The leftist media, led in America by the New York Times, are shamefully trying to gain political advantage from the Norwegian mass murders by blaming “the right” in general, and the anti-jihad blogger media in particular, for “inspiring” the mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik.
To demonize those who are reporting the truth about radical Islam is an astounding leap of logic. It’s naïve and it oversimplifies a very serious problem with aggressive Muslim immigration around the world. The Times also seeks to deflect attention from its own journalistic error on Friday as the Oslo attack was underway:
American Power Blog reminds us that it was the liberal New York Times which first reported that Al Qaeda was taking credit for the attack.The Times also speculated on the motivation:
“,,,,,right commentators were gathering their information from MSM outlets like the New York Times, which had this in its initial reporting:
“Initial reports focused on the possibility of Islamic militants, in particular Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or Helpers of the Global Jihad, cited by some analysts as claiming responsibility for the attacks. American officials said the group was previously unknown and might not even exist.
There was ample reason for concern that terrorists might be responsible. In 2004 and again in 2008, the No. 2 leader of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahri, who took over after the death of Osama bin Laden, threatened Norway because of its support of the American-led NATO military operation in Afghanistan.
Norway has about 550 soldiers and three medevac helicopters in northern Afghanistan, a Norwegian defense official said. The government has indicated that it will continue to support the operations as long as the alliance needs partners on the ground.”
RS McCain has a good round-up of what we can now call the “anti-anti-jihad’ movement. It’s ironic isn’t it, that the children of the “free speech” movement demand to repress free speech when they don’t agree with it? Here was one example of the unhinged left attacking the truth media, such as Jihadwatch publisher Robert Spencer:
The New American has analysis to show the Norwegian murderer is not, as the left is repeating over and over again, driven by any “Christian fundamentalist” idealogy:“He was Hardly a Christian..”
From Breivik’s “manifesto:”
“I’m not going to pretend I’m a very religious person, as that would be a lie.”
Daniel Greenfield has an excellent summary using quotes from Breivik’s 1500 page “Manifesto” to debunk all the mainstream media myths about the murderer.
Greenfield proves why Breivik: is NOT a fundamentalist Christian, does not hate Muslims, is not “inspired” by counter-jihadist bloggers, is not “pro-Israel,” is not a “moderate,” nor is he a political terrorist.Read it all here.
Greenfield notes in an earlier post:
“The search for blame in all the usual places is inevitable, but counterproductive. The Oslo killings are another item on the ledger of the high cost of Islam. The explosive rage on both sides fueled by a social instability created by aggressive immigration with no thought to its impact on the country as a whole. It was Brevik who spent nine years planning and carrying out the attacks, but it was the political authorities who had created a scenario that made it possible….
“This latest horror warns us that violence will be exploited by the violent, and that the European equation is now in danger of having a third variable. We have had the Jihadists and the apathetic authorities, now there are the Breviks. Dangerous men looking for a cause and a reason to fight. And the social instability and violence created by Islamic immigration gives them a reason.
Talk of suppressing extremism will not prevent the Breviks, it will only encourage them by giving them a more definite enemy to fight. Anti-government violence in Norway and Sweden, countries which have repressed free speech the hardest, is no coincidence. Authoritarianism only feeds anti-government tendencies. It is impossible for Europe to rid itself of the Breviks, without also ridding itself of the social problems that make them possible.
The best way to stop the Breviks of the future, is to steal their thunder. To seriously examine the high cost of Islamic immigration, the failures of integration, the violence taking place under the shadow of multiculturalism– and to honestly and seriously address these things.
Brevik would not have acted if he did not believe that the authorities would play into his hands. If the Norwegian government really wishes to defeat the ideas he championed, it must pull their claws, by addressing them as social problems, rather than by denying them and repressing their critics. Europe’s history of domestic radicalism should provide ample reasons to show why such an approach is unwise and counterproductive.
As long as a social problem remains neglected and a source of social instability proliferates, then the violent tendencies of dangerous loners will be channeled into its path. That is how World War I began. It may be how World War III will begins. The duty of responsible authorities is to address the social problem, not with slogans, but with concrete and realistic measures. If a social problem is a swamp, then it must be drained. Oslo’s social problem is Islamic immigration. The fever swamp of violence cannot be drained, until the immigration that feeds it is drained as well.”
One need only go to the front page of the “Religion of Peace” website to see that there have been more than 17,506 acts of Muslim violence since 9/11/2001. Da Tech guys lists Muslim attacks which sadly, are not making any newspaper front headlines anywhere. Pamela Geller has another astounding list of recent Muslim crimes against non-Muslims.Where are the media? Where is the analysis of the “Manifesto” [the Koran] which drives Muslims to kill?
How many such “horrific” acts have been committed by white “Christian rightwing fundamentalist” people?They can be counted on one hand.
Pat Buchanan who wrote yesterday that Breivik’s violent act is a “fire bell in the night for Norway.”It is that.
Did we learn nothing from World War II?Liberal Jewish Democrat friends of President Roosevelt ignored his virulent anti-Semitism. The New York Times refused to cover or deeply buried reports of the Holocaust for years.In 2011, once again, the appeasement media are feeding the crocodile of radical Islam while demonizing the truth-tellers. By ignoring the Islamic threat and not demanding resolution of immigration, our own national media ensure that more attacks will come:

“And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.” [hat tip: RS McCain.]
