Eric Holder: Organized Crime’s Man of the Year hails Sweden as ’human rights champion’

When down is up, and wrong is right, and warmongers receive peace prizes, it’s no surprise that Sweden should be praised for its human rights record by, of all people, Eric Holder, the Attorney General of the United States (or “Organized Crime’s Man of the Year” as some call him).

George Mantor writes about Holder’s distinguished career in crime:

Eric Holder: Organized Crime’s Man of the Year

If I were a high level criminal, I would sleep with a life-sized blow-up doll of Eric Holder. How could I not love this man?

When it comes to the drug war, we wouldn’t even have one, and that would be very, very bad for very, very big business.

Prohibition is good for big business. It allows for the creation of extraordinary after cost profits while keeping competitors under control.

When you can grow your own weed or get it from your neighbor, the profit drains out of it. If you can grow Asteraceae, you can grow Cannabis. Who the hell would drop four bills for a lid of daisies?

Money laundering? No problem if you do it on a large enough scale. Government keeps the small players out of illegal activities and collects small penalties, commissions really, for not prosecuting the big boys. That is racketeering. HSBC and Wachovia come to mind.

Eric Holder has gone from the role to chief law enforcement officer of the people to a collector of commissions for providing protection to high level criminals.

If you say something the government doesn’t like, he will send a drone for your ass. It seems about the only punishable crimes left in America are speaking out and smoking dope.

Last week, Eric Holder shrugged off prosecuting bankstas because he thought it might be bad for the economy. And, he did it with a straight face.

Refusing to prosecute the largest ongoing global Ponzi scheme in all of history because it could hurt the economy? WTF? What economy? The Ponzi scheme and fiat money are the economy.

Most frustrating of all, perhaps, is that when Holder leaves office, he’ll have a lifetime lucrative job with one of the entities he refused to prosecute. It’s all so blatant. Who could deny that Eric Holder is anything but a facilitator of the corporatocrocy, and certainly not a servant of the people?

Holder will be stepping down this year, probably to sighs of relief from the U.S. population. In his time Holder became infamous for a long string of Justice Department scandals including: spying on Associated Press journalists and seizing their phone records, the ’Fast and Furious’ gun trafficking disgrace, and being held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents related to investigations.

The damage has been done, but Holder can’t go without shoring up the stage for the continued ’Egalitarian Utopia’ theater.

During the first ever visit of a top U.S. legal official visit, Holder praised Sweden as a “champion of human rights”.

From TheLocal.se:

“I have repeatedly seen the significant, positive difference that Swedish engagement brings to the international stage,” Holder told the gathered audience of politicians, dignitaries, and representatives from various human rights groups in Sweden.

Holder, the first African American Attorney General of the United States, went on to praise Sweden for passing the Discrimination Act of 2008 and for being a leader in recognizing same-sex marriages.

“By becoming the seventh nation in the world to extend the right to marry to gay and lesbian couples, you’ve stabilized families and expanded individual liberty,” he said.

He went on to reference Sweden’s tradition of being a “safe haven” for refugees dating back to the granting of asylum to Jewish migrants fleeing persecution during World War II.

“You’ve shown that, although it is seldom easy, it is both noble and, more importantly, right to fight the short term comfort of indifference; to welcome those who flee from persecution; and to shelter those who struggle to survive in the lands where they were born,” he said.

The speech, billed as a talk about confronting contemporary civil rights challenges, comes as Holder faces questions back home and from leaders in Europe about the surveillance methods of the National Security Agency (NSA).

The issue came up once again during questions following the Tuesday’s speech in Stockholm, when Holder was asked whether individual privacy protections need to be strengthened following revelations about the extent of the NSA’s data gathering activities.

“The activities undertaken by the NSA are legal under American law,” Holder pointed out.

“But that doesn’t answer the question. Simply because we have the technical ability to do certain things and the legal ability to carry out certain surveillance activities, the question we need to ask ourselves is whether or not this is something that we should do.”

He added that he, along with the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, is now engaged in an effort to review US surveillance methods.

“It’s with the understanding that we want to keep the American people safe; we want to help keep the citizens of our allies safe,” said Holder, adding he hopes to “strike a balance”.

This message is a striking discord to what journalist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has voiced regarding society and law in Sweden, stating the country is the “Saudi Arabia of feminism”.

Considering the known human right abuses and other implementations of “soft tyrannical policies” in Sweden, it’s strange that Holder would approve of Sweden like this. Or is it?

Why would Eric Holder praise Sweden?

Well, they banned homeschooling

Swedish social child services still haven’t given back the abducted Domenic to the Johansson family

Sweden as a trailblazer is pushing for the end of cash

Sweden has illegally wiretapped since at least 1970 by SÄPO

Then in 2008 it finally became “legal”: See here and here

The program has since expanded immensely

They’ve been promoting neutrality, while arming the world

And despite the Swedish model / the Nordic model is continuing to be promoted,cracks in the facade have finally become visible to some that have been pushing it as a cure-all

Again, there is the Assange story and how Sweden treated him

Not to mention the CIA and NATO connections

Or the accusations that Swedish authorities are separating innocent families

Also, please never speak of the ongoing gender war, and how by law, Swedish men are 2nd class citizens

Even homeless people in Sweden are forced to pay mandatory TV-license fees to fund the state owned propaganda machine

Chillingly, Sweden is a stalkers paradise, where no privacy remains

So yes, of course a criminal like Eric Holder would promote and praise a system that completely ignores human rights, is involved in social engineering on a massive scale, and promotes a “soft tyranny” to the extent that British author Ronald Huntford in the late 70’s realized that Sweden had fulfilled the role of the Orwellian state that George Orwell predicted in his book, 1984.

Sweden European flag

By Lucian Vâlsan | From: AVoiceForMen.com

On December 20, on AVfM Radio Program, a caller said that men and women are treated more equally in Europe and mentioned Sweden and Switzerland as the prominent examples.

Although I am sure that it was not the caller’s intention to spread disinformation, at least as far as Sweden is concerned, I beg to differ on that statement big time.

As a Swedish speaker and a connoisseur of the misandric matriarchal society of the gender utopia called Sweden, I took the liberty to look through the Swedish laws and translate some of them in order to make the readers get an idea of how it is to be a man in Sweden.

Swedish feminists on the warpath against hate

Here is more on Swedish State-Feminism and the theater groups advocating murder and violence against men.

Sweden Blood

Some of you might remember the infamous Swedish film clip where a group of Swedish feminists calling themselves S.C.U.M Sweden,  produced and posted a video on Youtube  depicting the point-blank shooting and murder of a man reading a newspaper. Read more about it here. Now another video have been posted on Youtube. This time they even threaten the swedish prime minister. This time it´s another radical left wing feminist group who call themselves “Skabbteatern” (Scabies theater) who are the producers. This new masterpiece is called “Du är en fitta, din fitta” (You are a cunt you cunt). They do love the C word, those feminists.

Some questions about SCUM

This article indeed shows how far it has gone in Sweden when it comes to State-Feminism.

From: AVoiceForMen.com

Late last night/early this morning I was contacted by Eigil Söderin, the editor of the Swedish newspaper ETC. The purpose of Söderin’s contact was to ask interview questions about recent activism from AVfM that centered on a controversial Swedish video which depicted a group of young women murdering an innocent man and celebrating their actions with dance and orgasmic joy.

The questions were relevant, if a little superficial, so I thought they deserved to be answered. As I don’t know when the interview will be published, or under what editorial “flavor,” I thought it best to share the unedited questions and answers here with AVfM readers.

Fun With Swedish SCUM

While the murder is plainly staged, the sadistic glee has every appearance of being genuine. The plain endorsement of murder is also unambiguous. The portrayed murder is followed by the ecstatic giggling of a handful of other females, and an impromptu dance celebration. The woman who apparently shoots a newspaper-reading man appears to have an spontaneous orgasm following the killing. A minor discontinuity in the video shows where most of the orgasm was edited out. Killing for no apparent reason is i guess nothing to hide from the public, but dampening your panties over it apparently is.

Swedish toymaker publishes ’gender-neutral’ children’s Christmas catalogue

From: RT.com

One of the largest toy chains in Sweden published a gender-neutral Christmas catalogue, which pictured boys playing with dolls and girls holding toy machine guns. The move has reignited a debate in Sweden over the proper place of gender roles.

Top Toy has produced children’s Christmas catalogues in Denmark and Sweden for both Toys R Us and BR. Though the catalogues’ page layouts are the same in both countries, the gender of the pictured kids is reversed in the Swedish edition.

In Sweden, a debate over whether gender equality has gone too far

By Nathalie Rothschild | csmonitor.com

 

As gender-neutral policies are promoted more broadly in Sweden’s schools – including the use of a neutral pronoun to refer to boys and girls – some Swedes are pushing back.

Sweden has a longstanding reputation as an egalitarian country with a narrow gender gap. But a national debate about gender equality – particularly as it plays out in schools – has revealed substantial dissatisfaction, with some Swedes feeling it has gone too far.

Rousing controversy now is the issue of gender pedagogy, a concept that emerged in the early 2000s and typically involves challenging gender stereotypes in learning material and in avoiding treating male and female pupils in a stereotypical manner. Proponents believe such a perspective should infuse day-to-day work at schools rather than be taught as a separate subject. But what has sharpened the debate in Sweden has been the argument that schools should also be gender neutral, giving children the opportunity to define themselves as neither male nor female if they wish.

In 2008, the Swedish Department of Education appointed the Delegation for Equality in Schools, which made the issue of gender equality central to the Swedish education system. The government spent 110 million Swedish crowns ($16.3 million) on promoting equality in schools along the lines of school laws that stipulate that teachers must actively counteract gender stereotypes and promote equality.

Yet when the Green Party recently proposed placing gender pedagogues at every preschool in Stockholm, the capital, they were accused of promoting an extremist feminist agenda and told they were not reflecting parents’ interests. And when it emerged that some preschools have banished references to children’s genders, it sparked a national furor, revealing that while most Swedes support gender equality, not all are on board with the idea of gender-neutral child-rearing.

Are gender studies an ’elite’ concept?

Kristina Henkel, a gender expert specializing in equality in schools, disputes the argument that gender pedagogy and neutrality are being foisted on Swedes. “Sweden has a long tradition of working with equality and this has had strong support among politicians,” she says, and adds that “the question of gender neutrality, or of everyone having equal rights despite their gender, has also been driven by activists at the grassroots level.”

But Elise Claeson, a columnist and a former equality expert at the Swedish Confederation of Professions, disagrees. “I have long participated in debates with gender pedagogues and they act like an elite,” she says. “They tend to be well-educated, live in big cities, and have contacts in the media, and they clearly despise traditional people – that is, the … heterosexuals living in nuclear families.”

Ms. Claeson has been a vocal critic of the word “hen,” a new, gender-neutral pronoun that was recently included in the online version of the National Encyclopedia. Around the same time, Sweden’s first gender-neutral children’s book was published. The author, Jesper Lundqvist, uses hen throughout his book, completely avoiding han and hon, the Swedish words for him and her.

Claeson believes that the word hen can be harmful to young children because, she says, it can be confusing for them to receive contradicting messages about their genders in school, at home, and in society at large. “It is important to have your gender confirmed to you as a child. This does not limit children; it makes them confident about their identity…. Children ought to be allowed to mature slowly and naturally. As adults we can choose to expand and change our gender identities.”

But many proponents of gender neutrality believe that freeing children from expectations tied to gender roles, at least in school, gives them more choices. “Children ought to be allowed to be children, but we should not cement them in roles that we carry with us from the past,” says Lotta Rajalin, director of Egalia, a Stockholm preschool which opened in 2010.

Egalia received widespread attention for banishing gendered pronouns and applying for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transexual (LGBT) certification from the Swedish Federation for LGBT Rights. At Egalia, everything from the books the children read to the toys they play with has been carefully selected to avoid stereotypical depictions of gender and relationships. When Egalia students, who are between one and six years old, play house, they are as likely to act out the roles of “mommy, daddy, child” as “daddy, daddy, adopted child.” A key policy at the school is to avoid words like boy and girl. Instead, teachers address the children by their first names or as friends.

Egalia has both been hailed as a milestone in the fight for equality and slammed as a cult-like institution that is brainwashing children and promoting a radical feminist agenda.

Society catching up with the state

Though it may sound eccentric, Egalia’s approach is not really a fringe one. Ms. Rajalin, who is also a director of six other preschools, says that she is only following directives set out by the government. The Swedish national curriculum for preschools, published in 1998, states: “Preschools should counteract traditional gender patterns and gender roles. In preschools, girls and boys should have the same opportunities to test and develop abilities and interests without being limited by stereotypical gender roles.”

Ingrid Lindskog of the Swedish National Agency for Education says that striving for equality should be integral to schooling. “Equality issues should be weaved into the lessons. It should inform how teachers plan their classes, put together groups, and how they react to pupils treating each other badly – if a boy oppresses a girl, for instance, or the other way around,” she says. And it is not just preschools who are obliged to integrate gender awareness into their pedagogy. “All Swedish schools have a responsibility to counteract traditional gender patterns,” says Ms. Lindskog.

Last fall, nearly 200 teachers gathered in Stockholm to discuss how to avoid “traditional gender patterns” in schools. The conference was part of a research project run by the National Agency for Education and supported by the Delegation for Equality in Schools. This approach is now being emulated abroad.

“I work with these issues in Finland and Norway and it is clear to me that they have been inspired by the Swedish preschool – and school curricula,” says Ms. Henkel, the gender expert. “In the United States, something called anti-oppressive pedagogy, which aims for inclusiveness, has been practiced since the 1980s. So these kinds of ideas exist in many countries, but here the state has worked hard to promote Sweden as a role model nation.”

But Henkel also insists that gender equality is a rights issue that cannot simply be left to the state to handle. Instead, she says, it requires the active involvement of citizens. “Rights are not something we receive and then don’t have to fight for. This is about a redistribution of power, and for that initiative and action are needed, not just fancy legislation.”

“Gender-Neutral” Pre-School in Sweden Accused of Mind Control

Assange: “Sweden is The Saudi Arabia of Feminism”

Mr Assange said he regarded himself as a victim of Left-wing radicalism. “Sweden is the Saudi Arabia of feminism,” he said. “I fell into a hornets’ nest of revolutionary feminism.”

Mr Assange claimed that one of the women who said she had been sexually assaulted by him took a “trophy photo” of him lying naked in her bed.

He said the woman, identified in court documents as Miss A, 31, had invited him to stay in her empty flat in August when he visited Stockholm to give a lecture. By his account, she returned home early and insisted he sleep in her bed. “We went to bed, and things went on from there.”

She later alleged that although he had reluctantly used a condom at first, he then appeared to have ripped it. Unprotected sex without a partner’s consent can be a crime in Sweden.

A full extradition hearing is due in London on February 7th. The US government is understood to be investigating whether he can be charged with espionage.

Swedish military lion gets the snip after women troops protest

The proud lion of Sweden’s Nordic Battlegroup’s coat of arms has been emasculated because a group of female soldiers lodged a complaint with the European Court of Justice.

Christian Braunstein, from the Tradition Commission of the Swedish Army, said: “We were forced to cut the lion’s willy off with the aid of a computer.”

Although the army was happy to make the changes in the interests of gender equality, the artist who designed the insignia was less than pleased.

“A heraldic lion is a powerful and stately figure with its genitalia intact and I cannot approve an edited image.

“The army lacks knowledge about heraldry. Once upon a time coats of arms containing lions without genitalia were given to those who betrayed the Crown.” Vladimir Sagerlund told the Göteborgs-Posten.

Swedish school bans ‘him’ and ‘her’ in bid to stop children falling into gender stereotypes

A pre-school in Sweden has decided to stop calling children ‘him’ or ‘her’ in a bid to avoid gender stereotypes.

The Egalia preschool, in the Sodermalm district of Stockholm, has made the decision as part of the country efforts to engineer equality between the sexes from childhood.

As well as the decision to stop using the words, the taxpayer-funded school also carefully plans the colour and placement of toys and the choice of books to assure they do not fall into stereotypes.

Equality for all: Children at the Egalia preschool, in the Sodermalm district of Stockholm, play with neutral toys as part of the school's 'genderless' agendaEquality for all: Children at the Egalia preschool, in the Sodermalm district of Stockholm, play with neutral toys as part of the school’s ‘genderless’ agenda

The school opened last year and is on a mission to break down gender roles – a core mission in the national curriculum for Swedish pre-schools.

The option to implement the rules is underpinned by a theory that society gives boys an unfair edge.

‘Society expects girls to be girlie, nice and pretty and boys to be manly, rough and outgoing,’ says Jenny Johnsson, a 31-year-old teacher. 

‘Egalia gives them a fantastic opportunity to be whoever they want to be.’

At the school, boys and girls play together with a toy kitchen, waving plastic utensils and pretending to cook. One boy hides inside the toy stove, his head popping out through a hole.

Lego bricks and other building blocks are intentionally placed next to the kitchen, to make sure the children draw no mental barriers between cooking and construction.

Meanwhile, nearly all the children’s books deal with homosexual couples, single parents or adopted children. There are no ‘Snow White,’ ‘Cinderella’ or other fairy tales.

Director Lotta Rajalin notes that Egalia places a special emphasis on fostering an environment tolerant of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. 

Rajalin says the staff also try to help the children discover new ideas when they play.

‘A concrete example could be when they’re playing ‘house’ and the role of the mom already is taken and they start to squabble,’ she says. ‘Then we suggest two moms or three moms and so on.’

Egalia’s methods are controversial, with Rajalin claiming the staff have received threats from racists apparently upset about the preschool’s use of black dolls.

But she says that there’s a long waiting list for admission, and that only one couple has pulled a child out of the school.

Jukka Korpi, 44, says he and his wife chose Egalia ‘to give our children all the possibilities based on who they are and not on their gender.’

Staff at the school try to shed masculine and feminine references from their speech, including the pronouns him or her – ‘han’ or ‘hon’ in Swedish. Instead, they’ve have adopted the genderless ‘hen’.

Making their own decisions: The school carefully plans the colour and placement of toys to assure they do not fall into stereotypesMaking their own decisions: The school carefully plans the colour and placement of toys to assure they do not fall into stereotypes

‘We use the word “Hen” for example when a doctor, police, electrician or plumber or such is coming to the kindergarten,’ Rajalin says. 

‘We don’t know if it’s a he or a she so we just say “Hen is coming around 2pm”; then the children can imagine both a man or a woman. This widens their view.’ 

Jay Belsky, a child psychologist at the University of California, Davis, said he’s not aware of any other school like Egalia, and he questioned whether it was the right way to go. 

‘The kind of things that boys like to do – run around and turn sticks into swords – will soon be disapproved of,’ he said. 

‘So gender neutrality at its worst is emasculating maleness.’

“Gender-Neutral” Pre-School in Sweden Accused of Mind Control

By Jenny Soffel | independent.co.uk

Egalia’s playground is designed to avoid gender bias

Staff at Swedish kindergarten told not to refer to children as ‘him’ or ‘her’ to avoid stereotyping

At the Egalia pre-school, staff avoid using words such as “him” or “her” and address the 33 youngsters as “friends” rather than girls and boys. From the colour and placement of toys to the choice of books, every detail is planned to make sure the children are not exposed to sexual stereotypes.

The taxpayer-funded pre-school, which opened last year in the liberal Sodermalm district of Stockholm, is among the most radical examples of Sweden’s efforts to engineer equality between the sexes. Breaking down gender roles is a core mission in the national curriculum for pre-schools, underpinned by the theory that even in highly egalitarian-minded Sweden, society gives boys an unfair edge.

Many pre-schools have hired “gender pedagogues” to help staff identify language and behaviour that risk reinforcing stereotypes. Some parents, however, worry that things have gone too far. An obsession with obliterating gender roles, they say, could make the children confused and ill-prepared to face the world outside kindergarten.

“Different gender roles aren’t problematic as long as they are equally valued,” says Tanja Bergkvist, a 37-year-old blogger and a leading voice against what she calls “gender madness” in Sweden. Those bent on shattering gender roles “say there’s a hierarchy where everything that boys do is given higher value, but I wonder who decides that it has higher value,” she says. “Why is there higher value in playing with cars?”

At Egalia – it means “equality” – boys and girls play together with a toy kitchen, waving plastic utensils and pretending to cook. One boy hides inside the toy stove, his head popping out through a hole. Lego bricks are placed next to the kitchen, to make sure the children draw no mental barriers between cooking and building.


Director: Lotta Rajalin says the staff try to help the children discover new ideas when they play

The school’s director, Lotta Rajalin, says Egalia fosters an environment tolerant of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. From a bookcase she pulls out a story about two male giraffes who are sad to be childless until they come across an abandoned crocodile egg. Nearly all the children’s books deal with homosexual couples, single parents or adopted children.

Egalia’s methods are controversial; some say they amount to mind control. Ms Rajalin says the staff have received threats from people apparently upset about the pre-school’s use of black dolls. But she says that there is a long waiting list for admission and only one couple has taken their child out of the school.

Sweden has promoted women’s rights for decades, and more recently was a pioneer in Europe in allowing gay and lesbian couples to legalise their partnerships and adopt children. Gender studies permeate academic life in Sweden. Ms Bergkvist noted on her blog that the state-funded Swedish Science Council had granted £50,000 for a post-doctoral fellowship aimed at analysing “the trumpet as a symbol of gender”.

Jay Belsky, a child psychologist at the University of California, said he is unaware of any other school like Egalia and questioned whether it was the right way to go. “The kind of things that boys like to do – run around and turn sticks into swords – will soon be disapproved of,” he said. “So gender neutrality at its worst is emasculating maleness.”
