Sixth Night of Violence in Sweden (Media spin defenders as "far right vigilantes")
http://www.cnbc.com ^ | 25 May 2013 | David Crouch Gothenburg

Posted on 05/25/2013 6:48:45 PM PDT by Lorianne

Rioting spread to several Swedish towns on Friday night as police stepped up arrests during a sixth night of unrest and far-right vigilantes chased non-whites in southern Stockholm.

In Linköping, central southern Sweden, police responded to 120 incidents as cars, caravans and two schools were set alight. At one point a blazing truck was rolled into a building, which caught fire.

"We see the night's events as an offshoot of what has happened in the Stockholm area in recent days," local police told Swedish television.

In Orebro, 120km west of Stockholm, police were stoned after cars and a school were torched. In Uppsalla, north of Stockholm, there was minor violence.

In Stockholm, police made 18 arrests - the largest number since the disturbances broke out last Sunday night in the northern suburb of Husby a week after an elderly immigrant was shot dead by police. The violence appears to have been sparked by young, second-generation immigrants from north Africa and the Middle East angered by racism and social exclusion.

That’s the new thing, to call Islamic fundamentalists “right-wing.” You can see the plan with that.

Not advocating anything, but what would happen if the defenders got proactive and started “rioting” in the mooselimb areas of town? You know, take the fight to them....

The Swedes need to arm themselves — and quickly.

First stop might have to be replacing the Quislings who are currently in power.

so, basically, the people who are tired of the rioters (and standing up for themselves) are the right-wing vigilantes...correct?

They are. They are also being called neo-nazis and hooligans as well. In fact they are native Swedes. Swedish Nationalists who are fighting against the alien invaders that are destroying their homeland.

Well, no question who did that....now all we need is a beheading.

“....angered by racism and social exclusion.”

Oh, boo hoo. They were let in the lily-white place, weren’t they? As if they REALLY wanted to be with the in-crowd blonde jocks and chicks.

I’m seeing that too in media lately, but in this case they are calling the ethnic Swedes defending their property “far right”

The violence appears to have been sparked by young, second-generation immigrants from north Africa and the Middle East angered by racism and social exclusion.

The left will defend abortion. They will defend unbridled state power. They will defend "multiculturalism" right up to the point that it kills them and their families.

Not since 1776 has the Second Amendment been so important to American citizens. Our government wants us disarmed as fervently as it has flooded our country with those who wish us harm.

Okay, sorry. To us perhaps not.

The thing that impresses me is the the Swiss are armed. I believe there is a high level of readiness should any one desire to cross their borders.

Am I wrong with regard to that?

No offense intended. I just find it amusing the way some mix up Sweden and Switzerland, Slovakia and Slovenia, Austria and Australia, etc.

Used to live in New Mexico, and a remarkable number of Americans think it’s a foreign country from the US.

The Muslims in Sweden are there for asylum mainly. I dont know if Its true but I heard they rioted because of lack of employment, housing, and disrespect from the police but knowing how they operate the truth is probably to create and instability in the region to bring authority into question so the can start to redefine their culture and take over the region.

The real rulers of Sweden would call out the military to kill the Swedish people attacking the poor, helpless immigrants.

It’s time for all the Swedes to Viking Up! They’ve now seen what the future holds for there children and grandchildren — and far worse as the Swedes numbers dwindle and the invaders numbers increase. Europeans must reclaim their lands now.

People may feel uneasy about Golden Dawn in Greece, but at least Golden Dawn is looking out for the interests of the Greek people in their native land — and that’s exactly why Golden Dawn is gaining so much support.

I own two Husqvarna shotguns brought from Sweden by an importer who bought them from Swedes who could no longer meet their onerous gun control restrictions.

Now if you want to hunt in Sweden you must belong to a hunt club and check out a gun from the hunt club armory and turn it back in at the end of the day.

Not like Switzerland in the very least.

"And all the time — such is the tragi-comedy of our situation — we continue to clamor for those very qualities we are rendering impossible. You can hardly open a periodical without coming across the statement that what our civilization needs is more “drive”, or dynamism, or self-sacrifice, or “creativity”. In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful."

~C.S. Lewis

Switzerland does not have a standing army, but the people are heavily armed.
********************************************************************
Actually, Switzerland does have a standing army combined with a citizens’ “militia”. For males, military service is “compulsory” and females may volunteer. Upon screening about 2/3rd of young 18 year old Swiss men are found suitable for military service and go onto training. The “unsuitable” usually are required to do some sort of alternative service.

The “militia” are required to keep their military weapons (and ammunition) at home to have it available at a moment's notice. I suspect the number of home invasions in Switzerland is minimal.

My knowledge of this is somewhat dated but I haven't read about significant changes in Switzerland's defense approach in recent years.
