Extremism strikes!

Christian fundamentalist gunman posts manifesto about why he did what he did. He's against the concept of Eurabia.
Um, dude, you do know where Christianity came from, don't you?

We are reminded again that stupidity is a universal concept that doesn't discriminate between races and genders.

Had this happened in Iraq, or Pakistan, or Afghanistan, or Israel, or Palestine - I'd be glancing over the headline - same old story, read it a hundred times.

I don't know if that's wrong? It's just the way it is. I guess it's like the vagabond crackhead on the street spending another night in cells for some property crime or violent confrontation compared to a Hollywood star doing the same thing.

How many people died of thirst or hunger today making the trek through bone-dry southern Somalia to Kenya? Dozens? Hundreds? More... Let me check the middle pages of the newspaper, possibly buried, probably not.

My eyes remain glued to the freak tragedy unfolding. The conspiracy theories behind twisted motivations of mass murder. Neutral Norway in shock. Too neutral for some.
