"The recent killings in Norway were horrific. As usual in such cases, the media give the killer exactly what he wants: worldwide fame. We aren't told the names of the people who were killed - almost as if they are not considered to be important enough, yet the media frenzy to turn the killer into a Jack The Ripper star is .... repulsive. He should be un-named, not photographed, and quietly led away. The comment I made onstage at Warsaw could be further explained this way: Millions of beings are routinely murdered every single day in order to fund profits for McDonalds and KFCruelty, but because these murders are protected by laws, we are asked to feel indifferent about the killings, and to not even dare question them. If you quite rightly feel horrified at the Norway killings, then it surely naturally follows that you feel horror at the murder of ANY innocent being. You cannot ignore animal suffering simply because animals 'are not us.'"
Morrissey and his mouth are causing controversy again. The UK Mirror reports that his remarks about the Norway massacre weren't received very well at a concert over the weekend:
The controversial singer, 52, made his remark while on stage at a gig in Warsaw on Sunday night. Before launching into his hit Meat is Murder, the outspoken vegetarian made reference to the horrific events last Friday.
Referring to the death toll as thought at the time he said: “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried S*** every day.”
Said the singer's spokesman: “Morrissey has decided not to comment any further as he believes his statement speaks for itself.”
A lesbian couple were among those who rushed to the aid of young campers in Norway under siege by gunman Anders Behring Breivik last Friday.
A translation via The People's Forum:
Hege Dalen and her partner Toril Hansen were eating supper in the camping area opposite Utoya island when they started hearing gunshots and screaming....
Dalen and Hansen drove their boat to the island, and fished out of the water people who were in shock and young people who were injured and transported them ashore. Every now and then bullets almost hit the boat.
Since they couldn't fit everyone into the boat all at once, they returned to the island four times. They might have saved as much as forty people from the clutches of the killer.
Gay Conservative Bruce Bawer 'Stunned to Discover' That Oslo Killer Anders Breivik Cited His Islamophobic Writing
Gay conservative Bruce Bawer writes in a WSJ editorial today that he was "stunned to discover" that Anders Behring Breivik, the Christian fundamentalist gunman who took the lives of at least 92 people over the weekend in Oslo, Norway, cited Bawer's book While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam Is Destroying the West from Within, a book which has been described as "racism as criticism", in a 1500-page manifesto that Breivik posted online.
In his manifesto, which is written in such good English that one wonders whether he had the assistance of a native speaker, Breivik quotes approvingly and at length from my work, mentioning my name 22 times. It is chilling to think that blog entries that I composed in my home in west Oslo over the past couple of years were being read and copied out by this future mass-murderer in his home in west Oslo.
It is also chilling to see the way he moves from a legitimate concern about genuine problems to an unspeakably evil "solution." In bombing those government buildings and hunting down those campers, Breivik was not taking out people randomly. He considered the Labor Party, Norway's dominant party since World War II, responsible for policies that are leading to the Islamization of Europe—and thus guilty of treason.
The Oslo bombing was intended to be an execution of the party's current leaders. The massacre at the camp—where young would-be politicians gathered to hear speeches by Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and former Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland—was meant to destroy its next generation of leaders.
During the hours when I thought that Oslo had been attacked by jihadists, I wept for the city that has been my home for many years.
Bawer has also written extensively on how he believes gay bashings in Europe are due to its 'Islamization':
"It’s very clear what’s going on here – and where it’s all headed. Europe is on its way down the road of Islamization, and it’s reached a point along that road at which gay people’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is being directly challenged, both by knife-wielding bullies on the street and by taxpayer-funded thugs whose organizations already enjoy quasi-governmental authority. Sharia law may still be an alien concept to some Westerners, but it’s staring gay Europeans right in the face – and pointing toward a chilling future for all free people. Pim Fortuyn saw all this coming years ago; most of today’s European leaders still refuse to see it even though it’s right before their eyes."
