EVIL RACIST VIKANGZ
A 2019 article of Prime Minister Stefan Löfven's speech on International Holocaust Remembrance Day states that “We have started the work of strengthening the law forbidding racist symbols […]”
More details on the government’s position on the inquiry into the potential impact racist symbols may have on ethnic minorities can be found, in Swedish, in a release presented in July 2018 . When reviewing the PDF file with committee terms regarding the inquiry, which is set to be reported on by the committee by May 31, 2019, we find that it discusses the possibility of penal implications against the usage of "racist and similar symbols” by extremist groups, which may negatively impact ethnic groups. Criminal responsibility and criminal law and legislation possibly regulating the usage of said symbols is up for examination in the inquiry.
We find in the text on the committee terms (translated into English):
“The text of the law does not specify which different forms of statements and other message issues can be pervasive against the ethnic group. However, it appears that the messages do not have to be verbal but can also consist of eg. gestures or pictures […] The legal situation was previously considered unclear when it comes to the question of whether the bearing of certain symbols is such an expression that can fall under the criminal responsibility.”
But what are the symbols they are concerned with? Reading further into the committee terms there is direct mention of the Odal rune, the Tyr/Tiwaz rune, the eagle, and the laurel wreath, and the misappropriation of these symbols by some extremist groups. However, the text also states that other unnamed symbols may be of concern if the committee deems them so.
Finally, the committee text states that one of the possible outcomes from the inquiry could be: “the option of introducing a special ban on public use of certain symbols as punishment for incitement against ethnic groups.”
Some Swedish groups are rallying against the suggestion of any possible chance of a prohibition on this issue because they see the runes and Norse symbols as an important part of their shared history. As RT reports, “The Nordic Asa-Community, the largest heathen religious group in Sweden, has spoken out against any government efforts to police Sweden’s ancient heritage, arguing that “prejudices and misunderstandings are best cured with knowledge and facts.””
wtf wiccan fags doubling down on libcuck "logic"? Gay. These fags would be thrown in a bog in the old days.
The Swedish Constitution protects freedom of religion, which could mean problems as the Nordic Asa-Community, which organizes the Asatru religion also uses these symbols, and states that a possible ban would “wipe out a part of our own history, culture and beliefs – and our freedom of expression.”
A petition against the alleged ban, which, as you’ll remember is just one possible outcome from the inquiry, was started by the Nordic Asa-Community and had more than 14,000 signatures as of Thursday. According to Voice of Europe , there will also be a manifestation held outside Parliament in Stockholm on Friday May 24 by people concerned with this issue.
apologies for potential bad format etc., it's been a while.
