Reuters: Trump baffles Sweden with crime comment, says it was based on TV report

Recommended Posts

On alt-right sites they've long pushed the idea that muslims are overrunning Western Europe and Sweden especially. Women are being raped, crime is rampant, there are "no go" areas for non-muslims and they claim this is all being covered up by the police, media, and government. This is just another example of the president* reading some internet comment section, or a report based on a internet comment section, and in his twisted warped reality it's suddenly fact.

I've never been to an alt right site. Can you link to the ones you read that push these ideas?

so because you saw some stuff on alt-right sites, that means it didn't happen?

You must be reading the invisible portion of my comment...because nowhere do I state that. It may or may not be happening, Sweden doesn't appear to be saying it does.

This is actually a pretty decent example of how rumors/memes move through the right wing websites, get picked up by a place like Fox News, and suddenly become fact in the minds of it's viewers.

I'm not defending the Orange idiot, but it's also not the best idea to discount all the problems Europe is having.  I've been over there a number of times the past few years and it's no joke that the cities are filled with young Arab men loitering around, panhandling, selling drugs.  Also lots of women in full burkas.  There's been a disturbing amount of well covered attacks but many individual incidents that don't make news in the US involving murder, rape, etc by immigrants and refugees.

I don't think people really appreciate how effective a tactic these blatant lies are. Especially when those who oppose him talk about it on social media and the like and it spreads like wildfire. The message that Sweden was attacked ends up being placed in many peoples mind.

Hell the left is doing Trump's dirty work on social/traditional media.

As opposed to another example of a coordinated information strategy implemented by the right wing?
