The Death of Sweden

I still get questions as to why I, being Norwegian, write more about Sweden than I do about my own country. First of all: I do write about Norway sometimes. And second of all: If you look at capital cities alone, Oslo could quite possibly be the worst city in Scandinavia. However, in virtually all other respects, Sweden is worse. And yes, it is every bit as bad as I say it is.

The primary reason why I write so much about Sweden is because it is the most totalitarian country in the Western world, and should thus serve as a warning to others. The second reason is that Sweden, like my own country, now needs some "tough love." Too many Swedes still cling on to the myth of the "Swedish model" while their country is disintegrating underneath their feet. If Sweden the nation is to be saved – if it still can be saved, I'm not so sure – then Sweden the ideological beacon for mankind must be smashed, because vanity now blocks sanity.

According to news site The Local, a judge who hears migration appeals had his house vandalized by left-wing extremists. Threats were sprayed on the walls, red paint was poured over the steps and an axe was left outside his home. "When a judge in a Swedish court has his home vandalised in this way, it is of course very serious," said Ingvar Paulsson, head of the Gothenburg District Administrative Court . The group Antifascistisk Action (AFA) writes on its homepage that the attack was motivated by the situation of Iraqi asylum seekers. The Swedish Board of Migration has ruled that they should be deported if they cannot show that a threat exists against them personally.

It should be noted here that Sweden alone in 2006 accepted almost as many asylum applications from Iraqis as all other European countries did combined. Native Swedes, who live in a country that was one of the most ethnically homogeneous nations in the world only 30 years ago, will be a minority in their own country within a few decades, if current trends continue. Sweden is self-destructing at a pace that is probably unprecedented in history, but for the extreme Left, even this isn't fast enough.

AFA openly brag about numerous attacks against persons who get their full name and address published on their website. According to them, this is done in order to fight against capitalist exploitation and for a global, classless society. Their logic goes something like this: If you protest against Muslim immigration, you suffer from Islamophobia, which is almost the same as xenophobia, which is almost the same as racism. And racists are almost Fascists and Nazis, as we all know, and they shouldn't be allowed to voice their opinions in public. Hence, if you protest against being assaulted or raped by Muslims, you are evil and need to be silenced. If a native Swede is really lucky, he or she will thus first get mugged or battered by Muslims, and then beaten up a second time by his own extreme Leftists for objecting to being beaten the first time. The state does next to nothing to prevent either, of course. Native Swedes who object to a mass immigration that will render them a minority in their own country within a couple of generations have already been classified as "racists," and racists are for all practical purposes outside of the protection of the law.

According to some observers, Islamophobic hatred is on the rise in Europe. Let's have a look at what constitutes "racist hatred." The following is used as an official example of what is considered an Islamophobic hate crime in Sweden: A Muslim family in a Swedish neighborhood asks whether it is possible for them to get something else to eat other than sausages made out of pork. Linda then answers: "No, we live in Sweden." The family asks what she means by that. Linda repeats that "We live in Sweden, and you have to respect that." The man of the family says that "We respect you, why can't you respect us?" Linda then replies that "No, unfortunately not." She laughs and walks away.

Contrast this with an example from 2006, when Chancellor of Justice Göran Lambertz discontinued his preliminary investigation regarding anti-Semitism at the great mosque in Stockholm. He wrote that "the lecture at hand contains statements that are strongly degrading to Jews, among other things, they are throughout called brothers of apes and pigs." Furthermore a curse is expressed over the Jews and "Jihad is called for, to kill the Jews, whereby suicide bombers – celebrated as martyrs – are the most effective weapon." Lambertz thought that the "recently mentioned statements in spite of their contents are not to be considered incitement against an ethnic group according to Swedish law." His conclusions were that the preliminary investigation should be discontinued because this incitement against Jews could be said to originate from the Middle East conflict.

This double standard is not just limited to Jews. Dahn Pettersson, a local politician, has been fined 18,000 kronor for writing that 95 percent of all heroin brought in comes via Albanians from Kosovo. "It is never ethnic groups that commit crimes. It is individuals or groups of individuals," prosecutor Mats Svensson told the court, which found Pettersson guilty of "Agitation Against a Minority Group." Svante Nycander, former editor of daily Dagens Nyheter, stated that "the ruling in Malmö District Court is damaging to freedom of expression. Many will take it as proof that the authorities are afraid of uncomfortable truths, and that lacking reasoned counter-arguments they punish those who speak plainly." In Sweden, saying that Muslim Albanians are behind much of the drug traffic in Europe (a fact) is a crime. Making derogatory statements about the native population, however, is just fine.

Bexhet Kelmeni is of Kosovar Albanian origin and lives in Malmö, the country's third largest city, which is set to become the first Scandinavian city with a Muslim majority in a few years. He thinks that it is important that it has now been established that Dahn Pettersson's assertions were criminal. "I am ashamed that there are such politicians," says Kelmeni, who claims that he has been in contact with hundreds of Albanians and all of them have taken offense. "He needs to learn more about the Albanian culture," Kelmeni says. What he doesn't say is that many of the remaining Swedes in Malmö – the natives have been evacuating, or rather fleeing, the city for years due to rampant violence and harassment – get daily lessons in Albanian culture.

Feriz and Pajtim, members of Gangsta Albanian Thug Unit in Malmö, explain how they mug people downtown. They target a lone victim. "We surround him and beat and kick him until he no longer fights back," Feriz says. They are always many more people than their victims. Isn't this cowardly? "I have heard that from many, but I disagree. The whole point is that they're not supposed to have a chance." They don't express any sympathy for their victims. "If they get injured, they just have themselves to blame for being weak," says Pajtim and shrugs. "Many of us took part in gangs which fought against the Serbs in Kosovo. We have violence in our blood." They blame the politicians for why they are mugging, stating that they are bored. If the state could provide them with something to do, maybe they would stop attacking people. But is the lack of leisure pursuits the only reason why they assault people? "No, it's good fun as well," says Feriz.

Criminal gangs of Albanians thus freely admit assaulting Swedes, but Swedes cannot suggest that there are criminal gangs of Albanians. That's just racist.

The wave of robberies the city of Malmö is experiencing is part of a "war against the Swedes." This is the explanation given by young robbers from immigrant backgrounds. "When we are in the city and robbing we are waging a war, waging a war against the Swedes." This argument was repeated several times. "Power for me means that the Swedes shall look at me, lie down on the ground and kiss my feet. We rob every single day, as often as we want to, whenever we want to." Swedish authorities have done virtually nothing to stop this.

Is there then no racism in Malmö? Yes, there are some nasty cases of Islamophobia. A bus driver was suspended for discrimination and hatred after he allegedly tried to stop a woman from boarding because she was wearing a burka. According to writer Mats Wahl, arson against schools costs more than 300 million kroner a year. An unofficial survey among 52 Swedish municipalities indicated that at least 114 such cases of arson were registered within the first half of 2006, but accurate numbers were hard to come by. At least 139 schools suffered attempted arson during 2002 alone. Björn Vinberg from the fire department in the Malmö area says it is degrading to put out fires again and again in the same immigrant areas, with school kids laughing at them and lighting a new one just afterwards. No doubt, this must be a protest against the institutionalized and pervasive Islamophobia in Swedish society.

In a country where the tax rate is above 60%, higher than in almost any other country on the planet save perhaps North Korea – which incidentally also has almost as much free speech as Sweden – the natives are attacked on a daily basis by immigrant gangs, yet the state seems unwilling to do anything to stop this. Although Muslims openly brag about targeting Jews and Christians, this doesn't constitute a hate crime. But is does constitute racism and a hate crime if Muslims are not presented with halal sausages at all times or allowed to wear a burka wherever they want to.

According to Professor Wilhelm Agrell, Sweden now has a security policy based on the assumption that territorial defense is no longer needed. Military resources are only deemed relevant as political markers in distant conflicts and their own territory has become nothing more than a training ground. Agrell concludes that "after years of existential angst and budgetary black holes, Sweden's military has finally taken down its flag, emptied its stores and fled the field." The few soldiers they do have are in places such as Afghanistan, not at home. Jan Karlsen from the Swedish Police Union warned in 2007 that the underfunded police force would not be able to keep up with organized crime and ethnic tensions for much longer. Meanwhile, police officers are protesting against a new uniform designed to make them appear less aggressive by replacing boots with shoes, making guns less visible and changing the shirts to a softer, gentler color.

In an article from June 2007 with the title "Summertime — rape time," Aftonbladet, the largest daily in Scandinavia, linked the spike in rapes during the summer to the warm weather. The official number of rape charges in Sweden has more than quadrupled during one generation, even more for girls under the age of 15. If this is due to the warm weather, I suppose the Scandinavian rape wave is caused by global warming? The fact that many of the suspects have a Muslim background, which is also proven by statistics from neighboring Norway, is purely coincidental, no doubt. The number of rapes in the Norwegian capital Oslo is now six times as high per capita as in New York.

According to journalist Karen Jespersen, Helle Klein, the political editor-in-chief of Aftonbladet from 2001 to 2007 and a former leading member of the Social Democratic Youth League, has stated that "If the debate is [about] that there are problems caused by refugees and immigrants, we don't want it." Opinion polls have revealed that two out of three Swedes doubt whether Islam can be combined with Swedish society, yet not one party represented in parliament has been genuinely critical of the immigration policies, and there is virtually no real debate about Multiculturalism and Islam.

During a demonstration in Stockholm organized by Islamic and anti-racist organizations in 2006, Helle Klein stood in front of a banner which read "A Sweden for all — Stop the Nazi violence" holding a speech warning against Islamophobia in the media. "Sweden for all" sounds almost exactly like "Sweden for Allah" in Swedish. When leading members of the political and media elites associate Islamophobia with Nazism while remaining silent on the violence committed by Muslim gangs in their own country, they are indirectly providing verbal ammunition to extreme Leftists groups such as AntiFascistisk Aktion, who physically assault critics of mass immigration.

The Brotherhood, an organization of Christian Social Democrats, has friendly relations with the Muslim Brotherhood, just as Klein's Swedish Social Democratic Party had with the Fascist and Nazi regimes prior to WW2. Helle Klein has voiced sympathy for terrorist organization Hamas, the Palestinian branch of the MB, in her editorials, while warning against the threat to world peace posed by Israeli aggression and the Christian Zionist Right in the USA. Hamas is a Fascist organization openly calling for mass murder of Jews. The irony of warning against "Nazi violence" while showing sympathy for an organization that wants to finish what the Nazis started apparently doesn't strike Ms. Klein, who is now studying to become a priest in the Church of Sweden. Her great-grandfather was a rabbi.

The Church of Sweden has announced its willingness to allow gay couples to marry in church, but would like marriage laws to be renamed "cohabitation laws." How Klein intends to reconcile support for gay marriage with support for an Islamic terrorist organization that wants to kill gays beats me, but I'm sure she'll think of something.

The British author Paul Weston believes that Britain's national heart has ceased beating: "Our national soul is hovering indecisively above the operating table. The crash team have been called, but the politically inclined hospital switchboard have told them there is no problem, that everything is under control. The life support boys have heard otherwise, they are hurrying to get there, but other hospital staff members have switched the signage to the operating theatre and killed the lights. It is a big hospital, they only have minutes to get there, they are lost, confused, misinformed, and the clock is relentlessly ticking, and ticking, and ticking…"

I'm inclined to say the same thing about Sweden. The Swedish nation is currently on its deathbed. We can only hope there is life after death after all.

Throw them out already!

Look we all know what the only solution is to preserve Europe. The Muslims must be thrown out NOW, before it's too late.  Sound terrible?  So does the extinction of the Scandinavian culture/race - and that is a guarantee unless these Muslims are removed pronto.

 The Truth About Islam

Sound terrible? No !

No, it does not sound terrible.

An immigrant surreptitiously enters a western country and finds himself in a completely foreign place. He is separated from his family. He does not know anyone. Maybe he does not know the language. He is not wanted by Europeans. He does not care about Europeans. He is not qualified for work. His culture is completely different. His children will probably turn to crime if he stays in Europe. And so on.

--> But we are told it would be harsh not to allow him in !

Now, we send him back home. He is reunited with his family. He knows everybody. He understands them perfectly. It is his culture and his country. He cares about it. He is even interested in the local politics. He can have a personal project that will be part of a bigger project for his country.

--> But we are told that sending him back home is the same as sending him to Auschwitz !

Conclusion: journalists think we are stupid.

Leftists' mutually exclusive goals

"How Klein intends to reconcile support for gay marriage with support for an Islamic terrorist organization that wants to kill gays beats me, but I'm sure she'll think of something."

I'm trying to figure out the mindset of people like Klein, for their goals are obviously mutually exclusive. Maybe it's wishful thinking on their part, or being unwilling to admit that a leftist idea (multiculturalism) is horribly mistaken, or being unwilling to make a choice (between gays and Muslims).

Initially, I thought it was just a matter of pointing out to leftists how dangerous it was to ally themselves with such reactionaries, but I've found that that isn't enough.

It must be like the mindset of progressives during the era of the Nazi-Soviet pact.

Maybe the problem is...

... that the conflicts between Muslims and native Scandinavians occurs in areas where poor Swedes or Norwegians live. There may be a tendency to discount what such people are saying about their new neighbors and to insist that they must be racist.

Certainly here in the U.S. leftists stopped paying attention to the concerns of poor whites back in the 60s.

Best Wishes For Their Safe Return



You have responded to various criticisms of your differences with Fjordman on the future of Sweden issue with coherent and intelligent debate,rather than resort to ad hominem attacks upon your detractors,and for that you are to be commended.

Example: In your response,@ Mike H,you provide weblinks which are thought provoking and deserve further study and debate,and for that  reason alone  I pray for the safe return of your missing umlauts :-).

@ missingmyumlauts

You misunderstand...I have been (mis)characterized as a "Chickenhawk" elsewwhere on this blogsite,and that DID result in a cessation of legitimate debate.Hence,my cry of personal frustration. 

Well certainly I will never

Well certainly I will never characterize anyone as a chickenhawk. Especially considering the price that has been paid by film maker Gogh and Fortuyn. Neither was serving in the military and yet both died fighting for our common cause.

In Response to Fjordman

I have to concur that without any discussion of solutions to resolve the problems Fjordman continually touches on - namely multiculturalism, immigration, political correctness, Islamisation and Islamic criminality in Sweden - these articles of his are repetitious. Though each contains a few updated morsels, they mostly are blends of previous articles he has written and thereby serve to inflame rather than inform.


Surely there are other Swedes (i.e. right-wing and nationalist political organisations) aware of these aforementioned issues who have considered how to deal with them, however, Fjordman has yet to mention them.


At present, there is little I can do for Sweden. Ultimately, Swedes must take charge of their own affairs. Thus, presenting me with regurgitated reports of gang rapes, etc., is not "part of the solution."

Fjordman is a treasure

I am sorry but to expect a journalist to both notice the problems and come up with solutions is a bit much. The most important job we serve is to serve as an alert.

Certainly if we can make suggestions then they are welcome but truthfully while we may have some expertise as observers we are simply citizens when it comes to solutions. What I mean is our opinion should carry no more weight than any other citizen.

Our main job is to see problems, publicize problems and force action...that is plenty enough responsibility thank you. It is the job of each of us as citizens to act locally to correct the issues.

" *?@//*&%" !!!

Is this a variation of the vaunted "Chickenhawk" defense...?

Armchair comment is always used ... to shut down debate.




When one gets tired of a subject, he wishes that discussion would cease concerning it. This means that the subject should become invisible, no longer within the sphere of consciousness of the individual or any others. Isn't this what happened with the world and the middle east? Any disquieting considerations (hatred for the west, etc.) were relegated to a secondary status and just not discussed? Weren't we given a rather abrupt wake up call? I think that despite your desires for a personally peaceful reading regimen, Fjordman should continue. We need to be aware of the threat in all areas.

@Mike H.

The thing is, I am now reading Fjordman's postings for more than a year and his articles are mostly pleasure to read. And I agree with you that he highlighted some issues that were largely unnoticed and underreported by MSM i.e. threat of uncontrolled immigration and what can happen once Left starts their social and cultural 'landscaping'.

But, to quote 'jdm' again, if Swedes themselves don't care, why should we?

Nine million people, 87% of them Lutherans, it's not like place will turn into Swedistan overnight.
And, given Sweden's 'graceful'conduct in WWII and obsession with the quality of Swedish people*, I am not exactly shedding tears for them. They were Fascists practizing eugenics in the past, today they are Socialists conducting large-scale social engineering experiment. Two sides of the same coin.

There lays my main gripe with Fjordman's writings about Sweden. The underlying premise in his writings is that Sweden is Western democracy which mutated or was hijacked into becoming Transnational Multiculturalist society and thus became enemy of its people.
Not so fast, take a closer look at Sweden's recent history and you will find one mean and very totalitarian state with a long record of severe repression against the citizens (see links below). There was never a mutation, or conversion, the totalitarian nature of Swedish state goes back for at least 80-100 years, it just changes flavor with times.
* - juicy titbits of information about Norway in last two links, maybe Fjordman can expand on the topic


"a local politician, has been fined 18,000 kronor for writing that 95
percent of all heroin brought in comes via Albanians from Kosovo. "It
is never ethnic groups that commit crimes. It is individuals or groups
of individuals," prosecutor Mats Svensson told the court"


.IMHO, this is beyond stupidity.  What does it take to make a reasonable discernment about such a situation?  100% of all heroin by Albanians? 100% of immigrants from Kosovo import heroin? (I'm avoiding the word Albanian, but actually there're  no doubt many ethnic groups in Kosovo, and "Albanians from Kosovo" narrows the investigation and isolates the possible commonality of heroin smuggling therefore its root cause.  Isn't it true that people with same language and custom and ethnicity work well together and "copy" or hire each other?


Furthermore, was the journalist's sentence an untruth or a fact?

It is already too late

What does Fjordman or anyone who thinks as he does propose to do at this point--in any part of Western Europe. Deport the Muslims, re-educate them in re-education camps?....It seems to me that there are too many of them now to even think of this, even if a country like Sweden would countenance the idea of a 're-education camp',...which I doubt.

What is left is the 'Final Solution'.

In fact, I am currently reading a mystery by a Swedish writer (in English) who points out that the nazi sympathisers in Sweden before WW2 said that their country was being overridden with Jews, etc. etc. They 'understood' the plight of their fellow aryans in Germany. He compared it with sentiments being expressed today by neo-nazis in Sweden!

Was it a Mankell's mistery? His early works are priceless....

I agree with Sagredo. Fjordman has a good overview of local 'Climate' but , instead of being a memeber of an Online Armchair Warrior Coalition, he could maybe go out and try to make a difference in Swedish, sorry...Norwegian lifestyle

He keeps filling 'Reports' but maybe it would be more interesting for us non -Swedes or perhaps non-Scandinavians, or ultimately,.. non-Norvegians,.. if he could just be quiet for the moment and start thinking about .....


Yes, I am reading Henning Mankell's "The Reutrn of the Dancing Master" . Not finished. He emphasizes the huge pro Nazi sentiment in Sweden before the war. He also has a character say that before the war all Sweden's ideals came from Germany, after, from the U.S.! (Boy that was a surprise!) Short lived wouldn't you say?

Anyway, perhaps Fjordman claim that Sweden is the most authoritarian nation in Europe shows historical resonance.

Perhaps language is a

Perhaps language is a barrier here so I want to tread carefully.

instead of being a memeber of an Online Armchair Warrior Coalition, he could maybe go out and try to make a difference in Swedish, sorry...Norwegian lifestyle

Is this a variation of the vaunted "Chickenhawk" defense the left is so proud of in the United States. You know where if you are not a participant you cannot comment on it? There is a reason why the Freedom of the Press is the very first Freedom protected from governmnent obstruction in the United States constitution...Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
It is the most important. It is the most important in part because of the power of journalists. So that armchair bit fjordman does so well is crucial.

He keeps filling 'Reports' but maybe it would be more interesting for us non -Swedes or perhaps non-Scandinavians, or ultimately,.. non-Norvegians,.. if he could just be quiet for the moment and start thinking about .....

Ah ha so there is the true meaning behind your veiled insult, armchair warrior, you want him silenced.

Dear Mr. Legrand

I read and enjoy Fjordman's posts very much. Some of his writings on emerging 'trends' in Scandinavia were eye-openers (i.e. on rape & immigration) but I find his obsession with Sweden a tiresome affair. A totalitarian state, country is dying, immigrants are on the rampage,etc....fine. It's worth remembering that Swedes voted and democratically elected their government and maybe, just maybe, they prefer things as they are and not as Fjordman would want them to be. As 'jdm' pointed out: "if they don't care, I'm having trouble understanding why I should care."

A Norwegian blogger looks at Swedish society and finds only negatives to write about. I find that a bit odd, to say the least.

I guess 'armchair'comment hit close to home :-).


By default, like most of the people visiting and posting on BJ (except active members of Armed Forces), I am also an armchair general, hence the smiley. Self-depreciating joke that wasn't that effective (here it comes again) :-).


"A Norwegian blogger looks at Swedish society and finds only negatives to write about. I find that a bit odd, to say the least."

Why is that odd? Euros do it to America all the time. The odd thing about that, however, is the fact that Europe is a dead man talking.

Odd?...this time with warning

next time will include: 'Warning! Heavy dose of sarcasm ahead!' so that there is no confusion.
Norwegian opinionating on Sweden is for me not at all different from, say, Serb expressing views on Croatia.

Waste of Time

Mr. Legrand, I think you're attributing far to much substance to the message on which you commented most recently. It's not a language problem, there's no there there.


"What is left is the 'Final Solution'."

Either that, or the Swedes go the way of the Eloi.

"Not with a bang, but with a whimper".

I Don't Understand

Fjordman, are the Swedes unaware, in denial, or do they just have a different take than you?

You have been writing about this deteriorating situation in Sweden (and to a lesser extent, Norway) for months now. Years, even. From what I can tell things are not only getting worse, but those like Helle Klein who are greasing the skids, so to speak, are becoming more overt.

At some point in time, the common, non-elite Swedes will have to react. They continue to vote in the same parties with the same opinions. The continue to buy or otherwise support the Swedish media elite that propagates these opinions. They continue to stand by and watch as the Swedish People's Party, insofar as I know, a legal political entity, is hounded, harassed, and, well, persecuted. In short, while it seems from your reports that a weak majority or perhaps only a minority of Swedes know what is happening to their country, they simply do not care.

And if they don't care, I'm having trouble understanding why I should care.

It Aint Over Yet

"In that story above one can see the result of the lefts assault on our laws in the United States. Pretty soon we will resemble Sweden, but we won't know it of course because by then we will have lost our means of alerting one another to our plights."

We're going to stop that slide towards European totalitarianism.

How do you mean we won't be able to "alert" each other?

In the United States we are sliding towards you....

Right now in the United States the left is making another push to institute the "fairness doctrine" because of the damage done to their agenda by outlets like talk radio and blogs. They may mock Rush Limbaugh but they fear him as well. But that is only a start.

What I mean, the left never succeeds, if that is the word to use, unless they control the press in all of its permutations. In Europe you can see the creeping censorship (some say it isn't creeping) starting to stifle debate. That same thing will happen in the States but when it starts happening here either we will have a revolution or the world will go dark, for a very long time. Once we reach that stage it will happen very quickly since any delay will enable those of us willing to fight to organize. We will not be able to support each other if only by prayers and kind words. A revolution is very unlikely.

This is why I remain in a foul mood...

One has to admire the tactics of the left. No not the goals but the pure tactics. They have overwhelmed those on the right who believe in truth, justice and in my case the American way. We will be forced to go to war with them before we can defeat the Islamofacists.

So sad. That's what happen

So sad. That's what happen when people think that they have born for pleasures and happiness. After all, it is swedes who voted for socialists. In Russian, "swedish family" means a bisexual family of three people. Russia has paid for its idiotism. You have to see the fruits before you can understand how silly you've been. Hope, swedes will be able to recover.

"It is never ethnic groups that commit crimes.It is individuals or groups of individuals" - Mats Svensson.

Never? What if those individuals or groups of individuals are all of the same ethnicity and their 'criminal' action is expressly committed, directly or indirectly, in the name of a particular ethnic cause celebre?
