Our Swedish correspondent Freedom Fighter sends his translation of an article from Aftonbladet about a hockey referee who has been suspended for — gasp! — posting a Motoon on his Facebook page.
The translator includes this note: “Yet again, politically correct stupidity is punishing people for legal freedom of expression.”
Hockey referee suspended by the Swedish Hockey Association over cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed on his Facebook page
A Swedish Premier Division hockey referee published a caricature of the Prophet Mohammed on Facebook.
Now he has been suspended and, according to sources, SÄPO [the security police] were contacted.
“We had a meeting with this person and we agree that he should take a time out,” said Swedish Hockey Association’s security chief Peter Anderson.
It was just before Christmas when Swedish Hockey Association Awards and Safety Manager Peter Anderson called in the premier hockey referee for a personal meeting. Sport manager Mikael Lundström was also at the meeting held in the Association’s office at the Globe.
According to Sportbladet the referee was confronted with information that he published a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed on his Facebook page. The Security manager also had a transcript of the page
“The referee admitted that he posted the picture and referred to the right to freedom of expression,” said a source.
Association Managers pressed the referee on the question of whether he was a racist — which he strongly denied.
“Had a meeting”
Sport chief Mikael Lundström confirm that the meeting took place but referred all questions to the head of security.
Peter Anderson would not comment, but later gave a brief comment.
“We had a meeting with a person who is a district referee. During the meeting, we agreed he should take time out the rest of the season. For reasons which I definitely do not want to go into,” says Peter Anderson.
But how do you assess the security risks?
“I would not comment on anything in that particular case.
Are you working with SÄPO?
“I have no other comments.
“I want to ask you a question: where did you get the information from?
No one at the area or regional level will comment on the case, which is considered very sensitive.
Contact with SÄPO
According to Sportbladet, the Hockey Association has had contact with the Security Police concerning the potential threat that publishing the cartoon can bring.
Last night the Security Service would neither confirm nor deny reports that they were involved in the case.
The referee could not be reached for a comment.
Of course if he had material assaulting Christianity itself, or the person of Jesus of Nazareth, or the Bishop of Rome he would be applauded as a bold freethinker and any objectors would be called bigots.
Of course though, there is a valid issue and a particularly damning admission here: namely, that offending the Mohammadans is deadly business.
If muslims attack hockey in Sweden, Swedes will instantly turn against muslims in their entirety. At all cost, the progressives of universal interfaith dialogue will steer government resources into keeping the ‘bread and butter’ Swedes ignorant of the terrible cancer of islam that has been inflicted upon Swedes by fully islamic conscious international migration plans laid out by fiat through UN directives and behind the scenes deal making (in plain view) by transnational Clubs such as the Club of Rome, Madrid and Budapest.
These people know what happens when muslims migrate. They know that massive suffering will occur due to the direct link between the quran and behavior.
The ruling class of Europe, after 1400 years of secretly pining for a way to have the glory muslim sultans had, a permanent serf society mandated by God. The feudal system broke down when people began to read the bible for themselves.
Read the Earth Charter co authored by Strong and Gorbachev. Ask yourself if it fits the Christian who values individual rights or a muslim who supports shariah.
This civilizational war is being fought against any people with a semblance of free will left in them. Our ruling class will no longer tolerate a king higher than them. Unless its a god that ensures might makes right as a core value. The only way the peons will stand for it is if they all share the same faith thus accepting their place because allah wills it.
This is an artificial quickening of the conditions necessary for pure, unadulterated hell on earth.
The only people looking forward to that are those who have already insulated themselves from the fray.
Stupid swedes make me ashamed to have roots from their country. Oh well, I’m taking pills for it.
Van Grungy you got that right, we are fighting a entire civilization (although they aren’t civilized) and we are fighting our own political/ruling classes so we can retain our freedom. Part of the problem is that so many people are afraid to fight because they think nuclear weapons are going to be used. Well not resisting the Moslems and the left will ensure that yes eventually (probably sooner then anyone expects) nuclear weapons will be used. Islam can’t be defeated with a Cold War type approach, if you take a good hard look at the world communism is raising its head and is proving that we didn’t win the Cold War, we only won round one. Future generations are going to look back at us and ask why we couldn’t see what was happening and why we had to wait until peaceful solutions were no longer an option before we started fighting.
I understand your frustration, but be careful about saying such things. You’ll find the same exact ‘stupidity’ thriving in the US government and academia.
The only difference is that America’s long dead Founding Fathers had the wisdom and foresight to constitutionally ensure freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Swedes do not have such liberty to speak as freely. Combine that with a Swedish media that is more than compliant in keeping people ignorant of politically inconvenient truths and you can see that is is not a matter of the people’s choosing. They are being betrayed and sold out.
svenskamerikan: On balance, I agree with you that the U.S. is (becoming) in the same sad shape as Sweden.
BUT, as an American, I want to be clear that no one (including the Founding Fathers) gave Americans their freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
Rather, the earliest Americans and their leaders fought the British to achieve freedom and then fought to codify that freedom (derived from GOD) forever in law.
The real question is whether free peoples have the WILL to fight for their freedom in the modern world.
Free peoples already understand that Muslims have the WILL to fight for human slavery imposed by Allah and Sharia Law.
Do free peoples have the WILL to fight against Allah and Sharia Law – with all of the financial and physical sacrifice that the fight will entail, or will free peoples die as slaves to Allah – and Muslims?
Please remember, most of the signers of the American Declaration of Independence risked everything – and indeed lost everything – in order to win the American Revolutionary War.
Are free peoples today similarly willing to sacrifice their present safety and high standard of living to guarantee the future freedom of their children?
Unfortunately, I genuinely question the resolve of free peoples to meet the challenges posed by Islam. Most free peoples refuse to even honestly examine the issue – let alone actively fight for freedom.
Taking a page from Ayn Rand, all free peoples of America and Europe must refuse to support leaders and/or societies that enable Muslims to enslave free peoples.
