For a very long time, there has been some kind of limit to what the media publishes. It has certainly been very flexible. But it has been there. Let us call it the border of shame. Ahead of the 2010 election it loosened up considerably. Now it has been crossed by a wide margin in a manner that gives me shivers down the spine. The plug has been pulled, all dams have burst. Now the unadulterated hatred flows freely, with the silent consent of all official bodies. The journalists are stoning their own people – and none of them stand up and say STOP – enough is enough!

In Länstidningen, a social democratic newspaper in Östersund, the Sweden Democrats party leader Mr. Jimmie Åkesson is pictured as a cockroach. Behind him stands a pest control worker wearing protective clothing and gas mask while spraying deadly poison gas from a canister marked with the symbols of all the other seven parliamentary parties.

The Sweden Democrats'' leader depicted as a cockroach

The Sweden Democrats” leader depicted as a cockroach

The symbolism could not be clearer. Dissidents are to be exterminated. Sweden Democrats are pests that shall be killed with poison gas. The goal is clear: the party is to be wiped out by any means necessary. The hatred is breaking all boundaries. I cannot recall that I ever have seen a Swedish party leader depicted as vermin to be exterminated. Mr. Olof Palme and Mr. Torbjorn Fälldin and several other Swedish politicians were the subject of a healthy amount of political cartoons at the time. But never, ever with a threat of harsh and sudden death programmed in.

The historical parallels are terrifying
Länstidningen’s low water mark is not satire. It is pure and unadulterated evil that flows from the editorial page. The historical parallels are horrifying. The only archetypes the cartoon can be associated with are the Nazi hate pictures of Jews in the 1930s. Those images paved the way for the gas chambers at Auschwitz, Sobi Bor and Bergen-Belsen and the execution of millions of Jews, mentally retarded and mentally ill. Are we 70 years later to go down that path again? Should hatred against dissenters legitimize extinction? Have we learned nothing seven decades after one of history’s greatest massacres?

“The worst example of misanthropy”
The cartoon is created by Mr. Kjell Nilsson Mäki and illustrates a wishy-washy and intellectually inferior editorial by Ms. Ida Nilsing. After the publication on Saturday, Länstidningen has been stormed by hundreds of angry and outraged comments and emails. In a letter to the newspaper’s editor in chief and responsible publicist, Mr. Lennart Mattsson, a reader writes:

I have not seen a worse example of misanthropy anywhere in Sweden throughout my life. Länstidningen Östersund should not with a single word criticize a party that wants to have political debates since Ida Nilsing and the rest of you at Länstidningen wants to exterminate by gas and physically annihilate the Sweden Democrats – probably because you are not up to “taking the debate.

You would rather murder people than debate with them. Who made the cartoon? What political affiliation does a person have who wants to gas others to death?

Why is it that you cannot produce an editorial that contains something worth reading? Do you lack staff? Are there no reasonably intelligent people employed by the newspaper? Or are you so bloodthirsty that you chose the worst person you could find to write up the bland text?”

Länstidningen: “We are proud”
Länstidningen today responded to the outcry by stating that it is “proud to offer our readers something other than bland portraits of politicians who hold press conferences.”

We are also proud to be one of the few newspapers that keep the tradition of political cartoon satire alive. On Saturday’s editorial page Jimmie Åkesson was drawn as a cockroach that would be exterminated by a pest control worker, sent by the other parliamentary parties. LT’s artist, Kjell Nilsson-Mäki, has explained that he wanted the cartoon to show how the old established parties, despite persistent attempts, have failed to combat the Sweden Democrats. Given this explanation, the illustration is reasonable. But, and herein lies the problem, the illustration and the text have two different aims, which causes the whole to become blurred and open to misunderstanding, especially if one wants to misunderstand.

Survives at taxpayer benevolence
Länstidningen is one of many social democratic newspapers that generates massive losses. The newspaper cannot survive on selling their products that fewer want to buy. LT is surviving due to taxpayers’ benevolence in the form of state press subsidies. This year, the paper received a total of 16,861,000 kronor (approx. 2.5 million USD) in operating subsidies and 361,950 kronor (approx. 55.000 USD) in distribution support. A grand total of 17,222,950 kroner. More than 17 million in state aid to produce death threats against the leader of a democratically elected parliament party.

Länstidningen scandal picture marks a worrying shift in the media’s approach. The plug has been pulled. This signals a brutal escalation of violence and persecution against all who sympathize with the Sweden Democrats’ policies or vote SD since the other seven parties, with their ignorance of vital and crucial issues for the country, do not give them any other choice. Not only should it be open season for death threats against SD’s leader, it is also about time to persecute the 5.7 percent, or 340,000 voters who voted for SD in the 2010 election, says music critic Mr. Po Tidholm in Sunday’s SR (state controlled radio broadcaster) “Good morning world”.

“The big problem is the voters’

His view is that Swedish writers and commentators have “held back” for two years, but are now finally wallowing in expletives and vivid descriptions filled with adjectives regarding SD after Expressen’s (major tabloid that recently exposed a 2 year old video that showed some senior SD MPs behaving badly after a wet night) outstanding work.

“There is suddenly energy and joy in the debate and a general sense of relief” notes Mr. Po Tidholm. Now only one problem remains, and it is major:

The only ones that get off scot-free are the voters. It feels somewhat lame. It is, after all, they who have caused this mess. The presence of a xenophobic party did not became a serious democratic problem until the citizens decided to vote them into the assemblies.

It is “the regular Swedish voters, who – if one is to believe current polls – increasingly feel that SD has the answers to their questions” – who, according to Mr. Po Tidholm, are the problem.

The statistics claim that SD voters are usually low-skilled unemployed men, living in rural areas. This in turn makes them a little hard to pick on, since most media people, of which nearly one hundred percent are white, urban middle-class people, after all, have a some anxiety about their position of power, residence and socioeconomic status. The class gap is simply a little too wide.

“People are fucking stupid”
Mr. Po Tidholm considers himself to have a free pass by his choice of residence. He lives in the countryside in Trönödal in Söderhamn in Hälsingland. There, SD got 11.6 percent of the votes in the 2010 election and was thus “the most SD infected north of Blekinge” in Mr. Tidholm’s words. After much pondering, he has reached the conclusion that the simplest way for him to relate to this political reality is with some professional distance. “But basically, I’m tired and angry and think that people are fucking stupid,” he says.

“Those who farts loudly during dinner”

One conclusion that could be drawn by the success of New Democracy (political party that had a brief stay in parliament 20 years ago) was that there were a considerable number of Swedes who for various reasons want to be those who farts loudly during dinner, ruining the mood with tasteless jokes and use their voting rights to fuck with the so-called establishment. Should these people’s opinions suddenly be respected just because they happen to be represented in Parliament?

And then Mr. Po Tidholm delivers the conclusion that is pressing and must be presented:

So what am I getting at? The hard words should reasonably also be directed at those who have voted for these jerks.

More poison gas against dissidents!
Thanks, that hit the bull’s eye. More contempt for “stupid low-skilled unemployed men living in rural areas”! They are getting off far too easy. Go get the morons! More persecution, more hatred! Bring out the guns against “those who farts loudly during dinner, ruining the mood with tasteless jokes and use their voting rights to fuck with the so-called establishment”! More poison gas against dissident roaches!

The thing that Mr. Po Tidholm and others in the Swedish PC elite fears more than anything else is that the Sweden Democrats’ policies are winning supporters in significantly larger groups than the stupid men in rural areas; academics, intellectuals, writers, journalists, doctors, police officers, nurses, social workers, officials, actors, artists. It’s not quite as easy to openly despise and want to gas to death people belonging to the same social class as yourself as it is to spew contempt on farting low-skilled unemployed men living in rural areas.

What Länstidningen and Mr. Po Tidholm do is not only to descend down to the level of mud wrestling. They also kill the democratic discourse. Without conversation, democracy does not exist. When the words run out and only hatred remains, then we are in very serious trouble.

Now I wonder just one thing: when will the gas chambers be built?

Since the Swedish Democrats took seats in the Riksdag (Sweden’s parliament) in September last year, the party has been under constant attack from the political mainstream and the self-appointed elite mainstream media. The attacks are driven by a desire to isolate and, eventually, destroy the Swedish Democrats.

The attacks are spearheaded by Prime Minister Reinfeldt, who – as this blog has reported – does not think sympathizers and active members of the Swedish Democrats deserve the same protection from the state as other Swedes do. This explicit sanctioning of politically driven harassment and violence is of course unbecoming of a country that considers itself part of the free world. It calls into question whether Sweden can actually be considered a functioning parliamentary democracy; so far, the Swedish Democrats have prevailed and managed to exercise influence over the legislative process in the Riksdag.

But what happens if the political harassment and violence actually succeeds? What happens if the prime minister has it his way and the Swedish Democrats implode under the pressure?

It is not hard to see what Reinfeldt himself thinks will happen. He would enjoy a return to the political status quo that preceded last year’s election. Issues pertaining to the country’s reckless immigration policies would once again be swept under the carpet. The mainstream media outlets could once again resort to cover-ups of Sweden’s rampant crime rates, the genocide-scale sexual violence against ethnically Swedish women and the enormous costs that the welfare-driven immigration imposes on taxpayers.

In the circles of Sweden’s political elite things would be back to normal. They would once again be able to go to upscale dinner parties in Stockholm’s posh inner city districts and pretend that the world outside the limousine windows does not exist. Truth-sayers need not apply.

The real consequences of a demise of the Swedish Democrats would be fundamentally different. The hundreds of thousands who actively or tacitly support the SD would not change their minds about immigration. Those supporters now represent 6-8 percent of all voters, possibly with another 2-3 percent who could vote for SD but so far have not “come out”. These people would still want to see a change in immigration policy, and their determination to achieve such a change would only be emboldened if they perceived that the political and media elite had crushed SD.

Where would they turn? There are at least two political movements that would stand in line to scoop up disgruntled SD supporters: the National Democrats and the Swedish Resistance Movement.

The National Democrats have won seats in some local parliaments but have never become a force to be reckoned with on the national scene. Ostensibly, this is due to the success of SD, as the two parties share some important elements in their criticism of Sweden’s immigration policies. But there are also important differences between ND and SD that help explain why the latter, not the former, now has seats in the Riksdag. Unlike SD, ND has never made any categorical statements against the use of force to achieve political goals.

The very fact that ND has left the door open to violent campaigns makes the party dangerous. There has been some criticism among the ranks of ND that SD has sold itself to the parliamentary process. Should SD fail in its intentions to close the flood gates in Sweden’s immigration policy, the ND would be quick to seize the momentum that SD has created. They would market themselves as superficially peaceful and ramp up their violent efforts at forcing their policies upon the Swedish people.

A major difference between SD and ND is that ND is a nationalist party, as opposed to the patriotic SD. Patriotism is love for your country without resentment or hostility toward other countries and cultures; nationalism is love for your country based on such resentment and hostility. This difference is crucial and helps explain what the National Democrats would be capable of, should they gain political momentum.

The Swedish Resistance Movement shares ND’s basic principles of nationalism, but builds its policies explicitly on a Nazi platform. They distance themselves from parliamentarianism and embrace the totalitarian ideology of the Third Reich. Their attitude to political violence tends to be one of outcome, not of principle.

SD is a peaceful, democratic movement. Should they be marginalized and made irrelevant by ugly strong-arming tactics, and be forced out as a result of relentless harassment and violence, there is no doubt that ND and the Swedish Resistance Movement would be the real winners. Should Sweden be brought to that point, a new level of political violence could erupt. That eruption could be strong enough to hurl the country into a stage that proxies a civil war.

No, I am not exaggerating. Already today, Sweden is plagued by a high level of politically driven violence, more so than any other European country. A lot of the violence goes undetected – or unreported – by the mainstream media but is picked up by alternative news outlets. An escalation of this violence, driven by a surge in support for violent anti-immigration movements, would make its way into mainstream media as well. The political elite would be faced with a terrible reality: their country is about to fall apart.

I pray to God that Sweden will never be hurled into the dungeons of such a political, social and economic disaster. I fear, though, that we can no longer rule out this scenario as a possible future for Sweden four, maybe five years ahead.

If there is any reason and intellectual decency left in the circles of Sweden’s political elite, they will see the writing on the wall and start working with SD as a serious political player. If on the other hand they turn a blind eye to the political and social realities in their country, they will be responsible for the ultimate destruction of what was once a thriving, peaceful and prosperous democracy.

Before Sverigedemokraterna (the Swedish Democrats) won seats in the Swedish national parliament in September last year there was not a critical word uttered in the Riksdag about Sweden’s immigration policy. Today the situation is different: SD politicians take every opportunity to challenge the reckless open-borders policies imposed by the political elite. The first reaction from that elite was to expand an already excessively generous immigration policy to invite even more immigrants from far-away corners of the world. Though this might have been expected (I personally did not think they would have the audacity) it is nevertheless refreshing to see that the SD challenge is not going unnoticed by the elite.

The fact of the matter is that the SD challenge has come at the very last moment: the open borders policy has overwhelmed Sweden with immigration of a size and character that begs the question if the prime minister actually knows what he is doing. The official motive for allowing massive immigration is that Sweden is in desperate need of workforce immigration. Presumably, the retirement of the baby boomers born in the 1940s leaves so many open spots on the labor market that native Swedes cannot possibly fill them. Therefore, the story goes, Sweden needs to invite as many marginally educated Somalis and Afghans as possible.

The flaws in this argument are so many that it is surprising it is still being used. To begin with, the 1940s generation has been retiring for about eight years already. The average retirement age in Sweden has been hovering around 62-63 for a long time, which means that of almost one million 40s boomers, some 700,000 have already retired. Any student of the Swedish economy knows that this has not caused any massive shortage of labor at all. On the contrary, over the past ten years the employment rate of the Swedish work force has actually dropped from 67 percent to 64 percent. A larger share of the work force is without a job today than during the Millennium recession, despite the baby boomer generation’s retirement.

It is easy to see why this drop in employment has taken place. In an economy that creates 60,000 new jobs per year in good economic times, the employment rate cannot rise if there is also a large net immigration taking place. Over the past ten years immigration has increased from 60,000 per year to 100,000. During the same time, according to Statistics Sweden migration data, emigration has risen from 33,000 to 48,000 resulting in a significant growth in net migration: ten years ago immigration exceeded emigration by 27,000 people. Today net immigration exceeds 52,000 per year, with a record high of 63,000 in 2009.

These numbers should be considered in view of Sweden’s population of only nine million. To make matters worse, there is a persistent education gap between people leaving and coming to Sweden. Very few immigrants have a high school degree, while the average emigrant has at least a BA university degree.

It is obvious that the arithmetic of Sweden’s immigration policy is working against the best interests of the Swedish people and the Swedish economy. Exporting educated workers and importing uneducated people is bad enough; importing two uneducated workers for everyone who leaves is directly irresponsible. Who is going to pay for the education of these immigrants? If Sweden really had an insatiable need for workforce immigration, then how come the 30 countries within the EU and the Nordic region cannot satisfy that need? Why would Sweden have to rely on the remotest – geographically, culturally and socially – corners of the world to fill its workforce need, provided such a need existed? (Which, again, it does not.)

A couple of factoids from Eurostat, the statistics agency of the EU, further underscore how out-of-control irresponsible this immigration policy actually is. Sweden is Europe’s second-largest recipient of immigrants – in absolute numbers – from the least-developed nations in the world. Only Britain takes in more least-developed immigrants, and its rationale lies in its commonwealth past. Furthermore, in 2007 this small nation, with less than three percent of the EU population, took in 16 percent of all asylum seekers absorbed by the EU. No other EU country accepted a larger share than Sweden.

The asylum-driven inflow is steadfastly growing. Apparently, Sweden has made a name for itself as having open borders: from 2007 to 2010 the number of asylum seekers coming to Sweden increased by 50 percent, with a 32-percent increase from 2009 to 2010 alone.

There is no way to motivate Sweden’s immigration madness, no matter how you slice immigration and labor market statistics. The country has opened its borders, lowered the bar for immigrants with questionable documentation and made its welfare state available even to those who are denied immigration or asylum. The challenge from the Swedish Democrats came in the nick of time. The question is: will it make a difference in the nick of time?

On Tuesday 12 October it was time to open the Swedish parliamentary session for the year. It was a particular opening day, since Sweden had had an election and a new party had been elected to the parliament, the Sweden Democrats.

The opening ceremony started in the church with a sermon held by the bishop Eva Brunne, who, at the end of her sermon, made the majority of the SD-members leave the church, something that has never happened before. The bishop seized the opportunity to stage a deliberate provocation. In the form of a sermon she delivered a politically left-wing manifesto barely disguised in religion. She could have chosen to emphasize understanding, collaboration and good will instead of the abysmal hate and distrustfulness that have appeared during the election campaign. But behind a mask of false goodness she chose to incite to further political hate. The controversial part of the sermon was:

Yesterday many thousands of people gathered in Stockholm and in other parts of the country in order to state their opinion. Call out their loathing for that which makes difference between people. The racism that says that you are not worth as much as I am. You shall not have the same rights as I have. You are not worthy of a life in freedom. And this because of just one thing – that we happen to have been born in different parts of our world. This is not worthy a democracy like ours to make difference between people. It is not possible for believing people to make difference between people. It is not worthy people to make difference between people. It is not enough to give some hundred people the mandate to represent us. Here we have a joint mission. And if anyone fall silent or is silenced in the fight for human dignity, we must see to it that even the stones shout. We do it assisted by God.

Why was this an offence? The day before, Monday 11 October, there was a manifestation in Stockholm against the SD in which the bishop participated. It was arranged by several extreme left-wing groups among others the AFA (Antifa), who for years have harassed and even tried to murder SD members. In this demonstration, there were manifestations against the SD that were not on the level, among others according to the Liberal Party MP Johan Persson, who had witnessed the manifestation and said that it was “disgusting” and that there were placards that were absolutely beneath contempt.

The left-wing party leader Lars Ohly was one of the main speakers. He delivered a speech in which he said that “the Sweden Democrats must leave the country”. The shouting

Bishop Brunne

participants conveyed similar messages in choir. Eggs were thrown at policemen. The security police forbade the SD members to go out during the demonstration, since the atmosphere was judged to be too threatening and dangerous. The bishop also participated. She vindicated that she was there for just 20 minutes and that she did not observe anything negative.

To pronounce the first phrase above was thus a mean way of insulting the SD PMs. To say that “stones must shout” is a biblical way of sanctioning violence (stone-throwing) at SD voters. A crosier does not automatically entail any particular understanding of politics, or even of morality out of the ordinary. That is what bishop Eva Brunne now have proved.

Finally the sentence was passed. In one of my former blogposts I wrote about this abominable manslaughter of the 78-year-old woman on a parking lot in Landskrona.

A few days ago the law court found that Ahmad Akileh, with Lebanese citizenship, was guilty of grievous bodily harm, aggravated assault, gross negligence manslaughter and ill treatment of normal degree to prison for 1 year and 10 months. Ahmad Akileh shall also pay 43 000 SEK damages to the woman’s husband Sven Wickman and 18 944 SEK to the estate of the deceased.

At the end of the session Akileh complained about the fact that he had a problem with his stomach and mental health problems that made the judge reduce the period in prison with a few months, a sentence that in reality should have been 2 years. The fact that he lied in 2007 and said that he was from Iraq instead of Lebanon in order to become a permanent residence permit in Sweden did not seem to influence the senctence, as he was not sentenced to expulsion after having served his sentence.

Many people, and even some of the journalists I mentioned in my earlier blog post that then defended the perpetrator, mean that the sentence is to lenient. The woman’s husband claims that the perpetrator got off lighty.

This is what Leif G.W. Person, a somewhat controversial Swedish criminologist says, when commenting on the sentence:

The whole thing took place in Landskrona on 29 March. The same Landskrona where the Sweden Democrats in the latest election got 22 per cent of the votes and valet and possible is it so bad that this can have had something to do with the case. Some kind of inverted racism that have jeopardized our equality before the law. Irrespective of what, both the sentence, the sentenced person and above all his defender, Leif Silbersky, have come as a a gift from above for the Sweden Democrats’ party leaders.

As a comparison we can examine another sentence that was pronounced recently, an imprisonment of five years. The perpetrator, Johan af Donner, former Communications chief of the Swedish Red Cross, was sentenced for serious aggravated fraud, breach of trust, being accessory to aggravated accounting fraud, untrue statement and complicity in obstructing in fiscal control (with reservation for that the legal term can be wrongly translated) against the Red Cross and the Swedish Cancer Society. He had swindled the organization out of millions of Swedish crowns.

The two sentences were pronounced within a week. The reactions when comparing the sentences have been massive and people are in an awful rage and they ask themselves how a human life can be so underestimated compared to money. For there is a trend in Sweden that a life is worth almost nothing when it comes to a judicial decision. Money and objects apparently seem to have a higher value.

The law courts have apparently abandoned human dignity. The 78-year-old lady on the parking lot has no value. She was a worthless creature that just as well could have been killed. This is what Swedish case law in plain language communicates. The perpetrators are glorified, they are defended and cuddled.

Even the the mass media show contempt for the ill-treated husband och the fact that he had witnessed how his wife was killed in the street. The media has shown greater indignation of mismanaged animals than they have done for the old couple in Landskrona.

So when is Sweden ready to do some research into this matter? To find out what is actually valuable in our society and what is not. Comparing the law courts’ sentences and fines. This would be a real challenge. The next, and inevitable question is of course why this is the case.

I have earlier written about how Swedish media and parliamentary parties’ members always defame the party the Sweden Democrats (hereinafter called SD) (here, here and here) and always connect the party name with the adjective “xenophobic” . The SD is today the biggest party outside the parliament and the prognoses show that the SD will probably reach the number of voters (4% or more) that will open the doors of the parliament to the SD. Let’s see what make the other parties so terrified of this party.

The SD was formed in 1988 and is a democratic and nationalistic party. Up to 2005 it was a fairly marginal movement. The founders and the early prominent figures of the party were to some extent of persons active in nationalist parties and organizations. These historical facts are something that other parties often refer to in order to defame the party. They often forget that their own parties have a lot of deadwood, like for instance the Social Democrats, who nominated Hitler for the Nobel Peace Prize. At least three of the present parties in the parliament formed together the The State Institute for Racial Biology, the first of its kind in the world. So “brown roots”, that the SD often is accused of, are apparently to be found in several parties’ historical facts.

In 1997 the the National Swedish Police Board (Rikspolisstyrelsen) published a handbook, in which they describe that younger activists left the party because it was parliamentary and democratic. The authors were Anna-Lena Lodenius and Per Wikström. In the Daily News (Dagens Nyheter) the head of unit, Margareta Linderoth, stated on 8 May 2002 that the Security Police (SÄPO) was not interested in the SD since it was an accepted political party.

The well-known Nazi-researcher Helene Lööw published in 1998 the book “Nazism in Sweden 1980-1997″. In this book of 526 pages the SD is mentioned in only one case in which party leaders are afraid of being assaulted. “It’s not the immigrants that are after us, but the Nazis”. Helene Lööw has several times stated that the SD is democratic and not racist, not Nazi and not xenophobic. She has among other things stated this in the TV program Studio Ekdal in Axess TV on 30 September 2006 and in a seminar at the University of Karlstad on 7 February 2008. Some other journalists have also stated that the SD is not racist or xenophobic.

The largest inflow of SD members, a veritable explosion, has shown that many new members have belonged to other parties and some of them have been active in more than one party. But the politically correct journalists dedicate their time to scrutinize the SD from 1988. Their continuously repeated mantra is that the SD’s have no other ideology than racism.

It is true that in 1988 the SD had hardly no well thought-out political theory, but during the past 22 years, the movement has ripened and found stable social-conservative values. At the moment, the SD is unfortunately the only party in Sweden that with disease awareness.

Today the mass immigration must be handled. That is why many people are ready to vote for the SD in order to get an thorough change of this immense failure and waste. The parliamentary parties remain silent. They know that the immigration has failes, but if the acknowledge this they also have to take measures, which is impossible in this politically correct society where someone always feels injured if you roll up your sleeves. The parliamentary parties know that what is needed is a deus ex machina that can save the situation, and in the present situation there is only the SD that is willing to take on this responsibility.

A study of th SD’s list of future parliamentary members shows that the SD members come from:

Statistics of party members' former political affiliation

By that the question of where the SD at bottom has its roots is answered.

Course programme before it was deleted.

Course programme before it was deleted.

On the 17 February late in the evening one of the Swedish blogs “of free information” posted a blog post on a course given by The Swedish Media Publishers’ Association (Tidningsutgivarna, henceforth the TU).

The TU is the trade association for Sweden’s daily newspapers and other media companies. In all it has around 240 members, of which the daily newspapers make up around 170. The TU is an association that alleges, according to their site, that they defend the Swedish freedom of speech and freedom of press.

Now, what was this blog post about? It appears that the TU organises a course for journalists and the name of the course is “How we handle the Sweden Democrats and other extreme parties – facts and practical training“. The picture above shows the deleted webpage. The text in English:

Many editors don’t know how to handle the Sweden Democrats up to the election next year. Is the party so extreme that it needs special treatment? How do we treat political arguments that are based on incorrect facts, or that can be incitement to racial hatred?

– What type of party is the SD? What similar parties are there in other countries?
– What voters are they aiming at?
– Could you say that the SD is “xenophobic”?
– How do the party’s values manifest themselves?
– How true are their statements?
– When is something a “permitted” view and when does it become xenophobic? When does the view become incitement to racial hatred?
– How do laws, press ethics and the editorial policy impact the coverage of parties that bring forward extreme, immigration critical or populist views?
– What can we learn from how media covered Ny Demokrati 1990-1994?

The afternoon vill be spent on practical training around the “new” situations that the media’s coverage of the SD and similar parties can entail, for example:
– What do you do if a politician states that the Muslims are the biggest threat? If a certain group of people is alleged to rape more than other groups?
– How extreme shall a view be in order to immediately answer to it?
– Among what views are you supposed to keep neutral? What can you as a journalist dissociate yourself from? What should you dissociate yourself from?

This embarrassing content was noticed and commented by many blogs. Thus, early the following morning the course programme had been removed. Now the webpage is more discreet. The TU does no longer show openly that the meeting is a downright attack on the Sweden Democrats. Under the surface, the content is most likely the same.

An interesting observation is that the TU gives another course, this time on the threat against the freedom of speech. Isn’t the TU itself one of the biggest threats against the freedom of speech? The TU is financed by the tax payers through subsidies from the European Social Fund. They receive 11,3 million SEK per year (1 130 000 EUR). Who audits how this sum is spent?

But this is not the only course in Sweden that is manifestly against the Sweden Democrats. There is a university course at Malmo University (course length equivalent to 5 weeks full-time studies) on the same subject. A course and discussions on xenophobia is not controversial. But when reading this course’s site further down the page you find that they cannot help mentioning the Sweden Democrats.

This is thus a state subsidized university course on how to prevent a fully democratic eligible party to participate in a (anyway alleged) democratic society, a party with representatives in many Swedish municipal and county councils and, according to many preliminary polls, probably a parliamentary party from September 2010.

Swedish media – and politicians – have apparently forgotten Voltaire’s saying:

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.

Freedom of speech is asserted to be a valued cornerstone in the western countries. Sweden, as well, wants to emphasize that this country is no exception. I will nevertheless show that this freedom is deeply threatened in Sweden. Here I will only mention a few examples, but there are many, many more.

The well established Swedish morning newspaper the Dagens Nyheter does not open its letters to the editor for every Tom, Dick and Harry. But for writers who propose ways of limiting democracy, there does not seem to be any obstacle to getting a text accepted, particularly if you have a title or high examination. Then you can spread your anti-democratic propaganda even without having to feel ashamed. And most people in leading positions will accept it as something completely in order!

The psychoanalyst Thomas Bohm, entangles himself in a discussion on 9 January with the title “The Sweden Democrats are an orthodox minority group”. The party (hereinafter “SD”) is accused of being “Unswedish” and intolerant. But a considerable part of the Swedish inhabitants share the party’s views, so how can they then be “Unswedish” and a minority group? So could these statements be scientific and be well founded? He continues to say: “since we don’t want to be like SD, but consider tolerance as a desirable characteristic, we can let them stay on here”.

Interesting is the way he uses the word “we”, to show that “everyone” has the same opinion as Bohm. How can he know? On the contrary, he is using wishful thinking in a way to propagate for the “correct” opinion. He continues his unscientific nonsense under cover of his academic title.

Another letter to the editor published in the other well renowned morning paper, The Svenska Dagbladet, written by Martin Peterson, associate professor in philosophy proposes that one way to outweigh all the future seats of the SD in the parliament, would be that all the other parties form a group together containing the same number of seats, whose only purpose is to vote against the SD votes. He seriously suggests that the votes of thousands of Swedish voters would be outmanoeuvred. He shows no moral doubts whatsoever about the fact that he is talking about a way to undermine democracy!

An association called “The Geatish Association” (Götiska förbundet) is a fellowship established in 1815 and the Swedish king Carl XVI Gustav is the fellowship’s protector. It is a democratic association, is open for all Swedish citizens and is against discrimination. On 8 January GA excludes two of its members because they are members of SD. The excluded persons are alleged to harm GA because they adhere to the Sweden Democrats.

Stellan Bojerud is a retired army officer and a military historian. He has been active in the party the Moderaterna (the Moderates, that form a part of today’s government) and has participated in Swedish radio and television and is renowned for much more. In 2009, he was disappointed at the Moderates’ defence policy, left the Moderates and joined SD.

He describes on his blog how his life changed after this switch of parties. He was fired from his job at Historical Media. An old friend broke off their friendship, but more people came and shook his hand in secret. They said that they didn’t dare to it show openly. When he and his party mates meet they have to do it at secret places, use code words in SMS and coded phone calls because of the threats of the left extremists in AFA (Anti Fascist Action, a militant group using violence).

Stellan and his party mates live like a resistance movement in an occupied country. But as he says: “we are not occupied by a foreign enemy, but by Swedes who support foreign interests (extreme Islamism). Quislings of the Swedish people”. All his articles, formerly inserted in the all the large Swedish newspapers, are now rejected. Not even the local newspaper accepted his reply to an attack filled with made up accusations.

N.B! There are many more people who have been dismissed from their jobs and who are bullied just because they are members of the SD.

In the suppression of free opinion and contempt of democracy that characterize today’s Sweden there is an underlying “terror”, that supports and preserves the folly. If you don’t keep to the accepted opinion, you are immediately bullied out of the community. This is the reason the misgovernment can continue. It is worse to admit that you intends to vote for SD than revealing that you are homosexual.
