John Earnest in San Diego is a Brenton Tarrant copycat except that unlike Brenton Tarrant, Earnest was such an incompetent mass murderer that he barely made the newspaper. He walked into a San Diego synagogue during ceremonies, killed one person out of roughly 100 in the room with a rifle (who was so old that she probably had poor health anyway), was chased out by an unarmed attendee and quickly arrested without incident.
I’m disappointed for two reasons. One, somebody was dumb enough to copycat Brenton even with the benefit of hindsight that his killings accomplished nothing. Two, Ernie claims a Christian motivation for attempted mass murder.
Ethno-nationalism’s definitive trait is that there are no individuals. An attack on one is an attack on everybody, and you behavior must prioritize the group even over yourself. I remember a story on, IIRC, Saddam Hussein. When somebody of Sect 1 attacked somebody of Sect 2, he retaliated against a randomly chosen person or business of Sect 1 in order to discourage further attacks. That made no sense to me, punishing the innocent for the crimes of the guilty, but it worked because the sect leaders then pressured the guilty party to stop. Hussein saved himself the police work. But sometimes, the Sect doubled down on the guilty’s behalf and Hussein moved up to assassinations or confiscating property.
That’s how business gets done in a context of identity politics. It doesn’t matter what your specific target is responsible for, he’s just a tentacle of his family/clan/faction. The Ranchers tore down your fences and let the cattle eat your crops, so you steal 100 cattle as reparations. If Larry’s cattle are easier to steal than Bob’s cattle who actually did the damage, whatever, they’re both Ranchers and you’re a Farmer with a righteous grudge.
The problems with this are blindingly obvious. And yet, that’s how people want to live, from nostalgia for medieval guilds to today’s grievance-mongers who never forget a slight.
Yes, the Jews regard Christ as a heretic prophet at best. Yes, they put Him to death. No, that is no excuse for genocide. One need look no further than the Book of Acts, when Paul responded to the Jews’ hatred, lies and troublemaking by Going His Own Way rather than leading a jihad.
Don’t allow people with incompatible beliefs to have power over you, of course. But that’s very different from “kill them where you find them”. Christianity gives no support at all for ethno-nationalism. This was a hard teaching at the time. Saint Peter had to be given a divine revelation before he accepted Cornelius the Roman Centurion. The other (Jewish) Christians did not accept Cornelius, either, until Pete explained his revelation. Finally, Pete backslid against his own revelation and began shunning Gentile Christians until publicly confronted by Paul.
Ernie could profitably have read the story of Jonah, too. Forget the stupid whale, the real story is a perfect indictment of the idea that God has a favored people.
White Nationalism is not compatible with Christianity. God is not EVER on your side. You are welcome to be on God’s side but that means your loyalty is to a God of order and rules and no favoritism.
Ernie wrote a manifesto similar to Brenton’s, even less impressive and coherent thanks to a large measure of rage. But a couple excepts do a good job of demonstrating a WN invoking Christ while missing the very point of Christianity.
I didn’t archive it because Ernie is a whiner.
To my family and friends. I can already hear your voices. “How could you throw your life away? You had everything! You had a loving family. You had great friends. You had a church. You were doing well in nursing school. You could have gone so far in your field of study. You could have made so much money and started a happy family of your own.” I understand why you would ask this. But I pose a question to you now. What value does my life have compared to the entirety of the European race? Is it worth it for me to live a comfortable life at the cost of international Jewry sealing the doom of my race?
Ethno-nationalism does not believe in the individual. WNs see men as having two purposes, breeders and drones. Ernie didn’t have a wife & kids, thus he believed himself disposable, this he attacked the enemies of his ethno-group like he was supposed to.
Christianity would say instead that Ernie’s life has value apart from headcount and killcount. And it did. The purpose of mortal life is preparation for the eternal life, not conquest and winners persecuting losers. Ernie traded the immortal for the mortal, and not much of the mortal, either.
“How does killing Jews help the European race? The European race is doomed? What are you talking about? These Jews were innocent!” Every Jew is responsible for the meticulously planned genocide of the European race. They act as a unit, and every Jew plays his part to enslave the other races around him—whether consciously or subconsciously.
There’s the lack of individuality inherent in ethno-nationalism. Christ loves the idea of punishing guilt but He never imputes guilt. He’s an individualist. You die for what YOU did, exclusively.
I’m a 19 year old nursing student from the depths of Commiefornia for fuck’s sake. I had my whole life ahead of me. …
“Do you hate other races?”
I hate anyone who seeks the destruction of my race. Spics and niggers are useful puppets for the Jew in terms of replacing Whites. Of course, they aren’t intelligent enough to realize that the Jew is using them and they will be enslaved if Europeans are eliminated. Do they actively hate my race? Yes, I hate them. Are they in my nation but do not hate my race? I do not hate them, but they aren’t staying. Are they out of my nation and do not hate my race? Fine by me.
At first I despised Ernie for throwing away a happy family, young career and a warm San Diego beach. But upon reflection, this is an important indictment upon the Republican traitors. They have no explanation for this. Economically, Ernie had it all, or at least enough. No unmet material needs. No economic misery. And yet, he tossed it all for a self-delusion of racial identity. That wasn’t a stupid act, that was a human act.
As Scripture puts it, “man does not live by bread alone”. The New World Order cannot survive the lack of meaning caused by atheism. People aren’t wired that way. The consumerist culture cannot satisfy the soul. Ernie’s life was apparently prosperous and hopeless.
Even more importantly, Ernie’s motivation wasn’t victory. He did it hoping to be copycatted but by his own admission, he wasn’t trying to right any specific wrong and knew his failure/death would be completely insufficient. He tried to kill because he wanted to belong in society that badly.
Anyone who denounces violent self-defense against the Jew is a coward. He may know the crimes of the Jew, but subconsciously he knows that ACTUALLY taking action would mean sacrificing the bread and circus. It might mean that he won’t live comfortably anymore.
Gratitude is not a value recognized by ethno-nationalists. The Jews didn’t recognize it when Christian America treated them kindly in the wake of the Holocaust and Ernie doesn’t recognize it today when he gave up what God gave him to be Disposable Minion #2, Brenton Tarrant Era.
“Why so much hatred?”
There is no love without hatred. You cannot love God if you do not hate Satan. You cannot love righteousness if you do not also hate sin. You cannot love your own race if you do not hate those who wish to destroy it. Love and hate are two sides of the same coin. I may be filled with hatred, but I am also filled with love. Most people are empty inside—unspiritual and shameful dopamine fiends devoid of all love, honor, and purpose. I cannot imagine a more pathetic existence.
Love for God is obeying His commands, not genociding His ethnic group. We’re to hate evil and hypocrisy, not unbelievers who occasionally do us wrong. Notice Ernie ended with a statement implying deep dissatisfaction with the “it’s the economy, stupid” bread-and-circus diet our Elites feed us.
I wouldn’t be happy lounging poolside either, if it was only about hedonism.
If Ernie had real faith in Christ then he wouldn’t have resorted to desperate measures to prolong a personally useful status quo. If God wants America restored then it will be. If God wants America destroyed then it will be. Either way, Ernie would have the assurance of Heaven and knowledge that he was going to outlive America anyway.
More than anything I wish I could’ve seen your faces and fought alongside with you on the battlefield
My battlefield is sitting poolside, defying the enemies of Christ by being happy, grateful and following Christ’s example. That takes effort these days. Ernie’s battlefield is destroying himself in order to kill his enemies in retaliation for 2,000 year old crimes that even the victim did not demand retaliation for. How can that NOT serve the devil? How can that fail to make things worse?
White Nationalists have no God to live for and thus, their last gasp for identity in this globalist, atheist world is ethnic identity. They would rather copycat those responsible for the current situation than honor the deity whose name they appropriate… the one single deity that all SJWs, Sodomites, globalists, Muzzies, Jews and other Tolerants refuse to tolerate.
We do have a civic duty to push out the migrants, Jews and other inevitable misfits from our country. But a civic duty is not a religious duty. I don’t invoke Christ’s name when I say they have to go back. Neither will I blacken my immortal soul with murder and terrorism just to maybe hold America together.
Do us Christians a favor, WNs, and stop claiming Christian motivation. Christ would be ashamed of you. Now then, do yourselves a favor and stop doing what doesn’t work.
For a postscript,
The man who fired a semi-automatic weapon inside the Chabad of Poway synagogue in San Diego on Saturday froze, dropped his gun and sprinted to his car when he saw Oscar Stewart come barreling toward him, yelling so loud the priest at a neighboring church could hear.
“Get down!” Stewart yelled, according to his wife and others who were at the scene. “You motherfucker! I’m going to kill you!”
Others who were there later told him it sounded like four or five people were shouting. He thinks maybe an angel was standing behind him and speaking through his voice. When the shooter ran, he immediately gave chase.
Stewart, 51, told The Daily Caller on Sunday he doesn’t remember any conscious thought from the moment he heard the gun shots until it was all over — he just acted on instinct to stop the shooter and prevent him from leaving so he couldn’t hurt more people somewhere else. The Iraq combat veteran said his military training kicked in.
“I knew I had to be within five feet of this guy so his rifle couldn’t get to me,” Stewart said. “So I ran immediately toward him, and I yelled as loud as I could. And he was scared. I scared the hell out of him.”
Stewart served in the Navy in explosive ordnance disposal from 1990 to 1994, then enlisted in the Army in 2001 because of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Why can’t more Jews be like Oscar? I’d have a much different opinion of them.
“Looking back, it was kind of a crazy idea to do, but I did it.” He was deployed to Iraq in 2003 and left the military in 2004, as a staff sergeant. He’s now in construction work.
Earns his food. Served my country in the military. Okay.
When the gunman opened fire, he was in the back of the synagogue. By the time he got to the lobby, the shooter had killed one woman, blown the finger off of a rabbi, and injured two others.
“I heard gunshots,” Stewart said. “And everybody got up and started trying to get out the back door, so I — for whatever reason — I didn’t do that. I ran the other way. I ran towards the gun shots.”
“When I came around the corner into the lobby area, I saw the individual with a gun, and he fired two rounds. And I yelled at him and I must have yelled very loud, and he looked at me, and I must have had a really mean look on my face or something, because he immediately dropped his weapon and turned and ran. And then I gave chase.”
Stewart said he chased him all the way out to his car and began pounding on it — the shooter had managed to lock himself in. When Stewart saw him reach for a rifle, he punched the side of the car as hard as he could, intending to figure out a way to drag him out of the car. That’s when a Border Patrol agent who attends the synagogue came running out to the parking lot, yelling for Stewart to get down because he had a gun.
Stewart says this man may have saved his life and pointed to his use of a civilian’s gun as evidence that gun control isn’t the answer to these kinds of tragedies. Stewart was off-duty and was apparently handed the weapon by someone else on the scene.
He adopted American principles of government. His people should take notes on this guy. Oscar doesn’t have to go back. Part of being Christian means I’m willing to grant individual exceptions to general rules and sincerely wish the Jewish communities in general weren’t standoffish, Christ-hating Leftoids. Which, sadly, makes the immivasion difficult to combat. Which in turn is why our enemies are doing it.
After he sped off, Stewart ran back into the synagogue and found a woman he knew, 60-year-old Lori Gilbert Kaye, unresponsive on the floor in the lobby. He began CPR and continued trying to bring her back to life as a couple of doctors arrived and began to assist him. She didn’t make it. The two had talked occasionally, and he remembers her as a passionate and kind woman.
“She had different political views, so we had interesting discussions when we talked,” he said. “We didn’t just talk about the weather. It was kind of cool. She was a very loving woman.”
She probably had to go back but this isn’t the way I would have wanted it. Israel’s a perfectly fine, first-world nation. I hear they even pay the relocation costs.
“He was in the act of shooting when I saw him,” Stewart said. “When I yelled at him he turned and looked at me, and he like froze. And then the look on his face was one of amazement at first, and then one of fear. He saw me coming, and I was ready to do whatever I had to do to stop him.”
I like my people but white cowards are cowards. No cracker pass!
For his part, Stewart doesn’t attribute the shooter’s actions to a larger agenda and was reluctant to connect him to a larger political context. He doesn’t blame President Donald Trump and expressed hope that people don’t try to blame anyone else for the man’s actions. “He was an individual acting alone,” he said.
“If you’re ignorant and you don’t know what people are like, you don’t know that I’m a person just like you. I go to work every day in a manual labor job. I’m not some, you know – supposedly he said in his manifesto that the Jews control this and that — I don’t control anything. I go to work just like you every day. He didn’t know that.”
“If he had gotten to know me, he would know that I’m a great person, that I’m a nice guy, that I’m a very caring person,” he continued. “My apprentices — they all love me. They say that I’m the best teacher in the world, you know, that I care, that I try to teach them, and if he had known any of these people, like the lady Lori who died. She would go give Easter baskets to kids and that’s not even a Jewish thing, you know. … She was just a warm person.”
Sadly, it isn’t ignorance that’s driving the situation but a breakdown in social cohesion. A very deliberate, very calculated breakdown that is ruining everybody.
