"Anon" spouting white nationalist conspiracy theories kills 2 in synagogue shooting

The gunman who killed two people near a synagogue in Halle, Germany, on Wednesday appears to have filmed his attack, and the footage was uploaded to Twitch, a platform popular with video game users.

The video shows the alleged suspect, a young white male, driving to his chosen location, alone. He speaks to a camera, positioned on the passenger seat, and says, in English, “Hi, my name is Anon,” using a name that 4chan and 8chan users often call themselves. “I think the Holocaust never happened.”

The gunman goes on to spout anti-Semitic and white nationalist conspiracy theories, including blaming feminism for the “decline of birth rates in the West.”

German authorities announced Wednesday they’re investigating the possibility that the attack was ideologically motivated by far-right extremism but have yet to confirm a motive. Police have arrested one suspect, but it’s not clear whether they arrested the person who recorded the video. Police also believe other suspects could be involved, and a manhunt is still underway. Law enforcement in Halle referred VICE News inquiries to Germany’s federal prosecution office, which did not respond to requests for comment.

Rise in hate, white nationalism, conspiracy theories and far right ideals is spreading all throughout Europe. It's scary what is happening.
