This post is really just an excuse to celebrate the Danes. It’s one country Shakespeare got wrong:
This isn’t breaking news, but it’s a welcome account nonetheless.
For many years Denmark has been voted the happiest country. It’s probably true and this direct approach to problems is a good example of their in-born cheerfulness. [No, Søren Kierkegaard doesn’t count.]
Besides being a handsome bunch, the Danish have a delightful sense of humor. Not to mention their cigarettes, beer, 1,000 kinds of real licorice, and countless candles in the cold shivering dark of winter. Danes exemplify the maxim about lighting a candle instead of cursing the darkness, though they probably do both.
Remember that video clip collection made of Obama’s clichéd encomia about small countries? BHO said of each nation in turn, as they appeared at state visits to the White House, that they all “punched above their weight”. The Danish creator of that video kept a straight face, making Obama look even more vacuous than usual.
Now that Denmark is sending its law-breaking “refugees” to an island off Copenhagen, they can join us in having their very own Gitmo. So congratulations, Denmark! But admit it: if you didn’t have that handy escape valve of the bridge leading to Sweden, the island would become over-crowded right quick.
Nonetheless, three cheers for the Danes! When I die, I’m coming back as a Dane.
Three Africans in custody for gang rape in Björn’s Garden [a park in Stockholm]
November 12, 2018
There are two Somalis and an Eritrean man now in custody for the rape of a woman in Björn’s garden in Stockholm on Friday. They are also detained for robbery.
It was at midnight between Friday and Saturday that a woman contacted police and told them that she had been raped in Björn’s Garden at Medborgarplatsen in Söder, Stockholm.
The event is classified as aggravated rape, and the victim is a 20-year-old woman.
Immediately after the incident, however, the police were able to arrest three perpetrators who are now in custody.
This concerns three African men who are 18, 20 and 29, respectively. They were detained on Sunday on probable cause, suspected of aggravated rape and robbery.
According to information obtained by Fria Tider, one of them needs an Arabic interpreter and another for Somali.
Two of the men are citizens of Somalia and the third of Eritrea. It therefore concerns newly-arrived immigrants.
The district court’s document indicates that the rape occurred during the space of half an hour between 11:15pm and 11:45pm on Friday. The robbery had to have taken place at the same time, and in the same place as the rape.
All were arrested at 12:13am on Saturday, minutes after the rape occurred. The prisoners are in custody at Södermalm.
Rasmus Paludan is a Danish lawyer and anti-sharia activist whose videos have been featured here a number of times in the past.
In the video below we can see Mr. Paludan talking to people in the town of Hedehusene, west of Copenhagen. A culture-enricher then confronts the lawyer, and when the former is prevented from launching a physical attack, he throws a lighter at Mr. Paludan’s head.

Cowardly Judges Pander To Islam
by Morten Messerschmidt
If the Muslims’ favorite prophet Muhammad was brought to trial today for his behavior in Arabia in the 6th and 7th centuries, the charges would be armed robbery and assault, gang violence, abduction, murder, camel theft, arson, extortion, bigamy, rape and pedophilia.
He would end up killing time together with Peter Lundin and Peter Madsen [two savage and psychopathic murderers currently behind bars — translator]. In the United States he would have received so many sentences that he would not be released until the end of the 22nd century.
But the same verdicts would also be levied upon Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun and the Scandinavian Viking chieftains, who for centuries plagued Europe’s Christian civilization — until they themselves became Christians.
One must be careful to judge the past by today’s moral scale.
But can it be made punishable by law to utter a reminder of the past in order to become wiser in the present? Should courts have the power to punish citizens when they point towards and recount what has actually been done in the history of humanity?
“Yes” was the conclusion by an Austrian court in 2009, and “yes” was the conclusion by a majority of the 47 judges sitting on the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg the other day.
A woman in Austria had been sentenced for blasphemy for having “violated the religious peace”. This was the verdict she laid before the Court of Human Rights with reference to the European Convention on Human Rights, guaranteeing her the right to freedom of expression. However, the judges agreed with the Austrian court. As a result she now has to pay a symbolic fine.
In 2009 Elisabeth Wolff held a series of courses, a kind of ‘Islam for Beginners’. I do not know the quality of the course. However, she was so thorough that she included the fact that Islam’s founder Muhammad at the age of 53 married a 6-year-old girl and had sexual relations with her when she was 9. Full stop. These facts are verifiable.
The relationship is carefully and frequently described in Islamic Hadith, which, next to the Koran, is the holiest scripture of the Muslims. The Hadith contain accounts of Muhammad’s life and deeds, often in the most intimate and brutal details. Details that I will omit here in order to spare the reader. It should noted that believing Muslims are not ashamed of the Hadith; on the contrary, they considers them a recommendation for how Muslim men should live based on the exemplary behavior of Muhammad.
Attack allegedly occurred next to the Central Bridge in Stockholm
Afghans raped 25-year-old girl — threatened to kill her
Two immigrants have been charged with the aggrevated rape of a 15-year-old girl under the Central Bridge in Stockholm earlier this year. The prosecutor is also instituting deportation proceedings against the men, who require a Dari (language) interpreter.
It was on September 2, 2018, under an onramp to the Central Bridge between Stadhusbrun and Klarabergsviadukten in Stockholm that a 15-year-old girl is believed to have been raped by two immigrants.
One suspect is believed to have been born in 2001 and is a citizen of Afghanistan. The other is of unknown age, and information on his citizenship is missing. Both, however, require interpreters in Dari.
Regarding the other person’s age, the prosecutor has requested assessment by the National Medical Board though “bone image analysis according to the district court’s decision on body inspection.”
According to the complaint, which Fria Tider has obtained, the men even threatened to kill or injure the girl.
The elements [of the crime] should be considered aggravated in view of [the victim’s] age, and because more than one person attacked, according to the complaint. The prosecutor, who in turn calls it an outrageous rape, also points out that the abuse was carried out in an exposed, water-borne and urban space characterized by concrete and traffic routes from which the plaintiff could hardly escape, and that the girl hyperventilated, cried and was shaking.
The prosecutor also demands expulsion from Sweden for life, and that the two immigrants be completely forbidden from returning here.
“It is important that at least two interpreters in Dari be on hand and be posted immediately with regard to the current lack of interpretation,” is stated in the district court document.
The accused acknowledge parts of the course of events, but deny any crimes.
Yesterday I posted a translated article about the comparative demographics of ethnic Danes and culture-enrichers in Denmark. Based on the graph above, I projected a majority of culture-enrichers in Denmark by the year 2103.
However, there was a problem with my calculations: my assumption that the number of immigrants and their descendants in Denmark was 250,000, or about 5% of the population. An alert commenter named T Ross pointed out that the immigrant population mentioned in the article — which I somehow neglected to notice — was actually 499,903.
Although that number is almost twice as much as my assumption, it doesn’t mean that the culture-enrichers will pull ahead earlier than 2103. The higher number means the annual rate of increase is slightly more than half of what I used: 1.79%.
I reran the software and produced the new table of figures below. The rest of my assumptions remain the same — see yesterday’s post for the details.
As you can see, the Danes get an additional forty-five years before the culture-enrichers outnumber them. They won’t be in the minority until 2148:
Nobody is loopier than the Swedes, not even Californians. But I shouldn’t badmouth the good ladies of Gothenburg — maybe coffee and sandwiches really will turn these criminal “youths” into law-abiding Swedish citizens.
I’m looking forward to a follow-up report from Gothenburg in four months when the trial period is over.
Many thanks to Tania Groth for translating this article from the Swedish outlet Samhällsnytt:
Criminal gangs in Gothenburg to be stopped with coffee and sandwiches
Nordstan has for a long time been a gathering place for what Göteborgs Posten describes as “people with social problems and youth at risk,” but which residents of the city more legitimately call criminal immigrant gangs. Now, however, they want to put a stop to this. Social and law enforcement agencies and organizations have agreed to buy a coffee bus where anti-social and criminal youth are offered the option of drinking a cup of coffee instead of robbing, stealing and selling narcotics.
The hope now is that the coffee bus, also known as the “Security Bus”, will “contribute to peace outside the shopping center on rough weekend nights.” The bus costs the better part of a million Swedish Crowns (out of a total of five) from the resources of the Social Resource Board that the non-profit organizations Fryshuset and Skyddsvärnet have received to launch a new ventures for “safety-creating activities”.
In addition to serving coffee, the bus will also provide a basis for “building relationships” with the antisocial and criminal immigrant gangs. It is hoped that this relationship-building will pilot young people will towards a more advisory and motivated dialogue.
The intention is that the coffee bus will primarily be in operation in the evenings and nights during weekends, and drive between various “messy places” in Gothenburg. An initial drive was made this past weekend.
Emma Forseth, a business developer at Skyddsvärnet, says that there should also be sandwiches available from the bus. The philosophy behind the initiative is “full people are calmer people.” With a hot cup of coffee and a sandwich in the stomach, it is believed that the inclination to commit crimes should decrease among the individuals within the target group.
Some of the gangs are so-called Moroccan street children who are in the country illegally. After the coffee and sandwich they would then be encouraged to go to a church for the homeless.
According to a report published in September, Sweden has moved into the world’s #2 slot for the per-capita number of reported rapes. It’s second only to South Africa — but rising fast.
Swedish feminists can explain away the statistics, of course — the weather is warmer, more women are willing to report being raped, etc., etc. Anything to avoid looking at the role played by cultural enrichment.
The following article was published last month by Dissidenter in a slightly different form:
Sweden — Number 2 in world rape ranking
The Spectator Index released the world rape report today which shows number of rapes per 100,000 women. Shockingly, the once-so-safe country Sweden is now #2 on the list with 63 rapes per 100,000 women. The small country which in the ‘80s and ‘90s was well known abroad for big brands like Volvo and Saab and safety has in recent years has seen peaking crime rates and a police force that can’t handle the number of reported rapes.
So what has happened to Sweden? If you ask the mainstream media and the left-wing reporters, the big increase in the number of rapes is due to the fact that women have suddenly started to report them. The 600% increase in the number of reported rapes is also, according to the left-wing journalists, due to “good weather”. If you look at the victims it is now in Sweden not only women being raped — since the big immigration from the Middle East 2015 young boys have started to be raped / gang-raped by refugees as a punishment, due to the culture in Afghanistan.
In Sweden the former top police chief Dan Eliasson didn’t want to comment on why the number of rapes has suddenly started to peak — but on Swedish television he did feel sorry for the perpetrator who had molested and raped a young girl severely; he wondered what bad things the refugee has been through in his home country that made him start to rape girls.
Sweden is starting to become a country where freedom of speech is no longer available and dissidents are being silenced by all means, from security police to being deleted from social media and banks shutting down their bank accounts.
Finally 1.1 million of the population voted in the election in September for a big change in immigration policy by giving the party Sverige Demokraterna (SD) their vote. However, since they only received approx 17% of the votes it is unlikely that they will be able to influence the immigration question.
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.
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 Mailhas 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’…]
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. 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. One opinion poll published a couple of months prior to the election gave them as much as 28.5% support. 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%. 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.
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.
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?”
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.
