The Dog Didn’t Bark at the Elephant in the Room

Fjordman has written numerous articles about the immigrant rape wave in Sweden. See the bottom of this post for links to his posts on the topic.

He has emphasized repeatedly that the authorities in Sweden are in denial about the nature of the rape epidemic, and that they attempt to explain it away without ever mentioning the number of rapes committed by Third World immigrants, especially Muslims.

The latest batch of statistics from Sweden confirms the pattern: the incidence of rape has increased dramatically in the last decade. Sweden, a historically peaceful country with a low rate of violent crime, is undergoing an unprecedented epidemic of rapes.

Since the government doesn’t keep statistics on the ethnicity of perps and victims, no one really knows the significance of immigration as it applies to the current crime wave. But anecdotal evidence strongly suggests that most of the perpetrators are young Muslim immigrants, often gang members, and the victims are “persons of Swedish background”. Read some of Fjordman’s articles for the details that point to this conclusion.

The latest report is notable for what it doesn’t say. The immigrant elephant is in the room, but the Swedish government and media are unwilling to acknowledge it:

Swedish rape stats rise

The number of reported rapes in Sweden has risen sharply in the last ten years, according to a new survey by Brå, the Swedish national council for crime prevention.

The report highlights other interesting statistics about the changing face of rape crime in Sweden.

Victims and rapists are less likely to know each other well and there have been less so-called random attack rapes in the last ten years.

The number of reported rapes on people over the age of 15 years has doubled since ten years ago. Around 3,500 rapes were reported in 2007.

According to the crime prevention council, rapes reported most occurred between people of no or little acquaintance. This type of rape has risen by 10 percent between 1996 and 2006.
- - - - - - - - -
“Rape is one of the most violating crimes against a person. The last decade has seen strong opinions voiced against men’s violence towards women, and the law regarding sexual offences has been reworked several times.

Now comes the most common explanation for the increase — more rapes are being reported nowadays:

“A change in the law also means that many more of the more minor sexual assaults are now considered a crime and are being reported. As a result, more rapes are reported, which is positive”, said Jan Andersson, director general of Brå in a statement.

The incidence of rape has doubled because more of the “minor assaults” are being reported?

OK. Now pull the other one.

Also: what used to be called “sexual assault” or “sexual abuse” is now called rape:

The law was changed in 2005 so that criminal actions that had once been classified as sexual assault or sexual abuse are now judged as rape. This also goes some way toward explaining the rise in rape statistics.

All right, I believe that. Now tell me the relative proportions: how many of the incidents now labeled “rape” would likely have been designated otherwise under the old system?

Reported rapes where the parties concerned don’t know each other often occur in a private home which doesn’t belong to either victim or rapist. The growing prevalence of this type of rape is not only due to an increase in reported rapes, but also to a change in people’s lifestyles.

So the atomization of society contributes to an increase in rape. I’ll buy that, but once again: give me the numbers. How much of the increase is attributable to such things? Remember, we’re talking about a doubling of the incidence of this crime.

And, when all else fails, blame the internet:

According to Klara Hradilova Selin of Brå, it should also be taken into account that “a more active night life and a flurry of internet dating websites enable contacts, often for purely sexual reasons”.

For some reason, all the rape-wave stories seem related to this one:

Fire-fighters given police escort to rowdy Malmö suburb

Before we go any further, notice the adjective chosen here by The Local: “rowdy”.

This word is used to characterize the rambunctious residents of Rosengård, a suburb that is made up almost entirely of Muslim immigrants.

Arson, theft, mugging, looting, and rape: put it down to simple “rowdiness”.

These kids, they’re like the high-spirited Taliban. Or maybe those zany cut-ups from Al-Qaeda.

Malmö fire-fighters will in the future be given a police escort when visiting the suburb of Rosengård. Fire-fighters have demanded protection after having been repeatedly subjected to stone throwing and death threats.

Authorities decided on Thursday to provide protection to fire-fighters after a call-out on Thursday evening turned violent. Fire-fighters were subjected to stone-throwing and received death threats when battling a blaze in Rosengård, according to SVT.

Fire-fighters are now required to await a police escort before entering the area.

So the firemen require a police escort.

What about those unfortunate girls “of Swedish background”? The ones who dye their hair a darker shade in hope of passing by a group of “rowdy” youths without attracting their attention?

It’s important to remember that these high-spirited youths are in the habit of setting schools on fire and then waiting for the fire brigade so they can pelt them with stones.

And while they’re waiting, they keep an eye out for some of those cute little blonde chickies to help them pass the time…


Steen, Fjordman, and TB all deserve hat tips for this stuff.

...they attempt to explain it away...---

The only explanations they give about the increase in rapes are:

1. Rapes are being reported more and more.
2. Crimes that weren't rapes are now reported as rapes... so there's more rapes not ACTUAL rapes.
3. Rapes are blamed on the change of LIFESTYLE(whatever the fuck that means)
4. rapes are blamed because how the victims behave with the perpetrators.(no more different than blaming the way women dress).
5. they blame alcohol.

this is just a typical example of how they blame anything including alcohol and pubs(apparently pubs kill people), they take away the blame from the victimizers.

http://www.thelocal.se/8597/20070925/



Swedish government and media are unwilling to acknowledge it:---

they KNOW it, but they don't wanna make it public, they don't wanna mention it... cause that would be: xenophobic, islamophobe... etc. so that's why they blame everything but the real reason.

D.K. Shideler said...

Baron,

I'm curious to get a reaction from some of your European correspondents from the following: (http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/06/18/europe/migrant.php)

European Union lawmakers voted Wednesday to allow countries in the bloc to hold undocumented migrants in detention centers for up to 18 months and ban them from EU territory for five years....Described by critics like Amnesty International as "severely flawed" and an erosion of human rights standards, but by supporters as a balanced approach, the so-called return directive passed in the European Parliament by a vote of 369 to 197, with 106 deputies abstaining.

Anything Amnesty International doesn't like is worth a second look as a possibly useful measure. /snark

Moko said...

Fire-fighters are now required to await a police escort before entering the area.---

the funny thing is. that many policemen are afraid to go there too, remember that we're talking about Sweden not LA, they don't have heavy weapons or BP vests... etc, and they can't do much because of the law, and don't forget that many are afraid of doing anything to people of other races cause that would be... racist!.

oh and:

It goes without saying that the government should be obligated to protect women (and men), by ending muslim immigration and having a zero tolerance policy toward violent crime. What I'm curious about is, how are women responding to this. I've already stated my own position, that I take responsibility for my safety by carrying a handgun, despite California's lack of support for self-defense. How many Swedes are prepared to stand up for themselves this way?

Whenever I read about some perp on the loose, authorities always recommend that women go out in groups. I assume this would be the usual recommendation in Sweden. The problem with this is, despite propaganda to the effect that women are more social than men, this is not always true. Going out by oneself is not only a human right, but also necessary for recreation and mental health. Going for a walk or bike ride alone is one experience, and a completely different experience when others are present.

This is what Muslim immigration is taking from a whole generation of Swedish women: the experience of just being a regular person and not having to do everything according to gender, even walking in public.

Paul said...

"The rescue services have also put in almost three million kronor ($496,500) into a three-year research project at Malmö College to raise awareness and understanding for the reasons behind these type of attacks.

"The point is to create a better dialogue between the authorities and certain population groups", Per Olof Hallin, project manager at the Malmö College, told TT."

"certain population groups..." That elephant in the room needs to be taken out of the room for all to see. We are up to our necks in dung already. We are trapped by the speech code in Sweden.

Zenster said...

First off: A government that cannot or will not protect its own citizens, especially from violent crime, abdicates all right to leadership and essentially invites replacement, be it by democratic process or revolutionary force. Either is entirely appropriate in such circumstances.

I also seem to recall how Sweden has one of the most feminist-influenced governments in all Scandihoovia. Given that these politically militant wimmen-folk are so up in arms about their national mascot sporting a package, one would think that a massive rape epidemic would send them into paroxysms of frenzied Bobbitt-like behavior.

The notion that these putatively progressive women can so vehemently put down the relatively mild average (wait for it ...) White Christian Male (gasp!), and completely ignore the brutal thuggery of immigrant Muslim men defies all logic and reason.

Much like Sweden's government, Swedish feminists are apparently immersed in crippling levels of moral hypocrisy and outright cognitive dissonance. Swedish men need to call these two-faced, gender-traitor, selective male-bashing femi-nazis on the carpet and let them know that they have beggared the situation with their own self-betrayal.

As latté island has noted elsewhere, this is where feminism mutates into flat-out totalitarian leftish hogwash. It is also a sure sign of a complete psychotic break on the part of these liberal nutjobs.

Defiant Lion said...

Well said Zenster.

This is marxism at work again. They know the problem and they do whatever they can to obscure the truth. The goal is to destroy western societies that is why the femmies remain silent about rapes on white women.

Except the Swedish Professor who said that it is the fault of the women because they dress provocatively. And there I was thinking that a woman had the right to dress how she pleased without fear of being sexually attacked by a lust-crazed male. A lust-crazed white male it would seem.

This kind of hypocrisy shows the left in their true light: West haters who care nothing for their own people and who want to destroy their own societies, i.e. traitors.

"To understand what has been happening, we should turn to the late Aida Parker, who quoted Lavrenti Beria, the head of the NKVD: ... "Degradation and conquest are companions. To be conquered, a nation must be degraded ... degradation can be accomplished insidiously ... and effectively by consistent and continual defamation ... continued and constant degradation of national leaders, national institutions, national practices and national heroes must be systematically carries out." ... By attacking the character and morals ... by bringing about, through contamination of youth, a general degraded feeling, command of the populace is facilitated to a very marked degree. The attack on the mind of a nation involves changing loyalties, we must have a command of their values.

"By perverting the institutions of a nation and bringing about a general degradation ... a population can be brought psychologically to heel..."

And this:

We are at war, but only one side knows it. Because of OUR (men) dereliction of duty, our women are on the front line and taking the casualties.

Fjordman said...

Sir Henry Morgan: You are right, the scale of violent crime whites are being subject to in countries such as Sweden resembles warfare. Not only does the state not protect people against this racist violence, it actively sides with the attackers. Which means that the social contract is now dead and buried in most Western countries. The state is either expensive and irrelevant or it is an outright enemy.

The numbers in Sweden, and no doubt elsewhere, are worse than we are told. They are being heavily manipulated by the authorities and the media, who claim that the massive increase in rapes is caused by: A) The warm weather/global warming, B). Alcohol, C) Internet dating sites, D) A technical increase due to the fact that women suddenly report rape more frequently than before. These are the explanations that are mentioned. There is no other. Suggesting that it has something to do with mass immigration of alien cultures is quite literally banned by law. A Swedish man was arrested, brought in front of the local court and sentenced for "hate speech" for carrying a sign during a demonstration suggesting that rape was linked to immigration.

Meanwhile, Norwegians are being told that we need to hire thousands of more cops to contain the massive increase in crime brought on by mass immigration (which is still supposed to be "good for the economy), a mass immigration that will not only continue but increase. Nobody among the Leftist media elites says it should stop, they say it should continue indefinitely, and there are more and more hysterical witch-hunts against "racism" by the white indigenous people. It's state-sponsored ethnic cleansing of the native population, cheered by our own media and intellectuals, in short: The greatest betrayal in history.

Fjordman said...

This is part of a massive and prolonged campaign of psychological warfare against whites in general that has been going on for several generations now, to strip whites of any sense of pride or self-respect. The current Swedish "conservative" prime minister has stated in public that his county's traditional culture was merely barbarism, and that anything good was imported from abroad. While Swedish girls get gang raped by Muslim immigrants who are met with "respect for their diverse culture," Swedish boys are being systematically indoctrinated with radical Feminism, in the most extreme cases being forced to wear female clothes and take female names by kindergarten teachers.

On the International Women's Day, March 8 2008, the columnist Marte Michelet in the left-wing pro-Multicultural Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet attacked "brown" Feminists. And no, by that she did not mean Feminists with a dark skin, but those championing "Fascist," racist and Islamophobic forces. She is the daughter of the Communist writer Jon Michelet and was until 1998 the leader of the Red Youth, the country's "revolutionary youth league." Many Marxist Feminists, who have for generations worked to break down Christianity and the nuclear family in the West, now passionately embrace Islam, the most repressive religion on earth. Marxists do not care about "women's liberty." They do not care about anybody's liberty. They support anything that can destabilize the West. The fact that a newspaper that has been at the forefront of radical Feminism for generations now suddenly warns against "Islamophobia" and "prejudice" against the world's most anti-female religion is highly revealing.

Fjordman said...

Attacks on Western history in order to instill shame into Western youths, a shame that militates against their thinking that their civilization is worth defending, are very common, especially targeting female students. Here is a quote from the book Religion of Peace?: Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn't by Robert Spencer:

"A white American student, 'Rachel,' unwittingly summed up this attitude when she told American Indian professor Dr. David Yeagley in 2001: 'Look, Dr. Yeagley, I don’t see anything about my culture to be proud of. It’s all nothing. My race is just nothing.... Look at your culture. Look at American Indian tradition. Now I think that’s really great. You have something to be proud of. My culture is nothing.' Yeagley mused: 'The Cheyenne people have a saying: A nation is never conquered until the hearts of its women are on the ground….When Rachel denounced her people, she did it with the serene self-confidence of a High Priestess reciting a liturgy. She said it without fear of criticism or censure. And she received none. The other students listened in silence, their eyes moving timidly back and forth between me and Rachel, as if unsure which of us constituted a higher authority….Who had conquered Rachel’s people? What had led her to disrespect them? Why did she behave like a woman of a defeated tribe?'"

I have engaged in endless debates with people who see no relationship between traditional economic Marxism, as promoted by Karl Marx himself, and today's "cultural Marxism." But they miss the point. The most important mutation that happened with the various strains of Marxism during the twentieth century was that they understood that the traditional doctrine that a Socialist society was "inevitable" was incorrect. Their revolutions didn't happen, in the West at least. But this didn't mean that they gave up their end goals, which have largely remained the same. They just changed the strategy needed in order to achieve these main goals, and focused on breaking down Western culture in every way, until there was no resistance left to implement their totalitarian society. That's what has been going on for decades now, where traditional attitudes to marriage etc. have gradually become banned by law. Turning Western women, especially white women, into weapons of mass destruction against their own civilization has been a key component of this strategy, and unfortunately a rather successful one.

Fjordman said...

"We are at war, but only one side knows it. Because of OUR (men) dereliction of duty, our women are on the front line and taking the casualties."

I'm sorry, but I don't buy this "blaming Western men" stuff. I'm tired of it. If we are guilty of anything, it is of being too kind too Western women, and letting them get away with their nonsense too often. If women want to be taken seriously, they should take responsibility for their own actions. Women cannot attack men for decades and blame them for being male chauvinist pigs, generally evil, stupid and weak and then expect men to come rushing to their defense to clean up the problems women themselves voted to create.

There are still a few sensible women left in the West, but they clearly constitute a minority. I've been told by radical Feminists that rape is a weapon used by men - that is, men in general - to keep women down. This is also the line Swedish Feminists usually take regarding rapes: It's about the "patriarchy," not about mass immigration. Swedish men are just as bad as the Taliban, as one prominent Feminist famously said.

As one of Marilyn French's characters said, "All men are rapists, and that's all they are." In Norway in 2008, we had a case where a native teenage girl had been gang raped by Muslim immigrants, and the four female judges voted in favor of giving the rapists a "discount" on the minor compensations they were sentenced to pay to the victim. The one dissenting judge was the one male. As the female blogger Nina commented, this and other cases indicate that we need fewer female judges, not more.

Women are simply too soft and emotional to be performing these kinds of tasks. The effect of radical Feminism is to treat all men as criminals, except those who really are criminals, who should receive soft treatment. All men are rapists, except those who actually are. They are victims of "society." Despite the fact that Muslim immigration has triggered an unprecedented wave of anti-female violence, women still vote disproportionately for pro-immigration parties, and yell "racism" to men who suggest it's not a good idea.

Women cannot be cruel to decent men and kind to evil men and expect that this has no consequences in the long run. Why should Western men worry about women who show us nothing but hostility? Maybe we'll just be patriarchal simpletons, drink beer, fart and watch football on TV?

Fjordman said...

What we are dealing with in the Western world is demographic warfare closely aligned with psychological warfare, aimed at breaking down our self-confidence and self-awareness to the point where our technological superiority is rendered useless because we are ashamed of ourselves or incapable of articulating what we should fight for. Sun Tzu in The Art of War said that wars are won in the temples before they are fought. The mass media are the temples of our time, which means that we are currently losing badly.

Robert D. Kaplan "re-read both The Art of War by the 6th-century BCE Chinese court minister Sun-Tzu and On War by the early 19th-century Prussian General Carl von Clausewitz. What struck me straight away, thanks to my recent travels-in-arms, was not what either author said, but what both assumed. Both Sun-Tzu and Clausewitz believe—in their states, their sovereigns, their homelands. Because they believe, they are willing to fight. This is so clear that they never need to state it, and they never do...Both oppose militarism, but accept the reality of war, and from that acceptance reason that any policy lacking martial vigor—any policy that fails to communicate a warrior spirit—only makes war more likely."

According to Clausewitz, "In affairs so dangerous as war, false ideas proceeding from kindness of heart are precisely the worst...The fact that slaughter is a horrifying spectacle must make us take war more seriously, but not provide an excuse for gradually blunting our swords in the name of humanity. Sooner or later someone will come along with a sharp sword and hack off our arms."

@Henry Morgan
Enlisting in the military is not the only way to be a man: hell, how do I know you're not gay? Joining a group does not make you a man, just, or good: such is only a mask. The wicked join churches to hide themselves; foolish women put on the churchlady mask to hide their true nature; and, knaves become preachers and priests, not because Christ has called them, but because being a preacher provides them with social power.

A man behaves like a man where ever he is: he stands on principle and acts accordingly: he does not sit at board meetings with a sh*t eating grin as women spew their bigotry; nor does a man sit there grinning foolishly, while the only man in the meeting puts up a fight against Christophobes. And in the end, the real man acts on principle and resigns even if doing so harms his standing in the professional community to which he belongs.

I've little interest in shielding people from the consequences of their actions, thereby enabling them to continue in their own folly. But I an concerned for the innocent. A question I've been mulling over of late is 'How do we protect the innocent while allowing the guilty to reap what they've sown?'.

In pondering this, it became quite clear to me that the glue that holds society is dissolving. We've a very long stretch of very rough road ahead.

Personally, I advocate targeted acts of violence against Marxist leaders, EU operatives, and militant immigrant leaders. I make no apologies for it. We are in a war. Import weapons (somehow) and take matters into your own hands. It's time to stop tolerating the terrorism, the humiliation, and the occupation. The sooner the gloves come off, the better.

Queen said...

Fjordman, you've only got one piece of the puzzle. Yes, the cultural Marxists merely reversed the order of their revolution, from economic destruction of the West first to cultural destruction first. But you miss the role of the global corporatists in all of this. They are allied with the cultural Marxists. Look, there was no reason for Western countries to begin importing massive amounts of non-Western people into our countries, except for cheap labor. And cheap labor could have been provided by Eastern Europeans -- or even some Western Europeans (back a few years ago, when unemployment in Germany was more than 15 percent, I read reports of educated Germans working as waiters and busboys in more prosperous parts of Europe.) The global corporations don't care who they exploit for cheap labor. They could have been happy with Eastern Europeans but their Marxist allies didn't want that. Their Marxist allies wanted non-Western people, the more incompatible the better, who could ratchet up the dissolution of the West and create conflict. So they went with what their allies wanted, everybody's happy - except ordinary Western people, the victims of it all. Also, if they'd stuck to Eastern Europeans and poor Western Europeans to provide their cheap labor scabs, the natives might have become restless as their standard of living and wages declined. Much better to import people of a different look and culture, so dissent could be crushed with screams of "racism."

Face it, what we're looking at is an alliance between economic fascism and cultural Marxism. And why would that suprise anyone? The Marxists and the fascists were in alliance once before against the West, until Hitler broke the Ribbentrop pact.

Fjordman said...

Saharians: You're a troll. Go somewhere else.

Fjordman said...

Yes, Queen, I sometimes focus too much on one side of the coin, although that one is very real. I've been told by "conservatives" that capitalism is always a force for freedom. But is that true? Both with the Danish cartoons and Wilders in Holland, senior business leaders have denounced the "Islamophobes" because they are scared of their market shares in Islamic countries. Business interests have been a major force behind the EU, which cannot simply be explained as a Marxist ploy. Many of the same capitalists think they have a god-given right to import any number of immigrants as cheap short-term labor, even Muslims, and let others foot the bill. If capitalists import Muslims at home and appease Muslims abroad because it's "all just business," is capitalism then always a force for freedom?

I agree with you. And just now, I don't see how we can break that alliance. We have too many enemies at the same time. I still think we can prevail in the end, but it's going to get a lot worse first.

@Fjordman
I recall reading twenty years ago an essay (or book?) that was discussing early 1800s visiting commentators such as Tocqueville: there was a mention of an Englishwoman doing the same. The essayist comments on the fact that both these writers commented on the deference American males gave their womenfolk: to the point of being "momma's boys."

Another writer, I recall, wrote of the increasing authority women acquired over ministers at the start of the Industrial Age: as more men were removed from the household because of work, the ministers became more dependent on the wives.

Esther said...

A very complicated subject, where facts can support almost any assumption, even when they're clearly published, but here's a few more points for thought when discussing rape:
1. How many rape reports end in a conviction (answer: in Norway it's very low).
2. How many years does a rapist get (answer: in the Scandinavian countries, it's very low)
3. How many people think women are at least partially to blame for their own rape (answer: 20% in Sweden, 50% in Norway)

I can't say much about Sweden, but going over statistics from Norway, I've discovered that:
1. Rape rate is highest in the north of Norway (very few immigrants)
2. Iceland (about the same amount of immigrants, but very few Muslims), has a higher rape rate. This might be incidentally connected to the fact that rapists there could get off with a few months in jail.

Immigrants, and particularly the recent asylum seekers (Iraqis, Somalis) are certainly overrepresented in rape crimes.

Researchers estimate that only 5%-10% of rapes are reported. Most rapes which aren't reported are probably those where the raped woman knows or is related to the rapist. This might go back to the idea of dating sites, 'encouraging' rape reports.

I'm just slightly surprised - nobody is bringing up the point that women are more likely to complain of rape because of the Scandinavian anti-male bias. (and maybe that explains the low conviction rates).

Finally, Scandinavia is not only importing rapists, they're importing women who work in the prostitution trade, and who make very easy rape targets. Anybody want to speculate on why Scandinavians (the people facing a rape wave by foreigners) need to import Eastern European and African women for sex?

Zenster said...

Superb comment, Esther. I'll try to post a reply later today. You have brought up some outstanding points.

Hyphenated American said...

Ahm...
"We are at war, but only one side knows it. Because of OUR (men) dereliction of duty, our women are on the front line and taking the casualties."

In America women tend to vote to the left of men. I am pretty certain it is the sames case for most European countries. This means that women as a group are far more responsible than men for the continuation of the left-wing policies in Europe. The Swedes, the Norwegians can simply vote for the right-wing government - the one that will use all means necessary to deal with the crime.

It's that simple.
