It’s scary what one “person” can do. He detonates a bomb at government headquarters. Then, he takes a ferry to an island where a summer camp is being held. He is able to go on a shooting rampage for an hour and a half, killing over 80 people.
He believes this was necessary. He was anti-Muslim and was part of the party that became the 2nd biggest in 2009. That party ran on an anti-immigration platform. He left because they were too “politically correct.”
These kinds of terrorists can be the most dangerous because they’re almost impossible to keep track of. They think that whatever organization they belong to aren’t doing enough. Not bringing about change fast enough. They branch out on their own and take matters into their own hands.
All of these people are dead because he has a problem with the changing population in Norway. In 15 years, the number of Muslim immigrants tripled to half a million. Anti-immigrant sentiment is rising there, but this guy took it to a whole new level.
It’s scary because we are seeing that here too. Anti-Muslim rhetoric is all over – from protesting the building of a Mosque in TN to sites like Creeping Sharia. And that idiot preacher in Florida who burned the Qur’an? Completely offensive.
I really hope we don’t see something like that here. Throughout our short American history, immigrants have gone through discrimination. It’s sad that it really isn’t changing. Only the group targeted changes.
Maybe this tragedy will help open our eyes. We’re a land of immigrants. And the newest group isn’t the enemy.
