Candace Owens Laughs Off Reports She Inspired New Zealand Mosque Shooter

Conservative grifter Candace Owens responded to reports that she allegedly inspired the gunman who opened fire on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday, killing 49 people in slaughter that in part was streamed on Facebook Live.

In addition to those killed, 20 were seriously injured. Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s prime minister, called it “an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence.”

The shooter, Brenton Tarrant, mentioned Owens in his white supremacist manifesto before carrying out the mass shooting.

In a series of tweets on Friday morning, Owens argued that she has never created content about the 2nd Amendment or Islam. In her first tweet, she wrote,“LOL! FACT: I’ve never created any content espousing my views on the 2nd Amendment or Islam. The Left pretending I inspired a mosque massacre in…New Zealand because I believe black America can do it without government hand outs is the reachiest reach of all reaches!! LOL!”

But several of her critics were quick to call BS on her claim and provided receipts in the form of her own tweets about Muslims and the NRA, which Candance considers a civil rights group.

“in addition to being an awful human being you are a liar,” wrote one Twitter user who posted the following to remind Owens of how she really feels:

And then there’s this…

In a second tweet, Candace wrote, “To be clear: We played the ‘Candace is Hitler’ game. We played the ‘Candace is anti-rape victims’ game. If the media attempts this ‘Candace inspired a mosque shooting in New Zealand’ bit—they better all lawyer the f*ck up. I will go full Covington Catholic lawsuit. Try me.”

Owens is reportedly mentioned in Tarrant’s manifesto once, where he writes, “The person who has influenced me above all is Candace Owens. Each time she spoke I was stunned by her insights and her own views helped me push further and further into the belief of violence over meekness. However I will have to disavow some of her believes, the extreme actions she calls for are too much, even for my tastes.”

However, as reported by heavy.com, many believe Tarrant wrote that for the purpose of trolling American media. He goes on to allege that the video game “Spyro” taught him ethno-nationalism.

A number of experts on the alt-right have warned people not to take his words too seriously with regards to Owens.

NBC’s Ben Collins tweeted, “There are a couple of things in there that ring obvious bells. No joke, call somebody fluent in YouTube or alt-right garbage before writing up your pieces on this. Or just ignore it. Some of these thoughts are clearly authentic, others clear traps. It’s the nature of the chans.”

Tech columnist Kevin Roose also tweeted, “Media: be careful with the NZ shooter’s apparent manifesto. It’s thick with irony and meta-text and very easy to misinterpret if you’re not steeped in this stuff all the time (and even if you are).”

Roose added, “Seriously, this entire thing is a minefield. I am Very Online and I don’t feel 100% certain about what’s genuine and what’s just trolling/posting/media-baiting. Please be careful.”

Police said three people were in custody including 28-year-old Australian-born Brenton Tarrant, who has been charged with murder. He will appear in court on Saturday.

Shooter Jennings Breaks Down the Drinking Song

Jeff Zorabedian for The Daily Beast

Two men, a bottle of straight rye whiskey, an empty bar and the ghosts of country music legends Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard.

It sounds like the making of a great drinking song but on a recent afternoon Shooter Jennings was in Brooklyn for a concert at the Knitting Factory. Given that his latest catchy song, D.R.U.N.K., is all about the joys of a good drink, it seemed only logical to meet before the show at the Shanty in Williamsburg for a glass or two of its signature Ragtime Rye and a look inside the adjoining New York Distilling Company.

Despite being a second-generation star, Jennings rolled in with a small entourage of just two. I fixed us a couple of healthy whiskies on the rocks and he quickly settled into a stool at the edge of the industrial bar top. Despite admitting, “I’m usually Jack Daniel’s all the time,” he was up for drinking something new. “I like trying different stuff, man.”

‘Several’ People Dead After Active Shooter Shouts ‘All Jews Need to Die’ and Opens Fire at Pittsburgh Synagogue

Eight people are reportedly dead after a lone shooter shouting anti-Semitic phrases opened fire Saturday morning in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

via NYDN:

“All Jews must die!” the gunman shouted before opening fire on dozens of congregants inside the Tree of Life synagogue, according to KDKA-TV.

Police confirmed multiple casualties at the house of worship in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood, and ordered local residents to stay inside. KDKA-TV reported the eight fatalities, with authorities confirming at least a dozen people were shot — including three police officers.

The suspect, wounded and crawling, gave himself up after a gunfight with cops who were forced to crouch behind their police cars for protection during a wild shootout, the television station reported.

“My stomach is churning,” said lawyer Jeffrey Pollock, 56, who lives four doors down from the synagogue. “I went to get my mail … and saw about a dozen police cars with their lights on.”

He said there was a weekly Shabbat service on the synagogue’s main floor and a bris scheduled for the basement. The mother of one girl attending the services told CNN that worshippers fled to the basement for sanctuary as the gunshots continued on the floor upstairs.

“I’m just sad,” said Jeff Finklestein , president and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. “I really don’t know what to tell you. My heart goes out to all these families. This should not be happening, period. This should not be happening in a synagogue.”

He estimated the service held as many as 60 worshippers on a typical Saturday.

Sabbath services at the “traditional, progressive and egalitarian” synagogue were scheduled to begin at 9:45 a.m. Cops quickly flooded the chaotic area around the house of worship, with ambulances seen lining up on the surrounding streets.

President Trump weighed in on the latest mass shooting via Twitter, making a political point in addition to sending his condolences.

“Watching the details from the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue,” said Trump. “Many will tweet today that we need gun control but as always this not the day to do so. We must offer thoughts and prayers and talk about that another day. Believe me.”

The NYPD quickly began deploying heavy weapons teams, including the officers from the Critical Response Command and the Strategic Response Team, to houses of worship across the city. Sector cars will also make additional visits to the religious outlets.

The killings came after a year where the Anti-Defamation League reported a record 57% uptick in anti-Semitic incidents nationwide.

It has been a wild week. Don’t let the madness deter you from getting out to vote in these midterm elections.
