Fox News Uses Fake “Swedish Security Adviser” With Criminal Record to Hype Trump’s Fake Swedish Terror Attack

(Before It's News)

Today we have an absolutely classic example of fake news to
report, as Fox News talking head Bill O’Reilly interviews Nils
Bildt, a man he identifies as “a Swedish defense and national
security advisor.” O’Reilly is, of course, trying to continue
hyping Donald Trump’s lies about a nonexistent Swedish terror
attack, by promoting more lies that Sweden has turned into a
nightmare hellscape of terror and explosions and rapes, all caused
by refugees and immigrants from Muslim countries.

Just one small problem for Fox and O’Reilly; Nils Bildt is
actually a convicted criminal with "http://www.dn.se/nyheter/varlden/fake-sweden-expert-on-fox-news-has-criminal-convictions-in-us-no-connection-to-swedish-security/"
target="_blank">no connection to Swedish national security
.

Yes, that’s right. Fox News tried to shore up Donald Trump’s
fake news with a fake security expert. And not only that — he’s a
criminal. Excellent work as usual, Bill-o.

Friday the question was the focus of debate during the
conservative Fox-presenter Bill O’Reillys show, where Nils Bildt
confirmed Donald Trumps negative view of Sweden. Nils Bildt was
introduced by Fox as a ”Swedish defense and national security
advisor”, which has caused more than a few raised eyebrows.

Marie Pisäter at the Swedish Defense Ministry says that no-one
called Nils Bildt works there. ”We have no spokesman by that name”,
she said. The Foreign Office also denies that he works there. ”We
do not know who he is.”

Nils Bildt is the son of Sven Tolling, well know in Swedish
equestrian circles. Nils Bildt emigrated from Sweden in 1994. Nine
years later he changed his last name from Tolling to Bildt, and he
now runs several security companies in the United States. His last
known address, according to Swedish registers, is in Tokyo. It is
unclear if his companies are still in business.

Nils Bildt, who spoke on Fox News about crime in Sweden, is
convicted of a violent offence himself, according to documents from
Arlington General District Court in Virginia. Bildt was arrested on
the 19th of June, 2014, for assaulting a law enforcement person and
for obstruction of justice, after threatening an official. He was
sentenced to one year in prison on the 10th of November the same
year. He was also convicted of public inebriation at the same time.
Nils Bildt, in an e-mail to DN, says he is ”unaware of the
allegations” and therefore cannot comment.

[...]

Johan Wiktorin, a former defense analyst at the Military
Intelligence and Security Service, MUST, says that he has never
heard of Nils Bildt. ”He is unknown in Sweden as an expert on
national security. The depiction of Sweden as a problem country in
American media is a disturbing trend.”
