Politico Criticizes Swedish Conservatives for Opposition to Islamic Child Marriage

Published

on

A popular political news outlet is unwilling to side with conservatives under any circumstance, even if the circumstance is forced child marriage.

“A tug-of-war between the ruling Social Democrat-Green Party coalition and the opposition over the government’s role in managing or eradicating the practice — which predominantly affects young girls, and in some cases boys, from immigrant backgrounds — is emblematic of a broader struggle to find a balance between efforts to integrate a large number of new immigrants and preserve a Swedish way of life,” wrote Politico.

The avowedly left wing website said that right wingers have “seized on the issue” to climb in the polls.

“In a video posted on the [“far-right” Sweden Democrats] Facebook page, leader Jimmie Åkesson hit out at the government, saying: ‘I don’t know what there is to think about. It is, frankly, totally sick that one can’t just simply say no to something as bizarre as grown men having the right to marry children.'”

Right now, Sweden tolerates among migrants what would be considered statutory rape in the United States, given that child marriage is part of Islamic culture.

“While we insist that Sweden protects children’s rights and that we promote a child-centered approach to children’s welfare, we have allowed children of foreign backgrounds to live as married women with older men,” said Juno Blom, candidate for parliament for the opposition right-wing Liberal Party.

Though Sweden has banned marriages where one of the parties is underage, they still recognize such marriages if they are carried out abroad.

“The government has come under pressure to close that legal loophole and invalidate all marriages that involve minors,” wrote Politico. “But it declined to vote for a proposal — put forward by parliament’s committee on civil affairs this spring — that would do so, saying it was formulating its own plan to tighten existing laws.”

British Government FURIOUS With China, Believe They Could Have 40 TIMES As Many Coronavirus Cases As Reported

The UK believes China could be lying big.

Published

on

High-ranking British governmental officials are reportedly furious with China’s handling of the coronavirus, believing that the nation’s communist government severely understated the severity of the viral epidemic and may be lying about its official count of diagnoses by an order of 40.

Reporting from the Daily Mail indicates that British officials believe China is set to face a “reckoning” over their handling of the virus, and faces the prospect of becoming a “pariah state” for its role in allowing coronavirus to spread.

British government figures are far from the only disease spectators who are extremely suspicious of China’s official disease diagnosis count and fatality rate. Italy surpassed China’s admitted death count last week, suggesting that China managed to contain the entirely novel disease to a greater extent, despite the virus being entirely in nature when first surfacing in the nation’s Hubei province. That is, if China’s claim of incurring 3,300 deaths can be trusted.

Boris Johnson, the UK’s Prime Minister, has been personally diagnosed with the coronavirus. He’s been forced to oversee British government response to the epidemic from quarantine. Johnson’s advisors have reportedly suggested that China’s coronavirus casualty and diagnosis statistics have been ‘downplayed by a factor of 15 to 40 times.

If such an estimate were to prove accurate, it would mean that China has actually incurred almost 50,000 deaths from the rapidly spreading viral disease. At most, more than 150,000 people could’ve died from coronavirus.

The outbreak of the virus has been traced with accuracy to a wet food market in Wuhan, China. China has refused to decisively ban the wild animal trade, despite a plethora of evidence that suggests such markets’ suspicious health and sanitation practices enabled the virus to cross from infecting animals such as bats and pangolins to humans.

Suspicion of China appears to be far from solely an American political phenomenon as the world struggles to contain the most severe global health pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu.
