Political violence is on the rise in the United States.
Unhinged far-left acts of terror are being excused or ignored by the so-called mainstream media.
But one brewing violent conflict could spell doom for the United States.
Often times, what happens in Europe eventually makes its way to America.
That should be deeply concerning for Americans because Europe is experiencing serious social upheaval with no clear end in sight.
One of the countries entangled in conflict is Sweden.
Socialists like Bernie Sanders and his followers always prop-up some socialist “paradise” country as an exemplar, then quietly move on to another when it collapses.
Sanders defended the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War and even honeymooned there at the time.
He also defended Fidel Castro in Cuba and Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.
Sanders has now moved onto Sweden as his model for socialism even though government officials in the country reject that label.
The biggest problem facing Sweden right now is the rapid influx of migrants from the Middle East and North Africa.
Leif Östling, a Swedish businessman and former CEO of trucking company Scalia, said in an interview that the country took in too many migrants too quickly.
“We’ve taken in far too many people from outside,” Östling said.
Instead of bringing migrants in at a reasonable pace and properly assimilating them, Sweden and other European countries brought in over 100,000 people all at once who didn’t speak the language, know the culture, and didn’t have a place in a limited job market.
These factors, combined with Western countries having an identity crisis and disparaging their own culture, have created a tinder box that’s about to set fire.
Migrants with limited economic opportunities—who have also been told by Islamists and multiculturalists to not assimilate to Swedish culture—have established “no go” zones that are incredibly hostile to outsiders.
Even police officers, social service workers, and journalists have been run out of these areas.
As a result of this rising tension, Sweden (outside of the countries embroiled in war) has become the grenade capital of the world.
Other violent crimes have skyrocketed as well, yet the press is reluctant to report them for fear of being labeled Islamophobic or xenophobic or any other epithet used by the left to shut down honest debate.
The developments in Sweden are important for Americans because leftists in the United States are actively calling for open borders.
The U.S. is already incredibly generous with immigration, taking in 1 million legally each year and thousands more in refugees.
That doesn’t even account for the thousands that come in illegally each year and remain in the country. In fact, a study conducted by Yale estimates over 20 million illegal aliens are living in the U.S.
The key to immigration is bringing people in at a reasonable rate so they can be assimilated properly.
But the left wants to allow everyone in and don’t want them to assimilate because they think American culture is inherently bad.
This is a recipe for disaster, which is why growing civil tension cannot be ignored.
