Show of hands, how many thought of the Ikea jihadi attack when you saw the headline today? I am guilty of jumping to that conclusion as well, when it turned out to be more along the lines of the anti-immigrant German who stabbed the mayoral candidate. Or an Anders Breivik wannabe.
Thank you to all of those who emailed me the breaking news. I was on the river guiding and only caught the headline. This is the first time I have had to write about the 21 year-old Swedish Nazi who used a sword to kill 2 people and wound several more in a Trollhättan, Sweden school before being shot dead by police.
“Wearing a Nazi helmet and a Darth Vader mask and holding a sword covered in blood, pupils thought the killer was in Halloween costume and posed for pictures with him seconds before he stabbed their teacher.
The attacker, named by Swedish media as 21-year-old Anton Lundin-Pettersson, then walked from classroom to classroom looking for victims at Kronan school in Trollhattan, near Gothenburg – an area with a high immigrant population…
…”You are scaring the children, get away from here,” she reports her teacher telling the killer.
“He just nodded, then he plunged the knife into the teacher’s right side,” she said. “The last thing I heard him say was ‘call an ambulance’”.
“After that he hunted us through the school. He was playing strange music and didn’t say a word. It was terrifying music, sort of Halloween music.”
After searching his apartment and computer, police have released that he was into Nazi and supremacist YouTube videos and the like.
“Lundin-Pettersson’s social media profiles revealed right-wing and anti-immigration sympathies.
According to Expo, a Swedish magazine which tracks the extreme Right, said the YouTube videos he watched speak of the “multicultural project from hell”, rue the “Jewish media-control of Western civilisation”, and underline “the importance of race in society,“ the reporters noted.
A day before his attack, he ‘liked’ the song When Evil Speaks by the Belgian electro-industrial group Suicide Commando.
He also watched a video collage of Nazi military footage from the Second World War.”
Expect more of this sort of thing as the
colonization immigration crisis in Europe unfolds.
