New Zealand mosque attacks

Postby never/ever » 15 Mar 2019, 04:39

It's surreal what is happening in Christchurch at the moment. Two mosques being attacked by lowlife scum with semi-automatic rifles, leaving many dead on the holiest day of the Muslim week. 4 arrests and multiple explosive device defused in several cars....

A horror day for New Zealand.

Awful awful news. Abominable acts by sub-human beings. :(

Please tell me that link doesn't actually show any of the footage. Of all the things I never want to see, ever, that footage is top of the list.

It's just unspeakable. Words just can't convey the sheer horror, tragedy, hatred and stupidity.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Apparently a head cam, broadcast live onto Facebook. And, yes, it certainly did show the killings. I'm not opening that link just in case.

Words fail me. Terrible, terrible acts.

I just simply struggled to believe this could happen in New Zealand, one of the most peaceful, chilled out place you could imagine. Then I read an Australian did it and suddenly I understood completely. Our media and politicians fostered this environment that cretins like this get airtime on Sky News, and don't get called out for the pieces of shit they are, and they grow more empowered and this happens. I'm shattered.

By the way feel free to stop by Fraser Anning's twitter page to call him a complete fuckwit. If even Piers Morgan roasts you for being a horrible person you must be downright evil.

I just looked at that. I can't even imagine Trump stooping that low.

What a sick man.

I've been following the news and wondering what to say here but all I could think to write was "Fuck." So far it seems that 49 are dead and 40 some more are wounded. And there were two mosques attacked. Fuck.

I had wondered what the massacre meant in a political context. Muslims have been getting the brunt of western scorn and violence since 9/11. If you agree that the hysteria drummed up after 9/11 and today's incident are related score one for the Truthers.

I hope they catch all the bastards who are responsible.

You really are a piece of work Jimbo.

Maybe it's age related but I don't like empty sentiment. This isn't a pet dying. ("Oh, too bad.") BCB isn't a funeral home where we sign a book and have a seat. This is a chat board and I come to chat. And I think this massacre wasn't just a murder for money or revenge. This didn't happen in a vacuum? A lot more than 40 Muslims, yeah, specifically Muslims, are being slaughtered by us and our proxies right now in Yemen, Syria, Palestine, Pakistan, Somalia ... Shit is real. And whose actions drove those innocent immigrants all the fuck way to NZ? Consequences, man. Ripples. Acquiescence. Yeah, I'm just typing shit into a computer but I'm thinking, wondering and hoping that all the killing stops, especially killing done by our side.

And attributing the 'wake up' to us all to The Truthers.

My my.

Hey, well done Jimbo & The Truthers.

Feel vindicated now?

Shows how much you really care. (Now, now Jimbo.) And maybe the "truther" remark was a little too face mooshy. I apologize. But that 9/11 wasn't at the root of our current anti-Muslim jihad, nah, I think that is true. Those killers were doing this for us. They thought they were helping. Stupid fucks didn't know we do it for oil money not for a twisted ideal.

The endless hysteria around Muslims is of course nauseous. And it certainly contributes to the wretched 'vindication' of hate killing.

But I found the reference to The Truthers (like it was a badge of vindicated honour) particularly distasteful, Jimbo.

Maybe we should just let it drop.

I can't imagine looking at the video. I mean, it's all I can do just to deal with the reporting. I know a guy with teenage kids who is trying to sort out how to talk to them about it. He's certain that they will have seen it by the time he does.

This is no time for trying to rack up political points.

The Empire State Building is dark. We are very sad, to put it mildly.
