The Great Replacement Theory: Christchurch and Buffalo Shooting

By: Abdullah Abdeen

 

 From Christchurch in New Zealand to Buffalo in the USA: How Does the Great Replacement Theory influence Young White Superamicist?

 

  Three years ago, two consecutive mass shooting attacks took place on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and resulted in the death of fifty people. These mass shootings came at a time when New Zealand had rarely been associated with far-right extremism. However, experts warned that extremism has been growing in New Zealand and the warning signs of an attack have been apparent. This brutal attack was carried out by a white Australian man called Brenton Tarrant, aged 28 years old at the time of the shootings. Having been arrested, the police found a 74-page manifesto entitled The Great Replacement, a reference to the "Great Replacement" and "white genocide" conspiracy theories.
