Remember early in President Trump’s term when he made remarks about Sweden’s rise in violent crime? He was mocked on the world stage for ever uttering such a thing.
CNN wrote this at the time in 2017:
Trump’s reference to the Scandinavian nation, known for liberally accepting Syrian refugees, originally occurred during his Saturday speech.
“We’ve got to keep our country safe,” he said. “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. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris.”
The comments appeared to refer to recent terror attacks in Germany and elsewhere, but no such attack has occurred in Sweden. That led some on Twitter to speculate he might have watched the Fox News report.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters earlier Sunday the President was “talking about rising crime and recent incidents in general and not referring to a specific incident.”
She reiterated that Trump did not mean to say “last night” but was referring to the rise in crime in the country.
Meanwhile, the official Swedish embassy responded to those asking about what happened Friday night by saying: “Unclear to us what President Trump was referring to. Have asked US officials for explanation.”
Well, on Sunday the Swedish Prime Minister was asked about a certain subject the left mocked Trump for bringing up: the rise in violent crime in Sweden. Of course, being the ever obedient liberal, he refused to even consider that the rise in immigration has played a part.
When asked by the host of the Agenda programme Anders Holmberg about links between mass migration and gang violence, Löfven was dismissive of any connection, blaming poverty and unemployment rates instead.
“The segregation is because there is too low employment and too high unemployment in these areas. But that would have been the same regardless of who had lived there. If you put people born in Sweden under the same conditions, you get the same result,” the Swedish leader said.
Löfven went even further, claiming that without the migration crisis of 2015, the country would still be facing the same problem: “Because of the economic gaps, the social injustices would have been the same.”
Several prior reports conflict with Löfven’s statements, including a report from September by newspaper Expressen that claimed the majority of suspects in shooting cases in the multicultural city of Malmö were from migrant backgrounds.
Another study, conducted by public broadcaster SVT, revealed last year that the majority of sex attackers were also from migrant backgrounds. As many as eight in ten assault rapes — in which the victim did not know their attacker — were committed by migrants.
Maybe the Swedish PM doesn’t understand how data and statistics work. If there is an increase in immigration, and a rise in gang violence follows, it can be safe to assume that these immigrants are at least playing somewhat of a role.
Denmark literally had to shut its border down because of how bad things are getting in the Nordic nation.
That’s how far liberals are willing to go to appear “tolerant”. They will literally let their countries burn to the ground just so they don’t come off as “mean”, or potentially “racist”. At some point, you’ve got to call a spade a spade. It just so happens that these spades like to wear suicide vests.
