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.

State Spying and a Police who see no spying, hear no spying and speak no spying
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury:: John Campbell's remarkable investigation at the beginning of the week into a Government agency tasked with looking after earthquake survivors using corporate spies to secretly tape complaining earthquake survivors was made more important by the remarkable announcement midweek from the NZ Police that found nothing illegal in the actions of anyone involved.
Unlocked doors & blind spots: what ANZAC Day criticism of the NZ Police seems to miss
