Don't forget swedish censorship

Reader comment on item: Did Swedes Just Decide for National Suicide?

Submitted by Lars Nielsen (Denmark), Dec 31, 2014 at 10:43

In his comments, Mr. Pipes expects the Sweden Democrats to benefit from the "December Agreement", and so mr. Johnson and mr. Sennero of Reuters. All of them believe, that this agreement will focus the swedish debate on immigration, but that will not happen. Because in Sweden, the media have agreed not to critisize swedisk immigration policies. In stead the media will focus on digging up dirt about the Sweden Democrats, without mentioning anything about their politics.

So if the Sweden Democrats will benefit from the "December Agreement", it will be in spite of the absense of a political debate on immigration issues.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Yes, that was implicit to my analysis. The media excoriates the SD, yet it has doubled its vote each of the past two elections.
