Buffalo mass shooter's alleged manifesto leaves no doubt attack was white supremacist terrorism | CBS 17
Greatly anti-Semitic, greatly racist against people of color, white supremacist, radicalized in all the ways we can think of.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The U.S. Justice Department is investigating Saturday's mass shooting at a Buffalo supermarket as a hate crime and an act of racially motivated violent extremism.

The gunman was identified during his arraignment as Payton S. Gendron of Conklin, New York. That name that matches the name given in a 180-page manifesto that surfaced online shortly after the attack and took credit for the violence in the name of white supremacy.

Law enforcement and government officials would not confirm the validity of the document in the immediate hours after the attack. Yet, the excruciating detail provided leave little doubt of its authenticity. A senior federal law enforcement official told the New York Times they believed Gendron posted the document.

"There are certain pieces of evidence that we have ascertained in the course of this investigation that indicate some racial animosity," Erie County District Attorney John Flynn said. "I'm not going specifically talk about or elaborate on what exactly they are right now."

The document, which News 4 has reviewed, plotted the attack in grotesque detail. The writer plotted his actions down to the minute, included diagrams of his path through the store and said he specifically targeted the Tops Markets location on Jefferson Avenue because its zip code has the highest percentage of Black people close enough to where he lives.

"This was pure evil," Erie County Sheriff John Garcia said. "A straight-up racially motivated hate crime."

A diagram include in the shooter's alleged manifesto plotted a route through the supermarket.

Alexander Rosemberg, deputy regional director for the Anti-Defamation League, says the organization is still sifting through the complete document, but it can already draw some conclusions.

"Greatly anti-Semitic, greatly racist against people of color, white supremacist, radicalized in all the ways we can think of," Resemberg told News 4. "180 pages, I want to repeat, of this."

Gendron livestreamed the attack on the social media platform Twitch and had the N-word written on his rifle, videos from the scene showed. He was charged with first-degree murder after killing 10 people and wounding three others.

The alleged manifesto admits to planning the attack passively for the past few years and seriously since January. It bemoans a purported "white genocide" taking place in America and proudly brags of the writer's racist and anti-Semitic views.

In a Q&A with himself, the writer says he supports "those that wish for a future for white children and the existence of our people."

"That's what white supremacist terrorism is all about — that's what we witnessed here today," New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said. "It has to end right here. That is our message. We will continue to work at the federal, state and local level with our community partners to identify these messages as soon as they arise on social media. That is our best defense right now, as well as the legal system and the prosecution. And it is my sincere hope that this individual, this white supremacist who just perpetrated a hate crime on an innocent community, will spend the rest of his days behind bars. and heaven help him in the next world as well."


In an alleged 180-page manifesto, the Tops Markets shooter claimed his name was Payton Gendron and attended Broome CC.
However, photos in the document (below) are of sketch comedian Sam Hyde, and Broome CC public safety said they had no record of a Payton Gendron. @news4buffalopic.twitter.com/fbgSGwVP1H

One of the victims in the attack was identified as Aaron Salter, a retired Buffalo Police officer who was working as a security guard at Tops. Officials said Salter attempted to stop the attack and shot Gendron in the chest, but he was unharmed because he was wearing tactical body armor.

The alleged manifesto carries on for numerous pages about the type of gear that was chosen specifically for the attack, from his helmet and weapon all the way down to his underwear. It plots his breakfast, arrival time, live stream and getaway.

The writer says he will plead guilty in trial if he survives the rampage.

Gendron said only four words in court Saturday before being taken away: "I understand my charges."

The latest available data (2019) says this isn't true.

By race, ethnicity, and age (Based on   Table 9 .)

Race

In 2019, race was reported for 6,406 known hate crime offenders. Of these offenders:

  • 52.5 percent were White.
  • 23.9 percent were Black or African American.
  • 6.6 percent were groups made up of individuals of various races (group of multiple races).
  • 1.1 percent were American Indian or Alaska Native.
  • 0.9 percent (58 offenders) were Asian.
  • 0.3 percent (22 offenders) were Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.
  • 14.6 percent were unknown.

Fun with demographics.    

Assuming the “white” category does not include Hispanics, White is about 58% of the population so under performs, statistically speaking, on hate crime as a demographic group.    

African Americans on the other hand over perform by a large margin.    Nearly double their 12% demographic.   In fact they appear to be the only demographic group that does over perform.

Telling if one wants to analyze the entire picture in an unbiased manner.

Yep and we saw the attempt to make White Supremacy a bigger problem than it really is.    Likely the entire point of the seed in the first place.

As evidenced by the resistance here when other “related issues” are pointed out to be much, much worse.    Where are those seeds of concern?     They don’t exist.    Not from that person anyway.

So yeah, a clear bias.    A bias that is a clear and present danger to those who value truth and reality.

It’s hard for me not to wonder if this could have been avoided just by allowing this young murderer to hear voices and messages of love growing up. It’s insane that anyone could get to such a point that they would go looking for black people to kill. 

So what voices was he hearing? Where is he getting the idea that the white race is under threat, such that he is compelled to act to this extreme?

Apparently, police already knew about this maniac because he had threatened a shooting at his own high school. How does a guy like that get guns and body armor?

It’s also insane to me that this society rose up 80 years ago to defeat naziism and it still breathes in this country.

this could have been avoided just by allowing this young murderer to hear voices and messages of love growing up.

Sadly, it seems the majority of messages being pushed by right wing media are of some fantasy 'attack' on whites, Christians, Christmas and conservatives. If you only listen to or watch right wing media like Fox News you'd be under the impression that white conservatives Christians are a threatened species and continual victims of some evil 'diversity' mandate that is trying to eliminate and 'replace' them. It's no wonder that young white conservative males are taking the law into their own hands, right wing media would have them believe that if they don't, no one will, and their 'white culture' will be just another footnote in history. Much of right wing conservative media frames it as if white conservative Christians are an endangered species, that when others trying to be friendly say "Happy Holidays" it's really an attack on their faith.

So I would love it if there were some right wing conservative media sources that pushed for diversity, inclusion and acceptance, but sadly that itself is often completely counter to their expressed opinion and doctrines. It's not that diversity, inclusion and acceptance can't live along side right wing conservative Christian beliefs, no one is forcing anyone to get an abortion or get gay married or is forcing white Christian conservatives to host minorities or gays in their home for dinner, but it seems that some on the right don't believe they can live along side diversity, inclusion and acceptance as they seem unwilling to treat minorities, gay, transgender, non-Christians, atheists and others as they themselves want to be treated. And this clearly comes through in their messaging which is of course picked up by their youth. I can only believe it would be harder to shoot someone if you thought of them as an equal and valuable member of society, but if they've been described over and over again as spawn of Satan, cursed by Cain, violent BLM radicals and godless bi-coastal liberal elites seeking to destroy America, it's not hard to see where these young white racists committing mass murder are being inspired, and it's certainly not PBS and Sesame Street, it's Breitbart, Fox News, Storm Front, RT, Alex Jones, Glenn Beck and OAN among many others.
