Left-Wing Journalist on Sweden’s Migrant Suburbs: “Everyone Knew it Would End in Disaster”

A well known left-wing journalist in Sweden who has been one of the biggest advocates of uncontrolled mas immigration appears to have performed a U turn on the issue, or is at least endeacouring to achieve the impossible feat of riding two horses with one arse. Aftonbladet’s Lena Mellin is now admitting that when it came to Sweden’s crime-ridden no-go areas, “everyone knew it [the open doors immigrstion policy] would end in disaster.”

Mellin now acknowledges that the attempt by Sweden’s far left Social Democrat government to replace the ethnic Swede majority with third world migrants has failed. The forlon hope that huge numbers of migrants from Africa and the Middle East has failed. These people come from tribal and theocratic societies and have been at each other’ throts for thousands of years in their homelands, what kind of deluded, sociopathic fat left idiot do you have to be to think that dumping them in LiberalSweden where, by the standards of their homelands, they can live like kings on the free money the generous social welfare system grants them.

With no need to think about earning a living the migrants have occupied themselves with drug dealing, pimping, people trafficking and protection racketeering among other criminal activities.

“All parties, with the possible exception of the Left Party and the Sweden Democrats [SD], who hardly affected the reality on this point, should be ashamed,” writes 64-year-old Mellin. She accuses politicians of having “largely neglected the development in some of our suburbs” despite the fact that “everyone knew it would end in disaster.”

Numerous commentators called out Mellin’s hypocrisy in admitting she knew integration was failing yet still refusing to renounce her support for the government’s mass immigration program, which many leftists have admitted, aimes to make Sweden a migrant majority nation. It is likely that she would reply by complaining that the government did not throw enough money at the migrants in order to help them integrate.

“Incredible! Lena Mellin, of all journalists, one of the foremost advocates for mass immigration and multiculturalism, one of the worst SD-haters, claims that ‘one has known for years’ that it would go to hell,” tweeted Ted Ekeroth.

“For more than a decade Sweden’s ruling class — including political leaders and the media — has denied that there are any problems in the country’s banlieues caused by the mass importation of Third World immigrants. Except for problems caused by those WAYCIST Swedes, of course,” writes the Gates of Vienna blog.

“Now it seems that the truth about the ‘cultural enrichment’ (i.e. rape, sexual assault, people shitting in the stret, organised crime, gunfights,) has become so blatant that it can no longer be denied. The response of the Swedish media establishment? “We knew all along that things would end badly; we just forgot to tell you.” And they blame the politicians.”

Many on the right of the political spectrum are saying Sweden ought to follow the example srt by Norway and, in defiance of politiclly correct edicts from the EU, should begin gathering statistics on criminals’ ethnicity. Eurosceptic, anti – immigration party, The Sweden Democrats and the Conservatives have urged the government to dump its policy of not revealing the ethnic or religious background of criminals and crime suspects. However, Justice Minister Morgan Johansson of the ruling Socialist Democrat Party dismissed the demand as “poisonous rhetoric,” Swedish national broadcaster SVT reported.

Meanwhile several rapes of European women by “men of African or midddle eastern appearance are reported every day in thye once safe and peaceful nation.

Unlike Sweden, Norway never abandoned the practice of mapping out criminals’ ethnicity, reports indicate that migrants and their locally-born children are far more likely to perpetrate crimes than the rest of the population, and are also far more likely to be unemployed. In Sweden, no such study has been carried out since 2005, before the EU backed ‘open doors’ immigration policy and other virtue signalling policies such as not punishing immigrants for serious crimes, “because they don’t understand Swedish culture,” began to seriously disrupt the social nsystem in Swedish towns. Immigration into Scandinavia’s largest country country also accelerated to tens of thousands per year.

“People with backgrounds from Africa, parts of Asia and Latin America are most drastically overrepresented,” Synøve Andersen, researcher at Statistics Norway (SSB) told SVT, commenting on the latest crime report. Migrants show passports from Iraqi and Syrian fellow travellers they have to present to buy ferry tickets for their passage to Sweden

According to SSB, the proportion of the Norwegian population of European ethnicity suspected of crimes is 4.5 percent in a demographic representing the bulk of the population (i.e. those without immigrant background), 6.7 percent among immigrants and a staggering 11.3 percent among the children of immigrants, which astounded Norwegian researchers.

In terms of violent and domestic abuse, the differences between immigrants and others are still bigger: 11.2 permille for immigrants and 22.9 permille for children of immigrants versus 6.3 permille for the rest of the population, according to the Norwegian study. “This is a result that shows something we clearly need to learn more about,” Synøve Andersen told SVT.

The report also showed marked differences between various types of immigrants. The Authorities in Malmo responded by inviting local gang leaders for pizza, while the Swedish government recently announced it would commit $175,000 to funding Drag Queen Story Time events where men dressed as women read and perform to children.

Despite the remarkable findings from Norway and other neighboring countries, Denmark and Finland, Swedish Justice Minister Morgan Johansson dismissed the possibility of conducting a similar study in Sweden, amid its ever-changing ethnic landscape.

“It does not matter to me if you are black or white, once you commit a crime you should be punished, that’s my starting point,” Johansson told SVT. Johansson claimed previous surveys indicated that migrants’ overrepresentation disappeared once socio-economic factors and age are not taken into consideration. Statements from whistleblowers in Sweden’s Police Forces suggest morale amonmg officers is at an all time low because courts refuse to punish African and middle eastern criminals to “avoid creating inter – racial tensions”.

So the Justice Minister is talking bollocks, THE COLOUR OF A CRIME SUSPECTS SKIN DOES MATTER.

Barcelona mayhem: Clashes with police as ‘half a million’ pro-independence supporters rally amid general strike

Amid all the huffing and puffing, supreme court meddling in politics, undemocratic behaviour of democratically elected representatives and that twunt Corbyn trying and almost succeeding in the feat of riding two horses with one arse, we have forgotten that other nations in Europe have having their own struggles over independence versus federalism, national sovereignty and mass immigration.

A huge crowd with Catalan flags has paralyzed central Barcelona as people from all across the region protested the harsh prison sentences for pro-independence leaders by the Spanish court and called for parting ways with Madrid, RT.com writes.

The police estimated that at least 525,000 turned up in the center of Barcelona, local media cited law enforcement. “Independence,”“The streets will be ours” and “Freedom to political prisoners” were among the chants heard at the massive gathering.

The rally continued more or less peacefully for a few hours, but was eventually marred by more serious violence as some of the protesters started building barricades and setting garbage containers on fire. They tossed stones and other foreign objects at the riot police, who were seen firing back – presumably using rubber bullets or other projectiles – and charging at the rioters with batons.

Some of those, involved in clashes with police, were said to be right-wing thugs, who actually oppose the Catalan independence. The footage from the scene showed people carrying Spanish national flags and giving Nazi salutes.

As night fell, some of the sites of the clashes resembled a war zone, with burning barricades, rubble everywhere and clouds of thick white smoke in the air.

Violent episodes may attract media attention, but they’re just a small part of the picture, Toni Casserras from the Catalan ‘Free People’ party told RT. The majority of the pro-independence activists believe in peaceful civil disobedience and they will keep going out into the streets.

“The protests [in Catalonia]are being sustained for several years and – despite the violence, which is applied to the protesters; despite imprisoning our leaders – people don’t give up. Protests are efficient, especially, massive protests.”

Breaking News From Planet Snowflake – Kitchen Knives To Be Banned

As we’ve said before, this blog started  out as a social and political satire publication. Then about 2010 maybe, the virtue signalling of the political left and progressive liberals became so insane it was beyond sanity. This story illustrates how far beyond sanity we have travelled.

‘Beyond parody’: Call for UK to ban pointed kitchen knives ridiculed online

Church of England bishops (who else could be so far out of touch with reality?) are leading a campaign calling on the government to take a toughen up its position on on knife crime, in the wake of a massive upsurge in knife attacks and violent crime since the police were ordered to prioritise the investigation of ‘hate crime’ over pursuing real criminals. One of their suggestions is banning pointed kitchen knives. The suggestion has been met on social media with some confusion, and a lot of jokes.

Church leaders, with support from police, psychiatrists and politicians, penned an open letter to the government, arguing that domestic knives should be redesigned with rounded tips to reduce the number of life-threatening stabbing injuries being inflicted bt thugs with hunting knives, combat knives and machetes. They reportedly argue that pointed blades aren’t even needed in this day and age, given that we have forks to eat with. The useless old farts have obviouslt never skinned a rabbit or gutted a fish.

The absurdity of banning a common kitchen implement was pointed out by bemused netizens, particularly as the proposal comes after police recently announced that they will no longer post images of seized knives “to help reduce the fear of knives,” and as the Home Office uses takeaway packaging to basically tell people that stabbing is bad.

WTF? DON’T THEY UNDERSTAND THUGS THINK BEING BAD IS KOOL, SO TELLING THEN STABBING IS BAD WILL ONLY ENCOURAGE THEM?

Despite such highly effective crime-fighting tactics, the government seems to be having little actual effect on violent knife crime rates if official statistics cab ve believed, and efforts to ‘reach out’ to young criminas appears to be failing to reduce crime or assure the public that the problem is being dealt with.

Many Twitter users were baffled by the suggestion of a pointed kitchen knife ban, wondering if it’s some sort of joke, while others highlighted the fundamental futility of the idea by noting how easy it is to find an alternative sharply-pointed weapon, or to make one.

Some weighed in with creative alternatives to food preparation, should you find yourself bereft of a pointed kitchen knife.

And commenters across the pond were less than impressed with the ‘banning pointy knives’ proposal, with one saying: “When you Europeans get high and mighty about America’s guns and tell us we need to be more like you… this is what comes to mind.”

French Journalists Reject Government Narrative, Show Support For Yellow Vests Yellow Vests

Throughout the developed world we have witnessed, over the past few years, increased political pressure being applied to news organisations to promote the government line on issues such as multiculturalism and diversity, climate change, vaccines, military interventions and mass surveillance. Some governments have even go so far as to effectively abolish the right of free speech by criminalising so – called ‘hate speech’, a crime where, in common with medieval witch hunts, to be accused is regarded as suffficient proof of guilt. While Silicon Valley new media giants have made no secret of their political biases, even appearing to be vying for the role of official censors of internet content, the corruption of mainstream news journalism has been more insidious.

Though governments in the democratic world have been following a trend towards greater authoritarianism, implementing mass surveillance policies, and clamping down on freedom of expression, resistance is growing, and nowhere more so than France, a nation with a long tradition of anarchic dissent. For six months the ad – hoc protest movement known as Gilets Jaunes (Yellow vests) have protested against the globalist government of ‘boy – president’ Emmanuel Macron, a former investment banker pushed into power by the establishment in a bid to fend of a victory by the nationalist Marine Le Pen and her Rassemblement National (formerly Front National.) The Macron government is seen as ruling in the interests of the rich and of global corporations. The Yellow Vests protests were triggered by punitive fuel taxes, a part of Marcron’s over – ambitious plan to turn France into a net – zero carbon emissions economy, and by rising living costs and high unemployment. Now what began as an expression of dissatisfaction among people on moderate incomes has evolved into something much bigger, something that could change France and further weaken the European Union

Marcon’s response to the protests has been to delpoy the para – military Gendarmerie against the protestors and authorise brutal riot control tactics against unarmed citizens.

Now, after supporting the government line so far, the news media have turned on Marcon, whose government is already on the brink of collapse as civil unrest threatens to turn into civil war. Over 300 media organisations, journalists, photographers, and others working to deliver news to French citizens have put their names to a letter denouncing the excessive brutality of the methods used in trying to suppress the protests. Rubber bullets, tear gas, water cannon, baton charges and punishment beatings have all been used against people involved in Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) protests and members of the press corps in the cities and towns of France.

The letter claims that press freedom in France has been suffering for years under both conservative and socialist governments. Macron’s predecessor in office, the socialist Francois Hollande even went so far as to ‘ban’ conspiracy theories, though how that was intended to work we’re unable to say. The general dissatisfaction with all levels of French government entered a new phase following the start of the Yellow Vest protests in November of last year, Franceinfo reports.

“All these forms of violence have physical (injury), psychic (trauma) or financial (broken or confiscated equipment) consequences. We are personally and professionally denigrated and criminalized,” the journal wrote, highlighting the work of journalist David Dufresne who has catalogued at least 698 cases of people being attacked or injured by police at the protests, including 85 journalists.

The signatories to the letter also raised the issue of police demanding press cards, something not always available to independent journalists, saying, “As a reminder, journalism is not a regulated profession. It is not the press card that justifies our profession. That is why we demand that the government take the necessary measures so that law enforcement agencies stop harassing us and let us work freely.”

The issue of police violence towards members of the Yellow Vests has sparked concern from other sectors of society, including medical professionals, who, through their profesional body, said they had never seen so many serious injuries, some of which have included lost hands and eyes, during a protest movement.

Earlier this week, a 19-year-old woman who was so badly injured by police during a protest in Marseille on December 8th filed attempted murder charges against the officers, saying she was hit by a rubber bullet and then brutally beaten by plainclothes officers as she lay on the ground.

According to the 19-year-old, she had only just left work for the day before the assault and has been so badly injured that it took her four months to be able to return to her job in the retail sector.

In another example of excessive police violence, a 72 year old woman who fell to the ground after being hit by a rubber bullet was set on and beaten so badly by police officers as she lay on the ground that she lost an eye. Commenting on the outrage President Macron said he hoped she had learned some wisdom from the incident. It is encouraging that French journalists are no longer prepared to play down such revolting arrougance from the ruling elite.

Macron Moves Against yellow Vests, Bans Protests In Neighborhoods With “Ultra” Radicals

 

France is cracking down on “yellow vest” protesters following a weekend of renewed violence – as the Macron administration announced on Monday that it would ban demonstration in several areas of France – including the Champs Elysees in Paris, if “ultra elements” are present, according to Interior Minister Edouard Philippe.

‘We will ban demonstrations if ultra elements’ are present, said Philippe, according to CNEWS.

The ban will apply to “neighborhoods that have been most affected as soon as we have knowledge of” the “ultras.”

“I am thinking of course the Champs-Elysees in Paris, the place Pey-Berland in Bordeaux, the Capitol Square in Toulouse”, Philippe added, where “we will proceed to the immediate dispersal of all groups.”

Philippe added that he has asked the State Judicial Agent to “systematically seek the financial responsibility of troublemakers.”

Yellow Vests Turn Violent Again, Cars Torched, buildings Vandalised As Macron’s ‘Great Debate’ Ends

After several weeks of largely peaceful protests, with no reports of significant violence during weekend 13, 14 and 15, France’s Yellow Vests are back in full swing on weekend 16, following the end of President Macron’s unsuccessful ‘great debate’ – during which thousands of local meetings were conducted over a two-month period in the hopes of solving national issues through citizen debates.  Unfortunately the tone of the meetings was patronising and condescending to people who attended, with officials taking the line that ordinary people were not well enough informed on matters of economics and international relations to understand President Macron’s programme for transforming France.

Unfortunately after Macron signed the treaty of Aachen with Germany’s Angela Merkel, a committment to further integrate the two nations economically and politically, some people suggested, a tad unkindly perhaps, that Macron was simply rebooting Vichy France, the government of collaborator Marshal Petain during the Nazi occupation from 1939 to 1944.

Up to half-a-million people participated in 10,000 meetings across the country to discuss social issues ranging from taxes – which the French pay the most of any OECD country in the world, to immigration, surrender of national sovereignty to the EU, the state of French democracy and climate change.

“We have been patient but now we want results,” Yellow Vest Laurent Casanova told press agency AFP.

With no meaningful changes yet apparent or on offer after twelve weeks of nationwide cathartic venting which began in November 2018, the Yellow Vests are now back to angry demonstrations as the protests kick off their 16th week with an ‘ultimatum’ rally – marked by lootings, fires, and mayhem that organizers maintain are due to a radical minority.

Some protesters attempted to erect barricades to block streets around Place Charles de Gaulle – prompting the police to respond with water cannon, tear gas and other riot control techniques.

Vehicles were set on fire according to AP as the demonstration turned into yet another riot, and the lootings began. Shop windows were mashed and furniture broken. Around 200 people were arrested according to BFM TV, while about 80 shops near the Champs Elysees had been damaged and/or looted according to AFP, citing Champs Elysees committee president Jean-Noel Reinhardt.

Wooden boards nailed over the windows of iconic stores such as Boss and Lacoste in the most fashionable street in Paris were ripped off and thrown onto burning heaps as looters emerged, arms laden with stolen clothes, some of which were used to fuel the flames.

Cafe tables and chairs also ended up on the fire and the famous Fouquet’s brasserie — favorite locale of the rich and famous, including ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy who controversially used it to celebrate his 2007 election — was also sacked in an orgy of anti-capitalist destruction.

“It’s unfortunate but this is the only way we can make ourselves heard,” a yellow vested protestor who traveled from the southeastern Bourgogne region for the protest, billed as an “ultimatum” to Macron, said as he looked on.

The police, having erected a ring of steel around the Arc de Triomphe, battled for over seven hours to disperse the protesters, using copious amounts of tear gas, stun grenades, and water cannon.

But for most of the day the protesters, who waved French as well as regional flags and chanted “Macron resign”, held the famous avenue which was shrouded in smoke and teargas.

“It’s the apocalypse!,” one demonstrator shouted with glee.

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe vowed to “severely punish” the radicals responsible for rioting and setting fires around one of France’s richest neighbourhoods.

Philippe visited the Champs-Elysees on Saturday to show his support for riot police and firefighters struggling to get the unrest under control after it broke out amid yellow vest protests.

He estimated up to a few thousand troublemakers were responsible for Saturday’s “unacceptable” violence. Speaking to reporters, he praised firefighters who saved people trapped in a building set fire by protesters.

Saturday’s riots were so severe that President Macron had to cut short a vacation at the La Mongie ski resort in the Hautes-Pyrénées following a three-day tour of East Africa which took him to Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya.

Macron skied on Friday, telling La Depeche du Midi “I’m going to spend two-three days here to relax, to find landscapes and friendly faces,” adding “I’m happy to see the Pyrenees like that, radiant, although I know it was more difficult at Christmas” referring to the lack of snow in December.

In response to Saturday’s violence, Macron said over Twitter that “strong decisions” were coming to prevent more violence.

Macron said some individuals — dubbed “black blocs” by French police forces — were taking advantage of the protests by the Yellow Vest grassroots movement to “damage the Republic, to break, to destroy.” Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on Twitter that those who excused or encouraged such violence were complicit in it. –Bloomberg

 

In December, Macron attempted to assuage angry protesters with 10 billion ($11.2 billion) in tax cuts and other benefits for low-wage pensioners, but nobody believed he intended to turn promises into action.

Left Wing Thug Threatens Brexit Supporting Labour MP

Frank Field and John Mann

In the furore over verteran Member of Parliament Frank Field’s resignation from the Parliamentary Labour Party, John Mann, Labour MP for Bassetlaw and Brexit supporter backed up Field’s claim of thuggish behaviour by far left extremists who have hijacked the party since jeremy Corbyn became leader. Mr. Mann told reporters that he had been subject to harassment after voting with the Government on Brexit proposals, and claimed that a Labour Party member in Wirral threatened to punch him.

Mr Mann made the claims while speaking to Sky News and press representatives this morning when he was asked to comment on the recent resignation of Labour MP Frank Field, who resigned the whip in protest of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

In Mr Field’s resignation letter, he said that the Labour Party had failed to act on “numerous complaints about the thuggish conduct of some members”. Sky News presenter Samantha Washington asked Mr Mann: “Have you experienced this kind of thuggery that Mr Field is talking about?”

Mann replied: “Oh yes. A party member in Wirral put out something saying he’s going to punch me in the face. That’s the level of intellect that we’re getting from these types of people. Thugs, bullies, extremists, racists. They need throwing out of the Labour Party, driving out.

“They tried it with Frank [Field] in the early 80s and the Labour leadership took them on, got rid of them, re-installed Frank, and Frank went on then to be the key crusader against child poverty and poverty in this country.”

Mr Field has resigned the party’s whip and will continue to represent his constituency as an independent Labour MP in what he said was a protest against the “thuggish bullying” of some Labour party members against members of the Jewish community. He has come under criticism from some commentators who claim that he “jumped before he was pushed” on allegations he would be deselected after voting with the Government on a Brexit bill.

In his resignation letter, Mr Field claimed that bullying and intimidation were “sadly manifest within my own constituency Labour party (CLP) in Birkenhead”.
