NEW YORK TIMES READER KILLS DOZENS IN NORWAYJuly 27, 2011The New York Times wasted no time in jumping to conclusions about Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian who staged two deadly attacks in Oslo last weekend, claiming in the first two paragraphs of one story that he was a "gun-loving," "right-wing," "fundamentalist Christian," opposed to "multiculturalism."
It may as well have thrown in "Fox News-watching" and "global warming skeptic."
This was a big departure from the Times' conclusion-resisting coverage of the Fort Hood shooting suspect, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. Despite reports that Hasan shouted "Allahu Akbar!" as he gunned down his fellow soldiers at a military medical facility in 2009, only one of seven Times articles on Hasan so much as mentioned that he was a Muslim.
Of course, that story ran one year after Hasan's arrest, so by then, I suppose, the cat was out of the bag.
In fact, however, Americans who jumped to conclusions about Hasan were right and New York Times reporters who jumped to conclusions about Breivik were wrong.
True, in one lone entry on Breivik's gaseous 1,500-page manifesto, "2083: A European Declaration of Independence," he calls himself "Christian." But unfortunately he also uses a great number of other words to describe himself, and these other words make clear that he does not mean "Christian" as most Americans understand the term. (Incidentally, he also cites The New York Times more than a half-dozen times.)
Had anyone at the Times actually read Breivik's manifesto, they would have seen that he uses the word "Christian" as a handy moniker to mean "European, non-Islamic" -- not a religious Christian or even a vague monotheist. In fact, at several points in his manifesto, Breivik stresses that he has a beef with Christians for their soft-heartedness. (I suppose that's why the Times is never worried about a "Christian backlash.")
Thank God for the New Media!
The only reason Timothy McVeigh has gone down in history as a right-wing Christian and Jared Loughner has not -- despite herculean efforts by much of the mainstream media to convince us otherwise -- is that by January 2011 when Loughner went on his murder spree, conservatives had enough media outlets to reveal the truth.

Breivik is very clear that you don't even have to believe in God to join his movement, saying in a self-interview:
Q: Do I have to believe in God or Jesus in order to become a Justiciar Knight?
A: As this is a cultural war, our definition of being a Christian does not necessarily constitute that you are required to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus.
Not all of them, but in this case.. YES.
Good on Anne for being so brave while Drudge BARELY MENTIONS FAST & FURIOUS.
Ann Coulter is the premier wordsmith of our generation.
Sort of a hideous headline, but she’s absolutely right.
We have to be prepared to fight back. This guy Breivik was as loony as Charles Manson, the fictional Hannibal Lecter, or any other NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) type you care to mention. He wasn’t crazy, as in paranoid schizophrenic crazy, and knew the difference between right and wrong - which is the reason Norway should either install or revive the death penalty.
But that said, the fact that he quoted virtually everybody in the universe (including Ghandi) in his screed will not be mentioned by the MSM. The only thing they will try to make people remember is that once upon a time, Breivik watched a program on Fox...
And once again, the NY Slimes does not let the truth get in the way of a good smear.
Outstanding. Brava, Ann!
Yeah, what is wrong with Drudge? I don’t understand it. It’s extremely disappointing.
Come on Blood,
the times has an agenda.
All the news that fits their “agenda”.
Good, bad, real, or contrived, the times prints what fits their, “agenda”.
“And I’m back on the Ann Boat! Full steam ahead Annie!!”
You were OFF the Ann Boat?
Yes, she has turned down my proposal again, but I will keep trying.
“Sort of a hideous headline...”
Heh heh heh ... yeah, take away the legs, the brains and the wicked wit and what do you have? The woman I love.
And please, something new, and not with those libtards she's been seeing...
The final zinger.
Don’t always agree with her. But someone desperately needed to fire back, and she did.
Brilliant rebuttal to the jihadis at NYTimes and the White House.
I would love to see Coulter debate the empty suit on National TV
Hell, I would shell out the cash for PPV
What a closing line! Brilliant!
