Witnesses said the killer was shouting racist slurs and harassing several Muslim women on the train and stabbed the men when they tried to intervene. Christian, charged with murder and attempted murder, is now being held without bail.
Even before the killings, Christian was well-known to local activists as a hothead given to threats of violence; he has a criminal record that includes robbery, kidnapping and weapons charges.
He showed up at a recent Portland-area “Free Speech” rally organized by right-wingers draped in an American flag, shouting slurs and carrying a baseball bat, which was thankfully confiscated by police. Not even the rally organizers wanted anything to do with him, and they blocked him from joining their rally.
But none of this has stopped neo-Nazi megablog the Daily Stormer from giving Christian two cheers — and a hearty “lol” — in the wake of the killings. As Daily Stormer publisher Andrew Anglin sees it, Christian was nobly “[c]onfronting the people who are killing [us]” by allegedly harassing the Muslim women on the train.
As for the men who were killed after trying to intervene, Anglin says snidely that
maybe they should have just minded their own business, huh?
The type of person who would white knight for haji women is probably the worst type of person of all.
We are being slaughtered by these people, and it is incredible that this sort of thing doesn’t happen more often.
No time in history have we ever seen any situation like what we have right now: a situation where we are told we have to be kind to and protect an invading army that is slaughtering us on the streets.
I’m not quite sure how women sitting on a train minding their own business are somehow “slaughtering us on the streets,” but Nazi logic doesn’t much resemble the logic the rest of us were taught in school.
I just hope that when he was doing the stabbing he said “THIS IS FOR ARIANA!!!!!!111”
No, I don’t really hope that. But I would lol.
I’m sure he would.
Naturally, many of the Daily Stormer’s commenters are similarly flippant about the murders.
“2 collaborators down and 1 injured, whats not to like,” writes someone called Dax.
“[A]bout the idiot men that “defended” the women, you expected sex retribution?” snorts PugKommander, “but you get a grave retribution. For every white-knight there will be a white trooper.”
Mosin-Nagant compares Christian to racist mass murderer Dylann Roof.
Hmmm…. I like this guy more than Saint Bowlcut. He went all medievel on them and slashed throats. DyRo needs to 1-up this guy and shank more n*ggers in prison lol
cuck_rogers, meanwhile, posts a meme made from Christian’s mugshot, and asks: “When are we getting the charity drive going?”
The alt-right is breeding monsters.
