EDL Deny Anders Breivik Contact Even Though He Claimed He Did - Even With Leaders

The EDL has been denying any contact or relationship to mass murderer Anders Breivik, the Norway bomber who killed more than 70 people. A news feature published on the EDL website highlights:

But Breivik claims to have had contact with the EDL HIMSELF

The EDL has no official membership requirements

Quote: ‘The EDL has previously said that it had no “official” contact with Breivik. But a security source told the Daily Mirror: “The EDL does not have, and never has had, ‘official’ membership requirements.”
That being said, it would have been easy for Breivik to use the EDL forums and Facebook Pages to communicate and gain influence. After all, he did claim have a Facebook account and have many EDL friends on there.

Breivik attended EDL demo/s

It is reported by even some EDL members themselves that Breivik attended some demo's, like a EDL demo in the city of Bradford in the UK. This has been reported by Channel 4, the Guardian and the Telegraph.

Breivik had contact with more than 600 EDL members and even leaders

In his manifesto, Breivik personally claimed to have had more than 600 EDL-supporting Facebook friends,
Quote: ‘I used to have more than 600 EDL members as Facebook friends and have spoken with tens of EDL members and leaders.’ [We emphasise the word ‘leaders’ especially]
Breivik supplied the EDL with ideas and strategies

He also says he supplied them with ideas and strategies in the beginning,
Quote: ‘In fact; I was one of the individuals who supplied them with processed ideological material (including rhetorical strategies) in the very beginning.’
Breivik regarded the EDL as having “noble intentions”

Although saying the EDL are ‘dangerously naïve’ and ‘naïve fools’, Breivik still said they work hard’ and have ‘noble intentions’.

Breivik even regarded EDL as a “blessing”

A news report by The Mirror stated that Breivik even used to chat to online members and he said to them,
Quote: “You’re a blessing to all in Europe.”
Here come the excuses

EDL leader Tommy Robinson has used the excuse that Breivik regarded the EDL as ‘naïve fools’ in his manifesto, but Breivik still says the EDL have ‘noble intentions’ (which weakens Tommy’s only argument). And anyway, he did personally claim in his manifesto to have had contact with EDL supporters online and even leaders, so perhaps there is something that is being hidden from view by the EDL.

The EDL seem to be trying to keep their reputation by denying they had any contact with him whatsoever. But Breivik’s manifesto shows us a different side to the story by the mass murderer himself. The chances of him lying in his detailed and lengthy manifesto is highly doubtful.

Note: The stories and quotes used have even been used by various news agencies such as the BBC, the Guardian and the Mirror.
