The following is an open letter to the Sweden Democrats published recently in Fria Tider, which is- as far as I understand- a newspaper in Sweden affiliated with the Sweden Democrats.
We have been hearing rumblings of discontent throughout the “far-right” about the Sweden Democrats for some time, and it was interesting to read the below letter, as it seems to articulate this clearly (if not as violently as we may like). I wanted to post it on the site so we can get a glimpse of internal Swedish politics.
Let us hope such discontent signals a populace increasingly aware of just how great their existential danger is.

Dear Sweden Democrats – especially those of you who control the ship – Mattias Karlsson, Jimmie Åkesson, and others: Stop searching for PC-Establishment acceptance.
Left-wing liberals of the Alliance, the journalists in Södermalm, and all the other members of the power structure and cultural elites have already decided that:
You are racists.
You are fascists.
You are evil.
You are the enemy.
It does not matter if you propose Swedish folk dances in the suburbs, paternity leave, “the right to full-time” in the public sector or any other carefully considered policies designed to make the party look less conservative and nationalistic.
You will still be considered the same stupid, uneducated racists from Blekinge, who believe that 400,000 euros correspond to 40,000 billion Swedish kronor. It does not matter what you do, they will still laugh at you behind your backs. Indeed they will probably do it when you are there, too – no one in “cosmopolitan” Stockholm respects you.
Deep down you know this. But still, you could not help it. Don’t misunderstand me- I understand why you do it, but it will not help. Self-respect comes through worthy actions, but your in attempt to “tidy your image”, you have done the least respectable thing politicians can do: You have betrayed your constituents and biggest supporters, simply because they do not have 270 credits in Law from Uppsala universities and been members of fancy clubs.
I do not blame you because you want to work with the Conservatives. For better or worse, they are the party with the least amount of immigration-fanatics and the most amount of semi-reasonable members. But your strategy is, as a good friend from school days would say, “fucking retarded” (excuse the French).
Instead of kowtowing to the Conservatives and (increasingly) opting out of the nationalism that is the foundation of your existence, you should have made efforts to force the Conservatives to move toward your policies. If this sounds preposterous to you then you underestimate yourselves. Conservatives have already begun to approach you. As the tone begins to change and immigration criticism becomes more mainstream, it is your job to draw the public debate even further to the right.
When the Conservatives say we need to reduce immigration a bit because there are places in our country that resemble Beirut more than Sweden, then you do not need to just say ‘welcome to reality’ and offer bland proposals for folk dancing, especially in communities where not even the police can go without violence, threats, and harassment.
No, you must continue to attack from the right (like this):
“We welcome all efforts to restore order in the country, but when Kinberg Batra stands there and says that we need more police officers I will be cursed. Her party has been in power in Sweden for eight years. During that period, the situation in the so-called exclusion areas – but let us call them by their real name: ‘ghettos’ – has worsened. Car fires, and violence against police, firefighters and EMT’s has become part of everyday life. Many young Swedish women say they no longer report sexual assault and rape because when they do nothing ever happens. Immigrant gangs carry out organized gang violence against very young – often underage – girls at concerts in Stockholm and around the country and ordinary people are afraid. All of this has taken place in the Moderates’ Sweden, and now you have the nerve to stand and talk about the problems of immigration and the necessity of law and order. I want you to apologize for how you and your party along with the other alliance parties and the Green party have worked to destroy Sweden. Before you do this, you have absolutely zero credibility to stand here and talk about immigration and alienation. I am pissed [sic].”
It is only the Sweden Democrats who have credibility in the immigration issue, while Reinfeldt was in the process of inviting illiterate hordes from the third world and creating a permanent underclass undermining the welfare state, you went on the attack against mass immigration. You defended our lands even though it was not expedient. Despite the fact that you had to withstand ridicule, defamation, and death threats.
Now the winds begin to turn, and the parties that do not at least pretend to be critical of immigration are punished by the voters. It is your turn to be king of the hill.
So increase the temperature even more. Initiate a complete halt to family re-unification. Immigrants who want to be reunited with their loved ones can do so by moving back home. Explain that we in 20 years will have no welfare at all, if we do not stop third-world immigration and start encouraging immigrants to return home. Sweden is no longer the paradise that those who came here thought it would be. It is time for the parliamentary parties to choose:
Do they want Sweden to become like Brazil (but with colder climates) – a dangerous country, where extreme poverty is widespread and the rich barricade themselves in gated communities and drive armored cars?
Or do they want Sweden to be that which Sweden once was: a small, homogeneous country, where we trust and help each other and people do not fall into poverty.
Force the parties that you wish to work with to approach you. Then you can determine the conditions, instead of being forced to act as lapdogs for the Conservatives. If you do not, the other parties will attract back those voters you struggled to win over for so many years. Even now you are the ‘dissatisfaction party’: the people do not vote for you because they necessarily like you and agree with you on everything, but because all the other options seem even worse. Fewer and fewer people feel enthusiasm for the Sweden Democrats as a party, especially among young voters.
Stop using P.C.-establishment tactics against your own, and put the nation’s well-being ahead of your own interests- just as you did before. Declare with determination that you are still the only party that represents ordinary Swedes, and that you are not afraid to stand up for what you think is right – not what you think will make you less hated by the establishment.
Only then you can make big gains in the polls again.
Only then will you gain respect among the regular Swedes.
Only then can you become a governing party.
