No it is not except in the mind of right wing nut jobs looking to blame all Muslims for the acts of terrorism . Nut jobs here who blame the entire Muslim community for acts of terrorism are just as guilty as that Australian loon .
I'm blaming no one, just looking for an explanation. This is after the same explanation which is used when Muslim men use trucks as weapons against little deaf children in places like Sweden.

You must be creaming yourself with excitement.
No, just reflecting how this was so inevitable ... though New Zealand was never the place anyone would have expected.

Last year, 4 Americans were arrested while planning a similar attack on a US Mosque. And the shootings at the synagogue in Pittsburg last year is exactly like this shooting. Hate crimes like attacking "others" at their place of worship are on the up.

The international radicalisation of the hard-right, via the internet, is clearly a rising problem, but not one that many seem willing to face up to yet.

Unfortunately when Muslim terrorists started down that road it was only a matter of time before the right wing head bangers followed that route. It's a sad reflection of the world we live in.

Oh stop it- you are like the people you blame the French Revolution on coffee houses there.

The fact is that humans are one innately violent and two will always find reasons to be in conflict with each other- that is just life and often utopian plans to halt this end up making this situation worse.

They can count themselves fortunate if the deathtoll doesn't reach 60.

All we can do here is try to learn the lessons....we're not immune here to any of this either.

The hard right have been demonized for years. Not a week goes by but someone is writing a column or posting stuff about the far right. How a cell of people in a small country got passed the security services is the question.

Very true. The term radicalism is very interesting. Often used in reference to islamist terrorists. It seems to have taking on a sort of sympathetic meaning, particularly when referring to "younger" muslims who turn to extremism, almost implying "grooming" or luring of a "victim" has taken place?
Help seems to be then offered in the way of "de-radicalization" programmes.
I personally think this is BS, nobody talks of extremists like the parasite who carried out this mosque attack as being radicalised....nor should they imo.
I believe if you follow any political/religious ideology to these extremes....you should suffer the full consequences.

The perpetrators are white so the usual caution has been thrown to the wind. No one has any problem calling it a terrorist attack. Which it is. Or the perpetrators extremist. Which they are.

Or a person suffering from mental illness which seems to be the excuse when Muslims start mowing people down in trucks or knife attacks or random shootings.
No it isn't. And it is an excuse you would refuse to accept. Funny how it becomes a lone wolf with mental problems when it's a member of the far right sharing the same views you hold.

These are just as savage as any islamist terrorists. Pity they survived is my position

The algorithms that generate so much cash for silicon valley spivs are also responsible for the tsunami of radicalism and extremism.

So you are happy with his actions ? Pathetic
No but the language employed by journalists is far more damming and descriptive when the perpetrators are white.

The term "far right" is never attached to an islamist shooter where as it will be thrown around like confetti this next few day's

Both White Nationalist terrorism like this and what happened in Pittsburgh recently and Salafi Jihadist terrorism have a lot in common and one of those things is that both emerge from the breakdown and failure of Liberalism or Neo-Liberalism rather.
