Dear misanthropes of @socialdemokraterna_uppsala,

You should know by now, that I deeply despise your appalling and misanthropic ideology. My disgust for Marxism and its branches is not only theoretical, but also painfully empirical from how I have been treated by your evil system during the last eight years. You, my dear, are NOT my friends, but you are my bitter enemies!

Stay the Hell out of my life! #marxism #evil #misanthropy #socialism #socialdemocracy #socialdemocrats (på/i The Keatington Suite)

the racist party seems to get 12,9% of the votes, the rightwing loses and the socialdemocrats win, f! gets 3,1% and doesnt get into the parliament (except they havent counted early votes and votes from abroad and large amounts have voted before election day)
the rightwing prime minister is leaving his post as head of the moderate party
the racists are the third biggest party and they still paint themselves out to be outcasts
they said straight out today, on twitter, that when they get more power they will censor the media

and its so priviliged PLUS stupid that predominantly white feminisist are writing about how they want to leave sweden now, are you going to leave the people who cant move behind to be oppressed? fucking stay and fight!

Can you tell us more about what's going on in Sweden with the elections?

Ha, I knew this question would come sooner or later.
This year we have a new parliament election which occurs every fourth year, and this year also contained the election for the European Parliament, which gave this year the name: “Supervalåret” - translated to: THE SUPER ELECTION YEAR!

Which it actually became, because never has the two biggest parties stood so close eachother as right now, and the election is in three days.
For the last eight years a party called Moderaterna has won, but now it seems like Socialdemokraterna is going to win with just some procent.
Moderaterna is a liberal conservative party and Socialdemokraterna are more socialdemocrat (duuuh)

I don’t care about those two really, because neither of them suits me.
The last election a xenophobic party entered the parliament called Sverigedemokraterna, and they are about to become the third biggest party in Sweden (BOOOH). At the same time, a feminist pary is on the rise and has a good shot at taking some seats in the parliament, and if they becomes the weigher in this election, the SD won’t have anything to say. The same if Miljöpartiet (Enviorment party) instead becomes the third biggest party. I hope for a Red-Green-Pink government this sunday, and with a silent SD.

If you want to know more just ask, this was a really short summary of whats going on right now, and it seems like sunday is going to be a real nail-biter.
(AND ITS THE FIRST TIME I AM ALLOWED TO VOTE FOR THE PARLIAMENT BECAUSE I WAS THREE MONTHS TOO YOUNG THE LAST TIME >:P)

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. 

  1.  they literally started as neo nazis. They have used a Neo-Nazi movement as campaign slogans,
  2. party members have assaulted immigrants with iron pipes (tw for racialised violence),
  3. worn Nazi symbols 
  4. 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. 

even Maud Olafson says that it was a tactical mistake of the socialdemocratic party shut of the Left Party

even her

i repeat

miss neoliberal herself just said that the social democratic party should have let in the Left party into the government

Watch on arancionemo.tumblr.com

Swedish elections are officially over. Tomorrow we will have analysis, of course, but this evening let’s just rejoice for the socialdemocratic victory!

homsantoft replied to your post: “for fuck say social democratic party why did you shut off the Left…”:

Because they know they need to stay open to working with other parties & Giving V cabinet posts would probably lock the situation further. S are nothing if not cautious. I’m not even a little surprised, really.

not i am not surprised either, i am like resigned.

because this is exactly the kind off shit the social democrats has ALWAYS done (like they have V as their support party never give them cabinet positions or real power). this is S tactic everybody knows that

BUT

it is not 1950 anymore. C and FP are not the middle ground liberals they used to be. Especially C who has become neoliberals. finding support in those two parties are not as easy as in the past 

and the socialdemocrats need to get over this entire “V are not scary communists whos support we use to be able to have our minority governments, but never ever ever give cabinet positions or even officially talk to tactic” 

V are their ally best ally nowdays, who would help vote in social democratic politics if they just TALKED to them. i strongly doubt V honestly believed they were going to get cabinet positions, but by treating them badly S just shot themselves in the foot

like thats why i am so annoyed. this V and S thing is old political feud from like back in the days, and if their was anytime to get over it it was  NOW
