Looks like many of his tweets (or maybe retweets) have been removed by twitter. But not this one.

Even when Muslims are the victims it's still somehow their fault? strawberry floating hell. That this was the official response of some politicians is almost as sickening as the attack itself.

This is horrifying and infuriating; strawberry float these fascist alt-right terrorist banana splits and strawberry float their disgusting Nazi ideology.

Just been reading about that Anning guy. Utter melt. Such a banana split that he was thrown out of the party for which he was their only senator.

This one has really affected me. I guess to be honest I'm a bit desensitised to shootings in the States, but I think of New Zealand as being a pretty peaceful, quiet place, so it's just cut straight through that. Been tearing up a bit reading the reports.



Let's not dogpile on CRD. It's an interesting point just made at an inappropriate time. I'm sure his reaction to the news was of total horror just like the rest of us.

It saddens me that my first thought to this thread title was:

"What American state is NZ...?"

I said to my missus this morning, I cannot fathom something like this ever happening in New Zealand - place seems like the most chilled country in the world.

This post makes me so angry there's no way to express it without getting, I dunno, hysterical? What sort of strawberry floating person posts like this?

Got it out of my system, but I had to say something.

Urgh, this whole thing is heinous. Twitter is an actual gooseberry fool show this morning: without even trying I've seen multiple screenshots of the guy's live stream and his manifesto.

EDIT: Apparently the video, or parts of it, are still on the Mail's site.

My first reaction was that it was sickening, what more needs to be said than that?

These shootings aren't only tragic but also frustrating for a multitude of reasons.
It's frustrating knowing that many media outlets are not going to report this as an act of terrorism.
It's frustrating seeing VIP's such as politicians victim blaming.
It's frustrating that the people who making a living fanning these flames will continue to do so.
But most importantly, it's frustrating because it justifies extreme views on the other end and supports the narrative that the west is hostile towards Muslims and that they are unwanted here. This will no doubt spur Islamic extremism which in turn will spur alt-right extremism. The west hates us vs they hate the west. This cycle will only continue and the acts of spontaneous violence will only become more and more common.

Thanks. But what's the relevance there? What's Pachter saying?

Bloody hell, this is awful, heartbreaking in fact, when it’s America you sadly shrug your shoulders because it’s another shooting that the government will not act on, you just don’t expect New Zealand to be on the news for this.

I still don’t understand how these people can’t see the hypocrisy of their anti immigrant stance, when they are white men in a country that they themselves would be from immigrants. strawberry floating banana splits the lot of them.

I’m dreading the day this happens here, it can happen anywhere now.

It seems like a very poor attempt at humour related to Pewdiepie.

Yeh PewDiePie was using Pi day as his day to gain subscribers (similar to the shooter advertising him) and Patcher is trying to make some kind of joke out of it

This one has really upset me - I don't know why. The Senator for QLD is human trash, and the whole situation is just vile on every level. Genuinely abhorrent attitudes, like all the tropes of white nationalism and racist white people all rolled into one horrifying whole.

Pewdiepie is a racist alt-right shitlord, so it doesn't surprise me that he's been linked to this.

The world being how it is, I'm sure his subscriber count will go up, which will be all he cares about.
