Sweden: "No Apartments, No Jobs, No Shopping Without A Gun"

  • The Swedes see the welfare systems failing them. Swedes have had to get used to the government prioritizing refugees and migrants above native Swedes.

  • "There are no apartments, no jobs, we don't dare go shopping anymore [without a gun], but we're supposed to think everything's great. ... Women and girls are raped by these non-European men, who come here claiming they are unaccompanied children, even though they are grown men. ... You Cabinet Ministers live in your fancy residential neighborhoods, with only Swedish neighbors. It should be obligatory for all politicians to live for at least three months in an area consisting mostly of immigrants... [and] have to use public transport." -- Laila, to the Prime Minister.

  • "Instead of torchlight processions against racism, we need a Prime Minister who speaks out against the violence... Unite everyone. ... Do not make it a racism thing." -- Anders, to the Prime Minister.

  • "In all honesty, I don't even feel they [government ministers] see the problems... There is no one in those meetings who can tell them what real life looks like." – Laila, on the response she received from the government.

The week after the double murder at IKEA in Västerås, where a man from Eritrea who had been denied asylum grabbed some knives and stabbed Carola and Emil Herlin to death, letters and emails poured into the offices of Swedish Prime Minister (PM) Stefan Löfven. Angry, despondent and desperate Swedes have pled with the Social Democratic PM to stop filling the country with criminal migrants from the Third World or, they write, there is a serious risk of hatred running rampant in Sweden. One woman suggested that because the Swedish media will not address these issues, Löfven should start reading foreign newspapers, and wake up to the fact that Sweden is sinking fast.

Carola Herlin, Director of the Moro Backe Health Center, was murdered on August 10, along with her son, in the IKEA store in Västerås, Sweden.

During the last few decades, Swedes have had to get used to the government (left and right wing parties alike) prioritizing refugees and migrants above native Swedes. The high tax level (the average worker pays 42% income tax) was been accepted in the past, because people knew that if they got sick, or when they retired or otherwise needed government aid, they would get it.

Now, Swedes see the welfare system failing them. More and more senior citizens fall into the "indigent" category; close to 800,000 of Sweden's 2.1 million retirees, despite having worked their whole lives, are forced to live on between 4,500 and 5,500 kronor ($545 - $665) a month. Meanwhile, seniors who immigrate to Sweden receive the so-called "elderly support subsidy" -- usually a higher amount -- even though they have never paid any taxes in Sweden.

Worse, in 2013 the government decided that people staying in the country illegally have a right to virtually free health and dental care. So while the destitute Swedish senior citizen must choose between paying 100,000 kronor ($12,000) to get new teeth or living toothless, a person who does not even have the right to stay in Sweden can get his teeth fixed for 50 kronor ($6).

The injustice, the housing shortage, the chaos surrounding refugee housing units and the sharp slide of Swedish students in PISA tests -- all these changes have caused the Swedes to become disillusioned. The last straw was that Prime Minister Löfven had nothing to say about the murders at IKEA.

Gatestone Institute contacted to the Swedish government, to obtain emails sent to the Prime Minister concerning the IKEA murders. According to the "principle of public access to official documents," all Swedes have the right to study public documents kept by authorities -- with no questions asked about one's identity or purpose. The government, however, was clearly less than enthusiastic about sharing the emails: It took a full month of reminders and phone calls before they complied with the request.

What follows are excerpts from emails sent from private citizens to Prime Minister Stefan Löfven:

From Mattias, a social worker and father of four, "a dad who wants my kids to grow up in Sweden the way I had the good fortune of doing, without explosions, hand grenades, car fires, violence, rape and murder at IKEA":

"Hi Stefan. I am a 43-year-old father of four, who is trying to explain to my children, ages 6-16, what is going on in Sweden. I am sad to say that you and your party close your eyes to what is happening in Sweden. All the things that are happening [are] due to the unchecked influx from abroad. You are creating a hidden hatred in Sweden. We are dissatisfied with the way immigration is handled in Sweden, from asylum housing to school issues. And it takes so long to get a job, many people give up before they even get close. Mattias"

Marcus, 21, wrote:

"Hi Stefan, I am one of the people who voted for you. I live in Helsingborg, still with my parents because there are no apartments available. I can see where I live that as soon as an old person moves out, eight foreigners immediately move in: they just bypass us young, Swedish people in line. With all that is going on in Sweden ­-- rapes, robberies, the IKEA murders and so on -- why aren't non-Swedes sent back to their countries when they commit crimes? Of course we should help refugees, but they should be the right kind of refugees. ... I'm sorry to say this, Stefan, but the Sweden Democrats should be allowed to rule for four years and remove the people who do not abide by the laws, and who murder or destroy young women's lives. It is horrible, I have a job that pays poorly because there are no jobs. Sweden has more people than jobs."

Peter wrote:

"Esteemed Prime Minister. I am writing to you because I am very worried about the development in Swedish society. I am met daily by news of shootings, exploding hand grenades/bombs, beatings, rapes and murders. This is our Sweden, the country that, when you and I grew up, was considered one of the safest in the world.


"You, in your role as Prime Minister, have a responsibility to protect everyone in the land, regardless of whether they were born here or not. Unfortunately, I can see that you are not taking your responsibility seriously. I follow the news daily, and despite our now having suffered another act of madness, this time against a mother and son at IKEA, I do not see any commitment from you? ...


"You should emphatically condemn the violent developments we see in this country, allocate resources to the police, customs and district attorneys to slow and fight back (not just build levees and overlook) criminal activity."

Sebastian wrote:

"Hi Stefan! After reading about the horrible deed at IKEA in Västerås, I am now wondering what you are going to do to make me feel safe going to stores and on the streets of Sweden. What changes will there be to make sure this never happens again? Will immigration really continue the same way?"

Benny wrote:

"Hi, I'm wondering, why is the government quiet about such an awful incident? The whole summer has been characterized by extreme violence, shootings, knifings and explosions. The government needs to take vigorous action so we can feel safe."

Laila's subject line reads: "Is it supposed to be like this?"

"Are we supposed to go outside without arming ourselves? Rape after rape occurs and no one is doing anything about it. I was born and raised in Vårby Gård, but seven years ago, we had to move because we couldn't take the dogs out in the evenings due to the non-Europeans driving on the sidewalks. If you didn't move out of the way, they would jump out of the car and hit you. If you called the police, they do nothing -- in a suburb of Stockholm. When my brother told some of these men off, a rocket (the kind you use at New Year's) appeared in his mailbox. You can imagine how loud the blast was. Women and girls are raped by these non-European men, who come here claiming they are unaccompanied children, even though they are grown men....


"It is easy to get weapons today, I wonder if that is what we Swedes need to do, arm ourselves to dare to go shopping. Well, now I am getting to what happened at a major department store: Two people were killed and not just killed, there is talk online of beheading.


"The Prime Minister will not say a word, but resources are allocated to asylum housings, a slap in the face for the relatives who just had two of their kin slain. Swedish newspapers will not say a word, but fortunately, there are foreign newspapers that tell the truth. We Swedes can't change apartments, we live five people in three bedrooms. Two of us are unemployed, looking, looking and looking for work. The only option is employment agencies. I'm 50 years old, on part-time sick leave because of two chronic illnesses, I cannot run around from one place to another. But more and more asylum seekers keep coming in. There are no apartments, no jobs, we don't dare go shopping anymore, but we're supposed to think everything's great.


"Unfortunately, I believe the Prime Minister needs to start reading foreign newspaper to find out that Sweden is going under. I found out that the mass immigration costs billions every year, and the only thing the immigrants do is smoke waterpipes in places like Vårby Gård. This is happening in other places too, of course. Now it's starting to spread; you will see that in the opinion polls, next time they are published. Soon, all Swedes will vote for the Sweden Democrats. They are getting more and more supporters every day.


"You Cabinet Ministers do not live in the exposed areas, you live in your fancy residential neighborhoods, with only Swedish neighbors. It should be obligatory for all politicians to live for at least three months in an area consisting mostly of immigrants, the car should be taken from you so you'd have to use public transport. ... After three months, you would see my point.


"I am scared stiff of what is happening in this country. What will the government do about this?"

Anders wrote:

"Hi Stefan, why don't you, as our Prime Minister, react more against all the violence that is escalating in our country? [Such as] the double murder at IKEA in Västerås. Add to that the bombings and other things happening in Malmö. Instead of torchlight processions against racism, we need a Prime Minister who speaks out against the violence, who says that it's wrong no matter which ethnic group is behind it or at the receiving end of it.


"Because all the people living in Sweden are Swedish, right? A torchlight procession against racism only highlights the fact that it's immigrants committing these crimes. What we need now is a clear signal from our popularly elected [officials] that violence needs to stop now. Sweden is supposed to be a haven away from violence.


"I'm asking you as our Prime Minister, take a stand against the violence. Unite everyone in Sweden into one group and do not make it a racism thing."

Some of the people received a reply from Carl-Johan Friman, of the Government Offices Communications Unit; others have not received any reply at all. A typical response goes:

"Thank you for your email to Prime Minister Stefan Löfven. I've been asked to reply and confirm that your email has reached the Prime Minister's Office and is now available for the Prime Minister and his staff. It is of course not acceptable that people should be exposed to violence and criminal activities in their everyday life. Many efforts are made to counteract violence, and quite correctly, this needs to be done without pitting groups against each other. Thank you for taking the time to write and share your views, they are important in shaping government policies."

Gatestone Institute contacted Laila, one of the people who emailed, and asked her if she was satisfied with the answer she got. Laila replied:

"No, I'm not satisfied with the answer, because they didn't even respond to what I was talking about. In all honesty, I don't even feel they see the problems. They're talking about what it looks like when they have their meetings, but there's no one in those meetings who can tell them what real life looks like. It feels like the answer I got was just a bunch of nonsense.


They understand that people are scared. They talk about demonstrating against racism; they seem to be completely lost. The politicians do not understand how things work in Swedish society, because they live in their safe, snug neighborhoods where things are quiet. But a lot of Swedes are forced to live in immigrant-heavy neighborhoods, because they cannot afford an apartment somewhere else."

The anger at the government's non-reaction to the IKEA-murders also led to a demonstration at Sergels Torg, Stockholm's main public square, on September 15. Hundreds of protesters demanded the government's resignation, and held a minute of silence for the slain mother and son, Carola and Emil Herlin. The organizers plan to hold similar protests every month throughout Sweden.

Self-governance is illegal, and the gubbamin legally governs you to your death.

An uprising is in order, but alas, the people are scared - too scared.

They cannot rebel until they break free from dependent thought, and they cannot break free from dependent thought until they rebel.

So continues the decline, as the men watch their women raped and the lands which their forefathers conquered, shat upon and defiled by vile scum.

"What will the government do about it?", she whines.

Hey lady... your gracious government are the ones who opened your borders in the first place... and they're not going to do a damned thing about it!  You and your brethren need to look within yourselves for that old Viking-fighting spirirt and start liberating yourselves from the predations of your leaders and their immigrant soldiers.

The prime minister is a cuckold faggot, and the people are getting tired of it. The more they fail to enforce the law, the harder the swing to the right will be. If the Swedish Democrats don't get in, or don't act aggressively to address these issues, don't be surprised to see an actual, legitimite Nazi party rise to power four or eight years later. Including literal actual death camps for all non swedes.

It sounds crazy, but he has a point. The more leaders ignore the conditions they are creating on the ground, the worse the backlash against all immigrants, legitimate and otherwise will be. This is a failure to listen which exists because the left and especially the elite left, believe their cause is entirely just.

He does have a point. 

I was talking about myself. World is off the rocker.

Yep... Welcome to the U.S. as well.  Let the rapes continue to ramp up (and not the fake, you violated my Safe Space "rapes").  Thanks Obama and leftists in general who see more government dependent people, and therefore votes, as a higher priority.

SafelyGraze's picture

there is more than enough for swedes and refugees alike.

the only problem is that swedes have been spoiled by their low tax rate.

the rate needs to be boosted to provide services for all.

70% maybe.

or 120%.


Gaius Frakkin&#039; Baltar's picture

There's no such thing as legitimate immigration if it betrays your race. It's a disgrace to your ancestors who conquered the land that you now live. You might as well be pissing on their graves.

tmosley's picture

Stop being stupid. Having a free society induces a huge amount of brain drain from unfree societies. It brings the best and the brightest from around the world. This is good. It enriches everyone except for the freedom hating governments.

Open doors and a welfare system does the opposite, it brings in the scum of the Earth.

Who determines intelligence smarty-pants?

Think it through.

tmosley's picture

Those who think systematically rather than reactionarily are intelligent, and actually find ideal policies that accomplish what is wanted. Ignoring the factors that cause the bad outcomes of current immigration policies makes you stupid.

And I'm not even wearing my smarty pants today.

Gaius Frakkin&#039; Baltar's picture

But if I may be bold enough to try...

Those people seem to be intelligent enough to flee, but not intelligent enough to oppose the situation from whatever “unfree” place they come from.

Perhaps they should have armed themselves, organized themselves, and opposed the forces seeking to oppress them or drive them from their lands, before it got out of hand. That would have been smart.

tmosley's picture

There is a difference between an immigrant and a refugee.

If I lived in England, I would want to immigrate to America, because it is freer and thus richer. I can do better there than I could in England if I work hard. I'm not going to take up arms against the crown, I'm ging to vote with my feet.

If the government you are leaving is hard enough on its people, then not only will all the top performers and thinkers leave, but the middle and even low teir ones will, leaving only the scum, who, of coure have no money and are violent and worthless in general. With no tax revenues, the country collapses. Cause and effect, without a shot being fired.

FrankDrakman's picture

"With no tax revenues, the country collapses"

Oh, that's why Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc. are on the brink of collapse. Tax revenue doesn't always come from income tax, you know.

tmosley's picture

Uhh, they are, actually. I don't know if you've noticed the dozens of articles here about collapsing oil prices and the effects it is having at least on Saudi.

Gaius Frakkin&#039; Baltar's picture

"I'm ging to vote with my feet."

Well, freedom doesn't come about from foot traffic. It comes into existence by force, courage, and shear determination... to name a few qualities. The kind of stuff you may not recognize as intelligence. The kind of stuff that isn't taught in academia or scored on an IQ test. And it also requires organization and cooperation amongst peers of your race (people who act, think, and look like you), not hyper-individualism.

If the situation continues in its current direction, yes, I do believe a potential outcome that merits a probability weighting is the rise of an imperial regime whose agenda focuses on ethnic cleansing.  Scarily, this regime might just know how to use modern technology.

Well said GF "freedom does not come about from foot traffic."


I would encourage anyone interested to read Patrick Henry's entire speech where he wraps up with the "Give me liberty, or give me death" line (March 23, 1775).  Read the whole damn speech and it sounds eerily like today, just the name of the oppressor has been changed.


I would also add, that I bet the average militiamen serving the continental army were neither all that "intelligent" and they damn sure were not very "educated".  But they had "the stuff" you speak of.


Things are bad here in Merika, but if we dont get motivated and get off our asses and act, it will get worse...

Let me understand.

So the refugees are, in general, scum?

This is why you claim that Sweeden (and other countries) should close the gates and let them, in practice, go to hell? (including women and babies)

So what would happen if you were born in Syria and belong yourself to this refugee "scum"? Were your opinisons then the same as the ones you so bravely express in ZH?

@tmosley   Too rhetorical to give a confident reaction.  Oh, and "reactionarily" is not a word.  But, I understand since yer not wearing yer smarty pants today, as you say.  Now, I suggest you go get dressed, stop blathering, eat yer breakfast and get yer dumbass off to school.

This is the price people pay for being stupid, docile, and living on somebody money.

Talking is leading to nowhere. Only when people learn how to use a touch appropriately, only then they will be free and prosperous.

It is funny to see prosperous Swedes becoming poor and abused and no-good Greeks. Incredible, after the Greece socialist PR spitted in their faces they still reelected him. These people have no future.

>>>Stop bombing other people's lands--that will solve a huge part of the problem.

That would certainly help short-term, and would lessen the karma factor in the relationship between the West and the Loser (i.e. Muslim) world.  Still when a poor country, which is already dependent on imported food, has the average woman producing three or four kids, you're going to have an excess population problem whether your government is bombing them or not.

Yes.  That was in reply to GaiusFrakkin.  "There's no such thing as legitimate immigration if it betrays your race. It's a disgrace to your ancestors who conquered the land that you now live. You might as well be pissing on their graves."   ... So we see that every successive conqueror enacts their own conquer, claiming some moral high ground.  You *cannot* make this shit up.  Here in the USA we modeled our fed govt on the Iroquois model, with the first (?) Constitution to codify liberty, then proceeded to perfect a continental ethnic-cleansing and genocide against the native peoples, consigning them to Reservations.  What group largely became the success model for Rev. War fighters?  The Scots Irish of Appalachia.  They are now the most downtrodden in the country but maintain their fierce liberty.  Where are the rest of us now?  We are inmates in the New American Reservation of debt slavery.  And the elites know the demographics, fiscal collapse scenarios (entitlements) and their inflation plan, so desire to offset those with the fraudulent imposition of immigration.  The U.S. citizen is simply a tax-producing unit in calculations, embedded in the sociopathic Matrix run by the Vampire Squid Corporate State. Have a nice day.

Speaking of Native Americans, I live in New Mexico, and from what I have heard...

They are laughing at us, and at Europe. They know it is an invasion, and they know we are powerless to prevent it. All they can do is watch, and laugh, as we are conquered as they once were.

How come all these Muslim shit is not running to Israel?

After all, all our politicians tell us that Israel is the best democracy in the entire world.
