Sweden stands as the ideal of socialist Europe; the happy, perfectly executed ideal of the European Left. It gives the lie to Right complaints of human nature and reality and really, cannot be answered. So why has Stockholm been burning for five consecutive nights without attention from the newsfolk?
Some 15% of Swedes are immigrants; most Moslems of African heritage. They receive the same benefits Swedish Nordics feel entitled to; that is a lot. Few Swedes earn a lot;, too much is taken to hand out as benefits to permit many big earners. Generally, few have complained; most Swedes live pleasantly. And work reasonably hard, too.
But the huge, quite nice enclaves within which the Moslem immigrants live have kept on growing and are now home to huge numbers of unemployed, uneducated and clearly resentful (they’ve been smashing and burning for five nights now) Moslems who from all evidence, don’t want to be Swedes but somehow think they’re entitled to more than they’ve been receiving.
Allegedly, the rioting concerns a berserk man waving a machete who was shot dead by the cops. How dare they? Maybe they should have just stuck their necks out for him? Didn’t help a Brit soldier recently; he lost his head to a couple of Moslems brimming with entitlement in London. In reaction to that, the Brits are now arresting Twitter users for anti-Islamic tweets. If this seems confusing as to who are the good guys and whom the bad, yeah, right. I’m confused too.
The current Brit government seems more confused than any; it needn’t look far for wise guidance but seems unaware of that; maybe it has forgotten its own history. Sir Winston Churchill explained Islam from an English viewpoint a while back and that is still available. Very simple and clear, too. The Swedes seem to be just now learning.
See, Islam doesn’t assimilate. It conquers; you assimilate. On its terms. And that’s all she wrote. The big joker here seems to me to be the wonderful Swedish socialist perfection under attack from its primary clients. See, either the Swedish Perfection isn’t or the Moslems aren’t what the Left has cracked them up to be. One or the other is a false god.
You may decide for yourself, which is false. Of course, both may be, nothing here precludes that outcome.
Maybe we should petition the U.N. for a ‘Demolish Clay Feet” week designation…well, unless it were to upset too many citizens…
