French writer Richard Millet says Anders Breivik gave Norway ‘what it deserved’

French writer Richard Millet says Anders Breivik gave Norway ‘what it deserved’

A French essayist, who claims to have read mass-murderer Anders Breivik’s 1,500 page manifesto, has said he believes Norway “got what it deserved.”

Richard Millet, a respected figure in French literature and journalism, made his claims in new 17-page attack on multiculturalism, entitled “The Literary Elegy of Anders Breivik”, described by French newspaper L’Express as a “vindictive text.”

Breivik was last week sentenced to 21 years in prison for killing 77 people in a bomb attack in central Oslo and a bloody rampage at a summer camp on the island of Utoya.

Millet said he did not approve of Breivik’s crimes but praised the fluency of his writing on social democracy and immigration.

He wrote: “Breivik is without doubt what Norway deserves, and what awaits our societies that won’t stop blinding themselves in denial. European nations are dissolving socially at the same time as they’re losing their Christian essence in favor of general relativism.”

Millet has defended his piece, telling French radio: “Multiculturalism, as it has been imported from the United States, is the worst thing possible for Europe. It creates a mosaic of ghettoes in which the nation no longer exists. Breivik, I believe, perceived that and responded to that question with the most monstrous reply.”

The piece, Éloge Littéraire d’Anders Breivik, claims similar massacres are likely to occur elsewhere in Europe.

  • If a Muslim or someone from the political Left had said this about 9-11 — they would be barred from flying on airplanes for life!

    The fact that this can be said by somebody on the radical right – and it’s “free speech” while others cannot say these things — indicates how “free speech” is skewered in favor of the radical right – and how the radical, violent right is protected by governments and security agencies!!!

    Would it be alright if somebody said” “Theo van Gogh got everything he deserved when he was murdered on an Amsterdam street!”

    Well – I would say No, but it should be free speech for someone to say Yes to the above question – without being branded “radicalized” and “dangerous!”

    He also compared Breivik to Celine.
    Celine

    Celine is one of France’s great “cursed“ artists because for all his vices, the author of Journey to the End of the Night could at least claim some genuine literary talent.

    Breivik has never demonstrated any form of literary talent unless one consider that copy-pasting far-right intellectual masturbation demands talent.

    Very typical french attitude. France is best ,everyone should assimilate philosophy over practicality .
    Pure arrogrance.

    I should know I live in France.

    Where do these people expect immigrants to live? Immigrants typically come to a country unable to afford housing in suburbia hence they live in the inner city. Then the natives move the suburbs. Why are immigrants being blamed for ‘ghettoization’?

    @bboyblue,

    If a Muslim writer had made similar statements regarding 9/11 they would most likely have been labelled a radical hate preacher, put on a no fly list or even detained for ‘questioning’.

    Excellent point.

  • @Bboyblue

    Glad I didn’t have a father like that.

  • Or maybe ‘intellectual’ justification is more acceptable than ‘honest’ support.

    Brevik didn’t write most of that stuff – wasn’t it mostly a cut paste of the unibomber and spencer and geller?
