The attacks have begun. The tragic events in Norway were politically motivated and were carried out by an insane individual that the MSM and the Left in this country and in Europe are gleefully pointing to as indicative of all of us who support individual freedoms and smaller government.
Anders Behring Breivik killed at least 90 people, many of them teenagers, in a politically motivated attack on "indigenous Europeans who betrayed their race" in an attempt to stem Muslim immigration to his country. Once again his sick and twisted politics are being confused by the ignorants on the Left and in the MSM as representing the mainstream of Libertarian and conservative thought. The title of this column was pulled from Martin Fletcher's myopic report on the tragedy this morning on NBC.
Knock it off, open a book and stop trying to exploit this insane and senseless tragedy to bolster your political disagreements. Take the finger you wag at others for the small-minded and premature attacks on all Muslims after a Jihadist attack, and wag it in your direction. Be consistent even when it doesn't suit your political agenda.
If it needs to be spelled out, Anders Behring Breivik (and his cohorts if there are proven there are any) represents his own twisted, violent, view of the world, and his actions don't prove that your political views are more correct than those of us on the other side of the aisle.
Pray for the victims and their families, pray for Norway and pray that all of us may someday begin to understand differing viewpoints and belief systems without resorting to ignorance and cliche.
