TLDW: Political prisons exist in the US. Political prisoners in the US are officially called "second tier terrorists"

These political prisons are called Communication Management Units, or CMUs.

Or that is the intended narrative.
New Zealand was the only 5 eyes country that hadn't been attacked by a radical demographic.

The motivation seems completely manufactured.

I'm not so sure. Hopefully we'll learn the truth during his trial.

If you read the entire manifesto, it's full of contradictions and crafted statements.

So, you're suggesting that these contradictions should be ignored?

6 Gogmagog (from Anglican/Celtic mythology)

This reminds me of the ridiculous threat that Dubya tried to convince the French president Chirac existed to start the 2003 Iraq war.

“Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East,” Bush told Chirac..

That's just another suspicious detail about how that all went down.

Not even the Chinese believe that it's an ideal state. It's so over the top that I struggle to accept that he wrote that. The message is beyond dichotomous.

I'm suspending judgment on his alleged political views until we can hear him state them during an interview; assuming he isn't targeted before that can happen.

More or less... They rebranded it "snu snu"

However, Futurama borrowed it from an older joke that I heard as a kid..

This linked version of the joke only says "bunga", but I always heard the joke themed as "bunga bunga".

The nickname for Berlusconi's parties makes much more sense if you are aware of the joke. I actually figured that everyone knew this old school joke.

Really? I'm quite sure that this isn't true.

Is he a soldier? The Australians don't train soldiers to line people against walls for executions.
Also, why was he executing them? Execution implies some plan or accord.

He didn't send them to the wall. Inexplicably, they all went there on this own. One fellow stood facing the wall as if he couldn't hear the shots fired, and appears to be surprised and unaware.

The story presented is:

This Australian environmentalist travels around the world saying kind things, in Muslim, and European nations.
He then writes a racist manifesto, and massacres 50 people in a neighboring island country???
Initially, there were other agents, and bombs in multiple buildings, but that complicates things, so now it's one lone super warrior who listens to Serbian nationalistic music (ww1's Gavrilo Princip comes to mind); working alone and killing more people than Rambo.

What hasn't been mentioned is the fact that this sort of attack benefits Israeli interests. It's not surprising that it's ignored by the news, but surprising that it's ignored here.

This reeks of an Israeli operation.

That's how who does executions?

Who exactly preforms executions like that?

That was not an execution, it was a massacre.

This is a very interesting comment.
