Extreme level of brainwashing.

In many ways I find this event more disturbing than other mass killings.
Prob had mental health issues. Psychotic break, could be drug induced. Extreme paranoia etc.

True. Loon of the week Id say rather than some deep belief.

Or maybe he just hated Muslims with a passion due to what he saw and read and acted with extreme aggression on it.

But the above will sound way better to deflect attention as a once off.

There is so much talk of censorship online etc but yet these images are freely circulating, just as the video of this will. This is deeply wrong, in my opinion. These things radicalise people who are unstable and sick and violent.
Did you feel the same about the propaganda pic of the Kurdish child on the beach??

Or, more likely all 4 in custody are just evil neo-nazi batsards

Hate is one thing. Mass murder is a class of a bigger issue.
No right thinking individual would even think of it.

Shocking for NZ, a safe country you’d think.

The people on there calling this guy a nutter are seriously downplaying this l, I’ve flicked through the manifesto, this is a deep hated acquired over time and feed by his own bias. This was no random nutcase who just snapped this was planned and the guy who done it had all his mental faculty’s intact

BBC News now reporting:
Officials have said four people are currently in custody. Initial reports said that was three men and one woman.

In her latest press conference, the prime minister said three men "connected to this attack" were being held. One is an Australian citizen and "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist", she said.

A fourth person was arrested separately, she said, but has not given further information.

Hate is one thing. Taking countless innocent lives off the back of some twisted extremist ideals is another and should never be excused or accepted in a civilized society.

I agree it shouldn't t be accepted, but Im tired of 'mental health' issues blamed for this.
This was a hatred that was fuelled overtime for a reason.

I would have marked New Zealand down as a safe country. Far away and idyllic to be almost immune to such atrocity.

Without downplaying the tragedy though, it seems ironic that it occured in a place called Christchurch.

Hate is toxic
Islamophobia is hate
Why would anyone want to watch the video?

Jesus. He started the Live stream by saying the "Subscribe to Pewdiepie" meme.. (There is no link to him, it's a meme that is everywhere.) And then his manifesto has the Navy Seal meme. Guy is whack.


Sad sad story.
