Some readers may be here because they have been asked to read and share this important information and help drive it to the top search results for the name ‘Elin Krantz’. Hello and welcome, do use this link to help people find us | http://bit.ly/elinkrantz | and please excuse me while I attend to our other guests.

Hello, new guest. I am hoping that you are here because you have been exposed to information that has shocked you to the core, because if so, you are the most important person in my world right now.

You have probably seen the images. The horrible, haunting images of Elin’s corpse under a pile of heavy stones. I’ve been on the internet since way back in the day and I’ve seen my share of genuine crime scene photos both on and offline, but I can tell you that I was horrified in a way that I have never been before, and that’s why I’m here for you today, when you need me the most.

You’ve likely never seen anything like it, so you have probably arrived here in an elevated state of anger, confusion, and revulsion.

I am here to warn you that someone is deliberately seeking to trigger all of this in your mind so that they can direct your anger according to their needs. To be clear, they are exploiting the murder of an innocent woman and using it as propaganda in order to (a) fool you into sharing their lies, as you (b) unleash your anger in a direction that serves their political purposes, before you go on to (c) develop hate and prejudice against countries, people, populations, or even political policies that are nothing to do with any of this terrible crime of violent assault and murder.

These people even seek to make you angry at Elin – the very murder victim you seek to defend – on the grounds that she was a slut who went asking for it, but before we get to the lies we first need to cover the facts, as established by a successful prosecution in a court of law:

The following is a summary courtesy of Wikipedia and you can read the full entry here, but I have trimmed it below to include the primary facts that are relevant to this conversation:

Elin Krantz was a Swedish woman from Falköping who was murdered in the Länsmansgården district of Gothenburg in Sweden in September 2010. After an evening enjoying the nightlife of Gothenburg on 26th September 2010, she fell asleep on the tram. Security cameras showed that she was followed by 23-year old Ephrem Yohannes, who attempted to rape her and then beat her to death. On arrest, Krantz’ DNA was found on his clothing and Yohannes’ DNA was found on her body. Yohannes is an Ethiopian citizen with a residence permit. He was convicted for murder and attempted rape, and sentenced to 18 years in prison and subsequent deportation.

These are the facts. I draw your attention to the CCTV footage showing Krantz being unaware of Yohannes, and of the ultimate prosecution on a charge of attempted rape.

To be clear, even if Yohannes had succeeded in his attempt to rape Elin Krantz, that would not make her a bad person, but the facts lay out a very clear sequence of events: Krantz did not invite sex from Yohannes – or anyone else, for that matter – and evidently resisted his advances at the expense of her life.

So on that note, let’s get the first necessary unpleasantness out of the way:

1. Elin Krantz was not a slut

The propaganda version of this story describes Elin Krantz as a ‘pro multiculturalist’ who got what was coming to her because she wanted to have sex with black men. One of the most outlandish claims associated with this lie is the entirely false assertion that she appeared in a state-sponsored music video designed to encouraged inter-racial breeding in Sweden.

The video they describe is in fact an unrelated comedy video that isn’t a state-sponsored anything, and does not include Elin Krantz.

The model/actress in the video is not Elin Krantz, but Michaela Eklund, and they are evidently different people.

Elin Krantz is not Michaela Eklund

Here we take our first close look at the shape of the lie, because it is important, and what they invent tells you a lot about the inventors and what they want from you:

– The authors want you to think that a state-run conspiracy exists in Sweden and/or the EU where white women are encouraged to inter-breed with men of a different colour.

– The authors further want you to think that these men of a different colour are coming to your country specifically for ‘our women’, and they conflate this with false and misleading accounts of immigration and asylum in the EU and elsewhere.

– The authors would also have you believe that getting raped and murdered is what you deserve (and pretty much what you should expect) if you are a woman and you sleep with or even flirt with any black men at any point in your life. This narrative relies on a ‘jungle fever’ curse where killer rapists will unfailingly seek out the owners of vaginas that have known the pleasure of a black man’s penis. That seems a little far-fetched to me.

2. Sweden is not the rape capital of anywhere

Claims about ‘no go zones’ are nearly always energised by talk of ‘floods’ of brown and black people ‘invading’ a country and raping ‘our women’ (and sometimes children, a popular theme in the UK, where other genuine rapes have been exploited in a similar fashion to this one, but with child rape victims as the exploited parties). The people who spread these falsehoods also conflate their lies with talk of Sharia Law taking hold in urban ghettos where police fear to enter, under a version of Islam they imagine that allows rape and murder of ‘infidel’ women and children.

But no claim of any specified ‘no go zone’ has ever stood up to scrutiny, and the reason for the statistical anomaly on Sweden’s rape statistics is obvious if you know what you are talking about. It is at this point that we turn to Johanna Olseryd, project leader of the research department at Sweden’s National Council on Crime Prevention:

“In Sweden we count as many crimes as [the victim] can specify. So we’ve had cases with women who had a diary so they can say, ‘I’ve been raped within this marriage 400 times.’ That will result in 400 reported crimes. That also contributes to the difficulties in our statistics with comparing from month to month, or comparing one area to another, because a single case of that sort will turn the statistics upside down. That’s been a problem when some journalists from other countries go into our database. It could be one case with 50 reported crimes.”

Snopes.com – Is Sweden the ‘Rape Capital’ of Europe?

So now we know that the authors of this propaganda want to use the attempted rape and murder of one woman to make you more willing to accept false claims and misleading figures about rape generally… claims that are always tied to a political agenda that is somehow against immigration.

The authors also want you to know that rape and murder of ‘our women’ is the ultimate consequence of giving asylum to refugees. Some variations of this propaganda would go so far as to say that the rape and murder of ‘our women’ is the ultimate consequence of liberal or humane policies generally, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

3. Women are people

They are not ‘our women’, or ‘our’ anything; they are people and you should treat them with the same rights you would afford yourself.

The authors of these lies clearly regard women to be property of theirs somehow (often while simultaneously railing against their cartoonish view of ‘Sharia Law’), but it is my duty to inform you that the colour of your skin doesn’t give you a right to sexual congress with any woman; it doesn’t even get you ‘first dibs’. Sure, there are entire cultures struggling to evolve on this point even today, but that’s no excuse for your sorry behind.

Seriously, you’ll want to get this idea right out of your mind. It serves only to recruit you to a tribe that you do not want to belong to. Women are people and people have rights and no-one should have ‘dibs’ on you or have power over what you do with your body. That’s why Ephrem Yohannes is in prison.

I don’t need to cite any evidence here. Either you only have to think about it, or you don’t agree women are people, demonstrating that you have not thought about it hard enough.

Women are, of course, only one of a series of minorities being targeted here, but I doubt you even suspect how long that list is, so let’s crack on…

4. Someone is trying to use you as a weapon of hate

I’ve been showing you the shape of these lies for a reason: you need to understand the motives of the people who just tried to use you as a weapon in their cause… a weapon against innocent people who had nothing to do with the horrible crime against Elin Krantz.

They want you to go charging in like a white knight so you can unwittingly do their dirty work for them.

These are random screen captures of common variations of this same horror story. Look who’s to blame in this fiction they’ve created: there’s a long list of named and nameless minorities and even Hillary Clinton is to blame somehow.

Screen Captures

It’s important to remember that the people(s) selected here are portrayed as a threat so you might more readily accept them as targets or maybe even target them yourself.

It’s also worth noting that the people who are pushing this lie are so far ‘only’ after the Muslims, the Jews, the gays, the sexually promiscuous, the black, the brown, the left, their alleged enablers, the disabled, and anyone else not up to scratch in their eyes. So, nothing for you to worry about, I’m sure.

You need to learn how this works because the lies will not always be this obvious. The people seeking to use you in their culture war are not done with you by a long shot, and you weren’t merely misdirected in this instance; these bastards tried to herd you. You were being rushed into an action with your best instincts being used against you right up until the moment when you started to ask questions. I am so glad that you did.

It. Is. Very. Important. That. You. Continue. To. Ask. Questions.

This is only one example of many attempts to herd you into becoming part of an angry , ill-informed mob. It is no big secret that there are forces including entire nations that seek to fracture Western democracies by dividing our society and making us turn on each other, while weakening our shared values and institutions along the way. Further, there are parasites living inside our society who do this in pursuit of politics, and others who do it for profit. You need to be wary of all of these people, the new extremes they will go to, the new lows they will stoop to, and the worrying implications of all of this, because the same wave that brought the Nazis to power is back again, and the onus is on all of us to resist and protect our fellow humans from the dark impulses that destroy us.

And now, finally, on to the most important part: where friends don’t let friends slut-shame murder victims.

5. How you can fight Nazis and evil Russians and religious extremists all at the same time!

Step One: Don’t be a Nazi stooge (tick box)

Step Two: Warn your friends: “Don’t be a Nazi stooge!”

At present, one of the top search results for the name ‘Elin Krantz’ is a video on LiveLeak that incorporates all of the lies we discussed AND goes on further into a whole rant about ‘retards’.

All of this is designed to appeal to the same human weaknesses that the Nazis did, which is why I use the word as shorthand for who these people are. ‘Alt’-this or ‘neo’-that is just branding: at the end of the day, they are a bunch of fucking Nazis. They intend to bring you a world where you will have your rights taken away if you are the wrong religion, the wrong colour, the wrong orientation, the wrong inclination, or even if you just happen to be an ‘all-right person’ in the wrong place at the wrong time. They will come after you if you get in the way of what they want, which is everything.

Their lies are designed to make you fear specified minorities so you might turn against them, when they are no threat to you.

In truth, the people who are a threat to you are the ones who are lying to you in order to turn you against other human beings.

That is the epitome of evil.

I’m going to suggest – bold idea here, I know – that you NOT be evil today, and NOT help evil people do evil things.

I am going to further request that you be extra mindful not to be tricked into doing bad things in future, because this wasn’t a one-off, and you will be targeted with lies again. Don’t be an unwitting agent of evil by rushing around in an emotional state doing ‘good things based on facts’ that are in fact bad things based on lies.

And the one last thing I am going to ask of you is to revisit the urgency you felt to warn people of the terrible crime against Elin Krantz, because we’re still going to do that.

Together, we are going to warn everyone about the liars that exploit murder victims to get us to hate on each other, just so they can get what they want. The Nazi fuckers.

If you want to help fight the lies used by rape-shaming Nazi scum, all you have to do is tell your friends about this article using this link | http://bit.ly/elinkrantz | or any of the usual sharing features below.

Try to do so with the same effort you had in mind when you thought poor Elin was a slut who went asking to be murdered: surely, it’s the very least you can do.

Be well, keep asking questions, and try not to feel too bad about having your better nature used against you, because it can and does happen to all of us at the best of times.

MINI-UPDATE – see also: The Daily Quail – Why the BNP hate Britain

The BNP decided last night that they would (finally) broadcast their policies instead of riding the expenses scandal. Meanwhile, they’ve urged all of their activists to share their policies push the ‘protest vote’ message wherever they go.

Today I’ll mostly be on Twitter and spreading the word that #theBNParetwats – but I will also be adding to this post as the day goes by to show you what really lurks behind the BNP’s published policies.

Email or message me if you’d like to contribute to the fisking of these ’10 reasons to vote BNP’, or simply share the love on YouTube with the Billy Brit trilogy box set:

http://bit.ly/billybrit | http://bit.ly/billybrit2 | http://bit.ly/billybrit3

Also, if you’re on Twitter, please consider changing your profile image to something suitably anti-BNP and RTing this message.

And now, on with the fisking of ’10 Reasons Why You Should Vote BNP’ (be warned that relevant links go direct to the BNP website):

Reason to vote BNP number 1: Workfare not Welfare – BNP Housing and Welfare Policy.

NCCLols takes a closer look at this; one thing he highlights is the oft-repeated myth of a housing crisis driven by immediate handovers to ‘illegal asylum seekers’ and the like. As many people struggle to understand, the BNP are calling for radical change to reverse/correct something that isn’t really happening.

I’ll field this one a bit, too; they oppose what they describe as “social engineering” before proposing their own social engineering scheme (a theme they often return to), and the entire policy is unworkable without their casting off or cutting off large numbers of brown people regardless of their willingness to work. So you’ll get your welfare improvements after Johnny Foreigner is out on his ear and “utterly bogus asylum seeker and immigration swindles” are done away with. Maybe.

Reason to vote BNP number 2: British Soldiers Defending Britain – BNP Defence Policy.

Sim-O has this covered. Some spectacular isolationism from the BNP, who are at the same time trying to make gains on the backs of an near-to-infinite number of grandfathers who died in WWII.

(see also: Foreign Affairs Policy)

Reason to vote BNP number 3: First Class Health Service for a First World Nation – BNP Health Policy.

To be fisked.

Reason to vote BNP number 4: Nurturing the Genius of Our Nation’s Youth – BNP Education Policy.

Bookdrunk reveals at its core; “a bold policy of sweeping away citizenship lessons and replacing them with.. uh.. a compulsory citizenship organisation for young people”

Reason to vote BNP number 5: Restoring the Rule of Law – The BNP’s Crime and Justice Policy.

Justin McKeating has this one covered. In a disgraceful ad hominem attack that’s certain to enrage non-racist* debating expert Phil Hendren, Justin points out that the authors of these policies are a bunch of crooks. (I might also add that they lie about crime rates and even specific crimes.)

[*MINI-UPDATE – This is a private joke about the perception/portrayal of due criticism as ad hominem attacks in some quarters. ‘Non-racist’ is not meant to be taken as sarcasm, but to clarify that Hendren is only relevant as far as any discussion of ad hominem attacks goes. I do not regard Phil Hendren to be a racist. Happy to make that clear.]

Reason to vote BNP number 6: Preserving British Identity – The British National Party’s Immigration Policy.

Five Chinese Crackers – BNP Immigration policy – something* tells me it’s not just about immigrants

[*Actually, that would be Nick Griffin, wouldn’t it? ;o) ]

Reason to vote BNP number 7: How the BNP Will Rebuild Britain’s Economy.

To be fisked.

Reason to vote BNP number 8: Britain First – The Simple Logic of BNP Foreign Affairs Policy.

Irritability Incarnate: The BNP – on a different planet? points out where “the BNP’s position on foreign policy is somehow incredibly simplistic yet remarkably contradictory and confusing at the same time.”

Jamie Sport offers: “‘Simple’ is the operative word in the BNP’s ‘Foreign Affairs Policy’, which actually just consists of not having any affairs with foreigners. This is classic BNP non-politics; policy which proposes nothing, relying instead on simply doing the opposite of whatever it is the mainstream parties would do. BNP policy is devised not by formulating plans or generating ideas, but by taking current strategy and saying ‘Nah’. This is anti-politics, anti-integration, regressive and harmful to our country, and betrays an inability to seriously run a political party, let alone a country. Mr Griffin and his cohorts have not the faintest idea of how Europe or indeed any international relations work, evidenced by their pie-in-the sky, unworkable soundbite policy points (all *cough* four of them)”

Reason to vote BNP number 9: The BNP Is Britain’s Most Democratic Party.

Five Chinese Crakers – It’s not a baying mob – it’s democratic tells you everything you need to know about the BNP’s commitment to democracy, which goes about as deep (and lasts about as long) as the first layer of cloth in a cheap suit.

The Pickards – The Most Democratic Party? is a completely thorough fisking, and well worth your time.

Reason to vote BNP number 10: The BNP is Britain’s Only True Green Party.

To be fisked.

[Psst! To hear more about their unpublished policies, check out this video of Nick Grfiffin speaking to his American Nationalist and Klu Klux Klan buddies.]

[MINI-UPDATE: ‘Dizzy’ really wanted to help, but thought it more important that you ‘learn’ the BNP are really left-wing. For true.]

Below is what a search for ‘billy brit’ returned last night (and this morning’s results are even better).

That’s near-total ownership; strong control of the brand in Google within a week, using just a few short minutes of video, and it can only get better after the BNP muppets have surrendered.

Go us. Roll on, finale.

The Hunt for Red October

As recently as 29 May, the YBNP site was offering signed ‘Billy Brit’ posters. This followed the Dorries-like stunt in which they responded to being mocked on HIGNFY by announcing that Billy Brit was a success because he’d been on TV (see: “Billy Brit is a special guest star on Have I got News for You”).

Sadly, a regular supply of deliciously dippy delusions has been cut off now that someone in authority (presumably in the BNP) has ordered the entire Billy Brit channel (formerly hosted at http://www.youtube.com/user/BillyBritPuppet) cuh-losed.

There are still posts like this on the BNP site, but they point to empty spaces where the ‘Billy Brit’ videos should be.

Journalists seeking a story that pretty much writes itself are advised to contact the BNP and ask them why Billy Brit has been removed from YouTube. My money’s on a vast left-wing conspiracy of political correctness, or a ballsy statement about their taking their ball and going home (days before an election) because they had already ‘won’.

Enjoy the only surviving* Billy Brit here or here if you haven’t alerady. Oh, and thanks to everybody who chipped in (on Twitter especially).

[Tut. How is it that I bring about the closure of entire BNP YouTube channel, but I can’t even get Iain Dale to apologise for being a total (expletive deleted) about my harassment case?]

In this video, I immediately deal with the what-passes-for-history debate currently in progress under the original video (apparently it’s really important to some people that we ‘prove’ that St George was white) and move on to address the 29 million pamphlets distributed by the BNP:

A couple of weeks ago, I was chatting on Teh Twitter with some like-minded people and we happened across this video of a BNP puppet designed to teach Teh Kids about how cool it is to be white (or something like that):

It was then discovered that the BNP folks had not only helped themselves to a few stock images, but also bought a bog-standard store-bought puppet and presented it as an original character.

This meant that anyone could buy an identical copy of the puppet and use it to mock the BNP… which is exactly what I’ve gone and done. Many thanks to Mike Power for the finance and Chris Applegate for the idea.

Billy Br*t (the racist sh*t)

Share and enjoy, good people… share and enjoy. Oh, and don’t forget to use the all-important tag if you mention this on Twitter: #theBNParetwats

UPDATE – Here’s the reaction on b3ta/links

[I wrote this last night and found out this morning I was scooped by Newspeak who also confirm stock status of the doctor and the soldier. Forgot all about the excellent Tineye. Oh well. Here we go anyway…]

The night before last on Twitter I linked to a few images from istockphoto.com that the BNP had helped themselves to without permission (watermarks and all) to make campaign material. The relevant Flickr account has since been removed for reasons unknown (spotter: Jim Barker).

I am yet to confirm if all of the images involved have been used without permission (I’m still stalking chasing people), but in the meantime I have just seen a scan of one of their pamphlets (from a reported pamphlet run of 29 million) and know enough to ask;

1. Are the BNP really so short of genuine supporters that they have to use stock images?

I ask because the doctor looks like a stock image and I know for a fact that the mature couple and the mother and daughter are stock images.

2. What am I to make of this?

The mature couple are a top search result for ‘retirement’ at istockphoto.com, which appears logical given the text the picture needs to match, but the mother and daughter image took some finding; they didn’t turn up in the first few pages for anything I looked for until I remembered what I was dealing with. This image turned up in the top row on the front page for… ‘white mother’. Bingo.

Oh dear...

(Psst! BNP peeps! Next time, take a tip from Conservative MP Anne Milton and use members from your campaign team to pose as ordinary work-a-day voters. This only leads to trouble if you’re running in a constituency with an obsessive in it. And by ‘obsessive’ I mean someone who doesn’t appreciate being push-polled and then lied to about it. Anyway, while I’ve got your attention, I love the reassuring ‘data protection secure’ logo in the bottom right-hand corner. Still stings, does it?)

UPDATE (15 May) – After some discussion and a day of stalking chasing, I can now confirm that some of these images have been paid for, however, I have also been informed by iStockphoto that this use of these images (i.e. assigning a political opinion to the models, imposing on them an endorsement they have not made and few would wish to be associated with) is NOT permitted under the terms of the licence. It is also quite likely that use of a model’s image in this way amounts to an offence under the European Parliamentary Elections Act 2002.

Here’s an extract from the Parties, Candidates and Agents Guidance book:

3.29 Candidates may wish to use canvassers to help with the election campaign. It is, however, illegal to employ paid canvassers for the purpose of promoting or procuring a particular result at an election before, during or after the election…

3.30 The legislation describes canvassing as: … by word, message, writing or in any other manner, endeavour to persuade any person to give or dissuade any person from giving, his vote, whether as an elector or proxy

Watch the comments over at Newspeak for developments or follow me on Twitter.

(Psst! Long-time readers of Bloggerheads may be interested to know that paid agents of any party who are sock-puppeting for or against any party or candidate may also be guilty of an offence under the European Parliamentary Elections Act 2002, as this too appears to qualify as paid canvassing.)

UPDATE (16 May) – A company spokesperson for iStockphoto has issued the following statement (much earlier than today, I should note; the email granting me permission to publish it bounced during a server outage):

“In regards to the use of imagery in conjunction with testimonials, this certainly falls outside of our license terms as users are not permitted to impose these endorsements onto models featured in our artists’ content. In response to BNP’s use of iStock content in conjunction with testimonials, we shall be contacting them to clarify and address the matter.”

So, to make that absolutely clear, even if money did change hands over these images, the BNP did not and do not have permission to use these images in this way… so please speak up if you are aware that they are still distributing unaltered pamphlets like this or this without, for example, obscuring these faces with little white stickers.

Oh, and a big ‘thank you’ goes out to the good people at the Telegraph, who have picked up the story and given a platform to some of the victims. If someone slapped my face next to a positive testmonial in a BNP pamphlet, I’d be more than a little peeved myself.

[Psst! Don’t forget to scan and upload all of the electoral pamphlets you get to thestraightchoice.org, folks.]

UPDATE (20 May) – The ‘British jobs for British workers’ builders are from Oregon, in the US. The soldier exploited by the BNP had the temerity to call the BNP and complain… they told him to “f**k off”. The family picture on the front is genuine; the only genuine picture in most if not all versions of this pamphlet, in fact. The picture is of candidate Nick Cass and his family (this article also points out that; “the BNP’s chief designer is one Mark Collett of Leeds, a man widely derided in the BNP as incompetent”).

IMPORTANT – All of the victims of the BNP’s creative approach to campaign material have now been identified and notified. There is no need for you to re-notify them, as much as the thought/effort is appreciated.

Cheers all.
