BCF : In what looks like a new paroxysm of self-hatred and cultural
suicide, Sweden has begun destroying artefacts from its ancient Viking
Erasing Swedish History
One might think that the country, over-run by hordes of Middle
Eastern “asylum seekers”, would wish to preserve as much of its national
identity and cultural heritage as it could. Even at the most mercenary
level, Viking sites, museums, artefacts and souvenirs have been huge
tourism money-earners. The television series Vikings shows Western man’s fascination with the hairy old sea-rovers. The immensely popular books and films of The Lord of the Rings drew in large part upon Norse mythology as well as Christianity, showing its deep resonances even for modern man.
Now an angry archaeologist has blown the whistle on the fact that the
curators of Stockholm’s Länsmuseum have been ordering the systematic
destruction of newly-found artefacts from the Iron Age and the Viking
period with the weak excuse that the material would be too burdensome to
process. This is despite the fact that preservation of the past is what
being a museum curator is meant to be all about.
Coins, arrow-heads, ritual amulets, weapons, jewellery and weights
that were kept in the past are now dumped into metal-recycling bins upon
discovery instead of being cared for and displayed. Museum excavators
are instructed to recycle unearthed iron elements into scrap metal on
the weak pretext that “it would take too many resources to process,
identify and store them”. The findings are usually quickly disposed of
in order to make way for construction machines and building workers.
Ironically yet appropriately, the boom in excavation which has led to
the doomed artefacts being unearthed has largely been to provide
housing for the asylum seekers flooding into the country, and who are
now pushing the crime-rate back towards, well, towards Viking levels.
This process was kept secret until a declaration by Johan Runer, the
museum’s archaeologist. He had tried to raise the alarm before but only
met indifference from the liberal Swedish media. According to Runer,
this has been going on since at least 2016. He claims an entire ancient
settlement was secretly levelled to allow roadworks. The artefacts could easily be stored, as they have been previously,
or sold or given to other museums around the world which would be eager
for them. The real motive looks like the conscious destruction of
Sweden’s culture, history and heritage—an act of Gramscian cultural
warfare by the Left.
