Swedish Politics seems to have swung right
« on: September 15, 2022, 07:38:19 AM »

I'll link a BBC report below, but the TL:DR is that the Leftish center government of Sweden was voted out by a Right wing coalition that ran on getting immigration under control, stopping gang shootings, and increasing prison sentences.  It seems like crime got bad enough the Swedes did something.

The BBC article makes a few swipes at the Swedish Democrats (right wing party) as coming from Neo Nazi roots, and I don't know enough about Sweden to know if that's fair or not, but if true, I think it's telling that folks are sick enough with immigration to overlook that connotation.  There's probably some interesting take aways for other moderate left politicians around the world about how much upset folks will put up with, and who they might vote for when enough is enough.

I wonder if the new government will Make Sweden Great Again.

Sidenote: Is Viking still around?

Not as far right as the corporate media would have you believe.

From the link:

"Yes to the natural family, no to the LGBT lobby, yes to sexual identity, no to gender ideology... no to Islamist violence, yes to secure borders, no to mass migration... no to big international finance... no to the bureaucrats of Brussels!"

Sounds great, if they actually follow through.  They still only got about 1/4 the vote, if I am reading this correctly.

That is why the Japanese make it so hard, if not impossible, for non-Japanese people to own property, do certain jobs, etc.

A booger stain on a bathroom wall would make an awesome replacement for Kamala. Almost as repulsive and just as useless.

Well, I guess in some ways you could argue they have a point, except not the one they're making. I notice she seem to dislike the "financial speculators" though that could be a translation thing. Mussolini would have hated capitalists, but of course he was a big lefty, not "far right".

Unless she want to ban or imprison political opponents and establish micromanagement of all private businesses by government fiat, I don't see her as a fascist.

I don't either but that doesn't stop the MSM from calling Trump and anyone who votes for him a fascist.
Reality has little to do with what the MSM says.

Wow. She's right.

I don't think consumerism is the real goal, of course. I don't think the Davos Left knows its own goals. It's simply driven to evil by demonic forces it doesn't even believe in.

They are socially far right. Restricting immigration, probably the most pro-gun party in the country, in favor of repatriations of the useless voting cattle and deporting criminals for example, they are also pro-nuclear, pro-NATO, in favor of harsher punishments. Economically...it's a mixed bag. They used to be more to the left there but after an influx of angry former moderates & christian democrats they've moved a bit more to the right. They sure aren't economically libertarian or minarchists. All in all, if they can keep this coalition together (looking at you, Liberal party cumrags), I am cautiously optimistic.

Meloni's left-wing opponent says return of fascism is "fake news."

Someone better tell MSNBC

Quote
MSNBC opinion columnist Ruth Ben-Ghiat blasted the alleged "fascist credentials" of incoming Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni in a column on Tuesday and claimed that her "extremism" is "familiar" to those who follow supposed "authoritarian" regimes in Florida and Texas.

Ben-Ghiat wrote that Meloni’s political positions of being against "gender ideology," "LGBT lobbies" and "same-sex unions," as well as being pro-border control, make her an authoritarian leader. The piece also warned that Meloni is a friend of the Republican Party in the U.S. and wrote that her delivery "recalls that of Il Duce," Benito Mussolini.
