rufus-t-firefly: After seeing so many people claim that Fascists and Nazis were left-wingers, I am no longer surprised at the bullshiat that people will pull out of their asses to make sure the entire left gets tarred by what the extreme right does.


Truly, a Mobius Strip of myopic asshattery.

Botkin of the Yard: Is there anything new on this Helpers of Global Jihad group? Because the NYT still has their supposed claim of responsibility included in their reporting.

Was that claim even verified?


No. Nothing's verified about the accused's affiliations.

BBC News showing a press conference with the PM of Norway, just confirmed that the shooter is Norwegian.

"A terror group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad, issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, according to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at C.N.A., a research institute that studies terrorism. The message said the attack was a response to Norwegian forces' presence in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad."

The shooter was confirmed as Norwegian on a pressconference going on now with Prime Minister and Justiceminister.

I don't understand that picture. It was terrorists. Don't know if they are domestic or imported. How could a bombing not be done by terrorists unless it was an assassination attempt?

It could be both.


If it were both it would have still been carried out by a terrorist. It seems that no matter what you've done since, if you get the terrorist title associated with your name you will always be a terrorist. You fark one cow and suddenly you're the town's cow farker.

No. But I bet "Global Jihad Helper" really spices up that boring casserole.

An update on the island shooting and all the words they said were:

"Many killed and more are missing."

Those are some depressing words. The confirmed number of people dead on the island as of now is 10, but this will increase. Perhaps as much as up to 50 as was first speculated.

That's since been recanted, allegedly.

Interesting to take responsibility and then recant. Not unprecedented, but this usually occurs between competing islamic groups. Not between two groups that have nothing to do with each other. Very strange. This will be interesting to see how it unfolds.

thamike: Badgerlad: thamike: Darth_Lukecash: They haven't "done" anything wrong in the eyes of normal people. However, they did have a political cartoon of Mohammed with a bomb for a Turban.

That was Denmark. Norwegian newspapers just reprinted it, much like many other European publications.

Norwegian papers were the most recent to reprint them, though. Well over a year after they ran in Denmark.

And for the people turning this into a US politics thing: Contrary to what you like to think, not everything is about you.

Same for the ones going on about Christian vs. Muslim terrorists... Besides, everyone knows anyone who's ever prayed to anyone is a murdering psycho, right?

Norwegians: Stay strong, my Nordic neighbors.

Not quite sure why you singled me out, of all people, for a soapbox moment.

They later retracted that claim. Honestly, anyone can claim an attack was their responsibility, doesn't mean they did it.

Are you all the same people who, when that representative got shot in Tuscon, all crammed in here to blame it on the Muslims and/or the Mexicans?

People were blaming teabaggers in that thread.

They were, but that's already gone down the liberal memory hole. We have always been at war with Eastasia.

The Norwegian state broadcaster has already reported that a jihadist group has taken responsibility for the attacks and cited the republishing of the Muhammad cartoons as a reason.

/hey, I know! Let's invite millions more of these barbarians to live in the West over the next several decades! What could possibly go wrong?

Barbarians are white. Get your facts straight.

Ja, pretty typical, huh?

Somehow reminds me of Bestamor after a really bad earthquake in California. "Well, now, that was interesting."

Casualties are up, to seven dead in Oslo, nine dead at the youth camp. (Globe and Mail, one hour ago)

Stephen Harper is calling the attacks "barbarous". Just like him to blame the gays. OK. Enough of that then.

Now the shooter is identified as a Norwegian, tall, and blonde. Still no word on whether he is a Muslim.

I am just waiting with baited breath for terrorists to use a blonde convert as a suicide bomber. Then we'll see how far racial profiling will go and how much Hollywood celebrities will whine about being randomly checked while non-whites who might be Muslims are not checked at all, making it possible for a Sikh, a Hassidic Jew, or an African to fly without being profiled every time he steps into an airport.

The cable news outfits are all flying people out to Norway right now. I'm sure their coverage will increase some tomorrow once they have reporters to put on camera and maybe some more facts are known. If not, then someone should tell them that Casey Anthony is in Norway.

the_sidewinder

Think of it this way, lets say there is a meth lab just down the street from you, and it gets reported. Next you see the cops and hazmat show up to every home in the block, kicking down everyone's doors, beating them all, cuffing them, charging them as being accessories to the crime (they did let the meth lab set up in their block after all) and throwing them into jail

What now?
A meth lab is easily concealed. Who harbors terrorists & worships terrorists... less so.

but shhhhhh don'tt tell nobody, it's a double super see-kret where he is, and that thousands lined up cheering this mass murderer.

Seems like it is going to be a really really intense loner with lots of time. You know, "he was very quiet" "spent most of his time on the internet in the basement". Too early to tell though.

Yeah the times changed the story after I had posted the link
"Conflicting reports centered on one group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad. According to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at C.N.A., a research institute, the group issued a statement claiming responsibility, saying the attack was a response to the presence of Norwegian forces in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad.

But Norwegian television reports later suggested that the group had denied responsibility. In the immediate aftermath of recent terrorist attacks, jihadi forums are often filled with claims and counterclaims that are impossible to independently confirm."
