As you know, a guy went and shot a bunch of Mexicans at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
The alleged shooter, Patrick Crusius, apparently posted a manifesto to 8chan, which is basic White Nationalism. He praises Brenton Tarrant, defends White people’s rights to have their own countries, etc. Basically, he said it was a copycat attack inspired by Tarrant.
But then we found an archive of what appears to be his Twitter account, and it is something totally different. It is not totally coherent.
The bio is particularly strange.
Note that he has El Paso, Texas listed as his location.
I guess that is supposed to be “#STOPIMMIGRATION”? I can’t imagine why someone would want to stop imagination.
We also have the fact that his webpage link goes to “babyfur” on DeviantArt. This is furry material.
Furries, for those who don’t know, are people who dress up like animals, pretend to be animals, and often have homosexual sex orgies (the majority of the community is homosexual). They also create a lot of art, which is what this Twitter account linked to.
Here is a short documentary to get you acquainted with the subject of furries, if you’re not already.
“Babyfur” refers to furries who pretend to be babies, sometimes wearing diapers and defecating in them. It is pedophilic.
The furry Wiki “Wikifur” has a page on babyfur:
A babyfur is a member of the furry fandom who enjoys roleplaying as younger characters. They may also be an Adult Baby and/or Diaper Lover (collectively known as AB/DLs), or is otherwise involved in Infantilism. There are many different types of furs in the babyfur community, each focusing on different aspects and roles. Like furry in general, babyfur culture involves a good amount of role-playing (either light or heavy), both online and in the real world.
The community has been growing more and more popular since the mid-to late 90’s. While the community itself is still part of the furry fandom as a whole, it is large enough to present sufficient leaders, politics and drama to give the community a nearly independent feel to it.
Role playing babyfurs will most often take on the role of a furry character in his/her infancy or childhood. Common roleplaying themes include “cute” clothing (onesies, footy pajamas, overalls, diapers) and a child’s environment such as a nursery or day care center, complete with cribs, high chairs and babyish decor. A few babyfurs lucky enough to afford the privacy and devotion will set up adult nurseries to role play as children in real life. A sexual subset of this type of roleplaying is known as ageplay.
Just so you understand, here are some of the images from the DeviantArt link from the Twitter bio.
I don’t really know what to make of all this.
It seems to me very unlikely that the same person who wrote the manifesto ran this page. And that creates a very confusing situation. Because it is very unlikely that someone has this exact same name and ran a Twitter page that was talking about David Duke and guns, and also lives in El Paso.
I also don’t really think there is a way this archive could be faked. Twitter has deleted the original page, so all we have are archives, but unless this is a troll by the people who run archive.org – which seems very unlikely, and would have had to have been thought up immediately after the event – then this is exactly what was on the original Twitter page.
If I had to guess, I would say that the manifesto was written by someone other than him, and the Twitter page is really that of the shooter. But I just don’t know.
We have an archive of the 8chan page where the manifesto was originally posted before the shooting, and we have the FBI saying that they saw it before the shooting.
You could certainly come up with all manner of different conspiracy theories here. I won’t do that – at least not just yet. I just want to get this information out there. Hopefully we can find some more information that helps us piece together exactly what is going on here.
What I will say is that although I’m not usually one for conspiracy theories, it is notable that just last week the head of the FBI came out and gave false information about the alleged threat of White terrorism, claiming that they view it as the biggest threat to America.
I will be very interested to see if the media examines the furry connection.
