"parasites" immigrants from Sweden. He had made his intensions clear on
a community radio program.

retracted from his past extreme views and is leading a purge in the
party going after racist. He advocates zero tolerance on racism and has
checked and dismissed several party members who show heavy hand on

But the Swedish tabloid paper, Aftonbladet had revealed a before known
band gigs where Jonas Akerlund made a grossly “unacceptable” racist
One of them was the party's community radio program were he called
immigrants parasites and wanted to repatriate some half a million of
them back home. Sweden Democrats second highest man also wanted to
buy prison places for third generation immigrants in their
"homeland" and expel whole families back home.
He had said then that he wanted to repatriate 500 000 of the most
obvious and worst “parasites,” i.e. those who do not have any
protection in Sweden. Those who are in Sweden for no clear reason other
than to “exploit us financially.” “ We would simply send them back home
again, half a million people, then Sweden's economy would look
radically different within a year, "says Åkerlund in the radio program.
He also said that not residency is given on deceptive ground for they want to stay in Sweden. "Everyone is lying after all."
Jonas Åkerlund also peddled the notion that all children who bullied at
school were immigrants and to remedy this, he wanted to drive them and
their families out of the country back to where they came from.
Bullying would not cease in schools because no one wants to take the
tough decision, he had said then.
Confronted with the past utterances, the assistant party boss said: “I was immature then."
"It is of course totally unacceptable language. Jonas has clearly
stated to me that this is not something he stands for today and it was
a reprehensible choice of words. This was said some almost twelve years
ago, "said party leader Jimmie Åkesson to Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet.
According to the press spokesman, Linus Bylund, Åkerlund has clearly
dissociated from the choice of words and it is considered as unaccepted
within the party. Åkerlund entered parliament in 2010 and is a member
of the Constitutional Committee.
