Pajamas Media » A Double Tragedy for Norway

There’s a lot more to this story than meets the eye, and a lot less. At face value, a man murdered 90+ minors. Just below the surface, people with much invested in vast arrays of politicizing such things – on both sides, mind you – are scrambling for blame, cover, excuses, et al. People asking why he did this, well, aren’t very curious – he laid it out in a manifesto, leaving few stones unturned.

I’ve read some of his manifesto, and I’ll read some more. Here’s an interesting reaction from PJ:

During those hours when we all thought this was a jihadist attack, one thought that crossed my mind was that this would change the political map of Norway. For years, the Progress Party, which is the second largest of Norway’s seven or eight major parties, has led the way in calling for more responsible policies on the immigration and integration of people from Muslim countries — and has been demonized as a bunch of right-wing extremist xenophobes who hate Muslims.

I assumed that after this attack, Norwegians would vote in a Progress Party-led government in the next elections. Now it appears that the man who committed all these murders is a former member of the Progress Party and is, indeed, a right-wing extremist xenophobe who harbors (according to Dagbladet) a “violent hatred for Muslims” and multiculturalism, and who targeted the Labor Party youth camp because he blames the ruling Labor Party for the Islamization of Norway. Norway’s political future looks very different now, in short, than it did 24 hours ago.
