Geller justifies Breivik’s attack

Rick Perry's "Day of Prayer" is one example of right-wing hatemongering. Here's another:

Pam Geller Justifies Breivik’s Terror:  Youth Camp Had More ‘Middle Eastern or Mixed’ Races Than ‘Pure Norwegian’

By Lee FangPopular hate blogger Pam Geller has received scrutiny in recent days as the public became aware that the right-wing terrorist in Norway, Anders Behring Breivik, had praised her blog and thoroughly cited her writing in his political manifesto. After a number of blogs made the connection, as well as the New York Times, the Atlantic, and other major outlets, Geller became incensed and began lashing out at her critics.

In a post defending herself yesterday, Geller—who has called Obama “President Jihad” and claimed that Arab language classes are a plot to subvert the United States—reached a new low. Geller justifies Breivik’s attack on the Norwegian Labour Party summer youth camp because she says the camp is part of an anti-Israel “indoctrination training center.” She says the victims would have grown up to become “future leaders of the party responsible for flooding Norway with Muslims who refuse to assimilate, who commit major violence against Norwegian natives including violent gang rapes, with impunity, and who live on the dole.”

To get her point across, Geller posts a picture of the youth camp children Breivik targeted. The picture was taken on the Utøya island camp about 24 hours before Breivik killed over 30 children, so it is likely Geller is mocking many of the victims. Under the picture, Geller writes: “Note the faces which are more MIddle [sic] Eastern or mixed than pure Norwegian.”
Comment:  Geller's comment about peoplewho refuse to assimilate, who commit major violence..., and who live on the dolecould be any right-winger's complaint about blacks, Latinos, or Indians. "They" are different from "us," and they refuse to act like good white Christian Americans. They're violent, barbaric, and not quite human--i.e., savages. They're lazy, good-for-nothing bums who want only to take from us: our land, wealth, and power.

That's what it's all about, people: brown-skins threatening white-skins. A racist fear and hatred of anyone who's different. According to Geller and her ilk, we need to kill them before they kill us.

These two could be ideological soulmates. One wants to keep brown-skins poor and huddled, the other is okay with killing them outright. The methods are different but the goals are the same: to maintain white Christian American power over the world.

Hilariously, as much as white supremacists look to the north for mascots in recent years, there is no historical evidence that Nordic groups were particularly racist. In ancient times, they were exogamous. More recently, the Danes helped Jews escape the Nazis.

Of course, countries don't wear hats, so people like Breivik exist.
