It is almost inconceivable that one passing reference in a 1,516-page screed would be sufficient for the Islamic/leftist machine to assign blame to yours truly, and to those of us who are working diligently to educate the people. It's extraordinary that this is being swallowed whole by the mainstream media. It's extraordinary that we experience thwarted plots, acts of jihad on a weekly and sometimes daily basis, without the mainstream media ever referring to the very ideology that inspires, commands, and prescribes such violence. But the left wing alternative media is madly running with this.
We're still waiting for the Department of Defense to speak to the religious motivation in the Fort Hood jihad. And yet here we are with a mass murderer who has been planning this for nine years, long before I ever heard of a blog, and who sought to use us, to use our work as a basis for his maniacal, homicidal rampage -- and we are held responsible. Notice that no attention is being paid to last week's jihad attack in Mumbai. Is it because it's Islam, and the media is Sharia-compliant? Is it because it's brown people? Are we going to go there? That's what the left would say if conservatives were not paying sufficient attention to murders in a non-Western country.
There is only a single and insignificant reference to me in Breivik's manifesto. The 55 references to Spencer are mostly quotes from Muslim scriptures. But Breivik cites LGF numerous times, in a very different way. He includes a long diatribe against Charles Johnson, whom he clearly admired until he felt betrayed enough to snap. The killer speaks about Charles Johnson obsessively and wrings his hands about Johnson's turn to the left. Could this perhaps have been the provocation? Could this have been what caused him to snap?
Breivik also refers favorably to Obama. Does that make the president culpable as well?
This whole exercise is ridiculous. Anders Behring Breivik is responsible for his actions. If anyone incited him to violence, it was Islamic supremacists. If anything incited him to violence, it was the Euro-Med policy.
Spencer wrote, "This disgusting neo-Nazi, excluded from SIOE because of his Nazi ties, epitomizes the disrespect for life and the contempt for humane values that terrorism embodies, and that we have dedicated our lives to resisting. Whether the challenge to human rights and to the dignity of the human person comes from neo-Nazis or Islamic supremacists, we are determined to continue to resist it, and to do everything in our power to defend the principles of freedom upon which the best of human civilization has always been based."
