Yes he does, right before going into the mosque.....
Yes, because fascism at the end of the day is a stupid and unsustainable philosophy that will inevitably destroy itself whenever it becomes too powerful.
How? That's next to impossible even for citizens
I understand where you're coming from but I don't agree. Pretending it's not happening isn't appropriate. It's the biggest news story in the world right now so the news should be covering it.
Not that racism, bigotry, or murder make sense in the first place, but the idea that we Americans would respond to his actions by banning guns is beyond crazy given how nothing has changed after tons of massacres on our own soil.In his manifesto he jokes about how Spyro 3 taught him ethno-nationalism and said his goal (aside from killing Muslims) is to inflame the gun debate in the US with the hope that liberals will ban guns, causing civil war and the collapse of the US, with the assumption that it will lead to the awakening of white Americans to white nationalism.
It's a joke of the "edgy teenager" variety.I may be mis-reading his Tweet (and I have no idea who he is), but I think he means he's not sure whether it's still March 14 (is that Pi day?) in New Zealand right now?
I don't think he was making a joke/being insensitive, he was just pointing out that it's actually March 15 here right now.
If it is a joke then fuck him. I probably mis-read the Tweet since everyone seems to be upset by it (sorry if that's the case) :(
It destroys itself only to take on another form.
that's the very, very, very least someone in his position could do. he could also stop the bullshit subscription war. would have thought it stoking anti indian sentiment in his fan base would have been enough to do that then. and he's certainly going to have to do more than just throw money at the problem.
It's amazing how these people don't realize that they've created and fostered this shit so of course impressionable kids that are lost in a sea of nihilism will, you know, actually take it seriously.Hm... On 8chan, the board owner of /v/ is strongly disturbed by the people cheering on the shooter (parts of what he said: "WHAT THE FUCK MAN? Fucking [redacted], it was meant to be a fucking larp. A FUCKING LARP. You don't fucking kill people and fucking joke about it you mentally ill fuck. What a fucking retarded psychopath. . . . Yes we make jokes about Hitler and Jews and Blacks, but it's the same shit as the satan shit in the 70's. No one deserves to die, because of their race, religion or their genitals.") and is getting mocked by a lot of people as a result.
It would seem that at least some people over there did not think that this whole hateful nonsense was serious. But the vast majority of the site is in favor of the shooter. If 8chan doesn't get shut down, it's very well possible that the non-serious "memey" users will simply leave, and the site will become even more vile than it already is...
edit: Missed an offensive swear there. Removed it.
What the actual f*ck is going on in this world?Shooter livestreamed his attack and before he started, he said "subscribe to PewDiePie."
The rest is bullshit he wants spread, so its best if you just ignore it. All you should care about is that a racist waste of space, potentially two, attacked a mosque and killed folks who were praying.
Wait what?! I thought it was him winking and nodding to his white supremacist followers. But to actually tweet the news of this attack through nothing more than a link to fucking Breitbert? This motherfucker is emboldened. Doesn’t even attempt the fake “thoughts and prayers” garabage he usually does.
Did you really just both sides this?Yes this world has always been terrible but the internet has made things worse. I hate to say this but todays events have no doubt inspired another person to continue "the work" or whatever they want to call this. And this will also probably inspire someone to retaliate against white supremacists, but they will probably kill more innocents.
My point is I don't see an end to the violence. There will always be another KKK, or ISIS, or Taliban, or whatever new group rises up. Every race has their hate groups and although they are the minority strictly by the numbers, they take up the headlines and attention the majority of the time.
If people could just learn to accept and respect other people's faith, beliefs, and ideals then maybe, just maybe this world could be better. I truly believe that the world can be a better and more productive world when we aren't trying to destroy each other.
As far as I can tell they are just links to the home page of Breitbart, which has this as it's lead story.
Storm as in Stormfront.
I hang around these circles often. I believe that a few of them really do not think that this is serious, but that this is all a big "meme", and that allows them to be part of a community and say outrageous garbage. But by "a few" I mean "one in a thousand". As I said, everyone in that /v/ thread is mocking the board owner for ever thinking that the community was not serious about insulting and hurting people. They are inhuman sociopaths and their whole self-identification rests upon that, so they're proud of it.
Its both apparently. Its the breitbart homepage but the top story covering it is the NZ shooting.Wait what?! I thought it was him winking and nodding to his white supremacist followers. But to actually tweet the news of this attack through nothing more than a link to fucking Breitbert? This motherfucker is emboldened. Doesn’t even attempt the fake “thoughts and prayers” garabage he usually does.
CNN isn’t live right now. They prolly don’t have the cast on hand to go live. All I’m saying is reporting it and moving on is the best way forward. Even in this thread people are talking about his manifesto etc etcI understand where you're coming from but I don't agree. Pretending it's not happening isn't appropriate. It's the biggest news story in the world right now so the news should be covering it.
These shootings won't stop if CNN stops reporting on them. The internet has changed that. This specific shooting is the perfect example of that.
I have no answer for you. Someone travelling here is not going to legally possess a firearm and that its very difficult to own one even if you were born here.
100 percent. I heard some kind of civil war marching song playing as well at the start of it. I think he was carrying a speaker with him
Wow, that reads like a horribly insensitive joke. I did a double take.
