As soon as something as horrible as the Oslo bombing and Utöya shooting happens, it is like everybody starts surfing it to further their pet ideologies.
People saying things like “vote right wing parties with nationalistic ideas out” (the feeling of being “silenced” is exactly one of the things that creates McVeighs and Breiviks).
Nationalists will ofcourse claim that the purp was feeling desperate and cornered and felt he had no other option, but that they cant condone his actions (exactly the same argument as Islamist terrorists would use).
I for one emidiatly thought “Islam”.
The fact that i have lived in a country where terrorists where red headed and military was patrolling the streets at bank deliveries (i almost shat myself. If i would have sneezed i would be full of holes now) didnt make a difference.
The fact that i´m aware of Japanese terrorists that where neither Muslims nor Christians didnt make a difference either.
Grant it, Islamic terrorism is over represented in the world FOR NOW.
So here we are, looking at each other.
Seeking that scape goat.
Furthering our ideolical agendas.
PEOPLE ARE DEAD, FOR REAL,AS IN ” DO NO LONGER EXIST”!
Maybe we should be looking at ouselves?
Maybe some fucking introspection?
