Media Concept of Terrorist in Norway

Filed under: Uncategorized — trp2011 @ 5:12 PM

United States reaction to the bombing of a government building and killings of a youth camp in Norway:

First: It’s a radical Muslin militant!

Second: The person was blond, blue-eyed, and fair-skinned: he was disguised!

Third: Well, it was a far-right Christian man, but you need to watch out for those Muslim terrorists! (Oh yes, and the right-wing Christian did this horrible thing because he was insane.)

As the conservatives consider profiling to search for terrorist, perhaps they would want to profile tall, blond Nordic-looking people or look at right-wing Christian fanatics. But probably not.

Conservatives, including Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly, are “appalled” that the media would refer to the killer as “Christian.” O’Reilly denied that the man could possibly be Christian. “That’s impossible,” he said. “No one believing in Jesus commits mass murder. The man might have called himself a Christian on the net, but he is certainly not of that faith.” (So the people who kill doctors who perform abortions can be Christians because they murder only one person at a time?)
