"It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to." - W. C. Fields
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
It's the same freaking thing...in fact if we didn't have such a long history of racial motivated terrorism it would probably just be labeled under terrorism.
“Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.” John Maynard Keynes
It's easy to assume right off the bat that this was a racially motivated hate crime, i.e., white guy shots up a church killing 8-9 innocent Black people. But one of the victims was the church's Pastor and a SC Senator. From this, you could reasonable conclude that:
1) the shooter might not have liked the church's community out-reach.
2) the shooter didn't like something a specific church member did and took his anger out on whomever he saw around him during the Bible study session he attended.
3) the shooter didn't like the Senator Pinckney; maybe he was pushing a piece of legislation the shooter disagreed with.
Three very possible motives that have nothing to do with race. But like I said, I think it's safe to call this a hate crime based on comments from the lone survivor as reported by a third party.

He reloaded five times even as victims pleaded with him to stop, a relative of [Pastor & SC Senator] Pinckney's said. Sylvia Johnson, a cousin, told MSNBC that a survivor told her the gunman reloaded five times during the attack. Pinckney tried to talk him out of it, she said.
"He just said, 'I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country," Johnson said.
Sidenote: Thanks, Obama (pfft)
