Regular readers are familiar with the Swedish artist Dan Park, whose exhibitions of anti-Islamic art have been banned for their “hateful” content. In the past he has been arrested and convicted of hets mot folkgrupp, “agitation against an ethnic group”.
Mr. Park has just positioned himself for another run-in with the Swedish Stasi. Yesterday the Swedish version of PEGIDA staged a demo in Malmö, the most culturally-enriched city in Sweden. Mr. Park gave a speech at the rally, and held up a defiant banner.
Many thanks to Peter Seier Christensen for recording this video, to Liberty DK for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
Liberty DK attended the event in Malmö and wrote the following account, a slightly different version of which was published earlier today at Vlad Tepes:
I was at the Swedish Pegida demonstration this past Saturday and it was quite an experience. I always attend the For Frihed demonstrations in Denmark (every Monday) where we are surrounded by a couple of hundred police officers holding off several hundred antifa thugs throwing stuff at us.
In this case there weren’t as many Swedish police, but these ones on the ground had horses and dogs, and I saw several people being led away. We were also well-protected by double rows of metal fencing with a building at the back. They were shouting things such as “PEGIDA you can go” and so on. A veritable sea of fingers constantly waving everywhere from the “peaceful” counter demonstrators.
I did have one funny experience: I was showing the two-finger peace sign and there was one young protester at the front who caught my eye as he was showing the peace sign as well, though in a way so as not to be seen by the others. I even got a smile so there was support to a small degree. In any case, we held our speeches with controversial artist Dan Park as the last speaker. Then Dan Park and another of our group went forward with a banner that read “Islam = Fascism”. This was apparently too much for the police and they immediately confiscated the banner.
After the demonstration they pulled Dan Park aside. I was watching from the sidelines, and was discussing with him about the banner. They were also asking why he was wearing the star of David and he said that he was showing it in support of the Jewish people. In any case they didn’t arrest him, but he was called in for questioning (interrogation) not once, but twice this coming week.
It is not unlikely that he will again end up in jail which he already has been a couple of times because his art does not adhere to the Swedish politically correct narrative.
According to Liberty DK, seven works of art by Dan Park will be destroyed by the Swedish state.
|00:20||It’s good to be back let me hear you scream. Yeah!|
|00:24||Let me hear you scream. You can do it|
|00:36||I have a dream.|
|00:40||Somebody said, but reality is no dream.|
|00:48||It is said that Sweden is a secular country.|
|00:51||Yes, it was a long time ago we were ruled by religion.|
|00:57||So why should we grovel for a foreign religion called Islam?|
|01:02||Islam is a reality-denying and hateful ideology|
|01:06||where homophobia, Jew-hatred and contempt for women|
|01:10||are the pillars, and which is spread globally through violence by its follows.|
|01:19||They constantly demand special treatment and say that they are offended when they are treated like others.|
|01:25||And Sweden goes along with this! That is insanity.|
|01:31||Yes, here Muslims who discriminate against others get paid reparations and the victims are prosecuted.|
|01:44||Satire artists and artists who dare criticize and make jokes about Islam|
|01:49||live under the constant threat of being killed,|
|01:52||which also has happened in Holland, Paris and Copenhagen.|
|01:58||Self-censorship is rampant because of fear of this dangerous ideology.|
|02:05||Islam-critics who are not murdered are instead punished by the Swedish state.|
|02:14||Islam has been compared to Nazism and the similarities are striking.|
|02:23||The difference is that Hitler wasn’t a paedophile as the prophet Mohammed was.|
|02:27||Nazism doesn’t encourage sex with children the way Islam does.|
|02:32||Nazi symbols are forbidden to show publicly,|
|02:37||but the symbols of Islam can be shown freely without problem.|
|02:42||This is hypocritical.|
|02:45||You, who stand here screaming against us,|
|02:48||why do you support this insanity?|
|02:51||Are you satisfied with the blood on your hands?|
|02:56||Thank you from me.|
|02:58||We’ll be back.
