    Mass shootings at Christchurch mosques

    As I post this news, it is still an ongoing situation in New Zealand. There are multiple shootings at two separate mosques in New Zealand. The peaceful services were interrupted by gunfire. One mosque is on the north island, in Auckland, the other on south island, Christchurch.

    Mass shootings at Christchurch mosques

    NZ Prime Minister: "One of New Zealand's darkest days"New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern held a press conference into the shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, describing it as "one of New Zealand's darkest days."
    "What has happened here is an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence," she said.
    Ardern said the attacker has "no place in New Zealand."
    "For now my thoughts and I'm sure the thoughts of all New Zealanders are with those who have been affected their families," she said.

    Violence is certainly not the way to achieve your aims, especially these types of senseless acts. Motive for the shootings remain to be determined, but I'm probably not speaking out of term to suggest that people's first reaction to hearing this news is to suspect some Islamophobic intent. Discerning motives in the countless Islamic terrorist attacks upon Europe landed me in fair amount of hot water here on DP, but it's safe to assume less restraint in jumping to conclusions will now be made by those who made every excuse in the world for the terrorist who perpetrated the Bastille Day attack of 2016 in France, for example.

    Condolences to those affected.

    After a mass shooting of Muslims he goes on a long rant about Muslim terrorists then adds "oh yeah... My condolences or whatever". Some people really are just plain scummy.

    Wow. How soon they forget.



    I saw a study which determined liberals suffer from a personality disorder (my conclusion) whereby they sympathize with people outside of their identity group to a large degree. This describes you.

    Again, you're opinion is worthless, so I'll not get lost.
