Fjordman, Former Lizard, Defends the Sweden Party

The big blog debate over neo-Nazis in the anti-jihad movement continues unabated. A Scandinavian conservative, Fjordman, gives a powerful rebuttal to Charles Johnson's views at the Gates of Vienna. Do read it.

I remain of an open mind in this debate. Though I tend to agree with Johnson, I am by no means convinced that European conservative movements are seriously tainted by extremists of the Right. Indeed, Fjordman makes a convincing argument that the European right is strongly pro-Israel and antagonistic towards anti-Semitism in Europe. Also, there are many bloggers whom I greatly respect who agree with Fjordman.
