There are some deeply disturbing images and videos online. It seems the shooter posted on 8chan and live-streamed the event. Pro-trump anti-Islam. Scores dead.

Edit. No 8chan links please.

This is terrifying. Apparently a coordinated attack as the AP reports a second mosque shooting.

This is why I do not tell random people I am Muslim and why my mosque has security

I don't really wish this sh**t on anyone...but from the video doesn't look like anyone stopped him...he may just be onto his secondary target.

As an Australian you feel insulated from events like this. New Zealand is a different country but to many of us it still feels like a part of home. Heartbreaking stuff

I know Christchurch mostly as the site of the Parker-Hulme murder case, a media circus from the 1950s that the early Peter Jackson movie Heavenly Creatures (starring a very young Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey) dramatizes. This is obviously orders of magnitude worse, and further sinks the probably very skewed impression I have of the place.

To go sincerity mode for a moment, if any Muslim forumites want someone to talk to or vent at about this, I always read my PMs.

Despicable. Now is the time for the whole of the Anglosphere to rise up with one voice, and say "No!" to Islamophobia.

Also, 8chan and 4chan should be banned.

Except the thing is probably 10-20% of the anglosphere hates us, and probably is cheering this guy on.

and they are apparently all in that 8chan thread

This is internet troll culture, right wing extremism, and violence mixing in the most horrific fashion possible. F*** this guy and f*** 8chan.

I bet scores of New Zealanders are proud of this guy.
Outrageous statement. Do you know anything at all about New Zealand?

Evidently enough hate us to spill our blood on the streets
