Sweden’s decaying democracy

A journalist is arrested and dragged out of the Gothenburg Book Fair because he politely asked a powerful politician... the wrong questions about his support for the ethnically-cleansed Zimbabwean dictatorship. Not only journalists, but academics and bloggers are being hounded by the leftist establishment daily. And the leftists have all the nasty instruments of the state at their disposal. Citizen reporter Fabian Fjälling looks into their excesses.

    The Swedish regime and its media have always promoted the idea that Sweden is the role model for freedom and democracy. The Swedish people have slowly and subtly been manipulated into a position where the Swedes themselves act like Pavlovian dogs who start barking as soon as their master plays the racist or Nazi card. In fact, the regime never needed to pass their many laws on what kind of speech is permissible or not, and which political parties should be taking part in Sweden’s so-called democracy.

    Sweden has many laws against alleged hate speech, which are regularly trotted out any time someone dares to stand up for the Swedish people. For the most part however, Swedes have sadly been brainwashed into suppressing free speech themselves. In some mysterious way, the general sentiment has for a long time been that if you – being a Swede – stand up for white indigenous Swedes, you are assumed to want to kill anyone who does not fit that description.

    The situation in the country is almost like a severe form of brainwashing, or Monarch programming, where the master can induce the victim to inflict severe injuries upon him or herself. In Sweden, the programming has been applied to a whole nation.

    A Romanian I have spoken to, compared Sweden to Romania in the fifties. That was a time when such infamous facilities such as the Pieteshti and Gherla torture centers were used to programme a whole generation of intellectuals. This was done in order to create the perfect communist citizen in a communist utopia. My Romanian friend was astonished to learn that the Swedish regime has accomplished what the Romanian Bolshevists had so keenly desired, but without using torture.

    Recently, Swedish alternative media has gained a huge audience, and this is even more surprising since the regime has done all in its power to suppress its advances. Truth is slowly penetrating the bubble in which the nation is being held captive. Swedes are starting to realize that the obsolete mainstream media has been shaping their world view, and that this old media has been far from neutral.

    They have started to understand that there are a number of very important questions which are never asked by the obsolete media. Pervasive still however are the social stigma and informal repression of people who ask questions along the lines of: “Do Swedes exist as a people?”

    Or: “What will the long term effect be on life for the Swedish people if their country is filled with third world immigrants?”

    Or: “Are immigrants from Somalia really a badly needed asset for Sweden, and if so, are they not more needed in Somalia?”

    The social stigma and informal repression that follow when posing such questions, force many alternative journalists and thinkers to publish under pseudonyms. If an alternative media journalist is doxed, there is a very high risk that he or she will get fired. After that no one will employ “the racist” to avoid bad publicity for the company.

    Still, some media outlets have chosen to fight the battle in Sweden head-on. On a shoestring budget, while making intelligent moves, they manage to expose the emperor’s pretence of being clad. The newspaper Nya Tider [New Times] is one example.

    The Gothenburg Book Fair is one of the regime’s major events where the cultural establishment, the mainstream journalists and leftist liberal politicians rub shoulders and pat one another on the back. They commend each other on how open and democratic they are, and on how important it is to protect the long tradition of their own free speech.

    In 2016 and 2017, Nya Tider managed to get a booth in the Gothenburg Book Fair. The indignation was fierce among leftist liberals. Major Swedish newspapers, most of them owned by the Bonnier family, published a long string of articles about the “threat to free speech” that the little dissenting newspaper Nya Tider posed to the other exhibitors on the fair. Their argument was that in the name of free speech, Nya Tider should not be allowed.

    One prominent mainstream celebrity actually showed some spine by tweeting something like: “It’s not like Nya Tider is going to set off an atomic bomb or anything, they are only going to promote their newspaper”. But to the cultural elite, having an alternative opinion in their midst, was clearly like an atomic bomb.

    Many Swedish cultural personalities made statements on how threatened they felt by the presence of Nya Tider, pretending to be victims. And a considerable number of politically correct celebrities boycotted the fair in response to the presence of Nya Tider – all in the name of “free speech”, of course.

    So, by 2018, Nya Tider was banned from the Gothenburg Book Fair, and everything was back to normal for the politically correct crowd.

    Next, the regime called for a meeting with Facebook, Google and YouTube. The Social Democrat Minister of Justice (sic) demanded that the tech giants start censuring content on the Internet. And in case they wanted to refuse, they were told that the government would start passing laws to force them to do so.

    Soon after this meeting, a number of dissident creators on social media platforms were shut down. Of these, my own Granskning Sverige [Investigation Sweden] was one of the more prominent ones.

    Our viewer statistics might not sound so impressive compared to English speaking channels, but one should consider that the population of Sweden and thus our maximum audience is ten million. We had 1,2 million views on Facebook the month before our ban from Facebook. We had 7 million Youtube views on hundreds of interviews with politicians and obsolete media journalists, before our channel was suspended and all uploaded content was erased.

    And our web hosting service provider just sent us a message that they will no longer be providing service anymore. None of the service providers could or would specify which of our publications were hateful, or inciting violence. “Well done!”, tweeted the Minster of Social Insurance, Annika Strandhäll (also a Social Democrat) in response to the ban.

    Sweden’s “problems” had been fixed, or so the regime thought.

    But this year, 2019, with Nya Tider still being denied access to the Gothenburg Book Fair, its reporter nevertheless attended as a normal visitor armed with a “big” camera and audio-recorder. The result was most revealing.

    The Nya Tider journalist managed to find the former top diplomat, Social Democrat Pierre Schori, who has on several occasions openly supported the genocidal Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe. In all his career, Schori had only ever been interviewed by leftist liberals. Being faced with questions from a conservative angle made him completely lose his composure as is evident from the video. At the end, one sees the reporter eventually being arrested by police. His crime was asking questions, as he never once touched the former politician.

    It’s therefore official: Sweden is a police state where journalists are arrested if they ask questions that make the regime look bad. The task of the mainstream media in Sweden is to make Sweden look nice abroad. The functionaries of the regime are to be portrayed as the great beloved leaders, no matter how many people are shot or blown to pieces in the escalating gang violence that the regime has imported.

    For some reason, the arrest of a Swedish journalist doing his job, or the shutting down of Granskning Sverige, has gone completely unnoticed in the same mainstream media which have been campaigning for the African journalist Dawit Isaak for over a decade.

    Pierre Schori, the Social Democrats, was Cabinet Secretary from 1982-1991, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Minister of State 1994-1999 and UN Ambassador 2000-2004. The Swedish Social Democrats also supported Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe, the dictator who cleansed the country of whites and Ndebeles and drove his country into economic ruin. When Mugabe passed away in 2019, Schori added that the African despot had ‘the misfortune to surround himself with bad advisers’.

    Until now, dissenters were silenced by closing down their social media accounts, suspending their web hosting services, denying them bank services or payment solutions, and making a big fuss in the obsolete media about the more prominent dissenters they dox. It seems that Sweden is moving towards a situation where journalists who show the discourtesy of exposing the regime for the criminals they are, might start disappearing at night.

    Just days ago, Associate Professor Dr. Bilyana Martinovsky was arrested at the Swedish border by Stockholm Police when entering Sweden after a vacation trip abroad. She was not told why. Witnesses to the arrest were forced by the police to erase video footage from the arrest. Armed police did an invasive body search, in a manner which would be classified as sexual assault if the attacker had not been wearing a uniform.

    They drove her away to an unknown destination at an unlawfully high speed, refused to allow her a witness or a lawyer at the interrogation, kept her locked in for hours, and took swabs from her mouth to take her DNA and register it. After all this, and more, the police finally told her that she was there because she was suspected of defaming the academic Kajsa Klein on Twitter from September 2017 to March 2018, which caused Kajsa Klein to feel “molested”.

    Earlier, Kajsa Klein had written letters about Dr. Martinovsky to her colleagues and employers at various Universities starting from September 18, 2017 and by doing so, influenced Stockholm University’s leadership to remove Dr. Martinovsky’s research affiliation because of her “discussing politically sensitive issues on Twitter”.

    In response, Dr. Martinovsky in 2017 requested official University correspondence involving her name in order to find out why she was being treated so unfairly. She found out that she was removed due to the very letters sent from Kajsa Klein to the University, the letters in which Klein had slandered Dr. Martinovsky for being a “Nazi, alt-right extremist” and in which Klein reported Dr. Martinovsky to the police in September 2017. The official documents were posted on Twitter and in the media.

    Dr. Martinovsky walked into a police station in early 2018 and demanded to know what she was being reported for. She showed them the documents containing Klein’s letters to her colleagues. The police checked the records and found out that there were no police reports on her at all, which meant that Kajsa Klein had lied to the Associate Professor’s employers and colleagues. This was also reported by the alternative media.

    After the latest episode involving hours of humiliation, violence and mockery by the police, Dr. Martinovsky was released in the middle of the night in a cold Stockholm. She had no warm coat and no cellphone on her.

    Notice also how Dr. Martinovsky was DNA-sampled in the process, against her will. One does wonder how her genetic code might be advancing an investigation into impermissible tweets. A lawyer was not assigned to the case at the time of writing this, despite numerous requests from Dr. Martinovsky.

    The reason why Kajsa Klein conspired to have Dr. Martinovsky fired, is that Klein is one of the leaders in the “democracy” network #Jagärhär [#Iamhere], which is a state sponsored organisation with tentacles reaching into most parts of the official Swedish administration and media. Their aim is to stifle free speech, particularly conservative voices on the Internet. #Jagärhär is one of the main actors currently terrorizing conservatives like Dr. Martinowsky and myself, to have us silenced and in many cases persecuted, as in Dr. Martinowskys case.

    The obsolete media is behind these “democracy” terrorists in the anti-free speech network #Jagärhär. The #Jagärhär modus operandi on the Internet is to organise anonymous mass reports on posts and comments they do not like, in the hope administrators will delete the posts or stop the ongoing discussion. And they often succeed.

    The next step is to call employers in order to have conservatives fired. At the same time, any attempt to fight back against these “democracy” terrorists is labelled “hate” by the obsolete media, and the anti-free speech activists like Kajsa Klein are invited to all kinds of seminars and TV-shows to elaborate on their tales of victimhood they must suffer due to the “exploding hate” in Sweden against them.

    The obsolete media knows that they will be utterly destroyed by any conservative debater, so they will never invite “the haters” to their shows about “hate” in Sweden. Obsolete media will only talk about “the haters”, but never with them. The few times the obsolete media has tried to debate “the haters”, it has blown up in their faces. The tired stereotype of a baby-eating, Nazi hater is rarely swallowed by the audience if they have any degree of common sense or personal integrity.

    I fear that the next step in the development of Swedish “democracy” will be re-education camps and forced labour for dissidents expressing anything that the regime classifies as “hate”. The only feeling allowed in Sweden is “love” the way the regime defines it, especially undying “love” for our beloved leaders.

    Sweden is already a Communist state, but it is heading towards a Communist Utopia fast.

    Swedish military wants to remilitarize the Åland Islands

    The demilitarized autonomy has previously been known as 'the islands of peace.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
