How Insane Do You Have to Be to Claim Self-Defense in Mass Murder of 77?

Anders Behring Breivik faced a Norwegian court on Monday, a court he proudly claimed he does not recognize because it take its cues from a system that supports multiculturalism.

The mass murderer of 77 people — many innocent children — confessed to his crimes, though he claimed no criminal responsibility, saying he acted in self-defense. Only in the mind of a deranged, right-wing fanatic can the murder of nearly six dozen people be considered acts of self-defense.

The AP has more on the anticipated trial of the man who killed 77 on July 22:

Dressed in a dark suit and sporting a thin beard, Breivik smiled as a guard removed his handcuffs in the crowded court room. The 33-year-old then flashed his salute before shaking hands with prosecutors and court officials.

“I don’t recognize Norwegian courts because you get your mandate from the Norwegian political parties who support multiculturalism,” Breivik said in his first comments to the court.

Eight people were killed in Breivik’s bombing of Oslo’s government district and 69 were slain in his shooting massacre at the left-leaning Labor Party’s youth camp on Utoya island outside the capital. Breivik has said the attacks were necessary to protect Norway from being taken over by Muslims.

“I admit to the acts, but not criminal guilt,” he told the court, insisting he had acted in self-defense.

The key issue to be resolved during the 10-week trial is the state of Breivik’s mental health, which will decide whether he is sent to prison or into psychiatric care. Anxious to prove he is not insane, Breivik will call right-wing extremists and radical Islamists to testify during the trial, to show that others also share his view of clashing civilizations.

Would claiming “self-defense” for these heinous acts be an indicator of total insanity?
