I have read a largish chunk of Anders Breivik's own writings and try as I might, I can see no madness there.
And yet, 98 people are dead. 91 of them young adults. How can the man not be insane? How could he have detached himself so much that he didn't see young people in his rifle sights but the future enemy? He wanted whoever he shot to stay down. We know this because early post mortems on the bodies show that he used dum-dum rounds. These rounds break up on impact and do horrendous damage to a human body. The bomb he detonated near the PM's office was massive but he was able to do that remotely. (He had to, in order to ensure that he got away from the carnage to complete phase 2 of his plan).
I cannot conceive of a mind that can switch itself off while slaughtering 91 younglings.
All we can do now, I suspect, is bury and honour the dead, and then look for reasons for for this man's actions.
It seems, from what I read here that his motivation was the growth of Muslims in European cities and the growing Islamification of our societies. In this, he has a point. I have stated repeatedly here and elsewhere that this is a numbers game: Muslims have four children to our two. It is simply a matter of time before we are outnumbered in our own nations. As always, I will openly state that I have met and worked with thousands of Muslims in the last 25 years. We get on very well together. I learnt a great deal about (ordinary) Muslims in countries like Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
But, as much as I like them, (I have dozens and dozens of friends and colleagues dotted around the Middle East and North Africa), I do not want them to come to my country and change it to suit themselves. I never did that in their countries so I expect exactly the same courtesy in return.
You want Sharia Law? Fine. Head off to a country where that is practised and accepted by all in that society. To the developed world, Sharia Law is barbaric in many aspects. We do things differently here. No, it may not be to your liking but remember: our house, our rules. If you don't like the rules, leave.
I realise that some of what I am saying today will cause alarm to some. It will definitely upset the socialists, but I can live with that. It will upset some Muslims although in my (real world) experience, it won't be many. My Arabic friends are quite content to stick to traditional methods though many also say they would prefer our system to their own. I found, in my conversations with Arabs, that if I ask a direct question from a group I get a stock answer. In Libya, for example, in January this year I asked three or four guys at a coffee shop (I knew them all), "Who here likes the Colonel?" All said, almost in unison, "Me". When asked later, individually, they all said that Gadaffi was a complete and utter lunatic, disliked, loathed even, by most Libyans.
Anders Breivik knew that if he attacked a mosque, or another great gathering of Muslims, a new front would have immediately opened, manned by the Islamic fundamentalists, and thousands of lives would be lost. His plan then, seems to have been to cull (there is no other fitting word for it) the next generation of socialist leaders at their youth camp. This, coupled with his bombing of the PM's office, was his way of saying that socialism must end. We cannot, and must not, cope with an ever increasing influx of Muslims, and a wide range of other nationalities into Britain. Immigration must be checked. If it is not, we morph into some socialists idea of a standard human. With no local or national identity. They want to remove the one thing that makes us individuals. We are supposed to be assimilated.
I will resist this until my last breath. I am not Borg, and I have no desire to be. My only rule is that I will resist without recourse to violence. It violates my oath which is to cause no harm. It violates my sense of decency-attacking young people with high powered rifles surely violates everyone's sense of decency-so I will not be seeking change that way. I have around 200 peaceful ways to ruin the socialists party without picking up a weapon more dangerous than a pen.
And yet, for thinking this way, I am an enemy of the state. For writing it down further condemns me.
I read a great piece yesterday by Tom Paine in which he says:
"After the merest pause for a respectful nod to Norway's dead, it was on with the usual smear tactics and guilt by association before demanding that something be done about people whose opinions are readily detectable by their use of social media. If you tweet, blog or post any non-conforming opinions in comments, you should be very afraid this morning.
Try the following checklist:
- You do not trust the British state
- You believe that the Labour Party and its fellow-travellers are the greatest enemies of our liberty
- You believe the BBC has a left-liberal bias
- You believe that British academia is dominated - and our education system warped - by the left
- You believe that immigrants have been allowed into Britain faster than they could reasonably be assimilated into our way of life
- You believe that the left-liberal consensus facilitated this deliberately to create client groups for its own electoral advantage
- You are tired of our capital being known as 'Londonistan'
- You believe that citizens have the right to armed self-defence
- You have called for politicians to be held personally to account (perhaps with a few lurid 'swinging from lamp-post' references)
I ticked them all.
For daring to disagree with the Fabians, I can be considered an enemy of my own country. A country that I wish to save, unlike them, who wish only for its destruction. They give it away to a foreign prelate, against my wishes, and now I have to fight. I have to resist. I have to say no.
I am proud to fight my good fight. I am honour-bound to fight. I am obliged to fight. Even if it is only with a pen or a keyboard. I am not obliged to agree with anyone about anything at anytime. Least of all these socialist creatures, who are, in my opinion, damned.
One thing is for sure, the lefties have already agreed that Breivik is a right wing fundamentalist, so that's alright. He has been weighed, he has been measured, and he has been put in a box. They know what they are dealing with. He will go away for a very long time, forever, perhaps, and that is right and just. Killing people has consequences and justice must and will be done.
The mistake the lefties make is to think that Breivik is rare. He is not. There are millions more like him. Other outrages will follow. More people will die. More bombs will go bang. More bullets will fly. More innocents will die. For exactly the same reasons as Friday's tragedy: the politicians did not listen to what the people wanted. They assumed they knew best. They do not. They always feel the need to "learn lessons" long after an event takes place but if they tried listening instead, they would learn all they need to know.
The Crusade Against Socialism will continue.
Just don't dare say you weren't warned.
