Photos of Charleston killer found online with racist manifesto

New York, June 21 (IANS/EFE) The US media spread the news about a website found with photos of confessed mass murderer Dylann Roof along with a racist manifesto that he might have written.

According to the daily New York Times on Saturday, it is uncertain whether the manifesto was written by Roof, the confessed perpetrator of the fatal shootings in an African American church in Charleston, South Carolina.

The site is dubbed the “Last Rhodesian”, a reference to the former British colony in Africa called Rhodesia until 1980, when it achieved independence under the name Zimbabwe and was never again ruled by a white minority.

The website includes a photo of Roof pointing a pistol at the camera, another in which he is armed and carrying a Confederate flag, and yet another in which he is seen burning an American flag.

In another picture, a .45-caliber Glock pistol is seen, the same kind that was used by Roof to kill nine people attending a church service in Charleston.

The website also provides access to a text in which the author expresses ideas of racial hatred.

In one of the last paragraphs, the author maintains that he chose Charleston for the shooting “because it is the most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country”.

He also regrets that in his region there are “no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the Internet”.

“Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me,” he said.

The text is neither signed nor dated, but at the end the author, who describes himself as a “white nationalist” begs pardon for any typographical errors he might make, because, he said, “at the time of writing I am in a great hurry”.

According to the Times, which, together with the New York Post, includes links to the site, the text was last modified at 4.44 p.m. last Wednesday, the same day Roof massacred nine black worshippers at the church in Charleston.

The same daily said the website was first registered on February 8 to Dylann Roof, a resident of Eastover, South Carolina, exactly the name and place of residence of the Charleston killer.

The following day the registration information was intentionally changed, though it has been checked by the Times.

The same daily said that one Jacob Meek, a friend of the killer, said that some of the references in the text indicate that the confessed murderer was the same person who wrote the racist manifesto and that he is convinced that the website is Roof’s.


  1. Where is our friend AS Mathew ? I guess he is still worried about the ‘yoga offensive’ and imaginary attacks on minority under BJP rule.

    • He is busy searching the web for some remote negative news on the Pradhana sevaka. He does not have the yoga to appreciate the good work of our PM. He is deep frozen in the negative mind set when he left India in 1964 from Kozhikode taking devious routes finally entering US of A through Mexican border. [Mathew chapter 1 verse 5]

      • Bharata Varsha or Bharat as it is called comprised of India, Pakistan, Bangal Desh, Nepal and extended up to Burma. Years of divisions engineered by the invaders and your ancestors has left what it is today. Nepal has more Hindu percentage of population than in India for your information. So the question of real and imaginary land do not exist. Is your promised land fulfilling your dreams by the way?

  2. Dear readers,

    While our Atheist Mr.Original is know for selective slur and abusiveness, he must ask PM Modi’s Home Ministry to investigate the link with Norway mass killing.

    Norwegian mass killer’s manifesto hails Hindutva

    Goals of Indian Hindu nationalists were identical to Justiciar Knights, Anders Breivik claimed

    Breivik lists the websites of the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the National Volunteers’ Organisation, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad as resources for further information.

    He uses the work of historians K.S. Lal and Shrinandan Vyas to point to the threat posed by Islam to Europe, saying their work has established that millions of Hindus were killed in a genocide during 1000-1525 AD. N.S. Rajaram, another historian, is quoted as saying India’s “political class have been so debilitating that they continue to live in a state of constant fear.”

    Breivik’s manifesto envisages that this future organisation would hand out a “multi-cultural force medal,” which would be awarded for “military cooperation with nationalist Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish and/or atheist forces (non-European) on Hindu, Buddhist or Jewish territory. These efforts must be directed against Jihadi or cultural Marxist forces, personnel or interests.”

    The medals would include a “Liberation of India Service Medal,” which would be awarded for “assisting Indian nationalist forces to drive out Islam from Indian territory.

    As 33% of voters have seemingly voted for PM Modi as new Hindu king after 1000 years of rule by both Muslim and Christian invaders, the goals of realization seems nearing for RSS through its newly created “American India Public Affairs Committee” simillar to Jews lobby behind US senate “American Israel Public Affairs Committee” merging nearly 1000 small umbrella organisation. This may be the reason PM Modi is more reluctant to visit US for thanksgiving for his RSS community who appointed APCO worldwide PR consultant to rebranding his image post Godhra and personally looking after media to finance of 2014 parlimentarian elections. The goals of Hindu Mahasabha is going to realization once PM Modi visit to Israel on the advice of American intellectual committee.

    Surely the first Indian PM ever to be visited Israel to annoy its Muslim Middle East partner.The foreign policy is going to backfire which Indian community is largely depend upon.
