The media is going crazy because during his Saturday Rally in Friday, President Trump said “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden … Sweden … who would believe this? Sweden, they took in large numbers, they are having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening Brussels, you look at what’s happening all over the world.” By “last night ” Trump was talking about an interview segment that appeared on Friday’s Tucker Carlson Show which covered the increase in sexual assaults in Sweden because of the large wave of Muslim refugees into the country.
Carlson’s interview was with Ami Horowitz who directed a documentary about Sweden’s migrant-related increase in violent crime.
The MSM as expected is casting darkness upon Trump’s statement. They are looking for a non-existent terrorist attack and ripping the president because they can’t find one. But the Tucker Carlson segment wasn’t talking about one major terror attack, it was talking about Sweden’s increase in violent crime, particularly rapes. In fact, Sweden has become the rape capital of Europe.
The Gatestone Institute’s Ingrid Carlqvist reports that forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent rapes are up by almost 1,500%. In 1975, 421 rapes were reported to the police; in 2014, it was 6,620. That is an increase of 1,472%. Ms. Carlqvist suggests the increase of rapes is attributable to the mass influx of immigrants, coming mainly from Muslim countries such as Iraq, Syria and Somalia. Over the past 10-15 years, immigrants to Sweden have arrived mainly from Muslim countries such as Iraq, Syria and Somalia. It can’t be totally confirmed that it was these Muslim immigrants because the very P.C. Swedish law forbids registration based on people’s ancestry or religion however, the growth rapes have coincided with the growth of Muslim immigrants.
Carlqvist created a video about the immigrant/rapist problem which was initially banned by Facebook. The video is an updated version of a research paper published by Gatestone in February of 2015 which, based on quantitative research, speculated the increase in rapes was attributable to the arrival of large blocks of refugees from Islamist countries. While Sweden itself doesn’t allow the collection of ethic information from criminals, Ingrid Carlqvist uses other related data in an attempt to link the two. The video is scholarly, not sensationalist in tone.
