All of these are terrorist incidents.
We have a responsibility to understand how white supremacy + online radicalization works, because it is impacting our entire society.
President Trump defunded Federal programs designed to fight the spread of white supremacist hate groups. https://t.co/7WgC65f5Fp
This is what your Islamophobia brings. This is what your coddling of white supremacy brings. This is what happens when you allow anti-immigrant and anti-refugee sentiments to thrive, when you cower behind “both sides” & your useless centrism...you give power to Nazis. Thanks.
White supremacy is a global enemy and it must be stopped. It is a racist, Islamophobic, antisemitic, and completely deranged ideological view of the world. These people are terrorists and must be treated as such.
Please read all of this ⬇️
The #NewZealandMosqueShooting hits very close to home for American Muslims. Why?
B/c New Zealand Terrorists:
•Admit 45 & American Right Wingers radicalized them
•Used same logos as Charlottsville Nazis
•Cite same white supremacy online hate as do American white supremacists😳
What happened in New Zealand is horrifying. The rise of white supremacy & white nationalism is frightening. World leaders play a role in stoking this hatred. If you are not condemning white supremacy you are condoning it. If POTUS doesn’t condemn, he condones.
I’m sickened by the news coming out of New Zealand—the horrific terrorist attack targeting Muslims at prayer that killed at least 49 people.
The rising tide of white supremacy and Islamophobia around the globe must be met with our determination to work against hate.
We are dealing with angry, disaffected men, mostly White, who find purpose & community with these extremist groups who give them a hero's narrative through violent ideology of White supremacy. They are saving civilization by getting rid of the rest of us. It's like White ISIS 9/
Every single American murdered by extremists in 2018 was murdered by a white supremacist or far right extremist.
Every Single One. 100%
It isn’t too soon to talk about the toxic role of white supremacy in the New Zealand mosque attack.
It’s too late.😓
WE ALL can play a role in recognizing + preventing spread of white supremacy, especially our white friends.
There are lots of community orgs, writers + groups that help people learn to spot white supremacy.
@SURJNYC is one in NYC, but please share others:https://t.co/wTqAi3ggqR
Authorities say the man who opened fire at two mosques in New Zealand, killing dozens of worshippers, was motivated by white supremacy and extremism in the US. If that proves true, many believe that Donald Trump is partly to blame since he is helping to spread hate. Do you agree?
Several Mainstream news outlets are calling the #ChristChurch terrorist “the gunman.”
NO: he’s a terrorist.
His ideology: white supremacy and Islamophobia.
He killed 40 Muslims.
Hateful ideology + violence = terrorism
(Do the math - despite him being white)
New Zealand Prime Minister calls the Christchurch massacre what it is: an act of terrorism motivated by an extremist ideology (white supremacy).
May Allah have mercy on the souls of those who returned to Allah and grant ease to the loved ones they leave behind.
I just saw the whole fucking New Zealand shooting live stream on Twitter... 1.delete any videos out of respect
2. Don’t tell me white supremacy is not a problem, the shooter literally linked a whole ass manifesto “the great replacement” about the decline of white societies
The terrorist in Christchurch considered Mr. Trump a “symbol of renewed white identity.” This president has given license to white supremacy in America that has spread across the world. Is there any question left about the message he’s sending? Racist murderers see him as a hero.
I don’t think people understand. Aotearoa (“New Zealand”) and “Australia” are built off Black and Brown bodies. They are built on white supremacy. This is colonisation. We, the Indigenous peoples of both lands, aren’t surprised about Christchurch.
While we mourn the victims of yesterday’s massacre and try to mitigate any further violence - there is a critical strategic security question: When are we going to have a real conversation, domestically and globally, about the threat of white supremacy?
Trump is a disgusting white supremacist who popularizes hatred and bigotry both at home and abroad. But he didn’t invent white supremacy. He’s just the opportunistic leech who rose to power riding the wave of white supremacy that exists within the hearts and minds of many people.
The massacre at the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, was spawned by white supremacy and hatred of Muslims and immigrants. My heart goes out to the victims of this devastating attack, their families, and the communities affected.
white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is terrorism white supremacy is
Here are 3 ways white allies can help marginalized communities
1. If you witness an act of hate, DON'T be a bystander. DON'T allow it on your watch.
2. Dismantle White supremacy, racism within your own social circles.
3. Pass the Mic. Amplify marginalized voices & listen.
The rise of white supremacy and fascist violence in young white men isn't mental illness or fear, it's the results of a deliberate effort from nazis and white supremacists to infiltrate various communities and using "ironic" nazism and memes to bring people into their ideology
@realDonaldTrump Even in the face of mass murder, you are unwilling to condemn white supremacy. The shooter, your fan, thinks you are “a symbol of renewed white identity.” “Warmest sympathy and best wishes” do not begin to address the hatred you have unleashed.
"[Muslims] have very legitimate fears and they are being told to be afraid by white supremacists and political leaders who believe in white supremacy," CAIR's international executive director and founder Nihad Awad said of the New Zealand mosque attacks https://t.co/lkyzxMemAz
It will take a realignment of priorities for tech companies to snuff out white supremacists seizing on faulty algorithms to incite violence.
Both law enforcement and tech co’s need to treat violent white supremacy for what it is: terror cells taking advantage of the vulnerable.
Why is white supremacy only mentioned in the national discourse AFTER racially motivated terror attacks are carried out like the #NewZealandShooting ?
When some of us warn people years in advance of these white supremacist terrorist threats, we are labeled “race baiters”
'We may never know the why...' that from the mouth of Hilary Barry, who is one of NZ most prominent news reporters.
WE KNOW THE 'WHY': WE ARE A DEEPLY XENOPHOBIC COUNTRY THAT HAS RACISM WOVEN INTO THE VERY FABRIC OF OUR NATIONAL FLAG. WE ARE A COUNTRY BUILT ON WHITE SUPREMACY.
@AOC@SURJNYC What a POS you are!! As if white supremacy is rampant in our country! If you weren’t so dangerous for our democracy, I’d laugh at your ridiculous self. Your own party has dropped the support for you so sit down and SHUT UP!!
White supremacy is the ideology that stole America from indigenous nations before systematic genocide. It filled its newly stolen fields with Black slaves and secured their labor with murder. It filled its coffers with the spoils of foreign dead and showers death on their homes
It’s important to clearly state what the Christchurch Nazi believed because he’s not alone. His idiot islamaphobia, white supremacy and misogynist neurosis about the white birthrate is echoed by people at the highest levels of media and politics
@KhaledBeydoun Which terrorism experts are saying that? Most of the scholars and academics I know are pointing to the manifesto as proof of his intentions, ideology, its connections to US white supremacy, and the environment of Islamophobia.
If “freedom of speech” means allowing nazis, white supremacy advocates, bullies, and liars to say things without consequence then I don’t want it anymore. Something needs to be done. Hate should no longer be allowed. We are better than this.
Get ready for more censorship, more propaganda and more social control. And even less freedom of expression, as everything deemed white supremacy and racist will be shut down. I hope ya’ll have accounts elsewhere and keep in touch 👍🏻 https://t.co/JHfRlpCqNg
But what's f*cked up about today is that you see the same people who normally target folks pretending to act out in solidarity
You know, how about cut out the white supremacy the other 364 days a year. That's the problem. That's the root. That's what puts oxygen into this
@misslaneym Its a Miller Bug. They live in the place a human's soul normally resides. They feed mostly on white supremacy and spray on hair chemicals. Throwing $100 bills at them will cause them to stand up and dance.
."White supremacy normalizes the violence that maintains this status quo while marking those who speak truth back to power as immoral."
How targeting Ilhan Omar instead of white supremacy furthered both anti-Semitism & Islamophobia. https://t.co/cx6ekChp66 via @blackyouthproj
In the aftermath of New Zealand #WhiteISIS slaughter of Muslim men, women, children, we have a sitting president who simply refuses to condemn White Supremacy, whose rhetoric inspires RW terror, and GOP legislators who openly embrace White Supremacy. 1930’s Germany in every way.
