This is so excellent, finally the Sweden Democrats are able to go toe to toe with their detractors in front of parliament and the nation. Sahlin dredges up the tired old charge of “racist roots”, and Åkesson fires back about their past in race based pseudo science. Touché. KGS
NOTE: The new Republican members of Congress and the Senate should remind their counterparts and the public, if it ever comes up during the immigration debate, that the Democrats is the party of segregation and slavery. 

Sahlin and Åkesson clash in first Riksdag duel

Sahlin charged that it is a big loss for democracy that a party with racist roots has a place in Sweden’s parliament, the Riksdag.

Her attacks on the Sweden Democrats came as she opened the first debate between party leaders in the Riksdag since the country’s September 19th general elections.

In his debut at the Riksdag’s platform, Åkesson retorted, “Mona Sahlin alleges that my party has racist roots, but it was not my party that initiated eugenics research.”

Between 1935 and 1975, a period of nearly uninterrupted rule by theSocial Democrats, Sweden sterilized a total of 63,000 people, mostly women, as part of a programme based on eugenics research with the aim of weeding out “inferiors” to create a stronger Swedish race.
