NYTimes on Norway massacre: We told you conservatives were dangerous!
The Blaze ^ | July 25, 2011 | Meredith Jessup

Posted on 07/25/2011 5:25:16 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Shortly after Anders Behring Breivik carried out his one-man killing spree of his fellow countrymen Friday, the media began to speculate about the killer’s possible motivations. The terrorist’s disturbing “manifesto” (much of it borrowed from Unabomber Ted Kaczynski) prescribed a race-based revolution across Europe against what he considered the elite, “multiculturalists” and “enablers of Islamization.”

To the New York Times, this seething hatred all apparently sounded familiar:

[Breivik's] manifesto, which denounced Norwegian politicians as failing to defend the country from Islamic influence, quoted Robert Spencer, who operates the Jihad Watch Web site, 64 times, and cited other Western writers who shared his view that Muslim immigrants pose a grave danger to Western culture.

More broadly, the mass killings in Norway, with their echo of the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City by an antigovernment militant, have focused new attention around the world on the subculture of anti-Muslim bloggers and right-wing activists and renewed a debate over the focus of counterterrorism efforts.

Al Jazeera went so far as to blame “hate-monger” Glenn Beck, a “peddler of faith” apparently “cut from the same rotten cloth” as Breivik and 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta.

The Times also noted that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was right to warn against “domestic radicals,” in the United States:

In the United States, critics have asserted that the intense spotlight on the threat from Islamic militants has unfairly vilified Muslim Americans while dangerously playing down the threat of attacks from other domestic radicals. The author of a 2009 Department of Homeland Security report on right-wing extremism withdrawn by the department after criticism from conservatives repeated on Sunday his claim that the department had tilted too heavily toward the threat from Islamic militants.

That does it, I'm paying for GBTV. It officially kicks off on my birthday and will make a fine present to myself.

Aren't the dhimmis at the NYT in favor of the Ground Zero Mosque?

'nuff said.

Ah yes! De-nile is more than a river!

Keep pushing the meme that Abu Sayeff had nothing to do with it.

Maybe we'll all be 'treated' to another Flight 800 or 9/11.

Exactly.... And upping the ante, let me point out that it was their liberal policies that caused you to go over the edge! They are a RECRUITING TOOL for the Tea Party!

The soon to be dhimmis at the New York Times published the Unibomber Manifesto for worldwide distribution 16 years ago.

That seems to have resulted in the creation of a cult following that's now striking out and murdering people in Europe.

The folks at the NYT are so utterly stupid.

Hmmm, a Christian who is an atheist, who doesn’t go to church, who buys hookers and drinks and goes on a murder spree.

When have any of you known Communists, er excuse me, Progressives, to let a blood letting go to waste?

Blood dancing, blood guilt. Surprised Palin hasn’t been fully blamed yet.

Conservatives in Old Europe ?

They must be joking.

Conservatives all left Europe centuries and decades ago.

Many came here as our ancestors and formed a New Europe.

In Modern Times Old Europe only does two things.

Socialism and Fascism.

Two sides of the same coin.

And FYI - Socialist Old Europe is currently ripe for the picking, which explains how a lone fascist killed so many socialist. Heck, Libya may even invade Old Europe soon.

This kind of reporting used to bother me. It doesn’t anymore because it’s such an over reach of pathetic proportions, and reeks of desperation.

NBC news was equally disgusting tonight. They were citing anti-Muslim attacks across the USA, then showing clips from the head of Homeland Security expressing concerns for another Timothy McVeigh. I also loved the part where they were going after Jihad Watch.com. I wonder... while they were visiting that site if they decided to take a second look at the Ft. Hood shootings? No? Oh, how convenient.

There are enough conservatives in this country who carry concealed weapons that a psycho would be unlikely to be able to shoot liberals for for over 90 minutes unopposed.

Rev. Jim Jones, Jonestown Massacre, the Peoples’ Temple.

A marxist nut in Christian-clergy garb. Sounds like some of today’s so-called Christian leftists such as Jim Wallis, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

Never underestimate the ability of the NYT to “Wellstone” a tragedy.

I thought you meant yesterday, CC.

Already on board with GBTV. Have been since the day it was announced.

Fox is just about gonesville for me anyway. Bret Baier, Cavuto, sometimes a little Krauthammer and/or some BOR schticks.

I even called Fox to register a complaint about their left-leaning ways. About as useful as calling the WH about the EPA abuses, I think. Or as valued as Peter Cook’s line in “Frog and Peach,” when speaking about WWII and the character’s opposition to it: “Well, I wrote a letter.”
