'I dream that my son has been butchered'

'I dream that my son has been butchered'

As the Swedish media examines the climate of hatred towards women in the public eye, editor and author Ĺsa Linderborg recounts what happened when her newspaper Aftonbladet decided to blow the lid on Sweden’s far-right websites.

”Can’t that disgusting whore Linderborg just lie down and die?”

“She is such a whore, that bitch seems to be completely deranged. Lock the hooker in an mental asylum and throw away the key.”

“Swedes hate you, you feminist communist asshole.”

Then came the threats.

“It wouldn't surprise me if this whore ends up with a price on her head soon.”

“Ĺsa Linderborg should be taken out of action. Permanently.”


It is November 30th, 2012. The culture pages of the tabloid Aftonbladet, which I edit, have just begun publishing a series of investigative reports into far-right websites in Sweden.

The threats start coming.

My bosses tell me to go home and pack my bags. I tell my son we can’t live at home for a while. We take one bag each and head off. I leave my son with his father, I continue to a friend’s house.

That night, I dream that my son has been butchered. He is sitting in an armchair and I’m picking up his severed limbs and putting them back together, hoping they will melt back into place.

1. That's scary and horrible.

 

This shit needs to be exposed as much as possible. Threats and violence against women is unacceptable as is threats and violence against journalists who expose this.
