New Zealand mass shooting

Very sad. The murder of innocent people is horrible and evil. Here is a recitation of the facts, by REUTERS:

WELLINGTON, March 15 (Reuters) – At least one gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 during Friday prayers at two New Zealand mosques in the country’s worst ever mass shooting which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned as terrorism.

A gunman broadcast live footage on Facebook of the attack on one mosque in the city of Christchurch, mirroring the carnage played out in video games, after publishing a “manifesto” in which he denounced immigrants.

New Zealand was placed on its highest security threat level, Adern said, adding that four people in police custody, three men and one woman, held extremist views but had not been on any police watchlists.

What is also horrible is the rush to blame conservatives and “deplorables” for the actions of a crazy person. Or Donald Trump. Or MAGA followers.

I just watched this Steven Crowder video, and he makes the case well:

    I thought something was wrong with what I was hearing. Nothing really added up, especially anything that had to do with American politics.

    Tarrant’s “Great Replacement Manifesto” has disappeared. Does nay one have a copy?

    Never mind I finally found a link and saved a hard copy. It seems that the Powers that be are working feverishly to erase this so that it can be spun as a Muslim hating MAGA White boy inspired by President Trump to rid the world of Muslims.

    I haven not read it yet. Just excerpts.

    As Crowder said the media is, as always, lying to us.

    Of particular interest to me is that the MSM is selling him as a white supremacist yet he said that Candace Owens was the biggest influence in his decision to take violence to the Muslims.

    He visited Pakistan and said that the Pakistan people are beautiful people. Then he goes back to his native land and kills a bunch of Muslims? Kind of hard to round that peg.

    He said that he admires President Trump as a symbol of “white identity and common purpose” but not as a policy maker.

    Part of the manifesto;

    Were you taught violence and extremism by video games, music, literature, cinema?

    Yes, Spyro the dragon 3 taught me etho-nationailsm. Fortnite trained me to be a killer and to floss on the corpses of my enemies. No.

    Something is rotten in New Zealand.

    Tarrant also said he chose guns to carry out his attack to further divide the Unites States.

    We Mortals have been pushed beyond what most can handle any longer

    Losing the sense of who we are
    Losing the place we call home
    Losing our God given voice…

    How much more can we Mortals take of having the World of Muslims shoved down our throats?

    I read Tarrant’s manifesto. 95% of it very cogent, very sane and 100% spot on.

    While his words can not be summed up by a single sentence that he wrote this narrows down his protestation quite succinctly.

    The enemies of our children are being born in our lands right now, even as you read this.

    And we are as a nation at least the vocal part of our nation is celebrating their births and telling our children they should be ashamed of their own genetics and heritage. We have lost our selves.

    There is a lot to ponder. Tarrant is cognitively probably in the 130’s to 40’s IQ range.

    He claims he granted at the top of his Navy Seal class. I have not read about him elsewhere and don’t know if that is true or not.

    He studied the Art of War (though he does not say so to the best of my knowledge) it is evidence in his words and the cadence of his writing.

    My friend and I are going out for dinner, today is the first day I haven’t been down to my moms and she thinks I need to get out of the house.

    Scott Adams has the correct idea. imo
    Adams blames CN&N, with which it is difficult to argue. Adams says CN&N has spent so much time spreading their lies, aka Fake News, about Pres Trump to the masses, that it was inevitable that someone would snap. Adams had naught more to say, understandably so. 12:13

    Tucker Carlson read a few pieces of the manifesto on his show tonight. The evil man said he aligned with Communist China, and hoped to further split the U.S. and start a civil war.
    Iow, we were the actual targets.
    Sick, sick, sick

    Ban semi-automatic weapons with large magazines. That would be the first thing to do to stop it.

      Wrong. Didn’t work in Australia. Even in England, which has strict firearm laws, their big problem now is death by knife, bombs, or by cars and trucks. I know we all want a fast and simple answer to hate and violence, but life isn’t like that.

      Violence isn’t restricted to firearms. Two of the largest terrorist attacks in the United States didn’t involve firearms at all. Oklahoma City was carried out with a fertilizer bomb. The attacks on 9/11/2001 involved box cutters and airplanes.

      The same is true in other countries, such as Spain and England.
