"Hans Rustad, her boss, can be seen as the archetypal representative of the counter-jihad movement, that is dominated by embittered men in their 60s with little formal education, who become fanatically devoted to a single issue."

This line should be removed from the article. It doesn't belong in an article about Hanne. Secondly, it's just crass and an irrelevant attack on him as a person. --Slimy goop (talk) 21:15, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

To be fair, the whole article is a POS and should be deleted. --Slimy goop (talk) 21:19, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
We do Snark here. You are outvoted on that line in particular, as well as the article in general.---Mona- (talk) 21:27, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
But why does the line belong in this article? It's a duplicate of a line in the article on Hans Rustad, whose article is thoroughly linked to. --Slimy goop (talk) 21:31, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

For the record: This article was created by User:Aasimabood who copied certain parts of its content, including the sentence in question, from Hans Rustad's article. The sentence consists of an opinion (Rustad as the archetypal representative) and a sourced fact regarding the counter-jihad movement (mainly consisting of men in their 60s and above who become fanatically devoted to this cause). This is not a personal attack, but a straightforward analysis. I have no strong opinion on whether the sentence should be included here as well (in addition to Rustad's article).

Is the translation accurate? Doesn't it then need quotations marks? ---Mona- (talk) 22:43, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
It's not a direct quote, but instead an analysis combined with a more loosely worded summary of the main message in the newspaper article regarding the demographics of Islamophobes. The newspaper has used Alexa to analyse the readership of eight anti-Islam websites, finding a "clear pattern." The lead says that "The average reader of anti-Islam websites is a man above the age of 65, without children and with little education." Then there is an interview with Andreas Malm, author of a book called Hatet mot muslimer ("The hatred against muslims"), who says that "the typical profile for conspiracy theorists is older, lonely men who become obsessed with a single issue, and who can be drawn to anti-Islam conspiracy theories" and "there is a predominance [among readers of anti-Islam websites] of older men, often unemployed, who may feel ostracized from society, and who are seeking for an explanation [for their misfortune] and a scapegoat". And then anti-racist activist Tor Bach is interviewed, and says these men are "angry and frustrated people" and that "these people believe in all seriousness that there exists a conspiracy that the Arab world will take over the European." (Incidentally, Hans Rustad is exactly 65 years old this year). Millicent (talk) 00:41, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
