Sweden cannot go on

Another entry from the Daily Mail; key quotes:

A stranger came up to me in a coffee shop to say much the same thing. She had read my first report. She implored me to shout louder. She said Sweden cannot go on pretending it is some kind of utopia. That it is on a path to fail, that her friends fear Sweden is being overwhelmed.
This is the state of liberalism today. So determined to prove I am wrong, my observations erroneous, the stories I have on tape inaccurate, that it has lost all sight of the raped migrant child crumpled in the corner. Similarly, the 'we know better brigade' are so puffed up with smug self-importance as they point out Trump got his dates confused over the troubles in Sweden, they canít see past their own chest to the riots in Rinkeby.
She confirms (without specifics) grenade attacks and no-go zones.

Thanks for keeping this alive nb. I've been pointing out to FB friends that Political Correctness is precisely what made possible the election of Donald Trump as the "leader of the free world." Here is another prime example, in the making. By ignoring, nay, hiding and apologizing for a very real threat to the dominant social fabric, the political left makes every alternative look better by comparison. And when one of those alternatives is saying, "we will protect the dominant social order" it is just that much more appealing to people like those quoted in this story.

The author summarizes the situation: "They share a single message; Sweden cannot begin to solve its problems until it starts talking about them."

By electing Donald Trump, Americans finally heard the words "radical Islamic terrorism" from the well of Congress.

And it is increasingly clear that the western European democracies will have to take equally extreme measures before it can even think about talking about its problems, at least in public. Even if it means electing a "racist" a term with almost no meaning any longer, for the same reason I mentioned at the outset, like Marine Le Pen in France.

If it happens, Progressives, social democrats, leftists, you'll have none to blame but yourselves.

I really must include this insightful quote from nb's linked piece:

He explained that to accept there is a problem would mean accepting nearly 80 years of liberal thinking was wrong. That multiculturalism doesn't work, that mass immigration does not lead to integration, that Sweden has made a big mistake.

The quote is from Mattias Karlsson, leader of the Swedish Democrats - currently leading in the polls.
