Sweden is rethinking its stance on multiculturalism as the country begins to buckle under the weight of migrants that have flooded the country since 2015, who continue to refuse to assimilate.
Migration Minister Anders Ygeman is now pushing for Sweden to adopt something like Denmark – limits have been placed on the population of non-Nordic migrants who are living in troubled neighborhoods.
Ygeman admitted during an interview with Dagens Nyheter (DN) newspaper, that heavily populated migrant areas around the country where they have little desire to integrate into the Swedish culture, has become a huge problem – The heavy populations are creating ghettos.
A policy similar to Denmark, ghettos would be broken up and people would be split and put elsewhere, in an attempt to stop “parallel societies” that result in crime and social dislocation. The new changes would mean at least 50 percent of the population of any area would have to have come from Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, or Norway.
“I think it is bad to have areas where the majority are of non-Nordic descent,” Ygeman told DN.
“If you want to learn Swedish, you have to practice. If you live in an area where you can get by with the language of your native country, it becomes enormously more difficult to learn and develop the language,” he added.
“If, in addition, you have a job where you can get by in the language of your native country, where will you practice Swedish? In that context, I think having that kind of goal can say something important,” explained Ygeman.
Before the mass migration began to change the landscape of Sweden forever, twenty years ago the country was one of the top 20 most peaceful countries in the world. The economy was strong, and the population had a good work ethic and there was low crime.
Since 2015, when the war in Syria kicked off a mass exodus from North Africa and surrounding areas, reaching into Asia, Sweden has been one of the main targets, as its benefits and tolerant, somewhat submissive people, allowed the migrants – largely from Somalia and Afghanistan – to gain a foothold in the suburbs, creating no-go zones due to the level of violence they would commit against police.
By 2018, one in every four women in Sweden had been sexually assaulted or raped by a migrant.
The restrictions are necessary if countries like Sweden and Denmark expect to keep their heads above water –what the West accepts as decent behavior, is often lost on populations who are used to nothing but chaos.
The spiral has been quick since migrants began to pour in and German newspaper Bild, stated in a headline, “Sweden is the most dangerous country in Europe.”
Migrant hotspots are breeding gangs, which is contributing to the record high number of shootings – hitting 46 homicides in a total of 335 shootings in 2021.
