Default Shootings in Mosques in NZ

https://i.stuff.co.nz/national/11131...tchurch-mosque

Active situation in the city I live in. Utterly horrible.

Done by nazi/white nationalist types. One of the evil fuckers livestreamed the attack. I'm horrified.

40 confirmed dead.

The city is in shock.

Most people here are still pretty raw from the 2011 quake. I know that's 8 years ago now but for most it's never far below the surface.

At least that was just the planet wobbling. Deliberate hate-fuelled mass murder is more horrific.

This is horrifying. My heart goes out to everyone affected.

This Twitter thread, from a Muslim mother in the United States reacting to the shootings, is well worth the read, though it's chilling and may merit a warning for survivors of gun violence:

Thread by @GoodwinVianna: "While you're still horrified by the mosque shooting, I'm going to share something I don't normally share. Because tomorrow, it won't be so f […]"

Sky New Zealand pulls Sky News Australia off air over Christchurch massacre coverage | Media | The Guardian

Murdoch's channel won't stop broadcasting the livestream murders, Kiwis kick his ass off the air.

YouTube is known for this connection.
More on PewDiePie, though warning: link includes pre-violence clip of video.
The mass murderer also praised in his manifesto Trump and Candace Owens, each just as skilled a promoter of dehumanizing Muslims as the rest of those mentioned above.
Already all of these individuals dismiss their culpability and distance themselves from the murderers praising and listening and following and supporting them.
And speaking of those who dehumanize Muslims and those who murder civilians:
At least 46 civilians claimed dead in alleged 'massacre' at Syrian mosque hit by U.S. drone
U.S. Strikes Killed Nearly 500 Civilians in 2017, Pentagon Says
Hidden toll of US drone strikes in Yemen: Nearly a third of deaths are civilians, not al-Qaida.
As said elsewhere, fascists murder Muslims with assault weapons in mosques, neoliberals and neoconservatives murder Muslims with drone bombs on mosques.
