BREAKING: Assumption Student Who Supported Norway Killer No Longer On Campus

Thursday, April 19, 2012

 

Assumption College released a statement tonight saying Kevin Forts is no longer on campus. Here's the statement:

Kevin Forts will not be on the Assumption College campus for the foreseeable future, and his conduct is under administrative review. Federal law prevents us from commenting substantively on student conduct and records.

The Assumption College student made headline news in Norway after proclaiming his support for Anders Behring Breivik, the mastermind behind the 2011 attacks on a summer camp in Oslo.
22-year-old Kevin Forts is from Shrewsbury and was interviewed in Worcester by VG-TV, a Norwegian television station. In the interview, Forts acknowledges that the murder of 77 individuals last summer was brutal, but necessary.

Here's the email sent from the College President to alumni:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I believe that he used it as an unprecedented attack,” said Forts. “I don’t believe that it should occur again, but I do believe that it was atrocious but necessary in that it has raised awareness for it and Breivik did that with the executions.”

Forts has reportedly also sent letters of support to Breivik’s legal team, and stated in his interview that he did so because of the accused killer’s image being distorted by the media from that of a patriot to one of a neo-Nazi.

He acknowledges that he stands alone in his views, and that his friends and family are more closely aligned with Norway’s Labor party – a political establishment that he feels Breivik was justified in attacking.

“He’s fighting against cultural Marxism and the Islamization of Norway and he found that the most rational way to accomplish that was through terrorist actions on Utøya and in Oslo,” said Forts.

Renee Buisson, Executive Director of Public Affairs for Assumption College said earlier today, "Kevin Forts has expressed his personal opinion on the Breivik case, and as a U.S. citizen, he is afforded that right. As a Catholic liberal arts institution dedicated to the moral, intellectual and spiritual integrity of the human person, Assumption College condemns the violence that occurred in Norway last July and does not support the opinions expressed by Mr. Forts. The College extends its sympathy to the victims of the violence and their families."
