Men’s Rights Activists: It’s ‘Hard to Blame’ Shooter Who Killed Woman He Was Fired for Sexually Harassing

Members of the “men’s rights” movement defended the former Iowa mall security guard who killed a woman he was reportedly fired for sexually harassing.

Commenters on the “red pillers” message board were quick to claim that Alex Kozak, who shot 20-year-old Andrew Farrington three times in the back, was the real victim because the system takes sexual harassment claims too seriously.

One commenter, named “Ziltoid,” wrote: “Like rape, does the term sexual harassment pretty much no longer have any real meaning? IE it’s safe to assume there’s no chance this guy actually touched her or said anything overtly lewd? As somebody who’s been job hunting for some time now picturing being fired, in this job market, over some twit finding you ‘creepy’… Sad to say I’m finding it hard to blame him.”

Another commenter went after Farrington, writing, “As far as I’m concerned, his being guilty of not giving these bitches the tingles is what caused him to get fired, and in turn, murder this chick.”

Samseau, another user, blamed Kozak’s family, writing, “He wasn’t being rude to anyone on his job. He wasn’t trying to be a pick-up artist on the job and shitting where he eats. His ‘prior-complaints leading up to his firing’ are almost certainly trumped-up charges. His crime? Being a beta male raised without a father and a domineering mother.”

User Red_Pillage also blamed society, writing that, “Society is churning out weak men with no masculine guidance by the truckload. Add to that the social ramifications of unrestrained and optimized hypergamy, what you get is men with nowhere to turn. That masculine energy will express itself in destructive ways if it is not channeled properly. There’s gonna be a lot more Elliot Rodger’s coming down the pike. Now in this case the guy apparently wasn’t an incel, but I would be willing to bet that his murderous rage came from (at least in part) sexual frustration coupled with losing his job.”
