Note from the Baron:
A full-court press by the Norwegian media is currently underway to assign Fjordman at least partial responsibility for the Oslo massacre. This process is not limited to Norway: it is going on simultaneously in other countries, including Sweden and the Netherlands.
Please publicize what is described here in as many languages as possible. This must become common knowledge far beyond the borders of Norway.
Anders Behring Breivik’s defense lawyer, Geir Lippestad, is a member of the Labour Party in Norway. Did you know that? I didn’t either, until Steen brought it to my attention.
Mr. Lippestad, a member of the Socialist party that was targeted by his client, is now attempting to have Fjordman dragged into court to testify in his client’s defense. The reason? Fjordman is guilty of being exactly correct in his analysis that rampant immigrant crime would lead to rising tensions in Europe.
Suppose an American national security advisor had warned in the year 2000 about an imminent Islamic terrorist attack. Would he then be called in to testify for the defense of Osama Bin Laden?
Is it hateful speech to say that a bridge could collapse in the next big storm because it wasn’t built for this kind of weather?
In a recent article in the Norwegian newspaper VG, Anders Behring Breivik’s defense lawyer says that people like Fjordman bear partial responsibility for his client’s crimes. In another article, VG interviews one of the survivors from Utøya, who agrees with the decision to drag Fjordman into the trial. The article says that people like Fjordman and Hans Rustad (of Document.no) inspired and created Anders Behring Breivik.
Note from Fjordman:
VG’s debate editor, Elisabeth Skarsbø Moen, has undermined my right to reply for weeks, probably deliberately. VG even had the nerve to ask me for an interview just after they accused me of being morally guilty of aiding and abetting mass murder. I told them to get lost, and have already decided who will get my next interview. It will not be VG or any other Norwegian journalist.
VG has launched a massive campaign against my person. And it is not even a Leftist newspaper by Scandinavian standards.
From the point of view of the mainstream media, it is very important to complete a full character assassination of me. They know that a large proportion of the general population agrees with me on many issues, and we must be silenced.
Since the glory days of Chairman Mao, an effective way to silence dissent has been to make an example of a few individuals, and crush them in front of the public so that others dare not say anything similar. That’s what we’re witnessing now.
Breivik’s lawyer Geir Lippestad is obviously trying to divert attention from his client’s crimes. I can understand that; it’s his job. But the way the mass media are buying into and applauding his tactics is absolutely shameful. It’s character assassination at its purest and very worst.
I do not intend to go silent. I will continue writing and telling the truth about Islam, the EU, Multiculturalism and mass immigration to the Western world.
The intimidation campaign will fail.
Afterword from the Baron:
Besides Fjordman (and me, obviously), the Norwegian court should subpoena the following individuals. These are just a few of the hundreds of “influences” cited in Anders Behring Breivik’s manifesto:
- Bruce Bawer
- Paul Belien
- Tony Blair
- Judge Robert Bork
- Andy Bostom
- Bill Clinton
- John Esposito
- Hugh Fitzgerald
- Pamela Geller
- Christopher Hitchens
- Charles Johnson
- Bernard Lewis
- Melanie Phillips
- Daniel Pipes
- Condoleezza Rice
- Walid Shoebat
- Robert Spencer
- Serge Trifkovic
- Keith Windschuttle
- Bat Ye’or
All of these individuals are indeed “people like” Fjordman. Let them all step forward!
Every author who ever published anything cited by Anders Behring Breivik should be called. Why, they should demand to be subpoenaed.
Even if the authors are dead, the publishers can be held accountable. Haul them into court!
We have an army of examples. Later on I will post a full list of publications and people (living and dead) who were cited by the Butcher of Utøya. All of them should be brought to justice in a Norwegian court of law.
