Was ER's attack an aesthic act that no other incel would-be-terrorist can possibly rival?

If you think about it, ER's rampage was the perfect postmodern media event - the only 'blemish' was that failed to get into the sorority house. Had he accomplished that he'd be in the same league as Ted Bundy, Ed Gein, John Wayne Gacy etc etc.

All the ingredients were there, ER had a brand new grievance which he was able to communicate to the public, he was a young, rich, non-ugly, reasonably articulate terrorist, he executed the attack in an idyllic setting - a small seaside California college town and his media strategy was top notch with the iconic YT video at sunset and the manifesto - while whiney and on the long side - written in competent, grandiose and florid prose.

Come to think of it, Brett Easton Ellis couldn't have dreamed this one up. No incel shooter, even if they manage blow up an entire sorority house full of blondes, can outmatch ER.

TL;DR it's over for would-be shootercels. They will always be mogged by ER.

When you overdose on your cope pills.

He was kinda the first. Alec Minassians "protest/rebellion/uprising" was far more epic but Elliot Rodger will always be the godfather of incels

No, Elliot lived a distinctly upper middle class lifestyle. Just read the manifesto, the neighborhoods he lived in, the schools he attended, the products he consumed on a daily basis while never holding any type of job.... Upper middle class no doubt. By non-ugly I mean still not Chad or Chadlite or anything, but you could notice he wasn't poor, he looked like a well put together normie in selfies and photos.

upper middle class, fair enough. although his dad did have a financial crisis that caused some struggle

as for the looks, he dressed nice but physically he was 4/10 and manlet, that's low normie.

I need uppers to type words right, 'aesthic' should obviously be 'aesthetic'.

I think over time ER will be in the leagues of Gein, and Bundy, for the very same reasons you've stated. Although his kill count is mediocre, if you look at ER's actions as an act of expression, it set a precedent for an entire generation. There will be murderers 50 years from now that will source him as inspiration.

He got defeated by a fuckin locked door. An he murdered two fellow incels. He's hardly a criminal mastermind.

The door was not my point, it's that all of the rest was perfect for an iconic media event people will remember for decades. That's why he will not be overshadowed. Lepine, Cho and Sodini never managed to get the message across - whereas ER could.

ER's "rampage" was a complete and total disaster.

The only thing of note he left behind is his diary/manifesto, everything he did in terms of action always ended up in utter and complete failure.

It was a major fuckup and nobody cares about it anymore, meanwhile the left is STILL butthurt over Timothy McVeigh and lusting for Chad Bundy.

What he did was pure art indeed. Just as Eric and Dylan set a milestone in school shootings with Columbine that so many admire, even the foids. Well, especially the foids. They are not able to create this own their own, thats why they are fascinated with it. Even when terribly failiing his ER, Elliot still built a legacy around it that cannot just be copied and maybe never will.
He made up this shit completely by his own to inspire a whole new generation of revengers.
