NZ Massacre Manifesto: Planned Years-In-Advance To Prompt U.S. Civil War Over Gun Rights

Excerpts from the posted-online manifesto of the New Zealand mosque mass murderer, include his claims that he planned an attack "roughly two years in advance".

The mass murdering shooter also claimed that he "could have chosen any weapons or means" including arson, explosives, blund instruments, vehicular attacks (incluiding cars, trucks and aircraft) but selected firearms "for the affect [sic] it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they [sic] would provide and the affect [sic] it could have on the politics of United states and thereby the political situation of the world."

"The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state, social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines. With enough pressure the left wing within the United states will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the US will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty. This attempted abolishment of rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the US along cultural and racial lines," the shooter's manifesto wrote.
Excerpts from the question-answer portion of the shooter's manifesto :

____________________________________


how long did you plan this attack?

I begun planning an attack roughly two years in advance and an attack at the location in Christchurch three months in advance.

Why did you choose this time to attack?

The best time to attack was yesterday, the next best time is today. The attack was planned to allow enough time to train, form a plan, settle my affairs, write down my views, then enact the attack.

Why did you choose to use firearms?

I could have chosen any weapons or means.A TATP filled rental van. Household flour, a method of dispersion and an ignition source.A ballpeen hammer and a wooden shield.Gas,fire,vehicular attacks,plane attacks, any means were available. I had the will and I had the resources.

I chose firearms for the affect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the affect it could have on the politics of United states and thereby the political situation of the world.

The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state, social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.

With enough pressure the left wing within the United states will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the US will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty.

This attempted abolishment of rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the US along cultural and racial lines.

from the manifesto posted online :

"Born in Australia to a working class, low income family. My parents are of Scottish, Irish and English stock. "


* Why did you carry out the attack?

"Finally, to create conflict between the two ideologies within the United States on the ownership of firearms in order to further the social, cultural, political and racial divide within the United states.This conflict over the 2nd amendment and the attempted removal of firearms rights will ultimately result in a civil war that will eventually balkanize the US along political, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.

This balkanization of the US will not only result in the racial separation of the people within the United States ensuring the future of the White race on the North American continent, but also ensuring the death of the "melting pot" pipe dream.

Furthermore this balkanization will also reduce the USA's ability to project power globally, and thereby ensure that never again can such a situation as the US involvement in Kosovo ever occur again(where US/NATO forces fought beside muslims and slaughtered Christian Europeans attempting to remove these Islamic occupiers from Europe)."
