Last Days of Fjordman - Request for Topics?

This is the last month I will write here, and I will shut down the blog probably within the coming ten days or so. I have some posts that I will make anyway, but maybe some of my readers have some requests for topics we could discuss here during the last couple of weeks? I have to make a selection, as I don't have enough time to do everything.

And yes, I will shut down during December, that decision is final. It's only a matter of which date. I keep getting emails from people who want me to keep on blogging. I appreciate that, but I won't change my mind.

Here is an article from an American living in Stockholm, it is about his ideas about racism in Sweden. I would like to hear you comments on it.

I'm so depressed. No Fjordman. Norway changing. Holiday trees, not Christmas trees. Is this what it means getting old? What happened to the days of old, Christmas cheer, right and wrong, loyalty, fairness and love...

I'm very, very sad today. And that's saying alot because I haven't been sad in many years.

Subject: Why is the "left" so angry? I think they want to destroy tradition because they never had it. They come from rebellious, unloved homes. It makes them angry to know that there are people who had loving families and they want to destroy it for everyone.

I have a request.

How about a suggested bibliography for books on Islam and European politics/decline? Both in English and other European languages. The post shouldn't take too long to compile and it would be a great Christmas gift to the fans of this blog.

It's been great having you Fjordman. You've been a breath of freash air in the blogosphere. Good luck!

Fjordman: People reading your blog are much more informed about what is going on in Norway and Sweden than those listening to National Public Radio or reading the New York Times in the U.S. You have made a real contribution with your blog.

I would like to see more updates on the Swedish and Norwegian rape issue. Hopefully, you will change your mind.

That blog that showhank posted is like a pious leftist multiculturalist at prayer. He even deleted negative comments about immigrants because he didn't want Muslims to feel unwelcome at his blog.

Such are the new priests of our age. They are very, very religious.

Fjordman you leave the glory of lying or hiding information to the Left.

Your decision can only be understood if you have fear or personal obligations incompatible with blogging.

Anyway thanks for opening my eyes about Scandinavians, I had a better image on you until I read what is happening there.

If someone feels insulted for my view sorry but I am against the prevailing politically correct doctrine.

OK a request: relate PeakOil to Eurabia. I have a feeling that the former will render the latter impossible.

PeakOil link , for starters

Ah Ragnarok! We thought you would come with a bang, but the world (i.e., the West) descends softly into the cold, cold, night...

Sic transit gloria mundi.

jmaria, Did you see that kookball Garrett Bucks deleted your comments? Talk about being a JERK. How about this for a topic: Why liberals are such a bunch of wimps!!!

hey dammit! I just found your site...and I love it!

I was going to write a post about it on my own site and even give you a link (I very rarely do that).

Gosh darn it anyway.

...oh yeah, peak oil is a myth because oil doesn't come from dead dinosaurs, pass it on.

Sissyblue and Jmaria,

My comment to Garrett Bucks on his site did not appear when I sent it; he is perhaps so thin-skinned that he has turned the comments off after getting a couple of them that didn't flatter him enough.

For the record, here it is:

Mr. Bucks,

It would seem that you have a problem with allowing any dissent from your lordly wisdom to appear in the comments section of your blog.

Why don't you just write all the comments yourself, since you appear so insecure that you need a cheering section.

As for wanting your Muslim friends to be able to read your blog without feeling "personally attacked," I do not know what you deleted, so I have only your word for it that it consisted of "personal attacks." Given your apparent assumption that all negative feelings toward immigrants can only be ascribed to racism, I have to wonder.

Maybe your immigrant friends need to get used to the give-and-take of ideas of free countries and lose the habits of mind they developed under a system of religio-political totalitarianism.

Rick, Great post! I entered one a bit shorter: "What a narrow minded AH!" It didn't get posted either so I'm thinking he's filtering them. And, you're right, the Muslims do need to hear some truth once in a while. One of our friends is now going through a crisis partly because of all the hammering we give him over his insane religion and its followers.
The mental gymnastics one has to take to believe Islam is even a religion are incredible!

sissyblue, yes I knew that he would delete my comments but I took the pleasure to comment.
My comments were on the line I usually post in Fjordman´s blog, sorry I mean Saint Fjordman and that without irony.

What a difference in tolerance and grandeur between them!
Maybe many times Fjordman has felt disturbed or even angry with my comments but he has been able to ignore them!

Thank you very much Fjordman, I really will miss you and I keep the secret hope that in some months you will come back.

I second jmaria's fine words:>)

Fjordman-

You will be missed. Would you consider blogging on topics of unusual importance?

My topic? Will Europe survive the latest Muslim invasion? What has to happen for Europe to defend itself?

Fjordman is a man of dignity, and even though I strongly disagree with his opinions or interpretation of data, he is level-headed - and if there is something we need more of, it is exactly those kind of people.

Good luck with all, Fjordman!

Fjordman, you are truly a class act. Thank you for opening my eyes about Islam in Scandinavia. You will really be missed. Best of luck to you wherever you go.

Hei fjordman! Although, I do not comment on your blog (I did maybe once), I read your posts very often. It is a shame that you are closing it down. Lykke Til!

I'd be curious to see something on the effects of immigration on the acceptance of homosexuality in Scandinavia, if it's getting worse and whatnot.

I'd also be curious to know the positioning of most readers here. Are most mainstream people -- the Scandinavians here, liberal who are fine with gays and whatnot -- or are most really radical to the right, like belonging to the Swedish National Democrats or Sweden Democrats party? I hope most are mainstream...such parties just hurt the anti-immigration cause by making it seem like it's only really radical people who support it. It gives it a bad name. Maybe an article on the effects of such radical right-wing parties? I don't know much about it, but if the Norwegian Progressive Party is as mainstream as it appears to me yet being still anti-immigration...that is what Sweden needs. Neither the Moderates nor Folkpartiet are very anti-immigration, which is a shame, though they'd be much better than the Social Democrats right now.

You'll be missed, Fjordman, and you leaving will indeed be a big blow to the cause. I read your blog virtually daily and it is where I get most of my news on this.

REQUEST? I'd love to see you run a post of your favorite essays. I've enjoyed all your posts but I didn't arrive to your site until earlier this year. I'm sure I missed a great deal.

I wish you much success, great health and happiness for you and yours. I've said it before, and I'll say it again - you will be sorely missed!

Fjordman - Will you be removing this blog as of the end, or will you leave it up for reference?
