    Swedes up in arms as govt mulls potential ban on ancient ‘Nazi’ runes




    The Swedish government is looking into the possibility of forbidding the use of Norse runes, local media has reported, amid concerns that the ancient symbols could be misappropriated by neo-Nazi groups.


    Justice Minister Morgan Johansson is currently investigating whether or not runes should be banned in Sweden as a way to deter hate groups, a Swedish website Samhällsnytt reported. His is expected to make a recommendation on the matter by the end of May.


    If Johannsson decides to move forward with legislation prohibiting the runes, the ban could potentially encompass all Norse symbols, imagery, and traditional jewelry.


    The proposal has enraged many Swedes, who see Norse runes as part of their shared history. For those who identify as pagan or heathen, the potential ban has been interpreted as an assault on freedom of religion, which is guaranteed under the Swedish Constitution. The Nordic Asa-Community, the largest heathen religious group in Sweden, has spoken out against any government efforts to police Sweden’s ancient heritage, arguing that “prejudices and misunderstandings are best cured with knowledge and facts.”



    The religious organization has warned that banning Norse runes in Sweden would “wipe out a part of own history, culture and beliefs – and our freedom of expression.”



    Former parliamentarian and member of the right-wing Swedish Democrats, Jeff Ahl, expressed similar contempt at the idea of such a ban. “Our government advocates multi-culturalism, but we must not have our own culture. What the government is doing now is trying to censor our own cultural heritage and blur our roots. Fifth column,” he tweeted.


    Dozens of other Swedes flooded social media with comments expressing disbelief and contempt. One Twitter user even noted that she had several rune tattoos, and jokingly wondered if the government would pay for laser surgery to remove the images from her body.


    A petition against the potential ban started by the Nordic Asa-Community had more than 11,000 signatures on Wednesday. The group is also holding a rally in Stockholm’s historic center on May 24.


    While Nazi Germany and contemporary neo-Nazi groups have used Norse symbols for their flags and regalia, today runes are most commonly found on any modern phone or computer: The logo for Bluetooth, named after Harald Bluetooth, a Danish Viking age ruler, combines the runic equivalent of the letters “H” and “B”.

    Bluetooth was named after the 10th Scandivavian King Harald I. His runic initials can also be seen in the Bluetooth logo. #FunFactSunday

    They might want to ban Arabic for the same reason. The Swedish gvt has become as bad as the ISIS Muslim who thinks history begins and ends with Mohammed and that anything that predates or improves on him must be destroyed as apostate. What is this new anti-Swedish ideology the gvt is foisting. Where does it come from?


    It will certainly be the Christian cross next.

    It's the same mo slum Jihad against us and our way of life aided by the marxist political left in exchange for votes for a decade of government power.


    Even cultural 'mass suicide' won't be enough for the globalist 'Camp of the Saints' takeover.

    The irony here is that they do not realise that stating this makes them far right in the eyes of those who are planning this ban. Also they would be better of if they did not try to suggest a better plan of action to fight prejudice, or misunderstandings. But state that this plan serves no other purpose then to wipe out part of their own history, culture and believes. And then be prepared to take it the media blow back on the chin. Instead of fearing social exclusion.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
