Sweden Elections - "Swedes Are White And The Country Is Ours”

Four more days till the political landscape of the largest Scandinavian nation is set to be rocked by an earthquake, because if polls are correct then the rightwing anti-immigration anti-Europe Sweden Democrats could take nearly 20% of the vote.

If the Swedes are anything like the rest of their fellow Europeans, that percentage could even be higher as there is a tendency in Europe not to admit you will be voting for what the mainstream media calls the far-right.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">With 24.2% the Sweden Democrats are (still) the biggest party, followed by Löfven&#39;s Social Democrats (21.9%) - according to the last YouGov poll before the Swedish parliamentary elections this Sunday. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Josefin Graef (@graef_j) <a href="">September 4, 2018</a></blockquote>

Some of the Sweden Democrats are already openly celebrating and racist chants and calls to victory are rife on social media. Local newspaper Aftonbladet showed Facebook messages of one unnamed municipal candidate showing a song with the lyrics: "Swedes Are White And The Country Is Ours.”

Although the Swedish calm won’t be broken and the country will continue to grow economically, many young Swedes explain that they are voting for the rightwing party because the country they grew up in as a child, is not the one they are becoming an adult in anymore.

18-year-old Miss Sandra Sundstrom explains her vote for the Sweden Democrats: "They have the most things that are right for me… they're for Swedes."

"Many parties want to take in more people from other lands," complains Sandra, who is unemployed at the moment "but the Swedish people can't have the work they really want."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sweden styles itself as a humanitarian superpower. But is it a success story to be emulated or a cautionary tale? We travelled to the country’s second largest city ahead of crucial elections. <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Financial Times (@FinancialTimes) <a href="">September 3, 2018</a></blockquote>

Although Sweden has a low unemployment figure at 6% on par with the rest of the developed economies of Europe, some 17% of the immigration population is not working and many of those voting for the Sweden Democrats claim that the strain the ‘newcomers’ have put on the ‘social benefits system’ is simply unfair.

The mood hardened as the crime rate spiked in the last few months and seeing the success of the Sweden Democrats in the polls, all other parties started to shift to the right themselves as the election date nears.

The increase in shootings, hand grenade attacks and arson attacks on cars in areas with a high proportion of immigrants have even led the Swedish Prime Minister, Mr Stefan Löfven to lose his famous Swedish cool, stating at the time of the arson attacks: “I am really furious, what the hell are they up to?”

“Society will always act hard against this and we must continue to do so … We will do what needs to be done to take care of it and go in hard against this crime.”
