NZ Christchurch Shooter Illustrates The Evils Of White Nationalism ~ VIDEO

"We, New Zealand, we were not a target because we are a safe harbor for those who hate. We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism."
“We, New Zealand, we were not a target because we are a safe harbor for those who hate. We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism.”

Fayetteville, AR – -(AmmoLand.com)- The terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing forty-nine and wounding many others, illustrates once again as if we needed a new example, of the horrors that extremist hatred can perpetrate.

The murderer, who will only be referred to in this article with terms of disparagement and not by name, has been captured by police officers who forced him off the road and dragged him from his vehicle at gunpoint—and several others have been detained as suspects.

This attack brings to New Zealand a reality that we in American have been experiencing, namely the rise of terror from the far right and far left, an ideology that seeks to wall off “white culture” from contact with people perceived as the Other.

In a manifesto to explain what he was about to do, he quotes the white supremacist slogan called the Fourteen Words, “We must secure an existence for our people and a future for white children,” a Freudian slip that reveals the desperate fear that he and his ideological fellows feel. This rallying cry is an expression of weakness, a belief that “whiteness” is something so fragile that the slightest mixing will shatter it.

What the coward fails to acknowledge or perhaps even to realize is the fact that his whining about being a European, as if ancestry were an achievement to be proud of, undermines his argument. He is an Australian who carried out his crimes in New Zealand, two nations that I am unable to find on a map of Europe.

To contrast the vile beliefs of the terrorist, I offer two passages from the press conference given by New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern:

“Christchurch was the home of these victims. For many, this may not have been the place they were born. In fact, for many, New Zealand was their choice, the place they actively came to and committed themselves to, the place they were raising their families, where they were part of communities they loved and who loved them. It was a place that many came to for its safety, a place where they were free to practice their culture and religion.”

She went on to say,

“We, New Zealand, we were not a target because we are a safe harbor for those who hate. We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism, because we’re an enclave for extremism. We were chosen for the very facts that we are none of these things, because we represent diversity, kindness, compassion, a home for those who share our values, refuge for those who need it. And those values, I can assure you, will not and cannot be shaken by this attack.”

As a white American whose ancestors are mostly Danes and Celts, or so my mother told me and my skin confirms on a sunny day, I state unequivocally that PM Ardern speaks for me. The purpose of my articles here and a consistent message in a lot of my writing is to defend human rights, rights that every one on this planet possesses, regardless of race, religion, and country of birth. The people who were killed were not the invaders. The invader was the sniveling loser who felt so afraid, as a white man on land that was taken from the Māori natives, that he regarded himself as entitled to murder people who were doing nothing wrong.

It is the duty of all good people to repudiate his evil.

    God, this article is freaking trash. Good luck preserving the 2A once America becomes majority non-white, dipsh*t.

    But didnt you know that our values are everyone`s values because we are all the same, and in time they will “see the light” and accept a culture/values that are entirely at odds with their own because “that is who we are”/sac Greg, you are an anti white scum bag, in real leftists fashion, your claim to support for gun rights in undermined when you attack the group that created the concept, fought to secure it, and fights to protect it against a never ending stream of invaders that your mentally sick world view fights to import. “This rallying cry… Read more »

    Why is it that when a muslim murders thousands it is referred to by the media (or democrat) as a “Political or Religious Action/Agenda”, but when a Non-muslim white person commits a similar crime, it’s automatically called a mass murder?
    Just more left wing BS!

    Muzzies can’t even get along in their own territory let alone any other country. They are not a peaceful group and they don’t assimilate well into new environments. Ask the people around Mt. Pleasant, Mi how they get along. They have taken over the area and use a marquee to advertise death to Christians and other slanderous messages. They learn how to fly aircraft into buildings and trucks into people and buildings. I am not believing they are peace loving.

    New Zealand’s PM put on a burka and groveled to the Muslims. She is not of their faith, she needn’t wear a burka (reporters at the scene did not wear one). Female version of Obama (i know-that is redundant).

    I read some of these letters and I see comments made by people enslaved to Satan by their own hatred. Yes Muslim extremists commit crimes against Christians, this does not excuse acts of retaliation against Muslims who were not involved in the crimes. Can’t catch the bad guy, kill an innocent bystander and it’s all good. If you are so tough as to justify the murder of women and children why don’t you track down an ISIS fighter or two, kill them while you are looking them in the eye, and bring back their heads. They killed some of our… Read more »

    120 Christians killed by Islam last week in Africa, crickets from the media, last 10 years since Obummer, 900,000 Christians killed in the name of the religion of peace, Islam . You won’t see that on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC,USAToday, NYT, Washington Post, etc I wonder how all these Islam apologists will react when some jihadist shows up to cut their heads off…

    I am so weary of being blamed.
    Excuse me, but where is this nation of “White” located?

    And I thought it was just the U.S.A. that automatically blamed everything bad that happens on White folks.

    This wreaks of Jussie. Another manufactured right wing attack that was not right wing. Again, using racism and Trump to further divide people. Another left winger in right wing clothing. Other articles on this site report the attacker wanted to get stricter gun control in the US. That is a left wing objective. Further, why in the world would someone care what our gun rights are in a country on the other side of the globe? Just like Jussie, this appears another attempt to smear white folks as racists and Islamophobes. Not to mention this took place in Christchurch, lending… Read more »

    Agreed in whole. The manifesto is at times profound and intelligent. But 2 pillars of irrationality stand out. 1) As you said, NZ and the rest of us nations descended from British colonies aren’t in Europe, but themselves involved the horrific squelching of native cultures. That is important to note because he says he doesn’t believe the White race is supreme, but motivated that global diversity must be preserved, which does strike somewhat of a sympathetic chord as we watch globalism destroy traditional ways in every culture. 2) All this violence because he’s a collectivist who specifically hates individualism. That’s… Read more »

    In other words, NZ is low-hanging fruit for terrorists, nut cases and murderous reprobates … easy pickings. I think the currently accepted euphemism is “soft target” or what my generation referred to as “fish in a barrel”.
