRA connection

    • He was fascinated by it but didn’t have any actual connection or understanding of it. It was his version of memorizing train schedules.

  4. He has a cute White step sister.

    This is a lesson to be learned about White/black intermixing!

    • Bi-racial offspring have higher rates of many diseases (especially mental illness) because they’re inheriting genes that didn’t evolve to work together. The genetic term for it is outbreeding depression and actually becomes worse with successive generations as the genes are repeatedly shuffled and reshuffled.


      October 2, 2015 at 11:57 am

      • Truly amazing! I didn’t know this.


        October 2, 2015 at 2:29 pm

      • If this was true one would expect to find a high level of mental illness in Latin America where mixing has been going on for centuries. Yet, mental illness in Latin America is nowhere as prevalent as the US.

        “Mental illness” is quite the bogus concept anyway. You are considered mentally ill if you have “anxiety” or “depression”.

      • Is this actually true, or an example of WN wishful thinking? The suicide rate tends to be highest in homogenous countries such South Korea and Finland.

      • A new study of 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. The higher rate held up even after the researchers controlled for differences between the groups in age, gender and life stress, among other factors.

      • So why would homogenous South Koreans be killing themselves at far higher rates than mixed Brazilians?

      • Please supply a peer-reviewed study supporting your claims. I looked it up on the internet and could find nothing relating to “outbreeding depression” except something on Wikipedia with one citation, having to do with….plants. You are making shit up, I believe.

        Also, the fellow who bravely took 7 bullets and is now in the hospital (Mintz?) looks to me to be racially mixed. So what’s up with that?


        October 3, 2015 at 11:15 am

      • That research doesn’t stop scores of unattractive Asian women with White beta guys from copulating and raising kids.

        Blame it on the suicide of the West!

    • If it’s true he was a Nazi sympathiser maybe he would have agreed with you. There aren’t many people who sympathise with a political philosophy that would have seen them compulsorily sterilised.

      prolier than thou

      October 2, 2015 at 2:16 pm

      • Well, his dating profile said he did not want kids, ever, so maybe he’d be fine being sterilized.

    • Was his beta madness due to his black genetics? Manosphere types would say it comes from his white father.


      October 3, 2015 at 1:00 pm

  5. The offspring of interracial unions have higher rates of alienation. One more reason to avoid miscegenation.


    October 2, 2015 at 11:33 am

    • I’m beginning to think that black americans are dysgenic, because of their black/white admixture. They seem to be less mentally balanced than their African cousins!

  6. He may have been involved with 4Chan and posted there right before he did it, so that would make him more omega than beta.

    About the Christian thing:

    As he reloaded, the shooter ordered the students to stand up if they were Christians.

    “And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second,'” Boylan’s father, Stacy, told CNN. “And then he shot and killed them.”

    • “that would make him more omega than beta”

      “Beta-male rage” sort of means omega rather than beta.

      • “Beta-male rage” sort of means omega rather than beta.

        Then why not say it. You seem stuck on this beta male rage nonsense.

        Nothing beta – normal – about this guy. Or any guys like him so why continue mislabeling?

        If you can make the distinction between Asperger’s syndrome and Social phobia you should be able to make the beta/omega distinction here.

        These guys are SUB omega.

  7. ” he didn’t like loud noises, which is a possible indicator of Asperger’s syndrome.”

    The article also mentions he “wore the same outfit every day — combat boots, green Army pants and a white T-shirt.” People with asperger’s also tend to do the same thing every day whether it’s eating the same foods or wearing the same clothes. That along with his other behavior leads me to think your speculation is correct.

    I find it interesting the NYTimes stuck a camera in his white father and sister’s faces but didn’t even show a picture of his black mother even though he’d always lived with her.


    October 2, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    • “The article also mentions he ‘wore the same outfit every day — combat boots, green Army pants and a white T-shirt.'”

      I agree that’s also an indicator of Asperger’s.

      • People with Asperger’s, of which I am one, are far more likely to be on the receiving end of violence than the giving end.

        Maybe if all people were taught respect for human life, and maybe if we lived in a society that accorded dignity to all humans, there wouldn’t be massacres like this. I don’t care what a person’s social acumen letter designation is. Alpha, beta, omicron, samech, or n-with-a-tilde-over-it.

      • There’s nothing wrong with having Asperger’s syndrome.

      • You’re absolutely right, Lion. There is, in fact, nothing wrong with having Asperger’s syndrome.

        Almost all of us Aspies simply want to be accepted as the quirky but good-hearted people we are. Most of us, due to our experiences with bullying, have learned to be extra-compassionate. We may have outbursts or meltdowns, but with therapy and coping skills, we find ways to function in society.

  8. No use deciphering his random “beliefs” – personality disorder exacerbated by broken home, which studies show is especially damaging to sons.

  9. Like Elliot Roger, he also might suffer from anti-blond prejudice:

    “Boylan, 18, was hit in the back by a bullet that traveled down her spine. While she lay bleeding on the floor, the gunman called out to her, “Hey you, blond woman,” her mother said.”


    October 2, 2015 at 12:51 pm

    • Elliot didn’t have anti-blonde prejudice, rather those are the girls that gave him a hard-on, and he hated them for not returning his sexual interest.

  10. Mercer posted his profile on the dating website Spiritual Passions. Out of terror of actually meeting a girl, he purposely used a dating site nobody ever heard of and probably had nobody else on it.

  11. “In a post published in September, after the shooting death of Darren Goforth, a sheriff’s deputy killed as he filled his squad card at suburban Houston gas station, the user with Mr. Mercer’s email address said it was the inevitable result of the Black Lives Matter movement. “In case anyone’s wondering, I’m not on the side of the suspect, I’m on the side of the officer, and generally don’t agree with the black lives matter protests,” he said.

    The user, who posted under the user name lithium_love, shared an enormous amount of pornography, as well as movies like “Illuminati Secrets” and “U.F.O. Secrets of the Third Reich.”

  12. But neighbors said he was extremely shy and anti-social. And also, that he didn’t like loud noises, which is a possible indicator of Asperger’s syndrome. I think this all adds up to beta-male rage.

    Now is not the time for Richard Dawkins to launch a presidential campaign?

    Elliot Rodger also attended a special school, although I don’t think that Elliot had Asperger’s syndrome. Social phobia does not equal Asperger’s syndrome.

    I’m going to be blunt here: I was expecting you to emphasize Mercer’s class background more than you have. Instead you’re going off, again, about Aspergers.

    • The term describing the race of a person, who, like Mercer–& Obama—has one Black parent and one White is “mulatto.”

      The term appears to be no longer in use in our public discourse; but strictly speaking, Obama is not the first Black President, he’s the first Mulatto President, if that’s any consolation.


      October 3, 2015 at 10:55 am

      • American culture has never made such a distinction. A person may be a mulatto, a quadroon, an octoroon, or a full-blooded African, but every one of them is black. One drop rule. It’s somewhat like the distinction between Welshmen, Englishmen, Scotsmen, and Cornishmen, which matters at some level, but they’re all British.


        October 3, 2015 at 11:49 am

      • Rick Martin is believed to be an octoroon. 1/8th black with Spanish and Corsican ancestry.

        I wouldn’t considered him black and he does well blending in with Spaniards and Euros in general. Puerto Ricans are a tricky bunch to categorize.

        Latin American caste politics isn’t the same as that of AngloProleSphere, where a mulatto would be considered “White” in their sphere, but “black” in ours.


        October 3, 2015 at 1:51 pm

      • Martin may be 1/8 “black” but it’s very unlikely he’s 1/8 African.

  15. At this stage, the default assumption should be false flag and the vigorous examination for any irregularities. The first odd thing I noticed off the bat was a series of three tweets by a black female spanning the time period between hearing shots fired and being lined up and loaded onto buses. The span of time was a mere 9-10 minutes. Seemed impossible.
