Sweden: The Death of a Nation

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

Like a drunk the morning after a magnificent binge, Sweden is slowly waking up to the grim reality of the past few decades as a humanitarian superpower and the hangover is going to be of monstrous proportions.

The Swedes were a privileged people. Their hard-working Lutheran forefathers handed over to their keeping a wealthy, modern, homogeneous and well-functioning Scandinavian nation with one of the highest standards of living in the world. Their future was secured; they had all a people could wish for. And they completely squandered it.

The damage recent generations of Swedes have wreaked on their own country is almost beyond comprehension. Coming generations of Swedes will inherit a country in shambles and struggling with insurmountable problems. Ghettos, crime, segregation and ethnic strife are now the hallmarks of the once progressive nation. And perhaps the worst thing of all for the grandchildren of today’s Swedes: in the second half of this century they will in all likelihood be just one competing minority amongst many in what was once their own country. It will be a country no previous generations of Swedes would recognize — poor, shabby, Middle Eastern and African in appearance and dominated by Islam.

What went wrong for the Swedes was they became infected by what author Tom Wolfe called “radical chic”, revolutionary romanticism. The 1960s generation of spoiled middle-class rebels in their Che Guevara T-shirts completed their degrees in social sciences and feminist studies and went on to careers in politics, education and the civil service. Many of them went into media and journalism. Their solidarity with the oppressed of the third world knew no bounds, and from their positions of power and influence they could put their revolutionary romanticism into practice.

Sweden’s coffers were opened to third world revolutionary movements and their charismatic and radical young leader, Prime Minister Olof Palme, flirted with left-wing dictators and subversive groups across the globe. It was a heady time. By decree Sweden became multicultural, the borders were thrown open to mass immigration and the decay started. The fervor with which the revolutionary romantic elites pursued their goal was practically religious in character and tolerated no dissent. Politicians promised voters that mass immigration enriched Sweden; it brought economic and cultural wealth and made their country a much better place. State television and the press abandoned their critical role and trumpeted the same official message.

A few cautious dissenters raised warning voices but were soon shouted down. They were hung out in the media as “racists” and “xenophobes”. Ridiculed and vilified, they lost friends and jobs and were sometimes even hounded out of the country.

One early and high profile dissident was the university lecturer and Swedish member of parliament for the Liberal party Mauricio Rojas, himself an immigrant to Sweden from Chile. As the Liberal party spokesman on refugee and integration matters, he saw the damage uncontrolled third world immigration was doing to Sweden and warned the Swedes the path they were following would inevitably lead to disaster unless there was serious public discussion and radical reform. The retaliation was swift. Publicly branded a “xenophobe”, he was held up to public derision in the media. He received death threats from left-wing extremists and was put under 24 hour guard by Säpo, the Swedish security police. The campaign of character assassination continued unabated for months afterwards and demands were made for his removal from parliament. Unable to live in the country any longer Mauricio Rojas left Sweden forever and took up a position as a university lecturer in Spain.[1]

Robert Ménard: “The problem in those neighborhoods is Islam!”

Robert Ménard is the mayor of the town of Béziers in the South of France and a member of the Front National. He has been featured here numerous times in the past, most recently during the controversy over a Christmas crèche in the Béziers town hall back in December.

In the following clip from French TV, Mr. Ménard takes issue with the idea that the difficulties in the “sensitive urban zones” are due to failures in urban planning — i.e. too many high-rises, not enough job-training programs, inadequate infrastructure, etc. Instead he points out the primary problem, which nobody else dares mention: Islam.

The discussion mentions the planning programs of Jean-Louis Borloo, who is “a French politician and was the leader of the Union of Democrats and Independents, and French Minister for Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development and Town and Country Planning between 2007 and 2010.” [Wikipedia]

A Birthday Cake With 200 Candles and Blood-Red Icing

Today is the 200th birthday of Karl Marx. The occasion is being commemorated in Trier, the great philosopher’s birthplace in Rhineland-Palatinate.

Numerous dignitaries are on hand for the ceremonies, including Jean-Claude “Drunker” Juncker, the president of the European Commission. Mr. Juncker will give a speech and unveil an enormous bronze statue of the Father of Communism, which was donated to Trier for the occasion by the Red Chinese. The unveiling and speechifying may already have taken place: it’s late afternoon now in Trier.

As our own modest contribution to the joyous celebration, we are unveiling this special meme-orial image of the paladins of Communism:

I couldn’t resist digitally modifying the above photo, which accompanied a tweet from Poland Daily:

“The President of the #EuropeanCommission, Jean-Claude #Juncker, has decided to attend the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. The decision is a slap in the face of the almost 100 million EU citizens who were forced to live under communist occupation after 1945. pic.twitter.com/Mqzyc4bTlB”
https://t.co/Mqzyc4bTlB

For a dissenting point of view on the great prophet from Trier — who now rests peacefully in a cemetery in Highgate — here are excerpts from an op-ed in the Irish Times. Patrick Smyth reminds us not to conflate Mr. Marx with the tiny minority of violent extremists who have hijacked a great political philosophy and commit atrocities in its name:

Karl Marx’s insights retain their clout and relevance

Two centuries later, the ‘father of communism’ should not be judged on disciples’ excesses

by Patrick Smyth in Brussels

His view over Brussels’s magnificent Grand Place from La Maison du Cygne was a vivid architectural representation of what he was trying to write. History as class struggle.

The tall gothic and baroque guild houses, an expression of the rise to pre-eminence of the merchant bourgeoisie, and the town hall spoke of municipal power and wealth. And surrounded by a city teeming with the poor and hungry. . .

An impoverished Karl Marx, barely 30, spent three years here from 1846.

And in the back room of what is now one of Brussels’ most chic restaurants, with friend Friedrich Engels, he laboured over their most important work, The Manifesto of the Communist Party, part-groundbreaking philosophical and historical thesis, but above all a call to action that would reverberate around the world.

Two hundred years ago next Saturday, Marx was born in the small German town of Trier, where EU commission president Jean-Claude Juncker will deliver a speech for the birthday unveiling of a 5.5m statue of the local boy, a gift from the People’s Republic of China.

“Nobody can deny that Karl Marx is a figure who shaped history in one way or the other,” a commission spokeswoman defensively insisted. “Not speaking about him would come close to denying history.”

His intellectual legacy is everywhere. Last week with a laugh, a senior Irish diplomat described to me the “mao dun“ — Chinese for “internal contradiction” — at the heart of a commission proposal. Doomed, he was suggesting, like capitalism and its contradictions, to the dustbin of history.

Breitscheidplatz: The Story of Anis Amri as a Lone Offender

The following essay by Beatrix von Storch from Freie Welt has been translated by Anton, who includes an extended afterword with additional material.

Breitscheidplatz: The story of Anis Amri as a lone offender

by Beatrix von Storch, Member of the German Bundestag

The public reaction after a physical attack by an Arab refugee is actually always the same: this was a lone perpetrator. No connection with other crimes, no connection with cultural origin, no connection with Islam.

The terrorist attack carried out by the Tunisian Islamist Anis Amri on December 19, 2016 at the Berlin Breitscheidplatz was evaluated in exactly the same manner. Even after it was clear that Amri had excellent contacts with the Salafist network in Dortmund, Hildesheim and Berlin, and went there and out, the individual scenario was only slightly doubted.

German Islamist scene

Shortly after his arrival in Germany, Amri established contact with the group surrounding the Salafist preacher Abu Walaa in Dortmund and Hildesheim. That they never talked about a possible attack on the “infidels” is hard to imagine.

Amri also expressed abstract ideas and fantasies to the police informer working for the state criminal investigation office of North Rhine-Westphalia on a car trip to Berlin. In the process, Amri bragged about his contacts with France, from where he could ‘easily arrange for a Kalashnikov’.

Contact with France

This alleged contact has now been revealed by the French authorities. A few days ago it became known that Islamist Clement B., who was arrested in mid-2017, had frequent personal and telephone contact with Anis Amri. The arrest of the French citizen uncovered several firearms and three kilogrammes of explosives. He is suspected of planning an attack prior to the presidential election in 2017.

Italian Raid

At the end of March 2018, in a police raid in Italy, five suspected Tunisian Islamists were arrested who allegedly had contact with Anis Amri. According to police, it is very likely that Amri had obtained counterfeit documents from this network for his stay in Germany.

Three other Tunisians who had direct contact with Amri had already been deported from Italy at the beginning of 2017. Although there are no direct indications that these contact persons were directly involved in the execution of the attack, the links within the European Islamist scene will have played a role in the preparation of the attack.

For the newly established committee of inquiry in the Bundestag, of which I am a member for the AfD parliamentary group, this means that those relevant acts within the neighbouring European countries are also of great importance and should accordingly be included within the investigation.

ISIS backer in North Africa gives instructions

An obvious direct contact with fighters of the so-called[1] Islamic State in Libya was already established by the Federal Office of Criminal Investigation in February 2016. At that time, Amri was sent several audio files in which the background of machine gunfire and grenade strikes were heard.

Amanda’s Tale

Our Swedish correspondent Svenne Tvaerskaegg has compiled this account of a sordid incident that is sadly all too typical of what Modern Multicultural Sweden has become.

Amanda’s Tale

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

One afternoon a young Swedish girl, 14 years old and on the threshold of womanhood, was out exploring her growing independence in the adult world she was approaching. Her small town in central Sweden was safe at any time of day or night for youngsters strolling along the tidy streets lined by bright shops and middle-class villas, so her parents weren’t worried. She was looking for new adventures, and now that she had started to notice boys and boys has started to notice her, who knew what excitement she might find?

Amanda (not her real name — that is what the newspapers called her afterwards) went into a McDonald’s restaurant and caught sight of a young man she had seen before. He was a nice-looking young man, one of the interesting and exciting newcomers from distant and exotic lands who had recently come to her sleepy town. She knew all about the dark-eyed and handsome young men starting to make their appearance in her safe little world. She had learned all about them in school. They were our new friends, her teacher told her. “They have escaped from war and persecution to the safety of Sweden and we must show them kindness and understanding. They are just like us and they need our help.”

Amanda was intrigued. She would love to meet one of these newcomers and have him for a friend.

Amanda sat down next to the young man and they started to chat while drinking their coffee. Soon they were joined by two of the young man’s friends, stylish and friendly youths with the same exotic background, and they made small talk together, smiling at the young Swedish girl, making her feel special. Amanda was flattered. She had made three new friends. They left the restaurant and went for a walk, laughing, talking, having fun. Amanda was relaxed and happy. Life was interesting and exciting; so much to see, so much to experience in a whole new world that was opening up for her.

They walked into a wooded area and the young men began whispering to each other in a language Amanda didn’t understand. For the first time Amanda felt uneasy. The further they walked the more the young men’s attitude changed. They became aggressive and began to grope her. Now Amanda was frightened and told them to stop but they continued. Suddenly one of the young men grabbed Amanda, dragged her to the ground and brutally raped her while his friends stood round laughing. When he was finished he stood up and uttered the words she will never forget: “She’s yours now,” he said to his friends. “You can do what you want with her.”

Send in the Idiots

Below is the latest essay from the inimitable Hans Heckel, this time on the financial shenanigans of the EU elites.

JLH, who translated the piece, includes this note:

This is an analysis of, among other things “European” versus “German,” a rather different view of Macron than we are getting here, and a continental view of educational “mainstreaming” (and fun with politically correct euphemisms).

The translated essay from Preußische Allgemeine Zeitung:

State of Fools

How the sand got into the gears, why we can’t waste time, and why the schools are expected to produce idiots.

The Satirical Week in Review

by Hans Heckel
April 21, 2018

Everything used to be simpler. 10, 20 or 30 years ago, when the EU wanted more money from German taxes, it only had express the wish to Bonn — later Berlin. The reply was friendly, and possibly with a solicitous query, “Could you use a little more?” The Bundestag politely stifled any objections. Basta.

Sand first drifted into these well-oiled gears with the save-the-euro shields. Resistance stirred within the Union [CDU/CSU], but even more within the FDP. Nonetheless, the party heads put their agenda through. For the Liberals [FDP], with a deadly result: So many FDP voters defected to the brand new AfD in the 2013 Bundestag elections that the FDP dropped out of parliament. When French President Emmanuel Macron announced his next big fishing expedition in German financial waters a year ago, the FDP remained reserved. Shortly thereafter it returned to the Bundestag with fanfare, while the Union fared badly and, to top it all off, the AfD took over as lead opposition.

That is the situation everyone has to adjust to. Everything mixed up.

Macron wants a European finance minister with an independent budget and a European currency fund. Further on the wish list of the southern European countries led by Paris are a bank union, a debt union and especially a common deposit protection fund through which Germans with savings accounts would help failed Italian banks.

Should the Grand Coalition simply agree to this, as it has done before, AfD and FDP would be the big winners. This calls for skillful handling. CDU/CSU say they want to put on the brakes. The Greens leader Annalena Baerbock sees this as sacrificing European solidarity, and so does the Euro-politician Elmar Brok and his party friend and EU commissioner, Günther Oettinger (“unacceptable”). Even the SPD has a part in the drama: Andrea Nahles is with Macron, while the new minister of finance, Olaf Scholz, on the contrary cites the doubt about what the skeptical voters would perceive and reward as a defense of German interests. To all the theatrics Angela Merkel says nothing, as usual.

From a distance, this looks like a real disagreement. And it is intended to, so that no one who voted for the Grand Coalition parties senses betrayal of his interests as a German taxpayer and savings account holder, and drifts into opposition.

Closer inspection reveals a significant detail. The critics within the Grand Coalition are only asking that satisfying Macron’s appetite, i.e., putting the Paris proposals into effect, should be slowed down. There is no question of a simple “No.”

In other words, the “critics” want to chop this indigestible entree into little bites and offer it to the German mouth piece by piece. That way, it won’t stick in the throat and the Germans will swallow it down. The end result is the same.

It works! So why are Brok, Baerbock and Co, so excited? It is the time problem. There may not be much time left for the bite-size method. Italy’s banks are teetering. Like the “Monte dei Paschi.” Which is said to have loaned an estimated 50 billion euros to people whose names no one knows. The word is, the money is as good as gone. At some point, the time will come when schlepping bankruptcy along will no longer work. Other Italo-banks are said to be deep in the debt morass — as good as done for. When there is a crash, which can happen at any time, someone has to pay the piper. And what does Macron need? He wants to make big reforms, but doesn’t have the money to soften it so his people don’t climb all over him. So he badly needs money, too.

There is no time to waste. Oettinger and Brok know that. They are sitting in Brussels and nervously watching the sweat-covered foreheads of their Italian colleagues.

And these two are Germans, which makes a significant difference. If an Italian politician goes to the EU, he acts as an Italian who wants to get as much from the EU as he can for Italy. If a German politician goes to Brussels, he acts as a “European,” who can get from Germany as much as he wants to for the EU.

As things are now, whenever the failing Italian banks go under, they should be “saved” by Rome or their Italian shareholders. What a scandal that would be! What an uproar! It would be good only for the populists. It would be far more “European” and far more “common-good” to take the money from a security fund made up of rock-solid German savings accounts. Right?

Against the Murdering, Thieving Hordes of Pakistanis

by El Inglés

Introduction

It will not have escaped the attention of anyone likely to read this essay that the last few years have seen a sharp increase in the severity of the problems created in European countries by Muslims. Developments have, we feel, reached a point where we need to commit the unforgivable offence of stating the obvious: certain populations currently resident in certain European countries need to leave. Given that they will not leave willingly, they will have to be forced out.

Of course, we are not so arrogant as to make any concrete suggestions as to who exactly these peoples might be in European countries other than our own. This is a matter for the respective peoples of those countries to decide for themselves: the Dutch in the Netherlands, the French in France, the Germans in Germany. Being British, we will limit ourselves to considering courses of action that should be taken by the British people. In this particular document, we advocate more specifically the driving out of the Pakistani Muslim diaspora of the United Kingdom. Readers should note that this term includes all people of Pakistani Muslim origin in the UK, irrespective of the citizenship they might hold.

We will start by looking at the country of Pakistan itself, in an attempt to root it more firmly in our minds. Here, we apologize in advance for any psychological damage inflicted upon our unsuspecting readers by this sudden, up-close-and-personal exposure to the horrors of this deeply unpleasant country. Spoiler alert: it is precisely the type of place one would expect, given the assiduously pestilential and malevolent diaspora it has bestowed upon us.

Having given the reader some sort of grounding in what Pakistan actually is, we will draw out certain key themes to demonstrate the cultural, religious and psychic continuity of Pakistanis in Pakistan and the Pakistani Muslim diaspora in the United Kingdom. This will allow us to illustrate what a damaging and contaminating presence they are. It is worth pointing out here that a small fraction of the population of Pakistan consists of non-Muslim groups such as Christians, Sikhs, and Hindus. These people are not the focus of our analysis; the term Pakistani should not be taken as referring to them unless specified; and, for what little it is worth, we extend to them our heartfelt sympathies that they should be exposed, day in, day out, to the tender mercies of Pakistani Muslims.

Next, we will lay out in some detail just what sort of policies we believe a future British government could and should implement in order to force out the Pakistani diaspora of the UK. Let us be clear — we are not engaging in some sort of blue-sky thinking about what the government could do in principle to achieve this objective. We are explicitly advocating everything we discuss in the section in question, unless we specify to the contrary. This point will become clearer during the relevant discussion.

Welcome to Pakistan

Such are the horrors and madness it encompasses that one must occasionally, as one reads about Pakistan and its multifarious peoples, stop and remind oneself that the country is, in fact, real; that it does, in fact, exist. It is not a satirical construct created to warn us of the dangers of certain courses of action, or modes of thought. Nor is it a light-hearted alien world dreamt up by the creators of a piece of science fiction. We know that it is real for two reasons: a) its people increasingly infest our own country, the United Kingdom, and logic dictates that they must have originated somewhere; and b) the current author actually read a book on Pakistan by way of basic research for this essay — Pakistan, A Hard Country.

Yes, reader! Lest you convince yourself that we writers are an effete and weak-willed bunch, we would point out that this particular writer read the best part of an entire book on the subject of this nasty, depressing dirthole. Such is his dedication to the cause of learning and reflection. Admittedly, he skipped most of the section on Balochistan, which was even more disturbing and depressing than the rest of the country. Nonetheless, the reader should not conclude on this basis that this author’s commitment to excellence in research is anything less than total.

Here I must apologize to the author of this reference work, one Anatol Lieven. He would doubtless be dismayed to discover that the fruit of his labours was to be used as fuel for the arguments of those who believe that the Pakistani population of the UK is a fifth column that deserves only to be driven out with all haste. This is, nonetheless, a pressing matter, and his sensibilities will not lead us to refrain from looking at Pakistan and its diaspora in the UK with a sceptical eye and rendering such judgement as we deem appropriate.

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

Let us then throw together a brief and eclectic country summary for Pakistan, a sort of through-the-looking-glass travel guide for those with an interest in the country. Pakistan came into existence in 1947, when British India was partitioned to create two new countries: India and Pakistan. That the two countries grew out of British imperial history has allowed the denizens of the Indian sub-continent to blame the white man for every affliction they have suffered in the last 70 years, even when the affliction in question consists of their murdering each other, with no obvious reluctance, over such things as: their freely-chosen religions; a cow; a pig or part thereof; damage inflicted upon a book; conflicting interpretations of the mutterings of a mad 7th-century Arab; illicit love between boy and girl; or, in extreme cases, illicit love between boy and livestock (though this last occurs relatively seldom and is usually hushed up before it hits Instagram). Verily, the powers of the white man are all-encompassing!

The proud new country of Pakistan consisted of modern-day Pakistan (then West Pakistan) and modern-day Bangladesh (then East Pakistan) as well. What, precisely, these two groups of people saw in each other that should have led them into this unhappy union remains a profound mystery. Regardless, the new country disintegrated in 1971 as the Bangladeshis (which is to say, the East Pakistanis) rose up against Pakistani (which is to say, West Pakistani) rule, were horribly brutalized, and were then rescued by the Indians. East Pakistan thus became Bangladesh, a country afflicted to this very day by two apparently insoluble problems: firstly, the country was built in the middle of a river; and secondly, it is full of Bangladeshis. Bangladesh and its UK diaspora will be subjected to analysis in future works. Here, we must satisfy ourselves with the observation that the country is not on our bucket list.

West Pakistan had now been shorn of its Bangladeshi ballast by an Indian Army that, though no match for the inscrutable Orientals on the other side of the Himalayas, could still at the very least give the bally Pakis what for. Before this second great partition of India, East and West Pakistan together had constituted a desperate, pre-modern, sectarian, tribal, Muslim hellhole that had a disconcerting tendency to be devastated by floodwaters coming down from the Tibetan plateau. Radically transformed by the war of 1971, West Pakistan (henceforth simply Pakistan) now stood ready to embrace a brighter future as a desperate, pre-modern, sectarian, tribal, Muslim hellhole that had a disconcerting tendency to be devastated by floodwaters coming down from the Tibetan plateau. Only one thing stood in its way: it was soon discovered that the country was full of Pakis, and therefore doomed.

The official languages of Pakistan are Urdu and English. The latter is the language of a now-despised group of ex-colonial overlords known to history as the British. The former is an Indian language brought to Pakistan around the time of Partition in 1947 by the northern Indian Muslim elites who, in a huff over not being granted what they saw as equal rights in what would have been a united India, engineered the creation of Pakistan itself. These people, referred to collectively as the Mohajirs, settled largely in the city of Karachi, which is the capital city of the state of Sindh. The Mohajirs, coming from India, are some of the truest believers in the political project that is Pakistan. Reader, one’s belief in the political project that is Pakistan must be profound indeed if one is actually motivated to go and live there; all the people who are already there want to live in Bradford.

Despite being the capital of Sindh, Karachi has few Sindhis in it, as it was largely overwhelmed by said Mohajirs. These people have come to be despised as invaders and oppressors by the Sindhis, who are numerically dominant in Sindh outside of Karachi. This means that both official languages of Pakistan are the languages of peoples despised as invaders by a substantial fraction of the population. Imagine Chinese having two official languages, English and Japanese, and you will be on the right lines.

The other main group of people in Karachi is the Pathans, whose generally florid and pleasant nature quickly reveals itself to those who peruse the news coming out of the Afghan-Pakistani border area. Other Pakistanis love the Pathans when they, the Pathans, are killing Americans in Afghanistan, and despise and fear them at all other times, viewing them as sensible Western peoples tend to view Pakistanis more generally: primitive, barbaric, fanatical, rapidly-reproducing savages with whom some sort of Ragnarok-style battle will eventually be inevitable. The Pathans are convinced they are an inoffensive, decent people who are inexplicably loathed despite their contribution to the vibrant, multicultural tapestries that are Karachi and Quetta.

Sweden: The Sleeper Awakes?

Our Swedish correspondent Svenne Tvaerskaegg reports on the earliest signs of a shift in the Multicultural winds in the World’s Only Humanitarian Superpower.

Sweden: The Sleeper Awakes?

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

Sweden, once regarded by many as perhaps the most modern and progressive country in the world, is having big problems with its image. News reports about no-go zones, riots, gang rapes and rising crime are appearing with alarming frequency in international media. Sweden has spent a lot of money and effort over the years in promoting itself as a ‘humanitarian superpower’, and the government is very worried about the rapid disintegration of their long-fostered superpower image.

After the Stockholm ghetto riots of 2013 broke out and raged for days across the TV screens of an incredulous world and headlines like “Stockholm burns as rioters battle police”[1] dominated the international press, Swedish authorities moved into full damage-control mode. The world’s attention was now fixed on Sweden, and it was going to be very difficult for them to continue presenting the Scandinavian country as a tranquil place of peace and harmony. Unfortunately for the Swedes, the news coming out of the country got progressively worse as the years passed.

But perception management can sometimes work wonders. Just give the statistics a bit of a massage, bend the truth a little — or quite a lot if need be — and all will be well. Swedish spin doctors via credulous journalists in left wing media assured international readers that the bombings, shootings and riots that were now exploding uncontrollably all over Sweden with alarming frequency really weren’t so bad at all. Such articles aren’t hard to find in The Guardian and Huffington Post and the like, but unfortunately for the spin doctors, reality is brutal and became impossible to hide no matter how hard they tried.[2]

Such was the desperation of the Swedish authorities that they have not been averse to outright lying in an attempt to play down the escalating crime and social disintegration plaguing the humanitarian superpower. But lying is a dangerous game that carries the risk of being found out, and the consequences can be humiliating. In an interview on BBC TV news in March of last year, Swedish Interior Minister Ylva Johansson was asked about the rocketing rape statistics in Sweden after reports appeared in international news media about the city of Malmö being the rape capitol of Europe. Ms. Johansson confidently assured BBC viewers that all was well in Sweden, there was no escalating rape problem and rape statistics are actually improving. In Ms. Johansson’s own words, the number of reported rapes and sexual harassment cases in Sweden were “going down, and going down, and going down”. The world’s Left rejoiced. Jubilant articles appeared in left-leaning media. Here was solid confirmation that the negative things being said about Sweden are “fake news”.

But brutal reality was quick to intrude into Interior Minister Ylva Johansson’s cozy little world. Experts, opposition politicians and media in Sweden pointed out that exactly the opposite of what the minister said to the BBC is true. She was informed in no short measure that rape in Sweden is escalating out of control, and has been doing so for decades. Ylva Johansson was accused of peddling “fake news” herself, and it didn’t take long for the news of her embarrassing public reprimand to reach international media. Ms. Johansson was forced to make a humiliating retraction in front of the entire world and apologize for her false claims on BBC TV news. Sweden’s humanitarian superpower image took yet another battering across the headlines of the world’s press.[3]

Sweden now has the dubious honor of being known as the rape capital of Europe. And it is steadily getting worse. Official statistics from the Swedish Crime Prevention Agency show that rape and sexual assault have been rising for decades. The latest government figures published in January of this year show that rapes have increased by 10% since 2016 and in the last ten years have increased by a massive 34%[4]. It is going to be an impossible task for even the most skilled of spin doctors to put a spin on that, and of late ever fewer of them are trying to.

This could well be the year in which Sweden’s humanitarian superpower charade completely and finally collapses. After decades of lies and outright denial the gulf between what politicians and the media have been saying and what ordinary people are experiencing has become so great that public confidence in them is dropping alarmingly.[5] This has spurred some of them to take a more reality based-position. The last year has seen increasing numbers of Swedish politicians and journalists start to wake up to what mass immigration and multiculturalism have done to their country. The beginnings of a realistic discourse can be detected amongst political and media elites, although this is likely just a matter of their own political and financial survival rather than honesty and integrity. After all, why did they remain silent for so many years while the problems were growing? As an old Swedish saying goes: a “conversion under the gallows.”

Send in the Clowns

Canadian Prime Minister Justin “Baby Doc” Trudeau visited France recently, and didn’t make as much of a fool of himself as he did earlier in India.

The French video outlet TV Libertés had a few things to say about Mr. Trudeau’s visit. But I must say that I object to their characterization of him as an “Anglo-Saxon”. He’s Canadian, but Québécois, which means that he is French (even if he is a rube by Parisian standards). Besides, if the rumors are true, he has quite a bit of Latino-Caribbean blood — about 50%, actually.

Where Did Your Picture of Viktor Orbán Come From?

Most readers will have seen some of those videos that collect multiple instances of identical or nearly identical news clips found on local media sites or cable networks. The topic is usually one that is important to the globalist Narrative: immigration, gun control, the normalization of abnormal sexual activity, etc. Somehow the talking heads on all these different outlets in far-flung locations end up saying exactly the same thing.

The following article (originally in German) provides some indication of how all this happens — there really is a concerted effort to turn out uniform copy and deliver it to multiple media outlets so that most of our sources of information remain “on message”. The author focuses on George Soros and Central Europe, but I’d be willing to bet that a similar methodology is operational throughout the Western world.

Many thanks to Anton for translating this essay from Vera Lengsfeld’s website:

Where did your picture of Viktor Orbán come from?

by guest author Ursula Prem

“Europe will have to endure Orbán for another four years,” headlines a guest article by Anton Pelinka online at ZEIT. Orbán is working on his “vision of an illiberal democracy” in Hungary, the reader learns from the teaser. The “quality of democracy” in Hungary has been falling for years; the following text quotes an “Analysis of the Sustainable Governance Indicators (SGI) of the Bertelsmann Stiftung”. If you click on the link provided by ZEIT at this point, you will find a nearly identical article entitled “Viktor Orbán: weakened, but sure of victory?” on the domain bertelsmann-stiftung.de. According to the author in ZEIT, he is professor of political science and nationalism studies at the Central European University in Budapest.

If you research the donors of the Central European University Budapest, then you learn that the CEU was founded in 1991 by investor George Soros and funded by him with a total of 420 million euros. George Soros can thus be regarded as the regular breadwinner of the author of the article. The Hungarian government accuses George Soros of destabilizing the country with the help of numerous NGOs, and is preparing a comprehensive package of laws against the illegitimate influence of Soros. That no great medium, not even DIE ZEIT, has seriously investigated the allegations against Soros, and instead publishes articles such as those mentioned above with beautiful regularity, surely has a reason, because: If the writer of an article directed against Orbán were on the payroll of their greatest opponent, this would have had to be made transparent. In any case, neutral reporting can not be expected in this constellation.

Strong and superficial

Those who find out about Viktor Orbán the person in several major online portals can easily see that all content-rich articles are largely similar in content. The journalist Keno Verseck wrote for SPIEGEL online on January 1, 2017: “Right-wing governments in Eastern Europe have a new public enemy: the billionaire George Soros. Because he supports civil rights organizations, he is subject to massive anti-Semitic hostility.” This is followed by a very critical report on the new offensive of the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his ruling party Fidesz against non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and especially against those funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundation.” In fact, Keno Verseck on SPIEGEL Online is something of a specialist on all Orbán questions. In typical alarmist style he writes on January 24, 2018:

The 87-year-old billionaire, Orbán has claimed for months, has a plan to destroy Europe’s Christian character and the ethnic-cultural identity of its nations. To achieve this, Soros promotes an “invasion” of Europe by millions of illegal migrants, mostly Muslims. Orbán wants to thwart this alleged “Soros plan” with the “Stop Soros” law package.

In reality, there is much more to it: the provisions of the three bills of the “Stop Soros” package can restrict the work of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), associations and citizens’ initiatives — because they are one of the last remaining controlling bodies of power in Hungary.

None of the many articles by Verseck published by SPIEGEL on the topics of Hungary, Orbán and Soros ever deal with background. They all remain opinionated and superficial. What are the real reasons for Orbán to insist, for example, on transparent funding structures of NGOs? Only so much: he has a lot of reason! However, the explanations would lead us away from the topic of this article.

“As an agency we provide well-researched stories”

Those who google the name Keno Verseck not only encounter other clients, such as the ZEIT, where he sees an era of a sinister “pseudo-democracy” rise in Hungary in 2013 with his contribution “Back to Blood and Home”, but also to one Eastern Europe magazine called ostpol. A total of 87 articles by Keno Verseck are listed there since 2011, many of which revolve around the person of Viktor Orbán. Whether his sports promotion (“questionable”) or his electoral success in 2014, which he owed to “his confrontational rhetoric and a weak opposition”: Orbán has “a very strong personality,” which is why we are concerned about the “threatened freedom of the media.”.

Two Minutes to Midnight

The following essay by Nick McAvelly was published earlier at the Frozen North.

Two Minutes to Midnight

by Nick McAvelly

On the front page of Thursday’s newspapers, under the headline “May’s Great Gamble,” the British public were informed that Theresa May, the current Prime Minister, was about to make a mistake not dissimilar to the one that Neville Chamberlain made in March 1939. Apparently, May was about to set our country on a course that could very well end up in a world war. It was reported that May had ordered British submarines armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles to move within range of Syria, so that Britain can participate in an American-led attack in that country.[1] As we now know, Britain went ahead and participated in those attacks.[2]

On 31st March 1939, Chamberlain stood in the House of Commons and made one of the worst political blunders in British history:

In the event of any action which clearly threatened Polish independence, and which the Polish Government accordingly considered it vital to resist with their national forces, His Majesty’s Government would feel themselves bound at once to lend the Polish Government all support in their power. They have given the Polish Government an assurance to this effect. I may add that the French Government have authorised me to make it plain that they stand in the same position in this matter as do His Majesty’s Government.[3]

At the subsequent debate in the House of Commons, the former Prime Minister David Lloyd George said:

The Prime Minister said to-day that he has spoken plain words. That is not enough. You must make it clear that you have the means of implementing those words. There are two objects you must have in view. One, of course, is that if Herr Hitler does march you will be able to meet him and beat him. The other is even more important, and that is that you should make it quite clear to him that you can do it. Then he will not attack. Is it clear? If war occurred to-morrow, you could not send a single battalion to Poland. Let us speak quite frankly. France could not. She would be confronted with fortifications which are infinitely more formidable than the Hindenburg line, which took us four years to break through, with casualties running into millions. [Interruption.] I am sorry to speak what is unpalatable, but I owe a duty to myself and to the country.

I cannot understand why, before committing ourselves to this tremendous enterprise, we did not secure beforehand the adhesion of Russia. […] I ask the Government to take immediate steps to secure the adhesion of Russia in a fraternity, an alliance, an agreement, a pact, it does not matter what it is called so long as it is an understanding to stand together against the aggressor. Apart from that we have undertaken a frightful gamble, a very risky gamble.[4]

In the years immediately prior to Chamberlain’s unsolicited war guarantee, the first priority in the British government’s military plan had been to create a defensive air force to protect the country from German bombers. The second priority, according to the British government, had been to develop the Navy in order to protect Britain’s trade routes. The third priority had been to maintain an Army for “Imperial Police Duties” overseas. Last on the list of British priorities was “co-operation in the defence of the territories of any allies we may have in war.”[5]

So Britain did not have the military capability to stop the Wehrmacht from invading Poland. As the British Chiefs of Staff had reported as early as 1937, a war with Germany would have to be “a long war”. Britain would have to resist an initial German attack (on Britain, not Poland), then use the industrial and economic power of the Empire to build up British forces, before finally launching a counter-attack. As the Chiefs of Staff stated, the military intervention of Russia, and material assistance from America “would go far towards making the Allied counter-offensive possible.”[6]

After the British government made their unsolicited war guarantee to Poland, they tried to get the Soviet Union onside, but that was never going to happen. In a speech in Moscow on 10th March, Josef Stalin had stated that he would “not allow our country to be drawn into conflicts by warmongers who are accustomed to have others pull the chestnuts out of the fire for them.”[7]

Paul Weston on the War in Syria

In the following video (which was recorded yesterday), Paul Weston talks about Donald Trump’s new war in Syria and the obvious false-flag characteristics of it. He also discusses the way the Western media’s critical faculties were utterly disabled as soon as the cry of “Och, the puir wee bairns!” was raised:

Campaign Pays Off: Sex Offender Allowed to Stay in Sweden

Campaign pays off: Sex offender allowed to stay in Sweden

by Svenne Tvaerskaegg

Swedish feminists and left-wing activists are celebrating. Their intensive six-month campaign for the right of an Afghani immigrant and convicted sex offender to remain in Sweden has been successful. The immigration authorities have finally caved in to their demands, lifted his deportation order and granted him the right to remain in the country.

Arif Moradi arrived in Sweden in 2014, eighteen years old and claiming to be an “unaccompanied minor”. He quickly rose to prominence. He became an activist and spokesman for the campaign organization “Afghani Unaccompanied Minors” and was soon a darling of the Left. In his capacity as spokesman he traveled around Sweden giving talks in schools about the situation of “unaccompanied minors”, and was the subject of glowing newspaper articles. He even had a meeting with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

In November 2016 the now twenty-year-old Moradi attended a confirmation camp for young Swedish teens as a coach and, amazingly, he was appointed to share a cabin with three young girls, two aged fourteen and one aged eighteen. Arif Moradi was a man of character, a high-profile activist who campaigned for the rights of migrants and had met the Prime Minister. What could possibly go wrong?

What did go wrong was that one evening in the shared cabin Moradi sexually assaulted one of the 14-year-old girls; he held her down and intimately groped her. The girl says she was terrified and asked him to stop, but the attack continued. After a while the girl managed to break free and ran to a bathroom, locked herself in and frantically texted a friend, asking her to get help. The two girls immediately went to the camp leaders and reported what had happened, but they got no support. The camp leaders’ first priority was to cover up the incident and no action was taken. They did not even inform the girls’ parents about what had happened to their daughter, and it wasn’t until later the following day when their distraught daughter telephoned them that they got to know of the assault.

The girl’s parents immediately reported the incident to the police, and Moradi was arrested and charged with a sexual offense against a minor. He was convicted in the subsequent trial, given a suspended sentence and fined 1500 Kronor. The verdict was passed on to the migration authorities, and they decided he should be held in custody awaiting deportation.

Left-wing and feminist activists were outraged at the decision to deport the Afghani migrants’ rights activist and sex offender, and immediately sprang to his defense, demanding the deportation order be rescinded. Twitter and Facebook were flooded with messages of support for him, many from women expressing their affection along with hearts and other emojis. Contempt was hurled at the court that had convicted the poor Afghan, and worst of all, at the girl who reported him and her family. One activist wrote of the girl’s family, “What goes around comes around, they will get their punishment.”

Sweden Will Not Be Any Different From Great Britain

Our Swedish correspondent LN sends this report on the latest PC madness from Absurdistan.

Sweden Will Not Be Any Different From Great Britain

by LN

Same Narrowness — Same Idiocy

…if nitwit PC politicians exert their will.

The governing parties — the Social Democrats plus the Green Party — want to see stricter rules to stop so-called politically suspect persons — “right-wing extremists” — or persons deemed “politically extreme” to cross the border into the God-pardoned Nordic humanitarian superpower.

EU sanctions lists or tightened legislation are also proposed. The Moderates view the ban favorably and wonder why it has not already been introduced.

“Social Democrats want to see stricter rules to stop so-called religious and political extremists from entering Sweden to spread “hate speech”. Among other things, The party wants the EU to establish sanctions lists against unwanted people; in the past, countries like Great Britain have banned Islam critics from entering the country,” writes SVT.Nyheter [Swedish television].

People who spread “hate” should not travel to Sweden. This is proposed by the Social Democrats, who want to introduce various measures so that so-called extremists will not enter the country.

The ban will apply to both Muslim and Christian extremists, and to so-called right-wing extremists.

“Unfortunately, we have seen a number of examples of people from the political and religious environment who have come to Sweden to spread hatred and threats, which should be denied entry into Sweden,” says Anders Ygeman, Group Leader of Social Democrats in Parliament and former Minister of the Interior to SVT.Nyheter.

Secondly, the Social Democrats want the police, the Migration Board and the Foreign Affairs Administration to better understand “hatred and threat predators” and, secondly, want the EU to establish a sanctions list that prevents such persons from ever entering the Schengen Area.
