I want my country back
The Swedish Free Press Society ^ | July 9, 2012 | Ingrid Carlqvist

I want my country back

Ladies and gentlemen. My name is Ingrid Carlqvist and I was born in Sweden in 1960, when the Social Democrats were gonna rule forever and ever and our country was the nicest and safest and most progressed in the world. Now I live in Absurdistan – a country that has the highest figure of reported rapes in the world, hundreds of so called “exclusion areas” where people live outside the Swedish society and with newspapers that hide all these horrible facts to the people.

I feel just like Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz – a tornado came and blew me miles and miles away from home and dumped me in a country I don’t know.

“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Sweden anymore.”

Like Dorothy I’m searching for a way to find my home, but on my path I only meet lions without courage, scarecrows without brains and tin men without hearts.

When I grew up our prime minister was Tage Erlander, a Social Democrat. In 1965 he said in parliament, after violent race riots in America:

“We Swedes live in a so infinitely happier situation. The population in our country is homogeneous, not just according to race but also in many other aspects.”

Now I live in a nation that is not homogenous in any respect. Olof Palme that came after him decided that homogeneous was a bad thing and opened up our borders for people from all over the world. And from right to left the politicians told us that there was no such thing as a Swedish culture, no Swedish traditions worth mentioning and that we Swedes should be grateful that so many people with REAL culture and REAL traditions came to us.

Mona Sahlin, a later leader of the Social Democrats, said in an interview 2002 with the magazine Euroturk, when asked what Swedish culture is:

”I’ve often had that question, but I can’t think of what Swedish culture is. I think that is what makes us Swedes so envious of immigrants. You have a culture, an identity, something that ties you together. What do we have? We have Midsummer’s Eve and such corny things.”

She also said: The Swedes must integrate into the new Sweden. The old Sweden is not coming back.

In this New Sweden we have more reported rapes than any other country in the European Union, according to a study by professor Liz Kelly from England. More than 5 000 rapes or attempted rapes were reported in 2008 (last year it was more than 6 000). In 2010 another study reported that just one country in the world has more rapes than Sweden, and that is Lesotho in South Africa. For every 100 000 inhabitants Lesotho has 92 reported rapes, Sweden has 53, The United States 29, Norway 20 and Denmark 7.

In 1990 the authorities counted to 3 exclusion areas in Sweden, suburbs where mostly immigrants live, where very few have a job to go to, almost all of them live by welfare and the children don’t pass their exams. In 2002 they counted to 128 exclusion areas. In 2006 we had 156 and then they stopped counting. In some cities, like Malmö where I live, a third of all inhabitants live in an exclusion area.

What did Tage Erlander mean when he said that the Swedish population was homogeneous, not just according to race but also in many other aspects? I think he meant things like norms, values, culture and traditions. A feeling of fellowship. That we all, in the Old Sweden, had a similar view of what a good society is and how we solve conflicts. He KNEW what the Swedish culture was all about, in contrast to Mona Sahlin.

In the New Sweden we need armed police officers at our hospitals because rivalling families fight each other in the hospital rooms. They gun each other down in open streets and they rob and beat old people up. The crime rate grows by the minute, but the Swedish politicians and journalists tell us that is has absolutely nothing to do with immigration. The fact that our prisons are full of foreign people is just a coincidence or is explained by socio-economic factors.

For many years I was a journalist in the mainstream media. But I was always a bit of a troublemaker, always suspicious of what people said was THE TRUTH. When everybody ran in one direction, I turned around in the other direction to see what was there.

In January 2011 something happened to make me loose my last hope about Swedish journalists. I was the vice chairman of The Society of Publicists in Malmö and had invited the Danish journalist Mikael Jalving to talk about his coming book “Absolute Sweden – a Journey in the Country of Silence”. One day the chairman phoned me and said: We must cancel Mikael Jalving because he is going to talk at a meeting arranged by a newspaper called National Today.

It didn’t matter to him, or to anyone else on the board of this society for journalists that Jalving was going to talk about his book. If he went to that meeting he would be infected by nationalist ideas and probably he would become a Nazi.

You see, everyone with a different opinion in Sweden really IS a Nazi!

That’s the way it works in the New Sweden, the country I call Absurdistan. The country of silence.

I was furious and left the board of that society. That led to my being invited to The Danish Free Press Society to talk about the strange country of Sweden and that led to my founding of The Swedish Free Press Society.

That is how Lars Hedegaard and I found each other. But we didn’t settle for running one Free Press Society each, since we both have a solid background as journalists we decided to start a newspaper. A good old, old-fashioned printed newspaper. We decided to call it Dispatch International because our vision is that this newspaper will become worldwide one day. But first we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin. Or rather – first we take Scandinavia and then we take the world!

Dispatch will be printed in two versions – one Danish and one Swedish – but all the stories are the same. And on the internet you will be able to read our stories in English and German as well. We will write about politics in our countries and in the world. We will write about all those things that mainstream media have been hiding for so many years now. We will distinguish between news stories and commentaries and the tone will be subdued. We will let the facts talk, the facts that mainstream journalists hide from people.

The situation in Sweden is far worse than in Denmark. In Sweden NOBODY talks about immigration problems, the death of the multiculti project or the Islamisation/Arabisation of Europe. If you do, you will immediately be called a racist, an Islamophobe or a Nazi. That is what I have been called since I founded the Free Press Society in Sweden. My name has been dragged through the dirt in big newspapers like Sydsvenskan, Svenska Dagbladet and even my own union paper, The Journalist.

So now I need you all to be my Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, and help me find my home again! I don’t think it will work to tap the heels of my ruby slippers together three times as Dorothy did to wake up in her bedroom in Kansas. But if you support Dispatch by taking a subscription or become a shareholder or just donate money to us, you will take me one step closer to home. To the Sweden that once was, the Sweden I want back.

I don't know what it will take to wake people up to this dual threat of Islamism and Socialism.

The Democrats have gotten in bed with the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD! They are having Islamists speakers and their convention, and the response is simply "Meh"

Just replace "Sweden" with "U.S.A." in a few years and it will all still fit.

The irony is that the Nazis and the Muslims were ALLIES, shared many of the same goals and fought together in WWII.

In fact - there were 2 Waffen SS Division that were entirely muslim.

If you do, you will immediately be called a racist, an Islamophobe or a Nazi.

I remember those days and the crowing from Europe (especially England) about how racist America is far, far inferior to them. America should follow their examples of how people should live in mutual respect of each other -- now I am afraid that we are about to follow their examples!

That this woman is brave enough to face the ravening wolves of idiocy says more for her character and morality than anything else I can think of.

She rocks!

RE: Following Europe

We're almost there vis-a-vis Marxist-Alinsky multiculturalism -- at least the internationalist Republicans are more practical.. cheap, servile workers.

The Demobrat Party kidnapped the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party!

I like to quote something from Lincoln.. updated to address these aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus psycho spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue.

We initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. We now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

Common to socialist Sweden and liberal USA is the disdain and vilification of nationalism.

Yet nationalist political behavior is the most fundamental human right. Unfortunately, our "freedom of assembly" suggests a freedom of political demonstrations, when the treatment of that clause must be much broader.

“Nazi” is simply a meaningless swear word that the left applies to anyone they don’t like.

Of course, Nazi Germany made political and military deals with many nations and races, like any country would. Neither of this should have any bearing in discussing modern cultural and migration policies. But we are not governed by rational people.

She does not advocate racism. Loss of a cultural identity — Swedish, English, Arab, Creole, Mexican — is a loss to any race. The Arabs that flock to Sweden lose their identity as well, and that is also a bad thing, — something often lamented in Islamic circles.

Nationalists need female leadership. It is in the nature of a mother to care in a special way about the country her children will grow. A man, by nature is a traveler; to him these things are less acute.

What is the definition of “exclusion areas”?

I’m seeing things about the EU on a search but nothing concrete...is this connected to Agenda21 at all? Can someone link me to info on these ‘exclusion areas’ - Thanks

The best way to keep a culture alive is for the country to have secure borders, a domestic cultural policy that supports the dominant culture over guest cultures, and cultural assimilation requirement for immigrants.

Otherwise, it becomes not a culture but a museum piece.

I don’t know. A legislated ghetto, sounds like. Perhaps you should search in Swedish.

A ghetto is, of course a rational solution to an unassimilated mass of migrants; the real problem is before that mass arrives.

"exclusion areas".

In France they are called "banlieus". It's where they have most of the car-B-Qs.

Generally speaking, they are areas exclusively occupied by members of a particular ethnic group (frequently immigrants), and inside which the government of the host/surrounding country is essentially powerless; the police enter only when heavily armed and reinforced.

So are these places where inhabitants also do not receive 'host country' benefits or is it just a nice way to say 'ghetto'? I was reading about 'exclusions' on EU taxation -do you know if that is part of it too?

Trying to figure out the 'perks' of the classification, the country is designating them - I wonder what they get and don't get compared to the rest of the country.

They do get host-country benefits.

I strongly suspect that anyone who suggests ending that is called a “right-wing Nazi”.

You’re right, it’s essentially a polite way of saying “ghetto” or “’hood” or “bario”.

“. . . the utopia of multiculturalism involves a bureaucratic class presiding over a nation divided into a variety of ethnic nationalities. That, of course, looks awfully like the old Soviet Union. Such a system cannot work, and its failure is likely to inflict great damage on the people, their traditions, and their liberties.”

— Lady Margaret Thatcher, former British prime minister, writing on “Resisting the Utopian Impulse” in the spring issue of American Outlook

One of the points of the article is that “newspapers [...] hide all these horrible facts to the people”. It is no incident that we know nothing of “exclusion zones”.

Of course, it matters very little whether the conditions in them and the benefits that accrue to the inhabitants are good or bad. The whole thing is, broadly speaking, voluntary. What we have here is an act of collective vandalism perpetrated by the democratic leadership of the country. The greatest national asset: the national culture, — is destroyed and nothing can be done about it under the existing social democracy legislation because a culture has, legally, no owner.

The only question is whether the social democratic regimes will be wiped off by the Swedish people, provided they still can find enough worth salvaging, or by some other people or peoples.

My only objection is to the terminology:

a nation divided into a variety of ethnic nationalities

... is an awkward saying. What we have here is the leading nation, e.g. the Swedes, or in the case of the Soviet Union, the Russians, not governing, and often prohibited from governing neither itself or other peoples, and instead a democratically elected counter-national elite governs with its chief objective to destroy national life and replace it with some kind of Internationale -- communist or otherwise.

As the example of EU shows, channeling an inflow of culturally incompatible migrants provides for an effective way to prevent a nation from governing.

I took some time this afternoon looking around for the description of Swedish Exclusion Zones and came up with 'not much' I wonder what the official Swedish phrase is and if that's the translation...(if there is even an official phrase)
The French Suburbs connections are there - wondering what the Swedish phrase equivalent is.
Someone in Sweden should translate what they are going through and get that phrase in the English language lexicon - hopefully she will be able to do that....(at least throw a wiki page up)

I don’t necessarily see it that way, but then, I didn’t grow up in a country that was ravaged by world wars. Had I been, I’m sure I would have reached the point she reached a long time ago.

Men are warriors, women are nurturers. It doesn’t necessarily mean they can’t change feelings or roles. It just means they are better adapted for what they were designed to do.

I think the appropriate translation is ghetto.

Europeans do not like the word.

But it is the truthful American English translation for what is described.

Yes, that is what I mean. A man would, in his subconscious, look for another country to conquer whereas a woman would work to fix the one she's got. She is more likely to see her country as a home rather than a project.

I’m sorry. I don’t usually resort to Wiki for my arguments, but when I thought of “ghetto,” I realized that my information was most likely not correct. Actually, it was about 75% correct. Still, I’d rather keep my mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt!

Well, no. In recent history we have Prime Minister Thatcher winning wars for Britain, Prime Minister Merkel trying to hold the European project together, dumb idea as it is; we had women arguing with popes as St. Catherine of Siena, leading armies as St. Joan of Arc, or leading Russia through difficult times as Ekaterina the Great. Women are certainly capable of leadership; my point is that nationalism seems in its core a good project for a woman.

I will talk to my wife about it.

Yes, but for these Swedes, there's much they can do now that it's done, except salvage and retain as much as possible.

And I suggest one avenue is by making sure their children learn so they can, in turn, teach Swedish culture to their children. Keeping it alive - individually and together.

Yes. One individual in particular, His Majesty Carl XVI Gustaf, is one whose duty is to lead his people out of it. Whether he is up to it, I don’t know; most modern royalty have much to be desired in the leadership department.
