While the Republicans continue to feign bafflement at why Dylann Roof murdered nine people at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, it seems Roof left behind a manifesto (as is so often the case — see Elliott Rodgers, Anders Brevik and many others) proving that it was an act of white supremacist terrorism. Some highlights:
“Say you were to witness a dog being beat by a man. You are almost surely going to feel very sorry for that dog. But then say you were to witness a dog biting a man. You will most likely not feel the same pity you felt for the dog for the man. Why? Because dogs are lower than men. This same analogy applies to black and White relations.”…
“Segregation was not a bad thing. It was a defensive measure. Segregation did not exist to hold back negroes. It existed to protect us from them. And I mean that in multiple ways. Not only did it protect us from having to interact with them, and from being physically harmed by them, but it protected us from being brought down to their level. Integration has done nothing but bring Whites down to level of brute animals. The best example of this is obviously our school system.”…
“Anyone who thinks that White and black people look as different as we do on the outside, but are somehow magically the same on the inside, is delusional. How could our faces, skin, hair, and body structure all be different, but our brains be exactly the same? This is the nonsense we are led to believe. Negroes have lower Iqs, lower impulse control, and higher testosterone levels in generals. These three things alone are a recipe for violent behavior.”
Yeah, those blacks are so terribly violent…says the guy who just murdered nine black people.
“I have no choice. I am not in the position to, alone, go into the ghetto and fight. I chose Charleston because it is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.”
But “we’ll never understand what motivates anyone to enter one of our places of worship and take the life of another,” right Gov. Nikki Haley? It must be because he just hates religious freedom, right Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee? It’s because he was on drugs, right Rick Perry? I’m sure it’s all Obama’s fault. As the Republicans try to blame it on everything but racism, the killer has made it crystal clear that it was exactly that.
