The New Zealand attacker appeared in court on Saturday, March 16 to be arraigned on one count of murder. Authorities say more counts are on the way at his next appearance on April 5. But his ideology appears to be a mixed bag.
“Conservatism is dead. Thank God. Now let us bury it and move on to something of worth…
With enough pressure the left wing within the United States will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the U.S. will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty .” Shooter statement – was part of the intention of the massacre to help spark a US civil war?
Two other people who were also armed were arrested, but authorities do not know their role, if any, in the mosque shootings. Originally, 4 people were detained, but one was released. The livestream video shows only the Australian born attacker.
The shooter claims he went to Pakistan in a Facebook post, which revealed a confused ideology other than simply “white nationalism” or “islamophobia.” He called himself an “eco-fascist” who advocated for “green nationalism.” His “manifesto” reads like an interview to “explain” his thoughts. (Which were horrendous and stupid).
The attacker’s weapons and magazines were covered in writings that referenced various incidents worldwide. In the attack, he used two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm. It was a well planned attack.
He obtained his firearm permit in November of 2017 (keeping in mind that he is a Native born Australian in a rigidly gun-controlled country). Authorities stated it appeared that his weapons had been modified. Of course, the government in New Zealand may now ban semi-automatic firearms entirely, which is the usual government’s knee-jerk reaction to the actions of sick people.
A woman at the mosque begged him for her life. He walked up to her and coldly shot her in the head. That is psychopathic behavior. The reason many media are withholding his name is due to that aspect of his actions- he loves the attention, the “accolades” he thinks he’s receiving. That man is a narcissistic nutjob.
