Immigration and Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug says she is bombarded with claims that she is a racist and compared with Nazis on her own Facebook page.

Today she released a post in which she accuses a group of opponents of  uniting around unsavory discussions on her Facebook page.

– Lately, a bunch of people seem to have organised themselves in bombarding this page with ugly allegations.

I am called a racist, xenophobic, I am compared with Nazis and the 30s in Germany, writes Listhaug.

She refers to the group ‘Petition against the Government’s Immigration policy.’

– Most members of this group are propbably ordinary people.

But there is a small circle that cooks up allegations of Nazism and produce drawings of me with a pig’s nose she writes, and warns that she will now throw out those who pollute the climate of debate on her facbook page.

One of the administrators of the group Listhaug refers to denies that it is behind the organized bullying.

She writes that administrators cannot be held responsible for individuals writing on Listhaugs page, but concludes with a recommendation:
– Keep on and continue to work for a good cause, but remember to focus on the case and  that we, at least here in our group,  try to stick to the guidelines, writes Janne Loken.
