Piers Morgan blames Donald Trump for Christchurch massacre

You knew it would happen. An Australian who identifies as an eco-fascist, and who admires the People’s Republic of China as a political state, goes on a rampage at a mosque in Christchurch, killing 50 people, and Donald Trump is to blame. Piers Morgan has said so.

If that isn’t exactly what he said, then it is definitely what he has implied. quote.

I don?t know how someone can calmly walk towards a child lying on the floor riddled with bullets, and then fire more into their tiny bodies.

Yet that is what this monster did. end quote.

Good grief. Words fail me. I didn’t watch the video. quote.

In doing so, he proved himself to be just as sub-human as the ISIS terrorists he professes to detest, the barbarians who throw gay people off roofs, stone women to death and set fire to enemies in cages so they burn alive.

By the time the Christchurch assassin, an Australian named Brenton Tarrant, was finished shooting up the Al Noor Mosque, at least 41 people were dead and scores more wounded, 20 critically. end quote.

See how quick these people are to make condemnations, before the events have fully unfolded? Morgan wrote this before it was known that 49 people have died. He just couldn’t wait to put the boot in, could he? quote.

This was an act of terrorism by a white supremacist that hates people not like him. Especially Muslims.
And he hates them so much he felt compelled to kill them.

end quote.

He had no ties to supremacist groups. He was a lone operator, and in fact could be seen as socialist in some of his views. And no – I am not blaming socialists either. quote.

He chose New Zealand because it would show ?nowhere in the world was safe?.

end quote.

We knew it would happen one day. We just never expected the perpetrator to be an Australian. quote.

Tarrant also said he was a supporter of US President Donald Trump who he described as a ?symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.?

Now let me be very clear: I don?t hold President Trump personally responsible for what happened in Christchurch. end quote.

Glad to hear that, Piers.. although you then contradict yourself. quote.

But what I do hold President Trump responsible for is his abject failure to properly denounce these kind of white supremacists and make it crystal clear that he holds them in nothing but absolute contempt.

He had a chance to do this after the appalling attack in Charlottesville in 2017 when a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of people, killing civil rights activist Heather Heyer.

But instead, Trump absurdly tried to draw some moral equivalence between the far right marchers and counter-demonstrators.

What Trump SHOULD have done that day is denounce all far-right white supremacists as a shameful blight on America.

He should have understood that his words, as the most powerful man on earth, have huge impact around the world, and that every far-right white supremacist will have taken succour from his failure to properly denounce them that day. end quote.

Rubbish, Piers. No one ever publicly blames all Muslims for terrorist attacks carried out by radicals. Nor should anyone blame all ‘white supremacists’ (read ‘conservatives’) for the attack of one nutcase on Muslims. Trump did nothing to encourage this. The perpetrator was not even particularly a Trump supporter. quote.

Trump?s often violent rhetoric also disturbs me.

Who knows what effect it has on disturbed, potentially violent minds?

Last night, Trump promoted on Twitter an interview he?d given to Breitbart News in which he boasted how ?tough? his supporters could get.

?I have the support of the police,? he said, ?the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump. I have tough people, but they don?t play it tough, until they have go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad.?

But he should never have used those aggressive words in the first place.
They sound like a call to arms, like he?s endorsing violence by his own supporters.
Today, President Trump had another opportunity to firmly and equivocally denounce white supremacists and the far-right ideology they stand for.
But he couldn?t do it.
Instead, he just issued standard lame presidential condolences.
This is not good enough, Mr President.

The Daily Mail UK. end quote.

From the other side of the world, knowing that the New Zealand security forces would have everything in hand, President Trump did the right thing. He expressed his condolences without interfering in another sovereign country’s affairs. He made it clear that he was there if we needed him, and left it at that.

But the world is full of people who blame Trump for everything, and once again, they have taken an opportunity to smear a man who has done no wrong and was not involved in the tragedy in any way. Piers Morgan, you should be ashamed of yourself.
