You might recall that President Trump got in hot water when he spoke last year about how Sweden was becoming, well, you know, one of those Sh**hole countries.
The once-peaceful country has seen a huge uptick in violence, rape and terror, since it began welcoming the Third World into its cities more than a decade ago.
Other countries of Western Europe, the U.S. and Canada are doing the same thing, welcoming too many migrants without requiring them to assimilate, but Sweden is devolving at a faster pace because of its size — just 10 million people.
Trump, at a February 2017 rally in Florida, suggested Sweden had been transformed by its suicidal immigration policies.
“You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”
He was immediately rebuked by CNN, Politico and elitists everywhere. Twitter went bonkers with mocking remarks about Trump’s misinformed, xenophobic comment about Sweden, that still peaceful wonderland of socialistic bliss.
Diplomats at the Swedish Embassy played dumb, like they didn’t know what Trump was talking about, and asked him for clarification.
Well, the problems in Sweden have only gotten worse since Trump made those comments one year ago.
Just because the mainstream media chooses not to report on the growing violence and rapes in Sweden does not mean it’s not happening. Problems with mob violence, riots, sexual assaults and even grenade attacks in Swedish cities like Malmö stretch back to 2011 and continue to fester.
The left is particularly sensitive about Sweden and will do everything it can to obfuscate the truth of what is going on there because Sweden has always held a special place in their hearts. It’s a leftist utopia in spades, a microcosm of what the American left hopes to create in this country: Division, chaos, distrust, violence and extremism on all sides in cities where people had long ago learned to live in relative peace.
The latest news to come out of Sweden is that the mosques there want to expand the blasting of their Friday call to prayer over loudspeakers.
The Växjö Muslim Foundation submitted an application to the police requesting permission to send out a three-minute Islamic call to prayer each Friday from a loudspeaker attached to the front of a mosque in the city’s Araby district.
“We are just wanting Sweden to allow Muslims in Växjö to feel even more at home. The Islamic community should be proud of their culture, and not feel like they have to hide,” said Imam Ismail Abu Helal.
In other words, the imams want Sweden to feel more like Afghanistan and Somali than Sweden.
The imam told Smålandsposten he believes allowing the call to prayer would help enable Muslims to better integrate into the city, Breitbart reports.
As I explain in my book, “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad,” there is a big difference between “integration” and “assimilation.”
Those on the left who worship at the altar of multiculturalism — whether in Sweden, Germany or the United States — do not expect immigrants to assimilate into Western society. Assimilation requires the immigrant to conform, at least in basic ways, to the culture of the host nation. Instead, the multiculturalists call for integration, which is the exact opposite, requiring the host country to bend and conform to the culture of the immigrants.
So if the blasting of the Muslim call to prayer in exotic Arabian tones over a loudspeaker bothers you, Mr. Swede, you must be a racist or “Islamophobic.”
It’s the same mentality that has led Sweden, Germany, the UK and Canada to pass hate-speech laws that forbid their citizens from criticizing Islam or Muslims.
A 55-year-old Swedish man was put on trial and fined $1,265 recently for committing “a crime of opinion” by posting an anti-Islamic comment on Facebook.
According to Fria Tider, the man’s own wording went as follows:
“Somalis are Sunni Muslim, they have the same orientation as Saudi Arabia, with sharia law & other s*it… They account for a lot of gang crime in Sweden and other violent stuff like rapes. Afghans are also up to 80 percent Sunni, the damn pack.”
The man was speaking truth. Sweden has, in a matter of a few years, become the rape capital of Europe. It now has the second-highest rate of sexual assaults against women in the world, behind only South Africa.
But facts don’t matter to the multiculturalists. All that’s necessary for you to be guilty of a crime is for your speech to be considered offensive to Muslims.
The reverse scenario, of course, does not apply.
If a Muslim migrant says “all Swedes are racists” or a Muslim woman says “all Swedish men are rapists” that’s OK. This is how integration is designed to work. It’s a one-way street with a dead-end for anyone not wedded to multiculturalism.
And what is the gold-standard, the unwavering rule by which every good multiculturalist must abide? They say it is that all cultures are equal. But in reality the only culture that does not count for anything and is not worth defending is the native culture. All others are equal.
Some America-firsters are wisely starting to use Sweden against the left, holding it up as the poster child of what can happen to the U.S if globalist policies of open borders and multiculturalism are allowed to continue as they did under the last four administrations of Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama.
This is why Americans concerned about the influx of too many unassimilated migrants had better keep their eye on Sweden. It’s the model for us all. If Trump and his agenda fail, we are Sweden.
A Swedish police station was bombed last month, just the latest of several attacks against symbols of the Swedish state, Breitbart reports.
The grenade attack against Sweden’s police in the migrant ghetto neighborhood of Rosengård in Malmö caused no injuries, but several police cars were destroyed and the facade of the recently built police station suffered damage.
The decision to build Rosengård’s new EU-funded, security fence-ringed, and bulletproof police station came after the previous building was riddled with bullets by unknown would-be killers.
Last June, an Iraqi man traveling from Stockholm to Hallsberg by train launched a brutal knife attack on passengers after a Muslim woman in a hijab was asked to show her ticket.
The Iraqi, Karim Alaa Hussain, 25, accused them all of racism and started attacking them with a kitchen knife.
Hussain singled out one of the men in particular, striking him in the face. The man wrestled Hussain to the floor – but the Iraqi managed to break free and produced a long kitchen knife, stabbing the man four times in the side and back and inflicting critical internal wounds.
Hussain will not be deported from Sweden, Fria Tider reported.
Think of the numerous migrant attacks in the U.S. — the recent truck attack on New York City by Uzbek migrant Sayfullo Saipov, who came here on the diversity visa lottery program, and the Ports Authority bomber Akayed Ullah, who came from Muslim Bangladesh through his family’s chain migration.
Then you had the Somali refugee Dahir Adan who stabbed 10 people at the Crossroads Center Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota, in September 2016, followed by another knife attack by Somali refugee Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman at the Mall of America in Bloomington on Nov. 12, 2017. Don’t forget the Afghan refugee Ahmad Khan Rahami who wounded 29 in a pipe bomb attack on Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood and bragged about his ties to ISIS afterward.
None of these terrorists ever get deported. Several were here on green cards and at least one, Rahami, was given naturalized U.S. citizenship.
But don’t say anything bad about them. That makes you guilty of the newly created thought crime called “Islamophobia.” You will be relegated to the fringes of your proud multicultural society.
This is how civilizations die. America had better be watching Sweden, which is marching to its grave site at breakneck speed.
