Among all of the right-bloggers who had a major musgasm upon hearing the initial reports out of Oslo (Professor Mustard recovered nicely going from Norway – The Warning Signs Were There to Sometimes news moves too fast for our own good with scarcely a rumple in his cravat) none deserve more special consideration then the amusingly named Astute Bloggers for their 3-part demonstration of how the Self-Correcting Citizen Journalist plies his craft:
First the approach:
Followed by the pivot….
…and the dismount. With a twist:
…where he links to a story that says:
He [Anders Behring Breivik] was known to be active on the internet, expressing extremist Islamophobic views on forums and criticizing immigration policies.
He recently claimed that politics today was not about socialism vs. capitalism but nationalism vs. internationalism. He argued on a Swedish news website that the media were not critical enough about Islam and claimed that Geert Wilders’ Party for Freedom in the Netherlands was the only “true” party of conservatives.
He argued that socialism was breaking down traditions, culture, national identity and other societal structures and that this in turn made society weak and confused.
Leading to the only possible conclusion:
I THINK MAYBE THERE’S A POSSIBILITY THAT THIS BREIVIK IS ACTUALLY A PSYCHOTIC LEFTIST WHO DID THIS HORRIFYING ACT TO DISCREDIT THE RIGHT.
DO YOU THINK THIS IS TOO WEIRD TO BE TRUE!?!? BELIEVE THAT IT COULD NEVER HAPPEN!??
Well yes, I suppose that is a possibility although he certainly sounds more like Pam Geller’s dream date…
