MusicThe Discovery Times Channel described Saga as a performer who "targets the mainstream by softening her image, while still maintaining her ideology." She has been described as the "Swedish Madonna of the far right." In the Discovery interview Saga said, "What makes me different is I think that I'm a lot more mainstream looking in that I'm very much toned down compared to the other ones.
It's not in your clothes.
It's not in the way you dress.
It's not in your appearance.
It's what's in your heart.
It's a lot easier for the mainstream public to see themselves in me, than to see themselves in a Skingirl." According to Saga, "Personal experiences has made me feel the way I do, and most people do have the same beliefs that I do.
It's a bad thing to be labeled a racist these days, and it's such a bad thing that people rather shut up than express what they feel.
I'm just trying to say that I don't want people that's not like me around me."Saga was featured on the front cover of the Fall 2000 edition of Resistance Magazine, a US Neo-Nazi publication.
Shaun Walker wrote the following at the website for the National Alliance, a US white power advocacy group: "...
just having her in front of the camera helps our Cause.
But, she also is quite good at interviews.
She comes across as the girl-next-door, who also understands the dynamics of racial conflict."Saga and her music were mentioned by Anders Behring Breivik in the compendium (or manifesto) that was e-mailed to 1,003 addresses about 90 minutes before he detonated a bomb in Oslo on July 22, 2011.[7\] He referred to her as "the world's best and most talented English speaking patriotic musician".[8\] In response to this Saga posted an official statement on her website condemning Breivik's actions, saying "It has come to my attention that my music has been cited ...
as going some way to inspiring one of the most vile and criminal acts in recent history.
I cannot begin to describe how saddened I am to hear that and wanted to inform you all of my shock and utter horror at such an atrocity.".[9\]In an interview with ethnomusicologist Benjamin Teitelbaum following Breivik's attacks, Saga added, "What I want is for people to listen to my music and go, ‘Oh, she feels the same.
I’m not alone.’ My music should be an option for normal people who feel that there is something wrong, but they don’t have to go out and get punched in the nose for it." [10\]
