There is a special kind of madness abroad in Sweden, even more so than in Norway. The news report below is one of the best illustrations of Swedish lunacy I have ever seen.
Just think of it — the producers of the equivalent of “Sweden’s Most Wanted” not only pixelate the face of the wanted perpetrator, but they also disguise the enricher’s race by turning up the beige on his blurry face. Viewers are then supposed to use the video images to help police find the criminal.
To make matters worse, you’ll notice that the faces of law-abiding Caucasian Swedes are left untouched. That is, only the faces of wanted criminals are anonymized. Everyone else is there for all to see — “Hey! There’s Sven and Ingrid!”
Nothing is crazier than this. Those cultists who committed suicide so they could be transported onto alien spacecraft were saner than Swedish media moguls.
