Fjordman has some gloomy information about Sweden over at Brussels Journal today:
According to news site The Local, a judge who hears migration appeals had his house vandalized by left-wing extremists. Threats were sprayed on the walls, red paint was poured over the steps and an axe was left outside his home. “When a judge in a Swedish court has his home vandalised in this way, it is of course very serious,” said Ingvar Paulsson, head of the Gothenburg District Administrative Court . The group Antifascistisk Action (AFA) writes on its homepage that the attack was motivated by the situation of Iraqi asylum seekers. The Swedish Board of Migration has ruled that they should be deported if they cannot show that a threat exists against them personally.
It should be noted here that Sweden alone in 2006 accepted almost as many asylum applications from Iraqis as all other European countries did combined. Native Swedes, who live in a country that was one of the most ethnically homogeneous nations in the world only 30 years ago, will be a minority in their own country within a few decades, if current trends continue. Sweden is self-destructing at a pace that is probably unprecedented in history, but for the extreme Left, even this isn’t fast enough.

AFA openly brag about numerous attacks against persons who get their full name and address published on their website. According to them, this is done in order to fight against capitalist exploitation and for a global, classless society. Their logic goes something like this: If you protest against Muslim immigration, you suffer from Islamophobia, which is almost the same as xenophobia, which is almost the same as racism. And racists are almost Fascists and Nazis, as we all know, and they shouldn’t be allowed to voice their opinions in public. Hence, if you protest against being assaulted or raped by Muslims, you are evil and need to be silenced. If a native Swede is really lucky, he or she will thus first get mugged or battered by Muslims, and then beaten up a second time by his own extreme Leftists for objecting to being beaten the first time. The state does next to nothing to prevent either, of course. Native Swedes who object to a mass immigration that will render them a minority in their own country within a couple of generations have already been classified as “racists,” and racists are for all practical purposes outside of the protection of the law.
The wave of robberies the city of Malmö is experiencing is part of a “war against the Swedes.” This is the explanation given by young robbers from immigrant backgrounds. “When we are in the city and robbing we are waging a war, waging a war against the Swedes.” This argument was repeated several times. “Power for me means that the Swedes shall look at me, lie down on the ground and kiss my feet. We rob every single day, as often as we want to, whenever we want to.” Swedish authorities have done virtually nothing to stop this.
In a country where the tax rate is above 60%, higher than in almost any other country on the planet save perhaps North Korea – which incidentally also has almost as much free speech as Sweden – the natives are attacked on a daily basis by immigrant gangs, yet the state seems unwilling to do anything to stop this. Although Muslims openly brag about targeting Jews and Christians, this doesn’t constitute a hate crime. But is does constitute racism and a hate crime if Muslims are not presented with halal sausages at all times or allowed to wear a burka wherever they want to.
The British author Paul Weston believes that Britain’s national heart has ceased beating: “Our national soul is hovering indecisively above the operating table. The crash team have been called, but the politically inclined hospital switchboard have told them there is no problem, that everything is under control. The life support boys have heard otherwise, they are hurrying to get there, but other hospital staff members have switched the signage to the operating theatre and killed the lights. It is a big hospital, they only have minutes to get there, they are lost, confused, misinformed, and the clock is relentlessly ticking, and ticking, and ticking…”
I’m inclined to say the same thing about Sweden. The Swedish nation is currently on its deathbed. We can only hope there is life after death after all.
Go over to Brussels Journal for the rest of the details. But don’t expect to be cheered up by anything you find there.
Power abhors a vacuum.
Obviously Muslims will push with the State to enforce Sharia.
Ordinary Swedes, particularly property owners, those who speak only Swedish, or those unwilling to abandon their nation are “trapped.” Needing “rescue” by an armed force of men who will for a price that’s less than the Muslim overlords free them from Sharia subjugation.
Now where or where can that rescue be found? Hmmm ….
What we are looking at is a recipe for a rehash of the Thirty Year’s War.
Britain? Well the BNP is obviously rising to power. And now I understand the failure of Weimar. Offering elitist anti-National pap and feminized surrender to threats (in Weimar’s case, Communists, in Britain and Sweden’s case, Islam) didn’t have much appeal.
Of course people put their faith in the Freikorps. We don’t see Freikorps today but we do see Soccer Hooligans in Britain and the NPD in East Germany. Presumably the latter *will* at some point be called in the way Gustavus Adolphus, the Russians, the French, the Catholic League, and so on were called in during the Thirty Years War.
I wonder what the Defenestration will be?
I just don’t understand what has happened to Sweden, and not just in terms of dhimmitude, either. They have anti-gender discrimination laws and government policies that border absurdity, as well as cancerous political correctness.
They used to be the Vikings, for God’s sake.
Let that sink in for a moment.
Even in the 1600s they were led by Gustavus Adolphus and were on the cutting edge of military professionalism and tactics. In the 1700s, they were led by Charles XII, who only met defeat when he invaded Russia. Even in the 1800s they were fighting Napoleon.
However, by the 1940s they were maintaing a cozy neutrality with the Nazis, and now in the 2000s they are willingly assisting in their own supplanting on their own soil.
For the life of me, I just can’t find “the turning point” for Sweden in all of this.
Stephen, that neutrality wasn’t as cosy as you think. My wife’s grandmother used to eavesdrop on and decode nazi signals which were then passed on to the allies. Sweden maintained a non-aggression pact with Germany because they had no effective means to resist the german army. Their weapons were obsolete, their army was tiny and the majority of the people thought that the nazis were just another socialist party. They didn’t know about the camps or nazi policies toward ‘non aryans’ until jews started coming over the border from Norway.
The “turning point” you’re looking for is actually a result of that neutrality. The rising social democrats, flush with power and reverting from a genuine democratic movement in to classic socialism, latched on to Sweden’s ambivalence during the war, and the subsequent guilt, and used it as a stick to beat the general population in to submission as they implemented their socialist reforms. It only takes a single generation to change a culture if you try hard enough.
whiskey_199, the BNP are not “on the rise”. Like UKIP and the other minnows they did very poorly in the last local election, which saw a large shift toward the conservatives in many places, and a consolidation of labour voting in others. I expect they’ll do somewhat better in the next general election, but I don’t believe they’ll get any seats, and if things pan out as I think they’re going to with regard to the EU constitution and the tory pledge to hold a referendum, I think many people who might be tempted to vote BNP or another minnow will vote tory instead.
A good (now tragic) book about Sweden during WW II is “The Counterfeit Traitor” (a decent movie made of it, too).
As the character at the end of the filmed version says, when asked who his black arm-band is for:
“So many. So Many.“
Perhaps, now, all?
Speaking of Sweden and WWII:
In a book from last autumn, written by former editor of Expressen Staffan Thorsell, “Mein Lieber Reichkanzler”, it is explained how Sweden’s contemporary social-democratic government supported the Nazis’ invasion of Narvik in 14th of April, 1940. Train deliveries called “medical supplies” was in reality transport of German ammunition and soldiers.
And German soldiers got treatment in Norrbotten, Sweden, at the military hospital of Långträsk.
It’s a dark spot of our history, of which I am not proud…
Archonix there is politics, and there is POLITICS. That there is no Swedish Army and an overtaxed and minuscule Swedish Police forces means whoever can take and hold Sweden can rule it.
Will the NPD ever be a force in GERMAN politics? No. But it can be an expeditionary force to take and hold Sweden. Germans would be glad to be rid of all their East German young men who have no future and will make things uncomfortable at home. Swedes would like protection from Muslim domination. The Swedish government can issue declarations but without force to back it up is as useless as UN letters of severe regret.
As for Britain, the BNP is also unlikely to surge through in politics. But what will the Tories do? The same as Labor, only more so. Pro EU, pro-Muslim, anti-Native inhabitant. They are cut from the same elites after all. But John Bull with a shop or house he can’t sell, and no means to get to the US nor wish to see England die, will turn to someone to act as his street-fighting protector. What will the UK government do? They have also an overtaxed police force and have got rid of most of the military.
As a practical level if BNP-led street fights erupt to push Muslims back what will the Government do? Europe has a long history of street-fights becoming politics by other means. Not that I like this development or welcome it but I can see it.
This has a name – persecution – and has been practised for 1 400 years.
It actually, has several names – racism, and xenophobia, another two. Persecution comes in different forms, and the persecuted themselves are continuously accused of being racist, islamophobe, xenophobe and what not, to keep them occupied with feeling confusion and guilt, so the persecution can go on uninterrupted.
