Nobody knows what's really going on in Oslo or at the holiday camp island in Norway where a bombing and a shooting have left many people dead, but it's always safe for American Idiots on the Internet to jump in with a suspect ("Muslims") and a verdict ("guilty") and a list of co-conspirators ("Obama and the liberals") and a punishment ("kill 'em all"). No matter that a
Thanks for takin&#039; one for the team DD.
When our wingers talk about how Obama is destroying America, they are setting up the rhetorical argument to act like a nutty Norwegian and start shooting. After all, &quot;destroying America&quot; is an existential threat, it demands a destructive response.
America cannot be defined, standardized or understood except in terms of the people here who live, work, vote, enlist, volunteer, argue, pay taxes, help each other. The wingers should already know that. It <i>is</i> the literal embodiment of that &quot;plain language of the Constitution&quot; they claim to love.
Thank you for being the voice of reason.
The scary thing is how Muslim terrorists are now blonde and blue-eyed. I will not be able to watch Fox News*\\ babes without wondering what they&#039;re <i>really</i> thinking.
A self-evident truth worthy of Thaddeus McCotter.
Ouch! And now I can&#039;t afford to create moar jobz.
A plan elegant in its simplicity, as explained above and in the film &quot;Loose Hope and Change&quot;.
I can&#039;t believe you used &quot;Sarah Palin&trade;&quot; and &quot;help&quot; in the same sentence. Unless you meant &quot;help end all hope&quot;.
&quot;everyone&quot; is dog whistle for &quot;brown people&quot;.
I love the &quot;obviously&quot;. When it fits their predispositions, something like this is obvious. But when actual facts differ, it&#039;s a conspiracy or falsehood.
Obviously, without the authority to borrow money, the U.S. government will not be able to pay its bills. Except Giethner, Obama, Moody&#039;s and common-sense are all lying.
Obviously, global climate is warming jeopardizing our future. Except the scientists have &quot;doctored&quot; the data. (Though technically, they <i>are</i> PhDs to anything they do is &quot;doctoring&quot;..)
Obviously, the Bush tax cuts did not create jobs or prosperity for almost anyone. Except, they did.
I&#039;m not sure this even happened in Norway. All those blondes makes it look like Fox News headquarters.
This is pretty close to the truth, sadly enough.
Backtracking I&#039;ve seen so far: 1. He&#039;s not the real shooter; this is just a government coverup to protect the Muslims and/or provide cover for Norway&#039;s siding with the Palestinians. 2. All right, he&#039;s the shooter, but a right winger in Norway is somehow equivalent to a left winger in the U.S. (I&#039;m not sure why; Coriolis forces?) 3. Forget the left wing/right wing stuff, the real issue is that this is what happens when you ban guns. What? Guns aren&#039;t banned in Norway? In fact, gun ownership (for hunting and marksmanship) is quite common there? Well, then it&#039;s because the kids weren&#039;t open-carrying handguns at all times, even when swimming. (Yes, someone actually made that argument.)
is this true (there is no way i&#039;m going over to investigate)?
Right wing Christian! Stop them. No moar churches in my neighborhood.

Repetitive redundancy fixed..
That &quot;level of competence&quot; is the down-side of Norway&#039;s mandatory military service.
Take out all the people who loved Palin&#039;s movie. Only 1745 to go....
