EVERYTHING these days is Trump’s fault…

If you’re a Leftist and there’s a problem ANYWHERE in the world – you can bet the culprit was Donald J. Trump.

If there’s an earthquake in Burma…

Trump’s fault.

If somebody stubs their toe on the end table on the other side of the world…

Trump’s fault.

And Sweden’s rising problems with crime, assaults, and murders in some of their biggest cities ISN’T due to the fact that they had a MASSIVE influx of immigrants from Syria and Afghanistan…

It’s because of Trump.

Well, Trump AND Russia – according to The New York Times.

Is it any wonder why Trump calls them “failing”? It may not be because their business is going under but because they fail at finding actual facts and reporting the TRUTH…

And lately, they’ve been failing BIG time.

Ignoring Facts And Pointing Fingers

How can these problems be Trump’s fault?

Well, because it’s easier to point your finger at the boogeyman of the moment rather than look at the facts that are staring you right in the face…

And, for the record, the NYT seems to ignore facts A LOT.

For instance, in 2015, Sweden took in almost 165,000 asylum-seekers from Syria, Afghanistan and a few other neighboring countries – mostly countries dominated by Islam.

Now, for Sweden, taking in 165K people in a year would be the equivalent to America taking in over 5 million.

Since 2015, incidents of crime have SOARED in the Scandinavian country…

Sex crimes saw the biggest increase. Rapes and other sexual offenses have jumped ALARMINGLY – going from just over 2% in 2014 up to 24% in 2018.

That’s incredible…

And because Trump brought attention to this uptick in violence and crime in Sweden in 2017 – his rhetoric is the reason that rates are CONTINUING to rise as The New York Times tries to tie the ALREADY rising rates to his comments.

They claim his comments were “misinformation” as well as xenophobic and anti-immigration dog whistles.

What’d he say?

Why Sweden’s Crime Rates Are TRUMP’S Fault

While talking about the problems of immigration, he said at a rally, “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden.… They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”

Was he wrong?

Nope.

Sweden’s woes DIDN’T start happening until this mass influx – and the crime rates were rising fast before the word “Sweden” ever left his mouth.

As much as rapes and sexual assaults have increased in Sweden, the increase in murders makes that jump look like a small step. According to Politico, “gang-related gun murders, now mainly a phenomenon among men with immigrant backgrounds … increased from 4 per year in the early 1990s to around 40 last year.… Social unrest, with car torchings, attacks on first responders, and even riots, is a recurring phenomenon. Shootings in the country have become so common that they don’t make top headlines anymore unless they are spectacular or lead to fatalities.”

Sweden has “no go” zones! Places where cops WON’T go because they’re too afraid of attacks by the immigrants!

And The New York Times wants to blame Trump and Russia for these problems…

“To dig beneath the surface of what is happening in Sweden is to uncover the workings of an international disinformation machine, devoted to the cultivation, provocation, and amplification of far-right, anti-immigrant passions and political forces … most influentially rooted in Vladimir V. Putin’s Russia.”

So…

Maybe somebody should tell the NYT that if America and Russia agree that the problems in Sweden stem from their decision to let so many immigrants at one time, you can bet it’s not “disinformation”. It’s just the facts—after all, Russia and America aren’t the best of friends at the moment.

How do they tie Russia and Trump together for the blame?

Well, they say Russian TV crews showed up in Sweden to report on the problem at the SAME time as Trump’s “xenophobic” comments. “It was right around that time … that Russian television crews showed up, offering to pay immigrant youths ‘to make trouble’ in front of the cameras.”

Wow…

Trump isn’t to blame for Sweden’s rising crime rates…

Russian isn’t to blame for Sweden’s rising crime rates…

SWEDEN is responsible for Sweden’s rising crime rates.

Trying to point the finger at ANYBODY else is just dishonest and disingenuous…

But that’s par for the NYT’s course, isn’t it?
