Wow. "Norwegian authorities have arrested a high-profile U.S. white supremacist scheduled to speak at an international far-right conference in Oslo and say they will seek his deportation.

Spokesman Martin Bernsen from Norway’s domestic security agency PST told Norwegian public broadcaster NRK that a U.S. citizen was arrested Saturday “on the basis of the Immigration Act section 106” including a suspicion that “he may play an obvious role in radicalization.”

PST didn’t give the person’s name, but he was identified by Norwegian media as Greg Johnson who was a scheduled speaker in the conference by the Scandza Forum, a far-right network known for its anti-Semitic and racist views.

Based in Seattle, Washington, Johnson is a writer and editor-in-chief of the white nationalist Counter-Currents Publishing and a contributor to several publications".

Had no idea Seattle was a base for white nationalist publishing.

Norwegians: " 'Freedom of Speech'? Piffle."

It isn't really, Ruth, much more prominent in Idaho and Oregon. Good reminder though that this crap can exist anywhere and must be rooted out and exposed.

Exactly, just like BLM which is heavily rooted in Seattle.

BLM, white nationalists, etc have no place in any civilized society

Yes, this “crap” certainly can exist everywhere, just like BLM or Antifa. Are you as willing to root out and expose the crazies on the left as you are on the right?

On a different note, props to Norway for deporting someone it deems undesirable. It’s a sovereign nation’s duty to deport people considered dangerous to its citizens.

Right?

Yes?

And sanctuary for immigrants--also piffle.

Seattle area has long been home to various white supremacy people. Remember Robert Matthews & co from (IIRC) the 1980s. He was on Whidbey Island.

I guess white supremacists like beautiful mountains trees, and bodies of water too.

Exactly.

If this was an Antifa or BLM speaker or event nothing would be done. Certainly nobody would be deported.
