Sweden’s Government Isn’t Entirely Honest

lofven-i-radet-3

The Government of Sweden released an article in English attempting to repair the image of Sweden abroad. Let’s go through some of their statements and take a look at how they might be problematic. My sources are hyperlinked so just click the coloured words to reach them.

Claim: “Sweden had its first islamic terrorist attack not so long ago”

The Governments Facts: The only known attempt at such an attack was in 2010. No one was harmed but the attacker.

That is true. However I would like to point out that Sweden has exported more jihadists than all of America. In 2015 it was estimated 250 people had joined ISIS from America. For Sweden it was around 300.

Do keep in mind that one single ISIS-fighter can cause a lot of damage. One person alone can achieve up to 200 kills, especially if they carry out a suicide bombing, and a lot of ISIS-fighters aren’t killed in action. They get educated in the art of killing, handling explosives, generally imbued with hate towards democracy and the West, and then they bring these skills and attitudes back home to the West.

When they return, they aren’t necessarily punished by Sweden. It’s not illegal to be an ISIS member here. For a long time, if the National Security Police (SÄPO) suspected someone will be joining ISIS all they could legally do is give them a phone call and ask them for a meeting – that the person isn’t legally obliged to attend. Although in 2016 it became illegal to travel abroad with intent to commit terrorist acts, or to participate in terror-training.

And it’s shameful it had to take that long. Sweden has been aware of the jihadist problem for several years, they’ve known about people traveling abroad to rape children and kill infidels since 2014. They did nothing. Gothenburg is the city having the most issues with this, yet they didn’t assign a coordinator against violent extremism until 2015. That was the first time it happened in Sweden.

Granted, we did assign Mona Sahlin as a national coordinator against terrorism in the summer of 2014, but all she managed to accomplish in a year was a hotline for the jihadists relatives. This is lethal neglect by our authorities.

They claim it’s hard to prosecute someone for war crimes abroad. So instead of punishing returning ISIS-fighters, or stripping them of their citizenships, we’ve seen suggestions by our politicians to give them therapy, housing and internships. In October of 2016 it was revealed 140 Swedish citizens had returned after fighting for ISIS, and several municipalities are going to handle this by giving them tax-funded drivers licenses, and helping them out with jobs and housing.

So Sweden might not have had it’s own terrorist attack yet. But it certainly has exported terror to other countries. Also, it has been revealed that Swedish humanitarian aid once went to Al-Qaida allies in Syria.

Claim: “There has been a major increase in the number of rapes in Sweden.”

The Governments Facts: The number of reported rapes in Sweden has risen. But the definition of rape has broadened over time, which makes it difficult to compare the figures. It is also misleading to compare the figures with other countries, as many acts that are considered rape under Swedish law are not considered rape in many other countries.

Sex crimes have doubled since 2012 and the legal definition of rape isn’t relevant here, because the source of these figures is the Crime Councils “safety survey”. They are generally considered more reliable than reports to the police, and this also means that factors like the definition of rape widening and taking time to apply in court doesn’t matter. Asking citizens what they’ve experienced and looking at people who dared to report are different things.

And according to safety survey numbers, women’s comfortability with reporting sex crime has actually gone down. Not up. Now this is an important detail, since this is often used as the theory to explain why there’s been an increase. From 2005-2010 women DID feel more comfortable reporting, but since 2010 it’s been going down.

In order to understand the effect immigration has on crime and rape, we need data. Obtaining that data is easy in other countries, but not in Sweden. The latest official report was in 2005, for the years 1997-2001. It confirmed that immigrants were significantly overrepresented. 4 times more likely to be suspects in homicide cases and 5.5 times more likely to be suspects of rape.

Since then, Swedish politicians have made sure not to release any more statistics. The numbers are being collected by statistical agencies, but they’re not being published. Parliament even denied a motion to produce up-to-date crime statistics based on national origin.

If we look at neighbouring countries, we might find an explanation there. In 2009 Norwegian police reported that non-Western immigrants were responsible for all assault rapes in Oslo the past 3 years. We’re talking about 41 reports. In the third largest city of Stavanger 2012, 90% of rapes were by non-natives, that’s 20 convictions. Those might be small numbers but the official police report from 2011 confirms the trend.

Perpetrator representation according to age and ethnic background. The blue-ish colour represents “non-Norwegians”. As you can see below, 61,2% of rapists were Norwegians. 10,5% were from Africa, 9,2% were from the Middle East, 12,5% were Europeans, 4,6% Asians and 2,0% Americans. I’d like to point out that “Asian” doesn’t just mean Chinese and Japanese, it can refer to Pakistanis and Afhans as well. Considering that South-East Asians have the lowest registered crime it is likely not predominantly Japanese and Chinese people here.

graf1

Now, notice that “Norwegian citizen” includes people with immigrant backgrounds as well. It is not just ethnic Norwegians that are Norwegian citizens. If we break it up according to continental background then the numbers are as following.

graf2

34,9% of rapists were Norwegians. 19,7% were from Africa, 15,1% from the Middle East, 14,5% from Asia, 13,8% from Europe and 2,0% from America. Considering that immigrants make out a minority in Norway, these numbers are remarkable.

I managed to come across a police report from 2015 as well, showing that immigrants commit a disproportionate amount of rapes. 25% of reported rapes that year were by non-European immigrants. The largest immigrant population is Polish followed by Lithuanians and Swedes. That’s saying something. 82% of victims were born in Norway.

Ethnic Norwegians make up 83.7% of the population as of 2016. Looking at these stats, you can do some quick math and realize that roughly 5.37% of the population commited 25% of all reported rapes in 2015. Or if you will, Africans are 6.25 times more likely to commit rape.

This gives an indication to why the government isn’t interested in updating the report from 2005.

In Sweden, we simply do not know what percentage of sex crimes and murders last year were done by immigrants. Because the government doesn’t want us to know. And on their website they have the nerve to claim that: “We have nothing to gain from covering up statistics and facts.”

Except for your reputation and all your credability. Since you are the ones who’ve been vouching for uncontrolled mass immigration to Sweden the past decade. You’re the ones who haven’t made it mandatory to deport criminal immigrants, you think age testing is racist and you refused to do border ID-controls until 2016.

The Swedish Government says: “According to the most recent study, people from foreign backgrounds are 2.5 times more likely to be suspected of crimes than people born in Sweden to Swedish-born parents.”

Please note how they’re avoiding the numbers for murder and rape. Yeah, immigrants are 2.5 times more likely to be suspected in general terms. But if you look at specific crimes like rape and murder it’s several times higher than that.

The government insists on there not being a cover up, while at the same time refusing to update the numbers. Do you know the best way to tell that they’re dishonest?

If immigrants weren’t severly overrepresented, they’d love to release those numbers because it would put an end to all speculation. It would remove all the appeal of far-right populist parties and their rhetoric. Instead, you’re fueling far-right populism with your lack of transparency.

On the website they claim that:In a later study, researchers at Stockholm University showed that the main difference in terms of criminal activity between immigrants and others in the population was due to differences in the socioeconomic conditions in which they grew up in Sweden.”

Yet the official report from 2005 clearly says, on page 21, that the overrepresentation remains even after controlling for these factors. Claiming that poverty is the cause of rape is offensive to all women who’ve been raped by middle-class men.

The Swedish Government says: “The studies show that the majority of those suspected of crimes were born in Sweden to two Swedish-born parents. The studies also show that the vast majority of people from foreign backgrounds are not suspected of any crimes.”

Yeah, because that needs pointing out. It’s not like it’s obvious that the majority of immigrants are cool people. Still doesn’t change the fact that a minority of bad apples can cause a huge amount of damage.

Nobody is disputing the fact that Swedish people commit crimes, the issue here is how disproportionately overrepresented certain immigrant groups are. Individiuals from North Africa and the Middle East have the highest registered crime. Western Europeans, South-East Asians and Americans have the lowest registered crime.

The big question is: If we already have a rape problem with ethnic Swedes, why make it even worse through the import of more rape? The majority of immigrants don’t rape, so they wouldn’t suffer from in-depth research into this overrepresentation, and what could be done to improve screening of potential criminals.

When someone wants to talk overrepresentation, and your first instinct is to shout “swedish men rape too!”, that clearly shows you’re arguing from a sense of nervous pseudo-morality. Not a thirst for knowledge.

The Swedish Government says: “Sweden is an open society governed by a principle of public access to official documents.”

Oh, so that’s why a man was denied work at the Central Bureau of Statistics, because he once wrote debate articles about immigration, using numbers from the Central Bureau of Statistics?

Sweden is a peaceful version of North Korea. You won’t go to jail for speaking your mind here, but there are social consequences. Losing your job and friends are some of them. The award-winning journalist Tim Pool went to Sweden and noted how afraid Swedes were of the social reprecussions for speaking up about these issues. It was hard to find anyone who would appear on camera with their face and identity.

Claim: “In Sweden there are a number of ‘no-go zones’ where criminality and gangs have taken over and where the emergency services do not dare to go.”

The Governments Facts: No. In a report published in February 2016, the Swedish Police Authority identified 53 residential areas around the country that have become increasingly marred by crime, social unrest and insecurity. These places have been incorrectly labelled ‘no-go zones’. What is true, however, is that in several of these areas the police have experienced difficulties fulfilling their duties; but it is not the case that the police do not go to them or that Swedish law does not apply there.

As I explained in a previous post, the only reason they don’t call it “no go zones” is because the police will drive in anyway. And get showered with rocks and potentially riots.

With “no go zones” you’re not trying to say that some places are impossible to visit for everyone at all times. It’s enough that there’s neighborhoods under such high control by criminals that ambulances and firetrucks can’t enter without police escort. The ambulance union demanded riot gear to be able to do their job, for christ sake.

In Seved the post office refuses to hand out packages due to safety reasons. In Tensta they haven’t had a meter maid for 8 months, because they’re afraid to go there. The same thing with journalists visiting Bäckby, Husby, Rinkeby, etc, they get attacked for holding up cameras.

The point isn’t that these neighborhoods are impossible to enter. The point is that non-locals percieved as “intruders” get attacked, and these areas are highly problematic to the point where you start wondering who’s in charge: the cops or the criminals?

Claim: “The high level of immigration means that the system in Sweden is on the verge of collapse.”

The Governments Facts: No. The Swedish economy is strong. Despite the high costs of immigration, Sweden recorded a public finance surplus in 2015, and the forecasts indicate that the surplus is set to grow until 2020.

If the Swedish economy is so strong, why is the government forced to raise taxes AND make huge loans in order to afford immigration? As well as cuts to welfare?

They decreased money for health insurance, which affected handicapped people. A blind 2-year old in a wheelchair who depends on medicine for survival and needs attendance 24/7 was denied assistance. How does this rhyme well with a strong economy?

The government made assisted living for senior citizens more expensive, and even though they promised to raise pensions the poorest of the elderly got even less. In Sollefteå women are being forced to give birth in their cars, since the local maternity ward was shut down due to savings. How does this rhyme with a strong economy?

Every fourth death in Lex Maria reports was due to lack of room and high workload. A patient died because they had to wait at the emergency for two days. An infant died because she was sent home too early. How are you gonna tell me that this isn’t a collapse? It might not be a total collapse where the hospital has been set on fire and burnt to the ground, but it’s certainly a collapse from an acceptable living standard.

The state health department came out and said that the large number of refugees are putting such a strain on the public welfare that hospitals, dental care and the psych ward can’t operate properly.

So the governments reply makes no sense. It’s misleading. It only looks at BNP, it doesn’t say anything about the access to housing, welfare and hospital care. Waiting times in Swedish hospitals are amongst the worst in Europe. We’re on the level of Serbia.

If Sweden’s economy is going so great, why aren’t they looking after their own citizens?

Claim: “Muslims will soon be in the majority in Sweden.”

The Governments Facts: No. It is estimated that there are a few hundred thousand people in Sweden whose roots are in predominantly Muslim countries. But this figure says nothing about how many are religious or not. The Muslim faith communities have approximately 140 000 members. This is about 1.5 per cent of Sweden’s population.

In 2010 there were 430’000 people in Sweden with a muslim background, 110’000 were members in an Islamic congregation. These numbers are from 2010. It is likely to assume they’ve gone up since then, since immigration from muslim countries has as well. I’m not making an indication that muslims will soon be a majority, I’m just stating the facts.

The Swedish Government: “Sweden needs immigration to compensate for the decline in numbers of babies being born here.”

What the? What did I just read?

Let me get this straight. Swedish people are declining in numbers, and therefore we need immigrants from muslim countries. But muslims aren’t gonna be the majority here in Sweden, because Swedish people are becoming fewer and fewer. And therefore we need more and more immigrants. But this doesn’t mean that they’re gonna be the majority eventually! Yeah, that TOTALLY adds up.

The government claims that they need immigration in order to keep the economy going, and at the same time they claim they have nothing to gain from covering up negative aspects of the migration policy. To me, this says it all.

It’s also worth mentioning that they’re blatantly wrong. Without immigration Sweden lies on a stable level of 2,01 in cohortfertility, or in layman terms: About 2 children per woman. The population isn’t increasing by much, but it’s also not decreasing. More people are born than there are dying. Also, an aging population might lead to more people having to support more people, but immigration also means that more people have to support more people, because even immigrants grow old eventually.

I do not believe that Sweden’s immigration policy is about being humanitarian. If it was, Sweden wouldn’t have decreased humanitarian aid to millions of people so they can import a couple thousand refugees into Sweden. Because that’s what happened.

In 2015, 8 billion SEK was taken out and spent on asylum immigration instead, the majority of those refugees being males. The red cross food package can last a family in a refugee camp for a whole month, and it costs 385 SEK. However, every new refugee in sweden costs 499 SEK per day. I think you can imagine the humanitarian disaster here. Yet, when interviewed by SVT, the humanitarian aid minister explains that she finds this “morally justifiable”.

In 2016 the government also cut down on humanitarian aid for various health organisations that combat aids, tuberculosis and malaria. These organisations were already promised 300 million, but when that money suddenly disappeared 159 organisations chose to protest. According to calculations by the Global fund, the result of this suspended funding is 20’000 more deaths and almost one million people becoming infected with HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. Once again, this was the decision of our feminist government.

The majority of refugees are left behind in the conflict area. Immigration per say really only helps about 1% of refugees, the remaining 99% need food, water and safety until the conflict resides. So that the government is working hard to prioritize the import of people into Sweden says they’re prioritizing citizen growth, not to help as many as possible.

Sweden’s immigration policy isn’t about humanitarianism. It’s about the economy.

Every country is it’s own corporation, where the citizens are employees, and every corporation seeks continual growth and eternally growing profit. Less employees, less money. Certain countries do have falling birthrates, so the world bank and the UN have suggested “replacement migration” as a solution. A decrease in population is a decrease in economic growth.

What this is, put simply, is that it’s much easier to replace the population than it is to replace the economic system. As usual, it’s all about the money. And that’s how we need to start viewing what’s happening in the world.

If you have read this far, I thank you for your patience.

Sincerely,

Migrants raped woman in wheelchair – Swedes have had enough

the-filipino-times_two-sharjah-residents-force-wives-into-prostitution

On the 6th of October the police sent extra units to Gotland in order to calm down furious Swedes, after a woman in a wheelchair was gangraped by 5 asylum seekers. The woman reportedly “broke down” after the horrible ordeal.

On the 5th of October cirka 100 people demonstrated in support of the woman. According to one of the demonstrators all of Gotland is currently in shock and many people are crying.

In another seperate incident earler that day, an activist from the national-socialist Nordic Resistance Movement went to the address where the woman was reportedly gangraped, and confronted 3 immigrant males who have been pointed out as suspects. In this videoclip they admit that they’ve been at the police station, but that they were released. Eventually the man lost his temper and shouted: “You are fucking scum! Leave this fucking country you filthy animals!”

Since that day the situation has supposedly escalated, and now special units are being sent there to deal with the locals. So the establishment are spending more resources keeping angry swedes in check, than they do locking away rape suspects from the rest of society.

The 5 men were detained at first but were released on Wednesday. According to the prosecutor the allegations don’t stick since the woman didn’t fight back enough. But of course she didn’t, because she’s in a wheelchair, she CAN’T fight back.

Her lawyer had this to say to Nyheter Idag: “Unfortunately victims of crime will find themselves in a worse position if they didn’t shout, scream, fight, scratch or bite. And partly because of her handicap she isn’t physically strong enough and mobile enough to have been able to escape.”

The men however claim that she wanted to have sex with complete strangers in a bathroom for several hours on end. And apparently the prosecutor chooses to believe this.

So it should come as no surprise that several locals in Gotland got pissed and issued threats towards the prosecutor, investigator, policemen and the suspects. The prosecutor got a “nightly visit” from someone, and the suspects aren’t even in Gotland anymore because of the threat against them. Which technically means they’re free to go somewhere else in Sweden and rape again.

And yet the establishment gets surprised at the anger. The media of Gotland is full of debate articles warning about racism, talking about how people need to calm down, and that Swedish men rape too. A collection can be found below.

This guy worries about racism.

The politicans say that “we need reasonable citizens now”.

This guy is talking about the influence of porn.

The police chief talks about “hate and ignorance”.

This guys draws comparisons to Nazi Germany and says that’s where we’re heading.

Swedish public service media along with “antiracist” organization Expo labels the demonstrators as nazis, or at least “ignorant people who are useful idiots to nazis”.

When the demonstration actually consisted of just plain ordinary people. The elderly, men, women, children, even immigrants. You could see strollers in the crowd of people, for christ sake.

Personally I think it’s about time Swedes get pissed off and speak up against their politicians. A demonstration is good. Everything is better than just sitting at home and being frustrated over the internet.

All our politicans have done thus far is to spit ordinary human beings in the face. They steal the peoples tax money, the result of a life’s hard work, and use it to implement policies that benefit everyone other than the people themselves. Then they call the taxpayers racists because they feel worried that hospitals don’t have enough room for people who need surgery, our senior citizens are living just a tad above street beggars in quality, and bathhouses and music festivals have suddenly become unsafe places for women.

Why should Swedish citizens behave better than Swedish politicans? That the politicans aren’t considered criminals is just a matter of how you want to define things. Their actions are certainly immoral at least, to the highest degree.

It’s not right to take the law into your own hands. That’s why politicans should listen to ordinary people instead of treating them like this. They’ve treated us like shit for far too long now.

On the upside, there is one piece of good news. Kinda.

This is from before the gangrape. The government is currently investigating sharpening up the rape legislation and adding more emphasis on consent, as well as a wording about severe negligence. According to the attorney of the woman in a wheelchair, a change to the legislation such as this would have helped her case if it was already in effect. He would’ve been able to have them detained in police custody and prosecuted.

He says that rape victims who don’t fight back very boldly are disadvantaged in court. The woman clearly said no to each new male who took turns with her, but yet that wasn’t enough. Even though she got injuries that have been documented.

According to him it should be enough: “Research shows that it’s not entirely uncommon that girls become paralyzed and shocked in situations like this, because they’re afraid of being hurt. My client wound up in that category, she became paralyzed. Eventually she gave up on the situation and aimed at just getting out of there alive.”

I agree with him. Swedish law, as it is right now, puts absurd demands on women. You basically have to beat up the perpetrator in order to be able to claim rape, physical resistance is necessary. This despite the fact that the most common reaction is freezing up.

Men are bigger and stronger than women, generally. Their bodies are weapons in their own right, and women are conscious of this. Expecting a frightened woman in a vulnerable position to smack a guy across the jaw, when he hasn’t shown any respect for her boundaries yet, is blatant idiocy. Why would she wanna give him an excuse to hurt her even more?

It’s not at all strange if someone becomes paralyzed in a situation like that. Ultimately it is men who have a special responsibility to be perceptive, not to just go “oh yay free pussy as long as she doesn’t shout loud”.

The new legislation that’s being investigated takes consideration to what reality actually looks like, and the part about “severe negligence” is especially important. It means someone could be convicted of rape without having intent, or premeditation. And the way it’s been the past years is that perpetrators have been able to get off just by claiming that “I thought she wanted it”, even when the girl has said no and the evidence spoke to her favor. But the intent couldn’t be proven.

Of course the rapist doesn’t have intent. Anybody who’s well-read on rapists knows that they rarely view what they do as rape: https://youtu.be/uvUSKkahl3M

They have zero self-distance. Usually they hate rapists as much as everybody else, and they don’t see themselves as rapists. If they happen to get convicted the best answer they can come up with when asked what happened, is “it just happened”. And if they complete therapy then suicide attempts are common, when they gain insight and truly realize what it is they’ve done.

Today the court focuses too much on whether the perpetrator understood or not. With a wording of negligence in the picture you’d be able to focus on the situation at hand, instead of the perpetrators personal view on sex.

Sex crimes in Sweden – Can you teach men not to rape?

RAPE

A myth circulating the internet states that in Sweden the majority of rapes are assault rapes, and that this is due to immigration from muslim countries.

First things first: It is true that immigrants are overrepresented when it comes to rape. A study by the Crime Prevention Council (BRÅ) from 1996 showed they were 4 times more likely to be registered for the offense, and this primarily concerning immigrants from arab countries. A follow-up study from 2005 more or less confirmed the results of the previous one, and so have studies from Denmark and Norway.

However, both Swedish reports showed that the majority of immigrants (85-88%) weren’t registered for crimes what so ever. These numbers shouldn’t be used to smear an entire group of people, they should be used to highlight problematic tendencies so we can counteract crime. If you want a further analysis of these statistics you can watch the video I did on this topic, I go over it extensively there.

There is truth to the notion that immigrants rape more than Swedes. My personal estimation is that approximately half of all rapes in Sweden are conducted by the immigrant minority which makes up 20% of the population. It’s also true that immigrants are more likely to be convicted of crimes due to stereotypes and prejudice within the justice system, but I don’t think that’s enough to explain the overrepresentation.

However, it’s also problematic when statistics get misinterpreted and blown out of proportion to the point where it’s ridiculous. It’s blatantly untrue that 77% of rapists are muslims, and the majority of rapes in Sweden are not assault rapes.

It’s said that 63% of all rapes are committed by a total stranger. This is the result of a misunderstanding. The number is pertaining to “sexual crimes”, a label which includes things like rape, flashing, prostitution, trafficking, molestation, sexual coercion and child pornography.

rapereserc

In 63% of the sexcrimes, the perpetrator was completely unknown to the victim, in 25% of the cases the perpetrator was an acquaintance, and in 11% of the cases the perpetrator was a closely-related person.

34% of sexcrimes were considered severe enough to the point where they would qualify as attempted, or completed, sexual coercion or rape. The safety study also makes sure to clarify that sexcrimes which occur in the home, or by someone the person knows, are very likely to be underreported in a study such as this. At the same time, the reported number of sexcrimes where the perpetrator is someone you know is 36% – remember, 25% acquaintance and 11% closely-related.

Thus it is entirely possible that the remaining 2/3 of sexcrimes – which aren’t rapes – are primarily those where the perpetrator is unknown. Do also keep in mind that assault rapes and stranger-sexcrimes are not the same, one other report from BRÅ states that 12% of all reported rapes in Sweden are assault rapes. This is along the same line as public statements made by the police – it’s a minority, not a majority.

Page 10 in a different report about how rape is handled in the legal system states that, more than anything, the suspects are most often someone you have a relationship to – whether it’s someone close like a boyfriend, or someone more shallow like a classmate.

Add to this the fact that assault-rapes are more often reported than rapes by someone close to the person, for obvious reasons. It’s not very easy to report someone that you know as a figure in your day-to-day life, especially if the rapist is a respected member in the community. Some fear not being believed, and some simply don’t want to stir up controversy in their social circle. Imagine having to tell all your friends that the well-liked good-looking guy they all know raped you. Yeah, it’s not a fun thing to do.

Also, since the rape wasn’t brutal and violent the victim might try to rationalize that it wasn’t ”that bad” to save themselves from the traumatic experience. Here’s one account, another, yet another, and one by a man – They all display the same repeating pattern and the reaction is gender neutral. The man describes how he was drugged and raped at a party, and kept dating her afterwards – because the idea of being raped, as a man, was so horrible that he pushed it away and acted like it wasn’t a big deal.

Acquaintance rape victims also tend to blame themselves more, especially if alcohol was involved. Being attacked by a madman in a park sort of takes away the whole aspect of: ”Did I do something to lead him on?” So all in all, acquaintance rape victims are overall less likely to speak out, seek help and tell the authorities. All the talk about “women’s responsibility to avoid rape” probably keeps women from reporting as well.

The amount of unreported rapes, according to Sweden’s Crime Prevention Council, are 90% and it’s assumed that these are primarily acquaintance rapes. It is thus most likely that the saying about how most rapes are done by someone the victim knows isn’t at all a lie. The numbers indicate that it’s primarily “ordinary” men who rape, and not maniacs hiding in bushes.

People don’t understand that a typical rapist is a typical person

He’s an ordinary guy. Or at least he appears to be an ordinary guy. On the inside there is nothing ordinary about him, but on the surface there’s nothing differentiating him from other men when it comes to everyday appearance, behavior and social relations. It can be someone good-looking, or ugly, a loner, or a popular guy with many friends, single, or with a girlfriend, unemployed or in a prestigious profession.

So when someone drags up consent classes as a possible tactic towards rape, and you reply by saying ”Im a nice guy who would never do anything bad”, it really doesn’t mean anything. Most rapists are seemingly nice guys, and certainly see themselves in that light.

A study was done where nearly 1900 college students were asked four questions to determine if they had ever raped someone, or attempted to rape someone, but the study never used the word “rape”. And 120 men, meaning 6%, answered yes. A similar study which surveyed 86 male college students found similar results.

It turns out that as long as the word rape isn’t used, rapists will self-report. Because the word rape is taboo, and most typically rapists do not view what they did as rape.

If the immigrant minority which makes out 20% of Sweden’s population are responsible for half of all rapes, then that means Swedish rapists make out the other half. This is easy to forget when discussing rape, but it would be intellectually dishonest to ignore this and only focus on immigration.

Every so called “women’s issue” is also a man’s issue, because women raise us. They become our sisters, friends and girlfriends. I care about the rape issue because I care about the safety of women, not because I wanna use it as a cheap case against immigration.

In my video about immigrant rape statistics I concluded that there are several solutions to the problem, one being higher demands for assimilation, and the other being consent classes – both for newly arrived migrants as well as swedish youths (meaning both young boys and girls) as part of their general sex education.

This caused certain people to get upset and try dismissing me as a radical feminist. The usual objections took place, which is why I eventually decided to do a video on the topic of consent classes in general.

Everyone knows it’s bad to rape

Saying “everyone knows rape is bad” as a counter-argument is meaningless. The stereotypes of rape are so widespread in society people even become confused when you explain that someone can be raped by a boyfriend, and that violence doesn’t have to be present. They will downplay and say that it isn’t “rape-rape”, despite the fact that rape is simply defined as sex against your consent. The word “rape” is so ridden with misconceptions and taboo that not even the people who force others to have sex with them would use “rape” to describe what they’re doing.

The myths about rape, in practice, give rapists a social license to operate. They allow the perpetrator to hide in plain sight. To rape someone and still stay in the same social circle because she won’t tell anyone, since what happened doesn’t fit the sensationalist stereotype of sexcrime.

The unspoken pact to make excuses for what happened, look for mitigation or patch things over, so you can keep believing that what the people we know do to each other isn’t “rape-rape”. Since it wasn’t violent, and she didn’t fight and scream, it couldn’t be “rape-rape”. Making sure that you have it as comfortable as possible when you don’t have to ponder the possibility that a person you’re fond  of could be capable or something terrible.

The general publics ignorance about rape and what the average perpetrator looks like, is one of the reasons why the majority of sexual assault goes unreported. The stereotype of a rapist enables rape. This is especially true when it comes to child rape. When our society keeps the myth alive that it’s primarily the no-good muslim nigger or the dirty loser who doesn’t have any friends, that’s when a nice 41-year old teacher is given the leeway with a 14-year old victim.

How often don’t we hear the same thing repeated whenever someone gets caught for fucking kids? Interviews with the community saying ”oh we never would have thought that about him, he’s so nice, and shy, and tender. He’s so good with the children, they all like him. He’s not a black monster.”

This myth of the perpetrator makes it possible for the perpetrator to find his victim, and many times the parents just leave the prey over to directly to him. No parent would leave their child in the care of a dirty gypsy, yet they think it’s perfectly fine with the 41-year old nice good-looking teacher, or the enthusiastic camp leader. If you don’t know about the bad things in this world, they can creep up on you.

If men are a part of the problem then men can be a part of the solution. We need to talk about this and acknowledge the fact that rape is a much more complex issue than “those brown people are bad and it’s all about foreign culture, but when whites do it it’s just because they’re psychopaths”.

No, rapists aren’t necessarily psychopathic or suffering mental illness. You look at various studies done on incarcarated rapists and the number of psychopathic offenders vary from approximately 5% to 60% depending on the type of offender.

PSYCHO

Also, the mere fact that the term ”non-psychopathic offender” is used in rape research and statistics should tell you something. One study also concluded that rapists actually have more empathy towards women in general than nonsexual offenders, and the same degree of empathy as nonsexual offenders towards rape victims at the hands of other men. The study concluded that rapists may suppress empathy primarily towards their own victim rather than suffer from a generalized empathy deficit.

In my video about consent education I mention a Swedish book by a crime journalist who interviewed sentenced rapists. In one of the chapters, the author met a woman who had a rapist in her social circle. He had been sentenced by the court for having raped and beaten his former girlfriend, yet numerous friends of hers had dated him throughout the years. They refused to accept that he had raped someone, because according to one of the women: ”It’s just impossible, because he’s good in bed.”

That’s how fucking retarded people are. They think that if someone is a rapist then they’re ALWAYS raping, 24/7, every single time they end up alone with a woman. They’re totally incapable of seeing nuance and understanding the psychological complexity of human beings.

It’s completely possible for a person to be capable of tenderness as well as horrible violence. People wear many different hats throughout their lives; Father, son, librarian, firefighter, caregiver, thoughtful, arrogant, foolish.  We can be any combination at any measure.  What I’m saying is that he could be a caring, funny husband while at the same time being a rapist.  Loving to most people, and cruel to others. Evil does not have a face.

Now, the problem with sex education is that it often only deals with the biological aspects of sex, and not the psychological and social ones. Talking about pregnancy and contraception is great, but don’t stop there. Go on to cover the importance of boundaries, the unrealistic expectations porn creates, how consent works, the different faces of sexual assault.

Teach students that nobody else is allowed to define your needs and what makes you feel unsafe. That’s what people need to talk more about, what healthy sexual relations look like.

And even if it might not reach through to those in the risk-zone of becoming a perpetrator, it would at least educate the general public on how it all works so we can create a society that’s more supporting of victims, instead of hounding the shit out of them because their experiences don’t suit your ignorant prejudice about sexual assault. Steubenville wasn’t unique to America, we’ve had cases like that here in Sweden as well.

The reason I think there’s something to consent education is that they tried it in Kenya, and it gave results. Acquaintance rape dropped by 20%, and the amount of boys thinking that miniskirts were inviting them to have sex dropped by 50%.

Now, Kenya is a backwards fucking country. If you can take a country that backwards and get them to stop raping after just a few classes, imagine what could happen in a more developed country like Sweden or America? I really don’t think we should underestimate what can happen when people get together and talk. It also shows that rape can be the result of skewed perspectives, and that’s something you can change.

But of course, just sex ed on it’s own isn’t going to solve everything. This is just one step of many that need to be taken to eliminate sexual assault. Another step is more scientific research.

The little research that’s been done indicates that what creates a rapist is not one single factor or experience, but a combination of different factors contribute to the development of predatory behavior in a young person. Like for example social inadequacy, various types of exclusion, low self-esteem, attachment issues, family dynamics, violence in the family, and lacking social competence. One study also demonstrated that rape is 2x more likely in societies where gender inequality is normalized.

These factors aren’t automatically going to turn someone into a rapist, but they’re commonly reoccuring. There needs to be more research done to reach more conclusive conclusions.

Last, but certainly not least

A frequent objection I see is: ”Consent classes is one of the biggest feminist insult to a man’s intelligence, especially to a western man.”

First of all, these classes should be for both men and women. Only focusing on men as perpetrators wouldn’t be very inclusive since men can be raped, whether by women or boyfriends, and women can be raped by women as well. Consent is a matter of person-to-person interaction, not gender.

Second of all, who gives a fuck if you think it’s an insult? Your feelings are not an argument. If you’re truly serious about stopping rape then you wouldn’t have a problem sitting in a classroom for 2 hours. If you really care about fixing the issue you wouldn’t have a problem thinking: ”I know this doesn’t apply to me personally but maybe other people aren’t as smart, and there’s no way to know for sure just by looking which person might be in the risk-zone, so I’ll just take one for the team here.”

The feelings of offended men are not worth more than the security of women, for the same reason that the feelings of offended muslims and christians aren’t worth more than freedom of speech. There are certain virtues we as a society need to uphold. And catering to the offended is not one of them.

“Im gonna fuck you on Thursday”, Ali explained to the welfare case worker

afghanistan_0

This is a true story, but it sounds like some kind of comic book.

It all started in the Haga gymnasium of Borlänge. Ali, who is 21 years old and arrived in Sweden as a “unaccompanied refugee child”, went to the school and told the principal he wanted to start there. But the principal, Tommy, explained to Ali that he’s too old for gymnasium. A gymnasium is a secondary school focused on preparing students to enter a university for advanced academic study and normally the students are 16, 17 and 18. What Ali needed to enroll in was komvux, a special school for adults looking to repair their grades.

This process repeated itself several times over. On numerous occasions the young man showed up to the school, forcing the principal to explain time and time again (once with the assistance of a counselor) that Ali was simply too old to attend a school with 16-year olds. And as a result of that, Ali finally decided to violently punch the principal in the back of the neck. As soon as Tommy had turned his back, Ali was reminded of the quintessential saying by the Roman poet Horatius: “Seize the day” – KAPOW!

A few days later Ali shows up to the welfare office and demands more money. He says he gambled up the money he got. When they denied him money he decided to kick apart several of the workers cars.

The next day he returned again with more demands. When he, yet again, was denied money he threatened to burn the place down and told a female social worker that he was going to “fuck her on Thursday”. On his way out he threw a trashcan through the window and also smashed the interior of the office.

After that he went downtown, saw a city guide, grabbed the megaphone-equipment that was hanging around the guide’s neck and almost threw him down some stairs.

Yet another couple of days later he returned again. This time they had assigned security guards to protect the staff from this scoundrel. The guards recognized him and went to reject him, when Ali decided to punch one of them in the face. Then he smashed a window causing shards to fly, which cut the other guards hand. Ali then continued smashing office interior and threw a trashcan. Afterwards he molested 3 female employees who were taking a break outside of the building. One was slapped, another woman was kicked and the third woman was shoved.

It was first after all this that the police decided to do something. When they interrogated him, Ali let them know that the Swedish school system sucks, and he started boasting about how much better life is in Iran. Among other things he claimed that in Iran he was allowed to go to school how much he wanted, that the police treated him to food and that he’s being treated like an animal in Sweden. He also denied all the allegations and painted the image of himself as a victim.

Basically, this guy took on Sweden the same way you take on a new city in Grand Theft Auto. And it’s not even certain he’s gonna be spending so much as a year in prison, no less get deported.

But hey, that’s what happens when you build an entire justice system on the notion that everyone who behaves badly is a victim of their surroundings. This is an entirely separate case where a 19-year old stabbed two security guards. They were both injured severely, and the prosecutor had this to say:

“But at some point you have to ask yourself if it’s really necessary to keep a 19-year old locked up? This man has nearly no criminal record and doesn’t belong to the “dangerous guys”. In that case you need to compare the proportions and think of the trauma it entails for a 19-year old to be locked up when he should be going to school.”

Reminds me of that time a completely different prosecutor didn’t want to push to get a Somalian citizen deported, after the immigrant had raped a woman while she was dying from a drug overdose. The prosecutors reasoning was that he “doesn’t understand why a somalian woman would be worth any less than a swedish woman. If he’s deported he could commit crimes in his home country, and I don’t differentiate between people like that.”

Eventually the prosecutor did change his mind and managed to get through a deportation plea, but it’s only valid for 10 years. After that the necrophiliac rapist is welcome back to Sweden.

The same prosecutor also said it’s rare that criminal immigrants get deported from Sweden. I believe him. It doesn’t feel like justice happens very often in this country. A 23-year old immigrant once assaulted a senior-citizen couple and ended up killing the 78-year old woman of the couple. He punched her in the face so she fell to the ground, and she hurt her head so badly from the fall that she died two days later. The 23-year old got 1 year and 8 months in prison, and didn’t get deported.

Let’s get back to the bad boy rebel Ali who wants to rape his social worker. A witness account on the forum Flashback says that the principals of that particular gymnasium were completely passive when one of their students was bullied into changing schools. This is because the student was a Sweden Democrat, and apparently the principal didn’t want to take a stand for such a terrible filthy racist. Funny then, that his reward for antiracist altruism ended up becoming a taste of multiculturalism gone wild.
