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.

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

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.

Are there any anti-immigration political parties in Sweden?

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.
