When I saw this headline I thought it was a joke, a parody. I should have realized that Progressive ideology is beyond parody.
I assume the next time an IslamoNazi in Sweden attacks a Jew, the solution will be obvious: get rid of the Jews.
It’s hard to imagine how anyone with a reasonably functioning brain could conclude that banning cars is the solution to vehicular jihad like the attack that left four dead in Stockholm last Friday, but a veteran Swedish journalist has done just that.
Breitbart reports that Aftonbladet editorialist Eva Franchell has declared in a recent op-ed that cars, not unfettered Middle Eastern immigration or Islamic terrorists, are the problem that must be addressed in order to prevent further such atrocities.
Franchell asserts that cars are “effective murder machines” that “must simply be removed from city centres and places where people gather, if people are to be protected in future.”
Vehicles are “easy to steal, and so nothing has been able to stop their advance,” she writes. “It just isn’t reasonable that a big truck can be driven right into one of Stockholm’s busiest streets on a Friday afternoon right before Easter.”
Only a Swedish liberal could seriously propose the inane idea that the way to curb terrorism is to eliminate anything that could possibly be used as an instrument of violence, rather than, say, target the people and the ideology behind the terrorism.
