Tommy Robinson’s positivity to the way Anders Behring Breivik approached his 22nd July attacks suffered an abrupt about-turn when confronted by a leading UK newspaper, Thursday.
The EDL leader, who also goes by the name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was obliged to declare that he neither condoned the killings, nor supported Breivik following a recent interview with Norwegian daily Dagbladet.
“I was saying that it is bad we are all playing out what he wants us to. Everything that is happening, he thought about. He has planned all of this; it is disturbing to give him what he wants,” he told The Independent.
On the subject of Utøya, which was allegedly a place designed to support Fatah by those who subscribe to the conspiracy theory, Robinson had stated to Dagbladet that justifying the attack would have been easier if it was directed against Muslims.
“Nevertheless, he would only then have been brushed off as the one that killed Muslims because he did not like Islam. Whether you like it or not, that person was quite shrewd. What he did is despicable, but he managed to make people curious.”
“[Breivik’s] blogs are full of facts. You cannot yell at people because they tell the truth. You may find that the truth hurts, but it is still the truth. I read the blogs themselves - they contain facts about Islam."
To The Independent, Robinson announced, “What I said was if it was Muslims, he would have been swept aside as a Muslim-hater. The man is a monster, he took kids away from their families. But the blogs are the truth.”
