Kevin Forts, of Shrewsbury, a former senior at Assumption College, began making international headlines last year with his public support of a convicted mass murderer. Tuesday, Forts was arraigned in connection with threats that caused several campus buildings to be evacuated in September 2011.

Assumption College Police said they found literature in connection with the alleged threats, including a manifesto written by Anders Breivik.

Breivik was convicted after carrying out a terrorist attack that killed 77 in July 2011 in a bombing in Oslo and at a mass shooting at a Labour Party camp on the island of Utoya. Many of the shooting victims were teens. Breivik was found guilty in August of terrorism and premeditated murder and sentenced to 21 years in jail.

In April, Forts voiced his support for Breivik, reportedly admitting that he wrote Breivik to "support him ideologically," and said that he would like to meet him.

In an interview on Norwegian VGTV conducted in Worcester, Forts told a reporter that he supported Breivik's "act of premeditated war" because it "demonstrates a spirit of nationalism and of moral conscience. He is fighting against cultural Marxism and Islamization of Norway, and he found the most rational way to accomplish that was through terrorist actions in Utoya and Oslo."

During the interview, said Breivik's attack was "atrocious but necessary."

In response to a question regarding the killing of children at Utoya, Forts called it a "political sacrifice." However, Forts went on to say that such action isn't needed again, and encouraged the study of Breivik's "platform" rather than "his atrocious actions."

Forts said he did not have friends or family that shared his beliefs.
He said that, once the initial shock of the massacre wore away, it would be "impossible to hate Breivik."

According to VG, Brevik had responded to Forts' letters: "I have received letters from supporters in 20 countries, but you appear to be someone who can write well. Yes, I am absolutely interested in discussing ideological issues with you and am thinking about how we can work together."

It is very easy to hate, a lot more difficult to understand and forgive, this is how we are challenged. Indeed it is difficult to 'hate' Anders BB, the killings on that Island were wrong yet the man is a child of God, a gentle soul who believed he killed for a better future for Europe. One can only hope that in time to come he will see the error of his ways. And to think there are those amongst us who kill US because we are Christians, because we belong to the majority culture. These are the true enemies of freedom not Anders, I am not a victim of his desires for our survival.

Anders was a fool, if he wanted to sacrifice himself he could have taken out Mullah Krekar and he would have been a hero. He could have claimed that he will take out more of these hate preaching lice and any of their terror supporters and that Norway was no off limits to them. He could have widen the net to muslim criminals.


What has he been charged with?
