The Failure of the Swedish Establishment

A major threat to Sweden’s security today is the Swedish journalistic establishment: it downplays the migration crisis with ridiculous arguments.

As migrants flooded into Sweden in December 2015, Fredrik Virtanen, a writer for Sweden’s largest newspaper, Aftonbladet, wrote an article entitled, “Have refugees forced you to buy worse red wine?” It is not really dangerous, Virtanen argues, that that Sweden was accepting 160,000 migrants; such migratory movements, he wrote, do not really impact anyone’s life.

Today, however, we know that many people’s lives have been affected by the influx of migrants and that the problems are about more than wine. They are, for example, about sexual assault, the murder of staff in asylum accommodations and chaos in the Swedish school system. But Virtanen was right: red wine is still here.

    It’s increasingly disingenuous to blame this on the media as if people can’t stick their head out the window to see what’s going on. Is there no social media? No. This is what they either wish to happen or blandly accept because they don’t care. This is on them.

    • Good point, but, there is a problem. The more socialistic a country turns, the more the population turns into “Sheeple” regularly fed, easily led, and mentally dead. Socialism is kryptonite for independence of thought and act. Sweden is too far gone to fight it they have ingested the poison. Here in North America we are surrounded, even bathed in it and time is running short.

  • There is some weird compartmentalizing thing going on in northern Europe, maybe particularly in Stepford-utopian, ultra-naive Scandinavia, where most people REALLY believe the “all are equal” socialist dribble they have been brought up with, and therefore seem absolutely unable to connect the dots between obviously related events.

    Open the gates to millions of people from places where basic education, or law and order does not exist, but has been replaced by a sad excuse, horrific, barbaric, sadistic, unfair Islam & sharia. Places where misogyny is as bad now as it was in the bronze age, where people kill each other over 1400 year old nonsense, or over a better pair of shoes, or maybe something to eat.

    The cognitive dissonance is so bad, that even after brutal assaults, or rape, the victims still end up blaming themselves, and the western societies for causing the misery in the Levant and Africa, and not ever doing enough to help the “poor perpetrators”.

    That whole “turn the other cheek” thing is unfortunately not causing the perpetrators to reconsider their antisocial, immoral behaviors, but they laugh and mock the gullible idiots who give up their safety, money, property & sovereignty.

      The misogyny in parts of the Muslim world today are worse than in the Bronze Age. Archaeologists in Jerusalem recently unearthed an official seal dating from Solomon’s temple inscribed (in translation) “Elihana daughter of Gael.” These seals were used in lieu of signatures to stamp bills of sale, contracts and other legal documents.

  • The Swedish establishment does not need Swedes. It is global. Grasp that and you understand all.

    • They certainly aren’t accountable to actual Swedes.

      • Actual Swedes need government too much to hold it accountable. That is the hidden cost of a welfare state.

      That is also the situation in every country in the West, and it continues getting worse.

    Working class Swedes (who have to experience moors on a daily basis) are ok but the middle-class ones are the smuggest bunch of twats on the planet.

    “But Virtanen was right: red wine is still here.”

    For now the alcohol is still there, though once the Shariah police start enforcing no alcohol zones, it’ll be that much harder to find it.
