Giffords. Did we not learn anything from that episode?
Edit: blame the board software.. for some reason it moved "[/url]" into the middle of the url text. But all you had to do was click on link "did you mean"...
And yes it is in Norwegian, so what.. ever heard of google translate? The original story was only posted 2 hours ago, so it takes time for it to be spread to the English speaking world.
Good question.. I suspect it has something to do with his issues with the parties immigration policies.. if it was because he thought they were too strict or not strict enough, well time will tell.What is "not right wing enough"?

Yes, I'm familiar with Google translate, as well as its unreliability.And yes it is in Norwegian, so what.. ever heard of google translate? The original story was only posted 2 hours ago, so it takes time for it to be spread to the English speaking world.

[QUOTE=Grant;1059678099]It is the far right of European politics based on xenophobia and anti-immigration feelings.
No problem. Was able to track it down. It seems the Progress Party is in line with the thinking of many Europeans. It's philosophies are not all that uncommon in Europe and are being opposed by the "leftwingers", whose visions for Europe's future appear to be quite different.
Yea and the NYT posted that it was Islamists claiming responsibility.... just saying. I am reading the comments over the next few hours in the original version. But from what I have read already.... he is a right winger on the extreme right. He rambles on about political correctness and Marxists. He dislikes the UN and multiculturalism... So far all classic right wing policies.The blog containing his views has been posted.
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
There are signs the local farmer, 32, may have had right-wing, Christian fundamentalist views
Is this not what the media did with the Giffords episode but then had to wipe the egg from their faces? The article states *may*, you state *fact*.
Okay I have read back almost 3 years of his rantings.
He sounds like quite a few of the right wingers on these boards. Does this sound familiar?
Islam has historically killed 300 million peopleIslam(isme) har historisk ført til 300 millioner dødsfall
Kommunisme har historisk ført til 100 millioner dødsfall
Nazisme har historisk ført til 6-20 millioner dødsfall
Communism has historically killed 100 million people
Nazism has historically killed 6-20 million people.
He is against multiculturalism, dislikes the UN as he sees them as forcing multiculturalism on countries with its refugee policies. He blames Muslims and left wingers for everything and is a cultural conservative. He also rambles on how weak the "conservative" parties have become in Norway (including the party he was a member off) and Europe and that if they implemented the strict cultural conservative views he had, then people would flock to them.
He believes his church is weak (he is a protestant, baptised at 15 by his own choice) and wants "back to basics".. he even hints on wanting Norway to become Roman Catholic again...
He also mentions his admiration of Lou Dobbs for standing up to the political correct mass media over illegal immigration in the US.
Also he left the party because he thought they were too political correct and weak on cultural and immigration policies... which is impressive considering their official policies.
There is much more but would take a lot of time to jot down.
Pete was right in the beginning. He said it could have been a right winger, and he mentioned the right wing over there makes the American GOP look like pussies. So now I am a little concerned. It's frightening that Pete was right, and I am wondering what the heck is wrong with the right wing over there. What does their right wing do exactly? What are their goals? Is this going to happen more often?
When I lived in Germany the NPD Party was basically the neo nazi party and filled with hate, but it wasn't that strong. The most I saw them do was try to have nazi rallies march in the streets, but people would quickly counter protest them and they were outnumbered. The right wing in Germany doesn't seem bad at all compared to this.
Not sure if this was updated already (didn't look through more than a few pages back), but just heard on the radio now that the number of deaths is currently 92. RIP.
...we honor leaders for what they achieve, but we often prefer to close our eyes to the way they achieve it...
In the real world, politics is compromise and democracy is politics. Anyone who would be a statesman has to be a successful politician first. Also, a leader has to deal with people and nations as they are, not as they should be. As a result, the qualities required for leadership are not necessary those that we would want our children to emulate - unless we wanted them to be leaders.
