Taking a while for major outlets to cover.

Posted on 8chan, wrote a manifesto, covered his weapons in hate speech, and live streamed the entire thing playing meme music and stating "Subscribe to Pewdiepie".

I'm going to go vomit now.

CNN

Also, be VERY CAREFUL looking more into this story on social media. The video is already all over the place.

Would not recommend.

I know people will downplay the Pewdiepie thing, and I am NOT making a "video games lead to violence" connection here. But he has knowingly amplified white supremacist, fascist, and Nazi-ish sentiments in the past, and that is well-known.


Yeah, kind of felt like I should delete that even though it was really generic description. But that video is genuinely one of the worst things I've ever seen. It was just completely remorseless.

it's kinda like what andrew gillum said about what's his name who's the governor of florida now
something along the lines of i'm not saying he's a white supremacist, i'm just saying that white supremacists think he's a white supremacist

In all reality the subscribe to pewdiepie meme has been one of the more wholesome internet fads in recent times, with only a few examples of people being assholes/malevolent.

With the music and the 8chan poo, if that meme didn't exist I'm sure he would have been saying another one.

That's true, I'm just pointing out that PDP himself is not in any way a "neutral" as far as racism/white supremacy/etc. goes.

"I worked for a short time before making some money investing in Bitconnect, then used the money from the investment to travel. More recently I have been working part time as a kebab removalist. I am just a regular White man, from a regular family. Who decided to take a stand to ensure a future for my people."

This manifesto is...exactly what one would suspect. Mix of the standard white terrorist talking points and pure cult crazies.

The average white man would not literally shoot up a mosque, but think about the attitudes that lead people down that path.
There are people in this country who are still on TV, on major cable channels, who've outright said that being Muslim is tantamount to being un-American.
There are politicians who try to restrict the rights of Muslims for no other reason than their religion. One of the more famous ones literally based his campaign partially on a "total and complete shut-down of Muslims entering the United States" and it wasn't disqualifying for a TON of people.
People have been murdered here just because someone THOUGHT they were Muslim.

Anti-Muslim attitudes are not some tiny fringe thing. White supremacist terrorism is an actual problem, not just worldwide, but here.

Are we talking about having anti-Muslim attitudes or are we talking about walking into a mosque and killing people?

It's not the same thing.

Furthermore, the 'average' white man does not have anti-Muslim attitudes.

Both. My response to you acknowledged the fact that they aren't the same thing, but there is a relationship between the two.

The guy who did the shooting made it political by targeting a mosque and writing an anti-Muslim manifesto.

So they have one sh*tbag in custody, but there might have been more than one?

I mean I'm sorry people think it's somehow improper to discuss the fact that this guy targeted a specific religious group, but the fact is, he did. And the attitudes he held are a drating problem in the US, and one that's gotten a fair amount of attention here lately, what with two Muslim women being elected to Congress and becoming immediate targets of mass amounts of hatred, both from private citizens and from high-profile politicians and media figures. Excuse the drat out of me for pointing out that this just *happened* to happen in NZ and not Minnesota or someplace. This could easily have happened here, and it's about goddamn time we reckoned with the public attitudes that allow people like this to fester and spew their drating poison on innocent people trying to worship and live their lives.

Good grief, those questions don't necessarily mean you're anti-Muslim. But even if you buy that, I see numbers under 50%. I wouldn't call that 'average'.
7 days ago - Friday 3/15/19 - 12:36:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
Literally answering yes to any or all of those questions is anti-Muslim.
