If the Mozilla fiasco made you think that supporting marriage in America was risky, try opposing immigration in Sweden. You may remember the story involving The Journal News in New York, which in 2012 published the names and addresses of two counties’ handgun-permit holders. Now a Swedish newspaper has done the same with some of its anti-immigration citizens. But whereas The Journal News received harsh criticism for its actions, in Sweden it’s the victims being persecuted. Reports journalist Pamela Geller:
One of Sweden’s biggest newspapers, Expressen, used criminal hackers to break into Disqus and get the email addresses and identities of commenters online, and to reveal the persons behind the nicknames or anonymous user IDs. The newspaper sent a reporter and a cameraman to one person’s home and asked them about things they had written on different websites. Expressen published the names and photos of some people, which led to at least one person losing his job.
It’s not surprising that Swedish immigration is controversial. Once a homogenous land with one of the world’s lowest crime rates, waves of Muslim immigration are now transforming Sweden into, according to one United Nations report, what will soon be a Third World country. Frontpage Mag’s Daniel Greenfield reports on this sea change, writing:
Sweden’s population grew from 9 million to 9.5 million in the years 2004-2012, mainly due to immigration from “countries like Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia”. 16 percent of all newborns have mothers born in non-Western countries. Employment rate among immigrants: 54 percent.
Sweden now has the second highest number of rapes in the world, after South Africa, which at 53.2 per 100,000 is six times higher than the United States. Statistics now suggest that 1 out of every 4 Swedish women will be raped.
Seventy-seven percent of these rapes are committed by “foreigners”; the vast majority of these are Muslim, while most of their victims are native Swedes. And these figures, say critics, are likely low-ball estimates by authorities that would prefer to whitewash the problem altogether.
