Oinking Sweden Democrat spat at guard

Oinking Sweden Democrat spat at guard

Isovaara also made grunting pig noises during the incident, according to the Expressen newspaper.

“He got annoyed at the guards who had immigrant backgrounds. ‘I don’t want anything to do with people like you,’ he said and spat in the air to make a point,” explained Torsten Stålnacke of the Stockholm police to the paper.

Officers were called to the Swedish Riksdag at 2am on Wednesday when Isovaara reported being robbed.

According to a statement from his political party, Isovaara fell foul of "two unknown people with immigrant backgrounds" who knocked him from his wheelchair and then took his backpack, which had his wallet inside.

The politician tried to get inside parliament afterwards but a safety guard asked him for ID, prompting the barrage of taunting.

"He even mimicked a pig in front of the guard, who thought it offensive,” police spokesperson Stålnacke told the paper.

The police officer on duty ended up reporting the politician.

Isovaara has not denied the police's claims.

"It may well have been that I was rude to the guard, and I am truly sorry about that," he told Expressen.

"I was in a bad state of mind after what had happened. As the police say I acted that way, it must have been the case."

The news of the incident broke just hours after prosecutors dropped a hate speech investigation against three of Isovaara's Sweden Democrat colleagues.

dont know what to make of this!!! sad he got robbed but to racially abuse guards that are doing their jobs is just in lne with what the SD party really are, one would have thought been on a wheelchair could at least make a human more humble!!!, very pathetic losers!!

Isovaara ..sounds like one of those "foreign" names...this is hardly racist though..cops are well known as pigs all over the world, although as it is sd it was probably meant that way

if, 'I don't want anything to do with people like you', isn't racist then i don't know what is....

Immigrants are in trouble in sweden. I don`t know some people are so inhumane. Behaving as if they are in this world to live forever.

It now appears that there was no robbery - the bag and wallet were found left behind at the bar the SD MP was in prior to the incident and the bar staff handed it in the next day

So funny, not for the guard obviously, who should press charges for assault (spitting is an assault as far as I am aware)...but hilarious that the goon has made up the story about "2 Blattar" stealing his bag and wallet when he's left it in a restaurant...probably pissed again like his younger pals in the party. I suspect Alcoholics Anonymous could roll out a cheap membership deal to the whole party!

Did Isovaara get his wallet back? Why was it taken to start with? Are these "security" guards screened? Be simpler to have security persons with identity badge and not push people from their wheel chair.

Same thing at any airport now for everyone, To qualify or identify securitystaff you have to look for bad breath, body odor,no chin,bad hair cut, hooknose, bug eyes, a Adams apple like they've swallowed a toilet ballcock, elbows past their knees

Are any of Sweden's politicians breath tested while in charge of a nation?

Immigrants are indeed in trouble in Sweden.

The main problem is the racists are protected by the system. Even in Universities like Uppsala Asian students are deceived, lied, threatened and treated like worse than animals by some professors. N O B O D Y C A R E S!

politicians with an over bloated sense of worth are common.

Racism (generally speaking) not a Swedish disease?
