Like little stars.
Imagine a brutal, totalitarian nightmare regime that commits unspeakably sadistic acts of cruelty on an industrial scale and destroys its citizens’ hopes, families and lives without a second thought.
A decent description of North Korea today? Yes.
A chilling vision of Sweden’s dismal future? According to the Christian Broadcasting Network, also yes.
In a remarkable report broadcast on Wednesday, televangelist Pat Robertson’s CBN informed its audience that Sweden, long believed to be a healthy liberal democracy, was well on its way to becoming the Orwellian hellscape that is North Korea. And, as is so often the case (at least on CBN) it’s the p.c. police who are to blame — specifically, those p.c. police who are assigned to the Islamophobia and xenophobia precincts.
CBN reporter Dale Hurd had the big scoop. “Sweden has been compared to a couple of nations which also tried to build perfect societies,” he explains, “[like] North Korea and the Soviet Union.”
While Hurd was sure to note that, unlike in North Korea, in Sweden, the government is not able to seize you in the middle of the night and send you to a concentration camp and/or murder you on the spot, he also warned that if you have the wrong kind of opinions in Sweden, “your life could become very unpleasant.”
After taking in Hurd’s disturbing report, Robertson warned that, if Americans aren’t careful, they may one day see their beloved USA follow Sweden’s path. “To think they can be killed by political correctness,” Robertson said of Sweden, “shows what can happen here.”

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
