Anonymous submitted: Sweden having a slightly right wing elected government is not comparable to violent situations around the world.
i am not saying that we have it worse here and i’m not saying that we are even close to the situations that are happening around the world, and i’m sorry if i made it sound like i thought so.
what i am saying is that what is going on right now in sweden is laying grounds for that.sverigedeomkraterna, which had 13% of the votes, are not just a “slightly right winged” party. what i am angry about is that when we were begging people to signal boost this, there were next to no support. what i am angry about is that no one cares.

SD scare the shit out of me and so many of my friends and others who live here so you can seriously just fuck off.
Aside from the very good information and points in these links, I’d like to add something that really bothers me about this anon; They seem to use the “Someone has it worse than you so that means you have no right to complain and you should just be happy that you don’t have it worse” logic (and I use the word “logic” here very very loosely).
Anon, listen. Just because Sweden’s current political situation isn’t as bad as in other countries doesn’t mean it’s not bad. It is bad. It’s fucking terrible. SD has gained so much since the last election and if they keep this up they’re going to gain even more in the next four years until the next election. For white cishet swedes this doesn’t matter, but to the rest of us it does because we’re in SD’s “hatezone” in one or several ways. They’re transphobic, homophobic and racist. They don’t want immigrants to come here, they don’t care about trans people and they don’t want it to be legal for same sex couples to adopt, just to mention a few things.
If this party gains even more in the next election it’s going to be a huge problem. Right now they have support from 13% of the people in Sweden (who are allowed to vote). What if they get 20% in the next election? Or more? The more percent they get, the bigger they get, the harder it will be for the other parties to oppose their ideas. That’s why we need to spread this. We need Swedes to educate themselves and realize that we need SD out of here. And we need people in all other countries to read about this and spread this and support us so that we can show them that no one actually wants them in the Swedish parliament.
Read the links provided above, signal boost them, and please don’t send these kinds of messages to people again because it really sounds like you don’t give a shit about our country and you just want us to be quiet and deal with it because we don’t have it as bad as some other countries.
