What’s Really Going on in Sweden? February 23, 2017Posted by geoff in News.
I personally am not sure, though the Daily Mail’s article today seems pretty awful. But here are some factoids. First, have a look the graph of this funky statistic (“exposure to sex offenses”), shamelessly stolen from nice Swedish peoples.
Something is clearly afoot in recent years – something that can only be explained by increasing disrespect of women. But as to Sweden being the “Rape Capital of the World” due to recent immigration, I’m not seeing it (chart stolen again from those gullible Swedes):
Rape has been pretty flat since 2011, when the Syrian diaspora started. The “Rape Capital of the World” designation actually came from much earlier data, comparing rates in 2012. Sweden’s rate of rape has increased dramatically (by 15X) from 1975, when it was a homogeneous population, to 2012, after almost 40 years of deliberately promoting immigration from the Middle East. But the new wave of immigration can’t be blamed for that rise.
I’ll close with my final theft from the Swedes: the murder/manslaughter stats:
Seems like a bad trend since 2012, but it’s a little early to panic over it.
The Swedes have a reputation for covering up immigrant crime to protect them, and it’s certainly clear that immigrant-related crime is a larger problem than acknowledged by the Swedish government or press. However, if these stats haven’t been grossly manipulated, it doesn’t seem like Sweden is a poster child for huge immigrant-related crime.
