In a rape capital of the world, Sweden, what started out as an uprising by hashtag activists on social media with the popular #Metoo, has turned into potential legislation designed to protect women from being raped.
Sweden deputy prime minister and outspoken feminist, Isabella Lövin, said the social media #metoo campaign “showed that there is a need for the new legislation”.
Seeing a path to promote social justice, the mostly feminist legislature in Sweden has led the charge to pursue consent forms, even though the consent movement has shown no progress toward decreasing rape over the last two years.

Rape statistics show an alarming trend. #MeToo hashtag activists have been very successful this month in getting their hashtag to influence policy, but there doesn’t seem to be much logic behind doubling down on consent as an antidote to sexual crimes.
Rape statistics for 2016 – Sweden vs Poland.
– 10 million inhabitants.
– 6 715 rapes
– 11% successfully cleared up.
– 40 million inhabitants.
– 1 383 rapes.
– 80% successfully cleared up.
Seems like Sweden is not functioning properly.

According to the AP, “Sweden is moving to change its rape law in a proposal that would require people to get explicit consent before sexual contact.”
So Feminist dominated Sweden plans to stop rape with the same logic that opponents of guns plan to stop crime. Stop the gun crime by legislating background checks, and stop the rape by requiring consent forms.
Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said his coalition has been preparing this “historic reform” since taking power in 2014.
On Twitter, a popular global social media platform, the #Metoo movement has taken on a sort of drinking game quality.
Name and rate the apologies by sexual harassers on remorse on scale of 1 – 10 (where 10 = true pain that they did it; 5 = regret; 1 = lame excuse w indignance that people are dwelling on it). @maddow @cnnbrk @nytopinion #harassment #apology #MeToo @MeTooCenter

However, there are many global members of the movement who consider this a top concern for global politics.
In collaboration with the United States hashtag activists, the #MeToo movement was named Time Magazine’s person of the year early in December and has been a long time in the making according to this website.
“The transformational movement founded by Tarana Burke ten years ago receives magazine’s highest honor for encouraging millions to speak out about sexual violence and harassment.”
Not everyone is happy with the progress the movement is making.
Opponents of the Hashtag activists #MeToo campaign in Sweden are feeling pressured.
In this article,”45 percent of Swedish men think that my too-call is wholly or partly exaggerated, according to a survey from Novus”. Respondents even called it a witch hunt for men. Even 30% of women did not agree with the #MeToo focus.
The global #MeToo movement, which has set its sights on “radical community” and “disrupting systems”, prides itself on “using the idea of empowerment through empathy”, according to the organizer, Tarana Burke.
Talking about her future #MeToo community organizing ideas:
“Foundations have to think outside the box and maybe expand past the usual suspects that get all of the funding and start thinking about how to reach into communities and support community healing on a more local level,” Tarana Burke said in an interview with The Chronicle.
Least anyone thinks that the community organizer and her group is focused only on consent forms in Sweden and forcing apologies from Hollywood directors, look no further than the organizers own Twitter account:
It also needs to be said that Black women, like my mentor Faya Rose Toure, were on the ground organizing against Moore BEFORE the allegations bc he is a racist, sexist, homophobic, extremist mess of a candidate and they knew he would be a terrible senator. #TrustBlackWomen

Journalist Andy Ngo is Forced to Leave the U.S. After Credible Death Threats From ANTIFA
Ngo has fled the country.
Journalist Andy Ngo has been forced to leave the United States after enduring credible death threats from ANTIFA domestic terrorists over the course of many months.
Ngo made the shocking announcement that he has relocated to London during a recent appearance on Sky News. He explained how ANTIFA’s reign of terror forced him to leave his home of Portland, Ore. and then the country to protect his safety.
“For a number of months now there’s just been increasing threats of violence against me, promises by Antifa extremists to kill me,” Ngo said about his ordeal.
The full Sky News interview can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on how ANTIFA targeted Ngo in the past with violence in an attempt to intimidate him and prevent him from telling the truth about the domestic terror organization:
A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.
“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally,” he said on Twitter. “They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”
He posted several screenshots from a Facebook event – which of course portrayed the violent mob as the victims of violence themselves – and screenshots from a local Antifa website promoting the event.
“Oregon City Proud Boy [redacted] targets the Portland DSA in a Facebook thread encouraging other members of the hate group to participate in the June 29 assault on Portland. Local far-right Islamophobic journalist Andy Ngo – who participated in the Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys attack on Cedar Riot on May 1, 2019, and who was the first to publicly promote the June 29 Proud Boys event – also targets the DSA while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community, some of which were gloated about by far-right activists.”
Another part of the post noted that the group was planning on “physical confrontation,” but said that there are “plenty of other ways to help” if one is unable to partake in the violence.
Ngo’s fears were confirmed when he was attacked Saturday.
Ngo’s experiences show that ANTIFA is not an idea, but a dangerous group of terrorist thugs at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution. By standing strong and continuing reporting the truth about ANTIFA, Ngo is refusing to let the terrorists win.
