Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-year-old citizen of Norway responsible for the merciless killing of more than 70 people in Norway, has been declared mentally insane by court-appointed doctors.
Believing that the killings were gruesome but necessary, Breivik contended that he was waging a Christian Crusade against multiculturalism as the new Knights Templar. Breivik is responsible for a car bombing in Oslo and a mass shooting in a youth labor party meeting on Utoeya island, stating his efforts to save Norway and Western Europe from cultural Marxism and Islam by inducing the greatest amount of loss to the Labour Party to prevent their mass importation of Muslims in Norway. Breivik has planned on a 60-year or longer struggle against multiculturalism until the Knights Templar would take over Europe. The incredulous actions of Breivik have resulted in one of the most horrific and deadliest events in recent Norwegian history and have marked a return of jingoism and European backlash against immigration (read more at: “Jingoism in Norway and European Backlash Against Immigration“). Evidently, the insanity of this single individual is illustrated by his writings, including a 1,500 page manifesto known as “2083: A European Deceleration of Independence“, and his explanation for why needed to slaughter 77 of his countrymen.
“Cultural Marxism/multiculturalism especially in combination with Islam, will defeat itself. The justification for this claim is that the cultural Marxist and Islamic alliance will not last. When the window of opportunity comes, we must be ready to seize the political and military control of all funds. When the time comes, we must not hesitate. We must risk everything for the chance to get our freedom and secure freedom for our relatives. I have prepared myself mentally for a very long time, and I would like to sacrifice my life for the benefit of my European brothers and sisters.” – Anders Behring Breivik, Confessed Killer
The psychiatric evaluation of the self-confessed murderer has found that he was insane during his coming and shooting attacks in Norway. If the court agrees with the assessment, Breivik will not get a prison sentence but will be subjected to compulsory psychiatric care. According to Norwegian law, a psychotic state of mind at the time of the crime can mitigate criminal responsibility. The statement by Norway’s Forensic Board of Medicine has concluded that Breivik was suffering from such paranoid delusions of a psychotic nature, which constitute legal insanity. Breivik was scheduled to stand trial for his crimes in April, but if the recommendation is upheld, the courts will only rule his criminal insanity and length of commitment to a psychiatric institution. Nevertheless, a finding of legal insanity will not allow Breivik to escape from justice; rather, Breivik will still spend life locked away in a state psychiatric facility.
“If the cultural Marxists, against all odds, gave up on multiculturalism, if they stopped all Muslim immigration and started the deportation of all Muslims, I would forgive them for their past crimes. If they refuse to surrender until 2020, there will be turning back. We will eventually wipe out every single one of them.” – Anders Behring Breivik, Confessed Killer
In retrospect, the far-right has been vindicated and martyred by the actions committed by Breivik, illustrating the strength and destructiveness of such ideological fervor. Breivik’s infatuation will the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP), commonly known as the Nazi Party, demonstrates the altered sense of reality in which Breivik lives in. Not only do his actions mimic, to a much lesser extent of course, Hitler’s initial purge of social liberals and then the extermination of minorities; but Breivik’s manifesto exemplifies his dedication to radicalism and demonstrates the parallel between “2082: A European Deceleration of Independence” and Mein Kampf. So saying, Hitler’s insanity is a subject of much research and history and the subsequent death penalties for many of his generals and aides during the Nuremberg Trials illustrates the unforgiving nature that should be directed to such acts of brutality and cruelty. Naturally, the European continent is praised for its commitment to human rights, liberal democracy, and peace; but the acts of slaughter by Breivik are unforgivable and mirror bestial attitude, worries over dehumanizing critiques and punishment should be negligible
