Shakespear’s Hamlet would agree: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
Since the self-proclaimed Conservative party Venstre (meaning “Left”) with their slogan “Denmark’s Liberal party” took power in June 2015, the number of rapes reported to the police has soared by a shocking 196 percent, according to the Danish state’s bureau of statistics.
This rise in rape attacks coincides with the liberal government’s opening of Danish national borders to refugees that primarily are from Islamic countries.
In Denmark, there are no official statistics on the rapists’ ethnicity or nationalities, but according to a report from the Danish Ministry of Justice, “There is a clear overrepresentation of immigrants from non-western countries when looking at the statistics of convicted rapists.”
Surveying neighbouring countries, one might get an idea of just how big a share of these rapes are committed by non-Western migrants and refugees. In Sweden, 92 percent of all severe rapes (severely violent rapes) are committed by migrants and refugees. 100 percent of all attack rapes (where victim and attacker had no previous contact) are committed by that same group. 100 percent of attack rapes in Oslo are committed by foreign men, often asylum seekers.
