Donald Trump and Nigel Farage Was Right About Sweden

On november 23, the former Ukip leader Nigel Farage said the following about my home country of Sweden:

"[In]the Swedish city of Oskarshamn, joggers going out after night will have the option of being accompanied by armed police officers.

This is something that the local inspector thinks will make people a bit safer at night, going out in a Swedish city.

Who would have believed I would have said that about a Swedish city just five years ago? It is truly incredible.”


Farage also tweeted:

Residents of Oskarshamn in Sweden will now be accompanied by armed police officers while out jogging. How did Europe let this happen?


Farage met a lot of criticism. Peter Karlsson, the police in Oskarshamn who took the initiative replied in Swedish radio:

- [Farage's statement] is horrible. The initiative have nothing to do with immigration.


And James Savage, co-founder of the Newssite The Local tweeted:

As a British journalist who has actually lived in Sweden for 14 years, I'm getting fed up with people like @Nigel_Farage spreading lies about this country to advance their racist agendas.


With the statement, Nigel Farage follows in the footstep of President Trump. In a speech February 18, President Trump made an offhand remark about Sweden. He said:

”We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what's happening in Brussels. You look at what's happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We've allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we're going to keep our country safe.”


The statement met with a lot of criticism in Sweden. Former Prime Minister Carl Bildt tweeted:

”Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking?”

But Trump wasn't talking about a terror attack; he was talking about a new set of problems that very few people would associate with Sweden. The relevant question is – what has Carl Bildt been smoking to avoid seeing the fast, negative changes his country is now going through?

The answer is, that Bildt has been getting high on over consumption of Swedish mainstream media. Swedish journalists lean heavily towards the liberal left, and are marinated in the consensus culture that is so prevalent in Sweden's academic institutions, where you are required to have the right opinions in order to fit in. One way to achieve this is to criticize the Swedish and Western culture – and the United States in particular – but be very open minded towards other cultures. When it comes to the issue of immigration, this means ignoring problems and dismissing those who want to discuss them as racists.

Journalists and politicians can look the other way, because they don't live in the same world as ordinary people. Stockholm, in particular, is characterized by total segregation. Some areas are inhabited exclusively by rich, white ethnic Swedes. This is where most journalists live and work. And then there are the suburbs, where some, like Rinkeby – a part of Stockholm that has gained international notoriety due to recent riots and car fires – are inhabited solely by immigrants. You will be hard put to find any journalist in these areas. Thus, they are unaware of the problems regular people in mixed suburbs and smaller cities experience, in places where things happen closer to home.

To most journalists, a critical view on immigration is just a negative theory and a theoretical, political viewpoint, not an actual observation of people's everyday reality.

This is precisely why they believe the problems don't exist – they themselves have never encountered them. And this legitimizes their fierce attacks on those who try to highlight the problems created by massive immigration from non-Western countries, Muslim countries in particular. A fresh example of this phenomenon is when the Swedish-Czech author Katerina Janouch spoke out recently, and criticized Sweden's migration policies on Czech television. Janouch was chastised by Prime Minister Stefan Löfven himself, who stated that he thought her remarks were "very odd", and a bookstore in Uppsala withdrew all her books. Another example is economist Tino Sanandaji, who recently released his book "Mass Challenge". In the book, Sanandaji criticizes the Swedish open door migration policy, using statistics as a tool. A number of Swedish libraries have declared that they refuse to purchase the book, because it supposedly violates the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

But despite the political and media establishment's attempts to put a lid on the problems, the truth is now seeping out, and reality is reaching a boiling point.

A couple of months ago, I interviewed a Detective Inspector who investigates serious crimes in the immigrant heavy neighborhoods of suburban Stockholm. He noted that while one squad car is enough to secure a "Swedish" suburb of Stockholm almost every day of the week, that would be unthinkable in the immigrant suburbs of Stockholm, where cars are set ablaze every week. In the immigrant suburbs, the police must be prepared for riots, violence and threats, and the risk of police vehicles being vandalized. False alarms are commonplace, the purposes of which are to lure the police into a trap and then pelt them with rocks. A friend of mine who lives in this kind of area has also attested to this happening on a regular basis.

The Detective Inspector also told me that a patriarchal Islamic culture has gained foothold in Rinkeby. Young women cannot go out at night, lest they be branded as whores. Ethnic Swedes – both men and women – run the risk of being brutalized. Further, there is an active "sharia police", Muslim men approach women who they feel dress indecently, and explain to them that they need to cover themselves up. The Detective Inspector had observed such incidents in person, but since it is not a crime for men to approach women and talk to them, the police had been unable to intervene.

The Detective Inspector also told me, that the rescue services – like the fire department and ambulance service – will not go into these suburbs without police escort. He also confirmed what police officer Peter Springare from Örebro has previously stated; when it comes to violent and serious crimes, you rarely see a Swedish name in the investigation papers.

Statistics provided by the Swedish blogger Joakim Patrik Jonasson, who personally read all files of Sweden's convicted sexual criminals between 2012-2017 shows that 84% of violent rapes in Sweden are committed by men from outside Europe.

To mention one example. On January 21, two Afghan immigrants in the city of Uppsala, gang raped an unconscious woman for several hours and lived streamed it on Facebook. One rapist got sentenced to 2,5 years in prison. The other to 1 year in prison.

Besides criminal activities in the suburbs, Sweden also has a problem concerning jihadism and salafism. At least 300 "Swedes" have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic State. And in April we had a tragic terror attack in Stockholm, committed by an immigrant from Uzbekistan. Historically, Sweden has had no experience of jihad or a paradise of virgins.

I have myself met with several salafists. In 2007, I had coffee with a crowd from the Örebro mosque (and briefly met Mehdi Ghezali, the "Swede" that was imprisoned at Gitmo), and I asked them what their view of the then living terrorist leader Usama bin Laden was. Was bin Laden right or wrong to attack the United States? Wrong, they said. However, when asked to motivate why he was wrong, it wasn't the immorality of attacking what we in the West would call innocent civilians that disturbed them. Instead, they purported that bin Laden was wrong because only a caliph can order jihad. And bin Laden was, in their eyes, no caliph. This was the reason his actions were wrong. They also explained that they believed it is right to stone adulterers to death, but that the penalty can only be carried out in an Islamic state. When I asked if they want Sweden to become an Islamic state, they said yes.

Salafists have for a long time flown under the radar in the Swedish "exclusion areas". A heartbreaking example from aforementioned Rinkeby was the imam Fouad Shangole. He came to Sweden in 1994 and worked as an imam in Rinkeby, by all accounts living well off the Swedish welfare system. The Swedish security services had their eye on him, on good grounds. In 2004, he left Sweden and went to Somalia, where he became a leader within the Islamist militia movement Al Shabaab. Four years later, it was reported that a 13-year-old Somali girl, Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow, had been raped. When she reported the crime, a sharia court found that she was to blame. She was sentenced to death and the punishment was carried out by stoning. The judge who sentenced her was none other than the Swedish Rinkeby-imam. Ten years in Sweden doesn't seem to have rubbed off as far as Swedish values are concerned at all.

Time to wrap things up.

The purpose of this text is not to portray Sweden as a land of lawlessness. You do not have to be afraid to visit Sweden. The country still works, thanks to a historic spirit of entrepreneurship and bureaucratic order. However, it is quite possible that Sweden is changing along the lines that American documentary filmmaker Ami Horowtiz described in his report on Sweden. A dark, parallel Sweden has emerged. And things are changing quickly.

The Swedish journalists and elite politicians like Carl Bildt seem unable to understand this. And that is why it is very encouraging for the Swedes who want to defend the Sweden we love, to hear the President of the United States, as well as Nigel Farage, talk about the things we can see with our own eyes, but regarding which we get no response from the elites who are more likely to travel to New York or London, than a Swedish suburb or small city.

It’s time to for the silent majority of the Swedish people to wake up and make Sweden great again. Mainstream media and establishment politicians won’t do it for us.
