(The Local)– Sweden Democrat leader Jimmie Åkesson kept to familiar themes in his summer speech on Saturday, focusing on Islam, immigration and crime.
Swedish party leaders traditionally hold summer speeches on their home turf during the holiday season and Saturday was the turn of the Sweden Democrats’ Jimmie Åkesson.
A crowd of a few hundred people had gathered in Åkesson’s home town of Sölvesborg in Sweden’s far south to hear the 35-year-old launch the party’s push towards the general election in September.
Following a sweeping review of the current global conflict zones, Åkesson shifted focus to Islam.
“Islamism is the Nazism and Communism of our time,” he said, prompting the most generous applause of the afternoon.
Furthermore Åkesson said that he demanded that all aid to organizations and associations related to “Islamism” should be stopped, and directed his ire to the handful of Swedish citizens reported to be fighting in Iraq and Syria.
“You guys can’t stay there. Sweden is no longer your home, this country built on Christian principles.”
“A vote for us is never wasted, it sends a clear signal to the other parties that they want change, for example regarding immigration policy,” he said.
As an infidel I resent my tweets being hijacked by the Islamic crescent.
Will Twitter gift Christians and Jews with automatic Christmas and Hanukkah hashtag emojis? A manger and a menorah for example?
Or will they cast symbols representing those religious holidays aside in fear of offending muslims who make use of their respective hashtags?
Sacrificing women on the altar of political correctness. Keep molly coddling the islamic savages [Sweden], and the next thing you know they will be raping your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters and girlfriends right in front of you and/or anyone else who happens by. And it will eventually be against the law to fight back or report the crime. Because that is exactly where you are headed.
Mark. My. Words.
(Fria Tider (Free Times), translated by Frau Katze) –Sweden Democrat Party politician Michael Hess of Karlskrona was sentenced today (May 8, 2014) to a fine for hate speech after having connected the religion of Islam with rape.
According to the judgment, the statement is not part of a “factual and authoritative discussion” and it thus it does not matter whether or not the statement is true.
The indictment concerned a comment on Facebook that Hess wrote next to an article in Aftonbladet, which was about women who were raped in Tahrir Square in Cairo.
“When are you journalists going to realize that it is deeply ingrained in Islamic culture to rape and mistreat those women who do not abide by the teachings of Islam? [Data] is widely available showing the connection between the rapes in Sweden and number of migrants from Middle Eastern and North African countries,” wrote the SD politician.
Hess, who has lived in the Middle East for eleven years, argued that the comment did in fact initiate a debate and persuade journalists to examine the phenomenon more deeply.
As proof of his innocence, Michael Hess including a summary of studies showing that men with ancestry from Muslim countries are very much overrepresented in Swedish rape statistics. This includes official figures from the National Council, which show that men from North Africa and Iraq are involved in rapes 23 and 20 times more often than Swedes.
Fined 32,000 krona
Alderman Lise-Lotte Backstrom and the three Social Democratic jurors at Blekinge District Court, however, took no account of the politician’s objections, and fined him 32,000 krona ($4,900 US) for “hate speech”.
“It is [...] apparent to the court that Michael Hess has meant for readers of his commentary to read the entire statement in the same context and thus readers will get the impression that it is Islamic beliefs that lie behind the rapes when the perpetrators are of Middle Eastern or North African origin. The statement expresses a blatant disrespect towards Islamic immigrants,” reads the judgment.
Hess’s statement is not to be regarded as “part of an objective criticism” and the research that Hess had referred to during the trial is irrelevant.
It does not matter if the statement is true
The court notes that “the question of whether Michael Hess’s statement is true, or at least for Michael Hess appeared to be true, is irrelevant to the proceedings.” The reason is that the SD politician submitted research support after [making the statement on Facebook].
In order for the statement to be classified as “objective criticism” Hess would have had to refer to any relevant research directly in the Facebook post.
“At the time [of the initial statement] , Michael Hess made no reference either to established research or Islamic sources. It is only in connection with his prosecution that he has sought to demonstrate support from research and religious writings. The District Court therefore finds that it is clear that Michael Hess’s statement has not been a part in an objective and authoritative discussion.”
Watch how the cowardly manager runs from the press and sics a guard on them. Guilt is written all over her face.
Questions that immediately come to mind:
Is she hiding something?
Is she protecting someone?
Has she been threatened?
Who owns the complex?
Is resident Duy Tran being singled out?
If so, why?
(KHOU) –WEBSTER, Texas — A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight. Stepping onto Duy Tran’s balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: “It means a lot to me,” he said. He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down. “What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.” We tried to ask a manager if that’s exactly what was said, but she just handed us a statement, refused to answer any questions, and called an officer to escort us off the property, before we could press any further:
“While the Lodge on El Dorado admires our resident’s patriotism, we must enforce our property rules and guidelines. Such guidelines maintain the aesthetics of our apartment community and provide for the safety of all residents. The apartment community already proudly displays our country’s flag in a safe and appropriate manner at the entrances to our community.” [Zero mention about the "threat to the muslim community" --VH]
But we saw other patriotic symbols hanging from other balconies in the complex, and Tran doesn’t plan to budge. “I’m gonna leave my flag there, as an American, until she shows me proof that I don’t have the right to leave my flag there,” said Tran. To Tran it’s about so much more than stars and stripes. “I have friends that died for this country,” he said. So he says this fight is the least he can do. We have not heard of any residents complaining about any flags at the complex, or any of the patriotic items we saw. In fact, we spoke to several neighbors who say they want Tran’s flag to stay.
She’s right though, the American flag and all it stands for is a threat to the anti-freedom muslim community. Forever may it wave, over the land of the free and the home of the brave.
If this flag offends you, I’ll help you pack.
UPDATE: The apartment complex (The Lodge On El Dorado) has released another statement which also does not address the ‘muslim issue’. They are being eviscerated in the comments.
Gestapo-like police authorities arrested a blonde-haired native Britisher for the crime of mocking Islam. He was wearing a burka costume during an anti-Islamization protest. Watch it all the way to the end. The protester gets downright William Wallace shouting for liberty and freedom, and against politically tyranny.
“Are we not allowed to do anything political in this country any more?! This is meant to be a free country! This is not equality!”
(Patriots_Of_Britain) –Muslims eat our food, drink our water, take shelter in our lands and for what?.. To disrespect our culture, insult our fallen war hero’s and terrorize local natives?
They spread hate through their schools and Mosques against Non-Believers and White Westerners.
They have extra benefits and do not have to pay simple things that we have been forced to pay, like bedroom tax for example as it is classed as their ”prayer room”. [...]
