NZ mass murderer noted white supremacist support for Emanuel gunman Dylann Roof and Donald Trump

A man accused of killing dozens of Muslims in New Zealand on Friday cited support for Emanuel gunman Dylann Roof and U.S. President Donald Trump for amplifying white extremism in a lengthy manifesto posted online before the killings.

In all, 49 people have been confirmed killed by shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. One gunman shared video of the killing spree, apparently taken from a head-mounted camera, on Facebook. Forty-one people were killed at one mosque, seven at another, and one died at a local hospital, according to NYT reports of police announcements. Dozens more, including children, were treated for injuries. Four people are being held in the crime, one has been charged. None have been identified.

Similar to Emanuel killer Dylann Roof, those suspected of carrying out the mosque shootings reportedly posted a long manifesto online detailing desires for white racial purity and anxiety over "white genocide." The suspected New Zealand killer's writings lay out worries over the "complete racial and cultural replacement of the European people." The document has not been officially verified.
