Dylann Roof Suffered From A Host of Mental Disorders

Did you hear the news?

“Acting as his own lawyer, Dylann S. Roof, the young white supremacist convicted of killing nine African-American worshipers at a church in Charleston, S.C., stood before a federal jury last month and insisted that “there’s nothing wrong with me psychologically.” But documents unsealed this week reveal that less than two months earlier a court-appointed psychiatrist had found him to have a host of disorders and that several months before the June 2015 massacre Mr. Roof had described himself as deeply depressed. …

In a motion filed shortly before the trial began in December, Mr. Roof’s lawyers asked for special scheduling accommodations like shortened court days and frequent breaks. That motion cited findings by Dr. James C. Ballenger, the court-appointed psychiatrist who evaluated Mr. Roof in jail in mid-November, that he “suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder, a Mixed Substance Abuse Disorder, a Schizoid Personality Disorder, depression by history, and a possible Autistic Spectrum Disorder.”

The document also revealed that the defense offered evidence of an autism diagnosis at a competency hearing on Nov. 21 and 22. The hearing also featured testimony “that the defendant’s high IQ is compromised by a significant discrepancy between his ability to comprehend and to process information and a poor working memory,” the motion states. …”

Who could have ever predicted that?

Even if Dylann Roof had never lashed out in Charleston, you can tell from these photos that there is something medically wrong with him. In his jailhouse diary, he mentioned that he has Hashimoto’s disease, which affects the thyroid and causes memory lapses and depression. Now it turns out he was suffering from schizophrenia, autism, substance abuse and social anxiety disorder.

This should change the whole narrative around Charleston. It won’t though. Dylann Roof is too valuable as a racist white supremacist to be considered a James Holmes or Jared Loughner.

  • The sooner Roof is dead and forgotten, the better.

    Roof is basically the White Colin Ferguson.

    Colin Ferguson murdered white people for being white on a Long Island Railroad train in 1993. The story was extensively covered by the media because black crime in the early 90s didn’t go down the memory hole like it does now thanks to the Lugenpresse.

    Our movement had a grand stroke of luck in that World Spirit Trump announced his candidacy just TWO DAYS before Roof’s horrific murder spree. Thus the focus in the Summer of 2015 was not so much on Dylann Roof and evil White Supremacists but on illegal aliens who bring drugs, crime, and rape and murder people like the beautiful Kate Steinle, who Trump talked about frequently on the stump.

  • It’s not even true. Roof was of perfectly sound mind. The power class likes to diagnose their political opponents with mental disorders so as to discredit their acts. Roof & Breivik & people like this could only have done what they did, if they were lunatics, or so the reasoning goes. Except they aren’t lunatics. One very effective way to discredit ideas is to discredit the people who hold them. For what it is worth, I refuse to condemn Dylann Roof. We live under the yoke of an insane, Cultural Marxist totalitarian government hell-bent on the destruction of our people. Different people choose different ways to resist that tyranny. I am not at all ready to say Roof was wrong. I simply don’t know the best way forward. Terrorism does seem to work very well for the Muslims. It also worked for the Irish & the Israelis.

    • I actually am with you on this, probably because as a teenager I was quiet and a bit shy and would probably have been told I had various psychological disorders by the jew controlled (((psychiatry))) industry. Autism rates have spiked in the last decade for apparently no reason.

      As for Roof, I feel it’s more a tragedy and what happens when a poor white kid with no future snaps. Terrorism I don’t believe works, as it just unites the victim country against them. For right wing violence to be effective, 1) it needs to be organized, similar to the SA in Weimar, Spanish Nationalists in the Spanish Civil War, etc, 2) it needs to have a clear goal such as fighting antifa or protecting innocents and 3) it needs to have at least a moderate amount of public support, such as the German people supporting the Nazi anti-communist violence after the commie uprisings of 1918-1919.

    • Even if he were mentally ill, his actions wouldn’t and shouldn’t be forgiven. What he did was disgusting and he needs to be punished for the lives that he took.

      • Meh. He’s being punished. I understand why he did what he did. The anti-white madness of the Western overclass has reached a fever pitch. This “open borders” Cultural Marxist lunacy is very bad for white people & Western values. It is a borderline genocidal policy & it has infested the entire Western World. It’s perfectly understandable that Roof was trying to do something about it.

          • Yeah, like the out-group ethnic warfare behind “white privilege” propaganda, or the invasion of large swathes of the European continent by hostile Islamic & African savages, or like the anti-white oligarchy’s disallowance of any & all white interest organizations while all other groups organize incessantly for their own racial & tribal interests, often in violent ways, or the unconscionable bastardization of white, Western history & the wholesale vilification of whites generally by the Cultural Marxist overclass, which they pass off to common fools as “philosophy” & “sociology”. That anti-white lunacy. The anti-white lunacy that pervades the MSM, academia & the power structure. Oh, and “wow” isn’t an argument.

          • Okay. I do agree with that. There is a very small population of people who think white people are evil (cough feminists) but not all of them even want the death of white people, or the oppression of them, which would be more anti-white than just disliking them. But it is not nearly 1/100 as prevalent as many people on the right claim. I see people on the far right claiming that people are at war with white people, that everything is an example of some underground anti-white agenda, and proof of a white genocide soon to come, that is a more than just insane.

          • A white genocide is already occurring. It is a soft, gradual genocide, but it is a genocide nonetheless, or at least something akin to it. And the people carrying it out know exactly what they’re doing. There is essentially no “choice” in what is being done to white people in the Western World. Integration is forced. Open borders are forced. Even miscegenation is essentially forced, given that the power structure doesn’t really permit whites to prefer their own kind socially, romantically or sexually. Where is the choice? Sure, I can agree with you that most leftists aren’t filled with “hate” strictly speaking, but they are deeply anti-white in their prejudices & orientation. I mean “diversity” has become the preeminent value of Westerners over the last few decades. “Diversity” means “fewer white people”. It really doesn’t mean anything else. So, whether they realize it or not, whether they are filled with hate or not, these diversity mongers are very much engaging in a coordinated effort to eliminate white people.

          • So we meet again TransPride.. Beware, for this time you won’t be so lucky!

            You say you have studied psychology(no doubt trying to come to an understanding of your beastly desires), the problem is.. you seem to have virtually no understanding of psychology at all.

            So please prove your credentials first and then after that we might be able to take you more seriously.

          • Still working on it? Pfft! Not nearly good enough.

            I have three separate PhD’s AND I am a great hacker, try again.

          • So I have to have 30 years of experience to be good enough?
            Everyone starts somewhere you fucking idiot. At least I am actually in school for it and studying it. That is how someone with a PhD gets a PhD by the way fucktard. I’m sure I know much more than you do.

          • About what? Everything? I’m sure you don’t.

            Just saying something like: “I’m sure I know much more than you do.” just strikes me as kind of stupid. Why would you write something like that if not to prop up your terrible self-confidence?

            You should look into replying to my comment about the Coudenhove-Kalergi plan, you avoided that one. I’m very much interested in your pespective on it.

            Also, you should look into why you’re always insulting the people you are communicating with. It’s not very polite and I think you should apologise. You don’t know if you’re actually hurting my feelings. Why would you want to do such a thing?

          • because it generally is but in this case someone who has been studying and focusing research on a subject and has studied it for year knows more than someone who has no fucking clue other than a few biased articles on opinions on the subject

          • But you don’t actually seem to know anything about the subjects you discuss.

            Also, don’t forget to apologise or you will be doxxed.

          • Says you someone who just doesn’t like what I have to say. And I know it is a joke that last part anyways but you are starting to sound exactly like those you claim to dislike

          • I dislike nobody or nothing, that is how tolerant I am. What a sad life you must live going around hating everyone and everything.

            But while I’m accepting of your fallacious views, that doesn’t mean that I accept their validity.

          • Really? I would be quite interested to hear your opinion on this quote then:

            “The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. […]

            Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit. This happened at the moment when Europe’s feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation.”

            This is a quote by the leading champion of the European Union project. It wouldn’t be completely wrong to call him the de facto founding father of the European Union.

            So, how is this not “genocide” in a sense seeing as his “prediction” is well on the way of becoming a reality? It’s not hard to predict the future when you and your cronies are in the business of creating it. Your conspiracy theorist levels are laughable, if not nonexistent.

          • It is true. I have told you of the Coudenhove-Kalergi plans many times already but you refuse to even acknowledge this.

            “The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. […]

            This is fact, this is real. Look it up if you have to it’s on Wikipedia and if you don’t trust Wikipedia reference his book Practical Idealism.

            This is the guy that was the main driving force behind the creation of the European Union. It wouldn’t really be wrong to call him the founding father of the EU. And look at what is happening in Europe. Connect the dots? We see what is happening and it is correlating perfectly with his description of the future. What more do they have to do? They fucking announce their plans openly and still you people deny it!

            What is wrong with you people? This is real, wake the hell up!

            You don’t understand. This is a divide and conquer strategy, you people claim to want to fight the power but you always default to the agendas they promote. You think these scumbags care about tolerance? Even a little bit? They are the exact people you liberals used to claim to oppose. This is “the patriarchy”, these are the richest people on the planet, the most influential and the most corrupt and they tell you people to jump and you say: “How high?” Don’t you understand? They tell you it’s white people.. we’re the problem, and as long as you people are busy vilifying us they can keep getting away with murder. When was the last time you saw any of these liberal talking heads really challenge the power structure and what they are doing? It doesn’t happen because we’re all embroiled in this cultural identity war now. A war they started!

            They want Europe and America to be completely divided among racial groups and they will keep fanning these flames. “Diversity” they say, no! It’s fucking divide and conquer, the oldest tactic in the book.

            And gender? Well, you’ve got feminism and now we’ve got MRA and MGTOW and all this crazy shit. Yet another dividing line! Sex? Well, I’ll let you figure that out. They brand it as social justice but in reality they’re just opening up new fronts of war between the masses. LIBERALS CREATED THE ALT-RIGHT. UNDERSTAND THAT. UNDERSTAND THAT!

            Don’t you see that they’re purposely engineering division? Have you heard of Operation Mockingbird. Maybe google it, the mass media was infiltrated by the CIA decades ago. You people don’t even know the first thing. They consolidated 90% of all media to six media conglomerates, and that was from dozens of companies just in the 80s.

            You people better wake up because you know what their response to this turmoil will be? A totalitarian police state, and the most hilarious thing is you liberals keep attacking us as fascists when we and the conspiracy theorists are the only ones naming and calling out the real power structures and their machinations. Yeah, we’re fascists.. that’s why the mass media is relentlessly attacking us, not because we’re a threat to their already established “fascist” order.

            Meanwhile you people are going on about 78 fucking genders. No one fucking cares! It doesn’t matter, it’s completely inconsequential to what is really going on, which is their consolidation of power and the ongoing externalisation of their totalitarian designs. Talk about your fucking 78 genders or whatever when you’re microchipped like the animals they see us as.

            Fuck you people, you’re so utterly fake. Yeah, you’re so fucking counter-culture the whole fucking system even the corporations support you people wholeheartedly.. because they’re so tolerant and they really care, right? Laughable. How rebellious.. Fucking sell out slaves!

            This is me being real with you. You people don’t know the first thing about the alt-right and what we believe.

    • Maybe a couple of FACTS might help. Roof sat there looking at these nice people knowing that some were a part of the Black Communist movement that has clouded America since the 30’s! Some of this same group had march in a anti-American march calling it a anti-klan march. They were there to cause trouble! They did and they lost! A mentally ill person goes nuts setting in the middle of trash! I never want to here about human rights again. Not after the animals raping him with in two hours of arriving back in Charleston.

  • staged event, false flag- take the Jew glasses off. I have noticed the whole WN movement has agreed to pretend the emperor wears clothes when he doesn’t. Great for political ambitions I suppose in a system based on lies

  • I don’t think he killed anyone. I suggest looking for videos about the Charleston church shooting event/hoax on YouTube. The mainstream media don’t just lie about race and the supposed holocaust. You have to think for yourself and sift through videos on YouTube to get beyond what the powers that be want us to think. Probably more than half of the conspiracy channels on YouTube are owned by shills, so you have to spend some time deciding for yourself what is and isn’t genuine.

  • court-appointed psychiatrist” I would take an 8th grader’s judgment more serious. bad times cause bad things, what a waste. got balls representing himself though. he should stick with it and at least let the world know the truth behind what he did

  • Personally I think it was mostly the pot and the lack of morality and character that made this Roof guy shoot up that church. He did have at least one black friend that he liked to smoke pot with, a guy that told media that he had done so in the weeks before the shooting. I believe Roof desperately wanted attention to escape his miserable life, so he took on the personal of a Hollywoodesque “white supremacist” by going for that church. His black friend also related that Roof had considered other targets.
