Swedish seniors get “opportunity” to work longer to pay for young migrants

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Sweden has gone nuts with immigration and those immigrants aren’t paying their way. They’re either on welfare, or are unskilled workers who aren’t exactly adding a lot of value or paying a lot of taxes.

So Sweden’s Minister of Finance, Magdalena Andersson, has announced that they’ll be raising the age of retirement.

Swedes, who have built the country for their whole lives, looking forward to retiring at 65 — well, they can’t. Because they need to work to subsidize young migrants.

I thought the argument for immigration was that it helps pay for our ageing population, but in Sweden, the ageing population has to pay for immigrants.

Here’s the math from one story: "A 2016 report claimed that the one-year cost of the migrant crisis for the Swedish taxpayer could amount to as much as 600 billion Swedish Kronor (£48.3 billion), enough to pay for the national armed forces for the next 14 years. Stockholm University associate professor Jan Tullberg made the calculations based on welfare and housing costs, education costs and other factors.”

48 billion pounds is $82B Canadian. It’s almost hard to believe.

Sweden currently has the second-largest Muslim population in Europe, just behind France, at 8.1%. But if current open door policies continue, that will soon be 30%.

And these aren’t industrious workers or even refugees coming over. They’re welfare shoppers, but Swedes are just too polite to say or do anything.

It would be racist to expect to collect your pension after a lifetime of hard work. What — are you Islamophobic?

Which brings me to Canada.

In this story from a few weeks ago, our immigration minister announced that Canada will bring in one million new migrants in the next three years. Of those, he says two thirds will be economic immigrants who presumably can work, but one third — 300,000 — won’t.

Then, at almost exactly the same time Trudeau was announcing a million more migrants, he said we need to pay billions to ease housing prices.

Higher housing prices. Lower wages. Huge social costs — Trudeau has already said tens of billions will be needed for housing alone.

We’re maybe ten years behind Sweden, or maybe just five. You’re already paying through high taxes, and huge deficits.

How long will it be before your retirement age is raised, too?

NEXT:  Pamela Geller joins me to discuss the event she and I will be at in Toronto tonight, and to talk about the state of the fight against Islamization in Canada.

THEN: Pro-freedom Wilfrid Laurier University Professor David M. Haskell will join me to discuss Lindsay Shepherd and the latest statements on the situation from the university’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Deborah MacLatchy.

And finally, an update on that story from Amsterdam of a Muslim man holding a Palestinian flag smashing up a kosher restaurant. We now know who that man is and that he’s been released on bail.

You may recall that I retracted my criticism of Dutch police for not stepping in to stop him as he smashed up the restaurant. Well, with this new information, I’ll explain why I have to give that criticism to Dutch prosecutors and judges instead.

We need a wall on our US border. We also need an Atlantic Wall of our own to, exactly like the one in 1940’s France.

Just a quick thought. Perhaps Soros and henchmen are racists in this manner: They have a god complex by his own admission. He wants to rule the world just like islam does. But he wants a true under class. In his mind an underclass means non-whites. So if he can bring about “beiging”(as per the cute CBC video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wb55teb1gJ0) so he can dominate the brown, black, beige untermensch. Non-whites and complicit whites who support this nonsense are playing into his hands.

- This is why these migrants are so favored by leftists. They get their votes but the migrants themselves segregate themselves into no-go zones, refuse to learn the language or adopt the culture & remain forever dependent on government (taxpayer) handouts. From their point of view they’re doing their duty of leeching off of the infidels. Canada follows the Swedish model we’ll get the same results.

- Great to see Pamela Geller wasn’t stopped at the border. The enemy isn’t Islam. Islam is the tool that’s being used. The enemy is socialism. Socialists have been marching through the institutions for generations, rotting them from the inside. Generations of students being indoctrinated. Socialist control of most of the mainstream news & entertainment media. It’s socialist handouts, stolen from taxpayers & consumers, that attract the mass migration into the West & it’s these handouts that keep them here. Insanity & socialism walk hand in hand. They don’t care if the world burns, as long as they get to rule over the smoldering ruins.

- It’s good to see that there are professors like David Haskell & Jordan Peterson who are willing to fight for freedom of speech & expression. Leftists ignore the real violence that they commit, the violence of Antifa & BLM & others. They focus on fake violence coming from wrong speech. It’s a lot like the way they focus on fake rape culture while ignore the real rape culture they want imported. I’d advise people to read the book 1984 (it’s a quick read) instead of watching the movie. The Movie leaves out way too much. Good to see that things have worked in Lindsey’s favor.

- So activist Dutch judges let a terrorist back on the streets. Sadly, I don’t think this surprises many people at this point.

Judging by what’s going on in the COMMENTS section, I’d say THEREBEL site is on drugs…or something.

Maybe alternative means of communications should be established for THEREBEL fans and patrons before another SHUTDOWN is perpetrated against us. The last two* times it was somewhat traumatizing – not knowing!
*The first time was when the SNN was murdered by the CRTC.

Robert Raymond Justin is a dangerous piece of crap. His lust for power and fame has made him the perfect maniacal leader to usher in the replacement of the white Europeans who built this country. https://budapestbeacon.com/satan-using-soros-plan-brussels-usher-apocalypse/
Soros and his Brussels network are directing our PM. basically that is who Justin works for now, clearly not the Canadian people. He is determined to eliminate us in all manner of ways. Soros was schooled in Nazi ways, was in collaboration with them from his youth. That is the man who has a hold on our Prime Minister, our government and our people. Uncle Soso is up to no good in Canada and people have to realize Justin is literally his puppet. The Soros connection and influence cannot be underestimated.

…..as an aside, I came across this. Something to keep in mind as we grow more and more frustrated with those who are supposed to be protecting us but are really trying to exterminate us. Genocide in Canada, who would of thunk it. But be careful of the words you use.

CAROLE MASSE—-said “Unfortunately the masses are Financially illiterate, or not very bright.”
I was reading your accurate comment, as Marcia, the low IQ news reader for CTV News Net was saying, " The average person in the US doesn’t like Trump’s new tax plan as it favors the rich."
Just like Canada, the average US person doesn’t have a clue about any tax system. The reason isn’t that they are dumb because these same people know every baseball player and their batting averages in the American League.
People in Canada will only know something is wrong, when non-working minorities take over their neighborhoods. Give it 5 years unless we replace Scheer with someone action orientated.

Justin Bin Trudeau never worked a day in his freakin life.
Going to university when you have a golden spoon in your mouth ensures you never have to put in any really hard work like the common students do.
When you are brain dead like JBT, an inrush of BS and stupidity from liberal educators fills the void where your brain should be.
You end up being a useless piece of crap . . . And then crime minister of this country.
God, where is the lunatic that is supposed to end this turd’s life hiding?

In a sardonic way, it’s going to be interesting to watch which of the Western European “nutty states” cracks first… Sweden certainly appears to be in the lead right now but France and Germany are not far behind… Then there’s Belgium and Denmark and of course “Maybe Brexit Britain”… While Greece has been a basket case for years now, Italy is not far behind… Oh, and not to dismiss The Netherlands from this race… Place your bets folks, but I’m putting my money on the “Svenska Opan”…

Drew Wakariuk. Socialism is only for the masses, never for the Soros and Trudeau and all the rich and powerful of this world, nor for the big corporations, who use tax heavens, tax schemes, corruption, etc… to avoid paying taxes entirely. Unfortunately, the masses are financially illiterate or not very bright. Our democracies are crumbling and will crash sooner or later because there are too many people corrupted and stealing all they can from the masses who are sleeping through their own destruction.
