Some politicians’ comments are hilariously idiotic. But when it comes to terrorism, and terrorism always caused by Islamists, such idiotic comments aren’t laughable. Their absurdity and devolution from reality evidences the tragic outcome of denial about terrorism and Islam.
The latest example is Sweden’s Deputy Prime Minister and Green Party co-leader Åsa Romson, who sparked controversy again (who can forget when she compared the Islamist migrant crisis to the Holocaust), this time, on Tuesday’s publicly broadcasted (SVT) morning television show “Gomorron Sverige” (Good Morning Sweden).
Lie #1: Muslims have contributed positively to Sweden.
The Local reports that “She praised her Green Party colleague’s efforts working with Muslim youth associations in Sweden, including his former role leading the non-politically affiliated group Sweden’s Young Muslims.”
By claiming that Muslim youth are positively contributing to society, Romson blatantly omitted the fact that Sweden is the European country that has the highest number of reported sexual assaults by Muslim men against native Swedes– even more than Germany’s ongoing rape crisis. Not to mention its impending economic collapse directly resulting from its failed “immigration” policies.
Lie #2: 9/11 was an accident.
Speaking of a young Muslim man, she said, “He has been chairman of Young Muslims in tough situations like the September 11th accidents.” [emphasis added.]
Viewers were quick to point out that 19 Islamic terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001, accidentally flew into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and crashed United Airlines Flight 93?
Nearly 3,000 people died in the al-Qaida-led 2001 accidents?
Lie #3: Terror doesn’t set the agenda.
When confronted about her outrageous comments, Romson dug in, claiming she “refuses to let terror” set the agenda.
Continuing with this insanity is the fact that Swedish leaders have not been fired for deliberately endangering their own people. Lying is one thing, but lying about the clear and present danger of being invaded is another. Lying about terrorist attacks in the face of ongoing murder and assault committed by one group of young men is delusional and a form of insanity.
Romson obviously should not be in office. Hopefully, she like Sweden’s Islamist Housing Minister, will be forced to resign. But even in his case, it is too little too late.
