Second Swiss Canton to Ban the Burqa

Dr. Turley, that good news guy, has another bell to ring, this one for Switzerland:

Love the Swiss! Not only are they the epitome of sensible guns laws in Europe, but almost nine years ago they famously banned minarets via a national referendum. Remember the outcry, particularly from Sweden, when news of the Swiss national referendum sent shock waves through multiculti dhimmis in the EU?

From our news feed back then, this entry returns to haunt Sweden’s elites as to the appropriateness of that minaret ban decided by the Swiss. Nine years later it would be a delicious irony had the ensuing period not been so bone-crushingly bloody for many Swedish women:

“I shall explain to the EU that this was not a vote against the Muslim religion, but against minarets as buildings”. Switzerland’s Justice Minister, Evelyne Widmer Schlumpf, was speaking on her arrival at a meeting of EU interior and justice ministers. At issue is the referendum in which Swiss citizens boycotted the building of minarets on their national territory. “In Switzerland, we honour freedom of worship: it is a very important right for us,” the Swiss minister said, acknowledging that the ballot’s outcome was not “a good sign for Switzerland”. “I am sure it will be possible to explain that our democracy holds this possibility of voting and that this was the outcome of the vote”, the minister said, insisting that this was not a vote “against the Muslim religion”.

The current presidency of the EU, Sweden, has expressed surprise and regret at the result of the Swiss referendum. On his arrival at the European Council, the country’s immigration minister, Tobias Billstrom, said he was “somewhat surprised” and found it “strange” that this kind of matter should be decided by referendum. “In Sweden the question of the height of buildings is a matter for local administrations. It is unlikely that in Sweden such a matter would be down to the politician, partly because the right of worship is recognised in Sweden”, the minister pointed out. Sweden’s minister for integration, Nyamko Sabuki, went further, expressing “regret” that Switzerland should have decided such an issue in a referendum. “The Swiss system is a good one because it calls on its citizens to decide, but sometimes it can be used inappropriately, as has happened here”. “Europe does not have a minaret problem. There are no issues between Europeans and Moslems. Moslems are Europeans”, the Swedish minister underlined. “I do not understand what type of issue was being resolved in this referendum”, Sabuki stated. (ANSAmed).

Get that? “Europe does not have a minaret problem… Perhaps not, Minister Billstrom. But Sweden sure has a ruin of rape/burn/pillage problems, so huge and out-of-control that police have given up attempting to enforce your own country’s laws. One hopes that in the ensuing nine years since you so horrifically misspoke that you’ve had time to reflect and repent. Try a silent, penitential sojourn to Switzerland, sir. Weep for Sweden while we celebrate Switzerland’s forward-looking ideas.

Denmark Leads a Paradigm Shift in Western Europe

Scandinavia is [in]famously fractured. The deep divisions are becoming more apparent by the week.

Now comes Dr. Turley to describe a surprising move by the Danes to consciously re-create a more cohesively Christian cultural outlook:

Even though polarized and secular Sweden is just across the bridge from Copenhagen, it might as well be on a different planet. It’s difficult to picture the Integrate-or-Leave program Denmark is setting up for those immigrants receiving state benefits ever filtering over to multi-culti Sweden.

[Poor Sweden — or rather it will be poor and increasingly lawless unless there are robust policy changes that allow it to move into the 21st century. Yes, I know: about as likely as it is that Minnesota might suddenly become reality-based. Both Minnesota and Sweden share the shmoo gene. That’s the fN gene — not just “nice” but fatallyNice. Can you say “cloud cuckoo land”?]

I doubt this move toward a more Christian-based culture will threaten Danish atheists/agnostics because it is clearly being led by their Queen, Margrethe II. Besides, a culture based on “Christian ideals” is not the same at all as a “Christ-centered culture” — which would lead, eventually to a theocracy of another sort. In her autobiography, M II revealed her personal regrets regarding the ways in which Denmark failed to limit immigration and then failed again to integrate into Danish culture those aliens who did arrive. As I recall, she labeled her own behavior as “lazy”.

Ahead of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 theses nailed on the door of the Wittenberg church, the Queen, the titular head of Denmark’s Lutheran state Church, traveled to Germany to participate in the celebrations. She planted a flowering ash tree in the church garden and donated her own needlework (a year-long project) to the newly renovated Castle Church. Scroll down the page to see images of the beautiful antependium she designed herself and then embroidered for the altar. Notice the white rose, an especially meaningful symbol of Lutheranism: it was used by the group of Germans, including the martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who rebelled against Hitler. As usual, the Daily Mail has the best pictures of her work and of the church.

I don’t agree with some of the details in Denmark’s enculturation project. For optimal outcomes — i.e., cheerful, creative and compliant children — mothers and infants/toddlers to age three are best not separated in order to avoid attachment disorders. Indeed, if anything, these mothers need as much “culture” as their children do, if not more. A wiser alternative would be to make attendance for mothers compulsory also, thus removing the burden of responsibility from the women’s shoulders. Their excuse to their compatriots? “I’m doing it for the money”.

[I wonder what Nicolai Sennels had to say about this mother/child separation? I find his ideas about developmental psychology to parallel my own, so if anyone has a link to his thoughts on this project by the Danish government please leave it in the comments. I’ll bet his reservations about this plan are much the same as mine. Unless, of course, the Danish “secret plan” is to chase as many immigrants as possible over the bridge. Just sayin’…]

A Missed Opportunity to Save Sweden

A Missed Opportunity to Save Sweden

by Fjordman

Some Swedish patriots and sympathizers abroad had hoped that the 2018 general elections would mark a breakthrough for more nationally-oriented parties and restrictive immigration policies. This did not happen.

The elections were held on September 9, 2018. The final election results were not ready until September 16, a full week later. For a technologically sophisticated nation, it should be possible to count votes faster than this.[1] This is yet another reminder that Sweden is no longer the efficient and well-functioning country it once was.

The right-wing Sweden Democrats (SD) did gain 13 seats in Parliament compared to the previous election, now holding 62 seats in total. Virtually all opinion polls had predicted that they would grow. Yet SD did not grow as much as some opinion polls had indicated. Many polls had suggested that the Sweden Democrats could surpass the Moderate Party to become the second-largest party. Several opinion polls from 2018 had SD receive about 21-26% support.[2] One opinion poll published a couple of months prior to the election gave them as much as 28.5% support.[3] This would have made them larger than the Social Democrats.

The Swedish Social Democrats have been the biggest party in Sweden continuously since the early 1900s. If they had been dethroned from this position, this would have had a significant psychological impact on Swedish society. While the Social Democrats had their worst election since 1911, they remained the largest party.

The Sweden Democrats didn’t even become the second-largest party. SD retained their spot as number three at 17.5%, behind the Social Democrats at 28.3% and the Moderates at 19.8%.[4] Alternative for Sweden (AfS), a new party that wants even more restrictive immigration policies than the SD, came nowhere near receiving the 4% of the votes needed to enter the Swedish Parliament (Riksdag).

It is interesting to notice that the two largest parties, the Social Democrats and the Moderates, in 2014 combined received 54.34% of the votes and 197 mandates in Parliament. In theory, the two major parties could thus have formed a majority coalition government together. This would be similar to the way the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Social Democrats (SPD) have ruled Germany together since 2013.

However, in 2018, the Social Democrats and the Moderates together got 48.1% of the votes. This earned them 170 seats in combination, less than the 175 needed to form a majority in the Swedish Parliament.

Establishing the next government in Sweden will be complicated. Especially if all the other parties keep treating the Sweden Democrats as evil racists that they do not want to cooperate with.

Sweden Admits it Has No State Mechanism to Stop Electoral Fraud

Ingrid Carlqvist and Maria Celander have founded a new alternative media site in Sweden, “Ingrid och Maria”. Their latest article concerns the flawed electoral system in Sweden, which drew attention after last weekend’s parliamentary election. Below are some excerpts:

Head of Sweden’s Electoral Authority: “No Control Mechanism to Prevent Voter Fraud”

By Ingrid Carlqvist

The outcome of the Swedish election differed hugely from the many polls the weeks before election day September 9. The polls suggested that the Sweden Democrats would be the largest or second largest party with 25-30 percent of the vote and that the Social Democrats would fall from 31 to 23-24 percent. When the votes were counted Sunday night the Sweden Democrats only got 17,6 while the Social Democrats lost only 2,8 percentage points and got 28,4.

Many Swedes became suspicious — how could the result differ so much from the polls? Several reports on social media reveal suspected electoral fraud and other strange things at the polling stations, such as missing ballots, fake names, Social Democrats who followed people into the voting booth and “helped” them put the “right” ballot papers in the envelopes, men of foreign descent telling their wives how to vote, signs urging people not to seal the envelopes but just fold the flap in, ballot boxes that had not been sealed and rude or even heavily drunk officials at the polling stations. In Southern Sweden, a voter experienced this situation:

“At my polling station two guys were in charge. One of them was pierced all over his face and was so drunk I could smell it a mile away. There were no ballots for Alternative for Sweden, even though I had phoned the day before and was assured they were in place.

The guys were totally disorganized and people were walking around everywhere. And one was as I said heavily drunk. I think if anyone needs to be sober it must surely be the people in charge of organizing an election …”

There can be no corruption in Sweden …

To most Swedes, the idea that the once safe and correct democracy of Sweden could be corrupted is almost impossible to fathom. Everyone understands that mistakes can be made, but they are always blamed on human error — that election fraud could be organized and widespread is dismissed as a conspiracy theory. Because it just cannot be, this is Sweden for God’s sake!

But Sweden is not what it used to be. The Swedish statesman Axel Oxenstierna (1583—1654) created our famous “civil servant responsibility”, assuming that all government officials “should act in the best interests of the nation and also strive to facilitate the work of other officials” and that was the rule for nearly 400 years. But over the last few decades, the system that served us so well has slowly but surely been phased out. The government officials that once made sure no corruption could occur, have been exchanged for lobbyists and activists, mostly from leftist — and LGBT communities.

Nowadays many government officials/activists refuse to answer questions, and they perceive questions about their agency’s work as personal criticisms. They often demand to get the questions sent via e-mail (which are rarely answered), claiming they cannot answer questions because they are off to an important meeting and then simply just hang up. And when they do answer their phones they are not actually in the workplace, but out doing errands like shopping or picking up children in kindergarten.

Possible Election Fraud in Gothenburg

Swedish voters went to the polls today to cast their ballots in the parliamentary election. The vote is a crucial one for the country, effectively a referendum on the issue of mass immigration into Sweden. At the moment it looks like the Sweden Democrats didn’t get the massive breakthrough vote that they had hoped for — early results show them at 19.2%-19.5% (live reports here and here).

The following article reports on an incident that may be an instance of electoral fraud, or may be a simple mistake on the part of local election workers. Many thanks to Tania Groth for translating this article from Swedish state television:

SD’s ballot papers missing at polling station

September 9, 2018

When the polling station at the Annedals School in Gothenburg opened, the Sweden Democrats’ party papers were nowhere to be found. It was only when SVT News called more than two hours later that SD ballot papers were added to the others.

“This is extremely serious and we will get to the bottom of this,” says Jörgen Fogelklou, the chairman of SD in Gothenburg.

Election workers working in the polling rooms are responsible for ensuring that there are ballot papers available for all parties that have received more than one percent of the votes throughout the country during any of the two most recent parliamentary elections. With regard to the actual ballots, it is up to the parties themselves to make sure they are distributed to the various polling stations (throughout the country). However, in the polling station at the Annedals school in Gothenburg, the Swedish Democrats’ ballots were not put out along with the other parties’.

Bill Werngren, electoral manager of the city of Gothenburg:

“This is extremely disturbing. The election authority is required to ensure that everything is done to the letter. Whether it is deliberate tampering or a mistake, we do not know. But it IS strange,” says Jörgen Fogelklou.

It was only when SVT News contacted the election manager in Gothenburg, just over two hours, after the doors were opened at the polling station, that the irregularity was discovered.

“I think it is regrettable that they have left out the Swedish Democrats at this polling station,” said Bill Werngren, electoral manager for the city of Gothenburg.

After a little over two hours

“It has been a bit over two hours since the polling station opened, and you didn’t notice that the ballots were missing before SVT pointed it out. How can that be?”

How to Become an Unperson in the Swedish Academy: Publicly Discuss the Statistics on Gang Rapes by Culture-Enrichers

Bilyana Martinovski is an associate professor in Human-Machine Interaction at the University of Stockholm (her Twitter account). She initiated a research product on aggravated rapes (gang rapes, violent rapes, rapes at knifepoint, etc.) in Sweden, which of course are mostly committed by third-world immigrants. In the process of collecting statistics, when she tweeted about what she had learned — just the statistics, mind you, based on official public judicial sources — she was immediately condemned as a “racist”, a “Nazi”, and all the other epithets that opponents of mass immigration have become accustomed to.

More significantly, her position at the university was immediately terminated, and the person who denounced her also wrote letters to other universities, thereby making certain that she would be unable to find further employment in her field.

The two videos below are from a two-part interview with Dr. Martinovski. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for conducting the interview and uploading the videos.

Eyeballing It

I went to the retinologist today to have my eyes scanned and get an injection in my left eye to prevent further damage from wet macular degeneration. The doctor said the scan looked good, with no indication of any further vascular eruptions, so I can go seven weeks this time before I get the next one.

It’s somewhat difficult to work at the screen right now, so posting will be light this evening. To tide you over until I get back up to speed, here’s a recording of a lovely young lady named Elisabet Wimark playing the “Little Fugue” in G minor (BWV 578) by Johann Sebastian Bach on the organ in Sollentuna Church in the suburbs of Stockholm (recorded and edited by Anders Söderlund).

This is possibly the most exquisite piece ever composed by Bach. It’s short, and densely packed with the fully-developed counterpoint at which the composer was so adept. This isn’t the best rendition of the Little Fugue that I’ve ever heard, but it’s fully competent, especially for an organist so young:

I chose this performance for a couple of reasons:

1.   You can see the organist’s hands and feet clearly and thus get a feeling for how the piece she is playing is structured; and
2.   Sweden is facing an important historical moment in the parliamentary election coming up next Sunday.
 

This is to remind our readers that there is another Swedish culture — a civilization, if you will — besides the lunatic asylum that we see in the news reports featuring metastasized feminism, rampaging political correctness, and an absolute surrender to aggressive immigrant invaders.

That other Sweden exists. It trained and mentored this young woman (in a church, of all places). It appreciates her work and comes to listen to her performances. She’s far from alone; just do a YouTube search on J.S. Bach’s organ works and you’ll find dozens of Swedish organists right there alongside the Germans, the Dutch, the French, and the Hungarians.

That other Swedish civilization may well be in its death throes. Its citizens may be largely unaware of what is about to happen to their country, which makes their plight even more poignant. So we should do all we can to celebrate and promote the existence of that other Sweden.

For the next few days — before, during, and after the election — I’ll ask readers to refrain from nasty, spiteful comments about Sweden and Swedes, as if they could all be lumped together as simulacra of Mona Sahlin and Fredrik Reinfeldt. They aren’t all like that, obviously. And we do them an injustice when we talk about them that way.

If we are witnessing the death of a civilization, we should pause to remember Sweden-That-Was, because that is what is in the process of being destroyed.

And don’t forget: Sweden isn’t fundamentally different from the rest of the West. It’s just a little further down the primrose path that leads to the Multicultural Utopia. We’re all on that same shining path, not far behind all those Swedes skipping gaily towards a doom they can’t even recognize.

The Swedish Establishment Cracks Down on Alternative for Sweden

Sweden now has two significant anti-immigration parties, the Sweden Democrats (SD) and Alternative for Sweden (AfS). The latter is smaller, newer, and less hesitant about speaking openly and frankly about the need to return Sweden to the control of native Swedes.

A crucial election is coming up next Sunday in Sweden. Both migration-critical parties are expected to make major gains in parliament after the vote, and the Sweden Democrats have a shot at becoming the country’s largest party.

Alternative for Sweden was planning a final rally before the election in Stockholm next Friday. The party had gone through the correct procedures and obtained the necessary permit from the municipal authorities. However, at the last minute the government yanked the permit, using the “hate speech” of a party member as its excuse.

Significantly, the leader of AfS, Gustav Kasselstrand, has announced that the party does not recognize the legitimacy of the municipality’s decision. He says the rally will go ahead as planned, and called for all AfS supporters to show up at the location in central Stockholm.

Swedes are not as reflexively respectful of authority as Germans are, but they’re pretty close, so this is a momentous act of defiance on the part of AfS. One might expect, say, Scots to be this ornery. But Swedes…?

It seems that change is in the wind.

Ruling parties stop Alternative for Sweden (AfS) in “Kungsan” — Kasselstrand: “Now it’s war!”

September 3, 2018

Politicians in the city of Stockholm decided today to cancel Alternative for Sweden’s (AfS) final election gathering in Kungsträdgården (“Kungsan”) this coming Friday, September 7. However, the AFS announces that they will still show up, and are calling on supporters to join them.

“We do not accept this decision,” says party leader Gustav Kasselstrand to the Swedish online outlet Fria Tider.

In connection with the public AfS party rally in Malmö this past Sunday, Jeff Ahl was reported for “persecution of minorities” because he used the phrase “Sweden for Swedes”.

This is what the city of Stockholm is using as an excuse to cancel the party’s final election rally in Kungsträdgården this coming Friday.

“Our premises and facilities should not be used by those who want to harm our democracy. This applies equally regardless of which anti-democratic or extreme political orientation you support,” says the Social Democratic Finance Council member Karin Wanngård.

Boys Just Want to Have Fun

An Afghan “youth” was about to be deported. It was his last day in Sweden, and he wanted to have some fun. So he got a bottle of whiskey and…

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Fria Tider:

Rape when he should be deported: “It was the last day and I should have fun”

August 15, 2018

The day after the rape, the locale NSD published a long article about how bad it was about the Afghan for his expulsion.

The raped woman was found unconscious and half-naked on a pier in Luleå. Now the suspected rapist is being prosecuted — a 22-year-old Afghan who was to be deported from Sweden.

“This was the last day. I should just have fun,” explained the Afghan when the police arrested him for the rape.

It was at 7:24am on Sunday when the police were alerted that a lifeless woman lay on the ground at the pier at Lulsundsgatan in Luleå.

An elderly couple had been alarmed after seeing from a distance that an Afghan in a nearby gazebo had intercourse with a woman who was completely “limp”.

The woman had been visiting the harbor festival in Luleå. She had taken a large number of anxiolytic tablets during the evening, and the last thing she remembered was that the Afghan invited her for whiskey and some other kind of drink, and explained that he was going to have sex with her.

When the police came to the scene, the woman lay unconscious at the pier with her upper body naked. The 22-year-old Afghan said to the police that it was his “last day” and that he “was only having fun”.

The Afghan came to Sweden during the asylum wave and applied for asylum in October 2015. The Swedish Migration Board rejected his application in August 2017, and in January 2018 the decision took effect. On June 25, two weeks before the rape, the man was sent to the police for expulsion.

Got his own newspaper article in the local newspaper

Norrländsk Socialdemokraten, NSD, published a so-called sob story article about Afghanistan on the day after the rape, the local newspaper’s left journalist Linda Kask reported.

Kast said, among other things, that the suspected rapist risked “being killed for his faith” if he were expelled, because he now claims that he is an “atheist”. In the article, the 22-year-old puts out the text that he is at risk of being persecuted by the “Taliban” at home in Afghanistan.

Rasmus Paludan and the Hag of Hell

Rasmus Paludan is a Danish lawyer and activist who is notorious for his provocative street events in Nørrebro, Vollsmose, and other centers of cultural enrichment in or near Copenhagen.

During his latest event, Mr. Paludan was confronted by a Muslim man and his wife. The husband was a more or less reasonable fellow, at least on the surface, but the wife — well, she was a piece of work. As Vlad says, “She is a casting-call reject from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Uppsala Has Fallen

Our Swedish correspondent Svenne Tvaerskaegg sends this grim report on the demise of the Swedish city of Uppsala.

Uppsala has fallen

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

The ancient city of Uppsala, the fourth-largest in Sweden with roots going back to Viking times, has fallen. Earlier this week, August 23 2018, Uppsala police announced that they are no longer in control, and criminal gangs have taken over the city.[1]

Uppsala is home to the immigrant ghettos of Gottsunda och Valsätra, both classified by police as amongst the worst ghettos in Sweden, where crime is rampant and law is in the hands of gang bosses and clan leaders. Police and other services are routinely attacked if they enter the ghettos, and even the fire brigade and ambulances have to wait for a police escort before they can respond to an emergency. Riots there are regular occurrences. In 2016 the twin ghettos were the scene of riots lasting for two days in which roads were barricaded with burning containers and cars were set ablaze. Molotov cocktails were thrown during pitched battles with the police, and the ghettos were deemed too dangerous to enter by fire brigades who were often forced to stand by at a safe distance and watch fires burn themselves out.[2]

Over the years immigrant gangs in Uppsala have spread their influence far beyond the ghettos, and have been waging open warfare against the police for control of the city. Shootings are common and police stations have been attacked with hand grenades. In what was a clear warning to the police and a show of what the gangs are capable of, the car of the chief of police was blown up outside his home. Prime Minister Stefan Löfven denounced the attack, which caused shock waves throughout the country. The Interior Minister promised severe measures would be taken against the gangs.[3]

What such measure might be nobody knows. Everything tried so far has been unsuccessful. In 2014 a new chief of national police, Dan Eliasson, was appointed who promised to regain control of Sweden’s ever-growing ghettos. In 2018 Dan Eliasson admitted defeat and was removed from his position. Under his watch the number of ghettos actually increased and immigrant crime continued to rocket. According to chastened ex-police chief Eliasson, police resources are overwhelmed by out-of-control immigration, gang shootings and crime, and “many in Swedish society do not fully realize how troubling the situation is.”[4]

Swedish Mass Arson Attacks — An Islamic State Connection?

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, here’s an update from our Swedish correspondent Svenne Tvaerskaegg with more information of the coordinated mass car-burnings that took place across Sweden the night before last.

Swedish mass arson attacks — An Islamic State connection?

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

Swedish security services have been studying CCTV footage as well as videos posted on YouTube and other forums that show the mass arson attacks against a number of Swedish towns and cities during the night of August 13. A number of suspects have been identified, and two 20-year-olds have already been detained. As further suspects are identified, police raids in the immigrant ghettos may be expected.

An unsettling aspect of the attacks was their military-style precision and co-ordination, indicating a degree of sophistication beyond the scope of the usual chaotic ghetto riots and car-burnings that have become a feature of modern Sweden. The Swedish security police, Säpo, believe there are large numbers of potentially violent Islamic extremists in the country, many of them having fought with the Islamic State in the Middle East. According to a Säpo spokesman there were an estimated 200 Islamic extremists in Sweden in 2010, but after the last few years’ massive immigration from Middle Eastern war zones their numbers are now estimated to be “in their thousands.” According to the spokesman this situation is “the new normal” for Sweden and the presence of returned Islamic State fighters as well as rapidly growing Islamic extremism in the ghettos represent “an historic challenge.”[1]

An alternative for the August 13 attacks that cannot be ruled out is that Islamic State operatives may have been involved in their planning and execution. Police believe a number of the perpetrators are no longer in Sweden and may be making their way back to the Middle East. An identified suspect who had already fled Sweden has been arrested while trying to enter Turkey. He will be extradited back to Sweden to face charges as soon as this can be arranged with the Turkish authorities.[2]

The Swedish government has been put in an extremely difficult position by the arson attacks. The general election is less than one month away, and the main ruling party, the Social Democrats, are rapidly dropping in the polls as the nationalist and anti-immigration Sweden Democrats are rapidly rising. It was already likely the Sweden Democrats would emerge as the largest party in the Swedish parliament, and the arson attacks will only increase this probability. They have brought a new dimension to the pre-election situation and presented Prime Minister Stefan Löfven with an impossible dilemma. He has to be seen as strong and taking effective measures against the arsonists, but any large-scale police action in the ghettos will inevitably trigger riots on a scale not seen since the Stockholm ghetto riots of 2013. This would make a very bad situation even worse as the world’s eyes, and Swedish voters’ eyes, are on television images of pitched battles and burning cities. This is something Mr. Löfven definitely does not want, but may have to face up to.

It is going to be a very interesting run-up to the election in Sweden.

Swedish Cities Hit by Arson Attacks

Our Swedish correspondent Svenne Tvaerskaegg sends this report on the wave of arson jihad that has been sweeping through culturally enriched neighborhoods in Swedish cities for the last couple of days. In addition to his suggested YouTube search, I recommend searching for images and videos using the word “bilbrand” (car fire), followed by a the name of a Swedish city. You’ll find some amazing photos that way.

Swedish cities hit by arson attacks

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

A wave of terror struck Sweden last night (August 13) as a series of co-ordinated arson attacks broke out simultaneously in towns and cities across the country. In what was described by Prime Minister Stefan Löfven as resembling “a military operation” gangs of black-clad and masked youths exploded flashbangs and torched cars in Falkenberg, Gothenburg, Helsingborg, Lysekil, Kalmar, Malmø, Trollhättan and Uppsala. Shocked Swedes stared from their bedroom and living room windows in horror as gangs of youths, described by eyewitnesses as “immigrants” and speaking the slang associated with immigrant ghettos, assembled in parking lots across the country and then, as if at a given signal, went on the attack. Car windows were smashed and firebombs hurled into vehicles, turning the evening sky bright red as cars burst into flames, sending plumes of smoke across towns and cities in scenes reminiscent of the Stockholm ghetto riots of 2013. Police and fire brigade services responding to the attacks were pelted with stones and flashbangs, hindering attempts to extinguish the flames.

Many Swedes filmed the carnage in parking the lots outside homes and high rise apartments and have posted graphic videos of the nights attacks on YouTube.[1]

This attack marks a serious escalation of immigrant violence in Sweden in its scale, martial-style co-ordination and precision as well as choice of target. Attacks with automatic weapons and hand grenades against police stations are not uncommon in Sweden, and many police stations are under permanent armed guard, but this time the attack was aimed at ordinary Swedes and their property. It is hard to understand what its purpose may have been. The Swedish general election is less than one month away and the attack is bound to win votes for the nationalist and immigration-critical Sweden Democrats party, something that would seem to be against the interests of the immigrant gangs who control the ghettos that surround just about all Swedish towns and cities today. But provoking ordinary Swedes and further polarizing Swedish society might well have been their purpose. There may be powerful Muslim fundamentalist elements in the immigrant ghettos who want to bring conflict to a head and provoke a civil war in Sweden.

Rinkeby Police Fortress Under Attack

Here’s the latest news from Modern Multicultural Sweden: While Prime Minister Stefan Löfven was busy hunting down Nazis, “youths” attacked Rinkeby’s new police station.

Rinkeby police fortress under attack

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

Building work on Sweden’s new police fortress in the ghetto of Rinkeby has been interrupted after an attack early on Tuesday morning (August 7). At 1:31am a car smashed through the gates and onto the building site. The car’s masked occupants leapt out of the vehicle, set it ablaze and hurled flashbangs at security guards.

Stunned guards called for police re-reinforcements, who quickly arrived but were met by a hail of flashbangs and rocks. The fire brigade had difficulty extinguishing the blaze because of the risk posed by exploding flashbangs in the burning vehicle. The attack is believed by police to be in retaliation for a narcotics raid in the Rinkeby ghetto earlier in the evening. It is a clear warning to the police to stay away from Rinkeby.[1]

The new chief of Sweden’s National Unit for International and Organised Crime has called Rinkeby a “war zone” and the high-tech police station under construction there is intended to be an important pivot in the battle by the authorities to bring Rinkeby back under the control of the Swedish state.[2]

Building work on the police station is not an easy job, and it was difficult at first to find a building firm that would take it on. None of Sweden’s largest builders were interested, as it was considered far too dangerous, but a building firm was eventually found and work is slowly progressing under round-the-clock police protection.[3]

When the station is ready it will be an armored fortress, with bulletproof windows, steel plate-reinforced walls and surrounded by a security fence. It is officially designated as a “protected installation”, a classification used by the armed forces for military installations, and it will be secure against sabotage and terrorist attack. Taking photographs of the station will be punishable by a five-year prison sentence.
