The plan is to replace standard Swedish with “migrant-inclusive accent.” And why not? Muslims come to Western countries with a ready-made model of society and government (sharia) which they believe to be superior to what we have here, and they work to institute it. Sweden didn’t even put up a fight. Now the rape capital of Europe, they laid down and offered up their young girls as a sacrifice to their new overlords.
But that will not be enough. The Swedes will be teaching Arabic in the schools in no short order. It will be mandatory. Arabic is more than a language. It is explicated the language of Islam, so in that sense it is part of the Islamic religious imperial project. As Mark Steyn explained , Islam advances through the Arabic language. And you go all kinds of places that aren’t in the Arab world now, like Pakistan, Indonesia, Central Asia, the Balkans, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Canada and the United States, and you will hear imams preaching in Arabic. Arabic is not just another language like French or Italian, it is the spearhead of an ideological project that is deeply opposed to the West.
State-owned company Lernia on Tuesday launched a campaign to replace the standard form of Swedish with one that’s more inclusive of migrants.The ‘new standard Swedish’, developed in collaboration with linguist Mikael Parkvall, mixes together accents and dialects that are commonly spoken in Sweden.
According to the staffing and training company, the new dialect better reflects Sweden in 2017 and the company hopes it will replace the neutral form of Swedish in recorded messages and on answering machines.
Training Manager at Lernia, Ina Tzacheva, told Östra Småland News there’s a labour shortage in Sweden and Europe and so it’s important that people with non-standard accents don’t feel excluded from the jobs market.
Expressing concern that some people are being excluded from work because of the way they speak, she told the newspaper: “We want to focus on how a person’s accent is not reflective of their skills and expertise … We cannot exclude people just because they do not speak in the same way as we do.”
Lernia hopes that businesses and organisations will use ‘new standard Swedish’ on their answering machines, and that it will become the default voice in recorded messages used in, for example, elevators. “We are looking for organisations, companies and sites throughout Kalmar County who want to help modernise the sound of Sweden,” said Ms Tzacheva.
“We are both proud and pleased that we were asked to be the first company to use the new Standard Swedish. As an organisation that is active in criticising [societal] norms in several areas, this now adds a new dimension, namely how we sound when we welcome new and existing members on our switchboard.”
Staff librarian at Stockholm University, Birgitta Lindgren Hellmark, said the institution hopes recordings in the new Standard Swedish will “increase people’s feeling of belonging regardless of pronunciation.
“In addition, [we hope the dialect] inspires conversation about similarities and differences, and why we so often allow differences to divide us even when they are irrelevant.”
On Flashback, the internet’s largest Swedish language forum, reactions to the new Standard Swedish are largely negative.
CaptainNemo wrote: “Just listened and a shudder of discomfort … instead of a uniform pronunciation [the new Standard Swedish] migrates between different dialects and even foreign accents.”
Other people found the new form of Swedish more sinister. Appearing to refer to a government-backed campaign which told native Swedes to integrate with migrants, one user said:
“We are Sweden, you will be integrated. Resistance is futile.”
“So now they abolish the only national form of Swedish. It does not exist. Things are beginning to resemble the Soviet system in which everything that has gone before in history is erased,” another post read.

If you want to know HOW it all began for Sweden (and other western countries) to turn into a 3rd world country:
In The Culture of Critique and other writings Kevin MacDonald points to the fact that Jews and the organized Jewish community were a critical necessary condition for the rise of multiculturalism in the West. In Chapter 7, on Jewish involvement in shaping immigration policy, he focused mainly on the U.S., but also had brief sections on England, Canada, Australia (greatly elaborated recently in TOO by Brenton Sanderson), and France.
There has been a translation from Swedish of an article, “How and why Sweden became multicultural,” that summarizes academic writing on the Jewish role in making Sweden into a multicultural society. This article should be read in its entirety, but some salient points:
The ideological change started in 1964 when David Schwarz, a Polish born Jew and Holocaust survivor who immigrated to Sweden in the early 1950s, wrote the article “The Immigration problem in Sweden” in Sweden’s largest and most important morning newspaper – the Jewish-owned Dagens Nyheter (“Daily News”). It started a rancorous debate that mostly took place in Dagens Nyheter, but which subsequently continued even in other newspapers, on editorial pages and in books. …
Schwarz was by far the most active opinion-former and accounted for 37 of a total of 118 contributions to the debate on the immigration issue in the years 1964-1968. Schwarz and his co-thinkers were so dominant and aggressive that debaters with an alternative view were driven on the defensive and felt their views suppressed. For example, Schwarz played the anti-Semitism card efficiently in order to discredit his opponents. …
It was the conservative Rightist Party who first embraced the idea of cultural pluralism and greatly contributed to shape the new radical direction. It is worth mentioning that the chairman of the Rightist Party 1961-1965, Gunnar Heckscher, was the party’s first leader of Jewish descent.
As in the U.S. and elsewhere, Jewish activists were aided by Jewish media ownership. Activists stressed the need to reshape immigration policy to atone for persecution of Jews—in the case of Sweden, the role of the Swedish government vis-à-vis Jews during World War II. (Similarly, in the U.S., Jewish activists emphasized that the 1924 immigration restriction law was motivated by anti-Semitism, and many activists, including academic activists like Stephen J. Gould [in his notorious The Mismeasure of Man; see here, p. 30ff] claimed that U.S. immigration restriction resulted in Jews dying in the Holocaust. Even Stephen Steinlight, who advocates restriction of Muslim immigration [and only Muslim immigration], termed the 1924 law “evil, xenophobic, anti-Semitic,” “vilely discriminatory,” a “vast moral failure,”a “monstrous policy”; see here, p. 5.)
Assimilation to Swedish culture was viewed as an unacceptable goal:
The starting point was thus a cultural pluralist perspective, which meant that immigrants with massive government intervention and financial support would be encouraged to preserve their culture (and thus send out signals to the world that Sweden is a tolerant country where everyone is welcome). The meeting between the Swedish culture and minority cultures would be enriching to the whole community and the majority population would begin to adapt to the minorities. …
It is not a coincidence that Europe’s organized Jews consistently dissociate themselves from politically organized critics of Islam, because every negative generalization towards a minority group ultimately can hit the Jews.
The article notes that Jews are motivated by the desire to break down ethnically and culturally homogeneous societies because of fear that such societies may turn on Jews, as occurred in Germany, 1933–1945, but also because of traditional Jewish hatred toward the Christian civilization of the West. It concludes by noting that, besides Jewish media ownership, Jewish influence was facilitated by the dominance of academic anthropology by the Boasian school — a Jewish intellectual movement — and its views on cultural relativism and denigration of Western culture.
We agree entirely that Jewish influence stems from their being an academic and media elite, as well as their ability to develop highly effective, well-funded activist organizations. Here, the role of Bruno Kaplan of the World Jewish Congress is emphasized.
This is an important contribution to the understanding of the impending death of the West. Needless to say, such an analysis does not obviate the need for an understanding of why Western cultures have been uniquely susceptible to ideologies that view the destruction of the West as a moral imperative. Nevertheless, it is vitally important to understand the forces that have actively sought to move Western cultures in this direction.
