Tandem Quotes: Anders Breivik & Glenn Beck

The trial of Anders Breivik began this week in Norway. I haven’t been following up on it too closely, but I did read how he was found sane despite everyone assuming he wasn’t. During his testimony Anders Breivik stated regarding the children he slaughtered on Utoeya in July 2011: “They were not innocents…They were in many ways similar to Hitler Youth at an indoctrination camp.”

As irreverent and disgusting as that is, it is not the first time we have heard that comparison.
Nine month ago and only three days after the murderous rampage Glenn Beck said the camp "sounds a little like the Hitler Youth or whatever. I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing."

Yes, who would have a political camp for kids?

Finally, in spite of the sanity ruling the media and pundits refuse to cease calling Breivik a “madman” and call him what he is: a Christian Terrorist. They are deflecting. There is no such thing as a Christian terrorist after all…

Not Christian Terrorism…

UPDATE: Breivik clearly states"Well, I am a militant Christian; to prevent the de-Christianisation of Europe is very important,"

That it doesn't require insanity, just an insane ideology to let people kill with a clear conscience doesn't surprise me anymore.

Especially when it's a religious ideology.

This shows plenty of reasons why this sort of thinking should be opposed.
