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.”
