Norwegian Politician Raped by Migrant, Then Wonders if Attacker Should Be Deported

"I look at him as a product of an unjust world."

Several years ago, Norwegian politician Karsten Nordal Hauken was raped by a Somali migrant. The perpetrator was found guilty in a court of law, sent to prison for four and half years, and, upon release, was planned for deportation. 

For his part, Hauken was reportedly guilt-stricken and wondered if his rapist should really be deported. "I was the reason he [the rapist] wouldn't be in Norway."

The Norwegian politician spoke out about his story and journey to "forgiveness" on the country's public broadcast channel. Daily Caller reports: 

Immediately after the rape first occurred, Hauken was taken to the hospital in Oslo where nurses collected samples for DNA evidence. About six months after the rape, police completed their investigation. They secured the DNA and fingerprint evidence necessary to move the case forward.

In court, the Somali claimed the interaction was consensual, but Norwegian authorities begged to differ. The Somali went to prison for four and a half years.

The story doesn’t end there. Shortly before the sentence was over, Hauken learned the man was about to be deported from Norway and sent back to Somalia.

“I got a strong feeling of guilt and responsibility,” Hauken wrote. “I was the reason he wouldn’t be in Norway, and instead be sent to an unknown future in Somalia. He had already done his time in prison. Would he get punished again, and this time much harder?”

Apparently Hauken spiraled downward following the rape and turned to alcohol and marijuana for comfort. He claims to have since turned his life around, and in doing so, realized that rape can just be a "cultural difference."

"Rapists are from a world so different from ours," he said. "In his culture, sexual abuse is about power, not lust ...and it’s not considered a gay action to be the one who engages in power and violence."

“I don’t feel anger against my rapist, because I look at him as a product of an unjust world. A product of an upbringing full of war."

And this is why Scandinavia is doomed.
