    While we recoil in the horror of watching the shooter go about his terrible business coldly slaughtering those innocents, I’m mindful too of all those innocents slaughtered by jihadis we have seen over the years. In concerts, in schools, while going about their business, walking over a bridge, walking along the Cote D’Azur foreshore, watching a marathon and in the Twin Towers. 49 odd dead innocents is a horrific toll and in this war taking place in the west there will be more.

    One very sad observation I’m forced to make is that many of the memes posted by Tarrant in his “manifesto” have, over the years I’ve been reading it, appeared over and over again on this blog.
    Violence is a continuum.
    It has, at one end, bigotry and stereotyping, and at the other, what we saw in Christchurch today

    It has at both ends.

    The Tarrant guy’s statements are a total grab bag from which you could pick anything.

    Eco-catastrophism, for one.

    There has been a lot of emotional crap said about NZ.

    This is multiculturalism playing out. In Australia we have been endlessly turning the other cheek. In New Zealand some lunatic decided to get one in first.

    What else will happen when you shove two grossly incompatible cultures into the one patch of dirt? Isn’t this the engine room of violence in the ME?

    This will continue on steadily ramping up until the numbers are sufficient on both sides for a full blown civil war.

    Of course taking up arms against The Incompatibles that took up the invitation is just stupid. Who handed out the invitations in the first place?

    The Western world is currently suffering a severe case of “Chamberlaism”.

    Neville Chamberlain had no choice. Popular opinion in Britain was bitterly anti – war, the British Army wasn’t equipped to fight a land war on the Continent, the Royal Air Force was approaching obsolescence, and Chamberlain genuinely believed that no body in their right mind could ever contemplate another war.

    The Christchurch I left 30 years ago was smart and well-off.
    Well dressed people, beautiful old buildings mixed with interesting modern designs unique to the place.
    Lots of old cars for sure, but reallly good public transport.
    Stunning scenery of course. There was squalor if you went looking for it, but not so bad.
    The Christchurch of today is broken and ruined right through.
    The ruble from the earthquake and damaged buildings are still there.
    Many, many poor people lounging around the streets during the day. Jobless, dirty and unhappy.
    The dairies – “milkbars” and fish and chip shops on every second corner aren’t the friendly little locally owned places they were. They are owned by rich immigrants who don’t need the income, but they do need the visa that owning a small business gives them.
    Christchurch always had a nasty side.
    But it was never bleak and shabby and full of angry poor people. It is now.

  12. Black Ball

    Zulu Kilo Two Alpha thank God for Churchill. He understood the menace that Hitler posed. You are correct in that Britain had an anti war feeling after the Great War. But when push came to shove, he had no alternative. To acquiesce the enemy is to dance with the devil.

    I raised a family there, contributed as best l could to the community and was rewarded with the pleasure of living in one of the best parts of the best part of Australia, and still live on the north coast.
    l wasn’t a local and would never be.
    Funny my children are locals by dint of birth.
    The roots-to-the-water table locals are so insular, most of them wouldn’t know where NZ is. Or Sydney for that matter.
    Some of them have a clue that you’ll hit Brisbane if you turn Left at South Grafton and keep going.

    On reflection, going back to the cause of this conversation, l would be surprised that if the perpetrator was from Grafton that he would be any sort of master criminal global terrorist Hellman.
    I will run with him being a fuckwit and a clown.

  14. Steve trickler

    I was at work today, when one of my work colleagues walked up with his phone and showed the Facebook live stream from Christchurch. We all stopped and watched. It shocked and changed the mood for the the day.

    Meanwhile, down the road, a gathering of heavily armed WAPOL were in attendance for a reason i do not know.

    I think we were about 20 minutes ahead of them in regards to watching the footage. They were all in groups being humans and smiling …. going about their work day. Talking among themselves. Oblivious to the events that had transpired.

    Later, it was them gathered around a colleagues phone watching what we’ve have just watched.

    The body language change was noteworthy.

    He’s a Green left wing violent racist.
    Although Islam is not a race, he is concerned for the plight of white people, therefore classifying others as an enemy of his race.

  21. MatrixTransform

    Is it wrong for me to say I have almost zero sympathy for what happened in New Zealand? Islamic hatred of the West has been around for decades.

    BB, my sentiments exactly!
    Brave you are to say so too … normally I’d keep my gob shut but, yeah I’m with you … I simply dont care

    The bloke with the manifesto is barely 8 years older than the permanent media fiasco that reports worldwide daily depravity for profit.

    for about 20 years Ive listened almost daily accounts of the murderous fanatical and Ive become pretty numb to it.

    To be honest Im surprised it took this long.

    good luck getting that genie back in the bottle … Kipling’s poem in the psycho’s manifesto didn’t surprise me at all

    and ScoMo can go fuck himself … when a measured level response is required the man postures and preens.

    When Scott Morrison said to hug each other, the young electrician was here-tall, in his workman’s boots even taller, with a gorgeous moustache, looks like he’d stepped from a scene of the Three Musketeers except in tradie clobber, very huggable – but I thought better of it ’cause his Mum and Dad are our good friends. Was tempted though.

But really, the University educated accuser (whom you can identify given she has leaked enough info about him) could have raped the dead choir boy and be wanting to exorcise his demons.

    I don’t find your display of horror or emotion very interesting. For the women it might be unavoidable, but for men it’s shameful.

    You may very well only have emotions towards your cigar, but this man IS horrified at the actions of another human being in shooting unarmed men, women and children.

    Did you also take such a cold look at the Las Vegas killings, and not be horrified by that too?
    Was your clinical analysis of the numerous Islamic attacks also characterised by “interest only” and having no value judgements about the perpetrators?

    You seem to be devoid of any humanity.

  28. MatrixTransform

    For fucks sake. Anyone who revels in innocent women and children dying for a political point deserves a pit in hell.

    Right, this is where it starts to shits me … the stupidity of the posturing.

    Those reveling murderous are the perpetrators on either side … if indeed there are sides

    the sanctimonious brainwashed are still allowed keyboards apparently

  29. Armadillo

    Chamberlain genuinely believed that no body in their right mind could ever contemplate another war.

    Zulu, my point is that a war against Islam is inevitable. They won’t stop. Ever. Acquiescence to their demands will not placate them. History has proved that, time and again. It’s time to say NO. Enough is enough.

    Personally, I’d ban it and every last one of its adherents. It’s ideology is poison. It is a religion of hatred, not of peace. It is the single biggest threat to the world. It’s worse than than the Nazi’s ever were. Not only do they endorse the killing of J’s, they believe the subjugation of women is fine. They believe enslaving people is fine. They believe it’s fine to kill gays. They believe OK to kill non-believers.

    Everything about the religion is way more nasty to humanity than anything the Nazi’s ever dreamt about.

    And what does the Western world do about it? It not only sleeps, it actively collaborates with it.

    It’s worse than Chamberlaism.

    Went to Fraser Anning’s twitter account, lots of his tweets have been banned.

    What did he say that violated the Twitter rules?

  32. struth

    No, I’m disgusted that anyone has died.
    But I want the blame put squarely where it belongs.
    With the politicians, and especially the left wing politicians and all those amongst them who were determined to get rid of the dominant white culture as they saw it, de-unify the west, and set us as tribes.
    There are reasons why Mussies are a favoured culture/religion/political force to bring in and yet one white SA farmer brings on howls of “racism” even when they are being murdered in their own country.
    There are reasons why people like SNIFFY Mc SKIDMARK are so concerned for the country shoppers but scream blue murder at the admission of anyone with western culture and Christian beliefs.

    They set this all up, and when the violence starts from the morons on either side, they come racing in , as we have just seen SNIFFY and Monty do, to lay the blame for their lunacy at the feet of their political opposition.

    Those with western hating agendas, those who put virtue signalling as more important than others lives and their country, the foul stench of humanity which loathes the west and sits in Parliament, caused all of this, and yet there they are screaming at those who had no say in it, and didn’t want to import a culture that has openly declared war on us.

It may have been a response to similar idiotic tweets which he was repeating but just changing words. I don’t know.

    Aaaaaand … bingo, just 5 minutes ago:

    Former NZ PM expects Parliament to move to strengthen gun laws

    Helen Clark, who served as Prime Minister of New Zealand from 1999 to 2008, said the country’s gun laws can be “strengthened and improved”.
    “We do have gun control – people have to be fit and proper persons to have guns – but undoubtedly the law can be strengthened and improved,” she said.

    “Personally, I would be surprised if the New Zealand Parliament didn’t accept that challenge head on to strengthen the law. I think we could do better, and a tragedy like this brings that forward as a priority.”

    Counter-terrorism expert Greg Barton, from Deakin University said there were plenty of questions to be asked about how Brenton Tarrant was able to get the firepower he had.
    “New Zealand doesn’t have a gun register, so in that sense many people have for years been calling for tighter control. In a country of 4 million people, there’s more than a million guns. It’s a very rural picturesque country where people engage in recreational shooting, so you can understand that,” he said.

    “You would have thought getting an assault rifle was very hard, not like it is in America where it’s very easy. All the same, a man who was only in the country for some weeks was able to go out through whatever connections and source this gun. How could that have happened? Was it a freak occurrence or was it easy to do?”

    As any real student of history knows, Chamberlain was buying time to ramp up the war effort. Without him, Britain was toast.

    As any real student of history knows – I’d cite the diaries of Sir Maurice Hankey, to begin with – Chamberlain believed he had brought back “peace, perfect peace.”

    He was either blind as a bat to what was happening in front of his eyes, or wished reality would go away.
    Buying time to rebuild the army?

    Prof Siracusa told A Current Affair that New Zealand and potentially Australia had questions to answer over how the attack was carried out.
    “Every time the terrorists are successful, beginning from 9/11 to the current day, it means there’s an intelligence failure,” he said.
    He said he found it “unbelievable” Mr Tarrant had not been on a New Zealand watchlist.

    Catastrophic failure of intelligence. Well duh. The guy broadcast his intentions. He was posting pics of his arsenal for days on Twitter. Not stock photos either. The guy’s dad died a few years back (no mention of mother…abandoned? Divorced?) and he’s been travelling for at least 7 years so it may not be likely Australian authorities would know, especially given several white supremacist groups are known and active in the South Island.

    Mum’s side of the family came from there and my sister and I were born there. Our other sister was born in Adelaide when we moved there in the early sixties. We moved back to NSW in the early 70s to Grafton, Yamba, Evans Head then to Delungra then to Tenterfield, which was my last year of school in 1977, in year 11. Scored a job at the Grafton Ulmarra Dairy factory and could’t leave home fast enough. Got to say I have always loved the area, especially Brooms Head. Still go there on the odd holiday.

    Zulu Kilo Two Alpha thank God for Churchill. He understood the menace that Hitler posed. You are correct in that Britain had an anti war feeling after the Great War. But when push came to shove, he had no alternative. To acquiesce the enemy is to dance with the devil.

    Not much on the Cat about the ‘make them redo their paperwork till they give in’ approach of the EU to the Brexit negotiations. The fix is in; the EU wants Britain back and further referendums/extensions till they get it right and decide to stay, in the meantime paying up bigtime still to the EU post-EU elections. The people have voted NOT to have any more EU elections, but most of the tremulous wimps in the mother of Parliaments haven’t got the guts to do a Churchill and fight the enemy. They’d prefer to sup with the devil. Whatever happened to the British bulldog spirit? They are currently puppets on an EU string, taking orders meekly from Brussels.

    The UK should bite the bullet and leave now, in ten days. No deal. Proudly, knowing that once they are off the EU hook the EU will come begging to negotiate as they badly need the UK’s business. Britain may have up to six months of disruption, as they enter into new trade deals internationally as well, but that is a price worth paying for getting your country and your sovereignty back. Theresa May has been a hopeless negotiator; Trump acknowledges that. The Ireland border and passage issues have been total furphies, non-problems which she has allowed to continue to be used as a ridiculous hindrance to negotiations.

    Leave. Leave now, UK, and don’t look back. You can’t be less prepared than you were in 1939, you’re streets ahead compared to then. Find your mojo, an do it.

    Buying time to rebuild the army?
    Pull the other one.

    It was the air force that really needed rebuilding. Churchill gave Beaverbrook six weeks and a total new broom to turn the whole of the aircraft (read Spitfire) production around. Which he did, working the phones from home as well as visiting sites and calling in mechanics in teams from the car factories, men who knew their game, taking no notice of the British class system to recruit them into senior roles. He dispensed almost completely with paperwork. They had to beat the German Messerschmitts by changing the propeller function on the Spitfire too, which required a better linkage to the Merlin engine, so that the Spits could rise as quickly as or quicker than the Messers during take off, thus buying dogfighting time and advantage. They pumped out enough of those planes in good time for the blitzkrieg they knew was coming within months to London.

    Compare this to the wimps kowtowing to the EU today.

    The stereotype male in my culture shuts down the emotional response in an emergency and works out the best thing to do as cooly as he can. The stereotype female expresses her feelings, frequently by screaming at the top of her voice.

    They are certainly often wrong. There are tough, strong women who can do what men are supposed to do, we have some on the Çat. Conversely, there are effeminate men who can’t get their minds off their feelings. And in m0nty’s case make a virtue of it and proclaim their sensitivity.

    Gunning down men, women, and especially children, in a crowded space, is never ‘ho hum’.
    It’s visceral, if you stop at all and think about it. That feeling is a part of our humanity.
    So I’m not retracting a word I said about evil, and reflecting on it, although I take the point many raise that it may be easier to intellectually dismiss events relating to people with whom you feel no cultural bond or where there may even be cultural antipathies.

    I’d also say Dr. BG that, as a feeble woman, I am fairly cool-headed in an emergency; I’ve been through a few. However, it is not anti-rational to allow that one may also, at some stage, have a visceral reaction too. You just deal with it later, man or woman. However, I also take the point that hard men, less ‘visceral’ perhaps or more immediately pragmatic, are needed to keep poets and philosophers safe in their ivory towers. Tough men, strong enough to keep women safe at home hugging the kids as well.

    What is certain is that no one properly schooled in the profession of arms in Australia would ever shoot unarmed women and children. For all the bagging they get from the ABC, Greens etc., I’ve always found that our defence personnel have a strong ethical compass.

    It was the air force that really needed rebuilding.

    Yes. Also the development of Dowding’s defence air network, the first of its kind in the world and it made a world of difference. Dowding was also sufficiently prescient to insist on not losing too many fighter aircraft and pilots in Europe and the Channel, something Churchill never foresaw. Churchill was a navy man and didn’t have a clue about how important air defence was, even arguing for more bomber production when fighters were needed. Dowding saved Britain and if Britain had fallen at that time, with no opportunity for an eastern front, Germany could have taken at the least the essential parts of the USSR including Moscow and the oil fields(and the Suez plus oil in the ME). The USA would have had no opportunity to fight the Nazis. The world could have been a very different place.
