Sweden's Liberal Immigration Policies and Its Total Collapse...
CBN News released a video earlier this year which few people have seen, but is incredibly powerful. It's all about Sweden... and immigration. For decades, Sweden has accepted more immigrants than the UK, France, and all the other Northern European countries combined. It has been one of the most immigrant friendly countries in the world - a title many leftists in the US wish was ours. But what happens to a country that welcomes everyone, all the time, regardless of who they are, where they came from, or why they're moving in? Check out this video. It could be the most important 7 minutes of your day:
"The main problem in Sweden is that these facts are not openly discussed. The right, and the left, and the media, they've formed an iron cartel to basically censor negative facts about immigration and sort of highlight positive spin on this issue." Sound familiar?
"If you say immigration is bad for the economy, you're saying the same thing as the skinheads, so maybe you're a racist... The social truth wins over the factual truth."
Social truth. Social justice. What ever happened to actual truth? Actual justice? Are those still things?
And while yes, most of the immigrants coming to Sweden are Muslims, the overall immigration issue addressed here is much deeper. If we'll let them, the simple facts from the video speak for themselves.
- Jews are fleeing Swedish cities due to the dangers of violent anti-semitism.
- Schools are not only failing, they're also not safe for children.
- Sweden has the fastest growing income gap (think wage inequality) in the world.
- Free speech is being squelched.
- Their economy is shrinking.
- Segregation is rampant.
Sweden's not creating a utopia with its free and democratic welfare state. It's driving itself into oblivion.
As the Gatestone Institute points out, Sweden's immigration levels are simply not sustainable:
One may safely predict that Sweden's goose will be cooked well before the December Agreement runs out in 2022. Its days as a free and democratic welfare state will be over. A population of perhaps eight million Swedes cannot accommodate and pay for perhaps four million such immigrants in eight years. It is as if the U.S. were to accept 150 million.
150 million! That's not sustainable. That's not even smart!
But it's not just one organization or video saying this. A simple Google search will give you more information about Sweden's failures than you could read in a lifetime - and each of them can be directly or indirectly traced back to the country's immigration problem. Immigration costs Sweden over $14 billion per year, and is literally driving them into economic failure. The Gatestone Institute noted that Sweden is rapidly changing from "Humanitarian Superpower" to a completely failed state. Or as another headline reads, "Soviet Sweden? Model Nation Sliding to Third World."
How does a model nation become third world? Immigration gone wild eventually leads to a cultural collapse. Always. Sure, we should love people and welcome them. But not all of them. And we can't just keep giving away free stuff. Helping people doesn't mean running their lives, it means giving them the opportunity to succeed on their own. If you want to immigrate here, you should have the skills to make yourself successful, not be dependent on the government for your well being. Despite what leftists will tell you, it's not working in Sweden, and it won't work here.
