Swedish Teacher Fired for Racist Facebook Posts

The Local, August 5, 2014

A newly-hired teacher in southern Sweden had her contract terminated after the school discovered anti-Muslim posts that she had written on the internet.

The teacher was meant to start working this August at the Montessori school in Kalmar, but after the school principal took a good look online she decided to end the already-signed contract due to the teacher’s openly racist views.

The principal, Ann-Sofie Stensdotter, told Sveriges Radio that the teacher’s extremely negative opinions about Muslims and “illegal immigrants” go against the school’s values.

She added that the school will begin looking at what job seekers write on the internet in advance to avoid hiring people who are actively fighting for values not in line with the school’s code.

The teacher published several video clips on her Facebook page where people, allegedly Muslims, engage in such acts as animal abuse. She had also commented on several of her posts, writing that “these people are God’s punishment” for Sweden becoming a secular nation.

Another picture of a thin, old white person and a well-fed dark person was captioned with claims that “illegal immigrants” take all the government’s money, leaving nothing to Swedish pensioners.

Hanna Oxell, front desk manager at Wise recruitment agency, told The Local that workers at her agency usually check online to see if the person interviewed matches the person online.

“We want to see if it strengthens the image of the person we are recruiting,” she continued.

Stensdotter stressed that the biggest problem was not the teacher’s views, however, but the strength and openness with which she shared them. The teacher’s extreme views against those with Muslim backgrounds would be clear to students, Stensdotter said.

In a report by the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and Bisnode about how Swedish employers look up potential candidates, 75 percent were revealed to have some kind of policy in place for background checks on job seekers.

About 45 percent search their candidates on Facebook, and nearly 40 percent use search engines like Google.

“It’s not that common, but companies tend to say no to job-seekers in serious cases,” Oxell told The Local. “For example when their opinions doesn’t match the company’s values.”

    So now disliking a religion and those who break the law is “racist.”
    Just goes to show that the definition of “racism” is constantly expanding.

    • Whitetrashgang

      How about tell the truth and be fired? Anyways why is anyone on facebook etc. Do you go to a crime scene and leave your ID on purpose?Also now she should sue the school because her facts are truthful.

      • propagandaoftruth

        Kids gotta learn to be careful on the webbytubey. Especially in Sweden.

      • JohnEngelman

        When accused of political incorrectness truth is no defense. Indeed, truth increases the severity of the offense.

        • Whitetrashgang

          Well then, time to turn it around a bit.

        • Chasmania

          Very true.
          Truth is the evidence of guilt in emotion based progressive decision making such as this.

  • D.B. Cooper

    If she were smart, she would find one of her diverse coworkers making anti-white statements, yet keeping their job. Then, she might have a lawsuit.

  • MekongDelta69

    How is this possible?! (He asks with extreme sarcasm)

    Just yesterday (on AmRen), I give you:
    Integration Minister says “We know that different human races actually do not exist.”

    Race ONLY exists when the left needs it to further some demented ’cause’ of theirs. Otherwise, fuhgeddaboudit…

    • Some Guy

      IQ too.

  • If race does not exist, and is just a social construct, as Sweden has officially deemed, (see yesterday’s AR thread), then there can be no such thing as a “racist” Facebook post.

    • Chasmania

      Do not confuse progressives with things like ‘facts’ and the use of critical thinking, it only muddies the waters of their feelings based reasoning.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Liberals don’t actually believe race doesn’t exist. They believe it exists only when, where, and in what circumstances they want it to. Thus, race exists when a white person is being “racist,” but it doesn’t exist when someone points to the massive crime differentials between different races because race is a “social construct.”

  • Maybe she will consider coming to America and teaching our christian students
    about the bogus religion of hate

    • Rosenmops

      The current government would never let her become an American.

  • This firing is the perfect example of why we don’t post here under our real names. We don’t post here under our real names, do we guys and gals?

    You want to publish truthful racial commentary, do as I do and start your own blog, where your real name is not required. Mindweapons, Viking Bitch, Paladin Justice (me), and other bloggers preach the value of stealth to race realists and WNs.

    Mindweapons states that we WNs should follow the Muslim example of tequiyya, which means lying for the cause. Pretend to be liberal when with liberals. Draw them out. Then subtly challenge the liberal belief system. My preaching focuses on the saboteur model.

    One thing we don’t need is our people making open warfare on a System which can easily destroy them. The woman in this case could have done much for our cause, but like me, she’ll never work again because no one will hire her now.

    Stay stealthy and sabotage the System quietly and silently, without drawing attention to yourself, Save your righteous anger for posting under your assumed name and never reveal that name to anyone.

    • Sloppo

      I like your ideas but I disagree completely about her. She is alive, free, and probably healthy, so she can still do many good things. She may not be able to have that job, but there are many other jobs to be had. Your approach can certainly be effective, but she may be more suited for more open work and that is needed also. I admire her for not cowing down to those who tell insidious lies with the intention to destroy us. At some point, people need to find the courage to openly stand up and tell the truth.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Yes unless you will lose everything,and even then, remember Russia everyone cowered and they all died. The sooner you fight back the better. I see why people who have so much invested in their education crumb. But what do leave behind to future generations? No matter how old you are you will have to become a man, you will die, you are a animal live for what you believe .

    • JohnEngelman

      When posting anything critical of Negroes or Muslims I try to restrict myself to facts that I document. Even that can be dangerous.

    • Sick of it

      It is never good to embrace lies. Anonymity may be necessary at present.

      “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

      But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and
      whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have
      their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is
      the second death.” Revelation 21:7-8

    • brianreilly

      I post in my name everywhere, without a worry in the world about it. I like to think that my comments are interesting and contribute to the commonweal. I would not post them otherwise. If someone wants to avoid me because of them, I am richer for not being around them. I do not ask any quarter, nor do I give it.

      • Usually Much Calmer

        Oh, but I bet your means of income is more amenable to your stridency than the average occupation? Nonetheless, thank you.

  • TruthBeTold

    Muslims and “illegal immigrants” go against the school’s values.

    They go against every WESTERN value.

    They are the shock troops displacing the natives. Our leaders know this but allow it to happen.

    The question is why?

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The elites do it for money and power. More fresh human meat from third world countries allows them to have more of it. They also do it because they hate white people and believe that they should be punished for past “injustices,” such as European colonization of the underdeveloped world, black slavery and the Mexican War.

      • Whitetrashgang

        No, to make sure they never get justice like in Germany.

        • Einsatzgrenadier

          There are also ethnic interests. “Never again” is the other major reason behind the controlled demolition of the west.

    • Chasmania

      Low IQ immigrants are easier to control and will subsist and be happy with a lower standard of living. They also help to lower wages across the board. Really a huge win for power hungry progressive elitists.
      I just wish the coming ethno-war would have come when I was younger.

  • Bardon Kaldian
  • WR_the_realist

    Now you see why I don’t post with my real name. Freedom of speech is for tenured professors, retired people, and the independently wealthy.

    BTW, don’t y’all love how Islam has become a “race”?

    • Sick of it

      They do tend to have Negro blood.

    • JDInSanD

      Yes, notice how Obama assigned NASA to reach out to muslims and try to convince them that they too have made contributions to science? Do we recognize Christians or any other religions’ contribution to science?

    • Guest

      “Freedom of speech is for tenured professors, retired people, and the independently wealthy.”


      Um, no. Remember what happened to Arthur Jensen and Philippe Rushton? Sure, they didn’t get fired, but they didn’t end up to well either.

  • none of your business

    At least she had a chance. In America if the race box is checked White the application is purged if on the internet, and dumped if an HR facist reads it.

    • Whitetrashgang

      HR Bolshevik , time to take the language back.

  • none of your business

    Wise recruitment agency. That is not a Swedish name.

    • Kenner


      • Lagerstrom

        No, those darn Eskimos again.

  • Sick of it

    “She had also commented on several of her posts, writing that “these
    people are God’s punishment” for Sweden becoming a secular nation.”

    Of course they fired her – They don’t want teachers who tell the truth.

    • Chasmania

      She was sure to be fired for her double whammy. Speaking out against immigrants AND speaking about a God who Judges ? Surprised she wasn’t jailed. One thing is for sure, she’ll have to change careers now.

  • DailyKenn

    I can’t help but wonder if Stensdotter considers Muslims a protected class of people or if her indignation extends to all people groups.

    For example: If the teacher had taken to Facebook to express her displeasure with Nazis, would the principal have cried in despair that a grievous offense had been committed against followers of Hitler?

    What if the teacher had besmirched the Swedish Democrats, the political party considered to be extreme right-wing. Would the teacher have been fired for making unseemly observations against the class of far right-wingers? Would she have been considered a Swedishdemocratophobe?

    There is no doubt the teacher would have been canned for criticizing the AADL (ABBA Anti-Defamation League). But what if she had taken Jews to task? Would Stensdotter had meted out the same measure of discipline?

    Also, I can’t help but wonder if Stensdotter realizes that teachers who criticize Muslims are a class of people. Granted, they’ve never flown passenger jets into skyscrapers, but they are known to commit such heinous crimes as making Facebook posts! Does Stensdotter not realize that, by firing the teacher, she has committed a moral-code violation more severe than posting on Facebook?

    It seems the principal values some groups — Islam and the AADL — more highly than others.

  • IstvanIN

    Sweden is a strange country. They worry about the civil rights of creatures who rape and murder their women. The most vile criminals are neither deported nor executed. I do not believe they even have life imprisonment.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Their white sex perverts,one step above a negro if that.

      • IstvanIN

        I was actually referring to the black and muslim rapists in their midst. What Swedes do among each other is the Swedes business.

        • Whitetrashgang

          Yes but it all ties in, cant have one without the other.

          • LHathaway

            What do you mean, with no non-white immigration, there would be no white sex perverts? Oh dear, the liberals would hate that! No white sex perverts. Maybe they do need Muslims and non-white immigrants.

  • Ella

    Someone once said to me that you’ll never maintain or keep your job once you speak out against the establishment. Much worse can happen if you make progress.

  • John R

    At the risk of offending some here, I will note that Sweden doesn’t have any Jews and this PC bull is as strong there as anywhere else. It may have started with the Jews but liberal multiculturalism is not primarily a Jewish thing anymore. Even most Jews are smarter than that.

    • Kenner

      Barbara Lerner Spectre. In Sweden, one is enough.

      • Ella

        She started a Jewish Institute in Sweden and promoted that Europe can only survive if it becomes multicultural. There we go again; social theory treated as “factual” in the collegiate setting.

    • Whitetrashgang


    • Einsatzgrenadier

      This is wrong. 0.16% of the population of Sweden is Jewish. There are 15,000 Jews, out of a total population of 9,400,000. That’s more than enough to do a lot of damage to the country.

    • Martel

      Europeans are clearly incredibly susceptible to such egalitarian movements, the Swedish even more so,

  • A Freespeechzone

    Don’t kid yourself, telling the truth on social media and in public can get you fired in this country…

    Remember the CEO of Mozilla getting fired for merely exercising his right to support Prop 8 in California.

    I’m sure people of lesser stature in the workplace are let go for stating non-PC positions….and it WILL get worse…

  • LHathaway

    And yet, can there be no doubt, pointing out the racism of whites and the excesses of christianity, past, present and current, this kind of truth telling Does go along with their values? Those are the only values they have, I’m willing to bet. That was going to be my post. . ‘what values do these companies have/have left?’ But they do actually value some things. And they do practice equality.

  • Chasmania

    It’s going to get where you’ll need some sort of false flag operation persona when using Facebook and other online sites of the sort.

    Build a totally PC background for perusal by government and HR apparatchiks, while having a ‘secret handshake’ style background persona online which is the REAL you, only allowing a select group to know the truth.

    Jesus, wtf kind of world are we living in today, eh ?

  • IKUredux

    Yay! Obviously, their brainwashing techniques are not infallible. Thank God and praise Jesus. Amen.

  • Augustus3709

    So what exactly are this school’s “values”? Swedish Suicide?

    This brings out the issue of the importance of online anonymity as well.

    And let this be a reminder that there are still good Swedish Women in Sweden, they are not all “insane feminists who deserve what they get.”
