The head of an online ‘hate speech’ monitoring group, “Näthatsgranskaren,” Tomas Åberg, receives tax funds for ratting out pensioners and others who write critically about Muslim migration on Facebook. And now he claims that his reports to the police have resulted in almost 150 hate speech convictions, a ten-fold increase.
Voice of Europe (h/t TherezaB) “1,218 police reports 2017-2018. 144 hate speech sentences, from 214 notifications. Many are waiting for prosecution!”, writes “Näthatsgranskaren” (The Online Hate Speech Monitor) on Twitter. The group also states that its state-financed operations have led to a tenfold increase in the number of hate speech convictions in Sweden, reports Fria Tider.
Over the year, they further “researched, collaborated, and lectured on, among others, the Council of Europe’s conference on criminal online hate speech”, they claim. The authority MUCF, which finances left-wing extremist organisations such as Expo, has so far granted just over €150.000 in contributions to the Online Hate Speech Monitor.
Dare express those views, even on the Internet, and you can now be more easily prosecuted under a new that went into full effect in 2015, which allows anti-immigration Internet commenters in Sweden to be tracked down and persecuted.
One of Sweden’s biggest newspapers, Expressen, used criminal hackers to break into Disqus and get the email addresses and identities of commenters online, and to reveal the persons behind the nicknames or anonymous user IDs. The newspaper sent a reporter and a cameraman to one person’s home and asked them about things they had written on different websites. Expressen published the names and photos of some people, which led to at least one person losing his job.
As Fria Tider (Free Times) reported in a piece entitled “New Law Makes it Easier to Prosecute Those Who Offend Immigrants or Those in Power,” “The crime of ‘insult’ will be prosecuted — but only for giving offense to immigrants, LGBTQ persons or authorities … [under a] common insult to the public prosecution.”
As CBN reported in a piece entitled “Soviet Sweden? Model Nation Sliding to Third World”:
Sweden’s leftist establishment and media believe a cornerstone of their perfect society is multiculturalism — large-scale mostly Muslim immigration from some of the poorest, most backward nations on Earth — and Swedes who disagree with that plan risk being labeled racist, fascist, even Nazi.
“Immigration is the starting point and the finishing point. It’s the most important point to prove you’re friendly toward foreigners, you’re friendly toward immigration,” Danish journalist Mikael Jalving, author of the book Absolut Sweden, said. And if it can be “proven” that you don’t support immigration, “you’re out of the game,” says Jalving.
One U.N. report says Sweden will be a third-world nation in about 15 years, below Libya and Bulgaria. As CBN reported:
Sweden’s immigration model is failing miserably … test scores in Swedish schools are plummeting … [and] crime in some areas has skyrocketed. Immigrants burned the Stockholm suburb of Husby for over a week last year. Many Jews now live in fear of attacks by Muslim immigrants and are leaving.
Amun Abdullahi, a journalist for Swedish radio, left last year and returned to her native Somalia after she was attacked in the Swedish media over her news report about radical Muslim immigrants in Sweden. She told Swedish television that Mogadishu was safer than then immigrant areas in Stockholm.
As for Sweden’s new law, it’s designed to target näthatare, which, I understand, translates into “net haters.” Yet as The New Republic’s Benjamin Birnbaum points out in “Sweden’s Free-Speech Charade,” hate is whatever the Swedish thought police say it is — at the particular moment in question.
Here are some examples:
A 74-year-old woman in Stockholm was prosecuted and fined for a Facebook post in which she criticized the number of African migrants arriving in Sweden.
According to the prosecution, the woman responded to an article about African immigrants by writing, “Why do these individuals not go home to Africa again.” The woman also wrote other posts that the prosecution said were “negative to Muslims and immigration.”
The pensioner was convicted for “breach of opinion against a public group” and will now have to pay a fine of 12,250 SEK (around $1500 dollars).
A 55-year-old man who wrote on Facebook that Muslim migrants, “account for a lot of gang crime in Sweden and other violent stuff like rapes” was put on trial and fined $1,265 dollars.
Another 65-year-old woman was criminally charged for “hate against a group of people” after writing on Facebook that mass immigration will cause Sweden’s IQ levels to fall to the level of goldfish.
In another case, a woman was interrogated by police, had her DNA taken and was subsequently imprisoned for the “crime” of sharing a joke meme about Islam on Facebook.
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.
