“What hell is happening in Scandinavia”?

From Giulio Meotti at Gatestone,

On January 12, the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten published an article about Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and his senior adviser: “The Jew Kushner reportedly pushed for David M. Friedman as the new ambassador to Israel”, Aftenposten wrote. The newspaper had later to apologize for calling Kushner “the Jew”.

What hell is happening in Scandinavia, whose countries, Norway and Sweden, are bastions of political correctness, champions of multiculturalism and, according to the Global Peace Index, the most “peaceful” countries in the world? “The most successful society the world has ever known”, however, as The Guardian labelled Sweden, has a dark side: Israel-slandering and anti-Semitism.More.

Reality check: The purpose of political correctness has always been to enforce lies by threats of harm. Genuine openness to others is slowly replaced by Correct opinion. After Correctness has become a way of life, it is comparatively easy to change the script for the Two Minute Hate. And there is always a Two-Minute Hate.

Scandinavia is a pushover precisely because it is so “tolerant,” that is, value-free. Values can counter other values but non-values can’t.

    And the media is upset that Trump mentioned Sweden in his speech. Because the media is reporting that Swedish politicians are puzzled by Trump’s remarks. They state that everything is fine in Sweden. No problem with refugees there. And the Untied Church and the Anglican Church have always had a problem with Israel. Along with bans on products from so called occupied lands, they also ban and rant against Christian Zionism. In fact there have been stories in their magazines condemning Christian Zionism.

    • Damn that Trump!

      • Chaos, conservatism, liberalism, and back to chaos.

        Sweden is returning back to chaos – the end result of liberalism.

    With the country coming apart at every nail one would think that a million Muslims washed ashore. But the reality is that in a country of fewer people than New York City it only took 200,000 ‘refugees’ and a population greeting them like the Austrians greeting the Nazis with parades in 1938 to bring the whole place to its knees. You always have to keep in mind that this is not purely a ‘refugee’ problem. It’s a problem of the host society willing and happy to cut its own throat. It’s not so much that they’re willing to ‘welcome’ in these people it’s that the first thing they do to accommodate them is harass, arrest, fine, expel, negate and abolish their own citizenry.

    Wow. That’s 100% pure Guardian insanity right there.

    They have made their bed and now must sleep (die) in it. Those that bless Israel shall be blessed, and those that curse Israel shall be cursed. Just saying….

    Funny, but the Swedish Academy keeps awarding Nobel Prizes to Jews. Three of them last year, in fact.

      As long as the awards were merit based who cares? You should only start worrying if the Nobel committee decides to make its awards according to a roster of gender and ethnic based criteria. Unfortunately, that already appears to be the case with the peace prize.
