btw FakeNewsMSM is avoiding the environmental aspects of the manifesto. choosing to report only the few bits that they can attribute to the “right”. and I haven’t seen any of them actually link to the manifesto itself, so people can read it for themselves.

Mother Jones is spinning it:

5 Aug: Mother Jones: The El Paso Manifesto: Where Racism and Eco-Facism Meet
It proposed genocide as a pathway to ecological sustainability.
by Alexander C. Kaufman
This story was originally published by HuffPost and appears here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.
Titled “The Inconvenient Truth,” an allusion to Al Gore’s landmark climate change documentary, the ranting four-page document appeared on the extremist forum 8chan shortly before the shooting. Authorities have yet to confirm whether Patrick Crusius, the 21-year-old Dallas-area white man arrested in connection with the shooting that left at least 22 dead, is the author.

“The environment is getting worse by the year,” the manifesto reads. “Most of y’all are just too stubborn to change your lifestyle. So the next logical step is to decrease the number of people in America using resources. If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable.”

22 Jan 2013: UK Telegraph: David Attenborough - Humans are plague on Earth
Humans are a plague on the Earth that need to be controlled by limiting population growth, according to Sir David Attenborough.
“We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now,” he told the Radio Times...

Sir David, who is a patron of the Population Matters, has spoken out before about the “frightening explosion in human numbers” and the need for investment in sex education and other voluntary means of limiting population in developing countries...
