Reader comment on item: Anders Behring Breivik, the Left, and Me

What exactly have Leftists actually done to improve the lot of humanity? Even conservatives want clean air and clean water, they just don't want to destroy the humans. Why indeed are leftists now bonding world-wide, not just in my grandparent's native little Norway, with the most virulent right-wing Islamist's of the world? Strange! I don't think most of the press can figure this one out. Never do Robert Spencer, Bat Ye'or, Daniel Pipes, Pamela Geller, MEMRI or others who believe in freedom and personal responsibility advocate violence. Anders and Jose are disturbed young men. Others are not to be blamed for their terrorism. The far left and the Islamic radical right are very much alike in that they advocate blame, discord, and violence to achieve their respective agendas. Anders certainly fits a more left-wing profile in that he chose violence against the innocent to punish the Norwegian government's acceptance of Islamic militancy! "Think Progress" seems to be moving backward, but then isn't " progressive-ism" an Oxymoron?
