Will last Friday´s terror attack in Stockholm change Swedish attitudes toward Islam? Not likely. Pretty much all of Europe has spent the last few decades undergoing (steady) Islamization, but the invasion has progressed so much further in Sweden than in almost every other country on the continent – and has occasioned so much less frank reportage, commentary, and criticism, that brave souls in Sweden´s Scandinavian neighbors, Denmark and Norway – routinely make disparaging reference to “Swedish conditions.” What this term refers to is not only the drastic social and economic changes currently underway in the country that once proudly called
Comments: Criticize Islam or mass Islamic immigration = get lynched by the Swedish Enemedia - that´s the Swedish condition.
There is an old African money trap. It is merely a hollowed gourd, in which the monkey hunters place a few bits of cereal and nuts. The hole is just big enough for a monkey to insert his open hand, but once he grabs the goodies, he makes a tight fist and the hand will not go back through the hole as a fist. But, no matter how terrified the money is as the hunters come out to club him, he will not release the goodies. That´s all he has to do to escape his doom.
The trouble with nations that embrace these Islamic 12th century cretins is, the nation simply will not let go of them. And thus they are trapped. And their doom is imminent. It´s just a sad case of self destructive stupidity.
I´ve lived in southwest Sweden for 20 years, and articles like this focus on certain areas where conditions are indeed that bad, but when you look at the big picture, it´s more nuanced and complex. Outside the big 3 cities--Stockholm, Göteborg and Mälmö--integration is more prevalent. It is far from perfect, but the entire country hasn´t gone to hell. Even in the Big 3, crime and other problems are limited to a few areas, much like US cities. I work with immigrants daily as a job coach, and in our county I can and do go everywhere in all neighbourhoods. There are no "no-go zones". But we let in 185K+ people in 2015, and it´s going to take years before the social infrastructure can catch up. It was just too many at once, and everyone here, including the government, knows it.
Saturday morning I chanced on a radio interview while flipping through stations. It was between an American journalist and a Swedish journalist. The American asked if the attack had anything to do with Sweden´s "immigrants" and the Swede completely denied that there was any connection at all.
That sort of intentional blindness is destroying Europe and, to some extent, the US.
#2, I am sorry but the FACT that Rinkeby had no takers for a GOVERNMENT contract makes a mockery of your contention that there are ´no no-go zones´.
And frankly, who cares if integration outside of the 3 big cities is more prevalent? We are talking about an 80/20 split, and that 20 in the Country are gonna wear burkas and pray 5 times a day as soon as that 80 tells them to.
My neighbor is from Sweden and her parents come frequently for visits. They are here right now. Both she and her parents absolutely love Obama. Even a brief conversation with them quickly reveals why Sweden is in for a lot more trouble.
The Swedes have never truly clearly lost to anyone except Russia and that was 300 years ago. I think it hasn´t ever really occurred to them to worry about losing. And they don´t know that they aren´t having the same worries as everyone else. It just isn´t there in their heads.
Much of Europe is suffering cognitive dissonance regarding "immigration". On the one hand, they need to offer a hand out and up to these oppressed people. They are just like everyone else.
On the other hand, there are the occasional bombings, truck crashings and beheadings...and the need is for more "social infrastructure." All the while, the newcomers press the generally agnostic hosts for less and less public expression of "threatening" Christianity, and more recognition of their Sharia culture and its foibles. In effect, demanding the hosts to deny their own culture and history.
Funny thing - where the Moslems were turned back 500 years ago, Poland, Hungary, Austria and the Balkans, you find public resistance to this lunacy, and governments defending their sovereignty.
Reuters reported Tuesday that “Pope Francis hopes to mend ties with Muslims on his trip to Egypt on Friday but faces criticism from church conservatives for meeting Islamic religious leaders after a spate of deadly attacks against Christians.” He has to mend ties? After Palm Sunday jihad massacres at two churches in Egypt, shouldn’t it be Egyptian Muslims who are reaching out to him to mend ties? “A main reason for the trip,” Reuters explains, “is to try to strengthen relations with the 1,000-year-old Azhar center that were cut by the Muslim side in 2011 over what it said were repeated insults
The Atlantic’s May cover features Alec Baldwin covered in orange makeup holding up a Trump wig. The cover asks, “Can Satire Save the Republic?” What is satire saving the Republic from? Republicans. While making America safe for Socialism. After Bush won, Democrats fought back by doubling down on the ridicule. Before long they were getting their news from Jon Stewart’s smirk. Stewart spawned a whole range of imitators. Today you can find numberless clones of the Daily Show across cable and even on CBS and, soon, on NBC. The left is devoutly convinced that this snickering can save America. That it’s better than
Today is the scheduled date for the French election. Darned if I or anyone can say how it will turn out, though I think our President is right -- the attack on three policemen on the Champs-Élysées would certainly seem to boost the chances of Marine le Pen. Of course, I could be wrong, and Barack Obama’s apparent favorite Emmanuel Macron, who says terrorism will “be a fact of daily life” that his countrymen will just have to get used to, will appeal to enough suicidal Frenchmen to carry the day. March for Science On Saturday, crowds at the laughably titled global
Democrats inherit the foreign policy crises of a thousand Republican presidential fathers, but the foreign policy crises inherited by incoming Republicans in the White House are always orphans. Or at least that’s how the media likes to spin it. If you believe your random mainstream media outlet of choice, North Korea and Syria were crises freshly spawned by this administration with no prior history. But these ticking time bombs are the direct result of the two terrible terms of his predecessor. The Nobel Peace Prize winner’s years in the White House were the most dysfunctional, schizophrenic and senseless eight years of our national
RUSH: Steve in Springfield, Massachusetts. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello, sir. CALLER: Oh, Rush, wow. This is a tremendous honor. Spare me if I sound a little nervous. I used to listen to you on THE in Leicester in the late eighties. Anyway — RUSH: That makes you a lifer. I mean, if you’ve been around since the late eighties, you’ve been around since the beginning. CALLER: Yeah. But I’ll tell you, you know, two things that I heard on your show really reshaped my analysis of liberalism. One of them, when you said it was
Rupert Murdoch should sue his sons. James and Lachlan seem intent on destroying Fox News or at least reforming it drastically, which in the final analysis comes to the same thing. The sons think they´re the new hip thing, but they´re the opposite. They´re terminally square. And not just because Fox was the only big-time conservative game in town and therefore could lap CNN and MSNBC, as the network has done for years, but because liberalism isn´t nearly as cool as the boys think it is. It´s actually stodgy and vastly more old-fashioned than conservatism and certainly libertarianism. (I know that´s hard to
The Associated Press edited the words of a Muslim man who allegedly killed three white people in downtown Fresno Tuesday afternoon and shouted “Allahu Akbar!” The suspect, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, holds fervent anti-Trump beliefs according to his social media profile, and he told police afterward that he hates white people. (RELATED: Muslim Shooter Kills Three Whites In Fresno) Rather than reporting the gunman’s literal words, however, the AP reported the gunman as saying “God is great.” On Twitter, the AP’s report gave no indication that the suspect’s words were said in Arabic. The AP took flack on Twitter for the edits,
If Animal House were to be rebooted today, Bluto – who would probably be updated into a differently–abled trans being of heft – might ask, “See if you can guess what am I now?” before expelling a whole mass of pus-like root vegetable on the WASPrivileged villains and announcing, “I’m a university – get it?” At least popping a zit gets rid of the infection and promotes healing. But today, the higher education racket festers on the rear end of our culture, a painful, useless carbuncle of intellectual fraud, moral bankruptcy, and pernicious liberal fascism that impoverishes the young while it
RUSH: I got another piece today, an introspective piece about the Democrats, a New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters, there is no leadership in the Democrat Party whatsoever. It is just a tremendous indictment of where the Democrat Party is. Now, you hear me say that, and I know what you’re saying, “What do you mean, the Democrat Party’s in trouble, Rush? Have you looked at the media?” And you see the stories that are out there, and it proves my point that is the media that is running the progressive movement. The Democrat Party is just an arm of
They have the House, they have the Senate, they have the presidency -- and nothing´s happening. Nothing, that is, that Donald Trump doesn´t do by himself (i. e. reversing Obama´s executive orders and cutting regulations in general, reviving American global power, etc.). The Republicans in the legislature are a disgrace. They can´t get it together to compromise on anything and move forward -- no tax reform, no healthcare, no nothing. They are overwhelmed by a combination of overweening ego and rigid ideology -- a lethal cocktail. What their behavior is doing is creating an inevitable situation where they lose control of
My Sunday New York Post column today takes a look at how the traditional (well, since FDR, in American political usage) first hundred days are going: As the end of Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office approaches, now’s a good a time to cut through the fog of misinformation, disinformation, media propaganda, ideological bias and outright hostility that has greeted his arrival in Washington and take a clear-eyed look at how he’s really doing. Answer: much better than you think. The rumor mills have been working overtime in Washington this weekend -- and I guess we´ll find later today
My focus this week is on the “wiretapping” (electronic interception of communications, if you insist) of President Trump and his associates during the campaign. It seems to me this story is rapidly unfolding -- if only mostly in overseas press and online -- and promises to be far more explosive than the Watergate story, an account that says frightening things about our intelligence agencies and those of some of our allies, most particularly Great Britain. It has become increasingly clear to me that there was widespread wiretapping of President Trump and his associates and that the underlying justification was pretextual
President Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography of the president. The biography by David Garrow, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. Garrow wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post. WATCH: (Video) In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn. “Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,
It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the
The “Antifa” far left Communist group has managed to get an entire parade and carnival canceled in Portland because the Multnomah County Republicans were going to be in the parade. (Photo) The communists threatened to riot, loot, assault people at the parade. The festival people decided to cancel the entire weekend of activities, which was going to be this weekend due to the threats of violence by the leftist group. The Antifa group promised to rush the parade and drag away the Republicans. “We will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag
A vicious brawl, involving more than 50 teenage boys and girls, erupted at a Florida mall. The disturbing video of the fight was shared on social media, featuring a large group of teens pummeling each other outside a Rue 21 clothing store inside Orange Park Mall. The Clay County Sheriff´s Office said the incident happened Saturday. In the footage, several people are seen punching a girl on a couch. Behind them another group is seen fighting as a woman appears to try and calm things down. A third and fourth group of teens are also seen fighting in the background.
A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. [SNIP] To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.” That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future
Chelsea Clinton urged the importance of fighting hunger as she was honored at a New York charity gala on Tuesday night. The former First Daughter, who is a Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, was presented with the City Harvest Award for Commitment for her support of the organization through volunteering with the Clinton Foundation´s Day of Action program. She wore a colorful patterned dress, black cardigan and nude heels to the event on Tuesday, which was also attended by Chrissy Teigen, actress Bridget Moynahan, Real Housewives Of New York star Bethenny Frankel and domestic goddess Martha Stewart.
Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into
The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said
Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch. The filthy fashion statement isn´t actually new -- the jeans have been for sale at Nordstrom as well as at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for quite some time.
In the past week, vandals have repeatedly defaced property at the prestigious University of Texas-Austin, spray-painting a hammer and sickle symbol and words like “rapist,” “racist” and “kill frat boys” on at least four fraternity houses. Last Friday, the vandals published an anonymous manifesto on It’s Going Down, a website that describes itself as “a media platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist, and autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements.” In it, the vandals urge students to join them in terrorizing fraternities. The self-professed “Vandals of UT” say they are responding to no specific incident but “the everyday crisis that is rape culture,
I HAVE been a practising Christian all my life and a deacon and Bible teacher for many years. My faith is a source of strength and comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful and difficult. It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention´s leaders, quoting a few carefully selected Bible verses and claiming that Eve was created second to Adam and was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be "subservient" to byline corrected by staff
