Sweden investigates soaring number of rapes as politicians demand to know if it is linked to migration

Sweden has launched an investigation into the soaring number of rapes after it emerged that one in 24 women have fallen victim to a sexual offence.

The Swedish Crime Survey found that 4.1 per cent of women had experienced some form of sexual offence between 2012 and 2016.

The country’s Moderate Party has now demanded to know if the alarming figures are linked to migration after a probe was launched to find out the reason for the spike in incidents.

    Politicians demanded to know if the rape epidemic is linked to “migrants”. Seriously?

      Pathetic, isn’t it? But at least they “dared” to voice the unspeakable, horrible, racist, islamophobic, question. Progress of a sort (perhaps).

        What they really want to know is who dared link rape to migrants, so they know who to punish and un-personate.

    • It’s Sweden.

      Swedish politicians say, “Duh?” Ignoramuses!

    It doesn’t take rocket science to figure that one out.

      No. But it takes integrity and honesty.

    How is it possible for an entire party to be this stupid?

      Fifty years of “Progressive Education”. We’re no different. If you want to see collective stupidity and insanity, go read a comment thread at the CBC.

        Heh, thanks but I’d rather stick pins in my eyes!

  • Hard Little Machine

    Nope. It’s not related to anything. Just ignore it. Allahu Akbar.

    Was Sweden gaining the well-known designation as the “Rape Capital of Europe” their first clue?

      Bunch of heliocentrist bigots.

    How would jihadists manage without the west’s political correctness to cover up for them?

    The “investigation” will probably consist of trying to figure out a way to cover up the truth.

    Wow! Sweden is starting to have a real problem with islamophobia. I wonder if it has anything to do with all the totalitarian supremacist muslims who are turning their country into a cesspit?
