Sweden's Largest Newspaper Demands "Ban Men In Cars To Stop Terror"

Tyler Durden's picture

It was just a matter of time before we were forced to write this ridiculous post.  You knew it was coming, we knew it was coming...and now the day has finally arrived that some extreme leftist has called for the banning of automobiles as a means of preventing terrorist attacks...you know, because the person driving the vehicles couldn't possibly be to blame.  

And while you may think such logic would be reserved for the kookiest of liberal activists living in an isolated commune some 100 miles from any established commercial interests, it actually came from a reputable columnist, Eva Franchell, writing for a large Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet.

Per a translation from Breitbart London, Franchell's opinion piece referred to automobiles as "effective murder machines" that must be banned at once if our world leaders are truly committed to the cause of fighting terrorism.

Instead, it is cars — which she calls “effective murder machines” — that Franchell says “must simply be removed from city centres and places where people gather, if people are to be protected in future”.


Vehicles are “easy to steal, and so nothing has been able to stop their advance”, writes Ms. Franchell.


“It just isn’t reasonable that a big truck can be driven right into one of Stockholm’s busiest streets on a Friday afternoon right before Easter.”

Yup, not reasonable at all that a motorist would be permitted to utilize a road...outrageous when you really think about it.



Moreover, proving that she gave this some thought, which is actually far worse than if it were some irrational, kneejerk reaction to a horrible crime, Franchell goes on to explain that "mobility" issues could be solved purely with public transportation and that deliveries could just be made when "people aren't out on the streets."

Noting how it is a popular destination for tourists, Franchell says the city centre must be a “safe environment” for visitors to enjoy. She described it as “remarkable” that it is possible to drive around the Swedish capital’s medieval old town.


Outlining her vision for a car-free Stockholm, she argues: “Most problems with regards to mobility and public transport can be solved, and deliveries to shops and restaurants could take place at times when people aren’t out on the streets.”


“Vehicles have been allowed to dominate our cities for decades and it’s the people who need space. It’s vital now that cars be regulated,” the piece concludes.

Meanwhile, Karolina Skog went so far as to adapt the car ban to other popular liberal narratives by suggesting that there existence is really an issue of gender discrimination...

“Cars are driven largely by men so by giving a lot of space to cars; we’re giving a lot of space to men — at the expense of women,” Karolina Skog explained.

What more is there to say really?  We could point out that the logical conclusion of Franchell's proposal would be the ban of almost everything that could be used as a weapon, from rocks to computer monitors, but we kind of need our monitors.

Can Sweden just shrivel up already and disappear? The only thing these cucks have given humanity is the term Stockholm Syndrome which can now be aptly called Sweden Syndrome as the entire nation of whining losers makes a mockery of itself before the world. It has gone full retard as the ex nation succumbs to the ISlam virus and crawls into the fetal position ready to be beheaded by its hairy goat takfiri wahhabi parasite and then doused with gasoline and burned.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

Holy shit, I've been making the "ban these high capacity assault vehicles" argument for years to the anti gunners but I never thought I'd see the day when someone honestly believes such a thing!

effendi's picture

Banning cars and trucks isn't enough though. Public transport also needs to be banned as there are frequent reports in the news about mentally unstable people stealing busses from the bus depot and joyriding them. Nothing to stop anyone hijacking a bus and running it into the crowd. Also nothing to stop anyone hijacking a train and intentionally derailing it into a busy street. 

thisandthat's picture

No, they should ban people to protect people!

It's obvious from this "piece" Swedes are their worst enemy, so only if they ban themselves from their own country and others, they'd effectively be protected...

Bonus: we'd also be safe from their utter stupidity.

Getaway in Stockholm video series have been street racer video fodder globally for like 20 years lol.  Based on what you see in those videos (my favorite is still the first one, Ford Cosworth and Toyota Supra) I doubt that Swedish peeps are turning over their cars to anyone.

As an aside, if anyone does look up and watch this video series, check how many times the cars blow by massed police vehicles in pathetic 'pursuit' at night on empty Stockholm streets with obvious inability to stop the race....

Ban Marxists - and Muslims.

Problem. Solved.

HopefulCynical's picture

Also note how a problem created by the Marxist left - Islamic mayhem - is supposed to be stopped by giving the left something else it wants: the outlawing of motor vehicles.

These fuckers NEVER stop. They will have to BE stopped somehow.

Well there was that German airline pilot who crashed on purpose and the 9-11 attacks , let's ban airplanes while we are at it.

We certainly need to ban automatic cars. But if there are manuals (as there are in most of Europe) many women wouldn't be able to drive them anywhere. Oh shit. Now we need automatics so that women can drive. But we banned automatics. When will it all end?

Probably in people cowering in fear while the statists take over. 

Can we just ban Muslim extremists already?

“Cars are driven largely by men...."


Makes me wonder when will the argument be made that "most violence is perpetrated by men" so we need to ban them.

PS  Sorry for the bold.  The cut and pasted part was in bold and wouldn't un-bold for some reason.  I even pasted it into word, unbolded the post, which showed normal, and then pasted the whole thing into the block, still showing normal font.  Upon viewing, I see it had its own agenda...  (sigh)

thisandthat's picture

But it was such an well-meaning, inclusive bold... I'll allow it (I may flip-flop on it tomorrow, though).

What a Dumbass. It's so SIMPLE. Just build all the factories that make all the things sold in the city center right next to the place. Very urban, fewer trucks near shoppers, create a thousand trains t haul in raw materials and such. Not any crazier than this looney tune.

Ok women can you please get some IQ points?

Seriously women's influence in politics really needs to be pared back.  Seems as if the really stupid ones opinions are what get published.

Read about how the EU and globalist "foundations" are financing vessels to illegaly transport tens of thousands of North Africans to Italy with the goal to replace the annoying nationalistic EU population with a mix of cultures and races with them (not you, silly) as the Alpha and Omega.


vollderlerby's picture

You mention globalist foundations.  Globalism is a brilliant scheme to revoke our right to vote.  We vote for a federal government, state governments, etc.  But if those federal government pass on their powers to unelected entities, we can shove those ballots up our ass. Those unelected entitites are a function of political parties, family ties (dynasty much?), and membership in various clubs and as Carlin told us 20 years ago "it's a big club and you ain't in it".  


Supernational entities = your vote no longer counts.  Brilliant, unfortunately

Captain Chlamydia's picture

So. No discussion,  no facts,  just name calling. 

Male, university, two post doc educ, fluent in three languages and able to speak three more at a basic level, and I read more books than all the papers you wiped your ass with, probably. 

But now I'm at your level. I do not mind a hefty discussion, but just stating something is not convincing. So either explain your statements or I know Who the Idiot is.

Yes, I'm familiar with the Kalergi "plan" but what the fuck has that got to do with some female swedish journalist writing about "dangerous men in cars"?

A better idea is to deport as many immigrants that they can under terrorism laws.  The only reason they attack police and they have no go zones is because the immigrants now know that they can do whatever they want and no repercussions especially being thrown out  of the country.  Let them try doing that in the US, they know damn well they would be locked up and even deported.

EhKnowKneeMass's picture

I agree with this revolutionary idea. A better idea would be to ban the wheels. This will eliminate almost all forms of transportations and force everybody to walk. And a person who is walking have to focus on walking; hence, they cannot harm, hurt or kill anyone. And if walking becomes too dangerous, they should ban walking, too, and force everybody to crawl. This will result in peace on earth, and everybody can live happily every after.

SoDamnMad's picture

Yes, just walk around until you starve. (And run out of all the other things delivered by truck).

I am so surprised that they didn't suggest 'eliminate beer" since it was a beer truck that plowed into the people. Then perhaps Swedish men might revolt and actually DO something.

The irony is that the entire country is now suffering from Stockholm syndrome.

Ghordius's picture

bah. what were 15 minutes of fame, 20 years ago, have become 15 seconds of fame in the age of the internet

and so we witness packages of 15 seconds of silly remarks being trashed out as if they were... relevant

way more ironic is that recently, Breitbart was publishing a completely fabricated story on the Swedish postal service not delivering to "no go zones" (I know, ZH republished it, too, but there is a slight difference here which I find important)

even more ironic: Breitbart wanted to have several european outlets. funnily, they found out that their franchise would not work, here. particularly in France! all because their potential core audience already have their own websites, and those are not that easily duped with stories where some countries (cough, cough the US and Israel cough, cough) come out completely blameless and as heroes just temporarily under the misguided control of some bad politicians, or whatever

but Breitbart did find one european country where they thought they would flourish: the UK

lo and behold, witness "Breitbart London"

Gordho strikes again. Because if Breitbart is wrong, he doesn't care having to lube up for rapey jihadist... As long as he can find someone wrong on the right, everything is unicorn, puppies and rainbows.
