I must admit I have been worrying about how it would be possible to wake up our leftist friends. Bring out another Hunter Biden laptop that put’s the President in Putin’s leach. Enough to get a president impeached and removed. The media response: Zzzzzz

There didn’t seem to be anything that would move the needle, as media can ignore anything. Until Kabul.

Could you imagine any worse optics for leaving Afghanistan? If the world is being freed, that includes Afgahnistan. If the US has to leave, why not let Biden do it, and mess it up and then some?

Even the helicopter over the embassy, crowning Biden’s Saigon moment. And the cherry on top, the media’s blatant hipocracy. Anyone with two functioning brain cells can see the difference in media response, had Trump been president.

I have been going over Twitter and Facebook today to see the response in Sweden where I live. For context, 90% of Swedes hate Trump, at least. Trust in media is high.

But something happened today, people are noticing. Especially at Twitter, some try to blame Trump, but people is not having it.

So, as it is impossible to mess up Afghanistan as bad as Biden did, there are too many smart people even in Biden’s cabinette, to allow that to happen. It’s far more likely that it is scripted, as in ”you are watching a movie”.

Makes you wonder what happens next, this has been one of the best days for me, in a long time. I had some great debates on Twitter and Facebook today, where I actually felt like I could talk to people on the other side and see eye to eye. You have to be nice, of course. I don’t want to gloat. I just want them to consider more options than the media narrative.

Great post, Swedenfren.

Do you have any insight as to why your country did not lockdown or make everybody wear masks, while all your fellow European governments demanded it?

Also, is the Swedish media and your government trying to scare the people with talk about the Delta variants and other variants?

QforSweden [S] 11 points ago +11 / -0

Thank you. The lockdowns are against the law in Sweden. These are special laws that require two governments and an election between to change. Also our version of Dr Fauci, Anders Tegnell is in my opinion not clued into the Cabal plan. He is taking the road of science from before Covid. His response to Covid was the one of a medicical pandemic instead of a political one. He seems mostly surprised and trying to keep up.

The media is going all in on the fear. Now it’s the many infected by the Delta variant that got their attention. Surprisingly there is absolutely no articles about the fact that only one person has died from Covid in the last month. Most people trust the media and the vaccine. Some of them are starting to show nazi tendencies, wanting to punish the wax deniers.

Great questions, seems on one hand Sweden was slightly based, but on several other hands, the opposite.

Used to work for a Swedish company with great people, traveled there several times and always enjoyed myself.

Cue the video of Biden saying Afghanistan is not comparable to Saigon with two images showing the exact same thing.

Worse optics will be is some of those terrorists make their way through our open border to commit terrorist activity in the Homeland around 9/11.

It would just be blamed on us.

I don't think the tipping point will be reached until the average person in the developed world is personally exposed to tyranny. Watching things happen to other people in the middle east through the lens of the media is too impersonal.

QforSweden [S] 12 points ago +12 / -0

Just to make sure we mean the same thing; the tipping point is the day it’s start going the other way. Swedes didn’t start loving Donald Trump today, but something changed. And we know this isn’t the last bad news for Biden. It will only get worse, I expect the economy to collapse for starters.

Vests123 9 points ago +9 / -0

I have noticed the same thing...I know a few people who voted Biden (unbelievable, I know) and they are very upset about what is happening and blaming Biden, not POTUS Trump.

You may be right about the turning point starting to happen...finally.

Fair point.

Anyone with two functioning brain cells can see the difference

I think I’ve found the problem with your thesis.

Yep, Kabul might be it. Most leftists might be shaking their heads wondering WTF.

MisprisionIsEvil 3 points ago +3 / -0

As long as the media remains no more will awaken.

Deadeye 3 points ago +3 / -0

It’s that whole being nice part that always gets in the way for me.

QforSweden [S] 3 points ago +3 / -0

I think it’s important. Remember ”deplorables”, how did that work out?

numina18 2 points ago +2 / -0

Something is brewing, and it's going to be GOOD!

Thanks fren, needed something good.

I can tell you I have friends on the ground in Afghanistan. I asked if it was as bad as the media shows us here. He said for once that they aren't lying.

Only thing g I can think of is deep state put the current government and we are removing them.

Good news: Trust in the media is (in Sweden and elsewhere) actually not that high:


QforSweden [S] 2 points ago +2 / -0

So 50-50? Interesting. The big problem in Sweden is ”the culture of Silence”, it was just now revealed that civil servants wanting to have a career stay silent even on reporting criminality done by immigrants.

Critisism of our failed immigration policies are largely viewed as racist. People are afraid to express opinions like ”crime done by immigrants is a burden to society”, or that there is a limit to how many immigrants we can support. Immigrants get free housing, clothes and financial support. There was even a case where a man with three wives were bought two apartments to house his big family.

Bobby777 1 point ago +1 / -0

Are there any anti-immigration political parties in Sweden?

QforSweden [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes, there is SD, The Sweden Democrats. As you may have guessed they are openely being called nazis, fascists and racists by everyone including the prime minister. And everyone is starting to realise that they have been right all along.

Bobby777 1 point ago +1 / -0

How big are they as a party?

QforSweden [S] 2 points ago +2 / -0

In one recent poll they became second biggest at 23%. At the moment we have eight parties. There are now two parties claiming that they are willing to work with them, which probably would form a majority in the next election. I don’t trust them however, they may jump ship after the election.

In our last election they were at first the biggest party at 27%, but then the election software crashed and we saw no results for 90 minutes. When the machines got up and running again, they had lost their lead and the Green party was miraculously saved. Sounds familiar?

Bobby777 2 points ago +2 / -0

Wow, never heard of that! Thanks for the info :)

What happens when American blood begins to flow, there's wives & children still there.

QforSweden [S] 4 points ago +4 / -0

If it happens, the awakening will speed up. I belive however this is all part of Trump’s deal with the Taliban. You can’t make a deal without offering something to them. He gave them Afghanistan, all they had to do was wait. And I can’t belive Trump would sacrifice American patriots in his deal.
