Greg Johnson Arrested in Norway for Thoughtcrime


Published on Counter-Currents Publishing

Greg Johnson was scheduled to speak at the Scandza Forum conference in Oslo, Norway today. Over the last few days, the Norwegian antifa were on a social media campaign against Scandza and Greg in particular, claiming that he supports terrorism and was therefore a threat — ludicrous given Greg’s many diatribes against terrorism. Regardless, word about this apparently got to the Norwegian authorities, and he was arrested this morning before the conference on national security grounds. The police said that Greg was being deported, but he’s been held incommunicado since then, so we don’t know where he is now. Undoubtedly they will simply detain him until they can get him on a flight out of the country. This is the same routine that Jared Taylor and other thought criminals have been through before. The conference itself is proceeding and none of the other speakers or attendees were detained. Below is a statement that Greg wrote in connection with the accusations against him before his arrest.

Greg Johnson Responds to the Complaint

In connection with Scandza Forum’s conference in Oslo on November 2, 2019, Filter Nyheter is agitating to stop my entry to Norway. They have therefore put together a campaign of lies against me which they are now spreading on social media.

Filter Nyheter suggests that I promote violence as a political tool. The reality is quite the opposite. I have always consistently condemned violence and terrorism. In fact, I do not know of anyone else who has so clearly and unequivocally spoken against Right-wing terrorism as me. At the Scandza Forum in Sweden earlier this year, I gave an entire speech in which I addressed the evils of terror, and I have written numerous articles opposing it as well. I have never supported Breivik’s crimes. These stories take quotes from my writings out of context, from an article in which I in no way defended Breivik’s crimes. In fact, it was a text that discussed Breivik’s own rationale for the crime. At the moment, we are therefore looking at the possibility of taking legal action against Filter Nyheter.

The following are a selection of my statements that consistently condemn Right-wing terrorism:

Against Right-Wing Terrorism (speech at Scandza Forum in Stockholm, 2019), video below:

Understanding the New Zealand Mosque Massacre

Understanding the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre
Understanding the Charleston Church Massacre
Understanding the Poway Synagogue Shooting
Understanding the Quebec Mosque Massacre
On the Necessity of a New Right

As a further reason as to why I should be banned from entering Norway, Filter Nyheter‘s “terrorist expert” claims that The Nordic Resistance Movement had published a link to the conference on their own website. But this group has not, and never has had, anything to do with the Scandza Forum, nor is the Scandza Forum’s organizer aware of the alleged “advertisement” that Filter Nyheter claims is there. Maybe if, without their knowledge, I publish a link to Filter Nyheter, then their own journalists will receive travel bans?
