Sweden used as warning example by Norway police

As a current resident of Sweden, I sometimes find myself questioning my own sanity. All these problems I blog about are right there in the open for anyone to see and getting worse by the year, yet media and politicians act as if everything is hunky-dory.

Most people on the street also appears to be completely oblivious to details like the enormous increase of burning cars in the ghettos, the 1472% increase in rapes and the ever bolder gangs choking their enclaves with drugs and violence.

So I find myself wondering, am I missing something? Why aren’t people reacting? Is it really reasonable that so many are in a state of denial? Or am I somehow misinterpreting all this?

That’s why it’s oddly reassuring that the neighboring Nordic countries are in the same boat. Denmark has voiced concerns about the utterly weak background check of immigrants from the middle east, fearing radical Islamists entering Sweden as asylum seekers with the intent of building Scandinavian terror cells. My very first post on this blog was about a Danish politician openly pleading for Sweden to come to its senses.

Norway isn’t too pleased either, and they dare speak openly about the problems brewing in the cities of their neighbor…

    I’m sure all of Sweden’s new diverse residents will respect the Norway-Sweden border.

    Everyone has (had?) to tolerate Sweden being held up as an example by the left for like, ever. Now it’s the right’s turn. Maybe Sweden’s role is to forever serve as an example to others.

      Good riddance to them.

      An example to others is exactly what they should be.

    It’s called Stockholm Syndrome, funnily enough.

    As long as all these pathologies are confined to no-go neighborhoods that don’t directly affect the lives of ethnic Swedes who live outside, nobody will give a shit.

    I told you, Norway is not as insane as Sweden.

    • El Martyachi

      Nowhere with a latin alphabet is as insane as Sweden.

        I’ll even venture all of those using the Cyrillic alphabet might be less crazy, maybe not by much, but at least they are not suicidal.

    I hope the subject blog and those like it gain traction in Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia. Cause the mainstream media there is lying to them.
