Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer sends a translation of an article about a recent enrichment incident in Sweden. The translator includes this note:
This brief article concerns the happy state of affairs in Modern Multicultural Sweden. It seems that members of the state-sponsored propaganda machinery, SVT, were culturally enriched by the very people they so vociferously defend.
It reminds me of a Norwegian joke:
Two Norwegian female social workers are walking in a park in Oslo. All of a sudden they come across a male robbery victim who has been knocked unconscious and is covered in blood. This causes one of the social workers to break down in tears.
“Oh no — think of the poor oppressed person who did this to that man!”
The translated article from Document.no:
Stockholm: TV news team from SVT [Swedish National Broadcasting Corporation] robbed at knifepoint
A TV journalist and a photographer from SVT were on an assignment in Rinkeby on the outskirts of Stockholm doing a story on the so-called “nystartszoner” (New Beginnings Zones) in deprived socioeconomic areas when they were threatened with a knife and had their camera and tripod taken away from them.
At approximately 1 pm two young men walked up to the SVT photographer and demanded that he hand over the camera. Simultaneously the photographer was shoved by the other assailant. When he turned around he noticed that the man who had just shoved him was holding a knife. The knife wielding assailant then proceeded to grab the camera and the tripod from the photographer before both robbers ran away.
The head of the news department of SVT, Mikael Hvinlund, is saddened by the incident. Rinkeby is a place where SVT wants to keep a visible presence.
“It is a shame that our team had to experience this. Rinkeby is an area where we want to keep a high profile,” says Hvinlund.
