So far, the rioting by mostly Muslims in Stockholm and its suburbs hasn’t spread to other immigrant ghettoes in other nations of Europe.

But the longer the riots continue, and the harder the police try to crack down, the more likely it is that sympathy for the rioters will manifest itself in demonstrations and perhaps even violence in other countries where large immigrant populations remain outside of society and segregated into slums.

Friday marked the sixth day of violence in Sweden.

USA Today:

The unrest in poor, immigrant suburbs is the latest to break out in Europe over the past decade following riots in Paris in 2005 and in London in 2011. Analysts say they have much in common.

“The groups that are involved are some of the most economically deprived groups within society,” said Matthew Goodwin, associate professor at the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham.

“Whether it’s the young black males in London who suffer from the highest unemployment rates of all sections of society or the young migrants on the outskirts of Paris who again are blighted by very high levels of unemployment and very low levels of formal education, a perceived sense of injustice marked the disturbances much in the same way that riots in Los Angeles or in London were sparked by police action,” he said.

In Tensta, one of the Stockholm suburbs hit by rioting, the common complaint by young men gathered on the street was a lack of employment opportunities and activities for youth, along with police violence and racism, and a general feeling that no one cares.

“I don’t think it’s a good situation these days and it hasn’t been good for several years,” said Homa Badpa, a second-generation Swede of Iranian descent and spokesman for local organization Pantrarna. “Police are blaming groups like us for not saying ‘stop.’ But how can you say stop to the kids who protest? They are trying to make their voices heard and this is the only way to do this in Sweden right now.”

Pantrarna is an organization working with community youth that took its name from the U.S. Black Panther Party, a group known for its militancy.

“It’s bad and I’m not happy about it,” Badpa added, referring to the riots. “But the prime minister is talking about this issue (of neglect) right now, and that only started after they burned the cars.”

Some blame the violence on the Swedish government: Administrations in the past two decades have been slowly dismantling the cradle-to-grave welfare benefit system known as the “Swedish model.” As a result, rising income inequality is hitting immigrant populations hard — unemployment is running at 16% among residents of foreign origin but only 7% for the general population.

Do you buy the notion that what is driving the rioters is that there’s nothing to do and that they don’t have jobs? It is a decidedly deterministic outlook that posits that idea and it fails to recognize the psychic wounds inflicted by European society on Muslims — real or imagined.

Most Muslim immigrants come from majority Muslim societies. They see “blaspheming” all around them, not to mention the affront that a secular society gives to pious Muslims. If there is a cause of the rioting — and beyond troublemaking and incoherent rage there doesn’t seem to be one — it is that Muslims have made themselves an island, refusing to assimilate because the European model demands that they subsume their culture and beliefs while accepting the homogeneous nature of the country in which they have chosen to live.

The authorities think that treating the symptoms of the unrest will cure the patient. Instead, it will only mask the true source of the disease;  a cultural virus attacking secular Europe that seeks to change the very nature of traditional societies, overwriting the structures that have endured for hundreds of years and replacing them with alien DNA.

There is no solution to this problem except waiting a few decades until Muslim become a majority in most of the countries of Europe. But in the meantime, we can expect many more examples of Muslim rage like we are seeing in Sweden today.

The reason some people despise political correctness is because ignoring reality for temporary feel-good ego massages only guarantees a worse bruising somewhere down the road.

Liberals look at the Third World and simply don't see it; not like normal people at any rate. To a liberal, there is no such thing as failure or stupid, particularly if that culture is non-white.

The reality that any child can see is that the Third World can't compete with the West. Why isn't important. The truth is so pervasive from India to Guatemala to Egypt to Indonesia, what does it matter? It's a fact. One thing's for sure, it sure as hell isn't because some fork lift driver in Kansas is a racist.

Moving large populations of such people into the West is a guarantee they will fail. If this were not so they'd be developing fractal geometry and string theory themselves; they are not. The average train car in a Third World country looks like it was dropped from 100 ft. Buses are often not much better. I once tried to slide close a window in a bus in Mexico when it started raining and the whole long piece came out from the frame.

Add to that the alternative to failure liberals preach day and night: racism. My racism. My failure. The self-contradictory irony there is that liberals posit a failure of a value system on one hand while they deny it on the other. That's because liberals parse everything by identity. There is no logic or reason to their thinking, only skin.

Ask yourself what the Las Vegas odds are that the massively similar medieval nations in the Third World and their emigre populaces all experience a remarkably similar degree of failure based on one single cause: white racism.

Again, even while liberals triumphantly announce ethnic Europeans are a minority globally and that racism is only a majority possibility, they again babble the exact opposite out of the other side of their mouths.

Every failure in the world from Egypt to Malaysia to Bolivia is laid at my doorstep. I knew it was BS the first time I ever heard the word politically correct, probably 20 years ago when some old bag sued Mc's cuz she failed to hold a flimsy cup of scalding coffee between her legs and refused to see that she was her own explanation for failure.

My father once told me self-pity is one of the single most destructive acts for a human being to indulge in. The Third World, parsed through liberal eyes, is one vast self-pity party.

In Rio de Janeiro, a place I've spent a lot of time, the number of buses burnt every year was unbelievable; something like 100 to 200 a year. Where I'm from, a large city in America, the count throughout my entire life is zero. There's your political correctness. Burn the frickin' place down, don't pick up trash, let 700 shanties be built until you have to launch Operation Normandy Invasion just to secure the route from Rio's airport to the city during the Olympics. You'd think it was Patton and the Germans.

Multiply that by 10,000 then STFU and stay home and make your countries places worth living in. Fight and die if you must, but leave me the hell alone. We're full up. And shove your whining about racism too.

This is all too much BULLSH. Are they supposed to be looked as a diaspora - forced to flee their own homelands and coerced to come to Europe? Puhleez! So they arrive, take the free goodies and then, what? Oh yeah, realize that their primitive isolationist society can't function with the normal world so they grow bitter waiting to die with nothing to lose. They do what insecure envious people do - pass judgment and blame everyone and remain willfully blind about the fatal flaws of their religion and their fascist society.

People better qualified than I am have made predictions concerning the western European populations of Muslim immigrants, with respect to their behaviors as they reach certain numbers and percentages of the total population of the host nation. It is predicted that riots and violence directed against non-muslims will happen after the muslim population reaches a certain critical mass.

All is proceeding as has been foreseen.

If Switzerland becomes affected by its muslim population's violence, then I predict that we here will experience a similar outcome. Switzerland is one of the few armed societies in Europe and I would expect the Swiss to intervene in muslim led rioting from within the civilian cohort that possesses rifles at home.

Here, in the US, the urban centers are mostly disarmed by the dishonesty and fear of the lefty politicians who run them. Once outside the cities, though, there is still at least one rifle for each blade of grass and they are owned by people who will probably defend themselves from the sort of unpleasantness that our Swedish cousins have allowed to develop.

Political correctness is covering up the failure of multiculturalism as we see in the USA today article where they cannot even mutter the words Muslim or Islam.

This article http://mywtfblog.com/2013/05/when-pc-and-mc-collide/
describes how the confidence of Islamists is rising in Europe because of the political correctness of leaders and the media.

In the US, we are only 10 years behind where Europe is now.

So where does this all end? Do they get their own "West Bank?" Do they get their own "Gaza Strip?" Do Muslims in Europe get their own "Country-stan?" When push comes to shove Europe has a nasty fascist bent to it. Will this lead to round-ups and forced sterilization of all Muslims? Where does it end? Can civil societies tolerate this much violence and destruction from Muslims? Liberals have created yet another disaster for humanity.

The riots in Stockholm ( and now and then in other places with Muslim populations ) are consequences of appeasment politics, irresponsible immigration politics and a media that dare/does´t want to not report on the negative impacts of Muslim immigration. In a way it´s good that these riots happen. I think this country needs a wakeup call, an eyeopener. And if that savage butchery in London isn´t an eyeopener as well, what is ? The bad things that happens often have a common denominator . I listened to Obamas "terrorspeech" and it´s clear that he wants the Americans to love the Muslims more, you should "reach out to the Muslim communities", "the Muslims are a fundamental part of the American society". It is alarming that a great country like the US, with strong Christian and Western values, has a leader who want to go down that appeasment road. It is a losing strategy, for you and for us.

Of course it is going to spread. Look at the calendar. We are coming up on summer, and in France it is Car-b-que season. The inhabitants of the [italics] Zones Urbain Sensibiles [/italics] or Sensitive Urban Zones in France where French law does not effectively run [who share a certain characteristic with the rioting "immigrants" in Sweden, the inhabitants of the "Sharia Triangle" in the Hague (Schilderswijk neighborhood), and the killers of Drummer Lee Rigby in London ... they are all of the Religion-that-must-not-be-named; i.e MUSLIM] will be out burning cars, buildings, and threatening non-Muslims throughout France like they have every year for over a decade.

The standard response in France and the Netherlands is denial. In Britain they are arresting those who comment negatively online, and in Sweden they will pay Danegeld to the rioters through more government handouts.

Been there, done that, and it will continue until it can't.

Le Parisien révèle sur son site qu'un militaire en mission vigipirate a été poignardé avec un cutter à la gorge, à La Défense (Hauts-de-Seine), aujourd'hui en fin d'après-midi.

Le militaire était en tenue, et l'agression a eu lieu devant le magasin Virgin. Le militaire a été soigné dans un local de la RATP. Selon le journal, l'agresseur présumé est en fuite.

Les jours du soldat ne sont pas en danger.

I blame the Swedish government.

Swedes believe it is the duty of the government to take care of them from birth to death; keep them safe, healthy, and happy. Obviously, these rioters are unhappy about something, therefore the government has failed in it's duty. The government must do whatever it takes to remedy that situation. Give them jobs, even if it is just make-work; pay them wages that will enable them to live in the upper-middle class, even if they have no job skills. Allow them to live by their religious values, even if that imposes on other Swedes' rights. That might make other Swedes unhappy, but hey, that's multiculturalism for you.
