The German Eurodance group “Masterboy” released a hugely popular single in 1994, called “Feel the Heat of the Night”. Strange how similar it is to Eric and Dylan’s style. Were round glasses really popular back in the 90’s? Considering how popular this single was at least in Europe, I bet they probably heard the song at some point.
My junior year in high school, I was caught with a loaded, stolen handgun on school property at my school in East Tennessee. Since the owner of the pistol didn’t want to press charges, I simply forfeited the handgun to the local sheriff’s deputy, then was promptly expelled from the school. No…
If that person knew anything about guns, he would know how different video games are from reality, how over-simplified video games are.
And what does he mean by violent video games? Games where a lot of blood is visible? Video games where you at all kill someone? Where you only kill real beings and creatures? Because technically, Super Mario is a “violent game”, all the time you stomp on those goompas, you’d actually be crushing them.
Rare picture of Dylan Klebold.
Let the article speak for itself.
So, a tragic event happened that everyone speaks of. As in matter of fact, two of a similar nature happened quite recently. I believe you know what I’m speaking of – the massacre in the shopping center and the school massacre in Connecticut. First off, I need to make my own statement about the “Columbiners” who say that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had an “actual” or “real” reason to start their massacre – because “they targeted their own students who they were sick and tired of”. At once I will admit I believe that is one of the factors they did it. What I do not agree with, however, is that their reason is any more “legitimate” or “real” than what happened at Sandy Hook.
As a previous bully victim myself, I had an easy time understanding what Eric and Dylan meant in their diaries. Yet every day I am thinking: “Thank GOD I never thought in the exact same way as the Columbine perpetrators to indulge in what the boys did; thank GOD I never threw my life away”. Yes, I do believe they both had personality issues. I believe the one most people will notice straight away is Eric’s narcissism. However, there is a clear-cut difference between PERSONALITY disorders and psychosis, not understanding how the dynamics of the world function.
I do not wish to make a statement about the sanity of the perpetrator of the elementary school, seeing as not enough information has been put available. Not making a statement about his mental stability ALSO means to NOT label him insane. Most people will of course react with an “Oh my god but he shot kids how can he not be insane”-statement. To counter this, I will provide you with this link: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/aug/24/breivik-verdict-sane-21-years
What it says in this link is basically that Breivik was declared sane.
Anyways, saying that the perpetrators of Columbine have any more “real” reason to do what they did hypocritical. Columbiners are known to research the Columbine case in depth. However, they judge the perpetrator of Sandy Hook Elementary school without having researched his case.
Secondly, I want to voice my opinion about gun control. People, please stop it. Whereas I DO agree that guns are distributed too loosely in the US, I think it’s time to take a look at what the FUCK is going on in the US, and rather focus on the people instead. People will kill anyway. Heck, you can easily just type in on Google search “Anarchist cookbook pdf free download” and there you go, how to build some destructive bombs in 1 2 3. What seems to be going on in the US since the 80’s/90’s is a huge massacre wave (excuse me for stating the obvious). The term “school shootings” was never used commonly before the 90’s. There’s something going on with the mentality of people. It’s time to research why people are going berserk, and fix that. The mind is far more powerful than the gun itself. Guns are always going to be around, especially in a gun-culture oriented country like the US. Doesn’t it make more sense dealing with the root of the problem, rather than just the means the perpetrator used?
In summary: Don’t judge what you haven’t researched. You’re biased if you choose to research any other massacre in depth, but don’t even bother with this one. Wait for the materials to come out, then make a judgement.
Why are you worried about dying, seeing as you’re already dead bro?
Dylan predicted the he and Eric would have future followers. Not many have followed in their foot steps, but they are still remember as if they are still alive. They will never be forgotten for better or for worse.
As in matter of fact, I believe it is worth noting that Seung-Hui Cho, the perpetrator of the Virginia Tech Massacre on the 16th of April 2007, believed that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were “martyrs”, and just like the Columbine perpetrators, Seung-Hui Cho was also talking about a revolution.
In one of the basement tapes, Eric mentions this: “We’re going to kick-start a revolution.”
Seung-Hui Cho mentions these statements in his video tapes: “Generation after
generation, we martyrs, like Eric and Dylan, will sacrifice our lives to fuck you thousand folds for what you Apostles of Sin have done to us.”
"Let the revolution begin!"
"Like Easter, it will be a day of rebirth. It will be a start of a revolution of the Children that you fucked."
In addition, both Eric Harris and Seung-Hui Cho were ranting about snobs.
Here is Seung-Hui Cho’s excerpt: “To you sadistic snobs, I may be nothing but a piece of dog shit.”
Eric Harris, in his journal: “fucking snotty rich fuckheads [Censored by J.C.Sheriff Office] who rely on others or on sympathy or $ to get them through life should be put to this challenge.”
A similarity between Dylan Klebold and Seung-Hui Cho is the fact that they both wanted to be part of something they weren’t. Dylan envied the lives of the jocks, Seung-Hui envied the lives of “hedonists”. In my opinion, they both have the same kind of people in mind, they just use different terminologies.
Seung-Hui: “Oh the happiness I could have had mingling among you hedonists, being counted as one of
you, only if you didn’t fuck the living shit out of me.”
Dylan: “I see jocks having fun, friends, women, LIVES.”
To summarize my point, I basically believe that Seung-Hui Cho was a follower of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold - he just didn’t directly say “I am a follower of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold”. He did, however, idolize the perpetrators, and had a similar philosophy to both of them.
