Better late than never. Now even liberal fruitcake Michael Moore has had enough of Sweden's neglect of rapes and its unwillingness to strike hard on rapists. In an open letter to the Swedish government, published in the liberal news outlet Huffington Post, he addresses the problem:
"Dear Swedish Government:
Hi there — or as you all say, Hallå! You know, all of us here in the U.S. love your country. Your Volvos, your meatballs, your hard-to-put-together furniture — we can’t get enough!
There’s just one thing that bothers me — why has Amnesty International, in a special report, declared that Sweden refuses to deal with the very real tragedy of rape? In fact, they say that all over Scandinavia, including in your country, rapists “enjoy impunity.” And the United Nations, the EU and Swedish human rights groups have come to the same conclusion: Sweden just doesn’t take sexual assault against women seriously. How else do you explain these statistics from Katrin Axelsson of Women Against Rape:
- Sweden has the HIGHEST per capita number of reported rapes in Europe.
- This number of rapes has quadrupled in the last 20 years.
- The conviction rates? They have steadily DECREASED.
Axelsson says: “On April 23rd of this year, Carina Hägg and Nalin Pekgul (respectively MP and chairwoman of Social Democratic Women in Sweden) wrote in the Göteborgs [newspaper] that ‘up to 90% of all reported rapes [in Sweden] never get to court.’”
Let me say that again: nine out of ten times, when women report they have been raped, you never even bother to start legal proceedings. No wonder that, according to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, it is now statistically more likely that someone in Sweden will be sexually assaulted than that they will be robbed.
Message to rapists? Sweden loves you!"
Of course, Michael Moore, as the leftist he is, avoids mentioning why there has been a sharp increase of rapes in Sweden in recent years.
Edit: Apparently Michael Moore wrote this in 2010 and has since deleted it from his own website. Naturally.
And then came Trump, saying the same thing.
