Is Hating Muslims A Hateful Offense?

A leader of the right wing Swedish Democrats published an article in the opinion section of the Aftonbladet newspaper in which he accused Muslims of being the greatest threat to his nation of any event since World War II. Jimmie Akesson said “today’s multicultural Swedish power-elite are totally blind to the dangers of Islam” and went on to claim that more than ten Muslim terrorist organizations are now operating in Sweden. “As a Swedish Democrat, I see this as our greatest external threat since World War II and promise to use all m y power to change the trend during next year’s election.” Many of his opponents charge Akesson with copying Nazi attacks on Jews who they claimed were a subversive force in Germany.

There are cries by such distinguished critics as Per Hultengard, a lawyer with the Swedish Publishers Association who charge Akesson as being guilty of a hate crime because he is stirring up anger and potential violence against Muslim citizens. We beg to differ. A free society allows hate to be expressed. Consider the hate that George Bush generated in American society! Allow those who hate to spread hate and believe in the basic decency of individuals that the vast majority will reject such views.

If we allow hate to make us hate then hate has won.

Swedish Social Democrats Secret Bigots!

A radio station planted three of its people in local chapters of the Swedish Social Democrats in order to discover what they thought about immigrants. Outwardly, the Social Democrats have been championing the rights of immigrants, but reporters quickly found out the real thinking of these supposed defenders of human rights. During one-third of the meetings attended by the undercover journalists, members of the Social Democrats made racist or anti-immigrant remarks. Among the comments were statements that immigrants were not loyal to the country of Sweden, they did not want to pay taxes and they would rather take black-market jobs. “Those who come from these countries,” said one laughing Social Democrat, “they’re pretty raw and real savages…it’s in their nature.”

A member of the Swedish parliament claimed immigrants from Afghanistan had “2,000 parasites on their body. Not even our dogs have that many.” Naturally, the Swedish Democratic Party argued the comments were taken out of context and they were few in number.

Yes, it is the fault of those damn reporters for reporting what was said!!
