Will blonds be stopped and questioned more at airports more frequently?
If they,over the next few years and decades,form groups of blonde terrorists publically committed to killing off all brunettes and redheads,start suicide bombing locations that have a lot of redheads and brunettes,hijack planes,separate the redheads and brunettes out and kill them,then yes,after decades of such behavior it might be time to consider such a thing.
I've read that the new right is not a fringe phenomenon. Breitvik's argument, reportedly was inspired by Geert de Wilders and Richard Pipes. What do you know of them?
Nothing about Pipes. But Wilders is maybe the best-known politicians here in the Netherlands. Rangerken recently opened THIS THREAD about him, over here. He's a modern xenophobe, basically - not willing to share the Dutch welfare state achievements with immigrants.
In a away, I am a bit happy that the current government here (consisting of the neo-liberal VVD party under prime minister Marc Rutte, and the Christian democrats) depends on the support by Wilders' party (PVV, 'party of freedom') in parliament. The government parties would cut down the welfare state, but Wilders wants it preserved - albeit only for native white Dutch...
Anders Behring Breivik, who pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges Monday while affirming he carried out the deadly attacks, had shared information and met senior members of the 2-year-old English Defense League at least once, the members said.
He met with the EDL leaders at least in March 2010, when far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders went to England for a screening of Wilders' controversial 2008 film "Fitna," which argues the Koran motivates followers to engage in terrorism, anti-Semitism, and hatred and violence against women, "infidels," homosexuals and all who violate Islamic teachings.
I examined the question of sanity, and found this.
Two experts interviewed in the BBC suggest that, beneath Brevik’s right-wing ideology, there is likely to be a “deep level of mental disturbance,” as Professor Jeremy Coid, professor of forensic psychiatry at Queen Mary college, University of London, says.
Ian Stephen, a forensic clinical psychologist, says that Breivik’s manifesto was “one of the scariest documents I’ve ever read”:
“It’s written by a man who’s absolutely meticulous in his development of his philosophy and he’s researched everything, obviously shut away for a long period of time reading, researching, digging into the internet, reading books and formulated this absolute policy of hatred of anything that is Nordic in a sense and looking at planning how to take over the world totally converted in a sort of very rather insane over-complicated deluded manner.”
Professor Coid also compared Breivik parallels with David Copeland, the London “Nail Bomber,” whose attacks in 1999 were aimed predominantly at London’s black and gay communities. Copeland was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and Coid suggests that Breivik’s case is also an example of “where extreme right-wing beliefs merge with paranoid psychosis, or delusional disorder”:
“In terms of delusional disorder, sometimes the belief that someone starts out with is not particularly bizarre, and these people often get missed. Over time, it becomes apparent that what is going into their head is enormously wrong.”…
According to Coid, Breivik could possibly also have a severe narcissistic personality, which might be indicated by “whether he gets off on publicity and being the centre of attention. Or, depending on his social interactions or the lack of them, he might have a “more schizoid personality.” Coid’s belief, though, is that Brevik has paranoid psychosis, or delusional disorder.
I was horrified to learn of this tragedy. Norway ,the home of the Nobel Peace Prize has long been a leader in both peace making and peace keeping in our world. That this should happen to these good people and from one of their own is beyond belief.
Terror, such as torture and burning “heretics” alive, was a big part of the Roman Catholic Inquisition and the intra-Christian bloodletting in Europe in the middle of the last millennium. Terror played a big role, too, in genocides committed by Christian explorers against the indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere and other unfortunate targets of colonialism.
The Hague Convention of 1899, Declaration III, prohibits the use in international warfare of bullets which easily expand or flatten in the body, giving as example a bullet with a jacket with incisions or one that does not fully cover the core.
The first thing that sticks out is how Breivik constructs his enemy: the combination of three elements (Marxism, multiculturalism and Islamism), each of which belongs to a different political space: the Marxist radical left, multiculturalist liberalism, Islamic religious fundamentalism. The old fascist habit of attributing to the enemy mutually exclusive features ("Bolshevik-plutocratic Jewish plot" – Bolshevik radical left, plutocratic capitalism, ethnic-religious identity) returns here in a new guise.
