Scandinavian Rape, Scandinavian Blinders
frontpagemag.com ^ | 22 August, 2013 | Bruce Bawer

The Norwegian Royal Palace, located in the heart of Oslo, is surrounded by a pleasant little park called Slottsparken. It contains lawns, flower beds, and a rippling brook spanned by a footbridge. Behind the Palace is a small cabin where members of the palace guard spend their down time napping and watching TV.

A less charming feature of the park is that it’s also been the setting of several rapes – no fewer than five of them between June and October of 2011 alone. Things got so bad that the Radisson Hotel – which is just across the street from the park, a minute’s walk from the Palace – began to provide its guests with rape alarms to wear when going out for a stroll.

A newspaper profile of one of the 2011 Slottsparken rapists provides a pretty representative picture of the kind of individual who commits most of these crimes. The perpetrator was a young Iraqi man who came to Norway in 2003 as an asylum seeker. His asylum application was rejected, but – as is standard practice – he was allowed to stay anyway. Three years later, he brutally raped an 18-year-old girl outside Oslo’s City Hall and was sentenced to four years in prison. In 2009, after his release, a deportation order was issued; he challenged it in court; in 2010, he lost his case. Nonetheless, he was again allowed to stay. A year later, still in Oslo, he raped a woman outside the Royal Palace.

A Muslim asylum seeker; a rap sheet; a meaningless deportation order: in today’s Scandinavia, these are among the standard bullet points on many a rapist’s résumé.

Muslims do what their child-raping prophet tells them they can do. The koran is the only book of faith that has rules for rape.

Islam.

1st rape - prison sentance followed by deportation if illegal

2nd rape - penile amputation, prison sentance at hard labor, then deportation if illegal

3rd rape - death penalty

The problem here is among the people themselves. No woman should go alone into such a threat area without being armed, and hopefully with other armed women. Since gun control is pretty widespread, carry knives. The knives are *not* to “protect” themselves, to brandish and drive off attackers, but to aggressively cut attackers.

Only when attackers are injured or even killed does their threat against others end.

So this is the mindset. If you want to use such public areas, you take it upon yourself to severely injure or kill anyone who attacks you. If one, then the other. No other option. Both are your choice.

Unless you want to be raped, possibly injured, and possibly murdered. Choose.

You’re far, far too kind. Almost liberal. 3 violent acts before the preferred solution? I don’t think so.

you have to question the manhood of the rapist, but worse yet, you have to question the manhood of the relatives and friends of the women raped....where the hell are they?

to think that some of these Swedes have distant relatives that were pioneers in America...

The problem is bringing in large numbers of people who don't share the national culture and values. They are not being assimilated. If you stop bringing such people, the problem will subside. Rape used to a rarity in Scandinavia.

Problem is that in most places they have gun control (Europe in general), they also have bans on knives and about every other possible self defense weapon. The mentality is pretty much that self defense is a criminal act.

But Scandinavia’s rising rape figures aren’t the fault of the police. As everyone without blinders on knows by now, this is a story about failed immigration policies and about Islam, which teaches contempt for infidels – especially unveiled women. As Scandinavia’s Muslim population has risen, so have the rape statistics.

The Muslims are not the real problem here. The problem is the traitorous government that brings the Muslims in, provides them a living, and then uses the police and the courts to protect them from angry natives. Who is in charge in Oslo because its obviously not Norwegian people?

And this situation exists in every Western nation where 3rd World invaders are brought in en mass and protected by the government. Who could possibly have that much influence over so many different nations? It certainly not the damn Muslims.

What is destroying the West is internal. It is a contrived ideological commitment to an egalitarian make-believe world, where people are interchangeable; where the unique characteristics of every nation become taboo subjects, even in their own school systems.

In a sense it is a return to the absurd humanist pretensions at Babel, in the Old Testament. But it is a secular attack on the reality of human differences, on those very unique characteristics of individual nations. It is an onslaught that cannot be defended in reason; hence the hissing of nasty sounding epithets at those for whom the Leftist fanatics have no rational answer.

For one aspect of what is destroying us, see Compassion Or Compulsion? For a better understanding of some of the Academic quacks behind it, at least in the U.S., see Myths & Myth Makers In American Higher Education.

meaningless deportation order: in today’s Scandinavia

Sad for a people whose ancestors were the scourge and terror or Europe.

I can not speak for Norway but having spent a lot of time in Sweden, I would say, if you stick the to the areas where ethnic Swedes live, work and play you will feel undeniably safe. Far safer than you feel in most US cities. My hunch is that these rapes happen in Muslim dominated enclaves and areas of the cities. My other hunch is that some liberal Swedish women naively spend time in or around these areas because "they are interesting".

My understanding is that Oslo is different. The Muzzie areas are right in the city center. In some cases, Gronland, they are but blocks from all the govermental buildings.

While I agree it is the underlying problem, it is one that will not be corrected soon or quickly. And until it is, women need to be armed, they *have* to be armed.

I advocate being armed and willing to use arms being taught as an essential part of being female around the entire world. “It is what girls do” should be the only justification needed. Girls and women who discover that one of their number is unarmed should loan her a weapon automatically, as certainly as they would loan her a tampon if one was needed and she didn’t have one.

Even in desperately poor countries, girls and women can get a sharp piece of metal or broken glass. Something. Anything. And part and parcel with having it, they must be prepared to use it to inflict injury. Not optionally.

Imperatively.

Did you read the article? The young girl or young woman or old woman who uses force like a piece of metal, broken glass, or firearm had better hope it works or it could result in far greater injury than rape. The assailant(s) will likely be stronger and also be armed and they will have the element of surprise. From the article:

As Scandinavia’s rape crisis has intensified, new features have emerged. For one thing, it’s spread from the cities to the provinces. There’s been an uptick in kinds of rape – such as gang rape – that were hardly ever seen in Scandinavia before. Today’s rapes, moreover, tend to be more violent than yesterday’s.

Then there’s the increasing number of child rapes – not only the rape of children, but also rape by children. Last November, a 17-year-old Afghan “refugee” brutally raped a 14-year-old girl in Malmø, Sweden. (The prosecutor might have asked for an expulsion order, but chose to request only the usual – short – jail term.) In January, in the same city, a 13-year-old girl was gang-raped by four boys. Two of the culprits were handed over to social services because they were only 13 and thus too young to prosecute; the other two, both 15, were arrested and charged, which outraged their lawyer: how dare the state put children on trial!

Better law enforcement (including profiling) and identifying the source of the problem, primarily Muslim immigrants from the Middle East and Africa are more effective in both the short and long term. Expecting a 12 year old to defend herself against four adult males is a non-starter.

I disagree. The men that are perpetrating this deliberate attack may be IN the West but they are not OF the West.

Sweden's population increased from 9 million to 9.5 million since 2002...
85% of that increase came from immigrants, 81% of which were from Northern Africa, the Middle East, and western Asia...
Rapes have increased in Sweden by 500% since 2002...
40% of the rapes are of girls 15 and under....

And still, the emasculated liberal males of that nation do nothing, while their daughters are raped.

Don’t assume so. Events like this are not isolated, and when women start fighting back, it often results in a moment of hesitation in the attackers, pausing to ponder if their potential victims might be armed.

They usual assumption is that they would just take this into consideration when continuing the attack; but often this is not the case, because the majority of such attackers are cowardly, and if there is even a possibility that they could be harmed, they instead look elsewhere.

Rapists especially, are believed to be trying to use rape to *dominate* their victim. If their intended victim fights back, it makes domination incredibly hard.

Since many more states in the US have become gun friendly, especially with concealed carry, there has been a strong decline in violent crimes. However, some violent criminals have indeed changes their tactics to initiating attacks with a sneak attack to disable or even kill their victim. But this is done out of fear, and it is only a small fraction of the violent criminals out there. When they are taken up, it pretty well ends it.

The bottom line is that right now, girls and women are being violently attacked, raped and even murdered, without struggle. Any resistance they could mount at all would strongly raise the “degree of difficulty” for their attackers, beyond a point many are not willing to go.

It adds a burden to being a violent criminal which should not be considered a bad thing.

This is happening in Scandinavia, not the US. Gun laws are much different. I lived a couple of years in Helsinki.

All of what you suggest is great in theory, but putting it into practice is another matter. What is going on now in Scandinavia is something fairly recent and it can be attributed almost entirely to Muslim immigrants.

The bottom line is that right now, girls and women are being violently attacked, raped and even murdered, without struggle.

Where in the article does it say that the victims were not putting up any resistance?

I should have said “effective struggle”.
