Zimbabwe on the Rhine

Also published at Gates of Vienna

One of the first things that comes to mind when observing current events in Europe today — and especially since Angela Merkel and the rest of the top echelon of the EU decided to go all out and demolish the already leaking floodgates that were originally put in place to keep Europe safe from aggressive third world Lebensraum jihad — is this: how far is a leader allowed to go in destroying his or her country before someone finally steps in and says “Enough is enough”? Are there any limits as to what they can and cannot do?
Judging by the mass insanity that seems to have gripped the continent and the daily destruction and irreparable damage caused to nations and societies that date back several thousands years the answer has to be a resounding NO! There are no limits, only the leader’s imagination or the lack thereof determines the degree of destruction and treason that he or she is allowed to inflict upon their nations.

Because we have to be honest and call things by their proper names, and what is going on in Europe at the moment can only be referred to as cold hard treason. There is no other way to describe it and still expect to be taken seriously by any rational individual. If you do a quick Google search of the “The legal definition of treason” you get this:
“The betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies”.

As the above example shows, the term “treason” isn’t difficult to explain, nor is it hard to put into words. One doesn’t have to be a lawyer or well-versed in the legal jargon of the judicial system to understand its significance. It is very straightforward, and it can be condensed down into a sentence of merely twenty-one words, which of course means that no individual can justify their treason by maintaining that they didn’t fully comprehend the legal definition of their crime.
Any action that is carried out purposely and which will cause damage to or severely weaken a nation’s ability to maintain its national security must be considered treasonous, that is if it is carried out and condoned by one of its own citizens. The motivation behind the actions that leads to such an outcome is completely irrelevant. It doesn’t matter whether it was done for humanitarian purposes, whether it was done in the belief that it would somehow benefit the nation in the long run or whether it was simply done out of sheer incompetence and ignorance. The only thing that matters is the end result. The only thing that matters is the treason itself.

It’s hard not to draw parallels between the current situation in Europe and what has happened to Zimbabwe under the leadership of African dictator Robert Mugabe. When Mr. Mugabe assumed office in the late 1970s the African nation was one of the wealthiest country on the continent. Now, more than thirty-five years later, it is one of the poorest. Zimbabwe has been on a steady decline towards rock bottom, due to political incompetence, sheer stupidity and an insatiable hatred of traditional Western values. One can of course describe Zimbabwe’s transformation by slightly tweaking Norwegian anthropologist Thomas Hylland Erikson’s infamous quote about white majority nations in Europe:
“Zimbabwe has successfully deconstructed its white majority business sector, and done it so properly that it can never be called a majority again.”

No one can accuse Mugabe of not having deconstructed Zimbabwe and not having done so in a spectacular fashion. The only problem is that it plunged the country into hyperinflation and severe poverty in the process. The changes took place according to the book, and probably according to Mugabe’s own wishes, but the policies were a complete failure which is often the case with radical political visions proposed by politicians who have big egos but very little common sense.
Angela Merkel and her cronies in the EU are European versions of Robert Mugabe, and just like the African dictator they have nothing but contempt for democratic principles and people who oppose their insane visions for the future. They are dangerous people with big egos who despise their cultural heritage. They have a treasure chest filled to the brim with bad political ideas just waiting to be implemented, and when they are, they will cause tremendous and irreparable damage for their fellow citizens. Robert Mugabe gained notoriety for evicting white farmers from their land and by allowing poor uneducated Africans to move in and take their place. Merkel and several other leaders in the EU are following his example by incentivising private landlords to evict their less affluent compatriots from their rented accommodations to free up housing for newly arrived “refugees” that Merkel so arrogantly, and without any legal backing, took it upon herself to invite to Europe.

And it didn’t take long for the disastrous effects of this megalomania to manifest itself. Prosperous nations such as Sweden, Germany and Austria are already starting to see signs of rapid deterioration due to the stress associated with allowing thousands of “refugees” to pour in across its borders every single day.
Private businesses such as hotels and boarding schools, to name just two, have been converted into reception centres for “asylum seekers”. Local councils are pushed to their limits with unrealistic “refugee” quotas that they cannot possibly cope with, set by authorities who have shown absolutely no inclination whatsoever to impose effective measures that will stem the flow of human beings who will end up as permanent strains on future public budgets. Cosy little towns and cities that are heavily dependent on tourism are inundated with aggressive young males from the Third World, especially the Middle East, ensuring that businesses that rely on tourism will take serious financial hits, which again will substantially affect the local economies of these communities. Crime will increase and the local residents will start to get despondent and look for greener pastures elsewhere, as was the case with the people of European extraction in Zimbabwe when things began to go belly up in that country.

And just like Mugabe, Merkel and her cronies are contemplating introducing even more stringent restrictions on those who disagree with them. Politicians in Germany are advocating using legal action to hurt organizations who oppose Islam, private companies have stated that they will start firing anyone who might be tempted to voice unfavourable comments about the policies of Merkel and Company, and state-subsidized left-wing newspapers are ready to finish the job of kicking the living crap out of anyone with “deviant political views”, people who in many cases are already lying on the ground after having being verbally roughed up by the politically correct goons of the Left. Bad policies are not allowed to be questioned or ridiculed, and those who transgress will have to face the music.
And all of this is happening while Europe is slowly being transformed into a European version of Zimbabwe. A continent of white banana republics where successful institutions are being demolished at breakneck speed to facilitate the visions of the mentally disturbed multiculturalist elites who show no regard for the damage that their project will cause to millions of Europeans and their descendants. And hardly anyone in power is taking a step forward and saying, hey this is insanity and it has to stop. No one is standing up and calling it for what it is, namely the greatest act of treason that Europe has seen in modern times.

How far is a leader allowed to go in destroying his or her country before someone finally steps in and says “Enough is enough”?
Well, in modern-day Western societies, leaders can do pretty much whatever they like. They can jeopardize national security, remove national borders, give shelter to terrorists and give tax dollars to foreign born welfare scroungers. They can go against the wishes of the people and imprison political dissidents. They can destroy their own nations and turn them into unrecognizable ruins of what were once great societies.

They can do all this because today traitors are not imprisoned and dealt with accordingly. Today traitors are at the head of the tables in the halls and corridors of power and political influence. Today the traitors are calling the shots. Today the traitor has taken the place of the patriot. Today the patriot is imprisoned and the traitor is lauded.

The Swedish media and the “New Swedes”

Also published at Gates of Vienna

The humanistic Übermenschen (journalists and politicians) who are working tirelessly on transforming Sweden into Western Europe’s first failed state must have been in a state of absolute panic when the first reports about the deranged Trollhättan school killer started trickling into the politically correct Swedish newsrooms recently. No doubt they hoped with all their hearts that the sword wielding maniac who had donned the intergalactic version of the Burqa, a sinister looking black Darth Vader outfit, before going on a mad killing spree at a local school wasn’t a “new Swede”, and in particular not one who was in any way shape or form affiliated with a certain “religion that only wants to bring peace and harmony to the world”.

Maybe the Übermenschen of Sweden even went over possible angles and ways to describe the incident while it was still being played out. In their minds, that would at least lessen the significance of the perpetrator’s ethnicity, send out a crystal-clear message to any Swedes who might be tempted to make an issue out of the killer’s cultural background, and last but not least severely tone down or completely ignore the killer’s motivations should it turn out that he didn’t have Klingon as a native tongue, but rather spoke an archaic desert language and followed an earthly religion that condones stoning of women, killing of apostates and the severing of limbs, just to name a few juicy details.

Trollhättan is a small town situated on the western coast, not far away from Sweden’s second city Gothenburg, which has the dubious honour of having sent more fighters to ISIS that any other region of Sweden. Thus the Übermenschen who secretly feared that it could be the work of a “New Swede” were certainly not unjustified in suspecting that it could have something to do with ISIS and that it was perhaps just a case of the “war being brought back home to Sweden”. After all, it was only a couple of weeks ago that hard-core Muslims in Gothenburg showed their brazenness and demanded that Christian Assyrians in the city convert or die. The Arabic letter for Christian was even painted on the wall of a restaurant owned by an Assyrian Christian family, so one can understand the Übermenschen’s fears in that regard.

It must then have been very satisfying for them to learn that their suspicions had been completely unfounded and that the mental duress that they had had to go through was in vain. The sudden explosion of endorphins and other happy chemicals must have resulted in lots of mental “high-fives” and heartfelt sighs of relief when the identity of the killer was finally announced, and it turned out that he was a white ethnic Swede. And not only that, the killer was also an evil racist who had clicked on like buttons of video clips praising Adolf Hitler on YouTube just as assiduously as they themselves click on the delete button in the editor’s window of the readers’ comments section of their politically correct newspapers.

Nor could they believe their luck when it turned out that the killer was a big fan of the Sweden Democrats, which meant that their prayers had finally been heard and that they at last had been given what they had been waiting for for so long, namely Sweden’s own version of Anders Behring Breivik. This one-in-a-million type of event is the equivalent of being dealt a Royal Flush in poker — it’s a hand so potent that it is capable of silencing any rational and lucid argument that would otherwise have to be countered with an unconvincing and feeble accusation of xenophobia, Islamophobia or racism. Now all the Übermenschen of Sweden have to do is to utter the word Anton Lundin Petterson a few times and people will soon get the drift and think twice before they voice an alternative opinion.

This latest incident is worth as much to a Swedish multiculturalist as 100 dead kids at a school campus in the US are worth to hard-core anti-gun campaigners, or a couple of dead black criminals are to the “black lives matter” campaign. The method is the same, the hatred is the same and the dishonesty is the same. The only difference is the agenda, and in Sweden the agenda is to silence any criticism of the new multicultural Sweden.

This is of course something that the Übermenschen of Sweden realized immediately when they heard the Swedish-sounding name of the perpetrator for the first time, which must have been sweet music to their ears. It meant they could throw away the self-imposed ideological restraints that they normally rely upon to present a watered-down version of what passes for news in Sweden these days, and put a hard-hitting pro-multicultural spin on the story. It must have been a very welcome and an unexpected treat for them, considering that they live in a country where they have to work exceptionally hard to suppress the negative consequences of the policies that they themselves defend so vociferously.

To the multiculturalist there are only two types of crime being perpetrated in Sweden: (1) The crimes that affect the indigenous population, which are simply swept under the rug and where the perpetrators on occasions are given fake Swedish names to obscure their immigrant backgrounds; and (2) the type that affects the newcomers, and which must be presented with indignant fat bold headlines on the front pages of every single national newspaper. And that is why the MSM in Sweden had a collective ideological orgasm when they covered the Trollhättan case. It is the reason why they wrote extensively about the perpetrator’s political views, his ethnicity, his hatred of immigrants, his disdain of the established political parties, and his love of Hitler and the Sweden Democrats. It is why they warn of the perils of allowing the racists, Islamophobes and all the other haters of the hard right to be a part of civilized public discourse in Sweden. No stone was left unturned and no fact was deemed too insignificant for the MSM. Anything that was considered to be beneficial in combatting “xenophobia” was put on the table and considered fair game.

Compare that to another incident of senseless knife violence that took place in August when a failed asylum seeker went “Swede-hunting” at a local Ikea store and managed to kill a middle-aged mother and her son with a kitchen knife, nearly succeeding in decapitating the poor woman before he was finally subdued. In that case the media showed “great restraint” and did not brand it as a racist crime, despite the fact that the asylum seeker had hinted beforehand that he was looking for Swedes to unleash his anger upon. In fact, the media didn’t focus too much on the perpetrator’s political motives, other than pointing out that he was unhappy with his asylum application. They focused even less on his ethnicity and they certainly did not deem it necessary to encourage the immigrant community in Sweden to combat Swede-o-phobia, which is clearly widespread in certain circles. Nor did the media encourage the immigrant community to take a long hard look at itself and suggest that they should feel ashamed about how evil they are, despise their racist cultural “baggage” and embrace traditional Swedishness.

The two cases are almost identical, but the only one that ordinary Swedes are allowed to feel angry about is the one involving the white Swedish killer. It is sad, it is highly dishonest, and it really tells you all you need to know about the MSM in Sweden.

Lastly, it’s also worth pointing out the shocking double standards of the Swedish authorities when it comes to dealing with similar incidents perpetrated by Swedish citizens abroad. Given the two incidents mentioned above and the way the authorities dealt with them at the time, which is of course what you would expect of a First-World nation, it’s rather peculiar that they don’t crack down on returning ISIS fighters, many of whom have committed horrendous crimes that make the two aforementioned cases pale in comparison. The consequence of the current Swedish practice in this regard is that both perpetrators, the IKEA killer and the Trollhättan killer would have been able to return to Sweden without fear of being prosecuted had they carried out their atrocities in Syria or some other Islamic hellhole, and provided that they had taken the proper measures to disguise their true identities.

Known Swedish ISIS fighters can today freely return to Sweden from Syria without fear of being arrested and prosecuted for their crimes. A few of them have even returned to Sweden for free hospital treatment after being injured on the battlefield. But don’t worry; you’re not going to read any outraged articles about it penned by the people who vented their anger on Swedish society by pushing the Trollhättan killer in front of them. They are only interested in exposing “Swedish” racism, not in “stigmatizing” “peaceful” Muslims.

The road to hell is paved with petrodollars

Also published at Gates of Vienna

Most people learn from an early age that money doesn’t grow on trees. And nowhere is that more true when it comes to paying for cultural enrichment, which is a lesson that Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg learned the hard way the other day when she had to inform the Norwegian Parliament that the estimated costs of processing the enormous influx of so-called “asylum seekers” would reach a staggering US $6 billion over the next five years.

And to add to Mrs Solberg’s woes, this is occurring at a time when Norwegian oil revenues have taken a severe blow, resulting in tens of thousands of Norwegians losing their lavishly-paid jobs in the Norwegian oil industry. More and more young Norwegians have been joining the ranks of the unemployed, and have to rely on social handouts from the government to get by.

What could possibly be better then than to spend billions of dollars on hordes of people from the Third World — mostly Muslims — who are borderline illiterates, who have no intention of contributing to society and who are only looking for a rich and gullible sugar-daddy nation in the West that they and their extended clan can scrounge off?

Well, according to the Left, nothing could be better, because they are literally walking on sunshine these days. They are enthusiastically encouraging Norwegians to join in what has colloquially been dubbed a “working bee” by the MSM, to ensure that the influx of future welfare recipients is dealt with as proficiently and smoothly as possible. The prospects of importing hundreds if not thousands of hard-core terrorists who could destabilize the country and cause serious mayhem doesn’t seem to faze them in the slightest. In fact, they are much more concerned that the police in Norway are now carrying firearms at all times, a safety measure that was introduced late last year due to the increased threat level, and a direct consequence of by the Left’s aggressive pursuit of a multicultural society.

Hardly a day goes by when there isn’t a frenzied reference in the MSM by a left-wing diehard about the outrageousness of an armed police force and the possibility that a member of the police could actually shoot and harm a violent criminal who took it upon himself to go berserk on a crowded street with a samurai sword, a box cutter or some other exotic type of bowel-slicer. But then again, these are the people that were outraged over suggestions that Anders Behring Breivik should have been taken out by a sniper’s bullet when he went on his mad killing spree on Utøya Island in 2011, so what else can you really expect?

“Cultural enrichment” is, of course, a term coined to mock the multiculturalists’ outrageous claim that importing hordes of people with diametrically opposing views and values is a smart and decent thing to do. And no, we’re not talking about importing people who think that capitalism is superior to Norwegian social democracy, or people who prefer football over cross-country skiing, but rather individuals from “exciting” cultures where it’s considered completely acceptable to stone women to death and hang gays from mobile cranes. To kill people who decide to leave Islam or who have the temerity to offend the prophet Muhammad’s honour.

If you look at it from a completely rational point of view, you’ll find that today’s cultural enrichment is just as beneficial as the Black Death was in 14th century Europe. The reality is that this enrichment is slowly destroying our culture and our way of life, and just like the Black Death it is spreading like a malignant cancer, which the decision-makers are doing their utmost to ignore.

The whole Western world was in an uproar when ISIS blew up relics from the ancient Greco-Roman civilization in Palmyra earlier this year, but when Norwegian and European leaders destroy a living and highly vibrant civilization, and do it just as effectively as the powerful explosives used by ISIS, no one even bats an eyelid. The political classes in the west are more interested in preserving memories of a long since extinguished civilization than trying to save the one that is under attack at the moment. And, sadly, the cultural enrichment has picked up some serious momentum in the last few months and it has now shifted into high gear. People all over the European Union have begun in earnest to discover what the term “cultural enrichment” really means.

That is also the case in Norway, where a kindergarten recently had to close down due the sudden arrival of a reception centre for asylum seekers next door. The straw that finally broke the camel’s back for the parents of the children was a bloody fistfight between two of the residents staying at the reception centre just outside the perimeter of the kindergarten. This was an incident that was witnessed by several of the children. Prior to that there had been incidents of asylum seekers wandering onto the grounds of the kindergarten during operating hours. So what did the local council do upon learning about this? Well, they decided to close down the kindergarten, of course! The children just had to toughen up and deal with it. After all, they can always find new friends at a new kindergarten; and besides, what’s the big deal if the parents have to spend another hour or so each day dropping off and picking up their children from kindy?

These might sound like cruel arguments, but apparently they made perfect sense for the members of the local council.

Likewise parents are becoming increasingly worried about sending their children off on organized school trips to various campsites around the country, something which is an established Norwegian tradition and something that hundreds of thousands of Norwegian kids have done in the past and have fond memories of. A recent newspaper article highlighted some parents’ reluctance to send their children to a camp after they learned that twenty asylum seekers were living in buildings on the campgrounds. As one parent put it, they are worried because they have absolutely no idea about who these people really are, what their mental state is like and what they may be capable of doing when the kids arrive. And the concerned parents have a very strong case, to put it mildly. Why should they feel at ease when the authorities themselves have absolutely zero idea about the real identities of the “asylum seekers”? Figures show that 90% of asylum seekers who apply for political asylum in Norway do not have any identification papers. For all we know the camp could be the new home of senior members of ISIS or Al Qaida. It is also worth pointing out that the two newspaper articles describing the aforementioned cases were written in such a way that the reader might question the motives of the parents, and not the authorities.

The increased pace of cultural enrichment in Norway these days has also prompted the political Left to intensify its mass-intimidation campaigns, in which leftists actively go after those who dare to speak out against the official policies, with the intention of silencing and shaming them. The more obvious it becomes that the policies of the Left are failing, the more important it becomes to keep the situation under tight “control”, that is, to make sure that the critics keep their opinions to themselves and don’t rock the boat. Long-time readers of GoV should be very familiar with the methods employed by the Norwegian inquisitors, their tenacity and the unbridled pleasure they take in destroying the reputations of decent people whose only crime is to have opposing political views.

One of those unlucky individuals who ended up in the crosshairs of the political left recently is Hege Storhaug, a long-time critic of Islam and a vocal opponent of the Norwegian authorities’ head-in-the sand approach when it comes to dealing with multiculturalism and Islam. She is one of the co-founders of the Norwegian think tank Human Rights Service, and is thus frequently in the media discussing reports written by HRS, talking about surveys commissioned by the organization, or just commenting on issues dealing with multiculturalism and Islam. In this capacity, she has stepped on quite a few toes, and the MSM have finally decided that it is payback time.

It came in the form of an extremely vile hit piece published in Itromso a few weeks ago, where the author of the editorial even went so far as to compare HRS and Hege Storhaug with Norwegian wartime collaborators, Jew haters and Nazis during WW2 in German-occupied Norway.

The piece ended with a cryptic remark about the fact that many Norwegian wartime collaborators were shot at the end of the war for their treason.

This prompted Kjetil Rolness, a Norwegian sociologist and a social commentator to pen an op-ed entitled “The hatred directed at Hege Storhaug” in which he described in great detail the venomous vitriol that is constantly being hurled at her by members of the political Left, the cowardly guilt-by-association tactics that they use, and the fact that no one can refute the facts and figures that are presented by Storhaug and HRS in the reports that they publish. Rolness also correctly pointed out that this hatred will make ordinary people afraid of talking positively about Storhaug, and make them think twice about liking any of her articles posted on social media. The Left has in essence succeeded in making her name synonymous with the bogeyman, which of course was the ultimate goal and the sole motive behind the intimidation campaign. Rolness’ op-ed was published a few days after the hit piece appeared in iTromso, and it has generated massive ripples in the MSM and on social media in Norway. It is still being hotly debated today, with the usual “racist”, “Islamophobe” and “hater” epithets thrown in for free by Rolness’ and Storhaug’s detractors.

It is also worth mentioning that until recently HRS have received yearly state subsidies from the authorities that have allowed them to keep the organization afloat (pretty much every Norwegian organization receives some type of subsidies, and this is governed by law). HRS’s subsidies, however, look set to be revoked after massive political pressure from powerful forces on the left. One Norwegian politician from the Socialist Left, Audun Lysbakken, actually broke protocol a few years ago and ordered the subsidies of the think tank cut in half.

This prompted the leadership of HRS to contact the well-known FrP politician (Progress Party) Carl I Hagen, whose party at the time held the power of balance in the Oslo City Council. Hagen consequently made it a condition that HRS subsidies be reinstated in full in return for continued FrP support for the annual Council budgets in the capital.

However, after the recent local elections in Norway, where FrP lost support in the city of Oslo, and the left made considerable gains, proposals have yet again surfaced to revoke HRS’s financial support, which of course is crystal-clear proof that the official subsidies in Norway are political in nature. It clearly shows that any organization that dares to oppose the official line on certain issues stand to lose its funding at any moment.

This is a good reason to scrap the entire system and abolish state subsidies altogether which, would guarantee the independence of these organizations and kill any questions of political meddling. Nevertheless, that is irrelevant in this particular context.

Another person who has involuntarily ended up in the media recently is Hanne Tolg, a Norwegian British-based writer for the Norwegian conservative website This website and its founder Hans Rustad became famous after the 22/7 attacks due to the fact that Breivik had posted a couple of dozen non-violent and completely ordinary comments in their discussion section. For this was absolutely trashed in the MSM in the months following the attacks. The fact that ABB had also written dozens of comments in the MSM was quickly swept under the rug, because there is no reason to “get caught up in details”. Anyway, the reason why Hanne Tolg ended up in the MSM was that she was literally pressured to resign from her job in Wales after someone requested information about her employer and justified this by referring to the Freedom of Information Act, and used Tolg’s name as the reason.

This subsequently led to suspicion and additional investigation by her employer, who soon discovered that she had been writing articles for The articles that Tolg had penned were average, ordinary conservative articles of the type you would expect to find in a run-of-the-mill conservative British or American magazine. However, this had no bearing on her case, nor did the fact that she had never encouraged violence, illegality, etc. The thing that became the focus of attention was that “had been ABB’s favourite website and one where he had posted several comments”. This is apparently what kick-started the official investigation by her employer, a local fire station in a small town in rural Wales where she had been working in admin for thirteen years. What followed was a process that can only be described as a protracted witch-hunt that lasted for several months and that eventually drained her of her strength, and which finally made her cave in and resign.

The fact that everything was written in Norwegian obviously complicated the process, as her British employers were forced to rely on Google translate and Tolg’s own translations and clarifications. In the end Tolg was never told about who requested the information about her employer and used her name as the reason why, and she still does not know who that person is. It is not unreasonable to suspect, however, that that individual is a Norwegian, given the language of the articles in question and the fact that is a Norwegian website. It could even be a prominent person working in the Norwegian MSM or in the Norwegian academia, but we will probably never find out. One thing for sure, though, is that there have been several cases in Norway where people who disagree political with others have contacted the person’s employer over things that he/she has said or written with the intention of causing difficulties for the target.

Admittedly Hanne Tolg wasn’t “forced” from her job by a Norwegian employer, but the list of Norwegians who have lost their jobs for daring to state their political views has grown fairly long, and more names will be added to it now that the official estimates of “refugees” arriving in Norway by the end of 2016 have been raised to 60,000.

This is a far cry from the 8,000 Syrians that the Norwegian government so generously pledged to accept a few months ago, before the local elections and after a massive media campaign orchestrated by the Left urging the government to do so. There are still many people in Norway who dare to oppose the official policies of the Left, and there are still many who are unafraid to write under their real names. It would not at all be that surprising if some of these were made an example out of, for example by terminating them from their jobs and making them unpalatable for any future employers. After all, we’re talking about “nice cosy Norway” here.

No rational arguments please, we’re Swedish

Also published at Gates of Vienna
Someone recently wrote on Twitter that Sweden is a failed state. It is a harsh accusation, but sadly the person who posted the tweet has a point. It’s a statement that will be acknowledged with approving nods by those who have followed the situation in Sweden for a while, because it’s something that they’ve been able to see with their own eyes. Deep cracks have begun to form in the Scandinavian country’s glossy veneer and its shiny surface has taken on a smut-stained colour, and is turning into something ugly and revolting. The familiar characteristics of a failed state are there to see for anyone who are willing to look at it with honest eyes. Admittedly, it does not fall into the category “Third-world hellhole à la Somalia and Afghanistan”, but it is moving rapidly into the category “Full speed ahead to Dungtown”.

It is sad, but also perversely fascinating, to observe a country such as Sweden that has tremendous problems with integrating its predominantly unassimilable immigrant population — one that has seen massive riots in its towns and cities in recent years, choreographed by belligerent immigrant youth who will soon make up the majority population, that whose police officers, ambulance personnel and firefighters are routinely physically attacked — decide that the way forward lies in importing even more unassimilable immigrants who will further exacerbate the country’s already insurmountable problems.

The official projections regarding the arrival of “refugees” in the coming years run in the hundreds of thousands, which is absolutely jaw-dropping considering that the population of Sweden is just shy of ten million. But no one in the politically correct Swedish establishment seems to think that this is an undesirable scenario, one that they might actually have to take some serious steps to avert. So far the only ideas that have been presented are to raise taxes to pay for the invasion, to take out loans from the EIB (European Investment Bank), and to raise the possibility of confiscating ordinary Swedes’ private real estate in order to house all the newly arrived “refugees” should the situation prove to be “untenable” in the coming years — something which it most definitely will.

The horror stories coming out of Sweden these days involving newly arrived “refugees” who demonstrate their complete inability to function in a modern Western society run into the hundreds, if not thousands. But it does not shake the resolve of official Sweden in its efforts to import as many “refugees” as humanly possible.

So when Mohammad from Syria, who only arrived in Sweden as a “refugee” in September 2015, manages to sexually harass 21 women ranging from 4 to 69 years old, it is a non-issue. The fact that he has been walking around on the streets of Sweden aggressively propositioning teenage girls, trying to kiss a 4 year old and pestering a 69-year-old woman with the intention of placating his raging hormones is suppressed and simply hushed up. The show must go on, and nothing can be allowed to stop it.

And this is the new reality that the political classes in Sweden are working like well-trained ants to foist on its citizenry, who are made to think being replaced demographically is more preferable than being labelled a vile racist and Islamophobe. And this is the reality that emerges when one opens up the nation’s floodgates to “refugees” from the Islamic and third world. TV crews all over Europe have documented numerous local “clashes of civilization” wherever the migrants have decided to grace the indigenous population with their presence. Thus it should come as no surprise that the “asylum seekers” keep up their behavioural pattern when they reach their final destination, which in this case is Sweden.

One is tempted to say “Welcome to reality, Mr Jönsson and Mrs Persson! This is the first day of the rest of your lives, and no it’s not going to be anything like the fairy-tale story that has been promised you by the blue eyed university graduated spin-doctors who despise nothing more than their own cultural heritage.”

Because the “refugees “will not shower you with unrestrained gratitude for letting them into your country, but rather complain about what they are being offered and in many cases resort to violence to show their displeasure.

Which is exactly what happened on a train between Malmö and Stockholm recently, according to an anonymous source working for the Swedish National Railway (SJ).

Refugees on the train decided to wage jihad in the restaurant carriage and strike terror in the hearts of the train personnel, to the extent that the latter had to flee and lock themselves inside a service cabin, as they feared for their own safety. It is highly unlikely that any “welcome refugees” signs and other effeminate gestures would have done anything to de-escalate the situation. According to the same source, SJ ordered its staff not to talk about the incident and desperately tried to put a lid on it, and now claims that it never occurred.

But other incidents on board other SJ trains that have been reported in the MSM make SJ’s denials rather pathetic and desperate.

The refusal by official Sweden to face reality when it comes to Multiculturalism and Islam is flabbergasting. The response is a little bit creepy, considering that individuals who show a similar strong reluctance to deal with reality in other areas of life are often referred to mental health practitioners and are frequently prescribed heavy medication in an effort to alleviate their delusional symptoms. In some extreme cases hospitalization and prolonged stays in closed psychiatric wards are even required. There are several names for the symptoms: cognitive dissonance, psychosis, insanity, or delusion. But in Sweden it is simply the new norm, and is rewarded with a pat on the back. It comes with the privilege of portraying oneself as a “decent human being”. Politically correct Sweden is like a nation of closet gays angrily accusing everyone else of being closet gays.

If Sweden were a person and had to undergo a psychological evaluation, a psychiatrist would probably insist, after a full and thorough examination, that an extensive treatment plan must be worked out in order to cure the patient. The psychiatrist might attribute the highly peculiar behaviour of not wanting to face the consequences of one’s actions to an abnormal fear of losing face. Maybe he would even nod sympathetically when he was told that the tyranny of consensus is so strong in Sweden that trying to break free from its shackles is akin to admitting that one is a bed-wetter. In a society where everybody has to work assiduously to keep up appearances, it must be excruciatingly hard to take a step forward, raise one’s hand and admit that one is unable to abide by the strict standards imposed by society — in other words, acknowledging that one is incompetent and an utter failure in the eyes of society.

And maybe that’s how it is. Maybe the people who pull the strings in Sweden know where it’s all going, but realize that it’s too late to do anything to change the outcome. Perhaps the fear of being labelled incompetent is too hard to bear, and thus they decide to keep up with the charade. Losing face is something that people from all over the world go to great lengths to avoid, and it is probably an instinct that is hardwired into our DNA. Japan was known for its ritual suicide, hara-kiri, which people gladly accepted in days gone by to protect their honour and save face. Similarly in the Arab world, males will resort to killing their women and children if these have brought shame upon the family, in order to escape the humiliating fate of losing face. Likewise, in the Western world people routinely commit suicide if they have been severely humiliated and can’t deal with the possibility of having to lose face.

Thus it is not at all that unrealistic to suspect that some of the Swedes who have played key roles in creating the multicultural nightmare that is current day Sweden would rather continue to deconstruct their own country in order to avoid admitting that they were wrong. This would brand them as incompetents and compel them to go through the humiliating process of losing face.

Besides, what would happen to individuals like these if someone else took it upon themselves to sort out the mess that they created? What would happen when that specific task had been successfully completed? It would of course be reckoning day, and these individuals would then have to face the music. If that is a plausible scenario, then it’s preferable, from the standpoint of those individuals, to ensure that such a day is never allowed to arrive.

The Other Immigrant Invasion: The Migration of Roma into Sweden

Also published at Gates of Vienna
The police in Sweden are waving the white flag.

No taxation without representation. It’s a principle that the founding fathers of the USA succeeded in introducing in the 18th century after a long and drawn-out revolution that cost several thousand American pioneers their lives. Their European cousins, however, let it slip through their fingers in the 20th and 21st centuries without even twitching an arm to prevent it. The consequence of this momentous loss is that any European citizen that today raise legitimate questions about the lack of democratic process will, figuratively speaking, be hit over the head with thousands of paragraphs, binding conventions and legislation concocted by unelected bureaucrats, which the concerned citizen has had no say in shaping or influencing whatsoever.

We got a brief glimpse into the way this lack of representation manifests itself in contemporary Europe a few days ago through the Swedish investigative TV program “Uppdrag Granskning”, which shone a light on some of the more disastrous side effects of one of the so-called fundamental “freedoms” of the EU, namely the one that deals with the destruction of national borders and the accompanying legislation that strips EU member nations of the right to decide who gets to cross their borders and who gets to stay. The program’s topic was the massive influx of Roma (gypsies) in recent years and the enormous problems that these individuals are causing in Sweden. The report focused primarily on the squalor and littering that seems to follow this particular group the way a contrail follows the flight path of a jetliner.

The reporter, Janne Josefsson, one of the few honest journalists left in Sweden, visited two different regions of the country, a tiny little village in the Swedish countryside, Högfors, and the heavily culturally enriched city of Malmö, where he showed the viewers how the Roma have completely taken over their surroundings and turned it into what can best be described as third-world shanty towns. Josefsson also reveals the total lack of consideration shown by the Roma for the rest of society, and how Swedish authorities deal with the numerous and revolting problems associated with this ethnic group.

Although the program didn’t deal specifically with the mass invasion of predominantly Muslim “refugees” that Europe is currently witnessing, it is still very informative and a must-see, most of all because it gives us a forewarning of how Swedish authorities will deal with the Muslim invasion when it starts in earnest in a few months. The simple answer is that they won’t, at least not if we’re to judge them by their response to the problems presented in the TV program, where various government agencies and local police pass the burden of responsibility for sorting out these issues among themselves like professional soccer players during a match.

The first half of the program is dedicated to the devastating fate that have befallen the indigenous residents of the little village of Högfors in the Swedish countryside, that have seen an influx of approximately 50-100 Roma in recent years. These “new Swedes” have moved into old apartment buildings that used to house Swedish workers in the past and that have now been bought up by private investors who are renting them out to the Roma. It highlights the legitimate concerns that the primarily older Swedish inhabitants of the village have, several of whom are too scared to even venture out of their houses.

One of the Swedish inhabitant interviewed in the program tells the reporter that the problem is getting so bad, mostly due to police indifference and inaction, that some of the villagers have hinted that they might get their guns out and sort the problem themselves. He adds cryptically that most of the people in the area are avid hunters, and that the majority of the Swedish households have guns. He is genuinely worried that some will eventually snap and simply take the law into their own hands.

The second half of the program is dedicated to the large groups of Roma that have set up an illegal squatter camp on an empty, privately owned block of land in the city of Malmö. And just like in Högfors, the various government agencies and local police, whose responsibility it is to deal with these issues are passing the ball among themselves like seasoned soccer pros.

However, the most shocking segment of the program, and a scenario which will most likely repeat itself in full when the mass invasion of Muslim refugees begins picking up pace in the coming months, occurs when the journalist pays a visit to the holiday home of an elderly Swedish couple that has been broken into by a Roma family of eight, who have now taken up residence there. The journalist calls up the Swedish owners, who are in Switzerland, while he’s standing outside the occupied residence. The old couple tell him that they have reported the matter to the police, but that they refuse to evict the new tenants because they do not know who they are, i.e. the police don’t know the identities of the squatters. The police refuse to do anything to assist the homeowners in repossessing their property, and they actually insist that the 80-year-old man, who live in Switzerland, fly back to Sweden and confront the Roma who are living illegally in his house, and personally obtain the identity of every single member of the household.

It is apparently beyond the scope of responsibilities of the Swedish police to check the identification papers of people who choose to reside illegally in others people’s properties. The distressed owner also tells the reporter that they only recently found out about the “new tenants” when their daughter showed up to spend her holiday there and got the shock of her life when she found the Roma family living in the residence.

This piece of information should send shivers down the spine of every property owner in Sweden, because it is a loud and clear message to potential squatters that the Swedish police are unwilling or simply too cowardly to respect and enforce private property rights in the country these days. The implication is that any property owner or tenant can be denied access to his or her home if squatters decide to break into the residence and move in. This invariably means that “refugees” who catch wind of this information — and there are probably plenty who already have — can simply break into a house when they show up in Sweden and move in, safe in the knowledge that it will almost be impossible to evict them, especially since one of the criteria for enforcing an eviction order is that the property owner confront the squatters and obtain their personal data.

The Swedish authorities’ apparent indifference to the basic rights of property owners is alarming and a warning that the Swedish government will not hesitate to use special existing provisions that allow them, during a time of crisis, to confiscate privately owned holiday homes for temporary accommodation for “refugees”. The provision became law during the civil wars in the Balkans in the early 1990s when tens of thousands of asylum seekers escaping from the region settled down in Sweden.

And there is no question that the looming “refugee” invasion and the precarious housing situation in Sweden, which will become even more desperate in the coming months, will be classified as a crisis by the Swedish authorities. As a consequence, we can expect to see the Swedish state begin confiscating private properties this coming winter, in addition of course to “refugees” taking it upon themselves to assist the authorities by personally confiscating properties belonging to ordinary Swedes and in effect rendering these homeless, literally kicked out of their own homes by the “refugees” that their altruistic government has taken it upon themselves to invite to Sweden. When this happens, the circle will be complete, in that a socialist state will actually take their political beliefs one step further and follow the example of their ideological mentors in the Soviet Union, namely to disregard private property law and confiscate the properties of their own citizens.

In some ways it may be tempting to laugh and make sarcastic comments about how stupid and crazy the Swedes are for allowing this to happen to their country, but the truth is that we are all “Swedes” in the sense that what goes on in Sweden also goes on in our own countries. To a lesser extent, perhaps, and in a slightly less dhimmified manner. But remember this: the only difference is that the Swedes are being chauffeured down the multicultural highway in a luxurious Bentley, whereas the rest of us are driving along at a slightly slower pace and in slightly more modest vehicles. However, we will eventually arrive at the end of the road. We’ll arrive somewhat later, but don’t worry: we will all get there in the end.
