Breivik slam on 'Rainbow' song an insult too far for Norwegians (+video)

Anders Behring Breivik said in testimony last week that a popular Norwegian song promoting tolerance is a Marxist brainwashing tool, but 40,000 Norwegians turned out today to reject that.

Forty thousand Norwegians marched and sang in Oslo today in an impromptu protest against mass killer Anders Behring Breivik for calling the popular children's song “Children of the Rainbow” a Marxist song used to brainwash youth.

The man behind last summer’s twin terror attacks said in court testimony last week that the Norwegian song by Lillebjørn Nilsen, based on US folksinger Pete Seeger’s original version “My Rainbow Race” in 1967, was an example of how Norwegian schools function as an “indoctrination camp” for “cultural Marxism and multiculturalism.”

Mr. Breivik, a self-described militant nationalist, blames his bombing of government buildings in Oslo and shooting rampage at Utøya island on the ruling Labor party for promoting multiculturalism with its lenient immigration policies and allowing mass immigration to undermine Norwegian society.

“The curriculum is stripped of knowledge relating to the codes of honor that have been so important for Europe for thousands of years,” Breivik told his defense attorney Vibeke Hein Baera on April 20. “They put up these songs and propaganda films to get students to despise their forefathers,” he added, referring to the US television series Roots depicting the history of African-American slaves.
