The IIPM (Institute of Theoretical and Artistic re-enactments) thought it was artsy-fartsy to read out loud Breivik’s explanation to an audience in Vienna. We have translations of Breivik’s explanation, originally in Norwegian, available online in over a dozen languages. There were about 250 seats available though roughly 400 people showed up, many of them journalists.
The journalists were carefully watching the audience, looking for ‘face crimes’. To add further intimidation anti-fascists had mixed into the audience and were openly observing people, creating a tense atmosphere. It’s unclear what punishment they had in mind if someone was an open Breivik supporter, maybe spit them in the face after the reading, maybe beat them up. Many of them have a ‘no debate’ policy.
Some Turkish actress was reading out the text while chewing gum, adding awkward long pauses after provocative statements, apparently in an attempt to signal the Cultural Marxists in the audience that they should laugh, but they were too busy looking for face crimes. They succeeded in turning it into some kind of comical performance during a prior reading, but this time the audience refused to laugh when signaled to do so, quietly listened to the performance. This greatly concerned the journalists present.
At the end the audience applauded, and as the applause died down a young man stood up and yelled “FREE BREIVIK!” and “BREIVIK IS RIGHT!”, after which a security guard escorted him out. The media somehow failed to report on the highlight of the evening, this brave young man, despite having over 30 cameras filming.
