The French Canadian university student charged with killing six Muslim men during evening prayers at a mosque was known for far-right, nationalist views and his support of the French rightist party led by Marine Le Pen.
Alexandre Bissonnette was charged Monday with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder over the shooting rampage at a Quebec City mosque that Canada's prime minister called an act of terrorism against Muslims.
Bissonnette made a brief court appearance and did not enter a plea in the attack staged during evening prayers Sunday. Wearing a white prisoner jump suit, his hands and feet shackled, he stared down at the floor and fidgeted, but did not speak.
The 27-year-old suspect, who has espoused support for Le Pen and U.S. President Donald Trump on his Facebook page, was known to those who monitor extremist groups in Quebec, said François Deschamps, an official with a refugee advocacy group.
"It's with pain and anger that we learn the identity of terrorist Alexandre Bissonnette, unfortunately known to many activists in Quebec for taking nationalist, pro-Le Pen and anti-feminist positions at Laval University and on social media," Deschamps wrote on the Facebook page of the group, Bienvenues aux Refugiés, or Welcome to Refugees.
An anthropology and political science major at Laval University in Quebec City, Bissonnette had also expressed support on his Facebook profile for "Génération Nationale," a group whose manifesto includes the rejection of "multiculturalism."
Authorities said Bissonnette was unknown to police.
The grandson of a decorated World War II veteran, Bissonnette appears in a Facebook photo as a boy dressed as an army cadet, a military leadership program for Canadian youths. But cadets are not members of the Canadian Armed Forces and do not receive military training.

Hear it comes. The next 25 attacks will be by Muslim refugees but this is going to be the go to for the left.
LOL at far right. Besides where are they getting that from just because on his Facebook page he’s listed one of his likes as Trump’s Facebook? So he’s far right? They’re using that to say he was far right? I know people here look through his Facebook page and they could find anything political on it.
Nah. According to the Left they are All American Terrorists. Home grown don’t ya know. Problem is. There All Muslims.
Well, what about this “witness”? Enquiring minds want to know!
He’s White. It must be terrorism!
Now views matter!
When the views were those of Islamic folks, their views didn’t matter. Why it was workplace violence.
Brown skin, not terrorism. Islamic perp, not terrorism.
This guy in Canada is the guy they have been praying for for years. Finally a White guy committed an act of terrorism. Never mind the count is 20 to 1. This is really really really really bad.
One has to look long and hard to see any condemnation at all of the Islamic folks who do this. Mustn’t jump to conclusions you know.
They were under a lot of pressure. Something triggered it. They were almost helpless to stop themselves. It was the fault of others.
Ummm..there ain’t nothing further to the “right” than Islam...allies of Hitler during WW2, proponents (to this day) of his Final Solution...those stalwarts of women’s and gay rights...ummm and slave holders of black Africans to this day.
These are the people the Left chooses to champion.

Lol. No bias there.
That said. Fry him.
Other 'likes' include the Israel Defense Forces, United With Israel and Parti Québécois of Université Laval.
He also 'likes' U.S. Senator John McCain, a moderate Republican who has opposed Trump on some issues, President George W. Bush, the Canadian New Democratic Party and late Canadian politician Jack Layton, who was a leader of the left-wing NDP, so the likes do not shed much light on Bissonnettes beliefs.
German SS are said to have been disgusted by the gratuitous brutality of their Bosnian muslim allies.
So, yeah, our national socialists have met their match with these pals.
Exactly people on here looked through his facebook and see anything pro Trump on it. As far as posting political views.
Sounds like John Hinkkley, IIRC cops found neo nazi AND commie propaganda in his apartment.
copy cat crime Jus Hebdo revenge?
I smell patsy
It’s Dylan Roof — for Muslims! How CONVENIENT! #FalseFlagOnSteroids
You’re not the only one. They railroad the wrong man, they will indeed get piled on by the Islamists who will smell blood in the water.
It's much worse than that. Islamic perps in San Bernardino were "triggered" by a Christmas Party!
I hadn’t heard that, or it slips my mind now.
And don’t forget, that postal rampage in Benghazi was all due to an internet video. /s
Trudeau sure dodged a bullet with this one. He must he thanking his lucky stars the standard pattern didn’t hold and it turned out to be a white guy. Sigh of relief all across Europe as well that Trump was deprived of a big I told you so. Next comes the pile of flowers and teddy bears and the pro-refugee sniffling but on some level everyone knows this was the outlier case and that next time, and the time after that, it’ll be a Muslim doing the killing.
