While I appreciate her work on behalf of the victims of honor-killings, Pamela Gellar has been known to subscribe to conspiracy theories (for instance, she believed that Obama withheld his birth certificate because he allegedly had a politically embarrasing Indonesian name at the time, as part of the narrative that he was raised as a Muslim during early childhood); I would take this information with a grain of salt.
I would like to commend the response of Europol to this tragedy thus far; while they are now dedicating more resources to right-wing extremism (as they should), they are not overreacting and exaggerating the current threat in relation to Islamist and (to a lesser extent) left-wing extremism.
Something in this reported account seems to be missing. Perhaps the guy went batshit crazy but it seems there is more to this puzzle. I can see him not liking left wing kids but its hard to imagine that they were at the top of his" to kill" list.
For those who think that if the max sentence for these types of crimes were higher (or even death penalty) it would have stopped this type of crime than they are naive.
There does seem to be some hypocrisy however when U.S. and NATO drops bombs on targets which are likely to have high child death collateral damage there is relatively minimal outcry.
I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.
