Which makes them racist. The lesson to be learned is that when introducing new terms, make sure your party leader is up to speed about it.

In general I don't think it is wrong to call them neofacist, depending of course on the definition of fascism and neofascism. As an organisation they are in direct descendence from nazi and neonazi organisations in Sweden, they celebrate "the people" and point out which inhabitants do not belong to "the people". Yes, they claim to respect democracy, but that does not mean more then not actively planning to overthrow the government with violent means.

Also, calling them neofascist increases the cost to cooperate with them.
