Buffalo Mass Shooter’s Manifesto Complicates Ukraine War Narrative
The On-Again, Off-Again Neo-Nazi Threat

If you had told me ten years ago that the bi-partisan foreign policy of the American elite would be to risk nuclear war with Russia so Ukrainian neo-Nazis could control the Donbas, I would have thought: very unlikely.
After warning of the threat of Neo-Nazism constantly during the 2016 Trump campaign and during Trump’s term in the White House, both organizations were now silent about American support for Neo-Nazi military units in Ukraine:
If you happened to be alive during the years of 2016 to 2020, you can probably recall the routine issuance of frantic bulletins that “Nazis” were suddenly on the march in the US. Not just that some ludicrous, ragtag group of self-identified Nazis could be occasionally spotted in the wild — which had always been a somewhat regular, albeit freakish occurrence. Rather, the idea was that full-bore ideological “Nazism” had surged as a genuinely formidable political force, and everyone needed to be extremely terrified of this. […]
After having spent such enormous effort warning Americans that their country was being overwhelmed by Nazis, you’d have thought it would be a no-brainer for these groups to spring immediately into action last month and sound the alarms again. Because another “incident” took place that was right up their alley: an honest-to-god pro-Nazi rally. In the middle of New York City. Thanks to footage captured by journalist Elad Eliahu, we know that on April 23 in Downtown Manhattan, a group of rally-goers gathered to chant — with total, uninhibited exuberance — “Azov! Azov! Azov!”
Eliahu told me the rally was organized by a group called “Razom for Ukraine,” which has held regular protest actions in the city since the war began, including to demand a No Fly Zone. But on this occasion, they were focused on rapturous praise for “Azov.”
In case you still need a primer on what “Azov” refers to, you may want to consult The Nation magazine, which has been unique among US left-liberal media over the last several years in still allowing a modicum of countervailing thought. And so The Nation is one of the vanishingly few outlets that continues to plainly describe Azov — i.e., the Battalion of the Ukraine military currently fighting in the war — as an “outright Neo-Nazi group.”
The Buffalo Mass Shooter’s Inconvenient Manifesto
The apparent perpetrator of a twitch-streamed mass shooting in Buffalo, New York that left ten dead, Payton Gendron, published a 180-page manifesto online prior to committing the atrocity. Our friend Emil Kirkegaard uploaded a copy of it.
The first thing you’ll notice if you click that link is the symbol at the top, the Sonnenrad, or “Black Sun” appropriated by Nazis. Inconveniently for the supporters of the Current Thing, it has also been appropriated by some of the Ukrainian troops the United States is currently supplying with arms.
The suspected Buffalo shooter’s manifesto features the Black Sun symbol used by the Azov Battalion in Ukraine.
A note about the claim that New Zealand mass shooter Brenton Tarrant had trained with Azov: I don’t know if that has been confirmed, but it has been suspected:
In the wake of the New Zealand mosque attacks, links have emerged between the shooter, Brenton Tarrant, and a Ukrainian ultra-nationalist, white supremacist paramilitary organization called the Azov Battalion. Tarrant’s manifesto alleges that he visited the country during his many travels abroad, and the flak jacket that Tarrant wore during the assault featured a symbol [the Black Sun] commonly used by the Azov Battalion.
The establishment response to Gendron’s manifesto has been to blame Tucker Carlson’s discussion of demographic change, despite the unlikelihood of a teenager getting his opinions from cable news shows…
