They are determined that this will not engender a culture of fear and paranoia...

Unlike the culture of fear and paranoia- stoked at every opportunity by the TeaBaggers & fundagelicals - that the U.S. is currently in the grip of.

"All of that has zero to do with a nut job killing children in Norway. If you are civilized and sensible you will not conflate the two because if you make the connection between what he has done an what you see as excessive immigration, you excuse and justify what he has done. Civilized people cannot excuse what he has done. Sensible people would not excuse it.

Are you sensible and civilized? If so, please raise your concerns about Norway's immigration in another context."


"if you make the connection between what he has done an what you see as excessive immigration, you excuse and justify what he has done."??

A number of points Jack that I will put as simply as I can.

1: Breivik himself stated that the Norwegian Government's immigration policies were part of the reason he carried his attack AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT - Note against the Government not against any immigrant.

2: I have no view at all that could be considered anti-immigrant with respect to Norway. It would be very hard for me to justify such a view seeing as quite a few years ago now I used to be what you could term as "an immigrant to Norway" (unlike you I have actually spent a great deal of time in the country)

3: At no time at all have I ever attempted to either justify of excuse what this monster did - In fact quite the reverse.

You post - "Get a grip yourself. Take your bigotry elsewhere. It is not appropriate here." - addressed to Akenaton??

Taking the noun bigot to mean - a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.

It would appear that you are the only bigot posting to this thread.

"If they have continue to have such politically charged events with such a small amount of security, I would be surprised."

"such politically charged events" - A youth rally?? The Prime Minister of Norway Jens Stoltenberg more or less promised the country that this incident would not rob the country of the slightest vestige of it's democracy or deny any branch of his Party the use of, and freedom to enjoy, the facilities on Utřya. A memorial will be erected there within the next 12 months and in all probability it will be unveiled when the Youth Movement of the AUP reconvene to hold there Rally there next year.

Did the attacks of 7/7 stop people using buses or the Underground? No they bloody well did not. The people of Norway will not be cowed by the actions of a single maniac.

""Will you all please give the sarcasm a rest.

Well done Jack! You pick the only person who wasn't being sarcastic to attack.

My point was the precise opposite of your misinterpretation, since I made a genuine attempt to say that Mary was looking at this from a different cultural perspective, and far from being stupid, was trying her best to understand that difference.

I don't think myself very clever at all, but I do read what people are actually saying before sticking my foot in my mouth.

Don T, I didn't take what you said as sarcasm but just a little broad. Police in the US do not pick up someone walking alone and deliver them anywhere. Not in my experience.

I have had a police car stop and ask me if I was OK. I have had the cop tell me that he'll keep an eye out for my return. I have never been threatened by them in any way but I have also never been told I couldn't/shouldn't walk there.

I have had a cop ask me if I was being harassed by another pedestrian and being assured that I could handle myself went on his way.

Ebbie, who now lives in an area where people/women walk alone any hour of the day or night but lived also in Oregon, Michigan and Virginia where she was more circumspect.

The bigotry being displayed on this thread is yours and yours alone Jack.

The information relating to the immigrant population in Oslo was introduced to explain why the Norwegian authorities immediately after the explosion were specifically emphasising that they did not know who was responsible.

I passed on what was heard in one interview in which what the interviewee said was not made perfectly clear.

This you leapt on and worried like a dog with a rag. You write much but say very little.

Police in the US do not pick up someone walking alone and deliver them anywhere.

It happened often when I was growing up in rural Wisconsin. The cops thought it their job to know all the kids, and to keep them out of trouble by giving them friendly attention. It was a nice way to grow up. I have the impression that still exists in Scandinavia - and probably also in places in the U.S. with Scandinavian roots like Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and the Dakotas.

Oh, Teribus -

I meant to say something about your comments about Americans and their mistreatment of Native Americans. You're right - to a point. But most people who are Americans now, are people of lower-class European roots who came much later that those who decimated the American Indians.

My point, Joe O, was that the roots of the Native American decimation began with non-native born people in the new world. They were primarily English. Perhaps they taught the next generations too well.

I'm confused. You admit that it happens. Yet you question my knowledge that it happens? Perhaps I know from personal experience?

Guess you haven't been paying attention for the last 30 years of news reports?

My wife and I were the first non-African Americans in this neighborhood. I don't know of any "white neighborhoods" in this area. But there are gated communities. I wouldn't recommend that any kid go and just walk around there but everywhere else they are more or less left alone unless they are wearing gang or prison style clothes and not otherwise acting suspiciously.

If you were saying that young people are being hauled off to jail just for being black. I would dispute that. If you are saying that socioeconomically Blacks are more likely to display the behaviors that would cause them to be dragged off to jail, I don't know.

Do you think that cop had the problem with the Boston cop because he was black or because he acted like he had a chip on his shoulder? Its sometimes difficult to tell.

Guess you've never heard of the offense of "Drivilg while Black" either?

Both. And this sort of thing is hardly an uncommon occurrence.

That is perhaps true. But those concerns do not have a place in a civilized conversation about this action. Any fruit of these murders is tainted. Any action or condemnation of the intended victims, whether Muslim immigrant or Norwegian government worker or liberal protesting child is corrupted.

I am not asking you to not discuss these things. I am saying that you should discuss them on a separate thread.

Guns do kill people, particularly religious guns, fanatical guns, and the Synecdoche does work here. The only way to address this issue is to determine that there are Christian terrorists in the world and they have to be watched as equally as Islamic terrorists or Jewish terrorists.

There is no security unless we understand this aberration.

anecdotal evidence, Noun
        1. information obtained from personal accounts, examples, and observations. Usually not considered scientifically valid but may indicate areas for further investigation and research.
        2. A limited selection of examples which may support or refute an argument, but which are not supported by scientific or statistical analysis.


The evidence I have, Jack, is not anecdotal, but comes from the statements of the Black folks involved, court cases, investigations into police misconduct, and substantiated reports in the media since about 1965 or so.

Christian terrorists??.....Surely not, Christians should define themselves as non aggresive.

Do you mean the Norwegian? I dont think he was motivated by Christian belief......politics or psychosis....they usually go together.

Or do you just mean terrorists who happen to be brought up as Christians?

Muslim terrorism is something completely different.
