Shitposting, Inspirational Terrorism, and the Christchurch Mosque Massacre 

"This manifesto is a trap itself, laid for journalists searching for the meaning behind this horrific crime. There is truth in there, and valuable clues to the shooter’s radicalization, but it is buried beneath a great deal of, for lack of a better word, 'shitposting'"

@mooncake Thanks for this. It's a good read, and if it weren't already obvious from my boost I think more folks ought to read it.

@mooncake Thank you, i was looking for something and this write up is exactly what we were talking about in IRC this morning

@mooncake This post is itself fuelling its legitimization.
We dont need to debate what in the manifesto, or know what contained it.

Do you know what's in Chloe Sagal's letter? Why isnt that being discussed on the news first? At least she wasnt genocidal.

@djenderesensjuelist did you read the article? I’m just curious, bc the article I posted discusses that - and was trying to get ahead of journalists who *would* share quotes from the manifesto uncritically. Thanks for your input tho!
