Despite suffering numerous terrorist attacks and a growing number of "no-go" zones and "rape capitals" across their cities, multiculturalism-obsessed Eurocrats haven't learned a thing.
The latest case of leftwing psychosis concerns Swedish Left Party politician Barbro Sörman, who recently suggested that it's far worse when Swedish men rape women than when migrants do it.
Because, you see, when Swedes rape, they're doing it despite believing in "gender equality." Get that? The Times of Israel shares Sorman's fuzzy logic:
“The Swedish men who rape do it despite the growing gender equality. They make an active choice. It’s worse imo [in my opinion],” Sörman tweeted.
Sörman, a self-described socialist and a feminist, made the observation in response to what she claimed was excessive media focus on the fact that most of the rapes in Sweden are committed by immigrants.
She explained that Swedish men are brought up in a society that believes in gender equality and therefore should be held to higher standards than migrants, who come from cultures where women are treated as second-rate citizens.
After facing a storm of backlash, the Swedish politician canceled her Twitter account.
The Times duly notes that Sweden has become the rape capital of Europe, and that the rapists are disproportionately Muslim. "In 1975, 421 rapes were reported to the police; in 2014, it was 6,620," the Times reports.
“77.6 percent of the country’s rapists are identified as “foreigners” (and that’s significant because in Sweden, ‘foreigner’ is generally synonymous with ‘immigrant from Muslim country’), wrote conservative columnist Selwyn Duke. ‘And even this likely understates the issue, since the Swedish government — in an effort to obscure the problem — records second-generation Muslim perpetrators simply as ‘Swedes.’”
Of course some conservative politicians and activists are trying to right their country's trajectory, but they are routinely labeled racists and swiftly dismissed. Meanwhile Sweden's mind-numbingly suicidal leftists are still hell-bent on embracing their rapists and murderers at all cost.
