On September 18, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club announced a partnership with Konservativa Förbundet, a nonpartisan student organization with the mission of spreading conservative views among the Swedish youth.
The partnership between the two conservative organizations has plans of promoting cultural exchange by providing networking opportunities and offering members of each organization the chance to learn about the political and social context they operate in.
The NY Young Republican Club noted that Sweden became the first country to get rid of censorship and protect the freedom of the press in 1766. The Freedom of Act (Tryckfrihetsförordningen), which is descended from that Enlightenment-era law, forms an integral part of Sweden’s uncodified constitution. The U.S. followed in Sweden’s footsteps by embracing the freedom of the press through its ratification of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Although leftist Swedish governments passed laws banning “hate speech” over the past few years, free speech is still strong compared to other EU members with more draconian hate speech policies. The NY Young Republican Club and Konservativa Förbundet will hold discussions on the best practices to combat free speech infringements. They will use specific examples such as the case of Austin Tong to put free speech awareness on the map.
Swedish immigrants were one of the most important migrant groups that came to the U.S. at the end of the 19th century. 1.4 million first and second-generation Swedish immigrants lived in the U.S. by 1910. They left their mark on the frontier and prominent cities such as Chicago. Swedish Americans like John Nordstrom and Oscar Frederick founded corporations that are among the most respected in the country.
Although the use of the Swedish language decreased among Swedish migrants during World War I, Swedish Americans still maintain solid cultural institutions and the achievements of the early waves of Swedish migrants have laid the foundation for a successful migration story.
In the 21st century, Sweden and the U.S. still have strong economic ties. American companies have a strong presence in Sweden, while Swedish retailers such as H&M and IKEA have grown significantly in the U.S. market. As first world, service economies, both countries face similar challenges. Although Swedish migrants largely came to the U.S. legally in the 19th century and immediately made economic contributions, both Sweden and the U.S. are taking in large swaths of low-skilled workers who tend to be burdens on their respective countries’ welfare and social services.
The NY Young Republican Club and Konservativa Förbundet view this trend as “unsustainable.”
In its statement, the NY Young Republican Club concluded:
In addition, the New York Young Republican Club pledges to defend the rights of Swedish Americans and expatriate Swedes to exercise their cultural heritage in a proud and unabashed manner. While Midsummer New York 2020 was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic, we look forward to this annual event returning to Battery Park City in 2021.
The NY Young Republican Club has been active lately in forging alliances with different groups across the globe. BLP previously reported on one of their recent partnerships with Lega Giovani, the youth wing of the Lega party in Italy.
Populist movements across the world will need to band together and pool resources to ensure that they can fight back against their respective political establishments.
Groups like the NY Young Republican Club are leading the way in promoting such a model of international cooperation.

Tom Cotton Calls Out Joe Biden for His Pro-Amnesty Comments at the Last Debate
At Least One Senator Has the Stones To Call Out Democrats’ Immigration Plan to Transform the Country
After former Vice President Joe Biden declared at the presidential debate last week that Americans “owe” Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to illegal aliens, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton quickly pounced on Biden’s pro-amnesty declaration.
“We do not owe anything to these illegal aliens,” Cotton said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily interview with Alex Marlow. “They should be grateful that they’ve been tolerated in this country for all these years,” he declared.
This remark came the day after Biden called for a mega amnesty of the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S.
I am going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people and all of those so-called ‘dreamers,’ those DACA kids, they are going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship … They [DACA migrants] have been here — many of them are model citizens. Over 20,000 of them are first responders out there taking care of people during this crisis. We owe them. We owe them.
Cotton was quick to respond to Biden’s remarks:
He didn’t just say that we’re gonna give them an amnesty in the first hundred days — encouraging a rush to our border over the next six months — he said that we have to do it because we owe it to these illegal aliens.
We owe nothing to illegal aliens. We owe a duty to American citizens to help them get back on their feet and get back to work. And that’s true whether you know whether your parents came over on the Mayflower or it’s true whether you came here the right way, the legal way, and just took the oath of citizenship last week. That’s who we owe something to — to American citizens, not to the foreigners.
In Biden’s plan for mass amnesty, there was no real attempt to at least shore up border security or clamp down on visa fraud, which Cotton highlighted:
Biden is saying ‘I’m gonna send an amnesty bill to the Congress in my first hundred days without asking anything in return, without trying to secure our border, without enforcing immigration at workplaces against unscrupulous employers, without cracking down on visa fraud’
In Cotton’s view, the Democrats are “now the party of open borders, mass migration, and blanket amnesty … that’s a big shift and from where the Democrats were just eight years ago.”
Though Cotton has very hawkish views on foreign policy, his immigration views on are in line with Middle Americans. Immigration patriotism would be best served by politicians who prioritize policing our border, ports, and customs office, as opposed to countries who don’t bend the knee to the foreign policy blob’s demands.
When Cotton talks about immigration, he at his best. This issue is of critical importance to America and the GOP’s ability to stay competitive. Not only does mass migration disproportionately benefit Big Capital thanks to the depression of worker wages, it also create a massive voting bloc that will benefit the Democratic Party in future elections.
It’s time for Americans to realize what’s at stake in this election and vote for Donald Trump.
