Over fifty people have been murdered by a far-right terrorist attack, carried out by a white supremacist called: Brenton Harrison Tarrant. He attacked a mosque and a Islamic community center in Christchurch New Zealand. As of 17 March, over fifty have died and another fifty are injured in the hospital. It is ironic that the conservative media does not pay much attention to this far-right terrorist. He is mentioned, but not when you go directly to the American: Fox News website. This is typical of the far-right media network who wish to downplay the fact that Tarrant is a reactionary conservative and like Anders Breivik wanted to start a holy war against Islam!
The killer supported Donald Trump as a ”symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose”, however because the American president is an idiot and incompetent, Tarrant said he rejected Trump as leader of the white race. Like Anders Breivik (killed 69 teenagers in Norway) and Dylann Roof (who murdered 9 black Americans), Brenton Tarrant is a terrorist on the far-right spectrum. A man who believes that the white Caucasian race is under siege. In his hatred of Muslims he did what we feared would happen: A mass murder at a mosque. Fifty are now death, murdered at the hands of a man who’s anti-Muslim bigotry is broadcast each day by the right-wing. They may not call for mass murder, but their racism is what fuels people like Tarrant!
Now the western capitalist media was very quick to denounce him as ”crazy” and ”sick”. Because if a Muslim kills, he must be ”very fundamentalist and committed to Islam”. He is never called sick or deluded. But when a white persons commits a mass murder in the name of western culture, white supremacy and Christianity, he is always denounced by the media as mentally sick. This is done willfully to keep people in the western world brainwashed with the picture of ”Muslims as reactionary terrorists” and ”Western people as enlightened democratic and tolerant”. However the attacks carried out by Breivik, Roof and Tarrant proof that the far-right is willing to use terror as their ideas are more and more becoming mainstream!
92% of all ideologically motivated homicide incidents committed in the United States from 2007 to 2016 were motivated by right-wing extremism or white supremacy. This information comes from the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism in the USA. Far-right murders grew very high due to the election of Barack Obama in 2008 and the election of Donald Trump in 2016. Racists and far-right bigots feel strengthened because of the anti-Muslim climate created by the capitalist media after 9/11. After 1945, it was no longer possible to use antisemitism to divide working class people as the far-right had done. But with the terrorist attacks on the WTC in New York, Muslims became the new Jews!
Today you can hide your hatred of Muslims under a clock of genuine criticism of Islam. Many far-right politicians like Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen and Donald Trump use legitimate criticism as a weapon to limit democratic freedoms of Muslims. Geert Wilders in the Netherlands wants to ban the Koran, close all mosques and arrest all Muslims who have a conservative mentality. These ideas ego what the Nazi’s did to the Jews of Germany in the 1930’s, especially after the Reichskristallnacht. Marine Le Pen is very clear, she does not want Muslims. The leader of the renamed Front National, openly said: ”We don’t want you here” to 8,4 million French Muslims. Trump supported the claim that Obama was a secret Muslim and the fake story of general John J. Pershing killing 49 captured Islamic rebels with pig’s blood, during the Moro rebellion in the Philippines!
