    This definitely has to be fake news because if you just have enough gun controls law this won't happen. NZ has very strong gun controls so therefore this didn't happen.

    I wonder why no one returned fire?

        New Zealand Shooter Hopes for U.S. Civil War: ‘Conservatism Is Dead, Thank God’

        According to his manifesto, the shooter describes himself as a socialist, “depending on the definition.” The shooter also declares his support for “environmentalism,” “worker’s rights,” and “responsible markets.”...

        On the one hand, the manifesto presents the political left as an enemy that conducted a “march through the institutions” and describes Antifa, communists, and Marxists as “anti-white scum.” Elsewhere, the shooter writes that “under some definitions,” he is both on the right and the left.

        Elsewhere, the shooter disparages conservatism and declines to identify with it, writing that “conservatism is dead, thank god,” and calling it “corporatism in disguise.” Conservatives, he says, “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.”

        Elsewhere in the document, the shooter identifies black conservative Candace Owens — obviously neither a white nationalist nor a supporter of violence — as the “person that has influenced me above all.”...

        ??????????????????????
        He sounds crazier than Beto O'Rourke and Ocasio-Cortes combined.

    New Zealand use to boost about their open border for immigration, now they have the new radicals who use violence like the democrats here do to pound in your face what they want you to agree to.
    Funny how tolerant these type of people are....as long as it's their way only. Like the 4 women in Arizona who pulled into a parking space, see a MAGA Hat on the dash so being democrats they slash his tires only to be caught on security cameras. The reason? We didn't agree with the hat.

        Finally, 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 ultimately result in a civil war that will eventually balkanize the US along political, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.

        This balkanization of the US will not only result in the racial separation of the people within the United States ensuring the future of the White race on the North American continent, but also ensuring the death of the “melting pot” pipe dream.

        Furthermore this balkanization will also reduce the USA’s ability to project power globally, and thereby ensure that never again can such a situation as the US involvement in Kosovo ever occur again(where US/NATO forces fought beside muslims and slaughtered Christian Europeans attempting to remove these Islamic occupiers from Europe).

            Dude is hard core lefty:

            "I chose firearms for the affect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the affect it could have on the politics of United states and thereby the political situation of the world. The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state,
            social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.
            With enough pressure the left wing within the United states will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the US will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty. This 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 US along cultural and racial lines."

            True dat.

    The NZ shooter gave a shout out to tRump and said tRump's speech and racism gave him support .
    tRump also is threatening violence with his comment-

    in an interview with right-wing Breitbart News that his supporters — including bikers and those in the police and military — could “play tough” and make things “very, very bad.”

    This illegitimate ill sociopathic narcissist must be called out for his dividing America with his hate speech, and promotion of violence promoted by Fox noise.
    This delusional autocrat must be corralled until the next election. The Republican party also is in with tRump and exhibits the same illness.

        Liar?

        The shooting was carried out by at least one gunman who posted on online “manifesto” stating white supremacist viewpoints and naming prominent Donald Trump supporter and right-wing American media personality Candace Owens as the person who most inspired him to commit acts of violence.

        He also praised Trump himself “as a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.” But he disavows Trump as “a policy maker and leader.”

          Why It’s Completely Dishonest to Claim Candace Owens ‘Inspired’ the Mosque Shooter
          The media is doing exactly what the terrorist wanted

          The media is circulating the hoax that Candace Owens is to blame for the horrific New Zealand mosque shooting when the gunman’s reference to her in his manifesto was clearly a sick joke meant to demonize the conservative commentator.

          28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant livestreamed his bloody rampage during attacks on two mosques in Christchurch which killed at least 49 people.

          Shortly after the massacre, Tarrant’s manifesto was discovered in which he posed himself the question, “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,” wrote Tarrant.

          The notion that Owens is too “extreme” for a mass murderer who has just killed 49 people is patently absurd and this passage is obviously intended as a sick troll and said in the knowledge that the media would seize upon it to demonize Owens, which is exactly what happened.

          The racist alt-right despises Candace Owens because she is a black woman who opposes an ethno-state. What better way to drag her through the mud than to pin the blame for a mass shooting on her?

          However, because the media wilfully fails to grasp the understanding that the alt-right hates mainstream conservatives because it sees them as being “cucked,” all nuance is lost and all conservatives are collectively demonized for the attack.

          His comments appear to be a fusion of trolling and ardent self-described fascistic ideology. So it's important to parse with care. He's not citing Candace as a real inspiration (Breivik is his inspiration). He's citing her to discredit conservatives, for whom he professes hatred.

          — Michael Tracey (@mtracey) March 15, 2019

          In addition, if Candace Owens is to blame for the shooting, then so is Spyro the Dragon and the Fortnite video game, both of which were also mentioned as influencing the shooter in his own manifesto. This is patently absurd.

          The terrorist also said he was an “eco-fascist” who didn’t like Trump’s policies while lavishing praise on Communist China. Does that mean all communists or environmentalists are to blame for the shooting? No.

          As many others have pointed out, the gunman’s reference to popular figures such as Owens and PewDiePie was part of a deliberate ploy to sow division and ignite a cultural civil war.

          By reacting as it is, the media is doing exactly what the shooter wanted.

          The guy literally wrote in his manifesto he wanted to start a civil war, race war and a war between the left and right and you absolute dumbf#!ks are reacting according to his plan.

          HE LITERALLY SAID IT IN HIS MANIFESTO

          WHAT MORE EVIDENCE DO YOU F#!KING NEED?

          New Zealand Mosque Terrorist Described Himself as an “Eco-Fascist” Who Hated Conservatism & Admired Communist China
          Killer decried “milquetoast civic nationalist boomers”

          The terrorist gunman who killed 49 Muslims at a mosque in New Zealand said in his own manifesto that he wanted “no part of” conservatism, describing himself as an “eco-fascist” and expressing admiration for Communist China.

          Answering the question “Were/are you a conservative?”, Brenton Tarrant wrote, “No, conservatism is corporatism in disguise, “I want no part of it.”

          “Conservatism is dead, thank god,” he also wrote, bemoaning the fact that conservatives did not see everything through the lens of race.

          Describing the arc of his political journey, the killer said, “When I was young I was a communist, then an anarchist and finally a libertarian before coming to be an eco-fascist.”

          Tarrant also wrote that he considered himself an “eco-fascist by nature.”

          He also expressed admiration for Communist China.

          “The nation with the closest political and social values to my own is the People’s Republic of China,” wrote Tarrant.

          Discussing intolerant aspects of Islam or engaging in legitimate debate about mass migration doesn’t make anyone complicit in mass shootings.

          Just as all Muslims are not to blame for Islamic terror attacks.

          The fact I have to point this out every time is *bleep*ing depressing.

          — Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) March 15, 2019

          Tarrant also claimed that he was both right and left wing, writing, “Depending on the definition, sure.”

          Tarrant also disavowed President Trump from the standpoint of his policies and decisions, answering the question, “Were/are you a supporter of Donald Trump” with the words, “Dear god no.”

          Tarrant was clearly an alt-right racist who despised both liberals and mainstream conservatives. His political positions occupied both fringes of the extreme right and left.

          His condemnation for mainstream conservatives, whom he dismissed as “milquetoast civic nationalist boomers” clearly illustrates how the media’s attempt to smear people like Candace Owens as being complicit in the attack is absurd and dishonest.

And couldn't find any condemnation out of the mosques in America about their ISIS brothers that liked beheading innocents, video taped, live, the above poster made a good point about the way this went down! Bottom line, most of these pork less animals can't be trusted, PERIOD!
