Turkish President Erdogan Writes Washington Post Op-ed on Christchurch, Rails Against Islamophobia

The Washington Post on Tuesday allowed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, one of the world’s leading authoritarian jailers of journalists, to write an op-ed about the Christchurch shooting. In the piece, Erdogan praised Turkey’s ostensible hospitality to minority groups and railed against widespread “Islamophobia” in the Western world. Erdogan’s thesis was that the Christchurch killer is exactly the same as the Islamic State – an anodyne observation in the sense that both used violence to achieve their fanatic political ends, but utterly absurd when considering the size and influence of…

CNN Continues to Lie About Charlottesville in Attempt to Connect Donald Trump to New Zealand Attack

CNN continues to lie to its views in the United States and around the world about what President Donald Trump said about the riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. As Breitbart News has explained repeatedly, and as CNN’s own coverage at the time showed, Trump used the phrase “very fine people” to describe non-violent protesters on either side of the debate over a Confederate statue — and specifically excluded the neo-Nazis, whom he “condemned totally.” Yet for the past several weeks, CNN has reported that Trump was referring to neo-Nazis…

Hawkins: New Zealand Attack Reminds Us Being Armed Is Part of Being Prepared

While there are myriad lessons that can be drawn from the heinous attack in Christchurch, the one at the forefront of my mind is that being armed is part of being prepared. Real life is not Utopia, it is an experience where decent people are constantly under threat by people with bad intentions. And evil can strike wherever you are, whether that is in a school or university, a church, mosque, or synagogue, or a night club in Paris or a music concert in Las Vegas. Evil can strike at…

Christchurch Manifesto: Nation with Closest ‘Values to My Own Is the People’s Republic of China’

The man allegedly responsible for the mass shooting at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, wrote in his manifesto that the modern political system he most admired was that of communist China. In a detailed question and answer style manifesto written before the attack that killed 49 people and left dozens of others injured, alleged perpetrator Brenton Tarrant outlined his belief that the white race would eventually disappear as a result of mass immigration from primarily Islamic nations. While rejecting certain labels including Neo-Nazism, xenophobia, and even Islamaphobia, he does describe…
