Does’t the picture mean that Sweden is hanging on a thin line? (Sverige hänger på en skör tråd?) or am I not getting it?

That’s it, I’m going to the dark side. I hear they have cookies.
In Holland we got such a rightwingtip nutcase as well. Sign o’t times alas.

its just the birds from the error-page of twitter. if twitter is down, the birdies carry a whale (the fail whale). since democracy failed in sweden, they carry sweden.

Ok, you could say that democracy didn’t fail but if some stupids vote for demagogues at least sweden has failed.

(and I’m saying that as a german citizen)

@Koalabaerchen Democraty did not fail if people voted for them, even if the are demagogue. In fact democraty even win!

Maybe people are really getting tired of immigration. Right or wrong, i dunno I’m not on the same continent. But if people voted for that, democraty won again.

Also: The Swedish word for “election” is “val” and the Swedish word for “whale” is “val”.

@bleh it is one thing to be (or even vote) against immigration. high unemployment rate, not accepting someone looking or behaving “weird”, praying to the false gods etc. there are many legitimate reasons. and if you’re living in a democrazy and you have an opinion you should really vote for some party with that opinion.

but it is another thing if you vote for someone who is a demagogue who just tries to get votes out of irrelevant fears. not immigration is the problem. the problems are homemade.

The solution for the “immigration problem” that seem to be all over the news lately (deportation of roma in france, right wing parties in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, many east european countries) isn’t “get rid of them”. It is INTEGRATION. Germany would have a worse economy than the UK now has if it wasn’t for shitloads immigrants in the ’70s.
Just look at the food. Pizza? Kebab? Sushi? Or the “dirty jobs”. Would a German clean the toilets of my favourite bar? Nope.
We got accustomed to the immigrants but somehow forgot to integrate them into our community. Now there are some problems and the easiest way seems to be getting rid of them. 5 years later they realize that someone has to do the work. The people are dying (at least here in Germany) and without immigration we would face huge problems in 10 years.

Voting for people that want your country to die (without knowing it) just out of fear and missunderstanding and not realizing the real problems (again INTEGRATION!!!!!!) is just failure of democrazy. But also it is a failure of democrazy that the old or current administration never fixed those problems although everyone tells them there is a problem. That just sucks but I don’t have a clue how to fix it.

@Tak Sweden is a lot more recognizable when paired with Finland, together they look like a flaccid penis (look up some old Euro coins).

Other than that, I’m sorry for the poor election result you guys had, although I think it’s mostly a sign of the times (Geert Wilders is becoming more than a little famous) I’m hoping this is new age of ignorance is killed off before it escalates any further.

I like ‘democrazy’, let’s keep it! On topic: muslims are not allowed to integrate. They’re obliged to turn us into muslims: the Kalifaat. When I hear about underground Sharian law courts, honour revenge (literal translation), women spending their whole lives between birthbed, kitchen and grocery, and forced marriages with a girl ‘from home’, I get the distinct feeling westerners are forced to integrate, not muslims. That’s the wrong way around. 4th generation Berbers in The Hague call themselves Moroccan first, then a lot of nothing, and Dutch firmly last. On the other hand, if you’re gay in Iran or christian in Indonesia, you probably won’t live to tell.
Don’t tell me about integration. It’s not working.

from what I understand the Swedes had a legitimate chance to vote for a non-erring-on-the-racist-side type party. In Australia, both major parties are against large scale immigration despite the fact that both of the leaders were born overseas. Both parties are also against gay marriage.

In fact, in the state I live in, a debate is going to be held on whether the hijab should be banned because of one far-right politician.

Forgive me if I’m wrong but the polarisation of cultures seems to be extremely counterproductive.

Integration is not equal absorbing
-With integration we live with our difference in a way that work for us all
-With absorbing immigrants should be like the natives

I like integration. Learning to live with the differences of people, sounds like a good deal to me. But, I think a lot of people have misunderstood the concept, and think it’s the same as absorbing. The goal of integration is to make everyone allow the differences of other people.

Also, extremist is the evil, no matter the direction. That must be fought, no matter if it’s left-/right-winged, religious or whatever…

And I still think people who go nuts over “intergration” still have mostly no clue at all what the hell integration actually is!

I am Arab. I am also Muslim on paper. I don’t believe in any religion though. It’s sad to see all that hate. Please stop listening to the media. Muslims like any other kind of people have their good and bad sides.
@Tak: “muslims are not allowed to integrate” that’s bullshit… They do want to convert people to Islam but that goes for most other religions including Christianity. Your idea of Islam is basically that of extremists.
Everyone here feel free to ask me anything if you want to get a different point of view. I’ll try to remember checking this page again :P
