7-22: Never Forgive. Never Forget.

Anders Behring Breivik, a brutal terrorist, stole nearly 80 innocent Norwegian lives on July 22, 2011. 68 were murdered in his cowardly attack on a Labor Party youth retreat at Utøya, while another eight died from a terror bombing in downtown Oslo. Explaining why this massacre occurred is absolutely necessary, but USA’s capitalist-owned, mass media is failing at this critical task.

US media outlets immediately began reporting that Muslims carried out the attack. When they realized how foolish they looked by trying to peddle that lie, they then started claiming, ‘the shooter [no longer a “terrorist”] is a Nazi.’ However, Breivik is not a Nazi, he is a former member of Norway’s largest conservative political party, the “Progress Party.” He frequently posted online about how he equally hates “Muslims, Nazis, and Marxists” – revealing a strikingly “anti-totalitarian” ideology. Karl Popper or Hannah Arendt could have been pulling the trigger. Sounding like any old McCarthyist, he said, “all Marxists should have been imprisoned after WW2.”

While this blog strongly opposes Hitlerite ideology, we must expose the sinister lie claiming that Breivik is a Nazi. Why? Because the lie is simply a desperate attempt by the US/British capitalist press to deny the terrorist’s real ideology: Neoconservatism. Various capitalist press outlets have more recently been calling him “a Christian fundamentalist” or “an extreme right-winger.” While these descriptions seem accurate, they are also incomplete because they intentionally omit his radical Zionist beliefs.

His pathetic “manifesto” reveals that “defending Israel” is a central part of his worldview. On page 1153 he says, “Jews that support multiculturalism today are as much of a threat to Israel and Zionism (Israeli nationalism) as they are to us. So let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers against all anti-Zionists, against all cultural Marxists/multiculturalists.” A Neocon Weekly Standard article is republished in its entirety (pages 490-492), while Neocon David Horowitz’s FrontPage Magazine is quoted numerous times. In addition, his account specifically links to, and praises, the Neocon Daniel Pipes’ propaganda video titled, “Leftism and Islam. Muslims, the warriors Marxists have been praying for.” He also loves fellow Neocon Pamela Geller, who concocted the “Ground Zero Mosque” lie, and Neocon Robert Spencer’s “Jihad Watch”. Finally, he supports the “English Defence League”, a terribly misnamed, pro-Zionist hate group.

Before the shooting, Norway’s government had announced that it would end its participation in NATO’s criminal bombing of Libya on August 1. The Labor-led government also plans to recognize Palestinian statehood later this year. Obviously, this played a role in motivating the Muslim-hating fanatic to murder young members of Norway’s ruling, social-democratic party. The martyred youth held a “Boycott Israel” banner.

Breivik was also a capitalist business owner, which explains his class hatred for the working people that made him wealthy. One of Neoconservatism’s core objectives is the institution of extreme neo-liberal “austerity” attacks on workers. Therefore, no one should be surprised by his ideology.

Norway’s maximum prison sentence is only 21 years, which reveals why the terrorist did not take his own life. Neocons, being greedy, self-absorbed, hyper-individualists, are not known for suicide attacks. Bourgeois Breivik probably expects to retire atop a pile of loot in his mansion, after having pleasured himself by committing mass murder. Workers longing for justice know that if Norway had a Marxist-Leninist government, the morally decayed terrorist would be executed.

USA’s self-proclaimed “free and open” mass media will not report the simple, honest truth: the terrorist is a Neocon. If they did, they would have to admit that their own editorial pages, radio hosts, and TV commentators endlessly pump out the exact same type of hateful Neocon propaganda as the terrorist posted online. In addition, they would also have to explain that a bloody trail leads back across the Atlantic to Beltway think tanks. The world must never forgive or forget those truly responsible for creating the monster.
