Institutional Stockholm Syndrome

Last week saw prolonged riots in Sweden and a surreal midday beheading in England, while the paid parrots of the Multi Cult spared no effort in blaming everyone but the rioters and the murderers.

Sweden has long been held up by naïve proponents of statist socialism as a blonde, suntanned example of how high taxes and cradle-to-grave welfare are effective. This has always been a simpleminded delusion that ignored the Scandinavian nation’s small population and—until recently—ethnic homogeneity. But now an estimated 15-20% of Sweden’s population consists of foreign-born immigrants, and deep wrinkles are starting to appear in the country’s Big Brother smiley face.

After Swedish police shot dead a Portuguese immigrant who was variously reported to be aggressively wielding either a machete or a knife on May 13, disgruntled immigrants used the incident as an excuse to smash and loot and burn and beat their way through Stockholm and its environs over several nights. Much of the mayhem took place in Stockholm’s Husby district, where an estimated 80-85% of residents are not indigenous Swedes. Automobiles were torched, windows were smashed, and a policeman was beaten while a joyous child filmed it and exclaimed “Allahu Akbar!”

“Last week saw prolonged riots in Sweden and a surreal midday beheading in England, while the paid parrots of the Multi Cult spared no effort in blaming everyone but the rioters and the murderers.”

In the London district of Woolwich last Wednesday afternoon, a pair of English-born black Muslims rammed their car into a white British soldier who was wearing a “Help for Heroes” T-shirt, then proceeded to stab, slash, and behead him with a machete and a meat cleaver. His hands warm with his victim’s blood, murder suspect Michael Adebolajo—who was reportedly born into a Christian family but later converted to Islam—delivered the following soliloquy to a passerby who was filming him:

The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers, and this British soldier is one, is a eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. By Allah, we swear by the Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone….I apologize that women had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your governments. They don’t care about you. Do you think David Cameron is gonna get caught in the street when we start busting our guns? Do you think the politicians are going to die? No it’s going to be the average guy, like you, and your children.

In Sweden, England, and elsewhere, the excuses came quickly and predictably.

Rumors spread like fire through charred Volvos that Swedish police had used slurs such as “rats,” “monkeys,” and “niggers” to taunt and inflame the rioters, although it has been alleged that the latter term may have actually been neger, the Swedish equivalent to “Negro.”

Swedish Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag noted that there was “discrimination in these areas” where the riots occurred. Swedish Justice Minister Beatrice Ask tried explaining that “Social exclusion is a very serious cause of many problems, and we understand that.”

Other pundits blamed white flight and unofficial “segregation,” “marginalization,” “institutional racism,” “disenfranchisement,” “Thatcherite trickle-down economics,” “cuts in state benefits,” and that old standby, “wealth inequality.” Again and again, the paid megaphone-mouths of multiculturalism blamed Sweden’s government and native citizens for “failing” to integrate a largely hostile, pervasively unskilled, and resolutely unassimilable horde of parasitic cultural invaders.

No one seemed to note that Sweden boasts one of the cushiest social safety nets on Earth and that in nearly all cases, the immigrants enjoyed a level of safety and prosperity completely unknown to them in the homelands from which they fled. None dared to point out that whatever wealth they accrued at the expense of indigenous Swedish taxpayers was highly “unequal” compared to the meager existences they’d scratched out in Somalia and Afghanistan.

Although Swedish police adopted a non-intervention policy when dealing with most rioters, it did not stop meter maids from issuing tickets to the owners of cars that had been torched.

Even after being pelted with rocks when he attempted dousing a blaze near Husby, Swedish fireman Mattias Lassen wrote an obsequious note to his assailants on Facebook:

I’m here if your dad needs help if he crashes his car; I’ll help your sister if a fire starts in her kitchen. I’ll swim through icy waters to help your little brother if he falls from a boat. I’ll help your grandmother if she has a heart attack and I’ll even help YOU if you fall through the ice on a sunny day in March.

Commenting on the riots, Swedish-born black rapper Ken Ring, who once spit lyrics about raping Sweden’s Princess Madeleine, said that “Stockholm is a crazy place nowadays….This is Sweden. It is not supposed to be like this.”

I agree. Sweden is not a place where one expects to see several nights of non-indigenous rioting, nor where one expects rappers to rhapsodize about raping the Princess. Nor did it used to be a place where Islamic interlopers allegedly commit the majority of the country’s sexual assaults and joke about how Swedish girls “get fucked to pieces.”

In England, that small, soggy nation that once ruled the world and then decided to feel guilty about it, newspapers seemed less concerned about the ghastly decapitation performed in Allah’s name than in a “backlash” by those dreaded “evil” right-wing racists and extremists formerly referred to as “indigenous Britons.” A compliant press that was largely reticent to refer to the London rioters of 2011 as “mobs” used the same term to describe the English Defence League’s reaction to Wednesday’s public decapitation, accusing the group of being “extremists” who created “ugly scenes.”

Sorry, but it’s hard to think of an uglier scene than that jihadist beheading in broad daylight, but that’s what you’d expect a racist to say, isn’t it?

In an ominous foreshadowing of the sort of legally enforced thoughtcrimes that may soon reach America’s polluted shores, at least 11 UK citizens were arrested for making “anti-religious comments” on social media after the Islamic beheading.

Perhaps most depressingly, a recent poll of British citizens shows they disapprove of British nationalist groups such as the EDL and BNP far more than they disapprove of Muslims.

As illustrated in the Battle of Tours and the Siege of Vienna, there was a time long ago when indigenous Europeans had a spine and would repel Islamic invaders. But as evidenced by recent events, continental Europe and the British Isles have regressed into an invertebrate life form, a pathetic jellyfish that apologizes to its captors as they squash it to death.
