1/ Big tech doesn't want people talking about Sandy Hook.

So let's ask some questions.

Just to annoy them.

#SandyHook
2/ Why does the *exact* location of SHES appear in two separate Hollywood productions: The Dark Knight and Dream House?

Just a coincidence right?

#SandyHook
3/ Why do social security records show that the shooter died the day *before* the tragedy? Isn't it a bit tricky to shoot up an elementary school when you're already dead?

Headed home to #Christchurch to run the marathon in honour of 51 people who can never run again.

I’ve designed my kit to reflect the love sent from Dubai (spot the neighbourhood mosque!) & some incredible Arabic calligraphy from the mother of a victim of the terror attacks
The calligraphy pieces are by renowned artist Janna Adnan Ezat. Janna's son Hussein Al-Umari was a victim of the massacre at Deans Ave; he died saving others. The family moved to #Christchurch from the UAE, where Janna was a famed artist - even designing a watch for Sheikh Zayed
In Arabic, this piece says: "Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un", which means: "We belong to Allah and to Allah we shall return."
This is said upon hearing the news of the death of someone.
I’ve simply got the words “love” and “peace” in Arabic in the middle

75/100 G. Waldhäusl fordert eine „Sonderbehandlung“ für Asylwerbern, die sich (seiner Meinung nach) nicht gut genug integrieren. Der Begriff “Sonderbehandlung” erinnert an NS-Sprache #100einzelfälle diepresse.com/home/innenpoli…
76/100 G. Nagel schreibt für d Magazin „Zur Zeit“. Die Aufarbeitung der Verbrechen des NS ist für ihn „Geiselhaft“. Er schimpft über Medien und Migranten. Auf FB träumt er von einem „offenen Krieg“, weil Friede unsere Kultur „zersetze“. #100einzelfälle oe24.at/oesterreich/po…

In initial interview before reaching ambulance, @MsNazContractor, playing the Muslim councilwoman whom Detective Carisi (@PeterScanavino) has already informed us is famous for anti-Semitic remarks, tells him & Detective Rollins (@KelliGiddish) that "those people" are responsible
for her assault. Thus, she confirms her antisemitism. The councilwoman is an barely concealed stand-in for Ilhan Omar, a representative to the US House of Representatives from Minnesota's 5th District. ilhanomar.com @nbcsvu @SVUWritersRoom
Min 0458: A reporter asks Chief Dodds (@petergallagher): "Councilwoman Nasar is an on-the-record anti-Semite. Can you comment?" Chief Dodds doesn't contradict the reporter's assertion, thus implicitly confirming it.

Strong advocates of #FreeSpeech should be the most sensitive to the responsibilities that accompany this right.

But the opposite often seems to be the case... THREAD
Central to the case against government restriction is the idea of individual responsibility, that we ought to be trusted to exercise our rights (such as freedom of expression) wisely and justly, in ways that don’t infringe on the rights of others.
Also the idea of social responsibility: that society (as distinct from government) ought to resolve conflicts of ideas and opinions - through counter-argument, shunning, contempt, even (dare I say) de-platforming.

Die neurechte Wochenzeitung #JungeFreiheit berichtet in einer Reportage über die #Identitären in Ö und D nach dem von ihnen inspirierten Terroranschlag von #Christchurch. Titel: "Inside #IB - Jetzt sprechen die Identitären." Hier mein Kommentar dazu.

#Sellner #IBÖ #noIB
Die beanspruchte Neutralität bricht schon am Titel, der suggeriert, dass die #Identitären um #IBÖ-Chef Martin #Sellner bisher nicht zu Wort gekommen wären. Dabei wurde zu diesem Thema niemand öffentlich so oft befragt wie eben jener Sellner, der in zahllosen Interviews seine
Sicht der Dinge darlegen konnte. Allein in der abendlichen Talkshow "Fellner! Live" auf @oe24 konnte er in den ersten beiden Aprilwochen dreimal(!) als der "derzeit meistdiskutierte Österreicher" auftreten u. seinen Standpunkt vertreten (in Deutschland nur schwer vorstellbar).

2) Ref is freq made in media reportage to Erikson's SEP 2017 conviction (along w fellow UPF members Blair Cottrell & Chis Shortis slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=41657) for srs religious vilification -- rather less frequently, his FEB 2014 conviction for stalking/harassing a Melbourne rabbi.
3) In that case, 'Magistrate Donna Bakos said she had no doubt Erikson's calls were motivated by prejudice & found he had little remorse for his crime'.

This is critical to understanding his subsequent & future behaviour, yeah?

heute ist #PressFreedom day, und es wundert mich, dass va hier kaum darüber geschrieben wird. ein paar aufrufe hier und da, ein paar zitate der letzten solidaritätsbekundungen mit dem #ORF und seinen journalistInnen. vor allem aus deutschland kam zu recht viel...
..zu recht, weil es dort viel zu verlieren gibt. aber wir sollten den tag oder was davon übrig ist nutzen - um darüber nachzudenken, was gerade passiert, von wem genau die aggression gegenüber dem prinzip freie presse/freie medien ausgeht. und vor allem über das wie, und warum.
es ist nicht die extreme rechte an sich, die der pressefreiheit gefährlich wird, als viel mehr ihre methoden und aktionen. und wir befinden uns ohnehin in einem stadium der fortgeschrittenen desorientierung und des schranken- und grenzenlosen medialen kampfs, das aufzudröseln..

'The man said he attracted Tarrant's ire after criticizing former UPF leader and neo-Nazi Blair Cottrell ahead of the rally in Eltham.'

A rally organised by TBC & Co., who wanted Syrian refugee families out (FOWF).

slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=40495
Around the same time (DEC 2016), the Christchurch killer's "Emperor" Cottrell was also invoking 'The Day of The Rope' -- a term popularised by US neo-#Nazi William Pierce in his 1978 novel 'The Turner Diaries' (which also inspired Timothy McVeigh).

My prayer is he doesn’t ski the two biggest fish, #HRC & #Obama! He may have to for now to get one of the other 8 to flip on them. I just don’t want any of them to get away.

#Troll expert @GingerGorman on the pattern of police after mass shootings saying “We had no idea, he wasn’t on a watch list” despite supremacist boards on 8chan inspiring the likes of #Christchurch. “I’m not tech-y and I could find this stuff - why couldn’t the police?” #nwf19
Murder as a product of online radicalisation is “an emergency” @GingerGorman says to @JaneCaro. “The internet is dangerous...and nobody is calling (social media companies) to account” #trolling #NWF19
There’s a stack of recommendations from a senate inquiry to strengthen Australian laws to crack down on cyber hate and harassment, and “they’re just sitting there” @GingerGorman says. #NWF19

Österreich hat momentan drei Ereignisse, die eine öffentliche Debatte über die rechtsradikale Prägung weiter Teile der Gesellschaft befeuern. Ein paar Bemerkungen dazu.
#christchurch #sellner #noib #noidis #nofpö #fpö #strache #kickl #övp #servustv #kubitschek #broder
Zum einen wäre da das Massaker von Christchurch, dessen Tätermanifest größtenteils mit FPÖ- und Burschenschaftszitaten nachgebaut werden kann. Auch von Seiten der ÖVP ist man in Teilen anschlussfähig, man koaliert schließlich auch mit der FPÖ
Dann wäre da der rassistische Vorfall in Wien, den man von FPÖ-Seite als Verschwörung zur Wahlkampfsstimmungsmache versucht darzustellen. Es darf nicht sein was ist: die antimuslimischen Kampagnen der FPÖ führen zu rassistischer Gewalt auf der Straße.

Well @Peston he's talking about the "Grand Wizards" chaired by Jacob-Rees-Mogg, who gave a speech to a NeoNazi group, proudly promoted #Christchurch attacker's inspiration Candice Owen, met with "Wear racism as a badge of honour" Bannon and just endorsed the AfD...
Now let's take two seconds to listen to Mr Rees-Mogg cooling off the debate.
Also comparing the European Union to Hitler...

Weil hier einige Gerüchte herumschwirren, vielleicht doch ein paar Worte zu MARTIN SELLNER, den #Identitären und den Verbindungen zum Attentäter von #Christchurch sowie dem internationalen Vernetzungen der #IB. Ein Thread. Wird ständig weitergeführt. (1/10)
Sellner hatte 2018 eine Spende über 1.500 💶vom Attentäter von #Neuseeland bekommen und sich per Email bei ihm bedankt. Gegen ihn wird nun wegen Verdachts der Mitgliedschaft in einer terroristischen Vereinigung ermittelt. Der Attentäter reiste 2018 noch durch Österreich. (2/10)
Das Bekennerschreiben des Attentäters trug den Titel "Der große Austausch", eine Verschwörungstheorie der Identitären in Europa. Der Text des Franzosen Renaud Camus erschien auf Deutsch im #Antaios-Verlag von Götz #Kubitschek, genauso wie Martin Sellners Buch "Identitär!" (3/10)
