Major terrorist (white supremacist) attack in Christchurch (NZ) [UP6: 4 suspects in custody, 50 confirmed dead] (READ THREADMARKS)

I think the man who attempted to stop the killer actually survived.
One thing I (somewhat) forgot about, is that in Friday Prayer it's almost always a family occasion. Many parents even take their kids out of school for the duration of the prayer. I imagine that a large amount of the people in that Masjid were all family and relatives.

NZ saying gun laws will change. No messing about, direct action.

Take heed America.
The NZ police were warning about lax gun laws in 2016. Should’ve been done years ago.

While Breivik didn't target muslims or immigrants his goal was to shock those in power. And his reasoning and motive was largely the same as with this one.



We have this little thing called the constitution which makes it a bit more difficult.
(1) your constitution sucks arse (2) there are plenty of gun laws that wouldn’t fall afoul of the SC’s shitty interpretation of the 2nd amendment, but they still don’t happen.

I am just sorry for all the victims. Norway endured a similar horror with Breivik, but that 'white gamer attack' had no distinct discriminative motive to the (actual) attack.
What?! Breivik wrote a 1518 page manifesto complaining about cultural marxism, muslims, saving white european culture, etc etc.

there should be a campaign forcing the hand on internet service providers to block reddit until they do something about /pol/, to block Google until it do something about Pewdiepie, also 8chan hosting, and so on... the slap in the hands every time they do something that goes in line with hateful nazi stuff really doesnt help.

how many deads are needed on the next white supremacist attack until they have their recruiting machine blocked?

I believe you probably mean 4chan instead of reddit, if you're referring to /pol/

As for the influencers, while PDP has a lot of viewers, there are influencers who are much worse still spouting their rhetoric to millions.

It’s a coalition of centre-left (Labour), progressive left (Greens), and centre-right (NZ First). And I would hardly call NZ First a “right wing nationalist party”.
The proposal, which was voted on Sunday at New Zealand First's annual conference, would include a commitment to respect freedom of religion, legal sexual preferences, gender equality and the right to consume alcohol.

"They're in our turf now and they've got to respect our rules," one party member told 1 NEWS at the Tauranga conference.

Another added: "Nothing's worse than going into a shop and going to the person behind the counter talking foreign language to you."

The latest right-wing spin is that even though all of this guy's beliefs are conservative, he didn't label himself conservative, so he's a liberal.
My head hurts.

Breivik was a direct inspiration to this shooter
Yeah, unfortunately. I also just read an article about if he had been in contact with breivik, which he apparently hints at in his manifesto, but the prision system says that its very unlikely since they control check every letter.

He wrote a manifesto and targeted the young members of a socialist party who he blamed for the "islamization" of Norway.

He repeatedly aligns himself with communism and fascism alike and (without quoting his manifesto) repeatedly states his dislike for conservatives and Trump. The fact is that the far right and far left are nearly the same ideology - both equally dangerous.

As someone who works in media (tech side) super disappointed in the article that is trying to clearly paint this guy as a victim of circumstance. While yes it’s important to know how he was radicalized, putting up his baby picture juxtaposed with the murders he committed is trying to humanize a very inhuman act that he is 100% responsible for. An absolutely brain-dead approach to this story that doesn’t cover the wider problem of white nationalistic terrorism by trying to paint this person as a someone who was taken advantage of in a vulnerable time as opposed to attacking the ideology.

I must admit that I put this thread on ignore when the details started coming in because I just didn't want to dwell on it and make myself feel worse than I already was at the time. I've realised that such a choice was wholly selfish and all I can really say damn, this is fucking horrifying. The fact that even 1 person (let alone the potential 4) can harbour so so much hatred towards a people that such an evil act is 'fine' to them makes me sick. I can't imagine what the victim's families must be going through right now and the same goes for the Muslims who have to fear potential copycat killings in the future...

This shit makes me angry

The Daily Mail isn't even worth being used as toilet paper. Their Saturday Edition headline proclaims "MASSACRE SHAME OF FACEBOOK" (in regards to Facebook's hosting of the terrorist's live stream) when they themselves had hosted both the video and the manifesto-in-full ASAP after the attack actually happened.

ISPs are powerless; they already tried everything against piratebay without any success.

I caught a ban on Facebook because I pointed out that no one is saying shit like, where is the shooters father, why are white people so savage?

Lol. Whatever.

Thank you Jacinda. A stark contrast to the tired "thoughts and prayers" and "now is not the time to talk politics" deflection of US politicians and commentators.

The now is not the time for politics line is so fucking offensive. It's exactly the time to talk about politics.

I expect an update of the laws in Australia too.

I'd say it's bizarre but I guess I knew the truth.
Some people in this forum are fucking cowards, I wish they'd just admit their views.
Eh there are a lot of humans that are selfish assholes. Don’t get discouraged because there are always good people too. The trick is to ignore and avoid the assholes and find good people to hang with.

Empathy is tough for a lot of people to learn (including myself, I was definitely a selfish asshole when I was younger). And it’s easy to blame others for your own problems. But keep your calm and lead by example and some of them will grow up along the way.

Are you all done tripping over your own dicks to make it seem as if I had somehow meant that Breivik isn't a cunt?

What I meant was (and wrote!) was the actual attack wasn't focused yet. Whereas this one (and others elsewhere) have become so, which you might fucking remember from 1930's Germany (gangs of violence) into the eventual Holocaust by a focused system with the means to do so.

Good lord, some of you really need to learn not everyone is against 'you', whatever that means.

Also, I couldn't care less about any of their supposed motives, much like Mein Kampf is literally unreadable garbage. I would never read any of that crap, because what they DID is what matters, and WHO got killed by it. There is no monument for that manifesto, and there never will be.

I think that anyone who shouts "Subscribe to Pewdiepie!" now should be charged in all honesty, because right now that's probably the scariest phrase you can hear in a crowded place and yelling that is clearly means to incite a panic. It sounds ridiculous but it's a sobering thought to realize.

I bet you we'll have multiple reports of dumb kids screaming that out over the weekend trying to get a rise out of folks. And with it being St. Patrick's day, I can imagine some folks getting hurt by people rightfully panicked that some waste of space is going to open fire on them. Ugh.

Is it possible for a top level domain to reject DNS requests from a local DNS server looking to resolve 8ch's hostname? All the top level domains are owned by ICANN.
I mean even if you got that elaborate they'd just change the name to 12chan and put up mirrors everywhere.

Maybe if you stopped 12chan they'd stop because 16 is too old for them.
