Sun Uses Nazi Singer Saga To Link Anders Breivik To The BNP

by | 4th, August 2011

HEARD the story that links the BNP to Anders Breivik, the Norwegian mass murderer and EDL fan ? THE Sun’s front-page headline declares:

BNP chief’s Nazi salute to Breivik’s heroine

The BNP chief is Chris Hurst. He can be seen giving the Nazi salute at a Far Right get together in Veroce, 25 miles north of Budapest, Hungary. We learn that he stood against Business Secretary Vince Cable in Twickenham at last year’s general election. He gathered 654 votes. (The Sun shows readers a photo of badges for sale that glory in the Holocaust – which is odd because many neo-Nazis, as well as those on the extreme Left, like to discount that genocide in public and praise it in private.)

Breivik is Anders Breivik, the man who murdered 77 people in Norway.

His heroine is a singer called Saga, a Swedish Nazi.

Anders Brehing Breivik published a 1,518 page manifesto called 2083 A European Declaration of Independence “. He sued the nom de plume Andrew Berwick. This manifesto features the passage Motivational music tracks, artist: Saga “.

Breivik calls her a courageous, Swedish, female nationalist oriented musician “. He says that Marxist and multiculturalist character assassins will claim that Saga is an evil, national socialist monsterband… this characteristic couldn’t be anywhere further from the truth “.

Breivik says he has listened to many of the tracks several hundred times “. He says they are highly recommend to revolutionary conservatives “. You should just listen to the tracks but learn the texts as well “. He fails to give it a score out of ten, but as a review it is pretty glowing. But calling her Breivik’s heroine is pushing it.

You may recall that on Breivik’s Facebook page he stated his liking for:

“Vocal elektronika (vocal trance) but also classical music and pop. Armin van Buuren, John O’Callaghan, Marcus Shossow with vocals like Audrey Gallagher, Emma Hewitt, Sarah Howells, Sheryl Dean, Helene Bøksle, Saga etc. I also appreciate classical music. Opera: Wagner, Verdi, Mozart.”

Maybe he was inspired by Saga? Maybe not. As she also said:

I just bought Modern Warfare 2, the game. It is probably the best military simulator out there and it’s one of the hottest games this year…I see MW2 more as a part of my training-simulation than anything else. I’ve still learned to love it though and especially the multiplayer part is amazing. You can more or less completely simulate actual operations.”

What makes a man murder 77 people is likely to be something more than a Nazi toe-tapper and a video game. It might be that he just likes killing people
