To Shake or Not to Shake?

Jimmie Åkesson is the leader of the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna), the anti-immigration party that is shunned and cordoned off by all the decent, progressive parties — which means every other political party in Sweden (with the exception of Alternativ för Sverige).

In the following interview, Mr. Åkesson discusses the decision by Foreign Minister Margot Wallström not to shake hands with the representative of the Iranian regime during his recent visit to Sweden.

Video transcript:

00:01   …I think there should be a difficult balancing, of course.
00:05   What I really reacted against was,
00:08   which you pointed yourself, that she didn’t shake hands with him.
00:13   I think when she receives a controversial person,
00:17   such as the representative of the regime in Iran,
00:21   that she as the Foreign Minister, at least on Swedish territory,
00:26   should have demonstrated in one way or another the values we have in here [in Sweden].
00:30   But Margot Wallström didn’t do that, and decided not to shake hands with him …
00:35   Should she have shaken hands with him?
00:37   Definitely. If he didn’t want to, then it would have been evidence, in a way, of
00:42   our values that we stand for and that he stands for a fusty view of women from the Medieval Era.

    Raped a 12-year-old until she is bleeding- sentenced to a week’s youth service

    After a time of grooming on Snapchat, 17-year-old Mikael Shaba managed to trick a 12-year-old girl down into the basement of the house where he lives. There he brutally raped the girl until she bled from the vagina. He then bragged about the incident to his friends.
    The Eskilstuna District Court (B 1850-18) considers that the crime should be punished with a three-week youth service and a number of conversations with a social assistant.

    Where does the money for this come from?

    Sweden needs 187,000 new teachers
    More than half of all those studying at the college’s vocational program would need to be teacher students to meet the need in the coming years, according to a report from SKL.

    By 2031, the total teacher recruitment requirement is 187,000 full-time positions. Today, there are a total of around 240,000 teachers in preschool, primary and secondary schools.

    By 2027, the number of children and pupils in preschool primary and secondary school age will increase by almost 350,000, which corresponds to an increase of about fifteen percent compared to 2017.

    In the next few years alone, over 600 new preschools and 300 new schools will need to be built in Sweden to accommodate everyone.

    Immediately, 1,500,000 new homes are needed to to accommodate everyone, highlighting the current housing shortage.

    • Don’t think they will need all 187,000 teachers. Half that number should be sufficient since girls shouln’t be educated anyway according to islamic doctrine.
