How this will affect the Sweden Democrats, an anti-Muslim immigration party that is soaring in popularity?
A new law will come into effect in Sweden after Christmas 2014, that will allow people to beÂ prosecuted for criticizing immigrationÂ or politician’s unwillingness to tackle the issue.
The Constitutional Committee’s report has been voted for in parliament, seen in aÂ letterÂ from the Parliamentary Offices.Â Member of Parliament Andrew NorlÃ©n, 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 aÂ signalÂ is transmitted in the community that theÂ internetÂ is not a lawless country, the sheriff is back in town” NorlÃ©n said during a one-sided ‘debate’ on the issue in Swedish parliament.
ThisÂ newÂ law is meant to stop Swedish people from complaining about their country being turned into a third world nation.
Without freedom of speech there can be no democracy. If you are not allowed to say certain things then parties that support yourÂ ideasÂ cannot exist and Sweden is at high risk of turning into a communist USSR-like country.
