Op-Eds Speaking Truth to the Powers-That-Be
Over 70 people were killed and more than 90 injured by a Right-wing terrorist in Oslo, Norway, and CNN played a rerun of a special with Dr. Sanjay Gupta on celebrity crime. No live coverage. No tight-t-shirt-clad Anderson Cooper actually blending in with his news subjects for a change. Fox News stopped screaming headlines once the rumor that it was Muslim extremism proved to be unfounded. The man captured had ties to a European or global white Right-wing extremist organization. He is not alone. White fear of multiculturalism is not only driving our gridlock, it is arming itself for battle. If these unyielding, dogmatic radicals do not get their way in Congress, could we see another Timothy McVeigh here in the U.S.?
Count on it.
Anders Behring Breivik, 32, whom friends described as a Right-wing gun-loving fundamentalist Christian, obsessed with multiculturalism and Muslim immigration to Norway, planned his attack on a Norwegian liberal party summer camp last Friday for months. Hours before the attack, he published his 1500+ page manifesto, and set up accounts under the Anglicized version of his name, Andrew Berwick, to put forward both his story and the method and reason of his act of terror. The New York Times reports:
“In a 1,500-page manifesto, posted on the Web hours before the attacks, Mr. Breivik recorded a day-by-day diary of months of planning for the attacks, and claimed to be part of a small group that intended to ‘seize political and military control of Western European countries and implement a cultural conservative political agenda…’
“The manifesto, entitled “2083: A European Declaration of Independence,” equates liberalism and multiculturalism with “cultural Marxism,” which the document says is destroying European Christian civilization.” 
The document also describes a secret meeting in London in 2002 to reconstitute the Knights Templar, a Medieval organization committed to driving the Muslims out of Europe and restoring Christian order in Europe.
Breivik signs his document here and there as a “Justiciar Knight Commander for Knights Templar Europe.” They are apparently the extreme Right’s new Al-Qaeda, an organization of revolutionary terrorists with principal agents in several countries.
“Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Solomonici – PCCTS (the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon), the Knights Templar was re-founded in London in 2002 by representatives from eight European countries, for the purpose of serving the interests of the free indigenous peoples of Europe and to fight against the ongoing European Jihad (referred to as the “third Jihad”). The Knights Templar was re-founded as a pan-European nationalist military order and a military/criminal tribunal with two primary objectives. The order is to serve as an armed Indigenous Rights Organisation and as a Crusader Movement (anti-Jihad movement).
The founding session (two meetings consisting of 4 founding members and host as a security precaution) was held in London, United Kingdom – Apr, 2002.

Anonymous 12 should catch Americans attention. It is possible that a cell of this raving Right Dungeons & Dragons cult is here in the United States. They have, apparently, declared war on European countries after NATO engaged Christian Serbs:
“PCCTS, Knights Templar on behalf of the free peoples of Europe, hereby declare a pre-emptive war against the cultural Marxist/ multiculturalist regimes of Western Europe. We acknowledge that Europe has been in a technical state of civil war since 1999 when European and US cultural Marxists/multiculturalists, through NATO, decided to attack Christian Serb forces and thus disallowing them their right to repel Islam from their ancestral lands.”
There are numerous articles within the document defining the “Cultural Marxism” and political correctness which Breivk sees as the destruction of European cultures.
“But what happens today to Europeans who suggest that there are differences among ethnic groups, or that the traditional social roles of men and women reflect their different natures, or that homosexuality is morally wrong? If they are public figures, they must grovel in the dirt in endless, canting apologies. If they are university students, they face star chamber courts and possible expulsion. If they are employees of private corporations, they may face loss of their jobs. What was their crime? Contradicting the new EUSSR ideology of “Political Correctness.””
He draws a parallel between the horrors of the Muslim invasion of Europe and today’s legal immigration by Muslims and others that imperils the moral and social fabric of Europe that is as unrealistically utopian as it is wrong.
His murderous rampage was his version of the Boston Tea Party. A start to the cultural war which he sees ending in 2083.
“Until the day you decide to act; we, the free peoples of Western Europe will have no choice but to take matters into our own hands and act accordingly. The PCCTS, Knights Templar is a manifestation of this initial struggle, phase 1 of the Western European civil war. 
He lays out how that hypothetical civil war might roll out. He includes amnesty in 2020 for any of the European nations, which are most all of them, identified as multiculturalist traitors:
“You are to immediately order the national police and military forces in the respective countries to stop persecuting any and all armed National Resistance Movements/Indigenous Rights Movements and allow us to create a tribunal consisting of 20 cultural conservative/nationalist intellectuals/political leaders per country. These individuals must oppose Islamisation, multiculturalism and have a long and credible track record in patriotic oriented political activism. All selected individuals must be staunch supporters of nationalistic ideological principles.” 
Breivik’s war will require all Muslims to convert to Christianity, change their names to baptized given names, speak only the mother tongue of their country of residence, destroy all Muslim imagery, limit correspondence to Muslim countries, and forbid travel back and forth to those countries. Yep. That ludicrous.
Unlike the rambling pages of the Unibomber, the most chilling thing while skimming Breivik’s lengthy tome, which is reminiscent of Hitler’s manifesto “Mein Kampf”, is the calm, literate, intelligent, and rationally reasoned manner in which it is written.
His attack, and his non-violent surrender was to a purpose. It was a wake-up call for other blue-eyed jihadis not just in Northern Europe, but to those like him who are threatened by multiculturalism and a challenge to the perceived purity of Caucasian Christian living.
Radical terrorist bombers and gunmen are nothing new. Timothy McVeigh launched an attack on the U.S. Government and killed 168 and injured hundreds more in his attack of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995. We see him as the face of white trash ignorance in America. The question is, with people like Brevik, who can’t be as easily marginalized, do they connect the dots to an even scarier bunch, the often well-funded movements of white Christians that include some of the most powerful people in the world working inside government.
Jeff Sharlet, in his book, “The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power” exposed a major global Christian white power cult that includes disgraced U.S. Senator John Ensign:
“They are the Family—fundamentalism’s avant-garde, waging spiritual war in the halls of American power and around the globe. They consider themselves the new chosen, congressmen, generals, and foreign dictators who meet in confidential cells, to pray and plan for a ‘leadership led by God,’ to be won not by force but through ‘quiet diplomacy.'” 
Why this should concern you, and why it deserves more than two minutes of CNN’s time, amongst others, is that there are millions of average white Americans in this country who have been so primed for extremism by years of Roger Ailes, Sarah Palin, and their ilk, that the “war” on multiculturalism might find a lot of takers, particularly when voiced, as Mr. Breivik has, in ways that many of these people consume their misinformation and build their hate.
How many times did we hear Righties here talk about exercising their “Second Amendment Rights” if they didn’t get their way at the ballot box in 2010?
What happens if Mr. Obama prevails again, and is re-elected in 2012? Will the Palin-primed racists of the 2008 election, the disaffected Tea Party zealots, and some of the political closet cases come together to find a different way to bring their world view to power? Breivik is a mass-murderer. Do not let, as the news media is apt to do over the coming days, anyone marginalize the danger of who he is socially and politically though. He is a symptom of a much larger and scarier cancer afflicting the world.
The confluences of the different Right-wing extremist groups inside and outside the system should always remain a cause for concern.
“With the 1,500-page manifesto, which he said took three years to complete, Mr. Breivik endeavored to find common cause with xenophobic right-wing groups around the world, particularly in the United States. He quoted extensively from the anti-Islam writings of American bloggers, and cut and pasted a whole section of the manifesto written by Theodore J. Kaczynski, known as the Unabomber, into his own, replacing “leftism” with “multiculturalism” as the object of aspersion.” 
Even as we have to fight for the specifics of social justice, maintaining the social safety net, and a more inclusive America for all, we need to always remember that it doesn’t take much to connect a few mad-men to the propagandists like Ailes and the political subversives of the Family to create a more radical group of regressives.
For every Renaissance, hopefully there is not an equal Dark Age. The signs of it building are everywhere.
My shiny two.
