Is it just me who get those moments when Calof looks like he could be Buds little brother or something?
Of course this was going to happen, like every time someone right from the center gets democratically elected or even receives a large enough amount of votes.
First one says something like “Yesterday, 781120 Swedes voted for [Sweden Democrat symbol].
The third urges people to post selfies with the number 87, saying they’re part of the 87% who didn’t vote SD.
Think of the Sweden Democrats what you will, this is just a complete and utter lack of journalistic integrity and another example of the madness that has taken hold of Sweden. Democracy apparently is only acceptable if the outcome is what the left and the media want it to be, and if the people democratically say no and choose something else, that’s a “black sunday” and those must be ostracized instead of having their opinion respected. This, people, is how marxist one party states operate and this is what the left wants us to be.
Whether you like SD or not, this is your democracy, and it shouldn’t only exist as long as those guys like it. Stand with the 13% who exercized their democratic rights and voted SD.
This is how my country deals with things that threatens the consensus
Yeah, they cry and whine. Just look at these reactions when SD got into the parlament the first time in 2010. Oh the sweet joyfull tears https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5VjuPsT-84
Really? Are you really being serious here?
Yes, the 13% have every right to vote for SD.
And the 87% have every right to express how they feel about that.
To help you understand:
sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today, goddamit.
Okay, so the post is gaining notes and people are confused, so to explain what the hell is going on:
Swedish elections held were on last Sunday, 14th September. We’ve had a right-leaning government the past eight years and after this there will be a change of power. The new party, Socialdemocrats (S) gained a total of 31% percent. The old party, Moderaterna (M) gained 21%.
Sverigedemokraterna (SD) gained a total of 12.9%. Their policy is racist, Islamophobic, anti-immigration, anti-refugee, anti-diversity, anti-LGBT+, and anti-feminist. Basically, they tick every box on the douchebag lottery.
If you’re here to argue that they’re ~not actually~ Nazis: 1) Fuck you. 2) Fuck the horse the you rode in on. 3) I hope you get stepped on by a moose, you ignorant asswipe.
- they literally started as neo nazis. They have used a Neo-Nazi movement as campaign slogans,
- party members have assaulted immigrants with iron pipes (tw for racialised violence),
- worn Nazi symbols
- supported and helped build Neo-Nazi group SvP.
There’s probably more, but I don’t have links on hand.
They’ve been having rallies and demonstrations all over Sweden, and people have shown up just to turn their back on them and protest (this post explains it better).
In the 2010 elections, SD were pretty much considered no better than neo-Nazis and only got 5.7% votes - it put them in 6th place and was just enough to get them into parliament. In the elections before that, they got about 2.9%. In the past four years, they’ve grown exponentially in Sweden.
They’ve also run extremely extensive PR campaigns, appealing to the youth, kicking out members “exposed” of being racist, (note: these members often end up in SvP) and picking up buzzwords from the Socialdemocrats’ ideology.
29% of votes they gained this year were from swing voters who previously voted M, and the biggest gain have been in the south, in small towns and the countryside:
This is not something that’s just going on in Sweden. Europe has seen an influx of extreme-right parties over the last decade or so, often thinly disguised as a party that puts ‘traditional values’ and ‘national interest’ first.
In Greece and Hungary they’ve already been in power. In Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Finland France and UK, extreme-right-wing parties have been voted into the EU.
Because here’s the thing: we’ve forgotten what it looks like. We’ve gotten to the point where we’ve turned Nazism into a cartoonish lampoon of goose-stepping, uniforms and moral lessons that “we’ll never be like them~”, ignoring the fact nationalism is not as cut-and-dry two ends of an extreme but exists on a scale.
People have been apologising for SD’s actions for a while now because they’re not considered “extremist enough” to be neo-Nazis, because they don’t share the same beliefs, because they’ve “publicly denounced” SvP.
But the same people still get hurt. Still SD has the institutional and systematic power and privilege to oppress, degrade and humiliate people of colour, which they already have done. Stop making excuses for them. Stop making leeways for right-wing-extremists because that is how they gain tract.
Please spread this.
We here in Sweden now have a homophobic, transphobic, islamophobic and racist party as the THIRD. BIGGEST. PARTY. 13% percent of the Swedish population voted for this asshole piece of shit.
They say that being gay is as wrong as being a pedophile.
I never ever want to hear that Sweden is a nice and equal country. I am just so mad right now I don’t know what to do
”- We have always had good politics.”
…said Richard Jomshof, a member of parliament representing the nationalist party Sverigedemokraterna (SD) who started out as a full blown nazis. Following todays election, SD is now the third biggest party in Sweden.

I love how when Pär celebrated his first goal at home he immediately skated and cheered towards the corner where his parents were!
I have no idea what I just found…. what the fuck?
oh oh I know this!!! it’s from Jimmies greeting to his teammates in Skellefteå AIK at their christmas party! It ended with something like “You’re lucky to have such a responsible captain who always takes practice seriously and is able to put up with your shenanigans - cause you should know guys, no other teams are as unserious as you.” -cut to this clip.
The whole clip is on youtube somewhere with a weird “asfsfdgweagdr”-title, found it once and then lost it…
