    A$AP Rocky, Trump fans call for boycott of Swedish brands

    By Rachel Tesler Published July 28, 2019
    FOXBusiness

    After A$AP Rocky was charged with assault and detained by Swedish officials, fans are fighting back with calls to boycott Swedish brands, claiming the country’s treatment of the “Praise the Lord” rapper is racist.

    His trial begins Tuesday amidst several bizarre events, including an A$AP Rocky fan threatening to blow up the Swedish embassy in Washington, D.C. and President Trump blasting Swedish leadership for its mistreatment of Rocky and letting down the “African-American community.” The president said he spoke with Sweden’s prime minister Saturday about the jailed rapper and “offered to personally vouch for his bail.”
    Supporters of Rocky and the president called for the boycott last week with the growing demand to #FreeRocky. #Boycottsweden is trending on Twitter Opens a New Window. targeting Ikea, Absolut Vodka, Volvo and Spotify. #Boycottikea also trended on Twitter.
    He faces up to two years in prison and fines, as prosecutors allege that he and members of his team assaulted defendants over a public brawl involving headphones on June 30th. Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, claim they acted in self-defense, but he will remain in a Kronberg prison before pleading his case.

    Rev. Al Sharpton enters #JusticeForRocky fray, pleads for A$AP Rocky detained in Sweden


    A$AP Rocky has received an outpouring of support following reports on his treatment in a Swedish jail following a physical altercation.
    The #JusticeForRocky hashtag has surfaced on social media in recent days, with fans and celebrities rallying together to demand the chart-topping hip-hop artist be released.
    Civil rights activist and media personality Rev. Al Sharpton is joining the fray in support of the Harlem-born lyricist.
    On Wednesday, Sharpton met with Renee Black, A$AP Rocky’s mother, and other relatives of the men arrested in Stockholm on June 30, at his National Action Network corporate offices in New York.





    Sweden rejects Trump demand to free rapper A$AP Rocky

    President has been repeatedly told that angry tweets will make no difference, Swedish government says

    It comes after the president sent a barrage of angry tweets ordering the country to free the rapper after he was charged with assault.
    Sweden said that Mr Trump's tweets will not help free the rapper because the country's judicial system is independent from politics.

    The Swedish government said that it had repeatedly told the US president that his interventions would not help. But Mr Trump continued to tweet, with his latest post including an angry outburst at the country.

    You and danno seem to be some of the more passionate supporters of MAGa here; if both of you support this boycott, that could indicate strong popularity of the boycott across US and massive impact on Swedish exports.

    I don't want anything to do with either side, I don't condone what either side did and I don't like people acting like savages in the street. Everyone involved should have been quickly expelled from the country. No need to lock anyone up, just get rid of them, possibly after fining them for the costs incurred responding to the incident.

    And I don't have a problem with anyone boycotting Swedish products.

    So being harassed and then assaulted as you peaceful mind your own business waking down a street. That is equivalent. You Swedes are such pussies. Enjoy your diversity.

    Huh?

    Drugged-up Afghan harasses/assaults people in the street - I don't condone that.
    Four guys beating the snot out of him - I don't condone that, either.

    From my perspective, there are no good guys here. None of these people pass the neighbor test.

    That might go with his trade and music genre, and he seems to have used even more graphic language in media:


    Caution: Graphic langauge

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A3L433GAgE


    He seems to have strong support from FLOTUS, Ivanka, Kushner, BLM activist Kim Kardashian, Rev Sharpton among others.. that might be the reason MAGA decided tp show strong leadership on this. And it happens to align with his America First agenda and he may also see it as an oppotunity to showcase his deal making skills.


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfbV3CCE9ak



    Latest reports suggest US Sec of State has also been briefed on this issue, all hands seem to be on the deck for this one now besides all the MAGA White House senior leadership.


    Ex-Swedish Prime Minister Warns Trump To Back Off A$AP Rocky Case

    “Political interference in the process is distinctly off limits,” Carl Bildt wrote. “Clear?”

    By Amy Russo
    Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt rebuked President Donald Trump on Friday for demanding A$AP Rocky’s freedom, warning him not to interfere in the country’s legal process on the American rapper’s behalf.
    “The rule of the law applies to everyone equally and is exercised by an independent judiciary,” Bildt tweeted. “That’s the way it is in the US, and that’s certainly the way it is in Sweden. Political interference in the process is distinctly off limits! Clear?”

    But have to say bit surprised that this boycott did not have overwhelming interest and support here, was under the impression there were many passionate and motivated America-First supporters here these days who would stand with POTUS on this.

    Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, claim they acted in self-defense
    I’m not a lawyer, but they could claim that the Muslims “started it”. Stomping on heads while they are on the ground does not quite fit the “self-defense” angle.

    I was under the impression both sides had Muslim heritage, Somali and Afghan heritage folks, although have not looked up their current faith systems and not being reported in news.

    On a related note, majority of GOP even saw a Christian Church going African-American Obama as a 'Muslim' , so for many in MAGA's base such fact checking might not even matter.

    Swedish Court does not seem to care a lot about sentiments of President of US, FLOTUS, civil rights leaders Sharpton, Kim Kardashian, Ivanka, Kushner etc and has convicted A$AP of assault:


    A$AP Rocky convicted of assault by Swedish court

    By Lauren Said-Moorhouse and Per Nyberg, CNN
    Wed August 14, 2019



    Stockholm, Sweden (CNN)US rapper A$AP Rocky has been found guilty of assault and handed a conditional sentence after he was involved in a street brawl in Stockholm.
    The performer and two members of his entourage were convictedby a Swedish court, following a confrontation in the Swedish capital on June 30.
    In its ruling on Wednesday, Stockholm District Court rejected the performer's claim that the trio had been acting in self-defense.
    "Based on statements from two witnesses, the court finds that the defendants were not subject to a current or imminent criminal attack," the ruling said.
    "Therefore, they were not in a situation where they were entitled to use violence in self-defense. Nor could they have perceived themselves to be in such a situation."

    Trump sent America’s top hostage negotiator to Sweden for A$AP Rocky’s trial

    A$AP Rocky isn’t Sweden’s hostage. The White House sent its hostage envoy there anyway.
    Rapper A$AP Rocky’s trial began in Stockholm, Sweden, on Tuesday, and the Trump administration sent a very notable guest: the US presidential envoy for hostage affairs.
    The New York Times and Politico reported that Robert C. O’Brien, the US top diplomat responsible for negotiating the release of Americans held abroad, is in Stockholm to monitor the trial of A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers.
    Rocky and two members of his entourage have been charged with assault. His arrest became a sore point in the US-Sweden relationship last week when President Donald Trump personally intervened in the case, speaking directly with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, and then made that involvement very public on Twitter.




    U.S. warned Sweden of 'negative consequences' if ASAP Rocky wasn't released

    Aug. 3, 2019
    The U.S. government warned Sweden of "negative consequences" as it advocated for rapper ASAP Rocky during his trial for assault charges in Stockholm this week, according to a pair of letters released by the Swedish Prosecution Authority.
    According to the letters, obtained by NBC News partner Aftonbladet, the U.S. special presidential envoy for hostage affairs wrote to Swedish prosecutors urging them to release Rocky.
    "The government of the United States of America wants to resolve this case as soon as possible to avoid potentially negative consequences to the U.S.-Swedish bilateral relationship," Amb. Robert O'Brien wrote in the letter, dated Wednesday.
    In response Sweden's prosecutor-general, Petra Lundh, defended the independence of Swedish courts and said he therefore had to deny O'Brien's requests.
    "No other prosecutor, not even I, may interfere with a specific case or try to affect the prosecutor responsible," Lundh wrote in a letter dated Thursday.
    The letters marked the latest intervention by U.S. officials in a case that has commanded the attention of figures ranging from the president to Justin Bieber.
    Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was arrested and charged with assault over a street brawl in the Swedish capital on June 30.
    Trump began weighing in on the case last month following outcry from celebrities including reality TV star Kim Kardashian-West and musician Rod Stewart.
    Trump said he spoke to Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven asking for his release and "offered to personally vouch for his bail."

    MAGA White House succeeded in getting rapper Rocky back to US but in Sweden this story has taken a tragic turn:




    Reports: A$AP Rocky's lawyer Henrik Olssen Lilja shot, wounded in Sweden

    Maeve McDermott, USA TODAY Published 2:15 p.m. ET Sept. 6, 2019


    Henrik Olssen Lilja, the lawyer who represented A$AP Rocky in the rapper's recent assault trial in Sweden, was wounded in a shooting in Stockholm Friday morning.
    Forbes and CBS News reported that Lilja was shot in the head and chest and was transported to the hospital, with his current condition unknown.
    Carina Skagerlind, a spokesperson for the Stockholm police, told USA TODAY that one person was injured in the incident following a shooting this morning and is currently hospitalized with one additional person in custody. Skagerlind would not comment on whether Lilja was the figure injured in the shooting.
    According to the Swedish Police Authority's website, several people were questioned in the shooting and an arrest was made.
    Lilja initially represented Rocky in the case, but was later replaced by Slobodan Jovicic, who served as Rocky's defense lawyer during the trial.
    Rocky – real name Rakim Mayers – was found guilty last month by a Swedish jury of assaulting 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari during a fight in Stockholm on June 30.

    Before the trial, Rocky, Rispers Jr. and Corniel served nearly a month behind bars before their release on Aug. 2, with President Donald Trump attempting to intervene on their behalf by contacting Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven and offering to personally guarantee bail. While Lofven declined to get involved in the case, Trump later cheered the release of Rocky and his bodyguards.
