In trying to get the media to stop demonizing the Progress Party, he ends up demonizing other parties not unlike his own. What a jerk.
“It is unreasonable to compare the Progress Party with the Danish People’s Party, the Sweden Democrats and the True Finns,” he added.
The parties mentioned are not ”anti-immigrant”, but against mass immigration without any controls to facilitate assimilation, which has been btw, draining taxpayer filled, state coffers.

Norway’s Progress Party has called an international press conference to protest articles linking them to Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik, and depicting them as anti-Immigrant populist party.“The debate about our connection to Anders Behring Breivik in Norway dropped away a long time ago in Norway because we pointed out that he resigned because he was disappointed that the party was not what he thought it was,” the party’s deputy leader Ketil Solvik-Olsen told TV2.
“We want to emphasize that while we want stricter asylum policies, we are not, as is often claimed in the media, against immigration.”
The party has enlisted the help of Frank Aarebrot, professor of comparative politics at Bergen University.
“It’s important that the Progress Party get a fair treatment, and I do not they will get that while they’re bunched together with Breivik,” Aarebrot, who is a member of the Labour Party, told Aftenposten.
