Psychologist on Elliot Rodger: Were “Homosexual Impulses” to Blame for Mass Killings?

by at . Comments

Robi Ludwig is a psychologist who needs to have her license revoked immediately.

The doctor appeared on Fox News this week and was asked about Elliot Rodger, the VERY troubled 22-year old who killed six people in California Friday night before shooting himself in the head.

Prior to this heinous act, Rodger posted a video online and penned a manifesto that blamed women for choosing "stupid and obnoxious guys" over him, while ranting about being treated "like scum" by the opposite sex.

What might have been Rodger's motivation for committing mass murder? Ludwig has a theory.

"When I was first listening to him, I was like, ‘Oh, he’s angry with women for rejecting him,'" Ludwig says in the above clip. "Then I started to have a different idea: 'Is this somebody who is trying to fight against his homosexual impulses?

"Was he angry with women because they were taking away men from him?"

Ludwig then said Rodger's words and actions may indicate signs of "early schizophrenia," while emphasizing she's pretty much making this up on the spot, having never actually talked with the young man, of course.

Sounds like someone totally worthwhile of a television appearance, huh?

Rodger shot three women outside sorority house in the college town of Isla Vista around 9:30 Friday evening.

He then killed a bystander inside a deli and subsequently drove around while police chased him, spraying bullets out the window and running down pedestrians in his way.

Authorities say Rodger was wounded by a police gunshot to his hip at one point and subsequently took his own life.

Through their attorney, his family released the following statement over the weekend:

"The Rodger family offers our deepest compassion and sympathies to the families involved in this terrible tragedy. We are experiencing the most inconceivable pain and our hearts go out to everyone involved."
