1/ The Hunt For Red October: a #qanon read.
2/ The Hunt For Red October is one of #qanon's trademark signatures that he put at the end of his posts. Like Godfather III and Speed we're meant to figure out the key concept in the movie and relate it to what he's saying.

My Speed decode is here:…
3/ THFRO appears only at the end of this particular post. Actually it's two posts but they are meant to be read as one.

I noticed something about this post the other day for the first time: it's in sonata form.

Tarrant's inspiration 👇 (Thread)

1 (of 15) Tarrant’s manifesto (pp 74) is clearly modelled on Anders Breivik's (pp 1,500) – all very tedious and familiar.

2. They’re vomits of personal, narcissistic, paranoid, hysterical efforts of soul-searching.

Psychotic, xenophobic and Islamophobic, they’re autobiographical and ideological mash-ups. Don't look for cryptic codes; they're schizophrenic confusions.

@DMRDynamics @SethN12
3. They take from what politicians and governments, quasi-intellectuals and media have opined openly for decades. My French colleague has long called France ‘the main Western laboratory for Islamophobia’.

Evidence indicates he's onto something. 🇫🇷

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.

In the immediate aftermath of the white nationalist terror attack in Christchurch, NZ, a variety of #FalseFlag conspiracy theories regarding the shootings began circulating on social media.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
We downloaded tweets containing #NewZealand/"New Zealand"/#NewZealandShooting/#NZMosqueShooting and #FalseFlag/"false flag"/#DeepState/"deep state"/#CrisisActor/"crisis actor"/staged/"doesn't add up"/#QAnon in the body of the tweet (as opposed to linked article titles etc.)
This yielded 5329 tweets from 4592 accounts. We then classified the 50 most frequently retweeted accounts into those which promote conspiracy theories about the attack and those which do not. Most of the early tweets are of the conspiracy-pushing ilk; #QAnon turns up frequently.

Sikh temples.
#WhiteNationalist killers are and have been the problem.

Trump says they are not, but what was being chanted in ##Charlottesville? "Jews will not replace us."
Trump called those men "very fine people."

Resist the hate.
These two photos embody why #WhiteNationalism is such a threat.

#NewZealandMosqueAttack headline today.

#Charlottesville killing by #WhiteSupremacist.
Hate was the weapon.

So, David Parker, the Attorney General of New Zealand, just announced the country will ban semi-automatic rifles in the wake of #NZMosqueShooting.

Just like that.

My god, I wonder what it's like to live in a country that has leaders with common sense.
This is such a weird feeling of jealousy and happiness I'm experiencing.
Also, this is especially making me grateful for the work of @shannonrwatts, @MomsDemand, @Everytown, and others for their tireless advocacy under a government that simply doesn't care.

The #NZMosqueShooting terrorist appears to have a liking for Edward Codrington, a British admiral who fought in the Greek War of Independence, and Ernst Rudiger von Starhemberg, an Austrian fascist, influential in the 1930s, who later died in Argentina.
The terrorist also admires Marco Antonio Bragadin, a Venetian general of the 15th century, who fought against the Ottoman Empire. Go figure... quite a pseudo-intellectual, Breivik narrative here.
Sorry, 16th century

We all seriously out here shocked to learn Candace Owens is trash? Wut.

It took her LOLing over #NewZealandShooting for you to realize this?

Vague. Root your arguments in the reading itself, rather than projecting your interpretations on the text. Unsupported claims. Lack of clarity. Proofread before submission.

Sometimes you have to give responses the credit they deserve.
Thanks, Randy ‘Definitely Not A Bot’ Jo. 37907305.

That’s very sound advice.

This is another example of the white supremacist strategy to dilute the unique history and legacy of racial slavery in America and the Caribbean. Racists use the Barbary slave trade in a similar way to how Neo-Nazis use Dresden.
False equivalence and an endless dishonest minimisation are characteristics of both Racial slavery denialism and Holocaust denialism. The system of racialised perpetual hereditary chattel slavery that was developed in the New World by Europeans has no equivalent in history.
As Barbadian historian Hilary Beckles has explained, it “was a moral and legal break from any African or European tradition of labour. It constituted, furthermore, the most dehumanising, violent, socially regressive form of human exploitation known to humankind”.
