Here’s what Anders was looking for: browns, Muslims, Pakistanis who make up the majority of immigrants in Norway. Their population is now over 11% immigrant, legal but that does not include illegals there. source: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/24/world/europe/24island.html?_r=1&ref=andersbehringbreivik
The police have identified the suspect as Anders Behring Breivik, who in his writings has portrayed himself as a modern knight, charged with driving out Islam and immigrants and the political correctness that he said had been wrongly invited into Norway and was thriving there.
The campers at Utoya appeared to be the embodiment of his hatred.
Organized by the youth wing of the ruling Labor Party, the camp has become a kind of multicultural incubator in recent years. Many of the victims in Friday’s shooting were the children of immigrants from Africa and Asia who have begun to stake out a greater role for themselves in Norwegian society.
Khamshajiny Gunaratnam, 23, a camp member, was born in Sri Lanka and moved to Norway when she was 3. She is dark-skinned, wears a nose stud and speaks both Norwegian and English in seemingly native accents.
During the official service for the camp kids it was clear when they were called “the country’s future leaders.” Where did that come from? How did they know they were leaders? It must have been more political than we have been told. To be called terrorism an act has to be politically motivated (I don’t agree completely) but by definition then this guy was a terrorist, forget the domestic part. I call it also genocidal when a lot of people are targeted and not just buildings.
Here’s what Anders was writing 1500 pages worth manifesto: http://www.kevinislaughter.com/…
The Nazi part is okay in part because he was preaching an end to the blond, white, Christian Norwegian and hello to the brown, from the south Paki or Muslim who is not Christian and not blond and not a WASP. Mexicans are taking over America as Muslims take over Europe an interesting parallel. The news is calling this Nowegian bomber and shooter a Neo-Nazi. He is conservative and Christian. It seems he went looking for the other and found it in the form of kids who did not look blond and Norwegian like himself. They were at some sort of camp. The building he bombed was political in nature. I don’t know why they call these people domestic terrrorists….they are terrorists plain and simple.
What he did there could be done here or anywhere and it has been. I do object to the wording of domestic and then calling this kid a New Nazi. How do they know? Just because he wanted to kill up some people who did not look or think like him? I think this nazism stuff has to stop. I study the Holocaust, the Jews, and the Nazis and Hitler and I don’t see the parallel except that it’s genocide and that’s enough really. Genocide can be particular or it can be specific but it’s still genocide. Hitler did not invent it nor did the Nazis and they need to just call it what it is genocidal terrorism. Now, if a comment or whatever is specifically targets against Jewish people or Arab people, both semitic, then it is all of a sudden Nazism? I don’t think so. If the group are calling themselves some type of Nazi group that’s different. However they must put the qualifier “neo” before it because it is a new form of Nazism. But again I don’t think so but that’s just my opinion.
Breivik has been reported in the Norwegian press to be a regular commenter on anti-immigrant websites like document.no, where Bruce Bawer is regarded as a godlike figure standing against the Muslim tide. Breivik is an acolyte of Bawer’s. It is inconceivable that they haven’t run across each other, even if it’s just Breivik commenting on Bawer’s posts.
Bawer has been published in The Stranger recently as well, in the “gay issue”, and has in the past spewed his anti-Muslim hate there as well; and last week he had a stint as guest blogger on Andrew Sullivan, repeating his three or four kernels of “proof” that Muslims have destroyed Europe and are about 3/4 of the way done here as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if Dan Savage has met him; he’s quite the figure of gay-blogger royalty, despite his cretinous and murder-inspiring views.
