Thousands of individuals around the globe have been stunned and horrified while a madman named Anders Behring Breivik trigger a bomb in downtown Oslo after which attacked a political summer time camp at the island of Utoya, gunning down defenseless children whereas calling out “Gotcha!” as if he have been taking part in a online game. within the fast aftermath of the assault, ahead of the killer’s id was once identified, a few humans leaped to the realization that this used to be yet one more act of Islamic terrorism. while it grew to become out that the killer used to be a local Norwegian—the writer of a rambling manifesto during which he defined himself as a contemporary Knight Templar protecting the values of Christian civilization—the left wing cultural elite in Europe and the USA jumped to delegitimize critics of Islam by way of falsely and cynically linking them to Breivik.

Bawer has lived in Oslo for a few years and has written largely at the demanding situations of immigration and the unwanted effects of radical Islam on liberal societies. he's additionally a vocal critic of the left wing cultural elite that seeks to reduce this possibility and promotes as a substitute a imaginative and prescient of a harmonious multicultural society in accordance with tolerance and mutual recognize. regrettably, such “tolerance” doesn't expand to critics of Islam or multiculturalism, who're sometimes classified nativists and fascists by means of contributors of the left wing elite.
The left often denies or downplays the non secular causes of Islamic terrorists whereas insisting that “right wing rhetoric” creates a “climate of hate” which inevitably results in violence. therefore the multicultural left in Europe and the U.S. strove to color Breivik as a pro-Israel Christian terrorist whose insane activities have been inspired if no longer outright inspired by means of conservative authors who warn opposed to the approaching Islamization of Europe. those that had criticized Islam, even if legitimately involved they may be with the denial of easy human rights and person liberties inside of Muslim groups, have been deemed formally anathema. They have been Islamophobes—racists, bigots, extremists. They have been the chance. They have been the danger. that they had fertilized the soil within which the mass assassin had grown. This crusade of vilification was once waged not only within the ecu press yet on American blogs and within the pages of the recent York Times.
In the hot Quislings, Bruce Bawer explores the world-wide reaction to Breivik’s rampage, from the Norwegian cultural elite to Atlantic blogger Andrew Sullivan and the hot York Times’ Roger Cohen. He presents a desirable portrait of the left-wing cultural elite in Norway—revealed to be the birthplace of political correctness—and exhibits how they've got develop into apologists for radical Islam. Bawer extra argues that they're the heirs of Vidkun Quisling, the Norwegian fascist who administered Norway below the heel of the Nazi regime. And he explains how those that oppose open debate and search to manage the dialog approximately Islam pose the best probability to liberal society.
