OSLO — The Norwegian police on Saturday charged a 32-year-old man, whom they identified as a Christian fundamentalist with right-wing connections, over the bombing of a government center here and a shooting attack on a nearby island that together left at least 91 people dead.Unlike when it's an Islamist attack -- then you have to wade several paragraphs in to get even a hint of the perp's alleged ideological leanings.
Christian? Right-wing? It's a banner day for the NYT. It's their lead-off sentence.
Also, have you noticed how quick the media have been to give us the tall, blond, nordic details of the perp's appearance? You would never get this if the identifiers were swarthy, dark-eyed, middle-eastern-looking. In fact, such reportage would be denounced as racist.
Just wait now for the NYT and other outlets to assure us that Christianity is a religion of peace.
