The Norwegian Defence League As Trojan Horse
by Andrew Hamilton
FOUNDED IN 2010, the Norwegian Defence League (NDL) is widely touted as an “extreme Right” Norwegian nationalist group. Existing primarily on the Jewish-controlled social networking service Facebook, it is a fearsome bugbear to Norway’s anti-White government, academia, and media. NDL is closely affiliated with the English Defence League (EDL), a multiracial, anti-Islamic, pro-Jewish “nationalist” organization in England.
For a worthwhile debunking of the EDL, listen to British National Party leader Nick Griffin’s 49-minute talk here.
The NDL’s website states:
NDL is against the Islamic message and Islam’s world view!
NDL is a popular movement. Regardless of what political views you have, or what ethnicity you belong to [emphasis added], you are welcome to us. The only demand we make is that you, too, believe Islamization is harmful to our country and the rest of Europe.
Political views do matter: the NDL rejects White “racism” and “anti-Semitism.”
The NDL’s website contains links to the United States Defense League, the Danish Defence League, and the German Defence League.
It lists 32 NDL”Departments” for all major geographic areas of Norway, plus an additional “Jewish Division.” Jews are the only ethnic group in the multiracial organization allotted an ethnic division of their own.
Investigative reporters for the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet revealed in February 2013 that NDL was founded by Christian Høibø, a Communist agent of the PST (Politiets sikkerhetstjeneste, Police Security Service), Norway’s secret police agency, and two other members of SOS Rasisme (not to be confused with SOS Racisme, the extremist group in France that inspired it), an anti-White domestic terrorist organization that effectively ran the NDL for two years.
See “Spy-coup against the PST’s will: Joined those he was supposed to spy on” (Spion-kupp mot PSTs vilje: Slo seg sammen med de han egentlig skulle spionere på), Dagbladet, February 21, 2013.
In actuality, though Høibø, a member of the Communist Serve the People-dominated SOS Rasisme, Blitz (an antifa communist, anarchist, and socialist youth movement that commits violence against the Progress Party, the Fatherland Party, the Democrats in Norway, and other nationalist groups), and Internationale Socialister (IS), reported on the activities of these Left-wing groups to the PST for 10 years, he remained a key figure in the hardest Left-wing circles in Oslo.
The establishment of the NDL occurred at Lorry, a downtown Oslo bar, in 2010. The first meeting was initiated by Høibø. Also present were two other members of SOS Rasisme, including an anti-White official named Bård Frantzen.
Høibø regularly reported to the PST on his role in the NDL and supplied PST, SOS Rasisme, and Tjen Folket with inside information about NDL members.
Høibø quickly transformed a poorly organized NDL Facebook network of 500 members into a large, functioning professional organization that made it easy for him to track people in the movement. The plan, endorsed by SOS Rasisme/Tjen Folket‘s leadership, was to establish a solid organizational structure, a workable membership register, and organize Right-wing demonstrations.
It is important to note that SOS Rasisme, despite perpetrating acts of violence against White Norwegians, and being controlled by Serve the People (Tjen Folket — Kommunistisk Forbund), a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist group, is very much an Establishment institution.
It was co-founded by Kristin Halvorsen, a female Norwegian MP (1989–2013), Minister of Finance (2005–2009), and Minister of Education and Research (2009–present).
Until 2010 SOS Rasisme was funded by the Norwegian state. Funding was withdrawn after an audit by international accounting firm KPMG revealed that the Communist-dominated group falsified its membership lists. State subsidies were based upon member numbers: the more members, the more taxpayer money. Half the names listed did not belong to the group. In some cases infants less than one year old were signed up as members by older family members.
Christian Høibø has also been interviewed by the government-run NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) network television program Focal Point (Brennpunkt). (“Infiltrator,” February 19, 2013, viewable online in Norwegian.)
The non-White-looking Høibø, described by the press as originally from the small mountain town of Bø in Telemark, appears to have made a living as a professional Communist and anti-White racist for 10 years from PST paychecks. If not, the racist organizations themselves must have footed the bill from their own funds.
When President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo in 2009, Høibø was present as an accredited journalist equipped with false credentials from a fictitious press agency.
Høibø described the psychology of an informer to the NRK:
You have to be alarmingly good at juggling personalities in order to do this for 10 years. For me, [the roles were] anarchist, communist, “Blitzer,” or father. One has to be able to exist as and be comfortable with this. It’s deceit that’s being conducted. You simply have to have the ability to find an On-Off switch to the mask when needed. You also need a memory that prevents you making mistakes along the way in the stories you have told.
In other words, you need to be an inveterate liar.
PST officials have confirmed Høibø’s role as an agent.
Following the recent revelations, PST drew fire from Norwegian elites, including Supreme Court Justice Ketil Lund and Socialist Left Party (Sosialistisk Venstreparti, SV) Member of Parliament Hallgeir Langeland. (SOS Rasisme founder Kristin Halvorsen is also a Socialist Left Party member.) The critics were disturbed that the secret police were spying on violent anti-White Communist organizations that are considered integral to the ruling class.
On TV, Justice Lund expressed the opinion that PST’s job was to protect Blitz and other antifa organizations, not spy on them.
MP Langeland, deeply concerned that PST had gathered intelligence on Left-wing radical groups when it should have been focusing its resources on “the threat from Right-wing extremists,” is taking the matter before the Parliamentary Intelligence Oversight Committee to ascertain whether PST had the authority to spy on the Left — ”an extremely serious matter.”
Violations of Right-wing Norwegians’ rights, of course, are taken for granted.
The PST has a long history of attacking White Norwegians. For example, it crushed the racialist organization Vigrid by intensively surveilling and harassing its youngest members.
Time magazine approvingly described PST’s operation as follows:
The agency launched a campaign to disrupt the group by sending agents to visit everyone involved except its top leaders. One day in 2004, agents from all 26 field offices paid personal visits to each of Vigrid’s members, many of whom were teenagers living with their parents. The investigators continued this tactic for several months, until about 60% of Vigrid quit the group.
It’s easy to see that PST could know who Vigrid’s members were simply by monitoring the Internet.
In addition, PST ran a comprehensive harassment campaign against Vigrid’s leader, Tore Tvedt. It engaged in extensive surveillance, house raids, arrests, and made sure he was repeatedly thrown out of rented houses.
Such methods, combined with everything else, have effectively blocked the transmission of non-genocidal views to both the present population and future generations of Norway’s rapidly-diminishing White youth.
Not a Total Surprise
A year ago, three of the five journalists who co-wrote the current Dagbladet exposé published the article, “Anti-Racists Built Extreme Right Organization” (Antirasister bygde høyreekstrem organisasjon ), Dagbladet, March 11, 2012.
Citing anonymous sources, they reported that from 2010 to early 2011 infiltrators from SOS Rasisme making up “a clear majority of the board and management of the NDL” had built, operated, and retained “full control” of the organization while reporting back to SOS Rasisme.
During the same period, the NDL was transformed from a moribund, little-known Facebook group into a nationally known “security threat.”
In February 2011, PST head Janne Kristiansen at a press conference identified the NDL for the first time as a national danger in the agency’s annual terrorist threat report.
The report specified that the largest Right-wing danger in Norway was the growing Norwegian Defence League, a subsidiary of the English Defence League (EDL). Both EDL and NDL were depicted as violent, Right-wing extremist organizations dedicated to racism, fascism, and Nazism. Any attempts to further develop NDL in Norway would be harshly suppressed.
PST and Oslo police invested considerable resources in secretly tracking White Norwegians attracted to the newly-invigorated group while Communists and PST infiltrators like Høibø and Hagen ran it.
Another leader of the NDL, Lena Andreassen, though not a Communist, cooperated with Oslo police to rid the organization of “unwanted persons” (“racists” and “anti-Semites”), and also maintained close contacts with PST.
One Left-wing infiltrator involved in the operation confided to Dagbladet that he had great respect for police officers who work against White Norwegians.
Breivik’s Alleged Membership In, and Radicalization By, the NDL
Communists, anti-White racists, and the Norwegian media conveyed the impression that Anders Behring Breivik was a member of the NDL and had been radicalized by it. The idea was to lay this at PST’s door. But it is a false accusation.
Breivik may have posted items to NDL’s Facebook page, and both Høibø and Lena Andreassen independently claim to have kicked him out of the group because of his racial views. Breivik, however, denies ever having been a member.
In fact, his ties, such as they were, with the EDL were much more extensive than to the NDL. After mentioning the NDL’s 2011 designation as a terrorist threat by the PST (long before the NDL’s true origins had been reported in the Norwegian press) in his 1,518-page manifesto, 2083: A European Declaration of Independence (2011) — the only reference to the NDL in the entire book — Breivik continues,
I know that the above description [by the PST] is nothing more than vile lies, a part of their psychological propaganda warfare against all cultural conservatives. I know this for a fact as I used to have more than 600 EDL members as Facebook friends and have spoken with tens of EDL members and leaders. In fact, I was one of the individuals who supplied them with processed ideological material (including rhetorical strategies) in the very beginning.
The EDL are in fact anti-racist, anti-fascist and anti-Nazi. They even have many members and leaders with non-European background (African and Asian). They have worked so hard, and continue to work hard, to keep National Socialists out of the organization, but yet they are strategically labeled as racist-fascist-Nazi-monsters by the multiculturalist authorities.
The EDL, although having noble intentions, are in fact dangerously naive. EDL and KT [Knights Templar] principles can never be reconciled as we are miles apart ideologically and organizationally. The EDL even rejects taking a stand against multiculturalism.
KT was formed back in 2002 as a revolutionary conservative movement because we had lost hope that the democratic framework can solve Europe’s current problems. The EDL, on the other hand, is a democratic movement. They still believe that the democratic system can solve Britain’s problems. This is why the EDL harshly condemns any and all revolutionary conservative movements that employ terror as a tool, such as the KT. And this is why, we, the KT, view the EDL as naive fools, wasting all their energy monkeyscreaming to deaf ears. (pp. 1435–36)
Freedom of Speech and Association Are Prerequisites for Democracy
In order for genuine democracy to function, a meaningful degree of free speech and free association must exist.
Anti-democratic systems can of course call themselves “democracies,” “people’s democracies,” and so forth, but that does not make them so.
Contemporary states in which mass media are concentrated in the hands of tiny, totalitarian minorities with no one else permitted a say in public discourse, that biologically destroy White populations in flagrant violation of laws prohibiting genocide, engage in replacement migration, recklessly assassinate, torture, and jail citizens, wantonly destroy entire nations, racially discriminate and oppress, formally designate pornography (the organized prostitution of and sexual trafficking in young White girls) “free speech” and proscribe core political and historical speech as “hate,” “racism,” “anti-Semitism,” “Holocaust denial,” and “disparaging the memory of the dead,” are not democracies.
Scorn democracy as zealously as you will, the fact is that Norway and other ex-Western countries hate it as much as you do.
