Sweden has been one of the countries which has absorbed the most number of migrants per capita throughout Europe. We wish that we could tell you that things have worked out well there, but the facts definitely don’t bear that out.
According to a report in PJ Media, diversity-obsessed liberals in Sweden have been rocked by gang violence in recent months, as groups of individuals have torched cars like a “military operation.”
The latest incident happened in Sweden’s second-largest city.
“Youths torched and vandalized scores of cars in the Swedish city of Gothenburg and surrounding towns and Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said on Tuesday the disturbances looked organized ‘almost like a military operation,'” Reuters reported.
Sound simple enough? Not quite.
“Note the obfuscatory word, ‘youths,'” PJ Media reported, “which has become a standard journalistic euphemism for ‘young Muslim males.'”
“It was unclear what triggered Monday night’s unrest but Sweden has seen a rise in violence in areas with high unemployment and other social problems and the incident echoed rioting in the capital Stockholm in 2013,” Reuters reported.
In that case, the BBC stated “local people said the motive of the youths making trouble was anger over joblessness.”
“Sweden has seen the biggest increase in inequality of any developed country over the past 25 years,” they added.
Whatever the case, the unrest has manifest itself in vandalism against cars.
“Mounting public concern about gang-related and other violence has become a central issue in campaigning ahead of a national election on Sept. 9,” Reuters noted.
The unrest doesn’t seem to be moving the law-and-order party any further up the polls. Surveys show the Sweden Democrats, a Europskeptic party which is hard on crime and immigration, lagging in third place behind the Social Democrat Party and the Sweden Green Party after leading early polling.
“In 2015, the right-wing SD party pushed back against the arrival of 163,000 asylum-seekers to Sweden in 2015 during the refugee crisis,” the U.K. Express noted.
“It helped contribute to the increase of the foreign-born population from 11 percent at the turn of the century to 18 percent this year.
“The rightwingers topped three previous polls in July and August, gaining popularity for their anti-immigration stance.”
