    In 2021, according to the Power Barometer, his account was the most powerful in Swedish on Facebook.

    Lamotte has questioned the country’s news media, including their reporting on the Sweden Democrats and the countryside. His live broadcasts and chronicles have been praised and shared by alt-right media such as the Nordic Alternative Right and Nyheter Idag.

    Between 2016 and 2017, Lamotte gave lectures in schools about sexual harassment.

    In December 2019, Lamotte was robbed of his equipment, beaten and threatened during a Facebook broadcast from the immigrant-dense area Kronogården in Trollhättan, where there had been unrest and attacks on the police.

    On 26 February 2020, Lamotte already attracted attention when he, wearing a bullet-proof vest, participated in Swedish Television’s debate program Sverige möts [Sweden Meets. ed.].
