Imagine that a particular group of people were immigrating to a region, then once there crime increased drastically, with rape being one of the highest crimes committed by members of this group. In 2014, one way you might bring awareness of the problem is to post an article or write a comment about it online, knowing our First Amendment keeps us from being hunted down like criminals. Because of Freedom of Speech, we are all entitled to express our differing opinions.
However this isn’t the case in Sweden, where a newspaper hired criminals to hack into Disquis to learn the identity of someone who posted their opinion on a blog.
Reports journalist Pamela Geller:
One of Sweden’s biggest newspapers, Expressen, used criminal hackers to break into Disqus and get the email addresses and identities of commenters online, and to reveal the persons behind the nicknames or anonymous user IDs. The newspaper sent a reporter and a cameraman to one person’s home and asked them about things they had written on different websites. Expressen published the names and photos of some people, which led to at least one person losing his job.
It’s not surprising that Swedish immigration is controversial. Once a homogenous land with one of the world’s lowest crime rates, waves of Muslim immigration are now transforming Sweden into, according to one United Nations report, what will soon be a Third World country. Frontpage Mag’s Daniel Greenfield reports on this sea change, writing:
Sweden’s population grew from 9 million to 9.5 million in the years 2004-2012, mainly due to immigration from “countries like Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia”. 16 percent of all newborns have mothers born in non-Western countries. Employment rate among immigrants: 54 percent.
Sweden now has the second highest number of rapes in the world, after South Africa, which at 53.2 per 100,000 is six times higher than the United States. Statistics now suggest that 1 out of every 4 Swedish women will be raped.
Seventy-seven percent of these rapes are committed by “foreigners”; the vast majority of these are Muslim, while most of their victims are native Swedes. And these figures, say critics, are likely low-ball estimates by authorities that would prefer to whitewash the problem altogether…
…Then there is the more visible violence. As in France and elsewhere, Muslims in Sweden burned buildings and hundreds of cars last year in rioting centered in the Stockholm suburb of Husby. And many of the nation’s Jews now fear being assaulted by Muslims and are emigrating.
