Why the New Zealand mass murder is a United States Terror Problem?

New Zealand tourism means unmatched beauty, adventurous, filled with eclectic animals, people concerned about the environment, and lots of sheep.

This country was attacked twice yesterday by a white terrorist killing 49+ innocent people while they were worshipping in a mosque.

The New Zealand shooter called Donald Trump ‘a symbol of white identity’ as he murdered 49 people. He will be indicted for mass murder in a New Zealand court Saturday.

The attack puts the United States is very much in the center point for a motive the killer had to commit this mass murder in peaceful New Zealand.

Despite its being on the far side of the world from the hotbeds of white nationalism, the double terror attack by a white supremacist showed that no nation is safe from the destructive power of murderous white radicals.

The result is a minimum of 49 people dead. Islamic organizations around the world are condemning the attack together with the Pope and leaders from around the globe.

Michelle and I send our condolences to the people of New Zealand. We grieve with you and the Muslim community. All of us must stand against hatred in all its forms,” the former president tweeted. This was a tweet by former US president Obama.

In a manifesto posted to social media (deliberately not linked), the New Zealand shooter frames his motivations around “replacement”—the same term invoked by the Nazi marchers at Charlottesville that Trump described as “good people.” The shooter went on to call immigration “white genocide.”

Despite the location of the shooting, the United States is at the center of the manifesto. The shooter spends a great deal of his 74 pages talking about “threats to the electoral college” and his desire to “end the melting pot” by “balkanizing” the United States “along political, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.” In his rant, he repeats phrases and themes from both Trump and American white nationalists, focusing on the Second Amendment as a primary divide in American culture. The shooter also throws out other familiar right-wing phrases, from his concern that  “taxation is theft” to his discussion of “demographic change” in Texas that will lead whites to start a civil war.

The shooters phrase on dividing the U.S. along racial lines reoccurs repeatedly in the manifesto. The shooter states that he deliberately chose to use firearms rather than bombs specifically to create more anger over gun violence in hopes of spurring the fight over the Second Amendment and driving a wedge through America.
