    I can't remember why I joined this war.
    It's complete bizarre. I really don't know what to make of it. I spent some time at 4chan back in the day and it never was really a pleasant place but mainly the bad taste humor was just that. Now the alt-right seems to have adopted all that and incoporate it into anything, no matter how vile their behavior is with people on certain boards celebrating the shooter as a "mad lad" for playing some meme music during his getaway. I'm at a total loss of what to make of that, do these people think it's still all for the lulz or is making everything so confusing and meta a part of the strategy? If it is, they have succeeded I truly don't know what to make of it apart from being disgusted of their actions.

    Another parallel with the Nazis is his focus on environmental preservation.

    his manifesto is a long, badly written, variation of every post you've read from online reactionaries, from 2nd amendment shit to brexit taking back control to muslims are rapists, you wouldn't be surprised to read it from caf members who post insane conservative shit before ducking out

    In his manifesto he has a section where he argues that “green nationalism” is the only way forward.

    No not his manifesto but his last post where he actually gave out a link to his streaming before going to shoot.

    Some of the comments on the shooting were horrifying. Human being are truly in a dark place.

    the shooter here, he blames climate change on brown people and essentially calls for europe to murder them as a way of fixing it

    I already knew these right-wing extremist nazis were mentally ill and deranged but that is genuinely staggering.

    NZ, esp the South Island is so isolated and desolate that it can create a society of strange thoughts.

    We are aware of the manifesto of this shooter. Please don't post a link for it or screenshot it. There's no need to give the terrorist extra attention.

    The shooter apparently decided to carry out an attack while on holiday in Europe in 2017.

    The Nazis also had a focus on ecology and passed laws about environmental protection. Ad this guy talked about it too.

    Speculating here, but based on his language he't not* a product of his surroundings - he claims to be motivated by attacks in Europe and during the attack he adopted the language of an international online forum.

    *primarily, on the surface, with limited information.

    the shooter mentioned candace in what was very obviously an attempt to throw her under the bus, without sincerity, and this fecking cretin actually manages to make it worse for herself

    Four people are in custody - three men and one woman
    Mike Bush has confirmed that four people are in custody, but that things are moving very quickly.

    He will not confirm if it is a terrorist attack, but says “it does not get more serious than this”.

    Why is this not counted as a terrorist attack? Seems like a clear cut terrorist attack to me.

    Yeah it's so obviously not a terrorist attack . It's just a white guy with mental issues with the rest of accomplices being there for him with moral support . We just need to wait for a tweet from Trump to confirm all this .

    Meanwhile, President Trump tweets about Breitbart (one hour ago, to be precise).

    It's clearly a terrorist attack and I imagine it will be branded as such.

    Fecking horrible man, shocked. I thought New Zealand would be one of the better places to live as a Muslim as it would be peaceful with little violence heard of :(

    This was not a mentally deranged dude. This is a well planned attack with him posting photos of the weapons in Twitter etc. This guy is a terrorist. A white nationalist terrorist.

    I'm guessing they need to do a formal inquiry. I don't think police procedures are updated to include people who livestream their shootings...

    I don’t see how they can’t class it as a terror attack.

    Attack carried out for a political/religious motive to make a political/religious point

    I am surprised at the lack of tweets and condolences messages from other country heads . If this was a Muslim shooter then everyone would be readily tweeting and social media would be lit with anger .

    Agree but I am not sure if its the categorisation of it is top priority for the folks involved at the moment. Matter of time though.
