In previous articles we’ve highlighted the hideous things Pamela Geller said about the victims of the Oslo terrorist attack, calling them anti-Semites, socialists, Communists, Nazis, pro-Islamists, jihad-enablers, and rape-enablers. They had it coming.
But lest you think that Pamela Geller is the only one from the right-wing that has issued such insensitive and atrocious comments, let it be known that she is certainly not alone. Glenn Beck, for instance, referred to the victims as Nazis, claiming that they are the equivalent of the Hitler Youth. Another well-known personality and conservative blogger is also trying to grab the spotlight with her outrageous comments: Debbie Schlussel.
Remember how Pamela Geller included a racist caption saying that the victims were mostly “Middle Eastern” or “mixed” and not “pure Norwegian?” Seems like Schlussel wanted to top that, and so she had a similar picture but with a caption provocatively asking:
“Victims” or Perpetrators?
By the very fact that she asked the question–and that she placed the word “victims” in quotations and “perpetrators” without quotations–we can safely say that she is saying that the victims of the Oslo terrorist attack were actually perpetrators of terrorism–they were terrorists. At minimum, “they sided with Islamic terrorists.” Schlussel goes on to say (emphasis is mine):
Again, you must read Zalmi’s important piece on this, which provides far more detail on these “victims” of terrorism who celebrated terrorism against other victims.
Please savor the morbid nature of that statement: imagine, just for a minute, if some Muslim blogger wrote that the victims of 9/11 were in fact terrorists not victims. Can you imagine the outrage?
Schlussel also says that their deaths was just a result of “karma,” i.e. it was the universe giving them what they justly deserved. Opines Schlussel:
And I don’t get too upset when they face the karma that is their fate.
She goes on:
Karma is a bitch . . . especially for Jew-haters who were Fatah’s bitch. You hang out with snakes, you get bitten.
Oh, dozens upon dozens of children were shot and killed? Well, karma is a real bitch, suck it up. That’s the way the cookie crumbles, tough luck, bitches.
Schlussel agrees with Glenn Beck’s statement that the victims were equivalent to the Hitler Youth, saying:
More proof that Glenn Beck was spot on when he compared Norway’s Utoya Island political camp, shot up by Anders Breivik, to a Hitler Youth camp.
Aside from labeling them Nazis, Schlussel mocks the victims, calling them “spoiled airheaded kids” and “hateful, privileged brats.”
The delusional Schlussel calls the Oslo victims “would-be assassins,” saying:
I can’t feel sorry for those who support my would-be assassins.
What the smurf is she talking about? Basically, Schlussel has equated the Oslo victims with Hamas. Her proof for this amazing juxtaposition? Apparently, some of those on the island supported boycotting Israel for its apartheid policies towards Arabs. This “divest from Israel” campaign utilizes the methods used to pressure apartheid South Africa, and is in fact supported by none other than Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Are Mandela and Tutu also a part of Hamas then? Are they anti-Semites and Jew-haters?
Schlussel also takes issue with supporting the Freedom Flotilla, shrieking that the children were playing a game
re-enacting of the HAMAS flotilla in which terrorists tried to murder Israeli soldiers
The Freedom Flotilla attempted to give humanitarian aid to the starving people of Gaza, who have been the victims of an inhumane and illegal blockade by Israel. It has nothing to do with Hamas.
Another image that Debbie Schlussel takes offense to shows a tee-shirt that says “tear down this wall,” which refers to the illegal Wall of Separation–more properly called the Apartheid Wall. Well, that’s the same decision that the United Nations and the International Court of Justice came to, namely that Israel must tear down the wall.
We could debate Israel and Palestine all day long, but regardless of that, is this really the time to be worrying about the Oslo victims’ political viewpoints? Perhaps we can just mourn their deaths as decent human beings are supposed to? No, not Debbie Schlussel. She calls the children “HAMASniks,” saying:
And I shed no tears for these HAMASnik campers with a Scandinavian dialect. Perpetrators are not victims. Sorry. HAMAS collaborators don’t get my pity. They never will.
Debbie Schlussel summarizes her cold-hearted and depraved position by saying:
For me, this is like Alien v. Predator. I’m not sad for either side. And I make no apologies for it. Now these kids’ families know what it feels like to be victims of the Islamic terrorists whose Judenrein boycotts and terrorist flotillas against Israel they support. We don’t live in a vacuum. I can’t feel sorry for those who support my would-be assassins. And I don’t get too upset when they face the karma that is their fate.
Sad for either side? What is the other side? There are the more than seventy victims–the majority of which were children–who were killed in this terrorist attack. And then on the other side is Anders Behring Breivik, the terrorist. Who in their right mind is feeling sad for Breivik that this even needs to be said? Is Schlussel equating Breivik to his victims? How absolutely sickening.
Debbie Schlussel calls the children “Fatah’s bitch.” I don’t know about that, but I do have some thoughts about who is a complete ….
