New York Times Reader Kills Dozens in Norway – HUMAN EVENTS | Ann Coulter


The New York Times wasted no time in jumping to conclusions about Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian who staged two deadly attacks in Oslo last weekend, claiming in the first two paragraphs of one story that he was a “gun-loving,” “right-wing,” “fundamentalist Christian,” opposed to “multiculturalism.”

It may as well have thrown in “Fox News-watching” and “global warming skeptic.”

This was a big departure from the Times’ conclusion-resisting coverage of the Fort Hood shooting suspect, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan​. Despite reports that Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar!” as he gunned down his fellow soldiers at a military medical facility in 2009, only one of seven Times articles on Hasan so much as mentioned that he was a Muslim.

Of course, that story ran one year after Hasan’s arrest, so by then, I suppose, the cat was out of the bag.

In fact, however, Americans who jumped to conclusions about Hasan were right and New York Times reporters who jumped to conclusions about Breivik were wrong.

True, in one lone entry on Breivik’s gaseous 1,500-page manifesto, “2083: A European Declaration of Independence,” he calls himself “Christian.” But unfortunately he also uses a great number of other words to describe himself, and these other words make clear that he does not mean “Christian” as most Americans understand the term. (Incidentally, he also cites The New York Times more than a half-dozen times.)

Had anyone at the Times actually read Breivik’s manifesto, they would have seen that he uses the word “Christian” as a handy moniker to mean “European, non-Islamic” — not a religious Christian or even a vague monotheist. In fact, at several points in his manifesto, Breivik stresses that he has a beef with Christians for their soft-heartedness. (I suppose that’s why the Times is never worried about a “Christian backlash.”)

A casual perusal of Breivik’s manifesto clearly shows that he uses the word “Christian” similarly to the way some Jewish New Yorkers use it to mean “non-Jewish.” In this usage, Christopher Hitchens and Madalyn Murray O’Hair are “Christians.”

I told a Jewish gal trying to set me up with one of her friends once that he had to be Christian, and she exclaimed that she had the perfect guy: a secular Muslim atheist. (This was the least-popular option on the ’60s board game Dream Date, by the way).

Breivik is very clear that you don’t even have to believe in God to join his movement, saying in a self-interview:

Q: Do I have to believe in God or Jesus in order to become a Justiciar Knight?

A: As this is a cultural war, our definition of being a Christian does not necessarily constitute that you are required to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus.

He goes on to say that a “Christian fundamentalist theocracy” is “everything we DO NOT want,” and a “secular European society” is “what we DO want.”

“It is enough,” Breivik says, “that you are a Christian-agnostic or a Christian-atheist.” That statement doesn’t even make sense in America.

At the one and only meeting of Breivik’s “Knights Templar” in London in 2002, there were nine attendees, three of whom he describes as “Christian atheists” and one as a “Christian agnostic.” (Another dozen people mistook it for a Renaissance Faire and were turned away.)

Breivik clearly explains that his “Knights Templar” is “not a religious organization but rather a Christian ‘culturalist’ military order.” He even calls on the “European Jewish, Buddhist and Hindu community” to join his fight against “the Islamization of Europe.”

He doesn’t believe in Christianity or want anyone else to, but apparently supports celebrating Christmas simply to annoy Muslims.

Breivik says he is “not an excessively religious man,” brags that he is “first and foremost a man of logic,” calls himself “economically liberal” and reveres Darwinism.

But Times reporters had their “Eureka!” moment as soon as they heard Breivik used the word “Christian” someplace to identify himself. No one at the Times bothered to read Breivik’s manifesto to see that he doesn’t use the term the way the rest of us do. That might have interfered with the paper’s obsessive Christian-bashing.

Other famous killers dubbed conservative Christians by the Times include Timothy McVeigh and Jared Loughner​.

McVeigh was a pot-smoking atheist who said, “Science is my religion.”

Similarly, Breivik says in his manifesto that “it is essential that science take an undisputed precedence over biblical teachings” –- a statement that would be incomprehensible to all the real scientists, such as Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Descartes, Bacon, Newton, Mendel, Pasteur, Planck, Einstein and Pauli, all of whom believed the whole purpose of science was to understand God.

The Tucson shooter, Jared Loughner, was lyingly described by the Times as a pro-life fanatic. Not only did more honest news outlets, such as ABC News, report exactly the opposite — for example, how Loughner alarmed his classmates by laughing about an aborted baby in class — but Loughner’s friends described him as “left wing,” “a political radical,” “quite liberal” and “a pothead.” Another said Loughner’s mother was Jewish.

The only reason Timothy McVeigh has gone down in history as a right-wing Christian and Jared Loughner has not — despite herculean efforts by much of the mainstream media to convince us otherwise — is that by January 2011 when Loughner went on his murder spree, conservatives had enough media outlets to reveal the truth.

As explained in the smash best-seller “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America,” the liberal rule is: Any criminal act committed by a white man with a gun is a right-wing, Christian conspiracy, whereas any criminal act committed by a nonwhite is the government violating someone’s civil liberties.

It’s too bad Breivik wasn’t a Muslim extremist open about his Jihadist views, because I hear the Army is looking for a new psychiatrist down at Fort Hood.

The Naples Daily News reported a shooting as follows:

The three men accused of the armed-home invasion robbery, Fidel Abel Marrero-Rodriguez, 27; Pedro Louis Herrera, 25; and Yadier Gonzalez-Rodriguez, 27, are also facing a charge of impersonating a law enforcement officer.

One of the men pointed a weapon at the head of his wife. Bracey’s one daughter was also in the dwelling. After Bracey managed to retreive his weapon, there was a shootout inside his home. Bracey managed to fire one round into the shoulder of one of the assailants, and all the assailants ran out and into the nearby woods. The Collier County Sheriff’s Office deputies captured three of the men, and one is still missing.

Liberals Think Fiscal Discipline is Crazy! | Michael A. Needham


Heritage Action for America View This Online

Paul Krugman wants Conservative Thought Censored
The Left is Running Scared
James Pat,

It’s not news that The New York Times’ outspoken liberal columnist Paul Krugman is calling conservatives "crazy." What’s news is that he believes the media is giving too much air time to conservative views, aiding and abetting what he describes as "the cult that is destroying America."

According to Krugman, refusing to raise taxes on small businesses, family farmers and other job creators is "insane":

"We have a crisis in which the right is making insane demands, while the president and Democrats in Congress are bending over backward to be accommodating — offering plans that are all spending cuts and no taxes, plans that are far to the right of public opinion."

Learn more: fiscal conservatism is what our country needs right now.

Mr. Krugman, who thinks President Obama is a "moderate conservative," believes it is a "moral failure" to report dissenting opinions. It would be a moral failure to not point out the truth, which is that the past two and a half years have racked up more debt and more spending than previously imaginable.

It would be a moral failure to allow the current situation to go by without seriously changing how Washington spends your money, and your children’s money.

Learn more: now is the time for spending cuts.

We have the chance to save the American Dream for our children and grandchildren. Unfortunately, the Washington Establishment and the Liberal Elite are blasting principled conservatives in their effort to preserve the big-government status quo.

Heritage Action for America is committed to the fight against overspending and overtaxing. We’re standing with you, the American people, in ensuring that the American dream remains within reach for your children and grandchildren.

Together we can make a difference in their future, get involved today.

Sincerely,

With Wu Through, Who’s Up? – HUMAN EVENTS | John Gizzi


Twenty-four hours after he announced he would not seek reelection, embattled Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.) made headlines with another announcement: that, after voting to raise the debt ceiling in a few days, he would resign from Congress and thus set the stage for the fourth special election for the House this year.

Small wonder. The recent charges that he had had sex with the teenage daughter of a supporter in 2010 has led to an Ethics Committee probe and, perhaps, prosecution on criminal charges. The latest bombshell came on the heels of an earlier admission of treatment for mental disorders by the 56-year-old congressman and reports of his bizarre behavior (including sending out photographs of him dressed in a tiger costume). But the latest salvo was the most serious. With a KATU (Portland) News poll showing 75% of Wu’s constituents wanted him out now, and the state’s two Democratic senators (Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley) calling on him to resign, the seven-termer finally decided to quit rather than fight.

The timing and the nature of the resulting special election depend largely on Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber. Should he call the election within 80 days of the 1st District seat (Portland) becoming vacant, there would be a special primary and special election. However, if Kitzhaber waits eighty days, there would only be a special election, and the parties would select their nominee through convention or caucus.

Even before Wu’s exit, there was no shortage of Democratic candidates. State Rep. Brad Witt of Clatskanie and State Labor and Industries Commissioner Brad Avakian, both committed liberals, had been running. Now others are likely to get into the sudden special election, among them state Sen. Suzanne Bonamici and former State Sen. Ryan Deckert (now president of the Oregon Business Association).

Although Democrats in the 1st District have nearly nearly 50,000 more registered voters than Republicans, and have held the House seat without interruption since 1974, Republicans are expected to field a strong candidate and wage a strong race. The two names most mentioned as candidates are conservatives who ran the impressive campaigns against Wu: Molly Bordonaro, longtime associate of George W. Bush and former U.S. ambassador to Malta, who lost to Wu by a tight 50% to 47% the last time the seat was open (1998), and sporting goods entrepreneur Rob Cornilles, who raised $607,000 and held the incumbent to a 52% to 42% margin last year.
