You know my interest in all things Swedish, so I found this comment on LGF very interesting. I'd be interesting in hearing Anders' view. Is Swedish "multi-culturalism" actually this rampant and extreme?

It's not that bad. Actually, it's worse. Teenage girls with immigrant parents are murdered by their father, brother or other close male relative for going out with Swedish boys. This makes them whores and their death is the only way to restore the family's 'honor'.

Many have left their homes and have gone into hiding, their life destroyed. The government has done nothing to help them. The strongly feminist Minister in charge said that they wouldn't act for fear of being accused of taking sides against the immigrant community. Even in the face of atrocities and clear violations of women's rights, politicians simply can't admit there's something wrong with the culture.
