Everything’s Hunky-Dory in the People’s Home

Folkhemmet — “The People’s Home” — was the term for the cradle-to-grave Swedish welfare state coined in the early days of the Social Democrat Party. The events of recent days seem to have made the People’s Home put its blanket over its head and scream, “Stop looking at me!”

The unraveling of the “Trump is lying about Sweden” meme makes you wonder how bright those dim bulbs in the MSM really are. Did they really think that drawing attention to the consequences of Multiculturalism in Sweden was a good idea? Did they have no idea that their Trump-mocking would be rapidly eclipsed by the grim reality of the Swedish banlieues? Were they totally unfamiliar with the continual and routine violence that has accompanied the cultural enrichment of Swedish cities?

Are they clueless, or what?

Matt Bracken sends his own meme on Modern Multicultural Sweden:

  1. So the President was one day out, it wasn’t ‘last night’; the Dems are happy to make a liar out of him for one day.
    Notch up another one for the Prez!

    • Short answer : NO!

  3. Frighteningly dim – especially when one considers that these people think they run the place.

    Trump Is Right: Sweden’s Embrace of Refugees Isn’t Working

    The country has accepted 275,000 asylum-seekers, many without passports—leading to riots and crime.

    Feb. 22, 2017 6:43 p.m. ET

    When President Trump last week raised Sweden’s problematic experience with open-door immigration, skeptics were quick to dismiss his claims. Two days later an immigrant suburb of Stockholm was racked by another riot. No one was seriously injured, though the crowd burned cars and hurled stones at police officers.

    Mr. Trump did not exaggerate Sweden’s current problems. If anything, he understated them. Sweden took in about 275,000 asylum-seekers from 2014-16—more per capita than any other European country. Eighty percent of those who came in 2015 lacked passports and identification, but a majority come from Muslim nations. Islam has become Sweden’s second-largest religion. In Malmö, our third-largest city, Mohamed is the most common name for baby boys.

    For the sake of the American people, with whom we share so many strong historical and cultural ties, we can only hope that the leaders in Washington won’t make the same mistakes that our socialist and liberal politicians did.

    Riots and social unrest have become a part of everyday life. Police officers, firefighters and ambulance personnel are regularly attacked. Serious riots in 2013, involving many suburbs with large immigrant populations, lasted for almost a week. Gang violence is booming. Despite very strict firearm laws, gun violence is five times as common in Sweden, in total, as in the capital cities of our three Nordic neighbors combined.

    Anti-Semitism has risen. Jews in Malmö are threatened, harassed and assaulted in the streets. Many have left the city, becoming internal refugees in their country of birth.

    The number of sex crimes nearly doubled from 2014-15, according to surveys by the Swedish government body for crime statistics. One-third of Swedish women report that they no longer feel secure in their own neighborhoods, and 12% say they don’t feel safe going out alone after dark.

    A 1996 report from the same government body found that immigrant men were far likelier to commit rape than Swedish men. Last year our party asked the minister of justice to conduct a new report on crime and immigration, and he replied: “In light of previous studies, I do not see that a further report on recorded crime and individuals’ origins would add knowledge with the potential to improve the Swedish society.”

    Our nation’s culture hasn’t been spared either. Artists accused of insulting Islam live under death threats. Dance performances and art exhibitions have been called off for fear of angering Islamists. Schools have prohibited the singing of traditional Christian hymns because they don’t want to “insult” non-Christian immigrants. Yet reports made with hidden cameras by journalists from Swedish public media show mosques teaching fundamentalist interpretations of Islam.

    Sweden’s government now spends an incredible amount of money caring for newly arrived immigrants each year. The unemployment rate among immigrants is five times as high as that of native Swedes. Among some groups, such as Somalis, in places like Malmö unemployment reaches 80%.

    “Important that we do not tire of telling about all good examples.
    It is extremely important for the image of Sweden in the world that we do not give up, but continue to tell everybody about the good examples, King Carl Gustaf says in an interview with Sydsvenskan after his Wednesday’s visit to Malmö and Lund.

    • I asked Verdens Gang (Norway) just today to name one single positive thing the moslem invaders have done for Norway.
      Still waiting to hear of that single positive thing, but the Swedish media and government are frantically telling us everything’s fine in Gamla Land.
      Yeah, right…

  6. I have noticed this “oops I made a mistake” media-baiting frequently enough to recognize it as a master strategy by Trump. Like teasing kittens with a laser pointer, Trump throws the MSM a “mistake” and they just HAVE to pounce on it. This causes a deeper exploration of the entire subject (this time the effects of the Islamic hijra conquest of Sweden) than the MSM would have ever made before. And he does it so well that his “mistake” is taken at face value every time. He has the laser pointer, and the media are the kittens. And they think HE’S stupid, as they pounce on the red laser dot day after day.

  7. There is no war in hooly booly land, There is no strife in hooly booly land, There are gang rapes in hooly booly land…

  8. there is no doubt muslim and third world tribal migration has deleterious effect on Western freedoms and starts eroding basic civilized faculties and perceptions.

    I would rather read some/any article/synopses on what to do about it.

    In the UK there are only 5 prominent public people supporting resistance to islamization – Tommy Robinson, Paul Weston, Douglas Murray, Anne M. Waters and Pat Condell.

    at least fist 3 stated repeatedly – “there is no good solution”.
    Other two maybe forgot to express it directly or I overlooked.

    OK then let’s talk about damage minimization, – this is developing story.
    There should be at least four clear strategies – containment/attack in high/low kinetic regimes.
    Planning is to be done for every social group, at all levels.
    Without resistance backbone, West is simply a substrate for consumption.

    • You left out Baroness Caroline Cox, Malcolm Everard MacLaren Pearson (Baron Pearson of Rannoch), Melanie Phillips, and others that aren’t popping into my head right now.

      There is almost no Islam-criticism at the top levels of politics and media in the UK, but at the second tier and below there is quite a lot of it.

    • “there is not good solution”…okay, let’s talk about damage minimization…

      Moving from the present to the future, as the former becomes history, is about chaos, large events that begin with, say, one assassination. History has unknowable hinge-points that can only be seen in the rear-view mirror as we’re hurtling forward.

      Planning a push-back can only be done in/by small pockets, unknown to one another – at least not consciously known. In England (and the rest of the UK), what was once a solid middle class has been systematically unmanned. I don’t know the particulars of British politics, but what I do understand are a few threads in the tapestry:

      the first was the post-war decision to go full-bore socialist even though the evidence shows that f.b. socialism eventually fails;

      another was the sneaky decision by Labour – I think it was Labour – to bring in lots of “inferior” people from the former colonies and make sure they learned to vote correctly (we had a similar situation in the US, but the colonization was internal);

      a third was the deliberate dumbing-down of the lower and lower middle-classes whilst spreading a uni-education so widely (and thinly) as to make it meaningless;

      fourth was the new religion of “tolerance” – one could be a leech on the derriere of England and yet still feel righteous because, above all, one was “tolerant”. Intolerance replaced treason as the highest crime.


      EU membership merely hastened the destruction; it’s uncertain how much Brexit will help.


      It is difficult to fathom the human heart. It is impossible to fathom the heart of a nation, especially in a cultural climate where a ‘tolerance’ for mystery is given neither seat nor voice.

      All of Europe has fallen under this spell, each country producing its own variant of militant atheistic marxism. The Berlin Wall fell and soviet communism was ruled a failure. But it wasn’t really; the Wall fell because it wasn’t needed anymore. The virus had long since escaped into the continent. Communism was anything but tolerant, but the new Marxism unfurled the false flag of tolerance into every section of the west. Sadly, there was utterly no tolerance for dissent…

      I agree, it would be more comforting to read about solutions; our hearts yearn for them. But in this deeply immoral and poisonously depraved environment, only provisional patches can be made. The rot is too deep and widespread to heal. The best we can hope for are patches, here and there, to tide us over till the new wineskins have been fabricated. But they won’t be devised or sewn in our lifetime and they may well be stamped with “Made in ROC”.

      Don’t forget our internal polarization. About forty percent of us, perhaps more, are fine with things as they are. Their numbers seem larger because they possess all the microphones. So in addition to creating a safe, wholesome culture, we also have to tunnel into the enemy camp, the place where the delusionals think everything is fine. Or would be fine if only we haters would shut up and get with their peecee program.

      And especially don’t forget that the center of cultural gravity is shifting toward the East. The Chinese own much of America now, and much of the mineral rights and oil in the African continent. They’re not interested in displays of martial power (except close to home); they prefer the reality of economic ownership. China has always known how to play the long game. Sometimes its ignorance about the larger world has caused deep suffering – e.g., the Opium Wars, but each time China learns and moves on.

        • Coming from you, that’s high praise indeed, since we both admire your work.

          Nope, didn’t crib it. It’s the result of reading and thinking these last ten (twelve?) years GoV has been in existence.

          The impetus for the creation of Gates of Vienna came from the B’s conviction that, for me, an ongoing intellectual pursuit was a path out of the wilderness of grief I stumbled into after the death of my daughter.

          Or, in the words of T. H. White:

          “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”

          Odd to think we wouldn’t be here had Shelagh not died. My heavens…

  9. I won’t argue that there is some sort of rot in the West, and that it is deep and widespread.

    many attempts were made to summarize reasons; I never liked any.
    yours also looks to me as strong projection.
    nobody today knows what is marxism or communism, nobody cares, and that is justified from practical viewpoint.

    however, people still remember about good and evil.
    I will give an example.

    Some years ago I collaborated with Catheter lab in one of London’s large hospitals.
    to cut it short, it all resembles Moon landing mission control room, multiple probe drivers, debates, multiple tasks.. only a bit cheaper equipment, highly paid stuff, long excruciating procedures, lethal risk.. very expensive and very stable establishment.
    (BTW this is only one sort of lab, specializing on fixing heart arrhythmias).
    and what do we have as an outcome?
    as an outcome we have saved lives of.. mostly pensioners who will live another 10-20 years draining pension funds from the people.. eeh.. hey Karl.
    system works against itself in very clear, absurd way.
    yet it can’t be otherwise.
    we wouldn’t be who we are without that absurd.
    this is only one example from allegedly rotten “lefti” world , – and there are many, – that I would not change for any number of Darwinian certainties.

    there are some more things on which I would disagree.
    i think it is desirable to discuss publicly every strategy and tactic of practical de-islamization, which is kept within the law, – trying to target the audience with high moral, – see an example below.
    they are not insignificant in numbers.
    and they do matter most.

    another thing is the role of China.
    Chinese immigrants in the West are mostly students and technics oriented staff.
    many classical musicians, too.
    this is blessing.
    the way how Chinese think and feel is very similar to Western.
    I’d never say that about subcontinentals, of either sort.
    my suspicion is that China will eventually become an ally (which it already is, defacto) and the part of the salvation.
    I agree that they still dragging lot of archaic stuff like imperial hierarchy, cruelty.
    on the scale of malignancy, I would give them 10-15% (for Putin’s Russia good 90).
    To move with the West, they will need to shed it.

      • My observations were not projection, but I don’t mind that you think I build such castles.

        People don’t have to be able to rattle off the tenets of Marxism, or the Alinsky rules, to be able to internalize them and live them. I have met any number of people who unwittingly brag about their tolerance, and then proceed to list the things they hate. The level of cognitive dissonance is stunning.

        P.S. You don’t have to master the finer points of aeronautical engineering before they let on the plane, Ay.

  10. Will it be Sweden or the Netherlands that becomes the first European state controlled by Muslims? Money is on Sweden !

    • Also France, Germany and yes, even U.K. What fun times we live in!

      These last three could never be run by moslems, they are simply not smart enough, so I’d think the moslems would be happy to just be in a superior status, much the same as they were in Spain before Bella and Ferdy kicked them out, and let the kuffar do the heavy lifting.

  11. I wonder how much of the Swedish economy is based on the projected need for replacement cars which will be torched by the new immigrants? I wonder how much France depends on the new immigrants torching cars, rather than resident workers building them? How many jobs does torching 40,000 cars every year (80 every day) in a population of 64 million create?

  12. US (and Global) mainstream media’s hypocrisy on Sweden

    In his latest program Fox News TV host Bill O’Reilly talks about the hypocrisy of the US-media in connection with Donald Trump’s statement about Sweden. First gloating about the fact that no terrorist attack had occurred – something Trump never claimed – and then become totally silent when riots in Rinkeby erupted only a few days later.
