Gilroy Garlic Festival: Another Mass Shooting by a White Supremacist
In America’s latest incident of horrific gun violence, it turns out that the 19-year old gunman who killed three people and wounded at least a dozen at the Gilroy Garlic Festival yesterday was a white supremacist.
Santino William Legan, who was shot dead by police Sunday before he could do more damage, posted online about an 1890 racist manifesto, “Might is Right or The Survival of the Fittest,” NBC News confirmed.
“Read Might is Right by Ragnar Redbeard,” Legan posted on his Instagram page. He then used a slurs against mixed-race people and misogynistic descriptions of white Silicon Valley workers, complaining about “hordes” of them “overcrowding” towns.
Redbeard, which was a pseudonym, argued that only strength and violence determined what is morally right. The work, which is filled with misogynistic and anti-Semitic rhetoric, is a staple among neo-Nazis and white supremacists on extremist sites.
