    The above, "Killing Europe" was an especially good documentary about the immigration issues and cultural differences which are destroying much of Europe. I have never been to Europe and always wanted to go. This video coupled with one I saw about how the immigrants are trashing Paris with mattresses, debris and human excrement in the streets pretty much insures I will probably avoid many areas and hit Scotland and Ireland when I do go.

    I can only see that there are forces which are hell bent on chaos and destruction. London seems ruined too. Plus, it seems as a woman, the dangers are increased many fold.

    You can probably visit any european country. No worries. Just keep off the worst parts of any city. It is beatiful here. Just chaotic in some parts. Norway and finland is better off in scandinavia.

    My Dr.'s son spent a few weeks in Denmark last summer & there seemed to be no problem there as they had stricter immigration laws. I wonder if things have changed?

    Not related to Sweden but nevertheless the same, showing a worldwide moral and physical destruction of peoples ways of life:

    I was in for a test at the hospital (wait for a routine colonoscopy has been only 2 weeks contrarily to what American believe about free medicine).

    I was in the waiting room sitting beside a latin american men. So I started to speak in Spanish with him.

    He was from Guatemala. He asked me where I learned Spanish and I said El Salvador, and that I was there at 17, before the civil war, when everything was quiet, nice and that I could go by, as a blonde gringo woman, about anywhere without problems if I knew the culture, and that I went to help in Guatemala after the terrible earthquake of 1976. Betraying my age here lol.

    I told him that now my Salvadorian friend did not want me to go in El Salvador with her to meet those I knew Then. Salvador has become too dangerous for Salvadorians and worst for gringos, she would have to hire many body guards for me.

    He told me the same happened in Guatemala. In the 80’s you could walk the streets at 9hr pm without worries. Now everybody barricade themselves in their home by 6 pm not to get out even for emergencies.

    We both linked it to extremely corrupt governments in cohout with organised crime and with CIA interventions in those countries. From drugs to people kidnap.

    This is a worlwide program. Same is happening in Africa. We, western countries are just the last in the list, being schooled and with strong ethics, other tactics had to be planned in order to succeed.

    @Flash, yes you have a very valid point. Thanks for the story. Been thinking kind of in the same lines myself.

    @Foxie Loxie, Denmark is somewhat better off since they woke up a bit earlier. Sweden is somewhat behind when it comes to self protection. Its not called " the Stockholm syndrome" for nothing

    Perhaps I should rephrase my words. To me most politicians are clueless clowns and puppets, groomed they may be. The real brains behind them however are not clueless, but those are organizations and agencies. I don't doubt that the puppets wouldn't be following what ever "orders" they might be receiving from them. I do see the agenda behind all of these divide and conquer tactics. Sadly many humans fall for it.
    I think something else may be playing out... And their actions are very deliberate...

    I think the behaviors of those at the top now, are so ludicrous that they're TRYING to tell us to take note, SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG... BEFORE SOMETHING REALLY TERRIBLE HAPPENS.. How much more obvious can they make it, without coming out and saying as much??

    (Perhaps they can't, Yet they still want to warn us, so they behave erratically? ).. It's so obvious at this point, that it resembles someone trying to get some help, when their abuser is standing right next to them... That is what it seems like..

    They're giving us EVERY REASON, to come delve deeper into why they would do or say such things, yet we do not... You know those that want to mold the events of this world, are very well versed at how humanity responds to certain things, and they are armed with behavioral tools to help them accomplish this. But we're waking up.. Hopefully not too late.

    We need to start reacting to these things that we are noticing, BEFORE they turn into hindsight situations that we can't recover from...

    I think you're absolutely right, that those behind the scenes aren't stupid at all, and they know exactly whats going on, many moves ahead of us, and they are well versed in human responses, so they know how to get away with it.. Yet if our own families were behaving in such erratic ways, we absolutely WOULD address those things.

    Perhaps we should treat everything as if it is one family, as we are all sharing the same house...

    The refugee crisis has transformed Sweden into a multicultural 'hellhole'

    Raheem Kassam The Daily Caller
    Tue, 28 Aug 2018 12:44 UTC


    Refugees arriving in Malmö in 2015. © Johan Nilsson/TT

    Critics and observers argue back and forth about to whether Sweden is, in fact, the "rape capital of Europe" due to mass migration into the country. While new information released this week seems to put that debate to bed, the government's spokesmen have resorted to blaming poverty, toxic masculinity, and even homosexuality for the rise in violent rape and assaults.

    Sweden has undergone a transformation from socialist "paradise" to multicultural hellhole, though some of us would argue that one was always bound to lead to the other.

    This has caused consternation as figures ranging from academics to the President of the United States have used the nation as an example of what not to do with mass migration and cultural relativism.

    In my 2017 book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law is Coming to Neighborhood Near You, I used Sweden as an example, leaning on years of reporting, as well as personal tours of these "no go zones," which most writers at The New York Times or BBC daren't undertake themselves.

    What I found was patchy information - intentionally so - about the nature of the rise of criminality in the country. Incidents including grenade attacks, shootings, stabbings, mass automobile fires, and yes, rape.

    Now Sveriges Television (SVT), the national public broadcaster, has released details of a new study that disproves the allegation from the political left that increases in criminality are not directly linked to mass migration.

    In the report by the broadcasters' investigative team, it was revealed that 58 percent of convicted rape or attempted rape suspects were born abroad. This figure doesn't include those of foreign origin born in Sweden.

    Offenders included Algerians and Syrians, and researchers noted that conversations about the violence in high-migrant-populated neighborhoods often includes the role women play in migrants' home nations, and the "different view of women's freedom and sexuality" that are usually held in such places.

    While a full 58 percent of those convicted of rape and attempted rape over the past five years were born abroad, the number rises when you only look at "attempted and completed assault violence - where the victim and the perpetrator do not know each other."

    SVT also found that "more than eight out of ten convicted offenders were born in another country," while 40 per cent of these "have been in Sweden for a year or less."

    Over half of convicted offenders, they note, were born outside of Europe (427 out of 843), while nearly 40 percent "were born in the Middle East or Africa."

    "In the case of assault violence, 97 out of 129 are born outside of Europe," SVT adds.

    Bear in mind, this information arises from a liberal, left-leaning public broadcaster, not a fringe right-wing organization or news site.

    This should help correct the biases of the establishment media in the English-speaking world, who have oft-sought to play down the fears that mass migration a la Sweden could be coming to a neighborhood near you.

    Perhaps it will do no such thing. Too much of an inconvenient truth.

    But for victims of this violent crime surge in Europe, the reality is hard to come to grips with.

    Victims talk about their lives being irrevocably altered by rape or sexual assault while the government's spokesmen are already out there trying to play down the link between migration and the rise in crime.

    Jerzy Sarnecki, from the government's official immigration bureau, sought to blame the crisis on poverty, toxic masculinity, and even homosexuality:
    "The young men who commit rape often come from countries where vision of women is different from here in Sweden, that's quite correct. But let me point out that these people who come here, many of them have not lived at all in their countries but left them very early. Many of them have lived on streets in Tehran, Paris, Marseille or Stockholm. They have lived in roughly masculine environments where they only have had relations with other men. They have lived under very difficult circumstances and often commit themselves to crime".
    Despite what the benefactors and apologists of mass migration and multiculturalism suggest, however, the truth is beginning to cement itself in the minds of voting Swedes.

    With national elections just a few weeks out, the populist-nationalist Sweden Democrats party are set to secure around 20 percent of the vote if the polls are to be believed, likely putting them in second or third place in an election which eight major parties are contesting.

    It's another test for the status quo establishment, after which they will cobble together an unholy coalition government of the socialist left and the center-right - all globalists - and likely declare a victory.

    But the last election in 2014 saw the Sweden Democrats take just 12.9 percent of the vote and 20 seats. This time that number will almost double.

    Sweden Is Burning: Migrant Gangs Unleash Coordinated Fire-Bomb Rampage Across Multiple Cities

    14 August, 2018


    Many Swedes were horrified in early 2017 when U.S. President Donald Trump linked immigration to rising crime in Sweden, but an increasing number now agree with him.

    Amid soaring crime rates, gang violence, complaints about education, and pregnant mothers even being turned away from maternity wards due to a lack of capacity, resentment in Sweden has built over the influx of more than 600,000 immigrants over the past five years.



    And tonight is one of the worst night for violence in recent history as police report multiple gangs of masked youths rampaging across three major Swedish cities, setting cars on fire in what seems like a coordinated action.



    As The Daily Mail reports, police said they were dealing with multiple fires as dramatic footage showed youths targeting vehicles in a shopping centre and hospital car park at Frölunda Torg, south-west of Gothenburg.

    There were also reports of young people setting cars on fire in Hjällbo in the north of Gothenburg and further reports of fires in Trollhättan, although police were last night unsure whether the various blazes were related.

    Cars were also reported on fire in Malmo, at the southern tip of the country, and in Helsingborg, further south than Gothenburg.

    Police report that the situation is under control and they remain on the premises to keep order.
    Frölunda: A group of about 6-8 masked youth fires and throws stones. 31 cars have burned and in addition to these 35 cars are injured. Nobody is arrested.

    Nordost: A group of about 8-10 young people throws stones and fires. 15 cars have burned. Nobody is arrested.

    Trollhättan: A larger group of about 30-40 young people throws stones and fires. Six cars have burned and another few cars must be damaged. Here roads have been blocked by youngsters and they have even thrown stones against the police and their vehicles. At the moment, identification of young people is ongoing.

    When most fires started within a short period of time, it can not be excluded that there is a connection between the fires, the case will be investigated. Polish patrons will remain in the affected areas as long as it is considered necessary.


    It is no surprise then, as we noted previously, judging by the latest polls, the rise of extreme populist groups in Sweden is accelerating fast.

    As Reuters reports, dozens of people have been killed in the past two years in attacks in the capital Stockholm and other big cities by gangs that are mostly from run-down suburbs dominated by immigrants.



    With public calls growing for tougher policies on crime and immigration, support has risen for the ironically named, Sweden Democrats, a party with neo-Nazi roots that wants to freeze immigration and to hold a referendum on Sweden’s membership of the European Union.



    Their worried mainstream rivals have started moving to the right on crime and immigration to try to counter the Sweden Democrats’ threat in the Sept. 9 election. But so far, they are playing into the hands of the far-right.
    “Right now they (mainstream parties) are competing over who can set out the most restrictive policies,” said Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lovin, whose Green Party is part of a minority government led by the Social Democratic Party.
    “It clearly benefits the Sweden Democrats.”
    Opinion polls put the Sweden Democrats on about 20 percent support, up from the 13 percent of votes they secured in the 2014 election and the 5.7 percent which saw them enter parliament for the first time in 2010.



    The Sweden Democrats’ rise on the back of anti-immigration sentiment mirrors gains for right-wing, populist and anti-establishment parties in other European countries such as Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia and Austria.

    The Sweden Democrats still trail the Social Democratic Party but has overtaken the main opposition Moderates in many polls. All mainstream parties have ruled out working with them.

    But they could emerge from the election as kingmakers, and a strong election showing could force the next government to take their views into consideration when shaping policy.

    Their policies include a total freeze on asylum seekers and accepting refugees only from Sweden’s neighbors in the future. They also want tougher penalties for crime and more powers for police, and say tax cuts and higher spending on welfare could be funded by cutting the immigration budget.

    Jimmie Akesson, the leader of the Sweden Democratic party, has described the situation as “pretty fantastic”.
    “We are dominating the debate even though no one will talk to us,” he told party members.
    The Sweden Democrats have succeeded in linking the two in the minds of many voters, even though official statistics show no correlation between overall levels of crime and immigration. However, while the government denies it has lost control but Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has not ruled out sending the military into problem areas.
    “Sweden is going down a more right-wing path,” said Nick Aylott, a political scientist at Sodertorn University said. “It is almost impossible to avoid according some sort of influence to a party with around 20 percent of the vote.”
    Trump was right after all.

    The incumbent parties in Sweden would have known that mass immigration would destroy their power base and usher in populist anti-immigration candidates.

    It looks, therefore as if they were coerced into agreeing to an excessive level of immigration.


    to me, the second video above is saying that the 'Democrat' party is not necessarily sinister , although it is not entirely free of nasty right wing associations. It must be remembered that it is the prerogative of the citizens of a Nation to decide how many, if any, people they accept into their country, and an anti immigration stance is not necessarily a racist stance (although it often is).

    Sweden, clearly has over done it, and their leaders must have known that the result would be serious destabilisation. A large country like Germany obviously has a greater capacity to integrate the new arrivals than Sweden does. One hopes that they will succeed.

    I asked someone I know who knows about this from the inside. I was expecting a response along the lines of - ' this is a bit hysterical, yes there are issues, but we are coping'. Not so. He said that the situation was worse than reported, really bad, and people habituated to one of the most peaceful, law abiding and stable societies on earth are facing horrendous level of crime and violence, and a Government that attempts to down play the situation.

    Sweden is being deliberately destabilised. What could this lead to? More violence. The state struggling to cope, and a break-down in order. Almost low intensity civil war. So what do those who coerced Sweden to accept the refugees wish to see? Trouble, and troops in the streets, martial law and NATO assistance.

    Where does that lead? Full NATO membership.(currently they have associate status). Another chess piece slides into place.
    Thanks to Jayke's excellent post on the Tommy thread we now know how this coercion is happening. It is a matter of agreed Europe-wide policy originating from the 1973 oil crisis.

    Swedish populist party wins so many seats it's having trouble filling them

    The populist Sweden Democrats won so many votes in the country's recent elections that they won more seats in local governments than they had candidates to fill them.

    While it is not uncommon to see empty seats in municipal governments in Sweden at the end of an election cycle, it is rare to see empty seats after an election. The Sweden Democrats (SD) now find themselves in the position of having 22 empty seats across the country in 17 municipalities due to winning such a large share of votes, SVT reports.

    One of the reasons the SD have so many empty seats to fill is that the party locked in a certain number of candidates prior to the election and won more seats than they anticipated.

    "On a locked list, the party itself has set up its candidates within the stipulated time, and then you can not add any names," said Hans-Ivar Swärd, election officer at the Swedish election authority (Valmyndigheten).

    The issue for the populist party, according to Swärd, is that they have an elected mandate but due to not having people to fill the seats, they cannot fulfil that mandate.

    In nine municipalities the SD locked the candidate list without even having one name on it because if the list was left open the party would not have the ability to control which candidates were running for the party but this has meant empty seats in seven different municipalities.

    SD municipal politician Petter Nilsson explained the reasoning behind the locked lists saying: "We chose to lock the lists to ensure that we did not get the wrong candidates, that is, those who were not Sweden Democrats."

    "It is not desirable. The best thing that could happen is that we have candidates in all municipalities and all are eligible," he added.

    This year's Swedish national elections saw the populists make huge gains while establishment parties fell in the polls, including the ruling Social Democrats who scored their worst election victory in a hundred years.

    While many parties have outright refused to negotiate with the SD on a potential coalition deal, a recent survey of Moderate Party politicians showed a majority willing to have a dialogue for a potential governing agreement.

    Conservative Guru Jordan Peterson Hits Back at Sweden's Feminist FM

    Sputnik Viral
    11:27 13.11.2018
    (updated 15:10 13.11.2018)



    Jordan Peterson, the author of the new bestseller "12 Rules for Life. An Antidote to Chaos", addressed the criticism from one of the architects of Sweden's "feminist" policy in a series of interviews with Swedish media by accusing Margot Wallstrom of "not doing her homework".

    Last week, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom made waves with her curt remarks about Canadian professor Jordan Peterson, accusing him of misogyny and bluntly telling the freethinker, who attracted international attention with his consequent criticism of feminism and mandatory gender-neutral pronouns, to "crawl back under your rock."

    According to Peterson, Wallstrom has no idea what she's talking about.
    "If she had done more than just merely read the second-hand opinions from ideologically obsessed journalists, she might have come up with other thoughts," Peterson told Expressen, a tabloid daily.
    According to Peterson, Wallstrom has no evidence whatsoever to substantiate her unfounded claims of misogyny and failed to do the difficult task of doing the necessary investigation.

    Peterson stressed that virtually everything he has told his students over the past 30 years is on record, including hundreds of hours of video lectures. Had there been anything remotely misogynist to suffice for a reasonable charge, then "people who have made it their job to drown him" would have gone to any length to find the evidence, which apparently doesn't exist, the Toronto University professor said.
    "I would suggest that someone in [Wallstrom's] position with authority and reputation be somewhat more careful about branding and casually insulting people she knows absolutely nothing about," Peterson said.


    By his own admission, he'd invited Wallstrom to one of his lectures in order to form her own opinion, an opportunity she apparently forfeited. In another interview with the website Kvartal, the clinical psychologist said that someone in Wallstrom's position is expected to "do her homework" before "throwing casual insults".

    Peterson claimed to have helped many people in Sweden "put their lives together" and combat the afflictions of alcoholism and depression.

    From Paul Joseph Watson, today:
    Sweden: Green Party Suggests Confiscating Citizens’ Homes to Give Them to Migrants

    Proposal to “evacuate people who have too large housing”

    The Green Party in Sweden has suggested confiscating the homes of citizens and giving them to migrants if the property is deemed to be too large or if the owner has more than one residence.

    Blogger Katerina Janouch reveals how the party wanted to introduce a new law which would allow “Municipalities to seize housing to give them refugees.”

    Under the proposal, authorities would be able to “evacuate people who have too large housing,” for example “couples where the children moved home or cohabited where the partner has a residence elsewhere.”

    Under any such legislation, homeowners wouldn’t even be compensated, whereas before the government would have had to pay them at least 125% market value.

    After attracting controversy, the proposal was apparently withdrawn. A list of names of people who were liable to have their homes confiscated was also reportedly circulated, although in the article it’s not clear whether this occurred in Sweden or Norway.

    The Green Party is by no means a fringe force in Swedish politics, being a minority member of the country’s coalition government.

    Given such an absurd suggestion, is it really any surprise that liberal basketcase Sweden is basically one giant meme at this point?

    Earlier this year, students in Spain were forced to leave their homes despite having paid their accommodation fees to make way for migrants who just arrived on the Aquarius rescue ship in Valencia.

    Back in 2016, a hospital on the Italian island of Sardinia was ordered to kick out local patients in order to make way for migrants.

    The German government also announced it would spend €600 million euros housing migrants in upmarket Berlin hotels at a cost of €18,000 per “refugee,” while the city’s 10,000 homeless population remained on the streets.

    Earlier that year, an 80-year-old hotel owner was forced by police to house numerous migrants in his small guest house.

    Video footage shows Luigi Fogli pleading with authorities as the African migrants take up residence.

    “Do you want to put them in my apartment too?” Fogli cries as his protest falls on deaf ears.

    I think the "zombie intellectuals" are really going all out for a crack in the societal block of slate.

    They seem to think they have tapped the location where they want it to break, enough.

    In North Wales slate quarries, the big skill is in knowing exactly where to tap the block of slate to make it split in the right place. This fake democratic system requires that 50/50 is tweaked to order. They hope that when the split comes, it will be the 'conservatives' who are split from the larger block, not them.

    Their apparent certainty is scary.

    this is not even socialism anymore, a kind of socialism that allows for free medicare and good living standards for all. This is not soft socialism anymore, this is clearly communism thinking and potential doing , where the government can grab anything at its will. Without giving the money back to hard working hard earned wealth of the middle class. Making everyone poor.

    I never ever thought I would ever say the following, because fundamentally, I am anti guns, I think it creates misery in general and wars.

    But, if it is what is planned, the countries where people do not own guns, people have no force nor any convincing ways to stop a communist government.

    So, Americans, make sure you keep your guns. You may be the last country standing against this hegemony of the Elite and their communist thinkers.
