I was reading the reports yesterday concerning the bombing of the government center in Oslo Norway and the attack on the Norwegian youthcamp. The comment posts immediately jumped to Muslim bashing. Now as much as I believe that Islam is an even more manipulative power tool than even Catholicism, there just wasn’t anything to show that Muslims were involved so I posted as much on one of the news sites (CNN) and was immediately attacked as a left wing, pinko, defender of Sharia law, blah blah blah.
The suspect arrested for both attacks turns out to be an Aryan poster child.
Breivik’s facebook page describes himself as a Christian Conservative.
His two targets were;
#1 The Government
#2 A youth camp sponsored by the labour party.
So, in other words, he attacked big government and the left wing. Can we make comparisons to homegrown terrorist Timothy McVeigh?
Are christian conservatives capable of committing atrocities?
Do you think America will wake up to threat from the far right?
Not if Fox can help it. Today’s front page banner on Fox reads:
Madman’ Eyed in Norway Massacre
How come when it’s Muslims involved they are terrorists? When it’s a christian conservative with hatred toward Muslims he’s a madman?
Fox was pretty selective with its use of quotes, for example:
National police chief Sveinung Sponheim told NRK that the suspected gunman’s Internet postings “suggest that he has some political traits directed toward the right, and anti-Muslim views, but whether that was a motivation for the actual act remains to be seen.”
That’s right Fox, protect your own…
