The Daily Stirrer and our blogs have regularly reported the descent of Sweden’s cities, one among the safest in the world, into lawless frontier towns where large areas are controlled by gangsters, because of ruling elite, blinkered by politically correct thinking and an addiction to virtue signalling have ignored clear evidence that their ridiculously lax immigration policy was importing third world problems into their liberal, tolerant society.
Now Sweden is sliding towards civil disorder as the authorities refuse to change tack and try to pretend the problems do not exist and vast numbers of uneducated, ignorant, religiously faniatical and totally unemployable migrants put impossible burdens on social, law enforcement and welfare agencies.
“Trains and hospitals don’t work, but immigration continues,” complain Roger Mathson, a retired vegetable oil factory worker in Sweden, when questioned by Bloomberg on the same day as a violent, coordinated rampage by masked gangs of youths across five Swedish cities caused $€£millionsworth of damage to cars and property
We reported previously that with a national election imminent, Swedish politicians were quick to react with anti-immigrant party ‘Sweden Democrats’ seeing a surge in the polls ahead of the September 9th election.
“I’m not a racist, but I’m a nationalist,” Mathson said. “I don’t like seeing the town square full of Niqab-clad ladies and people fighting with each other.”
He had a valid point, much of the violence on the streets of Swedish cities is a result of clturf wars between gangs from rival immigrant communities.
Because of widespread dissatisfaction with the Government response to problems caused by the mostly Muslim immigrants Sweden could be set to have its own political earthquake in September, similar to the one in Italy which rocked the EU establishment to its foundations. A big swing to the right in the general election could end a century of Social Democratic dominance and bring to power a little known (on the world stage), but the now hugely popular nationalist party often dubbed far-right and right-wing populist, called Sweden Democrats?
Sweden, a traditionally a largely homogeneous nation of 10 million, took in an astounding 600,000 legal refugees over the past five years, while thanks to the open doors immigration policy nobody knows how many are in the country illegally. After Swedes across various cities looked out their windows Tuesday to see cars exploding, smoke filling the skies, and possibly armed masked men hurling explosives around busy parking lots, it appears they’ve had enough.
Over the past years of the Sweden Democrats rise as a major force in Swedish politics, the country’s media have labelled the Sweden Democrats as “racists” and “Nazis” due to their focus on anti-immigration and strong Euroscepticism. This is completely wrong but typical of globalist dominated mainstream media in western Europe and North America. Wanting to control immigration, limit numbers of new arrivals, check on willingness to at least tolerate the values and traditions of the host nation and obey its laws is not racist.
A poll at the start of this week, following a massive smear campaign by government and media, and some belated and probably hypocritical tough talking on immigration from other political parties, suggested the Sweden Democrats had fallen back to third place after topping three previous polls as the September election nears; however, Tuesday’s national crisis and what could legitimately be dubbed a serious domestic terror threat is likely to boost their popularity.
Bloomberg’s profile of their leader, Jimmie Akesson (above right), echoes the tone of establishment Swedish media in the way they commonly cast the movement, beginning as follows:
Viking rock music and whole pigs roasting on spits drew thousands of Swedes to a festival hosted by nationalists poised to deliver their country’s biggest political upheaval in a century.
The Sweden Democrats have been led since 2005 by a clean-cut and bespectacled man, Jimmie Akesson. He’s gentrified a party that traces its roots back to the country’s neo-Nazi, white supremacist fringe. Some polls now show the group may become the biggest in Sweden’s parliament after general elections on Sept. 9. Such an outcome would end 100 years of Social Democratic dominance.
The group’s popularity began surging after the 2015 immigration crisis began, which first hit Europe’s southern Mediterranean shores and quickly moved northward as shocking wave after wave of migrants came.
Akesson emphasizes something akin to a “Sweden-first” platform which European media often compares to Trump’s “America First”; and the party has been accused of preaching forced assimilation into Swedish culture to be become a citizen. Little mention is made of the fact that some of the SDs political rivals have been urging Swedes to accept Sharia Law in order to satisfy the demands of radical Muslim preachers.
Bloomberg’s report sampled opinions at a large SD rally held in Akkeson’s hometown of Solvesborg, and many of the statements reflect increasingly common sentiment after this week’s coordinated multi-city attack:
At his party’s festival, Akesson revved up the crowd by slamming the establishment’s failures, calling the last two governments the worst in Swedish history. T-shirts calling for a Swexit, or an exit from the EU, were exchanged as bands played nationalist tunes.
Ted Lorentsson, a retiree from the island of Tjorn, said he’s an enthusiastic backer of the Sweden Democrats. “I think they want to improve elderly care, health care, child care,” he said. “Bring back the old Sweden.” But he also acknowledges his view has led to disagreement within his family as his daughter recoils at what she feels is the “Hitler”-like rhetoric.
No doubt, the media and Eurocrats in Brussels will take simple, innocent statements from elderly retirees like “bring back the old Sweden” as nothing short of declaration of a race war just as they did in an effort to influence Italy’s election result, but such views will only solidify after this week.
Another Sweden Democrat supporter, a 60-year old woman who works at a distillery, told Bloomberg, “I think you need to start seeing the whole picture in Sweden and save the original Swedish population,” she said. “I’m not racist, because I’m a realist.”
Sweden’s two biggest parties, the Social Democrats and Moderates, are now under serious pressure as Swedes increasingly worry about issues like immigration, law and order, and health care – seen as under threat by a mass influx of immigrants that the system can’t handle.
Bloomberg explains further:
But even young voters are turning their backs on the establishment. One potential SD supporter is law student Oscar Persson. Though he hasn’t yet decided how he’ll vote, he says it’s time for the mainstream parties to stop treating the Sweden Democrats like a pariah. “This game they are playing now, where the other parties don’t want to talk to them but still want their support, is something I don’t really understand,” he said.
Akesson has managed to entice voters from both sides of the political spectrum with a message of more welfare, lower taxes and savings based on immigration cuts.
With many Swedes now saying immigration has “gone too far” and as this week’s events have once again thrust the issue before both a national and global audience, the next round of polling will mostly like put Sweden’s conservative-right movements on top.
