God is the only witness he needs, for he did what he did in defense of Christian civilization.
Killing people who invaded your homeland for the purpose of transforming your society and destroying your ancestral heritage is not “murder.”
The Australian man who pleaded guilty to killing 51 Muslims in a terrorist attack in Christchurch in March 2019 has chosen to represent himself at his sentencing next month.
Brenton Tarrant pleaded guilty in March to 51 counts of murder, 40 of attempted murder and a terrorism charge after dozens of worshippers were gunned down at two mosques in New Zealand last year.
He appeared to have posted a white supremacist manifesto online before the attack, which was live-streamed on Facebook.
At a briefing hearing in the high court at Christchurch on Monday morning, Tarrant’s lawyers confirmed they were withdrawing their state-funded representation of him.
Tarrant appeared by audio-visual link from his maximum-security prison in Auckland.
“Because Mr Tarrant wishes to represent himself at sentencing, I will be appointing a lawyer to fulfil the role of standby counsel,” said justice Cameron Mander, in a statement.
“The role of standby counsel is to assist the defendant if and to the extent the defendant wishes to accept that counsel’s assistance.”
Aya Al-Umari, whose brother Hussein Al-Umari was killed at al Noor mosque, said the gunman’s decision to represent himself was a bid for attention. “It is a tactic to want to stay relevant in the news by any means he can,” she told the Guardian.
Tarrant will be sentenced on 24 August, and faces the possibility of life in prison without chance for parole – a term no one in New Zealand has received before.
The sentencing is expected to be lengthy – scheduled to take three days – as dozens of his victims and the bereaved families are likely to give statements.
The gunman’s decision to represent himself created “an incredibly difficult task for the judge” to ensure the proceedings were tightly controlled, said Chris Gallavin, a law professor at Massey University in Palmerston North.
But he added that New Zealand’s British-derived legal tradition was “more austere” than the often fluid court proceedings seen in countries such as the United States, and there would be limited opportunities for Tarrant to speak – especially if he looked to air ideological views.
The judge “can’t deny him the opportunity to speak, but he’ll pounce on him if it looks like he’s using it as an opportunity to grandstand,” Gallavin said.
Well, he has a right to grandstand.
He was a person who stood up and defended Christianity from our ancient enemies, who are now openly preparing to desecrate one of our holiest places in Constantinople, as they always desecrate everything they conquer.
We may pretend that this conflict between the Moslems is somehow over, because we developed secular humanism, but the Moslems do not believe it is over, and when they move to our lands, they do so with the intention to conquer and subdue us.
Brenton understood that. Soon, all formerly Christian whites will understand it, just the same, when the blood begins to flow in the streets.
History will remember Brenton Tarrant as the precise opposite of what he is being portrayed as now.
History will make him a Saint.
