In case anyone reading this is not familiar with the concept, the ‘Overton Window’ is a term that is used to describe the overall accepted range of discourse within a culture or nation.
I picture it like a two or three dimensional cylinder drawn on a piece of paper, where the outer edge on the each side represents the furthest reaches of ‘acceptable’ left and right wing though.
The area within the Overton Window is of course always evolving, and for the last few decades the has been successful in vastly shifting it leftward.
As an oft-cited example…. as far back as 1991, saying that gay people should be allowed to get married and have kids would have been considered right on the edge of unacceptable or crazy, and sort of ridden that lefward barrier. On the right, you could perhaps still get away with saying single motherhood was bad, whereas since then that quite commonsensical statement has been pushed outward by the Alynskyites and now would be considered an unnacceptable or crazy statement off beyond the rightward edge of the window.
Just as stock markets can become volatile, and swing up and down wildly (though in America they are the opposite of that at present), so too in the last 18 months has the Overton Window become more volatile.
This was in part due to the rise of Donald Trump, as well as the massive rise of young traditionalists and Identitarians. Both drastically pulled the Overton Window rightward. Similarly, the incessant lying of the Sorosberg, Inc media has made things even more eventful and fluid.
As a result, the Progressives have had to watch the Overton Window, which for the last four decades has been a smooth but swift and immovable river flowing ever-leftward, became a raging rapid with water bouncing around jagged rocks, complete with horrifying possibility of new courses opening up for it.
And suddenly, as a result, the meme jedi’s have detected a cosmic disturbance in the force. As if the voices of millions upon millions of dead Vikings had suddenly cried out in anguish.
Sweden…. has *broke* the Overton Window.
How did they do this you ask?
Let us take a look:
Leading doctors have said they back NHS-funded womb transplants for biological males who identify as women, a procedure which experts say will be possible within 10 years.
It is believed that medical funding and advances will make the procedure possible within a decade, after pioneering operations at the University of Gothenburg on womb-less women have seen at least five children born as a result of a procedure similar to the one doctors are working towards.
Prompted by the Swedish team’s success, activists demanded the NHS make womb transplants available to male-born transgender people, a call doctors and fertility experts told the Mail on Sunday that they back.
Consultant Gynaecologist Dr. Arianna D’Angelo, of the NHS’s Wales Fertility Institute, said it was right from an “ethical point of view”.
She said: “We already have fertility preservation for transgender people, to give them the possibility to have their own genetic child.
“So I don’t see much of a difference between that and actually delivering their own child.”
Dr. Francoise Shelfield, a clinical lecturer in obstetrics and gynaecology at University College London, who has treated infertile NHS patients for 30 years, added her support and pointed to the UK’s equality laws.
“If we are saying we should have equality and we have legislation [defending the rights of transgender people], I do not see why not,” she said.
Director of Liverpool University’s Health Law & Regulation Unit Amel Alghrani is pressing for talks on whether womb transplants for transgender people should be publicly funded.
Making her case in the Journal of Law and the Biosciences, the medical ethics lawyer said such a move would “revolutionise reproduction” and lead to other groups of people demanding womb implants — including homosexual and straight men who wanted to experience the ‘joys’ of carrying a child.
“Homosexual couples may also wish to procreate in this fashion, while single men may opt for it to avoid surrogacy,” she said.
(Editor’s note: I am not going to analyze the above because it is just too sick. Suffice it to say that when Reconquest occurs, those who supported the above should absolutely be tied up in burlap sacks and thrown to their deaths off of buildings.)
With this news, the left side of the Overton Window exploded into a violent cataclysm… There was a great thundering and eruption. In all directions went blood, tears, CNN logos, bagels, and kebab… and suddenly the entire structure was revealed to have shifted.
On that left side, where a smooth border of pink unicorns and ear gauges used to float, suddenly sat an entirely new cylindrical window, branching off from the original.
Just as in the classic documentary Donnie Darko, a tangential universe had opened up. Sweden was now completely separated from the rest of the earth.
With this rupture a powerful psychic force started to animate many of those progressives left behind. Their self-hatred grew suddenly and exponentially, their amygdalas became even more shriveled up, their remaining testosterone turned to vinegar, and they began to speak in tongues.
In other Progressives however these psionic disruptions caused far different results.
Immediate examples were apparent, including the following two concerning individuals previously known as icons of the left.
Bill Gates- the billionaire philanthropist and consummate limousine liberal- questioned Germany’s immigration policy and suggested that African migrants should be dissuaded and blocked(!) from coming to Europe…
In an interview with the German Welt am Sonntag newspaper, Gates said massive population growth in Africa will result in “enormous [migratory] pressure” on Europe unless countries increase overseas development aid payments.
Praising Germany having achieved its commitment to devote 0.7 per cent of GDP to foreign aid as “phenomenal”, the 61-year-old called on “other European nations to follow its example”.
But Gates also spoke of a dilemma caused by ‘the German attitude to refugees’, referring to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to open Europe’s borders to illegal migrants arriving from the third world.
“On the one hand you want to demonstrate generosity and take in refugees, but the more generous you are, the more word gets around about this — which in turn motivates more people to leave Africa,” Gates told the Sunday newspaper.
“Germany cannot possibly take in the huge, massive number of people who are wanting to make their way to Europe.”
Because of this, Gates stressed that “Europe must make it more difficult for Africans to reach the continent via the current transit routes”.
As if Gates’ sudden embrace of Nazism wasn’t enough, former Hole front-woman and Kurt Cobain widow Courtney Love followed suit.
Love attacked pro-Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, tweeting that she was a “…vile disgrace to women and all mankind…’.
The attack was in response to Sarsour raising money for some Somali-Ohioan woman who was the victim of a vicious hate crime when a hispanic White person attacked her for not eating bacon (not really, the police now say the whole thing was a fraud and that the non-Muslims stepped in when they saw a Somali women beating her child in the face with a shoe).
The fact that Love attacked this poor, discriminated-against Palestinian activist, and had the temerity to refer to the human species as “MANkind”, made clear that she too had become an acolyte of Nazism.
Thus in two short weeks left-wing 1990’s icons became New Hitler’s in the eyes of Progressives.
Back To Sweden
In the tangential universe in Sweden that is now growing off the original Overton Window, things look to be improving.
Stockholm has been the site of 552 shootings linked to criminal gangs since January 2011, 46 of which were deadly. Swedish newspaper Expressen reports that the city has seen a “record number of unsolved murders amidst seemingly endless gang shooting incidents” in recent years.
Expressen’s analysis of the situation, which included mapping 192 individuals who police confirmed to be part of gangs in Stockholm and the city’s organised crime scene, uncovered striking statistics about mass migration’s effect on crime in the Swedish capital.
According to the study, 94.5 per cent of people involved with organised crime had at least one parent born abroad. 40.6 per cent of the criminals looked at by the newspaper were themselves born overseas, whilst both parents of 82.2 per cent of gang members were foreign-born.
The report notes the main country of origin for gang criminals was Iraq, but other overrepresented nations which stood out to researchers include Somalia, Syria, and Turkey.
Criminologist Manne Gerell, a researcher at Malmö University, said that “structural racism” is what lies behind the massive overrepresentation of migrants from poor and violence-plagued third world countries in Sweden’s crime statistics.
“Many people who come from other countries and living in deprived areas feel they are discriminated against,” he told Expressen.
Thankfully now that this is understood Sweden will be able to solve the massive gang violence and murder epidemic.
If structural racism is to blame for it, then surely increased immigration, reduced police presence, lax-er sentencing for criminals, and more government aid should totally eliminate the problem.
