Tragedy. Blood, everywhere. Horror. Howls of pain. It’s too much to bear.
Dear World: STOP SHOOTING DEFENSELESS RIGHT-WING BLOGGERS.
Pamela Geller | July 25, 2011
. . Instead of mourning the 91 victims of this horrible tragedy, the media is wielding it like a club to bludgeon the voices of freedom.
. . sharia-compliant media is naked in their blood libel to tie this murderer to everyone of us who fight for human rights, the rule of law, the dignity of the human person, free speech, the free conscience, and equality of rights for all.
That’s Pam Geller, for sure. She rescues baby fur seals or reads to the blind when she’s not calling the president an illegitimate bastard.
Here’s the defense of the Islamophobes: crazy people read stuff. They even quote it. So?
Are celebrities responsible for their stalkers? Were the Beatles responsible for Charles Manson? Or Jodie Foster responsible for the shooting of Ronald Reagan?
That’s Pam’s ‘celebrity’ narcissism at work. She thinks she’s John Lennon. She’s a freedom-loving saint, courageous blog-patriot and songwriting sensation.
Earth to Pam: you are a hate monger. And when people take vicious rhetoric like yours seriously, innocent people get hurt. This has been true for centuries. The Beatles or Jodie Foster don’t vomit hate upon the world the way you do.
David Horowitz | Jul 25th, 2011
The New York Times today has a wretched editorial masquerading as a news story on Robert Spencer and his alleged complicity in the Oslo massacres because his ideas are cited by the lunatic responsible. Joseph McCarthy could not have done it better. The Times next will blame Noam Chomsky for the crimes of Osama bin Laden and Al Gore for the crimes of the Unabomber since the ideas of both were cited by the lunatics.
Chomsky doesn’t hate Americans. Gore doesn’t hate technology. But Spencer hates Muslims. Period. Nice try, David. Incidentally, who said this?
“There is a movement for a second Holocaust of the Jews that is being supported on this campus by the Muslim Student Association!”
Oh yeah, you did. Surprise.
Anyway, what’s all this talk of Islamophobia? Mark Steyn just doesn’t understand.
The mass murderer Breivik published a 1,500-page “manifesto.” It quotes me, as well as several friends of [the National Review] . .
So, if a blonde blue-eyed Aryan Scandinavian kills dozens of other blonde blue-eyed Aryan Scandinavians, that’s now an “Islamophobic” mass murder?
And this will be your defense, Mark? If Breivik didn’t kill Muslims, we’re all idiots? The guy was so wound up that he put together a massive hate manifesto, but why would we think it has anything to do with the planning and bomb-planting and traveling and shooting?
Islamophobia seems an eccentric perspective to apply to this atrocity, and comes close to making the actual dead mere bit players in their own murder.
The tragedy’s actually in our hands, Mark’s saying. We should be careful how we play it out. Don’t reduce the dead to “mere bit players” when they’re really the stars. A National Review post makes me want to puke, again.
Quote the manifesto’s introduction:
More than 90% of the EU and national parliamentarians and more than 95% of journalists are supporters of European multiculturalism and therefore supporters of the ongoing Islamic colonisation of Europe; yet, they DO NOT have the permission of the European peoples to implement these doctrines.
So Breivik was most angry with the left-wing, multi-cultural champions of “Islamic colonisation.” That’s why he armed himself and went to an event hosting the future liberals of Norway, killing scores of them. Steyn’s argument that the shooting was random is disgusting. Even he isn’t that stupid.
