Charleston terrorist Attack: Dylan Roof Admits Killing Nine Blacks To Start A ‘Race War’


More details are emerging from the terrorist attack carried out by white supremacist- Dylan Roof that left nine African-American dead at the historical black church of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Carolina.

A survivor of the attack has already told reporter that Roof reloaded his gun five times and said “You rape our women and you are taking over our country and you have to go” before carrying out the devastated attack.

In a new development on the story, has reported that Roof has admitted to investigators carrying out the attack to start a ‘race war’ that will exterminate all blacks from the land of America.

Media reports had earlier quoted a close friend of Roof as saying that ”He (Roof) said blacks were taking over the world. Someone needed to do something about it for the white race. He said he wanted segregation between whites and blacks. I said that’s not the way it should be. But he kept talking about it”.

In a photograph of Roof on Facebook, he is seen glaring at the camera while displaying the flag of apartheid-era South Africa on his jacket. Another flag depicting that of white-rule in the former Rhodesia now called Zimbabwe is also seen.

Roof is said to have received a gun as a birthday present in April this year from his family but it is not yet clear whether he used that gun for the attack.

His victims include Myra Thompson, 59, Clementa Pinckney, 41, Tywanza Sanders, 26, Sharonda A. Coleman-Singleton, 45, DePayne Middleton, 49, Cynthia Hurd, 54, Ethel Lance, 70, Susie Jackson, 87, and Reverend Daniel Simmons.

South Carolina’s governor-Nikki Haley has said Roof should get the death penalty. She was quoted by NBC as saying “we will absolutely want him to have the death penalty”.

President Barack Obama called the attack “senseless murders” and suggested that more gun control is needed in the wake of the tragedy that has shocked the nation.

After the attack, investigators initially released surveillance camera footages and said the attacker was 5 feet 9 inches tall with light brown hair in a bowl cut. Police said he was wearing a distinctive sweatshirt and driving a vehicle with a distinctive license plate as well.

Roof was later captured in Shelby-North Carolina, after a massive manhunt. Authorities said he was arrested during a traffic stop after police were alerted some type of “suspicious activity”.

Roof had spent an hour with his victims in the church before opening fire on them. The incident is being investigated as a hate crime by authorities.

  1. Moderators … you can post this …. Readers and Posters
    Please cut and paste and learn how propaganda works. We are guilty of using it and we fall victim to it every day. BUT when we publish we do not want to fall into the trap of becoming a propagandist. That is a sure way for Anonymous to lose credibility.

    Below are a number of techniques for generating propaganda:

    •Ad homonym
    A Latin phrase which has come to mean attacking your opponent, as opposed to attacking their arguments.

    •Ad nauseam
    This argument approach uses tireless repetition of an idea. An idea, especially a simple slogan, that is repeated enough times, may begin to be taken as the truth. This approach works best when media sources are limited and controlled by the propagator.

    •Appeal to authority
    Appeals to authority cite prominent figures to support a position, idea, argument, or course of action.

    •Appeal to fear
    Appeals to fear seek to build support by instilling anxieties and panic in the general population.

    •Appeal to prejudice
    Using loaded or emotive terms to attach value or moral goodness to believing the proposition. For example, the phrase: “Any hard-working taxpayer would have to agree that those who do not work, and who do not support the community do not deserve the community’s support through social assistance.”

    Bandwagon and “inevitable-victory” appeals attempt to persuade the target audience to join in and take the course of action that “everyone else is taking.”

    •Inevitable victory:
    invites those not already on the bandwagon to join those already on the road to certain victory. Those already or at least partially on the bandwagon are reassured that staying aboard is their best course of action.

    •Join the crowd:
    This technique reinforces people’s natural desire to be on the winning side. This technique is used to convince the audience that a program is an expression of an irresistible mass movement and that it is in their best interest to join.

    •Black-and-White fallacy
    Presenting only two choices, with the product or idea being propagated as the better choice. (e.g., “You are either with us, or you are with the enemy”)

    •Beautiful people
    The type of propaganda that deals with famous people or depicts attractive, happy people. This makes other people think that if they buy a product or follow a certain ideology, they too will be happy or successful. (This is more used in advertising for products, instead of political reasons)

    •Big Lie
    The repeated articulation of a complex of events that justify subsequent action. The descriptions of these events have elements of truth, and the “big lie” generalizations merge and eventually supplant the public’s accurate perception of the underlying events. After World War I the German Stab in the back explanation of the cause of their defeat became a justification for Nazi re-militarization and revanchist aggression. Used by Hitler, Stalin and most dictators.

    •Common man
    The “‘plain folks'” or “common man” approach attempts to convince the audience that the propagandist’s positions reflect the common sense of the people. It is designed to win the confidence of the audience by communicating in the common manner and style of the target audience. Propagandists use ordinary language and mannerisms (and clothe their message in face-to-face and audiovisual communications) in attempting to identify their point of view with that of the average person. For example, a propaganda leaflet may make an argument on a macroeconomic issue, such as unemployment insurance benefits, using everyday terms: “given that the country has little money during this recession, we should stop paying unemployment benefits to those who do not work, because that is like maxing out all your credit cards during a tight period, when you should be tightening your belt.”

    •Dehumanizing the enemy
    Using words to make individuals from an opposing nation, from a different ethnic group, or those who support the opposing viewpoint appear to be subhuman or inferior. e.g., (WW2-Germans=”krauts”; Vietnam War- Vietnamese (Asians)= “gooks” “slope-head” “chink” USA- nigger for black people. Thailand- any westerner = “farang”. These kind of words try to make the target people seem less than human, worthless, or immoral, through suggestion, stereotyping or false accusations.

    •Direct order
    This technique hopes to simplify the decision making process by using images and words to tell the audience exactly what actions to take, eliminating any other possible choices. Authority figures can be used to give the order, overlapping it with the Appeal to authority technique, but not necessarily. The Uncle Sam “I want you” image is an example of this technique.

    The use of an event that generates euphoria or happiness, or using an appealing event to boost morale. Euphoria can be created by declaring a holiday, making luxury items available, or mounting a military parade with marching bands and patriotic messages.

    The creation or deletion of information from public records, in the purpose of making a false record of an event or the actions of a person or organization, including outright forgery of photographs, motion pictures, broadcasts, and sound recordings as well as printed documents.

    An attempt to justify an action on the grounds that doing so will make one more patriotic, or in some way benefit a group, country, or idea. The feeling of patriotism which this technique attempts to inspire may not necessarily diminish or entirely omit one’s capability for rational examination of the matter in question.

    •Glittering generalities
    Glittering generalities are emotionally appealing words applied to a product or idea, but which present no concrete argument or analysis. A famous example is the campaign slogan “Ford has a better idea!”
    • Half-truth
    A half-truth is a deceptive statement which may come in several forms and includes some element of truth. The statement might be partly true, the statement may be totally true but only part of the whole truth, or it may utilize some deceptive element, such as improper punctuation, or double meaning, especially if the intent is to deceive, evade blame or misrepresent the truth.

    Intentional vagueness
    Generalities are deliberately vague so that the audience may supply its own interpretations. The intention is to move the audience by use of undefined phrases, without analyzing their validity or attempting to determine their reasonableness or application. The intent is to cause people to draw their own interpretations rather than simply being presented with an explicit idea. In trying to “figure out” the propaganda, the audience forgoes judgment of the ideas presented. Their validity, reasonableness and application may still be considered.

    •Obtain disapproval or Reductio ad Hitlerum
    This technique is used to persuade a target audience to disapprove of an action or idea by suggesting that the idea is popular with groups hated, feared, or held in contempt by the target audience. Thus if a group which supports a certain policy is led to believe that undesirable, subversive, or contemptible people support the same policy, then the members of the group may decide to change their original position. This is a form of bad logic, where a is said to equal X, and b is said to equal X, therefore, a = b.

    Favorable generalities are used to provide simple answers to complex social, political, economic, or military problems.

    •Quotes out of Context
    Selective editing of quotes which can change meanings. Political documentaries designed to discredit an opponent or an opposing political viewpoint often make use of this technique.

    Propagandists use the name-calling technique to incite fears and arouse prejudices in their hearers in the intent that the bad names will cause hearers to construct a negative opinion about a group or set of beliefs or ideas that the propagandist would wish hearers to denounce. The method is intended to provoke conclusions about a matter apart from impartial examinations of facts. Name-calling is thus a substitute for rational, fact-based arguments against the an idea or belief on its own merits.

    Individuals or groups may use favorable generalities to rationalize questionable acts or beliefs. Vague and pleasant phrases are often used to justify such actions or beliefs.

    •Red herring
    Presenting data or issues that, while compelling, are irrelevant to the argument at hand, and then claiming that it validates the argument. (See Red Herring on YouTube)

    A Euphemism is used when the propagandist attempts to increase the perceived quality, credibility, or credence of a particular ideal. A Dysphemism is used when the intent of the propagandist is to discredit, diminish the perceived quality, or hurt the perceived righteousness of the Mark. By creating a ‘label’ or ‘category’ or ‘faction’ of a population, it is much easier to make an example of these larger bodies, because they can uplift or defame the Mark without actually incurring legal-defamation. Example: “Liberal” is a dysphemism intended to diminish the perceived credibility of a particular Mark. By taking a displeasing argument presented by a Mark, the propagandist can quote that person, and then attack ‘liberals’ in an attempt to both (1) create a political battle-ax of unaccountable aggression and (2) diminish the quality of the Mark. If the propagandist uses the label on too-many perceivably credible individuals, muddying up the word can be done by broadcasting bad-examples of ‘liberals’ into the media. Labeling can be thought of as a sub-set of Guilt by association, another Logical Fallacy.

    This type of propaganda deals with a jingle or word that is repeated over and over again, thus getting it stuck in someones head, so they can buy the product. The “Repetition” method has been described previously.

    Assigning blame to an individual or group, thus alleviating feelings of guilt from responsible parties and/or distracting attention from the need to fix the problem for which blame is being assigned.

    A slogan is a brief, striking phrase that may include labeling and stereotyping. Although slogans may be enlisted to support reasoned ideas, in practice they tend to act only as emotional appeals. Opponents of the US’s invasion and occupation of Iraq use the slogan “blood for oil” to suggest that the invasion and its human losses was done to access Iraq’s oil riches. On the other hand, “hawks” who argue that the US should continue to fight in Iraq use the slogan “cut and run” to suggest that it would be cowardly or weak to withdraw from Iraq. Similarly, the names of the military campaigns, such as “enduring freedom” or “just cause”, may also be regarded to be slogans, devised to influence people.

    •Stereotyping or Name Calling or Labeling
    This technique attempts to arouse prejudices in an audience by labeling the object of the propaganda campaign as something the target audience fears, hates, loathes, or finds undesirable. For instance, reporting on a foreign country or social group may focus on the stereotypical traits that the reader expects, even though they are far from being representative of the whole country or group; such reporting often focuses on the anecdotal.

    Testimonials are quotations, in or out of context, especially cited to support or reject a given policy, action, program, or personality. The reputation or the role (expert, respected public figure, etc.) of the individual giving the statement is exploited. The testimonial places the official sanction of a respected person or authority on a propaganda message. This is done in an effort to cause the target audience to identify itself with the authority or to accept the authority’s opinions and beliefs as its own. See also, damaging quotation

    Also known as Association, this is a technique of projecting positive or negative qualities (praise or blame) of a person, entity, object, or value (an individual, group, organization, nation, patriotism, etc.) to another to make the second more acceptable or to discredit it. It evokes an emotional response, which stimulates the target to identify with recognized authorities. Often highly visual, this technique often utilizes symbols (for example, the Swastika used in Nazi Germany, originally a symbol for health and prosperity) superimposed over other visual images. An example of common use of this technique in America is for the President’s image to be overlaid with a swastika by his opponents.

    •Unstated assumption
    This technique is used when the propaganda concept that the propagandist intends to transmit would seem less credible if explicitly stated. The concept is instead repeatedly assumed or implied.

    •Virtue words
    These are words in the value system of the target audience which tend to produce a positive image when attached to a person or issue. Peace, happiness, security, wise leadership, freedom, “The Truth”, etc. are virtue words. In countries such as the U.S. religiosity is seen as a virtue, making associations to this quality affectively beneficial. See “”Transfer””.

    Ad Populum –
    The Appeal to Popularity. This technique relies on unwarranted assumption. It is presenting an argument as true because the majority of people think or believe it is true even though there is no evidence the majority believe it to be true.
    Appeal to Popularity has the following form:
    1.Most people approve of X (have favorable emotions towards X).
    2.Therefore X is true.
    The Argument: Most people….know X is true, think X is true, believe X is true
    Republican Boehner: “Most Americans don’t like Obamacare (Obama’s medical care program).” (When I checked it out I learned that three polls including CNN revealed that more than 51% of Americans approved of Obama’s health care plan.)

    Appeal to Ridicule
    The Appeal to Ridicule is a fallacy in which ridicule or mockery is substituted for evidence in an “argument.” This line of “reasoning” has the following form:

    1.X, which is some form of ridicule is presented (typically directed at the claim).
    2.Therefore claim C is false.
    Examples of Appeal to Ridicule
    1.”Sure my worthy opponent claims that we should lower tuition, but that is just stupid.”
    2.”Support equal rights for women? Sure, when the women start paying for dinner and drinks! Hah! Hah!”
    Appeal to Tradition is a fallacy that occurs when it is assumed that something is better or correct simply because it is older, traditional, or “always has been done.” This sort of “reasoning” has the following form:
    1.X is old or traditional
    2.Therefore X is correct or better.

    Dialogue of Appeal to Tradition
    A. I don’t believe in ghosts; do you?
    B. Sure I believe in ghosts. People have believed in ghosts for thousands of years. My culture even has what we call “Ghost Month” so it seems clear that ghosts must exist. After all, why else would the belief last so long in so many cultures?

  2. Just a thought, but as the USA descends into a police state, do you not think it is a bit of a coincidence that Obama takes this time to push on making guns illegal? It is almost as if this nut job was planned from the start!
