Sweden’s “Creative Destruction”

The Swedish government is now preparing a law that will force all Swedish municipalities, against their will, to provide public housing for newly arrived refugees.

Well into the 20th century, Sweden was a homogeneous country, where there were hardly any immigrants. Today, given Sweden’s liberal immigration policy, and the rapid and radical demographic developments taking place, Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö, is on the way to becoming a city where ethnic Swedes are in minority. Its immigrant population has gone from 27 percent in 1996, to 42% in December 2012.

There are difficulties for immigrants in Sweden, as everywhere, especially in education and the labor market.

What is missing, however, are other views.

    It’s time to kick out the old people from the government subsidized housing to make room for the “refugees”, since “they need it more.”

    If they could do it in Denmark they can certainly do it in Sweden.

    • Ottawa Eyes

      Toronto has been doing that in public housing for almost two decades now.

    • lolwut?

      Like Ottawa said, they’re already doing it.

      My last trip back to Toronto was to get my Grandmother out of a building that was taken over by Somalians who were smearing shit and dumping garbage on her door.

      • Ottawa Eyes

        They have been setting up 24-hour a day mosques in many private apartments which drive out the tenants who don’t use the mosque or who are bothered by the traffic to and in the illegal mosques.

        I don’t know if that is being permitted in public housing but it is in a lot of privately owned buildings in Toronto and everybody is afraid to talk about it. As long as it is paid for the landlords put up with it afraid of backlash. The tenants who are inconvenienced by this or much worse are driven out of their homes sometimes after decades of living there usually can’t get comparable living. It often appears that it is purposely done to drive out the non-muslim tenants.

        Politicians, the police and bylaw enforcement officers refuse to uphold the law and turn a blind eye to this.

        • lolwut?

          It is on purpose but people are too afraid to report it because there are threats of violence.and the ones that do are ignored by people in charge.

          In some places there have been bullets slid under peoples doors
          along with threatening notes on top of the garbage and shit being smeared on doors.

          As usual the leftie housing advocates are silent about the issue
          they won’t even help because doing so would require paperwork
          that would spell out what is going on.

          A campaign of harassment against white and non-muslim tenants
          has been going on for decades since the first flood of Somalians
          showed up when the civil war started.

          When I went to help my grandmother move there were several others there doing the same thing with their senior family members who had lived in the building for 30+ years.

          I hired several bouncers from local bars to assist with the move
          basically guarding her door and belongings and making it very clear to the other tenants that they’d get a good beating if they touched anything. A least one of the other families hired the guys
          who worked for me when we were done.

          To a lesser extent it’s happening in Vancouver but what they are doing is building new housing and locking out anyone who isn’t an immigrant… Chinese only buildings are very common here.

          The Salvation Army even booted out over 100 homeless people out
          of one their new shelters to make room for 150 Sri-Lankan boat people who showed up in a rusty ship a few years ago.

    I live in Sweden, and this is not even funny. It’s beyond true! What the F are our politicians thinking? Money? Recognition? Are they mad? They can be hanged by Muslims for all I care, when the time comes – hell; I’d even join with some popcorn and watch them hang! They wrote their own fate off, and did not think for a second to proofread what they wrote. Sickening. To hell with psychopathic politicians!

    • Waffle

      So who voted in these politicians? The Tooth Fairy?

    • Hi Guest4468. You should consider writing for our blog, Swedish is very hard to translate.

      If you’re interested email me,

        I would be very interested in hearing an authentic critical view from a Swedish person living in a major city there. Frankly, it appears to me that Sweden will eventually become a historical fact receding further and further into the past at the rate this country is going… Soon it will be a socialist extension of the Muslim Middle East if major change doesn’t happen soon!

        • lolwut?

          Let them go and they can serve as an example to others.

          • Alain

            The problem is we appear incapable of learning from the tragic examples of others. Alberta comes to mind.

          • lolwut?

            War is coming anyways.

    • DMB

      I feel sorry for you!

    • Justin St.Denis

      Swedes support this insanity. Have you evidence to the contrary?

  • Tom Forsythe

    My efforts to sponsor a young Swedish woman for refugee status have failed. They would all rather take their chances with the Muslims.

    • Censored_EG

      I tried to sponsor this Swedish refugee but it didn’t work.

      • Clink9

        My neighbor many years back had a Swedish nannie that looked similar to her. Don’t think they make nannies like that anymore.

        • Censored_EG

          I need a nanny! 🙂

    • Keep trying!

  • Blacksmith

    Somebody jiggle the handle so it will finish flushing itself down the toilet.

  • Exile1981

    Opposing views are forbidden in Sweden, BCF you know that. Now go turn yourself in for re-education for even suggesting such a thing should be allowed.

    • On my way.

      • Exile1981

        Don’t forget to arrange for someone to feed pip while your gone.

    • Alain

      Opposing views are now also forbidden in Canada and the US, so we are quickly catching them up.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Good. We need a prime destination to collect them. Better to cut off a diseased limb then die.

    • Justin St.Denis

      And there are few religious monuments or structures in Sweden to offend the new muslim overlords, so they will be spared the efforts of destruction. How nice for the new muslim overlords!

  • Justin St.Denis

    Suèdes havé been fattened up and kept stupid in readiness for their eventual slaughter, which they will embrace. Sweden and Swedes have become very fucked up by decades of socialism, which kills the human spirit.

    • Their political class is worse than ours!

      • Alain

        Only because neither Justin nor Tom are in power so far.

    “There are difficulties for immigrants in Sweden, as everywhere, especially in education and the labor market.”

    The immigrants who have difficulty with education and the labour market in Sweden, have exactly the same difficulties wherever they are in the world, even in their home country.

  • canminuteman

    ‘Bevara Sverige Svensk’ is the slogan there
    Nordic pride is the thing they share
    To save their Northern country from the Marxist plague
    To stop their country dying they fight every day
    They’re fighting in Uppsala, in Sodertalje they fight
    In Boras and in Malmo, hearts of fire, land of ice
    Hearts of fire, land of ice

    That is from a song from 30 odd years ago. It’s been a long time coming, but I guess the Marxist plague triumphed.

    Here is a musical farewell to what was once a great country.

  • Bataviawillem

    This is in a country where the waiting list for an apartment for swedes is 7 years, the government is completely nuts over there.
