Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Daily Kos: At least 84 dead in Norway shooting.
Active on many net forums, a strong opponent of multiculturalism and immigration.

He referred to Gro Harlem Brundtland, a former Norwegian prime minister, as "nation murderrer Brundtland" in all his references to her name, using the Norwegian landsmo(r)deren Brundtland. Inserting the r there changes the word from nation-mother to nation murderer.

He was of the belief that the Norwegian Labor Party, dominant political party since WWII, was working to destroy Norway by allowing and promoting multiculturalism. He lauded Japan and South Korea for their ability to "keep their nations pure".

He's a conservative Christian and freemason, with alleged ties to right-wing extremist circles in Norway. The action has been planned for a long time - in 2009 he established a eco-agriculture company, that allowed him to buy the quantities of fertilizer required to build the bomb.

His postings on facebook (now down) and twitter, indicate that the decision was taken on July 17. On that day, the leading Norwegian daily had an article with the heading: "Utøya - the glue of the labor movement".

Utøya is the name of the island where he murdered and wounded an unfathomable number of children and youths. The police are stating at least 80 killed on the island, there are at least as many wounded, and many still missing, presumed to have drowned while trying to escape.

Daily Kos: At least 84 dead in Norway shooting.

Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Norwegian prime minister and leading international politician, was at Utøya on the day of the shootings, but left the island an hour before the shooter appeared there.

She was addressing the young political activists. The sitting prime minister was scheduled to appear on the island on Saturday.

There is speculation that he had planned to attack the seat of government, and then attack the island while Mrs. Brundtland was there.

He was cold and methodical as he carried out his killing spree - the tales told by survivors are horrifying.

It is alleged that the shooter years ago lauded the two Columbine shooters in comments on the net forum of another leading Norwegian newspaper - it is not confirmed that the nick used there is his, but the comments by that writer match his many other comments on other forums.

nick peewee in the newspaper VG:

"If you don't use your majorities, you lose your majorities."
