Interesting Take: Christchurch Massacre Dubbed “The First Trolling Mass Murder” (Video)
Guest post by Bright Start News
YouTuber, Thomas Wictor, posted a video positing the idea that the Christchurch New Zealand massacre was not a race or religion inspired terror attack, rather it was the worlds first example of demented nihilist and a “Trolling Mass-Murder.”
The original video, which can be seen in full here is 12 minutes long, so we chopped it down to the 3 minutes that really matter for the point he’s making (you’re welcome).
His basic premise is that everything this guy did and said was typical nihilist trolling, from extolling people to follow PewDePie, to calling out Candice Owens as his number one influencer.
This was the first reality based mass murder. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” of terror.
The Atlantic agrees
The calls to shut down internet chat boards is already starting:
As someone who has had to spend a lot of time on 4chan and 8chan tracking threats of violence, both websites should be shut down. I don't know how, just do it. Just get rid of them. They have no redeeming value. They are a breeding ground for hatred and violence.

4chan should've been shut down ages ago

Time to shut down 8chan and 4chan.

When a muslim murders 49 gay people in a Florida night club, the community immediately rallied around the mosque and muslim community he hailed from. There were repeated admonishments to warn against a backlash, and remind people how peaceful muslims are.
On the flip side, when a terrorist shoots up a mosque full of worshipers, the whole community is blamed and punished collectively.
Has it occurred to anyone that THIS is what the shooter was aiming to expose?
If so, progressive culture has played right into his hands and given him exactly what he wanted. He’s exposed that some religious inspired murders are more outrageous than others.
What he’s really exposed is that the world has grown 100% complacent about Muslims murdering people. It doesn’t even shock the senses anymore. It’s only when the reverse happens that we feel outrage, precisely because it’s out of the ordinary.
