The shooter's manifesto suggests he (Brendan Tarrant) is driven by a whit supremacist agenda (surprise surprise) not christian

In his manifesto he is particularly triggered by reported sexual exploitation of a reported 1400 white girls by Pakistani gangs in the UK. https://www.smh.com.au/world/oceania/ch ... 514ko.html

It's relevant that prior to moving to NZ Tarrant spent time in Pakistan which further reinforces his obsession with this region.

His attack on the two mosques isn't completely based on islamophobia as the majority of the 50 + victims are of Indian, Bangladeshi or Pakistani muslim origin. Given he was surveying his intended targets for a couple of months he must have chosen these particular mosques because of the ethnic origin of the devotees.

He had a Zionist, Christian Zionist mindset. He had a US foreign policy mindset and mainstream media mindset. An EDL mindset. An Anders Breivik mindset. Very similar. The obsession with Muslims. Having "Rotherham" written on his gun shows he has some kind of Tommy Robinson who is pictured on an Israeli tank. Katie Hopkins mindset, who is moaning about people showing sympathy to the victims. It's not as simple as 'white supremacy'.

This is Us.

"Many of those who will have been directly affected by this shooting may be migrants to New Zealand, they may even be refugees here. They have chosen to make New Zealand their home, and it is their home.
They are us. The person who has perpetuated this violence against us is not. They have no place in New Zealand."
Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister

Jacinta Arden has mentally evolved, an enlightened mind. We humans need to stop thinking "us" means people who look, sound and act like "us".

Roger Waters from Pink Floyd wrote a song called "Us and Them" back in 1972. The song is about how we humans are constantly fighting each other and separating ourselves into tribes based on an "us vs. them" mentality. The point is that we unnecessarily divide ourselves based on every little thing, concentrate on our differences when choosing friends or deciding who is a member of our silly primitive tribes, and forget to think about all the ways we're all humans and in "this thing" called life on earth together.
