So What's Really Happening With The Refugee Situation In Sweden?

Submitted by: 5cats 5 months ago in News & Politics


It's almost impossible to get a straight answer, but here are the words of someone who has just been there. Who are you going to believe?

This is brought to us by Alex Jones' Info Wars.  The same "News" organization who claimed that the government is putting stuff in drinking water that makes frogs gay. The same "news" organization who presents stories with headlines like these:

"Obama Caught Running ISIS"
"Why Are Feminists Fat and Ugly"
"Is Michelle Obama Transgender"
And my personal favorite... "NWO Opening Thousands of Portals to Ancient Demons"

Info Wars is no more journalism than supermarket tabloids. Are we going to start sharing articles from "The Inquirer" as rebuttals to real media stories next?

I'd also like to point out that if we want to find out what's going on with Swedish immigration, why wouldn't we ask a Swede instead? If a foreign country sent a single reporter to the US for a week to research the intricacies of our immigration issues, we'd laugh at the absurdity and dismiss their so called "journalism" as inaccurate before ever reading it. Why?  Because it's impossible to get a true understanding of a nation's immigration situation in such a short amount of time.

The fact that this video is even being entertained is the reason why Trump got elected in the first place. Our nation is full of morons who ignore red flags left and right.

rob_swindol I wouldn't even put it on a par with supermarket tabloids.  That's still giving it too much status...

"I can't believe people would tell me not to do that". 

I can't believe that your journalist pals would either. I mean, free trip to Sweden, get to investigate stuff. This angle doesn't pass the sniff test.

I got bored about 6 minutes in when they were STILL crapping on about them being hostile to the camera. Notice that there's nothing about them just being hostile in general - it's all about the camera. "But gang members in Chicago love being on camera!" is a stupid counterpoint to make. Likewise repeatedly trying to turn 'problem area' into 'no-go zone'.

I have for some time now, read about the antics of so called migrants in Italy, Sweden, Norway, the U.K., and Germany. Reported by reputable sources. Reuters and BBC to name but two. 
I agree that infowars is fucked up, but even a broken clock is right twice a day - occasionally infowars is also right - one just has to look past the rhetoric.
As far as taking fancylad to task for allowing this post, my belief is that is not a good thing to only hear things one likes and agrees with. If not for keeping an open mind, if not for gleaning information from varied sources, then merely to know one's enemy.

Already stated infowars is fucked up, and that I get my info elsewhere - therefore, your comment is rather pointless.

Yep. Stopped the moment the logo came up. Infowars is on par with flat-earthers, holocaust deniers, and 5Cats. The fact that 5Cats thinks this is a reasonable source says volumes about how his "reality" is so biased and twisted.

Since we like infowars, here are some quotes:

"Orlando massacre was a false flag terror attack orchestrated by the Obama administration to restrict our freedoms"

"the government can create and steer groups of tornadoes"

"(Hillary) is an abject, psychopathic, demon from Hell that as soon as she gets into power is going to try to destroy the planet"

"Obama and Hillary both smell like sulfur. They smell like Hell."

And that the sandyhook massacre never happened and the "victims" were child actors.


Fuck Alex Jones. Fuck anyone who spreads his evil bullshit. Apologies fancylad, but fuck anyone who allows this to spread. I'm off IAB for a week as protest. This isn't OK.

4 years ago i lived in Lund near Malmo. It waa starting to take the strain. Cops had goven up on some neighbourhoods and some gangs ruled over the night life.

2 years ago i went back for a friends wedding. Beggers had been increased by a factor of 10. It was dirtier groups of foreign men were a lot more prominant staring at you.

I wonder what its like now. But it wouldn't surprise me if it has gotten worse.  Sweden dumped their asylum seekers in places like lundstedt with no prospects. Its highly regulated economy is not friendly to a migrant workforce. And they took too many. The other Nordics I know all joke Sweden used to be paradise until they fucked it up.

jayme21 Thanks for the first-hand supporting of the story. This will end badly, all around, and the liberal-leftists will be pointing fingers in every direction except at themselves, just like always.

What the hell, Fancy? Why are you approving something from Info Wars? It's bad enough that there even is a show as grossly misleading as Info Wars. You don't have to legitimize their conspiracy theories by approving a post here. Approving Breitbart crap is too much. This is just insanity.

markust123 As much as I don't agree with the ideology, this is free speech.  Jesse Ventura puts it well when he mentions that it's not safe speech which needs protecting, but controversial speech that one doesn't agree with which needs to be protected.

mrsnowmeiser Info Wars being able to openly peddle their lies and conspiracy theories is free speech. Legitimizing their lunacy from other sites like this one is what I am not happy with. That is just a reckless disregard for facts and the truth. If this is where IAB is headed count me out.

markust123 Hell no! IAB should only show ONE side of any story! A mono-view circle-jerk of extremist liberal leftism, and NOTHING less than that! Moderates can go fuck themselves, am I right? Er... left?
Fuck equality, only the right... er LEFT viewpoint should be seen here, ever! In fact censor comments that disagree with the DNC Playbook too, that's what IAB is all about! (end sarc)

mikesex The weird thing is how commentators like in the video seem to think that if life is anything less than perfect after taking in someone in need, then it's proof that hell now exists on earth.

"Look, I took some very tame video in a No Go Zone! Things are out of control!"
