Livestream, a young Aussie killer invades a set of Muslim mosques and commits a massacre of men, women and even children.

The man publishes a maniacal manuscript decrying Muslim “invaders” of Europe, while slaughtering Muslims at prayer and in meditation.

Online, millions viewed this carnage live as it happened in Christchurch, a city in New Zealand.

The author of this horror was reportedly a “white nationalist” who expressed opposition to Muslim immigrants.

New Zealand, a nation mostly composed of two islands in the South East Pacific Ocean, is mostly white people from Britain, who number in the millions. The Maori, Indigenous people who are of Polynesian ancestry, have lived there for at least 500 years before European arrival, with the 18th century exploration of British Captain James Cook.

As a result of European/Maori warfare, the Maori were reduced to less than 100,000 souls around the time of the U.S. Civil War.

Today, there are perhaps 200,000 Maori survivors. So who are the invaders?

New Zealand now has a population of about 4.5 million, 71 percent of which is of European ancestry.

Kinda makes you wonder: Who invaded whom?

At last count, some 50 Muslims were slain, and an Australian man in his 20s is charged in connection with what we call the Christchurch Massacre.
