Breivik cited William S. Lind, Free Congress Foundation, & the LaRouchites
[I have updated and expanded my research on Lind, Weyrich, and the Free Congress Foundation in this post:
Updated: Breivik's Core Thesis is White Christian Nationalism v. Multiculturalism]
I have been asked to provide details about my research showing that Breivik acutally cited Lind, the Free Congress Foundation, and the LaRouchites.
Breivik cites to LaRouchite publications in at least two places in his Manifesto:
Mirak-Weissbach, Muriel. "The case of the GIA: Afghansi out of theater." Executive Intelligence Review. October 13, 1995. (p. 482)
"The New Dark Age: The Frankfurt School and `Political Correctness'" by Michael Minnicino, in Fidelio, Vol. 1, No. 1, Winter 1992 (KMW Publishing, Washington, DC) One of the few looks at the Frankfurt School by someone not a sympathiser, this long journal article explains the role of the Institute for Social Research in creating the ideology we now know as "Political Correctness." Unfortunately, its value is reduced by some digressions that lack credibility. (p. 42)
The latter text is actual copied from Lind's essay on political correctness.
Breivik also mentions William Lind directly (p. 1480):
William Lind, believes that the reason for the British being successful in that conflict was that the British Army did not use heavy weapons in that period and that the British Government forces attempted to get to know the areas involved in the conflict. Also according to Lind the British did not engage in collective punishment and desired to keep civilian casualties to a minimum. In other words they won over the population by reducing the risk of damage to civilians and their property and by getting to know the local area.
Breivik also incorporates into his Manifesto(p. 40) a section of Lind's Free Congress Foundation book on Political Correctness:
Further Readings on the Frankfurt School
by William S. Lind
This is the sixth and final chapter in the Free Congress Foundation's book on Political Correctness, or - to call it by its real name - cultural Marxism. It is a short bibliographical essay intended not as an exhaustive resource for scholars but as a guide for interested citizens who want to learn more about the ideology that is taking over America.
As readers of the earlier chapters in this book already know, to understand Political Correctness and the threat it poses it is necessary to understand its history, particularly the history of the institution most responsible for creating it, the FrankfurtSchool. The Frankfurt School, or the Institute for Social Research as it was formally known, was established at Frankfurt University in Germany in 1923. This fact alone is important, because it tells us that Political Correctness is not merely a leftover of theAmerican student rebellion of the 1960s.
Another fact from that long-ago year, 1923, is equally significant: the intended name for the Frankfurt School was the Institute for Marxism. The Institute's father and funder, Felix Weil, wrote in 1971 that he "wanted the Institute to become known, and perhaps famous, due to its contributions to Marxism as a scientific discipline..."
Some are finding it difficult to understand how Breivik, who supports Israel, could employ an antisemitic conspiracy theory. In part it is because the conspiracy theory is focused on a small handful of Jews said to be shaping history and political economy. Of course, that is the same logic of the infamous hoax document, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Conason notes that the same week that Lind "told the Holocaust deniers about those awful Frankfurt School Jews, Lind gave an interview about Islam and the war on terror to the conservative Jewish World Review."
The thory of Cultural Conservatism as outlined by Lind, Weyrich, and Buchanan was always deeply racist, and clearly in the case of Buchanan, antisemitic. It is not clear when Lind drifted over the line into an antisemitic narrative structure, although the frame of the sinister secret cabal lends itself to antisemitic interpretations. See: Toxic to Democracy.
