If you haven’t heard yet then head on over to News24 and read up about the shocking terrorist attack’s that have hit Norway overnight.
The main suspect is suspected of being behind the bombings and shootings that have now killed over 90 people is Anders Behring Breivik who is apparently a right wing racist fool who dressed as a policeman and gunned down over 80 people on a Norwegian island.
All that’s sad and terrible but why are we posting about it? Well according to his Facebook page that has now been suspended he describes himself as a Christian (pfft) and says that he enjoys hunting, World of Warcraft and Call of Duty.
And it’s that last one that is going to be used as a headline by all the conservative news channels the world over as proof that gaming is bad for the youth (he is 32) and they’ll completely ignore the fact that he is apparently a right wing fascist who also listed Political and Stock analysis as his interests.
To be fair political analysis is likely to have driven him to this act, that and the fact that he is likely to be entirely insane, and his hunting passion would have given him the ability to massacre so many people.
So before any Fox news styled channel calls for the banning of Call of Duty why not rather call for the banning of hunting and gunsâ€¦ and then politicians.
Also remember this incident the next time someone tries to say that all terrorist attacks are committed by Islamic extremists.
