Race, Immigration, and Rape in Sweden

The Fjordman Report

The noted blogger Fjordman is filing this report via Gates of Vienna.
For a complete Fjordman blogography, see The Fjordman Files. There is also a multi-index listing here.

According to a recent report, six percent of Swedish girls are raped every year, and that’s just the official numbers. Reality is probably even worse. The hostile Wikipedia entry on “Fjordman” previously claimed that my essays about the Swedish rape epidemic are false because the massive increase in rapes was caused by “a widening of the legal definition of rape.” I bet it was.

Swedish Umma

In this situation, the number one preoccupation of Swedish media is demonizing Israel, and the number two preoccupation is demonizing native Swedish critics of mass immigration and barring them from access to the mass media.

Sweden tops European rape league:
- - - - - - - - -
Sweden has the highest incidence of reported rapes in Europe — twice as many as “runner up” the UK, a new study shows. Researchers behind the EU study, which will be presented on Tuesday, conclude that rape appears to be a more common occurrence in Sweden than in continental European countries. In Sweden, 46 incidents of rape are reported per 100,000 residents. This figure is double as many as in the UK which reports 23 cases, and four times that of the other Nordic countries, Germany and France. The figure is up to 20 times the figure for certain countries in southern and eastern Europe.

RinkebyAs I have pointed out in my book Defeating Eurabia, where I devote an entire chapter to explaining the appalling situation in Sweden, Ethnologist Maria Bäckman, in her study “Whiteness and gender,” has followed a group of Swedish girls in the suburb of Rinkeby outside Stockholm, where natives have been turned into a minority of the inhabitants due to immigration. The subjects “may encounter prejudices such as the idea that Swedish girls act and dress in a sexually provocative way or that blonde girls are easy.” Bäckman relates that several of the Swedish girls she interviewed stated that they had dyed their hair to avoid sexual harassment. They experienced that being blonde involves old men staring at you, cars honking their horns and boys calling you “whore.”

Swedish girls suffer widespread harassment: report

Every third young Swede has been subjected to repeated harassment, threats or violence over the past year. Six percent of young girls have been raped, a new report from Swedish researchers shows.

What is the definition of rape in Swedish law?

This is not to deny the rape problem related to immigration, but I had a quick overview of the provided links and there are some legitimate questions asked by commenters there.

- 6 % of girls being raped every year seems extremely high, even without an international basis for comparison. This figure seems to come out of a study based only on individuals having visited youth clinics.

Doesn't that mean, by definition, that the proportion of rape victims is much higher among them than within the general population ? After all, why would you visit a youth clinic, unless you have an important physical or mental health problem ? If you had been raped, there would be a strong likeliness that you went to such a place, right ?

- Some commenters suggest that, for a girl, having sexual intercourse while drunk automatically "qualifies" you for rape in Sweden. Others say that you can claim important damages from your insurance if you say you have been raped after a trip abroad, and that insurance companies don't ask for details. Is that true ?

- One of the article claims (and I'm not sure whether this comes from the study or from the journalist himself) that an important part of the rape problem is due to the partying and binge-drinking culture. How about that ?

- Finally, what about the "widening of the definition of rape" ?

I hope someone can answer those questions for you. Unfortunately I'm not to good on stuff like that. What I do know however, is that the courts take lighter on rape perps with immigrant background than ethnic swedish perps. They have to weigh in that they come from a widely different culture than ours. Which is just sick. Also, the raped girls get asked questions on the matter of dressing when they where raped. If they had short skirts and visible cleavages and such, they are basically told that they can suit themselves who didn't dress more modestly instead. Another thing is that the family/clan of the perps are often audience in the courts, often giving thumbs up to their boys, whistling or shouting whore to the girls. Yes, swedish citizens are already dhimmis 100%, no doubt about it.

Robin Shadowes,

I'm amazed that alleged rape victims are cross-examined as to whether or not they dressed "provocatively",I'd assumed that Sweden was too advanced socially for such an attitude.As to considering the cultural background of the rapist when sentencing,remember the old expression "When in Rome..."

Robert M:

Re: widening def. of rape. There is some truth to that. A few years ago, feminist opinion managed to persuade the law makers to abolish a host of sexual crimes (such as, loosely, lewd conduct, sexual abuse, sexual obscenity, sexual explitation of teenagers and a few more) to be reclassified as rape. Needless to say, rape numbers got a significant boost after these changes. There are quite a few cases where the woman claimed rape after the fact that are based on no more or no less than being drunk while engaging in what seemed at the time as consensual sex to all involved.

Re: "binge drinking". Pure PC propaganda. Binge drinking, such as it is, has been on the decline the last two decades among the age groups that commit these crimes. There is no way that this is anything but a feeble attempt to hide the other big contribution to Sweden's extraordinary rape numbers besides the expanded definition.

Re: immigration. At the _very least_ an equal explanation as compared to the crime reclassification. There have been organized rape rings set up by immigrant "youths" targeting native girls and women that have claimed dozens of victims each, and needless to say, nothing like this ever happened before the Great Enrichment. Rape assault in public places - at night, in parks - is almost exclusively a preoccupation for the "New Swedes".

Ultimately, while the picture isn't quite as bleak as painted above, it is still WAY beyond the norm for most civilized countries, it is getting worse, and the background of the perpetrators prevents any reasonable social discourse of the topic since cries of racism and islamophobia are heard immediately when someone tries to raise root causes.

Sorry Fjordman, but:

"The survey showed that six percent of girls had experienced the most serious sexual offence - rape."

That's more than one in every twenty girls. That is one raped girl for every class in high school or college.

Those numbers are extremely why. If they are true - which I don't believe they are - why don't Swedish women do something about it?

I mean that because I have no doubt that the perpetrators are third worlders.
Why do they still support mass immigration?
Why do they still try to integrate / get in with the Third Worlders?

Here in the rural areas women tell their daughters to avoid groups of Gypsies (although I have never heard a case of a rape by a Gypsy. In the Gypsy community I have only heard of Gypsies raping their own wifes, never other women).
Here in the cities women tell their daughters to avoid large groups of men. Why don't they do the same in Sweden?
Are they trying to elevate the dumb blonde girl stereotype to another sad level?

"The subjects “may encounter prejudices such as the idea that Swedish girls act and dress in a sexually provocative way or that BLONDE GIRLS ARE EASY.” "

Why do they think that? Where the hell is education in Sweden?? Why don't fathers "protect" their daugheters?

P.S. - I remember an episode of "filha-da-putice". There was a tourist famaly in Lisbon. This was in a neighbourhood of Lisbon that is known for its scarce European population and markets selling fake products as well as the abundance of drugs. It is very close to the good areas however.
The family was clearly Northern European. I doubt they were British but it is possible. They were from the Netherlands or up, maybe Scandinavia.
The father, the 14 years old son and the 19 years old daughter were trying to get a bus. The late 30s, early 40s mother abandoned the family when they got into the bus and went to see the different shops of South Asians and stuff (there was really nothing to see there). The other three members called for her but they had to get out of the bus, and walk with her.
Why don't you make the women face the consequences of their lack of respect up there?

While i do believe the numbers too high lets not forget that it's common to women in degraded areas to be raped, robber, degraded several times. So while in a bad neighborhood a woman can be raped several times in a lifetime (africa) in the good ones women are not raped at all.

Not one thing i find amazing it's that in sweden even the common people side with these tugs. It's "normal" to the politicians and social workers do it but when the people think this way...

Afonso, while i do agree with you that youngsters and women shall pay for their lack of care i think that it's one thing to make them feel cold because they forgot the blouse but another thing is to let them freeze because of the mistake.

Thing about rape is this.... it is a crime many are ashamed of. Many women are ashamed of it. Many women become mad at themselves, and won't tell anyone. This is why quite a bit of the "date rape" concept stuff doesn't get out. According to my understanding of this all, the Muslims tend to rape women.

Rape the ones who are "whores" from their perspective. Rape their wife/girlfriend if they want sex and she doesn't. Rape is just part of the culture.

I would bet it is vastly more common than is just reported. Because it happens to virtually all the Muslim women, and to any native Swede that associates with one of the Muslims.

A few years ago Australia had the same problem and the authorities did not know what to do and still be politically correct.
The Australian MEN knew what they had to do to protect their women and their way of life. They busted some heads, problem solved. I used all capitals for MEN out of the utmost respect.

Why not think of the Palestinians and your 'New Swedes' as brothers and maybe you will understand the position of the Israelis.

Whatever happens to Israel will in due time happen to all infidels.

The Sweeds had made poor choice by letting every (third)world stinker to be their guest. The Scandinavians wanted to continue the tradition of Raul Walenberg by giving a shelter to people who try to escape war or dictatorship . They did so during the ’30 with German Socialists (Willy Brandt), they gave in 1943 shelter to Danish Jews. Later on they had rescued Jews from occupied Hungary (1944). By keeping this humanitarian tradition, they did not take a cardinal point in account: 3de world people in general and Muslims in particular are different. Muslims have the mentality of Morlocks (HG Wells, ‘Time Machine’) with two deviations: a) The Morlocks were hardworking creative creatures. Muslims have fun in raping every unveiled women and despise hard work.
b) Muslims keep their brains in their loins, are not technical and have no common sense .
