Behold the Face of a Right-wing Monster
A monster so cruel and evil he would use dum dum bullets on helpless children.
Dr. Colin Poole, head of surgery at Ringriket Hospital in Honefoss northwest of Oslo, told The Associated Press the gunman used special bullets designed to disintegrate inside the body and cause maximum internal damage. Poole said surgeons treating 16 gunshot victims have recovered no full bullets.
"These bullets more or less exploded inside the body," Poole said. "It's caused us all kinds of extra problems in dealing with the wounds they cause, with very strange trajectories."
And this is his deeply disturbing video...
I made some screen caps of that video in case it's taken down for whatever reason.

So you can at least get an idea of the hideous ideology behind his murderous act.
But here's the thing eh?
I also made a screen cap this morning of a comment left on the blog of a member of the Blogging Tories.
To his credit, the blog owner sharply criticized that comment. But he spends much of his time mumbling darkly about the Mooslim Threat. It does show you what kind of hate is out there.
And I know that if I visited other conservative sites, like the sewer called Free Dominion, I would find more and much worse.
Now I hate violent Muslim extremists exactly as much as I hate any other kind of violent religious fanatics, bullies, bigots, and thugs.
But the fact is in certain right-wing circles, bashing peaceful, decent, Muslim Canadians, and their religion, has become far too common. It's wrong, it's evil, it's nonsense. It can only create the conditions for some act of murderous violence.
And however flawed this country may be, or whatever our democratic differences, it's still a peaceful place to live.
And this horror must never happen here.
I can only hope that our Con government, and our security services are monitoring potentially violent right-wing terrorists as closely as they are monitoring any others.
And that the Cons aren't blinded by their own foul ideology, or the ghastly grunts of their rabid Christianist base.
Because the beast that would tear our beautiful country apart is surely among us.
And it must be tamed or caged, before it destroys us ALL....
