We have all obviously labored long and hard in our quest to raise awareness of what is going on in Europe.
I remember when I first started this site, the idea that there was anything ‘wrong’ in Sweden was considered a harebrained thing, like you were some paranoiac or something.
It seems, however, as though things might be changing in that respect.
Consider the article from the Times.
My dispatch from #Sweden, which is experiencing an unprecedented surge in shootings, bombings and sexual crime. The crisis is mainly restricted to areas predominantly populated by immigrants, so ordinary Swedes read the news with disbelief: https://t.co/5aAPKTs044

It includes the following gems:
“In Malmo, where a fifth of the 340,000 inhabitants are under 18, children as young as 14 roam the streets with Kalashnikov assault rifles and bulletproof vests. The average age of gang members is 22, the vast majority of them hailing from migrant families.”
“For a long time the Swedish establishment played down the decay of immigrant-dominated suburbs, but it can no longer ignore the explosion of violence.”
“’We have really reached the bottom: people use machineguns and hand grenades — they want to kill,’ said Zoran Markovic, the former chief of community policing in Rosengard.”
“The situation has drastically worsened in the past two years. Markovic said the police are overstretched. Rosengard’s main school, which had pupils from nearly 200 different ethnic backgrounds, was closed because of social tension.”
“Last August Eriksson was on duty at a pro-refugee rally in Stockholm when he was stabbed by an Afghan asylum seeker.”
“Stockholm’s mayor, Karin Wanngard, protested that Rinkeby was a ‘fine neighbourhood’ and ‘teeming with vitality’.”
Here is the link to the article in full.
There was also recently an interview with Peter Springare, the Swedish policeman who achieved notoriety last year, in which he articulates pessimism regarding the countries future:
Recently, Swedish journalist Katerina Janouch interviewed the Swedish policeman Peter Springare, who in 2017 made headlines in Sweden, when he posted on the current state of the kingdom on Facebook.
In a longer interview he now admits that he is even more worried, that mayhem in fact is coming, and that people in general have no idea what will hit them.
What do we see is happening in Sweden now?
– I am deeply concerned about the development. And I’m wondering how far it must go before people in decision-making positions and politicians wake up and see where we are heading. One continues to put the head in the sand. In Helsingborg, but also here in Örebro, one goes out and say we have full control. It’s the other way around, we’ve lost control. And in the next breath one says that this just spurts us, that we do not give in. That we’ll will work even harder. But that’s not the case either. Because I know how one is affected when exposed to threats. It certainly affects. It affects the police operations, both the business and individual police officers. And then the debate will be, is it worth it, should we expose ourselves … I know there are a number of police officers in Örebro who do not want to go to work for example in Vivalla. Because it is unpleasant. When we reach that point, we are in really, really bad shape. When the police end up in a situation where one is afraid to end up in an ambush, then it has gone very, very far and we are in trouble. To me, it’s a mystery how police chiefs to the public persists that we have full control. What do they want to gain?
Is it because one does not want to scare people?
– Yes, but it does not help to lie to fix the problem, because then one gets into a “Baghdad Bob” spirit. People do not understand how bad it is. And you can not ask them to understand, because they do not get the correct information. I dislike that. However, if you speak of exactly how it is, you can make an opinion. Then politicians will get more mandates and support among the population to make radical decisions to address the problems. To sugarcoat never helps. Being Baghdad Bob only makes it worse in the long run.
Many believe that Sweden is lost when it comes to crime.
Peter is silent for a while. He does not protest immediately, does not disagree with me as I had hoped when I pronounce one of those powerful and in many people’s ears provocative statement. Finally he says:
– Yes …
Another article indicates parallel concerns:
However, another report from BRÅ shows that every third Swedish woman, 31 percent, now feel quite or very unsafe when going outside in their own residential area in the evening
Finally, an interview with Geert Wilders provides a similar picture:
Is the refusal to acknowledge the connection between Islam and terror part of the problem?
No doubt. The leading parties of Europe now say: Islam is not the problem, it’s the salafists. As if we can talk about 2 sorts of Islam. What about the salafi and wahabi states of the Middle East that fund and indoctrinate people with ideologies in Europe and America? Saudi Arabia, the state in which Trump was waving with swords, is one of the most problematic states together with the rest of the gulf monarchies.
How much time is left?
Many researches have shown the Islamic influence on society. Muslims do not need to be a majority in a particular state in order to provoke major changes in regard to freedom, to violence and to the rule of law. In reality, we are late. We need to rise again and change this reality. We don’t have a choice. Our existence is at stake. People in whole of Europe realise what the effects are of islamisation. People are afraid to send their kids to school or to the main cities. If we won’t fight, by the end of the century we will be part of the Arab world or of Africa. In Britain there are already sharia courts on Europe’s soil. This isn’t a tale, this is real, the situation is terrible.
All around, we see articles and tweets and discussion that acknowledges what is going on.
It doesn’t always seem like it, but the atmosphere in this regard is vastly different than only a couple years ago.
I attribute this to a great degree to Donald Trump, as well as folks like Nigel Farage, but I think the everyday non-stop metapolitical warfare carried out by millions of regular people is the biggest factor.
(beyond just the impossible to ignore severity of the situation of course)
I am not hopeful that this increase of discussion about Sweden’s situation will actually cause its leaders to act differently.
Indeed, as I lay out in my new book, such developments may cause the corrupt, Postmodern Suicidalists that rule countries like Sweden and Germany to double down and become that much crazier…
Either way though, it is a welcome thing that the realities we have long pointed out are finally becoming accepted by wider swaths of the population.
Next, we just need our proposed solutions to be accepted in the same manner 🙂
