Charles P. Pierce has been a working journalist since 1976.  He is the author of four books, most recently "Idiot America".  He lives near Boston with his wife.

The following are excerpts from his March 15, 2019 article headlined "The New Zealand Attack Is Proof That White Supremacy Is an International Terrorist Threat" with the subheading "It stretches from Christchurch to Pittsburgh and extends out in every direction."

(Begin excerpts)
It is now perfectly plain that Anders Breivik, the murderous white-supremacist who killed 72 people in Norway in 2011, has become one of the most significant figures in international terrorism since the demise of Osama bin Laden. It is not merely the magnitude of Breivik's own violence, although that remains stunning in itself. Breivik formed the template for the modern white-supremacist mass murder....

The man says he is called Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old born in Australia. The 74-page document, called The Great Replacement, consists of a rant about white genocide and lists various aims, including the creation of “an atmosphere of fear” against Muslims. The document, which suggests an obsession with violent uprisings against Islam, claims the suspect had “brief contact” with the Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Breivik and that Breivik gave his “blessing” to the attack....

...there seems to be little doubt that the crimes themselves speak loudly of the basic truth that this was a right-wing act of war against a target population. And, because of that, we should take the following passage very seriously. The alleged shooter called the President* of the United States "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose." This doesn't sound like a good re-election bumper sticker but, at this point, who in the hell knows?

There is now little doubt that white supremacy is an international terrorist threat stretching from Christchurch to Pittsburgh and extending out in every direction. It runs on a parallel track with the rise of a xenophobic rightwing nationalist politics that is conspicuously successful in a number of putatively democratic nations. Liberal democracy is under attack and, like any revolution, this one has both a respectable political front and a violent auxiliary that operates on its own imperatives. That one of those auxiliaries cites both a Norwegian mass murderer and the President* of the United States as inspiration for killing 49 people is not only evidence of the width of the threat, but also the depth of its commitment to the cause. This is the everyday al Qaeda of the angry white soul, and it's growing.  (End excerpts)

These white suprematists are the least intelligent of their societies. They are the losers. Yes, they do kill people; but they are a dying group that will vanish. They are not much of a danger. Just watch Trump lose his next election.
What's on your mind...

Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City was definitely  a false flag black op like 9/11 and the interminable string of false flags before and since. I hope the one in Christchurch was a false flag too.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!
