The Anti-Feminism of the Far-Right Imageboard Terrorists
When 27-year-old Stephan Baillet shot and killed two people in the German city of Halle on 12 October 2019, the media focus understandably fell on his outspoken anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim acts. His attack occurred on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year according to the Jewish faith, and was directed at a synagogue and a kebab shop. Had Baillet succeeded in shooting open the door to the synagogue, everything indicates that his attack would have ended in a massacre. What has been less of a focus in the aftermath of the Halle attack is Baillet’s vocal anti-feminism views, even though this is a central tenet of the ideology he subscribes to.
