What does “blatte” mean? Exploring Sweden’s ghetto culture

My artist name in English is “Angry Foreigner”. In Swedish it’s “En Arg Blatte Talar” which means An Angry Blatte Speaking. Blatte and foreigner don’t carry the same meaning, and when my channel became international I decided to go with something simple because a lot of people in Sweden didn’t understand the sarcasm/satire of my Swedish artist name. Allow me to explain.

“Blatte” for immigrant is what “nigga” is for black people. Chris Rock explained this perfectly.

Back in the 90’s “blatte” was widely acknowledged as an invective. It’s an insulting term meant to describe immigrants who live up to a bad stereotype; rowdy, noisy and refuse to learn the Swedish language because they think it’s cool to be a “gangsta”. Put simply it’s someone who takes pride in not being integrated.

They call female strangers “Swede-whores” and rob Swedish men because it makes them feel cool, not because they need the money to survive. There’s been a few interviews describing how the reason for their mugging is that they want money for partying and fancy brand clothing. Not for food or housing. In other words, it should be impossible for leftists to defend these materialistic reactionary  shitheads, but they still manage in some way.

Blattar will look at Swedish men and find them pathetic because they are civilized human beings who don’t immediately resort to violence to solve verbal conflicts. Blattar will look at Swedish girls and think that they are cheap whores, because they subscribe to Western morality. In other words: Swedish girls dare to have sex before marriage, wear clothing that shows skin and enjoy sex, so because of  this they have less value and are more or less okay to rape. And no, Im not exaggerating. Read the hyperlinks.

Put simply, “blatte” started out as a slur for immigrants who behave badly. But in recent years it has become diluted, normalized and synonymous with the word “immigrant”. So when I made my very first video in Swedish a lot of people misunderstood what I was saying. They thought I was spewing hatred towards immigrants in general, when in fact I was only speaking ill of the immigrants who insist on being stereotypical self-destructive feces.

And let me be really fucking clear on this: As an immigrant I take offense to this minority of disgusting morons making the majority of us look bad.

Do not for a second underestimate the destruction a single pack of these animals can cause. The identity of the blatte is founded upon personal insecurities combined with an exaggerated feeling of cockyness. Blattar seek out physical altercations to assert their dominance, and you can never tell a blatte he’s done something wrong without him exploding and talking about “yo mamas pussy”.

This creature completely lacks self-distance and feels the entire world owes them something. They will constantly demand respect, simply for their mere existence, while not showing anyone even the most basic respect. This is an example of ordinary daily behavior for a blatte,

Blatte: Eyyy you swedish whore, suck me dick, how much u cost?

Girl: You’re a disgusting idiot.

Blatte: YOU FUCKING RACIST

To call passing female strangers whores, and seek out fights over trivialities like someone looking at you for more than 4 seconds, is an everyday routine for this animal. Blattar is one of the reasons why racism is created, because repeated meetings with these singular individuals easily create hatred and prejudice.

It doesn’t matter that 90% of immigrants are decent human beings who don’t commit any crimes. You’re not going to notice them, because they don’t affect your life. They’re normal people. A pack of blattar however will affect you severely, because it’s in the nature of humans to focus on negative experiences more than positive ones. Thus, just having a few encounters with these animals will contribute to someone becoming racist. Whether they want to or not their brain is going to create negative associations to non-Swedes.

blattarrrrr

Why do these type of people exist?

To summarize, Sweden’s immigration policy is about taking in way more immigrants than you can handle, and sticking them all into segregated housing areas, IE ghettos. Sweden being a humanitarian nation is the biggest scam about this country because our politicians couldn’t give a shit less about immigrants. They actively choose to live as far from immigrants as possible.

The result of Sweden’s irresponsible immigration policy is segregation. In the beginning of the 90’s there were 3 ghettos in all of Sweden. Today there’s approximately 186. When you take a shitload of immigrants and let them live together without the presence of any Swedes two things will happen.

1. There is no integration. You’re growing up in an area where you don’t even need to learn Swedish, because you are not surrounded by Swedes. You are surrounded by your countrymen. And thus you will not adapt, because there is no social incentive to do such.

2. A feeling of isolation is born. And in this social vacuum resentment and suspicion will start growing. This article by two politicians from the People Party says it all. They went to schools in some of these areas where ethnic Swedes make out a minority, and talked to the students there. Allow me to translate a few paragraphs.

-“What’s the worst thing you could be called?”
– “A SWEDE!”
The group of immigrants all screamed at once. The few ethnic Swedish youths in the corner of the room didn’t even take notice. This is their everyday life in the Swedish ghettos: Swede-whore, Swede-fag, peasant, Swede-racist, and fucking Swede. Words they hear on a daily basis. Almost every time it’s the same situation when we visit these ghetto schools in Sweden. Students openly display their contempt for what they consider Swedish.

Many youths in these areas don’t feel any connection to Swedishness, but equate it to being cold-hearted and wussy, something you wanna distance yourself from. There’s also an attitude about how female Swedishness is the same as being a tramp with no morals. If an immigrant girl stands up for her rights and lives as freely as guys she is viewed as “Swedeified” by many, which is considered horrendous.”

Both the political Left and Right in Sweden seems to think that the solution to these problems is building more apartments and giving immigrants jobs that don’t exist yet. But if you build more housing it’s going to be primarily immigrants who move there and then we have yet another exclusion area. None of the political parties (except for the Sweden Democrats) want to admit that integration can only work if immigrants are mixed with Swedes, and in order for that to happen you can’t maintain high immigration for years on end.

Take a look at this chart below. It shows the number of car fires and how they’ve increased over the years. Nuff said.

bilbränder

And if you ask me, this situation is also the result of the disgusting rhetoric by the political Left. They constantly talk about “structural racism” in Sweden and act as if this country is so horribly racist that you don’t even stand a chance.

I’ve come across numerous immigrants who honestly said that they don’t see the point in working hard and studying, because “it doesn’t pay off if you’re an immigrant”. The regressive left is destroying the spirits of immigrants in Sweden, making them feel more excluded and turning them against Swedish people.

Can a Swede be a blatte?

A blatte is an immigrant who thinks he’s a gangbanger from Compton. This foreigner comes from, for example, Iraq – lives in Sweden – yet gets his identity from ghetto culture in America. And then he has the nerve to insult assimilated immigrants for having an identity crisis and being “swedified”.

The blatte wrongfully belives he can related to negroes living in Compton, listens way too much to gangsta rap, and watches Scarface way too many times, to the point where he starts idolizing criminality and materialism. Blattar think that the coolest thing you can do is to treat other people like shit, because being kind and responsible is considered to be weakness.

Being a blatte is more about behavior than ethnicity. Blatte simply refers to a person that’s non-Swedish or non-white and acts like a gangsta stereotype. Thus the person can be Arab of African, but also Bosnian or Italian. It is possible for white Swedes to be blattar as well but in that case it’s more appropriate to call them “wannabe-blattar” since we’re talking about a ethnic Swede pretending to be an immigrant pretending to be a gangsta nigga from America.

So why did you choose to call yourself “blatte” as an artist-name?

Because it’s ironic. It’s satire. It’s meant to ridicule immigrants who take pride in stupidity and degenerate behavior.

When you grow up as an immigrant in Sweden you’re aware of other peoples expectations of you. There is a clear perception of what immigrants are “supposed” to be, and if you defy those expectations other immigrants will call you a “swedefied faggot” and a race traitor. You know how many times I’ve been told Im not a “real Bosnian” simply because I listen to satanic metal?

The purpose of my artist name is to mock and destroy peoples perceptions of what an immigrant is “supposed” to be.

“Immigrant” is not a fucking identity, it’s simply something that you do; relocate to a different country. Yet it’s typical for immigrants to associate values and behavior to that label. There’s an idea in society of what an immigrant is supposed to look like, act, and think, and immigrants themselves are the ones upholding this stereotype as if it’s a legitimate identity.

I’ve seen immigrants pretend to have an accent they don’t even have. I’ve seen them pretend to be shittier at speaking Swedish than they really are, just so they appear to be more “immigrant”. I’ve seen people create their sense of self in the conflict of Swedish VS Non-Swedish. It is absolutely pathetic. Be yourself and fuck whatever cultural prison someone else is trying to lock you into.

My artist name is a mockery of the destructive blatte-culture whose morality includes hating police, common sense and decent behavior. I’ve heard of immigrants who’ve been mocked by other immigrants because they try getting good grades in school and learn to speak Swedish properly. Are you seriously gonna tell me that’s not a huge problem?

As an immigrant I feel provoked by what this blatte-culture entails because I do not buy the notion that all immigrants need to be stupid violent macho-caricatures. Do not try to lock me into a box where I am not allowed to explore my own thoughts and feelings. You might expect feminists and leftists to wanna take this fight alongside me, but instead they’re telling me Im the problem.

Immigrants are not a homogenous group. Immigrants can come from all corners of the world. A white American is as much of an immigrant as a black Somalian. Just because you’re born in a different country doesn’t mean you have to be a complete dumbass.

But considering how many people didn’t understand the blatant irony in “En Arg BLATTE talar” I decided to go with something simple when I turned to an English audience. So that’s why I chose to call myself the Angry Foreigner, because it can’t be misinterpreted as wildly.

Perhaps I thought too well of humans when I assumed they’d be able to read between the lines.

Horrible tale from inside a Swedish ghetto

ghetto

This is a comment that a Swede left on my video about the horror of being gay in Sweden’s muslims ghettos. I thought it was worth posting because it’s well-written and nuanced, with insight that I rarely see in the debate about immigration and regressive cultural values.

Here it goes.

“Most of the people commenting this video are living outside of these ghettos. People haven’t lived where radical Islam is the norm. Where riots have occurred. Where you can’t see a lot of the people’s faces. Another thing I find funny is that always on the news and in comments sections they think the cars that burn are selected by random. They’re not. They’re messages.

I live in one of the so called ghettos. It is a challenge but I am having it easy because I am a very big dude and I’m considered pretty normal. I thought I’d just show you some perspective from someone actually living in one of the “danger zones”.

First of all there are sub zones within the media’s perspective of the danger zones. In Biskopsgården there are places that clearly is outright dangerous to even be in while some are quite nice with a view over the danger zone.

The funny thing is that Biskopsgården is really beautifully located with a lake and football fields. It is really beautiful. We also have to make it clear to whom it is a danger zone. The entire area in Biskopsgården is a danger zone to the police and LGBT people but to most normal males you won’t really notice much if you aren’t a very frightened person like most Sweden Democrats that would shit themselves if a man with a turban walked on the sidewalk with them. I will make a danger list at the end of this post for y’all really scared people. If you’re like that then you’d have a heart attack looking at the danger zone.

I live in the part with the view of the local danger zone and there are quite a lot of shady people in the danger zone. With the local danger zone I mean it would even be risky for me to walk in there without a translator because drugs build up a certain parameter in that area and ask the wrong questions and you are really playing with fire. You don’t even have to try to find them. They are obvious and have a special way they move among people. You also see all the drug delivery vehicles (moped and such) and they don’t even try to hide the scent of cannabis.

Many of my friends are actually immigrants because almost everyone here is. My friends are from different places and the most liberal of them are from richer families from Iran and the most radical have rich family roots in Saudi Arabia and even he thinks that his culture’s view on women is a disgrace to all human beings and that they have too much influence on the Muslim community that is harming the faith. True, they cannot represent all the immigrants from Iran and Saudi Arabia but I’m just saying they are pretty sane Muslims.

When we walk around they usually translate to me what is going on because quite frankly Swedish is not even a language within close proximity of the danger zone. My friends know Persian, Arabic, German and Swedish so I get a whole new perspective of what’s going on when they translate to me in German because no other Muslims in the area know German so they don’t expect anything. We use German just to be sure. The funny thing is though that just like some Swedes look funny upon people talking Arabic on the tram when they don’t understand we get a lot of funny looks and sometimes even comments in Arabic when we are using German.

The main problem here is how much influence this danger zone gets on the surroundings. Muslims further away from the danger zone would be considered a lot more normal while the closer you get to the epicenter you have ISIS within those walls. I’m not even kidding, ISIS is right there and most of us could point them out and according to rumors SÄPO do have the building under supervision. To be able to talk you’d have to grow the biggest balls ever seen and be willing to move as soon as you spill it out.

The problem is that the amount of fear that the epicenter emits makes a lot of the Muslims around feel threatened and like they’re bad Muslims. One of my friend’s mother who lives closer to the epicenter has told me that she is more scared in her home in Sweden than she ever was in Iran, because in Iran she would at least live with her kind of Muslims and the Swedish immigration board don’t seem to understand the difference.

One of her relatives had to live with people that had physically abused a woman in Iran who was her friend, and she tried to bring up that she feared for her life and that the men looked at her as if she was prey. Now they shared the same camp and she was scared to death while she was waiting to gain access to the Swedish system.

Anyway, my friend’s mother has to live in fear due to her being a woman and not having much of an education. We don’t have anything to offer these women in Sweden and hence they become even more victimized and she told me that many of her friends rely on their men to bring home income, which makes the radical ideas keep on prospering because women don’t have a voice and say if they want to survive. There are simply no homes for either Swedes or immigrants who don’t feel safe in their own home so my friend’s mom is going to live her entire life in fear and die in fear if she don’t find the money to move back to Iran. Now if that isn’t the most heartbreaking thing you’ve heard in a long time you have a pretty shitty life my friend.

She says that it is an unfair amount of pressure on her to live right by the Quran while a lot of men can get away with a lot of things you shouldn’t do according to the more radical in the bunch. She is under more pressure to live right than she ever was in Iran. She has wanted to become a feminist and join a union and that was something she was looking forward to in Sweden but she wouldn’t feel safe doing that even though such a union is made for people to feel safe.

You can even see that even though Swedes can’t say that females in this area are actually one of the entire WORLDS most oppressed women that a lot of agencies understand that they have to do something. Almost everywhere you see signs of phone numbers to female support groups and hotlines for domestic abuse. On buses, bus stops, road signs etc. I have even taken a picture of a sign from Amnesty right in that neighborhood addressing the oppression of women. Dude, a sign from Amnesty in Sweden. So it is realized in some sense but we aren’t doing enough and taking proper responsibility since they still live in fear.

The closer I get to the epicenter the more you will hear of the topic that the angry foreigner is talking about. It doesn’t seem to be linked to a gender so at least there’s some equality. Okay, I really shouldn’t joke about that but there’s no difference from what I have heard if a man is a homosexual or a woman but I could be wrong. However, both seem to lose their human rights.

The further away you get from the epicenter the more most Muslims act like most Swedes. We Swedes kinda say we accept homosexuality but deep down a lot of people outside of the cities would still question it behind your back. However, in the epicenter it is not uncommon to hear both women and men talk about how Allah will punish the homosexuals. The radicals don’t even hide it because they are in fact PROUD of that opinion. They see themselves as the perfect Muslims. They say it clear in the open because they don’t fear anything and most people don’t even speak Swedish. If an outsider come into the area you have to have a translator to be able to hear what they’re saying right there clear in the open.

They even discuss daughters that don’t bleed during their wedding night and how ashamed families should be if that happens. I once heard that they “knew a guy who could surgically make their daughters bleed on the weeing night to uphold the family’s honor”. I mean these are to most normal people considered really radical thoughts but they seriously talk about it on a bench by the playground while their kids are on the swings 10 feet away.

The closer to the male teenagers you get the more they feel like they are messengers of Allah and they have the right to according to my friend’s translation “teach homosexuals to cure themselves and save those who aren’t infected”. A lot of radical women also take pride in a radical man so sadly the behavior is in some sense encouraged by the radicals in this wheel of a fucked up life.

It really is a different world near the epicenter. You can’t bring a camera or pretend you are showing something, doing a documentary or being suspicious because then they will show that you are not welcome. By show I mean they will break your shit. Me and my friends usually pretend we are passing through to get a pizza or something and that works most of the time. The most common thing though is that most people that we’d consider normal live in fear no matter the religion if you are close to the epicenter.

The police is increasing their presence but the problem is that near the epicenter they don’t believe in the police. Most don’t even believe in each other and are racing to be the best Muslims. The criminals dealing in drugs believe they are invincible and the victims and witnesses don’t believe in the police to protect them if they were to speak up.

Near the epicenter everything is ruled by fear and Allah happens to be a quite common tool to enforce their laws. A lot of times you hear talk about “being a proper Muslim”. That seems to be very important. It is like this race to be the best Muslims there ever was. So in some sense radicals gain ground by saying that they know the path of becoming the best Muslim and many in the younger generations look upon them with awe. It’s insane and the fact that this is so clear in the open and that homophobic ideals is talked about as common as the weather is crazy.

I’ve seen multiple newspapers in Sweden mention this now even before the angry foreigner did but to me and us living here it’s old news. It might be news for y’all living outside of these areas but ever since I moved to Gothenburg homophobia has always been there in Biskopsgården.

So when news come that teenagers are acting upon these things they have heard their entire life even by the playground it’s not a surprise. In fact I’m surprised we haven’t seen an attack on the pride festival yet. However, we also have to be realistic here. It’s not thousands that are throwing rocks, sending messages by burning cars and beating women. It’s a small percent but that doens’t make it any more right or acceptable but those actually acting the radical ideas out are very few. A lot more people share many of these radical ideas but they don’t physically act on them and break the law.

Even though the news mention the entire area of Biskopsgården it’s not as bad in the edges as the epicenter that I’ve explained here. It is livable for a male. When cars have been burning it is not like I fear for my life because even though it looks crazy on the news it’s a message and if the police show up the anger is only directed at the police due to the teenagers not believing in the police.

I have never seen a fat radicalized middle-aged Muslim male throw rocks at the police in Sweden. It is the radicalized teenagers and those engaged in criminal activity that believe they can carry out these acts. That’s the one time I see the radical Muslims and criminals join forces. To throw rocks at the police. #ComingTogether

I’d be afraid if I was (I put them in order as well to give you an idea how afraid you should be, feel free to combine them how you please but remember to double the fear for you first addition and triple for you second and so on):

1. A woman

2. A homosexual/Transexual

3. A feminist

4. A parent

5. A police

6. A nurse

7. A teacher

8. An Imam

9. A politician

10. A racist

Imagine being a homosexual woman with a kid being a police officer by day and an Imam by night. No, I’m just kidding. I know that’s ridiculous. That would never exist.

However do notice that by just being male you are a lot safer than our poor females that we contentiously let down in these areas. So even though you are scared from what you see on the news and you write an angry comment, you are blessed compared to the real oppressed in this country.”

Sex crimes in Sweden – Can you teach men not to rape?

RAPE

A myth circulating the internet states that in Sweden the majority of rapes are assault rapes, and that this is due to immigration from muslim countries.

First things first: It is true that immigrants are overrepresented when it comes to rape. A study by the Crime Prevention Council (BRÅ) from 1996 showed they were 4 times more likely to be registered for the offense, and this primarily concerning immigrants from arab countries. A follow-up study from 2005 more or less confirmed the results of the previous one, and so have studies from Denmark and Norway.

However, both Swedish reports showed that the majority of immigrants (85-88%) weren’t registered for crimes what so ever. These numbers shouldn’t be used to smear an entire group of people, they should be used to highlight problematic tendencies so we can counteract crime. If you want a further analysis of these statistics you can watch the video I did on this topic, I go over it extensively there.

There is truth to the notion that immigrants rape more than Swedes. My personal estimation is that approximately half of all rapes in Sweden are conducted by the immigrant minority which makes up 20% of the population. It’s also true that immigrants are more likely to be convicted of crimes due to stereotypes and prejudice within the justice system, but I don’t think that’s enough to explain the overrepresentation.

However, it’s also problematic when statistics get misinterpreted and blown out of proportion to the point where it’s ridiculous. It’s blatantly untrue that 77% of rapists are muslims, and the majority of rapes in Sweden are not assault rapes.

It’s said that 63% of all rapes are committed by a total stranger. This is the result of a misunderstanding. The number is pertaining to “sexual crimes”, a label which includes things like rape, flashing, prostitution, trafficking, molestation, sexual coercion and child pornography.

rapereserc

In 63% of the sexcrimes, the perpetrator was completely unknown to the victim, in 25% of the cases the perpetrator was an acquaintance, and in 11% of the cases the perpetrator was a closely-related person.

34% of sexcrimes were considered severe enough to the point where they would qualify as attempted, or completed, sexual coercion or rape. The safety study also makes sure to clarify that sexcrimes which occur in the home, or by someone the person knows, are very likely to be underreported in a study such as this. At the same time, the reported number of sexcrimes where the perpetrator is someone you know is 36% – remember, 25% acquaintance and 11% closely-related.

Thus it is entirely possible that the remaining 2/3 of sexcrimes – which aren’t rapes – are primarily those where the perpetrator is unknown. Do also keep in mind that assault rapes and stranger-sexcrimes are not the same, one other report from BRÅ states that 12% of all reported rapes in Sweden are assault rapes. This is along the same line as public statements made by the police – it’s a minority, not a majority.

Page 10 in a different report about how rape is handled in the legal system states that, more than anything, the suspects are most often someone you have a relationship to – whether it’s someone close like a boyfriend, or someone more shallow like a classmate.

Add to this the fact that assault-rapes are more often reported than rapes by someone close to the person, for obvious reasons. It’s not very easy to report someone that you know as a figure in your day-to-day life, especially if the rapist is a respected member in the community. Some fear not being believed, and some simply don’t want to stir up controversy in their social circle. Imagine having to tell all your friends that the well-liked good-looking guy they all know raped you. Yeah, it’s not a fun thing to do.

Also, since the rape wasn’t brutal and violent the victim might try to rationalize that it wasn’t ”that bad” to save themselves from the traumatic experience. Here’s one account, another, yet another, and one by a man – They all display the same repeating pattern and the reaction is gender neutral. The man describes how he was drugged and raped at a party, and kept dating her afterwards – because the idea of being raped, as a man, was so horrible that he pushed it away and acted like it wasn’t a big deal.

Acquaintance rape victims also tend to blame themselves more, especially if alcohol was involved. Being attacked by a madman in a park sort of takes away the whole aspect of: ”Did I do something to lead him on?” So all in all, acquaintance rape victims are overall less likely to speak out, seek help and tell the authorities. All the talk about “women’s responsibility to avoid rape” probably keeps women from reporting as well.

The amount of unreported rapes, according to Sweden’s Crime Prevention Council, are 90% and it’s assumed that these are primarily acquaintance rapes. It is thus most likely that the saying about how most rapes are done by someone the victim knows isn’t at all a lie. The numbers indicate that it’s primarily “ordinary” men who rape, and not maniacs hiding in bushes.

People don’t understand that a typical rapist is a typical person

He’s an ordinary guy. Or at least he appears to be an ordinary guy. On the inside there is nothing ordinary about him, but on the surface there’s nothing differentiating him from other men when it comes to everyday appearance, behavior and social relations. It can be someone good-looking, or ugly, a loner, or a popular guy with many friends, single, or with a girlfriend, unemployed or in a prestigious profession.

So when someone drags up consent classes as a possible tactic towards rape, and you reply by saying ”Im a nice guy who would never do anything bad”, it really doesn’t mean anything. Most rapists are seemingly nice guys, and certainly see themselves in that light.

A study was done where nearly 1900 college students were asked four questions to determine if they had ever raped someone, or attempted to rape someone, but the study never used the word “rape”. And 120 men, meaning 6%, answered yes. A similar study which surveyed 86 male college students found similar results.

It turns out that as long as the word rape isn’t used, rapists will self-report. Because the word rape is taboo, and most typically rapists do not view what they did as rape.

If the immigrant minority which makes out 20% of Sweden’s population are responsible for half of all rapes, then that means Swedish rapists make out the other half. This is easy to forget when discussing rape, but it would be intellectually dishonest to ignore this and only focus on immigration.

Every so called “women’s issue” is also a man’s issue, because women raise us. They become our sisters, friends and girlfriends. I care about the rape issue because I care about the safety of women, not because I wanna use it as a cheap case against immigration.

In my video about immigrant rape statistics I concluded that there are several solutions to the problem, one being higher demands for assimilation, and the other being consent classes – both for newly arrived migrants as well as swedish youths (meaning both young boys and girls) as part of their general sex education.

This caused certain people to get upset and try dismissing me as a radical feminist. The usual objections took place, which is why I eventually decided to do a video on the topic of consent classes in general.

Everyone knows it’s bad to rape

Saying “everyone knows rape is bad” as a counter-argument is meaningless. The stereotypes of rape are so widespread in society people even become confused when you explain that someone can be raped by a boyfriend, and that violence doesn’t have to be present. They will downplay and say that it isn’t “rape-rape”, despite the fact that rape is simply defined as sex against your consent. The word “rape” is so ridden with misconceptions and taboo that not even the people who force others to have sex with them would use “rape” to describe what they’re doing.

The myths about rape, in practice, give rapists a social license to operate. They allow the perpetrator to hide in plain sight. To rape someone and still stay in the same social circle because she won’t tell anyone, since what happened doesn’t fit the sensationalist stereotype of sexcrime.

The unspoken pact to make excuses for what happened, look for mitigation or patch things over, so you can keep believing that what the people we know do to each other isn’t “rape-rape”. Since it wasn’t violent, and she didn’t fight and scream, it couldn’t be “rape-rape”. Making sure that you have it as comfortable as possible when you don’t have to ponder the possibility that a person you’re fond  of could be capable or something terrible.

The general publics ignorance about rape and what the average perpetrator looks like, is one of the reasons why the majority of sexual assault goes unreported. The stereotype of a rapist enables rape. This is especially true when it comes to child rape. When our society keeps the myth alive that it’s primarily the no-good muslim nigger or the dirty loser who doesn’t have any friends, that’s when a nice 41-year old teacher is given the leeway with a 14-year old victim.

How often don’t we hear the same thing repeated whenever someone gets caught for fucking kids? Interviews with the community saying ”oh we never would have thought that about him, he’s so nice, and shy, and tender. He’s so good with the children, they all like him. He’s not a black monster.”

This myth of the perpetrator makes it possible for the perpetrator to find his victim, and many times the parents just leave the prey over to directly to him. No parent would leave their child in the care of a dirty gypsy, yet they think it’s perfectly fine with the 41-year old nice good-looking teacher, or the enthusiastic camp leader. If you don’t know about the bad things in this world, they can creep up on you.

If men are a part of the problem then men can be a part of the solution. We need to talk about this and acknowledge the fact that rape is a much more complex issue than “those brown people are bad and it’s all about foreign culture, but when whites do it it’s just because they’re psychopaths”.

No, rapists aren’t necessarily psychopathic or suffering mental illness. You look at various studies done on incarcarated rapists and the number of psychopathic offenders vary from approximately 5% to 60% depending on the type of offender.

PSYCHO

Also, the mere fact that the term ”non-psychopathic offender” is used in rape research and statistics should tell you something. One study also concluded that rapists actually have more empathy towards women in general than nonsexual offenders, and the same degree of empathy as nonsexual offenders towards rape victims at the hands of other men. The study concluded that rapists may suppress empathy primarily towards their own victim rather than suffer from a generalized empathy deficit.

In my video about consent education I mention a Swedish book by a crime journalist who interviewed sentenced rapists. In one of the chapters, the author met a woman who had a rapist in her social circle. He had been sentenced by the court for having raped and beaten his former girlfriend, yet numerous friends of hers had dated him throughout the years. They refused to accept that he had raped someone, because according to one of the women: ”It’s just impossible, because he’s good in bed.”

That’s how fucking retarded people are. They think that if someone is a rapist then they’re ALWAYS raping, 24/7, every single time they end up alone with a woman. They’re totally incapable of seeing nuance and understanding the psychological complexity of human beings.

It’s completely possible for a person to be capable of tenderness as well as horrible violence. People wear many different hats throughout their lives; Father, son, librarian, firefighter, caregiver, thoughtful, arrogant, foolish.  We can be any combination at any measure.  What I’m saying is that he could be a caring, funny husband while at the same time being a rapist.  Loving to most people, and cruel to others. Evil does not have a face.

Now, the problem with sex education is that it often only deals with the biological aspects of sex, and not the psychological and social ones. Talking about pregnancy and contraception is great, but don’t stop there. Go on to cover the importance of boundaries, the unrealistic expectations porn creates, how consent works, the different faces of sexual assault.

Teach students that nobody else is allowed to define your needs and what makes you feel unsafe. That’s what people need to talk more about, what healthy sexual relations look like.

And even if it might not reach through to those in the risk-zone of becoming a perpetrator, it would at least educate the general public on how it all works so we can create a society that’s more supporting of victims, instead of hounding the shit out of them because their experiences don’t suit your ignorant prejudice about sexual assault. Steubenville wasn’t unique to America, we’ve had cases like that here in Sweden as well.

The reason I think there’s something to consent education is that they tried it in Kenya, and it gave results. Acquaintance rape dropped by 20%, and the amount of boys thinking that miniskirts were inviting them to have sex dropped by 50%.

Now, Kenya is a backwards fucking country. If you can take a country that backwards and get them to stop raping after just a few classes, imagine what could happen in a more developed country like Sweden or America? I really don’t think we should underestimate what can happen when people get together and talk. It also shows that rape can be the result of skewed perspectives, and that’s something you can change.

But of course, just sex ed on it’s own isn’t going to solve everything. This is just one step of many that need to be taken to eliminate sexual assault. Another step is more scientific research.

The little research that’s been done indicates that what creates a rapist is not one single factor or experience, but a combination of different factors contribute to the development of predatory behavior in a young person. Like for example social inadequacy, various types of exclusion, low self-esteem, attachment issues, family dynamics, violence in the family, and lacking social competence. One study also demonstrated that rape is 2x more likely in societies where gender inequality is normalized.

These factors aren’t automatically going to turn someone into a rapist, but they’re commonly reoccuring. There needs to be more research done to reach more conclusive conclusions.

Last, but certainly not least

A frequent objection I see is: ”Consent classes is one of the biggest feminist insult to a man’s intelligence, especially to a western man.”

First of all, these classes should be for both men and women. Only focusing on men as perpetrators wouldn’t be very inclusive since men can be raped, whether by women or boyfriends, and women can be raped by women as well. Consent is a matter of person-to-person interaction, not gender.

Second of all, who gives a fuck if you think it’s an insult? Your feelings are not an argument. If you’re truly serious about stopping rape then you wouldn’t have a problem sitting in a classroom for 2 hours. If you really care about fixing the issue you wouldn’t have a problem thinking: ”I know this doesn’t apply to me personally but maybe other people aren’t as smart, and there’s no way to know for sure just by looking which person might be in the risk-zone, so I’ll just take one for the team here.”

The feelings of offended men are not worth more than the security of women, for the same reason that the feelings of offended muslims and christians aren’t worth more than freedom of speech. There are certain virtues we as a society need to uphold. And catering to the offended is not one of them.

What does it take to provoke in the metal scene today?

wolves among sheep

METAL.png

In the 90’s black metal was provocative and outright dangerous, a number of church burnings can be attributed to it’s torch carriers (pun intended). But nowadays black metal bands don’t even dare to make music about Islam, no less torch mosques. It’s basically become yet another safe teenage revolt within the defined confines of the consumerist society.

And therefore NSBM plays a rather interesting role in this situation. You could say that it’s the final thing keeping black metal “pure” according to it’s traditional values: Aggression, hatred, violence, unacceptable taboos, controversial provocation, and putting yourself outside of society.

The Swedish book “Blood, Fire, Death” which details the development of the Scandinavian metal-scene dedicated a chapter to NSBM, and the following point was made – keep in mind Im quoting loosely here:  “You can sing about murder, rape, torture and all kinds of atrocities, and still be accepted by the music establishment. But as soon as you start heiling you can say goodbye to all future gigs.”

We saw it happen to punk. It went from being a genre in opposition to the establishment to becoming yet another product within the cogs of the establishment, comfortably sedated and finding it’s way to top charts, magazines and TV.

We saw it happen to death metal and later even black metal. It’s interesting how that degree of extremely violent lyrics and concepts can become assimilated into the market, like any other genre of music. The controversial aspects were transformed into consumption, rather than ideals. The content of the music became a kind of parody of itself, something meant solely to provoke. The bands don’t actually worship the devil, it’s just a symbol to upset.

However it should be noted that Watain is a band which is very serious in their Satan worship. And yet they’ve managed to get picked up by the music establishment, gotten mainstream and even won a Swedish Grammy.

This despite the fact that the singer encourages acts of terrorism in the name of Watain, celebrated a school shooting during a gig, and once said that he’d like to have a concert on 6 billion corpses. 2 out of these 3 statements took place before the grammy, and none of them are jokes.

And still the band gets described by mainstream music journalists as “interesting with something that’s the opposite to all the goodie-two-shoes presentable.” They’re saying this about a band that possesses bigger hatred than the nazis do.

But I suppose Watain’s salvation is the fact that when it all comes around they do believe in equality. They hate everyone, unlike nazis, and thus they somehow fall in line with the progressive leftist hegemony in Sweden. It’s okay to hate people, as long as you hate everyone. Because then at least you believe in equal human value. Even if that value is zero.

To sum it up: In the minds of the establishment, Watains hateful ideology is the charming spice in a dull everyday landscape of music, and not something you take seriously.

Unlike NSBM, which genuinely challenges the political system. And therein lies the interesting aspect of the genre. It is completely unassimilable. Can you imagine how the music industry would go about in transforming NSBM to the next big thing in the metal world? It’s unthinkable.

NSBM is more than just music. It is a political ideology. The absolutely worst, ugliest, most hideous ideology the Western world knows of. NSBM is forever doomed to lurk in the shadows, far from the acceptance of the mainstream establishment. They are pariah even amongst outcasts, and thus representatives for a true underground movement.

But at the same time, national socialism is just another pack-mentality. A sheepish ideology with the aim to make everyone the same. In that way it completely contradicts the fundamental values of black metal.

Nazism is not misanthropic, it loves white people. Nazism is not individualistic, it is collectivist to the highest degree, with a future dream of racially pure white-picket-fence societies where people live in accordance and stability. The theme is actually one of love, rather than the misanthropy which usually permeates black metal.

 

I was inspired to write this article after reading the book “Wolves Among Sheep”, a great read about the NSBM scene which doesn’t try to condemn or promote, but merely state things as how they are. Order it here if you’re interested.

Muslims, terrorism and useful idiots

1

The recent terror attack in Brussels killed 34 people and injured at least 230. Understandably, people are scared. Even outside of Brussels. These terror attacks happened at the airport, subway and central station, public places with the highest amounts of people. Places that every citizen is guaranteed to visit at least once in their life.

And completely in accordance with the long-standing tradition of humanity,  fear turns people into complete fucking morons.

Either you have the regressive left being so afraid of racism and increasing ethnic tensions in society that they try way too hard not to be racist, or you get the bigots exploiting a horrible incident to build up anti-muslim sentiments amongst the terrified and easily manipulated public. (As was proven recently, quite hilariously, by Microsofts twitter robot – racist bullshit is norm on the internet)

Im sick of these extremes completely ruining the public debate and distracting from the conversational point that should be made the loudest in a time like this.

On one hand, we have the idiots refusing to acknowledge that there is a problem with the radical branches of Islam, and that the muslim world needs progressive reformation. Instead of acknowledging the tough nuances and facing the risk of offending some morons, they will go to any length to combat racism instead. When interviewed about the terror attack in Brussel, Sweden’s Prime Minister wanted to “remind everyone that one of the biggest terrorists we’ve had in Europe, Anders Behring Breivik, was anything but muslim.” 

Pathetic relativizations is not what people need to hear right now. In Sweden, the dominating debate narrative the past years has been to explain away terrorism as the result of Western societies being super-racist. Apparently that’s why Gothenburg has more IS-jihadists per capita than all of America. But I don’t buy it.

The research available to us shows that most terrorists come from stable middle class families. Engineers in particular are overrepresented as a profession amongst captured terrorists. It’s time we put down the myth that terrorists become terrorists because of class gaps, capitalism and white racism. It’s a matter of ideology, namely salafism/wahhabism. This should be obvious by the fact that the leader of ISIS has a Ph.D. in Islamic Studies. Certain interpretations of Islam legitimize violence, plain and simple.

Other interpretations don’t. These reformists are not helped by the regressive left claiming that Islam is perfect, but they also aren’t helped by right-wingers adamantly claiming that Islam is evil and that a single muslim cannot be trusted. The mere existence of these reformists shows that there’s different ways to interpret religious scripture, and some are more compatable with Western civilization than others.

People also seem to be forgetting that the vast majority of islamist terror attacks occurs in muslim countries, specifically: Iraq, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria. Ordinary muslims are the biggest victims when it comes to islamist terror.

And blaming refugees for the Brussels attack is absolutely fucking senseless. Do you not realize that what you saw in Brussels is exactly what most refugees are running away from? They’re trying to escape a world where seeing people blown up in front of you is run-of-the-mill everyday reality.

You’re trying to use a terror attack upon Europe to tell people that they shouldn’t be fleeing daily terror attacks on their homes. It’s preposterous. I know that Im against Sweden’s immigration policy but that’s because it’s been irresponsible for several years on end, not because I hate refugees as individuals.

As one black man delicately put it in a Youtube-comment: “Muslims don’t scare me. My black ass is more likely to get shot by the cops or by someone who looks like me.”

So Yes, there is a problem with the radical branches of Islam. And Yes, the muslim world absolutely needs a reformation. Misogynistic and homophobic views/legislations are far too widespread in those countries. We all know this, it’s widely talked about in the alternative media scene, and I myself have even dedicated an hour long video to this issue.

But why aren’t we talking about the larger political implications which caused these problems to begin with? I see stupid Americans who hate muslims and solely blame Islam for the terror attacks on the West, when it’s their own politicians who made ISIS into a serious threat to begin with:

Even here in Sweden, the past 10 years people have been voting for the same politicians who’ve turned this country into a ticking time-bomb, politicians who funded Al-aqaida allies in Syria and helped create the refugee crisis.

In the 80’s Ronald Reagan described Bin Ladin as a “freedom fighter”. Why? Because America thought they could use militant islamists as useful idiots against Russia. I don’t think I need to explain how that strategy backfired a couple of years later. They’ve essentially funded the rise of religious extremism in the Middle East and turned muslim terrorism into a bigger problem than it had to become.

The same people the West is fighting today, they once financed. The fact that Saudiarabia and Turkey love ISIS is hardly a secret by this point in time, and yet Western countries keep pampering with them and working together. I wonder why. Here’s an account from a Swedish soldier:

“When I talk to a man who’s currently deployed in Iraq and ask him why we suck up to Saudiarabia – a country governed by the worlds worst hate-ideology wahhabism, a country that finances ISIS, a country that decapitates and crucifies people in the town square as often as we chill out and watch movies – instead of invading them, and other allies in the Gulf states, with the purpose of antiterrorism and establishing democracy, the soldier replies: “They basically own the Stockholm stock market as I’ve understood it.”

When Saudiarabia, America and Israel all want the same thing, you know something fucked up is going on.

Killing ISIS and forbidding people to recruit for terrorist groups might solve the problem short-term, but not long-term. Because the political systems that create jihadists will still remain long after ISIS has disappeared. Countries are still going to be governed by greed and willing to invade someone else’s nation solely for the sake of juicy natural resources.

The real war on terror cannot occur out in the public with the rise of a police state surveillance society as a result, and citizens rights to privacy as sacrifice. The real war on terror needs to occur in the corridors of power, where the elite decide to create fertile ground for extremists solely because they want access to other countries wealth.

The “mass murderer” Assad has higher trust and confidence amongst his people than what the Prime Minister in Sweden has. Assad is running at little over 70% whereas Stefan Löfven is running at little below 20%. What does this tell you?

It’s time for the Western world to stop acting moral-police over the world. America has the highest prison population in the world and Sweden is importing rape, none of you are in the position to lecture others on how to run their shit politically.

The West’s humanitarian interest in the Middle East is solely about financial gain, and hadn’t it been for America and Sweden supporting “peaceful rebels” we wouldn’t be having a refugee crisis that’s trying to collapse the Swedish welfare state right about now.

The terror attacks we are seeing is simply the result of the power struggle between elites. And it’s us ordinary citizens who take the shit for it all.

If you’re gonna start hating muslims because of what extremists do then you’re simply a useful idiot, because that’s exactly what they want you to do. Divide and conquer. Keep people from uniting against the corrupt ruler by having them pointing fingers at each other.

Ordinary muslims don’t support ISIS, but instead of allying yourself with them against the hand that’s pulling the strings, you wanna point the finger in the wrong direction.

 

The importance in hearing people out

tolerance

This post touches upon something I pointed out in my previous post, namely that when Donald Trump went on the Alex Jones show for a long interview where he doesn’t get interrupted, and was given the chance to make his opinions heard, I realized that what Trump says simply doesn’t hold substance. He was talking and talking, yet it felt like nothing was coming out of his mouth.

Which sort of makes me think about how people tend to react to “controversial” figures in general. The reaction is often emotional, rather than saying: “Let’s listen to this crazy bouffoon and find out why he thinks like he does.” What Alex Jones chose to do was listen, and that’s how you extract more out of a “nutjob” to see if there’s any substance.

When you first hear something controversial it might appear like the statement has no merit nor substance, based on your preconcieved notions. And that’s why it’s important to ask questions and let the person reveal the reasoning behind their statements. If there really is no substance behind them then you’ll proven to the audience that the nutjob really does lack substance. But it could also turn out that they’ve thought about something that the rest hasn’t.

For this reason, tolerance and democratic discussion which focuses on the reasoning presented, rather than ad hominem, is a win-win situation. Either it’s proven beyond reasonable doubt that the person is a fucking moron, thus causing them to lose their mystifying appeal, or you learn something new that everyone could benefit from.

I see the American media making the same mistakes with Donald Trump, as the Swedish media has done with the Sweden Democrats. They think bullying and smear tactics are gonna make people dislike the ugly duckling. But that’s counterproductive.

When you only attack someones character and alleged intentions, the argument they presented is left un-refuted. This creates the illusion that they are in the right, even if their point could desperately need some well-deserved problematization and nuancing.

This is what we here in Sweden should have been doing with the Sweden Democrats years ago, when they were voted into parliament back in 2010. Back then they were small. Now they’re the biggest party in the opinion polls. Guess why?

The Sweden Democrats might have a shady background, but they occasionally make very sound points. And these are points no other party wants to make. Common sense statements like: “Immigrants should adapt to Sweden, not the other way around.”And “Sweden shouldn’t have more immigration than it can handle.”

Instead of refuting these points, politicians have been shouting “racist” instead. Even when the SD express common sense. What kind of effect do you think this is gonna have on the general public?

Politics is about making prioritizations. If you don’t know how to make uncomfortable yet necessary priorities, you should not be in parliament. If you choose to prioritize the citizens of other countries over Swedish citizens, you really shouldn’t represent the Swedish people. And you shouldn’t be surprised when the party who expresses peoples frustrations end up becoming bigger and bigger.

Let the scary boogeyman speak. The only reason you have to fear the words of someone, is if there’s actually some truth to it.

Donald Trump is the symptom, not the illness

483208412-real-estate-tycoon-donald-trump-flashes-the-thumbs-up-crop-promo-xlarge2

I definitely understand his appeal. In a politically correct society where you are judged by ”ugly thoughts” rather than just ugly actions, seeing someone break every taboo imaginable is incredibly liberating.

On a primal level it reminds you of what you as a human were put on Earth to do: You are here to express yourself. Be it your dreams in life, or everyday ponderings, you’re supposed to live for yourself. Yet existence for many is just 80 years spent worrying about stupid peoples shallow judgment of your character.

All society does is tell us to get in line with the rest of the drones who are ready to sacrifice their personality for the sake of fitting in. We’re taught to hide our prejudice, not to voice them and examine them. (And eventually, challenge them)

Thoughts deemed uncomfortable aren’t to be examined, they’re meant to be pushed under the carpet. Even though bottling things up can give you cancer. If that’s what suppression does on an individual level, imagine what it does on a national level in terms of society?

The dumbing down of society has gone so far we’ve forgotten the very fact that a human being can’t be reduced to a few ideas. One opinion doesn’t make an entire person, so if someone says something bigoted or stupid they don’t automatically become Hitler.

Yet people are exactly that judgmental. Nobody listens to each other anymore. They’re more interested in pushing you down so they can raise themselves up.People have forgotten to distinguish bad thoughts from bad behaviour. They act like defect thoughts will affect others the same way defect actions would. (Physical assault, robbery, rape)

We’re constantly told by society that we aren’t good enough, that we are defect somehow, finding flaws so they can offer fake solutions. Bad breath? Afraid someone won’t fuck you? Buy some mouthwash. Feel worthless and confused? Buy a religion.

Trumps appeal is that he is unapologetic about his percieved flaws. He’s doing what anybody wish they could be doing: Speaking their mind, with no restriction, and being applauded for it by those who are like-minded.

But at the end of the day, I suspect Donald Trump is just another crony capitalist who, if given the chance, would join the New World Order so fucking fast it would make your head spin. The guy isn’t even a good businessman, he’s just good at presenting himself like one. Google ”Donald Trump Scotland” and see how he fucked the entire country over with devious promises of profit. There’s absolutely no reason to assume he would stand up for the everyday common man. He sure didn’t do that in Scotland.

I watched his interview on the Alex Jones show, since that’s the only place you get to hear his thoughts unedited and uninterrupted, and I had to turn it off halfway through. Because despite many words gushing out of his mouth, the guy isn’t saying anything of substance. Like any other politician, it’s shallow and abstract, simply meant to attract.

This doesn’t mean that any of the other political candidates are better. They aren’t. And voting for Hillary just because she has a vagina doesn’t turn you into a greater moral example than a Trump supporter. Face the fact: American politics are severely fucked. And every year it’s the same shit.

There’s only two political parties you can vote for, and pretty much all their candidates are controlled by private banks and corporations. America needs to look into direct democracy and abandon the illusion of democracy they’ve been sold thus far. Choosing a puppet every 4 years is not freedom.
