When President Trump spoke truths about the devastating consequences of Muslim immigration in Sweden, he was excoriated by Swedish politicians and the enemedia. They denied reality, but they could not avoid the consequences of denying reality.

Their lies and deceptions are exposed every day now (just scroll here).

Sweden is disintegrating before our very eyes. The Islamic conquest of Sweden continues at a furious pace. No-go zones, lawlessness and violence are the order of the day.

Swedish minister is forced to apologise for falsely claiming the number of sex attacks in the country is decreasing after Nigel Farage called Malmo ‘the rape capital of Europe’

  • Ylva Johansson insisted the number of rapes was ‘going down and going down’
  • Comment made after Nigel Farage said that Malmo was ‘rape capital of Europe’
  • Integration minister later acknowledged sex attack numbers were ‘on the rise’
  • By Julian Robinson for MailOnline, 6 March 2017

A Swedish minister has admitted she was wrong after claiming the number of sex attacks in the country had decreased.

Integration minister Ylva Johansson claimed in a television interview that the number of rapes in Sweden was ‘going down, and going down, and going down’.

The remarks came after former UKIP leader Nigel Farage claimed last month that the city of Malmo was ‘the rape capital of Europe due to EU migrant policies.’

But days later it emerged that, despite a 12 per cent dip in 2015, the number of sex attacks had in fact climbed 13 per cent in 2016.

Johansson acknowledged her error in a statement to the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.

‘I based my answer on information that I had at the time, that the number of reports of rapes went down in 2015.

‘It was wrong of me to speak of a development that was only based on one year. The preliminary figures for 2016 unfortunately show that the figures are on the rise. It’s important to be correct, of course.’

Johansson had earlier claimed that the number of rapes in Sweden was falling as she defended the country’s immigration policy in an interview with the BBC.

When asked about the impact of granting residency to 150,000 refugees last year, she insisted: ‘We cannot see a connection between crime and immigration.’

Asked specifically about sex attacks and Farage’s comments, she added: ‘When we make surveys about if any woman has been… if there has been a rape towards her or sexual harassment, we can see that the level is going down, and going down and going down.’

According to The Local, the number of reported rapes has gone up from 4,208 in 2006 to 6,560 in 2016.

But it cites the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention as saying that this may have been the result of legislative changes which broadened the definition of rape.
