Europeans don’t give a hoot about human rights abuses in Cuba. They strike business deals with Castro, Inc. constantly and millions of them take vacations at its apartheid beach resorts.
And, as repression increased after the opening of Obama’s Normalization Circus, they lifted the puny sanctions they had placed on Castro, Inc.
Oh, but they do care about their own human rights at home. They’re fully human, you see, unlike those savages in the Caribbean.
In fact, they care so much about their own human rights, that they can actually take seriously an appeal from a mass murderer who claims that imprisonment is a violation of his rights as a human being.
Yes, Anders Breivik — the monster who killed 77 of his fellow Norwegians in cold blood — appealed his incarceration, which, by the way, is taking place in shockingly cushy surroundings.
One of Breivik’s complaints was that he is forced to use plastic utensils to eat his food.
Fortunately, the judges at the European Court of Human Rights had enough common sense left in their Euro-enlightened brains to reject Breivik’s appeal.
But the mere fact that his appeal could be taken seriously at all shows how much the European Union cares about human rights abuses on their own turf, for their own folk, while it totally ignores human rights abuses elsewhere, among its business partners.
Breivik will probably keep appealing, and the courts will pay attention to him.
But fret not about this poor abused man’s fate. He’ll be free soon enough, since he is only serving a 21-year sentence for the premeditated murder of 77 Norwegians in a single day.
Yes, if you kill 77 people in Norway, you’re only incarcerated for 21 years. That’s less than four months of jail time per victim.
Oops… so, wait a minute. Maybe European legal logic is truly beyond our understanding. Maybe we ignoble savages of the Caribbean are subhuman after all.
From Fox News:
The European Court of Human Rights rejected an appeal Thursday by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, who claimed his incarceration violated his rights.
The Strasbourg, France-based court said Breivik, who is serving a 21-year sentence for killing 77 people in in 2011, challenged the conditions of his detention, particularly being kept isolated from other prisoners.
But it found his confinement “doesn’t reveal any violations” of the 1950 European Convention on Human Rights and therefore “rejected the application as inadmissible for being manifestly ill-founded.”
The three judges who considered the case said the decision was final.
Breivik is held in a three-cell complex in Norway where he can play video games, watch TV and exercise. He has complained about the quality of the prison food, having to eat with plastic utensils and not being able to communicate with sympathizers.
Breivik, who has legally changed his name to Fjotolf Hansen, also claimed that being subjected to frequent strip searches and the time he spent often handcuffed early in his prison term violated his rights.
Last year, Norway’s top court ruled that Norwegian authorities had not violated his human rights by isolating him in prison.
