Last Friday, I published a translation of a Swedish report about a letter mass murderer Anders Breivik had sent to the media, in which he revealed that he was a Nazi, and that he had published his “counter-jihad manifesto” intending to destroy the counter-jihad movement.
Now Daniel Greenfield has picked up the story at FrontPage, but he is the only one: the English-language media has completely ignored this story, not even bothering to publish stories designed to shore up their earlier demonization of the counter-jihad movement, and claiming that Breivik is cravenly trying to obscure his counter-jihadist tracks, or simply delusional and crazy, as Greenfield does below. Instead, no one mentioned it at all. Nothing. The Wall Street Journal published a piece about his claims that he was tortured, but that was as close as any mainstream media outlet came to covering this story at all.
Contrast that to the huge media barrage when Breivik’s “manifesto” was first discovered: I was on NBC for the first time in ten years, I was on the front page of the New York Times, I was on the BBC, and in a hundred other places — everywhere being blamed for the murders. But now, when Breivik says he was a Nazi and was not only not influenced by the counter-jihad movement, but was trying to destroy it? Absolute silence.
“Breivik Tried to Undermine CounterJihad, Admits Nazi Goals,” by Daniel Greenfield for FrontPage, January 14:
This won’t prevent the umpteenth New York Times article counting how many times Breivik’s manifesto had Robert Spencer’s name in it, never mind that most of those instances came from a pasted document filled with quotes on terrorism from mainstream experts and elected officials, but it does fit in with his actual plan of action which involved mass murder and allying with Islamic terrorists to take over parts of Europe.
Despite Muslim complaints, Breivik’s attack had nothing to do with Islam.
Reading through the original parts of Breivik’s manifesto and then catching the rest of his performance, it’s obvious that his connection to reality is very loosely tethered. It would not surprise me a great deal if a year from now he announced that he was a Communist or converted to Islam.
Anders Behring Breivik has sent out a letter to the international media that Expo Today has reviewed. He describes the letter as a sort of first step in a “peace negotiation” with his political opponents. In the letter, Anders Behring Breivik to some extent changes the rhetoric from that which he used in his so-called manifesto. He says that he used “counter-jihadist” rhetoric in the manifesto to protect “ethno-nationalists” and instead provoke a media campaign against the anti-nationalist counter-jihad supporters. He calls this a strategy of “dual psychology.”
The technical term is delusional. I’m not just using that as an insult.
Breivik always had delusions of potency and power. He retains them now even in jail. He imagines that there is a movement behind them and that he is capable of negotiating terms. He revises the past so that every development fits into his master plan.
Anders Behring Breivik claims that he seeks a “pure Nordic ideal.” He argues that the “Nordic race” is being eradicated, and wants to form a Nazi party in Norway like the Swedes’ Party. He mentions several notorious right-wing extremists in Norway whom he wants to lead the party, including Varg Vikernes and Erik Blucher.
I suspect that Breivik’s fascist pals will turn out to have never heard of him or only know him from blog or forum comments.
Breivik writes in addition that his love of Israel consists only in its future function as a place to deport “disloyal Jews.”
That’s nice, considering that there are barely 1,000 Jews in Norway and they are self-deporting due to Islamic migration.
Anders Behring Breivik also writes that he does not think he will survive in prison, where he claims he has been tortured.
Samples of some of these tortures include”¦
In November, the killer sent a 27-page letter to prison authorities with a list of complaints ranging from everyday annoyances, like cold coffee and a lack of butter, to more serious issues, such as censorship of his correspondence, body searches and being kept in isolation….
