Anders Behring Breivik, the admitted shooter in the recent Oslo massacre, fancies himself a “crusader.”
He believes himself to be a modern-day Knight Templar (as he claims in a disturbing video he posted online sometime before the attacks), on a holy mission to liberate Europe from “Islamic Colonization” ... which he views as the hidden agenda of some sort of "Marxist" and “Multi-culturalist” conspiracy.
In his video he claims people like him need not fear death, as they are protected by the “armor of faith.”
And in the name of his so-called “crusade,” he detonated a bomb in an Oslo government office building … right next to Norwegian parliament. He wasn’t even on the premises.
With his bomb … a coward’s weapon of choice … he killed 8 people.
In addition to his “armor of faith,” Breivik wore a police officer’s uniform when, shortly after the bombing, he opened fire on a crowd of 700 teens at a Labor Party youth camp. Some of the panicked teens, at seeing his police uniform, apparently even ran to him for help … only to be gunned down by him.
Armed to the teeth … against what amounts to a crowd of unarmed children … and hiding behind a police officer's uniform … he killed 68 young people.
He surrendered to authorities, likely to avoid being shot/killed by them, and has even admitted to everything ... and yet he refuses to plead guilty in court, obviously planning to use a public trial as a forum with which to further promote his irrational psuedo-nationalist ideology.
Ander Behring Breivik fancies himself a crusader, a modern-day Knight Templar of European Christendom.
Let’s make this clear: This man is not a crusader. He is not a knight, Templar or otherwise. He is neither a liberator nor a soldier. He is not even worthy of being called a terrorist, in my opinion.
Ander Behring Breivik is a delusional, narcissistic coward … nothing more than a mass murderer hiding behind his bullshit manifesto and claim to divine authority, the same way he hid behind an officer’s uniform as he gunned down 68 unarmed teenagers.
What a sad and pathetic little man you are, Breivik. May justice be swift, and your punishment severe.
