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]

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.

1) Update on the #ChristchurchMosqueShootings.

I am going to leave my original thread intact, and I want to add new info I learned today.

Maybe I am slow, but I was not aware there were 2 confirmed shooting locations. This is the 2nd location. #QAnon

2) It matches the look of the location in the video that did not match the location of the first shooting, the green carpet location.

I'm not sure it was my fault, or it was the lack of information, but he shooter visited 2 mosques, I was not aware. #QAnon
3) Footage from the 2nd mosque is what was shown in the "aftermath" video.

I just wanted to set my personal record straight, in that there is now a plausible explanation for why these 2 videos looked nothing like one and other. #QAnon

“Anti-Muslim rhetoric has been normalized by mainstream right-wing news outlets, many of which are owned by billionaire Rupert Murdoch.” washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pac… #ChristchurchMosqueShootings
#Australia has history of far-right groups that have targeted immigrants & minorities. From start of 20th C, it adopted policies designed to exclude immigrants of non-Euro origin. These measures, known collectively as White Australia policy, were fully abandoned only in 1973.
In mid-90s,far-right political parties e.g.Pauline Hanson’s One Nation were able to draw on antiimmigrant sentiment vs Asians to gain foothold in national politics. In recent yrs,One Nation & other rightwing groups have gained political relevance by pivoting to Muslim immigration
