In this film clip, an immigrant, that regularly posts video clips in Swedish, finally decided to post a clip in English. His nickname is “An Angry Wog talks” (En arg blatte talar). This indicates his frustration over the state of affairs here in Sweden.

Here he tells the world how unique Sweden is in its insanity. Watch it and se how the Swedish people are treated in their own country. Feel the horror!

I cannot help publishing this video clip from the American CBN News on Sweden. As a dissident I must admit that this is a depiction that hits the mark completely, at least to all the inhabitants that have seen through media’s dishonest reporting, which is the case for more and more Swedes today. Sweden has become a mental prison for those who do not agree with the establishment.

The clip has – of course – not been mentioned in Swedish mainstream media. This is the ordinary mode of procedure, when the establishment (of which media is a part here) is criticized.

Furthermore, to have the nerve to use the regime-critical news blog Exponerat as a source (quickly viewed at the beginning when citing the UN report) would give any mainstream media journalist the creeps and make them refuse to involve in any debate.

For this is media’s new strategy. Their new catchphrase is:

dare to refuse taking the debate

This is what they keep on repeating in order to pursuade themselves that they are good people. In that way they avoid touch upon the fact that the core mission of a journalist is to debate and discuss. Their ability to expressing insults like “racists”, “nazis” and “xenophobic” and suchlike is however as vigorous as ever.

The Danish editor Hedegaard at the end is fully correct when he says:

That is a very bad situation because you live then in a country where you cannot solve any problems. You cannot even meniton the problems.

I do not post texts very often any longer. But don’t think that everything in the Swedish garden is lovely. On the contrary, Sweden is becoming more and more insane as time passes. This time, I cannot help publishing a text that has already been written and published, because I do not want my international readers to miss this one. You can say that the text shows what is the first step towards a Swedish dictatorship. You won’t believe your eyes!

Adelsohn-Liljerot

Minister for Culture, Lena Adelsohn-Liljeroth

Swedish minister for Culture, Lena Adelsohn-Liljeroth (Liberal), is critical of a Parliamentary committee and its decision to uphold the rules stating that press subsidies may not depend on newspapers’ political content. According to the responsible minister, a “democracy clause” should be included in the new legislation, barring “immigrant-critical” news outlets from receiving the statutory subsidies.

”One example is the debate that occurred while the pronounced immigrant-critical newspaper Nationell Idag received press subsidy” Adelsohn-Liljenroth writes in an article published on SVT Debatt [the offcial site of Swedish television, where I, by the way, have been banned from commenting].

She notes that it was against this background [that Nationell Idag was granted press subsidy] that she gave the Parliamentary Committee on Press Subsidies the directive to determine whether rules should call for ”respect for the ideals of democracy” or otherwise ensure that subsidies are justified from a ”democratic perspective”. The wordings denote the sharing of views on migration policy proposed by the Swedish government, most political parties and mainstream media. However, the ministerial directive to the committee resulted in an unwelcome conclusion. Mrs. Adelsohn-Liljeroth: ”The Committee concluded that such a requirement could be seen as a way to hinder the printed word. I disagree with that assessment”.

Now the government threatens to introduce a political section in the subsidy rules nevertheless – even though all members of the relevant parliamentary committee oppose it. ”I am now awaiting the respondents’ views on the proposal of the Press Subsidies Committee. I hope the responses provide a basis for imposing a democracy clause in the new press subsidy regulation,” Adelsohn-Liljeroth concludes.

Dear readers,

This blog is not updated often nowadays. It won’t be either henceforth. My work in order to try to save this country is restricted to flyer campaigns and discussing with people. But I cannot withhold this video clip from you. Sweden has disgraced itself internationally because of the riots last week. But don’t believe that it all has ceased by now. Every night there are cars on fire and other subversive mischief in the immigration suburbs. In the wake of the first riots, in all 70 suburbs and places have been struck so far by the consequences of Sweden’s downright failured immigration policy.

A politician, member of one of the ruling parties (Olle Engström in Borås), had a letter to the editor published yesterday in the newspaper Borås Tidning, in which he rejected the uncontrolled immigration policy and dreaded that Sweden shortly would fall into a religious civil war if nothing is done, like Lebanon and such countries.

Today, he was excluded from his party, Moderaterna (“the Moderates”).  A fellow party member had today a letter to the editor published in the same newspaper, where he maintained that “it is not the immigration that gives frightening consquences for the society; it is the blind criticism without nuances of it”.

I mention this just to show you how completely impossible it is to talk about the quantity of immigrants that Sweden can embrace and the results of the quantities received so far. So despite nationwide riots, we are still not allowed or able to talk about it, unless we want to be labelled racists, foremost by the media and the journalists. This is,  in fact, an indication of Sweden’s severe predicament.

For a very long time, there has been some kind of limit to what the media publishes. It has certainly been very flexible. But it has been there. Let us call it the border of shame. Ahead of the 2010 election it loosened up considerably. Now it has been crossed by a wide margin in a manner that gives me shivers down the spine. The plug has been pulled, all dams have burst. Now the unadulterated hatred flows freely, with the silent consent of all official bodies. The journalists are stoning their own people – and none of them stand up and say STOP – enough is enough!

In Länstidningen, a social democratic newspaper in Östersund, the Sweden Democrats party leader Mr. Jimmie Åkesson is pictured as a cockroach. Behind him stands a pest control worker wearing protective clothing and gas mask while spraying deadly poison gas from a canister marked with the symbols of all the other seven parliamentary parties.

The Sweden Democrats'' leader depicted as a cockroach

The Sweden Democrats” leader depicted as a cockroach

The symbolism could not be clearer. Dissidents are to be exterminated. Sweden Democrats are pests that shall be killed with poison gas. The goal is clear: the party is to be wiped out by any means necessary. The hatred is breaking all boundaries. I cannot recall that I ever have seen a Swedish party leader depicted as vermin to be exterminated. Mr. Olof Palme and Mr. Torbjorn Fälldin and several other Swedish politicians were the subject of a healthy amount of political cartoons at the time. But never, ever with a threat of harsh and sudden death programmed in.

The historical parallels are terrifying
Länstidningen’s low water mark is not satire. It is pure and unadulterated evil that flows from the editorial page. The historical parallels are horrifying. The only archetypes the cartoon can be associated with are the Nazi hate pictures of Jews in the 1930s. Those images paved the way for the gas chambers at Auschwitz, Sobi Bor and Bergen-Belsen and the execution of millions of Jews, mentally retarded and mentally ill. Are we 70 years later to go down that path again? Should hatred against dissenters legitimize extinction? Have we learned nothing seven decades after one of history’s greatest massacres?

“The worst example of misanthropy”
The cartoon is created by Mr. Kjell Nilsson Mäki and illustrates a wishy-washy and intellectually inferior editorial by Ms. Ida Nilsing. After the publication on Saturday, Länstidningen has been stormed by hundreds of angry and outraged comments and emails. In a letter to the newspaper’s editor in chief and responsible publicist, Mr. Lennart Mattsson, a reader writes:

I have not seen a worse example of misanthropy anywhere in Sweden throughout my life. Länstidningen Östersund should not with a single word criticize a party that wants to have political debates since Ida Nilsing and the rest of you at Länstidningen wants to exterminate by gas and physically annihilate the Sweden Democrats – probably because you are not up to “taking the debate.

You would rather murder people than debate with them. Who made the cartoon? What political affiliation does a person have who wants to gas others to death?

Why is it that you cannot produce an editorial that contains something worth reading? Do you lack staff? Are there no reasonably intelligent people employed by the newspaper? Or are you so bloodthirsty that you chose the worst person you could find to write up the bland text?”

Länstidningen: “We are proud”
Länstidningen today responded to the outcry by stating that it is “proud to offer our readers something other than bland portraits of politicians who hold press conferences.”

We are also proud to be one of the few newspapers that keep the tradition of political cartoon satire alive. On Saturday’s editorial page Jimmie Åkesson was drawn as a cockroach that would be exterminated by a pest control worker, sent by the other parliamentary parties. LT’s artist, Kjell Nilsson-Mäki, has explained that he wanted the cartoon to show how the old established parties, despite persistent attempts, have failed to combat the Sweden Democrats. Given this explanation, the illustration is reasonable. But, and herein lies the problem, the illustration and the text have two different aims, which causes the whole to become blurred and open to misunderstanding, especially if one wants to misunderstand.

Survives at taxpayer benevolence
Länstidningen is one of many social democratic newspapers that generates massive losses. The newspaper cannot survive on selling their products that fewer want to buy. LT is surviving due to taxpayers’ benevolence in the form of state press subsidies. This year, the paper received a total of 16,861,000 kronor (approx. 2.5 million USD) in operating subsidies and 361,950 kronor (approx. 55.000 USD) in distribution support. A grand total of 17,222,950 kroner. More than 17 million in state aid to produce death threats against the leader of a democratically elected parliament party.

Länstidningen scandal picture marks a worrying shift in the media’s approach. The plug has been pulled. This signals a brutal escalation of violence and persecution against all who sympathize with the Sweden Democrats’ policies or vote SD since the other seven parties, with their ignorance of vital and crucial issues for the country, do not give them any other choice. Not only should it be open season for death threats against SD’s leader, it is also about time to persecute the 5.7 percent, or 340,000 voters who voted for SD in the 2010 election, says music critic Mr. Po Tidholm in Sunday’s SR (state controlled radio broadcaster) “Good morning world”.

“The big problem is the voters’

His view is that Swedish writers and commentators have “held back” for two years, but are now finally wallowing in expletives and vivid descriptions filled with adjectives regarding SD after Expressen’s (major tabloid that recently exposed a 2 year old video that showed some senior SD MPs behaving badly after a wet night) outstanding work.

“There is suddenly energy and joy in the debate and a general sense of relief” notes Mr. Po Tidholm. Now only one problem remains, and it is major:

The only ones that get off scot-free are the voters. It feels somewhat lame. It is, after all, they who have caused this mess. The presence of a xenophobic party did not became a serious democratic problem until the citizens decided to vote them into the assemblies.

It is “the regular Swedish voters, who – if one is to believe current polls – increasingly feel that SD has the answers to their questions” – who, according to Mr. Po Tidholm, are the problem.

The statistics claim that SD voters are usually low-skilled unemployed men, living in rural areas. This in turn makes them a little hard to pick on, since most media people, of which nearly one hundred percent are white, urban middle-class people, after all, have a some anxiety about their position of power, residence and socioeconomic status. The class gap is simply a little too wide.

“People are fucking stupid”
Mr. Po Tidholm considers himself to have a free pass by his choice of residence. He lives in the countryside in Trönödal in Söderhamn in Hälsingland. There, SD got 11.6 percent of the votes in the 2010 election and was thus “the most SD infected north of Blekinge” in Mr. Tidholm’s words. After much pondering, he has reached the conclusion that the simplest way for him to relate to this political reality is with some professional distance. “But basically, I’m tired and angry and think that people are fucking stupid,” he says.

“Those who farts loudly during dinner”

One conclusion that could be drawn by the success of New Democracy (political party that had a brief stay in parliament 20 years ago) was that there were a considerable number of Swedes who for various reasons want to be those who farts loudly during dinner, ruining the mood with tasteless jokes and use their voting rights to fuck with the so-called establishment. Should these people’s opinions suddenly be respected just because they happen to be represented in Parliament?

And then Mr. Po Tidholm delivers the conclusion that is pressing and must be presented:

So what am I getting at? The hard words should reasonably also be directed at those who have voted for these jerks.

More poison gas against dissidents!
Thanks, that hit the bull’s eye. More contempt for “stupid low-skilled unemployed men living in rural areas”! They are getting off far too easy. Go get the morons! More persecution, more hatred! Bring out the guns against “those who farts loudly during dinner, ruining the mood with tasteless jokes and use their voting rights to fuck with the so-called establishment”! More poison gas against dissident roaches!

The thing that Mr. Po Tidholm and others in the Swedish PC elite fears more than anything else is that the Sweden Democrats’ policies are winning supporters in significantly larger groups than the stupid men in rural areas; academics, intellectuals, writers, journalists, doctors, police officers, nurses, social workers, officials, actors, artists. It’s not quite as easy to openly despise and want to gas to death people belonging to the same social class as yourself as it is to spew contempt on farting low-skilled unemployed men living in rural areas.

What Länstidningen and Mr. Po Tidholm do is not only to descend down to the level of mud wrestling. They also kill the democratic discourse. Without conversation, democracy does not exist. When the words run out and only hatred remains, then we are in very serious trouble.

Now I wonder just one thing: when will the gas chambers be built?

Dear reader,

Since it is Draw Mohammed Day today, I want to publish this little thing that I found on the Internet. It has been produced in order to support the Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has been threatened to death several times and live under constant police protection, because of his little sweet Mohammed roundabout dog.

The roundabout dog was a Swedish phenomenon some years ago, when Swedish citizens put home made dogs in the middle of the roundabouts in order to make them more nice-looking. The roundabout dogs could be very imaginative and Mr Vilks’ dog was just another sort of these nice pieces of art normally made by the ordinary man.

In this painting, Vilks roundabout dog has been placed in a central place in the village, illuminated by the ominous moonshine that could be Europe’s future if we don’t wake up now.

So, enjoy this painting as long as it is possible. Who knows what tomorrow will bring to us, as long as we are not allowed to utter anything critical about this religion.

Lars Vilks, the Swedish artist, controversial in certain circles because of his drawing of Mohammed as a roundabout dog, underwent yet another Muslim attack at a lecture at Uppsala University. On 21 February. Film clips can be watched here and here. Vilks held a lecture on freedom of speech in art. It was the Islamic Culture Society and Karlstad’s Young Muslims that on beforehand had objected to this lecture.

When Vilks showed a picture that was controversial for some of these persons in the audience, this group of them raised and started to scan “Allah akbar” and threw eggs and snowballs at Vilks. The police acted in a very lenient way, which you can see in the video clip. The control of the audience before the lecture was lax, no search of the attendants, according to an eye-witness. No policemen were even standing at the entrance door. Afterwards the public relations officer from Varmland’s police force stated: “We have identified all the persons, but have not yet made up our minds if the event will lead to a report”.

Another eye-witness: ”It was very alarming to see the police that gawky not doing anything with these assailants that assaulted Vilks. After the lecture the Muslims stood completely indifferent. The racist card did its job. One of the Muslims shouted ”you take us because you are a racist” and then the policeman ignored it all”.

As late as January three men of Somali descent, that had planned to kill Vilks, were acquitted. In the light of this, shouldn’t the police be somewhat more attentive?

Swedish media were very careful never to reveal that it was Muslims that interrupted the Uppsala lecture. The official video clip had been pixled to conceal the descent of the perpetrators. Vilks himself wrote about it on his blog (here, in Swedish, though) and an egg that wasn’t crashed was turned into Mohammed.

Dear blog reader,

As I mentioned in my last blog post, this one will contain an appeal from a despairing Swedish citizen, who wants to inform people outside Sweden on what is going on in this country. I recognize his feelings, which are exactly the same that made me start this blog.

In order to help him to give his message a broad dispersion, I publish his text here. He would also like you to contact him in order to make contacts around the world. So here comes his letter:

Let me introduce Avpixlat (AP), a politically incorrect blog that reveals the truth about all things that mainstream media in Sweden don´t dare to write about. It is based on facts, articles and official government statistics, that always can be checked. It is Sweden’s biggest political blog: http://avpixlat.info/

The world outside Sweden need to get informed on the existence of the site AP where everyone can see how Sweden is being flooded with, mostly Muslim, migrants, searching for a better life. But they are not refugees, which the government claim that they are. 95% of them have no passports when they arrive in Sweden, so their stories can not be verified.

Avpixlat (AP) reports on these problems and many others, objectively, honestly and accurately. AP does the job that the politically correct mainstream media don´t. So AP is a pain in the but for media, politicians, criminals and many, many more, since these later are now being examined.

Swedish (mainstream) media cover up the real consequences of the multicultural utopian society: parallel societies, murders, sex crimes, honor killings, gang rapes, assaults, robberies, arson, social misery, youth criminality and forced marriages.

There is a widespread nepotism in the Swedish society and there is an unhealthy symbiosis between the media and the politicians. SVT (Sweden’s Television) and SR (Sweden’s Radio, both public service companies) are so politically correct that you feel sick when you once have seen through the hypocrisy. These are no conspiracy theories, but facts. Just follow the site AP for a period of time and then decide. Frustrated citizens may comment a little out of line and at once Swedish media take every chance to dismiss AP as a racist/xenophobic/islamofobic hate blog. This is always just another attempt of theirs to belittle and ridicule dissidents, but take a look at the articles and their high content of facts.

During the Islamist suicide bombing in December 2010 here in Stockholm, international media were searching for quick, accurate and objective information, facts and eyewitness reports. In order to obtain this crucial information international media visited the AP’s predecessor site called “Politiskt Inkorrekt” (PI), today succeeded by Avpixlat (AP), due to it´s reputation of high quality and professionalism.

Newspapers like The New York Times, Le Monde, Le Figaro, The Daily Telegraph, perhaps your and other big newspapers in countries all over the world visited PI since the blog was not weighted with the ordinary silence in these matters. All the Nordic countries, Denmark, Norway and Finland, followed “Politiskt Inkorrekt” (PI) minute by minute. PI was by the way first in Sweden to publish the picture of the suicide bomber days before the others.

Almost all journalists are living in nice apartments, in nice neighborhoods, totally disconnected with reality. They are so politically correct and spineless that they never dare to criticize all the obvious problems, afraid of being “troublesome”, since Sweden is the land of consensus and no one wants to stand alone outside of the flock of sheep . So ordinary people say: “yes, yes” in public, but “no, no” behind closed doors among CLOSE friends.

Commentary fields in newspapers are being closed down, not for foul language, but when comments criticize for example the immigration policy (the biggest taboo of them all). But according to media and politicians there are only good things coming out of immigration. The commentary fields tell another story though, “So we’d better close them down” is the motto of Swedish newspapers. Newspapers have further stopped having polls on different topics dealing with immigration, fearing that people will answer “wrongly” (not enough positively on the immigration policy).

Swedish media and politics apparently don´t do their tasks correctly or honestly. The media don´t criticize or investigate politicians, and our politicians are not working for the good of Sweden. So Sweden is sinking fast and I could go on for hours. But this is something that is hidden from the everyday Swede. Sweden looks pretty on the outside, but under the surface it is actually quite rotten.

The Swedish state has a balanced economic foundation, but a portion of the Swedes struggle, since there is a redistribution of wealth going on since 2006, which leads to the fact that Sweden is rapidly becoming a divided/fragmented country between “the haves and the have-nots”. For the first time in the modern history of Swedish society, a class of poor people emerges and many others just make ends meet.

AP success was expected. Avpixlat.info was launched the 23 of October and is already the 179th biggest site in Sweden, It was ranked as the 65th biggest site in Sweden for a period. It is always among th top 100 at Alexa.com. On the 18 November it was ranked at place 130 at Alexa. (This article was written on the 12 of November). On the 9 December it was ranked at place 87 at Alexa. However, AP is written in Swedish but please use Google translate to form your own opinion.

There is a logic reason why the site is so successful. People are apparently fed up reading lies or badly written half-truths. Nowadays journalists in Sweden are people’s laughing stock. They have zero credibility, a poor standard, shows incompetence, lack objectivity and the list goes on and on. According to surveys, Swedes have a 3% trust in Swedish journalists, and you see that there is a reason why.

AP contains a lot of material of scandalous behavior, privatized healthcare system in ruins, welfare state down the drain, more than 30% youth unemployment, drug abuse, crime, gang rapes unheard of before, cars and schools burning unheard of 10 years ago, schools where there are no children with Swedish as their mother language and that it takes on average 10 years for an immigrant to find their first job. AP describes the poor and ghetto like “no go zones” suburbs that were only three 20 years ago, and that have increased to over 170 today, where unemployment is 70% in the worst areas.

So please have a look at the AP site and follow the Swedish experiment, and at the same time you can find material for many spectacular articles and blog posts.

Hope to hear from you and see many articles on Sweden, with an objective, correct, sincere, true, reflection of Sweden or some Swedish phenomena and not the usual sugar-coated low quality and deceptive journalism of the Swedish journalists. And I hope you have the time to write to me. If you have any questions just e-mail me and I will try to help you if you need information about Sweden, facts, government statistics or interesting academic research etc.

Yours sincerely,
Oraklet (the Oracle)

In the wake of the despicable terror attacks in Oslo, the predictable hate speeches against those who criticize Sweden’s immigration policy have already begun. I am not going to waste time on quoting them; let us just note that the hate mongers who are trying to capitalize on the Oslo massacre typically were very quick to say that the suicide bomber in Stockholm was a “mad loner” who did not represent Islam. When an equally “mad loner” strikes, who happens to be critical of immigration, then all of a sudden everyone who may have uttered a critical word of Sweden’s immigration policy is guilty by association.

The leftist hate mongers are also conspicuously silent on the arrests in Denmark of Islamists – Swedish residents, by the way – who planned a terror attack on a Danish newspaper.

Terrorism is terrorism, just as totalitarianism is totalitarianism. It does not matter who the Oslo madman was before he set off on a killing spree – as soon as he triggered that bomb he crossed the same line as the Islamists did on 9/11, or in Madrid 2004, or in London 2005. He turned people around him into instruments for an ideology. Just like the Islamists preach hatred by killing infidels, Anders Breivik preached hatred by killing people who were just as innocent as the victims in the World Trade Center in New York or on the commuter trains in Madrid.

And just like the jihadists in Iraq have used Islam as an excuse to kill innocent Iraqi children, Breivik used his nationalism as an excuse to wipe out the young lives of his fellow countrymen. If we, for a moment, elevate ourselves above the horror of terrorism, we may notice the irony in his: the jihadists who claim to fight for a pure Islamic state kill Muslim children in a Muslim country; Breivik, who apparently wanted to fight for a purely Norwegian Norway killed Norwegian children.

I should not have to point this out, but I will anyway: every life is sacrosanct. From the fetus in your wife’s womb to the old woman in a nursing home whose life is endangered by a government-run, cash-starved health care system. It does not matter if jihadists kill Muslims or Christians or whoever. They are savages all the same. This goes for Breivik as well: it does not matter who he assassinated: he is a lowlife terrorist whose future in eternal torment is the only appropriate punishment for his crimes.

Established Swedish media outlets have already begun exploiting the terror attacks in Oslo, and it is almost self-evident that Prime Minister Reinfeldt, one way or another, will associate the Swedish Democrats with this attack. Such is the political climate in Sweden. That is something Swedes will have to live with until they elect another parliamentary majority in 2014. What they will hopefully not have to live with is an escalation of politically driven crimes against Swedish Democrat politicians. In the shadows of the horrible events in Oslo, let us not forget the low-level, but relentless terrorism that leftist activists direct toward their political adversaries.

Let us not forget Swedish Democrat politicians who have been attacked in their homes, in public, when exercising their right to freedom of speech, etc. Let us not forget the bomb that the police found at a Swedish-Democrat rally in Sodertalje during the election campaign last year.

Again: terrorism is terrorism. When someone shows indifference toward other people’s lives in advancing his or her political agenda, he is a terrorist. Major Hasan, a psychologist in the U.S. Army, who killed 13 people on an army base in Texas in 2009, did so in the name of Islam. Anders Breivik killed people in the name of some anti-Islamic agenda. They are both terrorists and deserve to be treated accordingly.

You would hope that this common-sense logic is apparent and can be embraced by everyone. But we have yet to see the left step up to the plate. The Oslo attacks will provide a litmus test for them: are the leftist activists, who conduct a low-level political war against critics of Sweden’s immigration policy, willing to recognize that terrorists are always terrorists? Are they willing to agree that life is sacrosanct and no one should be sacrificed in the name of an ideology (or a religion)?

Since the Swedish Democrats took seats in the Riksdag (Sweden’s parliament) in September last year, the party has been under constant attack from the political mainstream and the self-appointed elite mainstream media. The attacks are driven by a desire to isolate and, eventually, destroy the Swedish Democrats.

The attacks are spearheaded by Prime Minister Reinfeldt, who – as this blog has reported – does not think sympathizers and active members of the Swedish Democrats deserve the same protection from the state as other Swedes do. This explicit sanctioning of politically driven harassment and violence is of course unbecoming of a country that considers itself part of the free world. It calls into question whether Sweden can actually be considered a functioning parliamentary democracy; so far, the Swedish Democrats have prevailed and managed to exercise influence over the legislative process in the Riksdag.

But what happens if the political harassment and violence actually succeeds? What happens if the prime minister has it his way and the Swedish Democrats implode under the pressure?

It is not hard to see what Reinfeldt himself thinks will happen. He would enjoy a return to the political status quo that preceded last year’s election. Issues pertaining to the country’s reckless immigration policies would once again be swept under the carpet. The mainstream media outlets could once again resort to cover-ups of Sweden’s rampant crime rates, the genocide-scale sexual violence against ethnically Swedish women and the enormous costs that the welfare-driven immigration imposes on taxpayers.

In the circles of Sweden’s political elite things would be back to normal. They would once again be able to go to upscale dinner parties in Stockholm’s posh inner city districts and pretend that the world outside the limousine windows does not exist. Truth-sayers need not apply.

The real consequences of a demise of the Swedish Democrats would be fundamentally different. The hundreds of thousands who actively or tacitly support the SD would not change their minds about immigration. Those supporters now represent 6-8 percent of all voters, possibly with another 2-3 percent who could vote for SD but so far have not “come out”. These people would still want to see a change in immigration policy, and their determination to achieve such a change would only be emboldened if they perceived that the political and media elite had crushed SD.

Where would they turn? There are at least two political movements that would stand in line to scoop up disgruntled SD supporters: the National Democrats and the Swedish Resistance Movement.

The National Democrats have won seats in some local parliaments but have never become a force to be reckoned with on the national scene. Ostensibly, this is due to the success of SD, as the two parties share some important elements in their criticism of Sweden’s immigration policies. But there are also important differences between ND and SD that help explain why the latter, not the former, now has seats in the Riksdag. Unlike SD, ND has never made any categorical statements against the use of force to achieve political goals.

The very fact that ND has left the door open to violent campaigns makes the party dangerous. There has been some criticism among the ranks of ND that SD has sold itself to the parliamentary process. Should SD fail in its intentions to close the flood gates in Sweden’s immigration policy, the ND would be quick to seize the momentum that SD has created. They would market themselves as superficially peaceful and ramp up their violent efforts at forcing their policies upon the Swedish people.

A major difference between SD and ND is that ND is a nationalist party, as opposed to the patriotic SD. Patriotism is love for your country without resentment or hostility toward other countries and cultures; nationalism is love for your country based on such resentment and hostility. This difference is crucial and helps explain what the National Democrats would be capable of, should they gain political momentum.

The Swedish Resistance Movement shares ND’s basic principles of nationalism, but builds its policies explicitly on a Nazi platform. They distance themselves from parliamentarianism and embrace the totalitarian ideology of the Third Reich. Their attitude to political violence tends to be one of outcome, not of principle.

SD is a peaceful, democratic movement. Should they be marginalized and made irrelevant by ugly strong-arming tactics, and be forced out as a result of relentless harassment and violence, there is no doubt that ND and the Swedish Resistance Movement would be the real winners. Should Sweden be brought to that point, a new level of political violence could erupt. That eruption could be strong enough to hurl the country into a stage that proxies a civil war.

No, I am not exaggerating. Already today, Sweden is plagued by a high level of politically driven violence, more so than any other European country. A lot of the violence goes undetected – or unreported – by the mainstream media but is picked up by alternative news outlets. An escalation of this violence, driven by a surge in support for violent anti-immigration movements, would make its way into mainstream media as well. The political elite would be faced with a terrible reality: their country is about to fall apart.

I pray to God that Sweden will never be hurled into the dungeons of such a political, social and economic disaster. I fear, though, that we can no longer rule out this scenario as a possible future for Sweden four, maybe five years ahead.

If there is any reason and intellectual decency left in the circles of Sweden’s political elite, they will see the writing on the wall and start working with SD as a serious political player. If on the other hand they turn a blind eye to the political and social realities in their country, they will be responsible for the ultimate destruction of what was once a thriving, peaceful and prosperous democracy.
