Vägen till oppositionen – Angry Foreigner (minidokumentär)

This is the angle I use,
normally, when I’m recording. Hello everyone. I’ve been asked
to do this video many times. Too many times.
For too many years. I’ve always disliked the concept, because
when reviewing the material carefully, it feels like you’re growing
cancer in your own brain. It hurts, really.
This is painful. So if you’re in any way
allergic to idiocy, this video will give you panic attacks.
Trigger warning! A big improvement would
be getting rid of the leftist dominated oversensitivity,
as I call it. The PC culture, simply. The road to opposition Angry Foreigner Angry Foreigner started his
Youtube channel in 2014. Today he is one of Sweden’s biggest social
critics on Youtube, with 233,000 subscribers. But why did he start, and how does
he view the societal development, but mainly, what would it take for
him to become the Happy Foreigner? From what I’ve heard,
I have a colorful presence in the minds of the
Swedish general public. So how one becomes an angry foreigner
seems to be a common question that people want to get their claws in
and figure out, so to speak. I think I stand out as a political pundit
in the Swedish debate climate today. I’ve noticed that there is
a purity culture in this country, that covers both
minor and major issues. It’s a superficial way of thinking, where
people are dismissed not only on bad opinions, but also on bad choice of words, language style, fashion sense, whatever. I noticed this when
right-wing proponents try to make sound
points in public debates, for example Mauricio Rojas,
or Tobias Billström. When he tried to talk about volumes (of
immigration), before the refugee crisis. Regardless of how nicely they worded it,
how nicely they presented it, they were still dismissed as racist. The PC psychosis and hysteria
was all-encompassing. So I noticed that it doesn’t work to word
it nicely. People already tried that. It doesn’t work to play
fair, to beg and grovel. We have seen what happens to
people who try that, they are simply placed as an offering on the altar of PC culture.
Nothing positive came out of it. So as I see it, this purity mentality in the
middle class, is Sweden’s biggest problem. They are the ones
enforcing this PC culture. By being disinterested and complacent due
to peace-damage. By practicing snobbery. Immigration is only one
symptom of underlying problems in Swedish society tied
to political correctness. This group mentality
that often backfires. I’ve noticed many taboos,
unnecessary taboos in Swedish society, many things which can’t be discussed,
but immigration is the biggest one. It is a much bigger
issue than people think. It isn’t just about who
you’ll have as neighbors. In the bigger picture,
immigration policy is population policy. And if we go with “mass migration”,
we’ll have a overpopulation policy. And overpopulation generally doesn’t
affect infrastructure positively. It was only a matter of time
before we all the things we’ve seen now happened, even if the problems
were visible way back then. As an immigrant… well, immigrant
isn’t really an identity, in my view. It is something you did, once. It doesn’t
really decide what type of person you are. You’re still a person regardless of that.
And you can have any political view. I’ve always thought that the
welfare state and the Swedish model was something to be proud of.
It’s a positive idea. But the whole concept of welfare systems
is challenged, when you have this mass immigration which neither benefits the
immigrants themselves nor the Swedes. It’s not a good life
you get in Sweden, with dependency on handouts,
living in ghetto areas… Your kids… I mean second
generation immigrants are more prone to crime than their
parents, as we’ve seen in studies. It’s not a nice lot in life given
to immigrants, when they are treated as election fodder, essentially,
which is what has been happening. So the immigration policy we’ve had
is not really immigrant friendly. It’s a bit like spoiling your
child, as a parent, which usually results in
pretty nasty children. It creates nasty situations. It’s not nice
to be too nice to people you care about. Immigration is always a lottery. Either you have open borders,
and take in just about everyone, or you don’t, and have some limit,
which you have to set to some value. How do we decide this limit?
It should be depending on what benefits the people already
here, and those who want to come here. There has to be a balance there. If we have this brain dead open
borders policy, like the left tries to impose on all immigrants, by saying
they can’t talk about these problems, then Sweden would have to
accept around 70 million people. That’s the number of refugees
in the world, as a whole. To the benefit of
absolutely no one. It wouldn’t benefit anyone
who wanted to come here. It’s a meaningless
identity policy to have. It’s true, but if Sweden didn’t
have capacity in the 90s, one could have gone to another
country which did, as an immigrant. That’s the whole point of it. Or there are other measures one could take,
if there really were no other options. That has always
been my view of it. I mean, I have relatives who weren’t
allowed to come to Sweden, during the war. It’s nothing I’ve resented Sweden for, or felt
like there was some racist complex around. It’s just… if it’s not
possible, it’s not possible. It’s more a question of
infrastructure than of morals. I would like to see more
immigrants to break loose from the stereotypes being
imposed on them by society. Not only leftist stereotypes,
from the leftist nobility. Often from Swedish middle class, trying to
lecture immigrants on what to think and feel. There’s also stereotypes being
imposed by ghetto complexes, alienation syndromes you are
forced to grow up with as an immigrant, where you try to
keep other immigrants down. I’ve had many complaints
and testimonies of this. Immigrants in poor suburban schools who
try to do well, try to pull their own weight, are bullied by other immigrants who find
them ridiculous for wanting good grades, or for respecting the police,
maybe even wanting to join the police. There’s this bullying culture between immigrants.
That’s the ghetto culture, basically. It has these confines
you have to stay inside. I would like to tear those down. That was the point of using
“An angry blatte speaks” as my stage name. To break people’s expectations
of how immigrants are supposed to behave,
or what it means to be an immigrant. My point is that we are people
like everyone else, so it’s fine to be a conservative, right-wing,
or think that we should have a reasonable immigration policy,
instead of an unreasonable one. – What were your thoughts on this
choice of word, “blatte”? At least from my perspective as a Swede,
it has a pretty negative ring to it. – Blatte, it’s a weird word,
because I also had the perception that it was
a negative slang word, to refer to “chaos blattar”, “respect
blattar”, as they are often called. Everyone knows the kind of stereotype
you mean when you say “respect-blatte”. But the word has been
neutralized over the years. There were some
confusion when I made my first video. People didn’t
really get my stage name. I was critical in my video,
where I spoke about the difference between
immigrants and stereotypes. A lot of people don’t get it.
But my point was that it is a bad word. The word refers to a
social phenomenon, which occurs with social democratic
alienation policies. You get these people who feel
they are not part of society, and want to be as annoying as
possible towards that society. This negative stereotype
has limiting effects on society which
people don’t realize. It has limiting effects on
other immigrants, mocking them when they don’t want
to live up to the stereotype. It has very negative effects
on the immigrants themselves. So I wanted to take on this
label, to destroy it. To show that you can be
anything as an immigrant. This purity complex…
to be good at diversity for real. By not defining diversity
as something ethnic, and instead allow
different perspectives. I think debates are suffocated
too easily in Sweden. And it’s not just that
you get kicked out of a venue because you
want to host a debate. It can also be decentralized.
People do this themselves. People privately distance
themselves from controversial individuals or don’t
want to take a stand. They don’t dare to
be controversial… And it doesn’t take a lot
to be controversial in Sweden. Maybe we should
be more controversial. That’s what I want to remove.
I want to make people feel comfortable. That’s why I use a lot
of humor in my videos, because if there’s anything a
constipated people needs, it’s to laugh. That’s important. I try to teach
Swedes that it’s okay to laugh. – Could you walk us
through the process, from start to finish,
on how you make an episode. – There’s a bit of a demon paradox here. People often don’t understand how
much work goes into this, since I make it look easy. Because this is my actual job.
This is what I do for a living, mainly. It takes several days.
Several days to research a topic. My research is continuous though,
I always take in new information. So a script often comes about
during a very long time. But finishing a script takes a few days.
Shooting it, anywhere from 3 to 5 hours. Then editing. When I shoot,
I act the words I’ve written down. I try to catch it verbatim, because
I choose certain words for a reason. So I have to write it, make it sound
vivid, choosing the best takes, and it takes a few days to
edit it and add sources. I do everything manually.
So between one and two weeks, depending on how long the video
is, and the topic. – How do you finance
your operation? – I would never be able to do this if I had
a regular day job. It’s too time consuming. Many different
skills go into this. The largest donation
stream is from Patreon. I also use Swish.
And I have Subscribe Star. It’s people’s donations that keep this running.
I couldn’t have kept doing it otherwise. It says a lot when you see the establishment
going after this line of work. SVT (Swedish State media)
calling people “Swish wh0res”. It’s pretty brave to call your
competition wh0res, I think. Since I started this channel in
2014, I’ve seen a very positive development,
regarding the debate atmosphere. We can see the Overton window
being dismantled and loosening up. This is due to all the alternatives
popping up and growing, social media,
a more free and open internet. But simultaneously it’s a bit
scary, because the mainstream has sniffed this out, and are going
after the free and open internet. They try to censor Youtube, force
them to hire something like an editor. Try to make Youtube
a media company, rather than a search engine
making content available. Article 13 is another example of this. The
Swedish Union of Journalists lobbed for it. So we see different attempts at
restrictions of the alternative market. At the same time, the positive
development is partially built on deceit. We see that mainstream media, everything
they used to brand people as racists over, they’ve taken and turned into
their own sensationalist headlines. So now Aftonbladet and SVT write about
how the majority of sexcrime are imported. This was enough to be branded
negatively just a few years back. It was completely
unmentionable then. We see how the major media outlets have been
forced to go against their own core values, that they have been trying to enforce for
so long, just to survive on the market. This is a very positive development.
This shows that people have more
power than they think. They can force large media
companies to their knees just by focusing
their attention elsewhere. But still, this deceit is
problematic, because by not having to take
responsibility for their past, means that the same
mistake can be made again. And I don’t see many trying to hold
the large media companies accountable for their hypocrisy.
Because it is damn hypocrisy. For so many years they upheld
this PC culture, and then try to make money off the same
taboos they themselves created. Taboos which have ruined lives,
and hindered political decisions which could have saved thousands from
dying in hospitals or being raped. We shouldn’t underestimate the
risks of advocacy of bad opinions. And the worst advocacy has
come from the mainstream, that’s why the
alternatives have grown. There have been these blind
spots, that we in the alternative sphere
have taken advantage of. By talking about these blind spots it has
been possible to get enormous attention. So when they cry about
their competition, it’s competition they created themselves,
by their own sheer incompetence. In 2014 we were few, but during the years
more and more players have entered the field. It’s a positive development,
because if there’s one thing Sweden needs,
it’s diversity of media. There has been a very narrow leftist liberal Overton
window, in which all big media companies act. There are many different
ways to report on reality, so there are many aspects
which have been missed. We see in USA that it’s completely natural
for both the left and right to own media. But someone like Tucker Carlson on
Fox News could never exist in Sweden. It would be like giving Jimmy Åkesson
his own talk show. Unthinkable. This moral panic prevents
genuinely good culture, and genuine diversity,
from developing. The more people there are who
take a stand, and interact with each other, the better
the alternatives become. – So, you like Jackson?
– Yeah, he’s good. He’s good,
even though he’s a ped0. – It doesn’t detract
from the music. – Everyone in Hollywood are ped0s
nowadays, so whatever. Can’t escape it. (inaudible) look at House
