The Polish candidate in Sunday’s Swedish parliamentary elections wants to help Sweden turn back from the Left and its insane migration policy. Beata Milewczyk will run as a member of the Sweden Democrats (SD).

Milewczyk arrived in Sweden in 2007 with her two young children to join her husband. They settled in Södertälje, where she is now a councilwoman, in which almost half of the inhabitants are now immigrants. Once it was mostly Poles and Finns, now Middle-Eastern immigrants are the dominant group. The Polish population is 2,500.

“Since the beginning it was an uphill struggle,” Milewczyk explains in an interview for Gazeta Polska Codziennie. It was difficult for her to find a kindergarten due to there being too many immigrants. When she finally joined a language school after a year, Arabic dominated as the language because of a lack of control. “The regional government also wasn’t too helpful in supplying a translator for meetings with clerks or doctors," she said.

I was once called into school because one of my children was cussing. It turned out that it was doing so in Assyrian

“I was once called into school because one of my children was cussing. It turned out that it was doing so in Assyrian. I replied, that it wasn’t my problem but that of the school, because at home we speak Polish and I don’t know Assyrian," Milewczyk said. 98 percent of children in schools are immigrants, so they are used to speaking in their own language. “Under the influence of their friends, my children started speaking Arabic or Assyrian," she added.

Due to her experiences with immigration, Milewczyk decided to enter politics and joined the Sweden Democrtas in 2010. She was motivated by seeing Mona Sahlin, a former social democrat’s leader, not wanting to speak to the leader of the SD, Jimmie Akesson and branding him a racist.

“I asked myself – is this democracy?”

Mileczyk

Milewczyk is running for re-election to the Södertälje regional council as well as Sweden’s parliamentary elections. The SD is currently the second political force in the country, with polls giving them as much as 20 percent of popular support.

“I’ve been met with a positive reaction from Poles living in Sweden,” Milewczyk says of her campaign. “I know that there are many more like-minded people.”
