New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern responded to an Islamist terror attack at a supermarket in Auckland by expressing concern about a “backlash” against Muslims.
Because that’s obviously the main concern here.
Six people were wounded, leaving three in critical condition, after an Islamic extremist inspired by ISIS went on a stabbing rampage at a supermarket in Auckland.
Police shot the culprit dead within 60 seconds of him launching the attack at a Countdown store earlier today.
The terrorist, who has not been named, is a Sri Lankan national who had been living in New Zealand since 2011.
The jihadist was known to national security agencies since 2016 and was being “monitored constantly” but was “not allowed to be kept in prison by law” according to reports.
One of Ardern’s primary concerns in the aftermath of the attack, carried out by a Muslim, was that people might be mean to Muslims.
Ardern said any backlash against the Muslim community “would be wrong,” and that the attacker “is who is responsible, no one else”.
“What happened today was despicable, it was hateful, it was wrong. It was carried out by an individual, not a faith,” she added.
In the aftermath of an attack on a Christchurch mosque in 2019 by a white supremacist, Ardern’s concern over a “backlash” against white people was strangely absent.
Due to “systemic racism” and “white privilege,” the only race it’s acceptable to blame for the actions of one demented individual is whites.
Any attacks by Muslims, despite being explicitly motivated by the ideology, are immediately brushed off as “lone wolf” incidents and any suggestion that Islam inspired them is verboten.
In the age of mass Silicon Valley censorship It is crucial that we stay in touch.
