Author of The White Nationalist Manifesto Blames Trump for El Paso shooting
According to the press, on Saturday, August 3, 2019, Patrick Crusius killed 20 and wounded 26 at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. I am sure many more facts will come to light in the coming months and at Crusius’ trial. But if he is indeed the author of the manifesto attributed to him, I can say three things with confidence.
First, by any reasonable definition, Patrick Crusius is a White Nationalist
- Crusius explicitly endorsed Christchurch mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant’s manifesto “The Great Replacement.”
- Crusius opposes the demographic replacement of whites by non-whites.
- Crusius opposes race-mixing and multiculturalism for destroying genetic and cultural diversity.
- Crusius wants to decrease diversity by deporting some non-whites (probably post-1965 immigrants) and racially partitioning the country into ethnostates to accommodate older non-white populations.
- Crusius believes that non-white immigration will lead to a Democratic one-party state and the permanent disenfranchisement of whites and conservatives
- Crusius fears that looming automation will make low-skilled migrants unemployable in the near future, leading to social conflict.
These are all positions held by White Nationalists. Thus, if the manifesto is genuine, Crusius is a White Nationalist.
Second, Crusius Wasn’t Crazy
- Crusius did something evil and stupid. But Crusius’s fear of white race-replacement is a rational reaction to objective facts.
- Crusius and people like him may just be abnormally sensitive to the terrible consequences of multiculturalism and mass immigration: alienation, the breakdown of community, the political dispossession of whites, and eventually racial hatred and violence.
- This heightened sensitivity to ethnic displacement might accompany a whole suite of other abnormal traits. But we dismiss people like Crusius at our own risk. For in the end, all of us will feel the same effects—unless white demographic decline and unchecked non-white immigration are addressed by sensible and humane policies.
Third, I blame President Donald Trump.
- Donald Trump was elected on the platform of building a wall on the Mexican border — which is right next to El Paso — and ending massive non-white immigration. Trump has had more than two-and-a-half years to keep his promises, and he has done virtually nothing. Indeed, the Mexican border has collapsed under Trump. More than one million illegals are expected to arrive this year. America is no longer a serious country.
- I am sure Patrick Crusius, like around 60 million white Americans who voted for Trump, had high hopes that he would restore our southern border. But those hopes have been dashed. If Trump had actually kept his campaign promises, Crusius probably would not have been driven to this desperate act.
- Trump is fond of trotting out the mothers of Americans who have been killed by illegal aliens. Because of his failure to stop the invasion, Trump now has innocent American blood on his hands as well.
- Not all White Nationalists advocate or defend Crusius’s kind of violence. In fact, as I explain in my book, The White Nationalist Manifesto, the purpose of White Nationalism is to prevent the violence that inevitably arises from multiculturalism and mass immigration.
- As I also explain in The White Nationalist Manifesto, White Nationalism can be brought about by non-violent means that respect the human rights of all peoples.
- White Nationalism is not an inherently violent ideology. The advocates of violence are merely a vocal minority.
- Multiculturalism is, however, an inherently violent ideology. Racial and ethnic diversity inevitably lead to alienation, misunderstandings, resentment, hatred, and eventually violence.
- Shooting sprees like Patrick Crusius’ are not solutions to multiculturalism. They are symptoms of multiculturalism.
- As I argue in my essay “Against White Nationalist Terrorism,” https://counter-currents.com/2019/04/against-white-nationalist-terrorism/ White Nationalists are making tremendous progress by converting people to our worldview. The more people we convert, the sooner we regain our autonomy. This is why our opponents wish to censor and deplatform us. They use every shooting spree like Tarrant’s or Crusius’s as a pretext to further clamp down on our freedom of speech, which restricts our ability to change minds.
- Censorship will not stop White Nationalism, because it is being driven by objective facts: massive demographic, economic, and cultural changes due to globalization and open borders.
- Censorship will, however, slow down White Nationalism, prolonging the inevitable violence of multicultural societies. And currently, whites are realizing only a tiny fraction of their potential for violence. This is not going to end well.
- Censorship has removed my book, The White Nationalist Manifesto, which criticizes violence from Amazon.com, which controls more than 70% of the global book market. But it has not prevented Tarrant’s manifesto from circulating globally and inspiring imitators. The Left might want to rethink that.
- I wish I could erect a wall between myself and the kind of people who go on killing sprees, but you can’t change the world from a bunker. Thus responsible white advocates need to adopt the next best course of action: (1) we must be alert to the signs of mental instability and inclinations toward violence and rigorously screen out such people, (2) we need to draw clear, unambiguous intellectual lines between the peaceful approach of the New Right vs the violent approach of the Old Right, and (3) if anyone makes concrete threats of committing such acts in our circles, we need to be the ones to call the police.
- My goal is to persuade our people that White Nationalism is the solution to ethnic conflict not the cause of it. Spree killers and the people who celebrate them are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

It would be more reasonable if guys like this targeted criminal street gangs.
Right! why would anyone go after shoppers in a big retail store minding their own business. If these sociopathic morons were honest about their intentions they would attack the gangbangers and the criminal scum. But no, it’s always innocent people in bars, malls and schools. I believe all these attacks are orchestarted by forces inside the government to fit whatever sick agenda of them. Do they want to ban guns? they have plenty of excuses already for that.
Another thing about mass shootings and the history behind them, is that they began in 1982, that’s the year they became a thing, why that year exactly? you would think that during the 60’s and the time of phychodelic drugs was a more fertile ground for these kind of things.
I disagree, it began with “Charles Joseph Whitman,” on 08,01, 1966 he shot, and killed 17 people from the tower in the University Of Texas. The thing about the 80s mass killings, is that they were called “going postal” back then (tells you how old I am).
No, Charles Whitman had a brain tumor and was neurologically deranged. He did not climb the UT Tower in Austin with a deer rifle to shoot any particular race or class. He did not “go postal.” This was not a revenge killing at the post office or a shoot-’em-up at Wal*Mart. There is no lesson to be drawn from the Whitman case, other than that people can sometimes behave erratically from brain lesions or tumors.
You can go further and make the observation about radical Islamic terrorism in Western countries that it’s never the elites that are targeted. Many of these elites would be easy pickings. They do not have much security around them if at all. Terrorists with a lot of sympathizers could also count on a lot of helping eyes enabling them to seek out targets whose addresses are withheld from publicly available databases.

What if he was an early “Manchurian Candidate” that went wrong, or maybe he was an early “Manchurian Candidate” that went right?
Excellent. Whether false-flag or desperately honest, these shooters reflect a social malaise that didn’t come from the Right.
I’m not buying it. The author of the manifesto believed that rhetoric about as much as the dad believed in the rhetoric in his book. Not much. It’s all leverage for notoriety.
A picture is emerging here of a slightly spoilt rich kid who was socially ostracized at school. Weirdo dad with a psychology practice and a new age side line. What if…he’s over heard his dad at home being two faced about low status patients and the tubes who buy into the snake oil crystal stuff.
What I’m getting from the family dynamic is a sociopathic dad who exploits patients and the kid knows.
He chose Walmart because it’s both a low brow underclass shop and it’s corporate America. He can signal his coolness by shooting up the biggest corporation and at the same time execute the underclass lumpenproles. There may be a lot more going on in his mind along these lines than straightforward WN talking points. Manifestos like the unabomber or Breiviks actually masked the intent. Tarrants and Roofs were far more straightforward because they actually attacked a target that they both claimed to want to kill. Gunning down shoppers is not in the same category really. What he really believed is going to slowly emerge. It’ll be wierder than you currently think it is. Hitting Walmart is a class war attack combined with hipster contempt for corporate greed. It’ll be worth while looking closely at the dad.
His father had some sort of ties to ‘John of God’ in Brasil. The whole thing glows to hell and back. Hard to follow up on because that whole Youtube channel got wiped. This was a guy who was running a baby farm and had deep ties to the US establishment. There is no way this can be a coincidence, it is just not probable.
I’m just thinking this is a vicious sadist motivated by class not race. The manifesto is just a way he knew he’d be instantly internationally famous. He’s trumped his dad now.
I dont belive this is a false flag thing. They would have done it way before if that was the case. I can see why people show distrust in the news. There is just to much lies. But this wide spread false flag paranoia is rather silly. I mean, why make things more complicated. The jews or whatever are not totally almighty. Thats why jews fight with such intencity.
But there is just to much lies. A video of Hitler comes to mind; ”Wir wollen nicht lügen und wollen nicht schwindeln!”. Hard to find in youtube now. ”We dont want to lie and we dont want to cheat!”.
Do you have this video anywhere?
No. It was not my video, and youtube has deleted it. Im sure it is out there somewehere.
Here you can see a small somewhat out of context part of the speech where he also says the line I mentioned. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8VOBMetbmQ
Of course it’s not a “false flag,” false flags are engineered to manipulate foreign policy. Some well known false flag operations are: the world trade center bombings; the sinking of the Lusitania; the gulf of Tonkin; and Pearl Harbor (they knew days before that the Japs were going to attack). Another less discussed false flag incident is the firing on Ft. Sumter, Lincoln tried to keep the fort open in confederate territory (under union control) ostensibly to collect taxes–Lincoln was evil. These mass shootings fall in the category of psychological operations (psy-ops), which are used to manipulate domestic policy. Some of the more famous pys-ops are: the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma; all the mass shootings in the last 30 years. I can’t think of any more psy-ops right now, but you get the idea. (((They))) have less luck with psy-ops, than they do with false flags. I use the metaphor of, false flags are like strategy, strategy is developed to win wars; psy-ops are like tactics, tactics are used to win battles. Sometimes there is overlap between the two.
Let’s not forget “Remember the Maine”.
True very true! I was hesitant of bringing that one up. I just remembered that the: civil rights movement; gay pride movement; women’s lib movement; and transgender movement were all successful psy-ops.
your article strongly implies there will be some sort of political solution.
I doubt that.
Collapse is the only way out.
I have a query. What are these “chans” that so many of the shooters seem to be inspired by? Supposedly 8chan has become deplatformed. Why are the chans supposedly connected with so much violent outcome, do you think? What are the central “wignat” bastions on the internet, in everyone’s opinion?
Anonymous image boards (usually named -chan) sometimes get unhinged posters who advocate criminal behavior or brag about some act of violence they’re about to commit, though they are always mocked as crazies and false flaggers. Brenton Tarrant did exactly this, for example, before shooting up the Christchurch mosque.
An FBI agent recently got caught using 8chan’s political board in an attempt to incite the spergs to violence, which proves what everyone already suspected. Political dissidents should shun any of these people.
The gentleman looks very Hispanic to me from the pictures I’ve seen.
Nevertheless, I agree. Some people can’t help but look into the future and when they do, so much of it is soul crushing. Future planning is a good trait, as is the yearning for solidarity of ones people.
Be it a genetic trait passed down by one who has much more of a protector/warrior class of genes (one whose ancestors defended/led the tribe), or if he was a victim of multiracial beatings/humiliation, as they seem to be becoming so much more common, he needed community.
But White communities are being torn apart, drugs are being pushed on us, and we are being systematically replaced from positions in business, academia, etc all while white kids are r*ped/killed and beaten, white men are beaten, emasculated and demonized, white women are r*ped etc.
They seek to marginalize us. We are to be made the new Blacks in a sense, though Blacks are deserving of their squalor, we are meant for greater things but we will be crushed down to our knees in this new society with them sitting on our backs as we lie prostrate.
We will become depressed outcasts for our racial beliefs, while white women will be absorbed into other tribes, get into incredibly degenerate subcultures, or suffer in the same oppressed unhappiness we are in. And in time these effects will cause most of us with these racial feelings to have less social groups, be more awkward (leading to being ostracized), and longterm not breed.
Which will have a dysgenic domesticating effect. Those left whom do reproduce will be agreeable, subservient dolts ready on their knees to brown themselves for this Tower of Babel.
And the Whites whom have money/some sliver of power will distance themselves from the rest the way an “edukated” Black man distances himself from the hood. Not that I think Whites will ever become as selfish or violent as Blacks or Hispanics, but Whites will be socially low status and something you don’t want to associate with – look no further than people trying to apologize/chum-up to minorities for being White in the wake of the shootings.
It is a long and dark road we will be going down, and to go it alone is madness. WE MUST HAVE COMMUNITY. My heart aches for the lonely boy or girl who can’t articulate why they feel so detached and unhappy. I’m sure they’ll try many degenerate things to fill that void but never feel the way they want and eventually just fade away as our story as a people ends or starts being written by something else….
I agree we need community more than anything. We are vastly disorganized and separated from real community. I myself am older and have no one at all to talk to about this subject and our problems down the road for White people. People would be aghast if they knew I believed the White Nationalist Manifesto, let alone owned two copies of it! I have no one to take to, and I would bet many others out there are in the same dilemma. Thank heavens for this site. Somehow, we will get together and say ‘NO’ to replacement, and all the other outcomes discussed in this commentary — especially our lack of adequate reproductive numbers. How can we get our young people together anymore? I only hope that the middle of the country is in better shape than the coasts, where I live.
The Midwest is equally as disturbing. Violence seems inevitable when people are so excessively censored and demonized.
I’m very curious to see how the next few years play out around this country and in Europe. Civil War, milquetoast “unity” akin to a Lethal Weapon movie/interracial buddy comedy, continued subjugation of Whites, Leftist increase in organized violence, balkanization, or secluded depressed individuals with small wealthy white enclaves while the country slowly browns as Whites become increasingly more ashamed….
A plethora of possible futures, what a time to be alive….
