He scripted it like a sick Hollywood movie, starring himself as the pathetically wronged victim who would exact revenge on those who spurned him.
Deranged, privileged California loser Elliot Rodger filled a 141-page manifesto with hate and loathing — for himself and his targets, from the most popular sorority girls to his annoying roommates — detailing everything from their tortured deaths to his own suicide.
“I am Elliot Rodger . . . Magnificent, glorious, supreme, eminent . . . Divine! I am the closest thing there is to a living god,’’ the 22-year-old college student, son of a “Hunger Games” assistant director, boasted.
“Humanity is a disgusting, depraved and evil species. It is my purpose to punish them all. On the day of Retribution, I will truly be a powerful god, punishing everyone I deem to be impure.
“This is the story of my entire life. It is a dark story of sadness, anger, and hatred. It is a story of a war against cruel injustice . . . I didn’t want things to turn out this way, but humanity forced my hand.’’
The demented document reveals the troubled mind of the self-described social outcast who killed six and wounded 13 in a seething weekend revenge-for-rejection rampage in Santa Barbara.
The killing spree ended with Rodger — who grew up seemingly wanting for nothing — taking his own life with one of his three guns.

Throughout his rants, he seethes that despite his wealth and relative good looks, he was still a virgin, unable to get a woman into bed despite many attempts while other, lesser guys got the gals. Because of that, “Women should not have the right to choose who to mate and breed with,’’ he fumed in the tome. “That decision should made for them by rational men of intelligence. If women continue to have rights, they will only hinder the advancement of the human race by breeding with degenerate men and creating stupid, degenerate offspring.
“Women are like a plague,’’ Rodger wrote. “They don’t deserve to have any rights . . . Women are vicious, evil, barbaric animals, and they need to be treated as such.
“In an ideal world, sexuality . . . must be outlawed. In a world without sex, humanity will be pure and civilized. Men will grow up healthily, without having to worry about such a barbaric act. . . . In order to completely abolish sex, women themselves would have to be abolished.
“In order to carry this out, there must exist a new and powerful type of government, under the control of one divine ruler, such as myself.’’
Among those Rodger killed were at least two male roommates and a third man whom he stabbed to death in his Santa Barbara apartment.
Authorities identified them Sunday as Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, of San Jose, 19-year-old George Chen, also of San Jose, and 20-year-old Weihan Wang, of Fremont. All three were students at the University of California at Santa Barbara, where Rodger also studied and carried out part of his bloodbath.
Two sorority sisters and a male student at a deli were shot dead by Rodger.
