RAIR Foundation USA interviewed leader of the Danish Stram Kurs (Hard Line) party, Rasmus Paludan, in the wake of his two year ban from Sweden. Paludan was informed by Swedish police at the border that his entry “posed a serious threat” to society. Paludan, a trained attorney and a duel citizen of Sweden and Denmark is now suing Sweden for their unconstitutional refusal of admissions.
On August 28, 2020 Paludan was traveling to Sweden to hold a rally and protest against illegal mass-migration in Malmo, which included burning a Qur’an. Malmo is one of the worst hit and most violent communities in Sweden due to migrant crime. Sweden has experienced far more violence, rapes, dangerous no-go zones and more gang violence than is currently seen in Denmark.
Sweden’s exploding violent migrant crime rate poses a threat to his neighboring country Denmark, explains Paludan because of the easy access between Scandinavian countries due to the Nordic Passport Union. The Nordic Passport Union allows illegal migrants residing in Sweden to easily travel and reside in Denmark without any travel documentation or even a residence permit.
Before traveling to Sweden, Paludan was informed by Sweden that he would be receiving extra Swedish police protection while he was in the country. Paludan was offered the protection due to the threats he faces for exposing the dangers that Islamic immigration and ideology, Illegal mass-migration and Communism pose on the West.
However, when Paludan arrived at the border, he was met by over two dozen Swedish police officer armed with documents explaining that he was banned from entering Sweden. Police also informed Paludan that all demonstrations in Scania were to be cancelled citing their inability to guarantee public safety.
Paludan intended to set fire to the Qur’an to demonstrate how Islamic migrants would react to the provocation. Despite the fact that Paludan did not enter Sweden, a Qur’an was set on fire and large riots broke out in the city. As Paludan previously explained previously to RAIR, the inevitable violence from the smallest provocation demonstrates Swedish police’s loss of control over Islamic migrant areas:
Sweden has been much more disturbed by Islam than Denmark. Our actions have shown that freedom and speech and freedom of peaceful assembly no longer exist in Sweden. Now, Sharia Law is the law of the land.
Paludan reports that many of the Arab migrant Swedish police officers at the border he dealt with were unable to communicate with him due to their broken Swedish. However, Rasmus’ Chief of Staff reports that several were able to celebrate, laugh and high-five as Paludan was banned. “Watching migrants stand in our own police uniforms and mock us while they deny us entry into our own country’s” is unacceptable explains Paludan.
After returning to Denmark, Paludan sent an application to the Swedish embassy in Copenhagen to get proof that he is a Swedish citizen. It was confirmed by the Swedish Migration Board that he is in fact a Swedish citizen and has every right to travel to, and stay in Sweden. The Swedish Migration Agency states that Rasmus Paludan is a citizen of Sweden because he has a Swedish father. Paludan’s Swedish father married his Danish mother when he was seven years old.
The ban on Paludan was therefore a violation of the Swedish constitution which clearly states that, “No Swedish citizen may be denied entry into Sweden.” This ban is also a violation of European Union law which Paludan explains, “you can not deny another EU citizen entry into a country merely based on the idea that they might commit a thought crime”.
It should be noted that according to European Union law – the right of free movement, individual EU
countries cannot deny another EU citizen entry into a country merely based on the assumption that this person might commit a “thought crime”. Nationals of EU single market are not only visa-exempt
but are legally entitled to enter and reside in each other’s countries.
Paludan intends to sue the government for 1.000.000 Swedish Kronor for his unconstitutional ban. It is a sad irony that while hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants, many extremely dangerous, are allowed entry into Sweden, a citizen is denied access to his own country and treated like a criminal.
