Read his manifesto. It's all in there. I'm around a hundred pages in and have to say that while it's still batshit crazy overall it has more logical coherence and grasp of reality than almost all of the stuff I'm used to read from the far right (especially the Tea Party types). I.e. he advocates several (misogynistic) ways to increase the indigenous birth rate in Western Europe but acknowledges that those measures constitute a profound violation of human rights. By now I've come to the conclusion that only his actions set him apart from the generic right-winger and not necessarily his extremism.
On another note: He's used texts by "mainstream" Islam critics extensively. Of course they're all shocked now that something like this could've happened after decades of incitement against non-white immigration and try to dissassociate their works from his actions.
It's hard to say how much of the somewhat coherent stuff is his though. He's reported to have lifted a lot of stuff from both the Unabomber and some extreme right writer calling himself "Fjordman".
I'm also unsure how logically coherent it is to on one hand claim the people are oppressed by an elite of "cultural marxists", but that democracy as an option is out because "anti-immigration parties will likely never get more than 35% of the vote in elections". At best he's confusing the word elite with the word majority.
The diary has quite a different form from the other stuff, including a lot of smileys and LOLs.
From the description he gives of his family, he seems rather ashamed of them all, something that partly seems to stem from his earlier Muslim friend's view on how westerners (and their women) behave.
More so than intelligent he comes off as incredibly willing to grind to me. Sort of dumb, but dedicated.
