Nutty Norway

Nobody thinks about Norway much. Both London and New York harbor more people each than all of Norway.

We think of Norway, when we think of it at all, which ain’t much, as being another of those peripheral places, kinda like Canada, where nice people live and mind their own business, relying on more robust nations for protection.

Imagine my shock on learning that creepy little Norway is a hotbed of political correctness, speech police and oppression of opinion.

Who told me this? Bruce Bawer via his engaging book The New Quislings. Vidkun Quisling, you may recall, led the Nazi puppet government of Norway during World War II, and his name has become a synonym for traitor.

The focus of Bawer’s book is the 2011 rampage of a lunatic named Anders Behring Breivik who bombed government buildings in Oslo, killing eight, but that was just a diversion. He then went to a political indoctrination camp* full of adolescents on a Norwegian island where he shot 69 people dead.

If only someone else had been armed.

Like many maniacs, Breivik wrote a manifesto. Breivik’s version reveals his numerous motives. He is angry at political correctness, feminism, and lax immigration laws that welcome Mohammedans, who often go directly on welfare.

He is angry at lots of things, mostly the left-wing mindset.

The manifesto makes it quite clear that Breivik’s motivation was extreme nationalism. He was channeling his inner Viking.

The manifesto reveals, among many things, that, though Breivik was not even a church-goer, he admires the Christian tradition that has bolstered his culture for centuries. He correctly views the Mohammedan mind as oppressive.

Norwegian flagThe Mohammedan-embracing, multiculture-huckstering, diversity-loving, leftist Norwegian media grabbed this detail and labeled Breivik a Christian extremist though that wasn’t his motivation.

This false notion caught on rapidly and spread.

Breivik has been convicted and sent to prison. Given Norway’s soft-headed laws, it is conceivable, though unlikely, that he could be released one day.

The biggest blowback of Breivik’s rampage, and certainly not what he intended, is that it’s now even more verboten in Norway to criticize the increasing Mohammedan presence or to speak badly of Mohammedans in any fashion.

Norway’s politically correct culture has made them a protected species. “Sensitivity” now reigns more than ever.

Meanwhile, Mohammedans hunker down in their neighborhoods, uninterested in assimilation and loathing the culture of the Norwegians who love them.

This phenomenon is growing in other parts of Europe. The Scandinavians seem especially susceptible to this nuttiness.

* The youth indoctrination camps of Norway’s ruling Labor Party are not so unlike those run by Soviets and Nazis in their heydays.

(Note: Bruce Bawer moved from New York to Norway in the late 1990s. He has written a number of books on similar topics. A good one is While Europe Slept. Being gay, Bawer is understandably concerned about the widespread Mohammedan feeling that homosexuals should be executed.)

  1. Our friend who is in his fifties and gay living in Amsterdam recently told us that because of the heavy Muslim influence it is returning to the old times of being fearful of being openly gay in public. Public smearing and accosted but not yet violent. Very sad.

    1. Shelagh: Bawer, the gay author, first moved to Amsterdam before switching to Oslo, and he says the same thing. There are growing Mohammedan neighborhoods that are outside Amsterdam’s touristy downtown. Walking through those zones wearing a yarmulke (the Jewish skullcap) is to invite violence up to being murdered. The same goes for anyone visibly gay. Rape of non-Mohammedan (i.e. not covered from head to toe by a sheet)women is not uncommon, so normal women largely don’t enter there.

      And the incredible thing is that nothing much is done about it — in the name of “sensitivity” to their culture. The authorities look the other way. It is beyond bizarre, and this is spreading rather quickly to other wide-open European nations.

  2. Another reason to live in a mostly Catholic environment. Latin America seems to be still mostly Mohammedan free. Or am I dreaming?

    1. Peter: PC is primarily a phenomenon in the English-speaking world and much of Western Europe. We Latinos ignore it. As do Asians and Africans. And Mohammedans do not want to come here because we do not have the welfare state, and nobody would treat them with kid gloves anyway.

      So you are not dreaming.

  3. You forgot to mention that in Oslo, the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates receive their Nobel Peace Prize from the Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee in the presence of King Harald V of Norway.
