Robert Reich, UC Berkley Professor and former U.S. Secretary of labor under Clinton lashed out at President Trump on twitter, suggestion that the President incited the riots plaguing Sweden.
“Trump’s lies have consequences. 48 hrs after his comments on Sweden, riots broke out in an immigrant community,” Reich tweeted.
While fake news like CNN mocked Trump for talking about terrorism in Sweden, just a few days later migrant riots broke out. Riots have been going on for almost a week in the Swedish town of Rinkeby, which is known as a no-go zone, with unusually high levels of crime.
The violence in Sweden started after police made a drug-related arrest, when a crowd of violent immigrants attacked with weapons, setting cars on fire, and looting and ravaging the town.
Riots reportedly spread last night, with another town with a high migrant population began to riot. Tensions have been high in Rosengard after the closure of an Islamic center.
Breitbart has more:
Earlier this month, Reich similarly blamed conservatives for violence that made national headlines and embarrassed leftists. After protesters shut down a speech at UC Berkeley by then-Breitbart Tech Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos, Reich claimed that he “heard there’s some relationship there between [instigators of arson and physical attacks] and the right wing and the movement that is affiliated with Breitbart News.”
The professor offered no evidence, but CNN anchor Don Lemon egged him on to expound the theory instead of fact-checking the assertion. Reich also found sympathetic ears in Salon, Newsweek, and UC Berkeley’s official blog; they all reprinted a piece where he speculated that “that Yiannopoulos and Breitbart were in cahoots with the agitators in order to lay the groundwork for a Trump crackdown on universities and their federal funding.”
After Breitbart Tech pointed out the left-wing press’s eagerness to spread Reich’s conspiracy, the Washington Post poured cold water on the narrative, calling the supposed plot “phantasmagorical.”
