Remarkably, nobody was killed. From Quillette:

It’s Time for Sweden to Admit Explosions Are a National Emergency
written by Paulina Neuding

The bomb exploded shortly after 9 a.m. Friday in a blast that ripped through two apartment buildings and could be heard for miles. Twenty-five people suffered cuts and bruises and 250 apartments were damaged. A nearby kindergarten was evacuated. Hospitals jumped into disaster mode. Photos from the scene show rows of demolished balconies and shattered windows. It was ”absolutely incredible” that no one was severely injured, a police spokesperson said.

It is the kind of news we usually associate with war zones, but this bombing took place in Linköping, a peaceful university town in southern Sweden. Remarkably, it was not the only explosion in the country that day; another, seemingly unrelated, blast was reported in a parking lot in the city of Gothenburg earlier in the morning. Three explosions have been reported in Malmö since Tuesday morning. As of this writing, no arrests have been made.

It’s important to keep in mind that that this isn’t happening everywhere everyday. My assumption is that the average Swede has probably never heard one of these explosions.

Still, the fact that immigrant criminal gangs are blasting away at each other and any civilians in the vicinity with hand grenades and the like in Sweden is nuts.

  6. The Swedes secure World Peace via open borders, the alternative would be a world war. Compared to this alternative, a few explosions in a (still!) imperialist country like Sweden, which lived for centuries from the exploitation of the poor and miserable worldwide. No wonder a trigger happy and Trump-loving imperialist/capitalist fool like this American blogger Steve Sailer does not get this.

    Sarcasm off.

    The BBC in 2016 — Why does Sweden have more boys than girls?The latest estimates suggest there are 123 boys for every 100 girls among 16 and 17-year-olds. That’s an even greater imbalance than in the same age group in China…The natural “sex ratio at birth” is 105 boys for every 100 girls, according to the World Health Organization – and official statistics show that in 2014, there were 108 boys for every 100 girls among Sweden’s 16 and 17-year-olds.

    Why does Sweden have more boys than girls?

    Here we have a variant on the concept “burying the lede.” They know the answer to the Q, but don’t say it, instead offering the Q up as a some vague cosmic mystery.

    The answer is even given (albeit buried), but not spelled out explicitly for the reader.

  24. I can add some more detail to this case. The explosion took place in a middle-class neighbourhood with comparatively few non-Europeans, which is a sign that these gangs are expanding their roaming zone.

    It is also a sign for the complacent White middle class that its bet – namely, that it can stay insulated from these problems and just blame White working class racism for all the problems – is coming back to bite it. In Sweden, it is the suburbs who are diversified and the central city core which is more Swedish.

    Thus the problems can be pushed “out of sight, out of mind”, or that was the bet the Swedish middle class made. No more. But the idiots will still vote for the same policies.

  25. Sweden’s current state seems to be the result of conversations between Swedes and Americans going back several decades:

    Swedes: “You Americans are so racist.”

    Americans: “You’re naive. You have no minorities, so you have no justification for saying you are not racist.”

    Swedes: “Oh, yeah? We’ll show you. We’re going to open our borders, and then you’ll see how our wonderful society can deal with minorities.”

    This, of course, is followed by total denial of how bad things have gotten.

There have been female rulers in places like Pakistan or Sri Lanka, I don’t see them behaving like this.

  30. It was only in January, 2018 that possession of and use of grenades was made “fully” illegal.
    Before that they were treated as flammables and grenade accidents were akin to a gas tanker flipping over on the highway through negligence. 6 months jail.
    Now it’s 4 years jail for the worst offenses at a minimum but supply/demand says there’s already tons of grenades in Sweden.
    Also worthy of note is these are shady back alley grenades from shady eg Albanians. For every one that detonated, there’s “x” that never goes off. So the number of intended attacks is being undercounted

    Yeah. “Computer Hacking”.

    Javid’s decision follows news last week that an attempt to extradite Assange to Sweden had suffered a setback when a court in Uppsala said he did not need to be detained.

    The ruling by the district court prevented Swedish prosecutors from applying immediately for an extradition warrant for Assange to face an allegation of rape dating back to 2010. Assange denies the accusation.

    The Guardian really obsesses over the dual amazing rape story (more like ladies competing to get ding-donged by the glorious stranger). It’s as if “rape” were a Pavlovian keyword to keep the NPC in line.

In the latter assignment she was asked to leave the country because of her interactions with a CIA-related anti-Castro Cuban exile group.

  40. “It’s Time for Sweden to Admit Explosions Are a National Emergency”

    This cannot be admitted because that would involve admitting that the last generation of migration policy was a ghastly mistake, which would admit that everyone in power is a treasonous incompetent who should be dangling from a rope.

    It’s not just Sweden who won’t be admitting anything. Cities are literally starting to explode from the multicultural delusion in which all the 21st century Western elites are heavily invested. If this were attributable to right wing identitarian movements, it would be front page news across the West. Since it is migrants, the elite response will be ignore and redirect.

    Incorrect. Sweden has been essentially a puppet of the USA since 1945

    INCORRECT

    Sweden remained neutral throughout the Cold War. It was a strong exponent of the “non-aligned movement” and critic of US Vietnam policy. Olaf Palme was the first Western head of government to meet Castro in Cuba. SOME PUPPET.

    But you are right about women leaders. There is little correlation between large scale immigration and the former. In Sweden’s case, the 2 most important factors were Palme’s Premiership ( 1969-86 ) and Sweden joining the EU. Prior to 1969, the Swedish Government had a much more cautious policy on immigration. Palme changed that. Since 1995, Sweden has essentially toed the EU line on immigration. If it is anyone’s puppet, it is Germany’s – much like it was prior to the First World War.

    With regards whether a nation sent troops to Vietnam or supported Cuba, these were issues that the cuckservatives of the day debated about. Just like now when debating war against say Iran or China, these were safe political issues that the leftists in charge authorize as acceptable political conversations.

    When I say US puppets, I mean REAL issues that they were absolutely forbidden by the US regime, things like being against racial equality, having non liberal ideologies such as Christianity being part of government policy, being against the dollar run Washington consensus. Sweden was clearly not against any of these fundamental ideals, and they could not be against them because they were really were puppets, should they have decided to reject these things there would no doubt be some kind of CIA led regime changed.

    @Verymuchalive

    Sweden was a de facto member of NATO from the beginning. The Swedish ruling circles were very anti-Soviet, despite their ostentatious Third Worldism.

    Re overall worldview, the post-1945 Swedes have always been State Dept/Hollywood/UC Berkeley:
    https://conswede.blogspot.com/2008/07/social-paradigms-shift-eg-our-view-on.html

    This is how historical changes usually take place. And all the people who feel despair and cannot imagine such a change have not read any history, or haven’t paid attention while reading it. Only last century we had a couple of shifts of this magnitude. When you live in the middle of a paradigm it looks impossible to change it (because all the aspects of it support each other). But if you study history you will find that such changes happened fairly often, and how it works.

    To illustrate what I talk about. Louis Armstrong visited Sweden in 1933. In all the news papers he was describe as something monkey-like let loose from the jungle. All across the line! And in the reviews by the most serious music critics.

    Who would have imagined in 1933, that twelve years later Western Europe would undergo an America-led cultural revolution which would lead to the common belief that there are no differences between races?

    Translation of two of the quotes:

    Knut Bäck in Göteborgs-Posten, November 1933:
    “This world is strange… No protests are raised against how the jungle is let loose into the society. Armstrong and his band are allowed to freely wreak destruction.”

    Sten Broman in Sydsvenskan, November 1933:
    “Dare I say that he at times had something monkey-like about him and sometimes reminded of, according to our perceptions, a mentally disturbed person, when he pouted with his mouth or gaped it to its widest open and roared like a hoarse animal from a primeval forest.”

    The third quote compares the concert with a natural disaster, and Armstrong’s trumpet with a hell machine. The only good thing coming out of it, he says, is that it solves to old dispute of whether monkeys have a language.

    This is what Europe looked like, up until 1945. And since some people will live under the misconception that this was a phenomenon of the ’30s, I here provide a quote from the Swedish Encyclopedia, Nordisk Familjebok, the 1876-1899 edition (here and here).

    “Psychologically the negro can be said be on the level of a child, with vivid fantasy, lack of endurance, … can be said to lack morality rather than being immoral … etc.”

    Even though the point here has been to illustrate how social paradigms can shift completely in short time (and this is just one out of numerous examples), let me add how up until 1945 all the focus was put on the differences between races, and after that all the focus has been put on what is equal (while ignoring differences).

    And what about Tokyo, which has considerably more people that the whole country of Sweden? How many explosions are happening there?

    Sweden bomb attacks reignite debate over gang violence

    Police arrest 2 men but refuse to speculate over groups involved and why

    [Photo] Rescue workers at the explosion site in Linkoping, Sweden. Country facing a rise in violence in some of its poorest and most immigrant-heavy neighbourhoods

    Richard Milne, Nordic and Baltic Correspondent JUNE 12, 2019

    A series of bomb attacks across Sweden in the past few days has reignited the debate over the gang-related violence that has plagued the Scandinavian country in recent years.

    Three explosions rocked the southern city of Malmo within a 24-hour period on Tuesday and Wednesday, following a bomb on Friday that damaged 250 flats and injured 25 people in the central town of Linkoping

    Sweden has faced a sharp rise in deadly shootings, arson attacks, and the use of hand grenades in some of its poorest and most immigrant-heavy neighbourhoods in cities such as Malmo, Gothenburg and Stockholm.

    That violence became a crucial topic in last year’s parliamentary elections, when the leader of the centre-right opposition telling the Financial Times that the crisis facing Sweden was as serious as its financial problems in the early 1990s. 

    However, criminologists say the recent explosions — there have been others in Malmo and Gothenburg in the past few weeks — appear to represent a new tactic in gang-related violence. 

    “It’s new that it’s so frequent. It’s likely to be gang-related. A common hypothesis is that it’s sending a message, taking revenge,” said Manne Gerell, a criminology lecturer at Malmo University, adding that police had speculated that criminals could have received a new shipment of more powerful explosives.

    He noted that the targets sometimes seemed to be members of others gangs and other times something like a nightclub that had not let gangs in. “In most cases, it’s about sending a signal rather than trying to hurt people,” he said. 

    Swedish authorities have mostly appeared helpless to stop the violence. Few cases have been successfully prosecuted, meaning there is little hard evidence as to who is involved and why

    Mr Gerell added: “The authorities are struggling to find an effective way to deal with this problem and reduce it.” 

    He declined to speculate on why Sweden suffered more from this type of violence than neighbouring countries, citing a lack of hard evidence. “It’s certainly likely that it’s related to immigration but I don’t think it’s the whole truth. The main theme that connects them is not their ancestry but that they live in the same neighbourhood,” he said, adding that a few gang members were of Swedish origin.

    Exactly. This was a country that was so boring and lacking in real criminals that they needed novelists to invent imaginary Nazi sadomasochist bad guys. Before the police and the journalists had absolutely nothing to do or write about. “Sven’s pet herring is missing” – that’s as good as it would get.

    Now there are jobs for everyone – journalists, police, medical personnel to take care of the injured, glass manufacturers, construction workers, social workers and shrinks to deal with the PTSD. Sure the immigrants themselves are all on the dole, but the economic multiplier is terrific. GDP will skyrocket!

  85. @Eustace Tilley (not)

    Seriously, this is my understanding of the situation as well. For all that the NR twerps mocked it, old-style Swedish socialism seemed to suit the Swedes well enough. That kind of system can more-or-less work in a homogeneous society. But where’s the thrill in that? wondered Sweden’s most-woke elites. How can we demonstrate our superiority to our less-enlightened countrymen in such a situation? We must import hostile, unassimilable Third Worlders to create social strains. Then, we will see who’s really tolerant. We can identify and anathematize those Swedes who disapprove of our new compatriots, while those of us who clasp them to our bosom can demonstrate how morally superior we truly are. And isn’t that what a liberal society is all about?

    Lawrence Auster explained it in 2002:

    Liberal society denies the existence and/or importance of substantive human differences, and forbids acts of discrimination based on them. It comprehensively trains its citizens to be non-discriminatory, with the result that the only legitimate basis of discrimination among them is how non-discriminatory they are. However, in being reconstructed according to this single standard of non-discrimination, the members of liberal society becomes ever-more homogeneous, with their respective regional, ethnic, cultural, and moral differences being progressively leached out. As a result, the liberal citizens can no longer serve as objects of the non-discrimination that is the very purpose and function of liberal society. A steady infusion of non-liberal, non-assimilated people is needed. We thus arrive at our present system of mass nonwhite immigration, multiculturalism, racial preferences for minorities, the symbolic celebration of minorities, the covering up of black-on-white violence, and antiracism crusades directed exclusively at whites. Under this system, whites practice assiduous non-discrimination toward the unassimilated, alien, or criminal behavior of racial minorities, while practicing the most assiduous discrimination against their fellow whites for the slightest failure to be non-discriminatory. This is the system that conservatives variously describe as “political correctness” or the “double standard.” However, from the point of view of the functioning of the liberal order itself, what conservatives call the double standard is not a double standard at all, but a fundamental and necessary articulation of the society into the “non-discriminators” and the “non-discriminated against”—an articulation upon which the very legitimacy and existence of the liberal society depends.

  91. Mass Immigration Explosions are going off everywhere in Sweden and the Swedish globalizer ruling class meatball heads are sitting around eating chicken cordon bleu and cooking up political cordon sanitaire coalitional contraptions to keep PATRIOTIC SWEDES from coming to power and using mass deportations to remove the nation-wrecking foreigners from Sweden.

    The ruling class rats in Sweden have been colluding to keep the honest and decent Swedes from doing everything possible to save Sweden by stopping mass immigration and using mass deportations to protect and preserve Swedish national identity.

    Steven Erlanger in 2014:

    LONDON — Sweden’s mainstream political parties announced a deal on Saturday to preserve a minority center-left government, adopting the center-right’s budget for next year and thus avoiding early elections that looked to strengthen the far right.

    The bargain, announced by Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, cancels the early elections he had announced for March, which would have been the first snap elections in Sweden since 1958.

    The deal preserves the Lofven government, only three months old, which lost a key parliamentary vote when the anti-immigration Sweden Democrat party joined the center-right in refusing to support the government’s budget.

    You’re raising a more important question:

    What happens when the Favored Races, who can create literal human paradise on earth, are not allowed to keep running in the direction of excellence?

    What happens when they are, and they so far outstrip everyone else–that they make it look easy, the stuff the majority struggle with or can’t hope to achieve–that the masses a) want what they can create and cannot for themselves and b) feel the hostility that masses and mediocrity feel when regarding excellence.

    We used to keep that sort of mass destructive impulse in check. Hostility to the right tail of the bell curve is nothing new, and in my view it is the actual reason for mass schooling and mass media. Supplying a supplanting set of outlier behaviors. Making sure the smart kids get blackpilled and retreat to their NEET nests.

    I’m not convinced Swedes let in muzzies because they were bored, but because they suffer from a sort of pathological altruism. Whether there was an element of competitive altruism is a question that has long interested me. My gut reaction is “yes.” But I’m not convinced that Competitive Altruism was chthonic. I think it was imposed from without. “Oh, you think you’re so good? Top this!”

    Which after all has been the role of the mass media for last century at least. Society’s censors and schoolmarms.

    Embedded in that is this puzzle, which we never seem to touch on:

    What are the truly exceptional individuals supposed to do? In the post-20th-c-war era, exceptional individuals decided to do things like walk on the moon and cure cancer and create magnificent prosthetic senses and instruments (prosthetic brains) to analyze the data with.

    I’m enough of an auld phart to remember that some black preacherman brought a mule cart to the Apollo 11 launch to protest the smart kids doing that. Instead of, you know, remaining massa forever to a bunch of blacks who felt quite insecure over the prospect of freedom.

    In that mix is something frequently overlooked:

    Our most tendentious recent immigrant cluster, Jews, were very good at exploiting that for their own group ends. Jews have long reminded me of Vonnegut’s nasty little boy (one of his characters in childhood iirc) who would collect beetles who were going about their humble quiet beetly business of helping hold up then entire life-pyramid of soil and recyling. He’d put them in a jar, then shake the jar till they fought.

    SOMEbodies are paying for all the people trafficking renamed “migration.” Somehow we never quite get to the bottom of that. There is more known, and discussed, around this today than, say, ten years ago or even five. The role of the religious VOLAGs, e.g.

    But we never quite get to who is putting the bugs in the jar and shaking it.

    Shootings in the country have become so common that they don’t make top headlines anymore, unless they are spectacular or lead to fatalities. News of attacks are quickly replaced with headlines about sports events and celebrities, as readers have become desensitized to the violence. A generation ago, bombings against the police and riots were extremely rare events. Today, reading about such incidents is considered part of daily life.

    The rising levels of violence have not gone unnoticed by Sweden’s Scandinavian neighbors. Norwegians commonly use the phrase “Swedish conditions” to describe crime and social unrest. The view from Denmark was made clear when former President of NATO and Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in an interview on Swedish TV: “I often use Sweden as a deterring example.”

  145. This crowd sublimates their real concern of losing white identity + culture + language with a more socially acceptable concern of violence. This violence is bad, but that’s not the real issue.

    Honestly, if there’s a non-immigration related spike of gang violence in Europe or US, this crowd doesn’t care. This crowd doesn’t want to permanently lose their ethnic identity, ethnic culture, languages, their homelands, and doesn’t want to see those undermined. But this crowd doesn’t feel comfortable arguing about that explicitly so chooses this gang violence issue.

    Peter in Sweden has been tweeting about this for years. It is in fact a pretty constant occurrence, with very little local coverage and zilch international.

    The English language website The Local has regular reports. Here’s their “Explosion” tag page:

    I’m sure I have written this before, but while on a business trip a few years ago in Stockholm I stopped at Restaurang Löwenbräu near my hotel to have a drink. Being Europe, people are chatty in pubs and a young local struck up a conversation with me. When he found out I was American, he raved about how great the diversity of the US is and how he wished for much more in boring old Sweden. I politely responded with a neutral response like “sure”, but noticed the bartender’s facial expressions obviously felt much different as he listened in (maybe he was German?). I can’t help but wonder what they are both thinking now, since Sweden is getting diversity good and hard now?

    The free love movement was created by creepy Woody Allen type liberal Puritan nerds like you. So ugly and repulsive ( like you) the free love men were afraid to go near women. So they figured if women were bombarded by massive free love propaganda they might succumb to agree lover. Nudism was part of free love. The repulsive nerds figured if the women already had their clothes off, sex would ensue.

    I bet you look like Woody Allen, one of the most repulsive disgusting just plain icky men in existence.

    “but in an earlier era military weapons were stacked in storage facilities out in the woods ”

    I’ve read that before. I could be wrong but those storage bunkers were out in the woods and I believe the thinking was if the Cold War went hot and the Soviets occupied then soldiers and partisans who fled to the woods could bust the storage bunkers open for weapons and munitions.

    Or maybe it was such a high trust society they figured they didn’t need to waste manpower on guarding arms. (Shrug). Idk

    As usual, the ordinary man or woman on the street has no say in the matter, it was decided many years ago that certain western countries would be the first where multi-racialism was to be implemented and Sweden was one of them. The regular Swedes were never consulted on the matter.

    Two time Pakistani female Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, was assassinated by a suicide bomber while campaigning to return to the PM spot. Sri Lanka just had a spate of Muslim suicide bombings against Christian targets this Easter that killed hundreds.

    You are just idiots. I get tired of pointing out the obvious truth to you boneheads.

    The fact that neither of these countries are actually “socialist” will never get through your thick skulls. You unbelievable fools think Obama is a socialist. How stupid can you get.

    In the 90s there actually was a political movement called ‘Sweden for the Swedes’ (Sverige åt svenskarna). You can imagine how that was portrayed to the public.

    Well, almost. They were for arming the actually soldiers (conscripts, nearly all of us) in case of war. Called “mobförråd”, since used when mobilizing the army.

  166. @BB753

    Totally agree. Stupid Angela Merkel and her PhD in Gender equality studies. Useless Janet Yellen and her even more useless degree in Feminist Poetry. Dumb Marie Curie and her dissertation on African HAIR. HAIR!! Who do these women think they are?

    Stupid women running all over the place thinking they can do science and economics and stuff when they should be sitting at home birthing white babies.

    At least Margaret Thatcher had the good sense to lie back and think of England. And maybe make her man a sandwich after.

    Swedes are conditioned to ignore this – they are scared, but even more scared to speak up. The country is doomed. A normie in Sweden can not just go out and buy a gun….especially, since he never grew up around them (no conscription) . They never faced an existential crisis like Finland & Norway in the WW’s. Swedes are total cucks and will have their wussy-necks/and probably cocks, cut off by Muslims before this century is over.

    The irony is: the country will die, (well, just the humans) since living in the North is not easy…one bad season, and your entire town is dead from starvation, just like in GOT. But, this is the direction stupid and feminine countries like Sweden, Belgium, Holland have gone – they allowed themselves (former Christian – mostly Lutheran) and their culture, to be eventually, destroyed by the Moors that over ran Spain 800 years ago. Sweden is a lost cause.

    Sweden only suspended conscription in 2010, and returned to it last year– now including women.

    Sure the immigrants themselves are all on the dole, but the economic multiplier is terrific. GDP will skyrocket!

    This argument has been made for real: because asylum seekers need somewhere to live, we build housing for them, which raises the GDP! I might add that some people have taken to burn asylee centres. That could be seen as good for the economy, since they then need rebuilding.

    MacDonalds in northern Europe is not especially diverse in staff. The immigrants run their own small ethnic restaurants while MacDonalds is more expensive and offers stuff like drive-through (which is for natives, immigrants live in commie block apartments and they use public transport).

    MacDonalds has trouble competing with immigrant owned non-chain food in northern Europe because it actually has to follow all the codes of a high tax, high regulation society. I live in a neighborhood with a *lot* of shady immigrant owned places that start up, operate for a year, close and re-open with a new name painted over and the same staff but a different cousin as the boss. I’m sure they’re cashing in on all sorts of subsidies meant to promote immigrant businesses, skipping taxes, getting rid of debt with fake bankruptcies, ignoring hygiene inspections and so on.

    Either way the food from those places comes in much bigger portions that cost less than a Big Mac meal. It’s also generally better though the hygiene worries me…
