Last week I posted about Henrik Ræder Clausen’s candidacy for the European Parliament as a member of the Danish People’s Party.
Here is a presentation by Kent Ekeroth, who is one of several candidates from Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats) standing in the EU elections on June 7th. I have met Kent on several occasions, and he was part of the Swedish delegation at our meeting in Copenhagen earlier this month.
The text below was kindly translated into English by our Swedish correspondent CB.
Protect our freedom, stop Islamization!
by Kent Ekeroth
This is my presentation before the elections to the European parliament 2009.
I was born in Malmö but grew up in Halmstad and Lund.
I have a Master’s Degree in Business from the University of Lund, and among things I have studied and worked in Australia for a year, 2004. In addition I was an intern at the Swedish embassy in Israel, during the autumn of 2006. Since 2007 I have been the international secretary of Sweden Democrats, and my job is to create contacts with parties and organizations abroad. Among other things I have been responsible for contacts with AEN, where we recently were accorded the status of observers.
In addition I work with our party’s criminal policy group and our EU-group that has formed our EU-manifesto. Besides that I’m a substitute in the Lund municipal council.

|Current status:||Candidate for Sweden Democrats|
Matters I want to pursue in the framework of the EU:
Resisting the Islamization of Europe
– – – – – – – – –
Europe is confronted with an ever-rapid Islamization, which of course has its basis in a very liberal immigration policy, which is enhanced by a high level of illegal immigration.
The effects of a growing Muslim minority in Europe have become painfully obvious, in Sweden as in the rest of Europe. We can see ever more signs of countries adapting to increasing Muslim demands, adjustments to school lunches, multicultural holidays, and gender-segregated bath houses. We have so called “no-go zones” where police, the fire department, ambulances, etc. can’t go without being attacked. We see violent crimes sky-rocketing. It is happening in several European countries; France, where among things have daily car fires occur, and which has a population consisting of 10 % Muslims; England is perhaps the worst-off country in Europe, where sharia has become a part of the official law of the land and whose flag was removed from its prisons so the Muslim inmates wouldn’t be “upset”. In the Netherlands, as is well-known, we have seen politicians and filmmakers being murdered as a result of their criticism of Islam. Amsterdam is expected to have a Muslim majority soon.
The list could go on at length. What is obvious with these developments is that we will soon see our freedoms and our Western society eroded, to the advantage of the totalitarian, misogynistic, violent, and oppressive ideology that is Islam.
Even today we see that the EU totally doesn’t understand the danger we face. They in fact, among other things, seriously discuss importing 50 million African immigrants to Europe.
Europe needs to wake up. And I intend to wake them if I’m elected to the European parliament.
Cancel agreements that threaten Sweden’s sovereignty and self determination
With amendments to the EU since the beginning of Sweden’s entry, Sweden has relinquished ever more of its sovereignty and self-determination. An example of this is Euratom-agreement that Sweden has already signed. In brief, the agreement says that Sweden’s natural resources, are “the community’s property”, that is, the EU’s. Sweden sits on thousands of billions of Swedish krona in assets, just of uranium oxide, which is used in nuclear power. According to the agreements that Sweden has already entered into, this is now the community’s property.
Furthermore, the Sweden Democrats recently launched a campaign to save Sweden’s cultural landscapes [mostly refers to varying but typical Swedish landscapes that many people feel it’s important to preserve], which are put under pressure by the EU.
There are several agreements and decisions from the EU that Sweden has to cancel right away or to obtain exceptions from. The above exemplifies that. This is an important area to struggle for within the framework of the EU.
These are matters that are can be best dealt with at home, that is that Sweden with her own hand cancels the agreements. But those matters can also be treated within the EU framework,where Sweden negotiates exceptions or the like. In either case I can pursue these matters from the EU parliament on both fronts, both in Sweden and the EU.
Matters to be dealt with in Sweden
Withdrawal from the EU’s political union
A natural priority is that Sweden shall withdraw from the political union that is the EU. Through working in the machinery of the EU, and thereby getting direct information and knowledge of all that is happening in the EU, I can purse an opinion in Sweden — for a Swedish withdrawal. I intend to do that.
Vote June 7th
The EU influences Sweden more and more. Even if Sweden has only about 20 places in the EU parliament (depending on what treaty that will apply) and limited influence, it is important to show what one thinks about the EU and its development.
A vote for the Sweden Democrats is a vote for Sweden’s independence, to return power to Sweden and the Swedes, so that we have the ability to decide our own future.
