State Media Paints Stockholm Terrorist as Potential Victim of Poverty in Uzbekistan

Sveriges Television (SVT) Russia and central Asia correspondent Elin Jönsson wrote on Saturday that while authorities “know nothing yet about the motive” for the attack, “many young people in Uzbekistan are poor, and become easy prey for Islamist organisations.”

Describing Uzbekistan as “extremely oppressive”,  the SVT correspondent asserted that the policies of former Soviet republics to limit religious practice “led to a radicalization of many Muslims.

However, according to Dagens Nyheter, the suspect traveled to Sweden to make money, and was described as a ‘typical family man’ who ‘worked hard to make money for the family.’

    As opposed to being an islamic shit hole thereby condemning its citizens to a life of intellectual incompetence, poverty and drudgery.

    There are a billion poverty stricken Mohammedans out there. If every one of them is entitled to slaughter 4 Swedes, it won’t be long before there are no Swedes left.

    Bullshit. An apple never falls far from the tree. For a man like me, I was raised from birth to be proud of the nation of my forefathers, Canada and before that Scotland (Britain). I could no more turn on my country than I could cut off my hand. It’s a part of me and I of it. These newcomers not all but many, to them these Western nations mean nothing but “”What can I get out of it?”” Their first love is the country they came from. Can’t really blame people for feeling like that. My folks have been in Canada a very long time. I’m in my mid 40s and all but one of my 2x great grandparents were born here. It would be interesting to see what makes native born westerners turn to Islamic radicalism. My guess would be a separation from ones parents and not receiving the passing on of ones families history so the vacuum must be filled. As for the newcomers, much as they profess to love Canada they still consider themselves something else. A hyphenated Canadaian. However in my case that something else was 2 centuries ago and was one of the main people to make Canada what it is. What is really dangerous is importing so many newcomers so fast who have no sense or attachment to this nation Canada’s history and values. The same is true of any Western state that practices multiculturalism. Why can’t those we elect to lead us, realize this simple truth?

    Sweden’s elites seems quite comfortable turning to the racism of low expectations in explaining all their difficulties caused by idiotic virtue signaling.
