Socialism succeeds only until you run out of other people’s money principles [Darleen Click]

The bigger The State, the smaller the citizen

STOCKHOLM (FRIA TIDER). Owners of cars destroyed in the riots fined for parking illegally while police adopt non-intervention policy.

Since last Sunday, May 19, rioters have taken to the streets of Stockholm’s suburbs every night, torching cars, schools, stores, office buildings and residential complexes. Yesterday, a police station in Rågsved, a suburb four kilometers south of Stockholm, was attacked and set on fire.

But while the Stockholm riots keep spreading and intensifying, Swedish police have adopted a tactic of non-interference. ”Our ambition is really to do as little as possible,” Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving explained to the Swedish newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.

”We go to the crime scenes, but when we get there we stand and wait,” elaborated Lars Byström, the media relations officer of the Stockholm Police Department. ”If we see a burning car, we let it burn if there is no risk of the fire spreading to other cars or buildings nearby. By doing so we minimize the risk of having rocks thrown at us.”

Swedish parking laws, however, continue to be rigidly enforced despite the increasingly chaotic situation. Early Wednesday, while documenting the destruction after a night of rioting in the Stockholm suburb of Alby, a reporter from Fria Tider observed a parking enforcement officer writing a ticket for a burnt-out Ford.

When questioned, the officer explained that the ticket was issued because the vehicle lacked a tag showing its time of arrival. The fact that the vehicle had been effectively destroyed – its windshield smashed and the interior heavily damaged by fire – was irrelevant according to the meter maid, who asked Fria Tider’s photographer to destroy the photos he had taken. Her employer, the parking company P-service, refused to comment when Fria Tider contacted them on Wednesday afternoon.

When The State demands one substitute Law for morality, then The State will be served – no thinking, no debate, no dissent, no evaluation allowed.

From British citizens who stood like sheep while the Islamist predators proudly did their butchery, to the Swedish police who only enforce the law against those who won’t pelt them with rocks … Socialism is a cancer ravaging Western civilization.

And it’s going to get worse.

  1. are these the pussies what gave food stamp his shiny shiny peace prize?

    i get all these scandi pussies confuzzled

  2. – At some point the citizenry will have no choice but to act, just to survive.

  3. The usual way to act is to find a strong man of your own to get behind.

    Of course, you still find yourself ending up under.

  4. Any ticket for not having a tag that was probably burned up along with the vehicle while police did NOTHING should probably be paid in the Lannister style. (But with fewer exposed breasts or dwarves and perhaps toned down a wee bit in intensity.)

  5. They really should just tighten that up: “We surrender. Our throats? Here, have at them.”

  6. If only everyone rode bicycles instead of drove cars, then we wouldn’t have this problem.

  7. Satire at it’s best.

    Except it’s not.

  8. Satire leaked into the real world decades ago. Now snark is following suit.

  9. clearly those affected by the riots should just lay down and take it, like their betters advised them to.

  10. – The penultimate useless Swede police constablishments only purpose is to collect revenue to pay themselves. Sweden has achieved buruecratic Nirvana!

  11. – Oh I don’t know palaeo, maybe they could introduce midget tossing as a nice diversion after a hard day at the riots.

  12. When police stopped to write tickets for parking violations, apparently no rocks are thrown. Otherwise, they’d take the same position on them as the burning cars.

  13. a parking enforcement officer writing a ticket for a burnt-out Ford.

    In the late 60s I spent a month with a friend in NYC who lived on the lower east side. NYC had even-odd parking there and the change over was at midnite. many cars got tickets. When I first got there I noticed stripped burnt out cars with tickets on them.

    I asked about it and was told if a car hadn’t been moved for several days the local street gang would start stripping it and when there was nothing left torch it. All the while the police would put a ticket on it every other night for the parking violation.

    When my friend came back to Michigan he brought a gym bag full of the tickets he’d gotten with him. Tickets were given out but rarely would anyone pay them. Just another job security thing for a certain class of civil “servant.”

  14. ”Our ambition is really to do as little as possible”
    OK then.
    Even allowing for some differences arising in translation, I am in awe of this statement.
    But parking fines must be collected to feed the socialist beast

    Spoken; acted like true public sector employees… do as little as possible while continuing to raise revenue

  15. It gets worse. I read today that the police finally did act. However they continued to ignore the Muslim rioters and instead dispersed Swedes who had gathered to defend themselves and their homes.

  16. I’ve lost all respect for Swedes. You’d think they’d be out getting a little retribution on.

  17. ikea doesn’t let you schedule delivery they only let you have “next day”

    a lot of people are surprised to learn this

  18. I’ve lost all respect for Swedes.

    I’m surprised you had any to lose in the first place.

  19. I lied to make a rhetorical point.

  20. The Lone Survivor of the Struma:

    *** Stoliar lost hope. He tried to kill himself by cutting his wrists with a pocket knife. But even that didn’t work: “My hands were too swollen from the frost.”

    After 24 hours, a coast guard rowboat appeared and picked Stoliar up. He was brought to the port of Sile and then to a military hospital in Istanbul. A week later, he was moved to a jail, where he was detained for being in Turkey “illegally.”

    Stolier was kept in jail for 71 days. Only then did the British government decide to grant an “exception” and allow him to enter Palestine. A train took him to Aleppo, a car to Tel Aviv, both arranged by Brod. ***

  21. Then back in the Arab lands where refugees are created by the multiple hundreds of thousands at the mere drop of a word, Hassan Nasrallah has promised a thing or two to vouch to the Sunni Muslims of his environs: “Victory in Syria” for the regime of al Assad, for Nasrallah’s Hezbollah and for Iran’s reigning mullahs. It’s a squib that Nasrallah ends up in the same camp as Israel, which prefers the Assad it knows to the jihadists it doesn’t want to get to know.

  23. Yes hf, but the swedish meatballs don’t contain mule meat… so there is that

  24. The most successful socialism, just ask anyone.

    Rioting spread to several Swedish towns on Friday night as police stepped up arrests during a sixth night of unrest and far-right vigilantes chased non-whites in southern Stockholm.

    In Linköping, central southern Sweden, police responded to 120 incidents as cars, caravans and two schools were set alight. At one point a blazing truck was rolled into a building, which caught fire.
    The violence appears to have been sparked by young, second-generation immigrants from north Africa and the Middle East angered by racism and social exclusion.
    In the southern suburb of Tumba, at least 50 rightwing extremists chased immigrants, according to numerous media and eye-witness reports on Twitter.

    Police told Aftonbladet newspaper that the far-right had planned for several days on social media to “help” deal with the riots. Dagens Nyheter newspaper reported that 10 police vans were needed to prevent neo-Nazis from attacking locals. No arrests were made.

    A group claiming to be the driving force behind the vigilantes wrote on Facebook that there was a “large group of Swedes” in southern Stockholm and “smaller groups out on the streets to help maintain law and order”.

    The anti-immigration Sweden Democrats, polling around 10 per cent ahead of elections next year, have called for harsh measures to deal with rioters.

    Swedes with immigrant backgrounds promised to mobilise to keep the far right out of their neighbourhoods.

  25. far-right vigilantes chased non-whites

    But, of course.

    The violence appears to have been sparked by young, second-generation immigrants from north Africa and the Middle East angered by racism and social exclusion.

    No, you fools. Those are the new generation of Swedes. Enjoy!

  26. Now, for something completely different than immigrant riots in Sweden, yet likely to be mirrored here…

    Judge Rules Against Ariz. Sheriff Joe Arpaio

    “The White House will not even grant ICE officers a low-level White House meeting but invites illegal immigrants into the Oval Office,”

    BUT! NEVER FEAR! Rubio and the gang of eight are here!

    the record shows that Rubio used his power in Florida to block popular immigration-enforcement bills prior to his election-trail conversion into an immigration-hawk.

    We’re in the very best of hands. I’ve never been more comfortable with the direction our nation is taking.

  27. James Neal burnt a Swede last night.


  28. The violence appears to have been sparked by young, second-generation immigrants from north Africa and the Middle East angered by racism and social exclusion.

    Yeah. They’re angry that the pasty-faced, blond haired, blue-eyed, post-Christian set won’t submit to Allah, or show proper deference like good Kafir should.

    Richard Fernandez has a good piece on the elephant in the room. Or should I say camel?
