Who killed the 50 Muslim worshippers in Christchurch, New Zealand, during their prayers last Friday?

The man who planned the attack, who armed himself with sophisticated gear, who cold-bloodedly shot and killed the worshippers while recording the entire horrific thing, is in police custody and has been charged with murder. Others will blame, as a UK newspaper has already done, an “angelic boy” who is just an aberration.

The truth, however, is that those worshippers were killed by politicians who spew a racist, white supremacist, anti-immigrant ideology of hate. It is an ideology that is spreading fast across the globe and which is growing among enclaves of white supremacists in SA, too.
