I was criticized for my first report on the Oslo and Utoya Island shootings because I put “Oslo’s al-Qaeda?” in my title. Inside my article I gave a report on Iraqi Mullah Krekar, charged and jailed in Oslo recently, and his threats of murder against some in the Norwegian federal government. All of it was true and all of it was reasonable to report. It is reasonable to expect Islamic jihad when we hear of massacres in the West. Islam holds the yet unchallenged record for killing us, and they used car bombs before Tim McVeigh. The first World Trade Tower bombing was Islamic jihad with a massive car bomb in 1993. Tim McVeigh blew up the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995. There is no comparing the quantity of Islamic jihad to Tim-McVeigh-type-violence, which we now understand the Norway story to be. Upsetting the Leftist applecart, a California newspaper says Breivik accused his “step-sister, living in California, of loving money and caring “not for the greater good,” and about being a religious Christian and believing in Jesus Christ and God, Breivik said he was not, and did not.
The shooter wasn’t Arabic or an Islamic convert. Seems he believed his country had forsaken the rights of citizens to raise concerns about life in Norway, and specifically the politics of immigration. He believed democratic change was no longer possible working through the government system. He apparently decided vile acts, including the cold blooded, eye-to-eye massacre of children, would make a difference. Breivik was manifestly and purely evil. We can’t even conjure the blackness of the heart that can carry out these acts. He blames the “extreme left wing” in Norway, but read more and think about reassessing his “right wing tendencies.”
Confessed Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik may have a sister in Century City, California, according to CBS Los Angeles. It is possible that other relatives live in Southern California as well.
CBS Los Angeles reports:
…he chastises the sister for “her American lifestyle” and calls her out for “money is the driving force in her life.” He also says she is more concerned with money and “not the greater good.”The woman’s name is Elizabeth Breivik and federal agents visited her at home last night, according to KNX1070 (via LA Weekly). Shortly afterward, Elizabeth Breivik’s entire family left the house.
She could be an estranged step-sister, according to the Beverly Hills Courier. [the same article says Breivik is estranged from his “former diplomat” father.
We don’t find many “right wingers” placing blame for an appreciation of money. That’s the purview of the Left, constantly accusing Conservatives of loving their wallet more than anything else, yet leaving it up to Conservatives and government to actually do the philanthropic works that make life easier for some around the world (if the money makes it past the hands of dictators).
And of course folks should read the manifesto as well. I don’t know how much was plagiarized — could have been the bulk of it, actually — but many sections weren’t unreasonable at all. These are things most people won’t consider (as Breivik’s actions were supremely evil),.. [emphasis Maggie’s]
Donald links to a piece at Saber Point, which published parts of the Breivik writings, and reminds us that while Tim McVeigh’s violence was blamed on right wing rhetoric: [emphasis below Maggie’s]
“…his violence was really based on leftwing, governmental extremism at both Waco and Ruby Ridge…” (taken out of order in Saber Point’s post)
Breivik’s manifesto contains much truth about the advance of cultural Marxism and the brainwashing of the West with multiculturalism and mind control, i.e., “political correctness.” However, Breivik discloses a growing alienation from democratic processes, which he felt were too weak and too compromised to be an effective avenue for redress of conservative grievances…
The left manufactured Anders Behring Breivik. It is they who should take a long look in the mirror.
It is not wrong, or evil or dangerous to think “multiculturism” can be a problem. “Multiculturism” is dangerous and ugly, when the “a culture” remains outside the “multi” and isolates itself from the identity of the country. Diversity is good, until it demands to move a country beyond a national identity of a benevolent and accepting melting pot, with no respect for the country’s traditions, values and Rule of Law, as does Islam in their quest for Sharia law in the U.S. Norway was forced to ban Sharia. Political correctness can drive a bulldozer right through a desegregated national identity
The Free World in general welcomes immigrants, but all too often, and especially in Europe, some immigrant groups want no part of the history and spirit of the people they live among. We are only in the beginning stages of learning the depth of this problem. The question is, is there a way to fix it in an increasingly Leftist world?
There is no doubt that Breivik described himself as Christian on his Facebook page and in his manifesto. I am not trying to deny it. However, looking more closely at his self-description helps flesh out what he means by that term. After examining his 1500 page manifesto as well as his video, I find that Breivik explicitly identifies himself as a “cultural” Christian (aka Christian Identity), not a religious believer. Furthermore, he says his organization, the Knights Templar, is made up of agnostics, atheists and secular Christians.
[Breivik] If you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and God then you are a religious Christian. Myself and many more like me do not necessarily have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and God. We do however believe in Christianity as a cultural, social, identity and moral platform. This makes us Christian.
I know of no Christians who will accept that claim.
The Left accused Jared Loughner, the Tucson shooter who gravely wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford (D-AZ) and murdered nine, of “right wing extremism. It turned out just the opposite. Loughner, whatever his motives, was not a “right winger,” as was clearly demonstrated as news broke. Loughner once wrote that he wanted to be a woman, and he wanted to hunt children. He said “No I won’t trust in God!” He was a follower of Zeitgeist which debunked Christianity and posits that Christianity is a “myth of Sargon.” I believe the organization are 9/11 Truthers. None of this can be construed to be “Christian fundamentalism,” or “right wing,” other than his hate for the Federal Reserve, which anyone knowing anything about money in America, would rightly question.
The thing is, tying killers like Tim McVeigh or Anders Breivik to “right wing” Christian fundamentalism, as is happening with Breivik, is ludicrous and dishonest. If writings lean hard-to-conservative, or hard to-liberal, I don’t believe an atheist any more prone to murder scores of teenagers, than is a Christian. An Islamist? Murder is often sacred, and they don’t care to spare the children. A Satanist, and some other cultists, yes, I can believe murder might be on their agenda (Charles Manson comes to mind). But in this instance, I see no claim to be killing in the name of Christianity or Jesus Christ, and if there was, you need only to read God’s new covenant with the people, the New Testatment to know Christians do not kill in the name of Christianity, without dropping their faux faith along the curb before doing so. You simply cannot legitimately kill in the name of Jesus Christ. You can, however, kill in the name of Allah, and will be martyred for doing so.
Anders Behring Breivik is a madman lunatic or worse. Just as in the Jared Loughner reporting, the Left will try to sell this as the actions of a murderous, unbending, self-righteous Christian. That’s not the story. Just read his angst in “manifesto” form for yourself.
