Liberals Flee Migrant Crisis They Created

As Sweden becomes rapidly more multi-cultural, middle class liberals who claim to support immigration are becoming ‘white flight’ refugees themselves.

Take the small, picturesque town of Filipstad (population 10,000), for example. Swedish television recently made a documentary about the town. In just six years, 640 native Swedes left the town, and 963 foreign-born people moved into the town.

Those leaving are people of working age (20-64), while most of the newcomers are unemployed, throwing the town into financial crisis.

"In Filipstad, there are around 750 adults from Syria, Somalia, Eritrea, Afghanistan and Iraq.... In this group, unemployment and dependency are very high, while education levels are very low. This group runs the risk of ending in an eternal exclusion that is already heavily burdening the municipal economy."

"[They] are maybe too old and illiterate, or have a very low educational level. We must accept that there will be some people who will need the support of society for their livelihood."

As street violence and assaults on women rocket, well-to-do liberal Swedes are the main ones moving away.

On August 31, Aftonbladet ran a story about Emma Zetterholm, who chose to leave Malmö after living in the city for 18 years. "I still love Malmö but my family and I cannot live here" she told the newspaper. "The violence crept closer and closer to me, my relatives, friends and colleagues."

Zetterholm explains that she still kept trying to convince herself that it was not that dangerous. She says it feels "awful" to be part of a trend where "well-educated, white middle class flee problematic areas."

"As a parent, you become angry, desperate...The result is that those who can, and can afford it, move. From Uppsala or Saltsjö Boo. To a quieter part of the country or abroad. Those who do not have the same opportunities [to move] remain where they are. It's devastating..."
