New Zealand Mosque Shooting Suspect Allegedly Called Trump ‘Symbol of Renewed White Identity’ in Manifesto

Dylann Roof’s complete disconnect from reality is a product of the endless racist right wing propaganda that lies and distorts so much they no longer have any concept of the real world. People like this are one reason that motivates me to challenge propaganda, across the spectrum, and keep it real here.

A Manifesto for the Truth
by , November 04, 2013

[This article by Edward Snowden was published Sunday in Der Spiegel.]

In a very short time, the world has learned much about unaccountable secret agencies and about sometimes illegal surveillance programs. Sometimes the agencies even deliberately try to hide their surveillance of high officials or the public. While the NSA and GCHQ seem to be the worst offenders – this is what the currently available documents suggest – we must not forget that mass surveillance is a global problem in need of global solutions.

Such programs are not only a threat to privacy, they also threaten freedom of speech and open societies. The existence of spy technology should not determine policy. We have a moral duty to ensure that our laws and values limit monitoring programs and protect human rights.

Society can only understand and control these problems through an open, respectful and informed debate. At first, some governments feeling embarrassed by the revelations of mass surveillance initiated an unprecedented campaign of persecution to surpress this debate. They intimidated journalists and criminalized publishing the truth. At this point, the public was not yet able to evaluate the benefits of the revelations. They relied on their governments to decide correctly.

Today we know that this was a mistake and that such action does not serve the public interest. The debate which they wanted to prevent will now take place in countries around the world. And instead of doing harm, the societal benefits of this new public knowledge is now clear, since reforms are now proposed in the form of increased oversight and new legislation.

Citizens have to fight suppression of information on matters of vital public importance. To tell the truth is not a crime.

The premeditated hit on Dorner, as described by the two women’s lawyer. The women were inside the truck pictured above:

Jonas [lawyer for the two women] told The Times that the police officers gave “no commands, no instructions and no opportunity to surrender” before opening fire. He described a terrifying encounter in which the pair were in the early part of their delivery route through several South Bay communities.

Hernandez was in the back seat handing papers to her daughter, who was driving….

Jonas estimated that the officers fired between 20 and 30 rounds. Photographsof the back of the truck showed at least two dozen bullet holes. Neighbors, however, suggested there were more shots fired. The street was pockmarked with bullet holes in cars, trees, garage doors and roofs.

Hunting Humans in California

by PETER LEE

We know beyond any reasonable doubt that the San Bernadino police deliberately burned Dorner alive in the cabin. Should you be concerned that police throughout Southern California across multiple jurisdictions are acting as unaccountable death squads?

And of course Christopher Dorner was fired specifically for blowing the whistle against fellow officers abusing suspects. His Manifesto.

Black males throughout Los Angeles, who have any slight resemblance to Christopher Dorner are wearing t-shirts and putting up signs to profess their innocence. This after police in Torrance have already shot up two innocent women and a man who was on his way to go surfing, claiming in each shooting that they were aiming at Dorner. This murderous shoot first policy of premeditated police assassination has the region on edge.
