Reports from Sweden today illustrate new heights of violence across the country, while simultaneously indicating that Sweden engaged in never before seen borrowing rates the second quarter of this year, as both individuals and the government took out record levels of debt.
Violence In Sweden
The violence has been occurring predominantly in the immigrant suburbs of Malmö and Gothenburg, but has stretched all across Sweden in various manifestations.
Malmö has of course been seeing cars steadily burned as a nightly event for weeks on end. More fierce last night was the violence in Gothenburg apparently, as is reported below [forgive poor translation]:
Violent riots broke out Wednesday evening in Bergsjön in Gothenburg. Several cars set on fire, police and ambulance were subjected to stone throwing, and two policemen were injured, police writes on his website.
The troubles begin at half past eight o’clock in the evening. The police are alerted about the firecrackers thrown at Meteor Street in Bergsjön. Several police patrols alerted to the immigrant-dominated suburb, but for the moment seems to calm prevail in the area
At nine slamming it until the situation changes drastically.
– It was throwing stones at a police patrol at Rymdtorget and in conjunction with the start everything together, says police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg for free times.
Twenty minutes later hit a person, a passerby, a stone and an ambulance. Police forced to step in and protect the paramedics while a “youth gangs” throwing stones and using green laser blue light against staff. Anyone hit by the stone pass, however, escape serious injury.
This violence in Gothenburg was a mirror of that which has been going on in Malmö for what is now many months. It takes place, as all are well aware, in the gigantic government housing complexes in which are quartered tens of thousands of the Somali, Afghani, and Arab immigrants Sweden has imported into its country. Crime is legion in these communities- indeed so bad that one Somali man made news by claiming that crime and violence are worse in Sweden than his native Somalia, and that he is returning there so he can be safe.
As we all know, native Swedish police are the ones being forced to deal with these immigrant communities. This is something which has- as one would expect- become an extremely dangerous job. The UK’s Express describes it thus:
A regular shift for the Swedish force includes being attacked by thugs who throw stones at the officers and their patrol cars, vehicles being set ablaze, and in some cases personal injuries.
Malmö in south Sweden was one of the cities which was flagged as a particularly hit area in the liberal country.
Over the past three months, Malmö, which is Sweden’s third largest city, has suffered a surge of organised crime as more than 70 cars have burned out in arsonist attacks.
Several other Swedish cities have also been plagued by thugs setting cars ablaze, according to local media.
Losing Faith In Government
As anyone would expect, this is having a deleterious effect on law enforcement in general:
It is estimated that 80 per cent of the police officers are also considering changing professions, due to lack of funding and support to tackle the increasing levels of crime.
Speaking to NRK, police officer Peter Larsson said: “We have a major crisis. Many colleagues are choosing to quit.
“We are not investigating crimes, we don’t have time to cover the call-outs we are tasked with.
“A drastically worsened working environment means many colleagues are now looking for other work.”
Swedism And Debt
At the same time Sweden is dealing with this, it is also being reported today that 2nd Quarter borrowing in the country hit record levels among both the government and consumers.
Fria Tider provides these details:
A total of net lending of 133 billion. Last lending was at a similar level in 2007 – just before the financial crisis.
Banks and mortgage institutions borrowed together 75bn to households and 58 billion for non-financial companies during the second quarter of 2016. Compared to the second quarter last year, it was lending to non-financial companies increased the most.
They also make a point of showing the connection between government borrowing and immigration. Under the heading “Lends To Immigration” they report:
Riksbank continued in the second quarter of 2016 to pursue an expansionary monetary policy by leaving the repo rate unchanged, while the continued support purchases of government bonds, which the government has been in need to get the room for maneuver since asylum chaos began in 2015.
The Riksbank’s support purchases of government bonds amounted to 39 billion in the second quarter. The past two years, the Riksbank has made net purchases of government bonds to 236 billion and the total holdings at the end of the quarter to 250 billion.
I am far from an expert on monetary policy but to me this basically seems to say that the Swedish government is effectively printing extra money to pay for their policy of mass immigration. They are borrowing at never before seen levels in order to fund the massive amounts they spend on housing, feeding, and caring for the ‘refugees’ they have taken in (the vast majority of which are military-age male Muslims). Simultaneously, individual Swedish citizens and families are following suit, funding purchases with credit cards and taking out huge mortgages of absolutely ridiculous size.
While the lunacy is clear enough without an analogy, I can’t help but compare Sweden to some of the individuals that call in to the “Dave Ramsey Show” here in America. As an explanation for our European readers, it is a show in which a Southern Evangelical Financial Coach, Dave Ramsey, counsels people who have gotten heavily into debt. He also teaches people how to build wealth, have better boundaries, start businesses, etc, but mostly he is known for the debt issue. I would encourage all readers of this site to check him out (I digress).
His callers, however, are people in dire (though self-imposed) financial circumstances. They might be making 3500$ a month and perhaps have a 1700$ mortgage payment, spend 1800$ on fixed expenses, and then at the same time put vacations on credit cards and finance 35,000$ cars on top of that. Their income does not equal their monthly expenses, and all the difference is borrowed at interest. They are living fantasy lives of wealth and abundance through massive levels of debt, when in reality they are beyond broke.
Sweden seems to be moving toward a nation-state version of such reckless and self-destructive behavior. I understand the global economy is built on debt, but they are taking it to dangerous levels, and compounding such folly by using it to build what could most generously be called a house of cards. Even their national bank said, in June, that their housing bubble would lead to a “deep recession”. Not only is their country going up in flames, and their policeman quitting, but they are using massive levels of debt to pretend to be the great ‘humanitarian superpower’ they want to see themselves as.
In leveraging their actions in such a manner- actions carried out according to their sick religion of Progressive White suicide– they have have built a dark tower to rival Sauron’s- one of Islamic fundamentalism, violence, looting, crime, rape, and murder. But beyond just those societal time bombs we know so well, the debt issue suggests the tower may be built of cards anyway. With everything else being as it is, we can only hope that that is the case.
