Fjordman: The Crackdown on the European Counterjihad


Fjordman’s latest essay has been published at FrontPage Mag. Some excerpts are below:

One of the experts on contemporary Islamophobia subpoenaed in the trial against Anders Behring Breivik is the Norwegian writer Øyvind Strømmen. Prior to this case he was virtually unknown, but he has enjoyed a tremendous career boost thanks to Breivik’s evil acts, and is now hailed as a “leading expert” on the Counterjihad, a claim which triggers roars of laughter from those who actually know this movement. A lucky opportunist, Strømmen sells his books by labeling me a dangerous “Fascist.” He says very little about real problems caused by mass immigration to Western countries, but a great deal about how evil any opposition to mass immigration is.

Strømmen also had an article published in the prestigious American magazine Foreign Affairs, a journal published by an influential foreign-policy think tank, the Council on Foreign Relations. The CFR usually supports the line that Islam is not a problem in itself, only certain “militant Islamists.” Writing there about what he termed “violent Counter-Jihadism,” which he linked to Breivik’s mass murder, Strømmen concluded that “It is crucial that law-enforcement authorities and intelligence agencies better understand the true relationship between the words and ideas of Internet-based counter-jihadists and the real-world violence they seem to have inspired.”

The official line promoted in the mainstream media, for instance by Mina Hauge Nærland in the newspaper Aftenposten, is that I am an “extremist” whereas Strømmen is an expert on extremists. It is unclear how he earned this title just by reading a few blogs, however. I’ve seen former US President George W. Bush multiple times on TV. Does that make me an expert on Bush, to be consulted by the press and the police?


As usual, during this conference including the police authorities and the government, Strømmen highlighted me personally as representing one of the greatest threats Europe has faced since the Nazis. He did exactly the same thing at the Labor Party’s own conference about extremism in early 2012. Strømmen has also lectured members of the important government-appointed 22 July Commission, established to look into the causes of Breivik’s mass murder on 22 July 2011, about the supposedly large potential for violence among anti-Islamists.

Minister of Justice Grete Faremo has repeatedly emphasized the need to counteract so-called extremism on the Internet and wants the police to concentrate more resources on surveillance of this dangerous movement. Her policy closely mirrors the views of Øyvind Strømmen, who has earlier called for having more online police patrols on controversial websites and blogs. Kristin Halvorsen of the Socialist Left Party, a Minister in PM Jens Stoltenberg’s left-wing coalition government, has launched an Internet campaign against racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia.

Strømmen has previously voiced the view that Breivik’s mass murder was the logical conclusion of the postings on independent websites such as Gates of Vienna, Tundra Tabloids or Vlad Tepes blog. Western authorities unfortunately seem to agree with this viewpoint.

We can expect further clampdowns on those who voice any opposition to Islamization or Multiculturalism from the very same people who love the Muslim Brotherhood.

The mental spazzing and scapegoating by Strommen and left-wingers here is quite spectacular.

Fjordman is a clear and imminent danger, but only to the multicultural pro-aggressive worldview. Now that Mr. Strommen's mind is bleeding from hearing some of Fjordman's inarguable points, he responds by becoming pro-aggressive and threatening.

Psychologically, Strommen subconsciously notices the potential power in Fjordman's "prophecy". Otherwise he wouldn't be verbally spazzing and desperately trying to turn Fjordman into the very sorely needed scapegoat. Scapegoats wanted, top pay with benefits! No experience necessary.

As of now there are two Fjordmans. Hopefully a lot more people will find out about the real one soon.

As opposition mounts, the anti-Europeans (AEs) rely increasingly on an European created and enforced justice system to quash dissent. By doing this, they alienate more and more Europeans, who flee to other ideologies. Then the AEs have to fill more and more positions with hostile non-Europeans, be they Africans, Indians, or Muslims.

Yet these people generally lack the cognitive ability of Europeans, and thus do not perform as well. They are capable of maneuvering within a European-dominated system, but once they themselves are tasked with operating the system, the system deteriorates rapidly. On the other hand, the pro-Europeans become stronger as a greater amount of cognitively-superior natives join their cause.

Therefore, the more brutal the AEs become, the weaker grows their police apparatus, the stronger their opponents. Even if through mass immigration the AE were larger in number, the quality of its partisans would be too diluted to pose any longer a serious threat, for ten Calibans do not a Prospero make.

Was Strommen the guy that Charles whatever his last name was at Little Green Footballs used as his source for deciding that organizations opposing mass unassimilable immigration into Europe were racist and fascist and any other derogatory name they could throw at them? It's truly an Alice Through the Looking Glass warped world where peaceful defenders of their native culture are denigrated in the worst possible terms while enablers of foreign invasion and influence (now euphemistically spun positively as "diversity")style themselves the good guys? In the old logical days, they would have been named as traitors or quislings. These exact same people who insist Europeans should roll over while they are rolled under a foreign bus would react with shock and vituperation should western nationals now pour into any Asian, African or Mid-East country making equivalent demands that the host country accommodate their religion and preferences on the double. Why is what the betrayers preach as good for the European goose not equally good for the Muslim or Asian gander? Why are Jews not encouraged to settle in Palestinian territory until they make up 1/6 of the population, the equivalent percentage of Arabs in Israel?

Is this the same Strommen who several years ago provided the "evidence" for charles johnson's slander of the CJ movement as fascist and neo-Nazi? This was back when johnson's opinion actually mattered to some reasonable people.

Obviously having read those blogs is NOT a sufficient condition for someone to then go on a spree killing rampage, as evinced by the fact that thousands of people read those blogs and do not do so.

A rather obvious logical point.

On the other hand, perhaps this so-called expert on "extremism" would care to address how the allegedly divine commands which discriminate against non-Muslims in the koran help to create a climate of hatred throughout Europe, and have inspired numerous acts of evil which can be found at religion of peace dot com.

All of this is standard Bolshevik operating procedure. See, for instance the 13.1.1953 Pravda article announcing the "Jewish Doctors Plot' -- -- all pure invention with no hold in reality whatsoever. Just like the USSR, one day Norway will come to its senses after it has paid an incalculable price for its folly. Then, it will be written that all MSM and pundit allegations about Fjordman were malicious fabrications. One can only hope that the evil drones inflicting such harm on a wothy patriot and an even grater harm on their own country, will be called to judgment on this.
