Earlier in the week we profiled an occurrence in Stockholm in which Antifa members ambushed the Sons of Odin during one of their nightly patrols. You can read that post here.
This is an update on that story, as apparently Swedish police have arrested one of the Antifa, and the one who apparently injured a Sons of Odin member (sending him to the hospital) by kicking him or punching him with brass knuckles or some such thing once he had already been knocked to the ground.
The attacker is 21 years old but apparently his name has not been released. His picture is the title image for this article, and is apparently taken from an incident in which he was arrested for vandalizing a sign. Apparently he has a lengthy arrest record including drugs, destruction of property, and public drunkenness.
This news (the original version of which can be seen here at Fria Tider) is not of a monumental importance in the overall situation in Europe, but is interesting as a case study. This young man is of similar age to the Sons of Odin members. He is also similar in that he has a predilection for violence- or at least willingness to engage in it. Why then did he end up fighting with Antifa on behalf of national suicide and White self-hatred, instead of the opposite?
Surely we can posit potential reasons. First and foremost is brainwashing at the hands of the media. He has been told his whole life that White people are racist, that Sweden is a nation whose history is built on oppression, yada, yada, yada, etc. We are all well aware of this.
Furthermore we must not discount the fact that Antifa has huge levels of funding, both from the government as well as bracket-worthy ‘overseas elements’, most notably George Soros. Considering that this young man and his mates are smoking marijuana and taking amphetamines and getting drunk in public regularly enough for it to be reflected in their police record, the money they receive- or which floats down to the group- must be considered another important factor.
What we can most conclude from the study of such individuals, I believe, is a healthy awareness of the power of culture and art to direct action and belief. I can speak to this personally, as at age 21 I was a bit of a brain-washed Progressive myself (though in the very early stages of awakening and red-pilling). I would attribute this to in part to the education system and family influence and all those sorts of things, but just as much or more to the influence of art and entertainment. Almost all of the art that spoke to me- music, books, movies- had a Progressive influence. Later on once awakened I was able to see many other artistic influences that were the opposite (such as Tolkien), but I do not think one can argue that Western art and entertainment and literature over the last 60-100 years has had a pronounced Progressive undertone.
Therefore this speaks to the need- more now than ever- for Identitarian and Traditionalist authors and artists to create works of art that speak to our people- especially our youth- in new ways, and begin the long process of re-orienting our tribe.
In the meantime, when the war arrives, we can at least look forward to busting Antifa heads.
Editors Note: Would love feedback from reader’s on this same question. Why did this 21 year old end up a brainwashed traitorous Progressive, rather than an Identitarian? Why did he end up part of Antifa, instead of the Sons of Odin? And what must happen, before young men such as him are more likely to grow up with a proper compass bearing?
