Chris Harper-Mercer: Shooter who killed 10 was BRITISH and an IRA-supporting Nazi fanatic

Express – by Tom Parfitt

In disturbing images posted online, Harper-Mercer, who was born in England and moved to the States at a young age, posed with guns and shared pro-IRA newspaper front pages, an investigation has found.

He also posted a three-minute video on the social networking site MySpace featuring IRA fighters branding guns and wearing balaclavas.  

On his dating profile on the website Spiritual Passions, he wrote that he “doesn’t like organised religion”.

His username on the dating site was ironcross45 – a possible reference to the Iron Cross, a German military symbol reintroduced by the Nazis.A user with the same name spent almost £100 on a Nazi SS officers’ cap on a different website more than two years ago.

“i will continue to make purchases from this company. i am very impressed with there products/service and highly recommend them. thanks Steve”

It is not known whether Harper-Mercer attended Umpqua Community College in Oregon, where the shooting took place.But he was listed as a “production assistant” in a Facebook post promoting a performance of a Noel Coward play by the school’s drama group.

He was armed with three handguns and an AR-15-style long gun, and was killed after a shootout with police on the scene yesterday, according to reports.

In his dating profile he described himself as “Not Religious, Not Religious, but Spiritual”.He described himself as a “lover, conservative, professional, intellectual, introvert” – and under his interests listed the “internet, killing zombies, movies, music, reading”.

Harper Mercer also said he was “mixed race”, did not drink and was a “conservative, Republican”.

He also appeared to write a blog post hosted on a torrent site about Vester Flanagan, who shot two journalists live on air in late August.He reportedly wrote: “I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are.

“A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day.

“Seems the more people you kill, the more your’re [sic] in the limelight.”

The most recent torrent uploaded by the account username was a BBC documentary about the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting, according to Gawker.

Hours before the attack, an anonymous poster on the message board 4Chan, warned: “Some of you guys are alright. Don’t go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest.”

Oregon is a state in the Pacific northwest of the United States.

Another post read: “Happening thread will be posted tomorrow morning. So long space robots. Will post again am. 10 min countdown. Won’t say more to much to prepare.”

Harper-Mercer’s devastated family have reacted to the news, saying they are “shocked”.

Close to tears, his father said: “I am just as shocked as everybody about what happened today.

“i can’t answer any questions right now and I don’t want to answer any questions right now. Obviosuly it’s devastating for me and my family.”

His step-sister said: “I am still in shock. All he ever did was put everyone before himself.

“He wanted everyone to be happy, no matter if he was sad or mad he would always try to cheer up everybody.”

Clearly distressed and with her head in her hands, she added: “It doesn’t sound like something he would go through.”

  1. Crossed posted because of the nazi reference.
    Who waves holoco$t and nazi all over the place?

    sukkot is currently being celebrated:

    2015: September 27 (at sundown) – October 4


    “Regarding Loughner’s reported worship of Satan, after carefully examining the photos of what the New York Daily News called a “shrine” to the devil, I realized that once again the media only told half the truth.

    This “shrine,” made up of a brick altar and a tent-like surrounding structure, appears to be what the Jews call a “Sukkot booth.” It is part of the Jews’ seven-day Feast of Booths (also called the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot).

    During Sukkot, the Jews build fragile outdoor “booths,” or shacks, to resemble the ancient, primitive housing of the Jewish tribes. They set up an altar and “invite” seven of Israel’s long-dead patriarchs to come and be their guests. Of course, this is necromancy, communication with the dead. The book of Ecclessiastes is read and the themes of death and vanity (“all is vanity”) are emphasized. Thus we find the death skull and candles displayed on the altar of the Sukkot booth in the Loughner’s backyard.”

    Loughner family are fanatical Jews who go to extreme lengths in celebrating Sukkot.
