The ENTIRE Swedish Home Guard Was Just Mobilized

A few weeks back, the government of Sweden sent out a booklet to every household in the country urging citizens to prepare for war or other crises. A few months back, they told citizens that they should be prepared to last for at least a week without any help from the government. Last night, in the most unsettling move yet, they mobilized the entire Swedish Home Guard for an “unannounced preparedness exercise.” All 40 battalions have been activated, effective immediately.

The report is on the Försvarsmakten website, which is the official website of the Swedish Armed Forces. Here’s the English translation:

For the first time since 1975, the Armed Forces carry out an unannounced emergency preparedness control of the entire Hemvärnet. All staff around Sweden who are part of one of the 40 home war battalions and who have the opportunity to attend the evening of 5 June and during the national day will be in charge of service. The alarm is ordered by the Armed Forces and participation in the exercise is voluntary.

“We are committed to strengthening Sweden’s defense and increasing our operational capabilities. This is a way to do it. This exercise is great in several ways. We are testing the emergency chain for almost half our intervention organization, we have not done since 1975, says Micael Bydén, the commander.

Initially, staff – from north to south – will be contacted and invited to stand for service. Thereafter, relations will begin to solve tasks, such as protection, guarding and patrolling. During the national day, home care personnel will be seen in many places around the country, from ports and airports to streets and squares. Since it is a voluntary exercise, the Armed Forces can not force anyone to settle, but the chief commander shows great confidence in his staff.

What this means

The Hemvärnet is the Swedish equivalent of the American National Guard.

The Home Guard – National Security Forces (Swedish: Hemvärnet – Nationella Skyddsstyrkorna) is a military reserve force of the Swedish Armed Forces. It was formally established on May 29, 1940, during World War II upon popular demand. While originally composed of former militia groups, today it comprises half of the Swedish Army, thus constituting the basis of the territorial defense of Sweden.

The Swedish National Home Guard consists mainly of local rapid response units, numbering 17,000 of the 22,000 total Home Guard strength, organized in 40 battalions, with 23 associated auxiliary defense organizations. (source)

This “unannounced preparedness exercise” may be just that – a readiness drill. But there are a few things that ring some warning bells for me:

  • A “drill” of this magnitude hasn’t happened since 1975 at the height of the Cold War
  • It’s occurring on the heels of two other warnings of looming war or crises
  • And keep in mind that the war preparedness book that was recently sent out mentioned the possibility of re-establishing conscription (the draft), too.

The Swedish website, The Local, reports:

The exercise is part of Sweden’s national effort to rebuild its Cold War Total Defence strategy in response to an increasingly belligerent Russia. The last time Sweden’s Armed Forces called up the entire Home Guard at once was in 1975 at the height of the Cold War.
Just a week ago Sweden’s Civil Contingencies Agency sent out its “If Crisis or War Comes” brochure to more than four million Swedish households, advising them to stock up on water, tinned and dry food, and other essentials to increase Sweden’s resilience.
The country also last month reestablished a regiment on the Baltic island of Gotland.
In the event of an invasion, Sweden’s Home Guard is responsible for protecting the core functions of the Swedish state, guarding government agencies, airports, or ports, so that the professional army is free for front-line duties. (source)

It would be wise to be on the lookout for something to happen soon.  What that “something” might be, of course, is open to speculation.

What do you think is going on?

Could they be preparing to quell a migrant uprising in the no-go zones? Back in January, the Swedish Prime Minister said he did not “rule out the use of the army to end gang violence.” Or are they truly concerned about a threat from Russia? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Thank you to Toby in Sweden for the tip!

    I’d wager the parasiites are grasping at straws, to distract the real Swedish people from what they are doing to them. Whipping up fear is a good way to divert people’s attentions from the third-world crisis that Sweden is becoming. And, most Swedes, being brow-beaten cowards, will be only too happy to willingly focus on whatever else they are told to…

  2. Menzoberranzan says:

    They certainly have a scum muslim problem.

    • Stuart says:

      …. yes they do and a calculated bet based on the govenment’s past behavior would be that the Home Guard is preparing to protect those very Muslims from the righteous retribution of the Swedish citizenry.
      We shall see.

    • Historian says:

      Like the USA, Sweden has a Muslim problem, because they have a 3ew problem.

    • Infidel says:

      By “racist” you must mean liberal, black, or muslim, because they are THE very most bigoted racists there are. So, given that, yes we do have a racist problem, and all racist liberals, blacks, and muslims need to be exterminated with due prejudice.

      Make America Pristine Again. Take out the trash.

  3. The Swedes have surrendered to the Islamic hordes.
    This is just kabokie showmanship

  4. Richard says:

    Maybe they will clean out the muzzies…

    • john stiner says:

      So-called “white flight” is a common phenomenon in Sweden, according to a new doctoral thesis from Linnaeus University.

      When a residential area reaches a certain degree of ethnic diversity, the Swedes tend to flee.

      In the dissertation the economist Emma Neuman examines differences between groups on the Swedish housing and employment. The results show that native-born tend to move away from, or avoid moving into residential areas when it reaches a certain trigger point in the share of non-EU foreign-born.

      Swedes migratory behavior therefore seems to be an important factor behind the rise of ethnic segregation in Sweden.

      According to research, segregation in childhood can have an impact on economic outcomes in adulthood. The children of native-born who have grown up in areas with a high proportion of foreign-born tend to have poorer labor market outcomes and are less likely to begin college or university education.

      – Yes, we found a “tipping point” of about 3-4 percent, says Emma Neuman, who is a National Economic researcher at the Linnaeus University. When immigrants become so many in a residential area, the native Swedes begin to move from there.

      A study conducted between 1990-2007 shows the same, and what many already knew.

      – The impact was actually stronger in the 1990s, and then the “tipping point” was slightly lower, ie Swedish-born were more likely to move as soon as only a few immigrants moved in, says Emma Neuman. It might be interpreted to mean that many, after all, has become a little more tolerant, but the overall trend seems difficult to curb.

      This does not apply to just any immigrants – immigrants from Europe gives no moving effect, but it is the overseas migrants who have the neighborhood to start moving. Cultures collide quite simply, there’s whole blocks that can be transformed in just a few years, a situation few politicians and journalists need to experience.

      Where the Swedish middle class mothers moves away from multiculturalism – while they say they experience this as enrichment, shows the complexity.

      – Many speak nicely of ethnic diversity as an enriching factor, but when choosing a school for their children or where to move to, the question becomes very concrete, and then one often choose some form of ‘Swedishness,’ says Maja Lily, who is a sociologist at the University of Örebro.

      The dissertation says nothing about the violence, threats, rapes, robberies, etc. which is the main reason why Swedes flee of course.

      Meanwhile, emigration abroad reaches record levels. Last year more people left the country than during the peak reached in the late 1800s when there was an agriculture crisis in Sweden:

  5. Buffalolips says:

    Russia doesn’t want to have anything to do with a Sweden already overrun with violent migrants. Russia probably correctly reads the situation as a national suicide in progress. No need for Russia to get involved. However if Sweden itself wants to survive this decade, Sweden’s greatest existential threat is not Russia, it is the violent migrant hordes which are growing worse by the day. It’s now or NEVER for Sweden. Russia is a problem, sure, but a problem for another day.

    • john stiner says:

      The national suicide is in progress, there is no saving the country now.

    • Jay in UK (now Latvia) says:

      Russia has no interest in Sweden as far as natural resources go.

      But if it’s a WW3 scenario, then Russia MUST occupy Sweden (and Finland, Norway, the Baltic states where I live, Poland, Denmark and probably northern Germany). It’s called ACCESS DENIAL, a military concept designed to prevent your enemy from operating on your doorstep.

      Russia actually wargamed this very, very thoroughly last fall in the Zapad 17 exercise, during which they simulated bombing raids on northern Germany and Poland. At or around that time, they also managed to temporarily knock out the satnav system over much of Scandinavia for a short period, which presumably has contributed greatly to the current nervousness on display from the Swedes.

  6. Fritz says:

    Wait a minute! It says that participation in this exercise is voluntary? A voluntary mobilization is a contradiction in terms. You’re either called up or you’re not so this can’t be in response to anything too awful serious. It’s mighty weak sabre rattling if the Swedes are trying to impress the Russians. It’s hard to believe they would actually do anything about their internal problems either since they don’t seem to perceive that they have any. This sounds more like they are testing their alert roster phone tree which is something a reserve force should be doing all the time instead of the first time since 1975. This isn’t a big deal IMHO.

  7. Son of Liberty says:

    Why are the comments so sarcastic. I think it must be something genuine, whether Muslim or Russian, or a possible combination of both – IDK.

    You don’t call out the ‘National Guard’ without there being something serious behind it – even if it is voluntary. A voluntary calling up of the Home Guard would put those who responded in a position to step into their jobs immediately, and assist those who failed -for what ever reasons – to report.

    This is not just for funzies boys and girls, it needs to be taken for the serious call up that it really is.

    Blessings on them, and all of us as well.

    Son of Liberty

  8. Harbard says:

    Well…since 1975, perhaps it’s about time to see what is left of their Home Guard, just saying. Everyone is right, the Russians are not a danger to the Swedes, it’s the Muslims! I doubt that Sweden has been in a real fight for what…400 years?

  9. Big Mouth says:

    Let’s hope they’re waking up to the threat they face from the Muslim hordes. In 3 generations they will be a minority in their own country. In 5 generations there won’t be a Swede. They are committing national suicide. I hope this is for real and they start breaking up the no go zones and deporting Muslims.

  10. Hmmm

    The beautiful Swedish women and children should go where there are no migrants. Then deal with the problem.

    There are a number of different issues to contend with which will require some changes to the power structure. The situation can be rectified.

    I doubt Swedes are even aware of what is happening. Their lying media is worse than ours.

  11. Sgt. Dale says:

    Interesting!!! Is it just a “call up” to see where they stand??? Or are there plans in the works to do something about the muslime turds, and their no go zones???? Need Ammo I got some!

    Russia really doesn’t want Sweden now because of the problems they have. But remember how the Russians handle muslim problems. “Shoot first and then let God sort it out”.

  12. Press 9 for English says:

    They will do whatever they are told to do and also continue allowing their own nation to be infiltrated by foreigners just as does the USA and it’s sheeple.

  13. Illini Warrior says:

    this ties in with the Swedish gooberment’s preps against the Russian aggression – NOT anything to do with the Muslims ….

    Sweden has forsaken their 200 years of neutrality and joining the US/NATO in informal military alliances & prepping ….

    Someone (USA????) has shown all those Lapland Countries what Putin’s Russia has planned – they are ALL on the way to upgrading & preparing for a war – none are going down without a fight …

  14. AUBroker says:

    SWEDISH HOME GUARD ACTIVATED.!!!!!!

    As a result there will be a shortage of Swedish meatballs through-out the world.

  15. Jim in Va. says:

    Voluntary? That should cure anything….that’ll scare the muslim population.

  16. richard says:

    The barbarians are already inside the gates .

  17. Anonymous says:

    The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! (really?) snore

  18. aljamo says:

    Why didn’t these European countries mobilize before the muslims poured in? Someone other than these governments calling the shots? The usual suspects? The same entity that controls the US.?

  19. So much negativity, so many tough armchair warriors saying asinine things. If they are being called up against mooslims, good, if it’s training, good. Could it be too late? Maybe, but at least if it turns out they have had enough, and are willing to kill mooslims, good.

    I don’t see or hear of such a thing taking place in our FUSA. And your a moron if you say, ” it cant happen here.” Because they have infiltrated this country, and I have yet heard or seen any resistance, real resistance against mooslims, crooked politicians, the extreme left imbeciles, or the traitorous rinos on the right. Chew on that for a few. American pussification is almost totally complete.

    And don’t say bullshit, an entire state was just told they are going to be rationed water in 2020 by one person. Back in the day he would have been tar and feathered, then hung. There is a song called “where have all the cowboys gone?” Exactly…

  20. Most of the Home Guard won’t be able to fit into their uniforms. Obese with high blood pressure from the sound of it. Once they get them there, they probably will require they attend classes in Sexual Harassment, Cultural Diversity, Diversity in the Workplace, etc. The Swedish government is probably trying to assess just how much work it is going to take to get the Home Guard “battle-ready”. I wonder how “battle-ready” our National Guard is?

  21. Chunk says:

    It’s obvious that Sweden, along with most of Europe, has screwed up badly by allowing a sudden horde of Muslim immigrants into their countries.

    Smart people learn from their mistakes.
    Really smart people learn from other people’s mistakes.

  22. DMONIC says:

    Wheres HICKS with his scientist friend when we need him? I am sure he could tell us whats REALLY going on. I am sure its part of an imminent Chi-Comm invasion of Sweden….

  23. USPatriotOne says:

    People need to read the Book “Bible Prophecy – Signs of the Apocalypse” and you will see what is coming to this world. God/Jesus is coming and these Satan driven Countries and people will be held accountable for their TREASON against GOD. Thank God we in America have President Trump and many others like Alex Jone and InfoWars to stand against these Demons of Christian/Jews of the World. God help us all, PLEASE..!!!

  24. KarVer says:

    Im a lil surprised America dosent have volunteered home guard, over the age of 21 for national security services. When activated for some training or for security services rendered, dont get some pay compensation. Comprised of mostly ex military and retired law enforcement and retired firefighters, and do gooders without criminal records.

    Maybe not as “Gung-ho” as normal military or civilian law enforcement and firefighters but could be beneficial

  25. Max Power says:

    Of course this exercise is not about Russia. Sweden is not in the Great Russia zone of danger like Ukraine. It is to quash a possible uprising in ghettos like Malmo.
