Andrew Bolt wonders if these ‘social difficulties’ are caused byÂ Presbyterians…..
Swedish journalists are just as prone to self-censorship as our own:
The police station in MalmÃ¶ district RosengÃ¥rd, in the south of Sweden, was fired upon early Saturday morning…. RosengÃ¥rd, centrally located in MalmÃ¶, is an area commonly associated withÂ social difficulties, and has been the place of several riots and clashes between local youths and authorities in recent years.
The French, too, are prone to the euphemism “youths”.Â But “social difficulties” is a new one.
Mark Steyn yellsÂ “Voldemort Alert”
A minor news item fromÂ Sweden:
The police station in MalmÃ¶ district RosengÃ¥rd, in the south of Sweden, was fired upon early Saturday morning.
Oh, my! Sweden? Any more details?
“At 4:29 a.m. police on location alerted us about the gunshots,” Hanna Berndtsson, SkÃ¥ne police information officer, told the TT news agency.
…a forensic investigation squad is on location to find out what happened.Thus far the forensic investigation has revealed that live ammunition was used in the shooting, and therefore an attempted murder probe has been initiated…
Yeah, yeah, gotcha. What else?
RosengÃ¥rd, centrally located in MalmÃ¶, is an area commonly associated with social difficulties, and has been the place of several riots and clashes between local youths and authorities in recent years.
Ah. “Social difficulties” and “youths”.
I was in RosengÃ¥rd last fall.Â The salient point about RosengÃ¥rd is that it’s overwhelminglyÂ Muslim, andÂ when it comes to “youths” I mean that very literally: Indeed, during my twilight perambulation, I had something of a tense encounter with “youths” on the gangwalk of one of theÂ unlovely housing projects. And by “Muslim”Â I mean a fierce self-segregating Islam, so that female immigrants from Muslim nations where women go uncovered are obliged to adopt the veil once they get to Sweden, of all places.
Yet the word “Muslim” appears nowhere in the report. Perhaps news stories could come with simultaneous signing for the multiculturally impaired.
Still, at least, asÂ Megan Seaward, 18, would say, the reporter wasn’t “inappropriate” or “offensive”. And that’s what counts, right?
In other news:
No Muslim or Islam to see here, move on, infidel:
A 20 year-old Swedish woman was murdered on the night between Friday and Saturday, in the Spanish city Fuengirola.
Another woman has been injured.Â According to Spanish newspaper Diario Sur, the police have arrested a 30 year-old Â (Musel-)man, suspected of the murder.
The man is reported to be a Spanish resident, and was staying at the same hotel as the Swedish women when the crime occurred.
Several Spanish newspapers have reported that the suspect broke into their hotel room, tried to molest them sexually, and then attacked them with a large kitchen knife when the women attempted to stop him. (source)
