Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer just sent this update, which confirms my suspicions:
I’m including some additional information relating to the niqab promotion tour in Norway. It turns out that one of the main sponsors receives direct Government funding (what a surprise).
Here’s the translated excerpt from another article in VG.no:
The tour is sponsored by the Norwegian non-fiction Writers and Translators Association (NFF) and the organization Les! The latter receives an annual sum of NOK 2.8 million in operational support from the government through the Norwegian Council for Cultural Affairs.
That is, 2.8 million kroner (about $470,000) is being supplied by Norwegian taxpayers to support an enthusiastic supporter of the Taliban as she tours the country promoting the Islamic veil.
And the Norwegian establishment demonizes Fjordman, just because he opposes mass immigration, especially Islamic immigration.
It doesn’t get any crazier than this, not even in San Francisco.
