Those who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) suggest that everything that Donald Trump says is a lie. They deride any statement or tweet by parsing it in ways that lead to interpretation that is never flattering. But what really makes them crazy is that the passage of time often proves Trump to be correct in his tweets. For example, Trump's early suggestions that the media produces fake news? Yep, that's pretty much what we're experiencing right now. Consider for example the little reported fake news awards that provide a window into the incompetence and bias of the main stream media.

As another example, think back to a statement during a speech Trump made in February, 2017:
"You look at what's happening in Germany. You look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers [of Muslim immigrants] and they're having problems like they never thought possible."
Anti-Trumpers when nuts. How could he say that? The Swedes, along with every progressive on the planet, were outraged. There'd been no terror attack ("last night") in Sweden, after all. Never mind that Muslim immigrants were causing problems inside the country, a hyper-literal interpretation of Trump's comments, allowed the TDS crowd to call him a "liar" and a "fool," not to mention an "Islamophobe" and a "bigot."

A few months ago there was a firebombing at a synagogue in ... Gothenberg, Sweden. Patrick Poole reports:
An apparent terror attack occurred overnight in Sweden's second largest city, as a mob of masked men firebombed a synagogue in Gothenberg during a youth event.

This happened just a day after Palestinian protesters in Malmo, Sweden's third largest city, shouted "Shoot the Jews" and chanted taunts about killing Jews.

Sweden has been leading the international diplomatic effort against President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, which was announced last Wednesday.

JTA reports that at least a dozen masked men approached the synagogue last night and hurled firebombs as synagogue officials rushed the youths gathered inside into the basement until police arrived.

According to one Jewish community official, rains prevented the fire from spreading and causing more damage.

The Local-Sweden reports that at least three of the attackers were arrested by police this morning.

No motive has been identified for the attack [I'm certain it had to do with an obscure anti-Muslim video], but The Local reported anti-Semitic incidents in Malmo and Stockholm over the weekend during protests against the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem.
In December, there was a firebombing of a synagogue in Malmo, Sweden. The trained hamsters in the U.S. media avoiding any reporting of this—it conflicted with the narrative.

And today, The Sunday Times (UK) reports:
Sweden is among the world’s safest, richest and best-run countries enjoying steady growth and rising employment. But it has been experiencing an unprecedented surge of gang shootings, bombings and sexual assaults.

In a country of 10m people, more than 320 shootings and dozens of bombings were reported in 2017, along with more than 110 murders and 7,226 rapes — a 10% increase on 2016. More than 36% of young Swedish women say they feel unsafe at night.

The authorities have admitted they are unable to investigate rape cases immediately because the resources are focused on gang crime. “We are forced to choose between two evils,” the police said.

The crime surge is mainly confined to so-called “areas of social exclusion”, a code for neighbourhoods such as Rosengard that are predominantly populated by [Muslim] immigrants. They are not classic ghettos — the infrastructure and services are better than in areas of central London — but these communities are plagued by high crime rates and unemployment.
Hmmm. Looks like Trump was right, only one year too early.

I have on a number of occasions suggested that Islamic extremism is to the early decades of the 21st century what Nazism was to the early decades of the 20th century. It's interesting that firebombing synagogues and roving gangs of thugs who terrorize the general populace were and are early stage activities for both forms of evil. The President of the United States had the courage to buck political correctness and its predictable accusations of "Islamophobia," "racism," and "bigotry" and identify this rising tide of 21st century Islamic "Nazism" in places like (but certainly not limited to) Sweden.
