The United States is not the only Western “civilized” nation suffering from an acute case of PC delusion. Take Sweden for example.
On Monday a 57-year-old Swedish woman and her 22-year-old son were reportedly stabbed and killed (one actually beheaded) by an Eritrean Muslim asylum seeker in the nation’s largest branch of IKEA.
Security camera footage from the brutal attack reportedly shows the 35-year-old man grabbing two knives from the kitchenware section just before two shoppers are attacked, according to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.
The Express reports the suspect had met with migration officials just hours before the attack, and was soon to be deported.
Too late for the woman and her son.
But not too late for IKEA to take bold and swift action.The Swedish retailer announced it will, for the time being, no longer sell kitchen knives in the store.
WHEW! Thank goodness. That should take care of the problem of vicious jihad-inspired beheadings from crazed Muslim asylum-seekers. How come WE didn’t think of that first?As Breitbart reports, “Immediately after the attack by the newly arrived migrants, who shared a room in a government asylum shelter and had only arrived in the country less than four weeks before, Swedish police rushed to protect migrant communities from “dark forces in society.”
“Local police across the region have been tasked with taking these measures, to be there for safety purposes for everyone there – those who work there and those who live there,” Vastmanland police spokesman Per Agren said, as quoted by Reuters.
Yes, we really do want to protect those migrant communities from “dark forces in society” like IKEA who have on display $2 bud vases and $3 placemats and little yellow pencils EVERYWHERE that just compel people to do dastardly deeds. We certainly don’t want to upset them.
Let’s just pretend it all never happened, shall we? Seems like that’s exactly what Sweden is trying to do.
After the stabbing on Monday, the store reopened this morning. News Agency AFP reports Swedish police have been “tight-lipped” over what precisely happened in the store, and have refused to confirm various claims in the local and global media, from the identity of the victims and perpetrators, the exact nature of the murder weapons, to whether it was a beheading. There are unconfirmed suggestions in the fringe press that the killers shouted “Allah Akbar” as they struck.
But we really wouldn’t want to bring that up. Neither should we mention that IKEA stores are gun-free zones. And I guess after this last attack, they’re going to be knife-free as well.
No word on whether rolling pins or frying pans will soon be banned as well.
