about the violence and intimidation experienced every day by young native Norwegians in the culturally enriched Groruddalen district in Oslo.
Between then and now — in less than twenty-four hours — Rights.no was pressured by the original publisher to take the article down.
Fjordman sends this brief account of what happened today in Norway.
Rights.no says that they were ordered by Finansavisen to remove the text of the Groruddalen story (in English here), despite having originally received a permission to post it. They published a follow-up entry, stating that they had received an enormous popular response to the previous article that was nearly unheard of by the standards of tiny Norway.
It spread like wildfire via alternative media on the Internet, including Twitter and many thousands of references on Facebook.
Norway faces national parliamentary elections this fall, and the left-wing coalition government is now trailing in the polls. Most of the political elites and the mass media do not want to talk about the problems mentioned in the article, especially not in an election year. People might get the wrong — or rather the right — ideas.
Human Rights Service, which republished this article online from the paper edition of business newspaper Finansavisen, is an excellent organization. However, they are vulnerable to political pressure because they receive public funding. Attempts have been made by left-wingers to slash their funding, but the right-wing Progress Party (Fremskrittspartiet) has lobbied to protect the state support for them.
