Norwegian television has identified a suspect in the shooting spree on the island Utoya as Anders Behring Breivik, 32, describing him as a member of “right-wing extremist groups in eastern Norway.” The shooting at the youth camp has reportedly resulted in more than 80 deaths.
In his Facebook account, now deleted, he describes himself as having Christian, conservative views. He also has a Twitter account with only one tweet, a quote from philosopher John Stuart Mills: “One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100 000 who have only interests.”
If the reports are accurate, don’t expect denunciations of right-wing extremism from Fox News. If the event in Norway had been caused by a Muslim, would Fox News classify it as a terrorist attack instead of a massacre by a madman?

A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
There’s no doubt that that you need to publish more about this issue, it might not be a
taboo matter but typically folks don’t speak about these topics.
To the next! Cheers!!

Pam Geller Justifies Breivik’s Terror: Youth Camp Had More ‘Middle Eastern or Mixed’ Races Than ‘Pure Norwegian’
By Lee Fang on Aug 1, 2011
Popular hate blogger Pam Geller has received scrutiny in recent days as the public became aware that the right-wing terrorist in Norway, Anders Behring Breivik, had praised her blog and thoroughly cited her writing in his political manifesto. After a number of blogs made the connection, as well as the New York Times, the Atlantic, and other major outlets, Geller became incensed and began lashing out at her critics.
In a post defending herself yesterday, Geller — who has called Obama “President Jihad” and claimed that Arab language classes are a plot to subvert the United States — reached a new low. Geller justifies Breivik’s attack on the Norwegian Labour Party summer youth camp because she says the camp is part of an anti-Israel “indoctrination training center.” She says the victims would have grown up to become “future leaders of the party responsible for flooding Norway with Muslims who refuse to assimilate, who commit major violence against Norwegian natives including violent gang rapes, with impunity, and who live on the dole.”
I have been gone most of the day and you have continued your baiting….
Tinfoil elf-boy, where are you?
Come out and play …
Are you looking for your evidence or did you take too many antipsychotics
@Elf Boy — “You started it by attacking everyone on here that posted a different view that you”
All you need to do now is the proof to substantiate that claim. Just find a personal attack of mine that wasn’t preceded by a personal attack on me. Just go back to the Paul Revere thread and you’ll see that 90% of the regulars knocked themselves out of the box the first day.
I’ll be waiting.
“What is wrong with the above communication from you? ”
You tell me, genius.
No Kdpanzee….You started it by attacking everyone on here that posted a different view that you…You quit you RatShit4brains attitude and I’ll cease…

How about just being a little more even-handed with admonishments to stay on topic, rather than selectively criticizing only the people whose opinions you disagree with.
Condescension trolling is no more elevated than any other form of it.
What is wrong with the above communication from you? Geeze…If it were not for GOP rhetoric and double speak…what intelligent could you say…Stay with the Platform….When you try and write outside of the Notes you are given….You do a miserable job….We want a New Troll….You are getting paranoid and delusional….especially if you think people care what you write….Either your lefty side is coming out or you really are a liberal….in either case…Your writing can be better….Stick to the notes…

Elf boy, you got yourself a chicken and egg problem. What came first my insults or yours and those you profess to defend? I’ve already shown how the insults started with you and your buddies. All you have shown is your own stupidity. Pony up the evidence (they did teach evidence in that welding school you attended, didn’t they?) to sho I’m wrong and I will humbly apologize and cease all insults. There’s your incentive, elfy, is it beyond your limited abilities? I’ll throw in a cookie as well to sweeten the pot. Put up or shut up and take your beating like a man (not an elf).
Whats the matter RatShit4Brains……
Did lil elf hurt your feelings…..I am crushed….If you would quit insulting folks then maybe I can resist as well….Deal, Kdponzi?
You talk like you want civility…..and calling Spindell Spinwell…come on stick to your script and I’ll stick to mine….
Why so bitter, Elf Boy? You are making less and less sense with each post. Stop before you break that fragile little ego of yours. All this taunting and baiting doesn’t seem to be working out so well for you. Might want to try a tactical shift to logical arguments and civility, assuming of course that you are capable of such high-level thinking and maturity. Or you can continue down the same path to depravity. What will it be, elfy?
