Wait until some pedo tries this here

Don’t laugh it will happen. There are some truly sick people out there and not just the pedos.

Then there are the the social worker jobsworths who think of only of the criminal’s human rights like the ones in Sweden who have allowed a convicted paedophile to adopt a child.

A Swedish man convicted for molesting a five-year-old girl in his neighbourhood has been given the green light to adopt a child of his own, as Swedish authorities said they did not fear he would relapse into criminal behaviour.

The man, who is in his 60s, has been found guilty of more than 90 crimes, mostly different types of fraud. The regional Helsingborgs Dagblad (HD) newspaper reported on Friday that the man was also convicted of molesting his neighbour’s then five-year-old daughter in 2004, and was also suspected of raping a young teenage girl.  Read more »

Germany has become one massive brothel

Spare the rod spoil the child

We have this coming down the pipe at us in New Zealand, if it hasn’t already started.

Sweden has bred generations of spoiled brats.

Sweden’s liberal approach to parenting has bred a nation of ill-mannered brats, a leading expert has warned in a new book which calls on parents to seize back control of their families.

David Eberhard, who was a prominent psychiatrist before becoming a writer, warns in his new book, How Children Took Power, that Swedish parents are now unwilling to discipline their children in any way. Swedes in 1979 became the first to adopt a total smacking ban.

“We live in a culture where so-called experts say that children are ‘competent’ and the conclusion is that children should decide what to eat, what to wear, and when to go to bed,” he said.

“If you have a dinner party, they never sit quietly. They interrupt. They’re always in the centre, and the problem is that when they become young adults, they take with them the expectation that everything is centred around them, which makes them very disappointed.”   Read more »
