The alleged perpetrator of the terrorist assault on two New Zealand mosques by which 49 individuals have been killed and over 40 extra injured, has cited conservative activist Candace Owens as the inspiration for the capturing.
Owens, a right-wing media character and outstanding Trump supporter was cited by 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, who posted a 74-page manifesto on-line earlier than allegedly finishing up the capturing.
In it he cites Owens as the one that impressed him probably the most to commit acts of violence. Tarrant wrote that he was “stunned” by Owens’ insights and claimed her views “helped push me further and further into the belief of violence over meekness”.
“Though I will have to disavow some of her beliefs, the extreme actions she calls for are too much, even for my tastes,” he writes.
