“Young radical obsessed with violence”

If this guy’s name were Tarek Mehanna, and his hero were a jihadist rather than a Norwegian “nationalist”, we’d likely be hearing about his arrest by federal agents in our local news.

If his name were Victoria Kennedy, the Catholic bishop of Worcester would be asking why a St. John’s graduate and current Assumption College student is engaging in such thoroughly un-Catholic behavior.

And — for the record — he’s from Shrewsbury.

    Dude’s obviously nuts. If Anna Maria wanted to give him an honorary degree, I would hope that the bishop would intervene. No supporters of mass murder should be honored in such a manner.

      I’ve listened to the interview, and I am not convinced he’s crazy.

      It’s too easy to say that anyone who espouses a radically racist viewpoint is crazy. From my interactions with those on that side of the fence, I certainly cannot say that all hardcore racists are crazy.

      • Anthony Zamarro says:

        He’s at least incoherent: “I don’t believe that it should occur again, but I do believe that it was atrocious but necessary in that it has raised awareness for it and Breivik did that with the executions.” Maybe this is translated from the Norweigian, but it makes absolutely no sense.

        Also, considering the environment that this kid comes from, it’s hard to imagine what could have “radicalized” him other than trauma. Anna Maria is hardly a hotbed of anti-Islamic radicalism. I still think the smart money is on crazy.
