A Norwegian regular reader passes this along.
Major Norwegian newspaper VG (vg.no) today have prison authorities confirm that mostly women send letters to Anders Breivik, the anti islamist who killed 77 people in 2011. Many of the letters are love declarations.
In the paragraph “Get [receives] letters from all over the world”:
– He gets all kinds of letters. Senders [“Spammers” like Google Translate suggests is not the word used] are from all continents, some are very young, most of them are women, he gets some declarations of love, but the majority of the letters express support for his political views, says Hillesland.
chicks dig jerks
yes they do
a jerk in jail
is extra diggable too!
Breivik is no Don Juan in the looks department, but he still gets more marriage proposals behind bars than a law-abiding beta male will ever get buying drinks for girls at bars.
Exhibit Anders in reflexive female desire for killer men should be heartening in at least one small way to dissident rightists: You can put to rest any theory that states young, fertile women must be won over first for a revolution to get off the ground. Nah. Assert your principles, start the revolution without the women, and the women will follow once you burnish some serious badboy iconoclast cred. Add a dollop of charm and a reckless disregard for the feelings of others, and the women will come running.
In totally unrelated news, J.K. Rowling has no idea why so many Harry Potter fangirls LOVE LOVE LOVE morally dubious badboy Draco Malfoy.
