Norway mass killer admits to murders, denies guilt

Public hearing held on Oslo massacre


 

Anders Behring Breivik, the man who carried out July’s Norway massacre, made his first appearance in a public court without a publication ban on Monday. Breivik, 32, admitted to killing 77 people in a car bombing and shooting rampage, but refused to accept guilt, saying he rejected the court’s jurisdiction because it “supports multiculturalism.” He attempted to address survivors of his massacre at the Utoya island youth retreat who were present in the Oslo courtroom, but was cut off by the judge. Breivik also claimed to be part of a network of far-right nationalist militants fighting against the Islamification of Europe. “I am a military commander in the Norwegian resistance movement and Knights Templar Norway,” Breivik told the court. He has been in solitary confinement since his arrest in July. Breivik’s trial is tentatively scheduled to begin in April.

Norway mass killer admits to murders, denies guilt

  1. A perfect example of how the right embraces violence, racisim and hatred.

    • ^^^ A perfect example of how the left resorts to sweeping generalizations and discrimination rather than contributing any useful discussion :rolleyes:

      Why does everything have to be about left vs right these days?  Can we not have rational discussions anymore without immediately devolving to partisan politics?

      • Oh, darn.. you got me there.. the man murdered over 70 people, including children, and proclaims himself on the right.. but .. no .. your “right”, of course

        • Next up, the ‘one lone nut’ theory.

      • Bering toke the FIRST step onto the path radicalism. No way is massacre a right or left issue.

        • Breivik also claimed to be part of a network of far-right nationalist militants fighting against the Islamification of Europe.  No, no right/left issue here.. the left respects life. This guy gave up on politics and diplomacy and decided to take matters into his own hands.

          • How many million did stalin murder? And he’s just one leftist dictator of the past.

      • Forget about his Political beliefs,the most important thing is he was a ‘Christian’ or he claimed to be one.

        Christian leaders(who are mostly conservative)need to condemn his actions if they don’t want Christianity to be linked with terrorism.

        So far most right-wing political parties in Europe have condoned Ander-Behring Breviek’s actions and blamed multiculturalism.

    • I’d suggest you give your head a shake, but I think that is how these gross generalizations begin.

      • I’m shaking my head.. and all I came up with is when Mr. Harper said he want’s to “destroy” the liberal party. Our dear leader.

  2. He’s a terrorist and the Norway massacre was a an act of terror.

    We need to clamp down on religious fundamentalism,if we don’t want to see what happened in Norway.
