The man who killed 50 in two mosque attacks in New Zealand proclaimed himself to be a socialist eco-fascist and said he hated conservatives, a deeper look into his life reveals.
As the media continues to try and blame conservatives in the U.S. for the mosque killer’s rampage, he proves the lie to that effort with his own words, reports find.
The killer said he identified with historical figures like WWII Italian fascist Benito Mussolini and even wrote that he was glad that “conservatism was dead.”
As WND.com reports:
The suspect, 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, published a 74-page manifesto before killing 49 people and injuring another 20 at the Christchurch mosques.
Tarrant wrote that Sir Oswald Mosley “is the person from history closest to my own beliefs.”
Describing himself as a “racist,” Tarrant state’s he’s not a conservative and could be labeled a socialist, “depending on the definition.”
In another part of his manifesto, the killer admitted that he is “an actual fascist.”
“I am sure the journalists will love that,” he said, adding that he considers himself to be “an Eco-fascist by nature.”
The killer also said that the country that comes closest to his ideal of the perfect system is Communist China.
As to conservatism, the killer wrote about how happy he was that conservatism was “dead.”
As TheAmericanConservative.com writes:
He despises conservatives for having conserved nothing. “Conservatism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it,” he writes. He adds, in all caps, “CONSERVATISM IS DEAD, THANK GOD.” He also despises France’s National Front, or whatever it’s called today. He calls them “milquetoast.” He praises the emergence of Trump as a sign of hope, but mocks Trump too. He says his idea leader is Oswald Mosley, the 20th century British fascist. Point is, the idea that Tarrant has any meaningful connection to the mainstream right is nonsense. The man is true radical.
Despite the media’s effort to claim that this murderer is a member in good standing of the American conservative movement, he himself rejected that appellation and proved to despise conservatism.
But don’t let truth stop the American media from spreading its lies.
The media has spent two days, now, blaming African American conservative activist Candace Owens, Donald Trump, and Breitbart News for the horrendous murders in New Zealand. The only person the liberal media didn’t blame is the shooter himself.
