    Reports of a shooting at a 2nd Christchurch, NZ mosque. Police report at least one gunman remains at large and the risk in the city remains "extremely high."

    Shots fired at two locations, and a car bomb at a third. They are apparently using force to evacuate a significant portion of the population in affected areas. Sketchy reporting this far.

    And the mass media is already quoting experts saying that NZ really should have a central registration for all guns...as if that would change anything about the current attacks.

    Irony here is that if was a church there would be near zero coverage. Certainly not international coverage.

    Isn’t it funny that there was zero gun registration talk when the 2 Islamic brothers crippled Boston?

    Don't be so sure it won't. You're making logical deductions. That does not apply to the other side. (Ocasio Cortez, Ilian Omar, et al) Just sayin'

    I don't understand some people... I just watched the video. That's some messed up shite. He is a truly demented individual. Joking as he drives around shooting through the window after murdering dozens of people...

    If mass shootings in our own country haven't prompted a massive push for the abolishment of the second amendment, one in New Zealand is not going to.
    The left prefers the slippery slope. Take a little here, little there. Turn up the temp slowly and no one knows they're being boiled alive. They'll rattle the AWB sword during elections, but they don't have the power to swing it right now.

    Against my better judgement, I watched. I've seen some stuff in my time, but the woman in the street was where I couldn't take it anymore. Sickening stuff. The inhumanity of it, that you've depersonalized an entire group of people so deeply that you could do something like this.

    The only thing I could think of the whole time is how helpless you'd be in that situation. Imagine instead of a mosque, your church.
    If that one guy who rushed him early on had been armed though, this might have turned out a whole lot different. I hope history remembers his name, because it takes a rare type of courage to charge a man with a rifle.

    Agreed. Her screaming for help was chilling.

    That guy may have messed up the shooter's plan enough to save a few lives. He dropped all his mags and had a malfunction after picking up one of them.

    Wait thought the left said only mass shootings happen in America. Australia and NZ have strict gun laws. People didn't have a problem killing each other before gun powder was invited. Take guns away and evil will go find something else to kill with (ie UK and knives). AOC is already stepping into it by condemning thoughts and prayers. It isn't like US laws will stop murder in other countries, dummy.

    Because her name is in the manifesto.
    The media really hates her and uses anything it can to attack her.
    She is a threat to them because the black community is listening to her and many are waking up and leaving the D.

    This is like a shot of "reverse terrorism", with Muslims laying dead in their place of worship instead of christians or jews.

    Now we wait for the time and place of payback. Be vigilant.

    But did they use guns at all that day, or just the homemade bomb out of the pressure cooker?

    My local news WBTV just described one of the shooters as, and I quote, "a 28 year old WHITE GUY."

    Yeah they had guns. The pressure cooker was the big deal, but they ran around town and had a run in with a security guard or something at some point.

    They killed an MIT police officer (not security guard) with multiple gunshots

    A second cop died a year later from complications stemming from shrapnel he was hit with from a pipe bomb during the Watertown fight

    Not the whole manifesto, friend of mine sent me this:

    Gunman who opened fire on Christchurch mosque addresses attack in manifesto
    https://www.news.com.au/world/pacif...o/news-story/70372a39f720697813607a9ec426a734

    The pro-Trump manifesto of tonight’s New Zealand mosque mass shooter just surfaced

    The pro-Trump manifesto of tonight’s New Zealand mosque mass shooter just surfaced
    https://washingtonpress.com/2019/03...ew-zealand-mosque-mass-shooter-just-surfaced/

    Apparently from that manifesto.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    "Is there a particular person that radicalized you the most?

    Yes, the person that has influenced me above all was Candace Owens. Each time she spoke I was stunned by her insights and her own views helped push me further and further into the belief of violence over meekness. Though I will have to disavow some of her beliefs, the extreme actions she calls for are too much, even for my tastes.
    "

    And he gives his reasons for attacking one of the mosques.

    "Was there any reason you attacked that(those) mosque(s) in particular?

    Originally the mosque in Dunedin was the main target,particularly after watching the video on their facebook page named “Otago muslim association”

    h t t p s://www.facebook.com/Otago-Muslim-Association-206778229358786/

    The video war entitled “Very interesting video. Only for Muslims. Please do not redistribute” that proved their knowledge of their actions, and their guilt.

    h t t p s://www.facebook.com/206778229358786/videos/451628238207116/
    "

    Were/are you are "racist"?

    Yes,by definition, as I believe racial differences exist between peoples and they have a great impact on the way we shape our societies

    I also believe fertility rates are part of those racial differences and that the immigrants in our lands with high fertility must be forced out to ensure the existance of our race.

    So yes. I am a racist.

    Were/are you a "xenophobe"?
    No, no culture scares me. I am only wary of those cultures with higher fertility rates replacing others.

    Were/are you a "islamophobe"?

    No, I am not afraid of islam, only that, due to its high fertility rates, it will grow to replace other peoples and faiths.

    Were/are you a nationalist?

    Yes, predominantly an ethno-nationalist(I place importance on the health and well being of my race above all else).

    Were/are you a nazi?

    No, actual nazis do not exist.They haven't been a political or social force anywhere in the world for more than 60 years.

    Were/are you an anti-semite?

    No.A jew living in israel is no enemy of mine, so long as they do not seek to subvert or harm my people.

    Were/are you a neo-nazi?

    That is a very broad category of people, and the definition is fuzzy at best. So no, I don't believe so.

    Were/are you a conservative?

    No, conservatism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it.

    Were/are you a christian?

    That is complicated.

    When I know, I will tell you.

    Were/are you a fascist?

    Yes. For once, the person that will be called a fascist, is an actual fascist. I am sure the journalists will love that.

    I mostly agree with Sir Oswald Mosley's views and consider myself an Eco-fascist by nature.

    The nation with the closest political and social values to my own is the People's Republic of China.

    Was there a political figure or party in history you most associate yourself with?

    Sir Oswald Mosley is the person from history closest to my own beliefs.
