Norwegian police tactics managed to discourage several people from continuing as neo-Nazis.

Officers at amongst others Manglerud police station in Oslo, exercised preventative policing measures by calling youths in for conversations.

Approximately 200 of these, often including parents and perhaps a child welfare services representative, were conducted in a narrow room with six chairs and an oval table. Police also had regular contact with the parents to ensure things were kept in check.

“The discussion [method] arose because of a challenge we faced with a Right-Extremist environment that used violence, threats, and other types of crime in the mid-90s in Oslo’s Nordstrandsplatået area,” Police Superintendent Bjørn Øvrum, who headed the operation, tells NRK.

According to the broadcaster, a new Master’s thesis written by a former neo-Nazi student at the University of Stavanger now shows police methods used on eight people in the ‘90s have had a 100 percent success rate.

Describing how police-parent cooperation worked the 36-year old, former leader of the Haugesund-based group named Einzats, writes, “it was extremely annoying. Every time there was a concert, demo, or a real party (...) my mother and father came said they had already made other plans [for us]. It was inescapable. Now I understand why.”

The student alleges officers never called him in for a discussion, but says contact with two people whilst in jail was one decisive reason for rejecting extremism.

“They [a cook and a warder] made huge efforts to meet me halfway, confront my attitudes, and treat me with respect, whilst at the same time questioning what I stood for.”

The police don't like some teenager's political opinions so they call him in for "re-education" talks. They get the parents involved to covertly dissuade the teenagers from continuing with their unapproved political engagement. And they even get prisoners (convicted criminals) in on the act! How insane is this? Do they do it only for "far-right" groups or also for "far-left" groups?

The rest of the article gives us a clear idea of what exactly they have in mind when they talk about "neo-Nazis" and "right-wing extremists".
Anti-racist workers in Norway say Right-Wing extremism is on the rise, meanwhile. Breivik sent his manifesto just before his attacks to several people, including 250 British contacts. Amongst these were members of the English Defence League (EDL) and the British National Party (BNP), whose Facebook supporters freely express their Right-Wing extremist attitudes on their profiles.

So basically anyone who thinks that Muslim immigration has not been beneficial to Europe can be categorised as a "Neo-Nazi" and "right-wing extremist" in need of police and parent-sponsored re-education. We are living in the Soviet Union!
