New Zealand mass shooter despises conservatives, along with everyone else

Rod Dreher plodded through it at at American Conservative so you don’t have to:

… He despises conservatives for having conserved nothing. “Conservatism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it,” he writes. He adds, in all caps, “CONSERVATISM IS DEAD, THANK GOD.” He also despises France’s National Front, or whatever it’s called today. He calls them “milquetoast.” He praises the emergence of Trump as a sign of hope, but mocks Trump too. He says his idea leader is Oswald Mosley, the 20th century British fascist. Point is, the idea that Tarrant has any meaningful connection to the mainstream right is nonsense. The man is true radical.

He says his aim is to accelerate history by frightening people and creating conflict. In particular, he wants to cause the US to move to take away people’s guns, and the Second Amendment supporters to respond to this violently.

He wants the US to be balkanized into warring racial and regional factions, to destroy the ability of the US to project power around the world. … More.

Reality check: Expecting a man accused of mass murder to make political sense is expecting a lot.
