    Suspect admired bloggers who believe Europe is drowning in Muslims - CNN.com

    Do you think that Breivik was influenced by writers like Geller? do you believe that an appropriate response to that influence is self-censorship as obliquely urged by Goldberg?

    What is the proper response to psychotic killers with political agendas? How do you think that Norway will respond (in terms of freedom of speech issues)?

    The only response to mass murderers is either to execute them, or lock them up until they die.

    While he may have agreed with geller on the influence of islam on current european politics there was no direction by her to go out and start shooting either liberal multiculturalists or muslims.

    I am not sure how Norway will respond, but one area they have to improve is thier police response time. 90 minutes is far too long for a lone gunman to have to shoot people.

    His own twisted brain is what inspired him!

    Europe is getting take over by Islam. Islam is a huge threat to Western society and the world! Sharia law is a threat to our wives and daughter's rights.

    But one madman wrongful and immoral actions doesn't change that. In fact, Breivik actually helped the fourth Islamic caliphate. He helped increase islamic immigration to Europe!

    He had a few hundred kroner bet with a friend that if he massacred a bunch of his countrymen the New York Times would label him a deranged right wing Christian kook.

    I do think hate speech influences people. Look how far Hitler got with it.

    There's nothing you can really do about it, though, without making things worse.

    If I were Geller I'd be ashamed of myself, but I see she has decided to blame Muslims for the murders. Which is quite an ironic deflection.

    His friend was a kook, if he took the bet. We didnt need the NYT to tell us that. His own words and writing made it perfectly clear.
