Christian Terrorist Anders Breivik

The Sunday NYT describes the terrorist believed responsible for the Friday massacre in Oslo,
As stunned Norwegians grappled with the deadliest attack in the country since World War II, a portrait began to emerge of the suspect, Anders Behring Breivik, 32. The police identified him as a right-wing fundamentalist Christian, while acquaintances described him as a gun-loving Norwegian obsessed with what he saw as the threats of multiculturalism and Muslim immigration.

“We are not sure whether he was alone or had help,” a police official, Roger Andresen, said at a televised news conference. “What we know is that he is right wing and a Christian fundamentalist.”

In the 1,500-page manifesto, posted on the Web hours before the attacks, Mr. Breivik recorded a day-by-day diary of months of planning for the attacks, and claimed to be part of a small group that intended to “seize political and military control of Western European countries and implement a cultural conservative political agenda.”

The manifesto, entitled “2083: A European Declaration of Independence,” equates liberalism and multiculturalism with “cultural Marxism,” which the document says is destroying European Christian civilization.
It all sounds very familiar, doesn't it?

Recall the GOP outrage when the FBI and Department of Homeland Security released a report warning of the dangers or right-wing extremism?

Can we all assume the GOP will be lining up on Monday to apologize to the FBI and DHS?

Will Fox News accurately describe Anders Breivik as a Christian terrorist?

In the video below, pay particular attention to Joe Scarborough's laughing out loud and calling Janet Napolitano "nuts". Tweet @JoeNBC and ask Scarborough when he plans to apologize to Janet Napolitano and more importantly, the hard working analysts who actually wrote the report.
