Stockholm is no longer a small Viking village!
09/19/2009 | WesternCulture

Posted on 09/19/2009 11:11:58 AM PDT by WesternCulture

I live in Gothenburg, the eternal "second" town of Sweden.

But today, it's hats off to big brother!

Stockholm is expensive, but marvelous and has recently become home to two million inhabitants.

Like it or not Denmark, Stockholm is THE capital of Scandinavia.

Varsegod, smörgåsbord;

I guess Muslims have taken over Malmo and Stockholm is next. Maybe the Danes will send some real Vikings over to protect Gothenberg.

“Well, after Duluth.”

- Stockholm is one of the world’s most prosperous cities.

In terms of wealth, Duluth is not even on the map.

This is Stockholm:

I just watched the video. Finally, at 4:27 minutes into a 4:45 length video, it showed some snow and ice.

Now that's what I call smart marketing.

- What I and my Gothenburg work mates could do to anyone of your IQ range you don’t wish to know.

Scandinavia will take over the EU - and that will involve Viking rule over the leading continent on Earth (France and Germany tend to screw up, so why not?)

Just conform and your family and friends won’t get hurt.

I am all for it. Go for it. I think Scandinavians could run the EU a lot better than the current lot.

The Scandinavians know how to fight - it is in the DNA. The Vikings brought terror to the western worlk at the gtime. You have the tools too as in Bofors AK-5 and other weapons.

http://world.guns.ru/assault/as35-e.htm

Time to start using JAS Gripen 39 with some practice on parts of Malmo.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JAS_39_Gripen

The neighboring Finns showed the Soviets in 1939 to 1940 just how tough Nordic people can be. One of the most brutal wars no one ever heard about.

Oh, please. The Swedes don’t even scare their own Muslim residents. Do you think you’re going to scare us?

“Scandinavia will take over the EU - and that will involve Viking rule over the leading continent on Earth (France and Germany tend to screw up, so why not?)”

Are you on crack? Scandinavia can’t even deal with its own Muslim population and that’s TINY, and you think you’re going to tell the Germans and French what to do? You’ve got to be kidding.

“Just conform and your family and friends won’t get hurt.”

snicker...snicker...snicker

Just convert to Islam, force your women to wear veils, and completely cave on defending your culture...and you’ll be two steps further than you are now.

“Stockholm is a childless, futureless socialist hellhole.”

- Somewhat true, but mostly silly.

When I was a young son of 5, I was instructed to “hate” both Copenhagen and Stockholm.

Today, I feel proud of being part of Gothenburg regardless of what huligans say and do.

LOL! I once had a 6 feet tall blond Norwegian-American neighbor female who was pretty hot. She liked her beer. She also gave me the impression she would not take any garbage. The risk reward seemed a bit too high for me.

I walked through the streets of Gothenberg over a decade ago. The thing about Sweden is you walk down the street and you try not to stare at all the gorgeous women.

Prague is supposedly like that and to some extent...I better not say this...Copenhagen. ;-)

I never got to Stockholm.

No, now it is a Muslim village where women are advised to wear headscarves if they don’t want to be raped.

Who cares what the Russians would argue about when it comes to cars? What has that got to do with anything?

Prove me wrong.”

Okay: http://www.truthtube.tv/play.php?vid=481

Your country is so “better run” that it will soon cease to exist. Good job. Unless your people free themselves from the socialists who have enslaved you, your next masters will be Muslim. That gilded welfare cage you all live in, will not keep your wife from being gang raped:

and the first Muslim ruler of Sweden won’t have to pretend to NOT be a Muslim either.

I made love to a girl for the first time in my life in that part of the city.

No. I think mainly the city center. There was a very fancy department store with lots of glass and chrome. It is a nice town.

I saw a lot of drunk and gorgeous Swedish girls on the Helisingborg/Helisgnor ferry at night. The beer supposedly is cheaper in Denmark and the kids take the ferry to Denmark to drink.

A Swedish attack on Russia would not involve rapes and pillage.

We are not like the the troops of Nazi Germany.

A lot of Russians look up to Sweden and this is a major problem from a Russian perspective.

Maybe Russia and Sweden will one day become close friends.

Nevertheless, Sweden will come back at you.

Beating you in hockey rinks means nothing.

What attack on Russia? You are not making sense. The Swedes would lose anyway.

“We are not like the the troops of Nazi Germany.”

Who claimed you were? You are babbling nonsensically.

“A lot of Russians look up to Sweden and this is a major problem from a Russian perspective.”

Who cares? What you and I are talking about has nothing to do with Russia. I have no idea why you keep go on and on about these Russian fantasies.

“Maybe Russia and Sweden will one day become close friends.”

Who cares? That has nothing to do with what we were talking about.

“Nevertheless, Sweden will come back at you.”

Another fantasy. Sweden will soon cease to exist. And who on earth would be afraid of the Swedes anyway? Seriously.

“Beating you in hockey rinks means nothing.”

Exactly. You can win a sporting event, but you are losing your country to Muslims and would easily lose a war to Russia if you attack them.

Get real.

- Who cares as long as we Swedes drive around in Volvo V70s (I own one - and I am poor by Swedish standards!) and my “tiny” Nordic country participates in the WOT?

Sweden is not letting the US down in the struggle for freedom.

France does not.

Germany does not.

Britain does not.

Denmark, Spain, Italy do not.

United we stand!

The idea of Freedom is not alone!

Like it or not Denmark, Stockholm is THE capital of Scandinavia.

There's some discussion of Danish-Swedish rivalry in "Who is Kurt Wallander" the documentary that's an extra in Kenneth Branagh's Wallander DVD.

One of the author's Swedish friends says that Danes think Swedes are hypocrites, people who like to strike superior moral poses that don't accord with their real feelings and that Danes are more honest and practical.

The fellow who said that disagreed violently with the observation. As he was Swedish himself it was only natural. But after seeing the documentary it's not hard to understand why so many people formed that impression about Sweden.

One has to be rational in order to be convinced. Therein may lie your problem.

“It is Russia that presently is falling to pieces.”

Who cares? What does Russia have to do with this? You keep bringing up Russia as if that has something to do with Sweden.

“Russians can’t do anything right.”

Again, who cares? What’s that got to do with anything?

“Inferiority, confusion and alcoholism.”

Sounds like Sweden....right before the Muslim take over especially.

“Sweden once took Moscow.”

And gee, how did that work out for you? Didn’t you lose it and then you lost Finland forever? So, who really won? Sweden’s glory days ended more than 200 years ago. Now all Sweden will ever be known for is welfare, women, and some nice machines.

“Good luck on trying to conquer our capital.”

Why would I want it? That would just mean more Muslims. I’ll just sit back and watch the Muslims take over Sweden.

I think you missed Grut’s joke. Duluth is a city in Minnesota, which is known for its Scandinavian influence. Apparently it was settled heavily by Swedes and other nordic types back in the day (my paternal grandmother’s ancestral line goes through Minnesota and then back to Finland). Nowadays it’s still heavily Lutheran and the people have a pronounced stoical streak. Even the left-of-center politics can be traced to Scandinavian roots.
