Swedish State Funding Sniper Training for... Wait, Islamic Refugees?!
With many in Europe arming themselves as best they can (what with ridiculous gun control laws) some are rethinking things. Like in Sweden, for example, the Swedish state is providing a sniper training course...
...for the Muslim refugees. Wait, what?
The Swedish state is funding a “sniper” training course for recently-arrived Third World “refugees” as part of their “integration program”—despite the ever-growing refugee-terrorist attacks across Europe.
The almost unbelievable plunge into insanity—started two years ago already—was reported—in a positive pro-refugee light—by the Allehanda newspaper in Sweden, under the title “Fired up for Sniping,” (Laddade för prickskytte, literally “Charged up for Sniping”) and shows a large number of Third Worlders being taught how to target shoot with “sniper” target rifles on a formal shooting ground in Sollefteå, central Sweden.
The Allehanda informs its readers that the “sniping course” began on a “small scale in the Fall,” but then for reasons which are obvious, but which the Swedish newspaper ignores, “interest exploded” among the nonwhite invaders to take the course.
When the Allehanda visited the shooting range, “more than 50 immigrant youths were on the course,” honing their shooting skills.
Hahaha! Wait, this isn't from The Onion?
Now that you've read this, I'd like you read about how ISIS is already publishing handbooks on how would-be Jihadi's should blend in with the culture they are looking to destroy. Yes, really.
Now, I can already see the comments section. Leftists shrieking "AHA! BUT YOU'RE ALL LIKE FOR THE SECOND AMENDMENT! BET YOU DIDN'T SEE THIS COMING!" or of course "YOU ARE A RACIST, STEPHEN!" despite the fact that my name is spelled with a "v." At the surface, it could seem like a valid argument. I get it.
Only it isn't.
For a few reasons. Not the least of which is that Sweden doesn't have a Second Amendment (learn more about why our Second Amendment is unique to the USA here). More importantly, that doesn't apply here. At all. This isn't about gun ownership, but about a very specific kind of training in a very specific kind of skill. One that can be deadly. And one that makes zero sense to teach to refugees who are committing crimes at an alarming rate.
For the life of me, I just can't understand the logic. "Say, let's take this high-risk pool of people and make them more dangerous than they were when they entered the country."
How about teaching these migrants some other skill? A disproportionate amount of them are on welfare, suckling from the government teat. So how about teaching them a trade? Carpentry, plumbing, trash pick-up, I don't know, how about Swedish? If that's too hard, pick some course from your local community center. Knitting, racquetball, baking, I don't care, even underwater basket-weaving. Hell, teach them a gender studies course and "how not to rape."
How about anything other than sniping?!
What's next? Classes on how to fashion prison shivs? Little known fact, the "shiv" is the tool. But when you ram it into somebody's abdomen, it's called a "shanking." Shiv is the tool, shank is the verb. Just a little tidbit. Put it in your back pocket. Thank your uncle Steven.
Back to my point. Sweden, can you please teach these Syrian migrants a skill that is literally anything other than how to kill more efficiently? Anything. Now I know what you're thinking...
Wait, Steven? Are you suggesting that we treat these Islamic migrants any differently than other people in our country, simple because of their ideology or their geographical origin?
Allow me to answer your question with a question of my own...
No wait, that wasn't a question. My answer is yes.
Send your angry tweets to me @SCrowder and I'll be sure to not care.
