LN, our faithful reader from Sweden, wrote to us this morning. He has been complaining since Friday that I have been using the old Sverigedemokraterna logo and not the new one, most recently on Fjordman’s post. The two logos in question are shown below, the old one on the left and the new one on the right.
LN: I’ve fixed the problem. Check out Fjordman’s post and see if it meets with your approval now.
The above was just by way of explanation for part of LN’s email. He is responding to a comment by Zerosumgame on yesterday’s post:
Perhaps I should have asked this in one of the earlier Baron-Goes-to-Denmark threads, but I was wondering if the Danes knew of anyone of influence in Denmark that read this blog — maybe editors at Jyllands Posten or members of Parliament?
Here is LN’s response:
Or even somebody high up in the Norwegian or Swedish Power Elite, among the Press-Editors, among the Apparatchiks or in the Nomenklatura?
If so — and maybe — that is why there must not be any gaps or “weak spots” that these people — presumably our enemies — can get hung-up on — even like an old, provocative, since long abandoned, symbol for the Swedendemocrats. That is also why I have taken the immense freedom to criticize Dymphna a few times!
A few times I have edited a GoV article and emailed it to members of the Swedish Parliament. I think it is not enough just to send them links, they won’t click. But if they get something before their eyes that arouses curiosity, perhaps they will read it.
However, I do despair. The stupidity is so gross, the anxiety or dread for VIRUSES that are spread, that attachments as well as HTML-formatted text is looked upon as utterly dangerous — even our former stupid prime minister has said this openly, that he distrusts these new information-channels.
When I hear such things I must think about an old but thick novel written ca 1945 by one of old Sweden’s “labourwriters” (arbetarförfattare) — he was in his youth a house-to-house peddler — Ivar Lo-Johansson, and the novel was titled Geniet (the Genius) — about a teenaged, brilliant, misunderstood young man who in deepest despair at last cut off his “masculine apparatus” with a hedge scissors.
The great question remains — how to reach new readers, how to find proselytes??? I do think a direct traditional letter can get results — however each letter costs SEK 5.50…….

I once recommended a co-European-United-States-of-America letter-campaign aimed at ministers and high up lawmakers telling them “that now the 910-group was founded…”
Maybe some 50-100 addressees in countries like Denmark/Norway/Sweden. Affordable! — but forgotten, disappearing in the pink noise of smugness.
The Mohammedans, CAIR etc seem to understand this issue much better!
Are you writing only for the already delivered?
Haven’t you got a strategist among you?
