It was 3:25 p.m. July 22, 2011. A massive bomb went off outside government headquarters in Oslo, Norway. Some people died, many were injured. There was chaos and confusion. Most people initially thought it was the first Islamic terrorism on Norwegian soil. Some, myself included, warned that it did not fit the profile.
Two hours later, a tall blond man dressed in a police uniform arrived at Utøya, a small island in a lake outside Oslo, where the Labor Party’s youth organization held their annual summer camp and politically interested teenagers gathered. He shot and murdered the only armed security person, a retired policeman so that he was able to operate without resistance.
He then proceeded with his nefarious plan: to massacre as many of these children and teens as possible.
The Long Hour
What happened next was both tragic and absurd. He walked around for half an hour shooting and killing. And then, expecting the police to arrive at any second, he took a lunch and reloading break.
Where were the police? They were not prepared. They didn’t have a helicopter. They didn’t have snipers. They didn’t even have a boat. Even the press arrived at the scene before the police.
He decided to finish his lunch and keep on shooting.
The children on the island were jumping into the cold water and trying to swim to shore. Heroic locals were gathering their boats and picking up the fleeing kids. A shameful part of the story is that the cowardly leader of the youth organization, Eskil Pedersen, panicked and fled with the only boat on the island, to save his own life.
It took 70 minutes before the police arrived and arrested the terrorist who surrendered without resistance. He managed to kill 69 and wound 66 people on the island in that long hour.
It turns out that he was not an Islamic terrorist, but a troubled Norwegian man who grew up without a father and experienced turbulence in his childhood. He found meaning in politics, especially nationalism, and transformed his aggression into an unforgivable act: to murder the children of the party he held responsible for the Islamization of Norway.
According to personality tests, conservatives are generally more conscientious and self-critical than people on the left. Because of this, you never hear anyone on the right say “that wasn’t real nationalism,” even when they should. Therefore, the globalist left was able to successfully milk the shooting for all it was worth, in order to argue how evil anyone was who disagreed with open borders and Sharia law. For years it became impossible to criticize unsustainable immigration in Norway. Even to this day, the gruesome act is used as proof that “not all” terrorists are Islamists.
The fact that gets lost in the debate, however, is that without multiculturalism and mass-immigration from incompatible cultures, this reactionary, ultra-nationalist terror attack may never have happened.
Just as the police had been grossly incompetent in stopping the terrorist, the politicians – and especially the Labor Party – had ventured into an irresponsible and reckless social experiment that began in the 1970s with far-reaching negative consequences.
And just like cowardly Eskil Pedersen who fled with the lifeboat, the politicians ran away from the responsibility for what they had done.
The Victims of Multiculturalism
Before uncontrolled mass-immigration, you could arrive at the airport ten minutes before take-off and still catch the plane. There was no security control. You could bring nail cutters and bottles of water with you on board. No more.
Before, people didn’t lock the doors because there was virtually no crime. Women could walk safely home alone in the evening without fear of being raped. On Norway’s national holiday, Constitution Day, children could safely celebrate in the streets without being afraid of politically motivated attacks. Politicians felt safe walking freely in the street without protection.
Nothing captures that unique Norwegian trust culture more than the 1973 photo of King Olav who traveled unescorted on public transport to go skiing.

That tells you everything you need to know about what Norway was like before enforced multiculturalism.
But it’s all gone now. Lost to multiculturalism. We are not allowed to criticize it. But the worst part is that we are not even allowed to mourn the ancient arctic culture that they undemocratically took from us.
We are, however, allowed to mourn the teens that were pointlessly murdered on Utøya. Hopefully one day we will also be able to restore the Norwegian culture of trust.
