Sweden: A New Hell for Women
by Fjordman

The very first essay I ever wrote under the pen name Fjordman, published at my then brand-new blog on February 20, 2005, was entitled “Muslim Rape Epidemic in Sweden and Norway — Authorities Look the Other Way.” I had been active on the Internet and written comments on other people’s websites well before that date, but in many ways this marked the beginning of my more dedicated writing career.

Over the years I have written quite a few essays about Sweden, despite never having lived there myself. One of the reasons for this is because it is by far the most extreme of the Nordic countries when it comes to mass immigration and Multiculturalism. In terms of ideological indoctrination, suppression of dissent and media censorship, I would argue that Sweden is one of the most totalitarian countries in the entire Western world. Outsiders don’t always realize how bad the situation really is.

Recent immigrants from certain repressive cultures have sometimes brought with them a number of unwelcome traditions from home, such as honor killings. These types of problems tend mainly to target women within the immigrant communities, although this does not make them any less regrettable. Yet there are plenty of problems and imported Multicultural tensions that cause suffering among the native population, too.

It’s not entirely coincidental that the first essay I wrote under the pseudonym Fjordman was about rape in Sweden. In no case is there a worse discrepancy between how Sweden likes to present itself to the world and how the country actually is than when it comes to the question of rape. Its carefully cultivated image as a champion of women’s rights runs counter to the real-life fact that Sweden is becoming a hell for many women.

I no longer write about this subject as often as I once did for the simple reason that I’m tired of it. It’s for the same reason that I sometimes write about science and astronomy whenever I’m fed up with Islam: you get tired of digging into darkness sometimes. Sadly, darkness doesn’t always go away just because you don’t want to talk about it.

The problem of rapes in Sweden is worse now than when I first wrote about it almost a decade ago. The 6,320 reported rapes officially registered in that country in 2012 almost certainly do not represent the full number of such crimes that actually took place that year. In 2880 of these registered rapes, the victims were minors and children aged between 0-17 years old. A surprising 10% of these victims of child rape in Sweden in 2012 were boys. The male percentage of rape victims is smaller for adults, but still higher than it used to be some time ago.

We know that many rape victims do not report the crime, perhaps partly due to shame and fear. If we assume that 25% of the rapes that are committed are reported to the police authorities, the total number of rapes in Sweden in 2012 would actually be over 25,000 rather than 6320, which was already bad enough. If we assume that just 10% of the committed rapes are actually reported and recorded, an estimate which some researchers operate with, the number of rapes in Sweden in 2012 alone would be a staggering 63,200.

If we use the lower of these two estimates, that amounts to roughly one hundred thousand rape victims in Sweden in just four years. If we use the higher — but still not totally unrealistic — estimate, that would make a quarter of a million Swedish rape victims within a four-year period, and one million in about sixteen years.

By any estimate, we are in all likelihood dealing with hundreds of thousands of rapes per generation, perhaps between half a million and one million. That’s an incredibly large number for a country with just over nine million inhabitants. It resembles war. Tens of thousands of these victims are children.

It is known that some particularly vulnerable victims are raped more than once. We should also recall that of the roughly 4,5 million females in Sweden, some are quite old and therefore statistically unlikely to be targeted by rape. This makes the percentage of young Swedish women being raped all the worse.

A report from 2011 showed a shocking rise in the number of consummated rapes against children under the age of 15. The number rose from a little over 200 in 1995 to about 1400 in 2008. The curve was then still rising. It is conceivable that some of this could be related to a change in the legal definition of rape, but the increase is so staggering that is highly likely to reflect a very real increase in the number of rapes in Swedish society.

The Danish author Morten Uhrskov Jensen looked into the official numbers and found that in the first seven months of 2013, Stockholm County alone registered 300 — three hundred — reported rapes of minors under the age of 15. That’s more than 500 a year, if the trend continues. This figure was for a single region only, not for the entire country.

Minors under the age of 15 are children by virtually any definition. Moreover, as mentioned previously we always have to take into account that not all such cases are reported. We are thus dealing with in all probability thousands of child rapes annually in Sweden, and by extension tens of thousands per decade.

As Morten Uhrskov Jensen stated, these figures are nothing less than horrific for what used to be a peaceful Scandinavian country. These victims are not just faceless numbers in a statistic; they are very real human beings. Many of them have their lives destroyed. In some cases, the victims have become so traumatized that they’ve taken their own lives. The families of the victims will also be affected by the trauma of such crimes.

One should keep in mind here that this comes on top of various types of sexual harassment and abuse that are not technically classified as rape. Besides, we have countless other cases of non-sexual abuse, assault, robberies, harassment and violence targeting people of both sexes on a regular basis. In combination, this generates an atmosphere of violence and fear.

There were rapes in this region before non-European mass immigration, of course, but not nearly as many as now. In addition to sheer numbers, the brutality has gotten worse, sometimes involving sadistic torture. Gang rapes used to be exceedingly rare in Scandinavia, but sadly, this is no longer the case. As we have just seen above, the number of rapes involving minors and children has also shown a shocking increase.

Rape of men, too, used to be uncommon in this part of the world. Not anymore. A 17-year-old boy reported being gang raped by several men in the town of Växjö in southern Sweden. In 2012, 132 men in Sweden reported being raped. Once more, we have to assume that quite a few people don’t file a report at all. The humiliation, shame and stigma attached to being a male rape victim are presumably at least as strong as for female victims.

The Swedish mass media and political elites are very careful not to suggest any connection between these rapes and mass immigration from Third World countries. Yet there is every reason to suspect that such a connection exists. We know from other Western European countries that immigrants from certain regions and cultures, particularly from the Islamic world and Africa, are disproportionately represented as perpetrators in rape cases.

In Britain, especially in English cities, a disturbing number of cases have been revealed in which Muslim men prey on girls, some of them as young as ten years old, drug them and sexually abuse them. Most of their young victims are native white girls, but occasionally they will even prey on non-Muslim girls from other immigrant communities. British authorities have been shamefully slow and hesitant in dealing with these widespread child rapes. Yet at the very least, some British newspapers and magazines will occasionally write about this subject in plain words. In Sweden, the media systematically sweep the ethnic identity of such criminals under the rug.

In 2005, the ethnologist Maria Bäckman in her study “Whiteness and gender” followed a group of ethnic Swedish girls in the suburb of Rinkeby near Stockholm. Natives there are now a minority of the inhabitants due to mass immigration. Several natural blondes stated that they had dyed their hair to avoid unwanted attention and sexual harassment. Being called “whore” is so common for white girls in certain schools that teachers no longer react to this. The problem certainly hasn’t become smaller in the years that have passed since this study.

A report from 2006 detailed how being a Swedish girl or young woman increasingly means feeling unsafe in your own country. They are scared of being raped, a possibility that appears very real to them. Many are planning how to go home at night, how to defend themselves or how to run all the way home if they have to.

It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an Arab girl,” says Hamid, in an interview about a gang rape involving immigrant perps. “The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and she had probably f***ed before, anyway. But the Arab girl will get problems with her family. For her, being raped is a source of shame.” He claims that it is “far too easy to get a Swedish whore…… girl, I mean.” Hamid laughed over his own choice of words. “I don’t have too much respect for Swedish girls. I guess you can say they get f***ed to pieces.”

Not only the victims but also the perpetrators get younger and younger. Official statistics in 2013 showed that the number of rapes committed by minors under the age of eighteen was eight — 8 — times higher than in 1998. Young people of unspecified ethnic origins are more and more often suspected of committing serious and violent crimes, according to a compilation of figures from Statistics Sweden and the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention. Compared to the late 1990s, young people are now the suspects in twice as many robberies. The number of drug crimes in which young people are suspects has quintupled. The number of rape cases in which young people are suspects has more than octupled. No proper explanation was given for this increase.

Suggesting that the ongoing rise in violent crime might have something to do with mass immigration of alien and aggressive cultures is quite literally banned by law. In March 2007 during a rally supported by SSU, the Social Democratic Youth League, a man carried a sign reading, “While Swedish girls are being gang raped by immigrant gangs the SSU is fighting racism.” He was promptly arrested and later sentenced to a fine. His crime? He had “expressed disrespect for a group of people with reference to their national or ethnic background.” The local court rejected the man’s free speech argument because even free speech has its limits, and he had clearly acted in too provocative a manner.

While the rape numbers are horrific, they make up just one element of the spread of violent crime. Sweden used to be a safe country not so many decades ago. Yet Swedish streets are now plagued by muggings, shootings, robberies, gang rivalries and mafias on a scale previously unknown in modern Scandinavian history.

In late August 2013, after an alleged attack on a veiled Muslim woman, a grassroots movement defending women’s right to wear hijab (veil) was backed by many politicians and celebrities in Sweden. Left-wing politicians were among those who lent their support to the movement, dubbed “The hijab appeal,” by posting pictures of themselves wearing the Islamic headscarf.

It was later claimed that the pregnant woman who was allegedly attacked previously was attacked a second time. She was reportedly assaulted in southern Stockholm by several men who attacked her with punches and told her to withdraw her police report.

If this really is true then this is highly unusual behavior for native Swedes. It is, however, not unusual for people from certain authoritarian immigrant communities to threaten witnesses in such a manner. This raises the question of whether this Muslim woman was actually attacked by men from the immigrant community, possibly even her own relatives.

Yet the biased and totalitarian Swedish mass media would hear none of this. They reacted, based on weak evidence from a strange story, with a campaign against an alleged wave of Islamophobic “hate” in Sweden, one of the most politically correct countries on the surface of this planet.

As the author Bruce Bawer commented at the time in FrontPage Magazine: “Now, if this actually happened, it’s repugnant. But there’s no evidence that it did happen — no eyewitnesses, no surveillance video — and it’s been suggested (although not, of course, in the Swedish media) that the woman’s story could be entirely bogus. In any case, it’s a man-bites-dog tale if there ever was one: Sweden is overrun with Muslim men who rape infidel women, not with infidels who pull headscarves off Muslim women.”


In late August 2013, at the exact same time as prominent non-Muslim Swedish women were donning the veil to show “solidarity” with Muslims, seven Afghan Muslim asylum seekers were convicted of brutally gang-raping a Swedish woman in the small town of Mariannelund. Another man who masturbated next to the woman’s head while the other seven were raping her for hours was acquitted, though. He received 130,000 kroner in damages for his ordeal. This was sponsored by Swedish taxpayers, presumably including the family of his victim.

Because of such examples, the writer Eva Agnete Selsing in Denmark has come to the conclusion that “Sweden is the Evil Empire.” She was referring to a new kind of totalitarianism and Utopian ideology of open borders.

The phrase “the Evil Empire” was applied to the Communist dictatorship of the Soviet Union in 1983 by the conservative U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Reagan honestly felt that he had no choice but to define the Communist system as evil, due to its repressive nature and the huge amount of human suffering it caused.

Is that comparison to Sweden hyperbole? Maybe, maybe not. Selsing was not arguing that this new form of Multicultural totalitarianism was as militant and violent as some of the earlier totalitarian movements, but that doesn’t mean that it is not harmful or dangerous. In her view, the explosive cocktail of extreme political correctness and rampant mass immigration is creating a “catastrophe” in Swedish society. The ruthless authoritarian suppression of dissent upheld by the ruling elites and the media establishment has transformed Sweden into something approaching a “prison of the mind.”

One of the most horrific examples is the country’s rape statistics, which are the worst in Europe. Parallel to mass immigration from Third World countries, the number of recorded rapes, also of children, has exploded. Eva Agnete Selsing wonders how the “hypocritical” Swedish political and media elites can sleep at night, knowing fully well what kind of nightmare of violence and street crime they are pushing on their own people. Her conclusion is that “If your actions lead to violence, abuse, threats, repression and social control of your fellow citizens (who have never sought the reality that you have put them in), and you refuse to relate to this, then you are an evil person. And the evil empire consists of human beings.”

Perhaps Swedish authorities should worry more about the incredibly large number of rapes in their own country, and less about transsexuals in Serbia or gay adoption rights in Russia.

      • Running away to some tiny god-forgotten off-the-map predominantly christian country in South America?

        There is nothing that can be “done” for Sweden any more. For all intents and purposes, it is a failed state now, which can not be reverted to its pre-marxist state without a massive civil war type conflict and subsequent abolition of democracy.

        And even if such a conflict arose, the people fighting it would have to ask themselves what and especially whom they are fighting for?

        Half of the ethnic Swedes who are targetted by Muslims now are precisely the marxists that caused this mess in the first place and would probably cause it again in future for the same reasons.

        I can not imagin that any patriotic Swede mourning the loss of his country would and should be willing to fight and sacrifice for the marxist traitors.

        So my suggestion of what can be “done” is to organize with other patriotic swedes and collectively jump ship to South America and let the Muslims take over Sweden and eat/rape the Marxists alive.

        It is like in a real life zombie movie. After a certain point, fighting them off becomes futile and all you can do is to shoot the other guy who betrayed you in the leg and run for your life.

        The sooner and the more spectacularly Sweden goes down, the better cautionary tale will it be for other countries which still might have a chance to reverse the course.

        • Wrong. They are a genetic and cultural reserve. Whomever got their hooks into Scandinavia and created this situation needs to be outed. They had no history of Empire in the ME or Asia and thus the trail to the guilty will be fresher and clearer.

        • That would be Australia. They don’t put up with the Islamic crap. It’s previous two leftist prime ministers told them if they don’t like our laws to go home. A moronic Islamic protester who kicked a police dog and pushed a female police officer got 4 years 3 months in jail. A Lebanese muslim teenager got 56 years for leading a gang of rapists and can not get parole until at least 2036. Subsequently the morons feel the full force of the law in the land down under. Europe needs to get tough now!

          • Sad to see now our liberal community leaders turning a blind eye to islamic racism. Its why so many are fed up with them. JFK would be sad to see so many blue dog democrats being hijacked by left wing extremists crying fowl everytime we try to stop mass islamic immigration.

        • I do not speak English, so excuse the errors of agreement and spelling. I am Brazilian. It would be funny if it were not tragic to see native country much more developed than Brazil, dreaming of living in South America. I suspect that the Islamization of South America here easily happen in the future, because of the characteristics of the population as a lack of appreciation for democratic values, disrespect life and human rights, violence, corruption, sexual immaturity, and especially religiosity of the population and chronic leftism, finally, a low level of civility in general. Still the problem Muslims here should take a few decades to begin to manifest. So welcome if they want to come, I suggest Chile or inner cities of the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná, Santa Catarina in Brazil. There are still small towns formed by descendants of Italians, Germans and other people who are calm and safe in southern Brazil. The first world does not help people in the third world committing cultural suicide, is turning into third world too. Developed countries are strong and help it grow into reference and support positive initiatives in developing countries such as birth control and market economy. It is very sad to monitor the cultures that have enriched my life who taught me about the beauty, politeness, sense of humor, a meritocracy. How can so passively accept?

    • In this article there is no factual link between rape and migration of Muslims. rape statistics are given. No statistics for migrant men raping are given. rapes also increase in all societies which are economically struggling. Are white swedish men more likely to rape now? Can we link this with inflation in the price of foods? Both graphs would be identically going up! fjordmann seems to be creating a link without statistical facts and giving the impression that rapes are an exclusive migrant habit. obviously this is not true and that is the same type of racism created by far right against blacks in usa and now in Europe. The real problem with far right is that they have nothing except hate to preach. They don’t stand for anything positive but stand against something positive.

      • You don’t have to be “any” right to see what islam is.
        A lame system empowering stupid men over the weak. They don’t understand any thing about being a proud male and to respect woman who was made by the same God.
        All muslim men are the same… Religious Nazis

      • Mypoint you obviously are in denial of reality yourself. There is enough evidence to form a correlation between the increase of rapes and foreign immigration just as there is enough evidence to prove reverse bigotry that Muslims impose on their host countries. You are trying to propose a correlation between the increase of the price of food and rape? I think you ought to go back to elementary school with the rest of your leftest friends. By the way where can you prove the far right is racist against blacks in America? You make statements that are just your poor little opinion which means nothing to the rest of us.

  2. Good points.

    You see you Scandinavians are so bloody nice and so deferential. The whole mess is vexing. It reminds me of that [spurious] book Dragon Tattoo…yah sure secret neo nazi industrialists are raping immigrant women! Yah, that’s the cause of the rape stats.

    Hej Hej!

  3. Fjordman,

    Have you written a critique of the popular Girl With The Dragon Tattoo? The spate of PC crime novels from Sweden seem to me to be part of a brainwashing program to deflect attention away from real criminality to toward a
    Comfortable fantasy about comic book villains.

  4. Just in case you think I don’t care, I care very much. But, what’s to do about a culture that is willing to put their women on the line? I can’t see a way out of this Sweeden until you say that you will fight in the streets to protect your women.
    Now, much has been said of the feminenization of men in Sweeden. And to that I would agree. Why should men protect women in a culture that demeans men?
    So while the elites, far removed from the aspects of uncontrolled immigration, continue to dictate how the average Swede must live, continue to live in relative security, the rest of the population must suffer from their insistance.
    Like I said, I have no answer other than to dye your hair brown if you are an indiginous Swede.
    It is very sad but true that Sweeden no longer has the best intentions for its indiginous population. That is why I say there is nothing to be done here…

    • Most of the problem is the deferential women in Sweden, Denmark, Norway. Women sound shocked if you say anything remotely racist or bigoted. Men just stay the hell clear of the verbal conflict with their girlfriends. My Danish friend in Copenhagen called Heidi: her dad had a tooth knocked out by a group of Lebanese some place in Jylland. He reckons that Middle Easterners are Apes–literally. He’s got a very entertaining theory on the origin of the species. Guess what Heidi still sympathizes with the Muslims in a general sense and is shocked by the things I say (which are no where near as bad as her dad’s opinions). Sometimes women just don’t get it. Many will only learn the hard way unfortunately.

      Men see it as sorta shameful if they lose their cool.

      • Alot of these women are where these foolish ideas of tolerance, peace and love and all that baloney are coming from. It’s not something men came up with, it’s too foolish, but they are going along with it and they shouldn’t be.

        Women and to a lesser degree men, made this mess and they can unmake it.

      • Talking of women not getting it, there are 100,000 Muslim converts in the UK (according to the 2011 census). 66% of them are women. This seems to confirm what a variety of manosphere bloggers have concluded; that a number of women just like being dominated by thugs.

    • To contribute to the explanation of the development of the Swedish society, in November 2011, I recorded a video with the title “Institutional violence against children in Sweden during recent decades”. The video is to be found at vimeo.com.

      • To contribute to the explanation of the development of the Swedish society, in November 2011, I recorded a video with the title “Institutional violence against children in Sweden during recent decades”. Since March 2013, the video is to be found at vimeo.com.

    • There are people who always criticize the United States about there gun laws, but this is a good example of why other countries should be more like them. This type of behaviour in the U.S. Would lead to more street justice. I don’t understand how this is not being reacted on more violently by the Swedish male family members. If someone was willing to rape my family member in the same manner that has been going on in Sweden I would expect gun sales and gun use to go up.

  5. No linkage whatsoever has been demonstrated between the increased incidence of rape in Sweden and mass immigration from Muslim countries. Pure speculation. The two phenomenon just co-exist in time with no causal relationship between them. Perhaps native Swedish men have just become more sexually aggressive over the past few decades due to the pornography Sweden has long been famous for and Swedish jails being too comfortable to act as a deterrent to such behaviour. Or it is due to the hormones in battery-raised chickens or consuming genetically modified food. It cannot be that people from different cultures possess different sexual mores and predilection for engaging in violence.

    In Australia there have been some instances of Muslim gang rapes of non-Muslim girls, but this was cogently and persuasively explained by the Grand Mufti of Australia as being the girls’ fault for wearing provocative clothing. He used the following very sensible (neigh, sensitive) and apposite analogy: if one leaves a plate of uncovered meat out in the open and a cat comes along and eats it, whose fault is that? The cat’s or the person who left the uncovered meat out? The man is a paragon of unparalleled ethical calibre and a credit to his followers.

    I’m gratified to see that the above point of view has been heartily embraced by a number of feminist Scandinavian academics. Similarly there have been a number of instances of Muslim taxi drivers raping female passengers who were intoxicated. Again this is said to be the fault of the female passengers for drinking alcohol and not being accompanied by their husband or a male relative. Who could disagree with that?

    It is on the issue of the rape of males where Fjordman’s thesis falls down completely. The Koran prohibits homosexual sex absolutely. And as anyone who has travelled to a Muslim country will attest there are no gay bars or porno shops or the like. Which strongly suggests there are no gay men in Muslim societies. So, therefore, by extension, it is quite logical to conclude that men do not have sex with men in Muslim countries. The corollary of this must be that all the homosexual rape of males taking place in Sweden is perpetrated by native Swedes, not by immigrants from Muslim countries.

    Yes, I grant you, men in Muslim countries do hold hands in public a lot, rather strikingly ubiquitous in fact, but that’s just a cultural difference. Nothing sexual in it at all, as the locals are very keen to impress upon you. And yes they do make sexually suggestive remarks to Western male tourists and do things like grab their buttocks, but that’s just their way of registering their disapproval of men wearing revealing shorts in public.

    My late father (a Saidian “Orientalist” if ever there was one) told me of a scene he encountered in an Istanbul open-air market in the 1950’s: a line of six pre-pubescent boys were seated, impaled, along a bench of eight greased wooden pegs waiting for customers. One selected the boy who appealed and then negotiated the price of his services with the pimp who stood over the boys (carrying a cane) and sidled off into a little shelter behind the bench. I’ve no doubt that this rather disturbing phenomenon was entirely due to the C20th secularization of Turkey and the pernicious influence of the West; certainly it would have had nothing to do with the cultural and sexual norms of an Islamic society.

    One could argue back and forth on the subject of explaining the reasons for the exponential growth in the rape rate in Sweden with people like Fjordman, but I’m sure my assessment that it has nothing to do with the Muslim population would be vindicated if the Swedish bureaucracy, in its compilation of the statistics of sexual crimes and other criminality, included the religion and/or place of birth/ethnic origins of the perpetrators. I sincerely wish it does do so just to prove the querulous Fjordman wrong once and for all.

    I for one would be fascinated to learn the comparative levels of criminality, especially that involving violence, in the Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish and Sikh population in Sweden. Comparing such to that of Lutherans, Mormons, Muslims and Wikkans. I’ll bet those Buddhists and Sikhs are right up there with the Mormons when it comes to rape, drug dealing, robbery and assault.

    Perhaps there should be an organised public agitation in Sweden for the official inclusion of such ethnic origin/place of birth/religion in the criminal conviction statistics; surely that could not of itself be a hate crime? Or a thought crime.

    Alternatively (if the above suggestion gains no traction), given the entrenched and virulent hostility to Jews, pardon me “Zionists”, in Sweden, the statistics gathering exercise could be dressed up as one setting out to prove the prevalence of criminality in the “Zionist” population in Sweden. That would surely have cross-party support in the Swedish political establishment and be hugely popular with the academy as well as the general public, especially in Malmo. Over to you Swedes.

    • “No linkage whatsoever has been demonstrated between the increased incidence of rape in Sweden and mass immigration from Muslim countries. ”
      Yea right just like no linkage between Muslim immigration and pedophile rape gangs in the UK or pimp enslavement gangs in Holland,of course not,put your head back in the sand.

    • I have to say that was the most wonderful sarcasm I have ever come across, and funny enough close to what the looney left may actually think.

      • Thank you. In my experience what happens with Leftists is that they develop an ideological weltanschauung and NOTHING is thereafter ever permitted by them to alter the prism through which they view the world. No facts, no observations, no personal experience can cause them to question their “model”.

        In rare cases what happens is that the sheer weight of the countervailing facts finally impinges upon their understanding, but their private beliefs no longer have any connection with the public rhetoric they continue to espouse. They simply don’t have the personal courage to acknowledge that they were wrong; also they know they will lose friends and suffer professional setbacks.

        At a work dinner party in 1993 (!) I spent much of the evening in intense, sometimes heated, debate with the actor-film director partner of a secretary. A very well known public figure of great personal charm and humour, he took an unflinchingly illogical PC position on every issue.

        The next morning his partner told me that he said to her at the end of the night, apropos our debate: “Oh I completely agree with his views. But if I ever said so publicly I’d never get any work in this city again.” I suspect there’s a great deal of that about, especially in the media.

        By coincidence that very same secretary later, briefly, dated a Bosnian Muslim man. One of my colleagues noted his presence in the office reception the first time he visited her in the workplace and asked him why he was there. Said colleague immediately called the secretary into his office and with genuine concern strongly advised her to have nothing to do with such men; given his own extensive professional experience with Muslim clients. She, being in her mid 40’s, laughed him off as a jaded bigot: “Don’t be ridiculous … he’s a perfect gentlemen” Within two weeks she was being stalked and harassed to the point she had to enlist police help.

        • My experience of the same phenomenon is different. I do not see that the the couple of hundreds of Progs I have known on a personal basis in several countries are hypocrites who believe one thing and say and do another. To the contrary, they continue in their fanciful beliefs — a religious creed, really — despite all sensory and factual evidence to the contrary. It’s one of the few possible ways for resolving cognitive disonance, and the more frequent one at that.

          Lawrence Auster, RIP, had a sharp analytical mind that latched onto this phenomenon, He coined “Auster’s law of minority-majority relations” that said (more or less): The worse the offenses of minorities living in Western societies the more we proclaim their essential goodness and beat ourselves for our racism that causes them to stray from that essential goodness.

          There is also the matter of personal arrogance. Progressivism is a disease contracted largely in institutions of higher learning. Even though a modern-day BA is barely the intellectual equivalent of a pre-WW II high school diploma, having that piece of parchment bolstered by all the unwarranted “self-esteem” that’s packed into morons’ heads in the K-12 stage makes one immune to re-examination of one’s core beliefs as well as full of contempt for the “uneducated” blue collar/ working class who happen to have a much more intelligent and true perception of life and society.

          • There is much to be said for that thesis. Entry requirements for tertiary education get lower and lower, the level of academic rigour required to complete a degree gets lower and lower, yet paradoxically those that emerge with their “Mickey Mouse” BAs look down their noses at those without tertiary education more disdainfully than the patricians of ancient Rome did at the plebeians. In crude terms they are so stupid that they believe that what they are taught at progressive institutions sets them apart from the great unwashed.

            In the early 1980’s I became acquainted with a young American woman who was majoring in Economics in her BA degree at what was then known as a “country club” college in Florida, ie a place where rich parents sent their dumb offspring for an undemanding four years of college at the end of which you graduated. I showed her the standard economics textbook that I had studied in high school, authored by a man called Samuelson. She looked stunned: at her college one studied Samuelson only in the fourth year of college!

            The great Harry S Truman was consistently derided as the haberdasher from Kansas City; that Truman never went to college was consistently thrown at him. I believe he was the most recent US President to have not obtained a tertiary education. Yet he was extremely well read; literate well beyond the level of today’s holder of an undergraduate degree. His common sense and innate wisdom contributed to a presidential legacy that is only now starting to be fully appreciated.

            One of the marvellous attributes of Mark Steyn is that he does not have a tertiary education, yet he is demonstrably exceptionally intelligent and, more importantly, writes beautifully and speaks eloquently. The standard anti-Steyn piece usually commences with a snide reference to his lack of a tertiary education and his first job as a disc jockey.

        • You are absolutely right about the media and in fact the top strata of polite society, I have seen similar things myself.

          And that secretary was mugged by her own personal experience.

          My wife works for a major French company, she has a number of Muslim co-workers, one of which wears a headscarf but defines herself as moderate in terms of comparing herself to her husbands sisters who wear the full hijab and watch nothing bu Al Jezera all day. Anyway she was complaining about feeling tired (just went back on full time and was pregnent again to get max benefits by the way) and she started going on that it was Ramadan and that she could not drink or eat. My wife looked her in the eye and said that is your choice, she looked straight back to my wife and said, we will see how you like it when you have to do it! My wife of course knows the score, but even she was slightly taken aback by it.

          I have some familly members on my wife side who vote socialist all the time, yet are forever doing things on the black, one day I said to the man, aren’t you a hyprocite and he said your only jealous because you cannot do it… And this guy thinks I am racist for having an issue with Islam, though recently I have noted signs that his wife has started to get it, based on a Muslim friend who had become devout after a divorce with a French woman and said that he wanted nothing to do with them anymore… the penny dropped with her at that point because I had mentioned what happened when a Muslim has an attack of devoutness.

          The funny thing is that they are looking more and more ridiculous as reality keeps rearing its ugly head again and again and with more intensity, its only a question of time before they are unable to fool even themsleves.

    • Thank God you’re sarcastic, otherwise I would have to beat you on the head with a carrot 🙂

  6. The SWEDIST government rapes its own women AND MEN by over looking the fact that SOMEBODY else has the run of the place and rapes all they can …. everyday….any day …or night.

    What kind of government is that? An ABUSIVE and mentally ill one.

  8. On the surface it looks like these people would rather be raped or even die rather than admit that their religion–the religion of PC multiculturalism–is a sham.

    We know the views of the elite–the academy, the mainstream media, the educators, the affluent who are safe in their safe enclaves. But I cannot help but think that there must be some grumbling under the surface among some. I have nothing concrete upon which to base this speculation.

    I remember talking with a Swede (who lived in a high end real estate area near Malmo) 25 years ago who complained about seeing the immigrants sitting idle all day in the coffee houses. He maintained that other Swedes were upset about this as well although they didn’t speak about it. If this was really the case 25 years ago, then it must be occurring today as well–unless the constant indoctrination in the schools and media have wiped out any resistance among the indigenous Swedes.


  10. Thank you for an excellent article! You forgot to mention that BRÅ, The Swedish Council for Crime Prevention, claims that one in four women in Sweden will be raped during her lifetime.
    25%. Staggering number.

  11. “Ban Islam in Sweden and deport those who persist in believing in the religion”. The leader of the Swedish Democrats is now advocating the policy I have been advocating for 2 years. http://www.onislam.net/english/news/europe/458777-sweden-far-right-calls-for-banning-islam.html

    It is the quickest and simplest solution. And time is running out. Once muslims get to 20% of the population, it will not be a feasible option.

    In 1960, the muslims in Algeria said to the jews and christians “choose the suitcase or the coffin”, then extracted large fines from those who chose the suitcase and left. Within 2 years, the 8% of the population who were not muslims were gone. Search for reports, analysis, condemnation of this event on the internet, and it is slim pickings indeed.

    We have no choice but to adopt the same policy. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us.

    • > It is the quickest and simplest solution.

      No, it isnt. It would lead to a massive civil war, since you already have more than a million Muslims you would have to forcibly get rid off _AND_ you would have to fight off all the crazy marxists, who account for about 50% of ethnic swedes.

      > Once muslims get to 20% of the population, it will not be a feasible option.

      It already is not feasible, since Muslims + Muslim enablers already comprise more than the 20%.

      Remember, this is not about ethnic swedes Vs the evil Muslims. It is conservative swedes Vs marxist swedes + Muslims which marxist swedes brought in to help their marxist cause.

  12. Julius O’Malley you remind me of western “Arabist” diplomats who whore their girls to local Arabs under the guise of “dating” or being “multicultural” etc. [Insulting text redacted]

  13. Unlike five, ten or twenty years ago, the waiting is almost over. I imagine the fruits of our self mutilation by muslim labor will be breaking out all over very soon. Hopefully we will have enough resources out of denial mode.

  14. Imagine how much brainwashing it would take to convince the Japanese to flood Japan with NON-Japanese until they themselves become a minority
    To convince them to force affirmative action AGAINST THEMSELVES with all those NON-Japanese
    That this “diversity” is a strength
    And to convince them that it would be “racist” to NOT do this to themselves
    No need convincing WHITE anti-whites of this in EVERY white country, they’re already convinced!
    Anti-Racist is a code for Anti-White

  19. I first visited Sweden and Denmark in 1968 as a young American soldier in Germany. I fell in love with them and for years wanted to learn a Scandinavian language. While in Washington in the 1990s, I attended the local Saturday Swedish school for two years and last visited Sweden in 1995. How things have changed.

    Today my Swedish is weak and used primarily used for reading the depressing news on Swedish blogs like Jihad i Malmo. Now I wonder why I even bothered to learn it.

  20. Yes. How depressing. But every revolution begins with just one person…

    The other night I was sitting at the table just by the fireplace opposite the bar with a fine pint of ale within easy reach when the lady opposite lay into the state of the nation – in this case England. She had a very poor impression of the contribution mass third world immigration has made to the state of the nation and concluded with “…things can only get worse.”

    This would have been unthinkable not too long ago – I’m talking about a woman publicly voicing political opinions, not me sitting by the bar with pint in hand. Things have changed so radically so quickly in England that people are finding it hard not to express their concerns for the future. A good thing come out of a bad thing.

  21. Dear Fjordman. I can well understand how you get fed up writing about the same things day after day, week after week, year after wear. I certainly get fed up with reading about them, but report you must, and read we must, because when we have all had enough and want to close up and ignore it all, then we are well and truly finished. Plenty of good men have given up on what must be at times a very frustrating occupation. I am always very thankful that Vlad Tepes daily reports on the car bombings in Iraq, just that someone, somewhere cares what an awful continuing nightmare we have inflicted on the people of that country, it would be very easy to accept that continuing horror as the new normal, and accept it as nothing out of the ordinary.
    We owe great vote of thanks to people like yourself, the baron (and Dymphna) Vlad,and many others all around europe and the world who continue to keep us informed when it must, at times, feel like an utterly futile and repetitive task.
    Thank you and God bless you all.

  22. The whole PC ideology is based on the idea of white privilege. Let us ask: does the Bonnier family have white privilege? Does Robert Aschberg have white privilege? Does Caroline Szyber have white privilege?

    Ask these questions, ask these questions, ask these questions, and remind them of eternal damnation…

  23. In the year 2000 my boxing partner was a swede. Sweden was already well on its way to becoming a matriarchy. He said Swedish women tell men that “You can have my heart, but not my [redacted] body!” Meaning women want the power never to commit to one man. Of course once women turn 40 they become invisabl Women and the state cooperate to keep Swedish men powerless

    • If women “become invisible” after the age of 40, that means they have about three or four decades to build up a whole lot of anger at being non-people.

      Sounds like both sides need an attitude adjustment.

      Men are not made powerless by women; both parties have much to offer and much to withhold in their transactions. Based on your description the culture itself has been corrupted from the inside…

  24. Like one previous poster wrote about what the Algerians offered to Christians and Jews “the suitcase or the coffin”.

    We need to do the same with Muslims here in the West. I know such a opinion isn’t very popular among the anti-jihad movement folks but it’s the only real way of dealing with them and their foul faith.

    I don’t know what it will take to convince Westerners, most seem totally oblivious the West’s history with Islam. Even supposedly devout Christians couldn’t care less about Muslim persecution of Christians. Maybe it’s a combination of being fat, dumb and blissfully ignorant along with a nice dose of PC/MC that seems to permeate much of Western contemporary thinking.

  25. Swedish men who will cower and remain silent while their own daughters are abused and raped are not ‘men’ by any stretch of the imagination.

    • They neutered their own men and it’s coming full circle. Women have become increasingly abhorrent in the last 40-50 years. This is the fulfillment of the wise prediction by a famous British monarch in 1871. But that was just..ya know..old nonsense that could never happen and stuff…

  26. Perhaps the ladies like the new manly men that they have imported, to replace their flacid feminized local stock.

    • That’s what Hitlers admirers were thinking. Here we go again. Maybe the muslims will succeed in uniting the world in ways so devastating for them that their screams for a “califate” (sic) they may find was another misunderstanding of what mo said. He must have said “calamity”. In closing. Be aware that women in the west are empowered politically and otherwise and can choose to visit massive damage on the cowardly miscreant gang banger renegade cult of Islam.

  27. I dont see any movement of women’s voting patterns. This must not be a big issue for them. Dying their hair black and limiting their movement, altering their behavior seems to be fine with them.

  28. Just for information:

    BRÅ is not the migration board but the:

    “The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) functions as the Swedish Government’s body of expertise within the judical system.”

    On their own website it says:

    As few as 10-20 percent of all sexual offences are reported to the police.
    Of those who are suspected for sexual offences, the majority are men and only about two percent are women. A majority of the victims are women. In a third of reported rapes, the victim is younger than 15.


    So this basically means Sweden’s real rape statistics are astronomical. And they became astronomical after immigration as BRA’s own statistics show. That is, muslim immigration. Sweden’s problems are like the rest of Europe. It’s not an immigration problem as much as it is a muslim immigration problem.

    • Perhaps that ‘problem’ could be further refined into a belief problem of the elites who not only permitted this to happen but encouraged it. There are none so narrow-minded as the suicidally tolerant who pride themselves in their faith that *they* are not prejudiced. IOW, they swallowed the Marxist socialist Great Lies.

      They want the hoi polloi to live out this fantasy they have, but in no way do they plan to exist cheek-by-jowl with the immigrants they’ve foisted off on their countrymen. They might be willing to hire them for menial services, but that’s as close as they’ll get to immigrants.

  36. The Swedish government and all the democratic governments of the world need to stop bringing Muslims into the free countries. Those evil Muslims are destroying the world. Deport all the Muslims!!!!

    • Same thing goes for Australia. Masses of illegals have made their way here in boats – people trafficking is lucrative. Now, with a conservative government (voted in in Sept.) trying to clean up the mess caused by the Labor/Green (Marxist) Parties open door attitude there is a slow down, thank God. In the same vein of the article about rape in Sweden: I was told by reliable source that young Muslim boys from same boats were presenting in the health clinic in processing centres with sexual diseases in their mouths. The reason given: Women are for having babies and boys are for sexual amusement. A filthy inhuman and uncivilized religion….and they aim to dominate the world? Time for Our Lord to return.

  37. A 25% rape reporting rate is far too high. A University of Uppsala report from 2003 suggests the rape reporting rate for women was about eight percent, for men four percent, and boys essentially zero.

    A personal conversation suggests the rates are in decline as the social costs of reporting a rape by a “rat,” as foreigners are often called, is very great


  38. In this article there is no factual link between rape and migration of Muslims. rape statistics are given. No statistics for migrant men raping are given. historically rapes also increase in all societies which are economically struggling. Are white swedish men more likely to rape now? Can we link this with inflation in the price of foods? Both graphs would be identically going up! so much for graphs. fjordmann seems to be creating a false pseudo scientific link without statistical facts and giving the impression that rapes are an exclusive migrant habit. There is no evidence. obviously his or her assertion is not true and that is the same type of racism created by far right against blacks in usa and now in Europe. The real problem with far right is that they have nothing except hate to preach. They don’t stand for anything positive but stand against something positive. real problem is that most far right men are uneducated untravelled unsophisticated xenophobic
    racist white supremacists whose up bringing and personal lives are miserable. They drink too much alcohol and have nothing else in their lives except hate. This was true for them then and is true now.
    Read the replies. Most are misogynistic mother haters. many are looking at male role models that they never had. There’s so much mention of real men. The psyche of far right is disordered.
    Then there is the

  39. The Swedish government needs to address this issue in a realistic manner. If many of the sexual assualts and rapes are being committed by Africans and Muslims, then all immigration from these areas must come to an end. Those Africans and Muslims currently in Sweden should be deported back to their native country. Do not let the UN or any other country put pressure on Sweden to disregard the safety or well being of the real Swedish people. Other European countries should follow the same pass. The European people better wake up and realize that they have a serious problem on their hands.

  41. Feminism is what has destroyed Sweden altogether. Today many men an women are feminists and support these ideas. The rest of us here, that has not yet fallen to the jewish media propaganda during the last 40 years hate and despise this society. Even having a relationsship with a woman today in this country involves you acting like a doormat (dog) for her, or she walks away. The only ones that get away with standing up against women are third world immigrants, because they can not be critisized since they are portrayed as “victims” themselves…… Even swedish rape victims often express understanding for what the rapistst’s did to them, if you don’t believe this, come here and live here and see for yourself. This is hell on earth, with a government and reprsenatatives that hates it’s own people.

  42. Sweden is a feminist state controlled by a militant feminist political party. Sweden defines a man paying a completely willing woman for consensual sex as “rape”. The completely willing woman is a “victim”.

    Sweden is a country ruled by people who hate men and now it is backfiring because the men are losing respect for women in the country, especially immigrant men who are not used to being oppressed and treated as third class citizens.

  43. Do storks bring babies?

    The most interesting part in the immigrant/rape incindence diagram is from a view of statistics not the steep incline on the right side of the curve but the little peak in the 90s with a consecutive decrease of both immigrant permissions and rape incidence.
    Comparing two curves in statistics always leads to the problem that similar shapes can reveal a coincidential relationship or “correlation” or a causal relationship or “regression”. One example is the number of storks increasing in springtime and so does the incidence of child birth. Investigating if storks bring babies (causal relationship /regression) or if thoe increases are coincidential years with lower increases of either stork numbers or birth rates have to be looked up or even better: storks have to be caught, shot or numbers reduced in any other way. If that would lead to decreases in birth rates from a statistical view causal relationship will be assumed or the other way: because that will not occur the relationship is non causative, coincidential and therefore called correlation.
    The increases of both rape incidence and immigration permit numbers can be coincidential as long as decreases in immigrant permit numbers do NOT lead to decreases in rape incidence. Because this however is the case as seen in the 90s, the relationship is a causal relationship: increases of immigrant permission numbers CAUSE the increase in rape incidence in Sweden.
    That is just an explanation because very likely people supporting unlimited immigration will keep saying that there is no connection between both curves. That is not true. There is one.
