Sweden Democrats Tell Neo-Nazi to Vacate Seat
Curt Linusson has meanwhile stated that he has no intention of succumbing to the Sweden Democrats demand and will formally sit as an independent.
In an interview with the Expressen daily, Linusson described himself as a “nationalist”.
“I have never been a real Nazi, one could say. When it comes to Nazism and National Socialism, I suppose I m a part of that, but I am a nationalist. I don’t want Lidköping to become an immigrant ghetto,” he told the newspaper.
Linusson is credited by the newspaper with having started the Legion Wasa paramilitary organisation in 1999 and having signed up to fight in Iraq in defence of Saddam Hussein in 2003.
In 2005 he was convicted of hate speech after he carried a swastika during an NSF demonstration.
The only step which remains before Carl Linusson can claim the SD seat on the council is the formal approval of the county administrative board’s legal unit.
