Something Is Rotten in the State of Denmark.
According to the United Nations, there are presently over 65 million displaced persons in the world today. United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi laments that;
“People fleeing war are finding their way blocked by closed borders. Closing borders does not solve the problem.”
This issue, perhaps more than any other, serves as a sharp dividing line between the mishmash of “citizen of the world” liberals, New World Order globalists, Chamber of Commerce big labor-types, and deeply misguided open borders libertarians on one side, and those desiring the preservation of the nation-state on the other. Think about it: Sweden, as it was a few decades ago, is not “Sweden” without a largely uniform population of Swedes. The modern world has been defined in no small part by the move away from the era of empires to the smaller homogeneous “nation-state.” What exactly constitutes the nation-state I covered here. In the post-modern world, the dividing line is between people who believe we must transcend “mere” nationalities and “arbitrary” borders to a fully globally-integrated society, and those who believe we must preserve the mores, traditions, cultures, and genes of distinct, unique peoples in their own homelands.
As I said, “Sweden” does not work without Swedes. In the last twelve years, Sweden has taken in almost 1.4 million immigrants, asylum-seekers, and various other “migrants” that we know about, which is 14% of the entire population. From the Washington Post, of all places:
Strong democracy correlates with ethnic homogeneity. The democracy index is inversely related to ethnic fractionalization... This result is consistent with theory and evidence presented in Aghion, Alesina, and Trebbi (2002). The idea is that in more fragmented societies a group imposes restrictions on political liberty to impose control on the other groups. In more homogeneous societies, it is easier to rule more democratically since conflicts are less intense. When people persistently identify with a particular group, they form potential interest groups that can be manipulated by political leaders, who often choose to mobilize some coalition of ethnic groups (“us”) to the exclusion of others (“them”). Politicians also sometimes can mobilize support by singling out some groups for persecution, where hatred of the minority group is complementary to some policy the politician wishes to pursue.
What’s more, the modern welfare state rests on a similar proposition. It is (supposed to be) a social contract where fellow citizens all contribute in the event that they should fall on hard times or at the very least with the understanding that the money would go to help a fellow citizen in crisis, even if there might not necessarily be an expectation of reciprocity for a more affluent individual. In a high-trust society, there is generally minimal objection to paying a small percentage of income into a fund that would bridge a neighbor or community member between periods of employ should something happen. But the justice of welfare relies solely on this social contract—the understanding that these funds would go to someone genuinely in need who has also been a participant in paying into the fund and is not an alien free-loader who takes but does not reciprocate.
Swedish Minister of Social Affairs Annika Strandhall recently referred to the nation’s elderly as a “nuisance,” presumably because the taxes they paid in all these years that SHOULD BE going to them in retirement are now ear-marked for their children’s and grandchildren’s replacement population in the form of the new protected class of migrants; therefore the elderly Swedes—not the hundreds of thousands of illiterate feral cancers ruining a previously serene, beautiful country—are causing budget deficits and are suddenly an inconvenient nuisance. Or worse. Where have we heard this before: “Just die off!”? This is just one consequence of what happens when the ties that bind—the social contract, the compact between generations, the compact between the government and the governed—become threadbare and snap. Even before the 2015 “migrant crisis” horror show, 57 percent of welfare payments in Sweden in 2012, for example, went to immigrant households. There is a reason in the United States that we have a law on the books calling for the deportation of any green-card holder who becomes a public charge within five years of arriving in the country, and only if they have forty quarters of work are they then eligible for benefits after that five year period (some states have different rules and categories, and there are a few categories on the federal level that except people from these restrictions, some of them reasonable, some of them absurd—for example, simply being Cuban, Haitian, Iraqi, or Afghani), though of course this law is rarely if ever enforced.
Put simply, the people in these (formerly) idyllic Scandinavian havens of unreasonably attractive and intelligent individuals have been betrayed by leaders that will be spit-roasting in hell for all eternity, and it’s not even like the leaders are “trading up.” I may not support but I would certainly understand if Chad decided to import a couple hundred thousand Danes. In an article from the Journal of Scandinavian Studies in Criminology and Crime Prevention, we learn that:
In an analysis of Danish data, Andersen and Tranæs (2011) make a distinction between Western and non-Western immigrants, where the latter is sub-divided into Middle-Eastern countries and the remaining Asian countries. It is clear that there are important differences between these groups. Immigrants from the Western world are typically not overrepresented in the Danish crime statistics, so it is the ‘non-Western immigrants’ who are of primary concern… A number of previous studies have shown that immigrants are generally overrepresented in the crime statistics in the Nordic countries. This applies to Sweden (Hallsten, Szulkin, & Sarnecki, 2013; Hofer, Sarnecki, & Tham, 1997; Martens & Holmberg, 2005), Denmark (Andersen & Tranæs, 2011), Norway (Gundersen et al., 2000; Skardhamar et al., 2011) and Finland (Lehti, Aaltonen, Hinkkanen, & Niemi, 2014).
In that same article, “Immigrant Crime in Norway and Finland,” Torbjorn Skardhamar, Matthias Lehti, and Mikko Aaltonen compiled the following statistics: Afghanis are two-and-a-half times as likely as native Norwegians and over five times as likely as native Finns to commit violent crimes; Iraqis are almost four times as likely as Norwegians and seven times as likely as Finns to commit violent crimes; Iranians are twice as likely as Norwegians and six times as likely as Finns to commit violent crimes; Turks are almost twice as likely as Norwegians and over six times as likely as Finns to commit violent crimes; Pakistanis are almost twice as likely as Norwegians and over three times as likely as Finns to commit violent crimes; Somalis are almost four times as likely as Norwegians and seven-and-a-half times as likely as Finns to commit violent crime. They also found that Africans were almost four times as likely as Finns to commit larceny and almost twice as likely as Norwegians.
One hundred percent of convicted rapists in Norway’s capital city have a non-Western background, with white Norwegian women the target 90% of the time. 65% of the rapes in Norway are committed by men of a foreign background, and 80% of their victims are white Norwegian women. African migrants are three times more likely than ethnic Norwegians to be convicted of a felony, while Somalis, in particular, are 4.4 times more likely to be convicted of a felony than an ethnic Norwegian. Iraqis and Pakistanis have rates of conviction for felonies greater than Norwegians by factors of 3 and 2.6. 2.5% of the residents of Helsinki, Finland are foreign nationals, yet they commit 38% of the violent crime. Men of foreign origin commit rapes at three times the native Finnish rate.
But wait, there’s more! 9 out of 10 of the most criminal ethnic groups in Sweden come from Muslim countries. 80% of molestations in Sweden’s public baths have been committed by men of foreign origin. Over half of all convicted Danish rapists have immigrant backgrounds, with Iranians, Iraqis, Somalis, and Turks dramatically overrepresented. Lebanese, Palestinian, Moroccan, Somali, Pakistani, and Turkish men in Denmark all have crime rates at least double the country’s national average. One in three persons convicted of sexual assault in Denmark is Muslim, despite constituting less than five percent of the population. Eight of the nine ethnic groups most represented in Danish prisons are non-Western immigrants and non-ethnic Danes are two to three times more likely to commit crimes than Danes. Each “under-age” “migrant” (two-thirds of whom have lied about their ages) costs the Danish government $80,000! The average Dane earns in net salary, after all those taxes, $54,290.
Even far-flung Iceland hasn’t been able to escape the migrant scourge. Despite accepting less than six hundred non-Western migrants, there have already been over one hundred reported gang rapes in Iceland in the past decade, crimes utterly unthinkable not even a generation ago. 2015 witnessed a spate of cybercrimes by ISIS, and in January 2017, the nation witnessed its first potential abduction/murder case with the homicide of a 20-year old native Icelandic woman by “foreign sailors,” whom she met over social media. Nevertheless, the country has pledged to accept more migrants over the coming years. The suicidal altruism that’s gripped the West apparently knows no bounds. According to Austrian newspaper _Der Standard;
“One thing is certain: the European population, which for decades has grown used to being born in the ‘right’ place in the world, and enjoyed this privilege, must now make room for others.”
I might have a solution, though—when winter comes, make the migrants heat their own buildings, plow their own roads, and shovel their own driveways.
