Norway’s killer

Over the past while the issue of Breivik and his murderous rampage has surfaced regularly in my thoughts. The agonies of those left maimed by the blast on the peaceful streets of Oslo. Then the utter terrors of those kids on the Refuge, a safe place. Those kids must have been stunned with disbelief that this person was amongst them discharging the weapon into them.

It seemed as plain as a pike stave that this guy was a dangerous Nutter (Be he nuts in the medical meaning or otherwise) that attempting to read more into his actions was pointless.  But now I think it’s necessary to look at him and his thoughts, polluting as they are.   Here in Europe we’ve entered a new chapter. The usual suspects were generally kept controlled, their intellectual pollination derived from local and national sources. The ideas of the neo-rightwing, though trans-national they were filtered through the local structure. The UKIP in Britain, Front National with LePen in France and the skinheads Neo’s in Germany. There are lesser groupings/configurations in ALL the other countries Spain, Italy Norway, Belgium etc. etc. But they were separate and for the most part at football/soccer games they hammered the living krapola out of each other.

Now things are very different. No longer are the ideas filtered and managed with a clean handed officer corp scumbags some of them trained lawyers. The internet has allowed penetration of ideas sourced in Norway or wherever into any nut job with Dial-up. What this means is seemingly random trans-national occurrences can have a single mind behind them.

Why is this so dangerous beyond the very obvious bomb in Oslo and the killing of the Labour kids on Utøya ?. Well, it’s really quite simple. The way the mafia worked in Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica was to hit outside your local area. 60-70 miles outside the local area. Later this meant a hitman could live in Palermo but operate in Detroit. This created a policing nightmare. There were no connection to a hit. If this is updated to the notional Europeanism as exhibited by Breivik where he hates everyone that doesn’t look like him. And then you couple it to the dangerous death throws of the newspaper business with their none too subtle anti-stranger editorial policy.  There is an incendiary concoction that I feel is in no way served by having that killers trial and his antics televised. But televised or not, it’s as well to be aware of a different configuration of those who hate everything. Last time round it got very nasty when that scum weren’t watched like a hawk.

    The important are those he killed. But I will not allow myself to think this Brievik is any more important than a piece of s……..
    He wants to be important. I’m not playing.

      Yes I understand your point. But I happen to disagree with it. There were just such insane bastards in Weimar Germany in the 1920. There, intelligent people viewed the SA/brownshirts exactly as you view this murderer. But remember it wasn’t the WW1 that caused the rise of the Nazi but the economic situation. Also remember that societies reactions to this type of attack can be if anything more repressive.
      This guy is dangerous. And playing or not, your cards are on the table as are mine. So to my mind it better to know and block the thought processes of this type than it is to awake and find cross border carnage sponsored by some hate-filled ‘ordinary’ men and women.

    Following this trial in the news has been something hasn’t it. There is something so odd about the prosecuters shaking hands with Breivik, and letting him spew his nonsense – a much different justice system than I am familiar with. While his statements are utterly insane, he sounds sane. It’s surreal.
    There is such a fine line between responsible journalism and over-the-top, for ratings only journalism – there is so much we don’t need to see (or at least I don’t). I haven’t watched any of the video. The transcripts and reports have been enough.

      What caused me to sit up was the wave of the arm. The point is it wasn’t the Fascist salute. It was like it but different.
      And I do understand the need not to view this person.

    When something senseless like this happens, it’s tempting to try to find some larger cause because it’s the randomness which frightens us. We think we can control the “mafia” through better law enforcement. But we cannot control single freaks.

    • Vince says:

      We control the Mafia through lack of fear. Their game is to terrorise those they want to control. The randomness. It’s the very same here. Whether this man is or isn’t part of a wider network -however loose- matters less than our actions and reactions.
      I’m not frightened by him or those like him. I am very fearful that the sanity displayed by the Norwegians will not be matched elsewhere.

    I found it interesting that Steig Larsson, the author of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series, spent much of his carreer tracking the goings on of neo-nazi and other racist groups in Sweden. Apparently his girlfriend and he never married because their address would have been made public by law, and he could not afford to be found.

    • Vince says:

      I hadn’t known about Larsson, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
      I worked with a fellow in England who on being asked about a client said ‘no not English, only English speaking’. The client was a Jew with a family ancestry in the UK going back at least as long.
      But I should have known whom I was working with. All the signs were there. I simply missed them. This guys father and mother lived and worked in Ireland even though they hated the place, considered most Irish animals because they would have been interned in the UK had they returned. They were Mosley’s followers, UK fascists.
      My point is with this guy, he was so far from what you’d usually call neo-scum as you could find. But he gave them a legitimacy since he sat on the fringes of the upperclass. This is true in every country that this type arise. There is a cohort sitting well inside also.

    I hear loud and clear what you say, his actions will have legitimacy upon the select ear it falls upon, and thus serve to validate his cause. The nature of our world wide media is far more forgiving and much farther reaching than ever before. Regardless how abhorive his message, it will find a ready and eager support from those perched on the fringes of our society, those who endorse his solution as a viable and (at a stretch) justifiable action against his, and their, perceived enemies. It is sad he be given such a platform. .
