RFA: New Zealand Shooting Suspect Praised China For ‘Lacking Diversity’

The white supremacist suspect in last Friday’s massacre of worshippers at two New Zealand mosques praised the policies of the ruling Chinese Communist Party, which has incarcerated more than a million ethnic minority Muslims in camps in Xinjiang.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Monday that her government will introduce new gun laws after Australian Brenton Tarrant was arrested on suspicion of killing 50 people in mass shootings at two mosques in the city of Christchurch.

She had earlier received an email from the suspect, warning of the impending attack and containing a confused outpouring of racist ideology, which included support for China’s lack of “diversity.”

“The nation with the closest political and social values to my own is the People’s Republic of China,” the document said.
