I heard this coming into work this morning. It's awesome classic NPR at its best. Breathless reporting of Right Wing Extremists, NeoNazis, Xenophobes, Racists and Other Capitalists. They get right down to identifying the root cause of the Muslim problem: Europe wasn't inclusive enough.

The audio of the story is at the link. It's worth a few minutes to listen to.

10,000 Muslims extremists commit murder -- [shrug] a few bad apples. It's a religion of peace. Let's not generalize. These are good people.

1 Norwegian goes berzerk -- rightwing extremists must be dealt with, these are dangerous people. Perhaps if we push harder to the Left, things will work out.

Imagine NPR applying this same hysterical standard of reporting to the next muslim terrorist attack.

The right wing in Europe is different then the right wing in the USA.

Who did he shoot? Muslims at the camp or white locals?

It’s kinda late to start worrying about “growing extremism” isn’t it? Maybe certain people should have started paying attention to the “growing extremism” before 9/11?

That was the first question that popped into my head. Did we see the same headline after the Sept. 11 attacks? Or only after Bin Laden was shot?

It doesn't matter. Sylvia Poggioli saw items with Nordic symbols on them being sold right there out in the open in Scandinavia, and even though there weren't any swastikas as everyone knows Nordic symbols means Nazis.

The shooter was:

1. Pro-gay, and possibly gay himself
2. Wanted some sort of Roman Catholic monarcy, and Protestant churches to be banned
3. Was pro-Israel, but didn’t like Jews
4. Hung out on Nazi (National Socialist) web boards
5. Was a Masonic Knight Templar (who are Protestant and want to control the Holy Land)
6. Was socialists, but only for Europeans

How is that remotely conservative?

I would think that by now the left wing extremists at NPR would consider it redundant to use the label right wing extremist especially when, to the left wing extremists, ALL extremists are right wing and everyone else including NPR’s left wing extremists, per NPR’s left wing extremist, are considered normal and centrists.

I just saw a Fox interview with a LEO commentator who said they are prepared for both foreign terrorists and domestic right wing extremist.
Apparently those are the only threats to the country.

I’m actually finding it amusing that they’re so scared of us...even though the chances of their own “unwashed masses,” “working stiffs” (ie, “unions”), welfare queens, La Raza gangbangers, ELF and ACORN becoming violent are 10 times more likely than any of those Tea Party members. I like them afraid. In fact, I like them quaking in their Birkenstocks. It makes me laugh. Bwa-ha-ha-ha!

Yet showing the Rodney King video on MSM a thousand times didn’t have anything to do with, how many dead/injured, businesses looted/burned/destroyed?

Does the left honestly think they can try to force feed Islam and immigrants and the resulting threats to cultures, and ways of life, finances and personal safety and not expect people to react negatively?

Both sides have their radical elements. Both sides, if provoked, risk one of their loose cannons going off. Islam has its bin Ladens, Attas, Adam G’s, Fort Hoods. . . . the left has its Unabombers, Ayers, New Black Panthers, ACORN . . .sooner or later it hits the fan.

Somehow it waa “feel their rage” in S. Central LA, but not non-Muslims who are sick of these immigration policies?

They try to justify/differentiate but only because in one instance it was left wing, in another it was right wing.

I don’t know; there have been several variations along the Roman Catholic Monarcy theme here.

None were gay and none were Knights Templar, I believe.

Very odd combination, really logically impossible.

Yeah, ya' never know when we might machine gun the heads off of unarmed female students, blow up American barracks and ships, murder almost 3000 people by taking down two skyscrapers, etc., etc., etc.

Boy, ya' never know what those nutty muslimophobic Americans might do.

What absolute trash! Worthy of the stupid rantings of Karin Johnson (Whoopie Goldberg).

This nut job is exactly what the left has HOPED FOR for a long time.
White, legally owned guns, expressed "right-wing views" and anti-muslim sentiments on websites.
Does it sound familiar?
Never mind all the other terrorists in the world, because of the actions of this one, his category will be labeled more dangerous than all other categories put together.
Janet Napoletano of DHS made statements to that effect months ago but it got very little traction
The Left needed this guy.

One loony isolated incident and left is quick to declare rising tide of right-wing terrorism while when world is awash with Islamic and left-wing terrorist incidents, left insists we should not be quick to judge or blame moselms or Islam or leftist groups or anybody, but rather blame ourselves for provoking them.

So be prepared to see endless gut-wrenching images and stories of victims and victim’s families paraded till ‘right-wing’ establishment is shamed and extracted political price.

What has been characterized as the European New Right isn't eve nclose to what we call the Right here in the US. Many of them advoocate for a return to a sort of 'pagan spiritualism' - the overall shape of their ambitions appear to be a pan-European quasi Fourth Reich sort of state. They are very much will-to-power driven, and some of them say as much. Having said that, there are also a number of points with which a reasonable person might find agreement - the disdain for and the call for resistance against Marxism, Islam and multi-culturalism to name three major ones. It's where they plan to go with their will-to-power drive naims that evokes echoes of the previous centurys horrors. And how did that 'will to power' express itself in our times? Jean-Francois Revel, writing over a century after Nietzsche, said of the Europeans:,
"It was they, after all, who made the twentieth century the darkest in history; it was they who brought about the two unprecedented cataclysms of two World Wars; and it was they who invented and put into place the two most criminal regimes ever inflicted on the human race - the pinnacles of evil and imbecility achieved in a space of less than thirty years."
It's not surprising that we're seeing the rise of one of the great evils of the previous century in response to - and in competition with - the other evils extant on the modern world. Those ideas never went away, did they?

For the ignorant, the mindless, the uneducated, and the just-plain-stupid... nazis are NOT, nor have they ever BEEN, “right” wing.

But not for Hitler’s invasion of the beloved Uncle Joe’s territory, we would be seeing HIS mug on t-shirts, along with other leftist murdering icons, like Mao and Che. No one does mass murder like a leftie.

“How is that remotely conservative?”

Only in the most intellectually lazy or bad faith way of assigning the label of ‘conservative’ to anti-Marxist, anti-globalist positions. Like the left’s knee jerk bleating of ‘Trostkyite’ or ‘fascist’ in days gone by.

But, if one were not intellectually lazy or in bad faith or both, one would not be a leftist.

No, the left needs what they are portraying Breivik to be.

But is he what’s being portayed? They’d like him to be a more-identifiably Christian version of Timothy McVeigh, but the more we learn about him the more he sounds like a 32-year old Dylan Klebold (Justiciar Knight Commander?? Sounds like a title for a character in a D&D campaign).

Of course, if Europe’s future turns out to be as dark as some fear, he may turn out to be more like an American domestic terrorist from longer ago: John Brown.

I note that the media is not pursuing the geek-gone-bad angle and blaming World of Warcraft, nor the anti-Masonic angle. The want him to be the terrorist the DHS has been fantasizing about, but that doesn’t mean he is.

Thanks - there’s obviously a great deal more to it than that. My recent research for my book has turned up what looks like the resurgence of one of modernity’s worst evils. I alwys look for the pedigree of ideas, as that tells you more about those advocating them they might want you to know.

It’s a Scylla and Charybdis scenario for those of us on the American Right. We can not afford to be drawn into either of those two maelstroms of totalitarianism if we wish to retain our humanity.

.....and nuts are still nuts. Not sure what his motivation was. If he was trying to make a point about a political party he thought to soft on Muslim immigration by killing the PM and children of that political party.....well....he likely had the opposite effect. If he was trying to enrage Muslims to commit violence to prove a point to the population, he could have simply drawn some cartoons. He's crazy.

Second, Did the Norwegian shooter get his weapons from Obama’s renegade CIA/ATF Operation?

lol. No, it seems he purchased his weapons legally. Confirmed: Breivik Bought Guns Legally

I thnkk that was certainly part of his motivation. Fits the messianic will-to-power mindset. You know, there's something positively Manson-esque about this guy's entire worldview - one that he proceeded to demonstrate, cooly and calmly.

What concerns me is that some of these people are smart enought to attempt to drape the American Right in the same clkothing, fueling the fire that's already burning hot on the Left. The formula: commit atrocity and claim brotherhood with those whom you wish to draw into the conflict.
