Could it be that not all cultures are equal or compatible? Sweden has been particularly stubborn in avoiding the obvious truth that knuckle-dragging Islamic tribes should be left in their own locales and not imported in massive numbers – on par with a deadly virus – deliberately designed to infect and wipe out the native population.
American Thinker But saying political correctness is strong among Swedes is an understatement: the fear of discussing anything controversial, particularly diverse immigration, is extreme, despite the Muslim rape wave.
Swedes are so silenced by PC, self-censorship and fear of being called racist that Somali refugee Amun Abdullahi(pictured) who tried unsuccessfully to report on jihad went back home to Mogadishu in disappointment.
My visit to Sweden came to mind recently when I read that a parliamentary party leader in Stockholm just proposed that Sweden’s Jews (who have lived there for centuries) should either renounce their religion or leave Sweden. After the predictable public uproar, he clarified his comments by saying everybody should take on a specifically Swedish identity and leave his or her old one behind.
Bjorn Soder was desperately trying to dodge telling the truth. The problem isn’t peaceful groups of Swedish citizens practicing their faith. The problem is violent religious groups whose name starts with an “M.” But just as with Obama, Mr. Soder could not allow himself to say the M-word.
And the ruling coalition is now trying to abolish all religious schools – not because they worry about Jews or Lutherans educating their kids the way they want to, but because they know perfectly well that violent jihad is being taught in all the Wahhabi mosques and madrassas.
Jihad is one of the five “pillars” of Islam, the obligatory duties of every Muslim. Like Obama and all the rest, Sweden’s political class is trying to say the obvious – no hate preaching, no violence – without actually saying so.
Violence. The city of Malmö, with a Muslim majority, is now the violent rape capital of Sweden. Socialist politicians are directly responsible for the suicidal mass immigration policy in Europe, where 44 million Muslims now live. Some of them seem to be assimilating to their host culture. Many are not. But the political elite everywhere in Europe can’t admit to their suicidal immigration policy mistake. Which makes it impossible for Europe to fix their self-inflicted death sentence.
In Sweden and Europe generally, nobody is yet allowed to talk about reducing mass immigration of violence-prone Muslims coming from the tribal lands of Pakistan, Afghanistan and the rest. Because that would be racist.
But back to my Swedish professor. For some reason he took the trouble to show me a lesbian café, where gorgeous young blondes, looking like identical milkmaids, were passionately kissing each other. I assume he was trying to prove how progressive and liberated people were in Sweden. I asked where the teenage boys were hanging out – there were none to be seen – but he dropped the subject.
In fact, many of the boys were busy doing the same thing in gay gathering places. Non-traditional sex is very, very prized in PC Sweden. LGBTs are a protected victim group, which means they have the power to expose, scapegoat, and, if possible, even fire dissenting heterosexuals from their jobs.
Which is why Muslim migrants from the tribal lands of Central Asia see their hosts as ripe for religiously sanctioned violence and rape. So the Swedes are caught between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.
When politically correct ideologues can actually quote these verses from the Quran, they may begin to address the problem:
Qur’an (33:50) – “O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those (slaves) whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee”
Qur’an (8:69) – “But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good”
But just as Obama can’t talk sensibly about jihad warfare in Islam, neither can the European socialists.
Now, next door to Sweden, Norway recently expelled almost a thousand Muslim immigrants for serious crimes, and behold! The violent crime rate dropped by 30% in Norway. Amazing but true.
Europe still suffers from a paralyzing multiculturalist hangover. It is awash in the mind-fog of PC, although here and there signs of sanity are gradually showing up like wildflowers after winter. The biggest trouble is that today’s political class rose to power on the multicultural reign of intimidation. “Racist” scapegoats were viciously smeared by politicians, the media, and the schools, enforced by eager volunteers – just like the PC commissars you and I have met in our own lives, the willing enforcers of politically correct lies.
