A 64-year-old man in Skåne Hörby was reported by the Näthats Examiner after posting a satire image about child marriage in Islam on Facebook. Now the man is sentenced to a fine for the breach of opinion against the public. (FYI – the image isn’t satire at all, but an accurate portrayal a centuries-old Islamic practice of paedophile marriage that is widespread in certain countries and even encouraged for Muslims today)
Friatider (h/t Marvin W) The satire image was drawn by the cartoonist Jan-Erik Ander and shows two men with beard and turban. One man is holding a pram with a small child, and the other asks: “Grandchild?”– No, this is my new wife! the man answers the baby carriage.
The 64-year-old man posted the image in a closed Facebook group on February 21, 2017, where users discussed the childhood pointers in Islam. In a comment to the picture, the man wrote that Muslims were “a pedophile, they must be stopped and no access to Europe”.
The report was filed in October by the tax-funded Network Inspector. The police investigated the 64-year-old after consulting his “contact person” Robin Enander on the Left-wing Legal Affairs Front.
In hearing at the police station in Hörby, the man acknowledged the facts, but denied crimes. “It was mostly fun, it was not so bad meant. I usually keep up with humor and thought it was humor. I’ve posted the image as humorous, he said, among other things.
Chamber prosecutor Mathias Larsson charged the man for both the satir image and the commentary to the image. According to the prosecutor, the post indicated that the 64-year-old “threatened or expressed disagreement with the public or other group of persons on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin or creed”.
Lund’s District Court makes the same assessment of “the entire text, with both text and image”.
“The district court is of the opinion that the speech expresses a clear contempt for people with Muslim creed. It implies that Muslims would generally be pedophiles and that pedophilia would be part of the religion of Islam. It has also been designed in an abusive and unsuspecting manner and does not invite some profound religion-critical discussion, “the court writes.
The crime is not bad, the district court determines who condemns the man for conditional sentence with 60 daily fines of SEK 50 for hatred against the public.
Another woman in Sweden was interrogated by police, had her DNA taken and was subsequently imprisoned for the “crime” of sharing a joke meme about Islam on Facebook.
Infowars The 32-year-old woman from Gothenburg drew the attention of authorities after she posted the image below, which depicts a Muslim man having his brain removed and then being wrapped in Islamic head dress.
A reporter alerted police to the post, claiming that the woman had expressed herself “in a threatening manner” towards a protected group. The reporter passed on details of the woman’s identity and her place of residence. The woman was then asked to visit a police station in Gothenburg, where her DNA was taken and entered into a criminal database.
The woman profusely apologized for the post, however, Gothenburg prosecutor Sara Toreskog decided to proceed with charges of hate speech and the woman now faces two years in prison.
During the interrogation, authorities asked her about her thoughts on Sweden’s “multicultural society” and whether she had “something against Muslims”.
Last year, a 70-year-old Swedish woman was prosecuted for hate speech for saying she saw migrants setting fire to cars, something that happens all the time in Sweden.
Another 60-year-old Swede faces up to two years in prison over a Facebook post in which he said Somalis typically have low IQs, despite this technically being correct.
Swedish police officer Peter Springare is also under investigation for merely observing that “foreign-born offenders” are largely responsible for the country’s gang rape problem.
Last year, Sweden put YouTube star PewDiePie, their biggest export since Abba and Ikea furniture, on an official hate list.
A left wing group in the country is collecting social media posts and attempting to track down the authors for their “crimes of opinion.” The group has been mainly successful in exposing elderly people for “inciting hate” on social media.
