RT (Russia Today) is an arm of the Russian government, so we must assume that it serves the interests of the Russian state. With that caveat, however, it should be noted that RT produces some of the most interesting and comprehensive news coverage that can be found on the web.
Its news reports are not occluded by the thick blanket of politically correct smog that shrouds virtually every Western media outlet. The following report dares to address the British “grooming and pimping” scandal in terms of religion and — gasp! — race. And, surprisingly enough, a couple of British journalists are willing to discuss the issue in the same terms. RT & GoV.
Swedish riots could represent Europe’s future
En stor del af den ikkenordiske rapportering om opstanden i Sverige er præget af et Sverigesbillede der forsvandt da Olof Palme blev skudt, eller i al fald gjorde det i 1992 da masseindvandringen kom op i femte gear. Enkelte røster har hele tiden været helt helt opdaterede som Bruce Bawer og Soeren Kern, men nu dukker der hele to bekymrede og kritiske artikler op i venstreorienterede Economist – Is the integration of immigrants failing? og Sweden’s riots A blazing surprise, – så er der noget i gære. Sveriges regering bevarer the stiff upper lip, regeringspartiet fyrer et medlem for at sige noget andet mens det alt mere ligner end luftkaptajn der vil nødlande et fly, mens han fortæller passagererne at der ingen fare er og alt er helt normalt. Washington Times skriver:
Thanks to government policies which offer new immigrants free housing and social welfare when they arrive, Sweden has long been one of the world’s most popular destination for asylum seekers. Sweden itself is a country of emigrants. In the southern region there is even an emigrant museum which is one of the best facilities in the world for genealogy research. Combined with its progressive philosophy Sweden has long had open-door immigration policies which, until recently, have been a source of national pride.
The unrest happening today in Sweden is similar to what occurred in the past in London and Paris, though most observers say it is to a lesser degree. Much of Sweden’s problem is the result of ignoring immigration policies that encourage the establishment of parallel societies within the country. With such open policies, it is understandable that Sweden would have a high density of immigration from a multitude of nations
Some of the Islamic no-go zones now function within their individual areas by instituting Sharia law as their source of legal authority. Consequently these sections have become virtual islands of Islam within Sweden. These microstates are often self-governing to the extent that local authorities either cannot, will not or are not allowed to provide basic benefits such as police and fire protection or ambulance services. As immigrant populations gain strength, they are becoming increasingly emboldened by asserting special rights and privileges throughout Sweden.
With such large numbers of immigrants taking advantage of the Swedish buffet of benefits, many Swedes are beginning to have second-thoughts about the sustainability of such an influx of outsiders and the multiculturalism the country has exhibited in the past. Regardless of the Swedish desire to offer acceptance to immigrant societies, the dynamics of the proposition simply cannot support the demands.
Sadly, the violence in Stockholm may be an indication that the point of no return has been reached. Sweden’s liberal attitudes in the past may have finally caught up with them. The tragic flaw in their thinking is that they are unable to provide a welfare state for people who make no contributions to Swedish society and ultimately become a drain on the economy of the entire country. Does any of this sound familiar? The rest of Europe should take notice, but the United States must pay attention as well because Sweden represents an ominous omen for the future.
