That’s a first. Did anyone ever call Breivik an “ultra-conservative” before? Â So this mass-murdering lunatic is just as “ultra-conservative” as an Islamic cleric? Â Weird, but I’m beginning to like the association.
“Sweden “Counter-Jihad” Rally Outnumbered by Anti-Racists,”
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A Stockholm rally by European and U.S. far-right groups seeking to create a global “counter-jihad” movement attracted fewer than 200 people on Saturday who were outnumbered by anti-racist protesters.
Pamela GellerÂ ably fisks a ridiculous AP report about the Stockholm rally.
We stood for the freedom of speech and equality of rights — that’s what’s “far-right” these days. And we were outnumbered, asÂ Pamela Geller notes: “we were ‘outnumbered’ because we had to conduct our rally surrounded by police vans and police in riot gear — not because we were violent, but because of the bloodthirsty leftist hoodlums who were screaming their bloodlust and doing everything they could to break through the police lines and do physical harm to the freedom fighters present. Many people told us they were afraid to come, or they’d get fired if they came. Some told us afterward that they wanted to come but couldn’t get through the leftist hooligans and the police. So then Reuters reports this as our rally being ‘outnumbered’ — as if there was simply no interest. Yet when we had tens of thousands at Ground Zero to stand for freedom against the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque, they ignored it or severely underreported the attendance. Anything to defame our freedom movement.”

They are insane, they are vicious, they are vile and obsessed. Those who are not entirely clueless can see through their pernicious propaganda, but a lot of good people are scared off by being associated with Â being ‘racistbigotislamophobic’ Breivickers.

“As expected, there was a hateful feeling when some of the most prominent from the Counterjihad movement visited Stockholm.”
The event went off without a major hitch, according to reports from the scene. The following account was collated from live reports byÂ Henrik RÃ¦der Clausen,Â Nilk, Fjordman, and our Swedish correspondent LN.
The Stockholm police are quoted as saying that the SDL and EDL were peaceful and caused no trouble. Initial Swedish media reports were relatively even-handed, calling the demonstration “Anti-Islamist”.
The police reported that there were about a hundred Counterjihad demonstrators. They also stated that “tens” of counter-demonstrators were arrested, and more arrests are expected in the coming days, due to public order violations. Accounts at the scene said that police employed horses against AFA/Antifa.
The antifas and EXPO had been preparing for today’s event for weeks in advance. Anti-EDL posters appeared all over Stockholm:
This one refers to the EDL as “Breivik’s foot-soldiers”.

An anti-Islam protest in Sweden ended in violence after counter demonstrators broke through a police line and threw stones, bottles and fireworks at the anti-Islam march.
Police spokesman Kjell Lendgren was reported as saying that around 400 “leftists had gathered to heckle the 100-strong demonstration,” which had been rallying to bring attention to what it argues is the Islamization of Europe.
In the counter protest, the local activists called for tolerance and warned of a rise in fascism.
They referred to the nationalist groups as “Breivik’s foot-soldiers” â€“ a reference to Norwegian ultra-conservative terrorist Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway last year.
Lendgren said the leftists shouted and blew vuvuzelas to drown out anti-Islam and nationalist speeches, but then started throwing bottles and lit fireworks at police, injuring two officers.
He said 10 activists were arrested, after which the situation calmed down.
Nationalist groups such as the English Defense League were instrumental in organizing the anti-Islam event, which was described on the anti-Islam European Freedom Initiative’s website as the “first worldwide counter-jihad action.”
