Just several days after being captured and confessing to the murders of nine people in Charleston, South Caroline, Dylann Roof’s racist and anti-Semitic manifesto has been discovered online.
A self-described white supremacist, Roof, 21, wrote that he identifies more with the majority of Jews, who he made sure to point out were white, than African Americans. However, he made clear that the “Jewish identity” should be destroyed.
“Unlike many White naitonalists, I am of the opinion that the majority of American and European jews are White (sic),” he wrote on lastrhodesian.com. “In my opinion the issues with jews is not their blood, but their identity. I think that if we could somehow destroy the Jewish identity, then they wouldnt cause much of a problem (sic).”
“As an American we are taught to accept living in the melting pot, and black and other minorities have just as much right to be here as we do, since we are all immigrants,” he wrote. “But Europe is the homeland of White people, and in many ways the situation is even worse there. From here I found out about the Jewish problem and other issues facing our race, and I can say today that I am completely racially aware.”
Expanding on his thoughts regarding Jews, Roof continued: “Just like n******, most Jews are always thinking about the fact that they are jewish. The other issue is that they network. If we could somehow turn every jew blue for 24 hours, I think there would be a mass awakening, because people would be able to see pliantly what is going on (sic).”
Roof ended his tirade by adding, “I dont pretend to understand why jews do what they do. They are enigma (sic).”
On Wednesday, Roof opened fire at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, a historic African American church, killing the church’s leader and eight worshippers. In his confession to police, Roof admitted the attack was his attempt to “start a race war” in the US.
The website containing Roof’s manifesto also has several photos of the killer and downloadable documents written by Roof on his thoughts regarding other ethnic minorities in the US, such as East Asians and Hispanics.
