Brenton Tarrant Manifesto: The ‘Great Replacement’ Rant
Mar 15, 2019
Brenton Tarrant, whose Facebook page streamed a graphic and extremely disturbing live video showing him gunning down people praying in a Christchurch mosque, posted links to a rambling “manifesto” on Twitter that he dubbed “The Great Replacement.”
It’s basically a grievance document that lays out Tarrant’s twisted beliefs that mass murder is justified by immigration and European birthrates. In one especially bizarre section, the gunman presents a list of questions that he assumes people will want to know (why he did it, who influenced him, and so on). He then answers the questions in the lengthy document. Overall, he’s motivated by a perception of white victimhood that he believes justifies violence...
...The manifesto is basically a lengthy rant of supposed racial grievance. One thing that really upsets the killer: Birthrates.
“It’s the birthrates. It’s the birthrates. It’s the birthrates. If there is one thing I want you to remember from these writings, its that the birthrates must change,” he writes. “Even if we were to deport all Non-Europeans from our lands tomorrow, the European people would still be spiraling into decay and eventual death.”
The manifesto also rants about “mass immigration” in juxtaposition to European birthrates. He calls it a “crisis of mass immigration and sub-replacement fertility” and calls that “an assault on the European people.”
In another spot, the manifesto rants about killing prominent politicians: “KILL ANGELA MERKEL, KILL ERDOGAN, KILL SADIQ KHAN.” He urges people to kill “high profile enemies,” saying that German Chancellor Angela Merkel, “the mother of all things anti-white and anti-germanic, is top of the list.”
Asked why he is resorting to violence, he explained, “There is no nation in the world that wasn’t founded by, or maintained by, the use of force. Force is power. History is the history of power. Violence is power and violence is the reality of history. Wake up.”
The Australian citizen said that “Australian (sic) is a European colony, particularly of British stock and thereby an extension of Europe.” He said he blamed immigrants and capitalists and added, “I blame both, and plan to deal with both.”
The shooter makes it clear. He intended to attack Muslims.
The manifesto refers to Turks as “roaches” and orders them to “flee to your own lands, while you still have the chance.” He claimed that European men “are to blame. Weak men have created this situation and strong men are needed to fix it.”
As to why he attacked Muslims, he wrote, “They are the most despised group of invaders in the West, attacking them receives the greatest level of support.” He ranted about climate change, saying that by killing “the invaders” he could “kill the overpopulation and by doing so save the environment.”
Part of his manifesto contains a passage headlined “to conservatives.”
“Conservatism is dead. Thank God. Now let us bury it and move on to something of worth,” he wrote. He criticized conservatives for conserving nothing. “The natural environment is industrialized, pulverized and commoditized,” he wrote. “Western culture is trivialized, pupled and blended into a smear of meaningless nothing.”
Another section was headlined “to Christians.” He wrote, “Let our lives be stronger than death to fight against the enemies of the Christian people.”
Another passage was headlined “to Antifa/Marxists/Communists.” He explained, “I do not want to convert you…I want you in my sights. I want your neck under my boot.”
The manifesto trashes “suicidal, nihilistic and degenerate pop icons produced from a dead culture,” mentioning Michael Jackson, Madonna, Kurt Cobain, and Freddie Mercury.
Perhaps bizarrely, the gunman’s manifesto combines environmentalism with racism. He considers himself an “eco-fascist.”
...Tarrant said he had planned the attack for two years and had chosen Christchurch three months before. He said he chose firearms for the attack because he believed it would mobilize the “left wing” in the United States to “abolish the second amendment,” which would in turn upset the “right wing” and fracture the U.S. “along cultural and racial lines.”
He said that he originally didn’t plan to pick New Zealand. But he decided it was a “target rich of an environment.” Tarrant later visited the mosques in Christchurch and Linwood and chose those.
He said, “It is a terrorist attack” and admitted that “there was a racial component to the attack.”
