It happens every day. In fact, it is pretty hard to avoid it. There are some things that can only be understood with a slap on the forehead. Things so mind-boggling that one wonders how humans managed to evolve thumbs while being this mentally inept. Case in point:
Feminists hijack the tragedies in Oslo and Utoya to claim they were really attacks on women
No, I am not making that up. Feminists actually are claiming that Anders Behring Breivik killed 76 people not because of his anti-Muslim positions, which he claimed was his motivation, but because of 23 pages of Breivik’s 1500 page (that is not a typo) manifesto criticized radical feminism.
No, I am not making that up. Feminists actually are ignoring 98.5% of Breivik’s manifesto that railed against Muslims and multiculturalism in order to claim that he specifically targeted the Youth Camp because it was associated with the Labor Party, a party that supports feminist policies.
No, I am not making that up. Feminists actually are claiming that Breivik specifically targeted beautiful women.
And I am not making up that feminists are trying to connect men’s rights activists to Breivik’s actions. Some tried with thinly-veiled diatribes while others mirrored Breivik’s inane ramblings in an effort to trash men’s groups.
Nevermind that many news reports show that Breivik was motivated by anti-Islamic and anti-immigration sentiments. Nevermind that at his hearing Breivik tried to, and was prevented from, using the hearing as soapbox to air more of his anti-Muslim views. Nevermind that he also claimed there are two more cells in his organization. Nevermind that Europe has a history of anti-Islamic sentiments.
It takes a particularly disgusting person to use this kind of tragic act of terrorism to attack a rival political group. It was inhuman and perverse when the conservatives did it with 9/11, depraved when liberals did it with Abu Ghraib, and just plain evil for feminists to do it with this tragedy.
Actual people died.
Just because some asshat thinks Muslims are taking over his country.
Some of the people he murdered may have been Muslims. Many of them were boys and men. To hijack this tragedy, claim that it was about killing women and feminists, and turn it into some misandrist screed against men’s groups is outrageous. Those murdered people and their families deserve better than this.
