Swedish Government Minister Investigates to Make Display of Runes and Thor's Hammer a Hate Crime.
Swedish Democrats - Minister for Justice launches investigation into criminalising use of Runic sysmbols, Runic alphabet and Thor's Hammer symbol in response to a request from World Jewish Congress (WJC) as part of a wider WJC campaign asking Swedish government to ban the Nordic Resistance Movement (NRM). the WJC regards the NRM use of the Tyr Rune as a "Hate Symbol".
In the USA, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has already listed many Runic,Nordic/Germanic symbols including individual runes, the Black Sun and the Thor's Hammer as "Hate Symbols".

The World Jewish Congress (WJC) is putting pressure on the Sewdish government to ban the NRM and to declare the display of the 'Tyr' rune an illegal 'Hate' symbol.
The Swedish Democrats would consider these images as possibly 'Hateful' and 'Criminal'.
|This kind of Folkish display will become a 'Hate' crime if the WJC can convince the Swedish government to make new laws.|
