Breaking! MASS SHOOTINGS at numerous Mosques in New Zealand, gunman posted VIDEO [Updated]

Horrific details are coming out of an attack on numerous mosques in New Zealand, where it’s Friday right now.

Watch below:

Dozens of shots, lots of fatalities, lots of chaos. And disturbingly, one of the attacks appeared to have been live-streamed online.

A suspect is in custody, but police believe there was more than one attacker:

From the Prime Minister:

There is video, I saw it, it is horrifying. We will not post it. That is what the murderers wanted.

And one of the killers apparently posted a long manifesto:

We’ll update as necessary, there are likely many many casualties. Pray for New Zealand.

UPDATE: More video, from a witness:


Four have been captured.

Here’s part of the scumbag’s manifesto:


There were IEDs:

  1. Hideous plot fails – this unites us against ugly, violent Leftist nut cases whose only tool is violence; it does not divide us.

  2. The Left has done nothing but foster division and hate. Enough with them. Reject the violent methodology of the Left.

  3. While the left is engaging in their usual knee jerk blaming of the right, first and foremost, the truth is right under their nose. If they honestly want to know why these events are occuring more frequently and at a larger scale, they need to look no further than a large block of their constituents, the rise of atheism and secularism. The link between Atheists and gun violence, as I’ve said before, is very compelling. Almost every mass shooter since Columbine has been an atheist or Islamic terrorist, but that topic is just never looked into or investigated further.

    Guns have been around for hundreds of years, so we know it’s not that. White Christians have also been around for hundreds of years and some argue are on a decline, so we know it’s not that. The only upsurge we see is the high number of converts to secularism and atheism. Not saying all atheists or seculars are capable of this, but if you have the right mixture of mental imbalance/personality disorder and lack of moral authority, this is what we should expect.

  4. I’m hearing he went after Conservatives in his manifesto, and he’s an environmentalist.

    1. Both the “racist” governor and the “rapist” Lt governor are still in office in Pennsylvania, because they were Democrats. What does that tell you about real Leftist values.

  5. Well, this is a first. As far as I can remember, these roles are always reversed, but it will be used against all the white people, and the MSM will pretend it’s an ongoing, recurring problem. I’m sorry this is what first comes to mind. If the MSM didn’t behave the way it does, I wouldn’t have thunk it. I’m sorry people have lost their lives, and I’m sorry there are nuts like this in the world.

  6. Sometimes I’m morbidly curious to watch videos that show violence. Part of me wants to face the evil that was done directly. Part of me disbelieves that such evil can exist without seeing it with my own eyes.

    I learned from the ISIS beheading videos, however, that witnessing these kinds of videos has consequences. It damages your mind, in a way. No more morbid voyeurism for me.

  7. Per his manifesto: Even though the shooter was from Australia and living in New Zealand, he saw all Muslims as “intruders” trying to take over “their lands”. I can see his and others frustration, BUT cold blooded murder isn’t the answer.

    1. It sort of reminds of the guy who hated abortion, so he killed an abortion doctor. He did the wrong thing for the right reasons. Same here. There is legitimate concerns about “stealth jihad”, but killing innocent people is just wrong.

    2. NZ has very strict immigration laws. If Muslims were in the country, they were invited by NZ to be there.

  8. The three hamasketeers in our Congress need to be asked where is their outrage when Christians are beheaded by muslims? That never gets the same attention as something like this. Also, where did this guy get the guns? Isn’t there strict gun control there? Remember the lesson of Covington Catholic and know that the left’s tactic is the ends justifies the means when it comes to breaking their own eggs. The politicians that allow Muslim takeovers need to be held accountable for this as well. They neglect their own citizens for muslims coming into their country.

    1. @desireeodey Exactly right, the slaughter of Christians in Africa and other places goes unreported.

  9. Pennsylvania isn’t even letting the bodies get cold.

    ( A new bill introduced in Pennsylvania would establish a gun registry within the state.

    HB0768 is known as the Firearms Registration Act. The Democrats that introduced the bill were Mary Louise Isaacson (D), Angel Cruz (D), and Mary Jo Daley (D). Last Friday, the General Assembly referred the bill to the committee on judiciary.

    The bill would require gun owners in the Keystone State to register their firearms with the Pennsylvania State Police. Owners would have to provide the police with the make, model, and the serial numbers of all their guns.

    Along with the application that the gun owner must swear to under oath, the gun owner would have to submit fingerprints, two photographs that are no older than 30 days and go through a background check for each firearm that they own. This background check is the same one that they must go through to purchase a gun.

    In addition to this requirement, they must also provide the Pennsylvania State Police with their home and work address, telephone number, social security number, date of birth, age, sex, and citizenship. This requirement is more information than a person needs to vote.

    Two of these dem scumbags are from Philly. Not sure about the other one.

    1. @Chow Ammoland is a great site for anti-gun legislation. Right now, a number of states are proposing new gun-grabbing laws.

  10. So the guy is Australian? And he’s “defending” his “homeland” from Muslims? It’s not his homeland!

    I do wish there was some way to keep truly dangerous mentally ill people from shooting people, but if New Zealand can’t do it, I don’t know if we ever can here. They have gun control, background checks…

    Hey what do all these symbols at the top do?[spoiler title=” “]

      • So that one makes it italic… none of that is a quote, I was just experimenting.

  11. Already reading on social media how this is somehow US Conservatives’ fault. Tucker Carlson apparently was the guy pulling the trigger in the mosque.

    As usual, the Left is pointing fingers without any sense of rationality. Suddenly, all the left-leaning killers are forgotten because some guy in New Zealand seems like a righty from 8chan stock.

    1. Yep, I saw that too. People are blaming the right and call for disarming them. Just like the murderer wanted to bring conflict.

    2. Right, and they are focusing on calling him a right-winger, which means different things across the world. In his case, he was a racist fascist. Unfortunately, the pepe the frog trolls over at Breitbart are doing their best to prove social media right. I wish they would stop attaching themselves to the conservative movement. They are anything but that. It makes me more sad and angry than listening to the left point their finger to be honest.

      1. These creeps are progressives…they believe in the collective and identity politics. I get irritated when conservatives refer to them as alt-right…they are anything but right….they are of the left.

  12. @soopermexican I’m hearing this morning it was streamed using Facebook Live. I’ve never used it, so I’m not familiar with it. You said you saw the video, so my question is { how did you hear about it late last night } and what media did you view the live video? Facebook, YouTube, etc?

    1. @Landscaper The #Christchurch link above shows the video on Twitter. I suppose that it could have been FB, though.

      1. If the shooting footage was there, it was either scrubbed or lost deep within the twitter feed because that link is getting hundreds of hits per minute.

        1. @Landscaper I watched it earlier, on the phone it looked like a video game, but I imagine that it’ll horrific on a big screen.

    1. Typical with leftists. Somehow a lunatic in a gun-controlled country on the other side of the world is the fault of people who just want free markets and individual liberty.

        1. I looked it up this morning and glanced at the overview. Basically you don’t have a right to own a gun. You can register for one and the police can choose to let you have it or not, depending upon your professed need and whether or not they think you’re a good citizen with no criminal record, psychological problems, etc. Self defense is not a valid reason for wanting a weapon and there are lots of restrictions on the types of guns that are allowed to be licensed with more types being taken off the market periodically.

          1. @ttt I did, too. Basically, they’re stricter than we are, but less than the rest of the UK.

  13. This is terrible and I hope the monsters responsible are brought to justice.

    No doubt Omar and Tlaib as well as The Left will exploit it.

  14. Up to 49 confirmed dead now.

    I suspect this number will rise.

    This monster shot at children as they ran for their lives. Two men who were driving past as the event unfolded at one mosque ran towards the gunfire, helping the victims as they lay on the road, two of which were a man and his 5 year old daughter, who were shot as they tried to escape the mosque. The father died in their arms and they sheltered the critically injured little girl in their work van as the shooter kept shooting at others running away.

    People who lived close to the mosque opened their doors and provided shelter and cover to the people who ran away, and providing first aid to the injured.

    This is what New Zealand stands for. Christchurch has seen so much heartache, to see them suffer through this is now is heartbreaking. They were coming back from a devastating earthquake.

  15. Lots of casulties from this one, so the leftist knee jerk will be big. Get ready for islamophascist and gun-grabbing propaganda from the left.

  16. So the intent was to create global chaos. No doubt we will hear about the follow’s extensive criminal and/or mental health history. Evil is evil.

  17. Social media will no doubt be full of people practicing self restraint and prudence on this terrible event.

    I just sent up a prayer for the survivors.

    1. @K-Bob Yeah, self-restraint and prudence are the first things that come to mind when I think about social media.

  18. Very sad, but this backlash was inevitable, and there will no doubt be more. This will give the islamosavages the ability to paint themselves as victims and gain more political power from the misguided leftists. Of course, the routine attacks by the islamosavages themselves all over the world will continue to be overlooked in the interest of political correctness.

    Some might say that these people were innocent victims, but they follow an ideology that advocates violence against infidels.

    1. Now I hear that children were victims of the attack, so I amend my statement. Kids don’t deserve it.

      1. Too late! Appologize and confess your sins to the PC god!

        Your statement is 100% correct and we know you didnt include children–they just follow what their parents are doing. I don’t know the details and idealogy of the mosques that were attacked, but there was a study done a while back in mosques in US which found that many of them were disseminating hate against the country and it’s people.

        1. @Abe Many people profess to know good muslims, but I’m of the opinion that the moderates hold your feet while the radicals cut your head off.

          1. There are lots of them, Doc, and they’re speaking out against all the violence and anti-Semitism. It’s just that we hardly ever hear about them because they’re the normal ones. They also have to keep a low profile while in their own countries, which is understandable. The ones who are speaking out are the ones over here who have escaped the tyranny of their homelands and can do so without the same fear of being killed.

            1. @laphil Most of the ones who are speaking out recently that I’ve noticed have converted to Christianity. I don’t recall a great outpouring of rage from the ‘good’ muslims after 9/11.

    2. Each and every day of the year Muslims all over the world kill each by the hundreds, Sunni vs Shia and vice versa, the news media barely whimpers a word of these incidents. This tragedy allows them to spin their narrative of bigotry and racial hatred simply because the nut case shooter is a white male.

      Democrat politicians here in the U S can’t wait to somehow tie this tragedy to the NRA or lawful gun owners in the U S. Any horrific massacre, no matter where in the world, will be held up by progressive, gun grabbing, democrats as a reason we must get guns out of the hands of the commoners.

      All the Muslim hate groups, CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, etc. will be out in force today decrying “white nationalist” hatred and bigotry. They will demand action in this country, for what? Who knows? They won’t let this tragedy go to waste, it’s what they do.

      I will pray for the victims.

      1. @RWrad Yes, and if you read Spencer or Geller, attacks against infidels and especially Christians are going on every day. When 49 Christians are slaughtered by Boko Harum there’s not a peep out of the MSM. This incident can be used against law abiding gun owners, so it’s going to be big news.

    3. “Some might say…”

      Either the victims had it coming and the cell acted heroically or the dead were innocent, there’s little middle ground.

      1. @DinoDoc I wouldn’t say that they deserved it, but they did put themselves at risk by following an ideology that advocates violence.

  19. In addition to mentioning Pewdiepie in the beginning of his video he writes this in his manifesto:

    ‘The person that has influenced me above all was Candace Owens, each time she spoke I was stunned by her insights.’

    Nothing like being named as an inspiration by a lunatic. The SJWs will attack her en masse.

    1. The guy is a total nutjob. First of all, Owens is black and he’s a nazi racist. Second, Ive never heard Owens advocate any hate or violence.

  20. “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” (Genesis 6:11-13).

    “And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.” (Luke 17:26-27). Whenever I hear of senseless violence throughout the earth, I think of these verses. Just as believers were saved out of it in the days of Noah, believers will be saved out of this world before God judges it in the Tribulation.

  21. I just watched the GoPro video that the deranged killer made while on his attack. This guy is an absolute cold blooded monster.

    He goes in with a semiauto shotgun and empties nine rounds into everyone standing at the front door. He tosses the shotgun to the ground and picks up the AR that’s hanging from a sling. He enters the main part of the building, a large open room. He shoots so fast it is hard to keep count but the mags are at least thirty rounds but seem like more…fifty round mags? He has the mags taped together so he can pull the spent one out and just flip it around to get a fresh one. His guns and mags are covered in white writing which is difficult to read. Everyone is in two groups, on the floor, to his left and right. One man tries to run past him to escape and is gunned down at point blank range…should have attacked him instead. He retreats to the entrance hallway to reload. His rifle has a high power flashlight set to strobe to disorient anyone who looks at him. After reloading he goes back into the main part of the mosque and empties his second mag into two piles of victims, one pile to his left and one to his right. He retreats to the hallway again to reload. Again he goes into the main room and empties a mag into the two piles of victims. There are probably ten or twelve people in each corner of the room. This time he reloads in the room. His flashlight has fallen off and is blinking on the floor. This time he shoots more slowly aiming at the victims carefully. It is difficult to believe that anyone survives this. He goes back to the entrance hallway, reloads and goes outside, stepping over the bodies of the dead. On the street he shoots down the sidewalk at someone. He goes back to his car, drops his AR on the ground and gets another semiauto rifle from the rear hatch, picks up a can of gasoline, puts the can back in the car and then goes back to the mosque again with the new rifle. He runs past the entrance to the far side of the building and takes several shots at people toward the rear of the building. Then he goes back inside the mosque to the main area and slowly and methodically shoots everyone again from very close range…headshots. Then he runs back to his car. On the way he manages to shoot a woman fleeing in the street. She goes down in front of his car. He shoots her in the head two more times and then drives over her as he flees the scene. As he gets into his car you can hear the sound system in it playing “Fire” by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. He drives away.

    There are no police on the scene. Nearly six minutes have elapsed.

    As he drives away he talks about his regret about not taking the gasoline with him so that he could burn the place down. He absurdly describes his attack as a “fire fight” as if someone was engaging him. There was no resistance. After the first kills at the door everyone was on the floor or huddled in the corners. It was a massacre.

    As he drives away he shoots at several other people on the street through the window of the car.

  22. I’m reading on Twitter that this is also Pewdiepie’s fault. It’s full out nuts time against everyone but the guy who did this. It’s what he wanted.

        1. Just shows our age and what is unimportant to us, Doc. Not sure if that is good, bad or indifferent, but in my older years, I am thinking a little bit of ignorance is certainly blissful, especially when it comes to irrelevance. 😉

          1. @Charli Yep. I may look up Pewdiepie later, if I remember. Right now I have to go drive my truck around really slowly while people are in a hurry to get home.

      1. YouTuber with the most subscribers, old media has been trying to knock him down by smearing him as a nazi.

      2. He plays video games and streams the gameplay so others can watch, serving as tutorials – reviews – entertainment. Harmless chap who has a great sense of humor.

  23. This guy is being called a Right-wing terrorist. He doesn’t seem very Right-wing.

    1. @Watchman reported that the shooter wrote, “I was a communist, then an anarchist and finally a libertarian before becoming an eco-fascist.” So maybe AOC is to blame. That works both ways.

    2. LOL!!! I saw that…she wasted NO time to weigh in on this….why the nation does not simply fire everyone, from Trump down to the lowest staffer in the WADC, and bow down to Queen O’crazio for her unsurpassed knowledge and wisdom is beyond me….clearly, she knows EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING and we must all defer to her for her great wisdom (sarc) 😉

  24. One shooter, the one who livestreamed and wrote the manifesto is a self described white nationalist, who launched his terrorist attack in New Zealand to highlight how white European culture is under attack by who he called “the invaders”.

    He is an Australian. The irony of his going to another country, to shoot migrants who live in that country and who are welcomed in that country, and deeming them invaders cannot be ignored here. In his manifesto, he says that he is “just a regular White Man, from a regular family. Who decided to take a stand to ensure the survival of my people”.

    He is not crazy. He is evil, he is racist, he is a bigot, he is hateful.

    Prior to his attack, he went onto 8chan, the online white supremacist cesspit, and advised of what he intended to do and they told him they looked forward to hearing the news about it.

    And he then attached his gopro camera and went on his killing spree. At one point, after exiting the Mosque a second time (he re-entered it to shoot at the bodies of the people he had already shot), he shot a woman fleeing in the street. Among the victims are also children, at least one shot outside the mosque as they tried to flee and hide. While in the mosque, he went through every room and shot at everyone and anyone he could aim his gun at. He was seen in the video reloading several times.

    He is the one believed to have been arrested, with police ramming his car off the road and basically arresting him.

    At least two mosques have been attacked. There could be more shooters.

    They are saying that dozens of people may have been killed.

  25. How awful.
    I hope and pray there won’t be any retaliation. I have relatives in Christchurch.

  26. He’s reportedly an Australian male in his 20s by the name of “Brenton Tarrant”, and like all crazy people he had a manifesto:

    “I was a communist, then an anarchist and finally a libertarian before becoming an eco-fascist,” he wrote.

    He also made a bizarre reference to Spyro the Dragon, a PlayStation game, saying it “taught me ethno-nationalism”.

    1. Perhaps “libertarian” means something different over there, as NO Libertarian in America would ever claim to be communist, then anarchist….democrats, on the other hand WOULD. Plus, the words he uses, such as eco-fascist or ethno-nationalism, are very AntiFU-type words. It is Friday, so all day and weekend, this will be the news.

  27. Wait, I’m pretty sure that the government has to license any kiwi they give a gun to down there, and to be eligible for said license you have to pass a bunch of background checks – including mental health.

    So, did gun control policies intentionally arm this guy, or did they just fail because gun control is a myth?
