Pat Buchanan, fd medarbetare till såväl Richard Nixon och Ronald Reagan, har anslutit sig till det gäng av tyckare som anser att ”Breivik may be right”.
A good rule of thumb for political commentary — or life in general — is that terrorists are never right. People who go on mass shooting sprees are never right. The man or woman who lights the fuse on a bomb that blows up a government building is never right. Their actions are wrong, and the ideas that motivated them are wrong.
Pat Buchanan, however, has discovered in the insane bigotry that allegedly animated Anders Behring Breivik’s horrendous acts of violence in Norway a lesson about Europe and Islam that we maybe should take to heart.
After a perfunctory denunciation of Breivik as an ”evil … cold-blooded, calculating killer,” Buchanan notes that Breivik’s motivation was ”to bring attention to his ideas and advance his cause: a Crusader’s war between the real Europe and the ‘cultural Marxists’ and Muslims they invited in to alter the ethnic character and swamp the culture of the Old Continent.”
Buchanan then gives the alleged terrorist an assist, writing that Breivik’s vision of a grand conflict between European Muslims and Christians ”may be right”: Media Matters
Tilläggas kan att samma Buchanan kläckte ur sig följande när Obama utnämnde Elena Kagan till US HD; ”If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats. Is this the Democrats’ idea of diversity”.
För den som undrar stöttade Buchanan Georg W Bush i valet 2004.
