The Fjordman Deflection

A short statement about a predictable line of counter-attack
LGF • Views: 49,901

Anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller is one of the star writers at Andrew Breitbart’s “Big Government” website, and I haven’t been shy about pointing out that fact.

So today I noticed that several of Breitbart’s camp followers are attacking me in turn, by noting that I once linked to Fjordman’s articles at LGF, and that I deleted many (but not all) of those posts.

A few points in reply:

1) I’ve never tried to hide the fact that I linked to Fjordman’s articles in the years before 2007. In fact, I clearly acknowledged it in this post about the Norway terrorist: The Oslo Terrorist’s ‘Counter-Jihad’ Ideology.

2) My posts about Fjordman were deleted years ago, because I realized that the person who had represented himself as a rational critic of Islam was, in reality, a white nationalist of a particularly sneaky and nasty sort. I didn’t remove those posts to hide anything — I removed them because I wanted his crap off my site, and wanted nothing to do with him or his followers.

3) I’ve never hidden any of this. I’ve spent the last four years refuting, debunking, and arguing against Fjordman and his associates, and I invite anyone to have a look through my archives and confirm this fact. And I did this precisely because I saw something like the Oslo atrocities coming, when Fjordman, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer and the rest began dropping their masks and hooking up with European fascist groups like Vlaams Belang, the EDL, Sweden Democrats, Geert Wilders, etc., etc.

4) There’s a rather noticeable difference between this, and what Pamela Geller continues to do. One of these things is not like the other.
