Mischling, or ethnically mixed, was a term of art in Nazi Germany, enshrined in the 1935 Nuremberg Laws, which defined the legal definition of Aryan and classified those of mixed German-Jewish heritage as mischlings.
Well, now it seems that Pam Geller, the American zionist blogger who whipped up a hate-storm over what she dubbed “the Ground Zero Mosque,” has demonized Norwegian mischlings, in this case young Norsk people with some trace of Arabic ancestry.
Lee Fang, who blogs at Think Progress, has the goods:
Popular hate blogger Pam Geller has received scrutiny in recent days as the public became aware that the right-wing terrorist in Norway, Anders Behring Breivik, had praised her blog and thoroughly cited her writing in his political manifesto. After a number of blogs made the connection, as well as the New York Times, the Atlantic, and other major outlets, Geller became incensed and began lashing outat her critics.
In a post defending herself yesterday, Geller — who has called Obama “President Jihad” and claimed that Arab language classes are a plot to subvert the United States — reached a new low. Geller justifies Breivik’s attack on the Norwegian Labour Party summer youth camp because she says the camp is part of an anti-Israel “indoctrination training center.” She says the victims would have grown up to become “future leaders of the party responsible for flooding Norway with Muslims who refuse to assimilate, who commit major violence against Norwegian natives including violent gang rapes, with impunity, and who live on the dole.”
To get her point across, Geller posts a picture of the youth camp children Breivik targeted. The picture was taken on the Utøya island camp about 24 hours before Breivik killed over 30 children, so it is likely Geller is mocking many of the victims. Under the picture, Geller writes: “Note the faces which are more MIddle [sic] Eastern or mixed than pure Norwegian.”
Fang’s updated post notes that Geller subsequently pulled the offensive and very self-revealing caption, but he links to a screenshot of the original here.
