    Most of you should be familiar with Pam Geller, the lunatic anti-Muslim hatemonger who's revered in the Islamaphobe section of American conservatism,

    and who apparently makes a good living selling hatred of Islam.

    Well, things didn't go that well for her this weekend, as is told better than I could at slate.com:

    Christian Terrorism

    If Muslims are responsible for Islamic terrorism, are Muslim-bashers responsible for the massacre in Norway?

    By William Saletan

    Posted Monday, July 25, 2011, at 8:53 AM ET

    On Friday, anti-Islamist blogger Pamela Geller pounced on news of a massacre in Oslo. "Jihad in Norway?" she asked. She posted a second item—"You cannot avoid the consequences of ignoring jihad"—and linked to a previous one: "Norway: ALL Rapes in Past 5 Years Committed by Muslims."

    As the Oslo body count grew, she piled on: "if I hear another television or radio reporter refer to muhammad as 'the Prophet Muhammad,' I think I am going to puke. He's not your prophet, assclowns."

    Then things went horribly wrong. It turned out that the suspected terrorist in Norway wasn't a Muslim. He hated Muslims. And he admired Geller.


    Anders Breivik's Christian Terrorism in Norway: Are Pamela Geller and other anti-Islamist bloggers responsible? - By William Saletan - Slate Magazine

    I guess, occasionally, peddling bigotry and inciting hate can be a bumpy ride.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Somebody keep count of how many USMB 'wingers drop in to condemn Geller for politicizing the tragedy as it was happening. :lol:

    I don't know who Geller is (I've never heard of her), but in spite of the spin Slate puts on the story, she still makes a valid point. If governments ignore Jihad (like the Norwegians have by allowing massive waves of Muslims to immigrate to Norway legally and otherwise), private citizens like this madman will act alone.

    Some would argue these attacks were just that.

    Not at all. He's a despicable, twisted murderer that should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

    Pushing hate? Try again son, real "hate" is 19 jihad crazed Muslims crashing planes into the WTC. Islam is a violent religion, sorry if the truth offends you.

    Zander is just saying the obvious. He did not state he excused the guy from his actions. Not once. Multiculturalism is ruining European nations and the people are fixing to wake up and many already have. This massacre will bring enough attention to it as it already has started in the media with people talking about it. The German Chancellor has woke up and realized that multiculturalism (mainly muslim) hasn't worked in Germany as she stated it last year. The influx of muslims intruding into these nations is having a negative effect. They are disrupting the traditional European culture and customs. They have succeeded into getting Sharia law enacted in several nations over there. This could be the Reichstag Fire many Europeans are wanting to preserve their European heritage, culture and traditions and that they have been looking for as a excuse to take massive action against intruding muslims who have tainted and infiltrated what they want to preserve.

    The Reichstag fire was a staged event that the Nazis used to seize power and cause WWII and the Holocaust. A fine comparison you are working out there, Adolph.
