The Warning From Sweden

Posted on | June 19, 2024 | 2 Comments

Sweden has a population of about 10.5 million, or about the same as the state of North Carolina. Twenty years ago, you had to seek out “far right” sources (which, of course, I did) to learn anything about the problems caused by immigration in Sweden. Many of the atrocity tales came from the city of Malmö which, for some reason, was a magnet for Third World immigration and Malmö became notorious as a “no-go zone” ruled by violent foreign gangs. After the surge of migrants circa 2015, however, a taboo topic that was once relegated to obscure right-wing blogs has recently become the subject of mainstream journalism:

“Everyone feels at risk,” declared Charlie Duxbury of the neo-liberal POLITICO website [in October 2023], as he reported that a fourth bombing had occurred in his area of Stockholm since the start of the year. In total, there have been at least 134 bombings across Sweden in 2023, compared to 90 for the entirety of last year. Meanwhile, there have been 289 shootings since the start of the year, following 391 in 2022. . . .
The scale of immigration to the country, which soared in the wake of the 2015 European Migrant Crisis, has meant that now at least one-fifth of Sweden’s population are foreigners.

After a string of bombings this February, Breitbart reported:

Since the police began keeping such statistics in 2018, there have been at least 650 recorded bombings in Sweden.

In terms of gun violence, Sweden has become the Chicago of Europe, so to speak: “Twenty years ago, crimes involving firearms were almost non-existent [in Sweden]. Yet in 2022 the gun murder rate in capital Stockholm was around 25 times higher than in London.” How much has migration transformed Sweden? Among its vastly expanded foreign population, Sweden in 2022 had about 150,000 immigrants from just three African countries — Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia:

“People from Somalia made up the largest group of foreign-born citizens from Africa living in Sweden in 2022, with nearly 70,000 people. Eritreans and Ethiopians made up the second and third largest group, respectively, meaning that a high number of the foreign-born born population from African countries come from the Horn of Africa. This is a region characterized by famines, terrorism, and authoritarian rule over the past decades, resulting in a high number of refugees.”

This is to say nothing at all of the many thousands from Sudan (8,372), Nigeria (8,272), Congo (6,684), Gambia (5,940), Uganda (5,781), Kenya (5,419), etc., and never mind the Turks, Iranians, Afghans, etc.

The political impact has been profound, as Stefan Hedlund, a professor at Sweden’s Uppsala University, wrote in February:

There was a time when Sweden was looked upon by American liberals as an inspirational example of the Scandinavian welfare state. . . .
Present-day Sweden carries the dubious distinction of having the highest rate of gangland killings in Europe. It boasts the lowest average age of serious offenders, with children in their low teens being arrested for murder. Increasing segments of suburbs are officially classified as “especially vulnerable areas,” where it is “hard, bordering on impossible” for the police to operate. In layman’s terms, these are no-go zones, where local clans rule and where first responders will not enter without flak jackets and police escort.
An early warning was provided in 2017 when United States President Donald Trump made a quip about rioting in Sweden: “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this!” Who indeed? At the time, such comments were met with disdain and ridicule. Today, it is not so funny anymore.
Sweden has transitioned from being a model of inspiration to becoming a warning example. As gangland violence is spreading across borders, its Scandinavian neighbors experience growing fears of ending up in what is known in Denmark as the “Swedish condition.”
Defying an old taboo, the Swedish government has called on the military to assist the police. . . .
While the deterioration in physical security is causing Swedish nationals with entrepreneurial skills to leave the country, it is also becoming increasingly difficult for industry to recruit high-level talent from abroad. These problems are amplified by a deterioration in the quality of education that has resulted from increasing ethnic disorder and outright violence in schools. . . .
The main cause of the crisis is a combination of an open-door migration policy with no accompanying policy to help the newcomers integrate. The consequence has been the emergence of neighborhoods where almost all residents are immigrants, where unemployment rates are very high and where the children of immigrants go to schools where no other children, often not even teachers, are proficient in Swedish. This has served as an incubator for crime, as gangs take over where society fails. . . .
Out of a population of 10.61 million in 2022, a total of 2.14 million were registered as foreign-born, more than double the number in 2000. That comes to just over 20 percent. If a broader definition is used, to include those who are born in Sweden with two foreign-born parents, the number rises to 26 percent. . . .
The reason why the problem has been allowed to get out of control is that so many representatives of the media and of the political establishment have for so long been cocooned in naive views of criminal dangers, leading to extremely lax legislation and enforcement, and of dangerous strains of Islamism, leading to a profound inability to scale up defenses against the current wave of radicalization. Those chickens are now coming home to roost. . . .

Sweden’s once left-wing government is now controlled by a center-right coalition with the support of the far-right Sweden Democrats party, which got 20.5% of the vote in the 2022 parliamentary elections. In order to appease (and possibly co-opt) the Sweden Democrats, the governing coalition has begun taking measures to crack down on crime and discourage further immigration, to the dismay of Sweden’s elite.

“The Sweden as we know it is dying,” Karlstad University Professor Tobias Hübinette said last year, lamenting the evaporation of his country’s left-wing policy traditions, and blaming Swedes for seeking to avoid the dangerous foreigners: “Sweden is perhaps more segregated than any other country in Europe. In cities like Göteborg, Malmo and Stockholm, everybody sees it: the white Swedish population does not live in the same area as the immigrants.” Segregation in Sweden?

Two Innocent Bystanders Killed in Mass Shooting at Texas ‘Juneteenth’ Celebration

Posted on | June 17, 2024 | No Comments

Lyndsey Vicknair (left) and Ara Duke (right)

An early celebration of the newest federal holiday:

The Round Rock Police Department has identified the two people killed in a shooting at the city’s Juneteenth celebration on Saturday night as 33-year-old Lyndsey Vicknair from Manor and 54-year-old Ara Duke from Pflugerville.
Neither victim was involved in the altercation that led to the shooting, police said.
The incident occurred around 10:50 p.m. at Old Settlers Park after a fight broke out between two groups during the annual festival. In addition to the two fatalities, 14 people were injured in the shooting. . . .
Round Rock detectives are currently interviewing witnesses, analyzing evidence, and pursuing leads in the ongoing investigation. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects involved.

Everybody knows Texas is controlled by Republicans. Probably some of those “far right” extremists committed this atrocity, right? The shooter was a racist Trump voter wearing a MAGA hat, right?

Police in an Austin, Texas suburb have released a suspect’s description following a mass shooting at a Juneteenth celebration over the weekend.
Two people were killed, and 14 others were wounded at about 10:50 p.m. Saturday in Round Rock, police said. A search is on for a man described as a Black male with a thin build, approximately 5 feet, 7 inches tall with short dreadlocks. He was wearing a white hoodie at the time of the incident.
The suspect is 19 to 20 years old and should be considered armed and dangerous . . .

Another good week for my Senators – we split a two-game series with the Red Sox and then took two out of three from the O’s. This puts us at 37-42, 13.5 behind Pete’s Braves and three games behind the third-place Twins. I have no idea where this puts us in the race for the wild-card slot, and I’m not even worrying about it. Just want to get up to .500 for the year.

Typical Wisconsin Democrat Gets Arrested Twice, Charged With Five Felonies

Posted on | June 16, 2024 | No Comments

Clayton William ‘Sofie’ Solberg

What do I mean by “typical Wisconsin Democrat”? Well, how about a transgender-identified dude who posts lots of violent #Antifa memes on his social media and also enjoys posting pictures of his genitalia to “small penis humiliation” forums on Reddit? Is that “typical” enough for you? And do I need to explain what I mean by “felonies”?

“Antifascist” Trans-Identified Male Arrested For Possession Of Child Pornography Two Times In Four Months
A trans-identified male in Wisconsin is facing five counts of felony child pornography possession after local authorities were tipped off by the nation’s top child safeguarding organization. Clayton William Solberg, also known as Sofie Solberg, was first arrested in December of 2023, but was found with even more child sexual abuse material while out on bond.
Solberg, 22 and of Galesville, was first apprehended by Trempealeau County deputies on December 27, 2023, after the Sheriff’s office received a cyber-tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). He was charged with two counts of possession of child pornography, and was booked in the Trempealeau County jail. On January 3, he was released on a $2,500 cash bond.
Among the conditions of his bond was that Solberg was not to have contact with minors or vulnerable adults, which the court noted included “those where defendant was previously residing.” Solberg was also prohibited from accessing the internet and having any devices which could connect to the internet.
But not long after being released from jail pending trial, the NCMEC became aware of a Dropbox baring Solberg’s “feminine” name which was transferring child sexual abuse material. The account was registered to an address in the City of Galesville.
A search warrant was executed on Solberg’s Google Photos account which found several more videos and images of child sexual abuse.
On May 7, Trempealeau County deputies raided Solberg’s home and found three devices capable of connecting the internet, which were prohibited under the conditions of Solberg’s January bond. The man was once again arrested, and this time his bond was set by the court at $20,000.
Solberg posted bond this past Wednesday, June 12. He is prohibited from possessing any device that can connect to the internet, prohibited from accessing the internet, and is to have no contact with minors. . . .

You can read the rest of that from Anna Slatz at Reduxx, but what made me put “typical Wisconsin Democrat” in the headline was memories of the Kyle Rittenhouse case: Kid shows up in Kenosha with his AR-15 to help prevent more looting after two nights of riots. Things go bad when Rittenhouse is attacked by Joseph “JoJo” Rosenbaum, a convicted child rapist who spent more than a decade in Arizona prisons and had just been released from a psychiatric ward that very day. After shooting Rosenbaum in self-defense, Rittenhouse tries to flee the angry mob of #Antifa rioters, but is forced to defend himself again when he is attacked by two other rioters, Anthony Huber and Gaige Grosskreutz:

It was, of course, Andy Ngo who first reported Rosenbaum’s sex offender status, and Ngo further reported that both of the other two rioters shot by Kyle Rittenhouse also had criminal records. Anthony Huber, 26, who attacked Rittenhouse with a skateboard and was fatally shot, “has a criminal history that includes charges of battery & repeat domestic abuse,” Ngo reported. Gaige Grosskreutz, 26, who was seen on video pointing a pistol at Rittenhouse before being wounded in the arm, is “a member of the People’s Revolution Movement,” Ngo reported, and “has a criminal record that includes being intoxicated & armed w/a gun.”
Now, let’s ask what should be an obvious question: What are the odds that a guy opens fire at a mass gathering and all three of the people he shoots turn out to have criminal records? Doesn’t this tell you something about who is engaging in these “mostly peaceful” protests?

Do you see now what led me to describe Clayton William “Sofie” Solberg as a “typical Wisconsin Democrat”? Then there’s this:

Clayton/“Sofie” posted that meme to his/“her” Instagram account with the hashtag #punchwhitewomen, a perfect summary of the typical Wisconsin Democrat mentality: Whoever you are and whatever your problems may be, you can feel better about yourself by demonstrating how much you hate Donald Trump, because hating Donald Trump is the only “virtue” that matters, if you’re a Wisconsin Democrat.

Just a little bit more info on Clayton/“Sofie”:

Solberg had a lengthy and prolific social media presence which went dark just days before his arrest in December.
On Reddit, he went by the name Sofie Fordo, which was the same handle associated with the Dropbox where child sexual abuse material was found. That name has since been registered into the court system as one of his aliases.
Calling himself “Slutty Step Sister,” Solberg primarily posted memes to various Reddit communities, including ones dedicated to LGBT issues, transgender gamers, and self-identified lesbians. One of his most frequented boards required all users to align with the ideology of anti-fascism, “All Cops Are Bastards,” and Black Lives Matter.
Solberg also posted multiple lewd photos of his micropenis and male breast tissue to various pornographic communities, including r/dykesgonewild, r/FtMsex, r/FtMsPunished, r/SmallPenisHumiliation, and r/19_sex.

Joe Biden won Wisconsin by a margin of about 20,000 votes. Perhaps not all of those Biden voters were posting to “small penis humiliation” forums, but we know at least one of them was, don’t we?
