The Donald Got it Right on Sweden
Two leading Swedish politicians say Trump was right about their country's problem with refugee-fueled crime


Diversity update

Jeremy, it seems to me that Trump intentionally shoots off his mouth in a way that invites fact checking from Right and Left, which brings out the lies and omissions of the press. I think, after seeing a few examples like this, that we are looking at the most sophisticated power player to sit in the Oval Office. His boisterous invitations of criticism end up being the spark that lights a search for what is really going on behind the wall of media silence. I would love to play Empires in Arms with this guy!

“Per Jimmie Akesson and Mattias Karlsson, two members of parliament from the right-wing Sweden Democrats, backed Trump's characterization of Sweden as a country that is plagued by migrant-fueled crime. Akesson and Karlsson co-wrote an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday. 'Mr Trump did not exaggerate Sweden's current problems,' Akesson and Karlsson wrote. 'If anything, he understated them.'”

“'Riots and social unrest have become a part of everyday life,' Akesson and Karlsson wrote. 'Police officers, firefighters and ambulance personnel are regularly attacked. Serious riots in 2013, involving many suburbs with large immigrant populations, lasted for almost a week.' 'Gang violence is booming.' 'Despite very strict firearms laws, gun violence is five times as common in Sweden, in total, as in the capital cities of our three Nordic neighbors combined.' The two politicians also wrote in their op-ed that the Jews of Sweden who had once lived in the city of Malmo have fled because of the large immigrant population there. 'Anti-Semitism has risen,' they wrote. 'Jews in Malmo are threatened, harassed and assaulted in the streets.' 'Many have left the city, becoming internal refugees in their country of birth.' 'For the sake of the American people, with whom we share so many strong historical and cultural ties, we can only hope that the leaders in Washington won't make the same mistakes that our socialist and liberal politicians did,' they wrote.”

"...Jews of Sweden who had once lived in the city of Malmo have fled because of the large immigrant population there. 'Anti-Semitism has risen,' they wrote. 'Jews in Malmo are threatened, harassed and assaulted in the streets..."

It just came to me...we need more Muslims. We can use them to run off the Jews then we'll deport the Muslims.
