I reported on Monday that the Swedish Post Office refused to deliver the party newspaper of Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats) because it contained one of Lars Vilks’ Modoggie drawings.
Now a private delivery service has also refused to deliver the SD newspaper. According to today’s Sydsvenskan:
New boycott of materials from SD
Swedish Direct Commercial has also said no to distributing a campaign newspaper of the Sweden Democrats in Svedala, according to a press release from the Sweden Democrats.
Earlier the Post Office decided not to distribute the latest number of SD-Kuriren since it contains drawings Mohammed by artist Lars Vilks.

The Post Office sees it as a security risk. Swedish Direct Commercial has stated that they only distribute political information to the parties currently in parliament, says SD in the press release.
“That both the Post Office and its number of competitor refuses to hand out information from a specific political party is a serious threat against the democratic right to form an opinion,” says the chairman of SD, Jimmie Åkesson.
Sweden is not a dictatorship. It does not officially censor Sverigedemokraterna. Yet somehow SD — the only party in the country that criticizes the official Multicultural immigration policies — always seems to be on the receiving end of restrictions, boycotts, official impediments, and even physical attacks.
Funny about that.
