Norway mass murderer an equal opportunity plagiarist? So-called "manifesto" a cut-and-paste job

The 1500+ page "manifesto" that is alleged to have been written by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has the Left and their establishment media allies doing circle jerks and kept them busy for the past few days checking the "manifesto" for names from their enemies list. But it appears to be a complete cut-and-paste job rather than the culmination of years of extensive study by the killer as has been repeatedly claimed by the media (NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, etc.) and the killer himself (in the first few pages of the "manifesto").

Even worse, if they had actually read his manifesto, rather than do a word search for targets taken from their enemies list, they would have discovered that most of this work is plagiarized and not his own work. Many of the links are already there. It's looking like the only element that is really truly his is the journal portion.

Scott Shane of the New York Times actually used this manifesto to accuse the usual suspects of helping to shape the "anti-Muslim" worldview of the killer, despite the fact that authorities have not even confirmed it was actually compiled by Breivik. And so far no one has really explained why despite this supposed raging anti-Muslim hatred that he was driven by, not a single victim of Breivik's killing spree was a Muslim (at least that I've seen reported so far). It is also interesting to note that Shane forgot to mention that the New York Times itself was cited as a source in the "manifesto". Is the Old Gray Lady also to blame for these cold-blooded murders?!?! But I digress...

Having reviewed the first 800 pages of this work, it is clear that virtually all of those sections were plagiarized from other works. I have found the sources for first ~350 pages so far and am working on tracking down the rest (which I will post here as an update).

The links to all of the sources Breivik plagiarized for the sections I've analyzed so far (through Section 2.5) are below the fold.

Less than 5% of what I have analyzed so far could possibly be original to the author of the work, and there's some internal evidence that this may have been a wikipedia-like product of multiple individuals including Breivik, such as directions to "feel free to complete this section". We'll find out more down the road.

In addition, CT expert Jarrett Brachman observed that later portions of the "manifesto" appear to be lifted wholesale from Unibomber Ted Kaczynski's 1995 manifesto with only "cultural Marxism" and "multiculturalism" replacing Kaczynski's terms. At least the Unibomber wrote his own material.

One law enforcement official I spoke with yesterday said the technical portions of the "manifesto" looks very familiar to various jihadist manuals, including "The Explosives Course" and Abu Musab Al-Suri's equally massive "The Call to Global Islamic Resistance". I'll be checking those sources to compare them with the "manifesto" (anyone who wants to check those sources and note any similarities in the comments would be greatly appreciated), but that would explain some commentary that Breivik's methodology mirrored that of Al-Qaeda's. It may literally be swiped from Al-Qaeda's playbooks.

Thus, this "manifesto", which even if it was the work of the killer, appears to be as representative of his worldview as a plagiarized term paper turned in by one of Rusty's students represents the deep thinking of a lazy college freshman trolling Wikipedia (which the "manifesto" also lifts heavily from).

But it's doubtful that the inconvenient fact that Breivik was an equal opportunity plagiarist pulling from "progressive" (Unibomber), conservative (Spencer, Steyn, et al.) and even possibly jihadist sources will change the views of the heavy-breathers at the New York Times, Washington Post, or Think Progress, because any facts which depart from the narrative that those on their enemies list are directly to blame for this grave tragedy will be quickly set aside; or used as even further proof to implicate their enemies ("See, they didn't just inform his worldview, they willingly allowed him to copy their worldview wholesale!" I assume the story will be spun). Needless to say, with this tragic incident there has been enough confirmation bias to go around on all sides.

So the claims made in the first few pages of the "manifesto" that this work represented three years of effort and hundreds of thousands of euros investment to complete are a flat-out lie. Most of this could have been compiled and edited in a day. But if you're a mass murderer, why not lie too?

But the unhinged response from the Left and the establishment media make it clear that they are willing to take wanton plagiarist and mass murderer Anders Breivik at his word if it allows them to grind their own political axes to collect the scalps of their perceived ideological enemies.

So here are the sources that Breivik and his possible collaborators for this manifesto plagiarized their material from:
