Sweden: The Country that Sacrifices its Children, and Celebrates

The Fjordman Report

The noted blogger Fjordman is filing this report via Gates of Vienna.
For a complete Fjordman blogography, see The Fjordman Files. There is also a multi-index listing here.



Sweden is a country that has virtually no public debate about mass immigration, which continues at full speed. The Swedish political and media elites congratulate themselves for their Multicultural goodness. If sacrificing your own children is the definition of good, then exactly what constitutes evil?

From The Local, January 25, 2007:

Staff at Gustav Adolf School in the southern town of Landskrona have now retracted a controversial ban on the use of languages other than Swedish on school premises.

Just days after its introduction the principal has downgraded the ban to a “main rule”. Consequently pupils will now be allowed to speak their native languages during breaks.

But, in a new measure, pupils will have to pass two security guards when entering the school.

On Saturday it was revealed that the management of the school had decided that only Swedish could be spoken on school premises. Almost half of the pupils at the school come from an immigrant background.

The ban was introduced following a number of incidents in which staff and pupils felt they had been insulted in languages they did not understand.
From The Local, January 19, 2007:

A fierce debate has erupted following the closure of a school in the southern town of Landskrona yesterday. Gustav Adolf School reopened on Friday amid calls for tighter discipline, more surveillance cameras and a new principal.

A series of disturbances have meant that six pupils will now be moved to other schools, while 22 others have been suspended for a week.

In December nine 15-year-old girls at the school went on strike after accusing male classmates of bullying. They say the boys used foul language, spat on them from a balcony and put sticky tape in their hair.

There have also been reports of boys urinating in girls’ shoes, as well as threats and beatings on school premises.

When leftover fireworks from the recent new year’s celebrations exploded inside the school on Thursday, health and safety representative Leif Paulsson ordered the school’s immediate closure.

Even more news from Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö, the evolving tragedy of failed immigration policies and runaway crime rates. Set to become the first major Scandinavian city with a Muslim majority a few years from now, it is the horror story in the ongoing collapse of Swedish society. about a high school teacher in Malmö, Sweden, who discovered that about a dozen Arab students were laughing and shouting “Allahu Akbar!” while watching a DVD of infidel hostages being beheaded in Iraq. The headmaster didn’t think the incident was such a big deal.

At least 139 schools in Sweden suffered arson attacks during 2002 alone, a number which by 2007 has grown to at least 230. Such as an incident in Malmö, where three schools were put on fire during one night. “Teenage boys” are suspected to behind the arson. Björn Vinberg from the fire department in Kroksbäck in the Malmö area says it’s humiliating and 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. His colleagues have been to the same place no less than twenty times, all totally unnecessary.

In 2005 it was decided that the district of Hyllie in Malmö would begin education in Arabic only for groups of immigrant preschool children. This seems logical, given that Muslims already make up close to one third of its population, and may well be the majority within a few years as native Swedes are leaving the city in record numbers. The idea is that once the children learn the language of their parents, it will become easier for them to learn Swedish as well. So the Swedish state paying for educating Swedish citizens on Swedish ground in Arabic is somehow supposed to increase integration.

From The Local, January 2, 2007:

Two local Liberal Party politicians in Malmö have proposed a ban on the use of languages other than Swedish in school classrooms. Local politician Eva Bertz and member of parliament Allan Widman see the measure as a way to tackle the problem of segregation in society.

“This is a local proposal. In Malmö we have a very unique situation: we are close to the point where a majority of pupils have a foreign background, which is to say that either they or their parents come from a country outside Sweden,” Allan Widman told The Local.

As chairman of the local branch of the Liberals, Widman has the backing of his party in Sweden’s third largest city. But he has not discussed the matter with Liberal Party leader and education minister Lars Leijonborg, or school minister Jan Björklund.

“We’re not commenting on that,” school minister Jan Björklund’s press secretary told The Local when asked about the proposal.

Widman explains that some schools in Malmö have as few as 5 percent ethnic Swedes in their classrooms.
From The Local, January 12, 2007:

Rival gangs of 10-year-olds in the eastern town of Söderhamn have threatened to wipe each other out. One of the gangs is made up of indigenous Swedes and the other of immigrants, and police in the town are taking the problem very seriously.

The conflict has escalated on the internet, and police fear that there may be fatalities if the fighting is not stopped.
From an article by Bruce Bawer in The New York Sun, December 8, 2006:

Recently, the city of Stockholm carried out a survey of ninth-grade boys in the predominantly Muslim suburb of Rinkeby. The survey showed that in the last year, 17% of the boys had forced someone to have sex, 31% had hurt someone so badly that the victim required medical care, and 24% had committed burglary or broken into a car. Sensational statistics — but in all of Sweden, they appear to have been published only in a daily newssheet that is distributed free on the subways.
A report from organization Save the Children tells of how being a young Swedish girl today means feeling unsafe. The girls are scared of being raped, a possibility that appears very real to them. Many girls plan how to go home at night, how to pretend to be talking on the mobile phone, how to keep their keys in their hand to defend themselves or how to simply run all the way home. Both the fear and the choice of strategies indicate that many girls feel genuinely unsafe outdoors during certain hours of the day. A striking number of girls have experienced harassment from boys or men. Most frequently, the harassment comes from boys of the same age as the girls. Being called “whore” has become so common in some schools that several of the girls say the teachers no longer react to this.

Actress Ylva Törnlund has visited several schools in Tensta, and was alarmed by the harsh atmosphere she discovered there. “The attitudes we meet in the schools are frightening. One boy talked about how girls should be f**ked to pieces until they bleed,” Törnlund said. She decided to visit the area after a rape that took place in a public bath nearby in broad daylight. A 17-year-old girl was raped, and none of the other guests did anything to stop this. The girl was first approached by a 16-year-old boy. He and his friends followed her as she walked away into a grotto, and inside the grotto he got her blocked in the corner, ripped off her bikini and raped her, while his friend held her firm.

The number of rape charges in Sweden has quadrupled in just over twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six — 6 — times as common today as they were a generation ago. Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too. Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas.

“It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an Arab girl,” says Hamid. “The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and she had probably f****d before, anyway. But the Arab girl will get problems with her family. For her, being raped is a source of shame. It is important that she retains her virginity until she marries.” “It is far too easy to get a Swedish whore… girl, I mean,” says Hamid, and laughs over his own choice of words. “I don’t have too much respect for Swedish girls. I guess you can say they get f****d to pieces.”

Well, if the authorities won't protect them, if they won't even try, if they won't even admit there's a problem, people are going to do it themselves.

I predict a UN nation-building mission to the failed nation of Sweden sometime in the next few decades ... IF the Islamic Republic of France doesn't use its position on the Security Council to veto it!

scrilla said...

cmon guys, europe is finished.

even if you weren't being overrun by Islam, you would still be commies.

Archonix said...

My predictions are rather different, but I think I've aired them here before so I won't be too wordy about it. Suffice to say, it's not fair to write off the swedes just yet, or any other european nation. We're collectively violent people, on the whole, though we've repressed it for a long time, and continue to do so because we haven't yet reached the point where our weariness of war is overcome by the necessity to fight again. Repressed violence finds its way out eventually. The next world war will probably start somewhere in northern europe and Islam will lose it, eventually, but only because they've never yet met with the sort of industrialised violence we're capable of meteing out when roused, for good or ill.

Nevsky said...

I think we might be seeing a bit of that "repressed violence" with the gangs described in the post, the ethnic Swedes that are battling the immigrant gangs. This kind of stuff has been typical here in the "melting pot" during our history with each successive wave of immigrants. I have not heard stories about general predatory ethnic raping during those waves of immigration, though; I think that might be the legacy of Mohammed (peace be upon him).

I'm not writing Sweden or the rest of Europe off; I'm just suggesting that there might be a (civil?) war phase between now and when Europe re-emerges.

By the way: how are the beaches at Normandy these days?

Stephen Renico said...

archonix,

In addition to the possibility of a Eurabia, what worries me is what Europe would be like after the repressed violence finds its way out again.

Europeans could well use a little injection of nationalism, but I smell the whiff of fascism in the end of all of this.

I have just pulled these statistics off BRA they are for rapes in Sweden over the last seven years. I will let you draw your own conclusions. If any of you are interested then you can go and get them yourselves here is the link http://statistik.bra.se/solwebb/action/start?menykatalogid=1 click on the button Ǻrs och periodvis and it brings you to the page where can get them out. When you have juggled around with them you can download them as an excel file.

Dear Nevsky,
the beaches in Normandy are the same as they always were, ideal for smuggling in weapons for the resistance.

Archonix said...

That's the horrible irony of the European Union at work. They say it's designed to prevent such things, but the current set of politicians, neutered by their involvement in the "project", are simply creating a situation where such ideaology can rise up unhindered. It's already rearing its head in Islam. It's looking like the only way to fight the monster is to become an even bigger monster in return. I won't say that a return of fascism is inevitable, because nothing is inevitable, but it seems very likely. Which, incidentally, is one of the reason I always reject calls from people telling me I should abandon this place. If all the free thinkers leave, who fights the fascists?

Stephen Renico said...

archonix,

I don't know. But fascists have been particularly effective in eliminating free thinkers in the past.

Eurabia or not, I fear a bleak future in Europe either way.

Archonix: "...our weariness of war is overcome by the necessity to fight again."
Since you post from UK, you may know "subjects" who can recall the "necessity to fight",(though it would appear self defense is illegal these days). This is not so in Sweden. They appear to be ready to lead into the dark night by their socialist "leaders". As for those of us on this side of the pond:
ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ!!

Michelle Malkin wrote a book about the internment of Japanese during WWII. As I recall, her arguments in favor of internment were viewed with some vilification. Without engaging in the debate over whether or not Malkin "nailed it" with her defence of interment, it should be pointed out that putting just over 100-thousand people of Japanese decent into concentration camps following Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor still has the capacity to enrage many.

Internment, evacuation, relocation camps, all these things shimmer on the horizon like a mirage. N'est ce pas?

In the U.S. this is known as "bilingual education." It has been proven to be a failure and over the objections of the education lobbies was voted out in California and Arizona voters by referendum (i.e. the people were smarter than the politicians).

@OregonGuy:

Although the original meaning and definition of the term "concentration camp" might be apt (I believe it was used by the Brits in the Boer War), the current definition (in use since WWII) is not appropriate to describe the camps in which Japanese-Americans were interred. Although not as well known, many German- and Italian-Americans were also placed in internment camps during the war. And even less known is the fact that a number of those internees (especially of German descent) were justifiably interned because they were true-blue Nazis.

Archonix said...

Leonidas (gotta love having a wife who knows greek), don't be too sure about that. Sweden has a chequered history and certainly a lot of people who think the way you suggest, but I know a few over there who have some trace of the old scandanavian independence left in them. Unfortunately they are old, and dying off. Just last week my wife's grandmother died. She was old enough to remember something approaching real freedom, before the swedish government took it all away. Even my father in law remembers the time when there wasn't so much government regulation, but he doesn't really see how he can fight it. He would if he could. That's why I'm not redy to write off these places just yet. Sooner or later the word will get out that the necessity to stand up for our nations has arrived. You might be surprised at how many people respond.

Then again, perhaps it's all in vain. But unless that failing moment comes to pass there's no point in giving up. :)

Within the past couple of weeks, I read an article in Aftenposten, I think, titled "More people want to become Swedes, and who could blame them!" (paraphrasing, but it did state "who could blame them!").
The article cited immigrants from a number of countries, including the U.S. but left out--at least in the English-language version I read--any mention of north African or "asian" immigrants.
If I can find it I'll post a link.

talnik said...

I can't find it in Aftenposten, it must have been in a Swedish paper

I was talking with some bilingual teachers once. They spent the whole year doing what they were supposed to according to the education industry, teaching in Spanish for the state-mandated skills test. Test results were a disaster, of course. Then, after the school year ended, all the bilingual teachers in the school got together for a meeting to review progress in getting the kids to learn English. They unanimously agreed that the way they had to do it was stupid, and immersion was the best policy. Talk about barking up the wrong tree! LOL

"(i.e. the people were smarter than the politicians)".

Imagine that! Sometimes I think politicians get a new lobotomy each time they're sworn in.

mellivora said...

Reading posts like that, I feel certain Schadenfreude on being a Finn.

Since I speak also Swedish, I warmly welcome each and every native Swede who wants to emigrate here. We have lower taxation than Sweden and only let a maximum of 1000 refugees and immigrants outside EU in - unless you come with work visa.

The Raccoon said...

I reckon there are two options:

a) Europe never wakes up or wakes up too late. It becomes a bunch of Islamic dictatorships/theocracies, with enslaved native populations. Very soon these states go to war against each other while continuing their war against everybody else; Europe is dead, China assimilates the remains, kills off or enslaves the Muslims.

b) Europe wakes up. In some states there are popular uprisings, in other the rise of fascist governments. Either way, the Muslims are killed, deported, put in concentration camps (and then killed/deported). Europe goes through a very difficult period, changing its face and nature for a long time to come.

Can anyone see another way out?

Michael said...

This is truly disturbing. Makes me glad I got out of SE Michigan (heavily Arab area) when I did, too.

spackle said...

I cant stand violence but is clear that the only thing these people understand and respect is violence. It is time to take the gloves off and for Swedes (among others) to start dishing out what it has been on the recieving end of. Maybe then the illiberal left will wake up to the monster they themselves have created.

Patrick_A_NonnyMouse said...

Well, it really does come down to local vigilante groups, doesn't it?

"The police can't be everywhere"; and in our western nations it's assumed that everybody is more-or-less civilized most of the time, so we don't have high numbers of police relative to the population (= we don't have enough police to handle widespread unrest, or to cope with guerilla tactics where "youths" strike one place, then when emergency responders arrive they melt away & go strike somewhere else. There certainly aren't enough police to assign them to each street corner thereby preventing opportunistic thugs from harassing, mugging, or raping at a whim.)

Maybe something like Curtis Sliwa's "Guardian Angels" from New York City needs to get started; although I fear the government would probably declare criminal any attempt by mere citizens to ensure their own self-protection.

However - the purpose of government is to protect its citizenry. When the government fails in that (& fails even to attempt it), when the government accommodates and appeases a clear threat to the welfare of its citizens, the "social contract" is broken. The consent of the governed is revoked, and (in the immortal words of John Wayne "A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do"

There's another reason the crime rate is lower in Finland, besides it's low tolerance for immigration. The majority of Finnish men carry knives. Many of them are visible, attached to their belts.

Ah, Europe. You used to pride yourselves on your low crime rate, compared to the U.S. You're eating your words now. The U.S. understood something you didn't: higher populations mean higher crime rates. You opened your doors wide to immigrants but didn't expect them to conform to your laws. You didn't build more prisons for the population influx, and then you had to decrease prison sentences. Your citizens aren't allowed to defend themselves, and as one youthful thief declared above, "It's so easy to rob the Swedes. We rob every single day, as often as we want....They're so wimpy."
