If social programs promote harmony, explain the riots in Sweden

Now come riots in Sweden, which present a conundrum for any thinking liberal. Sweden is the gleaming polity for all those who claim that socialist societies represented the humanitarian ideal of social, political, and economic policies. Sweden is a society where people are encouraged to engage in free competition, but the product of their abilities is redistributed to the needs of others through a tax structure that takes 70% of an average worker’s income.

With its welcoming and compassionate immigration policy and its expansive welfare system, Sweden seems to be a model for the welfare state programs others in the West proposed as a deterrent to riots and a means for the creation of a harmonious and sensitive society. For liberals, watching a riot in Sweden is like seeing a porn theater open at Disneyland.

Because, they just didn’t implement enough socialism and teach enough “tolerance” in the school system. /sarc

Actually, it’s multi-culturism that is the real success story in the third world countries of the EU.

Getting tougher for Americans to go after Sweden for socialism...when we have BOTH major parties working to give Illegal Aliens (including many potential Islamic Terrorists) a $6 Trillion amnesty bill....all this while Islamic Terrorists (already on government programs) blew up the Boston Marathon

Its like calling another girl a “slut” because she slept with the boy you plan on sleeping with

They’re just upset by an anti-Islamic movie that Hillary had nothing to do with.

The warm and fuzzy version of "work shall set you free".

And who is rioting? The guys getting the free stuff, it should be the guys who are doing all the work.

Many years ago, in this country, it was common for legislators to argue that only those immigrants who shared a common relgion or culture should be able to emigrate here. The Leftards, in their hatred of Western civilization and America, rejected sensibility on the grounds that it was ‘discriminatory’. Yes, IT WAS, FOR GOOD REASON.

Most of the moslems live in Scania ~ which used to be part of Denmark but was absorbed back in the days of the Swedish Empire.

For some obscure reason the Swedes hung onto the place but in recent decades it's turned into one of those outdoor slums Europe is so famous for fostering.

There is no way those people living there are integrated or assimilated, nor will they ever be. That doesn't happen unless you actually have some population adjustments, but if you're not prepared for them it's foolish to import more of that kind.

You have to have a mental problem to want to do that.

It is absolutely impossible to harmonize Islam with any other form of government, absolute or otherwise.
