The Norway Attacks

This is how the media want us to behave all the time.

Nothing I can remember has been more disgusting than the media’s response to the terrorist attacks in Norway. Right away many in the media jumped to the conclusion that it was the work of an Islamist group, even though there was not a shred of evidence to support that idea. All along the Norwegian police were saying they believed the attacks were “domestic” in origin. Indeed, considering that the attacks targeted members of a left-wing party, it was reasonable to assume that they were the work of a right-wing group.

The Norwegian police have announced that the attacks were the work of Anders Behring Breivik. The Los Angeles Times describes him as:

    …a “right-wing Christian fundamentalist” who frequented extremist websites and left a trail of passionate, sometimes obscure rants that reflected strong anti-Islamic views, deep skepticism about the mixing of different cultures and animosity toward socialism.

In other words, this guy holds the sort of nativist views that the media assiduously try to cultivate among Americans. Funny how things turned out that way.

    He was turned by the media, from a terrorist to a gunman.

    I will tell you, when I put up my new blog. It will be in a way, a single issue blog.
