ABB, terrorist extraordinaire?

After having followed the first couple of weeks of the trial of terrorist and mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik through the eyes of the Norwegian media the impression I’m left with is that Breivik is the epitome of evil and that his murderous actions in July last year are almost unparalleled in modern history when it comes to sheer horror and calculated evil. Some people in Norway even seem to think that Breivik’s malice is on par with that of Hitler and Stalin. In their defence it can be said that very few people will dispute that Breivik is an evil psychopath, but there are simply no grounds for claiming that Breivik is any more evil or any more horrible than any other individual who decide to actively hunt down and kill innocent people, either by blowing them up or by killing them in a hail of bullets. What the vast majority in Norway fail to grasp is that Anders Behring Breivik is a very normal and very archetypical terrorist, nothing more and nothing less. The only thing that distinguishes Breivik from other terrorist is:

The fact that he managed to kill so many people

The fact that he didn’t sacrifice his own life during the mission

The fact that he wasn’t killed during the shooting spree

The fact that he wasn’t killed on capture

The fact that he is now able to explain and justify his actions in great detail in a trial that is being followed closely all over the world

Breivik’s lack of remorse and the fact that he is able to describe his actions in a surprisingly lucid and chilling manner doesn’t make his actions any more horrible or evil. The brutal killing of innocent civilians is horrifying regardless whether it is premeditated or not. If Mohammad Atta or any of the other 9/11 hijackers by some miraculously circumstance had been captured alive they would have exhibited a similar fanaticism and a similar disregard for human life. Their hatred would’ve burned just as brightly as Breivik’s. The same could also be said for the London bombers and every other jihadist who think nothing of killing innocent people as a means to achieve a ‘holy’ goal.

This terrorist attack has also given the rest of the world a bird’s eye view of the official Norwegian consensus society in all its glory. And it is highly likely that people who have caught a glimpse of it are scratching their heads and wondering what the heck they have just seen, or rather what they haven’t seen. Legitimate questions have been raised about Breivik’s mental health since the attacks, whether he suffers from some form of psychosis or other psychiatric illness, but no one have so far found it necessary to questioned the mental health of all those thousands of individuals who seem incapable of exhibiting any outrage at all. It’s not unreasonable to suspect that a psychiatrist would express concern if the first reaction of the next of kin of a murder victim was to stress the importance of showing the rest of the world how much love they were capable of exhibiting or started to sing in public to prove to the murderer that he/she hadn’t managed to extinguish the flame inside their heart.

There’s no escaping it, this bizarre reaction does raise some rather eerie questions, such as are these individual suffering from some form of a psychosis or have they simply just been so thoroughly indoctrinated by the Norwegian consensus apparatus that they are incapable of displaying anything else than the preordained and sanctioned emotions authorized by the authorities? There is undeniably something very North Korea like over these public displays of ‘unity’ and ‘solidarity’ which are mainly staged for the benefit of the international media. The mantra from the official Norway has always been that ‘we are going to show the rest of the world ....”

Those in Norway who don’t feel the need to take part in these rather uncomfortable manifestations of uncanny awkwardness and who oppose the underlying message behind, which is pro-multiculturalism and pro-Islam have been told over and over again that they are desperately clinging onto the past and holding onto ideas that simply don’t exist anymore. But what they themselves fail to realize is that their displays are also a desperate attempt to cling onto ideals and norms that are no longer found in Norway. The organizers are desperately trying to convince themselves and the rest of the world that Norway is still the same society that it was in the 1960’s and 70’s when people could walk around freely without having to fear being robbed, being physically assaulted and when women could walk around freely without having to fear being dragged into dark alleyways and being raped by third world immigrants which unfortunately happens quite frequently in Norway today.   

There is something very desperate and distressing about these staged manifestations. They are creepy because they are  fake and dishonest and they paint a false picture of Norway and ordinary Norwegians. Their fantasy simply doesn’t correspond with reality. Norway is a much less safe society than the one that they are trying to project onto the world. There is something very disingenuous about it all. Why not just drop the facade and admit that Norway is no longer the innocent little naive country that it once was? Anders Behring Breivik didn’t just appear out of nowhere, nor was he the one that catapulted Norway into the new ‘dangerous’ real world. We were already there a long before he detonated his lethal bomb in Oslo and executed his vicious killing spree on Utoya, and no silly sing-along or drivel about turning the other cheek and showing the world how much love we carry inside us is going to change that fact. Norway was attacked by a terrorist and that’s it, nothing more, nothing less. Norwegians should accept it and learn to deal with it.
