Reader comment on item: The Left Distorts Breivik's Mental World

Submitted by john (South Korea), Aug 22, 2012 at 12:33

It is a shame that the left leaning press continues to push the far right agenda of Breivik and neglects to portray him as what he is, a single lone mad person who does not represent anyone on the right. The left seems eager to prove that there are dangers from the radical right as there are from radical Islam. This is used as an excuse continuously where the name of Timothy McCVeigh will be brought up as a parallel against the thousandsof terror attacks that are carried out in the name of Islam. One McVeigh or Breivik (or name the others, Rudolph etc) does not equate to tens of thousands of terrorists who claim that Islam is their motivation.
