It could also be called “Threat Level: Jesus” or “Watch Out! There’s a Marxist Under the Bed!” or “Satan Loves Diversity.” It’s interesting that there are Christian conservatives now commenting on my posts, claiming that Breivik wasn’t a Christian conservative because (enter various reasons here). The thing is, he called himself that. Sorry. By the same argument, Catholics consider themselves Christian, but many Christian fundamentalists don’t recognize Catholicism as Christian either. Same with Mormonism. I guess we’ll just have to let God sort it all out in the End.
I don’t know how long the video below will stay up (they’re being pulled off of YouTube and another pops up) but if this link fails, you can search for it by the title which Breivik gave it, “Knights Templar 2083“:
Some screen shots from the video are below, and a description of Breivik’s manifesto and the video from the New York Times:
On Saturday, Norway’s TV2, citing police sources, reported that the suspect uploaded a video to YouTube and a 1,500-page manifesto, written in English, to the Norwegian Web site Freak.no just hours before the attacks.
Both the manifesto, “2083: A European Declaration of Independence,” and the YouTube video were signed “Andrew Berwick,” an apparent Anglicization of Anders Breivik. Both also make extensive reference to the Crusades and the supposed threats to Christian Europe posed by Muslim immigrants and leftist political leaders…
The video’s captions call on conservatives to “embrace martyrdom.” The text also says that if “the multiculturalist elites of Europe continue to refuse to voluntarily transfer political and military power to our conservative revolutionary forces,” then World War II “is likely going to appear as a picnic compared to the coming carnage.”
The video’s extensive text also bemoans the fact that postwar “Europe never had any politicians of the McCarthy caliber.” It complains of “the demonization of cultural conservatives” and the “persecution and vilification of nationalists” by “liberal elites,” who are described as “cultural Marxists.”
An image of President Obama appears at one point in the video, as the text describes a strategy of cultural Marxists to “systematically vilify ancestral heroes and instead glorify new, more appropriate ‘idols’ who adhere to Marxism.”
Watch the video above and try to tell me that many of these images and ideas (aside from the Knights Templar bullshit) ARE NOT typical teaparty fare, that they’re not something we’ve all grown accustomed to here in America.
