Sista delen, mina damer, herrar och ickebinära! Enjoy!
Del två är äntligen här! Enjoy!
Första delen av Stjärnornas Riksdag ute nu! Ha en fin fredag and may the force be with you!
Ni har kanske sett Stjärnornas Riksdag på Youtube. Nu finns den här på bloggen också, ifall upphovsrättsmaffian skulle få för sig att ta bort den på Youtube.
Också en sak till! Alla kan se den här serien! Inte bara medlemmar eller folk som betalar till min blogg. Bra va?
I was completely horrified when I saw the videoclip five days ago, where a white policeman put his knee on a black man’s neck until he lost his breath and died. How completely disquisting. I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that a policeman actually murdered a defenseless man, or the fact that his collegues did not stop him.
Off course, this is just one of many examples of the US police abuse of power. But I’m glad that I’ve not yet seen so many people that are defending the cops. Even those guys may understand how brutal and unforgivable this is. But a thing that bothers me, though, is when people in Sweden, where I liv, point finger at USA and claim this racist power abuse to be something typically American. Sure, it might not exist at the same level in Sweden, but I don’t think we should bash America’s treatment of black people, without condemn the systematic racism in our own country.
Sweden has, for a long time, been a very left wing country. We like to boast ourselves and point finger to the US. And we always have. But let’s face it. We have racism here in Sweden as well. In the justice system, in the courts and in the police. We have a so called “small talk” racism, especially in classical working class jobs in industries. I’ve seen it myself and it’s e bigger problem than you could imagine. Off course we can condemn this racist attack in the US, but let’s not be all too unaware of the racial discrimination in our own country.
When it comes to discrimination of people of coulor, I as a white person, have a responsibility to stand up whenever I see it. And so do you and everybody else. You might think that I’m making difference of people now, but it’s just a fact that white people, in general, don’t know how it is to live under structural racism. It’s easy for us to say “that’s no big deal” when we havn’t lived through it for generations and generations.
People of color have fought long and hard to crush racial opression. But as long as white people continue to ignore it or maybe even justify it, we are a part of the problem. Only together we can end this. But then we have to see our own part in it, instead of ignoring the racism when it’s right in front of us…
I don’t say you have to be a white knight or a hero with a cape. It’s the small things that matter the most. Things in our daily life. When somebody tells a racist joke, or use the N-word, maybe a relative, or at the working place, or when a collegue of yours, are exposed to racism, rise up and say it’s not okay. I know it’s hard, especially when it’s your boss you have to stand up against. I’m not the best man either and you should know that I chose my conflicts wisely. But the last years, I’ve been better to stand against racism.
We will always remember George Floyd. May he rest in peace. And remember that Black Lives Matters. Always. From USA to Sweden.
Now I am probably going to lose a whole lotta followers, but that’s not a very bir problem. So, I will start to debate a lot more about politics and society and controversial matters on my blog sometimes. One thing that drives me crazy is the propaganda against Sweden – my beloved country. This post will probably not reach out to the right people, only those who already agree with me. The other half will call it propaganda and communist lies. But I¨m pretty used to that, so I don’t care.
Since Donald Trump reached to power in 2017 in America, the propaganda against Sweden has increased dramaticaly. Fox News, Breitbart and other right wing media platforms in the USA have since long described Sweden as a tax nightmare. This have been going on since at least the 70’s. But now I cannot sit down and watch anymore. The same media that have been describing Sweden as a socialist tax nightmare, are now writing about our crime rate, immigration problems and disgraceful political correctness all time high. Sweden have become the very prime example of immigration and violent crimes.
In the 2016 years election, Donald Trump said “Just look what happened in Sweden last night!” The funny fact is that exactly nothing happened in Sweden that night. But it is proven that Donald Trump was watching a documentary about Swedish riots the night before. But it was not a live TV-reporting. It was just an overview about Sweden. So basically, Trump lied due to his unability so see the difference between a live report and a documentary. Donald Trump’s outburst was just one out of several attenmpts to demonize Sweden to statuate an example of mass imigration failure.
Sweden is more and more described like a country on the brink of civil war, where violent immigrants control the streets and blow eachother apart, and the rape capital of Europe, which off course is a complete lie. I became very angry when an American rocket scientist in Texas tried to explain from his little Texas ranch how it is to live here in Sweden. I was furious. The risque of being shot or murdered in the USA is five times as high PER CAPITA. Sweden is one of the worlds most comfortable and safe countries to live in. When the Far right Sweden Democrats do everything they can miscredit Sweden in foreign press, for example, New York Times, i get even more angry.
What exactly is better with the USA?
- USA have 5 times as much deadly violence per capita
- USA have one of the worst state depts in the world. Sweden however, have not have this much state excess since the 70’s.
- USA have much more illegal gun violence and school shootings. Hundreds of people have been murdered at their schools since the 1990’s. In Sweden, I can count that on one hand.
- Sweden is the 17´th safest country in the world.
- America have place 49 in the world.
- USA have to times as much poverty (16 percent), compared to Sweden with it’s 8 percent.
- Sweden has Free education from pre school to University, while the general cost for US public collages is over 25 000 dollars a year. Private collages costs over 50 000 dollars a year.
- Sweden takes place 23 in healthcare. USA have place 37.
- United stats is the number one country of money spending on Health Care per person. 10 000 dollar per capita.
- Commonwealth Fund ranced Sweden a 3d place. USA has place 11.
- America’s population have 67 percent obesity. Sweden have 50 percent.
- In 2017 Sweden got ranked place 1 in tackling inequality, while USA got ranked place 17, according to an Oxfam University report.
Off course Sweden have problems. We have problems with poverty and imigration and criminality, like all countries. But I think it in bad taste when one of the western world’s most violent and unequal countries are trying to educate Sweden in crime policy. Donald Trump and his friends should take a look at their own country before pointing finger at Sweden, which is far better in most ways, social, economic and in crime rate.
Debatt om rasiststämpeln.
Svenska hårdrocksband brukar som bekant få utstå spott och spä så fort de sjunger om historia, krig eller andra kontroversiella ämnen. Det ena argumentet är löjligare än det andra.
Tidningen Arbetet beskriver Sabaton som ett fascistiskt band.
Tidningen Arbetaren beskriver Sabaton som ett Israelvänligt band efter att de uppträtt för militärer i Israel.
Ung Vänster i Malmö beskriver Sabaton som rasse-rockare som glorifierar mord på palestinier och skryter om att ha saboterat deras planscher.
Aftonbladet nämnde några exempel på olika band som ska fått Anton Lundin Pettersson att begå terrorattentat. Några var att han lyssnade på Sabaton, Rammstein och Raubtier.
Att Sabaton drar till sig många rasistiska fans är Sabatons fel brukar de få höra. De kan inte ens sjunga nationalsången på nationaldagen utan att få konstiga frågor om rasism.
2012 släppte Sabaton successivan Carolus Rex, som handlar om Stormaktstiden och Karl XII. Många tycker det är fel för att det sannolikt kommer bidra till att många rassar köper deras musik.
Bandet Raubtier kallades rasister pga sin låt världsherravälde. Låten handlar om hur media och populärkulturen kontrolleras av en dekadent konspiration. Nazistiskt tyckte flera filosofer på Internet.
Jag tycker folk som skriker rasist åt olika metalband kanske borde ta sig lite tid att analysera deras texter innan de håller på och går efter sina egna känslor. Här är några av mina favoriter.
