And it's impossible for Pseudo democracies like Iran,Palestine,Egypt, Lybia and other coutries in that area to be corrupt.....naaah!..can't happen!
Yet at least 51% of us take this kind of rubbish seriously. Its explains how George W. Bush got re-elected after starting an unprovoked war (aka war crime) and how we have selective amnesia about how the US led coalition of the coerced and bribed caused hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians deaths in Iraq and made millions more homeless refugees. It explains how Canada's PM can express unshakable support for a country whose leaders commit war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Every once and a while, the few loose control of the message. Now is one of those times and you can see them squirm to try to get it back. Likely they will succeed, because in general, people have short attention spans and don't care about how many people die somewhere else, even if our leaders are responsible.
This event is one example of where demonizing propaganda leads.
Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off The View set during a discussion about the "Ground Zero Mosque" with guest Bill O'Reilly stated that the Islamic community center was "inappropriate" because "Muslims killed us on 9/11".
"They [Behar and Goldberg] were outraged that someone was saying: 'there was a reason--there's a certain group of people that attacked us on 9/11," said Kilmeade frankly. "It wasn't just one person, it was religion. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim."
Newsflash for Colpy,
Muslims are always blamed when a Muslim nutcase commits an atrocity. Its why so many people were against building a mosque near the site of the World Trade Center.
Blaming all Muslims for the actions of a few Muslim nutjobs is a mainstream viewpoint promoted by FoxNews pundits:

When news of this atrocity broke, Muslims were initially blamed by many American news sources:

If this nutjob was brown and had a Muslim background, our news wouldn't hesitate to claim this person was a Muslim terrorist, even if he hadn't been near a mosque for years.
Also, you should think carefully about your personal perceptions and ideology regarding Muslims and how close your views are to this nutjob in Oslo...
I agree that we should not blame groups of people for the actions of individuals, without exceptions... even Muslim exceptions. You agree with me in this case, yet you support Israel's collective punishment of 1.4 million Gazans in response to the actions of a few Gazans.
Given the background of tragedy afflicting the planet over the last ten years and the numerous contradictions spawned by media during their coverage, anything is possible. We'll get new twists every hour. What intrigues me now is how a single person was able to kill so many people at a campground. That baffles.

would suggest that each "terror crime" be viewed on its own facts. As this event demonstrates , it is far too easy to snap to wrong conclusions about the criminals. This was not a "suicide" bomber..... as many of the Islam variety are prone to be.
The accused apparently fired the automatic rifles for over an hr and a half. Madness personified. What are the gun laws in Norway?? Anyone here know ??? What is the crime rate there??
If this madman was looking to make some pathetic "statement"..........he succeeded. and now has world wide notoriety. He is a "somebody" now..
This thread is about a horrible incident in Norway that had nothing to do with Muslims or Islam. If you guys want to bash Muslims, start another thread. Have some respect for the victims of this tragedy.
Edit: And I fully expect the usual suspects to pooh pooh Sun News and have nothing but praise for Al_jazeera as an unbiased news source...
Conversely, all I had to do was mention the word "christian" for DaS, Colpy, and Durry to come stampeding through the thread with pitchforks.
Read this nutjob's manifesto or at least my cut and paste summary of it here:Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
This monster had the same irrational fear and hatred of Muslims and multiculturalism as those expressed by FoxNews pundits and regulars on this forum. This nutjob is an example of where anti-Islam demonization can lead.
Muslim scaremongering has crossed a line. The consequences aren't just limited to building support for unprovoked wars against Muslim majority nations (aka war crimes), or support of Zionist ethnic cleansing (aka crimes against humanity). Islamic demonization is now a threat to our domestic safety and security. What happened in Oslo could have easily happened in Canada, the US or any other Western Nation whose MSMs promote hatred against Muslims and cultural/religious intolerance.
BTW, I was just in Oslo two months ago. I'm certain this whackjob would have liked to have killed me for supporting multiculturalism, religious freedom and tolerance. Racial and religious intolerance isn't harmless and the victims include tolerant political leaders and their families.
Actually, it was a manure fork..........not that you know the difference.
And I used it to clear out the BS...........the man was not a Christian. Nor was he Muslim......he belonged wholeheartedly to the Church of the Twisted, Evil Mind.
Of course, most of the usual suspects, in order to smear the right in general, and Christians in particular, lined right up to take the sacraments at the aforementioned church.
Yep. They accepted that his insanity had a logical course, they had faith that a journey through his twisted mind would reveal truth........that there was reason, they joined the murderer in finding a cause for what was completely illogical, and therefore (praise whomever!) assign blame.
Think about that.
Funny, suddenly, because of the actions of one single insane man, acting alone, in which I don't believe he killed a SINGLE Muslim, you seek to discredit an entire political movement that resists the influence of Islam on western culture.
Yet 9-11, Bali, the Spanish trains, the British subway bombings, the Mumbai murders, in which many thousands of innocents died........and on and on and on, massacre after massacre carried on with the organized support of groups dedicated to the downfall of western civilization, all done in the name of Allah......fails to discredit radical Islam in your eyes.
A slight failing of balance there.....
