And they consider this a normal, routine exercise.
I keep telling you that Sweden is not a normal western state, this is just another example as to why that claim is true.
SWEDISH NEWSPAPER WORKS WITH FAR-LEFT GROUP TO ‘OUT’ RIGHT-WING COMMENTERS
Journalists from one of Sweden’s biggest newspapers have used information fed to them by a far-left group to identify the email addresses and names of anonymous right-wing online commenters in a disturbing public “outing.”
People who were found to have made comments which the Swedish political class call “far right” were confronted by journalists from Expressen at their homes and workplaces, sometimes with television cameras rolling, and questioned about their opinions.
This form of “Spanish inquisition” of personal opinions was defended to Breitbart by Thomas Mattsson, editor of Expressen: “All the people who had written the comments, such as questioning the Holocaust, were given the opportunity to answer to our questions about this before we published.”
Reporters were dispatched across Sweden “to track down those who used hate sites.”
According to an article in the Swedish news website The Local, and forwarded to Breitbart News by Mattsson, the identification of the commenters was made by the Researchgruppen, an organisation with links to the far left, which traced 6,200 accounts through the forum platform Disqus.
The Researchgruppen forced a leading member of the Sweden Democrats, an anti-immigration, anti-EU party which is showing five percent support in the latest Eurowatch opinion poll for the European Parliament elections later this month, to resign last December after allegedly “insulting and xenophobic” online messages were traced to her.
Ten other members of the party were forced to resign as well.
According to The Local: “Researchgruppen is widely reported to have links to far-left organisations, including AFA – an organisation which advocates violence to achieve its political goals.”
