In a report on the state of crime problems plaguing Sweden, Katie Hopkins reported that pepper spray was illegal, because your rapist might be hurt. From the dailymail.co.uk:
I followed up on the riots last week. Not a single arrest was made.
After Peter's Facebook post, in which he drew attention to the volume of crimes allegedly perpetrated by migrants, he was branded a racist, a Nazi, a xenophobe
I spoke to residents who know burglaries will not be attended, rapes not prosecuted, car fires accepted with a shrug, pepper spray banned in case your rapist is hurt.
The last assertion seemed surreal. Internet searches turned up the incident that Hopkins was referring to. From the washingtontimes.com:
The teenager told police Wednesday evening that she was sexually assaulted by a dark-skinned English-speaking man near a migrant asylum center in central Sønderborg. She said the man knocked her to the ground and tried to undress her before she was able to fight him off with her pepper spray, which is illegal in Denmark, The Local reported.
“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told the Danish channel TV Syd.
This is what happens when a society's assumptions about reality (or at least those of the people in power) are false. In Hopkin's article, this gem stands out. She is interviewing Mattias Karlsson, leader of Swedens most popular opposition party. He is asked why the people in power refuse to see the problems. From the dailymail.com:
He explained that to accept there is a problem would mean accepting nearly 80 years of liberal thinking was wrong. That multiculturalism doesn't work, that mass immigration does not lead to integration, that Sweden has made a big mistake.
This is classic cognitive dissonance by the Swedish politicians currently in power. When reality disagrees with your core concepts of what reality should be, people try to ignore the reality. They work hard to silence others who talk about reality, because to acknowlege reality is extremely painful to them. For Swedish politicians in power, to acknowledge reality is to admit that their entire philosophy is a farce; that they have been the authors of severe evil; that they have done exactly the opposite of what they claim they were doing.
Reality always wins, one way or another. Either the Swedish Democrats will win at the ballot box, or the problems will continue to get worse.
All over the Western world, false political constructs about reality are being toppled. Some of those constructs:
People are the same all over the world.
People are basically good.
People's motivations are all, at base, economic.
The use of force is always wrong.
War is never legitimate.
