Knock it off with all the conspiracy theories about Epstein’s death, the New York Times has the real conspiracy for you. From the New York Times news section:

THE NEW NATIVISTS

The Global Machine Behind the Rise of Far-Right Nationalism

Sweden was long seen as a progressive utopia. Then came waves of immigrants — and the forces of populism at home and abroad.

The square where witnesses said Russian journalists were trying to bribe immigrants into violence.

By Jo Becker, Aug. 10, 2019

RINKEBY, Sweden — Johnny Castillo, a Peruvian-born neighborhood watchman in this district of Stockholm, still puzzles over the strange events that two years ago turned the central square of this predominantly immigrant community into a symbol of multiculturalism run amok.

First came a now-infamous comment by President Trump, suggesting that Sweden’s history of welcoming refugees was at the root of a violent attack in Rinkeby the previous evening, even though nothing had actually happened.

“You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden! Who would believe this? Sweden!” Mr. Trump told supporters at a rally on Feb. 18, 2017. “They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”

The president’s source: Fox News, which had excerpted a short film promoting a dystopian view of Sweden as a victim of its asylum policies, with immigrant neighborhoods crime-ridden “no-go zones.”

But two days later, as Swedish officials were heaping bemused derision on Mr. Trump, something did in fact happen in Rinkeby: Several dozen masked men attacked police officers making a drug arrest, throwing rocks and setting cars ablaze.

And it was right around that time, according to Mr. Castillo and four other witnesses, that Russian television crews showed up, offering to pay immigrant youths “to make trouble” in front of the cameras.

“They wanted to show that President Trump is right about Sweden,” Mr. Castillo said, “that people coming to Europe are terrorists and want to disturb society.”

That nativist rhetoric — that immigrants are invading the homeland — has gained ever-greater traction, and political acceptance, across the West amid dislocations wrought by vast waves of migration from the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. In its most extreme form, it is echoed in the online manifesto of the man accused of gunning down 22 people last weekend in El Paso.

In the nationalists’ message-making, Sweden has become a prime cautionary tale, dripping with schadenfreude. What is even more striking is how many people in Sweden — progressive, egalitarian, welcoming Sweden — seem to be warming to the nationalists’ view: that immigration has brought crime, chaos and a fraying of the cherished social safety net, not to mention a withering away of national culture and tradition.

What could possibly explain why the famously liberal Swedish population is slowly coming around to the view that immigrants are committing annoying levels of crime in Sweden other than a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy centered in the Kremlin? Obviously, as everybody who has been to college knows, the only reason anybody would imagine that different ethnicities might have different crime rates would be due to a global conspiracy.

Fueled by an immigration backlash — Sweden has accepted more refugees per capita than any other European country — right-wing populism has taken hold, reflected most prominently in the steady ascent of a political party with neo-Nazi roots, the Sweden Democrats. In elections last year, they captured nearly 18 percent of the vote.

To dig beneath the surface of what is happening in Sweden, though, is to uncover the workings of an international disinformation machine, devoted to the cultivation, provocation and amplication [sic] of far-right, anti-immigrant passions and political forces. Indeed, that machine, most influentially rooted in Vladimir V. Putin’s Russia and the American far right, underscores a fundamental irony of this political moment: the globalization of nationalism.

The central target of these manipulations from abroad — and the chief instrument of the Swedish nationalists’ success — is the country’s increasingly popular, and virulently anti-immigrant, digital echo chamber.

It’s a CONSPIRACY!

Similarly, the reason you started hearing about “Rotherham” a half decade ago is because of some nefarious Muscovite conspiracy. Similarly, the Kremlin must be behind the widespread belief in America that blacks commit a higher level of crime than other ethnicities.

Also, Putin strangled Jeffrey Epstein with his bare hands.

    On the bright side, it would seem that we as well as the Russians get some credit for this: ‘most influentially rooted in Vladimir V. Putin’s Russia and the American far right.’

    Actual conditions within Sweden — in particular the impact of the poor immigrants — appear to rank at best a distant third.

  3. J.Ross says:

    There have been several journalists and bloggers who attempted in multiple separate incidents to “debunk” the no-go zones, and they all either proved them, or were turned back early, or prevented from going at all by police. Police have abandoned facilities multiple times over because of grenade attacks. And there’s the children getting beaten or buffalloed into rape clubs.
    Now, here’s the really sad part. Russia is geographically near to Sweden and has had a long history of fighting them and messing with them. Part of the reason Swedish mass media is so Soviet is because it was consolidated by a Bernie-style Soviet fanboy decades ago. Russian subs, communications, and radiation frequently give Swedish security personnel interesting work. But granting that the “refugees” are Moscovite catspaws (to show how incoherent this is), you’re still left with a situation where getting rid of the “refugees” solves the problem.

Some of us have actually been through this. Perhaps only property owners should be allowed to vote, just like in the old days.

    BTW: Wouldn’t everyone agree that if something is becoming popular in Sweden that it must amount to something? Think of ABBA people!

    Interesting fact.

    In the jail in which Epstein is held, there has only been 1 other suicide in the last 21 years. The jail has been described as a facility in which suicide is “nearly impossible” due to the elaborate security procedures.

    See this article. https://nypost.com/2019/08/10/suicide-supposedly-nearly-impossible-at-ulta-secure-jeffrey-epstein-lockup/

    In those 21 years, nearly 40,000 inmates have passed through the jail facility. So the facility has a suicide rate of 2 per 40,000. Coincidentally, 1 of those 2 was Epstein.

    What a huge coincidence.

    By the way, your lifetime odds of being struck by lightning are roughly 1 per 9,000.

    So Epstein’s chances of being struck by lightning were more than twice his odds of “committing suicide” while imprisoned in that jail.

    If it were not illegal, and if it were not forbidden to write this, I would encourage the MEN in any country to actively fight all intruders who are a threat to the women.

    It is the responsibility of MEN to protect. It is a MAN’s job to fight intruders who are a danger to women.

    So, I said it. MEN in any country are responsible for the protection of the women. For me, it is easy, in my safe home and community, made safe by men before me. For others, it is today, at this very moment, a serious thing. I think I am not the only man who thinks it is totally, completely normal and good for the MEN in a country to take up arms against invaders who threaten their women.

    No matter what the law, there is a higher law. Brave MEN will fight and suffer for this. Brave MEN will protect women.

    yah; totally agree…and adore you, Buzz. Finnish men have been pretty brutal and scary…so migrants have left and are not eager to come to a land of a 7 month fall/winter. I saw less Finnish young women (hijabbed and all) with Muslim men. The Sons of Odin (started in Norway) rule the east & North, so, once October comes, no one lingers outside.

    You really have to be in the Polar regions to know what I speak of: you can no longer hang-out after dark because it is just too cold. Most Scandinavians live in modest homes/most young people can not afford their own apts…so, there is little indoor space to gather – one of the reasons that Nordics don’t like to be around strangers…and that will never change.

    There is a saying in the Nordic countries: “what keeps you going in the late fall & winter, long spring – we wait for summer.” Which lasts 2.5 months.

    Winter is Coming became a very funny forecaster’s meme.

What had begun as a credibility gap became something far more perilous, a reality gap. He had a sense that everything he had wanted for his domestic program, his offering to history, was slipping away, and the knowledge of this made him angrier and touchier than ever; if you could not control events, you could at least try and control the version of them. Thus the press as an enemy. Critics of the war became his critics; since he was patriotic, clearly they were not. He had FBI dossiers on war critics, congressmen and journalists, and he would launch into long, irrational tirades against them: he knew what was behind their doubts, the Communists were behind them—yes, the Communists, the Russians; he kept an eye on who was going to social receptions at the Soviet embassy and he knew that a flurry of social activity at the Communist embassies always resulted in a flurry of dovish speeches in the Senate. Why, some of the children of those dove senators were dating children of Russian embassy officials. And he knew which ones.

  61. Swedish police urge women not to go out alone after 4 rapes in 4 days in Uppsala
    By EMMA R. 9 August 2019

    FacebookTwitterPrintMore7.9K
    Swedish women need to think about their “behavior” when they leave the house in the city of Uppsala. Otherwise, they might be raped. That message is stated by the police in the newspaper Expressen.
    During the night between Tuesday and Wednesday there was another attempted rape in Uppsala. It was the fourth assault in four days.
    The police were alerted by several people who heard a woman scream for help.
    They don’t believe that a serial rapist is operating, and therefore investigate the incidents as separate.
    No descriptions of the suspected perpetrators have been published.
    The police warn women, and say that they must think about how they can change their behavior.
    Which means that Swedes now have to change their behavior because of the unsafe situation in the country.
    Women in Uppsala should not worry but be cautious with how they behave. Perpetrators seek out lonely men and women, so it’s important how one acts when outside, according to the police.
    They advise women not to go out alone, to always be around others and to stick to well-lit streets. Ideally, they should not walk through the city at all in the evening and at night. If they must go out, they should travel by car.
    When Expressen asks if it really is on the women to change their behavior, the police reply that they cannot be in all places at the same time, and that men can use the tips as well to reduce the risk of being subjected to street robbery

    Similarly, the reason you started hearing about “Rotherham” a half decade ago is because of some nefarious Muscovite conspiracy.

    You might also have heard about it 18-20 years ago when Nick Griffin brought it up and the MSM in Britain claimed it was a BNP conspiracy theory.

    And then the 30 years previous where it was common knowledge among locals and local authorities were an everyone conspiracy theory.

    It’s been noted that a pattern in Jewish history is the creation of central villains to the point that Amalek was said to be survived by some sons who scattered in the wake of the genocide of their people and whose descendants would make themselves known, right now it’s Putin and Russians more generally.

    It’s always interesting to see what religious traditions survive secularisation.

    “10% of the population is Muslim in Oslo, Norway.”

    Apparently Oslo is also importing population to maintain its economic status. Such populations have a weak point: they literally can’t do anything productive. Cut off welfare from the general population and they starve. No base of supply except the population they’re dependent on.

  75. This is amazing to me that this story is published just now. I had dinner in London on Wednesday with a Swedish woman who is the epitome of the humanitarian Swedish liberal, having spent her career in the UN / immigration racket. I’ve know her for ages and in the absence of her husband decided to get to the bottom of this Swedish nonsense. She stated the very contents of this NY Times piece: that a lot of the incidents were right-wing false flags. Her 17 year old son across the table kept butting in telling her she was talking rubbish . . .

    Anyway, when I pressed further to try and understand why the Swedes felt they had to take a perfectly decent country in 1980 and ‘complicate’ it, after a bit of thought she actually said ‘Sweden was very boring in the 70s and this has improved the food’. I couldn’t believe it. These people seriously have not thought this through beyond one chess move. She lives in a large house on a lake front outside Stockholm a long way from any troubles.

  76. Crime is the easiest objection of the nationalist for the NY Times to refute. In NYC, non black immigrant areas are low crime. But there is no social connection to the people. That is the problem and objection to immigration. It breaks down social cohesion of the community. And people have little interest in rebuilding social connections. Why get involved in coaching a school basketball team if most of the kids are not of your ethic group? Why organize the town to build a public pool when immigrant groups will be the majority users?

    There’s no reason that the cops and courts shouldn’t be able to keep Sweden safe. Vigilante violence probably would do more harm than good. Sweden is probably a lost cause. The US should invade it, remove the criminal aliens and [redacted] the traitorous politicians. Preferably the invasion force would consist entirely of Swedish-Americans.

    get buried.
    There is a conspiracy alright, but it doesn’t involve Russians.

  84. Rinkeby, eh? I believe that’s the suburb which accounts for 40% of violence in Stockholm while housing less than 4% of the Swedish capital’s population.

    Is Russia also behind Rinkeby residents’ protest against rampant violence in the neighborhood, or activists’ blaming the third world-esque crime rate there on “colonialism”?

    “Suburb of Violence” was held over the weekend at Rinkeby Square where residents, along with artists and commentators, gathered to present MPs with a list of demands for action to solve the violence and social problems plaguing the migrant-dominated suburb.

    The demonstration was called in response to rising violence in the area which has seen 22 murders in less than two years, three of which took place in recent weeks.

    Kitimbwa Sabuni, from the ‘Afro Swedes Risk Association’, said “colonial logic” is to blame for unemployment, substance abuse, and violent crime in migrant communities living in Sweden.

    “We came to Europe because European colonialism made it impossible for us to survive with dignity in our countries of origin. But the colonial logic followed us here. We were sent to the suburbs, which became the new colonies.”

    Sabuni told activists that along with Black Lives Matter in the U.S., ethnic minorities in cities across Europe are mired in violence and unemployment because colonialism is still ongoing, and urged them to rise up against the oppressors.

    Despite housing just 3.9 per cent of Stockholm’s population, Järva, which consists of the Rinkeby, Kista, Spånga, and Tensta districts, accounted for 40 per cent of all violent crime in the capital in the last year.

    Spokesman for the group, Marcella De La Cerda, slammed what she perceives as inaction by Swedish authorities to prevent violence in Järva, but also called for a reduction in police presence, which she argues “increases the feeling of stigmatisation” in the suburbs.

    She said: “If we had seen that 22 children had died in an area where white people live, the reactions [from the authorities] would have been completely different.”

    However, De La Cerda said police patrols are counterproductive because they “signal to children and young people that society sees them as criminals who should be guarded”.

    Instead, Suburb of Violence are calling for politicians to provide “jobs, housing and schools”, invest in more psychosocial workers and psychiatrists, and for gun laws to be made even more restrictive.

  85. after a bit of thought she actually said ‘Sweden was very boring in the 70s and this has improved the food’.

    She’s almost certainly lying. Some people just can’t get past the associations in the minds between “racism” and KKK/Nazi-style actions. Those were admittedly rather horrible, so it’s understandable that people want to tamp down on “racism” – and tell whatever lies they think are necessary, in the hopes that if racism is discredited and remains discredited, then everything will eventually work out well. These illusions evidently die hard.

    The NYSlimes hates “Whitey” specifically Christian “Whiteys” (the WaPo, the other powerful USA political paper, also hates Christian “Whitey” having had a “Religious” writer who hated on them for many years who was married to the Jewish Executive Editor Ben Bradlee and recently came out as having hidden that she was actually a “Witch”/Satanist all that time in a book about herself–you can’t make this stuff up….)–its Publishers don’t consider themselves “Whiteys”, and certainly not “Christians”, even though if they walked thru any of the projects of any NYC neighborhood, or elsewhere, they would find the locals there would not differentiate them do to their very “whiteness”….

    The NYSlimes openly hired an extremely Racist Editor who was/is quite open about her intense hatred of “White” people and when challenged on the hire doubled down on it and she now is on their payroll in said position–joining no doubt any number of other Racists active and unchecked at the NYSlimes–it is no doubt a requirement to work there as it is no doubt at the WaPo. I also wondered why this is– and my research shows it arises from Jewish Supremacy and belief that a “White” majority is a danger to their power/position–basically the only danger– to them and their goals in any given society they get a foot hold in and then takeover–Banking, Media, “Entertainment”, Law…. If you study The Frankfurt School — the Communists that came here in the 1940s to “escape” Hitler– this is in fact what they were up to with their various pro-homosexual, anti-family, pro-“minority” etc. propaganda and they basically destroyed Academia in the USA in large part and gave us “Identity” Politics and much of what we see now reflected in the Left today and corrupting and destroying society….

    Of course not all Jews are partakers by any means of this ongoing “work”, often they suffer due to what a friend of mine called the Big Jew/Small Jew dichotomy–the “Big” Jews are running this show and it is always harmful to “Whitey”/Christians and quite often to the “Small” Jews also, that’s acceptable to the “Big” Jews and sometimes required as part of the goals they want to achieve–the formation of “Israel” and power of same etc.–The NYSlimes has been destructive to the USA for most all of its existence and still will state in print its love of Joseph Stalin who successfully murdered millions of the Christian “Whiteys” people the Slimes hates so very much.

    I’m on an iPad, and can’t quote. Some America-loving billionaire should offer grants. Spend x years in a 3rd world restaurant (plus billionaire-provided stipend to live large in the 3rd world), and get seed money to start a restaurant in the US. Failing that, we need an an F0D immigration visa for cooks. There’s no reason we need millions of aliens for thousands of restaurants.

    Swedes are ashamed because they were neutral in WW2 when Denmark & Finland (Finland more substantially, duh, bigtime duh) & fought back, like real men. It is all about Sweden being an effin wuss and really, smarmy, male wussy-assed for 250 years. Seriously, Swedish men have been thought of as feminine by Finns & Norwegians (Danes are German) for the entire 20th century….maybe 19th.

    In many ways, I feel NOTHING for Sweden – let them fall. Let Somalia declare it their territory.
