In 1975, the Swedish Riksdag (Parliament) voted to make Sweden a more multicultural and more multiethnic nation and opened its doors wide to non-European immigrants. A large portion of the new immigrants were Muslims.
Sweden has had a long-standing reputation for liberal social policies and generous government healthcare and welfare programs. Beginning with their election victory in 1932, during the Great Depression, the Social Democrats increased their power by infiltrating and then dominating the media, the educational establishment, and the most influential cultural spheres of influence. The resulting powerful combination of left-liberal influences was also able to wear down conservative influences in the national Swedish Lutheran Church and the smaller and more conservative evangelical dominations.
The Social Democrats were able to dominate Sweden for 44 years, until 1976, and have held power for the majority of elections since then. In 1979, Sweden was the first country to prohibit parents from spanking their children and is presently rated the most gender-equal country in the world. In 1995, Sweden became a member of the European Union (EU). Besides the EU’s advocacy of cheap non-European labor to bolster its Big-Government-Big-Business economic ideology, it has deliberately used immigration to undermine national cultures and strengthen new loyalties to the EU and its policies.
In 1975, there were 421 sexual assault cases in Sweden, which until then had one of the lowest crime and sexual assault rates in the world. If the reader will permit me an historical aside, even the pagan Viking raiders, circa 790 to 1066, with their reputation for pillaging and destruction, possessed a strongly held informal code of conduct that for the strong to take advantage of the weak or defenseless was dishonorable. In 2014, however, there were 6,620 sexual assaults reported to the police in Sweden, an increase of more than 1,400 percent since 1975. The Swedish media does not report the race or ethnic group of crime suspects, but police reports indicate that 78 percent were “foreigners.” This is undoubtedly an understatement, since second generation immigrants are counted as Swedes. Judging from Norwegian data, well over 90 percent of the rape perpetrators are Muslim, although the Muslim population of Sweden is presently less than 5 percent.
In the 1970’s, gang rapes in Sweden were almost unknown, but there now seems to be an epidemic of them in Sweden, the U.K., and Germany. The Swedish government actually did a study of gang rapes from 1995 to 2006 and found the increase alarming. It was so alarming, however, that it became politically incorrect to release or continue the study.
So the gang rapes continue and tend to get little attention in the press. Besides the suffocating environment of political correctness, especially on ethnic issues in Sweden, it is now against the law to criticize either immigration or Islam. A prominent leader of the conservative and immigration restrictionist Sweden Democrat Party has been charged with a hate crime for stating simple statistics regarding Muslim crimes in Sweden. Thus the epidemic of rapes and gang rapes continues to leave many thousands of young Swedish women and even children psychologically and physically marred each year. There have been several deaths, mental breakdowns, and suicides of gang rape victims in Sweden and the U.K. In many cases, there has been physical damage resulting in permanent disabilities and inability to have children. Many are too cruel and gruesome to report here. One thing that is important to remember is that many male Muslim immigrants are led to believe that their presence in Europe has an ultimate Jihadic purpose, which entitles them to rape non-Muslim women and girls. This often leads to a gang rape mentality for young males out to demonstrate their Muslim identity, their support for Jihad, their own macho masculinity, and the Supremacy of Islam.
One American journalist has raised the question of why more European journalists do not express more moral outrage at this epidemic of rapes and gang rapes. Part of the problem is the heavy atmosphere of political correctness that treats non-European immigration as an especially sacred cow. A huge part of the problem, however, is the number of Western European countries that have hate speech laws against “Islamophobia,” effectively any criticism of Islam, opposition to Muslim immigration, or releasing statistics showing immigrants in an unfavorable light. For example, the leader of the Front National Party in France, Marine Le Pen, has been charged with the crime of Islamophobia, which is a Muslim Brotherhood propaganda invention. Besides France, other immigration restriction parties in Europe are polling better than 25 percent—the U.K., Denmark, Austria, and Sweden! The incumbent governments are using Islamophobia and hate speech laws in attempting to silence them.
The powerful 57-nation member Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) within the United Nations (UN) has been lobbying Western UN members to make Islamophobia (essentially any criticism of Islam) a punishable hate crime. Obviously, they have succeeded pretty well in Western Europe. In late 2011, less than a year before the Benghazi incident, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was consulting by direction of President Obama with OIC leadership to make Islamophobia a punishable hate crime in the U.S. To get such a federal law passed in the United States, however, would probably require some alarming incident that could be linked to alleged Islamophobia.
If President Obama could succeed in making Islamophobia a punishable hate crime, as it now is in several Muslim besieged countries in Europe, he will be able to silence the great bulk of resistance to escalated Hijra and facilitate future Islamic dominance in the United States. Here is a troubling quote from his 2006 book, The Audacity of Hope, page 261:
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
