Everyday Life in Multicultural Sweden

Germany has solved its Muslim migrant crime problem: whenever a Muslim migrant commits a crime the police mark it down as right-wing violence. In the meantime the country is being overrun by Middle Eastern criminal gangs. There, that’ll teach them.

On a per capita basis Sweden surpassed even Angela Merkel’s Germany in opening its arms to Muslim migrants. How’s that working out? Politico reports the bad news:

Sweden may be known for its popular music, IKEA and a generous welfare state. It is also increasingly associated with a rising number of Islamic State recruits, bombings and hand grenade attacks.

In a period of two weeks earlier this year, five explosions took place in the country. It’s not unusual these days — Swedes have grown accustomed to headlines of violent crime, witness intimidation and gangland executions. In a country long renowned for its safety, voters cite “law and order” as the most important issue ahead of the general election in September.

Sweden is paying a price for its multiculturalism, for its willingness to sacrifice the lives of its citizens to a dumb idea. In another place and time it would have been called human sacrifice:

Gang-related gun murders, now mainly a phenomenon among men with immigrant backgrounds in the country’s parallel societies, increased from 4 per year in the early 1990s to around 40 last year. Because of this, Sweden has gone from being a low-crime country to having homicide rates significantly above the Western European average. Social unrest, with car torchings, attacks on first responders and even riots, is a recurring phenomenon.

Shootings in the country have become so common that they don’t make top headlines anymore, unless they are spectacular or lead to fatalities. News of attacks are quickly replaced with headlines about sports events and celebrities, as readers have become desensitized to the violence. A generation ago, bombings against the police and riots were extremely rare events. Today, reading about such incidents is considered part of daily life.

The rising levels of violence have not gone unnoticed by Sweden’s Scandinavian neighbors. Norwegians commonly use the phrase “Swedish conditions” to describe crime and social unrest. The view from Denmark was made clear when former President of NATO and Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in an interview on Swedish TV: “I often use Sweden as a deterring example.”

Of course, the weak-kneed Swedish government is attacking the problem. Which problem is it attacking? Certainly not the crime problem. It is attacking its PR problem. It is trying to quash its reputation for being the rape and crime capital of the Western world by ramping up its PR budget. You can’t make this stuff up:

In response, the Swedish government has launched an international campaign for “the image of Sweden” playing down the rise in crime, both in its media strategy and through tax-funded PR campaigns. During a visit to the White House in March, Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven admitted that his country has problems with crime and specifically shootings, but denied the existence of no-go zones. Sweden’s education minister, Gustav Fridolin, traveled to Hungary last week with the same message.

Of course, it’s just another big lie:

In March, Labor Market Minister Ylva Johansson appeared on the BBC, where she claimed that the number of reported rapes and sexual harassment cases “is going down and going down and going down.” In fact, the opposite is true, which Johansson later admitted in an apology.

And another big lie:

But the reality is different for those on the ground: The head of the paramedics’ union Ambulansförbundet, Gordon Grattidge, and his predecessor Henrik Johansson recently told me in an interview that some neighborhoods are definitely no-go for ambulance drivers — at least without police protection.

And another big lie:

Similarly, in an op-ed for the Washington Post, former Prime Minister Carl Bildt described the country’s immigration policy as a success story. He did not elaborate on violent crime. After repeated attacks against Jewish institutions in December — including the firebombing of a synagogue in Gothenburg — Bildt took to the same paper to claim that anti-Semitism is not a major problem in Sweden.

When the Times of London reported on migrant crime in Sweden, local authorities were outraged that someone could be telling the truth about their country:

Sometimes it takes an outsider to put things in perspective. A recent piece by Bojan Pancevski in London’s Sunday Times put a spotlight on immigration and violent crime. The article caused a scandal in Sweden and was widely seen as part of the reason why the British and Canadian foreign ministries issued travel advice about the country, citing gang crime and explosions. “They make it sound as if violence is out of control,” said Stefan Sintéus, Malmö’s chief of police.

It didn’t seem to occur to the police chief that both the travel advice and the article could reflect the same underlying reality. After all, only a few days earlier, a police station in Malmö was rocked by a hand grenade attack. Earlier the same month, a police car in the city was destroyed in an explosion.

Officials may be resigned to the situation. But in a Western European country in peacetime, it is reasonable to view such levels of violence as out of control.

We conclude that in multicultural Sweden, run by and for feminists, rape is rampant, migrant crime is rampant,violence is rampant and dozens of neighborhoods are no-go zones. The Swedes might feel especially virtuous about their high ideals, but their migrant population sees things more clearly and is happy to exploit its manifest weakness.

Malmo is the center, though Stockholm has been coming on strong in the last few years.

The rot runs deep. I asked a Swedish exchange student what she and her parents thought about the rise in crime, and how she thought the average Swede viewed it. She said there was no rise in crime. I asked her specifically about Malmo and she replied "We don't go there."

Throughout Europe, and I suppose, the world, the crime by ME "refugees" concentrates around city centers first, so people solve that by just avoiding those places and pretending they aren't there. It puts me in mind of Cowslip's Warren in Watership Down

Enchanting video with Phoebe Greenwood, who interviews members of the youth organisation of the Swedish Democrats. Phoebe Greenwood writes for the Guardian, she has been called a ‘journavist’: someone promoting a political agenda by means of what the public assumes to be objective reporting. Why that is so becomes painfully obvious in the interviews. Video dates from 2015. All that was said then by the Swedish democrats has gotten worse in later years and the end is not in sight.

As I've said before, I wonder when Swedish men will seek their Inner Vikings, and turn them loose.
