"By the way, the group that is taking credit for this - guess what, it’s not - sorry to disappoint you people out there who hate Christianity, it’s not Christian group, it’s not a secular group, it’s not a left-wing group, it’s not a right-wing group, it's Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami." ~~ Michael Medved, July 22, 2011; 1st hour.
Michael Medved (KTTH m-f, 12-3p) and Dave Boze (KTTH m-f, 3-4p) lectured listeners Friday about Moslems who would slaughter your children because they had just got done slaughtering Norweigan children. (Listen to Medved podcast (for free!) here).

Before Norweigan authorities had carefully avoided any conclusions about the perpetrators, Medved jumped to his favorite conclusion, saying the attacks in Oslo were assuredly from jihadists. Boze later agreed, saying Norweigans (with whom he's quite familiar- coming, as he does, from Stanwood WA) are naïve, and politically correct.
Turns out the perpetrator of the more than 80 deaths in Oslo self-describes as a fundamentalist Christian, a conservative and could pass for a tight-end on the Hitlerjugend soccer team. The NY Times:
After the shooting the police seized a 32-year-old Norwegian man on the island, according to the police and Justice Minister Knut Storberget. He was later identified as Anders Behring Breivik and characterized by officials as a right-wing extremist, citing previous writings including on his Facebook page.
Mr. Breivik had registered a farm-related business in Rena, in eastern Norway, which the authorities said allowed him to order a large quantity of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, an ingredient that can be used to make explosives. Authorities were investigating whether the chemical may have been used in the bombing.
A Facebook page matching his name and the photo given out by the police was set up just a few days ago. It listed his religion as Christian, politics as conservative. It said he enjoys hunting, the video games World of Warcraft and Modern Warfare 2, and books including Machiavelli’s “The Prince” and George Orwell’s “1984.”
(This profile, Christian, conservtive, Orwell, Machiavelli fans could be same of many folks we know who listen to Michael Medved, Dave Boze and Glenn Beck fuming at Obama in their recliners whilst busting tops off Ben & Jerry's and sending donations to Focus on The Family).
Hope Medved and Boze will get their facts straight before they shoot their mouths off next time: somebody could get hurt.
