News of “Hunger Strike” BLANKETS (!!!) international media!!!

hungerhunger

The hunger striker is Anders Breivik and his grievance is the lack of variety in the video-games provided to him during his imprisonment.

I SWEAR I am not making this up. Here it is...And from FoxNews no less:

Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik reportedly is threatening to go on a hunger strike for better video games and other demands.

Breivik, who is serving a 21-year prison sentence for killing 77 people in Norway’s worst peacetime massacre, sent a typed list of demands to prison authorities in November, AFP reported.

The 35-year-old describes his current prison conditions as “torture,” and went on to demand better walking accommodations, the right to communicate freely and a PS3 game console.

“Other inmates have access to adult games while I only have the right to play less entertaining kids games. One example is ‘Rayman Revolution,’ a game aimed at three year olds,” Breivik reportedly wrote, according to a letter received by AFP.

The story was picked up by the AFP (which enjoys a lavish Havana bureau, by the way) and is now everyplace from the International Business Times to Yahoo News.

Furthermore, in an intellectually sane world the head of a regime that murdered more political prisoners per capita in its first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered in its first six, and jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s during the Great Terror--in an intellectually sane world...oh what's the point......
