Sweden’s New Government Censorship

The Swedish government is now officially questioning free speech. A government agency has declared so-called Swedish “new media” — news outlets that refuse to subscribe to the politically correct orthodoxies of the mainstream media — a possible threat to democracy. In a government report, tellingly called “The White Hatred” written by Totalförsvarets forskningsinstitut (Total Defense Research Institute), a government agency under the Swedish Ministry of Defense, Swedish new media such as Samhällsnytt (formerly known as Avpixlat), Nyheter Idag and Nya Tider are lumped together with neo-Nazi media such as Nordfront.

“Hate” is defined broadly to include violent extremism, “hateful expressions”, jokes, internet trolling and even the use of certain quotation marks. For instance, in the report, placing the word “refugees” in quotation marks, as well as “unaccompanied children,” is supposedly an expression of “hate”. (Many, if not most, migrants classified as “unaccompanied children” have turned out to be grown men).

    Their immediate failure to sieze every copy of the Qur’an, Hadith, and Sunnah, and arrest every Imam who reads them out publicly or even paraphrase them is proof of the unequal application of the law. Every mosque would be closed if the standards applied equally to all people and religions in Sweden. This is not justice, this is biased repression.

    Over 52% of the Qur’an is hatred of the infidel; 21% of the Hadith, and 67% of the Sunnah are about jihad (and mostly about the violent kind): https://wikiislam.net/wiki/Muslim_Statistics_-_Scripture

    Liberty is hatred.
    Censorship is tolerance.

    White men in Sweden will volunteer to be placed in concentration camps soon. The people in charge, the white women, will convert to Islam.

    Diversity and freedom don’t mix well.

      One is still stronger than the other. “Diversity” is only a slogan.

    Sweden is the template for Canada, much of the above is happening here, and the irreversible damage will cascade quicker than anyone can imagine.

    Ironic that Sweden’s flag breaks through the wall like the Kool-Aid jug.

    The Swedish elites are running scared. This is desperation stuff.

    I am not sure there is a country called Sweden that really exists anymore. Sweden is fast becoming just another fake country like Palestine.

  • Stick a fork in this country and walk away.
