A man in Sweden faces up to two years in prison over a Facebook post in which he said Somalis typically have low IQs, despite technically being correct.

The 60-year-old from Kungsängen posted, “Only every fifth Somalis have IQ over 70,” on a Facebook page called ‘Stand Up For Sweden’ in September last year.

According to prosecutor Paulina Brandberg, the post targets a protected group of people based on their national origin and is therefore hate speech.

The defendant has neither denied or acknowledged the crime, but could face up to two years in jail on top of a fine after he was charged by the Attunda District Court.

According to British Professor Richard Lynn and his Finnish colleague Tatu Vanhanen, who published a book called IQ and the Wealth of Nations, which made a correlation between IQ rates and economic prosperity, the defendant is technically correct since the average IQ in Somalia is 70.

The IQ Research website lists the average IQ in Somalia as 68.

The case is yet another example of what is now being referred to as “hate facts,” statements that are generally true yet are negative towards minorities or other ethnic groups.

So, can no longer speak/print the truth if it’s about a protected group of people, but non-stop lies about non-protected people, such as conservatives, is not only allowed, but perpetually perpetrated by our media, schools, bumper stickers, you name it.

When someone says that you don’t have the right to say something, that is when you need to say it.

Hate crime legislation was supposed to punish those who kill or beat up someone solely because of their race or gender. Over time it is being used for hate speech, too. For years hate crime legislation was defeated when presented as a single bill. A few years ago it was tagged onto a military appropriations bill and passed. Liberty lovers need to be careful now.

What do college professors do if they wants to cite the fact that the average Somali IQ is 68? Does the government demand that professors lie to their students? Maybe the government should publish a list of approved facts so people don’t accidentally say something the government doesn’t permit.
