Open Borders Policy in Sweden

Among the laboratories for immigration policy we have the nation of Sweden. As you might know, the bumbling Swedes have been far more gracious about admitting Muslim migrants than have many other countries. For their enlightened efforts, they have suffered severely.

Paul Joseph Watson has the story, beginning with nationwide riots over Easter weekend. (via Maggie's Farm) We could say something here about respecting other people’s religions, but it would probably fall flat.

At any rate, here is the news from Sweden, accompanied by an announcement by the Swedish Prime Minister, to the effect that the country had failed to integrate Muslim migrants.  One understands that the policies that produced this mess were largely implemented by leftist politicians.

Sweden’s failure to properly integrate large numbers of migrants has led to the creation of parallel societies and gang violence, according to left-wing Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson.

Andersson made the comments in the aftermath of nationwide riots by migrant gangs over the Easter weekend that left a hundred police officers wounded.

Sweden’s approach to Islamic extremism and its failings in accommodating large numbers of migrants is the primary cause of the disorder, according to the Prime Minister.

“Segregation has gone so far that we have parallel societies in Sweden. We live in the same country, but different realities,” said Andersson.

“Integration was poor, and alongside, we have experienced intense immigration. Our society was too weak, while money for the police and social services too little,” she added.

True enough, the country embraced weakness. It defunded the police, or at least did not spend enough money on them. The last remark, to the effect that the country did not provide enough social services is vapid. In truth, the country should never, ever have opened its borders to large groups of people who had no interest or inclination in integrating. The Muslim migrants in question saw themselves as invaders. They desired nothing but to transform Sweden, to make it more like Syria and Afghanistan.

The failure to understand this seems now to have doomed the nation of Sweden. But, at least, it will soon be joining NATO.

Anyway, German media, on cue, blamed the rioting on the right wing. This highlights the other reason why Muslim migrants and certain other groups resort to violence. They know that weak-kneed politicians will never hold them to account.

Now, Sweden is one of the most dangerous countries in Europe. Congratulations, leftists.

As we previously highlighted, German media outlets responded to violent riots in Sweden mainly involving Muslim migrants by claiming the unrest occurred as a result of “right-wing demos.”

Ukrainian refugees also expressed the desire to avoid being sent to Sweden, feeling that it was too unsafe.

Having been one of the safest countries in Europe 20 years ago before mass uncontrolled immigration, Sweden is now the continent’s second most dangerous in terms of gun crime behind only Croatia.

Last year, Germany’s Bild newspaper ran the headline: ‘Sweden is the most dangerous country in Europe.’

Statistically, here is the picture:

Shootings in Sweden hit a record high last year as authorities are increasingly unable to contain migrant gang crime. There were 46 homicides committed in 335 shootings across the country, with most of them occurring in the migrant hotspots of Malmö, Gothenburg, and Stockholm.

“Swedish residents born in another country have doubled to 2 million in the last two decades, and immigrants now represent one-fifth of all people living in this Scandinavian country, a far higher rate than neighboring countries like Finland, Norway, and Denmark, which have all taken a harder line against immigration,” reports RMX News.

“For the past 40 years, the prime minister’s social democrats have been in power for 28 years, including the last eight.”

So, if you want to see what open borders looks like, take a look at the laboratory called Sweden.

One cannot help but notice that ownership of firearms by private individuals is stringently regulated in Sweden, to the point that there is almost none. Swedish citizens are therefore at the mercy of their government when it comes to law enforcement and since the government has decided it is for the best that there be no impediment to importation of foreigners, nor any restraints imposed on their rather un-Swedish behavior, your average Swede is clearly disadvantaged in the Darwinian struggle for existence. Those whom the government has imported are clearly not restrained in their behavior by any societal norms that may have existed in Sweden prior to their arrival; they imported their tribal violence with them. Contra America, where the native population has retained its right to keep and bear arms with a significant amount of vigor. Personally, I find it unlikely that our imported population will be allowed to run quite so far and free as those in Sweden before incurring the displeasure of the armed citizenry, but I could be wrong. Thus, in an abundance of caution, I intend to avoid places where the imports tend to congregate.
