Clinic Slammed for ‘Non-Nordic’ Baby Register

The Local, October 11, 2013

A children’s health clinic in western Sweden has come under fire after it came to light that it routinely registered babies as having a “non-Nordic origins”.

The practice came to light in December following a complaint filed with Sweden’s data privacy watchdog, the Data Inspectorate (Datainspektionen, DI).

The complaint focused on a particular case in which a baby was “diagnosed” as having “non-Nordic origins” (utomnordisk härkomst) even though the child’s mother was born in Sweden and its father was a Swedish citizen who had lived in Sweden since childhood.

The doctor who filed the complaint charged that the clinic, located in Västra Götaland in western Sweden, had violated Sweden’s Personal Register Law (personuppgiftslagen – PUL).

“As far as I know, this is not in accordance with PUL to register ‘origin’, that is, ethnicity for a person in healthcare, if there is not reason,” he wrote in his complaint.

He added that he suspected similar registers existed throughout the western Swedish region.

“This is deeply worrying and risks strengthening the mistrust between different groups of Swedes,” he continued.

When probed by data privacy watchdog, the county health board defended the practice by explaining the “non-Nordic” registry helped alert authorities to families that could belong to certain risk groups through travelling to countries where diseases might be prevalent, such as Tuberculosis or Hepatitis B.

There is also a high chance that family members from such countries will visit the baby in hospital, thereby increasing the risk of the child falling ill with one of these diseases, the board added.

However, health officials admitted that registering “non-Nordic” as a “diagnosis” in patient health charts was a mistake that occurred in the wake of a efforts to coordinate data between paediatric clinics and primary care clinics.

The health board claimed the “non-Nordic diagnosis” had only come up in the patient data system of one children’s health clinic. However, officials admitted that such “diagnoses” were a mistake that would not happen again.

The Data Inspectorate advised the board to improve and to clarify its procedures for how it records information when it comes to newborn babies.

    This is known as FORCED assimilation.


    • Spartacus

      Don’t worry, the time of FORCED unassimilation is getting close .

      • Jkjljmt_Pqprpstt

        FORCED assimilation & MASSIVE immigration bringing hundreds of millions of non-whites into ONLY and ALL white countries. That’s how White Genocide works.

        • ms_anthro

          They came from somewhere. They can be sent back. It’s just a matter of time.

          • Spartacus

            They came from hell, and that’s exactly where they’ll go back ! But we must not forget their enablers, who are gonna have an even worse fate…

          • David Ashton

            The “fate worse than hell” and the identity of the “enablers” (of a contrary religious tradition) need not be spelled out. According to your exposition on another website, which I only very rarely consult, you want every Black person and every Jew wiped off the face of the earth. Impalement, mass-lynching, mass-gassing, you name it, but it’ll never happen.

            Such posts are a gift to the enemies of race realism and western patriotism who scrutinise AmRen for “serial killers” who wish to outdo the Zulus, the Mongols or the Communists in the mound of helpless children’s skulls.

          • Spartacus

            Our enemies will be the same, do the same things, say the same words and think the same thoughts, regardless of what I post on a comments section . They think Jared Taylor and David Duke are “White Supremacists” for God’s sake ! That alone should show you they are either mentally ill, or insincere in their thoughts, and make any opinion they express irrelevant .

            And for the record, I wasn’t referring to jews in that case, but to race traitors. Specifically, to the prosecutor in that case, Kaja Strandjord, who is White, and who did the abomination in the image I’ve posted.

          • David Ashton

            So to add to your proposed physical extermination of all Blacks, all Muslims and all Jews, we now have Whites you consider traitors (I trust not me, Taylor and Duke included, but who knows?).

            Who is “mentally ill” here?

          • Spartacus

            David, you know what we’re going through right now happened before. Whites built a civilization, they brought in dark-skins and mixed with them, and then their civilization was no more. It happened in Egypt, it happened in Persia, it happened in Central Asia… It even happened to the yellow race, most recently in Cambodia . And now – It’s happening all over the White world, at the same time, and with an intensity never before seen in human history . Don’t you think we should break the cycle at one point ?

          • David Ashton

            Yes, I have read my history and even suggested relevant references here for Romulus and others.

            Ends and means: that is the question.

          • Spartacus

            The end must be saving the only thing worth saving. The means must be anything that’s necessary .

          • David Ashton

            Trying to murder millions upon millions of “dark-skinned” people (I forget to put the Gypsies in your list of potential victims) is not necessary, and to advocate it is counter-productive to say the least (ESPECIALLY on this website).

          • Spartacus

            1.It IS necessary(unless you know another way, in which case I’m all ears) .
            2.Our enemies advocate our extermination openly, and they’re currently winning, in case you haven’t noticed…

          • David Ashton

            A little sarcasm, like a little learning, is a dangerous thing.

            I have long been familiar with the ideological ravings of pseudo-academics like Noel Ignatiev and Theo Goldberg, and with able academic refutations, including those from Jews like Michael Levin. “When we say we want to abolish the white race,” says Ignatiev, “we do not mean we want to exterminate people with fair skin [but] to do away with the social meaning of skin color.” As for “Jewish racism, hypocrisy and supremacy”, he has attacked Zionism and the “Jewish population of Israel” on comparable, if not exactly identical, grounds.

            I would think proposals to curb immigration, to discourage genocide through race-crossing, to revive western cultural consciousness and to advocate humanitarian eugenics, are more likely to gain political, practical and moral acceptance, than your demands literally to wipe out everyone born with “dark skins” plus all Jews (some of whom are pinker than many Romanians, as shown in your picture).

            Extermination of Arab Muslims, however, might paradoxically find you some support among those who wave the Magen David (as also shown in your picture), though in this case the intended victims would probably include some who share your Jewish Conspiracy theory! Jews in general have no interest in the total disappearance of white Gentiles.

            I have often summarised my own contribution as follows: (1) More white children; (2) heritage security; (3) internet technology-and- content mastery.

            Regarding (3) I have seen over the past few years many good, constructive suggestions on AmRen to promote white solidarity, exchange accurate information, and put our case across effectively, and suggested their collection and distribution by the New Century Foundation and others. Instead, this website has become too much of a happy hunting-ground for defeatists, neo-nutzis, sinophiles, libertarian-extremists, grudge-egotists, Bible-cranks, Jew-jabberers, anglophobes, sadistic psychopaths, etc.

            I haven’t given up on AmRen — yet!

          • Spartacus

            “Jews in general have no interest in the total disappearance of white Gentiles.”


            The actions and intentions of any particular group are decided by it’s elites, not by it’s masses . The jewish elites have stated their opinion very clearly, and I think I’ll trust their own words in this regard, as Ignatiev was just one example among many .

            Also, you have to keep in mind most people who are now jewish have no link whatsoever with any middle-eastern population. They are jews in name only, and are biologically Whites, but culturally as far away from us as Zulus.

            The only reason I post on Amren is because it’s full of people like you – people who see the truth, but do not yet understand what must truly be done . In all honesty, I don’t understand how you can know what’s happening around you, but be so naive about what needs to be done, and what will be done. Remember – In 5-10 years you’ll be dead, but I’ll still be alive and kicking, and most of the people I’ll be kicking are a danger to your grandchildren.

          • David Ashton

            I shall resist the temptation to discuss Jewish genetics with you on one side or Engelman on the other.

            I can assure you and the “watchers” that I have no intention to go out tonight to stab a gypsy, bomb a mosque or a synagogue, and machine-gun some negroes. That would not help my grandchildren one bit.

          • Spartacus

            A legacy is something that matters. What you leave behind for your grandchildren will not matter, nowhere near as much as the bodies of people like me defending them from sub-humans who want to eat them.

          • David Ashton

            It would be ungracious of me not to thank you for your prospective sacrifice, albeit reminiscent of zombie films from our friends in Horrorwood.

          • Spartacus

            Groids are not much smarter than zombies…

          • David Ashton

            And those you and your mates “got” presumably were engaged in a fair fight?

          • Spartacus

            No such thing as a fair fight, when you’re fighting cockroaches.

          • David Ashton

            They use boric acid in our kitchens but spraying the Caribbean and Africa might pose a practical problem.

          • stewball

            Don’t be too sure of that.

          • stewball

            But you may be bumped off before Mr. Ashton kicks the bucket.

          • stewball

            Maybe they’re laughing at the kKK and their white supremacy.

          • stewball

            How is Romulus!!!!!

          • stewball

            You know sparty you should think twice about the Jews. Our army is one of the best in the world. Yoi may need them.

          • stewball

            Have you not noticed what is going on in countries to wipe the Jewish people out. No circumcision even though jesus had his on the 8th day after his birth in Jerusalem. This also affects the Muslims and people who want their sons done for health reasons. No kosher killing of animals which also affects the Muslims. No skull caps. They are so in your face that they must be removed. Some Muslims also wear them as do the holy Catholics. What next. Can’t have our sabbath on a Saturday but only when everyone else does? Friday id the Muslims sabbath. All the countries who participatedIn sending Jews to their deaths
            Are those trying again to wipe out Judaism. Maybe this surge of antisemitism in Europeiis

          • David Ashton

            I am sorry but I can’t take this “comment” too seriously.

          • David Ashton

            I am not sure about your last sentence, but you do not have to be clever or even particularly well-informed to know that it is nonsense to say that the German and other governments in the EU are trying to “wipe the Jewish people out”.

          • stewball

            You can’t understand my last sentence as I never finished it. Can you not see how the West is behaving towards Israel? That’s all contributingto the wave of antisemitism sweeping across Europe. If you read what the Ashton woman wants regarding the ‘occupied territories’ you will see she is using double standards as the rest of the world has been doing ever since Britain had no choice but to let us resettle the land. What do I mean by double standard? She wants everything from over the green line to be marked as such. No more funding to universities etc (except the outside world will be worse off than us) etc. Now you might say quite right too. So ask yourself why is she et al not putting the same sanctions on the occupied territories in Cyprus? When the turks invaded Cyprus and captured part of it the world cried shame. Illegal. Return the territory to Cyprus. Did they? Of course not. They’re not. They are being funded by Ashton and her ilk for schooling. Advancement etc. Why? What’s the difference between Israel and Turkey? We know the answer to that don’t we.
            Now back to Europe. How come after hundreds of years suddenly all our beliefs and laws are being denied us. You think these countries won’t succeed in depriving us of our beliefs? Poland has already banned schilta. I bet they forgot that Muslims do the same as we do. They claim cruelty to animals but legally go out hunting! Not allowedto wwear a skullcap? How does that bother anybody? A little covering of the head. That’s absurd. Not to be circumcised? Even I revolt at that one. I may not keep kosher nor my children. We may not cover our heads except in synagogue but not circumcise our sons? That is wrong. I agree a mohel/surgeon should be used which is what my children use but to forbid that? Never. It is something that goes against the grain of 99% of Jews.
            Many gentiles circumcise their boys. It’s healthier for them and for their partners. It’s done 8 days after the birth. As I said Jesus was taken to Jerusalem on the 8th day after his birth proving he is Jewish. And to compare it to female mutilation is absurd and sick.
            All these things Mr. Ashton show that getting rid of Jews is the idea on the minds of Europe. Cameron is too scared to try and do something like that. At the moment!

          • David Ashton

            Thank you for clarification.

          • stewball


          • stewball

            That is disgusting and shows how people are scared of Muslims.

          • stewball

            Easier said than done.

          • ms_anthro

            Yes, like most things worth doing. It will be done.

  • WASP

    Immigration to Sweden and/or being born there does not make one a Swede — only to delusional NWO liberal types.

    • Sick of it

      Or Nordic. There is an actual Nordic racial type and to claim that someone is Nordic, when they obviously are not, is lying. But liberals despise the truth.

      • gemjunior

        It’s also denying that the white racial type, or a white ethnic type exists – more genocide. Does DNA have any meaning? The new NWO thinking is that if you become a citizen of a country it makes you “French” or “Irish”.

        • Sheik Yerbouti

          Exactly. These morons want to erase the “social” aspects of our differences away so bad that they are willing to hide the clear-cut MEDICAL differences. THAT will get people killed.

  • Ella

    I trust doctors understand the higher risk of diseases and foreign travel to 3rd World holes. I knew ethnic Germans, living in Europe, who never left their home country to travel France or Denmark; though, they’re geographically next door. Unlike the US, we are open targets for TB epidemics from Mexican, Indian, Russian and African travellers or illegals. At least, we can scan them for health reasons when they enter this country. Is that so racist??????

    • joesolargenius

      Many of the homeless shelters don’t screen for tuberculosis and these places are often over ran with illegal aliens , during the winter every one in them is coughing mostly due to colds or smoking too much, but you never really know. I no longer volunteer to help feed the poor there because of this problem and now focus my efforts to helping them go where the jobs are such as North Dakota.

    • Sick of it

      Polio was also eliminated in this country until the flood from south of the border.

        The polio virus was found in water around the areas where the Africans managed to get across. Most kids have been re ennoculated.

    “This is deeply worrying and risks strengthening the mistrust between different groups of Swedes,”

    Not likely, given that all (true) Swedes are Nordics – tough of course, it may increase the mistrust between the Swedish people and the Swedish intelligentsia.

  • Angermannaland

    I follow media more thorough then most swedes, and this was news to me. This has not made the front page of any major news media, which is surprising as the usually take any chance of exploiting sign of “structural racism” as they call it here (equivalent of “white priviligies”). I can only guess why it´s not big news (yet), since the swedish media has a clear agenda where delivering the news is secondary to educating the swedes into accepting mass immigration, usually this type of incidents would explode all over the media.

    Though we just had such an event regarding the police having a register over some heavily criminal families who were gypsies, some 400 people incluing family members and children, it saved time for the police not having to map out the connections from scratch each time. The highest chief of police as well as the minister of law immidiately critized the registers without any investigation into the topic. This was different, quite a few people including chiefs of police stepped up and defended the registers. Perhaps the establishment was chocked by their courage and are more careful now.

    It might also have something to do with the elections for both EU parlament and swedish parlament coming up in less then a year, combined with the strong development inthe polls for our major immigration critical party. They might not want to put more focus on these topics, instead they want us to discuss taxes and wellfare were other parties are stronger

    Please ignore poor language and/or spelling =).

    • joesolargenius

      Thank you for sharing this with us and we would appreciate any future insights you might have , this site needs more activist from all over the world to send us information !

    • Spartacus

      Has the Swedish Resistance Movement started doing anything yet ?

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Your language and spelling is very good, especially if English is your second language. I commonly see native speakers do much worse.

      It’s nice to hear from someone who actually lives in Sweden. With all the crazy news stories coming out of Sweden, it sounds like a madhouse there (mostly because of your politicians).

      I hope your immigration-critical party does well in the elections coming up. All white nations could use some immigration restriction right now.

      • NoMosqueHere

        I don’t understand what the swedes and other european nations are accomplishing by admitting hundreds of thousands of muslims and africans into their countries. Is it a form of suicide?

    • So they’re throwing a big fit over the cops having a list of criminal gypsy families.

      Imagine the meltdown that some people would be having if Sweden did what it actually should do and needs to do with the gyps: Deporting them.

    “…even though the child’s mother was born in Sweden and its father was a Swedish citizen who had lived in Sweden since childhood.


  • me

    These people are confusing ‘occupation’ of Sweden with being a fair-skinned, native Swede. You can shove feathers up your butt and call yourself a chicken, but you’re not really a chicken. You can call yourself a ‘Nordic’, but it doesn’t necessarily make it so. Are these people crazy, evil, or just stupid? I’m bone-weary with this mass insanity and nonsense!

    • Hal K

      There are nonwhites pursuing their group interests explicitly. There are explicitly disloyal whites (i.e. liberals) trying to undermine their own race. Finally there are implicitly loyal whites (i.e. conservatives) who have been brainwashed into thinking it is wrong to support their race explicitly. This covers just about everyone in the West, except for the few who have woken up.

  • John Ulfsson

    One thing I’ve noticed liberals do is they try to completely destroy the identity of the native white population and harshly criticize and reprimand anybody who enforces that identity while simultaneously empowering and elevating whatever identity the immigrant has.

    • Oof

      Native white population? That’s not a thing. You’re crazy.

  • bigone4u

    Sadly, the word “Swedish” has become as useless as the word “American” to describe a person. The powers that be will not be satisfied until the word “MONGREL” applies to us all.

    • Jefferson

      Swedes can also lose their blond Nordic looks by mixing with darker Caucasoids. I have a female friend who is half Cypriot and half Swede. She inherited the darker features of the people of Cyprus because she has brown eyes and very dark brown hair that looks almost black.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Not all swedes are blonde; many are, but many are not. I was in Sweden about 30 years ago, before the third world invasion started, and noticed many ethnic swedes had brown hair and eyes.

  • Brian

    a baby was “diagnosed” as having “non-Nordic origins” (utomnordisk
    härkomst) even though the child’s mother was born in Sweden and its
    father was a Swedish citizen who had lived in Sweden since childhood.

    It’s cute that the author pretends to be confused about the meaning of ‘non-Nordic origins’.

  • Chris Granzow XI

    I hate The Local. It’s a bunch of non-europeans (liberal ones) who made a news website aimed at europeans. 90% of their content is about “racism.” During the Husby riots, they even blamed the Swedes.

  • M&S

    I remember awhile back when there was actually a movement by doctors to label diseases and deficiencies by Continent rather than by race because that would be less likely to arouse ‘genetic terror’ by non-whites suspicious of racism under the bed.

    And that got shot down because everyone knew ‘who lived in Africa’. Or Mexico. But nobody knew their geography well enough to break down populations by micro regions which were actually more useful as Kenyans had a whole set of different genetic attributes than Moroccans anyway.

    Nordic is ironically an acknowledgement of _white_ genetic diversity, being one of the old family group names by which we were classified Alpine, Mediterranean or Nordic groups. It’s pre-20th century and not altogether accurate as it doesn’t include Slavic or some Indo groups of SE Europe in particular.

    But the key is that every dictionary now makes sure anyone looking up the term knows that it is a ‘non scientific’ use of the term. Why are -we- supposed to be afraid of our white richness?

    Especially when, ‘scientifically speaking’, where you come from determines about 80% of how well you are going to do in the Western World. Because the genes that you carry were optimized by selection in the ENVIRONMENT we /still/ call ‘Nordic’ as a filter for survival.

    And the societies which everyone from everywhere wants to live in STILL come from the minds that evolved in those regions. Because ‘the system’ (structural racism, white privilege etc.) that we subconsciously erect is one which we ‘socially constructed’ from our understanding and ability.

    Not Africans. Not Eskimos. Not Papa New Guineans.

    Society doesn’t dictate race. Race predicts society. Every scientist or historiographer knows this.

    Scientists are such moral cowards that they permit idiot politicians to drive them into passive fraud as an ‘non-scientific’ interpretation of the very data they generate which proves otherwise.

    You want to see ‘non-Nordic’? You go to Malmo in the summertime and watch the Muslim community torch schools. You watch the police escorts for ambulances.


  • Fr. John+

    We are SO afraid of recognizing the “Other” in ANY form, that we forget one certain race does it as a matter of course- and they all live in Israel. What is good for the goose, is good for the gander, unless THEY tell you, you aren’t a goose… which they continually do. Someone’s lying, aren’t they?

    The HepB thing is especially relevant to the US population. The only children at risk of Hepatitis B are blacks, but they force every newborn to get the vaccine. Why? Well, I suspect it’s because saying only blacks should get it is racist.
    But it has risks, which are shared equally by white and black. This is the ultimate form of wealth redistribution: health redistribution.

  • Carney3

    Obviously being non-Nordic or non-white is not a disease, and while I’m the least PC guy around I can see why having that as a diagnosis would be offensive. But I’m betting the clinic had to use a “diagnosis” field in the database because there was no available field for race or ethnicity.
