Alleged mosque shooter's recent travels outside NZ

Alleged mosque shooter's recent travels outside NZ Brenton Tarrant, who has been charged with murder over the Christchurch mosque shootings, is believed to have travelled to Pakistan in the past year. Tarrant, 28, appeared in court this morning after the shooting attacks at two Christchurch mosques left 49 people dead. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Tarrant travelled to a range of countries and had "sporadically been in and out of New Zealand for periods of time".

The shooter ' s Twitter account, which has since been suspended, showed firearms with the neo-Nazi symbol Black Sun and the Fourteen Words ^ " Australian man named as NZ mosque gunman". The West Australian . "Christchurch mosque shooting : Footage emerges of alleged gunman".

A meme character used online by an alleged Australian attacker of the Christchurch mosque is popular among a section of Australia’s far-right community, in particular racist podcasters The Dingoes.

It was used twice by the alleged Christchurch attacker Brenton Tarrant. Writing of an upcoming attack on the forum 8chan, Brenton Tarrant used a cartoon picture of a tanned caucasian man with a wide-brimmed brown hat, holding a bottle of Victoria Bitter beer above his head. The caption read: “hold still while I glass you.”

Tech com­pa­nies scram­ble to re­move mosque shoot­ing video

Tech com­pa­nies scram­ble to re­move mosque shoot­ing video LONDON — Internet companies scrambled Friday to remove graphic video filmed by a gunman in the New Zealand mosque shootings that was widely available on social media for hours after the horrific attack. Facebook said it took down a livestream of the shootings and removed the shooter’s Facebook and Instagram accounts after being alerted by police. At least 49 people were killed at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand’s third-largest city. Using what appeared to be a helmet-mounted camera, the gunman livestreamed in horrifying detail 17 minutes of the attack on worshippers at the Al Noor Mosque, where at least 41 people died.

Far - right politics are politics further on the right of the left-right spectrum than the standard political right, particularly in terms of extreme nationalism, nativist ideologies, and authoritarian tendencies.

The same character was used on the now shut-down Twitter account @brentontarrant.

Mr Tarrant’s connection to far-right subcultures in Australia is not known but the ocker figure features commonly in memes used by The Dingoes and their fans under the hashtag #DingoTwitter, an online community that posts anti-semitic and other racist content.

The Dingoes, who do not reveal their identities, run a podcast called The Convict Report that has in previous years hosted former Labor leader turned One Nation candidate Mark Latham as well as Nationals MP George Christensen.

Following reporting on the group by the Herald in 2017, Mr Christensen said he regretted going on the show.

Man rams car into gates and shouts offensive words outside Qld mosque The man allegedly targeted the Baitul Masroor Mosque on Saturday after receiving a notice to appear for drug driving. It will be further alleged once the man was released from police custody, he returned to his car on Buckley Road and drove to the Baitul Masroor Mosque on Neville Road. Police said the man allegedly drove into the closed front gates and caused minor damage while shouting offensive words through the open driver's window towards the people inside.

This document detailed the contents of the shooter ’ s laptop which was searched by the RCMP. In addition to the repeated searches of Donald Trump and far - right social media personalities, Bissonnette searched for photos of the interior of the mosque he committed the shooting in.

"It has since been pointed out to me that they are extremely anti-Semitic, regularly make racial-based slurs and, you know, they subscribe to white nationalism...If I had known that, there is no way I would have done that interview."

The Dingoes’ twitter account last year posted an image featuring the meme character and several accounts that The Dingoes follow use versions of the image in their profile pictures.

@AntipodeanLad made several veiled references to the Christchurch shooting on Twitter on Friday, including a retweet that said: “We’re just seeing a prelude to the war that is coming.”

Much of The Dingoes online presence plays with Australiana. There are frequent references to VB beer and members of the community refer to one another as “cobber”. The alleged shooter’s 8chan post used similar language to that employed on #dingotwitter.

Last year, the National Party banned members from belonging to five far-right groups including The Dingoes, after an ABC investigation revealed extremists had infiltrated the party's youth ranks.

The group has previously claimed it is not white supremacist because it does not believe races should rule over others but that Australia should be an "ethnostate" in which all citizens are white.

A member identifying himself as "Mammon" told the Herald in 2017 he operated The Dingoes' website but feared the consequences for his job and family if his identity was exposed.

"To me, the alt-right means White identity and is an umbrella term for those groups that explicitly promote the interests of that ethnic group," Mammon said in an email.

He described it as a youth movement that was "middle class, highly educated" and said his own politicisation was based on the thought of Western European countries no longer being predominantly white.
