“Riots are caused by police doing their jobs”

 

Last night was yet another flare-up in infamous Stockholm ghetto Tensta. A crowd of 50-something masked thugs were hurling rocks and molotov cocktails at police and fire fighters. But noone was killed and police only had to fire warning shots in the air, so no big deal. Ho-hum, in the “new normal” of Sweden.

What makes it noteworthy is how state media Stockholm P4 chooses to frame the situation. Apparently, police has been putting efforts into quelling local gang activity by making some arrests in the past weeks. So the headline becomes:

  

“Major police operations cause of the riots”

The subheadline reads: “It’s not surprising”

  
So… A riot is caused by the police upholding the law. It is not caused by a big group of thugs deciding to make molotov cocktails and toss them at the police.

This treacherous way of framing such reports is designed to lead to the subconscious conclusion: “Well, if the police would just stop doing their job, then there would be no riots.”

And a battered woman’s black eye is caused by her having burnt the eggs. It is not caused by the violent husband, because she brought it on herself. Right?

Rewarding Jihadists

  
The Swedish capital of Stockholm has released its new policy document for dealing with ISIS fighters returning to the city after having had their fill of rape and beheadings of civilians. At first blush it seems strange that such a document would be all of 9 pages. 

I mean, “Shoot!” should only take up one page, even with a large font.

Oh well, let’s see how Stockholm intends to handle terrorist-trained and combat-hardened fanatics. Here are a few translated highlights to capture the gist of things:

Post-perspective: When a person wishes to leave a violent extremist grouping or coming home from combat overseas, it is crucial to provide customized inclusion efforts. Even then, it is important to have a local cooperation between various actors. Voluntary organizations can provide targeted support and advice. Even faith communities working with advice, but also psychosocial support.

When it comes to people who participated in combat there is likely to be great need of health efforts. Therefore, it is important to establish cooperation between social services, social psychiatry and drug units, as well as health centers and psychiatric services (trauma, PTSD, etc.)

When it comes to security, it is important that cooperation between social services, income support, employment and other efforts by the Labour Department, as well as assistance with job placement.
Finally, the accommodation issue is a prerequisite that must work. Therefore, cooperative housing companies needs to be included in the post-perspective.”

To summarize: The city of Stockholm will make it a priority to provide the returning ISIS fighters with housing, free health care (physical and mental) and full financial support, until they have received earmarked jobs. All this of course fast-tracked past the line of law-abiding immigrants and indigenous Swedes. 

Since they now provide all the recruitment incentives for joining ISIS, the only thing missing is a city-run recruitment office. Oh, wait. That would the Employment Office, where it was recently revealed that tax-paid clerks were recruiting for ISIS. Sorry, my mistake! 

Then it’s time to make proactive efforts to discourage radicalization. The solution, the city concludes, is to pour tax money into muslim organizations already in contact with the at-risk persons:

Support to associations and other stakeholders locally
There are examples of local actors which can contribute to efforts locally. For example, the Islamic Association and the mosque in Rinkeby-Kista has initiated education for interested parents and youths in the Järva area. It is very important to support such local initiatives. It is also important to involve local associations, some of which have contact with residents that the  authorities do not come into contact with.”

As journalist and blogger Per Gudmundson points out, the Islamic Association of Sweden is a remarkably poor choice for “fighting Jihad” since it is the Swedish branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Their official motto reads:

“Allah is our goal, the prophet is our leader, the quran is our law, Jihad is our way, and death for the honor of Allah is our greatest desire!”

Gudmundson notes that they are in active combat in Syria at the moment, in coalition with Jabhat al-Nusrah which is a branch of al-Qaida. 

Swedish vice PM: Fortune seekers equal to holocaust victims

  
Åsa Romson, vice prime minister and leader of extremist party Miljöpartiet

Last week I wrote about the estimated million Africans attempting to cross the mediterranean in search of a better life. There are pockets of unrest, but not all-out war as is the case in Syria. And regardless, it’s questionable if you’re still “fleeing for your life” when you’ve traveled through 3 peaceful countries and choose to get on a rickety boat to reach Europe. At that point you’re an economic immigrant, not a refugee. 

Official Swedish policy doesn’t agree with my assessment. Pretty much everything counts as grounds for asylum these days including poverty (77% approval rate of all asylum applications), which is incredibly costly and has thus forced the Swedes to make dramatic cuts to the foreign aid to the REAL refugees of war. 

To summarize: Sweden is decreasing support for the people literally dying in miserable refugee camps in the desert, to take in an ever-increasing number of economic fortune seeker from non-warring places that merely wants to get a free ride on Sweden’s generous welfare system. This makes Sweden a “humanitarian superpower,” according to the ruling class.

Their problem with the current system is twofold: The inflow of fortune seekers is too slow (!), and the boats crossing the mediterranean occasionally sink. Both problems are solved by letting the poor people apply for asylum at the embassies and consulates around the world. Then they can simply fly directly to Sweden and settle into their cozy new life the same day their application is approved. This is called “Opening legal ways into Europe,” in political Newspeak.

Sweden has less than 10 million citizens. There are literally billions of poor people in the world. It’s like a rowboat that seats 3 being commandeered out to save everyone aboard a cruise ship with 5000 passengers.

Despite the mainstream media and some political parties beating this “legal ways” drum relentlessly, there is resistance. Fortunately, there seems to be just enough people that recognize how absurd the idea is to prevent it from becoming reality. So far. 

As the topic surfaced in a live TV political debate last night, the vice prime minister from extremist green party Miljöpartiet, which advocates entirely open borders, made a remarkable statement

“We are turning the mediterranean into a new Auschwitz!”

Say what? Is she really comparing the infamous Nazi death machine to Africans that voluntarily hop on boats in the hope of getting a better standard of living? I mean… Really?

Yup. When pressed by the media after the debate, she stubbornly refused to back off her statement

Somehow, it feels like not much needs to be added when a person in all seriousness is arguing that the two are perfectly comparable and on par with one another. Nor is anything need to be said about what kind of person would use the holocaust as an argument to support their own hubris and misguided humanitarianism.

Not surprisingly, the Jewish communities in Sweden don’t share the vice prime ministers sentiment. 

“Terrorists are people too”

  

The headline above is the verbatim headline of today’s editorial in Aftonbladet, one of Sweden’s major national newspapers. 

I could stop right there. But let’s take a look at the arguments presented. The Swedish article is based heavily on the ideas of French prefect Pierre N’Gahane, originally from Congo. 

According to N’Gahane, the main reason for young muslims “going Jihad” is that they’re utter failures at life. Not having a father figure coupled with failures at petty crime make them vulnerable for recruitment to ISIS. Of course, poverty and social handicaps can be a contributing factor, but is not the main reason. Neither is religion (!) apparently. 

Thus, the proper way to combat Jihadism is by assembling civil society to divert young men just starting out down the dark path, similar to how families can join forces to break impressionable youth away from loon cults. And in all fairness, this probably works in many cases. Half-hearted Jihadists-to-be mostly looking for attention just may pull back from the chasm if shown ample compassion and support.

The problem is when the soft approach is presented as the ONLY solution, as is being done here. It’s all silk gloves, with no iron fist to back it up when the soft approach has failed. Furthermore, recent acts of terror doesn’t jive with any of this. The Boston marathon bombing, the most lethal terrorist attack since 9/11, was carried out by a scholarship medical student with a bright future as a brain surgeon ahead of him for example. I doubt a “Jihadist defection hotline” would have done much good there.

“We must make these people a better offer than the Jihadists can.”

This article, being fed to a sizable percentage of the Swedish population, talks exclusively about the benefits of providing support and making a better offer than ISIS. It also praises the merits of giving preferential treatment to “reintegrated” ISIS fighters returning from the Syrian battlefields. Which is of course morally unpalatable (replace “fanatical ISIS butchers” with “fanatical Nazi SS butchers” and try it on for size) and directly counterproductive, since it merely makes a stint of ISIS-service a shrewd fast-track strategy for skipping to the front of the line for jobs and housing upon return.

Imagine being a member of the Christian minority having fled the massacres of Syria, made it to Sweden, and then seeing your brother’s killer not only being let back into the country, but getting rewarded for services rendered. This has been real in Sweden since 2013.

Giving radical islamists a blanket excuse with only pampering as the appropriate response is just as dumb as those who declare islam a “death cult” arguing they should all be executed for safety’s sake. All 1,6 billion of them. Yes, these fine specimens pop up occasionally in both the Twitter-flow and the comments inbox. Delete/Block. Kapow.

But seriously, is it really that difficult to grasp that extremism can’t be coddled into submission?

Double standards

 
Tabloid newspaper Expressen has once again employed radical leftist hacker group Researchgruppen (the research group) to smear nationalist party SD, the Sweden Democrats.

The last time around they hacked accounts at social media, forums etc. of nurses, lumberjacks and other private citizens. When they found anything objectionable that could be tied to SD, the national newspaper then used the illegally obtained information to hang them out for public shaming.

Researchgruppen brags about being “the Swedish STASI,” with the stated goal of creating vast databases of personal information that can be used to blackmail, humiliate and generally ruin the lives of anyone not subscribing to their leftist worldview.

The group members are well-documented extremists and have multiple convictions for violent hate crimes. But since they provide fodder for the newspapers, they have been granted a peculiar protected status despite breaching pretty much every law in the book when it comes to handling personal information.

This time, they have targeted the court system. In Sweden, juries are not randomly pulled from the voting roster. Instead, they are nominated by the local parties and voted in to as regulars one year at the time.

So Researchgruppen set up an illegal registry of the country’s 6000 jurors, employing their hacking skills to root out every potential dirty little secret, off-color remark and whatever can be used to discredit and destroy someone.

They hit paydirt in 3 cases, ranging from the rather mild (“deporting the rabble” when it come to immigrant drug dealers and violent gangs) to the blatantly racist (Somalis being insane because of inbreeding).

Needless to say, prejudice and racism is problematic when it comes to a court setting, especially if the case involves asylum seekers appealing an application. The law is the law, plain and simple. The judge and jury is merely there to enforce it, and anyone who lets personal bias affect the verdict is unfit to serve. That applies to the racist as well as the leftist who believes there should be no borders whatsoever on that jury.
 
So now they found 3 out of 6000 whose ability to serve should and will be scrutinized. The real problem here is the vast collateral damage. I don’t think the other 5997 jurors are very happy to have had their integrity and privacy raped by decidedly irresponsible hackers. How many closet gays, gamblers, adulterers, pot smokers etc. spilled their guts on what they believed to be anonymous forums like Flashback, only to now live in constant fear? 
 
Since Researchgruppen now has dirt on practically every person in the justice system, what happens if a member of Researchgruppen is brought on trial for anything? Or if someone in the radical left commits a crime and appeals to his friends in Researchgruppen to put pressure on the jurors to get him off the hook?
 
What if Researchgruppen expands its business model? Blackmailing pillars of society is highly profitable, and as long as they provide the newspapers with information about SD members they maintain their shield of “legit research” to keep these massive databases of personal information. 
 
Another aspect of the collateral damage is that the media is now beating the drum for having SD-nominated jurors automatically deemed unfit to serve. This is of course absurd, especially in light of the fact that almost 20% of the population supports SD and the party is set to become the second largest in the country before long. The imbalance in the system would become dire, since the left-slant would be completely out of step with the population. But the media would love nothing better; four out of five journalists are openly leftists as it is, so this would fit their agenda like a glove.

Conclusion: Voting for the wrong political party should be an automatic disqualifier to serve in any capacity in the justice system.

Now, for the other thing that happened just last week. My Vingren, a member of Researchgruppen, was recruited as a researcher to state-owned public service radio SR. The radio is funded by a mandatory fee (in effect, a tax) and has strict rules for impartiality and political independence.

Fredrik Laurin, the manager responsible for the recruitment sees no problem whatsoever in recruiting a known radical leftist with a dire history of illegal activites. When asked about AFA, the violent leftist “Antifascist” network that routinely target people with the wrong political opinions, he shrugged it off comparing membership in the leftist sect to “being a member of a bowling team“.

 
AFA motto: “Dead a**holes can’t vote”

Conclusion: Being an active radical extremist is no hinderance in being handed a giant, tax-paid loudspeaker. 

Sweden facing “systemic collapse” in dealing with ISIS recruitment

  

The Swedish security police SÄPO, the first, last and only line of defense against the growing ISIS-threat, has just released it’s annual report for 2014.

The 84-page report (available as a translateable PDF here) covers Russian espionage, dignitary protection detail and other traditional tasks for this kind of government agency, but one area stands out: Counterterrorism and the surge of Sweden as a primary recruitment base for ISIS terrorists.

“In the past we’ve had issues with perhaps a dozen [Jihadists] over a span of several years, but now there’s suddenly hundreds joining ISIS in a short time period. And the growth curve is trending upwards,” says SÄPO spokesperson Johan Sjöö.

In a separate report from the counterterrorism unit released just a few days prior to the main annual report, it states: “The travel from Sweden to Syria and Iraq has become exceptionally voluminous.

Sweden has adopted an extreme immigration policy in recent years, where the tiny country of less than 10 million has only 2% of the EU population, yet accepts almost 20% of the total immigration volume to the Union. 

Despite the inflow have increased several times over in a few short years, the “red flags” by the immigration bureau remains fairly constant, observes reporter Per Gudmundson in newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. 

Gudmundson, one of the few sensible journalists who dares dipping his toe beyond the line of the politically correct, concludes the Swedish immigration system simply isn’t equipped to handle such vast volumes. As the caseload triples or quadruples, each case gets less in-depth screening for potential security hazards. And as the inflow continues to increase, the word “rubber-stamping” takes the place of “screening” altogether.

Of the more than 81 000 asylum applications as the Immigration Bureau received in 2014, they sent forth only 109 on referral to the security police. 24 of those cases hit paydirt, according to SÄPO.


“[…] we found links to terrorism or intelligence threats, which we judged that the person should not be granted asylum in Sweden. Then it is up to the Immigration Bureau to weigh that risk against the right to asylum. Many remain in the country,” Sjöö remarked.

Excuse me? Oh yes. In this country, even an internationally red-flagged terrorist can be granted asylum. By the bizarre Swedish logic, a person at risk of “inhumane” treatment or death sentence in his home country qualifies for protection. Last year I wrote an article in Daily Caller about two landmark court cases where regular thugs, convicted murderers, were granted asylum and lifetime welfare doleouts because their rightful prison sentences back home were deemed “too harsh”

And as for terrorists? Open doors and open hearts. Here’s an article from neighboring Denmark where they, for good reason, express grave concern over the extreme naivitee of Swedish immigration policy. At least 20 internationally known terrorists were granted asylum in Sweden in 2014 alone, which is a problem for Denmark too considering its capital Copenhagen being only 20 minutes away from Malmö, one of the immigrant hotbeds.

The capital of European ISIS recruitment remains Gothenburg, however. Sweden’s second largest town produces more ISIS-fighters than the entire United States. This baffling statement sounds made up, but it it’s not.

A pantry full of cannon fodder for ISIS” is the headline of this remarkably frank (by Swedish standards) article about the muslim-dominated no-go zones around Gothenburg. The headline is an actual quote by one of the residents of the area. I encourage you to use the translate-feature in your browser and read the article in its entirety for a chilling insight into the total meltdown of societal control of these areas.

When elementary schools have close to 100% immigrant children, and tykes that should be dreaming of becoming astronauts and firefighters instead talk about becoming ISIS martyrs when they grow up, you’re looking at a serious powder keg.

Indeed, Gudmunson summed it up pretty well in his article: “The security police call this a challenge. This isn’t a challenge. This is systemic collapse.”

Sweden’s “good” racism



The word “racist” has been a popular silver bullet for Leftists to silence conservatives for years now, pretty much no matter what the topic is. It can be applied to everything from foreign policy to popular entertainment, which has led to the word being so washed up and diluted that it means pretty much nothing anymore.

Here in Sweden, it is considered perfectly reasonable for a white Leftist person to tell a colored person that he is racist if he does not go with the generally accepted doctrine. It’s Orwellian newspeak at it’s finest. At this point, accusations of racism carries about the same general gist as when kids say: “You’re a doodyhead! Shut up!”

By contrast, real racism is something completely different. It is the belief that groups of people carry a set of distinct qualities based on skin pigmentation and other factors from that group. The Nazis were big on this kind of “scientific” categorization of people, and Sweden has some murky chapters in these regards as well.

The Swedish state institute for race biology was founded in 1922. It studied and documented the perceived racial markers, and actually carried out some 63,000 forced sterilizations of “undesireable” elements of society to maintain racial purity. While the institute was folded into Uppsala university’s genetics dept in 1958, the forced sterilization program remained in effect until 1975. No joke.

With a recent history of such chilling events, one would think that it’d serve as a safeguard against similar ideas of race biology popping up again anytime soon. Not so. The concept is making a smashing comeback, except this time it’s carried out by “the good guys” in the belief that they are promoting multiculturalism.

Swedish public service media SVT recently launched a big campaign to map out and categorize the ethnicity of the decision makers of the biggest Swedish corporations. The idea is to expose those with “insufficient” number non-whites and non-Swedish sounding names and shame them into making amends.

“In order to investigate their ethnic background, we have read resumes, looked at the photos and made ​​other research. In doubtful cases we have also checked with the individuals themselves,” SVT stated as its research methodology.

Tove Lifvendahl, political editor at newspaper Svenska Dagbladet and of Asian descent herself, pointed out that this is a well-intentioned but very slippery slope that ends up back where skulls are being measured again. Because how else will you properly classify all those troublesome half-breeds and non-standard mutts? We need order, discipline and proper data to categorize people, damnit!

Then there’s the shaky assumption that racial multitude is a goal onto itself and an automatic benefit. I’d say that assumption reduces people to interchangeable representatives for their ethnical group rather than respect people’s individual qualities. If Mohammed is the best person for the job, it’s a shame if he is kept out of the board because of his name. But it’s just as big of a shame if Anders is the best person for the job, yet the job is given to Rashid where his main function is to be condecendingly patted on the head and paraded in front of the cameras as a symbol of political correctness. 

Alice Teodorescu, also a conservative writer and immigrant, wrote: “I would like to know which particular unique skills we immigrants possess because of our foreign surname or pigments?”

Others are quite enthusiastic about it. Tobias Hübinette, head of the “critical whiteness studies” at Södertörns Högskola, gives the effort a resounding thumbs-up. He is an immigrant with multiple convictions for violent felonies and made his stance on race quite clear in Creol magazine:

“Let the white race […] perish in blood and suffering!”

To put this guy in charge of any kind of educational seat regarding racial matters makes about as much sense as appointing a KKK grand dragon an immigration bureau judge. Who knows, perhaps it’s just me.

But the Swedish government thinks this is great stuff! Culture minister Alice Bah Kunkhe is leading the way by appointing a group of radical-leftist, racist man-haters as the gatekeepers to all positions serving under the department of culture. The idea is to expand this to all government departments over time.

The group is named Rättviseförmedlingen, roughly translated to the “Fairness Service”. It is run by a woman named Seher Yilmaz. A year and a half ago she wrote the article below, entitled: “Men gives me dry heaves”. 



“Men gives me dry heaves”

Somehow, I am glad I’m not a middle-aged heterosexual white male trying to get any jobs for the culture department in Sweden. If Beethoven was alive he might, just might, land a five-minute slot during daytime TV. After the gay muslim rapping woman has had her two-hour slot, of course.

Oh, and by the way, this is a picture of women’s-rights, anti-sexism crusader Alice Bah Kunkhe herself:
