E gad, again??

The anti-Muslim hate blogs have been saying the previous attacks were inside jobs for the insurance money. That’s gonna be a hard sell now. Or maybe not—they’ll just say they’re coordinated false flag attacks designed to gain sympathy or some ridiculous crap, and their hate-filled followers will believe them.

The background to this is also depressing/interesting.

Far Right Hate Party, who took lessons from Denmark’s Far Right Hate Party swept up 13% of the vote in the national elections.

There’s lots of reasons for this - successful demonisation of working class/under class making them politically toxic to court, means that the Far Right can sweep in and blame The Other for economic hardships. This is happening all over the Europe. UKIP in the UK is the British brand. Wait…I’m slipping off my own topic.

ANYWAYS - the 13%, along with the standard right wing party, meant that the left was scrabbling to form a minority Govt. It proposed a budget that was voted down, with the help of said Far Right party. Cue tumbling Swedish Krona and political free fall.

Government soft fell, and a new election was called. For the end of March. This would have resulted in further weakening of the economy and a cleaner sweep for the Far Right.

Then the Adults in the room said “2 Things. 1. The Nazis are at the door. 2. We were elected to govern. How about we all get together, pass the budget as it - the people voted in a majority for this left wing govt, after all. Let’s keep the Prime Minister, and then freeze out the Far Right in terms of governance.”

Budget passed. Govt said “It’s ok! I just tripped. I didn’t fall. Look! I’m alright now.”

And then 13% of the country took to blogs expressing hatred for the political process and … tea party stuff.

And now burning Mosques.

The sad thing is that Sweden’s race problem dates back into the 80s and 90s. “Laser Man”.

It’s just been largely ignored.

I was amused with Merkel’s recent plea for people not to attend anti-Islam demonstrations in Germany, considering her history of Muslim-bashing.

She doesn’t like the monster she created.

Um…Merkel…is in Germany?
