A shooter killed dozens of people in a New Zealand mosque and left behind a manifesto that endorsed a variety of causes on both sides of the political aisle.
While many questions remain to be answered about this horrific act of violence, the only thing that’s clear is that the shooter was mentally disturbed.
Trump himself took to Twitter to say about the shooting, “My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the mosques. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!”
That doesn’t stop liberals and Democratic/Socialist in our country to attack him!
But it turns out that the shooter wasn’t Trump’s biggest fan!
Describing himself as an “eco-fascist” and expressing a deep respect for Communist China, Brenton Tarrant wrote that “conservatism is corporatism in disguise. I want no part of it.”
Infowars.com reports: “Conservatism is dead, thank god,” he also wrote, bemoaning the fact that conservatives did not see everything through the lens of race.
Describing the arc of his political journey, the killer said, “When I was young I was a communist, then an anarchist and finally a libertarian before coming to be an eco-fascist.”
Tarrant also wrote that he considered himself an “eco-fascist by nature.”
He also expressed admiration for Communist China.
Tarrant also disavowed President Trump from the standpoint of his policies and decisions, answering the question, “Were/are you a supporter of Donald Trump” with the words, “Dear god no.”
Tarrant was clearly an alt-right racist who despised both liberals and mainstream conservatives. His political positions occupied both fringes of the extreme right and left.
His condemnation for mainstream conservatives, whom he dismissed as “milquetoast civic nationalist boomers” clearly illustrates how the media’s attempt to smear people like Candace Owens as being complicit in the attack is absurd and dishonest.
