Why Does the South Carolina Shooter Dylann Roof’s Website have Ties to Russia?

Mike Paczesny | The Rundown Live

Dylann Roof allegedly shot to death nine people at South Carolina church.

Shortly after Roof’s ‘manifesto‘ and website were leaked publicly, while everyone was focused on the content, I decided to do some basic research into his website.

What I found was interesting at the least, not only was the site only created 4 months prior to the attack, on 2/9/15, but it also has very interesting ties.

After doing some simple DNS & WHOIS searches I came across something interesting, Russia.

Why would a 21 year old, from South Carolina, use a Russian email host (yandex.com), and a Russian web host based out of Moscow(reg.ru) to host his website?


Judging by his website, lack of social media presence, his internet skills were mediocre at best, so using a Russian host seems odd. (Hackers tend to enjoy Russian hosts.)

Note: Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia a book by Alexander Dugin. The book has had a large influence within the Russian military, police, and statist foreign policy elites and was allegedly used as a textbook in the General Staff Academy of Russian military.

In the United States:

  • Russia should use its special forces within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism. For instance, provoke “Afro-American racists”. Russia should “introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics.”

I’m not saying this is a false flag, but these ties to Russia are bizarre at the least. We can speculate, but I guess all we can do is ask why?
