High ranking politicians exposed of hate speech on swedish hate site


Case of Hate Speech by the Sweedish Democrats all over the media. Swedish democrats have had problems with racism within its elected officials, and the leader of the party has introduced this kind of "no tolerance profile" and two politicians have steped down form their possition and eight are being investigted. Here is an interview with one of the politicians, Marie Stensby, that have been exposed of having expressing hate speech on an online hate news site roughly tranlated "Avpixlat - the un sensored truth". Thousands of previously secret identities on the site's comment fields have been leaked, many of those politicians for the mentioned party. Stensby has been using the nickname "folk culture" on avpixlatand hope to run for parliament in Sweden next year. She referes to muslims as everything from "the invading troops" to "punks" and "swarms of locusts". She continues "A small comfort is that at least locusts move on when the have devoured al that can be eaten where they settle". She is known to have stated "I hope the starve to death" about asylum seeking kids and youth on a hunger strike and "the best for the world would be if sunni and shia muslims just kill each other". Confronted by these comments on the interview she does not take back her comments, but defends herself with "typical for these online sites is that you write things you don't really think through". She runs for parliament either way. On the question "can we have a person that wishes people dead running for parliament elections" she responds, "well, I guess we'll see then." One right wing extremist went to the newspaper who exposed these and threatened that "if you continue writing, I'll be back with a knife". In one of the hate sites exposed by expressen they are threatening certain named journalists of coming to their homes and some are crow funding for a lawsuit. Site is axpixlat.info Picture from interview and with screen dump from her "wish they stave to death"-comment Yes, Lazlo, I have reported it to hate speech watch ;-) http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=no&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=no&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dagbladet.no%2F2013%2F12%2F14%2Fnyheter%2Futenriks%2Frasisme%2Fhoyreekstreme%2Fexpressen%2F30836936%2F
