News You Won’t Read in Sweden

Swedish journalists are, at least according to research done at Gothenburg University’s School of Journalism, heavily biased towards socialism and environmentalism. As such, there are a great many news stories that we never get to read about in Swedish media. It can be minor things like Obama mistaking a window for a door that would have made headlines had Bush done it. More often, however, the stories revolve around the catastrophic hatred and stupidity of socialist leaders, and their horrific effects on their countries.

Just today, Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva proclaimed proudly that:

“This crisis was caused by the irrational behaviour of white people with blue eyes, who before the crisis appeared to know everything and now demonstrate that they know nothing.”

Now, I for one am opposed to racism. I believe in science, reason, logic, family values, and capitalism. Socialists do not. They want to paint people as groups, then sort groups into either the victim category or the sinner category. The victim category then has a collective right to steal the resources of the sinner category. This is nothing new, all collectivist ideologies do it, from social democracy to national socialism.

The saddest thing of all is that no doubt a lot of self-loathing relativists up here in Sweden, particularly on the left, agree with Mr. Silva. They fail to realize that the reason that there is no financial crisis in Africa is because there’s ALWAYS been a financial crisis there. They’ve been a drain on the world economy for decades. Should we thus condemn all blacks? Of course not! The same goes for the primitive societies of much of South America, ruled by thugs, juntas, and socialist dictators, which also have caused the world economy much turmoil. Are all latinos thus guilty of “knowing nothing”?

Anyway, a few other quick hits.

  • The Greek Archbishopwho heads the Orthodox Church in the US has compared Obama to Alexander the Great. Right. How about we wait for him to actually win any wars before we do that, shall we?
  • The U.S. senate follows the Swedish model of government control over everything, and now decides to involve itself in how college sports teams are ranked. Since, of course, there’s nothing more important to do right now!
  • George Soros, the self-loathing capitalist who exemplifies everything Ayn Rand loathed about corruption, has made billions plundering the wreckage of the financial market whose faulty policies his money lobbied for. First you pay the lefty politicians, then you get your payoff. Atlas Shrugged coming to life.
  • Club Gitmo inmates will be released in the US and receive welfare. For the rest of us who want to gain a US citizenship, it is a great deal harder. Is it fair that people who work hard ands tudy hard should have a more difficult time than murderous thugs?
