I think that is one lesson that should be learned from the Norway massacre. Public opinion polls in Norway reveal a great deal of dissatisfaction with the country's aggressive Muslim minority. But, outside the anonymity of a poll, you had better not say so.
Norway's penal code (Straffeloven, section 135 a) prohibits "hate speech" and defines it as publicly making statements that threaten or ridicule someone or that incite hatred, persecution or contempt for someone due to their skin colour, ethnic origin, homosexual life style or orientation or, religion or philosophy of life. So criticism of Muslims is illegal in Norway.
America's founding fathers gave Americans the First Amendment, which would have invalidated such a law in the USA, but there is no First Amendment in Norway and Norway's socialists have not been as wise as America's founding fathers.
So Anders Behring Breivik shot over 80 of the children of the Norwegian Leftist elite who passed the restrictive law concerned. See here.
It's a tragic day when bullets replace words but those who muzzle the words have to take some share of the blame. Trying to hold down discontent by suppressing expression of it is plain dumb -- but very Leftist.
I have found his writing to be refreshing and informative.

Actually, what is posted here makes sense. I’ve no clue about the rest as I avoid blogs, but this “feels” right.
I digress a bit, but: Up here in the Pacific Northwest I am seeing a proliferation of bumper stickers that say “Turn off Fox News”. I find it revealing that liberals are always ready to curtail someone else’s rights.
Think about your image on the Vikings. Then think about the pathetic defenceless reactions of the Norwegians. How are these people the descendants of the Vikings?
How would we feel if EVERY rape in Washington DC in one whole year was committed by Muslims?
What is 70% of all our prisons were filled with Muslims...?
How might our feelings be worsened if saying ANYTHING about that was illegal...?
Replace Muslim with Holder’s People.
How much different is our situation than that of the Norwegian’s?
>How are these people the descendants of the Vikings?
Hell, for that matter how are the “white middle class” of the US the Decendents of the Saxons?
Every freeman Saxon possessed a knife, called a Saex (from whence Saxon comes), and they were burried with them; even the children.
(Now compare and contrast that to the prissy flakes who suffer the ‘vapors’ from the mere sight of a weapon; i.e. those that complain about open carry.)
Sorry my sarc on and off html disappeared.
This man killed children, not a single muslim. He could have said his motive was imitation cheese spread and it would make just as much sense.
To me, he is the same kind of sicko that shot at Mrs Giffords and those in the crowd. Sometimes people want to blame everyone but the clearly insane criminal.
If a real violent political uprising does occur, I promise it will be crystal clear what the message is.
Liberals allow their kids to play these violent video games where they are graphically blowing everyone away for hours a day, but the sight of a real gun carried by a responsible person freaks every one of them out.
Norway inherited the "nice people" and they're stuck with them now in a FAILED STATE that's unable to do anything to protect its people from mass murderers.
Their Norse folk become a relatively isolated gene pool and it's not looking good folks, not good at all.
Another factor is cultural change. Decades of indoctrination by Leftists in the Norwegian educational establishment, plus softness induced by prosperity. Human nature doesn't change, but populations can change their standards. Remember all the atrocities and fanaticism displayed by the Japanese in WW2? In many battles, the Japs refused to surrender, meaning that all those violent males were exterminated. Plus the national loss of face discredited violence in their culture after the war.
Well, they do train their boys to knit and sew to get them to be less aggressive.

And that’s exactly my point; it is as CS Lewis put it: “We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” ( Abolition of man: http://www.columbia.edu/cu/augustine/arch/lewis/abolition1.htm )
Norway’s penal code (Straffeloven, section 135 a) prohibits “hate speech” and defines it as publicly making statements that threaten or ridicule someone or that incite hatred, persecution or contempt for someone due to their skin colour, ethnic origin, homosexual life style or orientation or, religion or philosophy of life. So criticism of Muslims is illegal in Norway.
I would think not applying those laws evenly might cause some frustration, too.
It seems Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere and Minister of Finance Kristin Halvorsen have no problem with the bashing Israel and Jews.
Church burnings... (Norway’s black metal)
It appears to me that law is for people of color, muslims and homosexuals—the rest are on their own.
