After Christmas, it will be possible for prosecutors to take criminal action against  Swedes who criticize immigrants or people in authority online after a Constitutional Committee’s report on the matter has been voted in parliament, seen in a letter from the Parliamentary Offices .

Member of Parliament Andrew Norlén (M), member of the Constitutional Committee, has been pushing the issue and he says it will rapidly become a deterrent.

I do not think it takes very many prosecutions before a signal is transmitted in the community that the internet is not a lawless country – the sheriff is back in town, said Andreas Norlén, during an unchallenged debate the issue in parliament.

With the change in the law no longer will “slanderous” comments be made without  prosecution which is expected to lead to more charges of libel and slander brought.

People who are especially helped by the new law are immigrants, LGBTQ people and government officials, who can now let prosecutors pursue a common insult to the public prosecution. Frequently Swedes are not covered by the new law.

The full parliament endorses legislative changes, which will be partially introduced in the summer but fully only in January after the election, when the constitutional changes proposed require.

  1. Mark Ferguson

    What manner of madness prevails in the minds of bleeding-heart, guilt-ridden ‘liberals’, like Andreas Norlen, who wish to see Sweden and, indeed, all Anglo-European societies to be overrun with millions and millions of non-Europeans? This, inspite of the overwhelming reality – from the mid 1960s – that wherever mass numbers of sub-Saharan Africans and Muslims have settled in have witnessed their social structures become sociologically frayed.

    For those familar with the train trip from Gare du Nord to Charles De Gaul Airport, are only too aware that the score of surburbs heading north and, spreading east and west , are inundated with non-Europeans. So much so, that it now seems as though the 3rd World has been transplanted into the Old World.

    Meanwhile, in EVERY major city in Europe, such as London, Paris, Madrid, Lisbon or Rome you will witness hundreds of thousands of Africans wandering aimlessly around their downtown environs. Or, worse still, how thye’ve occupied swathes of suburbs; turning them into no-go zones!

    If all of the aforementioned is ‘CULTURALLY ENRICHING’ then how crazy have some of us become?

    But what causes some people to end up like this?

    This prevails for two reasons and they are guilt and self-hatred. With respect of guilt: Because a number of European nations colonised parts of the globe between 1400-1850 equates to them believing that the only way ‘we’ [Caucasians] can be completely absolved of ‘our’ sins is to totally surrender Western nations to the throngs of the world’s dispossessed.
    As for hate: Initially, it begins with self-hatred, but soon manifests into extreme hatred for anyone who dosen’t agree with their views.

    For instance, in France and Britain on average 50% of rapists; 62% of murderers and 65% of drug dealers emenate from African or Muslim backgrounds. Furthermore, 80% of persons from those ethnic/cultural climes in all the European nations that they now exist in, are totally dependant upon welfare to survive. Estimates of the accrued costs that these groups bring to bear upon the EU is 150 billion euros. But even so, threcherous cretins like Andreas Norlen campaign for borders to be dismantled and allow unfettered access to the West.

    So given that there would be at least billion of the planet’s population that live in severely oppressed and desperately poor lands must mean that, there are 2 billion ‘potential’ asylum-seekers. The 2 billion, of course, is more than 3.5 times Europes present combined populations. So, given this reality , which of the 2 billion will guilt-ridden fools like Andreas Norlen eventually deny access to?
