If a bomb goes off on The Gaza Strip or some loony tunes guns down some innocents at a school in America or some muslim fundamentalist blows the crap out of some bit of London then we are shocked.
Shocked, but not entirely surprised.
Our politicians have created this insane world and we are not entirely shocked when the insane world they have created kicks us in the arse.
Was 9/11 entirely unpredictable?...Nope...It was a shock but we'd pissed off Al Qaida who are a terrorist organisation so it wasn't entirley unpredictable was it?...A bit of a surprise perhaps...but not entirely unpredictable....
7/7 wasn't entirely unpredicatble either was it? It was certainly a shock but, if it was going to happen it was going to happen in Britain or America most likely and it did.
I was startled, as I suspect were many, to learn that this shit happened in Norway.
For a brief instant I thought 'It's because of those Mohammed cartoons' until I remembered that was Denmark.
Well...perhaps Call Me Al Qaida have a slight geographical issue when it comes to Scandinavia?
It appears it was a 'far right' lunatic.
Now...being a proud member of 'the right wing' in political terms I held my breath as the news came through.
It appears 'he' was a 'lone wolf'....although there may be two of them.....
The 'right wing' would never condone or support such crazy behaviour - if only because the 'right wing', politically speaking, are growing successfully - if slowly.
This 'nutter' has set back 'right wing politics' by several years at best.
Would Britain's British National Party condone this sort of thing? No way.
Even the farther right wing 'English Defence League' would baulk at this sort of shit.
Islamic fundamentalists who live amongst us would do this.....we wouldn't.
Suddenly...a maverick 'far right lone wolf' has done what Islam has been doing.
The stupid bastard has pushed us waaaay back after all the good work of recent years.
More importantly he's killed kids.
As a man who has little, if any faith in God...God help us all.
This mad bastard has killed maybe 80+ kids. They were simply learning about politics....it was a Labour/Socialist holiday camp....I disagree wholeheartedly with Socialists.
I hate 'multi-culturalism' and all that bollocks but I would never in a million years harm anyone who agreed with multi-culturalism. I'd tell them they were idiots and buy them a beer.
If sections of the 'far right' are now considering using the terrorist tactics of Islam then this is going to get very very dirty.
If it can happen in Norway it really can happen anywhere....
I'll continue to look at Islamists with justifiable suspicion...I'll now look at white Englishmen with a degree of suspicion......
Bombing and shooting is very very wrong. We know that, Islamists clearly don't. Now, it appears, some 'right wingers' don't either.
As a proud 'right winger send 'em home get em out of MY country England for the English' sort of chap I am shocked to the core.
My politics won't change but my view of those who agree with me have just changed beyond recognition.
Every sane persons thoughts are with you Norway.....
Every sane persons thoughts....even mine.
What a fucking world eh?...What a fucking world....
