Wow, now I am confused. I thought it was the Sweden Democrat party that were the real Nazis.Sweden's authorities have long struggled with how to handle marches by the neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement (NMR). Now the openly racist and anti-Semitic group is campaigning in the general election for the first time.
I guess the old tried and true tactic of calling anyone you don't like either "racist" or "islamaphobic" or "Nazi" only works for so long.
The openly racist and anti-Semitic party has put forward 24 candidates in the parliamentary election, and is campaigning in three municipalities: Ludvika and Boden as well as Kungälv.
Its leader Pär Öberg hopes to win council seats in at least two of these municipalities, and has even suggested it might pass the four percent threshold to get into the Swedish Parliament, although no polls come even close to bearing this out.
He is particularly hopeful for the city of Ludvika, where he sat on the local municipality for four years after being elected as a Sweden Democrat, the far-right party which became the third largest in Sweden in the 2014 election.
Öberg gleefully tweeted that "National Socialism is back for real" when a recent YouGov poll showed parties outside the mainstream garnering a combined total of 4.7 percent, a result also celebrated by the newly formed far-right Alternativ för Sverige (AfD) party. This figure however includes the results of almost 30 parties.
"This is the first election where they are participating and they have quite high expectations," he told The Local.
But he said that he was sceptical of their chances, partly with the competition they face for the votes of disaffected Sweden Democrat voters from AfS.
