Re: Churchill NZ under lockdown!

This is very bad news, and to be honest something I would never have expected happening in NZ.

Friday prayers for greatest impact ?

BBC reporting on the tragedy

Re: Churchill NZ under lockdown!

I was surprised that this happened in New Zealand. They have always been very tolerant as a nation. The reports say that the gunman was from Australia. Not sure what they hoped to achieve but it will result in yet more attacks by extremists.

the flow of aussies and kiwis across the tasman sea is very frequent and there was a statement that the gunman was sick and tired of muslim immigrants coming into oz and tassie - well now he will serve most of his life in prison hopefully and not enjoy his home country freedom or tassie either - sensless!

Re: Churchill NZ under lockdown!

People are getting to the point that they are beginning to see what has been taking place is colonisation and with politicians failing to even recognise this let alone take action it is inevitable that the more emotionally unstable will feel that they must take action.

What has happened is unquestionably terrible however if governments had recognised what was happening to the established cultures of their countries and stepped in instead of acommadating it under the stupid idea that a multicultural nation was even possible then 49 people might still be alive today.

Re: Churchill NZ under lockdown!

Twitter deleted a whole hashtag on this presumably because it is being used to stir more hate. I am seeing others online trying to justify it.

Re: Churchill NZ under lockdown!

Feel so sorry for the families of the victims and NZ generally, when terror arrives like this it changes a place forever. Sad day for all IMO.

Interesting article in The Irish Independent (URL above) interesting in that it includes a statement by an Australian government senator setting out his view on what took place and an excellent summation of islam.
