The New Zealand mosque shooter created a manifesto that is being labeled as right-wing, however this does not seem to be the case. Breitbart News lays out portions of this individuals manifesto that establishes he does not agree with either the left nor the right. But he does agree with big Socialist government like the left and describes himself as a Socialist. This is because he identifies like a Hitler Socialist who views racial superiority.
The Shooter claimed he used a Gun for the shooting in order to cause tension within the United States in hopes to spark a civil war over gun rights. And he even praised the fact he believed ‘Conservatism is dead.’ However, that is not true Conservatism is thriving and rejuvenating in the United States since 2010.
Breitbart News wrote, “Yet elsewhere in the document, the shooter describes himself as a socialist, “depending on the definition.” The shooter also declares his support for “environmentalism,” “worker’s rights,” and “responsible markets.””
Breitbart News continued, “On the one hand, the manifesto presents the political left as an enemy that conducted a “march through the institutions” and describes Antifa, communists, and Marxists as “anti-white scum.” Elsewhere, the shooter writes that “under some definitions,” he is both on the right and the left.”
The shooter wrote that he does not identify with Conservatives and praised he believed it was dead.
Breitbart News: “Elsewhere, the shooter disparages conservatism and declines to identify with it, writing that “conservatism is dead, thank god,” and calling it “corporatism in disguise.” Conservatives, he says, “don’t even believe in the race, they don’t have the gall to say race exists” and “don’t even care if it does.””
Breitbart News: Shooter wrote, “The notion of a racial future or destiny is as foreign to them as social responsibilities.”
The shooter was hoping to start a civil war within the United States by triggering the left to make a gun grab after his shooting.
Breitbart News: “At three points in his manifesto, the shooter also states his intention to spark a civil war in the United States by triggering crackdowns on the Second Amendment. In his laundry list of motivations, the shooter spends the most amount of time discussing this goal, which he believes will ultimately lead to a “fracturing” of the U.S. along “cultural and racial lines.””
Breitbart News: “As he describes it, his attack will “Create conflict between the two ideologies within the United States on the ownership of firearms in order to further the social, cultural, political, and racial divide within the United States.””
The shooter wrote, “This conflict over the 2nd amendment and the attempted removal of firearms rights will eventually result in a civil war that will Balkanize the U.S. along political, cultural, and most importantly racial lines.”
Breitbart News: “Elsewhere in the manifesto, the shooter predicts that his attack will lead to “calls for the removal of gun rights from whites in the United States… that is the plan all along.””
Breitbart News: “While the shooter lists a number of highly lethal methods he might have used to carry out the act of terrorism, he states that he chose firearms “for the effect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the effect it would have on the politics of the United States and thereby the political situation of the world.””
Shooter wrote, “With enough pressure the left wing within the United States will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the U.S. will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty. The attempted abolishment of rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the U.S. along cultural and racial lines.”
