Buffalo mass shooter cited racist 'Great Replacement' conspiracy theory in 106-page manifesto: report​


By Bob Brigham
The suspect in a Buffalo mass shooting reportedly live streamed the massacre on Twitch and posted a 106-page manifesto pushing a racist conspiracy theory prior to the attack.
"A man has opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York while live-streaming on Twitch, killing at least 10 people and injuring several others, local officials and witnesses say," BNO News reported Saturday. "A 106-page online manifesto, believed to have been uploaded by the shooter, explained that he was motivated by a conspiracy theory that white people are being replaced by other races. In the document, he says he is 18 years old and a self-described white supremacist and anti-semite."

J.J. MacNab, a researcher at George Washington University program on extremism, studied the 106-page manifesto allegedly posted by the shooter.


"He self identifies as a white supremacist fascist with Neo-Nazi beliefs who is anti "high fertility immigrants" under the white replacement theory. There are several 4chan markers," she explained. "He states that he was radicalized online on 4chan and was inspired by Brenton Tarrant's manifesto and livestreamed mass shooting in New Zealand."
Anti-racism educator Tim Wise says those who push racist conspiracy theories are to blame for the inevitable violence that ensues.
"The Buffalo shooter's manifesto rants about immigration & white birthrates, both of which feature prominently in mainstream conservative & MAGA rhetoric. And he embraces an explicitly accelerationist rationale for violence...hoping to cause further strife and societal collapse... Those who spread these ideas are to blame, not just the ones who pull the trigger," he explained. "There is nowhere else replacement theory rhetoric and logic can lead except for violence. It is inevitable..."

Fox News personality Tucker Carlson has been the most prominent proponent pushing the conspiracy theory. In 2021, the president of the Anti-Defamation League demanded Fox News fire the anchor for pushing the conspiracy theory on his primetime show.

At least 10 dead in shooting at Buffalo supermarket in alleged hate crime

At least 10 people are dead and another three wounded after a mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, that authorities said was a "racially motivated hate crime."
The suspect entered a Tops supermarket shortly after 2:30 p.m. while wearing military fatigues, body armor and a tactical helmet and fired a rifle, according to law enforcement officials.

An 18-year-old white, male suspect is in custody, police said. The shooter live-streamed the attack on social media, authorities said.
The gunman shot four people in the parking lot, three fatally, before proceeding inside the store where he was confronted by a retired Buffalo police officer working security, police said.
The guard shot and struck the suspect, but without effect due to the body armor, police said.
The gunman then proceeded to shoot nine more people inside the store, police said.
Among the 13 victims shot, 11 were African American and two were white, authorities said.
Four of the shooting victims were store employees, while the rest were customers, authorities said. The Buffalo police officer working security was among those killed, according to a law enforcement official.
The scene is no longer active and there are no other suspects outstanding, a law enforcement official said.
The suspect, who has not been identified, will be charged initially with state murder charges and arraigned later Saturday, Erie County District Attorney John Flynn said at a press briefing Saturday evening.
"This is the worst nightmare any community can face," Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said at the briefing.

The FBI is investigating the attack as a hate crime and as racially motivated violent extremism.
Part of the investigation includes whether there may have been white supremacist ideology associated with the shooter, sources said.
Early indications are the shooter may have possessed extremist beliefs cultivated online, law enforcement sources told ABC News.
Investigators are looking at multiple online postings that may be associated with the shooter that include praise for South Carolina church shooter Dylan Roof and the New Zealand mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant, according to the sources.
It is unclear whether the suspect will be charged in federal or state court.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said on Twitter she is "closely monitoring" the shooting, and that her office has offered assistance to local officials.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz also tweeted Saturday afternoon that he had been “advised of an active multiple shooting event" at the supermarket.
"A horrible day in the history our community," Poloncarz said in a statement. "Like too many communities in our nation, we've been impacted by the horror or a mass shooting. My thoughts are about the deceased and with their families at this terrible time."
President Joe Biden has been briefed on the shooting, his press secretary said.
"He will continue to receive updates throughout the evening and tomorrow as further information develops," press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement. "The President and the First Lady are praying for those who have been lost and for their loved ones."
Attorney General Merrick Garland also has been briefed on the shooting, a source said.
"We are shocked and deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families," Tops Friendly Markets said in a statement. "Our top priority remains the health and well-being of our associates and customers. We appreciate the quick response of local law enforcement and are providing all available resources to assist authorities in the ongoing investigation."

Mass shooting at Tops being investigated as a hate crime

Law enforcement officials say the mass shooting at the Tops Markets on Jefferson Avenue in Buffalo appears to be a hate crime.
Buffalo Police tell 2 On Your Side that 13 people were shot in the incident, and confirmed that ten were killed. Eleven of the victims were African American, two are white. Four of the victims were store employees.
Erie County District Attorney John Flynn has called this a hate crime and says they have evidence that there was some 'racial animosity'.
"I'm not going to specifically talk about or elaborate on what exactly they are right now, but we have evidence in custody right now that shows there is some racial component to these alleged actions," said Flynn.

The suspect, who has been described as an 18-year-old white male, is being arraigned at this hour in Buffalo City Court. The Associated Press has identified the suspect as Payton Gendron of Conklin, New York.

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
