The City is ours! shouted the Swedes!
After five nights of watching rampaging immigrant gangs (largely from Africa and the Middle East) torching cars and destroying property, and the police taking a non-confrontational attitude toward the lawbreakers, the Swedish people are rising up!
There is hope for Western civilization in Europe after all!
Here is the story from the Fria Tider (thanks to reader Paul for making my day!):
Stockholm. Faced by another night of terror at the hands of predominantly immigrant rioters, Swedes grown tired of the police’s inability to put an end to the unrest took to the streets Friday night to defend their neighborhoods.
The vigilantes were described as a motley crew of homeowners and concerned citizens, as well as neo-Nazi activists and football hooligans.
What did police do initially? They began aggressively rounding up the Swedes!
In the Stockholm suburb of Tumba the police decided to abandon their earlier non-intervention policy as a large group of police officers rounded up and dispersed a group of vigilantes trying to fend off rioters.
The decision to round up vigilantes while, according to Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving, ”doing as little as possible” to stop rioters, met with a wave of protests in various social media and on the Internet. Representatives of some vigilante groups contacted Fria Tider to give their view of last night’s events.
Here is what one of the defenders of Stockholm said:
It makes me sick to see the police clamp down on us Swedes with full force and without warning, using nightsticks and tear gas, while they don’t do a damn thing about the immigrants. We are only trying to help maintain order, while the immigrants set cars and buildings on fire, said a young man who wished to remain anonymous.
After a huge public outcry, the police did let Swedish patrols go after the Muslim immigrants:
Later during the night the police appear to have relaxed their attitude to the presence of vigilante groups in the streets. The police is reported to have stepped aside and watched as a huge crowd of vigilantes chased immigrants through the streets of Tumba, chanting ”the city is ours” and ”we will do what the police can’t do”. Several independent sources testify about vigilantes managing to scare away groups of rioters torching wastepaper baskets.
Be sure to see a ludicrous second story at Fria Tider where owners of burned cars were being ticketed!
For new readers: We have been writing about the downfall of Sweden since 2007 as the welfare nation opened its doors to Muslims from North and East Africa, and the Middle East. Here is one post about how “refugees” are dashing to Sweden so they don’t have to work and another where Muslim youths say the Swedes are wimpy.

Send this post out far and wide please! ***Update*** You sure did, this post has been seen by thousands and thousands around the world in the last two days! But, I have seen no mention of Swedes rising up in the mainstream media, have you?
Update May 30th: NYT mentions Swedish riots, but no mention of Swedes fighting back (of course).
Update June 6th: Researchers to study root cause of riots, unlikely to mention Islam (here).
