What has Geert Wilders, had to say about, Anders Behring Breivik.

So far not a lot as far as I can tell.

On 6-7-11 Geert Wilders was very keen to demand that the Dutch government distance itself from the demands of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) that he Geert Wilders should be stopped from promoting Hatred. The dutch government decided, freedom of speech took precedence. Which is probably right, but hard to accept right now.

However I think right now I would be keen to know how much Wilders is distancing himself from Anders Behring Breivik. In truth I think I would like to know how the various anti-islamists are going to demonstrate to us, a distinction between Breivik’s ideas and their own.

Prehaps they will tell us that they have nothing to do with this emerging Christian Crusaderist Ideology, that their ideas are non-violent that they condemn violence.

Yet I wonder if then they will be able to explain how they expect us to believe that normal everyday Muslims who for all intent and purposes seem to equally non violent and interested in living ordinary lives, are just the same as the Jihadists.

Are they going to argue that there is one rule for Muslims but another for Anti-Islamists, all Muslims are potential Jihadists, but all Christians are not potential Crusaders perhaps.

This is at least one aspect of the Flawed Logic Breivik used, the application of different standards and rigour of logic to different ideas and populations. And it wasn’t his idea, it is not even Wilders, it’s a very old idea, It is simply group think, linked to the actor observer effect. I-We do something because of the situation we are in. You-they do something because of who they are. A known and well explored bias in the way humans see things.

Sometimes this is called the attribution error. In the end the truth is we all do things for both reasons, and singling out individuals or groups from either point of view as good or bad, already has a description, it’s called prejudice, and prejudice always leads to the same place, violence.

If the Muslim Brotherhood are as bad as the Violent Jihadists, then by the same logic, Wilders and his followers are as bad as Anders Behring Breivik.


About Transremaxculver

An entirely fictitious username I created for posting on 'alt.religion.scientology', Scientology is something of which I am highly critical. For those of you who don't know, the Church of Scientology have a habit of making life very uncomfortable for even the most legitimate of critics, which is why this username is completely anonymous. Anyway I have become quite fond of this username, and although it has to some extent outgrown it's original purpose, I think a blog is perhaps the right place for me/it to continue to grow and develop.
