New Zealand Bans Brenton Tarrant’s Self Defense Manifesto, Citizens Told to Destroy Copies

Brenton Tarrant’s GoPro footage showing him bravely defending the White race from Moslem terrorists and his self defense manifesto are now two of the most banned pieces of content in the history of the Internet.

New Zealand’s Islamic government just issued a new decree banning Brenton Tarrant’s self defense manifesto entitled “The Great Replacement.” This comes after they issued a previous decree banning his very funny self defense video that he shot inside the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch. The government for whatever reason did not seem to appreciate Mr. Tarrant’s witty humor or the epic soundtrack contained in the video. This despite the video receiving widespread critical acclaim across the Internet. In case you haven’t seen them, the manifesto and the footage can both be downloaded here.

Government officials have told citizens who possess a copy of the manifesto that they must immediately destroy it. The manifesto is being falsely described by mainstream news organizations as “angry” despite it being a very humorous, insightful and informative document.

USA Today:

New Zealand’s government on Saturday banned a racist, angry manifesto written by the suspected gunman of two recent mosque shootings in Christchurch that killed 50 people, arguing that the 74-page document “promotes murder and terrorism.”

New Zealand’s Office of Film and Literature Classification issued a statement officially classifying the manifesto – titled “The Great Replacement” and authored by the alleged 28-year-old shooter – “objectionable” under the country’s law.

“There is an important distinction to be made between ‘hate speech’, which may be rejected by many right-thinking people but which is legal to express, and this type of publication, which is deliberately constructed to inspire further murder and terrorism,” New Zealand’s Chief Censor David Shanks said in a statement.

“It crosses the line.”

The alleged gunman, a self-described white supremacist, is accused of fatally shooting 50 people on March 15 in a rampage in two mosques that he live video-recorded on a helmet he wore. He linked the manifesto on his Twitter account and mailed a copy to the office of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

The country’s government banned the reported gunman’s 17-minute video earlier in the week as well as semi-automatic rifles.

Under the New Zealand law, it is considered an offense to “posses or distribute” objectionable materials such as the manifesto. People who have downloaded the document, or printed it out, should “destroy any copies,” officials said. 

“New Zealanders can all play a part in denying those who exhort hatred, killing and terror. If you have a copy of this publication, delete or destroy it,” Shanks said. “If you see it, report it. Do not support the murderous objectives of its author by republishing or distributing it.”

Banning materials like this is almost always counterproductive because it makes people curious. They immediately want to see for themselves why the content was banned. This is especially true with political content.

But it is obvious that New Zealand’s political leadership completely disregarded everything that Tarrant wrote in his manifesto. He specifically hoped to accelerate political conflict by getting the political left to overreach. They have done just that by openly pushing Islam on the population. Same can be said about their draconian censorship agenda and the gun ban. They’re even threatening teenagers with lengthy prison sentences for possessing and sharing Tarrant’s GoPro footage. All of this is completely insane. These are things that are certainly going to make many White New Zealanders feel uncomfortable and it fits right in with Tarrant’s desire to accelerate a political clash.

Remember, the Al Noor mosque was basically an Al-Qaeda recruitment center. Tarrant’s action resulted in New Zealand’s political leadership openly siding with a mosque linked to a global Islamic terrorist network. The insanity of this is not going to be lost on a significant percentage of the population.

Ultimately, it is pretty dumb of them to try and ban these materials. New Zealand is a small country with a population of a little under five million people. They do not have the power or the resources to ban any piece of content from the Internet. All this is going to do is result in more people reading Tarrant’s manifesto. It doesn’t matter if they threaten people with prison or even death. More people will be reading it thanks to their attempts to ban it.
