Swedish Police Featured in Fox News Segment Trump Cited: That Filmmaker Is a Madman

Trump’s anti-Muslim hysteria embarrasses the United States again
World • Views: 34,965

Proving once again that there’s nothing the right wing won’t try to defend when it’s pushed out there by one of their demagogic leaders, the Right Wing Unison Parrots’ Chorus is screaming that TRUMP WAZ RIGHT! about terrorism caused by immigrants in Sweden. Never mind what the Swedish government says, or what people who live there say — they’re all LYING because they secretly want to install shariah law!

Why does Trump need intelligence briefings or meetings with embassy officials when he can get all the information he needs from Fox News?

If you think my characterization of the Unison Parrots’ Chorus is an exaggeration, just take a look around a few right wing blogs today. Or check out the nonsense being spread around the Internet by Alex Jones crony Paul Joseph Watson, who says it’s “commonplace to hear explosions when you’re walking down a street in Malmo.”

Meanwhile, the Swedish police officers who were interviewed in that Fox News segment Trump cited are now publicly saying that the maker of the film about immigrants used in that segment deceptively edited their interviews, and they’re calling the filmmaker “a madman.”

Which sounds about right.

Two Swedish police officers were interviewed in the film. Anders Göranzon and Jacob Ekström answered questions about how weapons are becoming more accessible. Horowitz also asked the officers about how crime has spread through cities. But the police officers now say that their answers were taken out of context, and are very critical of how their comments were portrayed on Fox News ”Tucker Carlson Tonight”. ”I don’t understand why we are a part of the segment. The interview was about something completely different to what Fox News and Horowitz were talking about”, says Anders Göranzon.

Why were you interviewed?

”It was supposed to be about crime in high risk areas. Areas with high crime rates. There wasn’t any focus on migration or immigration”.

How did you react to the news segment?

”We don’t stand behind it. It shocked us. He has edited the answers. We were answering completely different questions in the interview. This is bad journalism.”

Anders Göranzon continues: ”It feels like hell. The real questions should be shown along with our answers. We don’t own the rights to the film, but the end result is that we don’t want to talk to journalists after this. We can’t trust each other.”

Have you done anything to stop the news segment?

”We just saw it. What can we do? One thing is talking to you. The excerpt they showed doesn’t say anything, we answered a different question. We don’t stand behind what he says. He is a madman.”

So basically, we’re talking about a Swedish version of James O’Keefe here.

Trump, of course, is doubling down on his idiotic smears of Sweden.
