Muslim 'Offenses' Are About Power, Not Words
The historian Nils Rune Langeland, a Professor at the University of Stavanger in Norway, dared to make some statements about possible future conflicts caused by Multiculturalism and mass immigration that the establishment, self-appointed guardians of Goodness, did not like. Frithjof Jacobsen, formerly the vocalist in a hard rock band and currently the leader of newspaper VG's regular columnists, toyed in a column with the idea that maybe the security services should quietly search the flat of Mr. Langeland. He even suggested that the good Professor perhaps deserved to be "tarred and feathered" for his views.
This full-length essay was published in the country's arguably most powerful newspaper and was illustrated by a drawing made by respected illustrator Roar Hagen, showing the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) spying on a brain filled with ideas about an Islamic threat to Europe and the Western world. Columnist Jacobsen furthermore wrote that Anders Behring Breivik's mass murder was simply the "natural product" of mudslingers on the Internet who tirelessly keep repeating the same otherworldly tales about a supposed Islamic threat to our societies. In his opinion, using Breivik's atrocities to confront people harboring such opinions is "completely natural," since their criticism of Islamic aggression and terrorism means that they "share opinions with terrorists and murderers."
