That's right. Immediately after the attacks, right wing BIGOTS in the wingnut media began smearing Muslims with the broad brush of terrorism. Now we learn that the suspect in the horrible killings (so far) of 92 people "left behind a detailed manifesto outlining his preparations and calling for a Christian war to defend Europe against the threat of Muslim domination, according to Norwegian and American officials familiar with the investigation." First, Laura Ingraham at Fox "News" states that the Norway terror attacks “appears to be the work, once again, of Muslim extremists.” Then she jumps straight from the Norway terrorist attacks to the Islamic mosque in New York City, that is in no way connected to terrorism much less with this latest attack committed by right wing Christian fundamentalist(s). This is typical of Fox anti-Muslim bigotry — a Fox non sequitur to conveniently smear the religion and culture of Islam.

Oh yeah, and our buddy Jim Treacher at the Daily Caller, who runs an ongoing smear campaign against Muslims broadly titled "Not All Muslims Are Terrorists" ... etc. had to swallow his bigotry unapologetically. You can be cute about it, Treach, but you still come out smelling like a bigot and a racist. There are 2.1 billion Christians and 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. What percentage of these would you say are terrorists, hmm?
