“Hispanic community was not my target before I read The Great Replacement.”

Louis Proyect has the Manifesto in a more readable form: The manifesto of the El Paso white supremacist killer.

The Manifesto, as can be seen, begins with a reference to the French far-right Great Replacement of  Renaud Camus, ” nearly complete ethnic and cultural destruction brought to the Native Americans by our European ancestors, but this just reinforces my point. The natives didn’t take the invasion of Europeans seriously, and now what’s left is just a shadow of what was. My motives for this attack are not at all personal. Actually the Hispanic community was not my target before I read The Great Replacement. “

There appears to be no citation of the other modern  fascist classic, which is often taken as a call to arms, The Camp of the Saints (French: Le Camp des Saints) by Jean Raspail.

This reference is only now being reported in the Francophone media.

Le texte commence par un message de soutien à l’auteur de la tuerie de Christchurch en Nouvelle-Zélande, qui avait fait 51 morts dans deux mosquées. Ce dernier avait aussi publié un manifeste, qui mentionnait notamment la théorie d’extrême droite contestée du “grand remplacement”. Le texte publié samedi exprime des idées similaires.

  3. Much of the El Paso murderer’s inspiration seems to be Trump, the NRA, the self-styled ‘pro-life’ movement, etc.:

  4. The El Paso Shooting and the Gamification of Terror

    The El Paso shooter’s manifesto and 8chan post show his radicalization and turn towards white suprematism, the Christchurch shooter’s manifesto, and the video of his massacre, likely acting as major influences in his eventual attack. The most important takeaways from the El Paso shooting are twofold:

    8chan’s /pol board continues to deliberately radicalize mass shooters.
    The act of massacring innocents has been gamified.
    This second point is illustrated clearly by some of the comments I found online in the wake of this shooting. In this discussion thread, after one anon posts screenshots of the El Paso shooter’s thread, another asks, “Is nobody going to check these incredible digits?” This statement is likely a reference to the shooter’s substantial body count. [Update: Or, also possible, a reference to the repeating “14” in a post ID, referencing the 14 words, or more benignly, “dubs” of repeating digits on post IDs]
