A white Australian right-wing terrorist who livestreamed his sickening shooting spree on Facebook is one of four people arrested over dual mosque attacks which left 49 dead and 48 injured on New Zealand’s ‘darkest day’.
The gunman, who identified himself as Brenton Tarrant from Grafton, NSW, Australia, stormed the Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch on the country’s South Island about 1.30pm, opening fire with a semi-automatic shotgun and a rifle on hundreds of defenceless worshippers attending Friday prayers.
49 dead – so far.
Why? Because they were muslim.
The reason: in the gunman’s own words, from a 74 page “manifesto” he wrote, as excerpted in the Daily Mail article:
He said he was born to ‘working class, low-income family… who decided to take a stand to ensure a future for my people’.
‘My parents are of Scottish, Irish and English stock. I had a regular childhood, without any great issues,’ he wrote.
The gunman said he carried out the massacre to ‘directly reduce immigration rates to European lands’.
He said New Zealand was not his ‘original choice’ for the attack but said the location would show ‘that nowhere in the world was safe’.
‘We must ensure the existence of our people, and a future for white children,’ he wrote.
He wrote that the shooting was an ‘act of revenge on the invaders for the hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by foreign invaders in European lands throughout history’.
‘For the enslavement of millions of Europeans taken from their lands by the Islamic slavers… for the thousands of European lives lost to terror attacks throughout European lands,’ the gunman wrote.
In other words, this sick, hate-infested murderer “avenged” thousands of years of Muslim actions against Europeans by killing people who had nothing to do with it, but also were of the Muslim faith.
That is the equivalent of a Black man killing every White person he sees to “avenge” White oppression and a White man killing every Black he sees to “avenge” Black crime, a Jewish person killing every German he sees to “avenge” the holocaust, etc. etc. etc. ad nauseam.
You’re this color, , or this nationality, so you’re guilty. The fact that you, personally, had nothing to do with what I’m “avenging”? Irrelevant’n’immaterial.
The sickness continues. Will it ever end?
