New Zealand mosques' attack suspect praised Trump in manifesto - AJ

The Australian-born suspect who shot dead dozens of Muslim worshippers in Christchurch, New Zealand, has published a manifesto praising US President Donald Trump and Anders Breivik, the Norwegian white supremacist who murdered 77 people in Norway in 2011.

The 74-page dossier, which has been described by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison as a "work of hate", hailed Trump as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".

Also in the manifesto --one of the CA Cohort of Petty Landlords was quick to point out-- is African American blogger named Candace Owens who epitomizes his idea of deviants.

Over here is a rambling indictment of New Zealand's intelligence agencies looking in all the wrong places which epitomize her idea of "the innocent."

Over there I'm still reading how so-called experts struggle to exculpate common frauds in US higher education as if this behavior were "unethical", that is, thoughtless or accidental, and not a patented demonstration of ethos binding this society.

But anyone of us could run a list of the violence, the "terrorism," publicized this very day in our own towns and cities that defies the enemy countenanced by "moral leadership" (Can you imagine that there is such a profession?) of the day. Paradox abounds. The people of planet "progress" are disoriented without coin to point the way.

Let us note: Every time these crimes occur, the reporter will find someone to say how surprised they are; he or she seemed like a nice guy, so quiet, friendly, or diligent at work.

o, look. Isn't everyone keeping up with worldwide box office sales of the MOST IMPORTANT monument of diversity in our time (since Wakanda in the Hurt Locker)?

Trump downplays white nationalism threat after massacre; doesn't see it as a threat - AP
Trump, whose own previous responses to the movement have drawn scrutiny, expressed sympathy for the victims who died at "places of worship turned into scenes of evil killing." But he declined to join expressions of mounting concern about white nationalism, When asked whether he thought it was a rising threat around the world, he responded, "I don't really."

"I think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess," Trump said. "If you look at what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that's the case. I don't know enough about it yet. But it's certainly a terrible thing."

March appears to the month to read the wikiwtf synopsis of 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, without Cliff's or Spaek's Notes compendia for any Greek comedy or tragedy (I strongly recommend Clytemnestra), from which to glean clues to "white" supremacist adoration of Trump, fame (not the movie), possibly material historicism, but not likely.

oops. There's two more true inspirations!
Tears For Christchurch: Australia First Imported Hate In 1788. Now We're In The Export Business
When Anders Behring Breivik massacred 76 people in Norway in 2011 - a person whom Brenton Tarrant listed in his rambling, unhinged 73-page manifesto as his "true inspiration" - Breivik praised Australian conservatives like Keith Windschuttle, an historian who flatly denied that significant massacres occurred in Tasmania in the 1800s.

New Zealand to Probe Role[s] of Spies, Guns in Mosque Attacks
Her Cabinet had previously agreed on holding an inquiry, but had not decided what level of investigation. She said royal [?] commissions are usually reserved for matters of the gravest public importance and that was clearly appropriate in this case. She said the exact terms of the inquiry, including its duration, would be finalized over the next two weeks.
She said those agencies will include the country's domestic spy agency, the Security Intelligence Service, and its international counterpart, the Government Communications Security Bureau.
If New Zealand has secrets worth stealing, then they're worth protecting.
Other agencies to be looked at include police, customs and immigration.

A royal commission is run independently from the government and is chaired by a high-court judge. It has the power to compel witnesses to testify and organizations to hand over documents. But it remains up to the courts or government to follow through on any recommendations or findings.

If New Zealand has secrets worth stealing, then they're worth protecting.

Erratum :
read "had", and "they'd be".

The main secrets traditionally protected by NZ's Security Intelligence Service are

  1. that there are no secrets worth protecting
  2. that they waste their budget bothering leftists.

'Lone wolf' myth covers up possible Mossad role in New Zealand terrorist attack
Incredibly, a stone structure of a building collapsed onto a van during the earthquake which killed a man inside who turned out to be an Israeli national. His death accidentally unearthed a ring of Mossad agents [2011]
The newspaper said it had asked Prime Minister John Key repeatedly to confirm details of an SIS investigation into whether the Israeli secret service had infiltrated the police national computer.

Mr Key responded that he was satisfied there had been no misuse of the police computer - but he refused to say whether an investigation had been carried out by the security service because it was not in the national interest.

after the man was discovered with multiple fake passports and USB flash drives which contained confidential data believed to have been illegally downloaded from the New Zealand police's national computer system.

Before mosque attacks, New Zealand failed to record hate crimes for years
Joris De Bres, New Zealand's Race Relations Commissioner between 2002 and 2013, said he was alarmed at signs of an uptick in threats against Muslims when he took up the role soon after the 9/11 attacks in the United States.

De Bres said he repeatedly asked the government and police to create a central system for recording details about crimes motivated by hatred and racism.

He raised the issue with the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which in its 2007 review of New Zealand said the lack of records was a concern, and asked the government to collect data on complaints of racially motivated crimes.

"I listed it every year...I wrote at various points to government about it and it was simply said that it wasn't necessary and it wasn't a priority," De Bres said.
When current Justice and Intelligence Services Minister Andrew Little took office in late 2017, the Human Rights Commission said in their incoming briefing the country needed a central system for recording details about crimes motivated by hatred and racism and steps currently taken by police were insufficient.
