Fredrik Reinfeldt: Down With the Nation State!

Fredrik Reinfeldt is a former prime minister of Sweden. He is also the former leader of Moderaterna, the Moderate Party. In the article below, all instances of the word “Moderate” refer to the party. It is considered a “center-right” party, despite being all but indistinguishable from the Social Democrats in its policies. Thus there is no major alternative to big-state globalist socialism in Sweden except for the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna), who will never be allowed to form a government.

I remember when Mr. Reinfeldt became prime minister back in 2006, “moderate” conservative journalists in the USA — think of them as the RINOphiles of the media establishment — celebrated, because the Moderates weren’t officially described as socialists, and were considered to be on the right. When you read the piece below, you’ll understand what a hoot that idea was.

Reinfeldt: It’s wrong to put one’s own country first

Former Prime Minister and Moderate Leader Fredrik Reinfeldt was invited to this year’s Moderate Party Conference to give a hostile speech. He warned of Donald Trump’s nationalist “world power order”.

During the Moderates’ ongoing party conference in Västerås, the former Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt was invited to speak.

Reinfeldt, who in recent years became a multimillionaire outside of politics, continued in the same vein as the infamous “open your hearts” speech from 2014, which paved the way for the great wave of asylum-seeking in 2015.

In his speech at the Party Conference, he focused on the American election next year, about which he will write a new book.

Reinfeldt warned of Donald Trump’s nationalism and the new “world order” that the US president is said to stand for. The world should be globalist, believes the former Moderate leader.

According to Reinfeldt, Donald Trump has done what communists and other opponents for decades have been trying to do.

“He has dismantled US rule over the world. Instead, we see the establishment of a new world power regime. And that is something we should react against; after all, a world power order is all about the conditions for human life where we are. That’s why this election matters,” Fredrik Reinfeldt said during the conference.

“Will it continue for four more years with a dismantling of the world order that — not least — this party has struggled to maintain?” he continued his speculations.

Reinfeldt argued that the “global answers” are needed because so-called climate policy cannot be resolved through nationalism.

“It is therefore necessary that world trade not be about putting one’s country first and by ordering protectionism in the flow of trade. Just remember what it challenges.”

The Great Replacement: An Introductory Course

When I started watching the first of the two videos below, I thought of titling this post “Counterjihad 101”. However, these clips are about so much more than the jihad — they address the instrumentalization of Islamic Jihad in the service of the destruction of traditional Western nation-states. We (and by “we”, I mean all Europeans and the descendants of the European diaspora) are being intentionally subjected to an invasion from the (mostly Muslim) Third World, which will replace us, or dilute us through miscegenation (such a politically incorrect word!) so that we will no longer exist as distinct peoples.

When I encountered the second video, however, I realized how well it dovetails with the first, even though it approaches the topic from a very different angle.

I invite you to watch both of them, and see how they arrive at such similar conclusions from their different perspectives.

N.B.: I don’t know anything about the Scandza Forum, but I assume — based upon some of the people who support it, and the sufferers from the Screaming Nazi Heeber-Jeebers who decry it — that some of the organizers and speakers are “white nationalists” who believe doubleplus ungood things. But I don’t care — what the speaker featured here says is right on the money. I don’t disagree with anything he says.

The first video was recorded when Rasmus Paludan, the founder and leader of the Stram Kurs (Hard Line) party in Denmark, visited Washington DC last month. He interviewed Maj. (ret.) Stephen Coughlin, the author of Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad, about what is happening now in Europe and the USA:

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.Explanatory Memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood, 1991

Both men agree that the Jihad is being exploited by the Powers That Be to enforce the Narrative and deconstruct the native populations of Western nations. The discussion presents a useful compare-and-contrast between what is happening in the USA and what is happening in Denmark:

The second video, also recorded last month, shows Mark Collett speaking at the Scandza Forum in Copenhagen:

Beginning from their disparate points of view, all three men arrive at exactly the same place.

Rasmus Paludan in Canada, Part Five

The following video is the fifth in a series of excerpts from Vlad’s interview with Rasmus Paludan, the founder and leader of the Danish party Stram Kurs (Hard Line), in Quebec last month (previously: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4).

In this segment Mr. Paludan focuses on the events of last April, when he and his party were launched into prominence (and almost into the Danish Parliament) by the ultra-violent reactions of Muslims to his Koran-burning demonstrations in culturally enriched areas of Copenhagen.

Our Religion Prohibits Us From Saving Our Country

Our Swedish correspondent LN has translated an op-ed from Det Goda Samhället, and includes this introduction:

It is no wonder that Europe —Denmark first — is building walls around Sweden, this crime-ridden politically correct funhouse.

Here follows a light-hearted article about today’s Sweden, written by the well-known cultural personality Patrik Engellau. The comments in square brackets have been added by the translator.

The translated essay:

Our Religion Prohibits Us From Saving Our Country

by Patrik Engellau

The other day, my Portuguese teacher said it was a thing she thought was strange.

In the past, she said, it seemed as if you Swedes believed that your problems with school and immigration and so on would disappear by themselves or in some magical way turn into successes.

“Now you don’t think so anymore. Now you just stand there and look at your problems without taking any countermeasures. For me, it is impossible to understand,” she said.

“By the way,” she went on, “I do believe in all your theories of the political power and the welfare-industrial-complex with all its state-funded activists, but this must be about something else. You seem to have left the world of rational explanations.

“You see the train approaching but refuse to get off the rails. I’m sorry, but to me it almost seems like a kind of self-harm behavior.”

Reluctantly, I had to agree with her.

It is no longer possible to explain Sweden on the basis of natural, selfish interests of various power holders and their activist lapdogs [Swedish: lydhund — compulsively obedient dog].

We are facing here another mental syndrome, in which self-interest has been subordinated to some other higher purpose.

In the old days, it was considered nobler for sea captains to go down with a sinking ship with the rest of the crew than to save themselves.

This behavior pattern was perpetuated by Alec Guinness in a 1949 movie [Kind Hearts and Coronets] in which he stands on the command bridge and salutes as the ship goes to the bottom:

“Well,” said my Portuguese teacher thoughtfully, “you mean that Sweden is like that ship and the Swedish leaders are like Alec Guinness who chooses to go down with the ship?”

“No, our leaders do not have Alec Guinness’s refined nobility,” I replied, “but it is nevertheless in this vein that we must seek an explanation.

“Our leaders are more primitive. Their actions are motivated not by noble feelings of duty, but by a more raw and unarticulated trepidation in the face of something sacred.”

“Like savages in front of a totem pole?” suggested my teacher.

Besieged in Nørrebro

When Rasmus Paludan was staging a Koran-burning in a culturally enriched district of Copenhagen a few days ago, he was quickly surrounded by angry people who disagreed with him. His bodyguards regarded the threat against him to be so great that they evacuated him from the area. A brief account of what happened is here (in Danish).

Before we get to that story, let’s look at Part 4 of Vlad’s interview with Mr. Paludan at last month’s retreat in Quebec (previously: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3). In it the controversial Koran-burner describes the series of events that led up to incidents like the one in Nørrebro last weekend.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading these videos:

The district of Nørrebro is just west of central Copenhagen. It is primarily inhabited by an unholy mixture of leftist activists, anarchists, and Muslim immigrants. All three groups were well-represented in the attempted attack on Rasmus Paludan that led to his hasty evacuation.

Police in one of the vehicles were so desperate to escape the area that they plowed into some of the angry anti-Paludan demonstrators, running over one of their bicycles:

Hurry! Make Me a Swedish Citizen So I Can’t Be Deported!

I reported a couple of days ago about a “Swedish” politician named Rashad Alasaad who was exposed as a people-smuggler. Mr. Alasaad allegedly ran a lucrative business arranging for the illegal migration of “refugees” from Greece to Sweden.

The article below from Samhällsnytt is a follow-up report on the Alasaad case. Many thanks to Kronans Martell for the translation:

Court orders Migration Board to make up their mind regarding the human trafficker’s application for Swedish citizenship, “as soon as possible”

Samhällsnytt continues to follow the leads on the Social Democrat politician, also known as the human trafficker, Rashad Alasaad. Today (Oct 4, 2019) the Immigration Court has ordered the Immigration Board in Malmö to make a decision concerning his application to become a Swedish citizen, and as soon as possible. “ I want them to make a positive decision.”

Yesterday Samhällsnytt disclosed new materials about the Social Democrat human trafficker of Ljungby, Rashad Alasaad. Among other things, we exposed that Alasaad has owned several properties in Sweden since 2018. The values of those properties don’t match his declared income. After a journalistic investigation by the news outlet Expressen, led by Kassem Hamade, which exposed Alasaad, the border police have started an investigation based on suspicion of human trafficking.

In addition, we were also able to disclose new information showing that Alasaad is a Syrian citizen who has been granted a Swedish residence permit. This situation lays the ground for the prosecutor to demand deportation if the police decided to press charges.

We can provide more information today. A very short time before Expressen made their investigation available to the public, Rashad Alasaad contacted the Migration Board on Wednesday demanding that they hurry up and make a decision regarding his application to become a Swedish citizen.

Alasaad was probably aware of the ongoing investigation by Expressen by the time (September 25th) he submitted his request to the Migration Board. He realized what consequences would be of such an investigation if it were to become public, especially consequences affecting his application for Swedish citizenship. If his request were to be approved, he would be certain that he wouldn’t be deported.

Compulsory Cultural Enrichment

Sweden’s Ylva Johansson wants to compel EU member states to take their share of migrants. However, the means by which she would enforce this policy of “compulsory solidarity” are still unclear.

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

Ylva Johansson on immigration: Demands “compulsory solidarity”

October 7, 2019

Sweden’s intended EU Commissioner Ylva Johansson (S) calls for “compulsory solidarity” among EU countries concerning immigration. But she is not very good at explaining the concept.

It was last week that Ylva Johansson appeared before the European Parliament.

She is the appointed Swedish EU Commissioner, responsible for EU migration policy. But her reply was so awful that she experienced a backlash during the hearing in the European Parliament.

Returning, she had no concrete answers to the questions, but wanted to come back later. It was not approved. She is now called “Come Back” Commissioner.

But on yesterday’s SVT [Swedish State TV] “Agenda” she had some answers. EU countries should be forced to “solidify” immigration.

“I don’t even know if I did anything wrong.” She said in the program that she was one of the few commissioners who were not approved. “This is a difficult portfolio. The parties are far apart and there are many emotions. My mission is to find a compromise.”

When asked how to get recalcitrant EU states to accept asylum seekers from the Third World, she replied that she should talk to all countries, pointing out:

“I think it is imperative that we have compulsory solidarity among EU member states. If we have a common external border, we must have a system for how we manage and distribute refugees. We need compulsory solidarity among the countries, yes.”

However, she cannot explain exactly what “compulsory solidarity” means. She wants to “return” to it later, she explains. But it should not be voluntary whether one wants to be part of a common asylum policy. When program director Anders Holmberg asks her if it means that all countries must open their borders to asylum seekers, she cannot answer.

Pippi Longdreadlocks

It appears that the latest madness to infect the Country Formerly Known as Sweden will include a nappy-headed Pippi Longstocking, the Brothers Lionheart in blackface, and various other pickaninnies where blond-haired blue-eyed children once held the stage.

Many thanks to our Swedish correspondent LN for translating this report from Svegot Media:

‘Astrid Lindgren’s World’ is looking for non-Swedish child actors

by the Editorial Board
October 2, 2019

Pippi Longstocking, Emil in Lönneberga and the children in Bullerbyn. Symbols for Sweden and Swedish for many. At ‘Astrid Lindgren’s World’ in Vimmerby, thousands of children each year see Astrid Lindgren’s most beloved fairy tales played by child actors. But this is too Swedish, it seems, and therefore the amusement park advertises for non-Swedish child actors for the coming season.

On the website you can read: “In Astrid Lindgren’s World visitors step right into the world of fairy tales and become a direct part of it. Here the children and their families get to meet, talk and play with the characters from Astrid Lindgren’s books.”

Imagine seeing Madicken and Emil with their own eyes! These fairy-tale characters who suddenly step out of the pages of the books and now stand in front of the children as large as life. Popular and unforgettable summer fun for thousands of families with children. But in the future, the children may be forced to ask their parents why Pippi is not red-haired and why the Brothers Lionheart are dark-skinned.

It is because the lineup at Astrid Lindgren’s world is too Swedish, and in a job advertisement they are now trying to rectify this.

teater@astridlindgrensvarld.se

Swedish children do not really have the “ethnic and cultural diversity” that Astrid Lindgren’s World demands.

“Astrid Lindgren’s World wants to take advantage of the qualities that ethnic and cultural diversity bring to the business, and therefore we are especially looking for you who, in addition to the formal requirements, can enrich us with this.”

The Unpersoning of Tommy Robinson (Full Version)

A couple of days ago I posted a five-minute excerpt from a Danish TV program about Facebook’s diligent efforts to scrub even the mention of Tommy Robinson’s name from its platform. The video below shows the entire 20-minute segment from the program.

As a matter of interest, I’m told that the Danish TV channel posted this video on Facebook, and it was immediately taken down. Then they mounted a vigorous protest, and it was reinstated. Ordinary Facebook users don’t have that kind of clout, of course, so there’s nothing they can do.

Notice that the Facebook snoid equates Tommy Robinson with Ratko Mladić, the Bosnian Serb military commander who was convicted of genocide and sentenced to life in prison.

Beloved Foreigners… And Friends

Ethnic Swedes, the indigenous population, are now just one of many peoples who inhabit a rural area in northern Europe called Sweden. Within a few decades the white Swedes will be a minority in a country that was once their own.

Our Swedish correspondent LN has translated this article from Samhällsnytt about the catastrophic results of Sweden’s immigration policies, and how some now openly allow themselves to discuss the coming Swedish demographic catastrophe:

“No human right for Swedes to recognize themselves in their own country”

Swedes have no right to demand to be able to recognize themselves in their country or society. Instead, they should be grateful that the country is being taken over by immigrant groups such as the Assyrians in Södertälje.

This was claimed by the newspaper Sydsvenskan‘s cultural writer Rakel Chukri, who herself is of Assyrian origin, in a debate at the Book Fair.

The big book fair in Gothenburg is currently underway. Although national-friendly actors such as the paper Nya Tider [New Times] are now barred from participating, the infected immigration debate was not entirely avoided. After decades of criticism of the negative consequences of immigration policy by the Sweden Democrats/SD and the new alternative media, the critical debate has gradually started to reach the editorial boards of the old media as well. What first became sanitized to mention was that immigration costs a lot of money, something that was long denied.

More permissible to discuss consequences of immigration other than just the economic ones

But recently the door was also opened to discuss other aspects of Sweden’s transformation into an ethnically segregated country, topics previously considered to belong to the domain of racism. The phenomenon that is usually called “white flight” — that is, Swedes move out when immigrants move in — does not solely have socio-economic explanations.

Just as migrants associate with their own groups, Swedes also see a value in living with people from their own ethnic group. Ivar Arpi from Svenska Dagbladet broke new ground in the mainstream media when he recently broached what ordinary people, Sweden Democrats/SD and alternative media have been talking about for decades — it is demographics, rather than the economy, that is prompting more and more voters to turn to the SD.

Opinion gap between the people and the journalists

Ivar Arpi received a lot of praise from discerning people for leaving ajar this door into the establishment media. The initiative was less popular within the largely left-wing culture and among elite journalists.

Don’t Even Mention Tommy’s Name!

Facebook’s latest updated “community standards” seem to preclude even the mention of Tommy Robinson’s name. Violators of the rule may have their posts summarily taken down, and their accounts suspended.

Danish television is less politically correct than most outlets west of the Iron Curtain, so the Facebook representative in the clip below has to face some (mildly) critical questioning.

Rasmus Paludan in Canada, Part Three

This is the third installment of Vlad’s interview with Rasmus Paludan, the leader of the Stram Kurs (“Hard Line”) party in Denmark. (Previously: Part 1, Part 2.)

In this portion of the interview Mr. Paludan discusses his decision to ignore the advice of the security service, and say whatever he liked at his anti-Islam demonstrations. Vlad includes a few video excerpts of the resulting riots.

Is Sweden Going Under for the Third Time?

The immigration-induced crisis in Sweden seems to have passed the point of no return. In many urban areas the police are unable to exert their authority. The violence and lawlessness have now spilled over into less culturally enriched areas, and have become so serious that even some of the mainstream media outlets have begun to take note.

Fjordman has written about the situation at Snaphanen (in dansk or norsk; I can’t tell them apart): Er Sverige ødelagt? (Is Sweden destroyed?)

Our Swedish correspondent LN has translated three articles about the catastrophic failure of Sweden. The first one is from Samtiden:

Sweden is “a complete political failure,” writes Janne Josefsson. “State power is being hollowed out bit by bit,” writes Wilhelm Agrell.

Now Both Janne Josefsson and Wilhelm Agrell Raise the Alarm: Sweden is Going Under

by Dick Erixon
September 13, 2019

Two heavy public opinion makers, the journalist Janne Josefsson and the peace researcher Wilhelm Agrell, each in his morning newspaper, have today emerged with an emergency call that Sweden is undergoing violence and lawlessness.

Is that violence now approaching the establishment events in the media and academia?

The stench of powder smoke

Janne Josefsson writes in the DN Chronicle, “It is gunpowder smoke in the world’s best country” that Multiculturalism has created de facto apartheid in Sweden. Less than one percent of pupils have Swedish as a mother tongue in the Shumila school at Hisingen in Gothenburg — maybe four pupils out of 500.

Sweden is no longer a country; it is different worlds, and “a politically perfect failure”. But once the denial begins to dissolve, the government and Morgan Johansson (S) [interior minister] are being labeled “abominable beasts”. The words get worse: “The less they know how to solve the social situation in the country,” Josefsson writes.

The schools are “transmission belts” that deliver boys to the criminal gangs. At Shumila School, 26 percent of the boys were prosecuted for a crime within a few years of completing school. “We get the society we deserve,” concludes Josefsson.

Sweden’s internal armed conflict is sinking it

The state’s monopoly on violence no longer exists, the professor in intelligence analysis Wilhelm Agrell writes in a debate article in SvD [see the bottom of this post].

“We must act to save the country.”

He writes that “the phenomenon of internal armed conflict can help highlight the dynamics of an event that has great destructive potential for a society. In the typical internal armed conflict, different groups are fighting each other and to varying degrees a state power that has completely or partially lost its monopoly on violence.”

In such situations, violence escalates, as it is easier than reversing it. The latches have been released and the violence has its own dynamic. Agrell cites Lebanon in the 1980s and the Balkans in the ‘90s as examples where internal armed conflict has escalated to war. In an internal armed conflict, social functions break down and those who are able to flee the country.

Agrell believes that the development of violence has been uninterrupted for too long because both citizens and politicians have regarded Sweden as a safe country. The authorities are very slow to begin to consider serious organized crime as a social threat. “The violence is not only becoming more brutal and escalating, the victims may be anyone who happens to get in the way or anyone who is perceived to stand in the way…” State power has been cut out bit by bit and no longer exists. The country is broken. He believes that it is “the destructive dynamics of the internal armed conflict that we need to pay attention to and fight for if the country, the country in which we want to live, is to be saved.” Otherwise it will quickly get worse.

Will the government wake up now?

Will the government, with its support parties, wake up and take note of the fact that people within the establishment groups are now also sounding the alarm that the situation is extremely serious and acute? My answer is: no. You do not have the mental and intellectual capacity to understand that Sweden is no longer like it was twenty years ago. You also do not want to understand. You are afraid to comprehend reality. Therefore, they will continue to estimate while at the same time throwing out those who warn of the development — which of course mainly applies to the Sweden Democrats, who are ten to twenty years ahead of everyone else.

To acknowledge the situation is to acknowledge that Jimmie Åkesson is right. They would rather let Sweden go down than do that.

The only people who can break the deadlock are the Swedish people. They can show who they sympathize with. An edge in the opinion polls is probably the only thing that can induce the political powers to begin to take action.

Rasmus Paludan in Canada, Part Two

This is the second installment of Vlad’s interview with Rasmus Paludan, the founder and leader of the Stram Kurs (“Hard Line”) party in Denmark, in Quebec earlier this month. (Part 1 is here.)

As the interview continues, you’ll hear him recount the series of events that led to his having armed police bodyguards accompany him whenever he ventures out of his apartment.
