Our Swedish correspondent LN sends this digest of information about a hate-speech case that went to trial today in Jönköping:
A 65-year-old lady wrote that the IQ level is going to fall — she is now being prosecuted for hate speech against (some undefined) group of foreign people (hets mot folkgrupp).

In 2016 the 65-year-old woman from Jönköping was attacked without provocation, brutalized, severely hurt and beaten unconscious by a group of youngish culture-enrichers; she is now charged with a hate crime against some undefined folk-group — probably Arabs — for writing on Facebook among some other things (eight in all = prison) that immigration will lead to a general lowering of the IQ level in Sweden in the future.
The accusations of hate-speech are nowadays flooding Swedish courts. In particular, prosecutors seem to be deterring elderly people who may more easily be silenced and who are not inclined to vigorously defend themselves in court.
This currently accused lady is said to have written several so-called subversive posts on both immigration and immigrants. She has also directed her remarks at the Muslim community.
“If this inflow continues, intelligence in Sweden will sink to the goldfish level,” allegedly wrote in one of her posts. The posts were all allegedly written last year on the Facebook page “Stop Abuse of Power”.
Chamber Prosecutor Lisa Hedberg notes [sic] that the number of investigations of hate speech has increased since the blog “Network Examiner” started systematically searching for and reporting “hate-filled” internet posts, often written by elderly Swedes.
The trial against the woman is being held in Jönköping on Wednesday March 14th. The 65-year-old obviously has denied the crimes.
