Dylann Roof Found Guilty In Emanuel AME Shooting

The verdict is no real surprise.

Dylann Roof eagerly confessed to the murders in Charleston. His defense team didn’t even contest that he was guilty of the crime and has chosen instead to put up a fight during the sentencing phase of the trial in January:

“CHARLESTON, S.C. — Dylann S. Roof, a self-radicalized young white supremacist who killed nine black parishioners last year when he opened fire during a long-planned assault on Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, was found guilty by a federal jury here on Thursday.

Mr. Roof, 22, stood, his hands at his side and his face emotionless, as a clerk read the verdict aloud in Federal District Court, where he had been charged with 33 counts, including hate crimes resulting in death. …”

Several of us who were smeared by the Lügenpresse during that incident have been closely monitoring the trial. Fortunately, multiple reporters live tweeted the #RoofTrial and we have gained a better understanding of how this happened.

At the time, Dylann Roof gave the following “explanation” for his actions in his manifesto which was overlooked in the frenzy of witch-hunting that followed:

“To take a saying from a film, “I see all this stuff going on, and I dont see anyone doing anything about it. And it pisses me off.”. To take a saying from my favorite film, “Even if my life is worth less than a speck of dirt, I want to use it for the good of society.”.

I have no choice. I am not in the position to, alone, go into the ghetto and fight. I chose Charleston because t is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me. …”

Why is this so strange?

It’s strange because the SPLC itself told Chuck Thompson in his book Better Off Without ‘Em that, “The big exception is South Carolina, which is by far the number one state for hate groups on a per capita basis. We figure that every year and it is always South Carolina.”

“Every year it is always South Carolina” … number one for organized hate groups, and yet, Dylann Roof complained in his manifesto that there were “no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything” in his state except talking on the internet. But that wasn’t exactly true. There are active Klan, Neo-Nazi, White Nationalist, Southern Nationalist and skinhead groups in South Carolina.

Who are the REAL KKK and skinheads that Dylann Roof couldn’t find in South Carolina? It turns out he was really into Hollywood movies like American History X, Romper Stomper, Made in Britain, and Skinheads USA. He had a book on the KKK in his car when he was arrested in North Carolina. The line in his manifesto about giving his life for “the good of society” came from a Japanese movie called Himizu.

Dylann Roof sat there the night before the Charleston shooting in his father’s house watching Made in Britain over and over again. In all his writings and the confession video he talks about being angry that none of the KKK and skinheads he saw in the movies existed in real life. He felt obligated to go out and “do something” to make reality reflect the Hollywood version of the KKK and skinheads. He had two suicide notes in his car and said he planned to commit suicide as soon as he was confronted by police. It sounds like he wanted to reenact the ending of the Hollywood movie Higher Learning. Instead, he chickened out and surrendered. In the confession video, he said he never talked to anyone about race or politics because he was afraid people would disagree with him.

Roof was taking his cues from Hollywood movies and acting on a grand stage. He was disappointed with the groups in his own state. They didn’t live up to his expectations.

    I don’t know. The victim never lies, you know. And Thornton maintained they were racists.

    “If you could refute any assertion I made you would.”

    If you knew what the word “refute” meant, you might be worth rebutting.

    Roof shouldn’t have been tried by a federal jury, and certainaly not on “civil rights” grounds. He should have been tried by a South Carolina jury on nine counts of murder.

    With or without franks?

  • With, of course.

    (Rolls eyes). There is nothing weird about a website being hosted on a Russian server, dumbass. If you would take 30 seconds or so on Google you would learn that before adding that detail to your conspiracy theory. A lot of people use them. They are cheap, many are free. You get a lot of bandwidth, etc. And you do not need to speak any Russian to do so.

    Lol, obviously you need to get up to speed on modern computing and networking, etc. You can start by Googling Cloud computing and cloud hosting, lol.

    Oh my God! I just found a Made in China Tag on an item I have in hand! LOL.

    Seriously guy, wake up, it isn’t 1950. But I have to say, you are making me have a good belly laugh with the Russian server thing. That is not only not surprising, it’s not even noteworthy. But you not knowing any better and being all worked up about it certainly is, lol.

  • SLCain

    Indeed. Just as I suspected.

    There really aren’t any “good” targets. It’s the easiest thing in the world to spin shooting people as the act of a nutcase – namely, because it basically is. Taking hostages would make much more sense. At least there’s a chance that you’ll be permitted to share your message, especially if you agreed to release them pending being granted an opportunity to share your message.

    Just after Roof was apprehended for his crime, Haley and all the other opportunists went on a cultural lynching party after the old South — Confederate Flag, memorials, white Southern pro-Confederates, etc. Since Roof was proven to be the killer and the Confederacy had nothing to do with this crime which was inspired by this PC society/msm focusing only on white on black crimes to keep the myth going that all blacks suffer from white oppression and must rely on the DNC and the Left to protect them in order to get that 90% Dem black vote — then impeach Haley and put the flag back up in SC and restore all the other victims of these cultural lynching events that have taken place before Roof even went to trial…
