Seems necessary to post this after #ElPaso “America Has A White Nationalist Terrorism Problem. What Should We Do?” Wrote this after ⁦@Morning_Joe⁩ segment in April, problem remains & we’ve done nothing…
Pattern of white supremacist inspired attacks is remarkably similar, but directionally diffferent. Jihadists were top-down driven (Directed, Networked, Inspired) But these domestic attacks are bottom-up (Inspired, now leading to Networked)
now have “ Cascading Terrorism” from domestic extremism, where successful attacks inspire others on verge of violence move forward. #Gilroy followed by #ElPaso. I’m worried today’s attack might touch off others…

Crash course: I teach a paper called 'The Anthropology of Evil' at @Otago. It just got very real. This thread will unpack some ideas from the course in relation to the #ChristchurchTERRORISTattack. Questions, not answers. #anthropology #anthrotwitter #ChristchurchMosqueAttack [1]
When the world is shattered, human meaning-making kicks in fast. We try to 'locate' evil within existing worldviews, including theological, secular, and academic. We collectively ask what/who/where, & WHY?! This gives us the social resources to assign blame, prescribe action. [2]
What is 'evil'? An inherent quality of a person? Their intention/motivation? The action itself? The consequences of the action? Watch how the media and legal system frames this for #ChristchurchTerrorAttack. And what about a white supremacist who has never committed violence? [3]

THREAD to honor those killed in #ChristchurchMosqueAttack
#NewZealandMosqueAttack #NZMosqueShooting
And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive (it) not.
Surah Al-Baqarah, 154
Thank you @KhaledBeydoun & @Abdella6if for documenting lives lost. #RememberTheVictims (Follow them, not me.)
In addition to 50 massacred & martyred, there are 31 injured patients in the hospital. 9 of them are in critical condition.

[Thread] I research #Islamophobia for a living & I can honestly tell you that the views of the gunman in the #ChristChurch #mosqueattack are not & should not be excused as some "fringe" ideology.
I read the 74-page manifesto & the killer's talking points are the same ones I read & hear on the DAILY from mainstream politicians, anti-Muslim figureheads, & the media.
The gunmen was obsessive about white birth rates and fertility like @SteveKingIA & @geertwilderspvv are.

Who is #BrentonTarrant really? #FiveEyes reminds at #Gladio? Inzernational connections in the #ChristChurch #PsyOps via @williamcraddick…
(2) FLORES: #NewZealand's #Christchurch Tragedy - Facts, Patterns, and Pieces Tell a Problematic Story @FortRussNews…
(3) #Christchurch - Why were the videos, showing two additional gunmen removed from social(ist) media? Why the narrative of a "single culprit" if they were additional arrests made by NZ police. Why it was stated that "a 5th suspect" did flee to Israel?

Two stories.
One RE: #ChristchurchMosqueAttack
One RE: #Brexit
30 minutes between them.
They tell us so much more about who we are than the hate we see being spread by the Christchurch terrorist and by Brexit. They cannot undo either. But don’t forget to tell them. [THREAD]
The first story is from my taxi ride to the airport. The taxi driver seems a bit shaken. I ask if he’s ok. He says “yes”, but adds that he’s so sad about the #ChristchurchMosqueAttack. He’s a Muslim. He explains how worried his community is every day. How much fear there is. 2/
Not because of anything specific. But because of all the hate directed at Muslims around the world. Because of exactly the forces that fuelled the Christchurch terrorist’s actions. About the lies and hate. He mentions Trump. 3/

Stellen wir uns mal vor, der serbischstämmige Journalist Ćevapčić vom @ORF oder @biber_mitscharf fährt nach Belgrad auf die Homeparty eines alten Kollegen und Freunds Matuseković.1/
Er weiß ganz genau: sein Freund steht mittlerweile weit rechts und schwadroniert regelmäßig öffentlich von Großserbien. Deshalb hält er ihn "politisch für einen Wirrkopf", aber sie haben halt zur selben Zeit im ORF bzw MQ gehackelt, darum stößt er mit ihm an.2/
Vor Ort ist neben einigen komischen Promis und rechtsextremen Hools auch Fußballkommentator Bekmanov, der jetzt Akkordeon in einer "Gipsy"-Kapelle spielt und singt. Er singt, sagen wir, die serbische Version eines Dylan-Songs.3/

[Thread] As long as people cannot talk about our problems, there will be more retribution. If you dismiss Brenton, there'll be another one eventually. It's worse than tragic.
#brentontarrant #Christchurch #ChristchurchMosqueAttack #ChristchurchShooting
Brenton Tarrant was not a psychopath. He was not born without empathy. There will be more like him, as long as this continues. Why? Because he was traumatised, rocked to his core by what he saw.
When he saw Ebba Akerlund, the partially deaf girl dismembered in the street by a Muslim terrorist attacker's truck, he couldn't ignore it. When he saw Rotherham, he couldn't ignore it.

In #Neuseeland haben mutm. Rechtsextremisten die Freitagsgebete in Moscheen angegriffen. 40 Menschen starben, ein Bombenattentat wurde verhindert. Die Täter verbreiteten das Massaker via Facebook-Livestream.
In sozialen Medien und Foren wie 8Chan huldigen User dem Neonazi. Nicht wenige schreiben, dass sie mehr erschossen hätten oder selber ein Attentat verüben wollen. Das Video des Massakers wird in den Kreisen viral verbreitet.
Sie beziehen sich dabei auf Ideologie der Neuen Rechten und Identitären, die sich einen "Großen Austausch" herbeifantasieren. Die Waffen hatte der Neonazi mit dem Code "14", Kreuzritter-Bezügen beschriftet und rechtsextremen Memes beschriftet.

Horrific. My thoughts are with the people of #Christchurch, especially the victims and their loved ones.

‘I saw dead people everywhere’: multiple casualties in mass shooting at a New Zealand mosque, reports of gunfire at a second mosque and a hospital…
This is pure evil: the #Christchurch gunman filmed the mosque massacres with a helmet cam & posted it to social media.

In his manifesto (linked from 8chan), he identified himself as a 28-year-old man born in Australia & listed his white nationalist heroes
"[The #Christchurch gunman] described what he said had motivated him to carry out the attack, and said he had purposely used guns to stir discord in the United States over the Second Amendment’s provision on the right to bear arms."

This is horrific: A witness says many people have been killed in a mass shooting at a mosque in the #NewZealand city of #Christchurch.… h/t @rerutled
It is Friday and if the #Christchurch Al Noor mosque shooting happened during Friday congregational prayers, then it would be full of worshippers. Len Peneha says he saw a man dressed in black enter and then heard dozens of shots, followed by people running from mosque in terror.
An eyewitness inside the mosque says he heard shots fired and says at four people were lying on the ground and "there was blood everywhere".… #Christchurch
