‘Multiculturalism failing’: Swedish PM pleas for order as riots engulf Stockholm suburbs
RT ^ | Edited time: May 22, 2013 10:49

Posted on 05/22/2013 5:20:32 AM PDT by Pan_Yan

Hundreds youths hurling rocks, burning cars and smashing windows for the second day in a row in Stockholm say they are protesting against police brutality and inequality. In Sweden, critics of the multiculturalism policies lash out at immigration laws.

Seven policemen were injured, at least ten cars and countless containers set on fire, and dozens of windows smashed in several heavily immigrant-populated neighborhoods of the Swedish capital on Tuesday.

The police said some 300 people are now taking part in riots, which started in protest against the shooting of a man allegedly armed with a knife in the Stockholm district of Husby. The protesters also cited beatings and ‘discriminative’ derogatory remarks of the officers.

The protester are mainly young, the police said. Of the seven rioters arrested on Tuesday only four were detained, two of them later released, and one turned out to be underage.

All of the men arrested on suspicion of violent rioting and assaulting a public official were aged between 15 and 19, the police said.

Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt on Tuesday commented on the matter, urging a halt to the violence, but acknowledged in the short term that may be unlikely.

“We have groups of young men who think that that they can and should change society with violence. Let’s be clear: This is not okay. We cannot be ruled by violence,” Reinfeldt said as cited by the Local.

He also urged “everyone, including parents and adults” to help restore calm.

“Husby residents must get their neighborhood back,” Reinfeldt stressed, speaking of the district, where around 80 percent of about 11,000 residents are first- or second-generation immigrants. This particular district has seen employment increasing and crime falling in the last seven years, Reinfeldt added, speaking of the “right direction” it has been going.

I believe that these “youts” congregate in certain places on Friday. They are easily rounded up.

All it says is immigrants so I'm assuming migrant vegetable pickers from Central America?

Never a mention in the article that these are young MUZZIES?

Nothing in this kind of multiculturalism can come to any good.

I want to hear from the only Swede I know here on FR. I want to hear his take on it, and what he's seeing on the ground.

Maybe we can send a battalion of FR's Viking Kitties to aid in restoring order when the riots explode.

If you go to the very bottom of the 1st news accounts posted on FR, you’ll see what appears to me to be a Middle Eastern name. Google Sweden & rape; you should find results indicating a HUGE increase of that crime being committed by Islamics against Scandanavian women for intimidation purposes. This “rioting” was planned just like the various riots in France; the imams were only waiting for a plausible event to blame it on

Another mulit-culti failure. Diversity is not a strength anywhere but in Heaven, where there is no sin.

The article calls the perp's 'youths'.

The 'youths' are "hurling rocks, burning cars and smashing windows for the second day in a row in Stockholm," but of course, they're not culpable - its merely a difference of opinion.

The article prints, but does not endorse, the opinion that perhaps the failure of certain immigrant groups to assimilate has some bearing on the problem. Of course, the article refuses to NAME these immigrant groups, or the violent 'youths' who were arrested.

From the article, we might surmise that the immigrant youths have names such as Ajit Chandila, Isao Iijima, or Jean-Pierre Jeunet. But I'll bet they are mostly named Mohammed.

“Sweden has been trying harder than any of the countries in Europe to try to push for integration. We have invested virtually billions from taxpayers’ money into it, we have tried everything that the scientists have presented – and still it’s not working,” the politician argued.

And this is why Sweden will lose this war. Every time they legitimize the invaders at the expense of their own citizens/culture, they drive another nail into their coffin. We are still about 20-30 years behind Sweden in this regard in the US, but are making every effort to catch up.

Putin’s Speech on Feb. 04, 2013 this is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin....how scary is that?

On February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia :

“In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia , to work and eat in Russia , should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia , and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We better learn from the suicides of America , England , Holland and France , if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a standing ovation for five minutes.

Shooting Muslim rioters would go a long way to restoring order and balance to civil society.

I watched that series. Very disappointed in the way it ended.

(I think now that the main reason that I kept DVRing was that Ragnar looks like my deceased son.)

300 people are now taking part in riots, which started in protest against the shooting of a man allegedly armed with a knife in the Stockholm district...

Yo Sven, load up one 747 with the rioters and drop them off in Southern Libya. Viking and Lutheran blood must be running damn thin to let 300 Worthy Oriental Gentlemen disrupt the whole country.

If the authorities don't act, some mighty unfashionable people will, eventually. Even in that namby-pamby country.

Eventually Europe is going to rise up and these people will be wiped out. Not deported, wiped out. It is the European way.

* we have tried everything that the scientists have presented *

Oh, “SCIENTISTS”. That pretty much explains it.
Slap a sticker on a honeydipper that says “Science” on it and people will believe anything.

Global Warming for example.

“The science is settled”

“My 1200 UN Scientists are the really truly real scientists, not your 31,000 “fringe scientists” that dispute me. After all, I'm the guy who discovered that it's millions of degrees just beneath the surface of the Earth! Also, I invented the Internet”

Putin gets it. Amazing when the leader of Russia is a much more honorable man than the “leader” of the USA.

Sweden is a country that requires every household to have an assault weapon, isn’t it?

And I mean a real, full auto, AW. Not a semi-auto modern sporting rifle.

Seems the local citizenrey is well positioned to take matters into their own hands.

If they were ever inclined to do so.

Western socialists are great. Sooner or later they realize tribalism’s divide and conquer hate strategy will tear up their own nest.
