Since the thread over there was shut down I figured we could continue to discuss here.
In case you've been under a rock here is the story of the shooting -
50 killed by loser with shotgun and some form of Evil Black Rifle (lots of white lettering on both guns).
I noticed the media is largely claiming the noble position in not posting the shooters manifesto but they appear to be happy to talk about it as long as it fits their narrative. Here is the manifesto, it's worth a read - http://www.freepdf.info/index.php?post/Tarrant-Brenton-The-Great-Replacement
The media is not surprisingly trying to paint this loon as a right winger but if we can trust his alleged words from the manifesto he is some form a strange white isolationist eco-terrorist that wants everyone to stay in their own country and not breed more than the environment can "handle". He blames corporations as much as foreign "invaders" and calls for the killing of CEOs that both hurt the environment and encourage globalism.
Couple of interesting excerpts -
Were/are you a supporter of Donald Trump?
As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no."
Why did you choose to use firearms?
I could have chosen any weapons or means.A TATP filled rental van. Household flour, a method of dispersion and an ignition source.A ballpeen hammer and a wooden shield.Gas,fire,vehicular attacks,plane attacks, any means were available. I had the will and I had the resources.
I chose firearms for the affect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the affect it could have on the politics of United states and thereby the political situation of the world. The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state, social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines. With enough pressure the left wing within the United states will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the US will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty. This attempted abolishment of rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the US along cultural and racial lines.
