Anders Behring Breivik Trial – Friday June 22 (Day 43)

9:00 The court is set.

Anders Behring Breivik Court Transcript 2012-06-22 Live Report

Judge Arntzen starts off the day by rejecting the request to broadcast Breivik’s final court statement.


9:05 Geir Lippestad begins his address:

He starts out by saying that 7/22 is hard to believe, even though a violent action around 2010 was predicted as early as 1990. Lippestad continues with some legal talk. He quotes that it’s just as bad to treat a healthy person as it is to refuse an ill person treatment.

Lippestad argues that Breivik had no prior history of violence, making it unlikely he’s driven by violent thoughts. He mentions that it’s uncharacteristic of someone who’s driven by violent thoughts to not have placed the bomb in the center of Oslo where a lot more people would have been killed, and that someone driven by violent fantasies wouldn’t have surrendered.

Lippestad argues that friends and family said Breivik was passionate about politics, not violence. Before the attacks he spend hours mailing out his manifesto to politicians and journalists. While on Utoya he spared the lives of two young children. He concludes that violence is a means to an end for Breivik, and not the goal itself.

On the subject of delusions Lippestad argues Breivik may as well have said he was Jesus, as they did not take him serious. Lippestad gives Breivik’s description of the coming civil war as a low intensity conflict that is mostly demographic in nature, a view that is shared almost universally on the far right.  Lippestad says he’s surprised the authors of the first report didn’t alter their conclusion after being confronted with the cultural context they chose to ignore.

Lippestad states that Breivik was in Liberia and London in 2002, and that it indeed would have made his job a little tricky if he had simply imagined having visited those places. He cites a police report from September 9, before the release of the first psychiatric report, where Breivik describes himself as a mere foot soldier. In October Breivik speaks of four sweaty men in a basement creating the foundation of the KT, hard to prove, but far from a bizarre reality bursting claim. Lippestad argues that lies and exaggerations are part of the arsenal of a terrorist. 

Breivik said he thought the chance of becoming a future leader of Norway to be 2 percent of 2 percent, which was written down as 1 in 200 while it should have been 1 in 2500. Lippestad confirms that shortly after the bombing there was a lynching atmosphere, something Breivik predicted. 

Lippestad argues that Breivik knew what he was doing, and that terrorists take it upon themselves to choose in matters of life and death as the end justifies the means. It’s classic terrorist thought that has been confirmed by experts in court.

Lippestad argues that Breivik’s stock trading and the writing of his manifesto do not indicate the loss of function describes in the first psychiatric report, and that being a guild leader in a WoW raiding guild is a highly structured task comparable to having a job. Breivik worked out, went to a shooting club, hung out with friends, was a free mason, and went on trips.

Lippestad confirms that Breivik had a large sum of money at his disposal. He argues that changing your interests doesn’t indicate a loss of mental function, and that the claim that Breivik uses neologisms has been thoroughly refuted.

Lippestad shares his amazement at the claim in the first report that Breivik thinks he can read minds. There is nothing in the report that supports this, merely Breivik claiming he’s a good salesman who knows how to read people.

Lippestad notes the stark difference in interviews with Breivik’s mother, in the first police report she speaks highly of her son and says she’s baffled at what happened, in her interview with the psychologists she begins to question her son’s sanity. Lippestad argues the psychologists have told Breivik’s mother that Breivik may get a light sentence if he’s declared insane, and that Breivik’s mother subsequently tried her best to portray her son in such a manner. Lippestad list the large number of psychologists who failed to find psychotic symptoms in Breivik.

Lippestad briefly addresses necessity, to view July 22 as one act of terror, and to consider that Breivik has said that from now on he will fight with the pen. He pleads for acquittal on behalf of his client.

11:34 Holden and Engh comments on Lippestad’s statement.

They basically maintain that Breivik might be insane.

12:55 Witness Sissel Wilsgård takes the stand, he was in the government quarters during the bombing.

He tells a sad tale about how July 22 made their life very difficult, forcing them to move to new locations and dealing with an increased work load with fewer people. I’m sure it brightens Breivik’s day to hear about the suffering of the Category D and C traitors running the totalitarian multicultural bureaucracy, thanks Sissel.

13:06 Next witness is Kirsti Løvlie who is the mother of Hanne Ekroll Løvlie.

Her daughter was a Category B traitor working as an adviser for the prime minister. She tells a particularly sad tale and has many people in tears, including judge Arntzen. There won’t be any tears for the victims of the multiculturalist experiment in this court room, they’re considered collateral damage for the Marxist cause.

13:20 Witness Helen Brenna takes the stand.

Brenna was on Utoya and her testimony is full of cheesy poetic language that’s supposed to convey the cheer horror of it all. She gets an applause when she’s finished, as if she’s at an AA meeting and just confessed she’s an addict. 

13:32 Next one is Unni Espeland Marcussen.

Her daughter Andrine was deputy leader of Fredrikstad AUF. Andrine was taken down with a shot in her chest and put out of her misery with a shot through the head. Good riddance.

13:43 Lara Rashid is the next witness.

She’s from North Iraq and her sister was shot in the head twice, courtesy of Breivik. There’s this saying that the only good Muslims in Europe is a dead Muslim, I don’t disagree.

14:05 It’s time for Commander Breivik’s final court address. I fixed up the translation and tried to fill in the blanks as there are obvious gaps in vg’s ‘word for word’ transcript.

Anders Behring Breivik Court Statement 2012-06-22

Breivik’s final words:

July 22 was the direct consequence of the actions of those who consciously and unconsciously are destroying our country. Responsible Norwegians who feel a sense of honor and duty are not going to sit and watch while they are turned into minorities in their own country. We are going to fight. The attacks on July 22 were preventive in nature, in defense of my ethnic group and I cannot acknowledge guilt. I acted on behalf of my people, my religion and my country. I therefore demand that I be acquitted.

Amen to that brother.

Anders Behring Breivik Trial – Thursday June 21 (Day 42)

12:05 The court is set.

Anders Behring Breivik Court Transcript 2012-06-21 Live Report

Today Engh and Holden will give their closing arguments to the court.

Engh makes a little speech, claims Breivik’s victims were random and as such the entire nation has been traumatized. She mentions the four conditions required for someone to end up in prison 1) Perform a criminal act 2) There must be no necessity or self-defense 3) There must be subjective guilt 4) The subject must be sane.

Engh says she refuses to address condition #2, not like she has to as it’s obviously a show trial. Instead she begins describing the events as hypothesized in the discredited first psychiatric report that reasons that Breivik suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. She doesn’t stress mental illness, her main goal seems to be to discredit the Knights Templar organization.

She briefly describes the bombing of Oslo and the executions on Utoya, describing Breivik as a cold blooded monster. She tries to make sure that Breivik is credited for the two deaths by drowning and falling, thanks I guess.

She wants Breivik charged with two terrorist acts and financial liability.

13:22 Svein Holden takes over.

He starts out with some lengthy legal talk. He argues it’s better to send a sane man to the madhouse than to send a mad man to prison. He also argues that if it can’t be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Breivik is sane, legal precedent holds that he should be declared insane.

Holden claims that Breivik initially wanted to be declared insane, an obvious lie as all that Breivik said was that it provided options. I have the suspicion that the main focus of the trial was to try to get Breivik to admit that the KT does not exist.

Judge Arne Lyng asks if they considered that Breivik maintains that the KT is an existing organization with sleeper cells in place to create fear among the population. Holden claims they have irrefutably disproved  that Breivik is lying, which is of course not correct. They have no idea what Breivik did in London and they have no idea what Breivik did during the evenings in Liberia. According to Eastern European sources Breivik visited a training camp in Belarus, though this hasn’t been picked up by the Western European media, making it unclear if someone made this up.

Holden maintains he’s convinced that Breivik is delusional about the KT, but the true intent appears to be to convince the population at large that they have nothing to fear, while it’s been reported that political correctness in Norway is at an all time high.

He concludes that he wants Anders Behring Breivik sentenced to compulsory psychiatric care pursuant to Penal Code § 39, or alternatively  to the custody of a time frame of 21 years and a minimum of 10 years.

As Holden finishes his statement Commander Breivik gives the Knights Templar salute. There won’t be an address by Breivik today because he’s only allowed to comment on witnesses, not the prosecution.

15:01 The court is adjourned.

Anders Behring Breivik Trial – Wednesday June 20 (Day 41)

9:00 The court is set.

Anders Behring Breivik Court Transcript 2012-06-20 Live Report

Today we’ll have two witnesses who lost a loved one on July 22 and two trauma experts.

9:03 The first witness Tor Østbø takes the witness stand, he lost his wife Tove Åshill Knutsen (56) during the Oslo bombing.

His wife was a  secretary with the electricians and information technology workers’ union. It’s a typical Category D profession as unions tend to fully embrace multiculturalism. Østbø says it’s currently politically incorrect to express hatred towards Breivik, I guess the political elite has gone for the forgiveness route. He’s annoyed with the victims not being the main focus of the trial.

9:36 The next witness is senior political adviser and Category B traitor Kirsten Vesterhus, her son Håvard Vederhus was the leader of Oslo AUF, and one of the top 10 Category B traitors executed for treason on July 22 by Commander Anders Behring Breivik of KT Europe.

She’s quite the tearjerker, but Breivik does not budge.

10:25 Next up are Dagfinn Winje and Are Holen, the trauma experts.

They observed survivors of July 22 and observed post traumatic stress in 68%, depression in 36%, and anxiety in 20%.

Next they spend over an hour talking about the various ways people have been traumatized by July 22, by being shot, getting close to drowning, watching close ones die or get injured, the whole nine yards. It has a weird educational vibe to it, and is rather boring.

13:48 Commander Breivik addresses the court.

It’s good to have two experts, perhaps the two best in Norway when it comes to stress and mental disorders. I understand that it was the counsel’s testimony, but since two of the experts were in the witness box it was a pity they did not mention anything about the traumatic experience of being deprived of your ethnic culture and religion without being able to do anything about it.

About how traumatic it is to watch your sisters being raped by Muslims, their brothers beaten and the hopelessness of the witness.

This case is about Norway’s and Europe’s future. The traumatic experience of being labeled as a right-wing extremist. These traumas that have occurred after the prolonged harassment of the right-wing. How many have been driven to suicide because of this in Norway? Maybe 10, 100?

Thank you.

1:53 Breivik finishes his address.

Special thanks to Breivik for including the traumatic experiences the trauma experts forgot to mention.

1:54 The court is adjourned.

Anders Behring Breivik Trial – Tuesday June 19 (Day 40)

09:01 The court is set.

Anders Behring Breivik Court Transcript 2012-06-19 Live Report

Today Terje Tørrissen and Agnar Aspaas answer questions from the prosecution.

The existence of the KT is brought up again, Terje Tørrissen and Agnar Aspaas maintain there is no indication of a psychosis. A little later they quote Fjordman:

I have increasingly come to suspect that Western civilization is not merely under threat, but that it is in fact already dead. It probably died many years ago; we just didn’t notice at the time. The West is currently in such an advanced state of decline that a collapse of sorts can no longer be avoided. The established momentum is too great, and the ruling oligarchs are not even trying to hit the brakes. A collapse will happen. It is only a question of how we deal with this, and whether we manage to carve out a good-sized homeland for our people afterwards.

World of Warcraft is brought up, T and A confirm that thousands of people play WoW with the same intensity that Breivik did and that it’s no indication of mental illness.

They read from Eirik Johannessen’s report where it’s argued that Breivik’s perception of himself didn’t match that of his friends. I disagree with this, and found it remarkable how well they aligned. Breivik’s friends looked up to him, admired him, and it saddened them when he withdrew in preparation of 7/22.

T and A are asked other questions, and typically confirm that Breivik’s behavior is within the normal range.

Aspaas mentions that some psychologists define ‘normal’ as what is culturally acceptable. They deny being aware of any bizarre delusions. The judge insists they clarify, but can’t give any clear examples, other than that the fear of a coming civil war is a bizarre delusion, but she’s informed that they do not consider this in the realm of bizarre.

Tørrissen mentioned he was concerned with Breivik’s lack of an emotional response when confronted with the brutality of his actions on 7/22. As a result he had a conversation with Breivik outside the courtroom, where he was reassured that Breivik appearing outwardly calm is a facade he maintains in the courtroom.

They view Breivik’s disregard for the law as a symptom of a personality disorder, but do not take Breivik’s rejection of the system into account. Based on the assumption that Breivik is sane there is no better proof that he became a militant nationalist in 2002 than his tax evasion.

T and A get themselves into a bit of a tangle when the prosecution brings up the fact that Breivik was an exemplary employee prior to 2002 and everybody finding him to be a likable guy. They can’t quite make this rhyme with a full blown personality disorder. The easiest explanation is of course that Breivik radicalized over the years with 2002, 2006, and 2009 as milestones.

This kind of nonsense continues for a while and I skipped most of it.

16:14 Commander breivik addresses the court:

I have a few comments to you and the court. And I have a question, actually, I wish to inform you that on June 22 I request that you set aside one hour for a final remark. I doubt that I will need that much, but it might be nice to have that much time.

Firstly I’d like to say that it’s quite sad that the Norwegian juridical psychiatric scourge has managed to hijack the trial. The trial should have been about the victims and the political message, for July 22 is not about psychiatry, but Norway’s and Europe’s future.

So there are some points that the prosecutor has admitted. Prosecutors have placed great emphasis on how I portrayed myself as a person in the compendium, but had he read the compendium he probably would have seen that I tend to refer to myself as a foot soldier, a single drop of rain in the storm that is to come.

Regarding the claim that there’s no context or necessity, not so long ago four Jihadists were arrested while on their way to kill more than 50 people in Copenhagen because of a caricature drawing. I have described the greater context in detail throughout 1500 pages, which is of far greater importance than a drawing. The argument is not valid.

I would like to refute the 200 points I spoke of before, but I have no opportunity to do so today. Fortunately there are many important points that have been taken up by Tørrissen and Aspaas.

Regarding the narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder. This is a serious diagnoses which is typically picked up on by the people around you, and to some extent one will fail to function in society. When it comes to being antisocial, it was assumed by Aspaas that I systematically tormented other children when I was young, which is not true. What I have explained is that “Skøyen Killers” was a small gang inspired by the “Teenage mutant ninja turtles” when we originally started listening to hip-hop. I have never harmed or threatened anyone. Hip-hop is an arguably antisocial subculture which I’ve written about in the compendium.

We never really bothered anyone, though we could have come across as threatening on a couple of occasions. When it comes to tagging, the glorification of bad role models in the hip-hop culture is certainly negative. That’s one of the reasons I wrote about it in the compendium. Other bad role models are “Sex and the City,” which glorifies loose morals. Those who engage in the ideal of mindless sex do not suffer from a personality disorder, it’s a failing system where people end up following antisocial subcultures.

In the case of Liberia and the company Diploma Services, it was at some point after 2001 that I concluded that it is impossible to resolve our problems democratically. Therefore, I decided to act contrary to the system, because I believed in a revolution. Therefore, all tax evasion and violations of the law after 2001 must be viewed in the context of July 22. Another point, other revolutionaries aren’t diagnosed with mental disorders when they break the law. For example, Che and Fidel Castro financed their revolution with theft and plunder, it does not mean they have an antisocial personality disorder, it’s a revolutionary way of thought.

When it comes to having a chip on my shoulder, it is related to culture. Cultures around the world have codes of honor like Japan and the Arab world. It is abnormal to not defend one’s honor. When it relates to my cultural attitudes it’s not a disease or a result of psychosis. In the case of tax fraud this is a consequence of my revolutionary way of thought, this includes my contempt towards others.

It’s true that I have shown contempt for my own life. When I made the fertilizer bomb I almost killed myself on five occasions. I have never been beyond contempt toward others with the exception of July 22. There is no foundation for the diagnosis of an antisocial personality disorder. As for the manifesto being narcissistic and pompous, this must be seen from a marketing perspective. I also wanted to avoid a character assassination by the media. It’s not a good source for determining grandiose ideas.

I have exaggerated my achievements and talents, like being the best in class and so on, which aren’t necessarily true. These grandiose claims are related to July 22 with my conduct being aimed at inspiring others. As all of my considerations are related to 22 July there is no basis for a narcissistic personality disorder.

When it comes to being selfish, I have dedicated the last ten years of my life to my people and country. It’s been about everyone else but me. The money spend on surgery wasn’t for me but for the cause. I haven’t been overly concerned with my appearance since 2005. When it comes to the desire to achieve a high status, I don’t believe right-wing conservatives and national socialists have a high status, they are considered the scum of the earth, so that argument defeats itself in its absurdity.

Regarding the desire for admiration. If you want admiration you should do the opposite of what I have done. I am without a doubt one of the most hated person, which has led to my demonization, the opposite of admiration. If they had diagnosed me with masochism I would be more agreeable. What I have gone through after July 22 has caused me much pain. I have never been abusive in relationships.

My supposed lack of empathy is a matter of definition. The most emphatic action a man can do is to sacrifice his life to save his people, making it a question of perspective. Those who I consider to be my enemies will of course disagree that I love my people. It’s perhaps not the most tactical decision to attack the second diagnosis, but I believe it’s the right thing to do, we’ll see.

There are two more points I’d like to address.

The first is, properly referenced in Aftenposten, that Torgeir Husby on March 18, 2009 made the following statement: “Criminal acts of psychotic individuals are characterized by poor planning, impulsiveness and violence.” And in an opinion piece in Dagbladet on January 24, 2009 Husby stated “I believe a person who is criminally insane must appear to be psychotic to everyone.”

Tor Aksel Busch said Friday that he was happy that we got two expert reports, so sanity can be examined in its full scope. Prosecutors have always seemed embarrassed and irritated that their most recent report concluded sanity. For weeks this trial has primarily been about forensic psychiatry and not ideology, and we must not forget that the prosecutors have asked for forced mental health care. Engh has worked hard to protect the integrity of the academics Husby and Sørheim.

And the way they have chosen to question the witnesses has shown that they are anything but objective. What motivates Bejer Engh and Holden is not all that interesting. It had been more interesting to hear about the motives of Attorney General Tor-Aksel Busch. He is perhaps the most influential person in this case, as he’s the one who lays down the guidelines for prosecutors. He may be the true judge in this case and it’ll be his judgement this coming Thursday.

It is surprising that the Norwegian press hasn’t confronted Tor-Aksel Busch to a greater extent in that it is he who will decide the outcome of this case. Tor-Aksel Busch should explain to the court and everyone else why he has been working actively from day one to degrade and ridicule me in order to justify the demand to have me declared insane coming Thursday.

16:30 Commander Breivik finishes his address.

I hope the next KT resistance fighter refuses to talk to psychologists and the system protectors to avoid this mess. I wonder if they would stop Breivik if he would ignore the nonsense and skips straight to the propaganda. A more defiant approach might be preferable even if it means getting declared insane.

16:39 The court is adjourned

Fun with subtitles on Youtube

It’s been a long standing tradition on Youtube to upload foreign language clips with funny subtitles as a form of comic relief, perhaps the best known are the fragments from Der Untergang, a German movie about the last days of the Third Reich where Hitler is having one temper tantrum after the other. Of course the media felt duty bound to report that it was a realistic portrayal, anyways, it’s so blatantly over the top that it makes for excellent comedy.

Here is a clip of Der Untergang where Hitler is informed about Breivik’s manifesto.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojaLojf6ZUA

I noticed the same reality bursting comedic potential when watching a video clip of day 33 of Commander Breivik’s trial where Ulrik Fredrick Malt gives his two cents on Breivik’s sanity, with Breivik having a hard time keeping his face straight. So I got inspired to to add some subtitles, nothing overly funny, but I encourage everyone with a sense of humor to create a video response with some hilarious subtitles of your own design.

Anders Behring Breivik Trial – Monday June 18 (Day 39)

09:02 The court is set.

Today Aspaas and Tørissen will give a description of the second psychiatric report and its conclusion that Breivik is perfectly sane.

09:08 Terje Tørrissen and Agnar Aspaas take the witness stand.

They confirm that they were hired to write the second report, and that they have written a supplementary report upon request of the juridical psychiatric commission. Their conversations with Breivik have been recorded, totaling 37 hours. They have examined all information available, with the notable exception of the conversations with Husby and Sørheim which were not recorded.

Tørrissen explains that between 2002 and 2006 Breivik started evading taxes. They quote the first interview with Breivik’s mother where she has nothing but praise for her son, stating that 7/22 came as a total surprise to her. They go through various witness statements where Breivik comes across as a stubborn but exemplary individual who was worried about Islamization.

In a conversation with Aspaas they address Breivik asking for the War Cross with Three Swords, Norways highest decoration. Breivik explains he wasn’t serious about receiving the medal, and that his main goal is to radicalize a small group of nationalists and influence them to become militant nationalists. It should go without saying that Breivik has to tone down his rhetoric in order to be declared sane, and that he will receive the War Cross with Three Swords after the revolution.

Breivik emphasizes that the KT is to be further developed by militant nationalists who are to follow in his footsteps. In 2083 he has created the foundations of what is to become a militant pan-European nationalistic liberation movement. He compares himself to Baden Powel who created the Boy Scouts organization.

Breivik says he understands that torture isn’t practiced in Norway, and that the remarks about torturing and executing him after his arrest were intended to intimidate the system protectors in the assumption that some of them might act irrational. 

Breivik describes he sensed an extreme level of hostility during his first court appearance and found the ordeal quite taxing. Based on this experience he has decided to be less confrontational in court to avoid a burn out.

Tørrissen addresses the neglect of the first psychiatric report to take into account Breivik’s financial asset. 

Breivik’s letters are discussed, they include love letters from 16 year old girls, declarations of support from entire families, and encouragements from like-minded individuals.

Tørrissen says he believes that Breivik responds strategically to personality tests, making it impossible to diagnose him.

Tørrissen begins describing Breivik as a narcissist. He has the decency to admit that animal abuse hasn’t been verified. An anti-social personality disorder and asperger syndrom are discussed as well.

This continues for quite a while and is all rather boring. Psychology is a borderline pseudo-science and they know it. The conclusion is that Breivik is neither psychotic nor retarded. Breivik has a serious personality disorder but is legally sane. They stress that Breivik’s ideology makes him a unique case. 

6:22 The court is adjourned.

I guess they had to find some sort of fault with Breivik in order to save their careers. Imagine the drama if they conclude that Breivik has no psychosis, no personality disorder, and instead blame 7/22 on Breivik being above average in intelligence, honesty, rationality, courage, honor, determination, self-motivation, and self-discipline. They’d have to conclude: We’re sorry judges, but it’s not our fault that real men still exist.

I came across this quote by Robert A. Heinlein some months back which describes Breivik quite well:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Tomorrow Aspaas and Tørissen will be questioned about their report.

Anders Behring Breivik Court Statement – Friday June 22

July 22 Commander Breivik made his final court statement. Most of the relatives of the executed traitors left the court room before he started in some silly form of silent protest, Breivik’s statement wasn’t meant for them anyways.

Anders Behring Breivik Court Statement 2012-06-22

I fixed up the translation and tried to fill in the blanks as there are obvious gaps in vg’s ‘word for word’ transcript. I’ll of course report on the remaining court days, but figured to prioritize Breivik’s closing statement.
