    As we continue to deal with terror attacks both at home and abroad, the conversation about how to best protect our citizens continues. Perhaps one approach to this is to take some hints from how other countries are handling the situation. The nation of Sweden recently experienced their own version of such an assault when an ISIS supporter plowed into a Stockholm crowd with a truck. Ever quick with serious solutions to pressing problems, one social commentator over there named Eva Franchell saw an opportunity to set several problems to rights in one fell swoop. I saw this story...
  • The Destruction of the West by Left-wing Globalists

    Ultra-liberal Sweden is becoming a shell of its former self because liberalism has turned this once peaceful country into a chaotic, multicultural cesspool of violence and unrest. Swedes have always taken pride in their open-mindedness, believing their good intentions and big hearts would overcome a collision of cultures when it comes to immigration without assimilation. Swayed by purely emotional thinking, they assumed their kindness and generosity would be reciprocated, believing their sophistication and universal outlook would elevate them above the consequences of what happens when Third World mindsets reside at First World addresses.Now crime is on the rise and Swedish...
  • White Easter: Sweden wakes up to snow and record low temperatures

    Easter Sunday got off to an unusually cold start across Sweden — with three weather records broken as some towns experienced their chilliest April night in decades. Southern Sweden saw unseasonably cold temperatures, with up to 10 cm of snow in northern Skåne, Blekinge, Kronoberg, Halland and Kalmar. In Örebro, the mercury dropped to –14°C, making it the coldest April night since 1944, according to P4 Örebro. In Karlstad, Sweden’s meteorological institute SMHI said temperatures reached –9°C, meaning it was the coldest night of April since 1985. …
  • African Migrants Brutally Rape Swedish Teen, Leave Male Friend with Brain Damage

    Two migrants have been given sentences of three and two-and-a-half years for beating a young Swede almost to death before violently raping his female friend. The government will try to deport only one of them, temporarily. The Freie Zeiten reports that three teenage girls and one male friend met for a party at an apartment in Kista, near Stockholm, citing Solna District Court documents. One of the girls invited a 21-year-old migrant from Liberia, Richelieu Jarara, with whom she was acquainted. This man brought another African migrant, a Kenyan named Fayed Mwangi, with him.

    Two asylum seekers who are on trial for raping a Swedish girl and streaming the ordeal live on Facebook will not face deportation back to their home countries. The asylum seekers directly involved in the rape, aged 18 and 21, will not face deportation after the prosecution withdrew their previous claim. “The prosecutor has taken a wise decision. It is against the Aliens Act, which I pointed out here before,” said lawyer Stefan Wallin who is defending one of the men accused of the rape, 24 Uppsala reports.

    Will last Friday's terror attack in Stockholm change Swedish attitudes toward Islam? Not likely. Pretty much all of Europe has spent the last few decades undergoing (steady) Islamization, but the invasion has progressed so much further in Sweden than in almost every other country on the continent – and has occasioned so much less frank reportage, commentary, and criticism, that brave souls in Sweden's Scandinavian neighbors, Denmark and Norway – routinely make disparaging reference to “Swedish conditions.” What this term refers to is not only the drastic social and economic changes currently underway in the country that once proudly...

    It was just a matter of time before we were forced to write this ridiculous post. You knew it was coming, we knew it was coming...and now the day has finally arrived that some extreme leftist has called for the banning of automobiles as a means of preventing terrorist know, because the person driving the vehicles couldn't possibly be to blame. And while you may think such logic would be reserved for the kookiest of liberal activists living in an isolated commune some 100 miles from any established commercial interests, it actually came from a reputable columnist, Eva Franchell,...

    Last night we noted that, rather than help police arresting a suspect in Friday's horrendous terrorist attack in Stockholm, migrant residents of the suburb of Rinkeby apparently decided instead to pelt the arresting officers with rocks. Of course, the incident was just one more example of the unintended consequences of Sweden's 'open border' policies and a direct contradiction of arguments from senior Swedish officials that would suggest that the influx of migrants hasn't made towns like Rinkeby any less safe. That said, less than 24 hours later, the Swedish postal service has been forced to suspend service to Rinkeby after...

    When anti-terror police searched Stockholm for clues about terror suspect Rakhmat Akilov, they were pelted with stones by hostile gangs of youths. Officers had entered the suburb of Tensta, home to thousands of migrants from Islamic countries and increasingly under the stranglehold of strict fundamentalism. It is where Swedish women say they feel unsafe and, as in other migrant-filled suburbs, street posters showing female images are often torn down by patrolling groups of male Muslims who scrawl the word ‘whore’ over them.

    On Friday, Sweden became the latest European target of terrorism after a man plowed a hijacked beer delivery truck into a crowd in central Stockholm, killing five people and wounding more than a dozen (we covered the situation here: "Swedish Police In Manhunt For Terrorist Truck Driver Who Killed Five"). And while such attacks typically tend to unify populations in the common goal of hunting down, capturing and punishing the responsible assailants, that sense of camaraderie apparently doesn't apply in Sweden's so-called "no-go zones" which have become home to 1,000's of migrants flooding into Europe from Syria and elsewhere in...

    STOCKHOLM — Swedish police said Saturday that they believe they have captured the man accused of turning a beer truck into a weapon a day earlier by driving it into a crowd of pedestrians in a rampage that left four people dead. Authorities did not divulge the man’s name but said he is a 39-year-old from Uzbekistan who had been known to security services as “a marginal character” for the past year. Police said that when they first investigated him, they had found no connections to extremism. Authorities did not say when the man had come to Sweden. The arrest...
