There is a good deal of disturbing information coming out about the Christchurch shooter (yes, we know his name but this editor is choosing not to write it), predominately about his manifesto and his ‘sh*tposts’ on 8chan.

From Bellingcat.com:

But this manifesto is a trap itself, laid for journalists searching for the meaning behind this horrific crime. There is truth in there, and valuable clues to the shooter’s radicalization, but it is buried beneath a great deal of, for lack of a better word, “sh*tposting”.

They continued:

Now there are some things the author truly believes, and those things are not hidden- although they are less obvious than his statements about Candace Owens. For one thing, the shooter repeatedly references Oswald Mosley. Mosley was the founder of the British Union of Fascists, a political party in the 1930s that sought to return England to a state of “autarchy”, or complete financial and cultural independence from the rest of the world. The author’s violent anti-immigrant rhetoric jibes completely with this. Mosley is not an entirely obscure figure, but he is also not a particularly prominent thinker in the 21st-century right wing.

And finally:

Before beginning his bloody spree, the Christchurch shooter- presumably the same person who wrote the manifesto- announced his intentions to 8chan’s /pol/ board. He opened by saying that it is “time to stop sh*tposting and time to make a real-life effort”.

Told you guys, this is some seriously dark and warped stuff.

Good.
