NOT THE ONION: Swedish Government Sponsors Sniper Training…For 50 Muslim Immigrant Youth

Does anyone know Swedish for “What the…?”

Sweden has decided to help welcome third world refugees into their society by providing them with valuable training, in language, social skills, and providing accurate rifle fire.

From The New Observer:

The Swedish state is funding a “sniper” training course for recently-arrived Third World “refugees” as part of their “integration program”—despite the ever-growing refugee-terrorist attacks across Europe.

The program has been in place for two years now, as reported originally in the Allehanda newspaper in Sweden, June 2013. Google translate brings the title in at “Charged Up for Sniping”. Now sure they are on a biathlon course, shooting target rifles, what harm can come from that, right?

Having said that, I am a very strong supporter of OUR Second Amendment, I do believe in people having access to gun, participating in and getting proper training, and I fully endorse the idea of getting people involved in the shooting sports.

Double standard you might say; you can say it. I’ll wait. Now with that out of the way let me continue with the general thought… How about training the incoming refugees to do just about anything else first.

From The New Observer again:

“Young people from all over the world—Syria, Afghanistan, Africa, [and] South America” are taking sniping lessons, the Allehanda said, and some of them are “interested and very talented,” the paper quoted course supervisor Birgit Höglin as saying.

Syria, Afghanistan, yeah I’ll bet some of them are “very interested”. Let’s not forget that all the attacks across Europe in 2015 were committed by refugees.

Maybe after target training they can get a crack at SERE training. That will help them blend in to their new country for sure.
