First off, I'd like to say: /mlpol/ is a board of peace. I do not encourage or condone any violence with this post.
The latest mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, has kept me up with questions. They are, mainly, what benefit (if any) does Crusius's action bring toward our cause, and whether an alternative exists. His stated intent in his (poorly written) manifesto was to bring awareness to mass immigration and to encourage a Race War. However, I don't believe this will have positive ramifications that outweigh the negatives. First off, immigration awareness in the U.S. is already at a high and I don't believe it will bring quislings to our side. As for those who believe in "legal immigration," this will only serve to distance them away from anti-immigration absolutists due to perceived similarity in thought with "terrorists." Granted, there may be exceptions, but I can't imagine anyone we want to join us being swayed and saying, "the shooter has a point." It's possible to turn the situation around by showing how alienation of whites and imminent replacement has led to frustration and violence, but it's inherently defensive and apologetic, as is pointing out how most mass shooters are not actually white (https://centerforinquiry.org/blog/who-are-mass-shooters-mass-shooter-demographics-part-2/
). Like the "shootings happen in gun-free zones" argument, it's logically sensible but emotionally weak, and therefore it will always lose in the long-term.
He also directly encouraged a race war, but that's also hardly helpful. WNs have more numbers than we've ever had, but we're still a tiny minority, certainly (far) fewer than 1 in 10 whites. Even if every single one became psychotic, armed up and went on a rampage at once, worse than nothing would be accomplished because the movement would be destroyed. It would be mostly whites vs. whites, non-whites would be only slightly impacted, and the ruling elite would be untouched. Those who are vaguely sympathetic towards us would at the very least avoid us and would probably shoot at us, because no one likes violent gunmen (for good reason). It would be nigh-impossible to obtain new followers at that point because attacking unarmed and generally passive groups is crossing the line for virtually everyone. Same if it was Post too long.
