Below is an excerpt from Sunday’s post by Lars Bern on his blog, as translated by Da Capo in the comments (edited for clarity):
The Sweden picture collapses like a house of cards.
Our hypocrisy will be thrown back in our faces. The world will see that we are nothing more than a pitiful segregated class society, where immigrants are our new underclass. We may now expect that every immigrant murder, rape, arson and other serious crimes will get much attention in the United States and the rest of the world.
I see today that a leading US news channel has a headline about the recent fire in an asylum accommodation — such things did not get international attention a week ago. Our time in the international spotlight as a good example is over!
The incident is extremely serious for a small country with a strong dependence on the outside world, and with a number of foreign shareholders in Swedish companies. When it comes to deciding on investments and initiatives, obviously many investors will tighten their ears and think both once and twice about whether it’s so smart to invest in a dysfunctional society such as Sweden. Competent people we want to attract to our companies will be reluctant to accept. Tourists will ask whether it is wise to travel to a country with a rising crime rate and an undermanned police force. I know many substantial taxpayers who today are considering emigration. A destroyed image of Sweden will harm the country in a wide range of areas.
Considering purely economic problems, it should be added that the Swedish political elite now have made themselves enemies of the president of the world’s most powerful country and most important economy. They were previously adversaries to the management of our closest eastern superpower. We also see how the few friends they have left among European leaders are about to be replaced, even among the anti-globalists. Soon the Swedish political elite, with its blind faith in globalism, will stand alone in a hard world with only Palestinian terrorists as friends. Sweden’s voice in the world has been weakened at all levels, and the exposed Swedish people risk having to pay a high price.
