STOCKHOLM/OSLO (Rixstep) — This isn't the type of news coverage you'd see in Sweden any longer. As has happened in the past, it's only Norway (or one of the other nordic countries) who'd dare speak out.
It's just over one year ago that famous author Katerina Janouch was interviewed by the media in her country of birth (Czechoslovakia, now Czech Republic). She told it like it is, and was proven right many times over.
But that wasn't good enough for the 'politically correct' in Sweden, where upholding a false 'image' of the country is more important than anything.
Sweden's prime minister came down on her, and the new generation of 'brownshirts' hit hard.
This is something they regret: little did they know that the hyper-pleasant Katerina, with dark memories of repression in her old home country, would react as she did.
Today Katerina Janouch is a force to reckon with, even as the panic-stricken country approaches its September national elections.
Many have already heard about the growing women's uproar about the rape import spreading across Europe, where women increasingly find it unsafe to visit public places. This uproar, christened #120dB. began in Germany and has since spread across the continent. Our neighbour to the East (Sweden) is one of the hardest hit countries, having implemented a much more liberal immigration policy than the rest of the EU states.
A little while ago, Resett had the pleasure of meeting with Katerina Janouch, who made headlines in Sweden when she went on Czech television and talked about the dramatic rise in crime, along with a heightened sense of fear, most of all for women. Janouch will soon publish her new book 'Last Night in Sweden', to be launched in Swedish 28 February, and in English shortly thereafter.
#120dB started with a video where German women express their concerns, where they encourage European women to stand with them in solidarity. The women in the video strongly criticise Germany's politicians with their mass migration experiments.
'They sold us out', they say.
'It started with the video 'Daughters of Europe'. #120dB is a whole new movement. It's named for the common volume on violence alarms that women carry with them', says Janouch to Resett.

Katerina is not surprised at the growing rape problem, saying that it's due to a poor attitude towards women in some cultures.
'It's evident our politicians don't like to confront the fact that women in Europe have become more unsafe as a result of years of high immigration levels from cultures with a completely different view of women, sex, and abuse. Many come from communities where women are always covered and where they are subordinate to men. Then they come to Europe, and to Sweden, and they see women working, and women jogging, and women going outdoors without a male escort - free women.'
Katerina emphasises that not all immigrants are a problem.
'Clearly not everyone is a problem. I have immigrant friends who I like. Not everyone has a bad attitude towards women, but unfortunately there is enough of it to go around, so yes, it's a problem.'
Rape in Public Places
It's abuse of a kind that's not been seen in Sweden before. Rape has always occurred, women have always been victims of abuse in their homes. What's new is that public places are also becoming increasingly insecure for women. Statistics from the National Crime Council show that over half of rapes in Sweden now take place in public places.
'There can be multiple attackers. a whole gang, raping a woman. There's taharush gamea from Egypt, for example. And in Afghanistan there are even sex games where little boys are the victims.'
'When you don't know who's coming, it's impossible to expect the new arrivals to be kind and proper.'
'Our borders are open. We don't know who's getting in. Many are nice people, but you can't know this when they arrive. And the ones who commit these cruel crimes are not deported. They receive very lenient sentences and, in the short run, are protected by the public sector. There are now so many cases of rape and sexual assault [~30 per day] that the police can't deal with the situation. As a consequence, there's no risk to these men if they want to go on raping.'
Katerina describes a dark life in Sweden today, where women no longer dare do ordinary things, for fear of abuse.
'Women don't dare use public transport anymore. They don't dare go jogging. All of Sweden has become a no-go zone for them, and not just in the outermost regions, but also now in the big cities. We have gang violence in Stockholm, and also in other cities - Malmö is particularly hard hit', she says.
Katerina speaks of a new phenomenon where young boys are also raped by adult men.
'It's very interesting that it's almost exclusively Afghans who commit these rapes. We've not seen this in Sweden before.'
Katerina is clear that it's the huge immigration wave we have to thank for the increase in crime and rape.
'You don't have this problem in Central Europe because you don't accept immigrants like this. This is obvious to everyone', Katerina says.
Gang Rapes, Distractions by the Media
Katerina thinks relatively trivial matters get too much media attention at the expense of serious abuse.
'#120dB is the real #Metoo. #Metoo doesn't deal with really serious issues. In some cases, a man has sent an inappropriate SMS or something similar. No one wants to talk about gang rapes.'
Katerina tells us about adult male asylum seekers who rape girls and can still remain in the country.
'An asylum seeker raped a 13-year-old girl, but he wasn't deported because the court said he was so well integrated.'
Europe Waking Up
#120dB has found enormous response in many western countries. Katerina is pleased to say that people from many countries are joining the #120dB movement.
'People from Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, New Zealand, and almost all nations of the Western World have joined #120dB. It's very inspiring!'
The customary accusations of racism and xenophobia are still being hurled by Sweden's politically correct elite. #120dB hasn't been well received by the country's feminists and the mass media.
'Of course we're called racist and xenophobic. They write about us and humiliate us in various newspapers. But I don't care about it anymore. I just want us to be safe. I want the politicians to take us seriously and protect European women, rather than protecting the criminal element and letting them continue to commit their crimes. They've sold us European women out, our politicians did. That's what they've done.'
Katerina can't understand why politicians think it's a good idea to bring in so many young men.
'I think it's strange that you bring in so many young, strong men. Why? Many are of course criminals. They exploit the system and lie to get financial support. And they think that our society is their oyster, and that our society also benefits those who behave badly. They get to stay because someone feels sorry for them. Those who do behave end up getting deported because they're easier to deport, they don't put up a stink, they do as they're told. Ask them to leave and drag them out. While those who do something criminal or rape someone aren't deported. They're considered unfairly treated, they need help, supposedly.'
'You can't fool people anymore'
Sweden's obstinate culture and the silence surrounding the perpetrators' cultural backgrounds seem to be in harmony, Katerina believes. And this only creates more distrust.
'Fear of foreigners only comes about when you don't talk about the cause of problems. When you're not allowed to talk about what's going on, and get the facts on the table, people become just more suspicious and paranoid. Had you been honest and shown that you wanted to protect our citizens, things would probably have been different.'
'You can't fool people anymore. We have social media. People find out.'
Sweden Turned Its Back
Katerina believes that Sweden has turned its back on Swedish and European women.
'It's become very unpleasant in Sweden with this repressive culture. Now they say we've been 'radicalised'. I say OK, call me radicalised. And if that's happened, it's happened because the country turned its back on European women. They can't silence us any longer.'
'Our children, our daughters, and their future'
'Our actions should influence politicians. Our movement has no party affiliation - everyone's welcome. But we must pressure our politicians on this. We want safety, and to make demands. We hate criminality, we hate rapes, but we don't hate people.'
'This is about our children, our daughters, and their future.'
Sweden's reckless immigration policy can spread beyond the Nordic region, Katerina believes, even though Swedish politicians try to create the impression they've stopped the flow. Sweden is still taking in many times more immigrants than her neighbours.
''The forecast for 2018 is sky high, immigrants are still pouring in. This will affect the rest of Scandinavia too. Mark my words', Katerina concludes.
