Man on a mission, paranoid schizophrenic, and/or media whore. The trial for Anders Behring Breivik, the confessed mass murderer, has started in Oslo.
There is no dispute that Anders Breivik killed 77 people last July, 56 of them coldly and efficiently with direct shots to the head. Indeed, he is proud of what he did, and has said, with a combination of smugness and defiance, that he wished he could have slaughtered more. The dispute which has arisen centres on his state of mind at the time he pulled the trigger. One psychiatric report declared that he was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and was therefore not responsible for his actions; a later assessment came to the opposite conclusion, that he knew perfectly well what he was doing. Both opinions will be aired at the trial in Norway which started yesterday. (The Telegraph UK)
The trial against the confessed mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has started in Oslo and will last until June 22, with a verdict expected at some point in July.
Professor Ole Gjems-Onstad is concerned that the mass murderer, who craves personal attention above else, has become a money machine and formed a symbiosis of sorts with newspapers, lawyers, publishing houses and others who make good money from his atrocities while turning him into the mega-celebrity he always wanted to be, instead of ridiculing him as the pathetic creature he is. He thinks the extensive list of ideological witnesses should have been cut, and that “The attempt to turn evil into politics is a diversion.”
Hans Rustad of Document.no was present in court as a journalist, along with his friend Christian Skaug. On the first day of the trial, he noted that Breivik seemed unmoved when his murders were mentioned. He clearly enjoys the spotlight, but otherwise seems strangely detached and cut off from reality, leaving “an impression of charade.” Rustad figured that his defense lawyers would have a hard time convincing the court that their client is perfectly sane, and did not quite seem convinced of this themselves. With his strange and enigmatic smile, like an evil version of Mona Lisa, Breivik left the impression of being a loose cannon on deck.
During the first day of the trial, the main person took to tears. The columnist Andreas Wiese and I don’t always see eye to eye, but in this case we do: Breivik’s world ends at the tip of his own surgically altered nose. He has so far shown no empathy whatsoever towards his victims, even when their parents or siblings sit a few meters from him and have to listen to how he killed their loved ones in cold blood.
When he cried as his propaganda video was shown in court, this was because he felt sorry for himself, not for others. That’s why it’s so ridiculous to hear the same mass media pretend that this has anything to do with ideology. It should be painfully obvious by now that Breivik does not care for anything greater than himself.

As everyone knows by now, Circus Breivik opened today in Oslo.
The farcical antics began long before today, however — we’ve been through a prodromal phase of several weeks during which the leftist mainstream media outlets (yes, I know that’s redundant) prepared and published their hit pieces on every writer, publication, and website they consider “xenophobic”, “racist”, or “extreme right-wing”.
