1) This disturbing, painful attack on #Christchurch mosques is indeed hard to digest, but it is important not to frame this terrorist attack simply as an act of hate. It is the result of a specific, globally reaching ideology—a growing one that has gone largely undeterred
2) Manifesto allegedly of one of the attackers claims no specific movement, but shows NeoNazi inspiration and echoes attackers like Breivik: talk of “ethnic and cultural genocide,” warnings of “invasion” & “anti-white” forces, Neo Nazi-associated black sun symbol, etc.
3) This isn’t just hate, but an emboldened, hate-driven *movement*. Thus, we cannot productively discuss #NewZealandShooting w/o dissecting the "ethno-nationalist peoples" the attacker claims to represent in his manifesto, and the online networks in which they fester and spread.
