The election predictions are no surprise. What is shocking is the vile lengths the enemedia is going to libel the right as the “Neo-Nazi” party. Pure evil.
It is the left that emulates the Nazis. The violence, the propaganda, the hatred. The leader of the Sweden Democrats Jimmie Akesson and his little boy are under death threat, ” “We will behead you if you do not withdraw from the election”
The headlines decry “far right fears”. It’s the far left that is violent, antisemitic, pro-jihad. What the hard left media means is they fear the people are on to them. The people of Sweden live in a constant state of fear because of the violence, rape and supremacism of the migration (the hijrah). This is their only shot. They are in a war.
This is not just fake news, it is libelous ‘news’.
