As was mentioned above, Jews were
mentioned in the manifesto, but only subtextually so. When we see something like this, we need to stop and think about what the author's intent could be possibly be. It's possible that he wrote this manifesto by and large for consumption for lemmings. What he presents in The Great Replacement is basically the barebones version of the general /pol/ talking points concerning White Genocide - our people are being replaced due to a mixture of low birthrates and mass immigration, we have also become decadent and we need to act against this to stem the tide. It's easy to digest and accept without much further research and critical thinking.
>You could claim that he was doing it for 'optics' but why is that necessary when you know you are either going to jail or get killed by cops anyway?
It would not have been optics for himself, but for what he wrote. Note though, just because I'm defending Tarrant here doesn't mean I think that he ultimately made the best decision regarding the Jews though. To me they are like a missing piece of the puzzle. Unfortunately they are a sacred untouchable cow in mainstream society, so I can see how people could possibly think like this.
>he would not have gotten the biggest White nationalist community on the internet taken down by getting it linked to his attack.
Again, that was Crusius.
> I simply fail to see what is praiseworthy about this man considering that his actions and motives seem like that of a fed who was trying to give White nationalism and 8chan a bad name right when they were steadily gaining in popularity and being normalized somewhat.
They will never be normalized so long as Jews control the mainstream media, education and government. White Nationalism is
still growing in popularity, though. Race is rapidly becoming the foremost issue worldwide, and will continue to play a role for decades to come. Whites are constrained so long as they are the target of "hate speech" laws, browbeating, attacks and anti-White media, but our patience has its limits. With the recent rioting in America Whites are very quickly becoming tired of non-Whites and anti-White propaganda. Many might not be saying it aloud yet, but I can feel it, and I have seen it in the interactions with people I know since June. If White Nationalism was no threat at all, the Jews would never kvetch about it ever, yet it's all they do. You are expecting an easy and clean route to power. It will never happen. Our enemies will not stop killing us if we play nice.
>Why would he pick New-Zealand if he was so distraught by White genocide?
I suggest you go and read Tarrant's manifesto:
"New Zealand was not the original choice for attack, I only arrived to New
Zealand to live temporarily whilst I planned and trained, but I soon found
out that New Zealand was as target rich of an environment as anywhere
else in the West."
"Secondly an attack in New Zealand would bring to attention the truth of
the assault on our civilization, that no where in the world was safe, the
invaders were in all of our lands, even in the remotest areas of the world
and that there was no where left to go that was safe and free from mass
And this turned out to be great thinking. Who would have guessed that New Zealand was full of Arabs, Pakis and other invaders! The fact that he carried out his attack on mosques in Christchurch
struck a chord with many normalfags as well.
>he also could have gained some sympathy from normalfags.
Dozens of people have been arrested worldwide for making sympathetic comments or saving the videos, many of them quite far from being "White Nationalists". Violence is unfortunately taboo in our society. Even if someone sympathized, who on Earth would they tell and not get attacked or their life destroyed?
This was first and foremost an accelerationist attack, and accelerate he did.
