I've been reading a few articles on Anders Behring Breivik, the twisted mind behind the Norway massacres. I wasn't aware until now, though, that he had written a manifesto, let alone one that referenced Christian bloggers such as Fr. Dwight Longenecker.
The predictable narrative has already begun to take hold [writes Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. in Catholic Lane]. The confessed perpetrator of a bombing of government offices in Oslo and a seek-and-destroy operation at a Labor Party youth camp on Utoya Island, Anders Behring Breivik, is depicted as a “Christian,” “conservative” and/or “right-wing extremist.” His attacks, we are told, were animated by a delusional ambition to save his country from an Islamic take-over.
Hmm. Sounds like a replay of this last January, when the liberal MSM began to blame Sarah Palin and the Tea Party for Jared Lee Loughner's attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
So tell me: When are we going to hold Sir Paul McCartney and the estate of John Lennon accountable for Charles Manson and the Tate/LaBianca murders?
