Danish Days

Steen has posted an excellent selection of photos of Fjordman taken during the latter’s exile in Denmark.

Now that Fjordman has given permission for photos of him to be published, I dug through my image archives to see what I could find. I have a fair number of photos taken between 2007 and 2013, the last time I was in Europe. It fills me with a kind of nostalgic melancholy to look at them, since I know I’ll never see Denmark again, given that that I won’t be getting the “vaccination”. Even if I could somehow hop a catamaran to cross the Atlantic like Greta Thunberg, the Danish immigration authorities would still want to see my vaccine passport before they’d let me in.

A lot of the photos in my archive can’t be posted, because they contain other people who have yet to go public, and I don’t feel like trying to pixelate all of them out. However, I picked out a small selection to post here.

Steen took this photo of Fjordman and me in Copenhagen after one of our Counterjihad meetings in 2009:

Not all the photos are from Denmark. This one of Fjordman with Tommy Robinson was taken at an event in London in 2011:

As he mentioned in his post on Thursday, Fjordman spent some time in the USA in the spring of 2012 during the trial of Anders Behring Breivik. While he was here, he went to several wine tastings:

In the process of digging through various folders, I came across a couple of screen shots of the letter that Anders Behring Breivik wrote and sent to major media outlets in the fall of 2013:

Boys Just Wanna Have Fun

Two mischievous young high-spirited “Swedes” have been convicted of gang-raping a 14-year-old mentally retarded girl. The Luleå District Court threw the book at them: five years in prison, followed by deportation. As for the deportation part, I’ll believe it when I see it. They were already supposed to have been deported prior to the crime, and refugees-welcome volunteer lawyers pull out all the stops to make sure that nobody, no matter how vile, can ever be deported from Sweden. So we’ll see.

There are a couple of things to note about this case. First, based on their current ages, they were 17 when they first applied for asylum in Sweden back in 2015. That was the year when many thousands of grizzled gap-toothed 17-year-old male culture-enrichers threw away their ID and entered Europe seeking asylum. They knew the rules were different for “unaccompanied minors” — with more generous social benefits and a better chance of being granted asylum — so they jumped into the wayback machine, became 17 years old again, and took up residence in Germany, Austria, and Sweden. If you could count the tree rings on these guys, they’d probably turn out to be a bit older than the 22 or 23 they claim to be now.

Secondly, the crime they were convicted of — manipulating and then gang-raping an underage mentally retarded girl — is a common motif among asylum seekers in Europe. It’s a species of crime that seems to be quite popular with culture-enrichers, while being almost unheard of among native Europeans.

The incident has a very unusual Mohammed Coefficient of 150%.

Deportation-ordered gang-raped handicapped girl in woods: “F*** you very nice”

[Photo caption: Janmohammed Mohamadi and Mohammad Musaruf. Photo: Police]

Two asylum-seekers from Afghanistan and Bangladesh respectively, who came to Sweden in connection with the migrant chaos and were earlier ordered deported, were convicted Thursday for aggravated rape of a child. This after they tricked a 14-year-old functionally handicapped girl into the woods in Norrbotten and there raped her vaginally, anally, and orally. The men, who had been spared deportation through the school amnesty, are now being punished with prison and deportation, but will be allowed to return to Sweden again.

On April 28 of this year 22-year-old Janmohammed Mohamadi, Afghan citizen, and 23-year-old Mohammad Musaruf, citizen of Bangladesh, picked up a 14-year-old girl in a car from her school. Mohammad, who was superficially familiar with the girl, had enticed her to go for a ride.

The girl, who, according to legal documents, has a disability, was surprised that Mohammad had another friend with him in the car and also began to feel worried when she saw that they were going far away from her hometown of Klöverträsk, 40 kilometers outside of Luleå. The men eventually stopped at a hidden turnoff.

[Inset: After marking by a dog with competence for detecting sperm, an area was observed where the mark gave off a blue forensic light source in combination with yellow observation filter. A soil sample was secured in the area marked by the dog.]

Took turns raping

At the location, Janmohammed and Mohammad took turns climbing into the back seat and forcing the girl to perform oral sex. But though the girl asked the men to stop, the rape continued-they also penetrated the girl both vaginally and anally.

After the incident, they drove back with the car and the girl was released. When she came home, the girl’s guardian noticed that she was distant and also began to cry. Later the same day, the girl was taken to the hospital for an examination.

Ordered deported — but allowed to stay after school amnesty

Samnytt has received information from the Migration Agency in which it appears that both Janmohammed and Mohammad had initially received a deportation decision from the Migration Agency since they lacked grounds for asylum.

Defendants

Mohammad Musaruf (19980818-)

  • Interpretation need — Bengali or Hindi, citizen of Bangladesh.
  • Represented by attorney Marcus Strom
  • Warrant issued April 28, 2021, Arrested May 6, 2021, Ordered held in custody, May 7, 2021

Janmohammed Mohamadi (19991013-)

  • Interpretation need — Dari, citizen of Afghanistan
  • Represented by attorney Marko Tuhkanen
  • Warrant issued April 30, 2021, arrested April 30, 2021, Ordered held in custody May 3, 2021

Janmohammed first applied for asylum in Sweden on 7 November 2015. The Migration Agency rejected his application on 13 October 2017, and at the same time, decided to deport him to Afghanistan. The decision became final on 28 May 2018, but thereafter, Janmohammed applied for a residence and work permit to study at a secondary level.

The Wickedness of Wikipedia

Ten or fifteen years ago Wikipedia was a biased progressive outfit, but still in general a fairly reliable source of information. Despite their ideological preferences, its editors actually did try to be fair and objective much of the time.

Not any longer. Wikipedia, like most other major online resources, has abandoned any pretense of balance. If a topic has any current political relevance (and what doesn’t these days?), Wikipedia suppresses any information that doesn’t fit the Narrative.

Wikipedia’s co-founder caused a stir recently with his remarks about the unreliability of the resource he helped develop. Below is a Swedish take on Larry Sanger and the leftward march of Wikipedia.

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

Founder: “Do not trust Wikipedia”

July 18, 2021

Wikipedia’s left turn has now gone so far that no one should trust what is written in the digital encyclopedia. That’s what Wikipedia founder Larry Sanger says, reports the Daily Mail.

Larry Sanger — who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001 with Jimmy Wales — comes forward with harsh criticism in an interview with the site Unherd.

Last year Sanger caused a stir when he stated in a blog post that Wikipedia’s neutrality policy is now “dead” because the content on the site is so politically rigid.

Also on Swedish Wikipedia, there is a group of left-wing activists who angle the content of articles concerning political issues to the detriment of their opponents. Since right-wingers do not have the strength to create accounts on the site and oppose this, left-wing activists can continue with their behavior.

Larry Sanger tells Unherd that he no longer trusts the encyclopedia he once created himself.

Left-wing activists have distorted English-language Wikipedia to the point that many articles can now be considered pure propaganda, he states.

When asked if you can trust the encyclopedia, he answers: “You can trust that Wikipedia will give you a reliable establishment point of view on almost everything.”

Sanger takes as an example the way articles about left-wing politicians such as Joe Biden are cleaned up on critical issues, and the Republican perspective is notable in its absence. However, articles about politicians on the right like Donald Trump are full of criticism from a left-wing perspective.

The corruption scandal surrounding Joe Biden’s son Hunter can hardly be read about at all on Wikipedia, the founder further points out.

July 22, Ten Years On

Ten years ago today Anders Behring Breivik murdered 77 people in Oslo and on the island of Utøya. Of all the Counterjihad activists who were impacted by the political blowback from the attacks, none was more affected than Fjordman. Below are his remarks on the occasion of the anniversary.

July 22, Ten Years On

by Fjordman

Sometimes life can be very strange. When I was eating lunch in my small basement flat in Oslo on July 22, 2011, I did not anticipate that in a few hours my country would be rocked by a brutal mass murder. And I certainly did not expect that these events would also turn every aspect of my own life upside down.

Suddenly and without warning, I was thrown into the epicenter of an international media storm. Less than two weeks later, I had evacuated my home and fled from Norway out of serious concerns for my safety. At this point, I was publicly accused of being a possible accomplice to mass murder, and the suggested brains behind an international terrorist network. If my life in the summer of 2011 had been the script for a film, it would have been rejected as being too improbable to happen in real life. Yet all of this did happen to me, plus a lot more. All because of the actions of a man I have never once met in my entire life, not even for a cup of coffee.

Ten years later, things have calmed down somewhat. I have managed to reestablish a reasonably stable personal life. However, this is a new life in a new country.

I quietly moved back to Norway in 2017, to see whether it was possible for me to have a normal life there again. The answer was no. Three and a half years of applying for jobs turned out to be futile. I got no job whatsoever, not even as an unskilled laborer in factories, butcheries or the fishing industry. I applied for such jobs, too, not just for work in offices or shops.

In early 2021, I therefore decided to leave Norway again, for the second time in less than ten years. It is unlikely that I will return in the foreseeable future for anything other than short visits.

A decade of smears following the July 22 attacks by Anders Behring Breivik has left its mark. Norwegian media still publish new articles suggesting that I inspired mass murder. New comments are still being published on social media claiming that I have the blood of children on my hands. Not every month, fortunately, but from time to time.

Being quoted in Breivik’s confused compendium/manifesto is by far the greatest curse of my life. Nothing else even comes close. But perhaps it is possible to be cursed and blessed at the same time. I was also blessed with being surrounded by kind people. Both old friends and new friends alike.

I was homeless for some time. Friends in Denmark referred to me, only half-jokingly, as a political refugee from Norway. My first temporary home was with my friend Steen Raaschou in Copenhagen. He was exceptionally patient, and allowed me to occupy his sofa for months at a time. I also stayed for a while with professor emeritus Bent Jensen and his lovely Russian wife Tatjana. In the spring of 2012 I spent several months in the USA, and never lacked a bed to sleep in. My friend Ned May from Gates of Vienna helped me with this arrangement*. Not all of those who helped me probably want to be named. But they know who they are, and they have my gratitude.

In 2011, I had a part-time job in Oslo, working with young people suffering from autism. After the massive and extremely negative media focus on me in July and August of 2011, it was impossible for me to keep doing this job. Frankly, it was probably dangerous for me to even stay in my old flat. So I suddenly no longer had a job or steady income at the same time as I had to spend money on lawyers.

A Summer of Madness

Ten years ago I walked this street; my dreams were riding tall.
Tonight I would be thankful, Lord, for any dreams at all.

— Robert Hunter, from “Mission in the Rain”

Tomorrow is the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attack in Norway. On July 22, 2011, a man named Anders Behring Breivik detonated a truck bomb in central Oslo next to government headquarters, killing eight people. While police and emergency services were dealing with the aftermath, Mr. Breivik drove to the island of Utøya, where a summer camp for Socialist Youth was being held. There he methodically shot and killed sixty-nine teenagers with a high-powered rifle. When police finally arrived at the island, he calmly surrendered.

Anders Behring Breivik was a neo-Nazi, but that fact did not emerge until several years later, when he wrote a letter to multiple media outlets and admitted that his declared affiliation with the Counterjihad movement had been a strategic misdirection, to spare his Aryan nationalist comrades from persecution. That part of his letter to the media was widely ignored, and was never publicly reported by any major outlet. To this day he is widely identified as an anti-Islam ideologue.

Before he committed his atrocities, Mr. Breivik had arranged the media distribution of his manifesto, or as he preferred to call it, “the compendium”. It was a lengthy, rambling treatise. It contained some of his own writing, but most of it consisted of extensive quotes from various English-language writers, the most prominent of which were Fjordman and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch.

Those writers and others mentioned in the manifesto became the focus of a media frenzy beginning the following morning. Progressive pundits applied their usual pseudo-syllogism to the Utøya massacre:

1.   Breivik admired Fjordman.
2.   Breivik massacred innocent people.
3.   Therefore Fjordman was at least partially responsible for the atrocity. Q.E.D.
 

As I mentioned above, the Butcher of Utøya did not really look up to Fjordman; his admiration was a feint. So even the pseudo-syllogism was wrong. But none of that mattered; any information to the contrary was ignored by the left-wing media. Fjordman became an object of universal loathing. In Norway he was Public Enemy #1, in some ways eclipsing Breivik himself.

Up until that time Fjordman had only published his essays under a pseudonym. Beginning on the morning of July 23, the press and internet sleuths began an intensive effort to unmask him. It was only a matter of time before his real identity was uncovered, so after retaining counsel and making himself known to police, he outed himself via an interview with the tabloid VG. After that he fled the country and went into hiding.

And it’s a good thing he did: there were calls for him to be arrested and tried as Mr. Breivik’s accomplice, despite the fact that the two had never met, and Fjordman had never advocated violence in any form. But Norwegian public opinion did not bother itself with such trivial matters as facts and the truth. The slaughter on Utøya required a scapegoat, and Fjordman was chosen for the role.

He lived outside of Norway for a number of years, and only returned when the risk of arrest had diminished. However, he was unable to find work. Any prospective employer who was aware of who he was would refuse to hire him, and if he somehow found a job, even a menial one, he would be discharged as soon as his employer became aware of his identity. Now, ten years after the attack, he is living outside the country again, since he is unemployable in his homeland.

And, regardless of Mr. Breivik’s admission that his admiration for Fjordman was a ruse, Fjordman is still widely known as “Breivik’s mentor”.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

I won’t go into the Breivik affair in great detail, since this is primarily a reminiscence about the effect the atrocity had on Gates of Vienna and the Counterjihad in general. To learn more, check out the archives for the period from July 22, 2011 to ca. November 2011. Or look up the relevant items in the Fjordman Files. The trial of Anders Behring Breivik sucked up a lot of our blogging oxygen in the spring of 2012; see Circus Breivik for a relevant sample.

Because Gates of Vienna was the main venue for Fjordman’s writings, and was mentioned repeatedly in the killer’s manifesto, this site was put under the media’s klieg lights beginning the day after the massacre. We were thrust into a prominence we had never seen before (or since). It was a hideous kind of fame that I would never have asked for — they say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, but my experience in the summer of 2011 makes me vehemently disagree.

In the first few weeks we received hundreds (maybe thousands) of emails. Some of them were simply requests for information, but they were mostly hate mail, sometimes in Norwegian and Swedish. Various media outlets wanted to contact Fjordman, and I dutifully passed the messages on to him, but he didn’t respond to any of them.

The number of comments at Gates of Vienna (which was still on blogspot at the time) rose into the hundreds for each post, many of them from obvious trolls and provocateurs employed by one or another state intelligence service. They soon became unmanageable, so we reluctantly closed the blog to comments for a couple of months. When we reactivated them, we made them subject to moderation, and they’ve been that way ever since. It’s frustrating and annoying for commenters to have to wait to see their contributions appear, but otherwise Dymphna and I would have been unable to cope with all the trolls and provocateurs.

By the beginning of the week following the attack, media outlets started contacting me. They somehow managed to obtain my phone number, and I received calls from newspapers in Norway and the UK. Needless to say, I declined to say anything to them.

During our fifteen minutes of lurid fame we were mentioned in The New York Times and The Washington Post, among other illustrious publications. The following report from the NYT told its readers that Anders Behring Breivik had commented on Gates of Vienna several times:

What they said was quite true. Fortunately, I had already been alerted to the fact by a European contact, who told me the pseudonym that had been used by Mr. Breivik, so I was able to track down all his comments. Some people urged me to delete them, but that’s not the way we do business here at Gates of Vienna. First of all, nothing ever disappears completely from the Internet; it can always be found in the Wayback Machine or other web archives. But more importantly, I don’t believe in hiding the truth, whether it makes me look bad or not. So I collected all of the Butcher’s comments and reposted them.

Other things published by major media outlets, particularly the British tabloids, were not as accurate. The Washington Post published my name and something about me that was completely, factually false. I sent them an email demanding that they retract and correct their error, but I knew that nothing would happen. All I could do was post about what they did and ridicule them. If I had been a famous movie actress or best-selling novelist who could afford to retain high-powered lawyers, I might have had more success. But the WaPo knows it has nothing to fear from minnows like me.

Other papers, especially the tabloids, published even more ludicrous falsehoods about Gates of Vienna — who we were associated with, where we got our funding, etc., etc. And they asserted various bogus things about other people in the Counterjihad whom I knew personally — so-and-so is funded by the Koch Brothers, or the Mossad, or whatever. Just absolute nonsense.

That summer taught me not to believe ANYTHING that I read in the media unless it is corroborated by multiple independent sources and has a breadcrumb trail that leads back to verifiable facts. Which doesn’t leave much. Reading media news reports has become a form of entertainment for me, like reading mystery novels or watching The Simpsons.

The general effect on the Counterjihad was catastrophic. A lot of sites, especially those in Europe, closed down for good. A number of Counterjihad activists I knew personally soiled their breeches and fled the field at the first whiff of grapeshot. I must admit that I became exasperated with them — I said, “You knew how serious this work was when you got into it. What did you think we were doing, playing tiddlywinks??”

However, in retrospect, I’ve had to acknowledge that they did what they had to do. Unlike me, most of them had day jobs. They stood to lose a lot if they were exposed. Some of them had families to support. I can’t judge them. They dropped out of sight, and I haven’t heard from them since.

A few people urged me to shut down Gates of Vienna. But my Scots blood comes to the fore at such times, and my natural response is defiance. I said, “F**K THAT S**T!” [emphasis in the original] and soldiered on. It was a rough time, and I didn’t get much sleep for the first couple of months. But we weathered the storm.

On the whole, however, it was a major setback from which the Counterjihad never fully recovered. The resistance to Islamization has never returned to the level of July 21, 2011. Freedom of speech has been eroded even further, and sharia is now de facto in force in much of the West.

Dymphna and I always thought that Anders Behring Breivik’s machinations had been guided and assisted by a certain three-letter agency with the assistance of Norwegian intelligence. His “compendium” was obviously in large part not his own work, and his selection of “mentors” was exquisitely chosen to do maximum damage to those who opposed Islamization, at the exact time when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in the thick of collaborating with the Muslim Brotherhood in what eventually became known as the “Istanbul Process”. Resistance to Islam was a thorn in her side, and Anders Behring Breivik helped remove it.

I don’t think mass slaughter was part of the plan, however — the Norwegians would never have co-operated with such an operation. I think the intention was to let Mr. Breivik put together his scheme, and then roll it up at the last moment before it was executed. There would have been a prominent arrest, followed by maximum media publicity for his manifesto.

However, just before the plans matured, Wikileaks released a damaging series of documents showing some of the things [agency name redacted] had been up to in Europe, which forced them to shut down their presence in the American embassy in Oslo and withdraw Mr. Breivik’s handlers. The Butcher of Utøya was then let off his leash, and the rest is history.

Whether mass slaughter was intended or not, the plan was a great success. The Counterjihad was hobbled, the spread of sharia proceeded apace, and the Obama administration became a servant of the Muslim Brotherhood. And the Biden administration is, in effect, Obama’s third term.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

Before I close these remarks, I’d like to address an appalling issue that has emerged surrounding the mass murder committed by Anders Behring Breivik. When it first came up it was very distressing, but I’ve had ten years to get used to it. Now it’s just something that I have to endure whenever the topic is broached on this site.

In those early days I was shocked by the number of people who supported Mr. Breivik and considered him a hero for what he did. And I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and Aryan supremacists, but more mainstream people who oppose mass immigration and hate socialism. Every time I post something about the Butcher of Utøya they pop up again and express their admiration for him.

I’m not going to tolerate such comments, and will delete them when they appear. You might as well spare yourself the effort. If you want, you can visit Storm Front and similar sites and make your remarks there, where you’ll get a sympathetic reception and find a lot of people who agree with you.

I’m familiar with the arguments that people make to justify their opinion: Mr. Breivik was targeting future socialists, who would otherwise have grown up and entered politics and invited even more of the Third World into Norway. But that’s a specious line of reasoning, in my opinion. The mass slaughter only hardened public opinion against those who oppose mass immigration, and made it even more difficult to restrain such immigration. Killing all those kids inspired no sympathy for the Aryan cause; it had the opposite effect.

But that’s just the practical, utilitarian argument against it.

Mr. Breivik’s strategy was a recapitulation of one of the major trends of the 20th century: the mass extermination of entire classes of people. For him it was Young Socialists. For Hitler it was Jews, gypsies, communists, homosexuals, and the feeble-minded. For Stalin it was counter-revolutionaries, “wreckers”, the bourgeoisie, kulaks, and Ukrainians. For Pol Pot it was the intellectuals. For the Hutus it was the Tutsis. For Muslims it was Jews, Christians, Hindus, and other infidels.

What all the architects of those atrocities have in common is that they considered it morally justifiable, and even laudable, to engage in the mass slaughter of people based on their membership in a particular class — a race, a social class, an occupation, a nationality, etc. Individuals meant nothing. Those who engineered the massacres were not required to determine whether their victims were guilty of any crimes, or even subscribed to a particular ideology. They were members of a class, and for that reason they deserved to die. Men, women, children, invalids, the elderly and enfeebled — all had to go.

That is a pernicious mindset, and I’ll have none of it. It was the bane of the 20th century, and we’ve no business extending it into the 21st.

I know the counter-arguments — we’re in a war, and war sometimes requires us to do horrible things, etc., etc. If we want to win, we have to grit our teeth and do what is necessary.

Well, if that’s what it takes to win, then I don’t want to win. I’ll go down to defeat rather than jump into that particular boxcar to hell.

Disadvantaged and Marginalized Swedish Youths Take Hostages in an Eskilstuna Prison

Two misguided “Swedish” youngsters have reacted to years of discrimination and racism by taking two guards hostage in a prison in the Swedish city of Eskiltuna.

The conclusion of the following account is a sardonic spoof; the original on which it is based is here (see also this Yahoo News report). The inspiration for the final paragraph is this line from the original: “Tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet reports that they have offered to release one of the hostages in exchange for having 20 kebab pizzas distributed to other inmates.”

Swedish officials say two inmates have taken a pair of prison guards hostage. The Swedish Prison and Probation Service said they were barricaded inside part of the penitentiary 75 miles west of Stockholm in what officials described as “a very dangerous situation.” The prison service said the inmates abducted the prison officers after breaking into a guards’ room soon on Wednesday and covering up the surveillance cameras. Swedish media say the prisoners have demanded a helicopter to help them escape.

Tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet reports that they have offered to release one of the hostages in exchange for an advance of 20 virgins in anticipation of the 72 they expect to receive upon martyrdom. The Swedish government is making a frenzied effort to find virgins. Officials say privately that they are unlikely to locate that many before tonight’s deadline.

My attempt at gallows humor is not meant to detract from the seriousness of the situation in Eskiltuna. This is an ongoing story, and there’s no telling what the final outcome will be, but it may not turn out well for those two unfortunate guards.

Kurt Westergaard R.I.P.

Many thanks to LN for translating this article from the Swedish alternative news site Samhällsnytt:

Muhammad cartoonist Kurt Westergaard has died

by Almgren

The well-known Danish artist Kurt Westergaard has died at the age of 86. Westergaard became widely known when his illustration of the Muslim prophet Muhammad was published in Jyllands-Posten in 2005.

As a cartoonist at Jyllands-Posten, Kurt Westergaard became the embodiment of freedom of expression in Denmark, Berlingske writes in a obituary of the artist. His cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad created one of Denmark’s biggest foreign policy crises ever, Ekstra Bladet recalls.

Westergaard has described himself as “a culturally radical half-hippie who advocates peace, space for all and good coexistence.”

In addition to creating a foreign policy crisis, Westergaard’s drawing made him an object of hatred for Muslims around the world. According to information, a price of several million kronor was put on his head, the newspaper writes. He was soon forced to live under the constant protection of PET, the Danish security and intelligence service.

Attacked in his home

On January 1, 2010, a man with a Somali background broke into Westergaard’s home and attacked him with an ax and a knife. Westergaard escaped by locking himself in his bathroom, which the authorities refitted as a security room.

Police were quickly on the scene and shot the attacker in one leg and arm, after he also attacked them with his weapons. The man was sentenced to ten years in prison and then deported for life. Following the assassination attempt, Westergaard’s PET bodyguard protection was further expanded.

A couple of years later, a 29-year-old man was also arrested. This after making a bomb threat against Westergaard.

Westergaard was born in Døstrup in North Jutland. Before he started as a cartoonist at Jyllands-Posten in 1983, he had worked for several years as a teacher of German and a school inspector. At Jyllands-Posten, Westergaard continued to work as a subscriber until his retirement in 2010.

“I want to be remembered as someone who fought for freedom of speech. But there is no doubt that there are those who instead remember me as a Satan who insulted the religion of a billion people.”

Westergaard fell asleep in silence after a long illness. He leaves behind a wife, five children, ten grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

The Terror on Utøya and the Nuances of Insanity

Next Thursday will mark the tenth anniversary of the massacre of 77 people in Norway by Anders Behring Breivik, the Butcher of Utøya. The events of that day turned my life upside down for a few months, but what happened to me is trivial compared to what Fjordman went through.

There were far too many posts on those events for me to link to just one. If you want a refresher course, dig into the archives beginning on July 22, 2011 and work your way forward. It began with a live blog that included Fjordman himself.

I expect that we’ll be hearing from Fjordman in due course, and I’ll write a brief reminiscence of my own. But today I’ll start with excerpts from a post by Ronie Berggren, a Swedish blogger and podcaster. Many thanks to our Swedish correspondent LN for the translation:

The terror on Utøya and the nuances of insanity

July 4, 2021

Ronie Berggren reviews the book Witness to madness [Vitne til vanvidd] by Peder Jensen, about the witch hunt against Islam critics and critics of mass immigration that prevailed after the terrorist attack on the Norwegian island of Utøya on July 22, 2011, for which Jensen himself was pilloried as perpetrator Anders Behring Breivik’s prophet.

It has been ten years since Anders Behring Breivik detonated a bomb in Oslo’s government quarters and then shot 69 young people dead in a Social Democratic camp on the island of Utøya. It happened on July 22, 2011. An insane world was on view, for which Breivik was sentenced to 21 years in prison.

[…]

I have not read everything that his critics have written. I have read parts of Øyvind Strømmen’s book, whose Swedish translation I bought when it came out. I have not read Simen Sætre’s book about Jensen / Fjordman, but I have seen a lecture by him on YouTube, a 20-minute sleeping pill.

My own impression is that these experts are less knowledgeable than their Swedish counterparts, and especially Mattias Gardell (whom I read most of, and whose research methods I have great respect for even if I do not share his political views, which I consider obscure his conclusions). Gardell’s strength is that he is usually well-read about the subjects he describes, although he often simplifies and paints with far too broad a brushstroke, and creates his own narratives instead of examining the truth objectively. But despite that, he is still knowledgeable, or at least well-read, which Simen Sætre does not seem to be at all.

I therefore judge, based on the qualifications I actually have, that Peder Jensen is much more credible than his critics. Which brings me to the last part of my conclusions.

For the past ten years Peder Jensen has had to live as an outcast from his own country. Social stigma and unemployment are the price he has to pay for living by a principle that should be respected: the search for the truth and the courage to stand up for the truth he believes he has discovered. In a healthy nation, such people are utilized, made into political leaders if they are practical, or professors if they are more theoretically minded. This has not happened in Jensen’s case. Instead, the opposite has happened.

Hostility to Israel in the Swedish Church

Intellectuals in Scandinavia have long aligned themselves with Hamas and the Palestinians against the state of Israel. The luminaries of the Swedish Church (Svenska kyrkan) are no exception, and the animosity against Israel has ratcheted up in recent years.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Swedish blog Ledarsidorna:

How hostility to Israel rose up in the churches

Gunnar Hyltén-Cavallius has read Johan Sundeen’s report of the opinions hostile to Israel within, among other organizations, the Swedish Church. Hyltén-Cavallius concludes that in order to understand how the earlier friendly attitude to the State of Israel could change to one directly hostile, Sundeen’s report constitutes an inevitable fundamental building block.

In recent times anti-Semitism has been debated more and more. Investigations point out the Jews in our country are living with increasing insecurity, especially the situation in Malmö, which has received special attention.

Recently a scientific report has been published whose focus is a previously strong feeling of friendship for Israel, which has come to be replaced by pronounced criticism. The Ecumenical Clapham Institute has an ongoing research project within the framework “Israel and Faith Communities”. Johan Sundeen, professor of history of ideas, has now issued the project’s first report: “When theology became 68 ideology. Establishment of a hostile opinion (against) Israel within Swedish Christianity, 1967-1982.”

The dust jacket drawing speaks its own language: A Swedish bishop, in full vestment, holds the Palestinian flag like a crosier. He sticks an Israeli flag down behind him (in the sand, the snow?)

For years ago, when Sundeen published his ground-breaking study “68-Church”, he focused less on the complex problem of Israel and Palestinians. One reason for this was that the book would have been more extensive. Perhaps, this deficiency was for the good, for now, Sundeen has been able to return and examine this many-faceted and controversial question.

The preface is by Annika Borg, Doctor of Theology and a priest. She believes that research that investigates and exposes the imaginary worlds that give rise to and spread anti-Semitic ideas is not just a scientific task, but is “crucial for the development of society” as well.

In the introduction Sundeen refers to a debate in Expressen during the late summer of 2020 when the Swedish Church’s relationship with Islamist organizations was discussed. The columnist Susanna Birgersson had pointed out that many churches “designate Israel as the world’s villain, among them, the Swedish Church”. This was quickly denied by the Church’s headquarters in Uppsala. The Israeli ambassador Ilan Ben Dov claimed in a subsequent post that the policy of the Swedish Church toward Israel often seemed “more polarizing than that which has its origin in the Arab world.” (Expressen August 30 2020, September 1 2020, and September 9 2020).

Four Years in Juvie For Burning a Woman to Death

Back in February I posted about a gang of culture-enrichers in the Swedish city of Nässjö who set fire to a house with an elderly woman inside, burning her to death.

The Swedish “justice” system has now thrown the book at those rascally youths: the ringleader has been sentenced to four years in juvenile detention, and his accomplices were given similar sentences. Ha! That’ll teach those young whippersnappers a lesson!

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Nyheter Idag:

17-year-old sentenced to 4 years in juvenile custody after arson

ANNEBERG: On Friday a 17-year-old boy was sentenced for setting a villa on fire in Anneberg in Nässjö municipality and killing a woman who lived there. SVT reports that he has been sentenced to four years in juvenile custody for murder and arson.

The crime occurred on February 1 of this year. The 17-year-old admitted that he set the fire which caused the total destruction of the house and the incineration of the woman inside, but maintains that he didn’t think the woman was still inside and that he had no intention of killing her.

The Eksjö District Court convicted him of murder and arson as well as aggravated theft, vandalism, and harassment, and the punishment is four years in juvenile detention. He will also pay 180,000 kronor in damages to the woman’s relatives.

“That is a reasonable punishment, which corresponds to life in prison for an adult,” says Prosecutor Helene Thomasson to SVT.

Before the fire started the 17-year-old and his two companions harassed the 68-year-old woman. They followed her to her home and shouted curse words at her and spat at her, among other things. The woman called the police, who came, but by then the trio had left.

The two accomplices have been sentenced to juvenile detention and youth service for harassment and also for violation of the law for protection from accidents, since they did not sound the alarm for the fire.

Update on the Case of Denny Abrahamsson

Just before the “pandemic” began last year I posted about the “hate speech” case against a Swede named Denny Abrahamsson, who had been prosecuted for hets mot folkgrupp (“agitation against an ethnic group”) for saying things about Islam on social media that Muslims might find offensive. Since then his case has gone all the way to Sweden’s Supreme Court, which ruled against him.

Mr. Abrahamsson sent me the following open letter to warn the world that Sweden is in big trouble:

In Sweden we have a law about agitation against ethnic groups from 1948. The original purpose was to stop anti-Semitism. It was also meant to protect homosexuals and other minority groups, so the law was very justified.

In the year 1999 the Swedish Social Democrats made a secret agreement with Islamic groups with ties to Muslim Brotherhood to replace lost support from the Swedish working class with votes from Muslim immigrants. To get these votes they promised to give Muslims positions in municipalities, county councils and parliament. After that this law more or less became a sharia law used to stop criticism of Islam, and the judiciary have become very left-leaning. Many Muslim rapists and gang members get very soft sentences and very few of them get deported even if they don’t have citizenship.

There is also a group called “Online Hate Reviewers” who scan social media for “racial” comments about immigrants published mostly by retired people. Swedish people are very scared of being labelled racists, as they can lose their jobs and friends, so young people are mostly quiet.

The reviewers’ group gets taxpayers money from the government, and 2017 I was reported by a snitch after comments I made in a closed Facebook group calling Islam a fascist ideology and Mohammed a pedophile. In Sweden Islam is regarded as an ethnic group, but I was lucky and was acquitted. So the prosecutor appealed in the Court of Appeals, and I won again.

Shortly thereafter the same snitch reported me again for other comments on Facebook. The odd thing is I made these comments in another country, but if its directed at a Swedish audience, it falls under Swedish law even if you write it in a closed group who share the same opinions. This time, in June 2018, I was questioned by a Turkish woman who I suspected was a Muslim, but she refused to answer when I asked. It was a very unfriendly hearing, and she had also spent very much time going through my Facebook account mapping my children with names and pictures. My youngest son was very upset that this was open information for anybody to look into. Two years ago my account on Facebook was closed after I received many strikes about my comments.

The trial was set for the end of January 2020, but since I was being treated for blood clots in my lungs and left leg I asked if they could move it to June when I was planning to visit my family. I even sent a letter from a Thai doctor who dissuaded me from flying 11 hours, but the court didn’t listen to that, and I received a fine of €400 for not showing up. The next trial was set for the middle of September, as there were many problems with Covid. I booked a flight with Finnair that got cancelled for the same reason. I therefore agreed that my lawyer could represent me in my absence.

This time I was convicted and my crime was considered so bad that they wanted to jail me, but they considered my old age and gave me a heavy fine instead. The fine is set in proportion to your income, but they looked at the year 2015 when my income was three times higher than it is today. I have a pension of only €1,200 per month and my fine was €2,000 instead of the normal €600. When you lose you also have to pay your lawyer, and he cost €1,850.

Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said

Last week I posted a translated German article about less affluent areas of the Swedish city of Gothenburg that are now ruled by immigrant gangs. A policeman named Ulf Boström explained the way the criminal gangs use intimidation and extortion to run a lucrative protection racket.

Below are three brief videos and an article from SVT (Swedish public television) about the situation in Gothenburg that include interviews with Ulf Boström. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for subtitling the videos.

Policeman in tears after question on Gangs’ hidden victims: “Completely without a chance”

June 26, 2021

Swedish entrepreneurs have lost their families, their work, or have been forced to move out of the country in fear of being killed, SVT’s review shows.

The reason: They are systematically extorted by criminal networks. Now Gothenburg police officer Ulf Boström sounds the alarm that the problem is gigantic and that the police cannot protect the victims.

“Either you pay or you resist, and your life is completely ruined,” he says.

Start the clip to see the emotional interview with police officer Ulf Boström-who explains who is affected, and the powerlessness he feels in the face of the problem.

Integration policeman Ulf Boström has worked in northeast Gothenburg for 16 years. His telephone rings all the time. Worried mothers of gang members, imams, and people who don’t understand a document they receive from an official.

Boström: Therefore, the police cannot protect victims

He meets many of the people who live under constant threat of death, those who pay the gangs and family-based criminal networks, and those who refuse. He believes that police cannot protect those who report, even if they receive protected living.

“It is only temporary, and few who get protection in this way have a full life. Since for so long we have let this activity spread over all of Sweden, the gangs are in all the bigger cities. They have eyes and ears everywhere.”

SVT News-West for several years has met with about ten people around Sweden who refuse to pay. The victims are primarily people with a foreign background. The criminals see that they are easier to approach, according to Boström.

“If you don’t have a big family that can protect you, you are completely without a chance,” he says.

Tries to make politicians understand

He has long fought to make others understand that organized crime is so much more than attention-getting shootings. Ulf Boström is engaged in the local Democrat party, and in 2019 made news when he reported 300 Swedish ISIS members for aiding and abetting murder.

Living Under Gang Rule in Sweden

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Sweden: “If you don’t have a big family that can protect you, you have no chance”

Entrepreneurs in Sweden who lost their companies as well as their families or have had to move abroad for fear of being killed. That is shown in a report on the Swedish medium SVT [state broadcasting]. The reason for the uncertainty are criminal gangs that systematically extort entrepreneurs in Sweden. Now the Gothenburg police are sounding the alarm: The problem is huge and not even the police can protect the victims.

“Either you pay, or you defend yourself and your life is completely ruined,” says the policeman Ulf Boström. Boström has been working in the northeast of Gothenburg for 16 years. His phone rings all the time. Worried mothers of gang members, imams or people who have received a letter from an authority but do not understand what it says on it. The police are simply overwhelmed.

In his everyday life he meets many people who live under constant threat of death. Those who pay gangs and family-based criminal networks for extortion attempts, and those who refuse.

According to Boström, the police cannot protect everyone. “Because we’ve allowed this business to spread across Sweden for so long, there are gangs in every major city. They have eyes and ears everywhere.”
