Suspected New Zealand Mosque Shooter Hoped to Spark Civil War in US

At least 49 people were killed in attacks on two separate mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, that were carried out by a white supremacist on Friday, officials said.

The gunman also published a rambling manifesto filled with white supremacist ravings prior to the attack. In an apparent online post by the suspected shooter, he identifies himself as a supporter of Donald Trump, describes his possible motives, his choice of New Zealand as a target, and his aim to impact the political climate in the United States.

An “attempted abolishment of [gun] rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the US along cultural and racial lines,” he wrote.
