Brenton Tarrant, whose Facebook page streamed a graphic and extremely disturbing live video that shows him fatally shooting multiple, defenseless people at a Christchurch mosque, had a now-suspended Twitter page in which he shared articles about terror attacks and posted pictures of weapons with the names of far-right mass shooters scrawled on them.
Although the social media page was suspended shortly after the attack at the New Zealand mosque (and another close by), Heavy was able to review and save the contents of the Twitter account, which you can read throughout this article. Be forewarned that it’s all extremely disturbing. The Twitter page contains several links out to a rambling and troubling manifesto called “The Great Replacement.” Heavy has reviewed the document but is not publishing it in full. You can see a summary and a few excerpts below.

The shooter’s Facebook page is now deleted, but the full live video has popped up on several sites online. Its contents are graphic and extremely disturbing as it shows the gunman murdering multiple people and even going back to shoot at them again. In one of the most disturbing scenes in the horrific livestream video, the shooter shoots a woman in the head as she lies wounded on a sidewalk pleading for help.

The mass murder has horrified the world and caused New Zealand to temporarily ask all mosques to close their doors.
