Burzum's Varg Vikernes has been arrested in France, accused of plotting a massacre, according to reports.

Le Monde writes that Vikernes was taken into custody early this morning (July 16) at his farm near the town of Salon-la Tour in the Corrèze département. The arrest was made by the Central Directorate of Internal Intelligence, who say they suspect him of "preparing a massacre". According to the press, Vikernes' French wife and three children live with him on the farm, which is currently being searched for weapons and explosives. UPDATE: apparently Vikernes' wife is a member of a shooting club, and recently legally purchased four rifles. Reuters reports that officials started investigating Vikernes after the mass murderer Anders Brevik sent him a copy of his manifesto. ""That was at the origin of the investigation ... There were several suspicions that made the services fear he could possibly carry out a violent act," an official said.

Yet in a vile, anti-Semitic post called War in Europe: Part V in late 2012, Vikernes ranted in criticism of his actions: "To Breivik I can only say I hope you do kill yourself.... you have made a big mistake." He also writes: "As long as there are true Europeans alive they will continue to fail, and our European blood makes sure that we can at any time revive the true European spirit and turn Europe into our Elysium again. Today we are on the offensive. For the first time in many decades. The final solution to this problem is not to kill anyone, but to raise our children with European ideals and values, and a European world view, and make sure that Christianity dies out when our coward parent generation dies out."

"Yet in a vile, anti-Semitic post" This article is not biased at all

It's The Quietus, not the BBC. Also, have you read any of Vikernes' writing? Dude's way off the deep end, and I say that as someone who bought all of Burzum's records as they came out.

Have you actually read Vikernes' entire piece? I just have and rather wish I hadn't. Yes, it's vile and anti-Semitic. I don't see how any rational or reasonable person could see otherwise.

I didn't link to the piece because I don't want to give the man traffic, and yeah, it's a disgusting, anti-Semitic, racist, unhealthy rant, you can take my word on that.

Dear Quietus, you forget to mention the other things Vikernes says in that blog-post: "Every day thousands of Europeans wake up and see the true white light, and they see the true face of the backstabbing, treacherous, money-lending, murderous, coward, paedophile slaver-Jew. The tide has turned, and yet again Europe is about to rid itself of the eternal Jew and his destructive influence, like we have done so many times before as well. However, we must remember that as long as we or some of us embrace Christianity the Jew will be allowed to return, with all his evils, and we will again head for disaster."

Awww, you're a moron, that's sweet. No, ridding the world of all superstitious ideology, racial characterisation and genderphobia will save us. Getting rid of idiots like you would help too.

I can't say I'm surprised knowing Vikernes' history, but it always strikes me as freakish as to how someone could actually come to believe those things are true.

I don't think the Quietus 'forgot' to mention that horrible rant, they just didn't want to give it undeserved promotion. I need some mind-bleach after reading that.

Rudy- he is, having read the 'war in Europe' post, an equal opportunities moron in that he hates all the Abrahamic faiths. For him, biggest crime of christianity was to act as a conduit for Judaism to so read through Europe and his objection to Breivik's islamophobia is that, again, it plays into the hands of Jews. That's the common factor: he's an old fashioned anti Semite and nothing more.

Roman: having an 'effect' matters but you might as well argue ghat Gary glitter had an effect too. Doesn't justify anything

'Le Monde writes'...Great. Now I have to learn French. "The final solution to this problem is not to kill anyone, but to raise our children with French reading and writing ideals and values, and a French world view, and make sure that the ability to read French does not die out when our coward parent generation dies out."

Is that vile and anti Semitic enough for you? The writer didn't want to publish this scumbag's views as the explained.
