The victims of Oslo and Utøya: RIP

July 28, 2011

The torrent of words about Anders Behring Breivik is as nothing compared to the reality of the lives he snuffed out.

I found this montage of some of his victims unbelievably moving and more telling then many million words.

Right-wing bloggers and the hate-politicians back-pedalling as fast their little legs will carry them

July 27, 2011

The massacre in Norway by the self-confessed muslim-hating, Christian Fundamentalist, Freemason and Templar Knight Anders Behring Breivik has got the right-wing bloggers he identified with, and the hate-politicians he looked up to, running for cover. They are all busy distancing themselves from the killer, protesting their innocence vehemently, issuing new statements about how they have never advocated violence and how this is the work of a lone madman and that Breivik was never “one of them”. They conveniently forget that it is their politics of hate which has implicitly provided legitimacy for and which has fed and nurtured the distorted mind of  Anders Behring Breivik.

The retreat of the Bloggers:

On the Gates of Vienna, Fjordman has retired (exhausted – poor man), and  Baron Bodissey and Carl in Jerusalem are desperately attacking those who attack them for having double standards.  Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff has decided to make a statement which – she says – will be her only one. EU Referendum is hurt by all the unfair and unjustified blame flowing its way. Melanie Phillips takes exception to suggestions that her writings might have influenced Anders Behring Breivik’s actions.  Jennifer Rubin had to backtrack quickly when Al Qaida could no longer be blamed and she decided to blame “evil” instead. Bruce Bawer was deeply concerned that the massacre would – unfairly – hurt the cause. Anti-jihadist Pamela Geller says it’s “outrageous” that she’s been “assigned blame” and by some convoluted reasoning concludes that Breivik was a fascist (which thus absolves her). Robert Spencer denies any connection to Breivik and shrugs off any possible responsibility. Lionheart is getting desperate and has posted a rambling, incoherent and rather stupid statement. Glenn Beck has made a fool of himself again.

Hate-politicians now trying to protect the anti-Islam movement from any fall-out

Geert Wilders is getting as far away from Breivik as he can as being a lone idiot but is most concerned about  protecting the anti-Islam movement  from being associated with Breivik. Possibly the most stupid man in Sweden – let alone the most stupid politician – is the Sweden Democrat Erik HellsBorn (apt name) who said on Sunday that the massacre was the fault of multi-culturism. He was forced by his Party in a damage control exercise to remove the post from his blog and has now suspended all posts. But the Sweden Democrats are flailing about in their own little bog with Kent Ekeroth indulging in a complicated analysis that Breivik did not actually share the SD’s anti-immigration and anti-islamic views!!

Everybody may be running away from having any association with Breivik, but it would be a mistake to think that the massacre in Norway will stop the ranting in the blogosphere or the opportunistic politicians from stoking the fires of hate when it leads to electoral advantage. They will not concede so easily that they have fed and nurtured Breivik’s world in which his actions were made possible. But their line that Breivik was mad but his ideas are good just does not wash.

The shameless politicians of Italy’s Liga Nord (Mario Borghezio and Francesco Speroni), journalists (Oriana Fallaci) and the French National Front politicians (Jacques Coutela) have wasted no time in making statements supporting Breivik’s ranting. As self-proclaimed defenders of Western European civilisation their lack of class is striking and they leave a little to be desired.

Could Paul Ray or Alan Lake be Anders Behring Breivik’s UK mentor?

July 26, 2011

Right wing bloggers are busy distancing themselves from Anders Behring Breivik. These include Robert Spencer, Baron Bodissey, Pam Geller, Carl in Jerusalem, EU Referendum, Lionheart and Fjordman among others. Some are mounting a defence of their views while trying to separate their ideologies from the actions in Norway.

The anti-immigration political parties in Scandinavia are busy trying to separate their ideologies and rantings from the “insanity” of Breivik’s actions. It is interesting that they are very quick to blame any terrorist action by any Islamist group onto Islam as a whole but are now desperately denying that their ideologies could have contributed any legitimacy to Breivik or to the massacre in Norway. This morning I listened to a spokesman for the Swedish Democrats on radio but he came across as being defensive, rather plaintive and peevish and suffering under the weight of unjust accusations.

The Freemasons in Norway and worldwide are are also trying to get as far away from Anders Behring Breivik and as quickly as possible.

The English Defence League is the most likely home of Breivik’s UK support. Paul Ray (Lionheart) of the English Defence League may be one of the favourites to be  “Richard” the UK mentor of Anders Behring Breivik.

Paul Ray

Facebook: “Paul Ray even by EDL standards is a ****ing nutter. a hardline Christian fundamentalist obssessed with the crusades and St George. Ray has already been kicked out of the EDL once for insubordination and organising demos and not turning up to them. 

But he is busy pointing the finger at Alan Lake.

It has been implied several places that due to the fact I use the name Lionheart on this blog and my anti-Islamic fundamentalism ideology is similar, not the same, as Anders Breivik that Richard could mean Richard the Lionheart, thus Lionheart could mean me.

I might be a Christian fundamentalist who has a deep dislike for Islamic fundamentalism who looks to Templarism as an example, but anyone who knows me knows that I personally would play no part in such inhumane savagery that has no place in the civilised world.

…….  and now the penny has finally dropped on who the most likely person is, who ‘Richard’ the English mentor of Anders Breivik is. EDL’s financier and political controller Alan Lake.

The Right Perspective:

The “perfect knight” Norwegian terror suspect Anders Behring Breivik said he met at a 2002 London initiation ceremony of the Knights Templar is English Defence League financier and political controller Alan Lake, according to a self-proclaimed “founding father” of the group.

Ray, who calls himself one of “the founding fathers” of the right-wing English Defence League, and was arrested three years ago for “inciting racial hatred” with his blog. He writes under the penname “Lionheart,” named after King Richard I, who earned the name Lionheart for commanding armies as a teenager during the Third Crusade.

Alan Lake is not an unlikely contender. Lake is a 45 -year-old businessman from Highgate, North London, who claims to have made his money through computers, and runs a series of intranet services for far-right groups around the world. He also has strong links with the anti-immigration parties in Sweden and Norway. He spoke at a seminar organised by Kent Ekeroth of the Sweden Democrats in Malmö on 6 September 2009. In April 2010, Lake admitted to a Norwegian TV channel that he had helped to fund the EDL. Following the Utoya Massacre in Norway on 24 July 2011, Lake commented:  “Apparently, in a long screed Anders Behring Breivik posted on line, he did this attack to protest against the way that Islam is taking over large parts of Europe. By attacking the leftist politicians that are enabling this, the chickens have actually come home to roost – altho I’m sure it won’t be depicted that way”.    

Glenn Beck tries to justify the massacre in Norway

July 26, 2011

The monsters in our midst are encouraged and nourished by the rantings of their high profile friends. Anders Behring Breivik has found one such apologist for his demented massacre of innocents in Glenn Beck – the darling of  the loony right.

Beck’s rantings are indeed “ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful” but they are calculated to be extremely lucrative. Beck himself can be compared to Joseph Goebbels

  • “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”. 
  • “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

Goebbels was one of Hitler’s closest associates and  known for his zealous oratory and anti-Semitism. He played a hand in the Kristallnacht attack on the German Jews. The similarities with Beck are many. 

Norway shooting: Glenn Beck compares dead teenagers to Hitler youth (The Telegraph)

Beck, a multimillionaire darling of the Tea Party movement, said on his nationally-syndicated radio show: “There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler youth. I mean, who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics? Disturbing.”

Torbjørn Eriksen, a former press secretary to Jens Stoltenberg, Norway’sprime minister, described the comment as “a new low” for the broadcaster, who has frequently been forced to apologise for offensive remarks.

“Young political activists have gathered at Utoya for over 60 years to learn about and be part of democracy, the very opposite of what the Hitler Youth was about,” he told The Daily Telegraph. “Glenn Beck’s comments are ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful.” 

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, a Washington-based campaign group, said the remark by Beck, a free agent after being forced out of the Fox News channel earlier this year, was “absolutely disgusting”. ….. 

Despite Beck expressing surprise that political movements would hold camps for children, followers of his 9/12 Project – which aims to “recapture the spirit of the day after America was attacked” – have this summer been doing just that.

Organisers of the “vacation liberty schools” in several states told the Daily Telegraph how they taught children as young as eight a Tea Party-endorsed curriculum spanning religion, economics and political principles.

But while Beck tries to justify the massacre by denigrating the victims, the media outlets which provide him with a platform for his rants and the advertisers who pour money into such outlets bear their share of the responsibility for the creation of monsters like Anders Behring Breivik.

Anders Behring Breivik expelled from the Freemasons

July 25, 2011

Den Norske Frimurerorden

The Sovereign Grand Master of the Norwegian Order of Freemasons has posted the following notice on their website:

The Norwegian Order of Freemasons expressing compassion and care

– I am appalled by the horrible atrocity that was committed in the government district and at the Utøya island, says the Sovereign Grand Master of the Norwegian Order of Freemasons, Ivar A. Skar.

We are filled with mourning and compassion for those who have been affected and their relatives.

It has appeared in the media that the accused has been a member of the Norwegian Order of Freemasons.

He has now been excluded – the exclusion immediately effective.

The exclusion reflects that the acts he is accused of having carried out, and the values that appear to have motivated them, are completely incompatible with what we stand for as an Order.

We build our activity on Christian and humanistic values and want our members to contribute to the promotion of charity, peace and goodness among all people.

The police will of course get all the help and information we can give to contribute to the investigation.

A very correct and proper expulsion but there is a flavour of damage control in the statement. Did no other members – until now – have any inkling at all of the sick and demented nature of Anders Behring Breivik?

Anders Behring Breivik’s manifesto copied from Unabomber

July 25, 2011

Hans Rustad reports that DOCUMENT.NO has been comparing Breivik’s manifesto with the Unabomber’s and has found large portions that have been copied.

Breivik is just a clip-and-paste plagiarist and not the intellectual giant he would like to consider himself (as also do many other extremists on the far-right or the far -left who attempt to rationalise bigotry)

Breivik's manifesto

Anders Behring Breivik’s manifesto “2083”  has copied the so-called Una-bombers 
Manifesto word for word. He is also careful to cite the source, but it is 
nothing that he has borrowed from the Una-bomber.  yesterday mentioned that Behring Breivik could arouse associations with 
the Una-bomber. Now it turns out that the Una-bomber has been an important 
source of his inspiration, to the extent that Behring Breivik has copied his manifesto. 
Keywords “changing society with violence”. The only difference Behring Breivik has done is that he has replaced the word “leftist” with “cultural Marxist”. has this  information from a source who has studied the text carefully 
all night, and by chance came to see that there was identity between texts.

Is Anders Behring Breivik being a Freemason / Knight Templar of no relevance?

July 24, 2011

Anders Behring Breivik – the biggest individual mass murderer in Europe since WW II – was a Freemason and a Knight Templar and immensely proud of it.

  1. He presents pictures of himself in full Freemason regalia.
  2. His manifesto prominently carries the image of the cross of the Knights Templar.
  3. He was a member of John Lodge St. Olaus TD Three pillars of the Norwegian Masonic Order. He has the status of the 3rd degree, where the highest order is the 10th degree.
  4. He styles himself Justiciar Knight Commander, Knights Templar Europe, Knights Templar Norway.

I have always thought of modern Freemasonry as being just another club (albeit an exclusive and secretive club) where the members (Brothers) are charged with providing help and succour to other brethren. Probably for most members that is all it is. Even as a child I was often perplexed by my father’s secrecy over his own membership but also intrigued by the regalia that he and his fellow “Worshipful Brothers” wore. But it never seemed to be anything more than an exclusive club.

But perhaps Freemasonry is more than just another club. Perhaps the extent of the help to be provided between masonic brothers is considered to be above the Law. That would then be somewhat more than one would expect between members of an exclusive country club.

In all the media coverage of this demented man, there is much written about his being a Christian Fundamentalist, a hater of muslims and a right -wing fanatic but there is remarkably little about his membership of the Freemasons. But I would have expected that his “club memberships” and all his contacts and fellow members would have been the subject of intense media scrutiny (and also police scrutiny but I would expect that to be secret). If this had been in the UK where many senior police officers are known to be Freemasons (with the suspicion that to get to be a senior officer a policeman must be a Freemason), I might have suspected some “cover-up” or at least some down-playing of the masonic connections.

It is only in the recent Murdoch / News Corp hacking scandal in the UK that it has become apparent that some senior newspaper figures were also Freemasons and enjoyed a very cozy relationship with their fellow masons in the Police.

Main lodge building (stamhus) of the Norwegian Order of Freemasons in the centre of Oslo: Wikipedia

The Norwegian Order of Freemasons (Norwegian: Den Norske Frimurerorden) is the Masonic Grand Lodge in Norway. The first lodge (St. Olai Lodge – Later changed to Lodge St. Olaus to the white Leopard) was opened in 1749 and is still working. The Grand Lodge has followed the Swedish Rite since 1818, which requires its members to adhere to Christianity. During the union of Sweden-Norway, the Swedish-Norwegian king was Grand Master of the Order. The sovereign Grand Lodge of Norway was consecrated in 1891. As of 2009, the Order has about 20,000 members.

Perhaps it is not relevant but the lack of mainstream media interest in Anders Behring Breivik’s Freemasonry connections does seem exceedingly strange.

Norwegian killer Anders Behring Breivik supports Sanātana Dharma and the Saffron Brigade

July 24, 2011

Unlikely support for right-wing Hindu fanatics and their anti-muslim views can be found in the “manifesto” of the perpetrator of the Norwegian massacre – Anders Behring Breivik.

The manifesto appeared on line yesterday 


An unlikely combination: The Templar Cross and the Hindu Swastika

About Hindu nationalism he writes:

Saffronisation is a political neologism (after the saffron robes of the Hindu clerics), used to refer to the policy of right-wing Hindu nationalism (or Hindutva) which seeks to make the Indian state into a “Hindu nation” and its Sikh, Buddhist and Jain minorities incorporated into Hinduism. These nationalist movements are also called Sanatana Dharma movements.
A related term, the Saffron Brigade, is used as a descriptor of people and organisations in India that promote Hindu nationalism such as the Sangh Parivar by their critics, who allege a militant Hindu agenda. The Sanatana Dharma movements or Hindu nationalists in general are suffering from the same persecution by the Indian cultural Marxists as their European cousins. ………

The only positive thing about the Hindu right wing is that they dominate the streets. They do not tolerate the current injustice and often riot and attack Muslims when things get out of control, usually after the Muslims disrespect and degrade Hinduism too much. This behaviour is nonetheless counterproductive. Because instead of attacking the Muslims they should target the category A and B traitors in India and consolidate military cells and actively seek the overthrow of the cultural Marxist government.
India will continue to wither and die unless the Indian nationalists consolidate properly and strike to win. It is essential that the European and Indian resistance movements learn from each other and cooperate as much as possible. Our goals are more or less identical.
The PCCTS, Knights Templar support the Sanatana Dharma movements and Indian nationalists in general.

Anders Behring Breivik (aka Andrew Berwick): a madman’s manifesto

July 24, 2011

Anders Behring Breivik (Massacre in Norway) claims to have strong links with the English Defence League and over 7,000 friends on Facebook. He used Andrew Berwick as an anglicised form of his name. He has now admitted the massacre in Norway on Utoya island and the bombings in Oslo. He stopped killing only when he ran out of bullets. 

The English Defence League (EDL) is a far-right movement which opposes what it perceives as the spread of Islamism, Sharia law and Islamic extremism in England.

As Andrew Berwick he called himself a  Justiciar Knight Commander for Knights Templar Europe  and his “manifesto” was published on the internet:


He claims that this has been distributed to his 7000 Facebook friends and their friends. He ends

I believe this will be my last entry. It is now Fri July 22nd, 12.51.
Sincere regards,

The Daily Mirror reports:

Yesterday other chilling details emerged about Breivik – a right-wing loner who lived with his mother and had been plotting his killing spree for two years. The blue-eyed blond portrayed himself as a successful entrepreneur who made a million by the age of 24 from a fruit-and-veg business. But behind the boyish good looks was a Nazi ­sympathiser who admired extremist groups – including the English Defence League and the British National Party.

He has a lust for violent films and computer games and holds a licence for three guns. His Facebook page says he loves bodybuilding and Call Of Duty – where players can shoot people on an island. And he says his top TV show is US-drama Dexter – in which a police officer turns into a serial killer. He lists his favourite films as Gladiator and 300, where a small band of soldiers fight to the last man against an army of one million. Police believe this love of violence inspired Breivik’s massacre on Friday.

Breivik was a straight-A student at school and went to Oslo Commerce School – an institution devoted to ­business and management. He launched his own firm, Breivik Geofarm, 10 years ago and claimed to have become a millionaire within two years. Until recently his main home was a flat in a wealthy suburb of Oslo, but months ago he switched to a remote farmhouse outside the capital, where he lived with his mum.

Detectives believe it was from this farmhouse that he stockpiled the supplies for his killing spree. On May 4 he ordered six tonnes of fertiliser – the likely ­ingredient for the bomb that ripped through the Government district in Oslo.

Piles of the fertiliser were yesterday neatly stacked at the bottom of his garden in large white sacks and were being searched by forensic officers. They were also inspecting the flat and neatly kept farmhouse in a hunt for clues. And as detectives questioned Breivik over the bloodbath, details emerged about the suspect’s right-wing political background – with one friend even ­likening him to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Breivik was a member of Norway’s right-wing Progress party from 1999 to 2006 – but quit because he thought the group was not being radical enough in its policies.

His own political rants, many posted online, may provide clues as to why his attacks targeted Norwegian prime ­minister Jens Stoltenberg – leader of the country’s Labour Party. Breivik is believed to have turned to right-wing extremism in his late 20s after serving in the military as part of his ­national service.

He describes himself as a Christian and a Conservative on his Facebook profile – and also claims that he is a fan of Winston Churchill. In many messages he criticises ­immigrants and Norwegian politicians who sympathise with them. An extensive blogger, Breivik regularly writes about far-right political parties including the English Defence League. He also admits to being a fan of BNP leader Nick Griffin.

Yesterday Norwegian police chief ­Sveinung Sponheim, who is leading the investigation into the massacre, said the rants give a clear indication of his evil. “His internet postings on several ­forums suggest he has political traits directed towards the right – and anti-Muslim views,” he said. A friend who attended Progress Party rallies with Breivik said he reminded him of Hitler. “He was shy and not particularly active in the party,” the friend said. “He didn’t attend any events apart from the annual national conference where he was very studious and would sit back and listen rather than join in. ” Last night Ove Vanebo, youth leader of the Progress Party, said: “We did not think he was capable of something like that. “He was apparently a quiet and modest man.”
