NZ SHOOTER ACCOMPLISHED ALL 3 OF HIS GOALS: 1, Acceleration, 2, Moving/smashing Overton window, 3, Revenge.
Acceleration. Just play out the game theory. The Left reacts utterly predictably to everything. Thus it is easy to play them like a fiddle. Everything the Left wants to do, they are already pushing for, hard. Gun grabs, demonize whitey, demonize the Right, etc. This NZ shooting just gives the Left more excuses & motivation to do it more, harder, faster. Which in turn amps up the Right’s angst & redpills more whites. It speeds up what’s already happening.
(Note, nothing in the current system can stop the Left once they start winning all the elections, and no leadership in the current system shows any willingness+ability to stop the costs being imposed on the Right and on whites. Thus the shooter’s logic was that there is no point in “keeping things civil” or “taking the high road” because that just means whites and the Right losing.)
His 2nd goal was to move the Overton window by sending a message: “If our governments will not protect us from violent underclass invaders, we will do it ourselves”; while simultaneously making Muslims feel less welcome in the West. He did this expertly by making his act difficult to memory-hole: live stream of his calculated act, “Kebab Removal” written on his gun (like something out of a revenge movie, memorable), full manifesto with mentions of Trump, Candace Owens and PewDiePie (ensures media attention, & blame placed on Trump by the Left etc.; attention = oxygen). Attacked least sympathetic group of immigrants (Muslims), thus a huge # of whites & right-wingers will find themselves agreeing with at least parts of his manifesto & will not jump to victims’ defense near as much as with Jews or blacks. (This is already obvious on right-wing comment sections & social media.) Highlighted little girl killed by Muslim attack in Europe as his trigger. (Very sympathetic image to many people.) Talked openly about civil war & his desire to trigger/accelerate it. This shows “the Right is not afraid, but welcomes it”, and regardless of what one thinks of the act, it puts civil war into the conversation in a very powerful way, and no one can spin this or handwave it away as “oh, everything’s fine, conflict is not increasing, civil war isn’t possible” etc. He moved the Overton window expertly.
His 3rd goal was to get revenge on Muslims. Which he did.
He accomplished all 3 of his goals with aplomb.
(Note, this does not imply I condone his act.)
