I think it's funny that the only statistics showing such an increase are those from neo-nazi organizations (I'm not going to call them the fundamentalist far right, because even the fundamentalist right hate them).

All other sources, including the judicial system and case-by-case analysis, shows the same thing: there have been no significant increase in sexual or violent crime the past ten years. Sadly, one of the few types of crime that actually have increased is native-on-immigrant violence and harassment, mostly in the agrarian provinces.
I'm not going to say that all asylumn seekers are perfectly pure and innocent and incorruptible, because they are not. they are saints and jerks like everyone else. There is no statistically significant difference.
And the vast majority of them have no problems with equality and HBTQ people, because they fled here from that prosecution and genuinly want to conform.
I can't say how it's done in all of Sweden, but in the province I live in the troublemakers are swiftly reeducated and assimilated.
And , yes, we do have check-ups. Several, in fact. The higher your education, the more likely you are to get approved. The smaller your known criminal record, the more likely you are to get approved.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what you call us; the largest problem facing sweden isn't people fleeing prosecution. It's the extremism that straves for militarization and reduced democratic rights.

But, whatever. I guess it just means I'm an anti- everything moron with no sense of patriotism who thinks you get to chose what reality you want to live in just because it happens to explain availiable data better than any other.
Let's see again in fifty years. Or was it 2050? or 2045? or maybe 2060? Regardless of which variant you adhere to, lets see who is in valhalla.
