Sweden Smeared by Secretive Elite Facebook Group
Two Swedish investigating media groups have exposed an online cabal that deliberately smeared their own country in international media in an effort to discredit the Swedish light-touch Covid strategy.
Sveriges Radio has the details.
– Ekot and Vetenskapsradion have gained insight into the activities of a hidden Facebook group.
– Very serious allegations are being spread in a social media campaign.
– Experts in the field of information influence consider the tone and methods to be worrying.
The closed Facebook group with just over 200 members includes academics, opinion leaders, researchers at Swedish universities and others who are upset about Sweden’s handling of the coronavirus.
The members are largely active in Sweden, but the dialogue is conducted in English. We have gained insight into the closed group, the posts and activities for a long time.
Members coordinate activities in the Facebook group and take the messages to the comment field, Twitter, Swedish and international media. They have placed their messages in Time, Science, Washington Post, among others.
Hanna Linderstål is an independent virtual analyst and works to strengthen the business community’s and authorities’ knowledge of the impact of information.
What we can see in this group’s activities that make it interesting is partly that they court international media where they present Sweden as both a failure and that the authorities in Sweden would have a hidden agenda about the country’s corona strategy, says Hanna Linderstål.
Hanna Linderstål thinks that the group’s processing of international and Swedish media is very worrying.
Among other things, other countries are urged not to let Swedes in, to protect the countries. And these are strong statements that are made about Sweden internationally, she says.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
