Ebook description:

Tens of millions of individuals all over the world had been shocked and horrified when a madman named Anders Behring Breivik set off a bomb in downtown Oslo after which attacked a political summer season camp on the island of Utoya, gunning down defenseless youngsters whereas calling out “Gotcha!” as if he had been enjoying a online game. Within the instant aftermath of the assault, earlier than the killer’s identification was recognized, some individuals leaped to the conclusion that this was one more act of Islamic terrorism. When it turned out that the killer was a local Norwegian—the writer of a rambling manifesto during which he described himself as a contemporary Knight Templar defending the values of Christian civilization—the left wing cultural elite in Europe and the US jumped to delegitimize critics of Islam by falsely and cynically linking them to Breivik. A kind of critics was American author Bruce Bawer, writer of quite a few books about the specter of Islamic radicalism and a type of whose works had been cited in Breivik’s manifesto. Bawer has lived in Oslo for a few years and has written extensively on the challenges of immigration and the unfavourable results of radical Islam on liberal societies. He’s additionally a vocal critic of the left wing cultural elite that seeks to attenuate this risk and promotes as a substitute a imaginative and prescient of a harmonious multicultural society based mostly on tolerance and mutual respect. Sadly, such “tolerance” doesn’t lengthen to critics of Islam or multiculturalism, who’re routinely labeled nativists and fascists by members of the left wing elite. The left sometimes denies or downplays the non secular motives of Islamic terrorists whereas insisting that “proper wing rhetoric” creates a “local weather of hate” which essentially results in violence. Thus the multicultural left in Europe and the US strove to color Breivik as a pro-Israel Christian terrorist whose insane actions had been inspired if not outright motivated by conservative authors who warn towards the approaching Islamization of Europe. Those that had criticized Islam, nevertheless legitimately involved they may be with the denial of fundamental human rights and particular person liberties inside Muslim communities, had been deemed formally anathema. They had been Islamophobes—racists, bigots, extremists. They had been the hazard. They had been the risk. That they had fertilized the soil during which the mass assassin had grown. This marketing campaign of vilification was waged not simply within the European press however on American blogs and within the pages of the New York Occasions. In The New Quislings , Bruce Bawer explores the world-wide response to Breivik’s rampage, from the Norwegian cultural elite to Atlantic blogger Andrew Sullivan and the New York Occasions’ Roger Cohen. He gives an enchanting portrait of the left-wing cultural elite in Norway—revealed to be the birthplace of political correctness—and exhibits how they’ve turn into apologists for radical Islam. Bawer additional argues that they’re the heirs of Vidkun Quisling, the Norwegian fascist who administered Norway underneath the heel of the Nazi regime. And he explains how those that oppose open debate and search to regulate the dialog about Islam pose the best risk to liberal society
