So yesterday someone else decided it would be a brilliant idea to express his warped opinions through violence. 98 people, many of which were
children, had to die because of some extremist.
And the news went ballistic. It didn't take long for wild speculations to take off, and CNN took only a few hours to decide this was a revenge attack
by Muslim terrorists because of Bin Laden's death.
Well...they were wrong. A self-proclaimed white Christian fundamentalist right-wing nationalist was the extremist this time.
And the emphasis is on EXTREMIST. It doesn't matter which side they're on, Christian or Muslim, they all act the same way. What people need to
realize is, they are a MINORITY. Ever since 9/11 people started, politics and people in general started gearing their lives towards those minorities.
One one side we have the Muslim fundamentalists:
They believe every non-Muslim is worth less, or even nothing. They believe infidel's customs are filthy, and that they commit constant sin because
they obviously all take drugs and have premarital sex all the time. They also believe that those infidels want to destroy their religion and invade
their lands. And their solution? Suppression of freedoms (no right to voice your opinion) and violence (9/11)!
On the other side, I present you the Christian fundamentalist:
They believe every non-Christian (or Christian of another denomination) is worth less, or even nothing. They believe everyone else to be sinners. They
also believe that those non-believers (and ALL Muslims of course) are trying to destroy their religion, and invade their lands (omgomgomg Sharia law
is coming!!!). And their solution? Suppression of freedom (CCTV, warrantless wiretabs) and violence (Iraq/Afghanistan, Oslo).
Notice the similarities?
They are both acting and thinking in exactly the same way!! And they are both minorities. The majority of Christians wouldn't want to kill innocent
children to point out how much they dislike the immigration of people that don't share their religion. And the majority of Muslims doesn't believe
every infidel should die. It's called COMMON SENSE!
On both sides, people in respective countries started letting those VILLAGE IDIOTS decide how they live. This has to stop!
In the US, you have people seriously claiming "Sharia law" is on the rise. That's in a country with a Muslim population that represents 2.2% (!!!!)
of the population. And before someone says "look at the UK, they got Sharia law", they represent 3% of the population, and none of their Sharia laws
can override common law.
On the other hand, the Muslim extremists spread lies about the West too, plenty of them. And just with Christian fundamentalists, logic isn't their
strong suit when it comes to justifying their actions and opinions. I mean, seriously, the whole "you'll get virgins if you blow yourself up" thing
is beyond laughable.
Both sides also try to convince the general population that the opposing extremists represent the other population at large. Glenn beck claimed 10% of
Muslims are terrorists...that's 150 million people. To put this into perspective, Russia has less than 150 million inhabitants!! His entire claim is
so laughable, it should be completely obvious, but some still buy into it. And Muslim terrorists kill innocents because they don't believe those
innocents are really innocent, therefore also claiming the entire opposing population is a target.
It is time we recognize that those VILLAGE IDIOTS are the root of our problems, on both sides. The "normal people" shouldn't have to cut their
freedoms and spread violence based on the actions of a bat# crazy minority group. People like Bin Laden, or that silly pastor Terry Jones should be
simply ignored. When Muslims hear someone like Bin Laden, they should just think to themselves "what a crazy old fool" and walk away. People in the
west should do the same when they hear people like that crazy old pastor. They're mentally ill, and last I checked, people shouldn't take advice
from the mentally ill...especially if they represent a minority.
In light of that, I hope Norway doesn't change its ways, and remains the freedom loving nation it is. I would be sad seeing them change into a big
brother 1984-like country based on the actions of a lunatic.
