Right on cue! Immigrant riots break out in Sweden

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 22, 2017

Although such crime and riots are not new to us, apparently a very large number of liberals (and some Republicans too!) did not know that Sweden was so close to the edge.


Stockholm immigrant neighborhood set ablaze. Trump is right!

But actually of greater interest than the fact that this latest violence seemed to break out on cue after Donald Trump commented Saturday on the trouble Sweden was having with Muslim migrants, is the fact that CNN this morning actually reported on it!

Here is CNN:

Stockholm, Sweden (CNN)Riots broke out in a predominantly immigrant neighborhood of Stockholm Monday night, as residents clashed with police officers and set vehicles on fire, Swedish police say.

Officers were forced to call in reinforcements when a crowd began to gather in the suburb of Rinkeby during the arrest of a suspect, according to a statement from Stockholm police.

Stockholm regional police chief Ulf Johansson said the clashes may have been a result of their “increased pressure on criminals in the area.”

The clashes come days after US President Donald Trump suggested that immigrants in Sweden were to blame for an increase in crime across the country.

In recent years, Sweden has taken in more refugees per capita than any other European country, which has fueled tensions and caused a rise in anti-immigrant sentiment.


In 2013, large scale riots flared for a week in the Swedish capital, with gangs setting fire to schools and a police station.

In 2015, more than 160,000 people — many from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan — arrived in Sweden seeking asylum.
The country granted asylum to 101,025 refugees — about 1% of the total population — from 2012 to 2015.

CNN, however, can’t let go of two things.  One, there is a brief mention of the high unemployment rate of the migrants. No kidding! So how on earth does the Swedish government think they are going to afford tens of thousands of restless young Middle Eastern men? (Call it Sweden’s suicide wish!)

These migrants are also dumb or they would be reading the news, have restrained themselves for a few weeks, and not have given Trump a victory.

And, CNN could not resist quoting some Swedes laughing at Donald Trump who deny that anything is amiss even in the face of overwhelming evidence that they have a problem.

  1. Germany is having its carnival today, and I will be very surprised if we don’t see rioting or something worse in the news tomorrow. Bottom line is that the Islamic invaders just can’t behave themselves in civilized countries, and they should never have been unleashed on the population in the first place.

    The humanitarian superpower are too occupied condemning Mr Trump´s OUTRAGEOUS lies to bother with jihadi pranks.


  3. Goal of “Refugee” Invasion is Civil War in Europe and a new World War

    “What will happen, is that they have already dragged Europe into a conflict roughly just as brutal as what WWI and WWII were like. You were dragged into the projects known as WWI and WWII by the same unspeakable global world power. This can only lead to civil war. BUT THAT IS THE GOAL. This is what it wants! This global power doesn’t want anything more than … a never-ending, brutal 30 Years War. Just like that 30 Years War was also the work of this global power. This is exactly what it wants. For a permanent civil war stretching for decades to develop in Europe”.


  4. The Chinese have been engaging in genocide of the Tibetan People by flooding Chinese in on them just as Europe is being genocided. Even the Dalai Lama has spoken out …….

    CNN, like where many others are headed, is already in the trash. All that’s left is to tie the bag and set it by the road…
    I love it when Trump speaks the truth, they balk, and lo – it becomes known fact…bwahahahahaha
