Following much of the media's initial "fact-free conjecture" about the origins of the atrocity in Norway, we have since had to reckon with Anders Behring Breivik's own account of his motivations put forward in his 1518-page manifesto entitled 2083: A European Declaration of Independence.
Overlooked, however, in the focus on Islamism and Islamophobia's culpability for Breivik's pathology is the way his gargantuan manifesto presents multiculturalism as just one form of the "ideology" which "now looms over western European society like a colossus". This ideology, most often known as political correctness, has, Breivik tells us, several other names. One of them is cultural Marxism, and the other is feminism.
Breivik's introduction is entirely given over to a half-baked history of political correctness, "no aspect" of which, he tells us, is "more prominent … than feminist ideology".
The PC-project is bent on "transforming a patriarchy into a matriarchy" and "intends to deny the intrinsic worth of native Christian European heterosexual males".
But more than that, it has succeeded. The "feminisation of European culture" has been underway since the 1830s, and by now, men have been reduced to an "emasculate[d] … touchy-feely subspecies".The antipathy to feminism – and women – threaded throughout Breivik's document is more than just incidental.
BREIVIK WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALIST, NOR PRIMARILY A COUNTER0-JIHADIST.
HE WAS A NUT. HE STARTED PLANNING THIS IN 1999 AFTER THE USA ATTACKED SERBIA FOR USING GENOCIDAL TACTICS AGAINST THE KOSOVARS.
BREIVIK CAN NO MORE TARNISH THE COUNTER-JIHAD THAN THE UNABOMBER TARNISH THE GREEN MOVEMENT.
