Skip to comments.New Zealand shooter, QAnon fans get their radicalization from the exact same place
Posted on 03/18/2019 2:55:58 PM PDT by MNDude
even though theres no evidence that the shooter is a Q believer, the radical anti-immigrant rhetoric of the shooter matches up perfectly with the fascistic beliefs of QAnon. For one thing, the manifesto is strikingly similar to the recently published QAnon book in its tone and style, as both are full of long rambling digressions and personal grievances, often backed up by Wikipedia citations.
QAnon is part of this radicalization, with its believers espousing end-of-the-world fantasies about shooting looters, hanging the Clintons, and scooping up their enemies in ad hoc trials. All the while, Twitter and Facebook allow it to continue with little moderation. And several times these fantasies have spilled into real-life, in the form of murder, arson, and police standoffs. Ultimately, the major tech companies could prevent another Christchurch by removing, banning, or deplatforming many of the worst offenders spreading the messages and incitements to violence racist violence. This includes the QAnon conspiracy. And that could be the biggest reason of all that Q believers want so badly to latch on to this horrific crime. Some of them want to get away with it too.

Maybe Brenton Tarrant is Qanon ...
In before this thread is zotted.
(Now, where’s my popcorn?)
What do you figure the odds that Mr. Rothschild knows what copypasta is?
I see that you have no problem printing crap and lies as long as it fits your narrative. You also know the rules about where you can post this kind of crap. But that does not matter to you. Typical deceiving Liberal.
What lies and crap is that.
Dont you want to know what the left believes should be done with differing view points?
You also seem to have great love for the Rothschild’s. So aren’t you in the wrong place?
That is right people. This article is by the America hating Mike Rothschild. Don’t miss that fact.
The shooter was a typical leftist racist.
Mr. Rothschild sounds scared.
“Dont you want to know what the left believes should be done with differing view points?”
Yeah I bet that you can’t wait to start posting stuff from Donna Brazile at fox news.
This is not a differing viewpoint. It is lies and propaganda. It is a hit piece with no regard for the truth at all.
That’s my point.
I guess I could have written “barf alert” in the title, but I wanted to just present what is being proposed by the left at face value.
Rothschild is advocating any reference to what he considers conspiracies to be censored by the tech giants, and that there should be no alternative forms of platform.
Just think, you could not question Smollet under his guidelines. Not on Twitter, not on 8 Chan because it it were up to him, there would be no such place.
Yes, the Internet.
This is a really silly idea.
The Black Panthers said “kill your parents”.
It is sophistry to pin “extremism” on “the right”.
“even though there’s no evidence that the shooter is a Q believer, the radical anti-immigrant rhetoric of the shooter matches up perfectly with the fascistic beliefs of QAnon.”
He also wrote in English. That must prove something, too.
All of these ridiculous speculations tied to outlandish accusations are not just irritating, they are infuriating.
The left’s knee-jerk reaction to any catastrophic event is to demand more leftism, even when leftist views turn out to be the cause.
They call for banning weapons and speech.
Leftist should not be allowed to own guns. They should not be able to vote or have free speech. Ban leftists.
Oh, and he MAY have been inspired by CNN.
He posted his shooting live on Facebook, don’t see anybody for banning FB.
“espousing end-of-the-world fantasies about shooting looters, “
So the world ended 50+ years ago? This is an alternate reality?
“He posted his shooting live on Facebook, dont see anybody for banning FB.”
And he posted images of all the weapons he used on Twitter before the attack.
And I heard he had a goggle youtube account too.
Anyone who thinks that Q or the people who follow Q would support this kind of event are like Nazi’s calling the Jews Evil.
