White supremacy and terrorism
Martyn ' Bomber ' Bradbury

The pain exposed in this dreadful atrocity against out Muslim whānau is too painful to process.

The loss, the symbolism and the deep guilt at how long they have suffered from increasing racism unheeded only makes the grief more bitter.

White supremacy not only committed this unspeakable violence, it helped aid it.

How on earth could security agencies with a combined budget of $240million manage to miss a white supremacist who crossed the border on multiple occasions plot a terror attack and no one pick up on that?

Our SIS & GCSB are supposed to protect us from this type of act, yet despite being warned about the shooter and the Muslim communities own complaints about ratcheting violence, white supremacists weren't seen as a threat and according to the last decade of SIS reports, have never emerged as a specific danger.

Compare that to the Urewera 'Terror' raids and the huge illegal spying and massive Police action against Māori training activists.

The cultural blindspot the Police & Intelligence services had towards white supremacy allowed one to commit a terrible act of racism. Those entrusted with keeping us all safe failed in part because they couldn't see one of their own as a threat.

We all have an enormous amount to learn and reflect upon here.
