An urgent message (which I just updated with more information) from my friend Ted Ekeroth of the Sweden Democrats:
Yet another dire event in Sweden and a major setback for freedom of speech.
Let's first start with a part of the press statement we just made:
Sweden Democrats' planned public meetings in Norrköping, Karlstad, Eskilstuna, have in all cases been cancelled by the police after they informed us that they are unable to guarantee the safety of speakers.
This morning, a planned square meeting with party secretary, Björn Söder, in Norrköping was cancelled.
In Eskilstuna, Björn Söder was met by a large group of Left-wing extremist counter-demonstrators. That meeting was also aborted by advice from the police. In spite of police escort, the vehicle that the party secretary and other Sweden Democrats were travelling in on their way from the square was attacked with kicks and spit.
After a long wait for a go-ahead from the police to carry out the planned square meeting in Karlstad, the party leader for the Sweden Democrat Jimmie Åkesson was informed late afternoon that the police do not intend to prevent the left extremists who gathered on site from disrupting the meeting, including throwing eggs and voicing their threats. The police told the Sweden Democrats that the meeting must be cancelled.
Jimmie Åkesson, Sverigedemokraterna, comments:
- It is very remarkable that Left-wing extremists time and time again during the election campaign are allowed to stop us from delivering our message. The events in Karlstad are unfortunately one example out of many of how the Left-wing extremists and their violent methods have won over the police [who] no longer are able to upheld law and order in the country.
The Sweden Democrats will file a complaint to the Justice "ombudsmannen," or JO, against the police.
Thus, [Ted continues], the police have officially given up in the face of Left-wing fascism. We are not allowed to hold election meetings, just a few days away from the election day (Sunday).
The full press statement (in Swedish) can be found here.
Please pass this on and spread as much as you can.*
*Because, of course, the "Free World" media won't.
Sweden, a sovereign Western democracy, relinquishes control of national elections to its Leftist-Arab "street" and the world snores.
