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.
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.
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.
