Last week, a gunman (whose name I refuse to share) opened fire in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, leaving nearly 50 dead and over 40 injured in what is likely New Zealand’s deadliest shooting.
And while one can easily look at this shooting with the same lenses as other shootings, wherein a debate about gun control is sparked, one document from the shooter himself reveals the very plan and intentions he had upon committing this egregious act.
The shooter’s 74-page manifesto is… confusing, to say the least (probably because he might have meant it to be a massive troll to exploit the media’s worst habits, but it’s worth taking a look at). He calls himself a fascist and a socialist, says he’s for “environmentalism”, “worker’s rights” and “responsible markets” but also lambasts and attacks communists, Marxists, and Antifa as “anti-white scum”. And according to Breitbart News, “elsewhere, the shooter writes that ‘under some definitions’, he is both on the right and the left.”
The shooter also writes that “conservatism is dead, thank god” and calls it “corporatism in disguise”. He says that conservatives “don’t even believe in the race, they don’t have the gall to say race exists” and “don’t even care if it does”. “The notion of a racial future or destiny is as foreign to them as social responsibilities.”
The shooter also seemingly trolls people in his manifesto, further telling me he meant for this manifesto to be shown to people, as he seemingly blames video games for his actions, saying “Spyro the Dragon 3 taught me ethno-nationalism” and “Fortnite trained me to be a killer.”
The shooter also trolls the readers by saying that conservative pundit Candace Owens, who is neither a white nationalist (she’s black) nor a supporter of violence, is the “person that has influenced me above all.” In a video he posted online (by the way, he used Facebook’s livestreaming service to shoot footage of a little bit of his shooting), he tells viewers to “subscribe to PewDiePie”, the YouTube channel of a man named Felix Kjellberg who has the most subscribed-to account in YouTube, with nearly 90 million subscribers and someone who seldom dabbles in politics.
But beyond the contradicting ideologies he pertains to have and the classless attempt at linking high-profile people who have nothing to do with him (which, again, might both be trolling of some sort), perhaps the single biggest indicator that this s.o.b. is an evil jerk (as if killing 50 people and wounding 40 others wasn’t enough), he also states his intentions behind the shooting.
In the manifesto, he says that his intention is “to spark a civil war in the United States by triggering crackdowns on the Second Amendment,” according to Breitbart News. He says he intends this shooting to lead to “fracturing” the U.S. along “cultural and racial lines.”
He intends to “create conflict between the two ideologies within the United States on the ownership of firearms in order to further the social, cultural, political, and racial divide within the United States… This conflict over the 2nd Amendment and the attempted removal of firearms rights will eventually result in a civil war that will Balkanize the U.S. along political, cultural, and most importantly racial lines.”
The shooter also predicts his attack will lead to “calls for the removal of gun rights from whites in the United States… that is the plan all along.” He also states that, while he could’ve used a variety of methods for carrying out his terrorist attack, he chose guns “for the effect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the effect it would have on the politics of the United States and thereby the political situation of the world… 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. The 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 U.S. along cultural and racial lines.”
All of this is what makes me think that, while much of this manifesto might be a troll to exploit the media, there might be some elements of truth to it.
Now, regardless of whatever ideology he says he has, whether he calls himself a fascist or a socialist while attacking communists and Marxists (which are all basically the same, but with slight differences), and while he appears to be a white supremacist all-the-while hoping white people in the U.S. will have their guns taken away from them, one thing is absolutely certain: his heart is nowhere near Christ.
The Left has already fallen for this guy’s trick of heavily politicizing this attack and may even see this as an opportunity to really move in on the 2nd Amendment (even though New Zealand’s gun laws are incredibly strict, so no new gun legislation enacted here would do anything either, not that the Left cares about that at all). So sadly enough, this poor excuse for a human being will likely be successful in further driving apart this country.
And it’s this precise desire (not to mention the fact that HE KILLED 50 PEOPLE AND WOUNDED 40 OTHERS) that tells me just how far his heart is from Christ. This is someone who literally wants to sow discord and chaos in the entire world.
While he does not like Muslims at all and calls them “invaders” on “foreign lands”, it’s clear to everyone who takes the time to even just skim the highlights of his manifesto that what drove him to do this was not mere Islamophobia.
He knew very well that a shooting in a mosque would horrify the Left far more than any other setting. I mean, New York and L.A. both upped security in mosques for a bit soon after the shooting took place. Now, I don’t blame them for having done it, it’s perfectly sensible. But when have you heard of them doing this when someone shot up a church?
Islam is the Left’s favorite religion, as evidenced by the fact that even in America’s deadliest shooting and what can only be considered to be a terrorist attack, the Orlando night club shooting, the Left was quick to not only blame the gun but also try and shift blame away from the shooter himself because he was Muslim. The media didn’t even dare try and call it a terrorist attack. Meanwhile, this shooter attacks two mosques and ABC News was quick to label it a terrorist attack.
There’s no doubt that it is, but the media and the Left will cover for Muslims more than anything else. The shooter likely knows this and that is likely the biggest reason for choosing them as his target.
As a result, the Left will likely be more willing to go after people’s guns so as to prevent something like this ever happening again (at least, that’s their story).
This attempt at gun grabbing, depending on how fierce it is, will definitely lead to an even bigger divide than what we already have.
Upon reading the highlights of the manifesto, particularly reading the parts about creating a divide and a fracture in America along cultural and racial lines, I can’t help but think the guy’s late for the party. Obama already did a pretty good job at dividing the nation along cultural and racial lines. We currently live in a society where being white is considered a bad thing and cause for discrimination, believing it to be some sort of justice for the centuries of white oppression over minorities (which were all largely caused by Democrats, but I digress).
This country is already heavily-divided along cultural, racial and political lines. In one corner, you have conservative right-wingers who love capitalism and see America as a beacon of hope, with liberty and justice for all. In the other corner, you have socialist left-wingers who love socialism/communism and see America not only as a mistake that never should’ve happened but as a threat to the progress of mankind and the planet itself.
These two corners are irreconcilable, in my mind. And to this shooter, it was easy enough to further fracture by committing this heinous act of terror and violence.
The ironic thing is that, upon literally writing these things down, he reveals his entire hand and it becomes easier to negate it… at least, in theory.
To sane people, they will read this over and think “okay, let’s just not politicize this and not have this guy get what he wanted, otherwise he’ll win.” But to the Left, they might see this (at least the ones who care enough to read it over) and they will think it’s the perfect opportunity to do just that.
After the Parkland shooting, many on the Left were up in arms (pun somewhat intended) about guns and a supposed lack of gun control in America (which likely wouldn’t have prevented this shooting anyway) and the divide further grew. Granted, part of the reason is that the FBI and Broward County Sheriff’s office basically ALLOWED for this shooting to happen in the first place, but the damage was done.
The Left shamelessly made that shooting to be their greatest asset. And they could do the same thing here. They won’t care that they’d be doing exactly what the shooter wants them to do. If they see an opportunity to strip freedoms and rights from people, they’ll take it.
I don’t know just how far they’ll go here, and I seriously doubt they’ll get anywhere near to abolishing the 2nd Amendment, but this does provide them with a stepping stone towards further growing their power.
Thankfully, the idiot shooter wrote this manifesto to tell us exactly what he planned and what kind of heartless monster he is (again, that’s without even mentioning the mere fact he slain around 50 people and wounded dozens of others). And yes, while I did establish that much of this was likely trolling the media, his racism and his intentions may be genuine. Certainly, division is what comes from this attack and he might know this as well. The fact that he acknowledges this will lead to division leads me to believe these intentions were real.
In any case, if the Left wishes to brand him as a right-winger, there is evidence against that. I wouldn’t necessarily brand him a left-winger either given what he wrote against the Left, but he’s definitely not a right-winger.
However, what I will brand him as is a heartless, Christ-less, evil man looking to exploit the racial divides in the world, taking up the mantle of a white supremacist (and he very well may be that anyway) and sowing discord with his evil actions.
I pray for the families of those slain and hope that the writing of this manifesto will lead to people realizing what he was doing and not seek to grant this sicko’s wishes.
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
