You WON’T BELIEVE what just happened to this Swedish woman...
Freedom of speech is gone in Socialist Sweden.
There are many bad things happening in Sweden. During the last 8 years of Socialist rule, thing have gotten a lot worse. Not only with regards to crime, but also things have taken a turn for the worse when it comes to freedom of speech.
Because now Swedish author and journalist Katerina Janouch, who has been critical of the Socialism for many years now has just been sentenced by a court to pay over $5000 for the crime of doing journalism.
For what you might ask?
Well, because she exposed what a far-left teacher was doing to children at state indoctrination camp...I mean school.
Yes, you read that correctly. A journalist has been sentenced for the crime of REPORTING what far-left teachers are teaching kids in school, because that is considered ”gross libel” now apparently.
I have managed to get an interview with her, so make sure to read all the way down in this article so you don’t miss it!
What did she report that this teacher was doing in school?
Well, it all began in 2020 when school children in 3rd grade (9 year olds) got an assignment to write a text from the perspective of a Muslim, about how they ”belonged to Islam” and ”prayed in the Mosque”.
One of the children, a Christian girl, didn’t want to do the assignment because she comes from a family who strongly believes in their faith. The girl felt forced to do the assignment because she was told she would get detention if she didn’t finish it in time.
The mother of the girl was very angry and in an interview with Katerina Janouch, she told her:
”I am so angry that I am boiling. How can one do this? We are Christians and my children should not be forced to be Islamized in the school education”
Here is a photo of the child’s assignment at the school.
It is in Swedish, so here is some of the text translated ”Hi, I belong to Islam. I pray in the mosque. I celebrate ramadan. I read the quran”.
The teacher behind the assignment said that she expected trouble from the mother, and she goes on to call the Christian groups that the mother is active in as ”sects”.
The mainstream media did not report on what happened at this school, so Katerina Janouch decided to write about it. And for the crime of journalism, she was sentenced with ”gross libel” for reporting on this.
Many people were upset at learning what this school was teaching, with people calling for the resignation of this teacher and contacting the school and the local municipality.
Because of these negative reactions from the public, the school called police and now a journalist has been convicted for the crime of journalism.
Katerina Janouch has been sentenced to pay $664 in fines and $4427 in damages to the teacher.
But remember this, the allegations did not even come from Janouch. It was a parent who talked about this to begin with, Janouch merely reported on what the parent said.
The court said that her article went against the press ethical rules…
And get this, according to Janouch, a teachers assistant came as witness in the court room and declared that everyting she had written was factually correct. Yet she was found guilty of ”gross libel”.
She has appealed the court ruling.
I have managed to get in touch with Katerina Janouch for an interview and ask her some questions about what she thinks is happening in Sweden.
Interview with Katerina Janouch.
Me: "How do you see the free speech situation in Sweden right now?"
Katerina Janouch: ”I have just been convicted of gross defamation when I, as a journalist, reported that young children were exposed to a controversial teaching method in a swedish school where they were forced to confess to Islam as a role-play in order to gain "increased understanding" of other cultures and religions, while muslim kids did not have to do a corresponding role-play to pretend they were christians... Not being allowed to raise this issue as a journalist shows how sick our society has become, how Islam is actually protected as a kind of untouchable phenomenon that must be respected. We have had politicians and police authorities who believe that you should not be allowed to burn the Koran because it can offend Muslims. In principle, the blasphemy laws are already here and our free speech is history.
Freedom of expression in Sweden is in free fall, because it is being curtailed more and more and it is becoming increasingly stigmatized to criticize Islam in the first place, but also the corrupt politicians, the climate hysteria, how to handle the Corona pandemic...the so-called "anti-racists" and above all the agendas of the major media platforms... I myself am now condemned for criticizing the way in which the ideology of Islam is normalized in school education for very young children. All criticism of the left-wing establishment is branded as right-wing extremism and attempts are made to stigmatize voices critical of the system, such as journalists and writers who oppose it. Taking legal action against journalists is a method that has not previously been applied in Sweden.”
Me: "Do you think the basis for this prosecution really is because they do not like your influence and political opinions, for having opposed Socialism in Sweden?"
Katerina Janouch: ”It is absolutely so. I was judged in advance because I am an uncomfortable voice for the left-wing political elite in Sweden. It was clear in the courtroom that it was not about law but about setting a moral example where I would learn not to act disrespectfully towards authorities and authorities. Both prosecutors and judges engaged in pure abuse of power. It was also demanded that I pay substantial damages of 50.000 Swedish kronor to the "victim", meaning the teacher who taught Islam in an unacceptable and controversial way to Christian and secular children.”
Me: "Do you see parallels with what is happening in Sweden now and what happened in Soviet countries?"
Katerina Janouch: ”Yes absolutely! The difference is that in the old east block everyone knew that the media lied and that the newspapers were full of communist propaganda. In Sweden, people are tricked into thinking that we live in a society where we have full freedom of speech and democracy. I see similarities in how it works in schools, as I myself attended a communist school as a child. There, too, it was full of propaganda. In Sweden, the majority of teachers are left-wing and they run shameless propaganda. Normalizing Islam is just one branch of this sick sectarian mentality where multiculturalism and climate activism are celebrated and everything else is portrayed as racism.
Swedish authorities and media are also good at defaming individuals. If you have wrong opinions, you will be harassed, bullied, deplatformed, canceled, you will be fired and denied work in unions and associations. We have a society with informers, guardians of "values" that voluntarily report you for your opinions. People are terrified to express their opinions.”
Me: "Where do you see the future for Sweden going, will things change for the better now with a new government, or do you think things will only get worse?"
Katerina Janouch: ”I hope that the change of government can be a new beginning for Sweden, but it is a long uphill, with all the socialist activists in the mainstream media and in authorities. And it will get worse before it will get better, I'm afraid. The crime record is soaring and has already beaten the numbers of 2021.”

Freedom of speech is going away in Sweden, were people cannot even report what far-left activists are teaching children in school anymore. Remember, in Sweden it is illegal to homeschool, meaning that you as a parent is forced to send your children to school.
In order to become good little Socialists, the indoctrination has to start early, and Sweden has been very good at doing this for many years now. You have no choice as a parent in Sweden but to let the state teach your children what they want.
This is why an increasing number of parents have actually fled Sweden in the last years so that they can homeschool their children somewhere it is legal.
