Far-right confronts main parties with 99 proposals

Far-right confronts main parties with 99 proposals

Speaking ahead of Sunday's parliamentary elections, Åkesson called for his political opponents to at least read his plans.

"We want those who will be our colleagues starting next week to know what to expect from us and what issues we expect to push," he said.

Åkesson unrolled a long scroll of 99 proposals, apparently meant to evoke the 95 Theses that Martin Luther nailed to the door of Wittenberg Cathedral in 1517, launching the Reformation.

Security guards at the parliament stopped him from posting his proposals on the parliament door, but did agree to hand over the scroll to the speaker of parliament.

Recent polls suggest that the party will for the first time break the four-percent threshold required to win seats in parliament.

They might even be handed the role of kingmaker if neither the right or leftwing blocs win a clear majority.

Yet the party was not allowed to take part in the political debates leading up to Sunday's vote.

Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt and his left-wing opponent Mona Sahlin both say they will never cooperate with the anti-immigrant party.

The party won just 2.9 percent of votes in 2006.

Today however, it "has more influence now and they cannot treat us that way anymore," Åkesson told AFP.

The party would win between six and eight percent of the vote, he said, adding: "We are prepared to negotiate with all the parties."

Earlier on Saturday, the far-right party's website was hacked, and only a digitised picture made up of numerals to look like a piece of birthday cake with a lit candle was visible.

By Saturday evening however, the website was working again.

"We have had hacker attacks over the past 24 hours. We have no idea where it is coming from," party spokesman Erik Almqvist told AFP.

"I think it is a shame. Our political opponents should take the debate with us if they disagree with us," Almqvist said.

The attack was not good for democracy, he added.

They won't take the debate because it's a debate they can't win. Would be funny to watch 31 year old Jimmy Åkesson destroy two politicians with twice his age and experience.

The hacking was probably the same fake show as the attack in Malmo. They are corrupt that's they use these methods to gain power. The wolf in sheep's clothing!

When it comes down to it if they actually had any responsibility for any aspect of government people would see how little positive impact they can have. Unfortunately for little Jimmy reality isn't about standing on the sidelines whining about how unfair life is. When he's lived a little longer he might realise this, for the time being he should concentrate on doing some work in the real world.

@Tamale;

Amigo, get your head out of your A..s. No esta bien.

Your "debate" will never happen because no one takes SD's and your views seriously.

Always good to hear the calm voice of reason.

It is interesting that in Swedish English, " far-right ", apparently means being opposed to sticking Sweden's Jewish community in concentration camps and gassing them with Zyklon B and in Swedish English, " far-right ", also apparently means being opposed to introducing the death penalty under Swedish law for mocking the Prophet Mohammad PBUH. Sow the Wind and reap the Whirlwind.

"Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt and his left-wing opponent Mona Sahlin both say they will never cooperate with the anti-immigrant party"

Like most (all?) UK and US politicians both of the above are nothing but chicken sh*ts.

Islam and their pedophile prophets teachings are a cancer on the earth - and really hard to defend, which is why this youngster of just 31 would have torn apart the two look-good-on-paper but too -chicken-to-make-a-change politicians above.

I imagine the debate would have gone something liek this:

How can you say Islam is a curse or that muslim immigration should be stopped?

Islam preached by a pedophile: check.

Behead all those who dont think like you: check.

Ok to rape and kill all those of a different religion: check

Make people antisocial by dressing your wives(!) in a black tent : check

Go to other countries and try to bend them to adjust to you instead of you adjusting to them: check

Take total advantage of the welfare system: check

Breed like... well, you know... :check

Behead people on film:check

Suicide bombers: check

Mass killings and genocide around the world:check

international terrorist acts (not just 9/11) :check

Call for the "wiping out" of a country: check

Religion founded on violence: check

Too many knee-jerk reactions to the SD. They have a right under the ground laws to be heard (just like anyone else including rabid extremist religious people).

SD generally a pretty long way from my political stance, but the main parties are outrageous not to speak to them, if they are democratically elected to hold seats in the house. That's why I will not be voting for anyone... I wouldn't vote for SD in a million years, but I also would never vote for a party that refuses to accept what the public vote decrees.

SD have a serious point, which DOES need addressing. I only hope somebody in one of the main parties realises this soon.

@Porkforeveryone;

If nothing else, I admire your originality. (Not)

The sound you hear is the last bit of air seeping out of your HATE balloon.

The bus is leaving without you.
17:54 September 19, 2010 by RememberAisha
@cowboykodp,

I appreciate your value adding comment (NOT) and I see just like iranboy you too have not addressed any points brought up by Porky (PBUH) ;)

Problem?
18:13 September 19, 2010 by Iraniboy
@PorkForEveryone

I could guess that. This blatant racism and hatred is very uncommon among Swedes because these values are being taught as schools and by parents.

According to SD values you're judged by your appearance and if you're black you're lucky because they believe that your genes are not programmed to rape. You're not Muslim either? Lucky you because they want to ban all Muslims. But you're definitely XYZ and once SD recognise that XYZ is bad and should beb anned you're doomed!! So simple this is hatred ideology. Can't see that most of SD oppositions come from white non-Muslim Swedes ? Do they like Islam? No. They just don't like 'Hatred' because they know what it brings for them in future. Now as a good immigrant try to understand digest Swedish standards and thinking rather than your own ones!!
18:29 September 19, 2010 by cowboykodp
Wow, you people just don't get it.

I am not an authority on Islam, so if you REALLY are curious, I am sure there are lots of books to educate yourself on what religions are really about. I assume you people can read.

Put another way .. Its like starting a conversation by : Your mom is a prostitute and likes to get gang raped by a group of donkys. Then your sister likes to join in with your dad and brother. " But lets have a beer together and talk".

(Pardon my graphic language)

In short, your motives are not to really learn, but to just insult.
18:45 September 19, 2010 by Iraniboy
@cowboykodp

Exactly! There is no point to discuss an insult. For example when SD says Africans are programmed to rape, it is very clear that nobody should even try to prove anything to them. The only reasonable response to an insulter is to find why they actually insulted. This is also the case with some of the members here.

No you dumbass. Books.

You know what a library is? Or a book store?

They do have those in your country, don't they?
19:14 September 19, 2010 by PorkForEveryone
Just because its in a book it does not mean its true.

Ohhh, excuse me, I forgot, you take a pedophiles words from a book and say they are from 'god' just because... its in a book.

I asked you to educate us on what I wrote wrong, not about how great Islam is... we already know that via the slitting of throats, suicide bombers, calls for beheading of journalists/ cartoonists etc.

Since you seem to have missed my post above, let me repeat and ask you to clarify where exactly are the lies and fear mongering that you claim I am spreading:

Islam preached by a pedophile: check.

Behead all those who dont think like you: check.

Ok to rape and kill all those of a different religion: check

Make people antisocial by dressing your wives(!) in a black tent : check

Go to other countries and try to bend them to adjust to you instead of you adjusting to them: check

Take total advantage of the welfare system: check

Breed like... well, you know... :check

Behead people on film:check

Suicide bombers: check

Mass killings and genocide around the world:check

@Porky

If you're in Sweden you can book a time for consulting a Psychologists. They can track the route cause of your obsession and hatred. By the way if it makes you feel better to post the same rubbish several times, I have no objection considering your individual condition.
19:23 September 19, 2010 by Tamales
Porkforeveryone....they are never going to directly respond to these things because they can't. All you're going to get from them is the typical exaggerations and cries of "Nazi." It's all they can say. Pretty sad. lol.
19:37 September 19, 2010 by Iraniboy
@Tamales

I wonder if Jews were responding to the accusations made by Hitler and Nazis and did it really help, or not?!

By the way Tamale If I ask you that in the city you were born it was common that prostitutes were giving birth to random guys and most guys were paedophiles, have you noticed during your childhood? You won't try to give me the evidence that it wasn't so, do you? There is no point to answer an insult!!
19:42 September 19, 2010 by PorkForEveryone
True Tamales, like good Muslims they will continue to skirt the questions. I'll stop responding to these despos - I have already voted no need to waste time with morons who keep bringing up strawmen and unrelated cr@p just because they cannot face the truth or answer direct questions.

Good day everyone... and have some salami!
19:58 September 19, 2010 by wenddiver
@PORKFOREVERYONE-

Well said, absolutely top rate.The fact that they can't challenge a single one of your talking points, shows thew eakness of their defence of the world's most violent political ideology-Islam.

And the Truth shall set you Free.
