Some readers ask why so many Swedes are idly sitting by when things obviously are going off the rails at a neckbreaking speed. The simple answer is, they live in blissful ignorance of it. Because according to mainstream news, everything is just peachy in the country of Sweden, except more and more people join this satanic league of soulless orcs in the nationalist party. It’s completely inexplicable and puzzling, since the only stories ever presented about SD is what fascist monsters they are — and yet they keep growing like nobody’s business!
Obviously, these “defectors” get unfiltered information online. Then they tell their friends and neighbors, who in turn also stop buying regular papers. And there’s the explanation why the Swedish mainstream media scene is rapidly going down the toilet DESPITE big investments in online adaptation of its material.
But let’s pretend for a second that you are one of the many who still rely on mainstream media for your daily news, unpolluted by alternative and dissenting voices. Your views of the world are dictated by people strictly adhering to the official journalist union code of self-censorship.
Any incidents of bombings, torched cars, shootings and gang rapes are either hushed up, downplayed and relegated to a tiny notice towards the back and/or distorted to fit the established doctrine. The only pictures published in these cases are when the perp is white; if there is no picture, the perp is of MENA-origin.
Now we’ll take a look inside Metro, a conventional ad-based paper available in all major towns in Sweden. This snapshot is from today, Dec 9, 2014.
First, the big headline story is that they’re launching a sob story series about the lives of the Romanian beggars (sometimes referred to as “EU-migrants” or the traditional slur, “Gypsies”) that now pack the street in any podunk Swedish town. Since Romania gained free access to Europe, there has been a tremendous inflow of beggars, and you’ll find at least one beggar outside every decent-size store.
While there are now court cases where the “beggar bosses” and their gangs fight for turf and abuse the actual beggars not unlike pimps, mainstream media vehemently denies that it’s organized. The office where I work has a view over one such beggar spot, and twice a day, 11-ish and 3-ish like clockwork, the boss comes by in a dark Mercedes and collects the loot. But according to the journalists, it’s a fantasy, and the purpose of the article series is of course to make regular Swedes open their hearts and wallets without realizing they’re merely helping the fat guy get a third Rolex.
As for real news, the main stories of the day is that more youths get gonhorrea, the release of the CIA torture report, and that airborne Brazilian police found a swastika in a residential pool.
Having dealt with the vital news portion, it’s time for the bulk of the paper: editorials, columns and opinion pieces. I want to stress that these two screenshots from the Dec 9 electronic edition are unedited in any way, presenting a typical sample of articles found in any given newspaper on any given day.
Top left: “We who are born in Sweden don’t deserve to be better off than the refugees”
A remarkable article that deserves a link to the full text, for those who really want to peek inside the mind of a Swedish journalist. Her basic point is that it’s a disgrace that Swedes get to enjoy the fruit of their ancestors’ hard work, and that the borders should be completely opened to everyone in the whole world who has lower standard of living than the average Swede.
On a side note, this is the same gem that wrote an earlier article protesting the very notion of deporting immigrant rapists. It is the poor MENA-men that are the victims here, she argued, because it’s not their fault. They rape because they are “emotionally scarred”.
Top middle: “Swedish kids don’t need an Ipad for christmas — take them to an asylum housing instead”
The same “How DARE you spend money on presents when people starve”-argument that have been used by leftists since the stone age, but with an added twist of focusing the bad conscience onto asylum seekers instead. Less than 5% of these are classified as actual refugees by the UN, and many reside in mansions with full hotel standard but that’s another story.
Bottom middle: “If an acquaintance spreads rumors about muslims — have a coffee at the local mosque”
Actually not all bad at first blush. A lot of friction between ethnic groups and religions WOULD disappear if people had regular contact as human beings. The problem is that it’s a unilateral adaptation being promoted. It’s only the westerner needing to gain understanding of the muslim; not a single word is said about the need for the immigrants needing to gain one iota of respect and understanding for its new country.
Bottom right: “The most primitive parts of humanity are revealed at Lucia”
Saint Lucias day is a traditional Christian event that takes place on Dec 13 in Sweden. Every town and every school has an election, a beauty pageant of sorts, where the most beautiful girl get to play the part of “St Lucia” and do some singing with an entourage of runner-ups. This tradition is waning, to the joy and delight of any true feminist despising such awful concepts as beauty pageants and gender stereotypes.
Top right: “The Alliance has granted SD the priviligie to trigger the government crisis”
An outspoken communist and editor of a tax-subsidized Marxist newspaper doing a guest column blaming PM Löfvens monumental incompetence on equal parts the conservative Alliance and nationalist party SD.
Middle left: “To all eager SD-voters: There is no ‘traditional Swedish culture'”
Total cultural nihilism at its finest. By denying a people it’s common history, value system and culture, the country ceases to be more than an administrative surface populated by strangers. Why would anyone fight wars to defend that country? Pay taxes? Bother to cheer at the olympic games? And of course, anyone arguing that there is no Afghan or Somalian culture would be crucified on the spot as a racist.
Middle middle: “The American consumerism culture affects us more than any other immigrant culture”
America has culture though. I guess I should be grateful for that merciful nod of acknowledgement. The bad news is that it is a plague strangling the Swedish culture that supposedly didn’t exist. And Burger King and Hobbit-movies are WAY more hazardous to the Swedish way of life than muslim no-go zones and returning IS fighters.
Bottom: “2058 cubic meters — the volume of those who drowned trying to reach Europe”
While nationalist party SD is desperately trying to scale down immigration to manageble volumes, this editorial tries to score a quick rethorical point by using the same term – volumes – when talking about the Africans drowning trying to sneak into Europe. Somehow, it is Europe’s fault that these people pile on unsafe boats in vast numbers, and then sink. And they’re not even fleeing war! Heck, look at a map — you reach Europe by way of Turkey, by land, if you’re fleeing unrest in the Middle East! Anyone drowning outside Spain or Malta merely did so in pursuit of higher standard of living!
And yet, this compassionate journalist is wringing his hands over these poor people, blaming us for their hazardous journey. The solution, of course, is to change the rules so that they can simply go collect their visa at the local Swedish embassies and fly by airplane instead.
More than 3 billion people live on less than $2,50 a day.
That cunning plan. I see a flaw in it. Can you?
