The Norwegian government quarters were evacuated this morning, not in celebration of Ander Behring Breivik’s birthday, which was today, but because a 27 year old member of the Norwegian Defence League spoke about setting off some fireworks in a drunken state.
The system raided his house and found a gas pistol, a bullet proof vest, and a packed suitcase.
It appears our mystery bomber is Ron Alte, who is in fact 38 years old. He is a former chairman of the Norwegian Defense League and was wearing a bullet proof vest due to death threats from Islamic and Marxist extremists.
Ronny Alte resigned on April 19, 2012 after the NDL voted to neither renounce nor support Breivik’s 2011 attacks. Having condemned armed resistance it’s unlikely he planned to cause the parliament building to be evacuated on Breivik’s birthday, unless he had a change of heart and realized he’d have as much luck turning North Korea into a capitalist nation.
According to a statement Alte made on his blog he was drunk and kidded on the phone that he was going to bomb the parliament when asked what he was doing.
