When I gave a speech at a Swedish Democrats meeting some years ago, we were protected by a dozen armed police men and women inside the building, and outside there were also a dozen police cars blocking and patrolling the area. Reading the Swedish news, there is no doubt that the vast, vast majority of political violence is against the Islam-critical Swedish Democrats, which became Sweden’s third biggest party at the latest elections. Translated from Sveries Radia, via 10news.dk (click to subscribe and support):
The amount of violence and threats was higher than ever before during the recent elections. This conclusion is drawn by the police, who now summarize their work in connection with this year’s two elections. In all, more than 2,300 crimes related to the parliamentary elections and European Parliament elections were reported.
…this includes 280 reported cases of violence and more than 300 illegal threats. …
“Protests in themselves have been a challenge for the Swedish police. It is mainly in connection with fringe parties, and preferably on the right side, where we had demonstrations and public meetings and rallies that demanded a different attention from the police, says Johan Branch Fors.
